Gamers Want Uncharted on Xbox 360 and an End to Exclusives

Gameplay Today explains why exclusives only hurt gamers and breaks down the walls that separate those who own only one system by showing that it all boils down to us loving games, not systems. (Gears of War 2, Halo 3, PS3, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Wii, Xbox 360)

Well said, console exclusives are a great way of pushing a single console to its limits not like multiplats, ofc a few exceptions exist like Crysis 2 and from the look of it Rage.

Im not going to sit here and argue with fanboys. PS3 exclusives are great, but dont start with the "multiplatform games are water downed" bullshit. I only own a ps3 and although MGS4 is the best game i have ever played. Some of my other all time favourites include Red Dead Redemption, Fallout 3 and Call of Duty 4. All of those games are NOT water downed products. Exclusives might have graphical edge but thats not what i look for in a game, its gameplay and GOOD gameplay is NOT exclusive to any console.

"Gamers Want Uncharted on Xbox 360 and an End to Exclusives"

That's news to me. I've never heard anyone I know say that. In fact, it's my first time seeing such a statement on the web. With the Gears 3 beta going on UC3 being on the 360 is the furthest thing from most people's mind who only have a 360. This is definitely someone elses fantasy and quite frankly sounds made up.
Acquiescence  +   1324d ago | Well said
That's right...
I wanted Uncharted 2, so I went out and got myself a PS3, regardless of the fact that I already had a 360 for two years. Killer-apps for consoles exist, and if the guy who wrote this article doesn't realize that then his gaming hobby sucks/suffers all the more for it.
blackbeld  +   1324d ago
Exclusives is what we need today. Multiplat games makes you own a specific console for what?

Without competition then there would be only same games from EA!! No please no!
heroicjanitor  +   1324d ago
@Washington-Capitals

That might be true but Uncharted actually requires a hard-drive, so 360 can't even have it watered down without some 360 owners being unable to play it, which would cause a fuss.
malamdra  +   1324d ago | Well said
ok, let's do it

but since the PS3 has a lot more exclusives, the easiest way is to bring the few exclusives the 360 has to the PS3 thus making it the only console

I'm sorry but ps3 multiplats are shit due to lazy developers. I'm so glad that's things are the way are. If u don't like it buy a ps3. simple as. I'm sure you'd ra ther pay out a bit more than play a ported version of uncharted.
DigitalAnalog  +   1324d ago
Exclusives can utilize ALL of it's resources on a single-platform. From a business perspective, it can really sell with potential given the right advertisement. Extra resources can be poured on graphics/bugs/QA without having to check on multiple platforms. Otherwise exclusives can simply be because the "other" platform refuses to publish it (like Haze).

DAS692  +   1324d ago
Also..
Exclusives are a great way for a game developer to concentrate on one system. Making multiplatform games isn't easy, and requires a much bigger team or a team with a lot of passion, because depending on how the game was made, they can't always "port" it over to the other systems. Not to mention that exclusives usually have a higher rate of quality... Like Uncharted 2, and Killzone 3.

@ Washington Capitals

Looking at your comment we can tell you really aren't qualified to speak on this subject because while yes there is the side of games being "all about fun" there is also a technical side involving hardware and software which overrides everything.

If multiplatforms arent' watered down, then why aren't your favorite games like MGS 4 and Read Dead on the Wii ?

YOu need to go out there and educate your self on technical aspects of videogames if you expect anyone to listen to you on a serious level.

It's a Sony game. It will never be multiplatform.

morganfell  +   1324d ago
@Pikajew

Then they should have made a better choice in the beginning and picked the console with the multiplats AND the best exclusives. They should have also examined the cost of the console over 4 years rather than utilizing the "what is cheap right now" method of purchasing.

When a console doesn't use last generation technology then that console might work as the sole console. Otherwise we are limiting developers. One console would mean competition among developers instead of among hardware manufacturers.

It is a fallacy that one console would prevent innovation. Sony was easily ahead last generation, not even looking back at the other two yet they continued to push the PS2 in software and hardware. The idea that a sole console would prevent or inhibit innovation is one of the biggest misconceptions and outright lies in the forecast of the gaming future.

