Top PS3 Exclusives: 1. LittleBigPlanet: 95% 2. MGS4: 94% 3. Resistance 2: 87% 4. Valkyria Chronicles: 86% 5. MLB 08: The Show: 85% 6. SingStar: 82% 7. Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds: 81% 8.

awesomeness for all :)
Very close indeed. Let's see how next year will look.
Left 4 Dead also on PC, so not 360 exclusive.
ps3 is where the games at, but if anybody insist on how poor sales it got and that because of the ps3 poor sales(its still ahead of 360 this year) he/she will throw away some money on a console who sold more and leave the best games then go ahead, u might as well buy a wii and DS since they sell a hell of amount of consoles! sony playstation is always where the best games is located!!
I Guess PS3 had to win at something althoguh this chart was carefully desinged to put PS3 ontop lol. Top 10 retail or top ten scoring games? why is it retail? No big deal the top two PS3 titles were overhyped.
Naruto the Broken Bond is 80% and why they didn't include the PSN games and Arcade games...i'm wondering why mmmmm
LBP and MGS4 were overhyped as much as L4D was - if you don't like the game so much yourself you'll think it's overhyped. I tried the demo of L4D and I hated it - so for me it doesn't deserve those scores.
I'll work out the numbers if they did include downloads for 360 and PS3: LittleBigPlanet: 95% MGS4: 94% Resistance 2: 87% Wipeout HD: 87% Valkyria Chronicles: 86% MLB 08: The Show: 85% Pixel Junk Monsters: 83% SingStar: 82% Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds: 81% MotorStorm: Pacific Rift: 81% Average: 86.1% Gears of War 2: 93% Braid: 93 Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2: 90% Left 4 Dead: 89% Fable II: 89% Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise: 82% Castle Crashers: 82% Tales of Vesperia: 81% Ninja Gaiden II: 81% Poker Smash: 81% Average: 86.1% 360 really showed PS3 by scoring the same average when download titles are added. Poker Smash sure is on par with Motorstorm and Ninja Gaiden II.
@Pirate Thom let me fix it for you: Xbox 360 Gears of War 2 93% Braid 93% Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 90% Left 4 Dead 89% rez hd 89% fable 2 89% Ikaruga 88% n+ 83% Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise 82% Castle Crashers 82% avg 87,8% PS3: LittleBigPlanet 95% Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots 94% WipEout HD 87% Resistance 2 87% Valkyria Chronicles 86% MLB 08: The Show 85% PixelJunk Monsters 83% Crash Commando 83% SingStar 82% PixelJunk Monsters Encore 82% avg 86,4%
Rez and Ikaruga are also available on such consoles as PS2, DreamCast, GameCube and so on. N+ is on DS and PSP. Pixel Junk Monsters Encore is an expansion pack to PJM, so it doesn't count either. They don't count. Crash Commando is the only one I did miss, which conviently puts the PS3 ahead. LittleBigPlanet: 95% MGS4: 94% Resistance 2: 87% Wipeout HD: 87% Valkyria Chronicles: 86% MLB 08: The Show: 85% Pixel Junk Monsters: 83% Crash Commando 83% SingStar: 82% Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds: 81% Average: 86.3% Gears of War 2: 93% Braid: 93 Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2: 90% Left 4 Dead: 89% Fable II: 89% Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise: 82% Castle Crashers: 82% Tales of Vesperia: 81% Ninja Gaiden II: 81% Poker Smash: 81% Average: 86.1%
LMAO! Grand Turismo Prologue made the top-10 and it's just a DEMO! I'm glad others enjoyed it as much as I did! The REAL GT5 is gonna be amazing! If GT5 doesn't come out in 2009 I'm gonna be pissed!
though the scale of chart is kinda misleading.
yeh tyhanks for displaying it on the comments (for those hu never click the sourse and decide to comment biased stuff) yeh ps3 had some awesome exclusive this yer the 360 did have some good 1s gears of war 2 and fable 2 were good but ps3 had more games i preferred this yer
Lol @ the pitiful Wii list. Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection is really awesome /sarcasm
yah i thought so ^^,
Yeh looks like its aclear win for ps3 with 85.1% and xbox 360 with 82.6.. dunno what the guys above are on about
*does a moonwalk dance for the PS3* No doubt. I'm STILL amazed by how well Kojima wove the story of Metal Gear Solid together. What he did is nothing short of incredible. MGS has THE best storyline I have ever seen period.
