As a gamer of a single format, should you really be that bothered about exclusives on other systems as much as you're told you should be?
is fable/infamous a good comparison? they seem totally different to me.
yay! More top 10 lists and less actual gaming news!!!
Msxbox-world is garbage. That said, if you're not interested why are you and the people agreeing with you even here?
^^^ If "Msxbox-world is garbage", then why are YOU here??
uh well for starters you can't see the source till you actually click on the article...might just be my browser though
I don't plan on reading this but someone please tell me they didn't add killzone in that list. I love the KZ franchise.
zeeshan, They did. I was just running Killzone 3 this morning. It is ridiculous they would include that game. There is not a darker, grittier war game out there. Brutal is the best way to describe the combat in Killzone 3 whether in SP or MP. Every time I go more than a week without running that game and drop it in after gaming other titles I am stunned at the way it looks and how visceral the combat comes across. For me personally it is one of the most underrated games on any platform this generation. Online Co-op is the only place they dropped the ball but that is far outweighed by an overwhelmingly jaw dropping SP and MP package. msxbox-world has firmly established themselves as one of the true hit dump sites of the gaming medium. "msxbox-world - one of the 5 trash sites gamers shouldn't care about"
@ Morganfell: I would say Killzone 2 is darker and grittier than Killzone 3. That is actually my major complaint with KZ3 is that they made it too light and pretty. It lost that ominous effect KZ2 had. That being said, Killzone 3 has no business on this list. This whole article is just complete fail. They just grouped games of the same genre and said you shouldn't care because the other system (depending on which you have) has a game of the same genre yet missing the finer points of what the games bring that make them unique and not just the same game on a different system. Total fail article. Sucks I gave them a hit.
@room "Msxbox-world is garbage. That said, if you're not interested why are you and the people agreeing with you even here?" "uh well for starters you can't see the source till you actually click on the article" If you're going to justify being here when you think the site is garbage, don't criticize others for being here and thinking the site is garbage! lol
- Fable makes up for Infamous? Totally different. - Gears and Uncharted? Also very different games (despite the incessant media push to want to compare them). Good job msxbox-world.com LOL
lol this is so funny "hey guys! that lame @ss article didn't get us enough hits :(" "time to change the strategy" Result: *5 PS3 exclusives Xbox gamers SHOULDN'T care about and vice versa* XP
Look, it's clear that in the past, MSWorld (and Planet Xbox 360) in the past has catered to the N4G PS3 elitists by going out of it's way to downplay 360 games etc. The flame titles and content gets them hits from this site. One of these times they tried to pretend that Xbox 360 gamers were somehow upset after the VGAs because of the 'Last of Us' trailer. When it clearly was not the case. I've been the one of the very few keeping it real by saying that 360 gamers don't care about PS3 exclusives and Vice Versa. LMAO @ the fan blogger from MSWorld reading this and changing his stance and using it in the headline. But, it backfired because of the flame title. Listing 5 games when I'm telling you it's ALLL games. The fankids see this as him comparing the titles, which he was not. I've been critical of these thus site but at the end of the day, this guy is just doing what most of these sites do to find success. Evil
Why dont the complainers simply use the site tools on the index to filter news? Dont click ALL. Problem solved.
(Fable 3, Halo: Reach, Killzone 3, PC, PS3, Resistance 3, Xbox 360) ....PC, Ps3, Xbox 360... How exactly does selecting certain platform solve this problem? Maybe that's not what you meant, and if so, please explain.
MS-Xbox World; NO! It's wrong to make 360 players feel like they're not missing out on anything (since PS3 owners know they are!). I think everyone should own a PC, PS3 and 360 if they can afford the upkeep. Best gaming experience ever.
So......... um when will we get anything we call news? Im tired of these stupid top 10 lists
Where's all the gaming news? And what's up with these Xbox 360 web sites talking about PS3 so much?
I think people are getting confused here. The article isn't saying that one game is better than the other - just that if you've only got one of the systems, then "this games 'kinda similar." Nice idea. Unnecessary indignation left right 'n centre.....
The problem is the only valid replacement is GT5 and Forza. The others are far too different to qualify.
