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).

The story is too old to be commented.

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

ZodTheRipper1495d ago

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

abzdine1495d ago

yes that's what i'm talking about!
Exclusives, games, awesomeness..

*muzzling the xbox fanboys*
Da powaaah of da clowwwd.. ROFL

nix1495d ago

abzdine... totally agree.

i must have bought like 25 PS3 exclusive games... if i remember. my exclusive vs third party games is 4:1.

FATAL1TY1495d ago

PS3 wins, flawless victory. Fatality

Chug1495d ago

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

abzdine1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

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

dedicatedtogamers1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

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.

Septic1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

@abzdine and all the people that agreed with him

So is Forza better than GT seeing as you're throwing out metacritic review scores? Go on, answer me.

abzdine1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

@Septic: You think you are smart do you? :)

Arcade lovers prefer Forza, simulation people like myself go for GT, it's as simple as this.

But compare the case GT Forza to Otomedius or other broken 360 "core" exclusives doesn't stand my friend. well tried but better luck next time.

Enemy1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

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.

Septic1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

@ abzdine


Look at my first comment lol....see what I mean? Typical predictable behaviour.

"But compare the case GT Forza to Otomedius or other broken 360 "core" exclusives doesn't stand my friend. well tried but better luck next time"

What are you on about??

See, this is exactly the kind of nonsense posting I was alluding to in my first post.

mewhy321495d ago

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.

inveni01495d 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.

JoySticksFTW1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

@ 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.

But I still do miss you Open Zone :(

Septic1495d ago


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.

JoySticksFTW1495d ago (Edited 1495d 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.

Do you even play Forza?

Septic1495d ago

WTF are you on about? What does the fact that they are two QUALITY titles have to do with the fact that they are two games in THE SAME GENRE??


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

WTF??! WTF has Forza Horizon got to do with the core Forza games? You're talking about deflection and in the next sentence you complete deflect to something else! I never mentioned Forza Horizon, which is an off-shoot to to main Forza franchise!

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

Lol what?! You've got to be kidding. You are trolling right?

Mate, I assure you, I know exactly what I'm talking about. That cannot, IN ANY WAY, be said about you especially when reading your last post.

Mods- can you change it so that we can see who is agreeing/disagreeing? This is getting silly.

JoySticksFTW1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

Ok, go to the the elder scrolls IV: Oblivion wiki and then to the Demon's Souls wiki. They both state the games are Action Role Playing Games.

Which makes them Oh My God (septic dramatization) EXACTLY THE SAME GENRE!!!11!! :0

So I guess they play the same too right, buddy?

Like I said, you're drowning in your own argument. And begging the mods to bail you out of it is pretty silly. ;)

Oh I forgot to add more septic:

Buh buh buh, I meant "main line" Forza!! Not bastard off-shoots!!11!

C'mon bro, really?

Refuse to Lose, I guess. You fight that good fight, mate :D

Septic1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )


When you have make worthwhile points, come back to me. As of now, you are not prepared.

What a waste of time and bubbles

Lesson learnt though.

Anyway, agree to disagree. That list is woeful whatever way you look at it. Luckily we didn't see any Kinect-fare announced at E3. I think we'll see a lot more Kinect stuff at Gamescom but hopefully, the quality will be up par next gen.

Well, here's hoping anyway.

JoySticksFTW1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

Wha wha what?

The great Septic resorting to insults? For shame :'(

Septic "I lost therefore you don't know how to argue. Please my adoring public, PLEASE, don't notice I didn't have a valid response of my own." :D

Oh how the mighty has fallen. How did you sink so low?

Maybe it was a waste of bubbles for you, but I had fun ;)

I hope the lesson learned was to find humility. Lets get this back on track. Abz list was horrible, and everyone cautious of ms dropping core support mid generation should be

Septic1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )


I didn't mean that as insults mate but more like light-hearted jibes. Don't take it to heart.

"Oh how the mighty has fallen. How did you sink so low? "

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.

adventureghost1241495d ago

@nix bubble for you that was great

JoySticksFTW1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

Dude, Forza and GT ARE in the same genre but they play differently.

What's so hard to understand

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.

But no, because our opinions differ - you're right and the rest of us are trolling.

You even resorted to mod begging. Wtf dude, you showed poor form today.

We all have bad days though. Just learn from this one ;)

black0o1495d ago

I'm speechless by the denial stats of the xbots

Utalkin2me1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )


Pretty obvious you was in full defense mode and got offended by abzdine showing metacritic scores for the other 6 xbox core exclusives that did not fair well at all.

You can argue GT5 and Forza all you want. Doesn't change the fact of what is on the table far as exclusives for each console and how they fair.

Mainsqueeze1495d ago

You will probably see less kinect games because they don't have to sell the damn thing separately and try to entice ppl with more games for it.

1495d ago
kupomogli1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )


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.

kupomogli1495d ago


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."

abzdine1494d ago (Edited 1494d 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

EDIT: check the disagrees you're getting, proof enough you are WRONG!

Clive_Bixby1494d ago

What Kinect games did they show at E3?

xkvcq1494d ago (Edited 1494d ago )

What are you ON dude?

Forza Metacritic average out of 5 major installments=90

Gran Turismo average out of 6 major installments=89.5

You seriously arguing THAT hard because of ".5" of a difference?

Maybe you should play ALL of those games from start to finish before you start turning to metacritic and making false insinuations about quality.

Why shy away from Forza Horizon? I didn't shy away from GT5:Prologue in this calculation.

F***!!! I knew PS has more exclusives but seeing the comparison like this is clearly disturbing. That's a lot of Kinect crap!!

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!
