Which console really has the most exclusives in 2011?

Taking a look at the game industry from an exclusive standpoint we determine and evaluate this year's lineup for two of the most revered consoles to hit the market. Jokes aside, which one really has the most exclusives this year? (PS3, Xbox 360)

Does this really need to be answered? I think we all know already.
NukaCola  +   1604d ago
I like that they layed all the cards on the table. Sometimes people want to way the merit of an exclusive. They didn't care the game, just as long as it was only on that system, so for example (Mass Effect complete PS3 version, Bastion, or any DLC exclusitivity wasn't weighed in. They didn't even add Dead Space Extraction or Hous of the Dead since those are just HD version of current gen Wii games. Last gen remasters are included.)

Either which way the winner was...well we all know..

Yes. PS3 had more quantity of exclusives.

but it destroyed Xbox 360 in quality department as well. Besides Gears and Forza, rest of 360 exclusives are crap this year.

Do you really think 360 exclusives(not including gears and Forza) are top quality?

Of course it's the PS3 by a landslide.

2012 might end up being even more lopsided.
The only game I know that is coming out for the 360 next year that is exclusive for their core userbase is Halo 4.

This is what happens when you don't have studio support. You can count MS's support on one hand.

The only game I am looking forward to this year on the 360 is Forza 4.

Microsoft sure as hell better be thankful for Gears and Halo...and they better be working on a new IP or two to help carry the load.

First off, I have both consoles. So, I can care less who has the most exclusives. None the less, I just finished playing Radiant Silvergun on my Xbox 360. Second, I noticed Tomb Raider Trilogy. I've owned all Three Tomb Raiders for my Xbox 360 for years now.

On the flip side, I've purchased a ton of PSone games off the PSN. Most of them aren't available on XBLA. This is just a bunch of FanBoy crap. Most people don't have enough money to buy every exclusive anyway.

Using Metacritic:

Games (exclusive + multiplats) either with or above 85 points average only included (since it really is pointless to inflate your list with "garbage"):

All time:

PS3 119 games
X360 122 games

Games released after 01.01.2007 using same criteria:

PS3 118 games
X360 108 games

Games released after 01.01.2008 using same criteria:

PS3 105 games
X360 90 games

Games released after 01.01.2009 using same criteria:

PS3 82 games
X360 68 games

Games released after 01.01.2010 using same criteria:

PS3 50 games
X360 45 games

Games released after 01.01.2011 using same criteria:

PS3 16 games
X360 14 games

The same kind of rule applies if you make searches withy 80 and above points average. Only difference is in all time category with x360 having slighty more games than with 85 points.

I did this investigation to use as you wish.
Blogz4Fanboys  +   1603d ago
if you need hits for your shit web/blog-site, then you only need to write a quick blog about ps3/360.

it's so simple to leech hits from n4g.

even though this very same topic gets discussed day in day out,there is normally a blog about this every two or three days, and in nearly every 360 article there are numerous n4g faithfuls who say this. this shit is still almost a daily feature.

dont just disagree, be honest, is there anyone on here that needs to see these comparisons every other day????
NeloAnjelo  +   1603d ago
Some companies think paying for timed exclusives or exclusive DLC makes up for not releasing actual games! Its a lazy strategy and a kick in the face to those who bought the consoles.

Why are people having such a hard time saying PlayStation 3? It is not like it is a bad word or something horrible like that. Why is it so hard to just say it? What? You can't hardly believe it? Come on. Blurt it out and get it out of your system. It is okay to say PlayStation 3....

And @Blogz4Fanboys: Back in 2008 to 2009 Xbox extremists couldn't get enough of such articles like this that "hailed" the xbox for having so many exclusives. Fanboys even made youtube videos about it. So much for "PS3 has no games" huh? /F

Its amazing that we are actually comparing PS3 to Xbox 360 this generation. If this was last gen there would be no competition. PS2 ruled. The original Xbox didnt have a chance. Microsoft came a long way this generation with the xbox brand.