LOL @ the comparisons. Next they'll be trying to put Banjoe Kazooie with Little Big Planet.
please, stop the ridiculous fanboyz's blogs invasion.. gamers don't care.
They are totally different. The only similarity is the moral choice system, and even then, it's almost superfluous. Fable's MC system really just affects the way you look and how people interact with you. It has no bearing on how you play the game or what you can unlock. With inFAMOUS, how you play affects everything from what powers you unlock to how NPCs treat you.
LMAO, all these Xbox dedicated sites are really desperate to get hits, since all they write about is PS3 games... smh
I know. It's getting out of hand. Terrible journalism. This site is really running out of things to write about which is a shame. A new year should mean new prospects and all this site is doing is comparing consoles. It seems that the competition is much more worth talking about..
Look at it from their perspective. What is there to write about for the 360 right now?
Same could easily be said about the ps3. Gaming news is slow this time of year but that's still no excuse to troll others. Msxbox is a terrible site anways along with the planetxbox site then on the other side there's blogs and dualshockers.
They're as desperate as Sony fans are to see the PS3 outsell the 360 some day (and desperate to see their exclusives actually sell respectable numbers).
You know besides halo and gears no other Xbox exclusive sells as good as everybody thinks. Name another game that sells millions besides gears and halo.
What do you consider "respectable?" Because if you're thinking of the types of numbers Halo puts up, only multiplats sell that high, and not even a lot of those do. If that IS your idea of "respectable," then almost nothing on 360 sells "respectably." Stop being such a fanboy.
@TheFallenAngel Uhhh, Fable, Forza, Kinect Sports, and Dance Central to name a few all sold between 3-5million.
Then Uncharted, God of War 3, Resistance, Gran Turismo Prologue sold 3-5million just to name a few.
not sure why phear got disagrees those games actually do sell millions and it was in response to fallen angels blind comment about halo and gears being the only exclusives that sell millions on the xbox. Too many ps3 fanboys on this site i tell you.
O and the new resistance didn't even come close to 3-5 million don't think its even reached 1 million yet.
>InFamous and Fable similar. lulz.
If you liked it then you should of put a ring on it!
A Halo ring...?
Emulating 4chan on non4chan sites plz get out
sure a halo ring. stupid articles get stupid comments! bottom line
"all these Xbox dedicated sites are really desperate to get hits, since all they write about is PS3 games." Ok let's just disprove this myth because people don't read beyond the headline. None of the following are pertaining specifically to the PS3 like is suggested. Msxbox-world most recent features: Under age sex, rape acceptable - 2011 the year video games grew up? How good at gaming are you - Something for the weekend 1 Top 5 Xbox 360 exclusive shooters Xbox 360 Speed Wheel Review Trialing the trials: Trine 2 Trialing the trials: All Zombies Must Die GTA 5 + Motionscan = too realistic? Msxbox - 2011 Games of the year Could Halo 4 become a multi format release? Some people need to check the facts before mouthing off making wide generalized assumptions. I think the biggest problem is that the kids get all upset because of a name of a publication which takes precedent over what is actually written. I agree fully with the opening paragraphs of this article, although not so much with the comparisons made. 90 % of the people here probably won't bother to actually read the opening text and just focus on the headline and pretty pictures.
@RaidensRising "90 % of the people here probably won't bother to actually read the opening text and just focus on the headline and pretty pictures" So why don't you make better headline and chose a better picture.. Why you have to make a headline to get hits, your work should do the talking. PS3 and Xbox both have great games.. but with headline like these no wonder people on both side fight everyday about the same crap... Gaming media will never get respect like other forms of media with this crap!
RaidensRising...for starters you insult peoples intelligence with the article you wrote. You list 6 PS3 games and 5 360 games. I understand 360 exclusives are a little sparse but did you really think your audience so stupid as to not be able to count? -Resistance/Killzone vs Halo (At least they're FPS games) -GT5 vs F4 -Infamous vs Fable (LOL! WTF?) -Uncharted vs Gears (Yeah, they're the same.) -Heavy Rain vs Alan Wake (Again...WTF?) Now I'll leave the reason you grouped together the games you did and move along. After reading the article I feel I have to ask. Was it a challenge to come up with justifications for your choices that were so flimsy? The whole thing smacks of hit whoring. To top it all off you post it to N4G and proceed to insult and attack any that take you to task over the ill-conceived and badly produced trash you passed off as an article. I mean full points to you for having the hide to try. Just don't get upset and go all fifth-grader when people rightly label it for what it is.
