I'm really hoping Microsoft pushes harder for exclusives next gen.

At the beginning of this gen, Microsoft had a lot of drive when it came from either getting exclusives or timed exclusives. They also did a great job at getting big series that were mainly Sony exclusive onto the 360. Over time, most of Microsoft's big exclusives just kind of faded into getting PS3 ports down the road. Hell, Mass Effect even made its way after 5 years. I always preferred the 360 to the PS3 but I will admit that Sony has been killing the 360 in exclusives overall in the last few years(Though I love my Halo and Gears more than most of their exclusives)

Outside of already established series(Halo, Gears of War, Forza), has Microsoft had any great exclusives in the last few years? They've been putting their focus on making the 360 a multimedia system and shovel-ware Kinect games(I know there's a few good ones) and kind of lost focus on the 360 on making it the gaming system to have. What kills me is that is seems like they push for timed exclusive DLC more than anything these days which is more than likely being secured by what we pay for Xbox Live.


I've became a PC gamer in the last couple of years so most of my purchases on the 360 are usually console exclusive(PS3 & 360) so it would be really nice to own the next Xbox and PlayStation have have a nice variety of games on each system that is not available on the other. I understand the multiplatform games are generally more profitable but it doesn't mean that Microsoft shouldn't try to push out a few more new IPs a year.

Yes it does, and two of those three series were established last gen. I would like the end of the next Xbox's lifespan having an additional 7 to 8(games/series) you can add to the list.

Since the 360 has more exclusives than PS3 and Microsoft has more first parties than Sony I am not worried.

All the dominos are falling into place like a house of cards. Checkmate!

Can you list these exclusives? For ****'s and giggles, feel free to include Kinect titles.

The problem is most of those exclusives and development studios aren't worth mentioning. I honestly can't even come up with a top 10 list of great 360 exclusives.

So I agree with TC. This is the one thing MS really needs to focus on going forward. They have a great Arcade service, they've got good tech, a great controller design, good relationships with 3rd party devs thanks to high sales (unlike Nintendo) . . . now they just need to focus on the games.

Right now if you're a PC gamer there's almost no reason to buy a 360 . . . and if MS doesn't change its ways, that'll be true for the 720 as well.

People include arcade games. Can't wait to buy an expensive and powerful next gen console to play some arcade games!

...P.S. Arcade games are great. Pretty sure I don't need a new console to play Super Meat Boy and Limbo though.

The thing about arcade games is most of them are also on Steam. So listing them as exclusives for triple s is pointless.
