With No Huge PS3 Exclusive, Will Sony Fans Turn To Halo 4?

There really isn't much besides PlayStation All-Stars for PS3 fans this holiday season. So maybe they won't be able to resist the lure of Halo 4... (Culture, Halo 4, PS3, Xbox 360)

Why do you have to choose? I can love my PS3 exclusives, while still loving Microsoft exclusives as well. People who only own a PS3 won't suddenly go and buy an Xbox though for Halo 4, just because there aren't MAJOR exclusives coming out really soon. They're down the road, but they're definitely coming. I am glad that Halo 4 seems to have turned out really well, I can't wait to check it out when I get the chance.

First of all, the PS3 still has PlayStation All-Stars and LittleBigPlanet Karting releasing this month. Both games are only expanding the great library the PS3 has and offering new experiences for gamers.

Next, isn't it a little late in this gen to make "Jumping ship" articles? It's ridiculous how the 360 getting a good exclusive like Halo 4 is being so dramatically overblown, I mean havent the PS3 and 360 both gotten their own big releases every now and then over the past 6-7 years?

I really hope that gamers behave a lot more decent when the PS3 gets God of War: Ascension, The Last of Us, Beyond, etc and dont make stupid articles like "Are 360 owners going to turn to PS3 because of the new God of War?"

Oh man, totally forgot about All Stars coming out... Yeah, that's a major exclusive that's looking really nice. LBP Karting seems great as well, dang it all... There are too many great games coming out lately, I don't have enough money...
MaxXAttaxX  +   685d ago
That's a silly question.
Most PlayStation fans won't just suddenly care about Halo if they never have before.

I don't remember anyone asking if Xbox fans were going to jump ship when they didn't have any exclusive while PS3 kept getting them.

I would say....

...no, I don't think they would turn to Halo. Not after 6 games.

With No Huge PS3 Exclusive, Will Sony Fans Turn To Halo 4? Ok so Im not trying to sound trollish but 360 didnt have exclusives many of times during the launch of a PS3 exclusive and it didnt matter to them. So why would Halo matter to some PS3 fanboy. All Im saying is if you're a true gamer and love great games then it shouldnt matter. A great game is just that.
Snookies12  +   686d ago
Well said, a great game is a great game no matter what platform it's on...
joab777  +   686d ago
I agree completely. I think quite a few ppl own both now. I will play halo but it wont be for awhile...too much on my plate. It looks as though it may b the best entry since the 1st. With AC 3 's below expected showing, it may get goty nod.

But to the point. This has happened often and one thing will happen. Ps3 owners, unlike 360 diehards will simply hav no choice to make between black op2 and halo 4. Ps3 cod players will continue to rise and more will be playing blops on ps3 than xbox. Myself, i am finishing dishonored and borderlands, then ac3 (which must be good). Then its ni no kuni and bioshock. Cant wait.
LX-General-Kaos  +   686d ago
I am pretty sure that quite a few will. Halo 4 looks to be the shooter of the year as of now.

One game a system does not make.

Particularly one that is a sequel and of the same quality and style of its successors.

Halo 4 may be game of the year for some, but if Halo 3, ODST, and Reach didn't make them jump I really doubt this will.

It all comes down to preference.
Hicken  +   686d ago
You're breaking character again. No signature at the end, and not a very well thought-out comment.

Halo is a pretty highly acclaimed franchise, and 4 looks like it'll be a worthy addition, but does ANYBODY usually jump ship entirely because one console is getting one exclusive while the other isn't?

Do you expect people waiting on The Last of Us to sell their PS3 and instead get a 360 because Halo's coming out? Replace The Last of Us with Ni no Kuni, or any of another dozen games; would it make sense for people get rid of the system those games are on simply because of Halo?

Has this been your true face all along?

I am very intrested in seeing how allstars shakes out. Something about it right now, hasn't gelled with me for some reason. But Lpbk, come on dude. It looks fun, but it's hardly a stand in.

Couldn't pay me to play those terrible games...
Jinkies  +   686d ago
Couldn't this be worked both ways

"With no other exclusives after Halo and Gears will Xbox fans turn to the PS3"

Just saying....you don't have to pick a side.
smashcrashbash  +   686d ago
Exactly. I personally dislike Halo games immensely. They are the most overblown shooters I have ever played in my life. I couldn't even get through the the first two in the series.I am am quite satisfied with getting PASBR and Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and waiting for Beyond, Sly 4, GOW Ascension, Puppeteer,Rain and Last of Us. I don't need to cater to Microsoft's way of tossing you an exclusive bone every now and again.Patience and my games will come to me.I don't need Halo as a life preserver until then.
Man-E-Faces  +   686d ago
I as well feel the same way about Halo smashcrashbash, but let's not forget the excuse that 360 fanboys have been using as of late "The Multiplats" Assassin's Creed 3, Black Ops, and a very big 1 for PS3 only owners Mass Effect 1. Two of those multiplats alone will be the most gifted, bought during the holidays anyways regardless of another Halo being released. Maybe a better question would be "What are the other xbox 360 owners who don't like/buy Halo going to turn to?" What's that you say the multiplats.
Convas  +   686d ago
Oh boy. Trying to take advantage of that Halo 4 traffic I see ...

