Greenberg: Reach, not GT5, will win 2010

Friday, 11 December 2009 11:49 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Halo: Reach will be the biggest game of 2010, Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg’s assured Gama, and not Polyphony’s GT5.

“Is it launching next year?” he joked of the racer.

“I’ve seen years and years of mini-games, but I haven’t seen that the game is done. They just released the PSP version – maybe that’s what they’ve been working on. I feel confident that there’s nothing that will compare in size. Halo: Reach will be the biggest game of 2010.”

Reach is expected towards the end of next year: GT5 is slated for a March launch in Japan.

Thanks, EG.

    Seems a bit rich to knock a long development time on one game with another game that has no released *game* information (or footage) and no release date either for the one he’s championing. Also Mr Greenberg should perhaps consider Alan Wake and Magna Carta 2 before mocking games with long development times on rival platforms.

    As #6 points out “biggest” is conveniently open to interpretation too. Biggest sales? Biggest content (not that GT5 appears to be slender on content. And perhaps APB should be considered in the definition too). Biggest marketing spend?

    And why is Mr. Greenberg coming out so aggressively in this manner when he could be crowing about NPD. I hear the best form of defense is attack.

    Anyway, chances are Wii Fit+++ will be the most succesful game of 2010.

    #11 5 years ago
  12. The Hindle

    Greenberg is the reason i hope Microsoft dont win, at least Sony have givien up thier arrogant ways and again they had something to be arrogant about selling 100m consoles with thier first attempt.

  13. ricardolessa

    The Hindle

    Are you insane? Man, for PS2 (and installed base is more than 100m) GT 3: A-Spec sold 14m; you think with me: the installed base of PS3 is 25m, so GT5 will sell something around 4 or 5 millions. Halo: Reach will sell around 8 or 10 m.

    #13 5 years ago
  14. ricardolessa

    Sony is arrogant. The Polyphony’s director is fucking arrogant. Don’t be fanatic. Be realistic. Microsoft and Sony wants MONEY. Just that. Don’t be romantic. That’s the reality of the world.

    #14 5 years ago
  15. Psychotext

    I don’t think it’s quite as clear cut as that ricardolessa (edit – damnit, re post #13). Game sales don’t generally scale linearly with installed base, though arguably GT5 would scale better than most as it has a lot of casual appeal.

    I doubt it’ll outsell any of the old GT games, but it certainly has a chance of pulling in something like 8 million.

    #18 5 years ago
  19. ricardolessa

    Maybe you be right, Psychotext. Maybe. But GT5 sells more than Halo: Reach? Halo: ODST (a low-budget game, made for Bungie’s B team) sold 2 millions in two days. Halo: Reach (huge budget, new graphic engine) will be (like the others Halos) a phenomenon.

    Halo 2 sold 8,5 m. Halo 3 (and the installed base of X360 was lower than nowadays) sold 10m. And Halo: Reach? 10m? 12m?

    #23 5 years ago
  24. onlineatron

    @Blerk

    Agreed, I know it’s not a continuation of Master Chiefs story… but it seems odd they would name it Reach.

    It will give unknowing consumers the impression it’s a spin off akin to Halo Wars rather than a prequel.

    Still… they changed ODST’s name late in the dev cycle so you never know.

    #24 5 years ago
  25. Cort

    Years and years of minigames? What? If he wants to start pointing fingers at GT5 Prologue, can’t Sony just point at ODST and ask why an “expansion” was charged at full price?

  26. Eregol

    I don’t think either game will win 2010.
    MS are way into their prick phase now and need to get their heads out of their asses if they want to keep their lead over Sony.

    #26 5 years ago
  27. Blerk

    It’s kind of dull that they keep going back to Halo whenever they try to prove this point. If they hadn’t noticed, the Sony product they’re ultimately comparing against in each case has been different each time. Different series, different genre. Variety, Microsoft. It’s the spice of life.

    And Halo’s a bit shit.

    That’s down to Sony’s desperate/foolish struggle to create a Halo beater.

    But you can’t deny that Sony’s consoles always provide a better variety in gameplay styles.

    You mean Gears and Halo are shooters. Halo Wars is RTS, Mass Effect and Fable are RPGs, Alan Wake is action/adventure. Forza is Driving, and then there’s those pony quiz games.

    The only thing MS can’t do is platformers. Dunno why, but they just can’t do ‘em.

    #42 5 years ago
  43. Blerk

    The whole ‘you can only get shooters on 360′ argument is basically dead in the water when you consider that 90%+ of the games released get ported to both platforms. So if it was true for one then it would equally have to be true for the other.

    That said, I think Sony do a better job with their first-party stuff. Microsoft does have a better variety mix than they used to have, but Sony still give the impression that they have a better mix.

    Ricardo

    Gt P sold 4m copies and that was bascally the same kind of thing as Halo Odst. And ill point out it sold 4m copies when the Ps3 install base was ony like 19m. Id say Gt 5 will easly do 10m as Gt sells quite a lot in Japan.

