IGN - Which PS3-centric titles should you keep on your radar?
Wow, just the fact that there are 20 to choose from is amazing. Playstation is really cranking out those exclusives for sure. That Closure game really interests me... XD
Quality > Quantity. Plus, many of these are downloadable titles. If you were to count those for each platform, PC, Wii, and 360 would have just as many, if not more. Edit: Except, 90% of this list isn't Uncharted quality.
Exactly, most PS3 exclusives are of AMAZING quality. Take Uncharted and Heavy Rain for example, or the God of War games. Either way, people used to complain about PS3 not having any games when it first appeared, looks like that has changed drastically as of late which is definitely a good thing. ^^
What are you talking about half the titles on this list are quality titles. Nothing I am excited about personally but you couldn't write a list of 10 360 quality exclusive titles. Some games on there like Last Guardian and Twisted metal just cannot be matched on the 360. Not to mention the sheer amount of JRPGs on the list. Also downloadable titles? Only like 5-6 of them are downloadable. I am not a ps3 fanboy or anything but 360 exclusive these days are usually kinect only titles. Its depressing me.. I only use my 360 for dance central now and sky player :(.
"Quality > Quantity" Yes, this is without a doubt true. The best part of being a PS3 consumer is you get the best of both worlds.
sorry Brutalhonesty, i pressed disagree by mistake. i actually agree with you and what that list shows quite clearly is: Quality>diversity>quant ity which is why i stick with Sony
You forget that no other platform has this many amount of exclusives, they dont even come close to 5 exclusives LOL! PS3 has quality AND quantity, Wii has no games, 360 has only couple of Kinect games left and PC... lol does it even have games outside those weird games no one plays? PS3 offers something for everyone.
Get ready to lose your last bubble! PS3 has not only quality, but also quantity. They can do both unlike Microsoft who do Gears, Forza, Halo, Fable, Gears, Forza, Halo, Fable...etc. BTW all those I listed are now yearly titles with the exception of Gears.
You people confuse me.... or is it that you are the ones confused? In 2007 it was always quantity > quality when it came to 360 games vs PS3 games, because you know "PS3 has no games" remember? But now that PS3 has the quantity, it's turned into quality > quantity? Unfortunately for you, PS3 has both. It has increased it's quantity AND variety while keeping the quality. What's next? "exclusives don't matter anymore"?
@xPhearR3dx i will always welcome Quality over Quantity but then again Sony i doing both that why uncharted 3 win all the gfx awards and was one of the top 5 most awarded and rated games in 2011 go look at them in wiki now where are gears 3 or forza 4 awards ??? don't bother here gears3 only won 3 awards from the whole year lolXD check wiki for your self and forza4 won nothing those was the only exclusives on xbox last year Owned
Uhh yeah, Playstation has Quality AND Quantity, 360 has neither so...
Quantity usually means more quality, dude. Is there more likely to be 3 amazing games out of 5 possible, or 20 possible games? Don't try to spin this into something negative.. There's nothing wrong with a little optimism.
Would all of you assholes quit trash talking the 360. Seriously the shits been getting old For years. I love my ps3 as much as the next guy what with twisted metal, rachet and clank and heavy rain but the 360 is still an awesome console as well. They both have pros and cons in the overall experience that makes people have specific preferences over them. Grow up, both consoles are great. This is 2012, just love gaming and stop being assholes.
Well it goes both ways, the ones trash talking and down playing what the PS3 has, needs to stop too. Especially on PS3 centered articles. As for the list almost half of them is what I'm waiting for.
I cannot wait for Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
Neither can I. I'll probably be importing it from America though because of the utterly stupid decision not to have the European and american release dates at the same time.
Yeah the game looks promising.
I thought Ni No Kuni was also on DS? Oh well. I'm getting it on PS3 anyway.
I dont think Ni no Kuni is on the DS in the U.S. It is on the DS in Japan
Ah ok. Thanks for the info, yo.
