Sony Gamers Brag About Exclusives, But Don't BUY Them

And so, my fellow Sony gamers, rather than brag about exclusives, go out and support these hardworking artists, writers, and programmers by actually purchasing the titles they produce. Skip the latest Call of Duty and pick up a copy of the superior Resistance 3, another IP to originate on your Sony console. You don’t need yet another Assassin’s Creed, so give inFamous 2 or Demon Souls a try.

They brag, But don't buy games? Get out everyone's pockets. You don't know who buys what and who don't.

R3 is incredible so far.

And I hope people buy it! He's right...let's SUPPORT the peeps that make great exclusive games :)

Vojkan4467d ago

yes R3 is great so far.
he is right. Most of PSN buddies I have are level 5, 6. PS3 fanboys on N4G don't buy games, they watch videos, play betas and demos and think they are hardcore.

Lol, nice article. So far....

Gran Turismo 5 - 6.01 million
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (PS3) - 5.50 million
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots(PS3) - 5.15 million
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PS3) - 4.43 million
LittleBigPlanet (PS3) - 4.29
God of War III (PS3) - 3.66
Resistance: Fall of Man (PS3) - 3.77
MotorStorm (PS3) - 3.66

The 360 list is right above the PS3 list. You might be surprised when you go over it.

Thanks to charzard trolling I have to repost this.

Generally speaking not every owner of the system will buy said game when it comes out. The ones that brag about the exclusives usually ARE the ones who buys them.

Also, the bigger the user base is the more diverse the gamers are so no way you will sell your game to every person who bought the system. It isnt that hard to understand really.

If it helps, look at it like this. People who bought a wii bought it for the games and the novelty of the controls. People who bought a 360 bought it for the games. NOT everyone who bought a ps3 bought it for the games. That is the risk you take making a system that does everything because not everyone buys it for the same purpose.

I buy the games I want. they could be exclusive or multi but I do buy them. I dont buy all of the exclusives just the ones that appeal to me.

aquamala4467d ago

How about just support good games? Only single-console owning fanboys care so much about exclusives.

jimineyscrickets4467d ago

The Authors real points:

"To really drive the point home, the last two installments of Call of Duty have sold almost as many copies, ON PS3 ALONE, as Gran Turismo 5, Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain, God of War III, Killzone 3, inFamous 2, and Demon Souls combined.

And so, my fellow Sony gamers, rather than brag about exclusives, go out and support these hardworking artists, writers, and programmers by actually purchasing the titles they produce. Skip the latest Call of Duty and pick up a copy of the superior Resistance 3, another IP to originate on your Sony console. You don’t need yet another Assassin’s Creed, so give inFamous 2 or Demon Souls a try."

Everybody is nerd-raging about this stupid article...and they keep clicking the link and posting comments. Duh?! If you are so nerd-raging against this, why is everyone making the story huge?

I can't stop chuckling over the irony. :D

Getowned4467d ago (Edited 4467d ago )

I don't buy every exclusive just the games i want to play.out of all ps3 exclusives i only own Deams souls,Uncharted 1&2,Moterstorm,infamouse,s ocom4,killzone 2,warhawk,The fight lights out and gow1&2 and soon white knight chronicles 2, and uncharted 3 also waiting on starhawk and Twisted Metal to release...i was thinking of geting GT5 but im unsure about it.

Peppino74467d ago

I bought it and I love exclusives. I show multiplat games love too tho.

Biggest4467d ago

I like how the comparison says "I didn't post crap like Wii Sports" while having Kinect Sports holding down the 360. That does suck for the PS3 owners bragging about games they don't buy. I personally own most of the exclusives, but not because they're exclusives. I like games that I like.

nycredude4467d ago

I buy games I want to play and I deem worth my money, not JUST exclusives! I have exactly 102 bluray games and 35 psn games, not to mention the games I had for the 360 and wii before I sold them. PLUS at least 35 games on the pc!

just because YOUR buddies are at level 5 and 6 doesn't mean everyone is at that level. Almost all of my buddies are above level 12.

AngryTypingGuy4467d ago (Edited 4467d ago )

I literally just got done beating Uncharted 2. If you're a PS3 owner and you don't play that game, you're crazy! That game is a work of art! Can't wait for UC3!

He may not know who buy what but the NDP, Chart-Track and Media Create certainly do. Those are all sources he cited in the story.

ASTAROTH4467d ago (Edited 4467d ago )

I AGREE with this guy. I havent bougth R3 yet but its first on my list. I have give it time because my backlog is extensive. I have bougth almost every PS3 exclusive so far and I have 127 PS3 games and 70 PSN games. I love my exclusives and my PS3. I also have some 360 exclusives and a couples of the best Wii games too. I really enjoy gaming but I have more games than time to play them. . . so R3 have to wait for .. . ohh my for before I buy Gears 3, BF3, Batman Arkham City, RAGE, Zelda:Skyward and the best o them all UNCHARTED 3!!. Skyrim looks amazing too but I dont have time to spend 100 hours on that game. Too bad for me but I will put the PS3 exclusives as priority in my purchases. I also want ICO/SOTC and GOW origins... WHOO!!! to many great games... wow!!

pixelsword4467d ago (Edited 4467d ago )


I have never even heard of any of those Wii games except Skyward Sword; so they can't be that good.

