Why Buying PS4 Over Xbox One: X360 received 12 Core Exclusive Compare to 56 on PS3 during 2010-2013

A pretty interesting perspective on exclusive games for Xbox 360 and PS3 (for a time period of 2010-2013). During this time period, Xbox 360 has received received just 12 exclusive (core games) whereas PS3 received massive 56 core exclusive games.

Lack of Core Exclusive Games is surely going to be one of the main reason why gamers will move on to PS4 over Xbox One (assuming that above trend continues, especially now bundled Kinect with Xbox One). (PS4, Xbox One)

Forget comparing the amount of exclusives between the PS3 and 360. What this picture shows is the amount of Kinect games over non kinect exclusives. Its over 3x as much

That's another point. And with mandatory Kinect on the X1, we'll see even more of that.

And 6 of those 12 "core" exclusives are Halo, Gears, & Forza.

Here are the metacritic scores of 6 core exclusives other than halo forza gears

Naval Assault 40
MorphX 33
Blackwater 37
Otomedius 48
Crackdown 2 70
N3II 45

Megahits i'm telling ya!

EDIT: HAZE on PS3 is better than half core 360 exclusives since 2010 cause it got a higher score

All I have to say is: ooof.

Company track record is part of why I buy a console. I already knew Sony supported their consoles better than Microsoft but I didn't know it was THIS lopsided. The number of Kinect exclusives compared to core games is terrifying, seeing how Xbox One comes with a Kinect, mandatory.

What is disheartening is Microsoft USED to support their consoles much better, but they totally lost the message. If you compiled this list from 2006-2009, it would be ridiculously lopsided in Microsoft's favor, back when the Xbox brand fought tooth-and-nail to be the go-to place for hardcore gaming.

My brothers,

As you can see, the Xbox brand has become the laughing stock of hardcore gaming. They tried and succeeded at building a fan base, yet succeeded even more at failing to provide them with what they bought an Xbox for to begin with. Xbox 360 focused on hardcore gaming INITIALLY, then died a fast death the moment Sony's 1st parties got heavily involved, as proven by Naughty Dog and Media Molecule taking every GOTY award since 2008.

Microsoft didn't know what to do anymore, so they went down the casual route...made Kinect, and advertised it as the best way to play. Of course the casuals believed this. Now these casuals have no friends for having been caught using it (Kinect). The humiliation is too much to bare with.

Microsoft thinks they're fooling us but everyone knows PlayStation is the only platform for core gamers. You will see that in just two years time, Xbox One will have abandoned you once more. Kinect is all there will be.

Let's as well take a moment to point out Microsoft's paychecks going toward timed deals and 3rd party exclusives. They tried this with Xbox 360 the first 2 years then were left with nothing but Halo every year that came after. Those millions could have been used for something that would help them in the long run. Now it's over before it starts.

This is a major problem with hardcore gamers. Jack Trenton said it best during an interview when he stated that it just wasn't right to make people pay for something that they didn't want. Sony is all about the hardcore gamers. I'm not sure who micro$oft is catering to. Heck I don't think they're sure either.
inveni0  +   718d ago
I don't know how it could, but I'm hoping that the restructuring at Microsoft will add some more exclusive competition to the market. I would love to be enticed to own both consoles next gen, and I want Microsoft to keep Sony on their toes (because I love Sony's first-party devs). If Microsoft doesn't start focusing on new franchises and experiences, then they're going to continue being lost in the dust of the great minds behind games like The Last of Us and even third-party titles like Far Cry 3. Microsoft just needs to get the message that it's time to push core gaming to the next level. If they could embrace that, the next generation could amaze us like none before.

@ Septic

I thought while GT was the better simulator and technical impressive, I felt that Forza was the more fun game at release.

Now GT has just keeps better with updates and continued dev support, but I'm still an arcade kind of racer at heart.

With that said, your GT / Forza metacritic comparison in this case makes no sense. You're comparing two quality titles. It like comparing two perfectly cooked steaks. It's just I prefer teriyaki sauce on mine while you prefer yours char broiled.

Abz was pointing out a list of broken games, that any gamers should shake their head at. And this is coming from someone who's favorite 360 exclusive next to Gears and LO is Ninja Blade (my guilty pleasure).

