PSN’s Awesome Autumn Exclusives Could Dominate XBL’s Summer of Arcade

PSNFans' Dan Crabtree explores Sony's strong response to Xbox Live's Summer of Arcade, which he dubs "Awesome Autumn." (inFAMOUS 2: Festival of Blood, Journey, Okabu, PAYDAY: The Heist, PixelJunk SideScroller, PS3, Sideway: New York, Sony)

I am really looking forward to Payday: The heist and Journey. The infamous 2 looks good but I will wait to see what the reviews are like. I do not want it to ruin my impressions of the infamous 2 ending

I'd love to be playing Journey as much as anybody. Easily one of my most anticipated PS3 titles..but it doesn't have a release date and I'm not trying to get my hopes up that it will release this year. Especially November when NOBODY but people looking for the title would even notice. But crossing my fingers just in case.

I think papo and yo is missing. anyways they are all excellent and some of them very innovative and creative titles but would have been better off released in the past 3 months than in the next 3 months when there is an onslaught of games i need to buy. maybe the reason is Sony does not want you to switch your consoles and just play on the ps3 the whole time lol. o well my day one games are resistance 3, uncharted 3, battlefield 3 on pc, mw3 and maybe rage depending on reviews. prolly buy assassins creed next year as i am kinda burnt out on that franchise.

Yeah, Sony has a ton of disc-based exclusives coming this fall as well.

Also, Papo & Yo, which I LOVED when I played it at E3, is slated for 2012.

Journey is all I need.
BrightFalls76  +   1126d ago
All opinion clearly. I think Journey looks great but outside of that Bastion and Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet have been two of my favorite games this summer period.

Psnfan site claiming its better than xbl? Hmmmmm, isnt this just like the msxboxworld articles we got on n4g talking about the ps3?
Ares90  +   1126d ago
it says "could", they are not assuring it
JellyJelly  +   1126d ago
Three of the titles mentioned are TBA. Xbox Live Arcade got Ms. Splosion Man, From Dust, Bastion, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, Fruit Ninja Kinect, Toy Soldiers: Cold War during more or less a MONTH. All getting more or less stellar reviews. And soon Crimson Alliance releases also.

Yeah, not really seeing the logic in this article. At best, thee "Awesome Autumn" exclusives would be just as good as Summer of Arcade. But dominate? Psh.

I don't get why people are so unwilling to admit when one console has an advantage over another. The PS3 currently has more decent-to-good full games, the 360 currently has more decent-to-good XBLA/PSN games.

I think the games are all fine but timing wise...just horrible on Sony's part.

i have a really hard time counting fruit ninja..
isnt that a popular cell phone game like angry birds?

other than that, i see your logic

I spend alot on money on downloaded games but i've noticed no one on my friends list does.
Rainstorm81  +   1126d ago
I notice the same on both XBL and PSN
KwietStorm  +   1126d ago
It's kinda annoying isn't it
JellyJelly  +   1126d ago
I play a lot of downloadable titles also. There's a ton of great games on both XBLA and PSN.
Dlacy13g  +   1126d ago
Quite a few great looking games...but launching these in Autumn? You know the time of year when all the major releases are coming out for the holidays? Sorry...but as good as these look I will be way to busy with the likes of Skyrim, Uncharted 3, BF3, Dues Ex:HR, and Rage to give any of these games the time of day in that time span.
Emilio_Estevez  +   1126d ago
That does look like an awesome autumn
Jack_DangerousIy  +   1126d ago
I think Payday will be the first downloadable game I buy. Unless you include the disappointing Vietnam expansion for BC2 that is.

I know how crazy some people are for Left4Dead. So it has my attention right now.

cant wait for the Infamous campaign!!!
ElementX  +   1126d ago
I'm glad I own both consoles. I can play all of the exclusive downloadable games
italianbreadman  +   1125d ago
I agree that the timing - Autumn - is a bit silly considering the stacked release schedule for retail games during the same time, but indeed, these games do appear to be solid releases for PSN.
