Exclusive PS3 games that ‘Stand-Out’

Exclusive PS3 games that ‘Stand-Out’

Owning a console takes a huge amount of dedication, as you have to take the rough with the smooth, for the most part your chosen console will reward you, but there are times when they will not. The biggest issue that face gamers are the choices of games that are made available to you, and while most titles are multi-platform, there are a few that are exclusive, and there has been a huge debate over the years on this very subject.

A recent article has looked at some exclusive PS3 games that they feel the Xbox 360 needs. While we think it silly to think Xbox 360 owners would be desperate for exclusive PS3 games, we thought it’s worth looking at what they had on their list, and to think about anything missing and what the Xbox 360 has in return when it comes to exclusives that “stand out”. The list is an interesting one, and a handful of titles do stand out, but do Xbox 360 gamers really care, as they do have some great titles of their own? Microsoft’s console is gifted with one of the best racing car games (Forza 4) but Motorstorm Apocalypse takes this genre to another level. There are a huge number of games that help to show off the quality of the Xbox 360, but you have to wonder what Wipeout HD would look like?

One of the most popular games for children on the PS3 is LittleBigPlanet 2, and some gamers believe that this would do very well on the 360. We’ve spoken to some Xbox fans and and they love LBP, although they’d never want to buy a PS3, and we understand this game is an acquired taste. The top four PS3 exclusive games that have been suggested in the above article include Infamous 2, Killzone 3, God of War III and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. Having played three of these games, we know what they’re talking about when it comes to how good they are, in our opinion, although to say Xbox 360 owners really need them sounds a little crazy. Do you want these on your Xbox 360?

Depending who you ask, some would suggest that Xbox 360 exclusives are dwindling, but looking at what is on offer in 2012, this could not be further from the truth. A handful that stand out to us are Minecraft, which is due for release on the 360 in Q2 2012. Kinect Star Wars should be with us in the summer and Fable: The Journey, although there is no release date just yet.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was released on the PC back in May of last year, but Xbox 360 users will get to see what all the fuss is about in the first quarter of this year. The final game on our list is Halo 4, which has been a long time coming.

It looks like nothing can take Halo 4 from its crown when that exclusive releases, which looks to be the biggest launch for the Xbox 360 again, unless we see a major surprise from another title this year, although we highly doubt it. Are you looking forward to Halo 4?

Exclusives can sell systems when launched at the right time, you only need to look at the next-gen launch titles and how important they could be to help launch these system. Although certain hardcore fans will never jump ship to another brand, would you?