I'm not saying ps3 doesn't have it's stinkers. But trying to throw out GT's lower meta compared to Forza, and challenging someone to say Forza's a better game seems ill thought out and like you're arguing just for arguments sake.

Bah, edited to keep things cool.

No, what I'm trying to allude to is the double standards on here. Metacritic was much-maligned by the community on here, especially when it came to GT and Forza review scores.

"With that said, your GT / Forza metacritic comparison in this case makes no sense. You're comparing two quality titles."

Why? Forza and GT are both simulators. They are both games of the EXACT SAME GENRE. Anyone arguing against that is in denial. Metacritic states that Forza is better than GT simply by virtue of its higher scores. It's not rocket science at all.

Stating that one is more of an arcade racer is just an erroeneous and desperate way to deflect the comparison, which rests favourably with Forza as far as Metacritic is concerned.
JoySticksFTW  +   718d ago
Dude, you're wrong

You're comparing two quality titles. Only morons will argue UC2, GTAIV, TLoU etc is better than x quality game due to meta.

You sound foolish and are drowning in your own argument. No one's going there with you, brah

And speaking of deflection and denial. Have you played Forza Horizon?

Go play it and tell me that game is as sim focused as Forza 4. It ain't Ridge Racer, but it's more forgiving by far compared to 4.

Like I said, you don't know what you're talking about, you make awful comparisons, and you argue just to do it.

By wasting my time trying to instil some sense in you lol.

Lol what are you on about man, your points were TERRIBLE. You're saying that Forza and GT are not in the same genre and cannot be compared. That in itself is just plain nonsense. All the comparisons made by big name sites, by fans and gamers....and just BASIC logic make it clear that these two are in the same genre.

What more can I do then to make you understand? Your points were incredibly weak.

I actually think you're deliberately trolling me but nevermind.

Yes, that list is weak. But why are there loads of baseball games listed on the PS3 list? Also, with the exception of gems like Uncharted, TLOU and other big name exclusives, the others on the list just don't appeal to me. But then, that is entirely subjective and yes, Sony smashed MS in the exclusive department. More choice can only be a good thing.

But, remember the importance/quality of third party titles. They have been the highlight of this generation and from an early glimpse at E3, it looks like the same can be said for the next-gen. Don't interpret this as deflecting the issue however.

TLD:DR- MS got their backsides handed over to them in the latter half of this gen when it comes to the number of exclusives. No one should be able to deny that.

Just like oblivion and demons souls play differently though still in the same action rpg genre.

You were too busy arguing and trying to "win" (what?) that you didn't want to really listen to any one else's point.

All I said was Forza and GT are both quality titles with different flavors, which you were trying to state one was better because of a higher meta critic score... In a twisted attempt to point out n4g hypocrisy.

Totally ignoring the obvious bad games that were the target of Abz's comment.

You lost your cool, then lost the debate instead of remembering that other people's opinion are as valid as yours.

What you obviously don't notice and what JoysticksFTW was trying to point out is that the Metascore for for both Forza 4 and GT5 are high while the scores that were posted earlier were 40s and 50s.

It's like if you came out and said, PS3 has games like Unearthed Trail of Ibn Buttata(which isn't exclusive, isn't even out yet, but if it was) then I retorted, what has better Metascore? Uncharted 2 or Gears of War?

You didn't notice what he meant so I'm going with it went way over your head.

Gran Turismo 5 has released some pretty major updates. If reviews could be altered based on how the game has changed since launch, I'm pretty sure the Metascore on GT5 would much higher now. That and the fact that GT5 was scored low from most places due to it being overhyped.

The PS3/Vita titles are Sony exclusives. You can't play the games on a 3DS, Wii, 360, or PC, you can only play them on Sony consoles.

360/PC are just that. 360 or PC. Two entirely different consoles. Most people own a PC and anyone who's bought a PC in the past seven years has a PC capable of playing most of what the 360 owners like to call "exclusives."
abzdine  +   717d ago

to answer you once and for all like all other people tried to do but you keep being stubborn is that GT5, Forza or other good quality game doesn't change anything to the fact that 360 got some of the worst exclusives since 2010.

