The best PlayStation exclusives of 2013 ā€“ 9 games that make it a great year for PS3

PS4 might be rumbling vaguely off in the distance but this is a great year for PS3. From hardcore JRPGs to mainstream blockbusters ā€“ here are the best PS3 and PSVita exclusives heading your way in 2013. (PS3, Puppeteer, Tales of Xillia, The Last Guardian, The Last Of Us, Until Dawn)

WOW! Nine PS3 exclusives announced so far this year. That's why Sony has the hardcore locked down. Sony cares about the gamers while other gaming companies don't. We've heard all the excuses as to why the competition don't have exclusives like "its too late in the generation", well that's not stopping Sony.

Anyway, I can't wait to play these awesome exclusives.

Yakuza 5 was confirmed for territories outside of Japan?

@ LOGICWINS

Not yet I don't think, but it is highly likely to make its way outside Japan since 3, 4 and Dead Souls did this gen.

One Piece Pirate Warriors 2 is also coming Summer 2013 to Europe so most likely another PSN release for NA.

Puppeteer could be Sony's next huge 2D platformer next to LitteBigPlanet!

Sony should create (or buy) a studio that focuses on RPG's too. That would be epic!

Don't forget Strongman. The force is srong around the "nobody buys these games"-comment too. That's the grand mother of all excuses. I mean they actually think that people who are commenting on gaming forums are not buying games for their console. I've heard of desperation but that claim single handedly puts every other excuse to shame.

Looks like it'll be a solid year for PS3.

Not only that but I got the luck to see the new next gen Guerrilla Game IP and it look stunning! And it seem that it will launch first day with the new PlayStation and I'm not allowed to say the name sorry.

Plus I algo got to see Killzone2 UHD remake and yes folks it was running at 120fps 4k resolution and tgey told me it will be running at 1080p 3D at 60fps. KILLZONE 2 at 4k made look Crysis one on a high end pc like a PS2 game and I eill not explain why, wait and see..

If Last Guardian makes an appearance this year it'll be a great year.
Ezz2013  +   459d ago
it will be awesome year for ps3 owners
with this game or with out

but i really wish to see it this year though
kayoss  +   459d ago
forget about if it even comes out this year. let just say It will be a great year for Sony if the last guardian gets a release date. Thats all im asking for a release date so i know that the game is not cancelled.

It would be great if it made its way out this year, but the release date in the article cracked me up... it had 2011 (mark through), 2012 (mark through), 2013? Regardless, 2013 looks to be an epic year for PS3... some amazing games coming out.

What a fantastic time to own a Playstation; loads of great exclusives, all the best multi-plats, a Naughty Dogs release, Studio Ghibli (Ni No Kuni) and possible next-gen announcements. Exciting stuff.
Riderz1337  +   459d ago
Puppeteer looks fantastic. That Halloween trailer they had made me pre-order the game. The creativity is abundant, something which most games nowadays lack.

Yep.
smashcrashbash  +   459d ago
Why does everyone keep trying to compare LBP to Puppeteer.It isn't LBP.Stop saying that.Stop the pointless comparisons
DigitalRaptor  +   459d ago
You know we're going to hear the old excuse of these games don't sell well, or that they're medicore, but who cares anymore? None of those games look bad. In fact they all look pretty good to excellent.

Puppeteer - Studio Japan. Looks fresh and original, and looks to make its mark. As though Tim Burton ripped apart LittleBigPlanet and pieced it back together in a twisted way. Most surprising is that this is a retail game, not a PSN exclusive.

Until Dawn - Made for PS Move. It has a campy vibe that is expected of teen horror stories, but looks genuinely chilling and scary to play. We need more survival horror and this one looks promising. There's the Heavy Rain mulit-character/choices/story ending inspiration and the fact that it's made to the PS Move's strengths is an exciting prospect.

The Last of Us - don't need to say much about this that hasn't been said before. Naughty Dog, survival horror/action/adventure, great cast of characters, emotive story. Expanded 'wide-linear' gameplay that goes beyond what Uncharted provides. Better than Uncharted? Yes, I think so.

Tearaway - Media Molecule. That is all.

God of War Ascension - Santa Monica haven't really let us down, and a prequel with a less annoyingly vengeful Kratos has been on the cards since GOW3 ended. I'm liking the damage reversal system which adds another dimension to the platforming, a more dynamic combat system and the multiplayer (Beta is awesome). Not my most anticipated of 2013, but definitely a day one purchase.

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time - could Sanzaru make a Sly game that stands as a proud sequel? That's the question that was probably asked before it was given the green light. "Sly 4" looks quirky, fun, varied and embodies the spirit of Sucker Punch's first 3. It's been getting rave previews and I can't see this game being less than stellar. We need an action platformer resurgence. Cross-buy and cross-play for $40. Bring it on.

Beyond: Two Souls - Quantic Dream makes some of the most unique games in the industry. Some people say they are just interactive movies - I beg to differ - but I no longer make that distinction anymore (it's childish and detrimental to the growth of the industry). Every one of their games has a sense of mystery and intrigue to its story and characters. I'm looking forward to the improved writing from David Cage and seeing what their new engine can do. Also: Ellen Page!!

The Last Guardian - it's definitely coming out in the future. Sony have adamantly continued support, even bringing over technical from Santa Monica studio to help. 2013 though? It's possible. E3 should tell.

Then there's unmentioned PS3 & Vita games such as Ni no Kuni, The Witch and the Hundred Cavalrymen, Yakuza 5, Rain, DUST 514, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2, Dokuro, Killzone: Mercenary, Guacamelee, Soul Sacrifice, Warrior's Lair, Dragon's Crown and Phantasy Star Online 2.
