PS3 vs 360: Battle of the 2008 and 2009 Exclusives

Gamepro has posted an armchair analysis of the listed retail exclusives known to be coming to the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 in 2008/2009.
Sarcastic Gamer takes a look at the "list" and tells you the real story.

From the article: "Note that we're counting two years, designating "known" versus "announced" (think God of War or Twisted Metal on the PS3… both are "known" coming, but haven't had "real" announcements made yet), we're only counting platform-exclusives (sorry GTA IV and anything involving a guitar) and this only counts for items you can buy at a retail store.

Flame suit on."

The story is too old to be commented.

So he tosses out certain games that aren't to his liking (some which will obviously sell a couple mil.) and then he goes on to say he's an avid Sony supporter?

But with all these unannounced exclusives people keep talking about maybe these lists should just be kept within 2008. Or, just not be made at all!

Let the ps3 fans get giddy. You cant tell me you dont laugh when half of them make walls of text listing titles or why there console is better.

lol...they do it like they're actually gonna sway an opinion.

Little Timmy at comment #3 is a prime example.

I mean cmon you can try a little harder cant you?

JadeTyrant4483d ago (Edited 4483d ago )

not once did he say he is an avid Sony supporter...your talking about that last paragraph i know i know...he is trying to say that ps3's list seems more appealing to a gamer, not a fanboy.........sorry but i have read this thing over and over and i still don't see where it says that...maybe my computer is missing something? I absolutely cannot find that nerds crack me up

You mean kind of like how you reviewed uncharted and admitted your bias towards the 360 and that it's natural? He's entitled to his bias opinion as much as you are.

"He's entitled to his bias opinion as much as you are."

Yea but toughNAME is a random joe making reviews as a hobby(?). This dude is a professional, on a professional site. One gets paid the other doesnt. Yes everyone has a bias opinion, but when your professional your supposed to keep that bias inside. If he came out and said hes an xbox supporter you know you'd be angry too.

@ fenderputty

I didnt mean you, i meant the average ps3 supporter. Sorry i said you, but you were the one i was commenting on. Bias calling out another bias is always gonna happen, this isnt the first time, and it aint the last.

fenderputty4483d ago (Edited 4483d ago )

I know what I like and what's coming out. I know there's good games for both systems. Just so you know, I think NG2 and Alan Wake are going to rock and felt the writer of the article is stupid for dismissing them. Especially when he clearly like the GOW series. He also said he doesn't like racers but wants motorstorm and twisted metal. I know this review was biased, I just find it ironic that a biased individual is calling him out. Pot and Kettle you know?

@ JadeTyrant - "I’m well-known to be an avid PS3 supporter and reluctant 360 gamer"

and Fenderputty.....if this article was titled "Sony Protection Group's Battle of 08/09 Exclusives" then I wouldn't have a problem with it. But this is a general gaming site, I know we all have bias but this writer straight up admits it.

Not only do many other reviewers agree with my PS3 game reviews, but I have failed countless 360 games and NO PS3 games. So that arguement is pretty baseless (for the...I dont know how many times you've attempted to throw this in my face).

Overall this is a pretty shady article. I have lost what ever little respect I ever had for SG

Sayai jin4483d ago

Everyone can debate all day who will have the better games, but to me its not a big deal. I have all three consoles and I destined to get all the best games. To those of you who can not afford all three consoles now. They will all be really inexpensive in the near future. Imagine paying $159 to $199 for a Wii, $199 to $289 for an Xbox Elite, or $199 to $289 for a PS3 and get games like Bioshock, Drakes Fortune, Mass Effect, MGS4, Gears of War, Ratchet and Clank, and the possibiities are limitless. Take away your dislike or your favoritism for the 360, or PS3, or the Wii and think about this, no matter wha great game comes out you will be able to own it, it's just a matter at not emptying your wallet or purses.

They can't include a guitar game, but they include one with a microphone? lol ok. Who cares anyways and why is Metal Gear Online considered as a game, is it seperate?

timmyp534483d ago

I belive MGO will be sold on the Playstation Store and on Blu-ray with much more content though.

iHEARTboobs4483d ago

because they're not exclusive. Singstar is.

Mr PS34483d ago

When it come's to Exclusive's
But it goes way beyond 2008 and 2009
Its a long dark and painful road for all the SUCKA'S

Resistance FOM-(Single player good, online awesome)
Motorstorm-the only fun console racer in my opinion.
Heavenly Sword- great gameplay and immersive story
Folklore-a refreshing action RPG-cool semi-emo story, with great art direction
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune- Great gameplay- awesome story that resembles a hollywood film
Ratchet and Clank: FTOD- an enjoyable experience brings great platforming and gameplay with Pixar movie type graphics.
Call of Duty 4:- Great singleplayer, with a online counterpart that will keep bringing you back.
Warhawk-4 player splitscreen online/offline. Huge maps , cool weapons airplanes, ground vehicles and turrrets etc.
Unreal Tournament 3- Great online experience with awesome mods, maps and etc. Example
GTA 4: No brainer. GTA on a next gen sytem
Metal Gear Solid 4: Epic story and great gameplay.
Haze:Looks very promising 4 player offline and online co-op, nice graphics.
White Knight Chronicles: A JRPG from the makers of Dark Cloud and Jean d'arc. Sweet graphics.
Killzone 2: A very promising shooter with some of the best graphics in console shooter. If gameplay is fun then it should good because the PS2 hardware sorta restricted the first game.
LittleBigPlanet: A social online experience that looks to be very deep with customization and map making.
Getaway 3: This game always had a great story with big production values and big name voice actors. The Devs had 2 games of experience and should be capapble of making a great game.
Resistance 2: Sequel to the popular RFOM. 2 player co-op offline, 8 player co-op offline. Epic online objectives battles with up to 60 players and several soldier types .
Resident Evil 5: No brainer, a resident evil on a next gen system.
Final Fantasy XIII- JRPG with Great Story and Gameplay.
Final Fantasy versus XIII- very promising action rpg which looks just as promising as FFXIII.
God of War III- Slashing and ripping people in half with Kratos in HD? We got a winner.
Shadow of Colossus- Taking the Epic story telling of team ICO's game to the next Gen.

With most of these titles likely to spearhead Sony's Social experience , Home. It will be a great year and next.
