Sony’s PlayStation 3 exclusive line-up for 2011 is over 20 games. The Xbox 360, however – apart from Gears of War 3 and Forza 4 – doesn’t have much to boast about.
But they have kinect
i wrote that title
@captain-obvious lol I get it. •Gears of War 3 (360's exclusive GOTY) •XCOM (also on PC) •Codename: Kingdoms – Kinect Enabled (we don't know much on this) •Star Wars – Kinect Enabled (Is this even confirmed for 2011?) •Forza 4 – Kinect Enabled (If you're into racing sims, just play GT5) •Project Draco – Kinect Enabled (never heard of it) •Codename D – Kinect Enabled (never heard of it) •Rise of Nightmares – Kinect Enabled (never heard of it) •Steel Battalion Heavy Armour – Kinect Enabled (never heard of it) •Haunt – Kinect Enabled (never heard of it)
And most of us have have a PS3 also, you know just in case :)
2011 PS3 core exclusive list little big planet 2 (1/18) killzone 3 (2/22) MLB The Show (3/8) yakuza 4 (3/15) PS Move Heroes (3/22) Motorstorm Apocalypse (4/12) Socom 4 (4/19) Infamous 2 (6/7) ICO/SOTC HD collection Journey Ratcher and Clank All For One Sorcery White Knight Chronicles 2 Ni No Kuni Resistance 3 (9/6) Uncharted 3 (11/1) The Last Guardian (holidays 2011) Twisted Metal (holidays 2011) (please note how I'm leaving out games like DC Universe Online, The Agency and Final Fantasy 14 because they're not exclusives because they have PC versions) 360 2011 core exclusive list Gears of War 3 (fall 2011) Forza 4 (in both lists the ones with no dates are TBA2011, but at some point they were announced for 2011)
if i see that list 1 more time..... try me @TheLastGuardian dude you snagged a beast username
@young juice Yeah, I've seen that exact same comment a few times on here but I never get tired of seeing that list. I just post this link instead. http://blog.us.playstation....
Codename: Kingdoms – Kinect Enabled (we don't know much on this) Is it? I didn't hear that. When did they announce that? (I also doubt it comes out in 2011)
So what is the sense of posting these flamebait articles again? (What a great site..)
@young juice The List is always on call when its needed
I got a disagree for asking when they announced that Codename: Kingdoms will have Kinect support? Weird. Why doesn't somebody just answer me, instead?
Codename: Kingdoms is not Kinect-enabled, if he can say that then i can say that the teaser was in-game. Forza 4 is not a kinect game, it has kinect minigames. this site made those "mistakes" just to get attention, of course N4PS3fanboys bought it.
Enough said: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
little big planet 2 - Not really interested killzone 3 - Got it! MLB The Show - Meh. baseball. yakuza 4 - Meh. Shemue is over. PS Move Heroes - looks awful. Motorstorm Apoc. - interested Socom 4 - footage looks kind of bad Infamous 2 - mildly interested ICO/SOTC - Meh, retreads. Journey -short artsy DL game Ratchet/Clank All41 -looks bad. Sorcery -meh. White Knight Chron 2 - didn't like first one. Ni No Kuni - Also on PSP/DS, DL game Resistance 3 - interested Uncharted 3 - interested The Last Guardian - slightly interested Twisted Metal - never liked TM So that's for games out of that that actually interest me. Meanwhile I have a LOT of multiplatform games that I'll probably get on 360. Portal 2, Skyrim, Bullstestorm, Crysis 2, Red Faction Armageddon, LA Noire, Rage, Duke Nukem Forver, Brink, Torchlight 2, etc. PS3 exclusives are more impressive than 360 exclusives but it's not going to influence my buying habits much.
@palaeomerus P - Dont really like the letter P a - kind of cool use it a a lot l - meh a - here it is again getting sick of it e - LAME! o - terrible m - i like writing it e - starting to like it r - awesome u - interesting s - LOTY
U mad? Anyway, I don't understand what core exclusive list means. People keep complaining that Microsoft uses only 3 games to keep the 360 going, and when they announce new games they're not core titles, even though people are putting downloadable games and titles never mentioned before into a list for the PS3 to make it grow. Somehow, that isn't the same. No matter how many games Microsoft releases, you guys are still going to try and find a loophole and complain. "Oh... well this game has partial Kinect support. It's not a real game. I cant wait for Sorcery, though.
