Now to play Devil's Advocate on both side of the Fence.

Good: Obviously MS is prepping for the Nextbox and new IPs on that.

Bad: One exclusive of a semi-tired franchise to tide over 360 fans.

Oh, and I know that this list is missing a couple exclusives on all the platforms too; Deadly Premonition comes to mind. And DL titles aren't on there either, but they still count.
StanLee  +   1153d ago
It seems Microsoft has already moved its major studios to next gen development. Playground Games made Forza Horizon while Turn 10 works on a true next gen Forza sequel. 343i has already revealed work on the next Halo has started and People Can Fly are developing Gears of War Judgement which leads me to assume Epic is already at work on a next gen Gears of War game. I haven't seen anything on Crytek's XBox exclusive title since it was announced almost 2 years ago so I'm assuming that will be released next gen as well. Microsoft doesn't have many exclusive IPs so it's not surprising to see them ready for a next gen console release by prepping what they do have for a console release timetable.

This --> "Turn 10 works on a true next gen Forza sequel" just made my day! Forza alone is reason enough for me to pony up for new hardware. I hope it's a release title and they continue to support triple screens.

Correction..MS has one 'ANNOUNCED' exclusive for the first HALF of 2013
We ALL know in June 2013, the new consoles will show up at E3 2013.

So let's go month for month and see WHEN the BIG exclusives and Multiplats come out to get a the true whole picture of what the gaming landscape will be prior to 2013.

First let's set up January for the now 7 year old 360..

On January first MS will have come off a holiday where the biggest exclusive of 2012, Halo 4 will be less than 2 months old and will still chart huge in 2013. Not only that, but just like the VGA world premiere trailer showed H4's co-op spartan Ops episodic campaign starts in 23 Jan 2013.

While the the PS3 gets a worldwide Jan release of Japan's Nu No Kuni that came out in Nov of this year.

Now to the rest of the big games from Jan to June


Devil May Cry
Nu no kuni (2012) US/EU rlease


Dead Space 3
Metal Gear Rising
Bioshock: Infinite
Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (PS3)


Tomb Raider
God of War: Ascension (PS3)
Gears of War: Judgement (360)


Dead Island: Riptide


GTA V (if not pushed up)
Last of Us (PS3)


E3 2013 arrives where we are speculating that the Xbox 720 and the PS4 will be announced.

But if you can speculate about other titles on other systems that have no release date and are simply projected to release in 2013, then you have to point to the the fact that we know two things that are projected for the 360.

- Summer of Arcade of Xbox Live with projected titles that were shown on last year's E3 stage

- Bungie's Destiny which is rumored to be an Xbox 360 exclusive.

At the end of the day,the most notable exclusives early on is that the God of War/ Gears of War prequel battle will be great for both consoles.

And that Naughty Dogs Last of Us will be huge for the PS3, but it comes in the shadow of the collossus (pun intended) Grand Theft Auto 5, which will stop the entire gaming planet when released in the Rockstar 'launch window'

Great times to be a gamer for all systems

Evil, Destiny will not be exclusive. There's no way. Its Actiblizz.
EVILDEAD360  +   1152d ago
@ bicfitness

Yeah..again Destiny is only rumored to be an Xbox console exclusive. Bungieis also to be hiring on the PS3 dev side of things.

The game is supposed to come next Fall, but who knows what will happen at this point.

omi25p  +   1152d ago
I don't see why it matters, There are so many multiPlatforms next year it didn't matter.

Its like this year, The was really only 1 big PS3 exclusive (ASBR) Did it matter? NOPE
NukaCola  +   1153d ago

I here you saying they are prepping next gen but listen to it.

Turn 10 Prepping Forza 5
Epic prepping Gears 4
343i prepping Halo 5

This is still the same games we have played for years. MS needs to have their studios do something else. Turn 10 could make an RPG, Epic could make a fighting game, 343i is stuck with Halo, but other Ms developers could start doing something original and fresh. It doesn't hurt to innovate a little.
ALLWRONG  +   1153d ago
Like Sony isn't working on the next gen SOCOM 14 or Uncharted 4 or Killzone 4 right?
MikeMyers  +   1153d ago
Why would Turn 10 make an RPG? Would you expect Polyphony Digital to make an RPG? What Microsoft needs is to invest into more studios and I think they have. I would like to see Rare do more.
Riderz1337  +   1153d ago
Prepping for Gears 4 when Gears of War: Judgement isn't even out yet? Epic is Putting such dedication for Judgement I see...
SilentNegotiator  +   1153d ago
@All wrong

But they ALSO brought us incredible, unique games like inFamous, LBP, Demon's Souls, etc.

