PSInsider compares lost exclusives between the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Urrrr ? Hmmmmmm ? Let me Think ? Ahhhh !! The 3Shitsty !!!
Yeah the 360 no doubt about it & M$ didn't even benefit that much from the games they stole... MGSR is a spin off & the other is a gimped version on multiple DVDs while the PS3 owners gets two exclusive titles from the same franchise & we keep MGS4.
I say "steal", because in reality most of those games were from 3rd party publishers who will most likely have ported it on multiple consoles ANYWAY. The real PS3 games stay PS3 because they are owned by Sony themselves. And let us not forget the "MGS4 coming to 360" CRAP that appeared every day or so which started in 2005 and only ended RECENTLY in 2009. Hell, there were STILL stupid xbots claiming MGS4 would come to 360 before E3 2009. Today, it is clear that the roles have reversed. Let us not kid ourselves. Even a blind man can see the 360 has been taken a beating almost every week. Ahhhh its good to be a PS3 owner. Because now is the payback time. We warned you bots to back the fk off 3 years ago. We repeated it two years ago. We said it last year. But did you idiots LISTEN? No, you just kept trolling and your efforts became worse and worst. Hahaha this gen is going to be classic OWNAGE. And its just going to get worse and worst for the shiatbox. Just like I said 2 years ago. When the games start popping and PS3 is flexing its muscles, the 360 is going to be begging on its knees. Its going to be massively embarassing bots. Its just going to get worse and worst for you hahaha. But Im loving it EVERYDAY. One ownage a day keeps the good doctor away. HAHAHA
Unfortunately, not obvious enough. One of the main complaints I still hear from people in game shops about PS3 is the "lost exclusives". It's from media outlets blowing ff13 and gta4 out of the water, when neither was ever really expected to be exclusive first. All Microsoft did, as in the case with DMC4, was delay the announcement of the game on their console until well after Sony announced their version, giving the mental image of lost exclusivity. Sony on the other hand beat them at their own game, by requiring developers who are porting 360 games to PS3 to give the PS3 version exclusive content.
the biggest hit is that 360 still maintains mostly timed exclusives. A lot of the PS3 stolen exclusives are either huge established franchises (such as final fantasy and metal gear) or are released simultaneously. Many of the exclusives on the 360 later picked up on the PS3 are still timed exclusives for a year or so before they are released. Some of them are better after a year of development, but it's still essentially a game you could have been playing a year ago on the 360.
Yeah frosty... people seem to ignore, that the 360 lost MANY more exclusives in one generation than the PS did over 2, coming from the PS2 going to the PS3.
how the hell did he get the 0.1 comment???
It's such a dumb list they use. Half of those 'exclusives'(PS and 360) were never even called exclusives, they just came out at a time there was only one platform. Lost Planet, Condemned, Oblivion, Dead Rising, they were never 360 exclusives per say, they just came out when there was no alternative platform and the company didn't wanna port them a year+ later. Same with things like Metal Gear, Final Fantasy, GTA. MGS2, FFX, GTA3 all came out when Sony's PS2 was the only platform. Hell, the GTA games and MGS2 were even available later on in the XBox's life.
It's a multi account glitch.
Ithink it's when someone who posted before him, he replied to, and the first post got removed completely or it's a glitch
How many exlusives have Xbox 360 lost? Bioshock and Mass Effect have never been exlusives only timed and timed doesnt cut it.
I remember about 2 years ago Sony put out a statement saying that 3rd party exclusives are a thing of the past and they would much rather put effort into their own game development. People laughed and Kotaku probably did some lame article describing how this is damage control for games going multiplatform. 2 years later and here we are. I find it funny that some people/corporations are able to see the future at a different angle the ones falling into the "here and now" idealism of how things should work. It kinda reminds of the time Microsoft said their was no need for HDMI but that's another story!
Too bad the exclusive lists didn't take into account those that are on PC as well. It would be interesting to known just how many games are truely "Exclusive".
outcome at all all the articles over the past year and half made it out that the 360 took all the games away
360 has no games too call its own.....Its either on PC with superior visuals or PS3 with more content and better graphics. Thank you beta bots for beta testing NG2 Sigma, TOV and SO4 making sure PS3 version is better.