@captain-obvious Thanks Captain Obvious! :D
Sony has Move ! But they don't pound there chest as it begin a reason to own a PS3 , MS had to with a pathic line up like that
+bubbs It's because of my PS3 that I'm going to start building me a PC rig so to all the PC snobs out there. :P
This article will spawn the usual, inevitable excuses. "Multiplatform games are alllll I need! That's EXACTLY why I invest in a game system, not for games that I can get on there, but games available on multiple systems (except on this one...I get to PAY MORE to play it online and get rip-off map packs a month early...Hooray!!)" "Microsoft will announce a bunch of games for Sept/Nov/Dec...even though their history doesn't support this claim (All of 2010's top 360 titles were announced 10 months or longer before release), I still say that they wait to announce games" "[Insert list of upcoming Kinect games] Who needs games? I'm just so proud of Microsoft, selling lots of things that don't benefit me" -- Microsoft is catering to a new crowd and if you don't demand more, you'll be left in the dust.
Microsoft: "2011 is going to be an incredible year for Xbox!!" Gamer: "Any new exclusive titles for the hardcore coming to compete with the neighbors such as Uncharted 3, Resistance 3 and the likes?" Microsoft: "Absolutely! We've got amazing titles coming from Kinect as well as titles like Star Wars Kinect that will absolutely blow your mind!" Gamer: "Other than the whole Kinect stuff, any new exclusives??" Microsoft:"We've got amazing upcoming titles such as Arkham Cit-" Gamer: "No." Microsoft:"Portal 2 will b-" Gamer: "No!" Microsoft:"Our games get exclusive DLC that comes out ahe-" Gamer: "NO!!.I said exclusives!" Microsoft: " Absolutely! 2011 is going to be an incredible year for Xbox!!" Gamer: "We're screwed."
I'd imagine Microsoft will pull something out of the hat at E3.
Yeah, thats pretty much what they do every year. @Stealth20k- Nothing? Didn't they announce Kinect last year? lol, I certainly wouldn't call an add-on that sold 8 million in its first 60 days "nothing"...but whatever floats ur boat.
they actually didnt do that last year at E3. In fact they basically had nothing...........6 kinect exclusives we havent even seen 1 screenshot yet. And while sony has been leading worldwide for the last 2 years, and japan/europe for along time just this month they lead in america too. They better do something. @ above yeah nothing that hasnt helped microsofts worldwide situation. If anything its made it worse. And kinect wasnt announced at E3........
last 2 E3's (i think) the only thing they pulled was this kinect and its games COD:BO and code name kingdoms a gimmick with it games a rehash game and a game that we know nothing about so i wont hold my breath if i was you
Yeah......Microsoft has all kinds of things hidden under their sleeves.........."cricket cricket"...."the sounds of a pigeon flapping wings amongst a quiet backdrop"..."the sounds of a few cockroach's scattering"......Oh wait, they're getting ready to announce one month exclusivity for the next CoD map pack!
Kinect a device that sold 8 million... if only I could play sales. Seriously how many gamers, the ones that play FPS's RPG's and Racing games are going 'I'm so glad I purchased my Kinect for... the slow menu navigation' Microsoft was supposed to pull something out at last years E3 and we got... yeah... if this year is like last year without Kinect then the 360 2011 will be looking poor. Infact this: http://www.youtube.com/watc... beats EVERYTHING else done at the Microsoft E3.
Alan Wake 2.... PLEASEEEEEEEE They dont even have to release it this year (cause theres a tight schedule anyway, and would just get as lower sales as before.) @disagreers Wow. You were obviously disappointed with the sequel. Had nothing else to play on while you waited, much?
Alan wake 2 would be great but they probably wont get much or any support by M$ because of alan wakes sales.
remedy are making the new xmen game, no alan wake 2, at least not this year.
