Which upcoming exclusive will define the PS3?

VGarabia.com

No one can argue the fact that Sony console has produced some of the best games this generation. I have been watching the sales performance of every big exclusive game for the PS3, as there are a lot of exclusive games for the PS3 sold pretty well but the problem is Sony PS3 still don't have a game as powerful as Halo 3 or Gears Of Wars1/2 when it comes to sales.

Some think its GT5. Others will tell you God of War 3, or Uncharted 2 or even LittleBig Planet.

Too many games I guess...

pure pwnage242936d ago

yeah I don't want 1 game to define the PS3, the more AAA games the better

Anon19742936d ago

I always thought the nice thing about the PS3 and the PS2 before it is that it catered to all gamers. There was no, one console defining franchise. There never has been for the Playstation, in my opinion.

Saaking2936d ago

I liked this response from one of the poster on the site:

"That’s because Halo and Gears are the only AAA titles on the Xbox.
The ps3 has so many AAA titles that ONE game cannot define the brand. We don’t want ONE game to define the PS brand. We want the PS to be known as the console with so many AAA games that we cannot choose the best."

-EvoAnubis-2936d ago

That's more or less what I was going to say. The PlayStation brand has never been about one or two AAA titles, but rather about a very large variety of great software.

There'll never be a game that "defines" the PS3; that would defeat the entire point of the PlayStation brand.

"Which upcoming exclusive will define the PS3?"

I could say Resistance 3, but then GT5 would come to mind.
I could say GT5, but then Heavy Rain would come to mind.
I could say Heavy Rain, but then Ratchet and Clank: Crack in Time would come to mind.
I could say Ratchet and Clank: Crack in Time, but then Uncharted 2 would come to mind.
I could say Uncharted 2, but then Killzone 3 would come to mind.
I could say Killzone 3, but then Infamous 2 would come to mind.
I could say Infamous 2, but then Final Fantasy 13: Versus would come to mind.
I could say Final Fantasy 13: Versus, but then MAG would come to mind.
I could say MAG, but then Final Fantasy 14 would come to mind.
I could say Final Fantasy 14, but then White Knight Chronicles would come to mind.
I could say White Knight Chronicles, but then LittleBigPlanet 2 would come to mind.
I could say LittleBigPlanet 2, but then Starhawk would come to mind.
I could say Starhawk, but then God of war 3 would come to mind
I could say God of war 3.......

See what i did there?

chaosatom2936d ago (Edited 2936d ago )

Defining the ps3 = Moving a lots of PS3s off the selves.

And the only way to do that is if PS3's price was lowered and lots of money went into ads.

I think by the time GOW3 or FF13 comes out, Sony would do just that and that would be the game that would 'define the ps3'

darthv722936d ago

Does the PS3 still need defining? It isnt the problem of the system but the consumers.

presto7172936d ago (Edited 2936d ago )

Does anyone know if Resistance 3 will run on Killzone 2's engine?

@RememberThe357

Thnx for answering. I just wasnt sure.

RememberThe3572936d ago (Edited 2936d ago )

But I agree. Sony is very clear about the fact that they don't want one game to define their console, and I honestly agree. With the PS1 and PS2 everyone had a different game that defined the console for them. I think that is the same thing that will happen to the PS3.

But as it stands now, I think Uncharted is defining the PlayStation brand right now. When I think PS3 I don't think Killzone or MGS, I think Uncharted 2.

@presto717: That is an almost guaranteed "no". I'm sure they will use some of the techniques GG used, but they have their own in house engine, Insomniac Engine. Resistance 2 is running version 2.0 and R&CF: A Crack In Time is running v4.0.

InfectedDK2936d ago (Edited 2936d ago )

In my opinion (right at this moment and upcoming):
- Gran Turismo
- Killzone
- Metal Gear Solid
- Tekken (Even if it's multi)
- LittleBigPlanet
- God of War
- Ratchet and Clank
- SingStar
- Buzz

Not Heavenly Sword, The Agency, White Knight Chronicles, Warhawk, FF, Demon Souls, WipeOut, SOCOM, Resistance, Shadow of Colossus, Ico, Motorstorm.. Even though all theese games are very very great games..

Heavy Rain, Agent, M.A.G, Uncharted and inFamous could be it at a later time.
Blade & Soul might also define the PS3 at a later point if it comes to the PS3.

