I don't know if anyone remembers, but I made this thread at the end of the year of 2012 questioning if Sony's lineup had the necessary muster to match the Xbox 360 and Wii in 2013... and not only did it match it, it exceeded both! While still very behind the mark of the PC, it still managed to be the console to provide the most high quality exclusives. Of course, it might be irrelevant now since Nintendo abandoned the Wii, and Microsoft... well, you know how Microsoft's support has been for the Xbox 360.

Here's the list using Gamespot's fancy new table feature. Oh yeah! =D

We counted MLB 10 and 11?

That PS3 list is a thing of beauty.

What Sony did with this console is nothing short of staggering.

#6 Posted by Nengo_Flow (9187 posts) -

@DanteSuikoden: remember when the Wii60 fanboys used to troll the forums with "Ps3 will never have a AAAE!!!!!!"

good times

New table feature owns.

I wonder how each console would fair if the cutoff was 7.0 instead of 8.0 and included downloadable titles. If you ever have the time Stevo :)

#9 Posted by Stevo_the_gamer (42493 posts) -

@MFDOOM1983: Well, SW doesn't use either as ownage though last generation. This gen is different though.

Best console turnaround in history?

and now for the luz, the line ups with just AAAE+ titles

PS3 (36)Wii (35)360 (34)

Interesting factoid, Not a single exclusive IP's outside of Halo, Forza or Gears of War to scored AAA since on xbox360 since 2006.

#12 Edited by Stevo_the_gamer (42493 posts) -

@darkspineslayer: One thing for sure, the PS3 will finally have an exclusive nominated this year for best PS3 game after two years straight with nothing but multiplats.

#13 Posted by BranKetra (47323 posts) -

It had a slow start, but the PS3 did not disappoint.

#14 Posted by ISpeakFactJr (15 posts) -

Ps3 has destroyed the competition since '08.

3 goty exclusives

1 being a perfect 10.

The Domination, truely, has won. /:-)

#15 Posted by ReadingRainbow4 (12625 posts) -

It seemed once they got Kutaragi out of the way it was all uphill.

Just goes to show you people power matters, I mean we had Microsoft stuck with mattrick for the longest time on the tail end of the xbox's lifespan and he just about ran it into the ground.

#16 Edited by foxhound_fox (86572 posts) -

It spent the entire generation playing catchup and only ended coming out on top by a single title.

Not impressive in the slightest.

It's one of the best aspects of Sony's games division, long term, consistant and compelling game support.

#20 Posted by megaspiderweb09 (3652 posts) -

When some analyst predicted that the Steam console would force Microsoft to abandon their gaming division, it was not some random guess. Out of the major three, only Sony and Nintendo has the treshold to hold out for harsh competition in the gaming business, in comparison to Microsoft where the Xbox division makes insignificant portion of total revenue, add to the fact that that major shareholder who just got promoted into the board of directors isnt a fan of that division either. Steams entry would stretch consoles thin and Microsoft would quit

#21 Posted by cain006 (8625 posts) -

In terms of exclusives I think that the wii was by far the winner of the consoles. I didn't care about almost all the multiplats because I have a pc. The exclusives on the wii were very high quality and there wasn't anything like them on any other system.

#22 Posted by Netret0120 (1849 posts) -

Only deluded lemmings and sheep believe that the PS3 still has a poor lineup.

Sony always have the best 1st party support and longest by releasing New IP's the same year the PS4 is coming out and there are still more exclusives coming

#23 Posted by ActicEdge (24171 posts) -

Its kind of ironic that the Wii which is always shit on because nintendo "rehashes" has the least number of same generation sequels on that list. Because we all wanted to play R1,2&3 (barf). Anyhow, the PS3 carved out a nice exclusive library in the end. That Japanese support certainly helps.

Heavy Rain and MGS4 is all I care about.

This was an easy win for Sony :D

Now the PS4, here we come

#32 Posted by GrayF0X786 (3808 posts) -

MGS4 on top baby :D

#33 Edited by always_explicit (2575 posts) -

A ten year generation and two extra exclusive titles???

Ownage??...really???

You can create lists all you like but the fact is my PS3 does nothing but gather dust until naughty god release a title.

This is just beyond belief. Cow circle jerk.

Dat butthurt, your PS3 has nothing to do with this, you have to deal with that "fact" alone, sorry.

Just thank Stevo that he even leaves games like Scene It? on the 360 list, lol.

#38 Edited by TheEroica (12958 posts) -

Sony earned some good faith with me for sticking to supporting the PS3... When I think about how I've got Dragon's Crown, The Last of Us, Puppeteer and Beyond over the past 6 months, i can't help but to be impressed by both variety and quality. I like what they're doing. That said... and to keep it system warsie, I still think the X360 was the quintessential platform of generation 7...

Yeah. You just have to wait 6 years.

LOL I didn't wait much.

RFOM
Genghi Days of the blade

Untold Legends

Ridge Racer 7 were all launch titles and then more came that year and then next year games like MGS4 began to hit. What did you guys have to launch with? Gears? Halo? Forza? Pgr? Shut up.

@John_Matherson: Not sure if serious.

Trolls gonna troll.

Anyways yeah the PS3 definitely picked up the most steam after half of the generation. Wii was abandoned quickly because Nintendo knew they had to hurry up, and MS went with whatever crowd was giving them the most money.

Have to say though, I honestly thought the margin would have been bigger.

#45 Edited by seanmcloughlin (38110 posts) -

Only games worth caring about for me were Uncharted 2, Demon's Souls and TLOU. The rest are all decent or pretty good but nothing to write home about

If you remove all the dancing and kinect games on 360 the margin will indeed be pretty big... i mean dancing games? seriously? lulz only on xbox

still no Disgaea D2? lulz

#50 Posted by Floppy_Jim (25354 posts) -

I'm not saying they don't count but one or more of those 360 games didn't release in EU and others require K-K-Kinect. (On the other hand- Wonderbooklol) So PS3 did squeeze a remarkably close win. Also Donkey Kong came to the 3DS a while ago.