Devil May Cry Grand Theft Auto Final Fantasy Tekken And Metal Gear All of these are MASSIVE franchises and the fact they went multiplatform was a huge blow to Sony, if they had all remained exclusive each and everyone of them would have been system sellers and would have guaranteed Sony victory this generation. Sure the 360 has lost 1 more exclusive than the PS3 but if you ask me the franchises i mentioned above are far bigger than all the lost 360 exclusives times 10.
360 lost the most exclusives.
Really have to look at the differences between a console losing an exclusive as that title going multiplatform, and that title going to the other platform with added content. As for the titles you mention the only one even worth mentioning is GTA4. The 360 can claim FF and MGS but the truth is FFXIII isn't going to be a blip on the 360 vs PS3, and as much bit*hing and moaning that's gone on, the 360 still hasn't gotten MGS4 or something set in the main storyline. Nevermind that the sale difference was nothing. That's including GTA4.
None of them were actually Sony exclusives. Devil May Cry 3 was also on PC. GTA debuted on PC, then gone to Playstation, then Playstation and PC. Final Fantasy started on NES, then SNES, Playstation, GBA, PS2 and PC. Tekken was an arcade game, then was ported on Playstation, then had an episode on GBA, PS2 and PSP. Metal Gear began on MSX, NES and Commodore, then it gone on Playstation, Gamecube, GameBoy, Xbox, PC, PSP and even iPhone. So we can't really say Sony lost exclusive series as they never was exclusive.
Metal Gear and GTA were also on the original Xbox.
Grand Theft Auto - Started off as a PC franchise. Appeared on both PS2 and Xbox last gen. Bzzzt!!! Metal Gear - Microsoft actually had a real Metal Gear solid for the Xbox. Kojima and Konami really screwed them this gen. Microsoft completely failed to get MGS4 after so desperately trying. Instead they ended up with some silly 'action spinoff' that is nothing more than a Devil May Cry game with a Raiden skin. Even more humiliating is the fact that Kojima and his team isn't working on the spinoff and disonwed the game right there at E3. Bzzzttt!!! Even worse for Microsoft is the fact that they lost the biggest third party developer in the world, Rockstar North to Sony. The biggest third party exclusive Agent is Sony's. What a fiasco for Microsoft. After 8 years in the console market they are actually getting worse third party support this gen compared to last.
Also, Chuckles, it's funny how your opinion of games changes given what system it's on. MGS a MASSIVE franchise? Not according to you: "MGS4 isnt a system seller period the only reason the PS3 saw a boost in the US is cause people wanted the 80GB system, the game was just a bonus. Its a game for the hardcore only and thoses people got a PS3 at launch" http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...
You just lost the last ounce of credibility on the game industry. Did you even own an xbox 1? Is 360 your 1st console? LOL
Omega is basically admitting that former PS3 exclusives are superior than the former 360 ones.
NOW MGS is big again? Before it was just an overhyped movie. Man I love this site. =)
[Omega walks in story, looks around, then falls down 5 floors of stairs]
"NOW MGS is big again? Before it was just an overhyped movie." Hahahaha see its the same situation as the NGS2 thread... double standards always makes me laugh out loud... well spotted =) +1
Lost Planet Bioshock Dead Rising. NG2. ES. TOV. etc etc. MS didn't have much to loose in the first place because they didn't have much.
"Even worse for Microsoft is the fact that they lost the biggest third party developer in the world, Rockstar North to Sony. The biggest third party exclusive Agent is Sony's." WTF? MS didn't lose Rockstar North to Sony? Did Sony buy them? What a stupid thing to say.. And yes, I do believe Agent will be on the 360 and it's just going to be a timed exclusive at best.
The only franchise that was truly stolen there was Final Fantasy. All the rest were just waiting. The one's taking by MS I mean.
"And yes, I do believe Agent will be on the 360 and it's just going to be a timed exclusive at best." LOL!
You also believe in the Tooth Fairy?
If it's only on one game console it's exclusive to that console.
getting something like DMC, metal gear solid, or Final fantasy is worth more then 6 or 7 no name exclusives. IN MY OPINION. also 2 of those games on the 360 list were never exclusive, they were released before the ps3 was launched. However MS seems to be duping people into thinking timed exclusives like bioshock(?), eternal sonata, stare-ocean etc are 'exclusives' which to me is a very underhanded tactic.
