With No Huge PS3 Exclusive, Will Sony Fans Turn To Halo 4?

It isn't often that Sony has a bare holiday season and in truth, one could argue that this fall isn't "bare."

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale should be a really solid title, and everyone is hoping that Assassin's Creed III: Liberation gives the PlayStation Vita a much-needed boost. But obviously, there's no Uncharted or Gran Turismo or God of War or anything like that to wow the PS3 players. And that being the case, are they more likely to turn toward Halo 4?

I'm not saying they'll run out to buy an Xbox 360 (if you don't have one yet, you probably never want one), but for multiple console owners, it could be tough to ignore something like Halo 4. It's getting rave reviews already and gamers are gamers...they just want to play the best stuff available. I've played every Halo through to completion - yes, that includes ODST - and I have every intention of playing Halo 4. Well, eventually. I don't really have the time right now, as you might've guessed.

I only wonder if the blockbuster for the 360 is enough for Sony fans to just forget about the PS3 for a month or so. Of course, the PS3 has Beyond: Two Souls, The Last Of Us and God of War: Ascension on the horizon, so the defection will only be temporary. Still, it doesn't necessarily bode well for the current holiday season...

I strongly doubt it.

Halo has been around for years now, if people really wanted to "turn to Halo", they would have done so by now.

Besides, we have plenty of great PS3 games to enjoy as it is, and more coming on the way next year.

Yep. Anyone who wanted to play any of the Halo games probably already has a 360 at home. I doubt that Sony fans would ditch their PS3 just because X game got good scores on a console for the competition.

And I happen to know quite a few people who have never owned a PS3 but will get one in order to play The Last of Us (mostly 360 users) and Playstation All Stars (lots of Nintendo gamers, believe it or not).

As someone who has had an Xbox for years, I must say it was tempting; especially since most my friends will be getting it. However I decided against it, mostly because all my budget went to ps3 games and since. Don't want to buy Xbox live gold

Concerning the first paragraph, "are they more likely to turn toward Halo 4?"
I'd say those who are hardened PS fans probably wont budge as they have hardened their heart to anything Halo for some years now.

moving on...
"but for multiple console owners, it could be tough to ignore something like Halo 4."
Yep. I love Halo games and this new one looks like a champ.
Im a gamer with loyalties that don't belong to any one sect. I just like games. I do love Halo. I'd love it on a Playstation or PC just the same as on a 360. Granted, I prefer not paying for online play, so I'd say I'd rather have it on PS3 or PC. If Nintendo's hardware was more power driven I'd be fine with it on a Nintendo platform, too.

This doesn't mean I don't have platforms that feel like they hold greater value to me. Right now the PS3 happens to have the greatest abundance of software this gen that appeals to me and my gaming interests so it's my first platform of choice. But hey, if Sega came along with a Dreamcast 2(probably wont ever never happen ;) and delivered a ton of awesome content that was better than the rest, I'd have them as a preferred platform instead =)

Nah. I don't own a 360 so there's no reason for me to buy it anyways. I certainly won't go purchase a new system for it.

Aside from that theres so Many games coming out this fall I already have a backlog of 4 games I've bought in the past month and that doesn't even include CoD! Actually, correction it's 5,but I enjoyed MoH so much I couldn't put it down and finished it. But of course there is still the MP, so yeah... NO, there is no way I'd get Halo 4 even if I did own a 360!

There is no way that I'm purchasing a 360 just for one game. And as good of a shooter Halo 4 is (90 average on Metacritic), I'm getting pretty tired of shooters.

Hate to admit it, but I'm getting a Halo 4 model 360 since the 5th replacement of my original (all free due to warranty btw) just crapped out. A game, two controllers, a headset, and I believe a 320gb hdd for $350 seems like a damn sweet deal to me.

If I had a Xbox I would probably pick up Halo... But I don't.

I don't really see a lack of a BIG PS3 exclusive as such a bad thing right now thou. I missed out on quite a couple of titles I still wanted to get so maybe the lack in a big exclusive gives me the chance to catch up on them a bit.

Besides once Beyond and the Last Of Us hits this "dry" spell will be loooong forgotten.