You can find people who will love a game that scored 75+ on metacritic cause starting from there it's the opinion and taste of everyone that's gonna matter, but when it's games that haven't scored more than 30-50max you have nothing to do but facepalm in front of the TV while they're running.

Got it now?? i'm sure you haven't :D

Seriously, if any of you want the best gaming experience get a PS3/4.
Go out and get a PS3 and for PS+ $17.99 for 3 months you get to instantly download BF3, Saints Row The Third, Uncharted 3, LittleBigPlanet Karting, and 8 other PS3 games PLUS other 8 games for PS Vita if you have one. That's 20 GAMES from start! Free avatars, full game timed trials, free themes.And let's not forget the discounts on games Even if you pay for the whole year of PS+ $49.99 you are still on the winning side and covered for PS4.

Don't have $17.99 for PS+? It's ok. Go ahead and download the Free-to-Play games like DUST 514, Uncharted 3 Multiplayer and DC Universe Online.

Nothing like Playstation when it comes to gaming....seriously!

"And even after such facts some people here insist on calling us "fanboys" for defending Sony."

Actually, people call you fanboys for constantly trolling other people's interests. Go on a any Xbox 360 or Xbox One article and most likely, it has someone insulting someone or mocking them for their interest of their game, or the game itself.

There is no denying that the PS3 has definitely trumped the 360 in respect of exclusives, especially in the latter years of these consoles' lifecycles. But that doesn't give people an excuse to pour scorn over the games that people do enjoy.

Go to a Killer Instinct article; you'll get people mass disagreeing with any favourable comments.

Go to Forza; you'll get the same thing.

Go to Titanfall; loads of disagrees for people interested in the game or fanboys who can't help control themselves and mention that the game is most likely a timed exclused. So what? Timed exclusives don't matter anymore? How many of you could have waited, say 6 months longer for The Last of Us. No way I could; luckily I have both the PS3 and 360 (and actually play on both of them unlike many on here).

There's something about Sony trolls on here that just makes them unbearable. The double standards and hypocrisy is what's annoying. A misplaced sense of superiority complex runs through many of them, along with complete immaturity amongst even some of the higher-bubble members.

1) Cell processor made things difficult: comments blaming developers for being lazy were getting bubbled up. How obnoxious of these sofa-experts to suggest that

2) Cross-game chat + voice chat- PSN leaves a lot to be desired especially when you cant even send voice messages like you could on the original Xbox. But, instead of saying, fair play, the social functionality leaves a lot to be desired on the PS3; you have people deflecting the issue to PSN + and then mocking MS for charging for online play(which Sony will now do).

3) Downplaying the few exclusives MS does have: Try as hard as you might, Halo is veritable force in gaming and console FPS'. Forza is a bitter topic for many on here; the review scores all of a sudden are mired in conspiracy when compared to the beloved Gran Turismo. But why not just admit that Forza is a great game instead of desperately trying to claim that it isn't a simulator (some have said its an arcade game!)

I could go on about how The Last of Us had an online pass and was released amidst the whole furore about used games block but I don't. Sony aren't being defended on here. Sony fans are always on the offensive, in a rabid, foaming at the mouth manner.

Both the Xbox 360 and PS3 were great consoles. Both made mistakes but both offered something to all gamers. The Xbox One looks really impressive as does the PS4. You don't see me going around trolling Sony articles so why can't you kids grow up and just be mature?

The gaming medium is one of the best mediums on the planet in my opinion. Fair enough for constructive criticism but can you honestly say to me, that people here are constructive in their criticism? If they were, I doubt we'd see pathetic comments starting with "Bbbut but but.....the power of the cloudz lol."

OT: that is a worrying graph but here's hoping the Xbox One won't follow the same route. Now, with such negative PR, MS may have no choice but to remain committed to delivering good first party content. Remember...Sony started off terribly too. The tables had turned later on. There's no reason the same cannot happen with the X1. Early signs already indicate towards this happening.

I remember going back about 3 years seeing some of your comments that were obviously pro Sony anti MS and now your the peace keeper... Well you try to keep peace at least.

