We predict yet more predictions!

The heralding of a new year is always an exciting time in the gaming industry. Those games that players have been waiting years to get our hands on are now just a few months away from their release dates. Companies that have held onto the names and ideas behind their products are finally given the green light to unveil their masterpiece to the world. More titles and companies emerge from the market miasma, and gamers swoon at all the news.

Since it's only been a few days since the start of 2008, Cody "Micajah" Bye figured it would be best to issue his own predictions for 2008 and touch on some topics that his colleagues John "Boomjack" Hoskin and Garrett Fuller did not. These "predictions" are in no particular order, but are merely a few of the "big items" that may be trolling across computer screens throughout the year. He has laid out eight of these "predictions" (to represent 2008) so sit back, relax, then proceed to throw rotten food at him when you finish reading.
