Five PS3 Exclusives We Wish Weren't PS3 Exclusives

With the announcement this week that Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection isn’t coming to the Xbox 360, we started thinking about titles that we wished had made the jump to Microsoft’s platform. We came up with a list as long as your arm, that spanned several consoles but in the end, the Xbox 360’s natural closest competitor seemed to be the obvious one to focus on.

So in this week’s Friday Five, we’re covering the five PS3 exclusive titles that we wish weren’t PS3 exclusive titles... (PS3, Xbox 360)

Limited by space unfortunately - we could only choose five. I narrowed it down from 11. :)

interesting choices there. I thought the bigger names would be on the list for xbox gamers.
Resistance 3 was incredible i think xbox gamers would appreciate that game!!!

also i honestly think Uncharted 3 was more epic!!
the plane part and the boats blew my mind

Such a negative approach to the title. Shouldn't it say 5 reasons you should get a ps3

if you really wanted to play these games is not hard to do

It's refreshing to read an article from an Xboxer that appreciates our console's exclusives for once. Well done Ken Barnes. If only everyone was as accepting...

"If only everyone was as accepting..."

I think this about the Sony fanboys on this site every day.
csreynolds  +   938d ago
Bravo. You single-handedly ruined the moment...

*shakes head*
KentBlake  +   942d ago
The difference is that Xbox exclusives sometimes stop being exclusives (Dead Rising, Mass Effect, etc.), while Sony's don't.
-GametimeUK-  +   941d ago
Devil May Cry, Tekken, Metal Gear, Joe Danger, Final Fantasy... you were saying?
barb_wire  +   941d ago
Metal Gear? that was on the MSX2 back in 1987, Final Fantasy started out on the NES in 1990 (in the US) and the SNES in 1991.. also Tekken was released on the GBA in 2001.
-GametimeUK-  +   941d ago
I'm also taking individual games in to consideration, barb_wire. Not many people were saying "Final Fantasy 13 going to 360 doesn't matter... it was a Nintendo franchise back in the day". PS3 fans were furious because they lost an exclusive. 360 had a numbered FF game before that too, but 13 was a killer blow at the time.

Metal Gear Solid games normally get announced as exclusives, but move to other platforms. (Regardless of where the series originated)

And your most stupid comment is Tekken, because that is just blatantly proving me right since Tekken had become available on another platform too.

I don't see Ar Tonelico 1-3, Disgaea, Yakuza 1-5 & three spin-off, Tales of Xillia, Valkyria Chronicles 1-3, MGS 4, Persona 1-4 (not to be confuse with P4 Arena the fighting game), One Piece: Pirate Warrior, Dark Cloud, Wild Arms, etc, are making an appearance in xbox or nintendo console.
nix  +   941d ago
God of war series. Uncharted series. motorstorm series. resistance series. LBP series. gran turismo series. Yakuza series. Infamous series... argh so many other exclusives series are never gonna appear on any other platform.
Why o why  +   941d ago
Gamertime is right. Those games were exclusive. Sony themselves said 3rd party exclusives would die out so they built the infrastructure to develop their own.. you can disagree with gamertime but by doing that you're disagreeing with Sony themselves. Many of those games, as we know them, were only on sonys platform but aren't now.

Add gta to gtimes list

just get a ps3...
KMxRetro  +   942d ago
Already got two, thanks, but not everyone has that luxury.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   941d ago
I don't even think its luxury to own all 3 systems by now. They have got down in price a lot from launch and have sales here and there. If you want to play these games, buy a PS3. Same thing vice-versa.
DigitalRaptor  +   941d ago
The thing is KMxRetro, I understand you've got to produce content for your site. But you've already got 2 PS3s so why bother submitting this article?

Games are exclusive for many reasons and wishing for them is redundant and only causes frustration. Write an article like "5 PS3 exclusives worth getting a PS3 for" cause that is the only solution to longing for these games to perhaps come to Xbox at some point.

Ppl who say that really need to realize how much of a jerk they sound like when they say that. It doesn't come off as sensible it comes off as snobbish
Kratoscar2008  +   941d ago
Yeah here in my country even the lowest priced PS3 is a month and a half of pay worth.

He is an ignorant asshole.
DigitalRaptor  +   941d ago
"Yeah here in my country even the lowest priced PS3 is a month and a half of pay worth."

Then work for a month and a half, save up and get one. It's what people do in the real world. Unless bills and rent are your priorities, for which I could understand, but PS3 isn't the console for rich people who can afford it - I worked for it and saved up for it. Simple as that. Nothing ignorant or snobbish about that. If you want something, you'll work for it.

smashman98  +   941d ago
@digitalraptor I'm not denying the fact that if you want something you should save up and buy it. That should go without saying.

