Microsoft doesn’t want to overhype 2009

Microsoft Aaron Greenberg is happy about 2008.

In recent interview with G4TV, Greenberg ranted about all the triple A titles Micrsoft released last year for Xbox 360 and how these titles went on to become top sales for the green machine in 2008.

So, what are the titles? You don` need to be a rocket scientist to figure out Left 4 Dead, Call of Duty: Worlds at War and Gears of War 2 were top sellers in 2008.

What else did he say? Xbox 360 has 1 million unit lead over PS3 in Europe, Xbox 360 can coexist in the same universe with Wii without an atom explosion and Sony is destined to reduce the price of the PS3 sooner than later if they wish to remain in the game.

What about 2009 lineup? Nothing new besides the announcement of Halo Wars and Halo 3 :ODST.

To paraphrase Greenberg here: “Microsoft will announce whatever they have for this year when those games are ready to launch”
