Editorial: My Xbox 360 Is Gathering Dust...Help!

As a gamer with a certain amount of free time at his disposal, I typically try to have a couple consoles for each generation. I had the SNES and Genesis, the PS1 and Dreamcast (although the PS1 quickly took precedence), the PS2 and Xbox, and now, the PS3 and Xbox 360. I got the 360 during the summer of 2006 - several months before the PS3 launched - and a year later, I believe I had six 360 games and four PS3 games. Now obviously, I don't buy things arbitrarily.

I think we all know that during the first year of the PS3's existence, there wasn't a huge amount of must-have titles. Secondly, it was a time when many PS3 versions of multiplatform titles were inferior to their 360 counterparts because developers hadn't gotten a firm grasp on Sony's new hardware. Therefore, it was hardly surprising to see that the majority of my next-gen titles were on the 360. However, as of right now, I have 24 PS3 games and 8 360 games...which means that in the past couple of years, I've bought 2 more 360 games and 18 more PS3 games. Granted, I only own a few of those PS3 games (Folklore and SOCOM: US Navy SEALs Confrontation included) because I received them for review purposes, but the fact remains that my 360 continues to gather dust. It's not just the exclusives - MGS4, Killzone 2, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Heavenly Sword, inFamous, Resistance and Resistance 2, Warhawk, Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds, LittleBigPlanet, etc. - it's also the fact that I've always preferred the PS3 controller. The system is also more reliable and these days, multiplats are basically identical.

Yeah, I've had a blast playing Gears of War 2, Lost Odyssey, and Beautiful Katamari, and I've always wanted to play Left 4 Dead and Fable II, but that's about where it ends for that system. I like the fact that the Network is free and by now, it has made great strides and isn't all that different from Live (which I just don't have the motivation to sign up for), and the PlayStation Store has just about everything I could ever want (Wipeout HD, echochrome, Flower, flOw, etc.). The bottom line is that I own my consoles for games, and when I look at my contrasting game libraries, I have to realize something painfully obvious: once again, and as was the case with the PS2/Xbox generation, Sony's piece of hardware delivers more software that I want on a more routine basis. Looking down the road, with the likes of God of War III, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, MAG, Gran Turismo 5, Heavy Rain, Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time and White Knight Chronicles, I just see this trend continuing. Sure, I want Alan Wake and the next Gears and Halo, but the 360 library seems destined to lag behind the PS3's.

Now, believe it or not, I don't like it when it's this lopsided. Therefore, I am asking you for some 360 software ideas. Yes, I want to flesh out my collection a little more; it looks absolutely pathetic next to my PS3 collection, and I know I want to play L4D, although I may not have time for Fable II. Any other suggestions? What have you played and enjoyed? And bear in mind that I'm not a big online player - as you've already guessed - and I can't really waste a huge chunk of time on long RPGs. However, just for the record, if they made another Lost Odyssey, I'd buy it immediately. I'll also be getting Final Fantasy XIII on Day 1. But the point is, I just want a great game that I can only play on the 360, other than the two titles I've already mentioned. So, who has some ideas?

Alienage you wouldn't have to worry,the NXE Update lets you install the game on the HDD so you wouldn't have hear any noise from the DVD drive. I must admit my 360 is now the quietest since the regular games i play are on the HDD and my ps3 is rather noisy when the fan starts whining and venting about heat.

www - the only thing is I got the "arcade" version on sale at Future Shop for 149 the other week. That's about all I'm going to spend on a 360. They can keep their $100 60gb hds. I'm running off the 256mb stick and that'll be fine for what the machine offers. Maybe I'll just put a headset on.

Really Ben? I honestly thought LO was a big mess personally and even found the combat dull and overly convoluted-a bit too stais in terms of action as well for my tastes. typically it fell short of either being trad enough for my purist side OR pushing things enough to excite me and further the genre. I even liked BD better-and IU for that matter and they weren't great.

SO4 is a disgrace to the series as well! The end of the year looks pretty good for the 360 mind(typically MS have managed to not get the games spread very well and now they're competing with each other, imo). You can't argue that there aren't games though.

I also question the wisdom of the article. I don't doubt your opinion or honesty Ben but it's going to look(esp to those from, erm, the other side or don't know your history)like a bit of a flamey one I fear. I just don't like to see you get hauled over the coals like you prolly will for this one!

