Why Only One Xbox 360 Exclusive vs Five PS3 Exclusive in 2013?

Microsoft might be of the opinion that an exclusivity deal with Activision and Rockstar Games for timed exclusive DLC content for next CoD and GTA V is enough to carry on the weight of Xbox 360 throughout 2013 and will make-up for lack of exclusive games for their home console.

This make shift arrangement looks perfect but only on papers and in imagination, no doubt gamers play CoD like anything, and keep Xbox Live active in high demand, however depending solely on third party games to keep Xbox 360 going in 2013 isn't a smart move.

A warning bell has already started for Microsoft as according to report (January 10, 2013) from International Data Corporation (IDC), lifetime sales figure of PS3 has surpassed Xbox 360. (Gears of War Judgment, Microsoft, PS3, Xbox 360)

Sounds like an excuse to me.

However, people shouldn't count out the numerous XBLA games available each year. Yeah, yeah, they're not big-box, AAA, $60 "exclusive" retail releases, but a lot of downloadable games (whether on PC, PS3, or 360) have more gameplay value than most of the $60 retail releases these days.
JoySticksFTW  +   1130d ago | Well said
Some people are going to say MS is saving exclusives for the next console, but that's not it.

MS has found this generation that they can do more with less. Between timed exclusives / dlc and a few of their exclusives being ultra insane sellers, MS seems to think that they don't need to invest in as many first / second party studios as their competition do to keep their core gamers happy.

We've even seen journalists repeatedly state that Sony should cut back their exclusives and focus on advertising (for less investment and larger gains), than put up significantly more money to develop numerous exclusive titles that don't sell like Halo.

While some may argue this makes sound business sense, it sounds vile to me and goes against every fiber of my gamer being.

Only in this crazy new age of gaming is more quality exclusives considered a bad thing.

And I'm not bashing the 360 console, which I own. But any 360 owner has to admit that the quantity and quality of exclusive titles for the core gamer now (and for the next console) compared to the first half of this generation is worrisome with MS' continued push towards Kinect and timed exclusives / dlc vs actual exclusives.

I got my 360 for Dead Rising, Crackdown, GeOW, Mass Effect, and the Mistwalker games. DR and ME went multi-plat, CD 2 sucked, what the heck happened to MW, and only GeOW maintained it's quality. I feel the earlier titles in those series were the best ones.
NeverEnding1989  +   1129d ago
I'm looking more at the 13 untitled, currently in development games from Microsoft's first party studios.

Are these games coming in 2013? Are they hardcore or Kinect? Are they for the 720? We don't know.

Either way 2013 is looking to be a great year for Xbox 360 owners.

If you are talking about multiplats then yes. Exclusives? Hardly.


"PS3 fanboys were saying this at the end of 2011 yet in 2012 Sony had weaker offerings"

Difference is, compared to Xbox 360's 2013. PS3 had more than ONE exclusive for 2012.

darthv72  +   1129d ago
the irony
here is that there are plenty of "exclusive" games for each platform that are coming out. How they are received is another issue. Quality and appeal are the deciding factors of a game getting purchased or just sitting there.

We know that not ALL games appeal the same and as such the quality of those games is criticized differently. Some have a simplistic nature that may not appeal to a certain type of gamer but that does not change the fact that if the game is exclusive it should be omitted from a list of exclusive games to be released.

Lets be fair about this.
aquamala  +   1129d ago
the fanboys always only want to talk about the exclusives, but look at the games in 2012, Far Cry 3, Borderlands 2, Dishonored, AC3, etc etc. there's enough quality multi plat games to keep most console owners busy. 5 exclusives in 2013 really aren't that many compared to the number of multi plat games people want to play.

kupomogli  +   1129d ago

Sorry, but "almost" every good XBLA title comes out on either PC and sometimes PS3 as well. Even if it doesn't come out on PS3, the fact that it's on PC means it's not exclusive.

There are also "some" downloadable games that have better value than "some" retail releases. However, you get what you pay for and a lot of these digital games are just pure ass. That's why some of these games don't make their way to Steam because they're submitted and they're declined by Steam as something that doesn't seem like it would sell, meaning they probably thought it wasn't any good. Microsoft will let anything on their XBLA as long as you pay the fees.
EVILDEAD360  +   1129d ago
Microsoft has nothing to prove at the end this gen.
Going into year 8 the 360 is the oldest console this gen and is still finishing extremely strong headed into E3.

Microsoft just released its most expensive title Xbox history in less than 2 months ago alongside a few other exclusives this holiday and it paid off huge.

Halo 4 is the fastest selling Halo ever and like every other Halo will chart in 2013. the 360 itself had another dominating Dec NPD and quarter.

At this point, We see what happens every year with articles like these. They pretend that MS somehow has to compete against Sony game speculation.

When we saw what happened last year, when there were sites declaring all Last of Us and games like Last Guardian were coming in 2012.

So at the end of the day, you basically have The God of War prequel vs. the Gears of War prequel in March.

And although Naughty is blesses us with 'Last' in May, MS isn't stupid enough to release an exclusive at the same time becuase Grand Theft Auto 5 will be dropping in May as well. (see Alan Wake vs. Red Dead for reference)

The rest of the supposed games are all coming after E3 and we all know this is an huge E3 for MS if it's going to be launching the 720.

