It isn't often that Sony has a bare holiday season and in truth, one could argue that this fall isn't "bare."
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale should be a really solid title, and everyone is hoping that Assassin's Creed III: Liberation gives the PlayStation Vita a much-needed boost. But obviously, there's no Uncharted or Gran Turismo or God of War or anything like that to wow the PS3 players. And that being the case, are they more likely to turn toward Halo 4 ?
I'm not saying they'll run out to buy an Xbox 360 (if you don't have one yet, you probably never want one), but for multiple console owners, it could be tough to ignore something like Halo 4 . It's getting rave reviews already and gamers are gamers…they just want to play the best stuff available. I've played every Halo through to completion – yes, that includes ODST – and I have every intention of playing Halo 4 . Well, eventually. I don't really have the time right now, as you might've guessed.
I only wonder if the blockbuster for the 360 is enough for Sony fans to just forget about the PS3 for a month or so. Of course, the PS3 has Beyond: Two Souls , The Last Of Us and God of War: Ascension on the horizon, so the defection will only be temporary. Still, it doesn't necessarily bode well for the current holiday season…