Personally I've played much more PS3 too this year(as I've waited/am waiting for for the PS versions of Tales and ES as well)but it's more to do with controller choice and taste than there being nothing there. And Ms can't chnage things like that, not for everyone anyway;) They'll only say "well he would say that" won't they?

Lost Odyssey is an alright game. Wanted to trade my 360 for a ps3 but it seems my best bet is trying to sell it. Then i figured they're are some decent exclusives for 360 so i guess i'll keep it. But i have favored Sony's playstion franchise over anything else for years and still do. Don't have a ps3 yet but once i do it WILL be my primary console. Not gonna bash 360 or Microsoft simply just love Sony's playstations.

PS controller is king to me; the weird thing is that is one of the first things that gets bashed by fanboys.I hear a lot of "It's the same sh!t from 16 years ago" to "the PS controller is too small and the analogs are position awkwardly".They don't understand that when something isn't broken there's no need to fix it.

Word up on the PS controllers, hated the xbox controller & don't own a 360, but I figure it's probably just about the same as their original.

But out of all the systems since my old intellivision/Colecovision days, I found that my Atari Jaguar contollers take the prize as "the worst of the worst".

It's the bulkiest controller I've ever tried to grip, and the size of a newborn hippo.
It has 17 button functions and a directional pad.
And for each different game, I have to insert an individual plastic overlay game card that came with each game, overtop those 17 buttons, just to figure out what each button does for it's own game. What a PITA that is!

And, my Dreamcast controllers are my second place winners for "worst of the worst" too.

For me the SNES controller is my all time favorite, followed by the Playstation Dualshock(s), and then the old NES. All other controllers (N64, X(boxes), Dreamcast) didn't feel 'right' they placed joysticks and buttons in an arrangement that just seemed odd. I guess I like the PS controllers cause of their symmetry and balance. :-P

In it's dedication to be my playmate of choice, my 360 Elite is been ever faithful to me, while growing a 2 inch layer of dust.

But that's only because it's sitting on a shelf at my local Gamestop with the price tag still attached, and awaiting me to buy it.

And after 3 years, it's still awaits....

Sorry Ben, no can do. It's a well known fact that the Xbox 360 has no games. I thought everyone knew that....Perhaps you can use it to prop up your stack of BluRay discs?

;)

Maybe you could play some Classic Xbox titles downloaded from XBL...oh, wait, you can't do that...You could dig out your hand held gaming unit connect it and download a few games off XBL for it...oops, sorry, that's a PSP and PSN. I know, what about watching a few BluRay movie...ah, sorry forgot. Oh, Oh, I know you could browse the web...if you had a browser. Oh, hang on, that's not right. I know, you can redo your NXE avatar, that should burn a couple of hours.

:D

Hmm...Fable II? I believe that there are also a few exclusive XL titles....

Arkanoid live
Zombie wranglers
Yosumin Live
Sam & Max Save the world
Rocket Riot

Sorry, pretty slim pickin's since most everything else I could find is multi-platform or Sony exclusive.

In all seriousness, I really couldn't find much of anything even scouring Metacritic for recent titles. It's true, the 360 has no games!

You've never signed up for XBL Gold? You're smart. You would think that with the endless man parties on XBL, the 360 fanboys would spend more time gaming and less time harassing you and Arnold. Apparently, not even the carrot that is XBL Gold can keep them occupied enough.

Honestly, there's nothing that has been released in the last 2 years that has made me regret selling off the 360. Well, other than Braid.

Ben, I can suggest a few XBox Live titles. You can try Castle Crashers, Ikaruga, Braid, and REZ HD. As far as retail releases I could suggest Crackdown, Mass Effect, the first F.E.A.R. because the PS3 version was crap. If you liked the first Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie you could get Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. You could also consider some Xbox originals. You got the KOTOR, KOTOR II, Jade Empire, and Fable The Lost Chapters. That is just a few suggestions I could come up with that others have not suggested.

You know, when I got my ps3 in early 2007, I was dissapointed I got and not the 360. But now, I thank my patience because the only games I would be playing on 360 right now would be ace combat 6, and gears of war 2. I only have about 10 games for ps3, but right now that's really all I need, or more! Right now my two most anticipated titles for ps3 are grand turismo 5, and modern warfare 2.

In short terms, im glad I stayed with my 60gb ps3.

Seriously, the few suggestions people have given are all well-reviewed. If I were you, I'd get Mass Effect or Fable II (I don't remember if you've tried Mass Effect at all); you should really give Western-style RPGs a chance. I don't think either is very long.

