PS3's 2011 Exclusive Games Line-up One of Best in Video Game History, says Analyst

With PlayStation Move being a key focus for Sony during the last quarter of 2010, there weren't that many traditional titles for the hardcore to snatch up, except for Gran Turismo 5. In 2011, however, Sony is gearing up for a number of 'AAA' exclusives for its platform, which should make PS3 owners quite happy.

They got a lot of them, don't they? Too bad all of them seem to be follow ups to existing franchises and nothing new. I'll love Uncharted 3, I'm sure of it, but I'll still have wanted something new this year. Not a huge, huge fan of Killzone and how stiff it feels. Add to this it's a FPS, so I hate it even more. That brings me to Resistance 3, which has everything going against it already. Infamous 2 might be fun for a play thru, liked the 1st even though it was riddled with short comings -- But really what else is there that's new? Nothing.

Yes, people are going to hate me, disagree with me and probably say I'm an xbox fanboy or whatever -- But the truth is the truth, regardless of how you wanna defend your console of choice. I have the benefit of not being a real gamer. I see things much more clearly than a die hard gamer does.

edit for I find it funny

Yes, they do. I won't argue that fact. Sony owns more developers, more quality developers, than any studio does. Too bad they don't make more learning games for you.

I_find_it_funny2697d ago

Sony got so many franchises, you can't help it

redwolf2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

@ bait
you got to admit they got variation to there line -up,
both in high quality and quantity
from journey,Lbp2, , DCLO, Motorstorm, MLB 11: The Show, Twisted Metal, Sorcery, or Trinity: Souls of Zillm, Yahuza 4,Team ICO Collection, WKC 2, Rachet all 4 one, Ape Escape, Hyperdimension Neptunia, Playstation Move heroes,FF veruses13, PixelJunk Shooter 2, Nino Kuni, Disgaea 4, the last guradian...

many more to think of which represents the best of almost all generes in gaming

AAACE52697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

My Ps3 will be getting a lot of use this year... as well as a lot of others I suspect! Either way you look at it... hell of a line up this year and my primary focus will be Uncharted 3!

Persistantthug2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

It's the fact that you find so much fault in the PS3 library of 2011 games, which is like 20 or so exclusives,

But you find nothing to say about XBOX 360's 2011 games, with is practically nonexistent. As if all those Kinect games are totally right up your alley.

You know what that's called Mr. Balt?
That's called extreme bias and hypocrisy.

Enjoy your Bieber box I guess.

UCMEandICU2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

"oh gee look, it's only sequels no new IP" lol

Off the top of my head there are 4 new IPs coming exclusive to the PS3 this year and even more if you include PSN titles.

When the haters were trying to kill off as many new IPs back in 2007, and even still till today, you all didn't care Sony was investing in bringing new stuff to gamers. You just wanted the games to die and praised funding big money for timed exclusive DLC

So now Sony is building off the success of these new IPs with sequels and that's supposed to be "meh" yet, the 360 has been starved for exclusive new IPs with only kinetic gaming carrying the load for next year and the haters turn their blind eye cause it just hurts too much to face the truth.

Crazy how Sony has to totally ellipse the 360 library of games with arguably the best lineup in history for it to be seen as having "a slight edge"

Damn, the crap Sony and the PS fans have to go through this gen is monstrously insane.

rroded2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

sony just keeps upping the ante imo no way is anyone else raising the bar as high.

RageAgainstTheMShine2696d ago

Poor us PS3 gamers we only have exclusive games this year but no millions of sales figures to play with.
boo hoo!

Come on, don't be so negative!
Just because they're sequels doesn't mean they won't be original. The Last Guardian looks like the most original game set for 2011 (possibly 2012) and that's technically a sequel.
Besides, there's always something new out there. Like DC Universe coming this month. Or The Agency, or Sorcery, or Trinity: Souls of Zill, or PSN games like Under Siege and Journey!

And then there's the small possibility that we will see Agent or Exodyssey this year :)

You are not a real gamer, your a real smug idiot from what I can tell. What you should have said, and what is TRUE, is that everything you said is your OPINION. Everything you said is true, for you and yourself alone. My god I can't believe your arrogance with that statement. I also love how your 'not a real gamer' yet your sitting your ass down on NEWS 4 GAMERS .com telling a bunch of gamers that your opinion is more important and accurate than theirs, and they all need to shut up and listen to what you say. Well again I say to you, your wrong.

Would_You_Kindly2697d ago

xD Well said, I couldn't have put it better myself.

I am more then pleased with the line up for this year, both for exclusives and multi-plat games. And I have no problem with sequels; I happen to love seeing my favorite stories continued, often bigger, and better then before. I'm pretty sure all of the Halo/COD fans feel the same, haha. You look throughout time, and follow ups are plenty 'original' and popular enough, on ALL consoles. Examples, Final Fantasy, Castlevania, Super Mario, Metal Gear Solid, and COUNTLESS others. Oh, and on PC, I can't wait for Diablo 3.

Case in point, that post was epic fail. Oh, and sorry to say, but being LESS of a gamer doesn't in any way allow you to know MORE. Lawls.

RememberThe3572697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

Not according to himself.

From his own profile:
"I'm not a gamer and I don't "game" a lot of games. Games made today [are a] waste of time, energy and money. They are pointless."

I don't really understand why he even comes to this site if he doesn't seem to even like games today. There are a lot of other thing to do with your life then read about stuff you don't like.

