Comparing Exclusives: Xbox 360 Vs PS3

This is a carry-over thread from here.

So what do you guys think? Which console has the superior exclusives? Does it matter depend on genre, or does one console overall have better exclusive games?

I always come across as a biased PS3 user, but I really do believe that the PlayStation 3 has better exclusives.

List of PS3 exclusives that I have enjoyed: Infamous series, Resistance series, Killzone series, Uncharted series, LittleBigPlanet, Metal Gear Solid 4, Journey (PSN), God of War, Twisted Metal, and there are others that I am probably forgetting.

When I think of Xbox 360, I mainly think of Halo games, Gears of War, Fable, and Forza. I know there are more, but I don't know them off the top of my head.

I would have a different opinion, of course, if most of the PS3 exclusives sucked. However, I think that most (if not all) of the games listed are good games. Personally, I never cared for Halo, and if I had a 360 I probably wouldn't even buy it. The only 360 exclusives I would buy are Gears of War and maybe Fable.

When it comes down to genre, I think PS3 exclusives have a good variety. God of War, Uncharted, etc. represents the action games. Resistance, Killzone, MAG, etc. is the shooter selection. I guess Gran Turismo 5 represents the racing genre for PlayStation, but I never cared for the games.

As an owner of both consoles I have to agree with Nimbus that the PS3 is the clear winner here. I mean just looking at the variety of genres the exclusives span on the PS3 should be enough to say it has the better of the two. Most of the exclusives on 360 are action/shooter games whereas the PS3 has racing, puzzle, platforming, sports, stealth, and action-adventure. There's essentially something for everybody. That being said, the only games I buy for my PS3 are exclusives due to the fact that they seem to be the most fun/polished versus the multi-plat games which is rightfully so in my opinion.

I also own both consoles, and whilst I am certainly happy that I own both, I have to agree that I think the PS3 has better exclusives. I have certainly enjoyed the Halo games, and had some fun with the first two Gears games. There are certainly some solid Live Arcade exclusive titles as well, such as Dishwasher Vampire Smile to give a recent example. But most of my standout moments from this generation clearly come from the PS3 exclusives such as the Uncharted series, God of War, PixelJunk Monsters from the PS Store and so on. Last year especially was a strong showing from the PS3 exclusive wise, whilst the Xbox 360 showing was very poor.

I'm just going to break it down by a few genres I play regularly:

Shooter (first/third): Winner- 360. Why? Gears and Halo are better than any PS3 exclusive shooters I've ever played.

RPG: Winner- Neither. Why? It's really a toss up, you used to be able to say that playstation is the king JRPG's, while xbox has a couple of OK western RPGs, but not much else. As far as JRPGs go, both systems have a couple good exclusives so IMO it's tough to pick a winner off that. If you want to bring Western RPGs into the mix, really the original Mass Effect is really the only notable absence from PS3. The Witcher 2 is released on Tuesday on 360, but not on PS3, although that's really just one game and I can't honestly say that 360 has better RPGs. All of that said, if you really love RPGs, especially JRPG's you've moved to the portable realm anyway.

Action/Adventure: Winner- PS3. Infamous. God of War. Uncharted. 'nuff said.

Downloadables: Winner- tie. This is why I'm particularly glad I have both consoles. PS1/2 Classics are absolutely awesome, and on the other end of the spectrum XBLA has a ton of indie games, many for only a dollar or two, that are really interesting (at least for a few hours). It's difficult for me to say that "Classic gaming is far more important to me than indie games," simply because while those indie games may overall be really, really bad for the most part, every now then a real gem comes out like Super Meat Boy, or 'Splosion Man.

Overall- I would say it really depends on what you're into especially when you start looking into exclusives. I've said before that I play my 360 far more than my PS3, and that simply remains to be because of the controller. Maybe if the PS3 kept the boomerang controller design I wouldn't even own a 360

I don't own an Xbox 360 - but a couple of my friends own both so I have played most of the Xbox 360 exclusives.

I can safely say that I much prefer the PS3 exclusives. Especially seeing as I don't give a damn about shooters.

Demon's Souls, LBP, Uncharted, MLB The Show, Valkyrie, Infamous, ModNation.. just to name a few of the exclusives that I thoroughly enjoy on PS3.
 
Signature.

I have both and my PS3 seems to just be a heavy expensive paperweight. I haven't logged into my PSN account in over a year. For one the exclusives that came out on the PS3 I didn't really enjoy.

Infamous: Pretty meh

Uncharted: It really didn't pop out to me when I was playing it and I couldn't even finish the first game.
LBP 1-2: I LOVE THEM

God of War 3: While I do love that entire series, 3 seemed to be a huge slap in the face to me. It did look beautiful though >.>

Heavy Rain: Story was great, playing the game to that point however was not.

Resistance-Killzone: Just like any other first person shooter I've ever played

Those are really the only exclusives on PS3 that I can think of, aside from arcade titles, and none of them just really appealed to me. It may be because I've had my Xbox from release and bought a PS3 late into the game. Also I really hate the PS3 controller >.>

Now for the Xbox games that I really enjoyed that were exclusive were:
Viva Pinata 1/2
Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts
Kameo
Amped
Crackdown 1/2
Dead or Alive 4 (even though I hate fighting games)
Tales of Vesperia

There are also a TON of arcade exclusives on the 360 that I really love (Super Meat Boy being the main one I can think of right now) I just really can't remember what all I've purchased.

Also I got sidetracked far too much trying to type everything so I just gave a very small version of my opinion. I really didn't want to go into much detail and explain everything and it may seem I'm nitpicking the PS3 and just fanboying the 360 and that's really not the case.

Although there hasn't been a 360 on-disc exclusive you've liked for years by the looks of your list. Looking at your list though and comparing it to the lists others have posted for PS3 exclusives, you've been playing the wrong games.

Well I did leave out the Gears series along with the Halo series. I can't really say that Xbox has been cranking out up to date exclusives. Maybe I'm not thinking too far into it. Meh, I'm hungry and I'm grilling out. I should probably research before I post but I'm too damn lazy.

I've enjoyed Halo and Gears, but I wouldn't be devastated had I never played them. I didn't like Fable. The first Mass Effect would be a huge miss for me, though.

PS3-wise, there's a lot that I'd like to play. Uncharted would be nice, and I'd probably end up giving MGS, Infamous and Demon's Souls a go.

Overall, I'd PROBABLY prefer the PS3's library, but I like the 360 more as a console.

I haven't bought the PS3 because the newer versions are not backward compatible to PS1 games..
I have a Xbox360... but it's not really backward compatible either

so both fail.

I've heard all PS3s are backwards compatible with PS1 games, just not PS2.

Xbox 360 runs basically every Xbox game I want it to, as a matter of fact, I can't think of one off the top of my head that doesn't run.
