2009 - How the PS3 Tides have Turned

PlayStation LifeStyle: "Ever since its launch in November 2006, the PS3 has recieved a significant amount of criticism over its software lineup, much of which was justified. During its first six months of availability, the PS3 had only received two titles worthy of praise, Motorstorm and Resistance: Fall of Man. Overall software quality was just one of many complaints regarding the fledgling platform, but has become the leading topic in regards to why the PS3 has managed to make so many inroads over the past three years."

So far, 3rd party developers are loving the PS3 hardware. But i really wonder how they're going to compete against the likes of Uncharted 2 and God of War 3 without making the PS3 versions of their games better than the 360 versions.

I expect some big arguments at next year's GDC conference.

ps3gamerkyle3202d ago

Could you imagine an argument breaking out into a fight? Gabe Newell's first weapon would be a Big Mac.


morganfell3202d ago

And his opponent's first weapon will be to steal said Big Mac....

SnuggleBandit3202d ago

Ya it sure will be interesting to see third party games in a year or so after the likes of uncharted 2 and God of war come out. Will 3rd party devs stay multiplat or will we see more exclusives for the ps3?

Hell, to me this "tide" has been a Tsunami traveling in one direction since September '95. Δ Ο X □

Throw his Big Mac! How is he going to eat then? No, I think he'll bludgeon people with it, and then take a bite out of it.

Anyways glad ps3 is starting to take stride with its exclusive games. One starts to worry about how many games have 3's, 4's, 5's behind their names. It's nice to have new ips that turn out to be great like Uncharted.

C_SoL3202d ago

no but seriously Sony it's all about the games period.

A lot of 3rd party games are good but a lot of them are junk.

That's why I go for exclusives. Something to put my money's worth into.

And Sony has ;)

ultimolu3202d ago (Edited 3202d ago )

Guys, leave Newell alone. xD

Be nice.

But this is a great article. I'm proud to own a PS3.

cmrbe3202d ago

however i think as long as the userbase is about even we will not see most 3rd parties utilise the PS3 like Sony's internal studios. Sony has been trying to help 3rd parties alot lately and its starting to show.

gaffyh3202d ago

This is a good editorial, but there are quite a few grammatical mistakes and there are some sentences that don't make sense. Would have been an idea to read through it once more before submitting it to the website.

Despite that, very valid points, but fanboys will always argue against facts.

king dong33202d ago (Edited 3202d ago )

killzone is superb on-line, but i dont think the single player is anything spectacular. and infamous for me was nothing but a free-roaming brawler with the most repetitive missions ever. i agree that 09 is turning into one of the best ever years for gaming, but i think it stinks of bias and just a smidgen of fanboyism to totally disregard the opposition(no matter how much you kids hate them).

i know i'm barking up the wrong tree, this is n4g, the home of the sony fanboy! and although i agree that if you are a gamer you should not be without a ps3, i think that if you are gamer you should not be without a 360 either... sorry kids, quick press the disagree button its great when you do.

lol @ editorial!!! it's a blog, the same as all the other sh!tty fücking blogs that get wrote especially for blogs4gamers...fück me this site gets worse by the day!!

morganfell what are you doing here???

Nikuma3202d ago

If Sony hasn't already... I think they should make their game engines, the Killzone2 engine for example, available to third parties to use to develop games. It's a strong PS3 engine and it would be much easier to make a quality game on. I dunno just my 2cents.

FamilyGuy3201d ago (Edited 3201d ago )

LMAO! That was the EXACT moment I hit disagree!

I don't believe you need a 360 this gen but you truly NEED a PS3 if you consider yourself a gamer. I'm not missing ANYTHING that's on the 360 but there's a plethora of people who are willing and have bought a PS3 "just for the exclusives".

There are no exclusives yet on the 360 that make me regret not having one. The 360 needs a groundbreaking new IP or something, maybe Alan Wake will be that, i like the style, but who knows. Gears looks great when it was first released, the commercials left me in awe, BUT my interest in the game PLUMMETED when I actually saw it first-hand/in action. The big monster from the commercials wasn't even in the game! And it lost a coat of luster as well ("bullshots" i hear they're called).

Anyway, I didn't want to simply hit disagree because what you said really stood out and my opinion is so far from it.

This is what happens when you put effort into an article. Instead of spewing hate, PSLS tells it like it is.

JonnyBigBoss3202d ago

Thanks for the compliments. We try very hard to bring gamers articles that are worth reading.

morganfell3202d ago

PSLS is a far cry from publications such as EGM. Not for their percieved affiliation but rather because incidents such as the infamous PS3/tomato photo and article would never find themselves onto their site.

king dong33202d ago

anyone that doesn't want to martyr themselves for sony or suck enough automatically hates or is nothing but a blog? yet any site that is ready for a dry sony corn-holing is now a shinig example of journalism???lol i suupose that includes gamer.blorge, badassgamerblog, thegameraccess and all the other sony loving blog sites.

but if this was an xbox site you lot would be all this saying how bias it was..hypocrisy at its finest. dont think that i dont love my ps3 coz i do, i just hate you fücking fanboys thats all.

sort it out!

Natsu X FairyTail3202d ago (Edited 3202d ago )

2009 is indeed a better year for PS3.

There's alot of good titles that came out during the 1st half of 09 for the ps3 like

Demon SOuls
MLB the show

there is some more coming like Uncharted , GT5 , Ratchet . 09 will be a Great year all around for the PS3.


Xbox360 lacked in games for half of the year and will have good ones for the end of the year . which can make people angry( Me ) because we want to play good exclusives/Multiplats all year long and Not just @ the end of the year.

ps3gamerkyle3202d ago

About Uncharted 2 and Ratchet and Clank (for this year).

2010 is looking AWESOME.. Here is what the PS3 is looking to get:

Heavy Rain
MLB 10
God of War 3
War Devil
Modnation Racers

And a whole bunch more I can't think of, off the top of my head.

Rockox3202d ago

The PS3 is starting to look pretty good. I expect I'll probably pick one up in another year or so.

Natsu X FairyTail3202d ago (Edited 3202d ago )


" Don't forget
About Uncharted 2 and Ratchet and Clank (for this year). "

I named them all already. lmao

Rifle-Man3202d ago

Things really do seem to be heating up. Can't wait for the 18th!

El Botto3202d ago

And karma is out to get the xbots!


El Botto3202d ago

Obsolete line up and nonfutureproof system = obsolete console

If thats not a fact then you might aswell dig up a HD DVD add on player!

That piece of shiat, like the 360, is totally worthless.