Personally, I don't think I would post a request for good Xbox 360 games on a site that is focused on Playstations.

Seems counter-productive.

I think I'd much rather have people tell me which multi-platform games are better on the PS3. Gotta make sure I put my money toward a good cause.

You are aware that Ben is one of the main authors/editors/head-honcho type dudes that run PSXExtreme, right?

The article is an editorial which is using the request for game suggestions for the 360 to illustrate just how few games there are on that platform right now. At least, that's kinda what I got from it, that and Ben just wants some suggestions for a good game to play on his dust magne....I mean Xbox 360.

ok straight up.
i try not to be a fanboy but it is very hard.

i have a ps3 and have been looking for a reason to buy a 360. my buddy got a 360 because he can mod it, but thats it.THATs the only reason he bought it.and the truth is he is right, get a modded 360 and play free multiplatfrom games on it. but the PS3 Owns. he even said it
sorry the exclusives kicks the multiplatfroms in the ass.
he tries to argue about PS3 losing metal gear
but all i have to say is this...
Metal Gear Rising is NOT METAL GEAR.
most likely it will be a generic devil may cry/bayonetta shoot em up to appease the masses. i may be wrong but lets wait and see.
(anyone who was played metal gear 4 would know)

(despite microsofts claims) there is nothing on that system that interests me. RPGs: Valkyria white knight chronicles! nuff said
lost odyssey i heard was good along with mass effect but Star ocean sux played it and was bored within minutes.

believe me man
u can search and search
u are a PS fan to the core.
believe me
i tried to switch
i Cant...

lets leave it at that
if microsoft wants to really win us over offer some truely good games.

Sorry i go where Final Fantasy and Team ICO goes. thats the reason i bought PS3, it's a guarantee.

@BuggaBoo,
FYI, if you've been faithfully reading this site, you would have already known that they're always telling us what multi-plat's are better on the PS3.

And, even though this site's 99.9/10'ths about Playstation, there's certainly nothing wrong with talking about any other gaming occasionally, no matter what machine it's on.

Anyways, I can remember that people here(myself included) also have talked about other gaming machines too....
Tandy Computer
Atari 2600
Atari 5200
Intellivision,
Colecovision,
NES
SNES
Panasonic 3DO
Atari Jaguar
N64
Genesis
Saturn
Dreamcast
Gamecube
Xbox-1
PS1
PS2
All the hand-helds too.

And I'm sure I've left out quite a few other systems that other's here can chime in on too.

I doubt many other system oriented sites are willing to do that, but hey, that's what makes this site such a class site!

And in the end it's all about gaming anyway, right?

I just don't see you wanting to fire up the 360 to play Xbox Live games. They're cute and all that, but that's not why you buy an Xbox.

What about Infinite Undiscovery? Is that any good?

For a couple hours of entertainment I play Earth Defense Force 2017. Cheap, funny and addictive.

Actually, I won my first Xbox 360 and got TMNT for my kids. Now, I only look for Xbox exclusives, as I get multiplat releases for my PS3, and XBLA games. What irks me is that some games I've gotten for XBLA are now on PSN and I would have much rather gotten them on the PS3 so that I can stick with one location instead of wishing I'd waited for it. Oh well. You live and you learn.

crackdown was alot better than what i was expecting.
but the best game ive played on my 360 was PREY.
that game is so cool with portals you can control gravity spirit walk and its rely spooky.
i was expecting it to be a lame scfi shooter but it rely blew me away after the first boring 10 minutes.
hope prey 2 dident get canceled because 3D realms was making it and we all know what hapend their.
and both gears games the seccond was the best.

Yeah I think they did this intentinally. They designed the controller to adapt to accessories that you would have to pay for to make it more apealing. Personally I bought the accessories and they are ok, but realiable. I also heard some where that on launch dates for the Ps3 and xbox 360 they sold the systems cheaper than they were worth to focus funds for accessories and games to make a profit there. But hey, what do I know?

There's one thing I don't quite understand. If the playstation 3 has a better library of games than the xbox 360's, why isn't it outselling the xbox 360? I know it's a very expensive console and that not everyone can afford it. But that didn't stop sales from increasing when metal gear solid 4 came out.

Games like metal gear solid 4 have caused a massive increase in sales. But other exclusives like killzone 2 and infamous did little to sell hardwares.

The power of suggestion and advertising. Sony's advertising is sh** and always has been. Every last casual gamer on the planet THINKS the 360 is better than the PS3, but as they're casual gamers, they know very little about what's out there.

