Top 5 Third Party PS3 Titles That the 360 Needs

NowGamer: All of these are Japanese in origin and mostly fairly niche, although no less excellent for it. This is because third party PS3 exclusives tend to be the result of Japanese publishers prioritising their domestic market where the PS3 is much more popular than the 360... ( Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Demon's Souls, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3, Valkyria Chronicles, Xbox 360)

I doubt many (if any) of the games will even run on the 360 anyway, im lookin at u 3D Dot
mrv321  +   1874d ago
I doubt they could fit on a single DVD... looking at you ALL OF THE GAMES ON LIST!

It might run on the xBox 360 if it's called -
'1D Dot Game Heroes' ;-D

Bots don't really want any of those games. They're happy with their Halo and other FPS games.
avengers1978  +   1874d ago
They do need games but I really don't think that they need these games, I don't think RPG's are really big on 360. Metal Gear would have been nice a year ago, but with MGR on the way I don't think they need to port this Guns of the Patriot(it was great though)

Eh, I have only played MGS4 and I wasn't a huge fan of that. I've heard that Demon Soul's and Valkyria Chronicles are good but the other two I am totally unaware of and have zero interest in. I'm sure 360 owners would like to have the opportunity to play them but I wouldn't say the 360 needs them.
The Time Reaper  +   1874d ago
Valkyria and Demon's are amazing. You should really check them out.
BeaArthur  +   1874d ago
I actually tried the Valkyria Chronicles demo but just couldn't get into it. I might check out Demon Soul's at some point but I already have a lot of things back logged and it would be awhile before I get on that.
Raf1k1  +   1874d ago
I tried the demo which was nothing special but I got the game anyway and trust me it's so much better.
Get it. You won't regret it.
C L O U D  +   1874d ago
The 360 doesn't need them, its just that the owners need to buy a PS3 and get out of their fanboy zone.
ThanatosDMC  +   1874d ago
Agreed. I never got the Stealth Camo though...
C L O U D  +   1874d ago
Me neither, 1 day i will after a few replays :'(

This further reaffirms that the PLAYSTATION®3's exclusives are the superior this generation.

Micro$oft Slaves first and foremost do not deserve such excellent games, which further explains why their console lacks true exclusives.

SCEE  +   1874d ago
Some of the best exclusives this gen, only on PLAYSTATION®3 sorry.
No Way  +   1874d ago
Exactly. And, the rest of the some
Is on the x360. Good point.

I already have all of those! Just need to pick up 3D Dot Game Heroes and my list will be complete! I want to stab my foes of blockiness with a Herring!
bjornbear  +   1874d ago
i think there are more than 5...
but sad not seeing LBP, U2 or KZ2 in there

fair list nonetheless =)
Fishy Fingers  +   1874d ago
They're not 3rd party titles. LBP was at the time but no longer.
Midnight-Rogue  +   1874d ago
Thing is that most of the PS3's big exclusives are first-party
so there's not much to look at here.
charlescox4  +   1874d ago
Besides MGS4 (which 360 is getting Rising), there's no real third-party titles worth putting on 360. MS passed on Heavenly Sword and everything else is first-party.
darkvenom  +   1874d ago
"Metal Gear Solid 4 was a nice looking game when released but now compared to games coming out this year it looks like a ps2 game."

Show me one game on the 360 that compares graphically to Mgs 4,I guarantee you won't find one!comparing a ps3 game to a ps2 game is just plain stupid,and fanboyish.
Ravage27  +   1874d ago
Demon's Souls
is one of those classics that appears once per gen and reminds everyone what gaming is all about. This is definitely a title that should NOT be missed by anyone. Period.

The game is so good that people literally DISAPPEAR for weeks to spend time with it. It is also one of those exceedingly rare games with the ability to pull back those who have lost all interest in gaming.

Demon's Souls is a Sony IP though, 360-only owners can forget about ever playing it, it's just not happening.
thelastawakening  +   1874d ago
ya man Demons Souls really reminds me of a modern day castlevania symphony of the night,,, all those unique weapons and equipment and spell to colloect ....man i hope there are capes in the sequel and a better online matching , maybe an ending game coliseum or battle type area that lost souls can go to to wager souls, soul levels and equipment with one another after you's done everything that you can do . maybe introduce water and relics that enhance user abilities for puzzle solving .... one last thing I wish they would fix is BP placement, I wish it randomly places u in different parts of the lvl.. oh and one more thing lol wouldn't be awesome if you can challenging ppl in the actually boss areas 1v1 mono e mono no health penalties man i can go on and on..................

