One of the biggest factors players have to decide on when buying a different generations console is what exclusives are going to be available. While the Xbox 360 has certainly had many releases under its name go on to become player classics, the Playstation 3 was just as successful. There are so many titles from both consoles that it’s near impossible to make a definitive list, so here’s just a handful of PS3 games Xbox players want to play:
The action platforming series has developed a kind of cult following since it’s release. Players control Nathan Drake’s journey as platformer and shooter elements are executed against an incredibly detailed game. Other platforming games that were Xbox exclusives simply can’t compare to the staggering popularity that meets the Uncharted series. The game is addictive in gameplay with a great story and graphics to match.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots
The series that brought the console to where it is today, Metal Gear has always been an exclusive ensuring jealousy among players longing a Playstation. And with the fourth release of the series, it’s no different. Guns Of The Patriots was met to widespread acclaim as we assumed the role of Solid Snake in the adventure. A game noted to be “technically flawless”, Guns Of The Patriots combined simple controls with challenging gameplay, along with a staggering 10 hours of cinematics.
The indie game impressed players and critics alike with its simplistic design and concept creating an immersive and brilliant experience. Journey saw players control a robed figure across a desert, with a trailing scarf allowing them to advance from place to place. The visual aesthetic and sound on Journey felt fresh and refined on release, and will do so for years to come. It’s reception showed us that popular small-time games were not just exclusive to the Xbox.
Heavy Rain proved to be immensely impressive in its storytelling as well as gameplay. The game sees four protagonists linked to the Origami serial killer, as film noir is combined with action adventure. The game has become most noteworthy for its use of player decisions to affect the storyline, an innovative gameplay feature that sadly was not present on the Xbox exclusives.
The Last Of Us
Universal critical acclaim is a trait ensured to represent the enjoyability of a game, and The Last Of Us is no exception. Players see themselves trekking across the country in this post-apocalyptic adventure, that has been labeled as a definitive title for the Playstation 3 in terms of writing, voice acting, sound design, level design, and art direction. Never before has the balance between storytelling and gameplay been upheld to this standard, as The Last Of Us creates an entire world for players to experience.