Yea, no problem man
Ni No Kuni is the game always w8ing for to play from the time I buy my PS3, finally a traditional fairy-like turn-based JRPG with the original Japanese Voice Over included, and as all that wasn't enough we have even the legendary studio Ghibli the only anime studio in the world who have won an OSCAR and countless other awards to design the art! this game is the most "MUST-BUY/DAY1" title for me than any other ever in PS3. End of 2012 they say eh? :/ w8ing for this game to be released will be unbearably...
LittleBigPlanet Karting Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time The Last Guardian The Last Of Us Starhawk (maybe) Dragon's Crown (not listed, but I'm hoping Vanillaware's still working on it) are the games I care to have.
cant wait to play em all :D especially starhawk and sly 4, been waiting on that game for so many years.
Another strong year. That 'Doctor Who' game isn't really PS3 exclusive since it's on Vita and also PC (I know they mention this in the article but they shouldn't have included it in a PS3-only list). 'Warrior's Lair' is not a PS3 exclusive, so again why is it on such a list? Ratchet & Clank HD and Resident Evil Chronicles HD are not exclusive as such, but I guess the HD-ness and extra features are exclusive to the PS3 version. So I guess these are exclusive features. Just to be clear before you disagree, none of this affect's the actual exclusives PS3 has for 2012. There are 16(!!!) exclusives on that list which is still a goddamn amazing number. 10 of them are retail ones. I'd just rather people be more honest about the word "exclusive". Lots of JRPGs there - can't say all of them appeal to me but it's nice to see lots of support for it. "Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch" is the DON of the list of RPGs though. Looks too damn good! Those saying that it's not exclusive (since there's also one on the DS) are not entirely correct, since the PS3 version is under a different sub-title, and has a different story, gameplay and assets. That is enough to make it exclusive in my books. I'm already half expecting the lame fanboy excuses as far as sales go, and let me tell you now. I don't care if you think that whatever these games sell dictates their quality, because that has never been a legitimate indicator.
That is definitely an impressive list, Sony has always been strong on game support so its not surprising to me. So the interesting thing I am starting to looking at though... is what is coming 2013 that is confirmed PS3? That to me is the telling thing for possible new hardware.
For 2013 games, I don't think anything is confirmed, but there's a possibility (as always) for games to be delayed into the new year. The Last of Us has been given a tentative 2012 date so that could be a 2013 title. Hopefully The Last Guardian will be out this year, but it could be delayed again into 2013. Santa Monica's new game (God of War IV?), Quantic Dream, Media Molecule & Sucker Punch's new games haven't been confirmed for 2012, so they could slip into 2013. Gran Turismo 6? Maybe that too, since it was recently confirmed to be in production (not sure what platform though). Then there's Final Fantasy Versus XIII that is almost definitely going to be out in 2013 (at least outside of Japan). You could be right. 2012 is PS Vita's year to get established in the portable marketplace. 2013 is quite possibly a fit for a new home console, but I'm thinking 2014.
I bet the reason Naughty Dog has 2 teams is so that one of them can start work on a launch title for the PS4.
2012-2013 what do ps3 fans have? MLB 12 the show Jak and daxter collection ratchet and clank collection resident evil chronicles HD collection twisted metal yakuza dead souls Dust 514 last of us last guardian sly 4 final fantasy versus XIII starhawk dragon's crown littlebigplanet karting god of war 4 syphon filter 4 way of the samurai 4 tales of graces f tales of xillia Mugen Souls The Witch and the Hundred Knights hyperdimension neptunia mk2 ni no kuni atelier meruru: the apprentice of arland Sorcery (move) pixeljunk 4AM (PSN) Journey (PSN) Closure (PSN) Legasista (PSN) Wheels of destruction (PSN) datura (PSN) warrior’s lair (PSN) papo and yo (PSN) pure chess (PSN) Guerilla Games new FPS IP (no name yet) Media Molecule new IP (no name yet) Quantic Dream new IP (no name yet) Sucker Punch next game (no name yet) Playstation all-stars battle royale (name might change) what do xbox fans have? halo 4 forza horizon star wars (Kinect) fable the journey (Kinect) steel battalion (Kinect) ryse (Kinect) alan wake American nightmare (xbox live) sine mora (xbox live) wreckateer (xbox live) fable heroes (xbox live) trials evolution (xbox live) deadlight (xbox live) nuff said
LOL... dude...you are listing exclusives and you felt the need to pad the list with these? Guerilla Games new FPS IP (no name yet) Media Molecule new IP (no name yet) Quantic Dream new IP (no name yet) Sucker Punch next game (no name yet) I just find that funny. Sony's list is impressive enough with out the "padding" of unconfirmned games. BTW.. you probably should put the Witcher 2 Xbox 360 version on the list. Its getting enough of a makeover and additional content for consideration. Plus there is Draco coming too.