I do agree that the PS3 has more exclusives this year.

ps it helps to have more exclusives especially if they are varied like ps3 games, that way no-one goes without their gaming fix as we all have our different tastes, as for xboxers guess all they get is fps/tps/racer games for this year, lets not mention kinect games they are a abomination

Why do people care this much about exclusive games? I buy more multiplatform games than exclusives even though I own a ps3. If the amount of exclusives mattered that much why isn't the ps3 selling the most consoles. Do people always have to compare exclusives every year just so they can say "mines bigger than yours?"
Silly gameAr  +   1604d ago
You remember those lists comparing exclusives that constantly came out not to long ago when the "PS3 had no games"? The people who made those list cared. It seems like they don't care to much now in days.

So what you're implying that I'm an xbox fanboy? That makes a lot of sense since I just picked up Resistance 3 and have been loving it after being disappointed with R2's single player? I'm actually interested in video games as an industry as well as it being a hobby as mine and I'm just trying to say that why isn't the ps3 selling more than everything else if the amount of exclusives it has matters so much to people. I think it just matters to hardcore fanboys who have the "mine's bigger than yours," mentality and that's why xbox fanboys were like that as well.
tplarkin7  +   1604d ago
The exclusive content is weak for both consoles.
wooferine  +   1603d ago
Jared, the answer to your question about why the PS3's greater number of exclusives has not translated into superior sales I think lies in the fact that there are many factors that impact sales numbers other than the amount of exclusives.

For example, the price differential between the PS3 and Xbox 360 this generation has played a large role in why the PS3 hasn't outstripped the Xbox 360 in sales. The Xbox 360 also had a one year head start in sales.

Another factor may have been the quality of the initial PS3 games compared to their Xbox 360 counterparts. Progamming for the PS3 was more difficult for developers to learn, which resulted in game quality issues with the first round of PS3 games (the multi-platform ones -- and Lair). I'm sure there are more factors that could be listed.

In fact exclusives may well be driving sales but could be masked by other factors that are detracting from sales, e.g., the price differential I mentioned before.

Just food for thought.
Why o why  +   1603d ago

Exclusives are games. Extra games. Gamers like games, more games. It being exclusive can be used as a beating stick but they are extra games to play and from what i understand...we are gamers not accountants. Im in this for me and i like games more than sales figures as i get nothing from those sales figures. So heres a recap, the more games to chose from the better especially if many of them are varied in genre and of a good quality. You sound pissed people are actually celebrating something that actually matters more to gamers than sales....the hint is in the name 'gamers'.

showtimefolks  +   1604d ago
any true gamer already knows the answer to this
i don't want to make a list because than many will disagree and xbox360 fanboys will say they didn't care about half of those games.

or how each of them didn't sell 10 million plus.

heavy rain sold over 2 million to date. Alan wake didn't do half that why? both were great games. Here is why on playstation side of things gamers have more options to choose from games wise while with xbox360 its the same games over and over again. and Unless its halo,COD or gears xbox360 owners don't run to store to buy other xbox360 exclusives.

a game like ratchet does over a million but RARE'S LAST GAME NUTS AND BOLTS didn't do that well.

we can all beat around the bushes but no one will can touch sony's exclusives and i know i sound like a fanboy. I am not its just that after a slow start in 2006-2007 they have picked up the pace more than any other console maker
callahan09  +   1603d ago
The really sad thing about this list is that the first exclusive of 2011 for the 360 according to this list was released in SEPTEMBER. That's nearly an entire year with no exclusives? The PS3 already had 15 (more than the entire list for 360) before September.

Yeah, but it's not even about slowing down in a way; they have months of dry space, than cram a bunch of exclusives out of the door. I hate that because like for shooters, for example, would have been nice if they didn't put R3 and UC3 within a month of each other.

mcstorm  +   1603d ago
I agree it is about the life span but I dont think MS will drop the 360 like they did the Xbox because of how many consoles they they have sold and they can push it with Kinect as a cheaper console for the none core.

I like that sony support there consoles for 10 years but I can see both MS and sony supporting there current gen consoles for more than 10 years because of the way the industry is now and what both the PS3 and 360 offer in terms of none gaming.

That's the problem with your statement, MGS4;

Sony has both quality and quantity.

The only thing you can do is try to take as many 360 exclusives and then cut down the PS3 exclusives to the same number and then say "that's truly how many 'quality' PS3 exclusives there are" and then declare that they're equal.