But with that being said its not fair to assume that just because someone enjoys a few games on a system doesn't mean they want one, and that is why its snobbish.
cooperdnizzle  +   941d ago
@ Digital Raptor. I would like to see you save up for one if it took you a month and a half and that was all of your money. He is not talking about extra cash he is talking about all the money he would make in a month and a half. In America you could make 300$ in a day, so yea not much to save up for. In other countries that could take "Months" And that my friend is the real world.
Hellsvacancy  +   942d ago
If I only owned a 360 id want MGS4 and Demon's Souls, there wouldnt be any wanting to be honest, if I had no money id save up and buy a PS3

xPhearR3dx  +   941d ago
I prefer Dark Souls over Demon's Souls, which is already on 360. While MGS 4 was a good game, I liked 3 better. So if I had to choose PS Exclusives, #1 would be easily Heavy Rain. Then probably LittleBigPlanet. I love creative games and when I owned a PS3, the community made some really amazing stuff I'm glad I didn't miss out on.
C-Thunder  +   941d ago
Hindsight is 20/20, but I don't know a single 360 owner that wouldn't be money ahead had they just bought the "more expensive" ps3 instead. When I see articles like this it makes me hope they learned a lesson this gen and at least pick up the next Playstation for all the great exclusives, not to mention the consumer friendly stance Sony takes with its systems.
CGI-Quality  +   941d ago
If you want them that bad, buy the device they're on. If they weren't exclusives, what would be the need for multiple machines? I've never understood that silly thinking that everything should be .........on everything.
DigitalRaptor  +   941d ago
I don't get these silly articles either. These games are exclusive because Sony made them exclusive so wishing they are on your console is a null and void statement to make. Just get the console or shud it.

At least it's not quite as bad as the people who ask why Uncharted or The Last of Us are not on their platform of choice to begin with, as if Naughty Dog haven't been making exclusive games for Sony for the past 10 years. I just want to reply, "because the platform you chose doesn't have people behind it who care about creating those types of games".

MakiSaad2  +   941d ago
I'm a PS fan but stop being a jerk, Douche bag
-GametimeUK-  +   941d ago
Good list. I would have chose...

Uncharted 2
Demon's Souls (360 users got Dark Souls so wooooo!)
Warhawk (on xbox live would be great)
Little Big Planet
God of War 3

I think that is what I would go for. Perhaps switching God of War to Killzone2 would be a good idea because of live. Anyway, 5 games I want from the Xbox on my PS3.

Mark of the Ninja
Gears of War
Splinter Cell Conviction

(Conviction is a weird choice... I just feel the need for all Splinter Cell games to be on PS). Maybe Alan Wake? Until recently I would have said Mass Effect.
WeAreLegion  +   941d ago
Great lists, sir! :) I would add Heavy Rain on the PS3 side and Crackdown on the 360 side.
-GametimeUK-  +   941d ago
Thank you very much. Heavy Rain is a very noteworthy title. Crackdown is underrated. I had a lot of fun with it when it first launched.
aquamala  +   941d ago
all of them would look better on PC.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   941d ago
Bravery level: So fuckin brave.
-GametimeUK-  +   941d ago
Only after the modding community fixes the direct ports because the developers just feed the PC crowd the consoles leftovers since the PC isn't worth it.
Adolph Fitler  +   941d ago
Why no love for Motorstorm????
Tontus  +   941d ago
If I only owned an Xbox 360 I'd want:

1. God of War III (genre defining, universally acclaimed)

2. LittleBigPlanet (genre defining... sod Mario, universally acclaimed)

3. Uncharted 2 (genre defining, universally acclaimed)

4. Heavy Rain (genre defining, very well received)

5. Gran Turismo 5 (genre defining (you're awesome too Forza) and well recieved, probably would be acclaimed at its current state)

(I expect switches later this year, UC2 with TLoU & Heavy Rain with Beyond Two Souls).

Demon Souls, MGS4, Killzone 2, Infamous, Ratchet and Clank are other enticing games.
TheFallenAngel  +   941d ago
My bubbles will be raped but here it is. Forza is better than GT5, I own GT5 and my brother has an xbox.
CGI-Quality  +   941d ago
You should lose bubbles, since your comment is obvious flamebait.
GABRIEL1030  +   941d ago
If I like Halo series then I bought a 360 !
Neo-Axl  +   941d ago
When it comes down to it, I've always wanted to see Gears on the PS3.. would be really cool, Gears is the first "Next Gen" game I ever played this generation, it utterly blew me away.
smashman98  +   941d ago
I agree on that
WeAreLegion  +   941d ago
I love the Gears series, but I think its time has past, sadly. Gears 2 was my favorite in the series. The third game seemed to go back to the pointless firefights of the first game. :/ Judgment wasn't my cup of tea.
ThePsychoGamer  +   941d ago
I'd love to see the awesome Yakuza series go multiplat, so Xbox only gamers could also enjoy some of the best writing in games combined with some of the most satisfying gameplay.

