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...

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

hellzsupernova1182d ago

interesting choices there. I thought the bigger names would be on the list for xbox gamers.
like
inFamous
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.

csreynolds1180d ago

Bravo. You single-handedly ruined the moment...

*shakes head*

KentBlake1183d ago

The difference is that Xbox exclusives sometimes stop being exclusives (Dead Rising, Mass Effect, etc.), while Sony's don't.

-GametimeUK-1183d ago

Devil May Cry, Tekken, Metal Gear, Joe Danger, Final Fantasy... you were saying?

barb_wire1183d 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-1183d ago (Edited 1183d 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.

@GametimeUK

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.

nix1182d 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 why1182d ago (Edited 1182d 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.

Already got two, thanks, but not everyone has that luxury.

TXIDarkAvenger1183d 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.

DigitalRaptor1182d ago (Edited 1182d 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.

smashman981183d ago

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

Kratoscar20081183d 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.

DigitalRaptor1182d ago (Edited 1182d 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.

smashman981182d 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.

cooperdnizzle1182d 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.
