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

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

IGN discussed it in their latest 'Beyond' podcast as well.


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.


Thats a stupid comparison, GT which was out since the ps1. Thats like comparing all Mario games to GT.

Truth of the matter is that GT is the ps3s biggest exclusive and it still didn't push a lot of units.

Hmmm can't decide if troll topic or not.

Anyway, Halo is the worst FPS ever made (the whole series) and I have never played a Smash Bros game.

PS3 has Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid 4, Heavy Rain, Journey, Killzone, Sly Cooper AND God of War. All of these are 10/10 exclusives for me.

The other exclusives that interest me:

360: Alan Wake, Gears of War (to a small degree)
Wii: Nothing. Literally nothing.

Alan Wake is nice. It's a shame nobody bought it. Give it a try if you ever get the chance. Can't recommend Gears though.

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.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "list." In what sense, exactly? If you're talking about listing upcoming exclusives or available exclusives, then I see people listing Fable, Crackdown and Dance Central all the time.

Just take a quick look at this topic:

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/927749-xbox-360/63807681

Within the first six posts I see Fable, Crackdown and several other niche 360 exclusives being listed. You clearly must not pay much attention to the 360 board. Not surprising, given your fixation on Sony fanboys.

Hell even the xbox live arcade titles were better than any ps3 retail title this year.

And I'm sure all of those were huge sellers, right? Ya know, since apparently a game isn't worth mentioning if it doesn't sell.

Is someone paying you to continue to regurgitate the same crap that isn't even true over and over again?

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.



LMAO.
Yes it does.

1) Lifetime sales:
-HALO lifetime sales in 6 games = 46 million
-Gran Turismo lifetime sales in 6 games = 68 million.

2) Bold Part in your post:
-HALO 3 release date = September 25, 2007
-Gran Turismo 5 release date = November 24, 2010

Keep lying. Over 3 years difference. In fact, add 3 years of sales to Gran Turismo 5 and then talk.
Oh, and Gran Turismo 5 has sold around 9 millions + its demo SOLD around 6 millions. Never neglect.

I'm sure you'll either go away or try to save face by ommiting stuff from GT's point, so don't try.
Bye bye!

-HALO 3 lifetime sales = 11.5 million in 62 months so far.
-Gran Turismo 5 lifetime sales = 9 million in 24 months so far + 5.8 million of its 29.99$-39.99 DEMO.


1) PS3 sales got tripled in japan and Europe at the time of GT5's release and almost doubled in USA.
Plus, the fact that 360 (with its HALO) had a 10 million lead when PS3 wasn't out on the market yet, and then PS3 (with its Gran Turismo) has sold 8 million consoles more than 360, speaks for which game(s) moved more consoles.

2) Gran Turismo 2 and HALO had a year apart in release dates. So, even if we exclude GT1's sales (which would make GT participate with 5 games in the debate while HALO has 6) then GT > HALO by 12 million sales.
Now even if we exclude GT2's sales too
(which would make GT participate with 4 games in the debate while HALO has 6), GT > HALO by 3 million sales.

Keep lying.

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.


Popularity does not equal quality, ever, in any scenario. So find a more compelling argument then sheep buy it because other sheep bought it when it was being advertised. And fyi I have played halo.

Nintendo has Super Smash Bros.

Microsoft has Halo

These games both have quality and quantity that Sony exclusives can only dream of. These games are basically played forever, until the next installment is released, there are whole dedicated communities for them and they are by far the ultimate party or multiplayer games.

Sales, Reviews and popularity wise they also completely annhilate anything Sony has to offer.

Sony has nothing like this or anything that even comes close to it. No I'm not talking about decent games you play once and then everyone forgets about within a year or two. I'm talking about timeless games like Halo and Smash Bros. I'm saying Sony has nothing on THAT level.


We have Tales. (all the newer one mind you). We have Monster Hunter. (Ps2 originally up to psp then they switched, but japan DID get the MH P3rd HD *still jelly*) God of war as a Series it's great. Especially 2, DAT plottwist. We have Metal Gear, that alone is worth the console. White Knight Chronicles 2 is a good game, it's basically a FF14 with a morphing system (lol). And Demon Souls.
Digitally we also got recently, One Piece, which for anyone else is just a Dynasty game, but if you see the anime of read the manga you will appreciate this game for all it's worth.
Also Halo 4 is just a shooter with aliens. Just like Gears of War. Both are shooters just different styles. One is 1st person, and the other is 3rd person. Wow.....
