Well, we probably should've been able to predict the results, but we honestly believed the Call of Duty craze had impacted the PSXE readership.
But according to the latest poll result, it really hasn't. Nearly 60% of those who voted said they're just tired of Activision's blockbuster franchise, and aren't interested in any of the upcoming titles. One of the big complaints we often hear is the over-saturation of shooters on the market today, along with the fact that we apparently require a CoD entry every single year. So yeah, we can understand how it all gets a little tiring. That being said, though, exactly 1/4 of participants believe Treyarch can bang Black Ops out of the park; they evidently put plenty of faith into the World at War designer. So there are still some hopeful PSXE readers out there and for our part, we just want to play great games…don't really care about the name on the box. We're also intrigued by that "adventure/FPS" Call of Duty installment by Sledgehammer Games, but we need more information before passing further judgment.
This week, we'd like to know what you think about the new Mass Effect 2 on PS3 announcement. While on the surface it appears to be a 100% good for fans of Sony's machine, some have asked how it's worthwhile without the original title. Furthermore, as it won't be here until January, some are wondering if they'll even care by that time; that's a pretty big gap between the 360 and PS3 releases. So what say you?
