I am standing at 96 games, with 45 of them being Xbox 360 exclusives that I own. The rest are multiplatform, and I am looking forward to 2012 soooo much, as having a BACK LOG of games is a good thing, especially when they are all genres.

    Mass Effect 3 was my number one title for next year, but that got trumped by Tomb Raider and the new Bioshock. Still getting ME3, but the excitement when down 2 notches because of those two games
    Wow nice. Are they all disc games? I think for next year I am most excited for Prototype 2, Twisted Metal, The Last Guardian, Bioshock and Starhawk. On the next level of anticipation is Tomb Raider, Mass Effect 3, Aliens: Colonial Marines...actually there is a $#@!load of games but I wont go on listing em.

    There are still 2011 titles I will need to get (Skyrim and Dark Souls). But yeah, exclusive games are like the caramel sauce that covers 3rd party ice cream.

    PS3 is associated with more than Blu-ray, it is associated with, and finds its identity in going to great lengths to support their console with a lot of exclusive content and they have gone on record saying this.

    I never said that they weren't doing well, they just don't interest me. I personally feel that exclusives aren't that big of of a deal. Seems that the ones who always throw them out there as ultra important and the be-all-to-end-all are PS3 fanboys.

    3rd party ? yes mostly. with the amount of studios that sony (and to a much smaller extent MS) own no. there will always be relevant exclusives.

    Perhaps for you. But to the average person out there they have no idea what you are talking about. You have to remember that the people that post on internet forums make up a VERY small percentage of gamers. Maybe that accounts for the not-so-robust sales of most of the PS3 exclusives.

    I think I'd rather have 3-4 great exclusives per year than a ton of exclusives of varying degrees ranging from great to meh. At least I wouldn't have to wage through the crap to find that diamond.

    I dont think you can speak for "the average person out there". You can make assumptions to back up your point of view however. I think the average person out there can stroll down the PS3 isle of their local games shop and see a healthy selection of games aside from the 3rd party offerings, and they can have the luxury of variety.

    I'm with Dennis on this one. Whilst exclusives are great I don't think they are the be all and end all of gaming. I've not bought a single exclusive game since I got U2, unless you count Pokemon games.

    Exclusives are what sells consoles... period. You don't walk into a store and see the same game on two different systems and choose which system to buy. You look at what games each has to offer that the other doesn't have. Exclusives dead? NO. Absolutely not. Some people might buy a system based on price alone, but generally, the principle behind exclusive games is to sell a system.

    In this regard, you have to go with the PS3 for the most variety in their exclusive line-up. If you're into controllerless motion controls, obviously the 360 is where you'd need to go. It's about what each console offers vs what the others offer in terms of games, cost, etc.

    And even that isn't 100% true. Both PS3 and Wii have had quite a few 3rd party exclusives this year.

    A simple way to understand this concept is to take out all the exclusive games and realize that now you have less games to choose from.

    Sounds like a damage control article by a 360 fanboy. imo

    but yes, if they're exclusive or not doesn't make the game inferior, I say exclusiveness,brand, and recognition are important

    This fear-motivated agenda question will be answered and buried in a couple years with the next generation. Sony has 14 first party studios working on PS4 launch titles, not including how many contracts with 2nd party studios for exclusive launch titles. What does MS have? There is no way they suddenly buy their way into a dozen first party studios by then, much less have those studios working on titles that would be ready by launch. This is why this notion that MS could somehow ignore that issue by launching a new console in late 2012 is so stupid and laughable. Launch a new console hardware with no launch titles except for just multi-plat 3rd party titles? Ludicrous is too serious of a word to describe the idiocy of that idea.

    Yey and neigh.

    Exclusives are good as they do set apart the games on either system but ,for me, I've had my best game experiences come from multiplatform games this generation.

    No exclusive game from any platform has given me the same enjoyment I've had from games such as Assassins Creed, Mafia 2, the Mass Effect franchise, BF, MW, F1:2010/2011, Bulletstorm the list is endless with multiplatform games that trump exclusive games in everyday possible, for me anyway.

    For every good exclusive game there is always an equally good or better multiplatform title in my eyes.

    If they launch before the next PS, then all the games will be exclusive, third-party or not.

    Even if they launch on the PS3, Xbox 360 and the Wii-U?
    It's funny that in this day in age people can steal as long as they have a reason too. Even if that reason is created by the thieves themselves.

    WTH? Sony console 1st party are never going to be multi-platform, they are the definition of the word exclusive.

    There are going to be at least 14 PS4 exclusive launch titles from 14 AAA first party studios. Obfuscate as you see the need fit, as usual.

    Would be cool but I highly doubt Sony would congest the launch line up with so many 1st party games, it would make little sense

    Diversity yes, but they could conflict with one another. Just have them release so there's a nice continous flow of games

    That'd be pretty dumb for Sony to do that. I guarantee that Sony won't have 14 AAA games launch with the PS4, from first party studios lol. Those studios will be spreading the games out from launch, through the first 12 months of the console. Obfuscate? Lol.