Thankfully, I've got both so it's all par for the course. Next exclusive up, Ni No Kuni!

halo 4 is the only game am getting for the 360 this year the rest, mass effect 3, borderland 2, AC3 < all on pc since i bought i gtx 670, no ps3 games for me this year looking forward to the last of us later on though!
yesmynameissumo  +   686d ago
My 360 is busted, so my PS3 is (and has been) my primary console. Halo 4 looks very good, but not good enough to buy a console, a Live subscription, the game and a charge and play kit. Sorry.
Omegabalmung  +   686d ago
Never really got into the Halo series so its a no for me.
Vickistheman  +   686d ago
Black Ops 2 also coming out for ps3, so probably not.
NastyLeftHook0  +   686d ago
if i wanted halo i would have bought a 360
BitbyDeath  +   686d ago
No doubt a few will but in a battle of people crossing over to either Halo or Wii U i'm thinking the Wii U will win out.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   686d ago
Analyzing the title he means single console owners. Ok, I get that much. But, What Sony fans? Maybe this website or other websites a grouped community somewhere or what, where?

There's no evidence, or any way to prove if SFB's will buy an Xbox to play Halo. Now multi console owners I can say yes, even if they play there PlayStation more than anything yeah I can see those people firing up the Xbox. But a full on switch is not, whats the word, "none existent" to tell. Especially late this gen.

Other than that, there's no way to tell if Sony fans will "switch sides." It's something you can't analyze. Therefor I don't have an answer.

No....PS3 users still get Call of Duty. No matter how hard MS tries to make that game seem exclusive, it isn't. People will just play COD till The Last of Us releases next year, or PS All-Stars....

Kinda lame not having a new Resistance or Killzone, but that doesn't mean everyone suddenly becomes a Halo fan.
TheFurryPanda  +   685d ago
this is about as true as it's gunna get.
CommonSense  +   686d ago
Just because there's a very outspoken minority that loves to say silly things that don't apply to the majority, doesn't change the reality of the situation.

Chances are a lot of people will be getting 360s this holiday season and Halo 4 will play a large role in that.

You can say LBP kart and Smash Brothers all you want, but that doesn't mean very much. These aren't games that will appeal to a lot of people on ps3. i'd be surprised if either breaks a million in sales. there are a ton of consumers out there who will either want a game with long legs like halo, or will buy into its hype (justified or not). either way, they are going to buy. it's going to be another huge holiday for MS...no doubt about it.

it's strange. so many of you on n4g take it personally any time someone suggests that MS might have a good exclusive or that people who only own a ps3 might wanna expand their gaming experience. it's incredibly childish.

EDIT: This goes beyond Halo, btw. You people act like there's nothing else to experience on a 360. Halo 4 is just extra motivation. And since you can get a custom 320 gig 360 with 2 controllers, halo 4 plus the DLC, and a headset for 350, it seems pretty likely a ton of ppl will jump on board. Hell, i almost wanna sell my slim just to get this thing.

^^^^YACK!!! LIST OF RANDOM EXCLUSIVES WARNING!!!

Anyways,while Halo 4 looks to be one for the ages, it's not always about exclusives. If you only have a ps3 than you have many amazing multiplats to choose from.

If your a fan of shooters than Black Ops 2 is just around the corner and you can love it or hate it...but it will be the number 1 game for the ps3 this year.

I don't know about you guys, but PS All Stars is pretty fricken huge for me!

All of Sony's major first party title stars crammed into a fighting game that actually plays really well and looks really good? Why is this NOT considered huge?! Fanboys and their ignorance. Disappointing.
Omnislash  +   686d ago
No Im not gonna jump ship.

Why would I spend over 300 dollars on a 360, Halo 4 and XBL Gold?

Just for one game that could very well just be another rehash?
sdplisken  +   686d ago
id say its been a good year:
twisted metal
starhawk
journey
okami hd
ps allstars battle royale
lbp karting

GOW: Ascension

The Last Guardian (hopefully)
Dust 514

Another stupid fanboy article or a bored journalist trying to drive up hits to their web site.

If I was a PS only owner with a 100 or so games, the last thing I would think of is buying a 360 because of one new game. Especially knowing there is only one year left in this console cycle.

Hahaha no

Halo is exactly like CoD Copy+paste garbage we played in 2001.
If you want to play a FPS you have to play Battlefield 3 on PC.This is the only option for real gamers.

Personally, no i wouldn't at all. I just don't like Halo games. If you do, great, but for me i just find them very average.

The article is a bit hypocritical though. What about all the exclusives that PS3 have been having all year? Would you expect 360 owners to switch.
