The PS3 games that Xbox 360 Fanboys want

DUALSHOCK 3

Over at TheGameReviews.com they have put together a list of 5 PS3 exclusive games that they feel the Xbox 360 fanboys really want…

So if you are in the normal predicament of not being able to own both consoles and you decided on the 360, do these 5 titles make you feel like you made the wrong choice?

5. Final Fantasy XIII
4. Gran Turismo 5
3. Uncharted: Drakes Fortune
2. Resistance 1 & 2
1. Metal Gear Solid 4

For me only Uncharted and Resistance jump out the page at me to be honest… I am interested in MGS4 but Gran Turismo and Final Fantasy hold no interest for me..

They are apparently going to release the opposite article tomorrow but if I was going to make the call I would go with

5. Mass Effect
4. Bioshock (coming to PS3)
3. Halo (it has to be here)
2. Alan Wake
1. Gears of War 1 & 2

So which major title is missing from both lists?

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

  • Banana hammock

    What about Lair and HAZE? lol.

    Seriously, for XboX owners you would really want God of War as well. And i’ll bet anything that Little Big Planet will be at the top of a lot of lists. Maybe Killzone2 if it even semi lives up to the hype.

    As for me, i would love to get BioShock (which is coming). Halo has never interested me, but Gears of War does look soooo good.

  • Goose ZA

    Have to agree with you about God of War. I played it on the PS2 and it was absolutely fantastic.

    As for our list, I really don’t understand why Halo is such a big deal. It’s a very standard shooter. If that list is in some kind of order than Bioshock should DEFINITELY be ahead of halo.

  • Hmm can’t say I’d agree with that list at all. on the PS3 want list I’d just have LBP, maybe God of War.

    On the Xbox want list, I’d say Fable 2 should probably feature quite highly, I’d also put Crackdown. Considering the Playstation demographics I’d think they’d want Infinite Undiscovery, Guilty Gears 2 and Tales of Vesperia more than 360 owners want FF13. And there’s also the whole community arcade.

  • abe

    But thats cos you are an XsuperBot Doobi 🙄

  • Fox1

    I just want GT5P on my 360 🙄

  • kabraal

    Can’t say I’d agree with crackdown, fable2 or any on your list at all 😉

  • PaasHaas

    Hmmm

    Only games on the 360 im sortof interested in is their jrpgs
    Blue Dragon, Eternal Sonata, Lost Odyssey but none of them performed superbly enough to really make you notice them imo.

    Maybe if one of the new ones turns out to be really great then there would be a reason to look at a 360.

    These lists are so highly dependent on a persons taste etc that its almost pointless… but still interesting none the less

  • Rap7a

    None of the PS3 games have interested me, thus why I bought an Xbox

  • abe

    Are you sure you didnt buy it cos it was the cheap alternative?

  • PaasHaas

    I almost did that… it scares me to this day

  • Milesh Bhana

    agree about the different strokes thing

    My XBOX-fan PS3 want list would be
    God of War 3
    Killzone 2
    LBP
    R&C : Tools of Destruction
    Jak and Daxter
    Tekken 6

  • Syph1n

    I bought an xbox when it was still at almost R4000. to this day i still dont regret it. Borrowed friends ps3 over weekend. played Ratchet, uncharted. couldnt give a stuff about resistance. and this week im gonna get mgs4. everything else this year i want is either on both platforms or exclusive to xbox. ie : gears of war 2, fable 2, too human (i think is exclusive, could be wrong)

  • Syph1n

    And im sorry but Final fantasy isnt final fantasy anymore. Square enix holds the name but if god of war is made by treyarch that doesnt make it awesome necessarily. All the guys who made final fantasy what it is have left and have formed mistwalker. Now is just me or is mistwalker favouring xbox?? Lost odyssey/blue dragon?

  • Syph1n

    notice that theese are all games (except tools of destruction) that havent been released yet. Im sure haze would have made that list a few weeks ago.. just saying. 🙂

  • SlippyMadFrog

    Whats with all the hate from the PS3 supporters?