OK don't you see what's going on here? Even if they pull something for E3, that's half the year gone by! While Sony will be on to releasing their fifth exclusive with Infamous2 coming out the day of E3. Don't get wrong, MS will have some big announcements but what about the whole year? Are they waiting until E3 because they haven't paid for their exclusives yet?
Hopefully it isn't as embarrassing as last year. "Stop it Skittles, that tickles!" -_-
I'm a big MS fan and I agree with you 100%.
Maybe they will pull a bunny out of their hat XD
MS doing somthing big at e3.. well how did it go in 2009 and 10?
Microsoft should have at least 1 new game at E3. Crytek's Kingdoms game will be shown. Halo: Combat Reevoved is coming. Halo HD pretty much on new engine and new gameplay mechanics. Basically testing 343's ability to make a Halo game. I believe two other games will appear. PGR 5 might show up. I believe they are going to attempt to make PGR 5 match up to GT 5. Alan Wake 2 is very possible. Other than that unless something is hidden in a magic place. All is left is Microsoft platform exclusives on PC/X360. That and well Kinect games. Ick. Everything else is multiplatform.
PGR 5 can't show up because Bizarre Studios has just recently been shutdown by Activision.
Forza 4 & Xcom, is what i'm looking forward to, the most & since i don't have a Kinect, rest of the stuff doesn't concern me. So yeah it is a bit dry.
"Xbox 360 Exclusives For 2011 Are Extremely Dry" Yeah, I wonder what Microsoft is planning. Hopefully they don't focus too much on Kinect enabled games.
But in all honesty, they'd be crazy NOT to focus a lot of effort on kinect and kinect games. That being said, offering no support for their long-time dedicated fanbase is a huge no-no. They could easily support kinect and deliver games for hardcore and casuals alike, but they are not, and that makes me sad.
"They could easily support kinect and deliver games for hardcore and casuals alike, but they are not, and that makes me sad." Yeah, I feel that Microsoft has the money to create great Kinect AND 360 console exclusives...heres the problem: Why would Microsoft invest money in creating exclusive 360 titles when the average 360 owner only buys 1 or 2 games a year(Call of Duty and Madden)?
It is what it is I’m afraid. Personally I have a shit-ton of games to catch up on from the last 2 to 3 years, so I’m not too concerned of the 360’s lack of exclusives for 2011. I am worried about the state of their first party stable of studios however. I understand their strategy of keeping costs down by having a small number of studios, and relying on third party developers to produce exclusives for them. But it seems to me that it’s a situation that Microsoft is not in control of. Already we have seen a partnership with Bioware dissolve because of EA buying the studio, the result being the loss of exclusive rights to Mass Effect. What guarantees are there that Epic wont go multiplatform with Gears of War for any future installments? Call of Duty could be dead in two to three years, what happens then? Halo cannot carry this platform on it’s own. My advise to Microsoft is to just tweak the balance a little bit back to first party development. One or two good-sized studios that focus on blockbuster titles so that franchises like Fable can sit on the shelf for a while. Alternatively they could just focus on owning the IP and continue with supporting third party studios. Just think what Ubisoft could do with an IP like Perfect Dark, or Twisted pixel with Banjo or Conker? Why not let Capcom or Team Ninja take a swing at Killer Instinct?
dry lol, and the earth is flat.
Can we talk after E3 pleease!
why? like 2009 and 10 they did not realy deliver anything .. so the status que after E3
shit Mr. Jounalist
What's with all the losers measuring their dicks and comparing whos exclusive library is bigger? Just play games FFS. (Ironic considering my username)
Did anyone read this? List a bunch of games, call it a day, and post in on N4G.
I sold my 360 two weeks ago because of the lack of Exclusives compared to my PS3 and Wii
Thats actually pretty stupid. its not like all good games are exclusive imo.
They said that Codename Kingdoms was kinect enabled, first off: no, second: they just made that up, they should do some research before writing stuff like that.
HAVE NO FEAR! KINECTACLUSIVES WILL SAVE THE YEAR!!!