The hardcore will mostly all agree that in terms of exclusive software, the PS3 wins by a very, very large margin.

I don't know Ben. I think Sony's advertising was decent in the PS1/Ps2 eras.

After two successive console wins, it seems Sony is resting on its laurels a bit and living on name recognition alone. Unfortunately, it is not working this gen.

Same Here, i got 8 games for the 360 and 21 games for ps3. The last 360 game i bought was Street Fighter IV.But i occasionally use it because i have Fifa 09 and that's the only reason why i still turn it on,i can't get enough of soccer. Other than that, i stopped playing Gears2,Fallout 3 and the rest of the games.

Its been PS3 every time cause of FREE Online, rechargeable controllers(yes buying those cotdamn batteries for 360 is a BIG DEAL!),HOME and the fact that i DON'T have to switch displays from 50HZ to 60HZ depending on games.

Am not about to bash my 360 but what were they thinking with that batteries in controller idea when the controller is already weighty, the batteries in addition makes it bulky,sometimes you end up using the wired controller plus seeing the disc tray popping out and DVD discs makes it feel last gen. Oh and that mandatory 60HZ for games like RE5 make it blurry prompting me to get the PS3 version which looks sharp and crystal clear.

Now i have decided to get ONLY exclusives on 360 and multi-plats on PS3. I feel like packing my 360 till the Lost & Damned + Ballad of Gay Tony combo disc is out.

When did Tekken 6 release? Oh, that's right, it didn't yet.

Magna Carta 2 - also not out until October.
Halo 3 ODST - (glorified expansion pack) not out yet.
Forza 3 - End of October I believe
Alan Wake - there's a reason this 'coming soon' game is nicknamed Alan Wait.
Kodu - Is that a game or a desperate attempt to get gamers to make free games? It's genre is described as "Educational Productivity", so not a game then.
Lost Planet 2 - Q4 2009
SCC - game or video?
Bioshock2 - Out when, ah November....
crackdown2 - To be announced
MechWarrior (still in early development LOL) - to be announced
Mass Effect2 - to be announced
Ace Combat 6 (old game, but great) - Yes, old game.

I think you missed the point, or rather you got the point and ignored it so you could try to make a different one. Ben was asking for a new and exclusive game out now to play on his 360, not games that won't release for another couple of months or more, and not games he's already played. The point, perhaps, being that the 360 appears to be enduring a drought of good games, especially exclusives.

Ironic that the game you really want to play - Atelier Rorona' is a PS3 exclusive.

My 360 hardly gets used now as I am playing a lot of my games on the PS3.

No! Just no!

If it is on the PC then it is not a 360 exclusive because I don't need to own a 360 to play it, which is the definition of exclusive.

Gears 1 was not a 360 exclusive because it was also on PC.

Gears 2 was a 360 exclusive because if I want to play it I have to buy a 360.

You may call it a 360 console exclusive, but it is not exclusive no matter how you want to play with semantics.

Killzone 2, GowIII, Resistance, LBP, GT5, inFamous, etc. ARE PS3 exclusives.
It's justy not!

Well some titles I can think of is...
Viva Piniata, Halo 3, Crackdown, Left 4 dead (you already said that), if you do sign up to xbox live you can get some xbox live arcade games (Worms, Death tanks, classics, etc...) if your willing to shell out the extra cash. Also if your a gold member I think you can try 1 vs 100. (I have my family hooked on that.) I'm not sure if this was Xbox exclusive but I had fun with games like Stuntman: Ignition and stuff like that. I think Shadowrun was for only the Pc and Xbox. (Only fun if you have online.) The Xbox can be fun but if only you pay for it. Because microsoft likes money (but thats a different story). If I can think of some more titles I'll post them.