First off you must not have read the author of the article....it wasn't RaidensRising, but rather Shadowmask. I did the looking for you since you overlooked it in the 1st place. You can find him here: http://n4g.com/user/home/sh... While the article will inflame fanboys of either side I think it was meant to show that there are games each can enjoy and not worry about what the other has to offer. As for myself I relish the fact I have both consoles and usually ignore the articles saying "PS3 RULZ" or "360 is King" as it usually is unfounded (something this article didn't do).
"First off you must not have read the author of the article....it wasn't RaidensRising, but rather Shadowmask. I did the looking for you since you overlooked it in the 1st place. You can find him here: http://n4g.com/user/home/sh... You mean it was written by the European PR rep for msxboxworld? RaidensRising just posted it on N4G and attacked users who pointed out what it was? Is that right? Well my mistake. I'll try not to let it happen again. "While the article will inflame fanboys of either side I think it was meant to show that there are games each can enjoy and not worry about what the other has to offer." It's nice that you agree that it was deliberately inflammatory (to fanboys...yeah! Way to be dismissive. Do you think it'll work?). "As for myself I relish the fact I have both consoles and usually ignore the articles saying "PS3 RULZ" or "360 is King" as it usually is unfounded (something this article didn't do)." This cracks me up the most. I read you comment below. Your continuous attempts at downplaying this "article" leads me to believe you also work for msxboxworld, and this is nothing more than a poor attempt at damage control. So just to summarize: -Written by msxboxworld PR rep. -Posted by employee. -Deliberately inflammatory. -Attacking people for vocalizing their thoughts on the piece is just fine and not worth addressing. -You suddenly have a compulsion to downplay the "article" for no apparent reason whatsoever. What do you say? That about the size of it? Here's a shovel. If you really want to clean this "article" up you better get started. It's such a massive load it's going to take you a while.
Its a conspiracy i tell you! every body on N4G is working for msxboxworld!
You disproved your own premise by apparently struggling to come up with actual 360 exclusives.
Hey man if you can't take the criticism than maybe you shouldn't post flamebait article titles? Just a thought.
Tell me about it, man. The thing that boggles the mind, more so than the author calling Uncharted/Gears similar and Fable/inFAMOUS similar is that there's actually still people defending the 360 as if it's the definitive platform for core gamers. Antz, you know me better than anyone on here and when I met you, I was a giant 360 fanboy. Now, look, I'm on side Sony. As anyone with half a brain should be able to figure out, PS3 has more exclusive games (to be honest, these are the only reason I own the console since I have such a powerful rig) and games that nearly everybody feels are better. You know, I can take someone liking Gears 3 or Forza over Uncharted 3 or GT4 or whatever, but what I can't take are ignorant fanboys that can't even count the number of games their system has, let alone provide good reasoning as to why FABLE AND FRIGGIN' INFAMOUS ARE SIMILAR. Oh, but according to the article, they're similar in that "the experiences at a basic level are remarkably similar." I could take that same logic and connect it to every video game ever made. *ahem* Tower Defense and Fallout: New Vegas are hereby very similar games because you can control the aspects of at least one thing. This is the author's logic. WTF?
well both have a moral system, Both have elemental powers, both have shooting. Only difference is ones open world the other is not.
@mynameisEvil "Now, look, I'm on side Sony. As anyone with half a brain should be able to figure out, PS3 has more exclusive games" Actually there are more 3rd party games on both systems than there are exclusives. To the arguement that more is better I have 2 words for you: Justin Bieber.
wait did he just list all xbox exclusives in that article?
Nope, there's no Crackdown, PGR, Mass Effect, SC: Conviction, Metro 2033, Lost Odyssey and many more
3 of those are on PC...
