Turning around the previous "Are PS3 Exclusives Enough to Save the System?" question and pointing at the Xbox 360; does the console have enough quality exclusives to keep the system ahead of the PS3 in 2009?
To Top My Bond Game from last year
Save? SAVE?? SAVE??!?!?!?! bwhahahahaaaa, the PS3rd can't outsell it. Fvck worrying about saving it. It's kicking a$$.
what on earth does the 360 need saving from? I believe the title should say "are ps3 exclusives enough to save the system?" and the answer is: nope.
only games like Halo and Gears provide a simple boost.
short answer NO. and short question...What exclusives?
Sorry but iam a ps3 fan that wants to play dead rising and gears of war 2. There i said it. And for all you xbox fans out there wouldn't you want to play motorstorm:pr or killzone 2?
No, price is not the only thing keeping the 360 ahead. While the 360 could obviously use more exclusives, it does not need them as much as the PS3 does. Why? Because, as sales have shown, the 360 is dominating the multiplatform releases. This means two things: 1. Software companies will continue to release games for the 360 as long as it's profitable. 2. People will continue to buy the 360 because a large number of games are available for both it and the PS3. Many people also buy the 360 simply because more people HAVE a 360. It's sort of a snow-balling effect: your friend has one, and likes it, so you want one too. Not only that, but you can play games with them online. I know many people who owned PS2's last generation, but not XBoxes, who now have 360's. I'm one of them, in fact. It's an entirely different ballgame this generation, mostly because of Microsoft's head start and a solid line-up of games. Many of which are multiplatform, sure - but what does it matter, as long as they are great games? Like it or not, exclusives are far more important to the PS3 than the 360. Until the PS3 has a solid line-up of exclusive games that justify the price tag, people will continue to see the 360 as a cheaper alternative that has most of the same games anyway. Because that's exactly what it is. And in that regard, you are right - price is a major factor. But it's not the only factor. There is no sign that software companies will abandon the 360 any time soon, and as long as they support it, it's not going anywhere.
I think you are exactly right here. That's cool though, buy them both and get the best of both worlds.
360 line up: Mass Effect 2,Alan Wake,Darkest of Days,The Crossing,Halo: Chronicles,Warhound,Divinity 2: Ego Dragonis,Halo 3: Recon,Splinter Cell V: Conviction,Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope,Dungeon Hero,Venetica,Kingdom Under Fire 2: Dominion,Precursors,Dead Island,Ninja Blade,N32 (Ninety-Nine Nights 2),APB (All Points Bulletin),Huxley,Halo Wars,Postal III,Salvation,Cry On, Severity,Theseis,White Gold,2 days to Vegas,Project Forza 3....PLUS bioshock 2(better on 360 just like the first), PGR5, Too Human 2, silicon knights, KOTOR MMO...i used to have a ps3 but sold it last november because i was tired of garbage ass service...every game got changed to multi plat and those who stayed exclusive were delayed until 2026...KZ2 will be another haze and lair...nothing but good looking graphics...which i thought when 360 fanboys said "360 has better graphix"...ps3 fanboys responded by saying "its not about graphix its about gameplay"...yet all you annoying fanboys keep saying NOW "KZ2 is the BEST LOOKING game EVER and best gameplay"...yet the beta isnt the finished product....they said they were gonna fix socoms laggy horrible servers...never happened...so with all that said and my personal PSN experience...XBL>PSN and 360>PS3
you're REALLY bad at trolling. bundling their exclusive games is the only way sony can get a "simple boost," even then it only lasts for one month! get out ps3 troll, and take the other stinking trolls with you.
Did I really just see "TOO HUMAN 2" & 2 days 2 vegas padding the list? And Multipaltform games like Alan Wake/Huxley/Warhounds? I'm amazed by the # of games no one has heard of, nor does google even find any recent information for since 2005. Yes, those are all amazing reasons to own a PC,PS3, or 360. 360 fanboys define "grasping at straws"... 360 doesn't need saving. No console does. Its the place for cheap multiplatform gaming. Nothing wrong with that! For actual exclusives you can only play on a pS3, well. Theres the PS3. No one is forcing anyone to buy either, but for second to none games like MGS4/Uncharted/Motorstorm2/God OfWar/Killzone2/GranTurismo/Wa r hawk/Siren/Resistance/HeavyRai n /Infamous/MLB well, theres only 1 place on a playstation.