As cool as a game ModNation Racers really is and will be I don't think it will be on this list.

sorceror1712936d ago

Nobody's mentioned that class of games yet.

We've got LBP already, and ModNation Racers coming out. Those are - literally - game changers. I know MNR is going to be a first-day for me - LBP has been so much fun it's stupid. And it *never gets old*, there's always new stuff, *every single day*.

chewmandinga2936d ago

to ps1 / ps2 days there were still too many things to think about that "defined the console".

ps1 - FF VII/VIII/IX, Metal Gear, Silent Hill, Parappa the Rapper, Crash Bandicoot, Tomb Raider, Syphon Filter, Tekken, Gran Turismo & Resi Evil, Tony Hawks 1 + 2

Ps2 - Final Fantasy X, Metal Gear 2 + 3, Shadow of Colossus, Ico, Killzone, Silent Hill 2 + 3, Gran Turismo 3 (that level with the rain!), Jak & Daxter, Grand Theft Auto, Bully, Devil May Cry, God of War, Kingdom Hearts.

ps3 - Killzone 2, Metal Gear 4, Uncharted 1 + 2, Ratchet & clank, infamous, Heavenly Sword, LittleBig, PixelJunk, Wipeout HD, Warhawk, Resistance, Motorstorm, GT5, Heavy Rain, Valkyrie Chronicles, Final Fantasy Versus XIII (probably), God of War 3.

There's always been far too many to count. It's been much easier for Xbox with Halo (not saying there weren't ANY good games for the whole Xbox 1 lifespan, but...yeah) as that game was literally THE reason to own one.

If PS3 had no exclusives except for Metal Gear, there would be no question that Snake would be our mascot, but he has so much competition from Sackboy, Cole, Nariko, Kratos, Drake Infamous, The Helghast it's hard to decide. Master chief has no real competition, except for the GoW guy.

Anyway...looking forward to GT5 & Uncharted this holiday season!

Boody-Bandit2936d ago (Edited 2936d ago )

Yeah CWalat I see what you did there.
I see you forgot a bunch of past and upcoming titles! ;)

Seriously though and sales aside, I thought the PS3 defined itself to me when I played Heavenly Sword (I'm a sucker for hack and slash titles). Regardless of ratings or sales it was the first title that I sat back and said "Man was that a freaking blast" (from start t finish). I played other games before it that I really enjoyed but that was the title that let me know (personally) this is going to be a hell of a generation for Sony.

himdeel2936d ago (Edited 2936d ago )

...has to be asked. We're not talking about just one or two games. We're talking about several games, and several different genre of games. It's nice that each game has their own individual strengths and each has the potent to be a heavy hitter sales wise.

I'm am still absolutely loving 2009 for PS3.

Cwalat2936d ago

@brutallyhonest...

Yeah i also think Heavenly Sword defines PS3, but the title says "upcoming exclusives"... Sorry

I hope they release a sequel to Heavenly Sword... But i doubt it, if they were to release one.. they would've announced it by now.

ps3d02936d ago

Got to love how stupid ps3 fanboy throw out every signle ps3 exclusive as a "AAA" game. You could do the same with the 360 if you wanted. Personally I say Halo, Gears, Forza , Mass Effect, Fable and Kameo are the 360 "AAA" games noted the sells are fairly poor on Kameo.

As for the ps3 I'd say its "defining" game is uncharted. MGS4 is their best selling game I believe. KZ2 is probably there best looking game. As for their AAA game so far I said the picking are pretty slim. You have uncharted, god of war 3 (think that be their next "defining game") and GT guess you could throw mgs in but god I hated that game.

IdleLeeSiuLung2936d ago

Sega had one. Nintendo has one. Microsoft has one.

Sony needs one!

