Exclusives are what defines a console. I wonder why some people say exclusives don't matter now but they weren't saying that in 2006 and 2007? And I wonder why some people say multi plats are better now but they weren't saying that in 2006 and 2007? And I wonder why multi plats didn't matter back when the PS3 has few exclusives but they mean the world now?

Because opposing Sony is "the cool thing to do"

Edit: Denying the double standard doesn't make it go away or invalidate it.

A lot of fanboys were like EXCLUSIIVEESS FTW when PS3 just came out and havent had time to build exclusive line up.

Now that PS3 dominates the exclusive line up, suddenly same fanboys say exclusives dont matter.

BTW, about one third of 90+ metascore games for PS3 are exclusives. So yea exclusives do matter a lot unless you bought gaming console for something other than gaming. Fanboys makes me laugh.

Exclusives DO NOT define a console. What defines a console is having the games you want to play. Exclusives are what sets one console apart from the other.

The defining moment is when you can see yourself enjoying the games that appeal to you as the consumer/gamer.

So the idea of this or that as being better or worse is purely subjective. We all place value differently on things in our lives. Even when it comes to entertainment value in our games.

It seems that the multiplats might be king this year, however.

evilunklebud2136d ago

So Batman and/or Skyrim will not be g.o.t.y.?

Hypicricy runs deep in the gaming world.
All camps are guilty.

Best thing to do is just try not to get involved with it, no matter how moronic some people are.

AgentWD402136d ago

and people wonder why people love to hate on sony, I cant remeber seeing any xbox 360 superiority storys on n4g. This is the problem these pathetis storys get approved the sony fanboys lap it up and then wonder why they are getting trolled makes me laugh

Biggest2136d ago

Only because you have an extremely short memory.

ksense2136d ago

the amount of ps3 is dead articles early when it launched had all the xbox fanboys lap it up and then wonder why they getting it back now that the ps3 is bringing out their big guns...

JBaby3432136d ago

I remember seeing so many "PS3 is teh DOOMZ" and "xbox360 is better than sex" articles back in the day. It was just crazy.

D3mons0ul2136d ago (Edited 2136d ago )

You don't remember it because it goes against your bias to acknowledge it now that the tables have turned.

evilunklebud2136d ago

Agreed... both sides have been punks at one point or another.

Even if you're an XBOX fanboy, you have to admit that the PS3 has a good line up. PS3 is my console of choice, but I bought an XBOX for some exclusives and multiplat games, but I have to say, Gears 3 is the only game that's been occupying it's tray recently.

I hope MS spends some money on actual exclusives, and not timed DLC and crap like that.

Septic2136d ago

Yeah the PS3 has definately had a much stronger line-up of exclusives but Forza 4 and GoW 3 are excellent games in their own right and can hold their own.

Multiplats this year, however might just steal the show because they have been great.

If Zelda is as good as reviewers are saying it is, then forget ALL the games this year, THAT is going to be king. Better than Ocarina of Time? That thought itself makes my tummy tingle.

Either way, I own all consoles except the Wii (which I gave to my cousins and am now KICKING myself for because of Zelda) and I can't handle all the amazing games that are out. I just don't have time.

I haven't even completed:

Uncharted 3
MW 3 campaign
Batman: Arkham City
Resistance 3

LET ALONE complete the 'old' games I haven't had the time to complete:

Prey (remember this anyone?!)
The Darkness
Bioshock 1 and 2 (yes shame on me)
Dead Space 1 and 2 (yes, again shame on me)
Lost Odyssey

I blame MP games like BF3, Mortal Kombat 9 etc. Once Twisted Metal comes out (another amazing PS3 exclusive), all other games will take a back seat once again.

This is proof that there is such a thing as too much win!

Avernus2136d ago

You're having the same problem I'm having. Too many games, too little time.

hadouken0072136d ago

Same here, I got so many games to finish.

Objective2136d ago

The greatest games for me this year were released about the last quarter: Gears, Forza, Uncharted, Skyrim, Battlefield, Batman, so I have to disagree with this article.

Sugreev20012136d ago

The amazing exclusive line-up is the reason why the PS3 is my console of choice.I play a lot of 360 exclusives too,but that number has gone down dramatically over the years.

MilkMan2136d ago

Boring ass conversation. No such thing as GOTY. I've said this like a billion times.

Sales alone should not dictate this.
And as far as we know what floats the boat of one gamer another may hate.

So you CAN compare games "in class" like Gears of War vs Uncharted because they are third person shooters and they are action adventure games, but you cannot place Gears, Uncharted, Skyrim, Call of Duty, Battlefield 3, Need For Speed, L.A Noire, Dungeon Defenders and Zelda as competitors (for example) for GOTY.

That's bananas.

This isnt Oscar night at the movies (which is also ridiculous). Keep that made up crap for the folks that dont know. Game of the Year? that's a load of bullsh*t.