Answer me this then:

Why are there no exclusive Blu-ray movies that only work on Sony players but not other brands?
Why are there no exclusive TV channels that only work on Sony TVs but not other brands?
Why are there no exclusive music albums that only work on Sony CD players but not other brands?

There is NO reason for gaming to be different.

Making exclusive games allows developers to take advantage of that particular piece of hardware. When they make a game multi-platform, it means they have to cater to the lowest common denominator when it comes to system specs. If one system can't do it, neither version will get to use that feature. Only in isolated cases will the developer take the time to code a feature for one system and not the other as well. That adds to the production budget for a feature that will only increase sales on a portion of the overall market the game is appealing to.

Uncharted wouldn't be Uncharted if it were not exclusive. It wouldn't be the game we know today. It would be a game built around the weaknesses of each system it is playable on.
madpuppy  +   1324d ago
It's not going to happen, there is no benefit to the console maker not to have exclusives.

Multiplatform games do not feel watered down. Many of the finest games of all time are multiplatform games.

Exclusives are not necessary in order for there to be competition, there is natural competition between every game ever made. They all compete for your dollars and your attention.

Consider the world of movies. We don't have to buy 5 different DVD players just to watch all the movies we love. Yet the diversity of different types of movies is even greater than that of videogames.

Someday there may be one standard in videogames and perhaps the only difference that might exist between different "platforms" will be the different services and peripheral features unique to those platforms.

Sadly, many fanboys want the practice of exclusives to continue so that they can continue bitching at each other. That, more than anything, is their motivation. They like this fanboy war crap.

Exclusives are good for the platform holders, but they aren't good for consumers. Getting slightly better optimization in some exclusives isn't a worthy trade off for the gamer. Getting to play any game that is made simply by owning one videogame device would be a much bigger benefit.

Next generation its going to get even worse. There will be more videogame platforms than ever before and the only way to play all the exclusives will be to spend ungodly amounts of money buying all the platforms. It's a bad state of affairs.

If there was no exclusives people would just buy the cheapest machine end of! You can bang on about features but people buy consoles for games first and foremost. The reason the 360 does better than the ps3 in some places is the price. It would be pointless having more than 1 console on the market if there was no exclusives. Though I would prefer a Sony/MS console that would be truly amazing and they could destroy Nintendo and make a fortune doing so. Imagine Playstation with Xbox live network and MS financial backing? It would take the world by storm.
TBM  +   1324d ago
The reason I buy consoles is for the exclusives as those games aren't on the other consoles. With that said the only reason I still own my 360 is for Gears, and the surprisingly awesome AW.

I am hoping beyond hope that Microsoft broaden its portfolio of 1st party from the traditional halo, fable, and forza. Please Microsoft create some different games in different genres.

As people have said exclusives show what each console is about and what they can do so I wouldn't want all games being shared on all consoles it would defeat the purpose of owning them. I would kill for Nintendo to start creating some new IPs besides releasing the same damn franchises year in, and year out.

I suppose the competition would then come down to who has made the best console, e.g how many GB the console has what sort of features are on the console, the cost of the console and what sort of features they are going to bring to the system. What social features they got on their console. etc

mastiffchild  +   1324d ago
SuicideShaun-I think you will find quite a lot of PS3 only gamers feel a similar way to Crystallis. It's mot that Halo is poor(it's great series) but it's certainly less of an everyman's game in the way Gears is because it's so synonymous witrh it's platform by this stage whereas Gears has only one gen of Xbox heritage. what ths has meant, in my experience, is the gamers who WANT and LOVE Halo have nearly, to a man, BOUGHT a 360 ALREADY purely for Halo3,ODST or Reach. Point being I doubt there's that many Halo fans left who don't own a 360 making those left on other consoles pretty unlikely to be massive Halo fans and , anyway, it's always been a love it or hate it type of game among me and my mates.

I like Halo, and the 360 just fine(just prefer my PS3 overall)but I DO think Halo's fanbase is firmly, already in the camp of owning a 360 making PS3 only gamers way more likely to envy Gears than Bungies creation at this point in time.

On fact my only personal issue with Halo is that I'd like the SP to feel as important as the MP does these days. Not a biggie and I can't moan about them going where I think more fans wanted them to and making the MP the most feature heavy thing out there. Gears, though, like Uncharted on the other console seems to be THAT game that people just like regardless of platform and therefore they will want it more in threads like this.