PS3 has more and better exclusive games coming out in the near future but i think the xbox360 still holds more games and 'arguably' slightly better than the ps3 games as of now.

u can still enjoy the DLC that fallout and gta still holds exclusivity to. yes it is or probably will be coming to the ps3 but the 360 has it first(at least for the moment being. seems to be the trend for some reason that the 360 holds more DLC for games compared to the ps3)

magna carta2, raiden4,risen(rpg),splinter cell is coming out in couple months which are exclusive to the 360. and lets not forget about (probably the few 360 games im looking forward to playing) the secret world: dark days are coming, info is scarce but the trailer looks awesome. (i might have the title wrong, not sure)

mass effect series, halo series (but since ur not into online as much halo probably is not part of ur interest), as well as past RPGs like the last remnant, infinite undiscovery, and fable2 are also pretty good games. although i dont recommend infinite undiscovery. kind of a children's rpg with really annoying mechanics.

but fable2 is surprisingly good cuz i was disappointed with fable1, and its not that long of a game. so if time is something u dont really have, fable2 is a awesome rpg game to pick up if u hadnt already.

xboxlive has some third party games which were available b4 but are now coming to the PSN EX:bomberman

*FYI - i personally like the ps3 much better than the 360 for obvious reasons
**im a human, i make mistakes, dont frame me if 1 or 2 of these titles are also coming out on the ps3 later, these things change so frequently and unexpectadly
***if u point out a mistake i made, i respectfully appreciated if its pointed out without hate or sarcasm

So in conclusion, you should probably sell your 360 to get some PS3 games. I made the decision after I found out this place was paying $200 cash for the pro model, and NG2 was a let down. I was going to hold out for SO4 but I figured it would turn out average and come out for PS3 eventually. Shame I was right, I loved SO2 qnd especially SO3. *Crosses fingers for an improved SO4 for PS3 sometime soon!*

Unless you really love FPS's the Xbox has no exclusives outside of L4D that are really that intriguing to me. There are a few that sound like something I would try but nothing that really grabs me.
You should stream Netflix on it, since you are paying a monthly fee for Xbox live access you may as well use it. This is the one feature that I truly am really envious of vs the PS3. The movie store on PSN leaves a bit to be desired in terms of cost, download speed and HD space.

Isn't L4D really an FPS though?

Netflix is an interesting service. Sony just got Netflix on net enabled Bravia TVs, I would have to assume that the PS3 will get Netflix service once the exclusivity clause in Microsoft's Xbox 360 Netflix service contract expires.

Talking of movies and video on consoles, I'd be more interested in finding out just what justification the twits in charge of Hulu have for specifically blocking the SP3 browser from their service? It was blocked recently having been working previously. They now specifically block the PS3 based on the string that the browser sends to identify itself. More than one tech site has manually configured a PC browser with that string to impersonate a PS3 and been blocked, but when using a standard PC web browser the very same PC gains access no problem. So it's not like there is a bug or something, it was an active decision taken by the folks at Hulu. Conspiracy theories anyone?

I'm kind of getting sick of this exclusivity crap, it's like someone trying to say that Sony TVs can't receive over the air NBC because Panasonic signed an exclusive deal with them that included an exclusion clause preventing Sony TVs from viewing NBC. How long would it take for a contract like that to be voided? Not long. The Internet is fast becoming the common carrier for more than email, and it's time for this silly exclusivity to vanish like the dinosaurs.

"The movie store on PSN leaves a bit to be desired in terms of cost, download speed and HD space"

this statement is incorrect

1. terms of cost
i cant even access the netflix without spending extra dollars on getting a gold membership, on top of that, paying for the netflix movies

2. u are talking about streaming movies via the xboxlive, so what does download speed have to do with it?

3. HDD space, the average xbox HDD is around 15GB. cuz 20GB doesnt physically give u the full 20GB. the average HDD space of ps3 is 80GB(or 75ish) without even counting all those people who replaced it with a 300-500GB HDDs

@kreate
To clarify:
1) The rental prices are high in my opinion, anything more than $3 for a rental is too much (last I looked PSN was $5 I believe). A lot of people have Netflix or would if they could get instant viewing, $17 a month for 3 movies at a time is reasonable if you watch lots of movies you can get 6-9 a week (>$1 a movie rental BTW) so meh.
2) I should have said download time, even with a cable connection downloading a movie takes a long, long time, it isn't a streaming feed
3) If I rent or buy a movie it downloads onto my hard drive, video is large, even w/ a 500gb drive there is a limit to the number of movies I can have at a given time. Yes, it can be deleted, but since it took an age to download it is not a trivial decision to erase one.

Chuck-just thank your lucky stars that you are a US citizen(or NA at least) and CAN access Nerflix. You'll have to tell me what it's like as we don't, even though Live is slightly dearer in the UK get, get Netflix. And nor do we have a Vid store on PSN.

All the PSN Vs Live arguments amuse me when I can't seem to get most of the stuff that people argue about-oftebn years after it's landed in the States. It's really annoying on PSN when you think how loyal the EU has been to PS3 only tio get continually shafer by SCEE-and MS aren't much better in the EU!

