Nothing as big as Halo 3 this year, admits Kim

Newly promoted Microsoft entertainment business development VP Shane Kim has admitted that there’s nothing in the firm’s 360 line-up this year likely to top Halo 3 in terms of size.

“I think the platform is just as strong, if not stronger [than last year],” he told Next-Gen. “That’s hard to say, because we had incredible titles last year with BioShock, Halo 3, Mass Effect and Call of Duty 4. … Especially when you look at Halo 3, which was a phenomenal industry event, it’s easy to look back and go ‘you can’t possibly be as strong.’

“But if you look at the initial success of Grand Theft Auto IV on Xbox 360, that’s been super, and we have exclusive [DLC] content coming too. Gears of War 2 is going to be huge, Fable 2 is going to be huge.

“So I don’t know. I believe that we’re going to have just as big of a year in terms of content on Xbox 360. Maybe we don’t have a particular exclusive that’s as big as Halo 3, but I do think that Gears 2 and Fable 2 will be really big hits.”
