Top Ten Xbox 360 Exclusives

SuperPhillip Central writes, "If you've been with and have followed SuperPhillip Central for an extended period of time, you know how we have a love and hate relationship with the Xbox 360. We love all of the third-party support and Xbox Live (though we'd rather have it for free without ads), but we hate how poor Microsoft's first-party output generally is, how bad Kinect is for anything other than sports or mini-games, and we loathe how awful Red Ring of Death (we're still haunted at night by those flashing lights) was. Regardless, coming up with a list of ten worthwhile exclusives that the Xbox 360 currently possesses wasn't as difficult as we thought it would be.

Don't get us wrong. We've enjoyed our time with Microsoft's second gaming home console. This list of ten exclusives for the system is but one reason why we find ourselves still slightly enamored with the Xbox 360." (Dead Rising, Forza Horizon, Gears of War 3, Halo 4, Tales of Vesperia, Xbox 360)

This article is correct and incorrect in some ways.

Tales of Vesperia while exclusive to the Xbox 360 in Europe/US, the game was released on the PS3 as well (Japan only).
Ninja Gaiden 2 got a PS3 release also, in the form of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 (updated version).

Other than that it's spot on...

We mentioned Tales of Vesperia is only exclusive in the West to the 360 in the description of that game.

As for Ninja Gaiden II vanilla version, that is still exclusive to the 360.

Thanks for the comment!

@jimbobwahey Nice mention of Chromehounds. That game was an absolute blast. I would really like a sequel.
admiralvic  +   877d ago
A lesser version of Dead Rising was ported to the Wii, so it really isn't an exclusive either.

Also the Japanese version of ToV had additional content and stuff not featured in the Xbox version of the game, so it was also an updated version (like NG 2).

Dead Rising on Wii was a completely different game.
Oh_Yeah  +   877d ago
Crackdown is on steam...it's not exclusive. Too Human should be on here imo.

Just by looking at this list. you realize how much superior PS3 exclusive list, it's not even funny anymore for the 360!
Phil32  +   877d ago
This might not be a popular opinion, but I personally find the Wii's exclusives more appealing and superior to what the 360 has to offer as well.
HammadTheBeast  +   877d ago
Well, if it keeps them happy, it keeps them happy.

Personally, PS3 gives me a massive variety. Literally every genre.
richierich  +   877d ago
I didnt even know that the 360 had 10 exclusives
torchic  +   877d ago
beat me to it dang.
KillrateOmega  +   877d ago
Lol. As soon as I read the title, I knew that someone was going to say something to this effect :)

I thought about saying it myself, but I knew that I'd be too late.

I'd take horizon off that list! It was horrid for us Sforza fans
TheFallenAngel  +   877d ago
Dead Rising was awesome. I remember playing it nonstop when it first came out. Plus the music with the psychos was awesome. That is my number one xbox exclusive. Halo Reach was the best Halo in my opinion but it should not be number 1. Forza is awesome. Gears was good. Crackdown meh. Saints Row meh. Banjo meh.

Fable II was super awesome, Fable III still good.

Alan Wake was outstanding and probably one of the best games this gen.

Kameo is sooo underrated as well.

Forza Horizon instead of Forza Motorsports seems just strange, but at the end it comes down to personal taste.
Hicken  +   877d ago
No Lost Odyssey? It's arguably one of the best JRPGs this gen.

Vesperia- as noted by others- is not a platform exclusive, though it IS exclusive regionally.

Ninja Gaiden hardly counts as an exclusive, since it IS on another platform; the 360 version being "vanilla" isn't really something to brag about.

Good to see Crackdown get some love though. Super fun game.
corrupted_sharingan  +   877d ago
Does it have 10 exclusives???
from the beach  +   877d ago
Are you folks not able to count or something?
LogicStomper  +   877d ago
Jek_Porkins  +   877d ago
That is a pretty good list, I would have added Viva Pinata and Alan Wake though.

10.Viva Pinata
9.Kameo Elements Of Power
8.Saints Row
6.Forza Horizon
5.Lost Odyssey
4.Gears Of War 3
3.Alan Wake
2.Fable 2
1.Halo 4

So many great and underrated games to choose from, Ninety Nine Nights, Project Gotham Racing, Kingdom Under Fire, Condemned, Prey, Splinter Cell Conviction, Dead Rising, Blue Dragon, The Last Remnant, Quake 4, Perfect Dark Zero, Dead Or Alive 4 (Still the best), Left 4 Dead 1 and 2.

Such a great console this generation.
jagstatboy  +   876d ago
Viva Pinata is not exclusive. It's on the PC too.
Jek_Porkins  +   876d ago
It's a console exclusive, owned by Microsoft and developed by Rare. Microsoft doesn't look at PC as a game console or competition, which is why they choose to publish some of their games for PC's.

Point is, you cant play any of the games I listed on another home video game console. Considering you need Windows to play these games anyway, I think the point is moot.
trouble_bubble  +   876d ago
Pretty sure PC players and the folks at Steam would disagree there, jek. Not competition because of a windows os? Sony has a sony pictures presence on the 360 via the apps, doesn't mean sony doesn't view them as competition anymore.SOE makes exclusive pc games too.

The xbox ign, gamespot, gametrailers apps on the 360 are loaded with ps3 and wii-u previews and reviews as well. They're still competing platforms. If the pc wasn't competition, they'd have all the halos and not just one or two from years ago. Same with cod map pack timed exclusivity.

The pricing and content discrepencies between valve content on PC vs 360 like L4D, team fortress and portal 2's pc-ps3 crossplay tells me PC is still its own independant platform. The "console exclusive" terminology is definitely an important footnote when claiming multiplats as exclusives. From splinter cell conviction to diablo 3.

*Looks at both lists*
Seems to me someone was mouthing about variety in Xbox's games earlier, but this list shows Sony has little of that. So that has to mean that Sony only relies on those games and has no others.

Yah, it sounds stupid when someone else makes assumptions like that huh?

PS: Great 360 list but no MGS4 on the PS3 list? And whats with all of the Uncharteds on there? I know even the most rabid fanboy could name some better than at least 1 and 3.

Edit: Grammatical error

Personal best 360 games for me:

Gears 1
Gears 2
Gears 3
Halo 3
Halo Reach
Halo ODST (Wasn't as bad as everyone said it was. Especially for 15 bucks)
Halo 4
Wolfenstien 2009 (Yea I know it's not an exclusive, but the PS3 version wasn't that great. The 360 port was pretty good though. Underrated game)
Singularity (Another underrated game. I recommend the 360 version as well.)

Other than that, there's really no other 360 game that makes me go crazy.

Such rabid fanboyism, it's only going to get worse as well.
horndog  +   876d ago
Ps3 has waayyyy more exclusives but the only problem is that NOBODY likes them as much as the few xbox exclusives. Fanboys even love being in xbox exclusive threads more then they like playing their own brand. I mean who the F wants to play as a dirty sock??!! Lol

Viva piñata trouble in paradise, that has taken weeks from me and my moms life. Love that game long time.