This has as much value as Steve Jobs saying that what makes the iPhone a better game system than the PSP and DS is the 20K plus titles on it. Its quality not quantity people.
Fact 1: 360 lost more exclusives Fact 2. PS3 owners got to play the games (Omega)mentioned anyway My question is. Since they mentioned "current gen sequels" Why no Katamari Forever on the list? Why no VAMPIRE RAIN!!!!? lol!
Doesnt matter who lost more exclusives... As long as you enjoy the damn games
I can't enjoy games like Mass Effect because it's also available on PC.
Answer: Microsoft They paid a lot of developers just to let SONY know that "YEAH, we are the first to get this game!!!". But in the end, its a time exclusive and will be ported to PS3 eventually. MS even waste money marketing those games. Who's the winner: PS3 owners PS3 version will have additional content, fix bugs, one disc, better version of the game, etc etc etc.
loose or gain, system that have more exclusive win.
360 has lost the most. There is no PS3 game the 360 has stolen. All the franchises that your speaking about are PS2 ( third party ) and weren't really exclusive to begin with.
Now that 3rd party is level the 360 just looks like "that HAL0 console". Its sad that the 360 is defined by one game.
by that logic, neither has MS.
Funny. How the XB2 list includes future games, but the PS3 dont? Also some japan exclusives games arent mentioned in the PS3 list. p.s. Lost Planet: Colonies is not an XB2 exclusive. Its a repackaged Lost Planet game. Otherwise add Ninja Gaiden Sigma series, TOV, Eternal Sonata and Star Ocean 4 as exclusive for having extra content as well.
Devil May Cry Grand Theft Auto - never a sony exclusive so not really lost Final Fantasy Tekken Armored Core Katamari Bioshock - Not a 360 exclusive to begin with Lost Planet Saint's Row Oblivion - Not a 360 exclusive to begin with Dead Rising 2 Tales of Vesperia Star Ocean: The Last Hope - surely this counts as a lost PS exclusive? as it is now multiplat? Eternal Sonata Ninja Gaiden Ninja Gaiden 2 this list isnt really well thought out Also mass effect isnt 360 exclusive
I love the image of the Article, the PS3 is too big for the crapbox to handle... just like reality
They are using symbolism to say that the ps3 is crushing the xbox 360. Who knows what they are trying to convey with that photo.
it could be that too lol, reality sucks isn`t it xbots?
;__; poor PS3 is goin to burn up there
One that isn't named after a certain sony console. Ya know call it a hunch but I think that site may be a little biased/sarcasm. But honestly the writer doesn't touch on the fact that many of the exclusives mentioned for the 360 weren't true exclusives they were made on the system first because it was the only hd system out when development started capcom stated this with lost planet and dead rising namco bandai stated this with tales of vesperia etc. The only true exclusive that microsoft lost was ninja gaiden 2 and that was after itagaki left tecmo. Meanwhile sony lost true exclusives like devil may cry, final fantasy, virtua fighter, resident evil, grand theft auto, tekken etc that were made with the playstation 3 solely in mind and were originally planned to only appear on that platform but due to different reasons the titles appeared and are appearing on the xbox 360 at the same time.
CALL OF JUAREZ JUST CAUSE BRAID
Cross Edge shouldn't be in the list. It remains PS3 exclusive to this day since Cross Edge Dash was cancelled.
but MS has lost exclusive at a record fast pace. It took them years to get FF and DMC on the x360 but it only took the PS3 2 years to get most of those former x360 exclusives on the PS. MS is stupid to invest too much in 3rd party.
Now that's what I call bias. Yeah, Star Ocean and Tales of... 2 huge franchise immediatly associated with the xbox, like GTA and FF were with the PS brand... or maybe not...after all, Tales of and Star Ocean were anything but Xbox licence before this gen, so getting a temp exclusivity instead of nothing, yeah, that's a huge blow for MS. And counting games that were released even before the PS3 existed as lost exclusives is lame...I mean, if dead rising, oblivion, or saint's row are exclusive, then NFS, Call of Duty, PES, and FIfa, etc, are too.... And where is Resident Evil on his list ?