Good list and I would gladly take any of those on the 360.

Luckily I have a PS3 so I can have them all.

Harry190  +   1874d ago
Would just like to point out
that Demon's Soul is co-developed by SCEJ.
MikeTyson  +   1874d ago
360 will never get MGS4. And doesn't MGO use the PS3 Internet Browser in use with your character? Yes.

I own a 360 & PS3 so I get the best of both worlds :)
MikeTyson  +   1874d ago
Then again, I said this about MGS2. A year or 2 later MGS2 Substance comes out on the xbox!

The Demo to VC does not do full game justice.

I agree. Valkyria Chronicles is one of the best and most beloved ps3 game this gen. The full game is incredible.

Denethor_II  +   1874d ago
@ at alphamale aka "The passive aggressive fanboy". I agree with you that PS3 exclusives with great graphics are possible on the 360 and you obviously love your 360, but just not of the same high standards that Sony has set the benchmark for. FF13 being the definitive example.
I'm starting to wonder why you have always got a chip on your shoulder when it comes to outstanding visuals.

PS. please don't brand me ignorant.

Figboy  +   1874d ago
that's a solid list,
but honestly, i prefer my consoles to have a DIVERSE, and DISTINCT library of games.

i own an Xbox 360 and a Playstation 3. WHY would i want both consoles to have the exact same games?

i got a 360 so i could play Fable, Mass Effect, Crackdown, Alan Wake, etc, and all the other good games EXCLUSIVE to the system.

i got a PS3 so i could play God of War, Uncharted, Ratchet, MGS4, and all the other good games EXCLUSIVE to the system.

i can understand that if you only own one system, you'd like to be able to get ALL the games on that one system.

but at this stage in the game, there really is not much reason to NOT have a PS3/360 combo. both combos are reasonably priced, and with a little penny pinching and saving, you could buy whichever system you are lacking.

i have my issues with Microsoft as a company, but who i DON'T have issues with are quality developers like Bioware, Remedy, and Lionhead, so i'll support their games on WHATEVER system they happen to be developing on.

i'm not going to take out my dislike of MS on the quality game developers that work for them.

i'm a Playstation fan, sure, but i'm also a fan of GAMES.

the SNES and Genesis had very distinct gaming libraries. there were always the multi-plats (NBA Jam, Mortal Kombat, etc), but their exclusive lineups were rock solid as well, and there was a reason to own BOTH the SNES and Genesis.

same applies to the PS3/360 (i'm simply not a fan of the Wii. sorry Nintendo, but this is the first generation that i've not been into your console. i've supported you for 25+ years, since the NES, but not this time. maybe next console; although, Metroid: Other M is making the Samus fanboy in me REALLY re-consider picking up a Wii).

it'd be nice for those PS3 games to head to the 360, just like it'd be nice for 360 games like Mass Effect and Splinter Cell to head to the PS3, but i personally DON'T want that.

i mean, if i could get every game on just one console, why even BOTHER with owning the other one? if i could get Fable, Mass Effect, Crackdown, and Alan Wake on the PS3, i'd sell my 360 RIGHT NOW.

thankfully, i CAN'T, so i keep it around.

considering that it seems like 99% of 3rd party developers have gone multi-platform, you'd be satisfied with both console's libraries to the point that you don't NEED to "steal" titles from the "other guy."

i'll keep my console defining exclusives on the platforms that they belong thank you.
Denethor_II  +   1874d ago
I still play my SNES when I want a Nintendo fix. Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario World, Zelda and the like.
Figboy  +   1874d ago
same here.
to me, Super Nintendo is, hands down, the BEST Nintendo console they have EVER created. i enjoyed my Gamecube, but the NES and SNES were simply incredible consoles, and the library of the SNES was unparalleled.

i still have my SNES, but i usually end up just playing my games on an emulator on either the PC or my PSP, simply because i don't feel like digging around in my closet and hooking up the SNES on my HDTV. lol.

for me being a long time Nintendo gamer, the Wii REALLY disappoints me, and that's a shame, considering that i owe being a gamer in the first place to Nintendo.

i owe Sony for KEEPING me a gamer, however. the PS1 and PS2 are quite possibly two of the best gaming platforms of all time. definitely up there with the SNES and NES. of course, i consider my PS3 to be the best, simply because i have a fully functional one (PS2 BC), and can play all the PS1, PS2, and PS3 games on it.
eggbert  +   1874d ago
Why not just get
a gaming rig?