  • PaasHaas

    Haze was a brand new unpoven IP, Most of those are not and you know it aswell.

    LBP is a unknown and to certain extend killzone 2 aswell

  • PaasHaas

    What games do? These game companies change etc. Im pretty sure most of the people from early FF games did not work on the last FF games (XII,X,X-2) and they where still awesome.

    Think the original Warcraft,Starcraft or diable people are still with blizzard?
    Hellgate london werent that great either if you know what I mean.

  • Syph1n

    Hironobu sakaguchi (lead producer and director) worked on every final fantasy game upto 10. not sure about 12

  • Xbot-BG-001

    Coz the PS3 is such a major flop?

  • PaasHaas

    So 1 person leaves and it all falls apart? The following people are working on FFXIII

    Yoshinori Kitase (Always been a director/producer role since ff7 )
    Tetsuya Nomura ( Character design since ff7 )
    Kazushige Nojima ( Scenario writer since ff7 )

    Hmmmmmm

  • Syph1n

    I wish you well with that comment. I am now gonna leave this page and the ensuing poop throwing is about to commence.. 🙂 prepare yourself for Random insults and general dislike..

  • Milesh Bhana

    they are mostly games of franchises that i liked. Except Killzone (never played the first one) and LBP.

    I forgot to add Wipeout HD.

  • Milesh Bhana

    Mistwalker is definitely an xbox shop.

    But Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey didn’t create big enough waves (they may have been good games, i don’t know persoanlly, not a J-RPG man), but all bets seem to be that FF13 will be better than those two games.

    From the point of view of a PS3 owner waiting for it, IT BETTER BE!

  • *throws poop

  • Syph1n

    So if hideo kojima left the metal gear solid team would it still be the same genius game that it is? seems as he’s the creator but still only one man.

    mmmmm

  • Lol, looks like I called it! I assume by now you’ve seen the Microsoft Japan press conference today?
    http://analoghype.com/blog/282/square-enix-announces-rpg-line-up-for-xbox-360/

    doobi’s evil genius: I reckon Microsofts plan in Japan isn’t necessarily to compete, but to be the “other” console for all those peeps that chose the Wii as their primary console.

    I also find it interesting that throughout the comments the 360 owners are more than happy to admit that there are PS3 games they would like to try, but heaven forbid a PS fanboy admits such heresy. 😉

    Deflector shield on… sorry, that was just silly.. 🙂 POOP SHIELD ON!!

  • Syph1n

    I cant wait for mgs4 this weekend. Its just gonna be such a dissapointed when i dont get bleep (achievement unlocked – sat through 90 minutes cutscene 500 gs)

  • Fox1

    hahahahahahaha :mrgreen:

  • PaasHaas

    Do some form of research before you type dude, Final Fantasy Titles, unlike MGS, is not created, designed, scripted etc by 1 person.

    The amount of control Hideo has over MGS far surpasses that of any single person in a Final Fantasy Title.

    And if other directors, producers, character designers and scenario writers that have been working on these titles just as much remain then the answer is YES.

    It would still be awesome.

    Now if “All the guys who made final fantasy what it is have left” like you Claimed then it would be true but as you can see you kinda LIED… allot of the key players are still there including directors and producers like I mentioned earlier.

    Now how about thinking before you reply again?

  • Syph1n

    @PassHass. Think before i reply. (noted). Im not interested in starting a war that is based on opinion because neither of us will get anywhere or change each others view on the subject.

    And what i meant by the “guys who made” comment was i meant that the guys who made it great and not just good. I apologise for the misunderstanding

  • Syph1n

    Oh and i apologise i didnt realise i needed to write a thesis on a subject before stating an opinion on an anonymous forum. 🙂

  • kab123

    What like yourself?

    “Hmm can’t say I’d agree with that list at all. on the PS3 want list I’d just have LBP, maybe God of War.”