ZombieAutopsy2936d ago

Your pretty much doing the same thing. Your being blinded by fanboyish-ness, your pretty much just listing every game that xbox could consider AAA so dont be a little weiner and call other people fanboys for you doing the same thing makes you look like a doooosh.

ultimolu2936d ago

This has to be the most dumbest question ever. There's too many games...I haven't even beat half of them yet. *coughs and looks at collection*

ps3d02936d ago

ZombieAutopsy that no where near every 360 exclusive that was 6 games and all of them are really good. Also I listed 4 games for the ps3 that I thought were "AAA" so how is that being a fanboy ? As to say thing like oh I dont know this maybe

I could say Resistance 3, but then GT5 would come to mind.
I could say GT5, but then Heavy Rain would come to mind.
I could say Heavy Rain, but then Ratchet and Clank: Crack in Time would come to mind.
I could say Ratchet and Clank: Crack in Time, but then Uncharted 2 would come to mind.
I could say Uncharted 2, but then Killzone 3 would come to mind.
I could say Killzone 3, but then Infamous 2 would come to mind.
I could say Infamous 2, but then Final Fantasy 13: Versus would come to mind.
I could say Final Fantasy 13: Versus, but then MAG would come to mind.
I could say MAG, but then Final Fantasy 14 would come to mind.
I could say Final Fantasy 14, but then White Knight Chronicles would come to mind.
I could say White Knight Chronicles, but then LittleBigPlanet 2 would come to mind.
I could say LittleBigPlanet 2, but then Starhawk would come to mind.
I could say Starhawk, but then God of war 3 would come to mind
I could say God of war 3.......

WTF is starhawk as anyone ever heard of that ? LBP 2 ? when was this anounced ? OH and the 1st one was boring as hell. FF14 a mmorpg are you f*cking kidding me ? beside who the hell play mmorpgs on a consoles ? Heavy Rain wtf is that game even about yay it looks pretty great where the damn gameplay ? R3, KZ3 I'm sorry when were these games were annonced when again ? not only did that idiot list almost every single game for the ps3 he made up titles as he went.

maybe I should slap Too Human, Viva Pinata , Banjo-Kazooie ,Blue Dragon, Star Ocean 4, Lost Odyssey, Lips, Infinite Undiscovery all on 360 AAA list even though half those games suck.

Just cause I'm not sitting around saying how great the ps3 and and how much I hate the 360 and how the 360 sucks and rodd blah blah blah rodd and oh rodd doenst make me a fanboy.

I named off games that were great games on both systems and that anyone who is a gamer should enjoy

Mario2936d ago

Playstation has never been defined by one game. Its been defined by many, spanning every genre. That is why playstation has always been so successful. Yet, if i was to single out 1 game as defining, it would have to be Gran Turismo. Gran Turismo is playstation and playstation is gran turismo. It is what playstation is about: quality and excellence. It is also playstations biggest selling franchise and has grown alongside playstation since the beginning, showing the best that each console could possibly deliver. I think Gran Turismo 5 will define the ps3. It excels. And he it launches before xmas with the price cut, it will push ps3 onto a completely different level and will be a defining point in the life of the playstation 3. The turning point

FamilyGuy2936d ago (Edited 2936d ago )

That was a great comment find, it's very true.

@ps3do, it says "upcoming exclusives" and if you had played some of those games you would KNOW that sequels are planned simply because of the way they end. It's not like he said off the wall like Metal Gear Solid 5 where there's no indication of the games existence.

Upcoming wow

Uncharted 2
GOW3
FFXIV
FFvsXII
White Knight Chronicles
ModNation Racers
Demons Souls
->Fat Princess recently came out but even THAT game defines the PS brand to some level. Fun and lighthearted but at the same time for core gamers with it's bloody limbs all over the battle field and strategic game play.
Heavy rain
Gran turismo 5
Eye Pet
->Quantum could end up showing it's diversity and why it's not simply a "gears clone"
Warhawk 2 "Starhawk"
Agent
The Last Guardian
MAG
Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time

That's a pretty long list and all will define the PS3, not just 2-4.

uncharted 2 will be much bigger than 1

I hope sony shows agent,Im really interested about it and tbh Im interested about mag

militant072936d ago

im not sure, but agent is R* game not a sony game, so they decided!

guitarded772936d ago

I'm sick of hearing how great a game is determined by sales. I enjoy gaming on my PS3 and 360 and like exclusives on both, but IMO the PS3 has better exclusives. I like MGS4, LBP and Killzone better than Halo and Gears 1&2. As for upcoming exclusives that are going to bring people to the PS3 GoW3, U2, GT5 and MAG are sure winners, but I don't think it's the games holding people back, but the price of the system. Once a system price break occurs we'll see a spike in sales for some of the older exclusives.