Thatguy-3104467d ago

I have to agree with this guys opinion...it baffles me when exclusives like uncharted, infamous sell less than a million in its first week..Sony's exvlusives are top notch!!! Don't see what holds back people from buying them.

ethan4467d ago

Well I can't speak for everyone, but the thing holding me back is money. I would love to own a lot more of these great games, but unfortunately between college, bills, and other necessities of life, I am forced to choose the select few that I want the most.

bloodybutcher4467d ago

i was buying every game i wanted(just for ps3) before but right now i cannot.so i rented a few and now i had to make a choice which one i really want to buy.so i´m going with Dark Souls,not even ps3 exclusive.

Gray-Fox-Type04467d ago

so true, some games from PS3 deserve much more sales but unfortunate they do not sell well , i guess PS3 fanboys rather talk about it lol

TyrionL4467d ago

It's not that, it's just the vocal community on these forums make up a tiny percentage of gamers out there. Most the people I know with a PS3 don't even know what Uncharted is, but you can bet they'll have the next Call of Duty. I let at least 5 people borrow my GOW3, just so they could see what they were missing. Most gamers out there don’t keep up with this stuff the way most people that frequent this site do, and they for sure don’t get emotional about who bought what exclusive and what system is “DA BESTESSS”. This site is not a good way to judge the general consensus of the gamers out there. If the real world was like the majority of N4G users would lead you to believe then no one would own a 360 and all PS3 exclusives would sell 40+ million one day one. Hell I’ve been labeled a 360 fanboy before and I bet I buy more PS3 games then the people that would call me that. It’s just I am a gamer and like games no matter what system I have to play them on. I just really hope people understand that these annoying fanboy on this site are insignificant in the grand scheme of things.

bloodybutcher4467d ago (Edited 4467d ago )

agree with tyrion, i for example lended U2 to a friend of mine to let him see how good this game is.tll then he played only fifa and cod.

Dante1124467d ago

@ TyrionL

I've been called an PS3 fanboy (for saying I enjoy the PS3 exclusives and playing on PSN), I've been called a 360 fanboy (For saying that Alan Wake didn't suck). I've had Heavy Rain and Final Fantasy 13 spoiled for me and death threats sent for correcting a guy on a gaming subject on the N4G forums who I literally played with on Live. My point being is that no side of fanboy is worst or better on N4G. Both seem equally bad to me.

TyrionL4467d ago

@ Dante112
OK, well this topic was about PS3 fanboys, so when the topic is about the other ones I will write a wall of text on them as well. I was just staying on topic unlike you.

Dante1124467d ago (Edited 4467d ago )

@ TyrionL

Sony Gamers = Sony Fanboys? Way to generalize an entire group. The more you know....

Edit: In case you try to stealth edit lol.

And articles like these get approved? Who's this site run by? And if it's not by the people who run this site then who run this site and has given power to people to approve these type of articles? I guess that's what happens when fanboys have power on a gaming website. The next article to be approved is going to be a 360 shot...I'll put money on it.

Evetssteve4467d ago

What's wrong with this article? Why shouldn't it get approved. It's a valid point he makes and also provided numbers to back it up. Just because you don't like it and can't accept the truth it shouldn't get approved??

Corax4467d ago (Edited 4467d ago )

I dont like, yes. Can't accept the truth? What truth? Is there numbers on how many PS3 owners brag about exclusives and then don't buy the game? I would like to see the statistics on this. There are many gamers that talk about games and don't buy them. Again where are the numbers for that? I decided after look at some more Dead Island videos I'm no going to get that game. Valid points? what point does he make? Alot of PS3 adopters picked up the PS3 because at the time it was the cheapest Blu-ray player on the market aside from that Sony needs to go back to its RPG roots. Not every PS owner is a shooter fan most of the PS3 owners came from the PS2 probably the best console to date for RPGs which is really sorta disappointing this gen. The classics, God of war, Gran Turismo are great games that did well in sales. Killzone came back from the PS2 era and is really doing pretty well for a comeback for a game that was claimed 'failed' also why doesnt he mention Warhawk? Another game that came from the PSone era and did great in sales and also is an exclusive and there are plenty more that he doesn't name how about naming Little big planet?. And then what I really hate about this article is that he compares an multiplatform game COD to exclusives. TO RECAP his ending on this article. Gran Turismo 5 did great, "Uncharted 2" why did he just say Uncharted 2? why not Uncharted series so far?, Heavy Rain did ok I liked the game but games like this are gems that are great but go underground, God of War III did great, Killzone 3 i liked this game but like KZ2 feel better they just needed to make the controls tight felt like a delay reaction, "InFamous 2" again why not Infamous series, and Demon Souls this game didnt have NO advertisement what soever I'm actually lucky to hear about this game vs The COD series. This article is just retarded. not very well though out. your move sir

Evetssteve4467d ago

@ Corax

First of all, don't write the equivalent of the great wall of china as a response and expect someone to actually read the entire thing and then at the very end say "your move".

Second of all you refuse to think logically. You are asking the author to prove the unprovable because it would take hundreds of hours and probably a lot of cash to do the actual research on this to provide numbers that don't need to be provided in the first place.

It's called the eyeball test. Go on any number of message boards and read what undoubtedly you already know. It's full of people like you backing up your precious army of exclusives that you probably don't own and don't ever plan on owning. LOL he asks for numbers on this.