"And counting games that were released even before the PS3 existed as lost exclusives is lame" Why were they counted? Because Microsoft claimed many of them to be exclusive, and that exclusivity was lost (see attached pic... notice that "only on xbox" logo?). That proves that MS never knew it was coming to PS3 to begin with. Look at Unreal Tournament 3, it's box shot doesn't say "Only on PS3", even though Sony had timed exclusivity of it. It doesn't say that because Sony knew it wasn't going to be exclusive to begin with, therefore it was not a "lost" exclusive. As for RE, that was not exclusive to PlayStation even last gen. If you recall, for a good while it was a timed exclusive for the Gamecube last gen.
3sh*tty haahaaa sorry xbots the sooner u realize it the sooner u can go and get ur PS3
Oh look! All these 360/PC games are now back to being 360 exclusives because it supports your argument.. Whatever way the wind blows eh!
GTA and Final fantasy were never Playstation exclusive franchises.. :|
GTA started on PC ( MS ) and FF on Nintedo...
on the PS3 list u forgot Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time and yea 360 lost more exclusives
From the Webster Dictionary Main Entry: 1ex·clu·sive Pronunciation: \iks-ˈklü-siv, -ziv\ Function: adjective 1 a : excluding or having power to exclude b : limiting or limited to possession, control, or use by a single individual or group 2 a : excluding others from participation b : snobbishly aloof 3 a : accepting or soliciting only a socially restricted patronage (as of the upper class) b : stylish, fashionable c : restricted in distribution, use, or appeal because of expense 4 a : single, sole <exclusive jurisdiction> b : whole, undivided <his exclusive attention> — ex·clu·sive·ly adverb — ex·clu·sive·nes s noun - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Difference of exclusive games this generation and last generation. PS2 and XBOX era: Majority of AAA games in the PS3 are exclusive. Only a few are being ported to the XBOX 360 after 1 year of release. PS3 and XBOX 360 era: A few of well known AAA PS3 games was released to XBOX 360 first. Also majority of AAA PS3 games become multiplatform and with a simulataneous release. But almost all XBOX 360 EXCLUSIVE was ported in the PS3 and also available in PC. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - FYI, majority of these developers who denied their EXCLUSIVE GAMES won't make it to the PS3 system become multiplat. Also these EXCLUSIVE GAMES who initially was planned to be release as a multiplatform in the first place, and become EXCLUSIVE to XBOX 360 was announced in less than 1 year? (What the F**K). This only happened in the XBOX 360 era, not in the PS2 or PS3 era! So it has been a TIME-EXCLUSIVE all along, but these developers keep denying that they don't have any intention to port their EXCLUSIVE games in the PS3. (Money Talks!) And there still a bunch 3rd party games that are still exclusive to the Playstation Family. - Suikoden Series - Yakuza Series - Metal Gear Solid 4 - Persona Series - Dragon Quest Series to name a few ... Bottom line is, the games that XBOX owners totally thought will never be ported in the PS3 become a reality (Blame MS for false advertisement). While PS3 owner has the confidence to say that their remaining EXCLUSIVE is still intact and remained available only to the PS family.
/facepalm MS PWNS SONY at being theif =D Only way to retain an excluside is to 1st party is or make it using hardware advantage (imagine KZ2 on 360...hello RROD)
Does losing an exclusive actually matter to game players? I mean if it is multiplatform, you canstill buy it & play it. I can see that it matters to the hardware makers, but to the players? Why would it matter?
ofcourse its MS and why do people keep saying that GTA4 was exclusive when all 3 gta's were on the original xbox and the pc. freakin morons final fantasy yes that was a loss, but who cares its one game, and same with mgs, 1st one was on ps1, then CB, 2nd was on xbox and ps2 then mgs3 only ps2 and mgs 4 only ps3. devil may cry, o wow well i think its worse that MS lost the ninja gaiden series o but no one talks bout that. ms lost Ninja gaiden, lost planet, bioshock, eternal sonata, star ocean 4, overlord and a bunch of other games. its obvious who lost the most. and if i count PC multiplats that came from xbox, oooh crap lol
