These posts will detail the video games ready to explode onto the gaming world for 2008. Even though Sony apparently has several unrevealed IPs in store it will announce (sorry, can't find the link to that story right now) most everyone still knows what the big hits for their year are meant to be. Metal Gear Solid 4, LittleBigPlanet, and Resistance 2 are the three most hyped exclusives for the Playstation 3 in 2008. Those linked sites give you a good idea of how complete the three games are. Resistance 2 is set to be released apparently in the fall, Metal Gear Solid 4 in June despite earlier beliefs that it'd be out for Christmas 2007, and LittleBigPlanet leaves everyone completely puzzled as for a release date. It was set for 2007 as well, but got seriously delayed, and is perhaps going to be ready for September.
Metal Gear Solid 4 is certainly going to be releasing on time, as it has been recently announced that it is fully playable from start to finish now. The highly anticipated sequel in the Metal Gear Solid series is apparently going to be the last to be worked on by the head honcho Hideo Kojima. This isn't really to be trusted, however, because Kojima has stated that lots of the MGS games were going to be his last. Don't worry for the life of the series though, because he also recently said that MGS will go on forever, like James Bond films.
Resistance 2 is also obviously a sequel to the original Resistance: Fall of Man, a first-person shooter exclusive to the PS3. In this game as well as the original, the player is Nathan Hale of the US Army, and he combats the chimeras (you'll probably know them as "alien things") that are destroying humanity. Apparently, though the original was set in England, this game will be set in the U.S., but the game was only recently even announced. Here are the details known thus far:
"The game will feature two campaigns, one single player campaign which will follow the story of Nathan Hale. The other campaign will support up to 8 players online or 2 player splitscreen cooperative play with classes including a medic, heavy weapons, and special ops class. The online multiplayer aspect of the game supports up to 60 players online.Unconfirmed reports say the game will support three character classes--including a heavy weapons, special operations, and the all-important medic. It will also incorporate vehicles, including the alien-built Stalker, which will have cloaking abilities."
LittleBigPlanet is a cute platformer game that has long been touted as the game you must buy a Playstation for. It is mostly known for its unique look and level editor features, that are said to allow players to make their own levels (see the video linked in the first paragraph when I first stated the game's title) and upload them for the community. The game, again, has been woefully delayed and I can't really trust when it'll come out.
