2009 Wrap Up

43 posts in this topic

Well 2008 was a huge year for the gaming industry, so alot were wondering how well 2009 would do and I think judging by how well the industry is doing in today’s economical climate 2009 was another successful year.NintendoStill the market leader, games like Wii Sports, Wii Fit and the New Super Mario Bros being the top sellers of the year for the console. However with a lack of key Wii releases their grip as teh market leader seems to be dwindling.Wii Fit is currently the second best selling videogame in history with 22.5 million copies sold as of October 30, 2009 !!!SonySony unveiled the new PSP Go @ E3, looks good but a lot of moans from consumers with the withdrawal of the use of UMD. Great games for PSP came out this year, a good fair share of RPG’s including Star Ocean, Phantasy Star, Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy Agito XIII. The new Resistance on the PSP showed of prob some of the best graphics on the handheld.Other such releases such as Assassins Creed, Rock Band and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, really showed that the PSP is coming alongAnd you could not own a PSP and not have Littlebigplanet, one of the most popular games for Sony and it made its debut on the PSP this year.PS3 dropped their price for PS3 so Sony saw some impressive sales figures for this year.The latter part of 2008 saw the Beta Test for PlayStation Home – Sony’s community-based social gaming networking service, after being delayed many times. Sony still state that PS Home is still “open beta” and expect it to be like that for some time.2009 saw the unveiling of the Slim PS3, which was received very well .At 2009’s E3 Sony stated the will be releasing a Motion Controller in 2010

:/To the joy of XBOX users, 2009 saw the rise of many users complaining of the yellow light of death, however even with these rises the amount it affects is still very low compared to XBOXWhats New was launched in 2009 – which displays information and news from the PlayStation websiteVidZone was launched too - allowing users to watch music videos for on their PS3 or streamed to their PSPSony and Micorsoft both implemented social networking sites Facebook and TwitterSony had some top exclusives Killzone 2, infamous, Littlebigplanet, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation to name a few.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ko9xC6TMdiw]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcp6G4JQEpchttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUPAyGWKd6cMicrosoftFollowing suit MS lowered their prices for all their consoles in 2009, different versions of the console came out throughout the year. The MW2 bundle was a flat black finish and the Resident Evil bundle came with a Red finish. MS also released a 250gb limited edition console.MS again stole the show at E3 with their masterpiece Project Natal - a "controller-free gaming and entertainment experience"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_txF7iETX0As well as implementing Facebook and Twitter, MS also implemented Last Fm and Zune for users to use on their console2009 also was the year you could watch Sky TV on your XBOX, another addition to MS ensuring it is the ultimate entertainment machine.E3 2009 saw the exclusive announcements of Crackdown 2, Left 4 Dead 2 and Halo: Reach, as well as live demos for Halo 3: ODST, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction and Alan Wake. Metal Gear Solid: Rising was also unveiled, making it the first Metal Gear game to appear on the Xbox 360.

Showing off members performances on array of games from StreetFighter 4, Grid, Fifa10 and Modern Warfare to name a few. The success of this channel has come on leaps and bounds, receiving thousands of views for uploaded videos. Keep it up.http://www.youtube.com/user/VIP2GAMING :Y:Top Games for VIP2Many great games were released in 2009, but of course we all have faves. Classics like Fifa and Modern Warfare would always be great thread pullers. But without doubt StreetFighter 4 was the most popular game for VIP2 heads in 2009 with over a THOUSAND PAGES for the thread and it is still very active to this date.Most if not all have the game, so many fights have between all have been done to see who is top dog. We have some good fighters on VIP2 Gundam aka Hassan, Skema and Fitz to name a few. Also a kinda newbie, whose name I can never say, came and duppied a fair amount of ppl so hats off to that French sounding dude who always chooses Cammy.Special mention to Logan “eat, sleep StreetFighter 4” Sama, was very poor when the game came out, but has improved vastly and one of the top players on here now.Due to the popularity of SF4 and the vast amount of good players on here, a fair few meet up regular at the Casino to play on te arcade. Again another sign of how well this room is, proper community feel.And finally hats off to all who attended the Street Fighter comp with JME in toe.All videos from that event can be seen at the VIP2 Gaming Channel

LMFAOI pointed this out. Man would let off an ultra ASAP. Man didn't even have to be near the other player. Man even got 2 ultras in one game and bodged both of them. Easily VIP2s worst gamer ever.
