PS3 won the exclusives battle....but all the multiplats are a better experience on the 360, thanks to cross game chat, game invites and private party chat. I'd say it was a close 1st quarter with the 360 just taking the win.

dude just play the games and stop talking bullsh!t

GWAVE3449d ago

Multiplats are a "better experience" due to non-gaming features? Enlighten me. Maybe I'm just TOOOOO much of a casual gamer to understand your superior perspective, but everything you mentioned that is supposedly superior on the 360 has nothing to do with gaming. If you had mentioned the exclusive GTA4 DLC that would have made sense, because it's related to gaming, but you didn't.

When I think of a game being supposedly superior on one console or another, I usually am talking about better graphics, more content, better controls, etc., NOT some minor non-gaming features that I have to pay $50 a year to use.

Mooks - Back to the batcave!

Ps3 took Q1 hands down.

-MoOkS-3449d ago

All those features listed add ALOT to the gaming experience...therefore making those multiplat games more enjoyable on the 360 compared to ps3.

SIdepocket3449d ago (Edited 3449d ago )

Party chat is awesome. Online games are always better on the 360. PSN is still too laggy and buggy.

GWAVE3449d ago

@ Mooks

So let me get this straight...you'd rather take some small additional features for 360 multiplat games than "inferior" versions of those same games plus exclusives? You think the 360 was "just taking the win" in Q1 when all it had was slightly better multiplat games? You DO realize that all of those multiplat games are also available on the PS3, right? That's why they're called "multiplat".

You're not a gamer. You would rather take cross-game chat than actual games? Boy, I've seen it all.

You're just a troll

xabmol3448d ago

Seriously, what do cross game invites do that a quick text can't?

PS button, left, left, triangle, create message, type "KZ2?", send.

Wow that's hard to do. *rolls eyes*

As for cross game chat.

Why would anybody brag abut being able to talk on the phone while gaming?! I don't know about you guys but while I'm playing a game I don't want to be BSing with a buddy. I want to play the damn game.

PirateThom3448d ago

The fact Street Fighter IV was a better experience due to controller is a bigger deal than cross game chat.

Imallvol73448d ago

mooks . . . you make me smile! ahaha

who cares which console is better or has more exclusives, seriously. the real winners are the people that own all current gen consoles and have fun playing all the best games this generation has to offer.

fan boys make me laugh.

FPShooter3448d ago (Edited 3448d ago )

Exactly! I have been saying just that for a while. the truth is they know that the only thing they have to brag about is cross game chat.
WoW big fn deal. What will they brag about when the feature comes to the PSN for FREE.

Xbox is the BEST3448d ago

I'm pretty good with the 360 controller, rarely use the D-pad. But I must agree SF4 PS3 controller better. Haven't gotten SF4 yet but will be getting it for both systems

KKanjiAnkh3448d ago (Edited 3448d ago )

If you bought the same game on a different system, as your friend, looked, played, acted, experienced the same reactions, mission accomplished. Internet is a perk, and is NOT, a necessity to the core gameplay. You take the NET away and find out how cruel the gaming world, can truly be, since everyone's been doing just fine before.

xabmol3448d ago

It all makes so much sense now.

@Perjoss

Enter the "I have both consoles guy" who just stops by to make himself feel better by gloating.

Looks like he forgot about Ninja Blade and Stoked. If he's gonna mention MLB: The Show he might as well mention them too.

examiner.com is a little out there.

Obama3448d ago

they did forget to mention a flop, but does that change anything?

Spike473449d ago (Edited 3449d ago )

Some of the those features are not really known to the wide audience. People just buy the game for the console they have.

And he's basically saing he rather take cross game whatever and some other minor features rather than a whole exclusive game.

THATS WHY XBOX360 OWNERS ARE NOW PLAYING CRAPPY FALLOUT 3 DLC RATHER THAN AN EXCLUSIVE GAME.

Phantom_T3448d ago

Totally agree,If i have to listen to peoples stupid one sided conversations whilst i'm playing games I'll strangle somebody.

Thoreau3448d ago

i don't want to pay for p2p servers. i'll take my free psn.

HDgamer3448d ago

but but if you play on dedicated servers you're only missing out on the p2p 4v4 war.