Alan Wake is NOT multi platform! PC run on windows and Windows belongs to Microsoft. MICROSOFT systems exclusive! Do you see this game being released on Mac or Linux based PC??? No right so therefore its not multi-plat!
You didn't check it. 3/4 of those games don't have confirmed release dates, quite a few are also coming to PC so aren't exclusive and more than a handful have been confirmed cancelled. Nice try though. "E" for effort. Edit: Oh, and Silicon Knights isn't a game. It's a developer.
The 360 isn't shy of exclusives, nor is it lacking any. It's the 2009, which still hasn't been revealed yet, lineup that is lacking in detail. But that's not enough to warrant the title. I see it as a really healthy system coming into this new year, as most if not all franchises are now multiplatform. Getting these franchises and developer support was more vital and crucial than exclusives alone. Yet they still managed to be the first platform for Mass Effect, Dead Rising, Gears, and even Bioshock. Either way, we don't even know the whole 2009 lineup for Microsoft as opposed to Sony's more revealing schedule, so the article is dubious.
i accidently deleted after silicon knights(PROJECT)...and yea there arent any confirmed release dates for some...but they are exclusive and whoever said alan wake is multiplatform should shoot themselves in the head....and really who said we were comparing exclusives between 360 and PC? the PC gaming world is a totally different world...we are talking ps3 vs 360 exclusives as in...NAME ANY GAME THATS ON 360 AND NOT ON PS3, and VICE VERSA!...so you sir have just epicly failed...and if you did research on stuff before you bashed it you would know half of those titles...but your just another fandroid..like i always say...im not a fanboy im an ex ps360 owner who finally saw the light and converted to the better system...X360...with TONS more games, better online service...yea keep crying $43 for 13 months...if you can afford a $500 system and $60 a game...you can damn sure pay for a better online service...and rarely do 360 games get delayed...
@bigc most of the hardcore gamers haven't even heard of 98% of the games you listed. all most likely mediocre and some even multiplat. if your're gonna spew out nonsense and false information do it somewhere else.
"Wow bigc072004, that's quite a list ya got going there. Problem is... You didn't check it. 3/4 of those games don't have confirmed release dates, quite a few are also coming to PC so aren't exclusive and more than a handful have been confirmed cancelled. Nice try though. "E" for effort." lmao darkride. its amazing how blind, stupid, ignorant, stuborn, irrational, and outright annoying fanboys are. damn dont be so stupid that you would resort to ifs,unknowns and maybes to prove a point that your console of choice is or has a better line up. why do you care, why are you so insecure about your system? just like the damn games and learn to appreciate ones you cant play that goes for ALL gamers. by the way ps3 rulz!!!! just kidding
some of those games u listed..as to being on the 360 1st..is because... Dead Rising - 360 was 1st on the market Bioshock --M$ paid 4 exclusivity & same with Mass Effect Gears they had epic sign a contract.... but the 360 line up isn't looking good again for the 2nd year in row,,,,M$ needs to step up there game
Microsoft knows this. That is why they are throwing checks at Capcom, Square Enix and other companies that GAMERS know make great games. Final Fantasy 4 is an example. I'm very disppointed with this generation. Microsoft is obviously no competetion for the PS3 with just Halo 3 and Gears of War 2 and Mass Effect. So what do they do? Throw checks. I love the 360, but I have no respect for Micrsoft. They are pigs.
you guys would retire the whole Microsoft buying everybody off assumption. And even if they did........I think I would prefer to have the system in which the company is spending money to bring games that I want to play. That was a played out argument that people have heard..and now use it like its a legit arguement. @Danja So Microsoft benefited from being first to the market...and? But in reality, didn't Sony delay the ps3?.......so it was Sony's fault they didn't get said titles.
MS is making millions from people getting duped into paying to play games online when you don't pay on Wii, PS3, or PC.
Did you not see the list he posted? Too Human 2? For the love of god, think before you post. I'm a 360 owner, and a huge 360 fan, I'm just not an idiot and I don't go around posting lists of made up exclusives. Mass Effect 2 - no release date - not confirmed exclusive Darkest of Days - PC The Crossing - PC, no release date Warhound - PC, no release date Divinity 2 - PC Ego Dragonis - PC Conviction - PC Dungeon Hero - On the PS3 Venetica - PC, no release date Kingdom Under Fire 2 - On the PS3 Precursors - PC Dead Island - On the PS3 Huxley - PC Postal III - On the PS3 You know, I'm not even going to discuss the rest. I think you get my point. That 360 exclusives list is pretty light on something...and that something is actual 360 exclusives. As I said. I'm a 360 fan, love my 360 - my gamertag is on my profile, say hi sometime. That's doesn't mean that that list wasn't crap.
