Sony's ten finest exclusive franchises

Digitally Downloaded wrote: "While Nintendo's first party studios are held to an almost impossible standard, Sony does not get enough credit for its own first party studios. They're quite awesome, too. Sony's stable of exclusives have significantly improved over the past generation, offering content that you cannot find anywhere else but PlayStation. This top ten list features what I consider to be the ten best Sony franchises. From Kratos to Nathan Drake, Jak and Daxter to Ratchet & Clank, and Wipeout to Gran Turismo, PlayStation fans have been spoiled rotten by these franchises." (Gran Turismo 5, Hot Shots Golf 5, Jak & Daxter 4, Killzone 3, PS Vita, PS3, Ratchet & Clank 3: Up Your Arsenal, Sly Cooper 4, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Wipeout HD)

Something that isnt on the list Infamous its such a great franchise.
Conzul  +   867d ago
Dafuq? Infamous is easily top 5 Sony material. I enjoyed it way more than Killzone or Gran Turismo.
Ezz2013  +   867d ago
WHAT ?! infamous games are one of the best this gen

I would take infamous over wipeout any day
VonBraunschweigg  +   867d ago
inFamous should have made the list, but if it isn't too much trouble, can you please edit your comment to let's say, Hotshots Golf or something? I mean not WipEout man, not my beloved WipEout HD Fury online Eliminator. With the 2097 hud & soundtrack. With the female announcer. Contender...eliminated:)

Thanx
HonestDragon  +   859d ago
Freaking A right. Infamous is hands down one of the best Sony franchises around.
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   867d ago
where the heck is infamous,it deserves a spot on that list,though it is a top 10,id probably swipe infamous in for hot shots golf,only because hot shots isnt my type of game.
LOGICWINS  +   867d ago
If this were my list, Yakuza and Infamous would without question be at the top of the list.
MattS  +   867d ago
Yakuza isn't Sony. It's Sega.

I agree with you though. I love that series.
LOGICWINS  +   867d ago
To my knowledge, there has never been a Yakuza game created for a non- Sony platform. So its a Sony platform exclusive. But I see what your saying. You mean games published by Sony.
Tito08  +   866d ago
Dude you and your delusional logics, Yakuza isn't a Sony IP, and isn't published by Sony, the only reason you don't see the Yakuza games on any other platform is because when they first worked on the first game, it was supposed to be a multiplat, but of the 3 console makers, only Sony gave them the green light as opposed to Nintendo & Microsoft. It is a 3rd party game regardless of exclusivity, the article is about 1st party games, if Sony ever bought the riggts for the IP, then yeah it should be on the list!

It is very evident you want to add something that has nothing to do with the subject to get other people angry, keep your "Logics" somewhere!

It technically does count as an exclusive since you know its exclusive.
nosferatuzodd  +   867d ago
what? you kidding me wipe out is way better than fzero ..
imXify  +   866d ago
Wipeout 2048 PWNS !
dafegamer  +   867d ago
Where the heck is Infamous? Also add the recently Gravity rush to the list too. It should belong to sonys exclusive powerhouses
I_am_Batman  +   867d ago
I would add Resistance as well.

dafegamer  +   867d ago
yup amazing series. I really hope we get a ps4 installment
kB0  +   867d ago
Yakuza I undertand since it's cult classic more than a huge selling point..but no Infamous?

Also people need to re-read the article. Top 10 EXCLUSIVE FRANCHISES, not companies.

SO Yakuza is a franchise, that is exclusive to PS3, much like Resistance is a Franchise Exclusive to PS3 even though Insomniac (which is now multi) created it.

That is my interpretation.

Anyways, mine would've been slightly different:P
BitbyDeath  +   867d ago
Should have made it a list of 15 or 20.
Would also like to see Motorstorm on the list.
Ezz2013  +   867d ago
hey did you played GOWA yet ?!

EDIT: good, you will love it very much

I've got the game but haven't had time to play it yet. Hopefully later this weekend i will.
josephayal  +   867d ago
No Socom?
StockpileTom  +   867d ago
I'm getting a bit depressed at SOCOM always being ignored.
hardcorehippiez  +   867d ago
i agree. Sony need to bring socom back to its former glory. Zipper messed up and caved to the casuals . the best socom this gen was confrontation and it was built on a ps2 engine so all the old exploits were there and it became rife with cheaters and slant six bid bugger all to fix it. give it realistic graphics and bring back the old controls ( maybe tightened up a bit ) and releases on ps4. let guerilla games take the helm and get slant six involved and it would be a winner. i want me some socom godammit
StrongMan  +   867d ago
Great list but I would have added Infamous and Heavy Rain. Always hard to narrow a top PS3 exclusive list to only ten because there are so many great PS3 exclusives.
TheOneEyedHound  +   867d ago
Replace Hot Shot, with Ico twoligy.
Sitdown  +   867d ago
Definitely not
Hicken  +   867d ago
Definitely so.
Sitdown  +   867d ago
Heavenly Sword? Infamous? Resistance?
drsnoopyseussdog  +   867d ago
I agree with a lot of you. Infamous was one of my favorite games this gen and should have taken over Hot Shots Golf's spot easily.
itBourne  +   867d ago
Dark Cloud! Now where is my sequel, damnit Sony.
level 360  +   867d ago
Heavy Rain.
DivineAssault  +   867d ago
team ico games should be in there as well as demons souls (not dark) & hopefully soul sacrifice makes it in there one day.. But im guessing they mean games with sequels so nvm

Where is Demon's Souls?? and Shadow of the colossus?
Denethor_II  +   866d ago
Only ten!?
mayberry  +   866d ago
Just reading the comments after reading the title, and am truly astonished that there is no Infamous, Resistance, Motorstorm... what exactly is on this list!
Y_5150  +   866d ago
It's a good list, really all those games (IDK about Hot shots Golf) are well known series and shows the variety and different ways to play exclusive content on the Playstation brand. But many of us wanted to add other series on the list like inFAMOUS, Resistance, Parrapa theRapper, ect. List like this can have 20 and still be not enough.
Picnic  +   866d ago
It says 'its own first party studios' in the content of the original extract. So don't bother mentioning Yakuza.
But , if you do, think of Papo and Yo and The Unfinished Swan as well.
nintendoland  +   866d ago
I didn't know what infamous was until just seconds ago. It looks like a generic red faction game. Maybe that's why it isn't on the list?
jakmckratos  +   866d ago
Heavenly Sword, Infamous, Resistance are all epic games that deserve a place here