Seriously most of the games that come out for the consoles that are multi-platform are also on the PC. In addition to this, you get most xbox "exclusives" as well as some playstation "Exclusives".
Figboy  +   1874d ago
i tried to keep up with PC gaming,
but my budget just couldn't handle the constantly changing standards.

at least, with a console, i don't have to upgrade any components to enjoy the latest games. i remember i spent about $300 on a new graphics card for my old computer, only to have it not be able to play a single HD game (ie, Bioshock, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, etc), because it didn't have a particular shader. granted, this was quite a few years ago, but i assumed, at a $300 (USD) asking price, i'd be able to, at the least, run these games at moderate to high settings. turns out i was wrong. that $300 could have bought me about 5 HD GAMES for the PS3 and 360.

i spent the price of a console JUST for the video card alone, and STILL couldn't play the games i wanted to play. i had to use a workaround to play Bioshock, and it disabled quite a bit of the visual features of the game, so i just ended up getting the console version, which looked and played better than it looked on my PC rig at the time. that was when i decided i wasn't going to do any hardcore gaming on my computer anymore.

the cost to upgrade my current computer in order to play the latest games would be more than the cost of just buying the game for my PS3 or Xbox 360.

i also don't have my computer hooked up to my HDTV, and i like to play games on the 40" screen.

so far, i've enjoyed some quality gaming on my PS3/360, and i don't feel like i'm missing out on anything major that the PC has exclusively.

Metal Gear Solid4 would have to be stripped down of all that cinematic content to be on DVD for 360. Now that I think about it, it might actually be an enjoyable game if they did that, haha. Haaaated it. ;-)
ipe  +   1874d ago
Ds is first party and sony owns ip
btw.demon souls>every 360 rpg(and we all know me2 is tps action adventure not rpg)

DS from now on,is in same league with diablo,at least for me

best rpg this gen no question
Thudd  +   1874d ago
then its official, your an idiot.
Thudd  +   1874d ago
This list stunk
MGS4 - Loved it, but was more of a movie than a game
Disgea - Sucked, could have been done on a PS1, a whopping 78 on MC.
Valkeria Chronicles - I liked it, wouldnt call it a killer game though.
Demon Souls - Friggin snore fest, sold it.
3 Dot Game Heroes? Not even out yet, leave it to the SDF....

Bottom line: I will take my 360 over my PS3 any day of the week for multiplats. And comparing the PS3's RPG's to the 360's is pointless. Only an idiot would say otherwise, either that or a PS3 fanboy who doesn't own a 360.
N4BmpS  +   1874d ago
Well That's your personal opinion I won't half fault you but just because you have both systems doesn't mean your opinion is or should be above anyone else' I only have a PS3 but I've played a significant amount of 360 titles to make my own opinions(I'm not gonna share them at this moment). And comparing both systems RPG's isn't pointless as long as you played them you can do that; to me the PS3 was built for heavy RPG players, 360 was built with the heavy online gamer in mind. One more point, your reason for MGSIV was asinine to me(you shouldn't care but still)it was more like a movie? What do you not like movies? I grow tired of people saying "it was more of a movie" or "you watch it more than you play it" which, by the way isn't true.
UP  +   1874d ago
I agree. I am so tired of the "it is just a movie" excuse. The game was not a movie. It had long cutscenes but the game a ton of replay value, especially if you tried to go after all the symbols. and by getting the symbols you received new cool weapons and other things to mess around with. When I received the Boktai gun I played the entire game just with that gun. You also received FREE content for MGS 4 such as new camo that gave certain boosts to snake and ipod songs that gave boosts as well.
Theoneneo81  +   1874d ago
Give it up bots your never geting MGS 4 all you get is a dumbed down version of a spin off
GigaGaia  +   1874d ago
Funny how they say Disgaea 3 could be run on snes when the ps2 can't even run it. They missed the many articles where Nippon Ichi said the memory on the ps2 was too limited to run it.
earbus  +   1874d ago
The only jap game id play these days would be shenmue every other game they make feels dated but in high def.