CaliGamer2697d ago

@ Balt

For someone who is not a "real gamer" you sure spend a lot of time stating what you don't like about video games. As a matter of fact, looking at your post history, you are one of the most negative people on this site and seem to be extremely interested in what Sony is doing. More than half of your comments today alone are Sony related.

And to the last sentence you wrote, "Too bad they don't make more learning games for you." Sounds like you might be the one that needs a “learning game”. Your grammar is an assault on the English language and good sense.

Good Day! Lol.

gunnerforlife2697d ago

first time i agree with an analyst..!

divideby02697d ago

the only comment Balt said which I totally agree with...
" he is not a real gamer"...

learning games.... only one I have is Brain Acad. on my DS..
dont have any for my Wii or 360...

VenomProject2697d ago

What a weak-ass argument, how can anyone that calls himself a gamer not be excited for Sony's 2011 lineup?

Define innovative. What do you consider to be "new?" What are you looking for? The messiah of games?

You don't see anything "more clearly," I'd even go as far to say that you don't see things at all.

Hardcore gamer, or not - this year will be amazing for the REAL gamers.

OllieBoy2697d ago

Oh look, it's butthurt Balt. Still not banned yet I see.

Well...keep on trying.

ufo8mycat2697d ago

At least they are delivering quality games, unlike Microsoft or Nintendo

King-Leonidas2697d ago

of all the names you mentioned- all of them are new IPs, except Killzone

elitesupreme2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

"They got a lot of them, don't they? Too bad all of them seem to be follow ups to existing franchises and nothing new."


"Too bad they don't make more learning games for you."

You must be talking about yourself with your IMAGINARY console of choice there, cuz you sure as hell don't know a damn thing about videogames. New IP's are introduced, garner favorable sales/praise, funds the devs. for sequel, sequel sells same/better, funds another sequel, sequel sells same/better than previous sequel, meanwhile the devs. have already been contemplating new ideas for new IP's already.


Since you hate sequels, guess you hate improvements and good stories/plots that are ultimately better as a whole with all of the sequels.

Developers can't afford to introduce NEW IP's everytime. Besides, if all games WERE just NEW IP's, then I GUARANTEE that you'd have an overflow of shovelware.

Come to think of it, YOU'RE probably a Wii fan since that console is plagued with so many NEW IP's/shovelware, am-i-rite :)

Snake-eater2697d ago

well this looks to be sonys biggest push in gaming

RememberThe3572697d ago

They did delay a few from last year. So now this year is packed. I'm glad that they're all quality titles too. This year is going to be fun but it's going to take some creative use of my time to play all the games that are coming.

ForzaGT2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

Makes you a proud PS3 owners these days

Dragon_Hiko2697d ago

Actually, I've been proud of the ps3 since I bought it at launch for 600. It was an investment because I knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt in my mind (and I told all my friends this many times, but they never believed me) that regardless of anything else, Sony is going to bring massive amounts of amazing exclusive content, just like the did with the ps1, just like they did with the ps2. And also just like those two consoles, it takes years before they hit their strides.

MatthewMk22697d ago

I've always been a proud PS3 owner. And 360 and PC. Why stick with just one system?

ufo8mycat2697d ago

Because the other systems offer nothing much else. Gears hmmm hmmm hmmm yeah...

redwolf2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

Sony FTW !

jjmustoe2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

why disagree
What does FTW mean can someone tell me


MatthewMk22697d ago

Sequels! After this tear I hope Sony gets some new IPs. After the third game a series almost always goes down hill. The only series that I can think of that hasn't started to go stale after 3 games is Battlefield. Other Devs have to look at how EA and DICE reinvent the series every few games while still keeping what makes battlefield awesome there.

Tommykrem2697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

I think Sony has introduced the most new IPs the generation, but yeah it's time for a change. Many game series has kept the quality up way longer than three titles though.
Metal Gear, Final Fantasy, Halo, Call of Duty, Gran Turismo, Ridge Racer, WipEout, Twisted Metal, Ratchet and Clank, Elder Scrolls (assuming that 5 will be awesome), Street Fighter, Mario (main series, anyway), Zelda, and the list continues...

But yeah, new IPs are always good.

MatthewMk22697d ago

Yes I guess you're right. What I was thinking with Battlefield was how DICE almost completely changes the series every few sequels but still keeps the core gameplay, large scale vehicular warfare, intact. They're not afraid to experiment with the series, while all those games you mentioned just build upon what came before, were as Battlefield completely builds itself from the ground up every few games. Not to mention BF Heroes, BF1943 and BF F2P. I'd love to see CoD or Halo try stuff like that.

RememberThe3572697d ago

I think your giving Battlefield a little too much credit. I have three Battlefield games and they seem pretty much the same. Thats not a bad thing because I like BF, but I haven't seen the reinventions you talk about.

Why would Sony have their devs put the time and money into new IPs instead of just improving what fans have shown they love. Look at how much Infamous has changed; LBP2 is still pretty much it's own genre; Uncharted 3 is looking like it will be in a class of it's own; From the beta feedback it seems the Killzone 3 is almost a different game from KZ2. IMO Sony's first party is doing a much better job than DICE at improving their games with each installment.

kneon2697d ago

I expect most of the new IPs will start showing up in 2012 with the PS4

OllieBoy2697d ago

They're sequels to IPs that Sony created THIS generation:

The Last Guardian
Heavy Rain
Demon's Souls

Combined with older IPs: God of War, Gran Turismo, Twisted Metal, WipEout, Warhawk, SOCOM, Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, Sly, Hot Shots, MLB...Sony has the best stable of first-party franchises.

By far.