I'm wondering why Left 4 Dead is on the Xbox 360 list... edit: Also, nice skewed, misleading chart.
How am I getting disagrees? The chart IS misleading. It starts at about 80% instead of starting at 0%, which makes it look like PS3 has a way better exclusive average %, when in reality it's very close between all three.
The reason why you got the disagree is because the article STATES that the statistic is scaled. No need for your to re-emphasize or spin what everyone else can read. They aren't misleading if they state it to your face.
Left 4 Dead isn't exclusive. If MGS4 was on PC you wouldn't have it there.
How can you put a single persons enjoyment of a exclusive into a graph.. Some people may have liked the game, some may have not. Both had good exclusives..saved you 2 pages of debates and BS.
I believe he used metacritic which compiles multiple critic reviews. So, it's not just one point of view. Though, I agree with you about both having good exclusive games.
You misread I'm not stating that one person decides the fate of which console had the better exclusives. My point was no person should have that right. Freedom of opinion still exists if anyone here remembers. I may like a certain game but I know people out there might not like it like I do. But putting opinions in a collection into a graph as if it were fact is just stupid. No console can have better exclusives if a person enjoyed it while another didn't. Again opinions can never become fact depending on the conditions.
I know, I just took your post too literal. There are people that like certain games and dislike others. But, to be honest, you can't really not expect somebody to do stuff like this. Especially with the whole PS3 vs 360 debate.
Agreed. If its not a system they have or like, be a complete jackass towards them. Thats all this debate has become on this site.
Well said Eiffel. I agree. It would be nice to actually discuss games here. Trying to put a numbered score on fun is foolish.
Not another one of these exclusive comparisons... 360 has some awesome games, PS3 has some awesome games lets leave it there, Metacritic isn't the definitive answer.
and that graph is misleading. They make it seem like PS3's has a ton more Exclusives lol fansites....
im not surprised. PS3 has the best exclusives. I still got MGS4 and LBP. Great title, great storyline, great online games, its great!
In my humble opinion.. the Sega Genesis
SNES. You're just a fanboy.
we all knew this already, ps3 is the way to go for exclusives
on what you like out of these exclusive. I've the best of both worlds :)
WHERE ARE THE XBOT TROLLS THAT FLOCK TO THE ANTI BLU RAY ARTICLES?
Good to see the 360 has the best exclusive shooter in Gears 2, easily beating Resistance 2. Good they also have the best RPG (Fable) and best co-op (Left 4 Dead) game also in the 360. While it is good to see the PS3 has the best movie exclusive game in MGS4 and kiddie platformer in LBP.
Seriously, both of you stop fanning the fire.
Open Zone is that way >>
I must stand up and applaud, I did not think anyone would be as pathetic as to try and flip this, which is also pathetic, but again Agent never ceases to amaze.
Everyone report Agent VX as "spam". He'll get banned to the "Open Zone" :D Gears 2 is a 3rd-person shooter. MGS4 is a 3rd-person shooter as well as an action game and it blows Gears 2 away! I loved MGS4 and beat it in 24 hours but maybe I missed something when I beat gears in 7 hours. I have Left 4 Dead on my PC and I'm glad since I'm waiting to get my 360 back from M$ after it RRoD'd for the 3rd time. At least I can L4D without worrying for the inevitable RRoD. Or I can play PS3 :P
Just report Agent VX as "spam" and take away his bubbles. Actually, that's pointless because he'll just go and make another name!
1. LittleBigPlanet: 95% 2. MGS4: 94% 3. Resistance 2: 87% 6. SingStar: 82% 9. Buzz! Quiz TV: 80% 10. Gran Turismo 5 Prologue: 80% 1. Gears of War 2: 93% 3. Fable II: 89% That's the games from the list I have bought, with Valkyria Chronicles on the "to buy" list.
I would go ahead and buy Valkyria Chronicles. Especially if you have a lull in your gaming right now and are waiting for the next big release. But be warned, it's a rather long and, on the hardest setting, challenging game that will suck you into its awesomeness.
Length isn't an issue! The longer the better, I played the demo ages ago and loved it, but with the sheer number of games that came out, never got a chance to pick it up. May try and acquire it tomorrow while I'm off work.
but using metacritics ratings which have already been proven to be screwed numbers by the fanboys that abuse that sight is rather dumb. it's like quoting VGchartz as fact, they are OK for rough guesstimates, but are definitely not factual. good year for gaming though!