Also the boost in sales could help secure all future titles a place in US markets
yesmynameissumo  +   941d ago
Just buy a PS3. Problem solved.
Sharius  +   941d ago
only 2 game i want from xbox exclusive are: fable and minecraft, fornatully there will be large chance mincraft will come to playstation once the ex deal runout
MidnytRain  +   940d ago
I don't understand this. Most anyone has a computer that can play Minecraft/Fable anyway...
Ulf  +   941d ago
Turning the fanboy war into reality, by having cross-platform MAG, where 360s are forced to be on one side, and PS3s on another, would have made MAG even better than it already was.
WeAreLegion  +   941d ago
Agreed. However, it's simply not something the companies would be willing to do.

I think MAG should release as a Free To Play download on the PSN, including all DLC. Players who have already logged hours into it will get exclusive skins to show that they're veterans. It would boost the game's community into the tens of thousands, at least. That's enough for some amazing 256 battles before the game goes extinct. Even better...upgrade it for the PS4 and release it this way during a slow release week before Christmas or soon after the holidays. ;) You're welcome, Sony.
SKUD  +   941d ago
I'd like too see the killzone series jump to the PC. Have it recieve planetside 2 scale warfare. All hell on helghan would truely break loose. Also allowing proper KB+mose control.
mayberry  +   941d ago
You sir are right on! Killzone is BOSS!
DivineAssault  +   941d ago
i can think of 5-10 more games im sure xboxers wish werent PS exclusives.. But PS has the largest variety of software choices on the market so what can you do? BUY ONE or rent it at a local shop along with the games you wanna play..

Whoever choses to adopt MS nx gen will run into this same issue but it might be even worse.. Im sure theres going to be MAAAAAANY more devs working with sony nx gen than this one.. Indies, AAA Juggernauts, mid levelers, etc.. PS4 is receiving a lot of positive feedback from both publisher/developers & consumers..
Welcome2Die  +   941d ago
4 exclusives I wish werent Xbox 360 exclusive:

1. Halo
2. Forza
3. Gears of War.
4. Fable

Oh wait nevermind, if that happened it would render the Xbox even more redundant!
Hicken  +   941d ago
Maybe Forza, though GT more than adequately fills my need for a racing sim.

Only certain Halo games, like Reach, which I enjoyed quite a bit.

I'd rather have Lost Odyssey than Fable... well, I have Lost Odyssey, but I'd rather have it on PS3 than fable.
grassyknoll  +   941d ago
I don't know about Gears or Forza, but Fable 2 & 3 are a pile of shit.
Welcome2Die  +   941d ago
It was a joke really, I cold care less about those games. If Halo alone made it to PS3 the Xbox would be completely useless...
horndog  +   941d ago
None of the above. I like what ms has to offer
boybato  +   941d ago
Exclusives that defines the PS this gen for me are:
1. LBP
2. Heavy Rain
3. Journey
4. MGS 4
Totoro17  +   941d ago
Wonderful list. Journey and Hard Rain are titles that pop in my mind when I think exclusive and unique gaming experiences only on the PS.

On the other hand, the one game I wish would come out on the PS that's 360/PC exclusives is Left 4 Dead. I have it on both systems and I would love to experience it with my PS friends.
LeonhartX  +   941d ago
But i heard heavy rain is better than hard raid i mean hard rain sucks /s
Totoro17  +   941d ago
lol oops...funny enough, Hard Rain is a map on Left 4 Dead 2...damn you L4D!! All stuck in my head and shiz.
LeonhartX  +   940d ago
Lol it happens :D
Hergula  +   941d ago
Ridiculous list, do Xbox users actually want those games on the list? Go right ahead take em, PS3 still has better exclusives without those 5 games that are in actuality very good but nothing compared to the other exclusives PS3 has.
airshiraz  +   941d ago
i really wanted to play alan wake on pc to see its real graphics and then my wish came true and it happened and i saw the real graphics of alan wake and it was awesomeee with better resolution and anti aliasing and... and i think wish to see these games real graphics on pc too
killzone 2 3 and infamous 2 uncharted 2 3
Harpers_Ferry  +   941d ago
I would have liked to have seen MGS4 on the 360 at some point, just so that those Metal Gear fans who own a 360 and can't afford a second console wouldn't miss out. Regardless of what one thinks of the game, there are a ton of moments in there that are just plain awesome for a fan of the series.

The ICO collection would have been nice, if only to expose more people who are just getting into gaming this generation to one of the greatest games from the last.
josephayal  +   941d ago
wish? meh
I own both consoles and enjoy gaming on both consoles
ZILLA  +   941d ago
REALLY?! bad!!
now the true colors come out to show just how big a failure the xbox is now and future(period)
