MISSING: Playstation 3 exclusives

Have you been wondering why our Playstation 3 friends have lost so many exclusive games? Think about it, Grand Theft Auto and Assassin's Creed are both shinning examples. Also, why has the Xbox 360 wrapped up exclusives from third party developers like Bioshock and Winning Eleven? It's quite simple actually, Sony's lead man Ken Kutaragi dragged his feet for far to long. Mr. Kutaragi couldn't give developers the thumbs up for exclusivity and Microsoft played the roll of annoying best friend, constantly bugging developers to flock to their console. And look at the result, we've got great games coming. Good job Microsoft, third party exclusive titles are butter and cream and we're all anticipating Assassin's Creed. Oh the joy.

1. Why must this site continually go on a negative campaign blitz against the PS3? Why can't we just come here to read news about the 360. I agree this is 360-related, but why the hate?

2. @1 Because the title is Xbox 360 FANBOY. Fanboys are generally known to hate on other systems. Not that a site solely should, but if it's a site about Xbox 360, it's quite fine to take jabs at the other systems. If you don't like it, go read some other non-biased gaming site (good luck in finding one).

3. It isn't hating to post news about Sony losing exclusives. This is great news for Xbox360 owners, and horrible news for PS3 owners (however few there are right now).

This was a major misstep by Sony. 360 fanboys should rejoice, not because Sony is losing exclusives, but because we will be getting Assassin's Creed, GTAIV, BioShock, Winning Eleven, etc. Now there are rumors that Square doesn't want to help Sony (opening the door for more Final Fantasy and other square games), and rumors (however crazy) that Microsoft is courting Konami's Metal Gear Solid.

If Forza 2 is as good as it looks, Gran Turismo isn't as big of an exclusive, especially since you still can't crash a freaking car in GT.

I'm all for leveling the playing field. Especially if it means that I'll be playing Metal Gear Solid 4, and not with a SIXAXIS.

4. Sony's mistake with exclusives has been happening since playstation 1, it's just now cought up with them.
Look at the big exclusive for gamecube, wii, xbox, xbox 360.
Nintendo you have Metroid, Zelda, Mario
Microsoft you have Halo, Knights of the old Republic, Gears of War.
These are the games that made people buy the console.
With Sony you had Metal Gear, Grand theft auto, Final Fantasy
Whats the difference? Nintendo and Microsoft are the publishers/developers of their big exclusives, impossible to loose the exclusivity.

Why didnt the ps2 3rd party big games go multi platform then? (you could argue they did, only took longer to get to xbox) Because now, the BIG exlusives like metal gear and grandtheft auto are easily costing millions to make- and the PS3 simply dosent have the instal base for the companies to turn a profit. PS2 had a huge instal base thus little reason to go multi platform

5. That's how sony first killed sega then nintendo. they always bough companies or pay them so they could build a monopoly and kill the competition. I hope the rumors that Microsoft is buying Capcom or Namco are true.

7. Cause Microsoft is frickin smart...that's why were doing it right! They know how to treat their people and take care of them. I will gladly support the Xbox because they know that I like to game first, watch movies second. Sony is now part of the Sixxaxis of Evil.

8. I'm shocked! Shocked, I tell you, that you have not covered the Burger King games yet! I have all three, and I have to say that they are worth picking up for $4.00 a pop-- Especially Pocket Bike Racer, which is Mario Kart in all but name and specific characters/scenarios. It's pretty cool when you can get a full-featured Mario Kart clone for four bucks, and PLAY ONLINE with it, to boot!

Sneak King is kind of weird. Think of it as being like Tony Hawk meets Splinter Cell meets your bad dreams. It's a good game, but the whole concept is just strange and creepy. You sneak around, and you must deliver food to people without being seen, and you get points for doing it with a "flourish" which is indicated by a power-meter that requires timed button presses. The best flourish is downright weird and spastic. The whole game is surreal.

Big Bumpin' is good, better online than single player, and more like a mini game than the others (it still LOOKS quite nice, though).

Twelve bucks + a value meal for three good Xbox 360 games, and you guys are spending your time dogging the PS3? Forget about that buggy piece of crap, and get thyself to Burger King!!!
