Why do Sony fans keep boasting about PS3's exclusive 2013 lineup?

Since when does a game have to be a system seller in order for it to be "good"?

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
God Of War: Ascension
Beyond: Two Souls
Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time
The Last Of Us

5 games is not that impressive.
Ni No Kuni is a niche game and probably won't be a huge seller
God Of War is just more of the same but with rubbish looking multiplayer
Beyond will probably be as boring as Heavy Rain
Sly Cooper is not a system seller and done to death now. Does anyone care?
The Last Of Us looks good but will probably be disappointing like all the Uncharted games.

None of these games are system sellers! in fact I cannot think of any Sony game that you would call a system seller.

All of Microsoft's big 4 exclusives, Halo, Gears Of War, Fable and Forza are all system sellers.
Nintendo has system sellers too with Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Mario Kart etc.

I bet Gears of War: Judgment will outsell all of those games combined because it will be an amazingly fun game like all the previous games were.


I'll take a few new IP's over a bunch of rehashes anyday


Let me guess...Live Arcade games don't count right?

Here's your answer TC....it's because they think that if they hype up ps3 exclusives....360 exclusives will somehow disappear.




It doesn't work. ;)



if you consider XBLA a reason to have a 360...have at it...personally I am looking for actual "this gen" games, not games that pass for last gen. I am a 360 only owner and think the 360 fails. The only thing it does right is play multiplats better.

If you like Kinect, pointless apps, xbla & rehashes...please, by all means feel satisfied. Personally I want some new "this gen" exclusives. For a console that has so much potential, such a shame people are satisfied with the garbage that is XBLA. There are some decent games don't get me wrong, but they definitely are not what people bought a 360 for. It's basically 90% shovelware with a few decent games in the mix.

Going through a list of games and decrying each one is not that impressive or original.

Support your developer. Buy new.

The only game I'm interested in is The Last of us. But not enough to buy a PS3 :P

Agreed kinda sorta...There are however a few, if I got a PS3, that I would go back & play for sure (Heavy Rain, Heavenly Sword, etc)...But, I can't pull the trigger to purchase a console just for a few games , not to mention the downgrade in online service they provide. I could almost bite the bullet with the fact that multiplats aren't as pretty and the handful of exclusives, but the unreliability of the online service really steers me away the most from the console more so than anything..not to mention the console itself isn't really all that aesthetically pleasing to look at...Just looks clunky.

This is why today's gamers are intolerable.

While you whine....I'll enjoy the tons of games on all my consoles. There are plenty of new IPs this gen. Just because you don't care for them doesn't mean they don't exist. It sure must suck to be a such a close minded gamer.


You should probably find a new hobby.

The online is not as good as 360 any game i play online i buy for the 360. But lets not forget you pay for xbox live hence you get a service. Also the ps3 is a blu-ray player which is one of the reasons i bought mine. I cant tell you how highly I rate uncharted 2 and 3 if you like action games which is why Last of us is second to only GTA 5 for me being excited.

Uncharted is another I'd love to play...I was thinking about picking up one of the cheaper 160GB consoles simply just for the single player games...Have had one sitting in my amazon cart for awhile now...like i said, for whatever reason, I can't pull the trigger on it yet...It'll get to the point where I buy it simply because I am tired of seeing it in my cart...lol

The only game I want on that list is The Last of Us. That looks incredible

Also God of War I guess, but since I have only played the first two I can stand missing this one.

Yep, close minded because I want quality over quantity. The very thing that I fell in love with MS over the first gen was because they didn't put out nearly as much shovelware as the PS2...which is essentially what they are doing this gen. If I want dated games, I'll fire up my retro consoles. When I want to play this gen games, I will fire up this gens console. If i wanted shovelware, I'd buy a Wii or a WiiU and be done with it.