See through you, I can.
Mgs4isOverrated  +   1604d ago
Actually, i'd go as far as to say that the quality from the two are NOT equal. One has very mediocre games that solely revolve around graphics. I dont want to say which one cus i'm afraid i'll offend some kids here.

In the end, it doesn't matter. The PC always has the best in quality and especially quantity.

The key question would really be which games are worth getting on each console.

TheLastGuardian  +   1604d ago
I have more than enough games to play owning just a PS3. If I bought a Wii and 360, that's just less PS3 games I could afford. So the way I see it, I'd be missing out on some great PS3 titles if I did own the other systems.
DigitalRaptor  +   1604d ago
This is true.

But I guess if you DO have enough money to support your gaming habits on all platforms, why not?
ShaunCameron  +   1604d ago
Not really. For those (like me) who own both a Wii and an XBox 360, most PS3 exclusive titles can be effectively cancelled out with their own exclusive titles. It's pretty much the ol' why-get-this-when-I-could-get- that. Why get Killzone when I could get Halo? Why get SOCOM and Uncharted when I could get Gears Of War? Why get Resistance when I could get Left 4 Dead? Why get ModNation Racers when I could get Mario Kart? Why get Ratchet & Clank Future when I could get Super Mario Galaxy? Why get Little Big Planet when I could get Donkey Kong Country Returns? Why get The Last Guardian when I could get The Legend Of Zelda?
clearelite  +   1604d ago
I agree, I don't even have enough time to play just the PS3 exclusives because there are so many. Eventually I intend to own and play almost all of them, but it's not practical at the moment. I like PS3 so much, I will probably have one around long after the PS4. I do wish Sony's presence was a bit larger here in the USA though. MS spends TONS on marketing here and Sony spends there money making games apparently.
Leviathan  +   1604d ago
Agreed. If you own all three like us, you can chose which games you want to buy and you don't have to settle for something similar. These people saying otherwise are just jealous. I'm a die hard ps3 fan (always have been) but why limit yourself if you don't have to? I loved Alan wake and heavy rain . I also like gears and uncharted and who can deny those awesome Nintendo exclusives? Nobody.
P_Bomb  +   1604d ago
By that logic though you could just keep on going until you cancel out gaming all together, 'n' where's the fun in that? It's like..."why play Forza or COD at all when I can just drive a real car and join the army?"

It's been 3 years since the last MarioKart. It's ok to make some tracks in ModNation in the meantime. MarioKart will always be there, as will DonkeyKong (which is about as similar to LBP as the proverbial apple to an orange). Heck, I'd still recommend 2010's Alan Wake and Mass Effect 2 in 2011 despite the PS3's exclusive lineup. If a game's worth checking out, it's worth checking out.
FredEffinChopin  +   1604d ago
That might be the worst attempt at logic I've seen this year. You don't seem to realize that the reasoning you're using contradicts itself. If they cancel out, then you can also say that you don't need a Wii or 360 to play all those games that are exclusive to PS3.

Back to the drawing board.
SilentNegotiator  +   1604d ago
Sure all of the systems have their own good games, but are you really going to play EVERY good game out there? I know I'm not. I have neither the time nor 100s of multiples of $50/60 to buy all of those games.

If I had the foresight I have today, I never would have bothered with two of the consoles. At the times I bought them, that was like $900 on hardware alone? Not counting ridiculous online fees, some passable games, batteries, etc.

" For those (like me) who own both a Wii and an XBox 360, most PS3 exclusive titles can be effectively cancelled out with their own exclusive titles."

what kind of question is that :D
iamnsuperman  +   1604d ago
And this is what is making me think a new Playstation is on the horizon. This year has been rammed with exclusives especially from there big developers. Now they go one to work on a new game for 2 or 3 years. I do not want it just yet but it is looking that way
GameScrub  +   1604d ago
What about arcade titles? Do those not count as games or is it just retail release only?
Elyxir-pSx  +   1604d ago
Do all PSN games count? how about all the ps1 and import games? all the mini games?
GameScrub  +   1604d ago
Sure add PSN games I don't care. They are still games and should be counted.

PS1 games doesn't seem to make sense though.

But thanks for answering a question with a question. Sure moved this argument along just nicely.

Yet, the PS3 is still not considered a viable GAMES console to a good number of gamers and gaming journalists....Hmmmmm!
clearelite  +   1604d ago
Yes, because they don't give these people enough presents, or spend tons of money on marketing, and instead spend money making top quality games and hardware.