That's what puts the gaming experience of Playstation a mile ahead of the competition.

Silent Negotiator

Microsoft didn't bring unique Exclusives?

Excuse me while i through Alan wake out of the window.

Lets also think of Games that originaly only released on xbox then later came out on everything else.

Bioshock and Mass effect.

Then think how Gears has revolutionized this gen by showing us how powerful the current consoles are and how a cover system should be done.
#1.2.7 (Edited 1152d ago ) | Agree(3) | Disagree(6) | Report
SilentNegotiator  +   1152d ago

Alan Wake was going to be a PC game (and originally open world, but I'm SURE we don't have console limitations, that came into play after Microsoft stepped in, to thank for that /s) and Bioshock launched on PC same day as 360.

And Gears was only revolutionary in popularizing generic cover-based romps.

Xbox 360 has 13 currently untitled exclusive games slated for 2013. Not including Kinect games.

Its useless, any facts you come up with, knowledgeable predictions and good opinions N4G will just disagree and spin everything.

Leave it to this site predict MS gaming future since they know everyting.

Nobody wins excepts the Sony fans its always about them, am I right N4G?

Either way, Gears and a bunch of XBL titles and third party games should tie people over until E3, Simple.

Godchild1020  +   1153d ago
I'm sure Microsoft has some XBLA titles coming exclusively to the 360 next year and maybe a hidden retail title that is not Kinect required. Then again, they could always leave to third party like the did with the first Xbox.

Why does all the sites that talk about the games coming out in 2013 use that image, if there are errors on it. Where is MLB 13: The Show?

for the ps3 side they also left out until dawn and rain.
pr0digyZA  +   1153d ago
There are quite a few mistakes, and omissions for instance I see they are missing a few PC exclusives like : starforge,warface (crytek), marvel heroes online, x:rebirth (looks stunning) and mount and blade 2 (on a new engine).
I think this does give a good idea though.

Heres another interesting one:
Godchild1020  +   1153d ago
That is pretty good, except Scribblenuats Unlimited is already out. I picked up the limited edition and got a Pink hat. I will have a grand time with my Handhelds next year. Bubs+

A great list of all the exclusives across each platform.

As an owner of both consoles, I can't help but be disappointed with Microsoft's steady decline of exclusives over the last couple of years. Even if they have XBLA titles, that's still isn't enough because 9 times out of 10 every game isn't going to be a sure fire hit.

One thing that no gamer will deny is that at least Sony had a healthy dose of exclusives this generation. Last Of Us will be the game everyone will be talking about next year. I can guarantee that 100%.

Don't think you should ride of XBLA so early.

I bought Minecraft over 2 months ago and its the best 1600 MS points that I have spent...I always wondered what the hype was for this pixelated game but after playing it I see what people were talking about.

MS made a smart move on making MC a 360 console would be surprise how many kids ask there mom for a 360 just to play MC.

Mark my words as the economy is getting worst more people will be looking to buy XBLA and indie games over $60 retail games.

On the PS3 side
1. Ni no Kuni (Not exclusive, released in 2010 DS and 2011 PS3)
2. Atelier Ayesha (Released in 2012)
3. Tales of Xillia/2 (Released in 2011 and 2012)
4. Yakuza 5 (released in 2012)

99% of the gamers on N4G are US or EU people. Ninokuni DS isn't the same game(graphics are way more ambitious on PS3, and the battle system is different, for exemple), and none of those games has ever reached US or EU. All those games release EXCLUSIVELY ON PS3 in 2013 in our territories. Except Yakuza 5, who has no date (and may never have) for now.

ps: Sorry for my english.
#4.1 (Edited 1153d ago ) | Agree(14) | Disagree(4) | Report | Reply
Godchild1020  +   1153d ago
None of those games released in the US/EU. So they are relatively new to us. Also Yakuza 5 just released this month in Japan or later this month.

