2K Presidents Expects Fewer AAA Titles This Christmas

2K president Christoph Hartmann expects that this Christmas might see fewer triple-A games than previous years.

"I think this holiday season is a little bit lighter in triple-A games than last year. It's actually a good holiday to put something out," Hartmann said after announcing Borderlands' 23rd October release date.

Hartmann then explained that the decision to push Mafia II, Red Dead Redemption and BioShock 2 into 2010 was taken in order to ensure that they are all released in top quality.

"I think it [the decision] has nothing to do with the release window," he explained. "It's that the quality bar goes higher and higher. Ultimately, to be commercially successful, you need a triple-A product. And everyone knows pushing a product out the door just isn't going to get you there, so they're going to do the right thing."

2K Presidents Expects Fewer AAA Titles This Christmas

i dont think there has beena AAA game in years if im honest. Fallout 3 was close but still way behind most of the series so really only a AA game.there's no innovation just better graphics, where there is something new the rest of the game will suck. lots of A games (IE expensive and massive hype) but nothing thats actually great

"there's no innovation just better graphics"Thats exacly what an AAA title is, AAA refers to the quality of the game (looks,sounds,physics) and not innovation or fun (which should be the actual definition of quality), the gaming industry is just screwed these days, it has too many kiddies who dont know what a really good game is to please.