Ill admit I'm a Xbox only gamer or as some here on n4g suggest a non hardcore gamer purely because I like them only own the one console but difference is I choose the Xbox and they choose playstation but because they choose the playstation they think it's the only console, or the best console. The logic of all the people on this site baffles me. It's obvious that Sony have more exclusives than Xbox... Clear as day but I don't give a rats arse! Non of those exclusives interest me.
Of this current gen in gaming the best games in my opinion are:
-Mass Effect
-Battlefield bc,bc2,bf3 (couldn't stand bf2)
-Assassins creed
-Red Dead Redemption & GTA4
And I loved the GhostRecon Advanced Warfighter games.

Guess what they all had in common? The were all multiplats!!!
I firmly believe this coming gen of gaming is not next gen at all.
The day MS and Sony combine their online networks to allow cross platform gaming is the day we officially hit "Next Generation of gaming!".
Every gen since ps2 and original Xbox have been the same. New hardware new graphics new games, same old boring gameplay. Games are dying and the only way they can stay alive is not buying having ms die and fade away Microsoft bring far too much to the table to be dismissed by obvious bias opinions.

Most of my mates all Xbox gamers are considering going to playstation but that is only because of the price. Here in Australia there is a $50 difference between the 2. The One is $599 and the Ps4 is $549. But I will not support either until both companies open up about everything to do with their consoles. MS have tried to explain them selves only to stutter at the worst of times the while Sony just stand their giving us the thumbs up and a big old smile without saying anything. Ill wait till the new year before purchasing because in terms of preformance both are unknown. A safe 2 months should be long enough to gauge the scene more accurately.

However I would rather the Xbox one only based on the controller I'm comfortable with. But I'll try out the ps4 controller and if it feels as good as it looks I will definitely look at getting the PS4.

Since 2008 and especially 2010 PlayStation has been and should of been the best place to game.

"So what? Timed exclusives don't matter anymore? How many of you could have waited, say 6 months longer for The Last of Us"

Timed exclusives never mattered and it was not 'till this gen that people started trying to use that lame argument. Your comment on TLOU is prove to that... The sole purpose of an exclusive is to increase sales of a specific console, I know plenty of people who bought a PS3 just now because of TLOU, even some Xbox 360 owners, but how many of those people would be doing so if this game was coming to Xbox down the road? Maybe you are made of money, but most people won't put down 200+ dollars on another machine just to get a game 6 monthes earlier, specially when next gen is stalking at the corner. Now if the game is only there and nowhere else, guess what, eventually there's enough of those amazing exclusives to justify the console purchase.

And seriously, it's like 2006 all over again... "Oh, the Sony fanboys, plague of the Earth, the ones to blame for every crap that sticks to MS shoes". Have you ever considered that maybe one of the reasons people are so vocal agaisnt MS is exactly the points present in articles like the one being discussed here before you derailing it to off-topic?

MS ditched hardcores for kinect crap (look at this very article and than look at MS early years) and it doesn't stop there... They abuse gamers' inteligence with cheap techniques like equivalency policy, media payola, and, oh the irony, "timed exclusives"... Also they are far too greed for their own good, having multiplayer paywall, mandatory overpriced accessories, tryied to bully used games. And the list goes on and on...

Now, I'm not saying Sony don't make mistakes, far from it, they had been guilty of everything I'm accusing MS here eventually (Vita cards, PS4 PS+ requirement, timed content here and there), but it's not as frequent as MS (which itself also have it's good moments), but the difference is right there on this list, despite all eventual shortcomings, they keep providing great games, the solely reason we're are into this hobby, remember?

Not that I'm justifying trolling here (and I wouldn't bother with that if I were you, as, you know, to get you bothered is the point of trolling), but just cause Sony had been receiving positive feedback and MS negative, don't try and turn that into "oh the Sony fanboys are stalking us", it's pathetic and shortsighted of what actually is happening.

I agree. The PS3 does have more and better disk exclusives then the the X360 (by a long shot), but, quantity is not quality (most of those exclusives i wouldn't waste my time). As for disk exclusives Microsoft really needs to invest in more of them.
One other thing is that XBLA and PSN Games are not taken into account, and X360's XBLA does have more and better exclusives then PSN.

Now if I was to make a list of the 50 or 100 best games on consoles this generation, probably 80% would be multiplatform games. Just goes to show that the best multiplatform games are as good or better then the best exclusive games.