Yet, in Japan the 360 isn't considered a viable games console to most Japanese gamers, retailers and publishers, even the PS2 did better than the 360 after 11 years on the market, and who gives a fuck about journalism, there are those that pretend to be journalists!!!!

360 can't use sesame street, but PS3 can use modnation racers and little big planet, they both go after the same age group.
KingSlayer  +   1604d ago
Not too many 5yr olds making levels in LBP or Modnation, so I disagree about the target audience. Sesame Street...c'mon man.
iamnsuperman  +   1604d ago
I agree with you KingSlayer. A five year old might play through the single player (still unlikely) but the whole game is basically based on user generated content. @Phibalnation just because it does have blood and gore doesn't mean the target age is lower. Sesame street is targeted at young parents with small children who watch sesame street

I find that comment hilarious because I am 23 and I enjoy playing LBP 1 and 2. As well as my other friends both in real life and on PSN. We are all above age 21. +1 if you are over 21 and play LBP.

I ask the moderators:
Why do you ban MEMBERS for 'trolling' yet allow blatant 'trolling' articles like this one? Its like not allowing pedophiles, but rapists are welcome. Its self-defeating. You allow these articles, clearly taking an unnecessary shot at Xbox, then will undoubtedly ban the trolls that follow...Where is your logic?

Anyway I have said this for months: I glance at these lists and frankly there are few 'exclusives' I care about on either console. The Playstation indeed has more exclusives (really? Another article proving this? Everyone pass Grade 2 math? Ok? Good.) But the question is how many of them twist the balls of non-playstation gamers? How many of those games make 360/pc gamers say "Omg, I want that game". For me, not that many. The way I see it is both consoles only have a HANDFUL of exclusives that are platform defining and make buyers at Christmas think twice. I guess some people just like to argue though. I keep picturing these fanboys in person--a bunch in a room. Arguing about this crap...its nauseating.

A QUESTION TO 360 fanboys and PS3 fanboys: What games, from the 'evil side' lol, make you jealous as gamers? Those of you that say "none" are deluded. If you honest with yourself, the truth is not that many. I have both consoles and a PC, so I don't "miss" any games. But when I ask myself, if I had only one console which of the competitions titles would I want most--there are not that many....
JOHN_DOH  +   1604d ago
I liked Yakuza 4 and Infamous 2 for the ps3
colonel179  +   1603d ago
The logic about which game is worth getting is flawed. You might like Gears of War 3 and may be the best game for you, but for other people Sesame Street is their thing. For them the game worth getting is Sesame Street, not Gears of War.

Everybody has their tastes, so you cannot undermine the games for their quality and/or worthiness since that is relative to the people who likes them. That is why having the quantity of exclusives for each console is a measurable unit to prove which console have the most options available for any type of gamer.

im now a ps3 only gamer and i can honestly say i miss nothing on the xbox. i had forza 3 and gears and thats pretty much all i cared about but i recently sold my xbox with 6 games including gears 1&2 and forza 3 to fund my ps3 games. I got white knight, preordered uncharted and got the bleach game. and there are more ps3 games that i want like no more heroes and disgaea 4......but there is nothing on the xbox that makes me jealous for real.....
The_Con-Sept  +   1603d ago
@ EdwardS087Me Deluded? No.

I say none as the answer to your question. Halo 1 was the best halo game ever made while 2 and 3 were just lolly-gagging story drags. Online did not appeal to me as I was too engaged with BF2MC becoming a 3 star General. I have never played Bioshock. Haven't touched Castle Crashers or Braid. I also have not played any other CoD game since CoD4MW. I now own a PC. I played L4D2 on PC and loved the game, especially with the amount of mods for it now. But playing L4D2 without those mods makes the game boring for me.

I used to only play NFS racers but now MotorStorm has changed that for me completely. I am sorry but for both Forza and Gran Turismo I find those games very boring. Yes I know they are SIMULATORS but MotorStorm seems to have me on edge ALL the time. Burnout was a fun game while it lasted, but it became to much of a "brawler" for me to continue playing it.

