PS3 - First And Second Party Content

With Capcom no longer making any PS3 exclusives and AceCombat coming to the 360 release as well, there aren't that many third party exclusives left on the PS3 right now. Final Fantasy and MGS 4 are the last two big ones. And while it's not impossible that they stay exclusive, it's clearly questionable at this point.

The only games that are guaranteed to be PS3 exclusive are first and second party content. Just to clarify:

First Party The development studio is completely owned by Sony. For example, Polyphony Digital or Team Ico.
Second Party The development studio is completely independently owned but works on Sony funded and Sony owned PS3 projects. For example, Rathchet & Clank or Motorstorm.

Read on for a list of the upcoming announced first and second party content. I omitted retro ports (such as Gauntlet II), junk (Wheel of Fortune), and titles that are likely very early in development and a long way off (like sequels to Resistance or God of War) .

The story is too old to be commented.

Why do we keep talking about this over and over and over again? We have to have a new news article for each sites take on this? I was under the impression this was covered. Pretty sure its been discussed to death and that the verdict is that since developement cost are so high for next gen games and the install base so small that 3rd party developers have no choice but to go x-platform. Once the install base gets to a point where a 3rd party developer can create a game exclusive to one platform and make a good profit you will see them go back to making platform exclusive games.

Its not about loyalty or any of the other crap that people come up with its about business at the end of the day. All 3rd party developers are in this industry to make a profit just like any other business.

Does anyone remember that game that used the EyeToy2 to play an animated card game on a board? It kind of fell off the face of the earth and I don't even remember what it was called.