There is virtually no way to spin this...

Xbox360 has pretty much forgotten what the word "exclusive" actually means, especially the last 2 years... and someone has to be in denial not to actually see this.

Only this year (2013) PS3 has released/will release 6 blockbuster games. Its not only the quantity, its not even the quality, most of all its the DIVERSITY.

Look at this list:

God of War Ascension -> Hack n slash
Ni No Kuni -> JRPG
The Last of Us -> Survival Action
Beyond 2 Souls -> Thriller / Drama
Ratchet n Clank -> Platform
Gran Turismo 6 -> Racing.

That is what I call an awesome exclusive lineup. Quality games and from every genre out there... Meanwhile you have to really try to find 1-2 exclusives for 360 released this year.

The xbox never had such a thing, and will never have it, because the M$ philosophy doesnt give 2 shits about building up a family of studios like Sony does. All they do is fork some cash to get timed exclusive deals, write some big checks for the wrong reasons. Sony on the other hand invests their $ into acquiring promising studios and creating new IPs.

I really cannot understand how someone can not see this.

Yeah, ps3 had its share of diversity.
But lets look at whats ahead when deciding what to purchase.
The Xb1 delivers big on diversity, and anyone who did a half bit of research on upcoming XB1 games knows that.

But if you think the Xb360 never had diversity your a bit delusional, the 360 even had a platformer, Banjo from Rare, and it was just a good as any Ratched and clank game.

Besides that it also had survival games (Alan wake), Racing games (Forza) , j-Rpg's (Blue dragon) sandbox games (crackdown) W-Rpg (Fable) and ofcourse its 1st and 3rd person shooter gears and halo.

Seems diverse enough to me.

Of course most of the 50 best games would be multiplatform because there are way more multiplatform games, but after playing through most of this generations games I think that the best of the best were mostly PS3 exclusives.
Gears Of War 2 and Halo 3 are also on my list of most memorable games but looking at PS3 games there are Demon's Souls, Uncharted 2, God of War 3, MGS4, Last of Us, Ni No Kuni and even LBP or Valkyria Chronicles that all will be remembered by me for their unique experience.

Just the fact that you have to go waaay back up to 2007 to find games to complete your "diversive" list, while I am using only a 2013 list (!!!), plus the fact that you consider xbox1's list diversive, clearly shows the level of denial you are in.

Yeah i am in such denial about diversity, and they didnt even announce all their games for the first year yet.

And does it matter when they where released, and most of those where past 2007, how can i discuss with someone that makes up his own facts.
Fact is, if you have a 360 you got yourself a fair share of diversity, and the XB1 is going to do it even better because MS got twice as much studio's and doesnt have to rely so much on third party anymore.

You just made yourselfl ook even more delusional.

The ciritcs gave Banjo a good score, it just never lived up to the hype.
Both Ratched and Banjo got an 88 metacritic

The thing is the PS3 had both quantity and quality and continues to do so. Unless you consider the majority of Kinect games on the 360 as quality then I cannot help your there.


You are right the 360 had diversity but only at the beginning of the generation, after that they only relied on a few titles. I can see that as a legit worry for some gamers when it comes to the X1.

I personally purchased my 360 because MS was supporting JRPGs to the west but after Star Ocean there was nothing.

that's freaking pathetic and its sad that you hear people say they getting an xbox one for that sorry excuse of a games line up. they are not gamers they just fanboys who copy what they friends told them to get because there friends parents work for MS or the nsa spy for Kinect crap.

I've been bring up this point ever since the announcement of the X1.

I keep saying MS has a track record for dropping support for the core gamer after a couple of years after release and xbox fanboys keep disregarding this fact. And let's be clear, this isn't opinion, this is fact and now you can see it in graph form.

And MS is at it again, throwing money around like there's no tomorrow, buying timed exclusive deals, effectively blocking games on the PS4 instead of creating games for the X1. It's absolutely disgusting and I honestly can not respect anyone that blindly defend them, especially on this issue.

It's literally black and white and while it's great to see the hype the PS4 is getting on the net compared to the X1, I still feel, even considering this one aspect this article has brought up, Sony should be getting a lot lot more.