Guerrilla Games, Media Molecule, Quantic Dream, Sucker Punch, and Sony Santa Monica are all confirmed to be working on new IP's for the PS3 right now. Type in (*developer name* new IP) on Google.
and you have release dates for those unannounced games as well as platform? Could very well be PS4 games at this point.
No, all the articles say are that the devs are working on new IP's. Why would they have confirmed release dates yet if they just started working on the project? Sucker Punch confirmed for new IP on PS3. http://www.destructoid.com/... Sony Santa Monica confirmed hiring for new IP, most likely on PS3. Also rumored for God of War 4. http://www.nowgamer.com/new... Quantic Dream confirmed for new IP. Since they aren't owned by Sony, no platforms have been given but founder of the studio confirmed they are exclusive to Sony and PlayStation 3. http://www.1up.com/news/hea... http://www.vg247.com/2012/0... Guerilla Games is confirmed for new IP, and new Killzone 4 on PS3. http://www.joystiq.com/2011... Media Molecule is confirmed on new IP. http://thesilentchief.com/2... I highly doubt they are going to be PS4 titles. Considering Sony confirmed next gen announcements won't even be given ANY time soon let alone E3. http://www.cinemablend.com/... If they won't talk about next gen then what will they announce? Most likely new games for the PS3 am I right? No need to nitpick man, all that matters is that games are being developed for gamers.
I'm not that interested in what multi-media features a console has to offer. For me it's all about the games. Exclusives are the #1 deciding factor for which console wins the generation. The PS3 dominates the competition in terms of exclusive games which is why the PS3 is my platform of choice. I didn't think Sony would be able top the incredible PS3 exclusive lineup of 2011, but 2012 sure does look promising. So far this year I've been enjoying PS3 exclusives such as: Jak and Daxter Collection, Twisted Metal and Journey The upcoming PS3 exclusives I'm most looking forward to are: Starhawk, Sorcery, Ni No Kunit, Ratchet and Clank Collection, Dust 514, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Agent, The Last of Us, LittleBigPlanet Karting and The Last Guardian Unconfirmed PS3 exclusives I'm anticipating: Syphon Filter, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and God of War IV Not to mention all the great Vita exclusives coming out this year. Sony spoils their fans.
Some of these games Ive never heard of! I had no idea PS3 had this many exclusives....
Wow, so many exclusives.. i'm glad i'm PS3 fan, good time to own a PS3 if you asked me
So many exclusives but so many of them will have poor sales. You can brag about how many exclusives were getting all day but most of you guys will probably only buy 2 or 3 of them because the rest of them dont really look that good. The only one I'm looking forward to is The Last of Us and maybe starhawk. ( maybe a couple more )
Hence the diversity. Only 2 or 3 will look good to you but to someone else they might be interested in completely different games. I've already gotten Journey and Twisted Metal but am still interested in - LBP Karting; (maybe) Ratchet and Clank collection; (maybe) Sly Cooper; (maybe) Sorcery; Starhawk; The Last Guardian; The Last of Us And that's just exclusives. I know i want at least two multi-plats this year - Bioshock Infinite; GTA V
Sales don't take away from enjoying games for what they are. I laugh at people like you who always bring up sales.
Some unique JRPGs on that list. Ni No Kuni is a definite buy but the other NIS titles look interesting. I already got Journey and its the best game I've ever played... ever. Other exclusives I'm looking forward to are Last of Us, Last Guardian and Sly. A good year for Ps3 and 3rd party games in general. Lets just hope the Vita gets some love, aside from Gravity Rush they dont have much that interest me.