1. i understand

2. "age to download" "long long time" define these statement, i can download a movie under 1 hour and i dont consider that "age to download" or "long long time"

but it will download in the background and u can play ur games or ps home, as well as pretty much anything else u need to do on the ps3 while the movie is downloading

streaming videos via xboxlive has buffering sequences that occur during the video clip making it a bit annoying, but if u want to argue that u got fast speed internet and u dont get a lot of buffering interruptions, than downloading movies shouldnt be a issue for u

3. lets say a movie is 1GB long, than with a 500GB HDD, u get almost 500 movies, if u dont want to delete it, just transfer this to an external HDD or to ur pc, as long as the item is 'activated' under ur account, u can re download this anytime

the reason why microsoft uses streaming in their services is cuz many xbox users doesnt have a harddrive

*to my understanding, certain Netflix movies gets expired and is taken down by microsoft making it unavailable, but if u downloaded it, u can always re download this or keep it elsewhere
**xbox lacks a digital output for sound quality as well as blu ray. also watching movies after it is downloaded has a higher visual quality than streaming them, making the PS3 the preferred choice to have the best movie experience possible
***im not saying u are wrong, im just saying that if streaming via xboxlive is what u want to do, than thats fine, many people do it, but certain points u made is a bit misleading

Ace Combat 6 is good game.
the story not as good as AC5 and AC0 but the gameplay in AC6 is better.

even now you can easily play online. because there still many gamer playing Ace Combat 6 online.

about nija gaiden 2
Xbox 360 Ninja Gaiden 2 = 1120x585 (2xAA) (beyond3d)
PS3 Ninja Gaiden: Sigma 2 = same sub-hd res but no AA (eurogamer)

Team Ninja take their time to optimize ninja gaiden sigma 2's engine. thats why it have better graphic ;)
ys both have sub-hd resolution but on PS3 you get better shader effect ;)

*WARNING: OPINIONS RESIDE HERE*

I am so dumb-founded and amazed how far some people will go to prove console supremacy. Which in fact is quite pointless. They all have flaws whether you know it or not. Whether you care or not.

First off, this is total flame-bait. Even the mention of the XBOX360 in the presence of a bunch of PS3 owners is a declaration of war. It's funny when you guys point and shout "Fanboy!" when really you guys should buy mirrors. Real un-biased people (which at least half of this post isn't) would actually suggest some non-crap post about chucking your Xbox.

Secondly. If you need "HELP" go to an Xbox forum or somewhere where you 'know' they aren't just gonna tell you to throw it away.

Don't take this the wrong way Ben, it's my opinion. I'm just addressing the troll populace.

HEY BEN!:

Did You believe that your article (a good one IMO) has caused quite a stir in the fanboy community of an incredible fanboy ridden site nemed News 4 Fanboys. They came up with an article from a very $hitty site and a very $hitty writter who tells Sony to STFU!! LOL!!! Man you really hurt the feelings of the 360 crowd, not the gamer community just the fanboys. They post in the mentioned site against you, they call u a lot of things but what is REALLY funny is that they even read your articles and the ones that do cant even recommend a single exsisting game to you!! LOL!!

We gamers know that the 360 doesnt have games that compete rigth now with Sonys big exclusives this year. The only ones are multiplats. My 360 is not collecting dust because I have the multiplats on 360. Well I saw that coming you really make the fanboys angry today...LOL!!! A bubble 4 u BEN... ahh sorry my bad!! LOL

EDIT: BTW this Sammo360 guy is really anoying !!! why write the same BS 30 times...??

Well, seems like the Xbox360 chapter of the Eye of Moron took offense to Ben's article and decided to flood the comment section. At least some of them wrote individual posts instead of simply spamming the same one over and over.

The pity is that Ben's question was about exclusive games out now, not games coming in October/November, not games that have been around since 2008, but current games out NOW. It's not fanboyism to point out that there are in fact very few good, exclusive, Xbox 360 games out NOW. It's a fact, yes everyone has an opinion as to what is a good game, but a quick look at the recent titles on Metacritic shows you everything you need to know. What is fanboyism is to spam a comment section, or arrive with questionable arguments trying to show that in fact someone else is crapper than the 360. It's not about who is crap, it's not about PS3 being better or not. It's a simple statement that there really are no good exclusive Xbox360 games out right now. Xbox Live Arcade games don't really count, that's like trying to point to PSN games in the same manner for PS3. PSN games are, with the exception full game releases such as Warhawk, not really the kind of game Ben was referring to either.