and just because i like 360 100x more than ps3 NOW makes me a fanboy? wow you guys are half retarded...did you not read what i said? stop midway through the thing? look my PSN up...Al_caPWN89...ask a guy named AKSHOOTER47...he knows me...just because i came to the light unlike some people...doesn't make me a fanboy...and neither does defending my console of choice...just because those titles don't have release dates doesn't mean they won't come out this year...doesn't mean they will...all i said was they were coming to 360...and you guys are all like "ahh yea i havent heard of any of those games and they will end up on pc anyways ahh" get outta here....and yea i said too human...it is coming out this year...do some more research on it
gears of BUGS...auehauehaeu...giant worms, glasses rain, sounds like a DISNEY movie...
Microsoft really hasn't shown anything yet. we will just have to wait for more announcements. :)
Uh... Save it from what exactly? 360 and PS3... The gap got more wide again in sales the latest months it seems that the PS3 needs to be saved from staying in 3rd place.
it could possibly start to outsell the xbox360 in NA again thus adding to the beating the xbox360 is geting worldwide.
Well line-up for 360 does look a little weak to be honest, i hope they bring some better stuff out.
E3 and GDC will say hello
For you sake I hope your blind fanboyness turns out to be right.
I think you are blind whore. 360 is ahead of the ps3, they don't have to announce all there games months and months ahead like sony. and all the PC/360 games is because microsoft supports PC gaming *cough Windows/vista..
XBOTS PLAY GAMES GOT GROUPIES! Some PS3 droid (or Whore) got their feelings hurt so bad that they had to emulate my account. LMAO @ these cowards! If mods let cornballs like this get away with stuff like that then N4G = Fail!
blur, sony announces their games YEARS in advance not months. but i get your point man, bubbles. with sh1tty hardware sells, and even worse than sh1tty software sells, i think it's safe to say that ps3rd NEEDS SAVING.
Blur I hope your right with E3 and GDC last year at E3 M$ was nothing but multiplats Gears 2 and hey look we got FF13 I really hope they dont do that again and announce some real good games that have nothing to do with Halo or Gears.
"does the console have enough quality exclusives to keep the system ahead of the PS3 in 2009?" Ahead in sales? they're not gonna be at 28 million any time soon at this rate, let alone ahead of what the 360 will be at at that stage. To think they'd be ahead anytime in 2009 would be madness. This is factual
lol ms didn't even announce their 09 lineup so this article fail so hard.
nobody needs saving. the 360 has great third party support and you no they have more games they haven't talked about. Sony has great first and second party support, and the third party support is getting better everyday, even valve has gone from no way in hell to we will see. so in summary these needs saving articles stink. :)
so now according to the psfanboys a game has to be exclusive to be good? or is it the console with the most exclusives is the "better" console? you guys are funny as hell. you wanna know why, because even to this day the best sellers on ps3 are multiplats....so i guess this is ANOTHER hypocritical moment for ps3 fans? how about we wait for microsoft to announce their titles for 2009 for 360, before we do thoughtless bashing ok?! you guys said the same thing for 2008, and well everyone knows how that turned out.
errm...how did you manage that one? i thought games like mgs4, lbp and uncharted were best sellers for ps3? and the people that were posting that dead rising is exclusive for the 360...dead rising went multiplatform.
No system needs saving! This is just going to create unecessary flamebait, I'm afraid. They are all dandy systems with great games coming down the pipeline.
When Sony price cuts the PS3 I expect Microsoft to drop their price even further. $150 Arcades would sell better than the Wii. If you don't have the games, price cut... Aggressively.
I dunno if they will continue to cut prices, BUT i do believe they will have to start adding some sort of HDD. Maybe a Acade System for $200.00 that will have some sort of Couple Gb Storage device etc.
Didnt this website just publish the exact same article about the ps3? LoL http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... What a bunch of Dou Ches
Ha! Dou Ches very witty. Yes, this is actually in response to the first one where the PS3 folks were calling out the Xbox 360 as the system "doomed to fail" so what the hell, let's turn this around. I've got'em both and love'em both. Neither article spells the defeat of either console, if you were read it you would see that. That's cool though, it's easier to just reply to a reply to a reply. As far as the DLC goes - it's exclusive isn't it? Yeah.