No one mentioned The Last Story, XenoBlade or Phantom Breaker when they were getting localized here in the states or Europe. So, why do it to the Ps3?
bicfitness  +   1153d ago
The PS3 Ni-no is vastly different from the DS version. They have similar stories, but everything else is different. So it is exclusive.
M2-  +   1153d ago
@francknara6, @Godchild1020
Why is this logic always used for Japanese PS3 games? If it is not localized it does not exist. Do you not see the flaw in this logic?
Godchild1020  +   1153d ago
It does count as a game, but it can't be singled out for being released in the US after a period of time because it was released in another region before reaching another.

I asked you the same thing about The Last Story and Xenoblade, why is it that it is still consider an exclusive and a new release for that system when it was releasing last year, but not PS3 Japanese localized games?

The game is still a new release for that year in a new region and that is why it should be listed. Your post was so vague that, we can take it anyway and it could be completely wrong as to what you were trying to get at.

Think he forgot to add Activision/Bungie Destiny to the Exclusives for Xbox 360.
BigBoss1964  +   1153d ago
Bungie's next game is coming for the PS3 as well
RuleofOne343  +   1153d ago
This all info from the leaked contract & seeing as how no one at either Act/ bungie has stated anything to the contrary , am guessing contract is still valid.

@BigBoss1964 not till after it has been on 360 & its predecessor

@shonen_82 360 & Predecessor

@rbailey first exclusively on 360 & it's predecessor a year before all others .
PS4isKing_82  +   1153d ago
I believe they said that's coming for 720. I could be wrong tho.

Actually Destiny is going to be multiplatform.
PS4isKing_82  +   1153d ago
You mean "successor" lol it's predecessor would mean the original Xbox lol they don't make games for that anymore :)
GraveLord  +   1153d ago
The initial leaked contract stated they were considering a PS3 version. The latest leak from a few weeks ago mentions PS3 as a platform.

The game was going to be an accidental exclusive, but it looks like they were able to port to PS3.
iNathan  +   1153d ago
Next Gen Focus ?
i think so
JeffGUNZ  +   1153d ago
Yeah, that appears to be the most logical answer. It's evident that this E3 will be the announcement of the Nextbox and the holiday season will be the release. I am sure all these Xbox 360 games being released next fall will also be nextbox games with a 360 version.

It's pretty clear both Microsoft end Sony are waiting for next gen to show all the games.
Most of the games will come for both current and next gen, it would be stupid to show the games on current before showing next gen versions. PS3 and X360 will still have strong support, but expect BIG things from Sony and MS next year.

Hicken  +   1153d ago
Sony's studios and some 3rd party ones are also creating next gen projects for the PS4; why are they still able to produce large numbers of exclusives for their CURRENT generation console?

Good times won't be most of next year, when the only thing to play(brought to you by Microsoft; let's not get into the multiplat issue, which Microsoft doesn't have to do much to get, and are equally as available elsewhere) will be Gears. You have no choice but to wait, essentially until E3 when the next system is announced, and then until fall/winter when it's released.
Belking  +   1153d ago
I really don't care about what sony is doing right now. I'm too busy enjoying my ps3. I won't be buying the next PS until maybe a year or two after it launches anyway. I will be there launch day for the next xbox though. There will still be plenty to play next year for the 360 too for me. I love it. Xbox has been awesome this gen and the next one is coming next year. Its only gonna get better. Xbox and xbox live is where it's at.
stage88  +   1152d ago
@Belking Disagree with you completely. Xbox has been absolutely horrific this gen. Nickle and diming customers every chance they get, focus on casual games the second half of the gen and producing the same 3 franchises with barely any new IP's. if anything this gen has permanently decided that me buying an Xbox next gen is out of the question.
Ben_Grimm  +   1152d ago

Large numbers of exclusives Hicken, like what All Stars and Kart Racing? The exclusives they listed have been known since last year. The Last Gaurdian has been even longer than that.

Gears is only listed for next year that we know of it doesn't mean that there isn't anything else that hasn't been reveled.

Plus they haven't even mentioned State of Decay which will hopefully lead into an MMO they have planned for the next Xbox.

But of course you already knew this right?

MS has 20 studios and 10 unannounced games there is no question that they are prepping for next gen, I really think next gen ms will have ips out the ass old and new I'm pretty sure they are trying to bring back Killer Instinct possibly as a launch title cause they were trying to get it patented. but they do need to invest more in the 360
I know they said they have a 3 console cycle plan and to be honest it does seem like it is going the way they planed but give the fans something for making it go that way. yea 3rd party titles are good and we normally do get the better version but where are the games from you, dam all the multimedia shit you put the gamers first then focus on all the media stuff.
