Microsoft’s Desperately Needs Xbox 360 Exclusives. Now.

Compared to its competitors, Microsoft lacks a charismatic and iconic character. The 360′s library is filled with minor, low quality exclusives and lacks a game which would make a person buy or switch to the console. Could this change at this year’s E3?

"The 360′s library is filled with minor, low quality exclusives."

Wow, I know it's his opinion, but that statement is just pure inaccurate. Sure, the exclusives may be fewer in number, but the exclusives are by no means "low quality."

"The Xbox 360 is missing exclusives with a charismatic and recognizable character." -- Um, Halo and Gears don't have "recognizable" characters??

Well, Halo is over except for the rehashes, and Gears is wrapping up; it is time for something new.

1. Gears 3
2. Forza 4
3. Codename Kingdoms
4. Steel Battalion Heavy Armor
5. Codename D
6. Star Wars
7. Rise of Nightmares

Are all confirmed & potentially awesome games! Plus there are some rumored hardcore Kinect titles on the way... I can't wait to find out at E3!

Here come the Xbox Defence Force!

How is it over? Another studio is taking over. It's also like the 2nd most played game on LIVE right after COD. And I don't even own a 360 but facts are facts.

@WiiS3

I think what he is saying that the 360 has a lot of low key exclusives being developed but no new development into major ones like Halo and Gears. What WiiS3 is saying is correct but we have no idea how major these are yet. The problem is lack of First party studios and a lot of these studios are developing for the Kinect not investing in a new great Halo/Gears level franchise.

Let's see I got Dead Space 2 and MVC3 this year and currently enjoying Mortal Kombat and getting LA Noire soon and Duke Nukem next month. Looks like you can still play quality games on the Xbox 360 without having a single "exclusive". Funny how that happens.

TheStonedSheep3529d ago

Microsoft's problem is that it doesn't have very many first party studios; Sony has many so it gets a load of exclusives.

Chug3529d ago

I don't necessarily think MS "needs" exclusives, but I sure as hell do!

I need a reason to own multiple systems.

PureDarkness3529d ago

Yeeeah they do, Sony is dominating exclusives right now

DarkCharizard_3529d ago

Name some good ones on the way..

iamnsuperman3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

Well considering 4 have been released this year so far with Infamous 2 coming out next month and more coming out at the end of the year (R3 and U3, Twisted Metal) and some more possible 2011 but could be pushed back to 2012

iamnsuperman3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

Quite a lot

DarkCharizard_3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

The lineup isn't much to boast about for Sony and it's little fanboys alike.

1. Uncharted 3
2. The Last Guardian
3. Resistance 3
4. Infamous 2
5. Agent

There's Twisted Metal on the way, and it can shape up to be a good game, but it could also be a disappointment... So don't count on it.

Xbox 360 has a good line-up as well. (list above)

Wii has a better (imho) line-up:
1. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
2. The Last Story
3. Xenoblade
4. Kirby's Dreamland
5. Pikmin 3
6. Pandora's Tower
7. Dragon Quest X
8. Rhythm Heaven
9. Earth Seeker

So when you go around saying PS3 exclusives are "Dominating" you may want to watch your mouth.

blackburn103529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

R3, UC3, Twisted Metal,RandC all for One, Infamous 2, Starhawk and Last Guardian not to mention the ones already released like KZ3, MS:A and LBP and dozens of PSN games while 360 owners 'cling' to Gears 3, Forza 4 and Kinect as if their lives depended on it.

XRider3529d ago

Nice trolling, but since you do it 24/7 you better be good at it.

blackburn103529d ago

Nice acting like a [email protected]$$ but if your going to be one you whole life you might as well practice being one all the time.