Then the final one. Out of ALL the shooters combined there is only 1 Title that I keep coming back to. No matter what it turns out to be, through thick and through thin. I will always buy it brand new, in its case, still in shrink wrap, on day: one, hour: Zero, minute: Zero, and second: one. 00:00:01.00 hours. What is that game? Only the most "complicated tactical mess" as described by complete newbies. A game that REQUIRES team work. The only game that has "Captive" as a mode. The one that truly makes you jump up and SHOUT when you finally take out a tough enemy. One that can make you laugh so hard you don't even care about dying, even when your friend goes down right next to you. The one game that can get you completely invigorated within a split second because you just tripped over an enemy PMN Mine, for which the colors of it are always Blue on top and Red on bottom.

What game is that? I ask the audience for this answer. Starts with an S and ends with an M. Can't get any more obvious than that.
EdwardS087  +   1603d ago
S.O.C.O.M? lol To each his own, I respect your opinion. But your bit about the other Halos is simply ignorant. You not playing Bioshock is a loss for you as a gamer. Alan Wake? Another loss for you as a gamer. If all the titles you love are on the PS3 only I'd say you are secluded when it comes to games or have a limited taste. The fact of the matter is that each platform has games that every gamer should play. You disagree with that, than yes: you are deluded.
The_Con-Sept  +   1603d ago
@EdwardS087 My taste in games used to be involved with a lot of RPG's.

Not just JRPG's either. I played through FF7 only half way but when I played Legend of the Dragoon I simply loved it all the way through. I played through all four discs of the .hack games. I played Diablo 2 until I got my account banned for the drm crap... (Couldn't find my old original D2 disc.) When I had a PC I was playing Sim City 3000 and Roller Coaster Tycoon. I also played the first Sims game but I got bored of it really fast.

I started playing the free PC games like Aliance of Valiant Arms and Gunz online. As well as Dungeon Fighter Online.

When it comes to fighters I played Mortal Kombat 1, 2, 3, 3U, and 64. Skipped a few and then stopped after Armageddon. I ended up loving Tekken when I played Tekken 5 DR Online. Now it is BlazBlue and I play as Bang Shishigami. I never liked the Street Fighter series because it was too fast paced. You can say the same about BlazBlue but I only like playing as Bang. Simple move set and the ability to dash in mid air, TWICE.

Bioshock did not intrigue me much. I was too busy playing Fallout 3 and Elder Scrolls. Now I own Fallout New Vegas on PC. I love Portal. And I even bought F1 2010. But I miss my PS3 and MotorStorm the most. I haven't had a PS3 since 2008.

Socom is the number one game I will always play. I missed Socom 4 though. But I still have all three on the PSP. I didn't like tactical strike.

When it comes to those nice little click and play adventure games like Alan wake. MYST comes to mind. First game I wanted to kick the shit out of. Then it was Indigo Prophecy. I missed Heavy Rain. I own it but my friend currently holds it for me. He beat the game btw...

Uncharted reminded me of Tomb Raider. And I am simply itching to play through Uncharted 2 and 3.

As for the Halo series. 1 will only EVER be the game I liked out of all Halo games. Sorry but the story pissed me off in 2. Especially when you play as the arbiter. What a waste. 3 just spilt lies all over the place and had too many quirky one liners from alien movies from the 90's. I lost all hope for the Halo series after 3. It was like Bungie pulled a "Scary Movie" on their own series.

But I am the only person who signed the petitions against Call of Duty AND Battlefield and I am simply sticking to it. Never played any new CoD games and I do not like what EA and Dice are doing with BF3. I will stick to TF2 and CS for life. I want to see CS:Global Offensive.

And for you saying I have a limited taste. I never played Ico or Shadow of the Colossus. I never played Devil May Cry 1, 2, or 3. I was too busy playing Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1, 2, 3, 4, U1, and U2. I played through Legacy of Kaine but I only played through Spyro the Dragon 1. Crash 1 and 3. I played through Tomb Raider 1 and 2. As for SNES... Mega Man 7, Mario 1, 2, and 3, Mario Kart, Starfox. One series I miss a lot from N64 is Extreme G. What happened to games like Forsaken 64? Twisted Metal is one game I loved from the get go. I have played through hundreds of games. I even remember the time I finally got into Metal Gear Solid. I never knew about the entire series until I bought a PS3 back in early 2007. After I played the first one I immediately went to the next one. I beat the crap out of MGS4. And now I have all of the ones on PSP to sit through still.
The_Con-Sept  +   1603d ago
But the Xbox in general does not have as many games that I want to play. And now I only own a PC, and I believe that I am too old to play video games anymore. I have a steady job that keeps me on the edge 24/7 and I barely have time to play my games. To say I am not a gamer is a joke. The XBOX simply does not hold my interest as much as Sega, Nintendo, PC, and Sony have for the past 20 years. To say the least... Xbox came into existence a bit too late for me. I was too occupied with too many other games.