Boody-Bandit2936d ago (Edited 2936d ago )

I agreed with "I'm sick of hearing how great a game is determined by sales"
because if that were true Wii Fit (not counting Wii Sport because it is packed in with the console) would be considered the greatest game this generation.

@ saaking

"The ps3 has so many AAA titles that ONE game cannot define the brand. We don’t want ONE game to define the PS brand. We want the PS to be known as the console with so many AAA games that we cannot choose the best.""

Wrong. LittleBigPlanet agreed, 9.5 out of 10 AAA game and thats why I got my PS3 LBP pack, great boxart.

The rest above 9 out of 10 is a BluRay movie aka MGS4 and a generic shooter called KZ2.

No other defining AAA games on the POS3 now. Uncharted 2 will be a great game this October though, the second AAA game worth on the PS3 for me.

2008: LBP
2009: Uncharted 2
2010 God of War III

About one game a year for me on the PS3.

raztad2936d ago

@Mart

A honest question: in what way KZ2 is generic?

MGS a BD movie? may be BUT what an AWESOME movie. LOL. Many of you were really excited just with a spinof of that "movie".

UC2, GoW3 (this defines PS3 IMO), GT5, LBP, inFAMOUS, yeah there is more than just one exclusive.

Gue12936d ago

I hope you learn something because you're very stupid. >_>

nycredude2936d ago

Mart.. I don't know how you still have 5 bubbles.

BTW which exclusive.. oops, I mean multiplats will define the xbox 360?

xztence2936d ago (Edited 2936d ago )

Oh really? is that why you xbots cried so much about wanting it on your console? so much that Kojima had to shut you all up SEVERAL times and gave you a spin off so you stopped crying?

Tell me now.

"About one game a year for me on the PS3."

Ok, so what does your 360 have every year? more Halo?
arent you getting fed up with that POS generic shooter? come on now.

Man_of_the_year2936d ago (Edited 2936d ago )

KZ2 is generic because it doens't bring anything new to the FPS genre, and that is not its fault since the FPS genre is very saturated. But KZ2 is COD4. Basically using the same perk system. They didn't really introduce any kind of Feature that could innovate the game. It's online is very similar to COD4 except COD4 atleast lets you see the replay of how you died unlike KZ2.

KZ2 looks great, no doubt about it, but what did it intorduce in the FPS genre that really set it apart of the online features of and anykind of feature or gameplay that wasn't already in games like COD4? And don't say the targeting cause we all know how well that worked out for them.

MGS4 is more movie than game. My first playthrough was 18 hours, and 9+ hours of that is cutscenes and cinematics, and not all the cinematics were that great, i actually was falling asleep through a lot of the dialoge of just them talking...which went on for lengthly periods of time, but the actual scenes where there were action were brilliant.

When i think of the games that have defined the PS namebrand, FF, GT GOW, MGS. So since FF is no longer exclusive franchises to the PS3, i would have to say GOW and GT and MGS. 3 great franchises.

@xztence - Are you kidding me? It's not a transition of gametypes, they are preset when the game starts depending on the host. Then the gametypes just go in order, give me a break. And then Class Systems...COD4 has that too. WHAT DID KZ2 BRING THAT HASN'T BEEN DONE BEFORE!!! I didn't say it didn't bring anything to the table, i said it didn't bring anything NEW!!! Get your Sh1t straight and lose the fanboy goggles. And What the Fvck are to talking about with MGS4? So you agreed with me but just wanted to put your 2 cents in...LOL stupid Fvck get out of here. I didn't say anything about the experience one has in the end after playing it. I didn't say it was a bad game neither. What i did say about the game you just agreed with, so Why the Fvck are you even mentioning MGS4 like i said anyting bad about the overall game. Stupid ignorant SDF fvcktard.

xztence2936d ago (Edited 2936d ago )

"But KZ2 is COD4. Basically using the same perk system. They didn't really introduce any kind of Feature that could innovate the game. It's online is very similar to COD4 except COD4 atleast lets you see the replay of how you died unlike KZ2."

Bullsh!t. Does COD 4 have an online system that fluidly transitiones between game modes? does any other game have that?
Does COD4 actually have class system that emphasize on the classes and are being used accordingly?

You sound so biased. KZ 2 might not innovate the fps genre but its wrong to say it did bring absolutely nothing new to the table.

"MGS4 is more movie than game"

you know what, who cares its the end experience that counts and MGS4 is an experience no MGS fan will want to miss. end of story.

