But that's the thing. The PS3 doesn't need that many "new exclusives" since the price of ps3 and xbox is now the same.

Mutliplatform games can also sell a console like MW2. MW1 was the reason I bought the PS3. Also sony can put some ads for LBP, or infamous, so they get better recognized. They are still great games.

The author mentions Uncharted 2, but he clearly missed GT 5. Plus Demon souls is also coming out. He missed that also.

Demon's Souls, Ratchet & Clank Future: ACIT, and Uncharted 2 are all really important games to me, even if some of them aren't getting any media hype. Demon's Souls is my game of the year, so far, I played the Asia version for 114 hours and got the platinum. Brilliant old-school style game with some unique and innovative new-school features.

Don't forget Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, Eyepet, and possibly Gran Turismo 5.