Fanboys dont skew those numbers, unless they are a legitimate reviewing source.
I'm sure they used the Critics' reviews, not the user score.
Where is Braid?!? Oh well. It may not be a retail game but it deserves to be on the list. Also, dont you just love how misleading charts can me. Y-axis: .5 scale.... hmmm..
Yeah, the chart obviously is misleading because of the small intervals. By the way, in the article, it states that they did not include downloadable games.
wtf man! Stop trying to spin things, if that comment's not fanboyism I don't know what is, 'Gears of War easily beating R2' instead off basing your opinion of a metacritic rating, try the games yourself and decide which is better. Have you played MGS4? Sure it has a lot of cutscenes but its still a great game and you obviously haven't played LBP, calling it kiddy is just desperate can you think of a better argument as to why its rubbish? Nice to see PS3 had the two best exclusives and 360 had rubbish JRPGS... see what I did there?
yea how can "kiddie" game LBP have so many fantastic user-created levels. Most are made by adults and those levels are well-created and fantastic. As for "movie game" MGS4, you obviously never played any MGS. Story is the heart of the game hence reviewers love it. You can always "skip" the cut-scene if you want but you are missing the point of the game. "cutscene" = mission to take part in the game. IMO - MGS4 deserve to win GOTY 08 award. Go and play your beloved 360 which has so many "shoot-em-up" games.
both HD consoles had great games this year, now everyone join me on WTFing the Wii's list.
"hurr dis game is crap cuz i have never heard of it b4 lol" The only games that kinda made me "WTF?" on the Wii's list were the Pinball collection and MLB Power Pros. But then on the PS3 list you have MLB: The Show, Singstar, Hot Shots Golf, and Buzz! Quiz TV. And on the 360 list you have Left 4 Dead (not an exclusive, but its inclusion made the 360 "win" second place in the rankings), Naruto, Culdcept Saga, and arguably Lost Odyssey.
Nice one, Knave. I love how people disregard any game that doesn't have a number after the title. Sigh. I hate this generation of gamers.
I like the 360's top 3 better then the ps3. Especially for replay value. Gears, L4D, and fable were my favorite games this year along with MGS4. Good games for all though, I must say.
HMMMMMMM n4g you post this article but refuse to tell the world about all the zunes that froze today and fail to tell consumers about microsofts faulty hardware they sell but encourage it , sometimes you even force it on people and make them believe its their only choice . I hope you and the other large media outlets get put on trial and charged for spreading Proporganda and lies to consumers on a large scale
its ok that you're angry from yet another year going by with PS3rd place not doing anything special. If its any comfort, 2009 looks just as dull as 2008 for the PS3.
Are you kidding me? PS3 FTW!!! MGS4...what can possibly top that? And don't even mention 2009.
360 still had the better games in 2008, and with 2009 coming, we, "xbots" get the better version of resident evil 5. poor droids.
It's worth noting that these are using American ratings which typically favor the 360 where as Japanese ratings would favor the PS3 and Wii. IGN did an article like this using their own Australian rating and it seemed more unbiased. In any case, I own all three and can tell you there's some overrated and underrated games in that list. Banjo sucked, Fable 2 was definitely overrated and Motorstorm 2 was overrated. Resistance 2 was absolutely underrated given the scores Gears 2 got.
could see PS3 had MORE and better exclusives in 2008! Same will be said in 2009! MORE AND BETTER Why do you think MS is under cutting the Wii!
Both consoles had excellent exclusives with some good original titles coming through LBP in particular (although not a game I would buy). As for exclusives I want to play on those lists, the 360 wins on that score but thats my choice and not say anything bad about the PS3's lineup (I am more looking forward to the PS3's 2009 lineup than this years releases).
Be careful young one. Such logic is frowned upon at N4G.
Not just N4G sorry to say.
l4d is not exclusive to xbox. If someone can play game on other platform its not exclusive anymore. it doesnt matter if fanboys say its console excl. you can still play it without having an xbox. also the engine is 5 years old so argument with needing high spec pc fails.
this time the Wii will win it. mark my words...
The PS3 can have all the best exclusives of 2008 if they want too. But if people can't afford the console, then there's no use for them. Is there?
Well PS3 had the highest rated so i guess PS3 :)
yeah but more people seemed to actually buy the 360 exclusive games......i have seen gamestops with more used mgs4....than any other game....even halo 3 and gta for 360/ps3