    If MW2 only did 1.87m in the US, month 1 (see NPD data today), then GT5 isn’t getting anywhere near that. And whoever said it’ll reach 10m sales WW is dreaming. There are only 25m PS3s or so worldwide – no way more than 1 in 3 people will buy it.

    Halo: Reach will outsell GT5, no doubt, but then MS does have far more consoles in circulation, and FPSs always sell more than racers, no matter how big.

    GT P sold 4m when the Ps3 was being hammered every month robo, In europe its massive, in Japan its massive, In Na is big but Halos bigger. Life time sales for Gt 5 will be 10m of course it wont do that in one day

    #51 5 years ago
  52. The Hindle

    And to correct you Robo, Sony so far have sold 27m Ps3s last time they updated thier statisics

    #52 5 years ago
  53. Doc Robotnik

    okay, so 27, not 25m. I did say ’25 or so’, but thanks for being pedantic.

    No way GT5 will do 10m IMO, but then it can’t be proved now – we’ll see once it’s been out for a while.

    #53 5 years ago
  54. SplatteredHouse

    They should both quit their cat-fighting and caterwauling for once, as it’s abundantly clear that the one to really watch in 2010 is likely to be Konami’s Castlevania, Lords of Shadow. :)

    #54 5 years ago
  55. Eregol

    I must admit that the Castlevania trailers have looked good, and the voice work is of sterling quality, but with the amount of hack and slash games next year I truly don’t see what Castlevania has going for it that the other titles don’t.

    To be honest though.
    Aren’t Halo fanboys the only ones actually interested in getting a new Halo now?
    From what I’ve seen over the interwebz a lot of people are united in the idea that Halo is in decline.
    Then again, I’m only talking about the snapshot I’ve seen.

    #60 5 years ago
  61. Hunam

    I like Greenberg too. Of course he is all up about Xbox, because that’s his job, but he tends to comment more as if he and a friend of a similar position in Sony are having a friendly competition than anything cuntish.

  62. No_PUDding

    You know, reading throguh ths conversation it is true. The onyl game that ISN’T a shooter coming from Microsoft (or tied exclsuie) next year is Fable 3.

    The vast majority of games involve shooting in some respect, though. Even stuff like Ratchet and Clank has guns.

    I agree I think its a streatch to see Zelda next season. But all the Wii needs is one game. In the end, a few years from now, don’t be amazed if The New Super Mario Bros Wii doesn’t outsell and out distance every other game that launched this year. Including, but not limited to CoD MW2. Mario is good as any game I have ever played. And being on the Wii and from nintendo that baby is gonna have legs.

    Not alot of Nintendo love in here lol.
    I am not a fanboy of any system.
    I just think that fun isn’t that hard to manage. Some games hit fun squarly on the head. Tetris for example is Tetris. It is simple, fun, and doesn’t need retooling to continue to be fun. Alot of games are like that. Beyond the window dressing they are at their core unchanged from what made them fun to begin with. Newer doesn’t mean better.
    By the same type of thinking every new game that came out would be amazing. They would be leaps forward. They would be heaps more fun then anything before them. But of course thats not always the case. I have many older games that I still play to this day.
    I still play activly, nearly daily. Phantasy Star Online(GC on my Wii). I still do monthly Mechassult Lan parties. My wife just recently bought Bust a move for the XBLA, nothing new in that game but a new coat of paint. She loves Zuma, pretty basic game, no need or room realy to be retooled. Sometimes updating an old game is all that is needed. I still play Civilization, of course now it is CiV 4. Lots of cases of new not equaling better. Just as many cases of new equaling improvments too. But often that is all it is, improvments. Fundamentaly speaking, is UC2 any different then UCone? Any different then Tomb Raider? Its Indiana Jones in a video game. After Castle Wolfenstin, came Doom, Came Quake, came Unreal, fastforward comes Call of Duty, comes Halo … what comes next owes so much to Castle Wolfenstin and its 8 3.5inch floppy discs so many years ago.
    What you call progress, Pud, I call evolution. We are all still playing Poleposition, Venture, and Pitfall. Except now we call them GT5, Dragon Age:Origins, and Super Mario Bros.
    You see it in movies too. First of all, my wife and I watch White Christmass every year. Its a family tradition, I think that movies was made in the late 50s or early 60s. But you need only to look at old movies being remade, from the literal ones like War of the Worlds)Tom Cruise) to hard to identify ones. Such as old stories retold in new movies. The themes, human experience, and basic stories don’t change too much. The window dressing, that is the settings, special effects, and technology in which they are delivered does. Apply the samething to video games. Esp, in this case to Nintendo and their “dated franchises”.
    Sure it is a Zelda game. Boy saves princess from a big bad. Pretty universial theme if you ask me. Its Zelda, but the manor of wich the game is delivered is going to change. Toss is a few twists and tweaks while leaving the fun untouched and unchanged….that still works. Why because in the end like Zuma, PSO, Tetris, and Zelda the game is fun to play.
    Video games are really not that complicated. The tricky part is convincing consumers that they need to play and buy new ones all of the time.