In my mind, if you're a gamer the obvious choice is to support the company that genuinely supports you, the gamer.
iceman06  +   717d ago
That is THE serious concern for anybody that is considering buying just the Xbox One. Sony has an established history of continued support for it's consoles...even at the end of a cycle. First generation Xbox was left to die when Xbox 360 came out. MS have never had to battle on 2 fronts so there is no telling what will happen with the 360. But, the last couple of years is NOT a good sign of things to come for it. The Xbox One has a great LAUNCH lineup. The question remains what kind of support will it have past year 2 or 3? Is this just another front loaded console or are they really committed to providing games for the core for an entire generation?

What I find funny about my dad is better than your dad is that no one seems to give a valued reason for why they picked the console they got.

I don't care who has the most exclusive that is not what sells consoles. The reason why consoles sell well is because people want games that are in that consoles.

For example gears fans will not go and buy a ps4 or Wiiu and Mario fans will not buy a one and ps4 and gt fans will not buy a one or Wiiu.

Why do people have to go on and on about what is better than what this site has just turned into a big day in day out playground.

Its simple if you want to play Ms exclusive games buy a Xbox one if you want Sony exclusive games buy a ps4 and if you want Nintendo exclusive games buy a Wiiu. It really is that simple.

Exclusives are my main reason for going with Playstation again, but I didn't think that it was this clear. Sony's first party is just too dominant, not only do they release exclusives regularly, most of them also belong to the best games each year. LBP, Uncharted 2, God Of War 3 or Last of Us for example. Can't wait to see on what PS4 projects the big Sony developers are working on right now.

Not really. They are just marketing it that way, since it's fairly obvious that Ps4 will not be just a gaming console and thus will pack wide array of non-gaming entertainment services as well.

well the Ps3 is more than just a gaming machine. haters tried to write it off as just a movie player that plays games at the start because Sony had the foresight to include Bluray.

but no one can deny Ps3 is a games machine first, and Sony's first preference is to gamers. that's why I'm getting ps4. for nearly two decades of awesome support of their platform. you really don't even have to question whether any console with PlayStation written on it is going to deliver games, it's just a given.

Manic2014  +   718d ago
I think the reason for the exclusive is partially the kinect and also the lack of franchises. though from the new gen it seem's they are expanding in the franchise area for the games. they have added 8 new franchises to combat those of which are coming soon on the PS4.
gaelic_laoch  +   718d ago
The 360 ended up being left on life support attached to the COD community. The PS3 is like an 80 year old still running marathons pumping out games like TLOU.

I'm pretty sure the 360 will be left to linger in a semi dead state to suck as much money out of FPS players for a few more years yet though!

@Foxgod, the point is: Halo sells well because it's a good game, but it gains bonus sales by being one of very few decent exclusives on Xbox 360.

Sony exclusives are many and varied, mostly of top tier quality. So these come along more often and people choose which to buy.

Few occasional decent games = must buy;
Many regular decent games = might buy.

Choice wins out here for the PlayStation owner and the wealth is spread among different developers helping them to grow and provide further choice. Win Win :)

Counting indie games to raise your stack of exclusives is even worse then counting kinect titles.

And even if we include indies as well then the list will only get bigger Warframe, Warthunder, SOE games compared to KI. That's just for free to play games which follow the free to play model as you don't need PS+ to play them.

"Also a lot of exclusives became multi, such as Metal Gear"

Actually it has been very few. From the PS2/Xbox generation to the PS3/360 a lot of exclusives went multiplatform (the way the industry went). But look at the pictures a large amount of those PS3 exclusives are done by first party studios. The very few third party exclusives that have now gone multi but they were few and far between.

I do have to give credit to Microsoft to getting more studios but I would like to see what they are doing before making a judgment on them. The last couple of years for the 360 showed a lot of Microsoft studios working solely on Kinect games. Sony's first party deserve the respect as they have been releasing some stellar franchises. Now I hope Microsoft do start doing the same but considering the Kinect cost so much to develop and how it is compulsory with The One I do doubt they will do less Kinect games

I agree. Retaining all of that talent is useless unless it produces games that people actually want to play. It's obvious that MS and Sony wanted to capture the "casual" crowd with motion sensing tech. However, the big difference is that Sony did it while still providing support to it's core. MS, on the other hand, just kind of re-focused it's efforts toward Kinect. I'm sure they made tons of cash, but did they gain any long term consumer confidence. Just look at Wii versus WiiU for evidence that casuals are just that. They got what they wanted from the Wii. They have no need for WiiU (no disrespect to the console at all).

