final-fantasy-xiii-01-copgdcrumours.jpg What games will be at GDC 2008? The infamous Surfer Girl says three of the above titles will be there, along with four more “definites”. We can confirm six others.

In a response to a poster who asks what games will be at GDC this year, Surfer Girl says “YES” to seven games. These games are MotorStorm 2, Alan Wake, Too Human, InFamous, LittleBigPlanet, Killzone 2 and Gears of War 2.

There are three other games that might possibly make it to the event: SOCOM PS3, Metal Gear Solid 4, and WipEout HD.

Unlike last year, Sony and Nintendo won’t be having keynote presentations, so it might be wishful thinking to expect anything on the scale of Sony’s reveal of Home and LittleBigPlanet.

On the other hand, there is a Microsoft day booked for Tuesday, along with an hour long Microsoft keynote. Big things could be coming from the Xbox camp.

What games can we confirm for GDC? Mercenaries 2, Far Cry 2, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and Battlefield: Bad Company.

In addition to these, Square Enix will be presenting their Final Fantasy XIII engine, and three big Fable 2 secrets will be revealed. You heard it here first.

Make sure to come to Ripten for all of your GDC coverage.

*Update* –  Surfer Girl has since retracted her predictions, blaming sleep deprivation for her original outburst.  Please read about this here, along with further titbits on what will be at GDC’08.


  1. Touted not so much, but they will be exploring their engine in a tutorial, which will mainly look at the game’s destructive environment.

  2. I’m not surprised that Sony won’t have a keynote speech because at most of the events last year they were showing games that would be coming out in 08. Microsoft NEEDS to have a keynote as no one has any idea what is going to be on the system this year. I’m interested just by the fact that they basically have no first party, hell their only franchise left that hasn’t put out a game is Fable.

  3. As a ps3 owner (not fanboy) I expect to receive updates on Metal Gear Solid 4, and Home. Also an in game XMB which is needed badly.

  4. xbox has nothing to show this year they ran out of everything.Everything went to 2007 from Xbox and ps3 is gonna come big because microsoft cant compete this year in less gears of war 2 comes out this year or halo wars is good. Other then ps3 has lots coming

  5. mmmm…Santos, let’s look at what 360 games are coming out this year:

    (And the games listed above that do not have ‘exclusive’ to the side’. However you need to keep in mind that usually on multi-platform games the 360 version always gets higher reviews.
