PS3 Exclusives We Never Got To See

The successor to Sony’s PlayStation 3 has been announced, and with it marks the end of the 3rd PlayStation generation, and likely the end of a few titles announced to be in development exclusively for the PS3.

With the PS4 due out this holiday season, Default Prime editor Mike Patuleia decided to take a look back at a few of the announced exclusives that never were and tries to predict their fates for the next generation. Number 1 with a bullet in his mind... (Agent, Eight Days, Final Fantasy XV, Next-Gen, Ni-Oh, PS3, Sony, The Last Guardian, Yakuza 5)

Agent, Versus 13 and The Last Guardian all have potential to be on PS4 and I hope they all are.

As for Yakuza 5... I am pretty sure it will get a release on the PS3 (alongside Tales of Xillia 2) with a next gen Yakuza being made for PS4 sometime.

Couldn't agree more. I do have severe doubts on Versus XIII. I was going to mention Persona 5 as well, but it was never formally announced.

versus XIII in my mind is cancelled.

see, coz now its going to be a duke nukem forever scenario.

if they release it, its going to be rushed and incomplete and an epic flop to the FF loyalists. even gamers in general.

if they release it on PS4, many many many fans are going to be upset. coz it was promised for ps3, so why are the ps3 owners not getting it. and the graphics are going to be ps3 quality on ps4 unless they rebuild the game from scratch. ps4 owners will look at it compared to other ps4 games and say "these graphics are ass!!"

either way, versus XIII isn't going to go down well anymore.

What I would like to see is a ps3 to ps4 cross buy program.

Granted, not all games will be made for ps3 and ps4. I have no question the very newest/best games will be made exclusive to ps4/720 with full developer focus on newest engines, etc.

But during the transition many games will be made for both ps3 and ps4. Watch dogs, call of duty, destiny, etc. The largest games made by big publishers will be made for both generations of system due to low install base of the new ones.

So why not put both ps3/4 games on one disc? This minimizes the impact of no backward compatibility for purchasers of at least newest ps3 games and prevents games from getting lost in the generational shift by combining the install base for ps3/4 game sales.

As a consumer it would be great because we could still get ps3 games without feeling like were wasting money on last gen stuff that isn't playable on our new systems we want. And until you get your ps4 we could be building up a library of games which you could experience in ps4 mode once you upgraded. This adds a special incentive for us to buy a ps4 and also to still keep buying ps3 games until we do.

So what do you think of this?

It would be nice. With the vast difference in PS3/PS4 technology/architecture, they couldn't do it on same disk, I don't think, but maybe if you bought PS4 version you get PS3/PS Vita versions via vouchers similar to their current cross-buy promotions.

Maybe agent was too ambitious for the ps3

It certainly seems that way. I definitely didn't expect such a lack of action on Rockstar's part.

I remember Wardevil (not exclusive, but would have been cool if it had been released) looked great, but was cancelled.
SuburbanHell  +   1003d ago
Yeah a few non-exclusives I really wanted to see at the time were Faith & a .45 and 2 Days To Vegas. I believe Faith was cancelled, but 2 Days To Vegas is still in development hell.

Need a reboot for SOCOM.. Called SOCOM: NAVY SEALS.. If your not going to make it SOCOM and try and get the COD players to join, just don't make it.

Unfortunately Zipper interactive are no more so the chances of ever seeing a true to form Socom again are bust.

Sad but true.

I think it's still a bit early to put Yakuza 5 on the list. I'm sure we will hear something in March or April