Wow, I never knew this. Anyway lets look at this through the lens of subjective probability. According to the article, PS3 has way more console exclusives. This does not mean for the life span of the xbox1, and ps4, that ps4 will have more console exclusives again. It may very well be the case again, but only time will tell. As far as I see it, the slate is clean.

P.S. No I am not a fan boy, just a man who enjoys his games. Hope I get my ps4 watchdogs bundle early. Sometimes people get lucky and receive their releases before the street dates. = )

Something I been thinking about when it comes to the ps4 and how it is seemingly developer friendly compared to the ps3. Do you guys and gals think we will see more titles per year released throughout the year, or more titles released and bunched together in certain parts of the fiscal year with huge intervals inbetween releases? (Say like releases in the Spring, then releases during the Holiday seasons).
Narutone66  +   718d ago
Even if you say the slate is wipe clean, you should take into consideration the history of each company. For Sony, PS1, PS2 and then PS3, their supports are excellent. While for MS, see the first Xbox, what happened, how long were the original Xbox supported?
d4sholil1  +   717d ago

There is no clean slate, look at the past. M$ abandoned the first xbox as fast as they did Windows Vista lol. The 360 has received no support from them in years.

I really hope don't know about the increase in titles per year. Maybe. But, they don't want to reach over saturation. They have to balance exclusives with the multiplatform games and indies.
As for your first part, I understand trying to remain objective (not to impart any bias into a comparison). But, it's difficult to dismiss the history of both console makers. That pretty much defines them as companies and it defines their outlook on the future.

Because they're both at the end of their generations with successors ready to release that are vying for customers. Had you said to make a list for DS and PSP, it would have made more sense.

Question: how does the handheld market absolve your beloved Microsoft from their abysmal games support? Does it excuse their casual push on the 360, or quick support cutoff of the original Xbox? Looking at that massive list of games for an OPTIONAL Kinect, does it seem logical that the XBOne will have a smaller list when it's a MANDATORY part of the console?

GT5 and Halo Reach came out the same year and GT5 sold more.

Poor article

Counting PS3/Vita games is disgusting, they are not PS3 exlusives... And PC/360 games are not counted. WTF ?

PS3 fanboy article. And yes, PS3 is better, i'm not an xbox fag, but i hate articles like that.

This is why I'm going with ps4. Also people now are bringing up "ps4 has no games" "Xbox one showed more games" but it doesn't change the fact that 360 didn't release much exclusives since 2010 with only gears this year...wow. Sony has the track record.

Seriously who the f*uck cares?? Gamers will buy the console and games that appeals to them. I couldn't careless if a console has 100 exclusives if none of them appeals to me.
It doesn't matter how much you Sony fans want to show your insecurities and force your preferred console on everyone else, it simply wont make a difference in the real world, both consoles will sell well and be successful so get over it and be happy with your choice, and better yet be happy that there is a choice in the first place.

Xbox one will have a hard time selling "well". It'll struggle.

Hey deadie can you also tell me tomorrow's lotto numbers? Since you can see into the future.

Some of you are raging over an article makes me laugh. Just play games.

Anyone else notice that some games are missing?

Neptunia MK2 (how do you forget that with Neptunia 1 and 3 listed? xD), One Piece Pirate Musou / Pirate Warriors, One Piece Pirate Warriors 2 (if you ignore the Vita version), JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All Star battle, Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme VS, Super Robot Taisen, Kamen Rider, E.X. Troopers, Z/X, Gundam Record 0081, Hatsune Miku Project Diva F and a bunch more anime / light novels / Japanese things not listed.

Also for what it's worth, The Witch and the 100 knights is a title set to release in 2014, not 2013.

Also I agree with francknara6, since removing PC ports is a little unfair. Removing them, but keeping Vita makes the image more "fanboy" than helpful, especially since there are only like 7 PS3 / Vita games, where as I doubt there are 34 Xbox games lost to the PC (not that it matters).