The next halo? Oh there are already 2 halos in 2009. Bioshock 2? Nope that can't be it either.
Man, that was fast!
you have to admit,, multiplats play better on the 360 then on the ps3. Im not being a fanbou, just being honest. COD6 will have better online then the ps3 version as well as Operation Flashpoint, StormRise, Fear 2, Fuel, Aliens Colonial Marines, Red Faction, Borderlands, and Section 8. All of which I would never consider buying the ps3 versions of. edit @ Vincent Dude,, There are alot of games on the ps3 that are good, but just play alot better on the 360. You can say that it doesn't matter, but Im telling you right now that the 360 has way better online, period. I would never ever buy any of the games I listed above on the ps3. You risk the chance of having a laggier online and a possibility of not even having voice chat. Yes Burnout plays better on the ps3, but COD4 and 5 both both play better on the 360. Anyone who says different probably has never played both versions for both games.
Only if the lead console was the Xbox, lets wait and see how Ghost busters plays out, or Look at Burnout Paradise, Although i have never played it on the 360, it was Developed on Ps3, and it Run Very Smooth, this is not an argument, just observation. Add comment if there are more examples i am missing
It's usually the crappy games that don't run well on the ps3. Games like COD, RE5 and SF4 run very well on the ps3. Most of the time if it's a crappy port than it's a crappy game.
Multiplats play better on X System or Y System. What you have to realize is the difference is negligible in any multiplat game. You may see a difference but a very large portion of gamers could give a rats @ss (read: wouldn't see a difference) The argument of multiplats playing better on one system over another (although technically true) doesn't matter and only exists for FB's to have something to argue about.
whats your excuse for skate 2, ps3 was lead on that one, and 360 version is still better. enjoy ya framrate drops, going into the ps3's 3rd year on the market!
GTA IV - The Lost and the Damned <--- DLC Not a GAME Fallout 3 - Operation Anchorage <--- DLC NOT A GAME Halo Wars Ninja Blade Star Ocean 4 Splinter Cell: Conviction Mass Effect 2 Forza 3 (How DO I GET DISAGREED? Thats Absolutly Correct what i wrote)
It says "exclusives" not "games". The only thing shady is your eyesight.
Where is Alan Wake, Prey 2, warhound, Huxley, Dungeon Hero, APB, Chrome 2, Elveon, Theseis, Ninety-Nine Nights 2, Blue Dragon 2, new Lost Planet and Dead Rising 2 -(devs announced these games for 2009 and said they were "thinking about Multi platform)? All slated for 2009.
Wasn't Huxley canceled? Or am I just hearing the wrong things?
No. You are mistaken
what exclusives lol
soulja boy and Too Human 2 gonna rule them all.
with all these articles spelling doom for both the 360 and ps3's in 2009 lately
Exactly how does 360 need saving? Same goes with all these ridiculous RIP Ps3 articles. The fanboyism of this generation has reached new sickening levels. Spend more time gaming, and stop hating systems just because you don't own one.
I was thinking the exact same thing to myself today, i mean Console wars is becoming worse that politics, it is a very VERY touch subject, my and my friends get into it ALL the time, sometimes hanging up on each other with dirty names and ending up with an apology and a basket of Gourmet Coffee (doobie) to apologize for the wrong doing.
The really funny thing is that all of these fanboys don't realise that what they're doing is harming their own console's image further. When I see a PS3 fan going on about how the xbox sucks, has no good games and bashes on about how it's "price" is the only thing keeping it afloat (as if in this economy, it's a marginal point or something), it makes me ashamed to own a PS3. When I see a 360 fan going on about how stupidly expensive the PS3 is, how Blu-ray is rubbish and how the console is going to fail this year like it does every year (Note: I'm not saying this, Generic-360-fanboy is), it makes me ashamed to own a 360. Seriously kids, grow up, it's only an entertainment device, not a religious text.
holy crap, i said the exact same thing of the title article just a little while ago in the other thread. Here check it out: http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... looks like someone agrees with me lol
who the fvck is disagreeing with me u pussies.
You have to wait for MSFT to build a base of 120 million and then in the next generation fall in last place and sell the worst. MSFT has not even announced their 2009 lineup lol. I'm sick of hearing about PS3's supposed killer lineup every year.
Nothing needs saving. No machine is going anywhere, anytime soon.......PS3 has great exclusives, so will the 360 im sure, MS just need to reveal them when they think the time is right.
Another idiot that dont know crap about exclusives and the sony droids continues to suck on the pecker.