    Are we doing blocks of text now?

    Evolution is often progress. Sometimes it’s changes, to suit the times, but fundamentally, it’s making things better.

    If you see things thematically, then I can’t help you, but the ludic aspects are fundamentally different nowadays, from how they were even 5-10 years ago.

    It’s clear to me the games you listed, support your argument, but they are 3 of the most archaicly designed games/franchises still around. GT, virtually unchaged since it’s inception, Dragon Age: Baldur’s Gate in 3D, Super Mario Brothers, is just that.

    And even then, those quasi-retro games are still FUNDAMENTALLY different from games we played 20 years ago. Due to the times, due to innovations, due to fads, due to genuine progress/evolution.

    Outside of what you want to call it, if you can’t FEEL the evolution, then your handle seems only to be factually correct. You’ve missed out on observing your hobby, this medium of entertainment/expression grow.

    No he was a good guy. I’m not saying he wasn’t. Just because a guy prefers the 360 over PS3 does not make him a bad guy!

    I wish people stop accusing me of disliking people like that. I have friends who feel the same way in real life and it’s a blast to just joke about shit like that while in Bestbuy or anywhere games are stationed.

    One of my best friends here on this site prefers the 360 over the PS3 and that crazy nut would be G1GA :D . Hell I turn on my 360 just to watch him play MW2 even though I’m still on my PS3 at the same time getting trophies.

    I wish pracer would come back though, I hope he’s ok and well. He just fell of radar….

    #108 5 years ago
  109. OlderGamer

    I think you complety miss the point Pud. Worse it is the point you made, or tried to make.
    I post 80 your responded to me. I said that if it works why change it? If it wasn’t broken, why fix it. I think there is a vast difference between keeping something true to its core fundamentals(the parts that work) and changing it just for the sake of changing it. Tetris fro example, simply doesn’t need changing. It works. It is the personification of fun boiled down. Simplicity. And it works. It has spawned several “takes” on itself. From Tetris 2 to Puzzle Fighters. But falling blocks, to create lines with increasingly quick decents/challange has not been changed. I think we both agree there. The samething can be applied to almost any game you can name. All of them have their roots somewhere else and sometime else in the past. Very few games(I can’t think of a single one) that don’t have roots. Movies for that matter are just books in motion. Books are witten recorded stories. Etc. Progress. Evolution. Whatever.
    My point was simple. And is rock solid. If a game has(at its core) a working model for fun, be it CoD, GT5, or one of Nintendos franchise games, why mess with that? You critized Nintendo for putting out the same game franchises. I asked why not? They are fun to play. And Nintendo knows that millions of kids(gamers that not yet played every Zelda game ever made) turn ten each year. And each year those same kids pick up a controler, maybe for the first time, and they can experience the fun to be found in a Zelda game.
    I think it is a great stratgey. While I may be burnt out on Zelda, I know my kids aren’t. They love the games. More power to them. To them and Nintendo for understanding that and providing a solid game experience.

    My point was not necessarily a criticism. My point was that Citizen Kane is virtually unwatchable by today’s standards, and yet it paved the way for much of today’s standards.

    I was saying if something isn’t broken, it should still be fixed. Becuase fixing things is evolution, it’s the change, and it’s the progress.

    Sure, every kid who’s turned ten, can play Super Mario Brothers, into the future, but if these archaic game designs are kept always, then those ten yer olds will always turn into the same Miyamoto-inspired designers when they grow up.

    What you miss is the games that aren’t archaic, most importantly, the new design ethics. Miyamoto’s era of gaming was fun, games and gamers want games to break free of JUST fun. Refined fun. People want more now. Things aren’t broken but there is change. And it has been due for a while.

    Pud, I am not 100% sure I agree with your pov. To me what your saying is that games NEED to offer more then just fun. I think in today hyper serious world, a good dose of simple fun is the real needed thing. I think when devs go such realism and life reflecting issues in game content, for me, much of the imerssion factor gets lost. I can get lost in a Mario or Zelda World, I can get lost in a tolken inspired setting, but when faced with terriorst(for example) I am all too often reminded of headline news. To me, thats not fun.
    I do however totaly understand your pov. I think you are also feeling that games can define themself as a more mature and hard hitting media. And in that respect they can show room for progress and have indeed come a long way from their simple line creating, key collecting, time trial beating, and princess saving past. Understood.
    I am just not sure if I feel that those progresses are fully a good thing. I hope there will always be a place for a Miyamoto inspired adventure in our gaming world.
    Good chat, always nice to talk about games.