Edit @ above
Hahaha, why are you so angry dipsh!t, and when did I say I agreed with your retarded views on MGS4? I told you to stop whining about it being a movie and just enjoy the game you F*cking d*ckwad.
and what you said about KZ 2, yes they go in order but read stupid horsesh!t I said FLUIDLY.
seems like you cant comprehend what I said go READ it again.
and did I say COD 4 doesnt have classes? NO. I said the classes in KZ 2 are actually used accordingly and differ instead of those in COD.

God why do I even bother explaining to a retarded xbot anyway.

Pennywise2936d ago

SEE WHAT HAPPENS YOU PROLIFE ADVOCATES!

Mart your mind is warped. The 360 has not seen a good game since...... Gears2,maybe? I say maybe because its online is STILL broke. Quit being such a whiny hypocrite.

raztad2936d ago (Edited 2936d ago )

@man of the year

With all respect dude. KZ2 is far from generic. First what other game got the atmosphere KZ2 has? None

Second, what other FPS got the cover system KZ2 has? None. BTw, this couldnt be overemphasized, KZ2 COVER system is not a gimmickry you decide to skip and play the game as a GENERIC run and gun shooter like COD4, and upcoming MW2.

Third, What other game got KZ2 AI? this alone set KZ2 far apart from the crow of Generic FPSes out there.

Four, What other game you feel the weight of your Gear and it affects radically the gameplay? None.

KZ2 story is not yet ANOTHER GENERIC anti-terrorist story like COD4.

I can understand why COD4 lovers hate KZ2. They are too used to twitchy gameplay but KZ2 is far from generic. Simply put, KZ2 is a unique game, it shares a lot of things with other FPS of course, however it got a lot of personality and its own gameplay variations that makes it quite different to other FPSs out there.

TheMART2936d ago

Exactly how Man o/t Year explains.

@ crying Pennywise

I'll be playing Forza 3, Halo: ODST and L4D 2 on my 360 this year compared to one good game on the PS3 this year, Uncharted 2.

Besides that, I'll enjoy the better running and looking multiplatform games on my 360, besides that with the better online system. Brutal Legend, Assassins Creed 2, Modern Warfare 2 to name a few.

Thats why the 360 remains the better gaming device. Also in 2009. Maybe 2010 will be PS3's year. Maybe. Or maybe 2011. Maybe 2012 but that'll be PS4's launch year.

Shane Kim2936d ago

And Halo 3 redefined FPS gaming? It's the same sh!t as CoD only WORSE!

callahan092936d ago

Mart, I'm sorry that you won't be playing Ratchet & Clank or Demon's Souls, and that you're ignoring inFamous. There are some truly GREAT games for PS3 this year.

TheMART2936d ago

@ Calahan

I have a Ratchet&Clank game already, its nice, but then again one of these is enough.

And inFamous, I'm not that much into sandbox games first, second I don't think it looks all that great and I didn't like the gameplay in the demo. Its not a great, great game with over 9 out of 10 must have also.

So this year has Uncharted for me only that will be really really great. Next year God of War III and maybe GT5 if not further delayed.

callahan092936d ago

Well, Mart, I must say that I didn't like the demo for inFamous either. I found the graphics mediocre and the missions boring and I just found a hard time liking it. Ended up starting a new game at a friend's who had bought it, and really enjoyed the beginning part, so then I bought it myself and I must say that the actual game is WAY better than the demo led on. And the graphics remarkably good in that game. The draw distance isn't the longest, but the textures are really high quality and the particle and explosive effects are second to none. Sometimes the game has so much going on, it's crazy, you'll see literally tons of explosions going off, cars flying through the air, sparks flying everywhere, it's really a visual sight to behold at times. Anyway, the game plays like a more focused version of a sandbox game. It's coherent and structured in a way that most sandbox games are not, but it has a lot of VARIETY like a sandbox game, and a really big open world to explore at your leisure if you should so desire. All in all, it's easily one of the best games this year, if not the best, and I think you should rent it, you might discover that you like it as much as I did.

Saaking2936d ago

You could say any shooter is generic but Killzone 2 is not generic and it is most definitely NOT like CoD 4 at all. I think Gears 2 is generic because it brought nothing new to the third person shooter genre, see how that works.