    So you may be peckish about PS3 games but others are “fanboys” for saying they want nothing on the 360 list. Lol sir, you are truely a queer ridiculous person. 😕

    Here’s another 360 fanboy for you. Please direct your posts to him as well:

    “None of the PS3 games have interested me, thus why I bought an Xbox”

    I think that xbox list is pretty complete there anyway. I’d like GeoW, Alan Wake, Bioshock and Halo would be nice. But you can have my gods honest word that neither I, or 99.9% or the PS3 onwners are selling kidneys to get a 360 for crackdown.

  • Syph1n

    Jesus christ you ps3 fanboys are sensitive…

  • PaasHaas

    Its not a war its a discussion… and you dont need to justify/defend your opinions but im atleast going to try to get a answer/response if possible.

    And it does sound more “Acceptable” now that the “Guys who made” segment is clearer… didnt help much to make the new Mistwalker games “great” sadly

  • Syph1n

    Didnt mean to justify, just clarify. which i’ve done now and we both happy. Have you played lost odyssey? To me and everyone that has played it (that i know of and in my job its quite a few), it is the best Jrpg since final fantasy 7 (opinion and not fact 😉 )and dare i say it possibly better. Alot of reviewers didnt like it because it didnt “innovate”

    But we didnt want it to innovate, we wanted a game that shared the same brilliance as final fantasy 7 (the industry benchmark in my opinion) and lost odyssey delivered that with a story that will make you cry at least twice. Again an opinion.

    Now i’ve admitted to borrowing a ps3 for mgs4, Why dont u borrow/steal a xbox 360 and give it a go? trust me you’ll be surprised.

  • kab123

    Sensitive? If you haven’t caught the drift of my post I’ll get out the crayons for you

    then,

    “I also find it interesting that throughout the comments the 360 owners are more than happy to admit that there are PS3 games they would like to try, but heaven forbid a PS fanboy admits such heresy.”

    Now use you collective mind power and concentrate on my post. I’m being far from sensitive; I’m fucking laughing my ass of for some typical doobi stupidity

  • Syph1n

    So you’re attacking doobi and not 360 fanboys then?

    Here’s another 360 fanboy for you. Please direct your posts to him as well:

    “None of the PS3 games have interested me, thus why I bought an Xbox”

    My collective mind power misunderstood

  • PaasHaas

    I play 360 allot at my friends place. Gears, halo, Mass effect etc.

    If he buys the game ill play it, and id probably like it if its like FF7.
    Maybe it does rock but it needs to make “waves” and be a real GREAT game to get someone to add it to his “Must get a 360 because of…” list and im just not getting that vibe from online info/new/reviews and the general 360 users I encounter.

  • Syph1n

    Didnt say You must buy a 360 for it. Just rent it and check it out at your friends house if you can. If you loved ff 7 you owe it to yourself. 🙂

  • Naudran

    Well said 🙂

  • Syph1n

    I just dont understand why every game MUST be a the ps3 is better because it has this game and vica versa. If a game is on ps3 i will make a plan to play it. If i had a ps3 i would make a plan to play gears 2. it doesnt make either machine better.

  • PaasHaas

    Ill see what I can do, I have a general “rule” against renting RPGs since I dont think they give you a proper view and I like to play at my leisure.

    Guess I can make a exception

  • Lol noob. You’re silly 😛

    And about as sensitive as a 40 year old virgin. Or a 5 year. Get out more.

    My comment was a humorous poke at the thread in general and some of my old PS fanboy friends. But I seem to have hit a nerve, you really need to see someone about that, and grow up.

    Meh 🙄

    Dont provoke him. he’ll get the poo. I’ll borrow you my poo shield. 🙂

  • kab123

    Oh the classic “didn’t you read my :p” comeback 🙄

  • kab123

    shit… you can say shit

  • kab123

    I still haven’t read anyone with a credible post record here who claimed all that bs you just wrote. If it makes you feel better, I’m a PS3 fanboy, but GeOW still is my all time favourite console game. There I said it, hope it makes you sleep tonight

  • Syph1n

    Shit shit shit. U just nt worth the time. The poop is a joke that clearly went over ur head

  • Before emoticons people actually had to read and comprehend. I guess that’s totally optional these days.
