Why can't the PS3 get a killer exclusive like Nintendo or Microsoft?

Halo is bigger and sells more than any PS3 exclusive.



Nope. Keep lying.

Gran Turismo sells more than HALO.


No it doesn't.

Halo 3: 18 million

Gran Turismo 5: 9 million

Came around the same time. No excuses, Halo just sells way more.

Not as a franchise it doesn't:
Gran Turismo series: 67.8
Halo Series: 46 Million

Please support the gaming industry that both you and I love by choosing to play your games legally.

Nintendo games get boring really fast.

Xbox games are either multiplat or not of any interest to me.

So your topic is invalid to me.

P.s. - God of War, Infamous, Uncharted, Little Big Planet, Twisted Metal and Metal Gear 4 would like a word with you.

Killer Exclusives and you can only name one for each other system?

How about:

God of War Saga Collection
Uncharted 1-3
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
Infamous 1 and 2
Heavy Rain
Killzone Trilogy Collection

Coming soon:

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale
BEYOND: Two Souls
God of War: Ascension
The Last of Us

Personally, I'd take Sony exclusives over Microsoft and Nintendo any day of the week.


Might wanna add

Valkyria Chronicles
Demon's Souls
Tales of Graces f
Tales of Xillia
Tales of Xillia 2
Yakuza 4, 5

Ni no Kuni
The Last Guardian
Final Fantasy Versus XIII

Nintendo in my opinion is for 13 year olds and under, I will eventually get the Wii U for my daughter, so I can show her the first steps of gaming, like her old man before her (NES, SNES, N64).

Microsoft doesn't interest me at all, Halo is nice sometimes but thats all there is to it.

PS has everything I need from classics to exclusives.

Because Sony has too many good games to spend enough on advertising on one game series, unlike MS and Nintendo.


So they choose to not spend it on any?


No they divide it amongst their games

This might be the dumbest comment I've ever seen in my life.


Only reason halo is a killer app is massive amounts of advertising, it's really quite mediocre.


Yet it sells well months after launch and is one of the top games played online months after launch? Stop lying kiddo we all know you never played a Halo game in your life. Your loss.

Sony is too busy ripping them off.

Once again why do desperate Sony fans love to list games even though they don't sell well. You don't see xbox fans listing Fable, Crackdown, Tenchu Z, Shadow Run , Dance Central, etc. Hell even the xbox live arcade titles were better than any ps3 retail title this year.

All the Halo hate by people who obviously never played it proves one thing, its popular. Something that can't be said for ps3 titles. That is the real moral of the story, ps3 has no stand out titles and ps3 gamers would rather play CoD then their exclusives.

That tells me one thing, that if Halo went multiplatform in some hypothetical world then ps3 fanboys would all of a sudden sing a different tune since they love fpsers too. Not to mention half of the ps3 exclusives are shooters.

Halo will overtake it soon. I think once Halo 2013,2014,2015,2016,2016b,2017 come out it'll have the most sold. Forza should have sold more than GT by now. It probably has.
