Next-Gen Console Exclusives Explored 101

SeventhStar writes "Siliconera has an article with a long list of exclusive titles broken down by next-gen console. The Playstation 3 only has a few exclusive games at the moment; 29 are third-party, with 12 are made by Sony. Meanwhile Microsoft has 48 Xbox 360 exclusive games, with 23 of them are developed internally. However it looks like the real winner for exclusive games is the Wii. There are 39 titles only for the Wii and even ported games are going to play differently. When you adjust the amount of exclusive games on the Xbox 360 for its one year head start, the Wii has more original games coming out for it. Since console exclusives help determine which console to purchase is the Wii in a good spot?"

    Watch these [] and tell me you don't want to try the console out. These people honestly look like they are just having fun. Some of these also really made me understand the possibilities for the casual gamer with this system.

    The summary doesn't match the article either, which says "35 for sony, 18 of them in house."

    The real thing to think about are titles that _aren't_ going to Wii but _are_ going to PS3/360. The big one that comes to mind right off the bat is GTA 4 (hate it, love it, its going to be a huge title). I'm wondering if the Wii's percieved underperformance will cause devs to shy away and have "next-gen" mean 360/PS3 only.

    Also, is this article really a surprise to anyone? Nintendo always has the strongest 1st party titles because they have the strongest lineup of characters and games people love.

    I would think that the devs will do no such things, but their higher ups in PR, to make the games seem more mature, would not be as likely to have the developers make the games for the Wii. However, everyone remembers Goldeneye 64. I mean, even I remember it, and I have never owned a console. I think the main thing, as everyone says, is Nintendo's licensing.

    Personally I would want (if I could afford it) a PS3. It's not just about the graphics. It's about Linux, a hard drive on the "cheap" model, GTA IV, the cell processor, a large capacity optical drive, and yeah, what look to be the best graphics of any of the systems.

    "It isn't. Untitled projects cannot be counted because they don't exist."


    Those titles are straight from the publishers themselves. Many of those games like the Naughty Dog title we already have released media from.

    "Also, that list is every single announced game for the PS3, not just games scheduled between release and March 2007. "


    All the non-exclusive PS3 titles were trimmed.

    I beg to differ. Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, and to a lesser extent God of War, make Sony's first-party lineup easily as strong (if not as vast).

Thufir's a Harkonnen now.