However instead of actually looking honestly at the situation let's all ignite in an orgy of fanboyism.

The unwritten point was really a simple turnabout is fair play. For years Xbox360 fanboys have bleated on and on about the PS3 not having any games, much like the same ignorance that was shown about the PSP. Now, at this moment, the shoe is on the other foot, and the 360 finds itself in the kind of exclusive game drought that PSP owners know all about.

That was, I think, the unwritten point here. Such a pity that those who commented couldn't see that and can't bring themselves to acknowledge the truth of it.

The trash has been taken out.

I really don't give a rat's ass what people think. I asked a very simple question and only because the fanboys reside in a hostile virtual environment do they immediately leap to conclusions. I didn't ask what the 360 HAD coming. I didn't ask for a comparison of PS3/360 lineups. I merely asked for a good 360 exclusive I could play right NOW. That's it.

Not surprisingly, the trolls couldn't handle the answer - which is expected - and had to twist my words. As usual, nobody reads a word beyond the headline and the name of the site, which I've always said is true. Way to go, fankids. Keep proving me right.

I will be honest from the start. I own two 360's and I love them both. Nothing anybody says will make me feel bad about it either so dont even try. I will also never buy a PS3 for actual good and logical reasons. With that being said here are some great games to try out and always remember, friends make it that much more fun and every game has cross-game chat, so if you have friends on live, hit em up.


VIVA PINATA - AN AMAZING GAME TO RELAX TO. IF YOU LIKE LBP THEN YOU CAN APPRECIATE THIS GAME.

FORZA 2 - EVEN THOUGH I GREW UP ON GT I FIND THIS TO BE THE BEST RACING GAME EVER. EVEN THOUGH IT DOESNT HAVE 300 JAPANESE CARS IT STILL HAS THE ONES PEOPLE CARE ABOUT. PLUS THE ONLINE AND AUCTION HOUSE ARE FANTASTIC. THE BEST PART IS THE INFINITE CUSTOMIZATION IT OFFERS. LITERALLY INFINITE.

MASS EFFECT - POSSIBLY THE GREATEST SINGLE PLAYER CAMPAIGN (I FIND THAT A MATTER OF OPINION). ITS STILL AMAZING. PLUS THE SEQUEL IS AROUND THE CORNER.

Definately give Fable and L4D a shot. Both are good games.

Here are some old ones that may or may not be exclusives and were decent to the general public but you may fancy a little more.

Too Human
Shadowrun
Tenchu Z
Last Remnant
Infinite Undiscovery
Eternal Sonata


There are fanboys every where for everything and children have become very acquainted with the internet. Please keep that in mind. Im a manager at a gamestop and of course my employees have their preferences, but what I tell my customers is that Im here to give you what you want. Sometimes its a 360 and others a PS3 and even somteimes, unfortunately, its a wii. I give them all the information and let them decide. I love games and if that labels me a 360 fanboy or an xbot then show me to the tatoo parlor. I'll have microsoft tatooed on me before you can said solid snake.

Thank you. No, nobody here will label you a fanboy for that, least of all me.

However, and this doesn't mean your suggestions aren't good, but I really couldn't get into Mass Effect and being a huge fan of racing simulators and knowing a bit about that sport, Forza has really disappointed me in the past with its supposed "realism." I'm hoping Forza 3 will be much better.

But like I said before, I am looking into Viva Pinata. I like quirky games.

Hey pickles. I'm not a part of the actual website here, but I've been a member of the community for quite a while now.

After reading your post I can tell you that you are not a fanboy. You like the xbox 360 and dont want a PS3.

IMO, the fanboys are the ones that go back and forth bashing eachother constantly about who can piss the furthest.

I work for gamestop too, and I always make sure the customer gets what they want, and not what I want. During your experience at gamesyop have you seen many people that are completely unbiased xbots?? That is what people are always saying, but in the last year and a half working there I Have not run into anyone like that.

Thanks for leaving a civilized post. Unfortunately a lot of the PS3 guys on this site are being fanboyish. At least on this article.

Try to keep on topic guys. Ben asked for some good 360 games to play. He didn't ask who makes better games and better systems, or anything else that doesnt have to do with 360 games.

I understand the corny jokes at the beginning, and he did get some good suggestions from some of the people. But after that it was a just "mine is better than yours" contest.

