    Huh? You prefer 3rd party due to "quality"??? The only reason I'll buy 3rd party this early is because Sony's 1st party launch games will be added to the IGC just like uncharted ga and gravity daze on vita

    It's equal for me. 3rd parties have the IPs I love and Sony has the bar raising developers who will make jaw dropping games with IPs I love (ND, GG, SP).

    Definitely First Party. Third party games are built on the lowest common denominator.

    I rather have a game that takes advantage of the hardware. First or Second party are usually better in quality.

    If you dont include Indies as 3rd Party i would say 3rd parties make 5% of the games im interested in.

    Right now im
    60% Indie
    35% 1st Party (Sony)
    5% 3rd Party

    Im much more interested in games i see on kickstarter than i am for games by 90% of 3rd party developers.

    I get both, but overall I much prefer First Party games. More often than not they are quality games that a gamer would be silly to miss.

    This gen has been mostly 1st party since 3rd party had trouble making quality games cause of Cell, however that should all change with the PS4.

    Third party just has more great games for obvious reasons, but I can't live without first party either.

    Doesn't matter whatsoever to me. I'll buy any game for its gameplay, which the past couple of years has generally been steered towards anything that's decently original or indie.

    For me, I like it all. exclusives are great and so are 3rd party games. look at the battlefield series and many other games. It's all good.

    First party games all the way, specially on a Sony console platform. Sony is guaranteed to pump out at least 3-4 stellar first party must buy games per annum, this year for example Last of Us, God of War A, Beyond 2 souls, Gran Turismo 6, Killzone shadow fall, Driveclub. Which is a lot more than certain other console manufacturers.

    Third parties have their place... but aside from MGS, Battlefield or GTA, are not really must buys.
    Maths is biased! It keeps telling me the PS4 is 50% more powerful than XboxOne!
    Great song, should have more views :'(

    No offense, but you do not know what quality is. 3rd Party is more in association with quantity. 1st Party is usually associated with quality, mainly because there is a dedicated system that the 1st party devs are able to fully tap into; its not something made for all types of formats or console, just one.

    If I was to think back on this generation and some of my favourite games then 3rd party wins for me. The only exclusives that i truly enjoyed this generation has been the Uncharted franchise and MGS4. Everything else was outshone by 3rd party games, for me.

    The best games I have played technically and creatively/game wise were all first party outside of a few. 3rd party games use crappy engines a lot (Unreal) and my old favorites like FF,MGS (with 5 maybe?) and so on have all turned to average/mediocre games. Really not many 3rd party games impress me as they are all made to be mainstream which has lead to a lack of quality in favor of accessibility which will plague MGS5. Its the GTA/COD affect.
