    PS3 vs Xbox 360: Exclusives

    Which console has the better quality exclusives? In other words, if a new PS3 exclusive is announced and a new Xbox 360 exclusive is annouced, which one gets 1. the most hype and preorders and 2. the better review scores and reception?

    Let's look at two third person shooters created this gen, Gears of War and Uncharted.

    The first Gears of War metacrtic score is 94 out of 100 and user score is 8.4.
    The first Uncharted metacritic score is 88 out of 100 and user score is 8.6.

    Gears of War wins in regard to overall reviews and reception. It probably wins in the preorder and hype category as well.

    Let's look at two later gen exclusives, Heavy Rain and Alan Wake.

    Heavy Rain metacrtic score is 87 out of 100 and 6.9 user score.
    Alan Wake metacritic score is 83 out of 100 and a 7.9 user score.

    Alan Wake takes the pie in regards to reviews.

    I know this way of evaluating has holes in it. I should have included the awards won by the new IPs and preorder and hype numbers.

    I would have made this thread better, but I don't have the time right now. I already typed all this up so I will post it.

    What are your thoughts? How would YOU come up with a conclusion which console has the better exclusives? Which one do you think has the better exclusives?

    There is no absolute. No console has the better exclusives. If you are going by metacritic, then a look at the exclusive titles from 80 upwards shows that Sony has more, but in general the games are more or less the same. It just depends on your tastes.

    I think the PS3 clearly has a better selection of exclusives.

    PS3:
    God of War series
    Heavy Rain
    Little Big Planet 1, 2
    Uncharted 1,2,3
    Gran Turismo 5
    inFamous 1,2
    Ratchet & Clank series
    Mod Nation Racers
    The Last of Us
    BEYOND
    LBP Karting
    PS All-Stars Battle Royale
    Sly 4
    Twisted Metal

    Xbox 360:

    Forza 3,4
    Fable 2,3
    Halo series
    Gears of War series
    Alan Wake
    Mass Effect 1
    Viva Pinata series

    Does the Xbox 360 have anything coming out in 2013 that is not for the Kinect? Any new IP's?

    I only ever go on about exclusives as an aspect of product support. I have more respect for Sony because they have a higher output but the quality is totally subjective. Metacritic is good to judge the general critical reception of a game but each title on all systems speaks individually to the gamer. Quality is graphics? Game play mechanics? QA? Innovation? Both systems have great titles, that's the bottom line, Sony's line up is a bit more diverse and caters to more genres, but that's about it.

    The 360 has a lot of low-lower profile exclusives that I quite enjoy, these are the ones I have that haven't been mentioned yet:


    WarTech: Senko No Ronde
    Tales of Vesperia
    Lost Odyssey
    Condemned (1)
    Bullet Witch
    Deadly Premonition - god damn brilliant amazing game
    Deathsmiles
    Dodonpachi Resurrection
    Crackdown
    Crackdown 2
    Fatal Inertia
    Infinite Undiscovery
    Left 4 Dead
    Ninety-Nine Nights
    Risen


    But yeah, without turning this into phat list warz, I must say there are a decent amount of exclusives for the 360, sine at first glance there appears to be very little. The problem is, the ball has been dropped and there is practically none coming out :/


    Overall though, I do feel PS3 has better exclusives, there are more of them and the quality and diversity is there too - which is important.

    Gears Judgement in 2013 isnt Kinect. In 2013 we'll propably be hearing about the next Xbox anyway. New IPs? No. And what big exclusives does Sony have for holiday 2012?

    Very true. Even though 360 has fewer exclusives the ones they do have I really enjoy. And PS3 has a few more in number that I also enjoy but there are also quite a few that just dont appeal to me. I actually enjoy alot more of the 3rd party games that are out there. Skyrim for example is my favorite game this gen.

    Alot but not all. No Gears 2 or 3, propably no Gears Judgement, no Forza, no Forza Horizon, no Halo Reach and most likely no Halo 4. (wow, MS needs new IPs. lol).

    Games like Halo and Forza are some of their more popular titles. They probably don't want to risk losing potential sales for the Xbox 360.

    PS3 has most of the new IP's coming out next year. I do not want any big exclusives coming out this holiday because of all the other games coming out at that time.

    I think the PS3 has a better lineup. The 360 has some fantastic IPs like Gears of War and Halo, but the PS3 lineup is more consistently great.
    Thanks to Kwesnoth for the sig!

    To be honest, nobody is going to agree with any list posted. People already have their minds set, no matter how big or small any list is.

    So less is more now? lol I like having a wider variety of choices this holiday. Just like in 2013 Sony will propably be the one to give me more choices. And whether or not you have plenty of games to play still doesn't change the fact that Sony has no big exclusives for holiday 2012.

    Outside of Halo, Gears, Fable, and Forza there are no real solid ongoing series.

    244 exclusives listed here that are not on any other platform:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Categor...360-only_games

    That list doesn't include any of the 2500 indie exclusive games

    198 exclusives listed for the PS3 that are not on any other platform:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Categor...n_3-only_games

    Also keep in mind that the list of Xbox 360 exclusives above do not include the Microsoft platform exclusives (Microsoft Windows/Microsoft Xbox).

    I am still looking for the facts behind our PS3 having the most exclusives. The PS3 has the LEAST by a landslide actually. Not that it matters, because quantity isn't as important as quality, which they both achieve in spades.

    The PS3 has a better variety. There are a few 360 exclusives I enjoy though.

    The PS3 has a ton of exclusives, way more than the 360, so you have to give the nod to the PS3.

    As opposed to.......

    I mean, what exactly are the solid ongoing series on the Ps3?
    Killzone took a nose dive, Resitence is finsihed, Motorstorm for PS3 is finished, GT doesnt even count as a series as its only had one release,maybe infamous and Uncharted might make a come back......

    Thats would be 8 more, not a ton.