The rest of the first half of 2013 is dominated by huge high profile multis many of which MS has been pushing hard like Tomb Raided, Metal Gear, and Bioshock: Infinite.

Again at the end of the console gen there is nothing to prove and I guarantee Sony will be just as careful next year when they are in the same position MS is in.

That may be true, but perhaps multi-platform games get more votes because they are played by more people on more platforms. If someone games exclusively on one or two platforms they aren't going to vote on an platform exclusive on a platform they don't use.

So really the votes don't tell the whole story.

"Why Only One Xbox 360 Exclusive vs Five PS3 Exclusive in 2013?"

This console generation is ending, and next gen is arriving... most likely in 2013.

As for exclusives, i prefer quality then quantity. If you take a look at PS3 exclusives in 2012, they were all average or below average. I personally didn't purchase any PS3 exclusive in 2012.... but i have to admit this year it looks much better for the PS3. Probably purchase 3 or 4 PS3 exclusives this year.

Starhawk was really good actually but certainly Twisted Metal, PSASBR and LBP Karting were all only average to decent

my hope is they are saving for next gen but my concern is they think they can be successful with same 3-4 games with timed exclusive dlc.

since launch of kinect MS have kind of given up on core market, which i believe will bite them in their behind come next gen.

And as far as Jtag's jab toward sales, God of War alone can go toe toe with Gears.

nukeitall  +   1130d ago
If you narrow it down to a certain convenient games, but what about last year?

Many of these games were probably pushed out to this year due to being delayed. As far as I can remember, there was only one AAA exclusive game on PS3 last holiday. That fighting game that bombed.

Does it matter anyhow? I have so much games on the backlog, exclusives and multi-platform and I can't find time to play them. There is a huge library on all platforms, except Wii U due to being new. If you can't find games to play, you either have too much time on your hand or have a very narrow taste for games.
ILive  +   1129d ago
It actually does matter because of competition. Competition is suppose to bring quality and variety. Only Sony seems to understand this. I cannot blame Microsoft because it apparently doesn't matter and Mulitplats have done far better than exclusives this Gen when they are obviously sold across different platforms. I love use to love the Xbox, and I still like it. But I have to say that purchasing a Ps3 was one of the best thing I have ever done for myself this Gen. If only the 360 was more like the original Xbox. Men did I love that console. It had an amazing variety of games. It was just late to the party.

Sony is already making names for these exclusives come next Gen. They don't have to stress about new ips like microsoft. They just have come out with couple more to add to the list.

In that same space, two Fable games bombed as did an Alan Wake digital sequel. Flagship Forza barely sold a million and Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings only did half that. Akai Katana sold like 20,000. Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor estimated around 60,000 with a metacritic avg of 38/100.

Why are you lying? You said it was fishy because it is SHIPPED numbers NOT because it wasn't official.

These are YOUR EXACT WORDS: - "Those are only shipped numbers people. I thought it seemed a little fishy because of there is no exact number sold." -

I'm the one that said it's "best to wait for official Sony and MS numbers" so I don't know how I appear to be bothered, but PMing me with a "haha sucker I was right" message seems like gloating and trying to rub it in to me.

Also, When it comes to games, most of the games I've played over the years of this generation that have become my personal favorites were multiplat releases. The only games in my favorites that are exclusives are the Forza Motorsport series, the Uncharted series, and MGS4. Could care less about Halo, Gears, Alan Wake, God of War, Dark Souls, Killzone, etc.
Tontus  +   1129d ago
Most of my favourite games this gen have also been multiplatform. The only exclusives I care for are God of War, Gears of War 1 & 2, LittleBigPlanet and Alan Wake. I couldn't care less for the mediocre Uncharted 'games', MGS4 is awful (never played a previous game in that series and never will), don't care for Halo (might try Halo 4 though) and I don't care for racing simulators so no interest in GT or Forza.

I own all current generation consoles and my favourite games have 95% been multiplatorm.
Dlacy13g  +   1129d ago
Clearly something is afoot at MS. I know they typically are quiet about their 2nd half until E3 BUT usually we also typically know of one or two of those titles. This year we know of nothing...not even 3rd party games seem to be showing their hand. You can even say the same thing for Sony in that 2nd half is murky.

Its going to be an interesting and fun E3 for sure.

One point of contention with the article. Author states the IDC report says Sony surpassed in life time sales when in fact IDC is reporting it believes Sony surpassed MS in lifetime shipped units. It's splitting hairs in some respects but "shipped units" is the accurate reporting.

If you only own a xbox 360 you're missing out on a lot of great games. Don't be a half ass gamer. Get a PS3.

I agree and vice versa.

Whatever happened to Ryse and Fable Kinect? Seems Microsoft gets so caught up with next gen that they forget a lot of gamers are waiting for exclusive games. I'll tell you one thing. I only have a 360, but if MS don't bring exclusives, Imma buy a PS3 and dive right in to games like Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank, Sly Cooper, GOW, Motorstorm, Killzone, LBP, Infamous, Ico and Shadow of Colossus, Resistance, Metal Gear Solid, and so much more that's coming.

Not sure why so many people forget about Puppeteer when talking about 2013 exclusives. It looks like it's going to be a fantastic game.

Actually, I don't think that people forgot about it entirely, but more as of, don't really know it since it's never been truly advertised well enough.