Exclusive means for 1 platform. So you mentioned only 2 exclusives.
Oooh this should bring up some fresh and mature comments/arguments. Surprised nobody thought to compare consoles/exclusives before...
Over 4 years I've frequented this site everyday. I think it is time to stop. I really can't remember the last time I got some good gaming news from here. You can't voice your opinion because you will be a troll... almost 30 years of gaming and I am not allowed to have an opinion. Nice... and then the same thing that will get you one bubble here gets hottest article time after time. Just hypocrisy I can do without.
Drekken - no kidding huh? here have a bubble. Whenever I've called a spade a spade on N4G, Ive been bubbled down, disagree bombed, and reported for trolling. Most recently I had my former account banned... Why? who knows, probably for the same reason you only have one bubble. Because we speak our mind, we state our opinion, we call a spade a spade, and we stick to our guns. It seems there are users on this site that are sseemingly able to troll endlessly and post flamebait everywhere, only to amass infinite "agrees" and be granted bubbles.. but those folks aren't you and me. Unmfortunatley, that is the culture of N4G; some are accepted others are not. You are right.. we should reeally get back to gaming NEWS and stop approving these hit-seeking, flamebait articles. Especially when it's apparent that most of the N4G community is not mature enough to have an adult conversation about subject matter where there will be different opinions.
@ Drekken and FunkMacNasty It seems I've been in similar situations. My former account was banned for replying to a douche. I recently lost a bubble on here because I called a douche a douche. From the most recent incident, someone stated that they actually liked DNF. The person who replied said that, because he liked DNF, his taste in games must suck. I called this dickbag a dickbag. I lost a bubble, the other guy got away with his insult. This is what happens with this site. The only way I managed to get my bubble back is because enough people like Naughty Dog that people liked me telling off someone who was trolling Naughty Dog's good name. Sometimes on this site, being a gamer's gamer can earn you bubbles. Only sometimes...
Gears, Alan Wake, and Fable can be played on PC.
@Strongman Everyone on N4G is to busy using their 80inch TV's to notice something is on the PC. Strongman, I'm on your side man. The moment I found out Metal gear Solid was also available on the PC I was like "Now this game isn't as good as it was before I learned this.". The same can be said for what you listed above, once the PC port was released they all of a sudden became really bad games.
A PC is not a console the same way a train is not an airplane. Understand?
This article is nonsense. Why the hell should someone stop caring for these games? They're one of the best franchises and we just stop caring? Da hell?
Heh, I could not do without Uncharted myself, same for Gears, I think the point trying to be made is that if you're a single platform gamer that both sides offer similar experiences.
I don't really think Alan Wake and Heavy Rain are similar. Heavy Rain was depressing but great at the same time. Alan Wake is a Horror themed game. But w\e .. if he sees similarities.
I think the comparison was more about both titles coming under the banner of 'Thriller', while offering rather unique gameplay experiences from each other. The same holds true for the rest of the comparisons, the only one I don't agree with really is the Infamous / Fable comparsion, I'd be more inclined to pair off Infamous against Crackdown.
Ah I see.
I don't know why everybody is comparing Uncharted with Gears. They are both third person shooters but that's where the similarities end. The settings and stories are totally different. They may be similar in what they mean for their respective console (best graphics, huge fanbase) but the games are still very different. And every gamer should play both.
"And every gamer should play both." Hit the nail on the head. Though I'm not rushing out to get Gears 3, I played the other 2 and they were decent.
Having both consoles is great and while I haven't been overly impressed with PS3 exclusives it is Uncharted that keeps me holding onto my PS3. I'm glad I did with naughty dog being one of the best developers around and sticking with the PS3 exclusively. Also there are some other games looming on the horizon that will keep me glued to my dual shock. Now I originally got the 360 for Halo 3, but it has been the Gears franchise that I've played the most. Amazing games with an all around package, maybe not the best story telling, but a fun campaign.
can understand some of them but Infamous/Fable? how are they even remotely similar
I'd take Halo, Forza, Infamous, Uncharted and although I haven't played it probably Heavy Rain because I thought Alan Wake was very average. With that being said it's a stupid list either way.
