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  +   771d ago
Dafuq? Infamous is easily top 5 Sony material. I enjoyed it way more than Killzone or Gran Turismo.
Ezz2013  +   771d ago
WHAT ?! infamous games are one of the best this gen

and also 10 sony's franchises is not fair since they have alot more of amazing franchises

I would take infamous over wipeout any day
VonBraunschweigg  +   771d 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

Freaking A right. Infamous is hands down one of the best Sony franchises around.
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   771d 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  +   771d ago
If this were my list, Yakuza and Infamous would without question be at the top of the list.
MattS  +   771d ago
Yakuza isn't Sony. It's Sega.

I agree with you though. I love that series.
LOGICWINS  +   771d 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  +   770d 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  +   771d ago
what? you kidding me wipe out is way better than fzero ..
imXify  +   770d ago
Wipeout 2048 PWNS !
dafegamer  +   771d 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  +   771d ago
I would add Resistance as well.

dafegamer  +   771d ago
yup amazing series. I really hope we get a ps4 installment
kB0  +   771d 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  +   771d ago
Should have made it a list of 15 or 20.
Would also like to see Motorstorm on the list.
Ezz2013  +   771d 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  +   771d ago
No Socom?
StockpileTom  +   771d ago
I'm getting a bit depressed at SOCOM always being ignored.
hardcorehippiez  +   771d 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  +   771d 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  +   771d ago
Replace Hot Shot, with Ico twoligy.
Sitdown  +   771d ago
Definitely not
Hicken  +   771d ago
Definitely so.
Sitdown  +   771d ago
Heavenly Sword? Infamous? Resistance?
drsnoopyseussdog  +   771d 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  +   771d ago
Dark Cloud! Now where is my sequel, damnit Sony.
level 360  +   771d ago
Heavy Rain.
DivineAssault  +   771d 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  +   770d ago
Only ten!?
mayberry  +   770d 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  +   770d 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  +   770d 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  +   770d 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  +   770d ago
Heavenly Sword, Infamous, Resistance are all epic games that deserve a place here