Mind you I'm loving a lot of the PS3 exclusives this gen. 360 gamers will get along just fine, as they always have. People act like it has no games. It still has everything on the market, minus maybe 5 you can only play on playstation. Not a huge loss for these gamers. Basically, most gamers just don't care. Like, Mass Effect is no longer exclusive, but it's not like they don't get to play it.
end of story.
Haha, IM A FANBOY OF GOOD GAMES
what is the point of investing in the 360 and paying for Live when you can get all the games available on it this year on the PS3 and play them online for free? Yes there are a lot of multiplats but aren't they all on the PS3? Whats the point to the Xbox this year?
That's exactly why I only own a PS3 now. I agree with you completely, but 40 million others don't. They're not all wrong; they want what they want, and could care less about exclusives. That's all I'm trying to say here and it's remarkable people don't grasp this concept.
Who cares if they are also on the PS3? The 360 has a good comfortable controller, it's cheaper, and if you have kids it also does Kinect. The multiplats are typically the popular big sellers anyway. What's the supposed problem again?
This is all I'm hearing from the 360 fans: E3, wait until E3, wait until after E3. What'd Microsoft do during last year's E3? A friggin' laser show with elephants and those vests dentists put on you for Xrays along with a bribery of a free 360 to shut the complainers up. Before that? Kinect announcement, Shadow Complex, Forza 3, Halo Reach, and Splinter Cell. Bottom line - Microsoft has nothing to provide this year except for a Gears of War trailer/gameplay video, Forza 4 trailer/gameplay, and perhaps a Halo teaser. That's all it will ever be unless they can get some first party studios going. Gears, Halo, Forza, rinse and repeat. Know why the PS3 is releasing so many games this year? 21 studios. Microsoft, get some before Epic leaves you.
Why does everyone get all personal when anyone says that? How many years have we had to listen to 360 owners go on about exclusives and how we have no games. And that it looks like the tide is turning and all I hear is crying and excuses from 360 owners. Can't take your own medicine? @ xCaptainAmazing. So now that the 360 has less exclusives suddenly they don't matter anymore? Exclusives define the console you choose to buy. The PC does the games better and the Wii and PS3 have most of the exclusives. Without exclusives, why buy a 360? The 360 was an awful system too. It RRODed, was missing so many things that the PS3 had. The only thing that held the PS3 from being brought was it's price. It was worth it but most people couldn't see that. They were too busy going on about how cheap the 360 was. All I see is the usual 'change to suit' attitude 360 owners always have. If the 360 gets more exclusives next year we will get right back to hearing how exclusives matter the most from 360 owners
I'm a PS3 owner converted from 360 (Xbox owner since 2001), and you couldn't be more wrong. Be the bigger person. the taste "your own medicine" stuff is pathetic. Not to mention, when the PS3 released it was an AWFUL system (acknowledged by Sony themselves as being on "life support") to the point people were convinced it would be the next Dreamcast. The no games argument was never about exclusives, it was that PS3 literally had NO games worth playing. It had nothing, zilch. The argument against 360 is not equal, as it still has a shit ton of games. PS3 has become an amazing system, but not acknowledging its obvious problems in the past would be like pretending the 360 failure rate never existed. They both happened. You can't erase the past, and you can't condemn something forever based on its past. There are only a handful of people on this site even able to participate in this argument because they own, or have owned, both systems and have the proper perspective. I'm one of them; no fanboys allowed. EDIT: You really buy a system based off of exclusives? That's messed up. I buy one according to its feature set, third-party support, and which of my friends have it. In this regard both systems are an equally viable option.
whats your source for the "life support" from Sony.
http://www.joystiq.com/2008... This was Sony's CEO saying that the PS3 was on life support.
Thanks for finding it. It's not like it's a bad thing anyways, people are quite frankly complete pussies and way too sensitive about game consoles. They've all screwed up time and time again. It's what's made them who they are today. I'm glad I don't know most of these people in person because they clearly refuse to look at both sides of the coin and deserve a dildo slap to the face or much worse.
@ xCaptainAmazing I agree with your comment 100%. I can't stand the 3-year-old "But he did it first", excuse. By the way your avatar represents the game I am anticipating most this year. SS is my most anticipated game. I can't wait to see how they implement the Wii Motion Plus.