Exclusives are about defining the ethos of platform. Stuff like Super Mario defines Nintendo's goal for quality, polished, accessible content. Similarly, Sony's emphasis on games like Wipeout in the early days of PlayStation separated the PSone from the "cute, kiddy, toy" image that Nintendo and SEGA carved out for the industry in the 16-bit days.

Without exclusives, what would be the point in different consoles? You'd essentially own a set-top box. You wouldn't own a PlayStation or an XBOX, you'd own a "Sony Games Console" or a "Microsoft Games Console".

Exclusives carve out a personality for their respective consoles, and while it might sound ideal to have every game available on one system, in reality it's a very bad idea and I hope it never happens.

Buy a ps3 so, simple as that. Anyone who doesnt own all 3 consoles by now is missing out big time.

Im happy with just my DS PSP PS3 i dont need Xbox or Wii because im not interested in Gears or Halo
and Wii ...? LOL

I am a Sony fanatic but I do have an xbox and wii for the fantastic exclusives they have. More so the wii, that console has some awesome exclusives....mario kart, galaxy 1 and 2, sin and punishment, little king story and soo much more! Anyone who thinks the wii has "teh crap games" is a blatant fanboy.

Well, I don't know about that. I wouldn't say you're missing out on much if you don't own a Wii. You should own a 360 and PS3 though. Forget that 3rd console nonsense.

The Wii has plenty of great games to justify owning one. Anyone who can't see that is a blind fanboy.

I like Nintendo just fine. N64 may be my favorite console of all time. Plus I can't even fathom how many hours I've put into a DS/ Gameboy for Pokemon games. I just don't like the Wii. I wouldn't call myself a fanboy. I will gladly give the next console a shot.

I own all the consoles, always have. I think I prefer exclusives to remain exclusives however. It eliminates fanboys really.

Nothing is ever exclusive to me. However that being said I also feel like exclusives as being a reason to own one console over another is kind of a thing of the past. This year is the perfect example of that with Multiplatform games like Dragon Age 2, Rage, BulletStorm, Portal 2, Mortal Kombat, Marvel Vs Capcom 3, Batman Arkham City, Homefront, Battlefield 3, Crysis 2, Skyrim and a ton of other quality multiplatform games.

yea and what about the exclusives?.
Raven_Nomad  +   1324d ago
In all honesty there is never an abundance of them that I am actually interested in.

I like Gears and Halo, I like Uncharted and God Of War. It's not like if Microsoft or Sony or Nintendo has 100 exclusives each per year that I would like or buy all of them simply because they are exclusive.

I like a wide range of games, mostly games with a solid online aspect.

True, 90% of games are multip on consoles, on PC it's different case, but they really don't matter that much. Ofcourse Lost Odyssey is reason enough to get X0, or UC is to get PS3, but in the end, exclusives are fishes in the sea.

With all the games you listed, wouldn't owning one console be more fiscally responsible than owning more than one?

exclusives gives quality, its only way to keep it
Treyb3yond  +   1324d ago
I don't want no exclusive games, I want 360 to have it's own games so it gives me a reason to switch it in again!

No exclusives, no competition.

Not possible, too much use of the cell processors for uncharted to be on any other platform

Exclusives is what keeps us gamers excited especially when they are proven exclusives. Kinda like how I cant wait to see starhawk. Its going to be awesome.
Esena  +   1324d ago
Yeah, I don't know what this article is talking about... no exclusives means death to the industry. It isn't just this way, it is this way in all of business.
Acquiescence  +   1324d ago
F**k that noise...
It was due to exclusive titles that led me to purchase a PS3 two years after a 360, and it was the greatest gaming decision I had made in a long time. I wouldn't have Uncharted on anything else other than a Sony console.

"Gameplay Today explains why exclusives only hurt gamers and breaks down the walls that separate those who own only one system by showing that it all boils down to us loving games, not systems."

The irony of it all is THAT is how the gaming industry grew up to be in the first place.

The only major difference is that devs aren't using console powers to their full capabilities, and just focus on quantity instead of quality.