@Kane_1371 below: I miss the NFS Hot Pursuit 2 back on PS2. Is the new one fun? I want to get it for PC but because EA has been getting on my nerves as of late... I am on the fence about it. I want to buy it but... It is holding me back.

You actually got me to log in after so long.
Since i have been out of the light to escape all these blind fanboys.
I myself am a PS3 fanboy, but not a blind one.
My answer to your question is this.
If you had asked me 2 years ago I would answer with more games.
There are (were) few games to begin with.
Forza 3 made me want cuz it was a very realistic looking but also arcadey and easy to play.
I can't enjoy gt5 cuz it is too realistic.
Dead Rising was one thing I wanted for real and it found its way to PlayStation which made me glad.
Mass effect I had an eye for and when it was announced I really enjoyed the news.
I might still go and pic number 1 someday for PC.
Now there is only one exclusive game left on Xbox that I want and that is alan wake although I played through the game once, I wouldn't mind a play through with move.
I replaced forza with nfs:HP.
I didn't enjoy halo after playing multiple times both campaign and multiplayer and understand why halo fans enjoy the game.
The online part of the game is enormous.
I recommend all PS3 fans try to test it, although I didn't really enjoy but I could see how much time bungie did spend on the game.
So your answer for now is Alan Wake
Mikefizzled  +   1604d ago
Well the thing I am currently envying the most is the PS3 list of remakes. I would love to play the splinter cells in HD. Its seems ill have to stick to the remake to a revolutionary FPS. Halo CE:A :)
DigitalAnalog  +   1604d ago
I wouldn't choose the HD remasterings on Splinter cells
Not only do they not target 60fps from old games, their frame-rates at 30FPS also suffer. Better stick to the PC ones instead.

YodaCracker  +   1604d ago
Kinect was a massive success. Move was not (to say the least). That should easily explain why there is so much Kinect support.
Why o why  +   1603d ago
Thats working backwards dude. These kinct games were penned ages ago judging by their natal developer lists you guys were braggin about. Ms's direction is clear and guys like you bend over because it sells well. Good for you. Im into the type of games that made me purchase a ps360 in the first place....core games. My preference didnt just change because ms's did. No 8 month gaps from my console provider so i enjoy all the good to great exclusives on top of all the good to great multiplats you had no choice but to enjoy. I cant lose
Flatbattery  +   1603d ago
Kinect was aggressively marketed as a must have game changer, Move was not. Which given the gullability of the general public explains why Kinect sold so well. Move still sold well for an optional control method, but most still seem blind to this.

If you are happy about your console of choice being turned from a traditional game machine to a fitness machine then fine, I'm happy for you. I on the other hand am not and will continue to support the console that adds optional peripherals not required ones.
RAmar101  +   1604d ago
Only 3 exclusive games all year for 360

Ps3 had plenty, and will have more in 2012 in comparison to 360

Ps3 will always have more titles...get over it!

360 will always have less titles...I'm already over it!
YodaCracker  +   1604d ago
You're wrong, though.

The Xbox 360 currently has a total of 226 exclusive titles:

The PS3 has 190 exclusive titles:

The PS3 may have more exclusive games in 2011, but when you look at the bigger picture, the 360 still has the lead.

A 1 year gap between console releases and some blatant wiki errors will do that though.

For example, why are they counting 2012 games like Halo 4 and Sly 4 but not an upcoming 2011 exclusive like Amy?
Why count XBLA Indy games like 'I Made a Game with Zombies in It' but not Minis like 'A Space Shooter for 2 bucks'?
Why count Ninja Gaiden Sigma but not No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise?
Why count Tetris on the 360 but not Tetris on the PS3?