Less than half of these posts have ANYTHING to do with the topic. It's like there was an outbreak of fanboy on the page.

Well metacritic has 367 PS3 games and 664 for xbox 360. That is at least ~300 games the 360 has taht the PS3 doesn't. A lot of those are probably Arcade titles, but still.

Wikipedia says that the 360 has 697 games (exclusive: 113; multiplatform: 510; console exclusive: 74) (meaning at least 187 games not on PS3)
it says PS3 has 557 (exclusive: 159; non exclusive: 395; console exclusive: 9) meaning at least 168 not on 360.

Of course there are two caveats: THat list is past, present, and future. Second, a lot of PS3 exclusives are only published in JA--which if you live in Japan is great, but if you are US or EU--not so much. (and seriously--if you are in Japan why would you even consider the 360?)

I count about 30 titles in JA but not US (all exclusives).

So seems either way you slice it, you statement seems wrong. and besides--it is beside the point. Ben asked for xbox360 title suggestions and got tons.

That is one of the biggest reasons I haven't bought a 360 yet, plainly because there hasn't been a lot of games that I personally wanted to own/play. Just the Gears series and.... and... I dunno maybe Fable and Mass Effect. Yip that's about it. the rest have been Multiplat that didn't count. So for me personally i didn't want to buy a console and only buy 3-4 games.

But then again it's just my personal gaming preference and my choices just seems to fall on the side of the Sony camp. If things were reversed I'd still choose those games (Uncharted,GT,Folklore,Killzon, GOW, etc) above other titles. If they were 360 exclusives I'd probably have bought the Xbox and waited for a good reason to buy a PS3. But they are not.

Ironically the price of the 360 and the PS3 is almost identical in my country so buying either one is quite expensive. The only people I know that has a 360 bought it to "mod" it and basically play pirate games on the 360. And I will never go that route. If everyone does that we'll eventually have no developers left willing to make quality games for us...

Luckily so far PS3's are fairly save from that...for now. maybe that is another thing to consider when people say the Xbox sell more that the PS3... maybe because it's so easy to "chip" or "mod" a 360? I'm not saying it is but it will be interesting to find out?

Maybe a poll on this subject somewhere will be very interesting seeing it is anonymous after all.

(And pls I'm not trying to cause trouble I'm merely curious to know that. And I think it's a pretty legit question)

The funny thing is, plenty of people would say the exact same thing about the PS3. Uncharted looks ok, and I did enjoy R&C on the PS2, but other than that? meh--not much worth having. In MY opinion. Which is why I don't have one. The 360 exclusives appeal more to me than the PS3 exclusives. Each person's own tastes.

Mr_B: Yeah exactly. Everyone has different preferences when it comes to games. For personally you like the Xbox exclusives more that the PS3's where my taste are the opposite of yours but that doesn't make either one of us right or wrong, or either machine better than the other in that regard.

That's why it's a good thing the two have such different line ups....Diversity is good.

And I must just say thank you for NOT bashing me and giving me a mouth full but instead seeing the point I was trying to make. We both share a love for good games, and even thou ours are different from one another we can at least understand each others point of view...

I also think that's the biggest difference between a gamer and a Fanboy...

(hahaha a bit off topic but have you guys seen that movie Fanboys??? the whole console war makes me think of Star Wars/Star Trek thing going on in that movie.... hahaha)

I haven't seen it.

I do like the looks of some games for PS3. Uncharted and R&Cs. I would like to see a Sly 4--my kids really like those games and they are pretty good (not too hard, but fun).

I have a bunch of games I would like to play on 360--but don't have much time, so I don't get to play that much (aforementioned kids and wife and work take WAAAY too much time ;) )

Well Ben unlike a majority of My peers on this sight I agree with you I too own a 360 and I have been able to keep the dust of it with really only 1 game of late and that is Fallout 3. The reasons are because the 3 DLCs have added a great deal of fun and challenging game play well all but the first one anyway lol. I am on my 3rd complete playthrough and with the added DLC gives you tons of differant ways to play and keep it interesting not to mention the added hours of game play that if you find and do everything can exceed well of 100 hours of gameplay. I also have to say Fable 2 which you already have on your list is just as good with its added DLC and both games don't have a real online feature even though fable allows for co-op. I own Fall out on both consoles and am eager to see the DLC on the ps3 but intul that time the4 xbox360 gets some playtime atleast. Good luck with your quest on finding the games to play.
