    Owning a PlayStation is looking to be pretty good next year.

    - God Of War: Ascension
    - Beyond: Two Souls
    - The Last Of Us

    if only we were getting The Last Guardian, i think this could have been the year of PlayStation all over again. needless to say i didn’t buy any PS3 exclusives this year.

  • Ernice Gilbert

    Yeah, not many PS3 exclusives this year, but 2013 is looking awesome. Maybe The Last Guardian could be a next-gen title? Who knows.

  • Ghost250

    i’m thinking the last guardian is gonna be playstation 3′s swan song. similar to what Skyward sword was to the wii.

  • Ernice Gilbert

    Hmm, it might just be. Next year will be all sorts of exciting, man. And a very expensive year to be a gamer!

  • Ghost250

    an the crazy thing is E3 is still coming up and who knows what sony will announce, new games for this year maybe even PS4.

  • Ernice Gilbert

    Exactly. So The Last Of Us, God of War: Ascension, Beyond: Two Souls, possibly other announcements and, wait for it…. PS4. Yeah, pockets, burned.

  • TheGrimOfDeath

    I think that a Multiplayer Component shouldn’t be included in the game. Just make Co-Op and that would be fine with the 30 hour campagin.

  • Ernice Gilbert

    @Grim: Why not?

  • TheGrimOfDeath

    @nick: Well, it’s just that this game has the “feeling” of not being MP worthy. Is it going to be like Uncharted 3? Why would you want something similar to Uncharted 3?

    It’s just like Bioshock Infinite, I’m happy to hear that there is no MP because it just wasn’t supposed to be like that. They are focusing on the SP and that is what I love.

    hopefully they do a collectors edition, and this time for once can we see a making of docco included?
    cant believe how much they have fallen, i mean not even 3 years ago they use to be the bog standard for CEs, and now were lucky if we get 1 a year!
    hell the last CE i bought that had a making of docco was the pandoras chest edition for GOW3!