If I was running things I'd showcase all the PS3's great exclusives over the years and the new hardware models plus Vita in some killer advertisements and plaster them all over TV over Christmas to grab at the gaming market that has been hiding from facts the whole generation.

Basically just target anybody hiding in a corner going "All I need is Halo, Gears, and CoD" while holding their ears.

This time of year is not the time to sit around on advertising dollars.

I like that idea. The exclusives has over the years grown to a good enough stack to make quite the medley, "look at ALL this you only get on the PS!". Beats one single title - at least in my book.

Yeah I really like that idea.

There's so many good games being released these days.

I'll soon enough get my shooter fix with Crysis 3 next year, and until then I got Borderlands 2, Dishonored, Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed 3, Resident Evil 6, Rocksmith, NFS: Most Wanted... None of whom I've not even *started* playing yet.

So missing out on one title - regardless of quality - means nothing to me. Absolutely nothing. Well, unless it was a good RPG. But it's not. So I'm fine.

If they already have an Xbox ofcourse they are going to buy it. If i had one i would buy it and im not even a fan of the series. Its just a decent game with a decent storyline. But i dont, Thus i wont. I believe its passing the point of exclusives, and better gaming, each is happy to their own. For this generation atleast. Prepare for another console war within a couple of years though...

I have no problem with Halo, it's a series I can respect, but I personally have no interest in it. My friend bought a 360 to play Halo and he seems to feel uneasy about the new one - as Bungie are not Developing Halo 4, we all know what has happened when a series shifts developers hands (Silent Hill, I'm looking at you!)

So no, Halo 4 does not interest me at all, but I feel it has been a flat year all round. So much so that I did buy a Wii and started playing The Last Story & Pandora's Tower (Xenoblade will be soon) So maybe some people will do the same and take interest in Halo this time around.

I was a pretty big fan of the Halo games for a while. I adored the first one, me and a buddy even found a program that let you plug my Xbox into my computer and have online multiplayer.

I bought a 360 for Halo 3 and really liked it. But for the last few years my 360 just has not seen much use. Gears 2 was the last game I actually finished on the system. I got Reach over a year ago, but its still in the backlog. I also plan on getting Gears 3 someday. I can't believe that game is still going for $30!

I'm not going to run out and get Halo 4 just because there isn't a big hardcore PS3 exclusive coming out this year. I'm sure plenty of people who consider the PS3 their main system, like myself, will play it if they already have a 360. But I don't think any of them are going to pick up a 360 just to play it.

I'm getting Halo 4 because I'm a big fan of the franchise but doesn't mean I'm going to turn away from the PS3. I'm still going through AC 3 and I doubt I'll be done with it by Tuesday and then I'm getting Hitman on the day that game releases. Sure those are multiplats but in the case of AC 3, the premier version is on PlayStation so each console will get plenty of use. Last year PS3 had all the big exclusives, this year it's a little light in terms of star power but there's still something to be said about having the best version of a well-know, and well-liked, multiplat that is certainly in the top 3 games released so far this year.

well in order for Sony Fans to flock to Halo 4 due to Sony's lack of exclusives right now, they would first have to be Xbox fans as well.. For example someone like me who only owns a PS3 isnt gonna go out and buy an Xbox just for Halo 4 because Sony doesnt have a big exclusive out to compete with it.... that would be.. odd

Having no huge PS3 exclusives is a blessing. I have a backlog right now that will take me a year to get through. With 16 more game purchases from January through April 2013, I will probably be playing PS3 well after the PS4 comes out. No need for an Xbox. Even though, I'd love to play Lost Odyssey.

Since I already own a 360, yes I'll be turning to Halo. My 360 basically only gets used because of the Halo and Gears franchises, but I do sink a lot of hours into each game. This looks like it'll be my game of the year, a few reviews peg it as the best Halo in the series which is impressive considering Bungie wasn't a part of it.

I can't see this. Quite frankly, and I know there are a lot that will disagree, but Halo looks like about 20 other action titles I have seen. I don't think it's anywhere near the big draw it once was. There was a time during the first Halo release that people bought the XBOX to play Halo. I haven't really seen that happen anywhere since. I definitely don't think it will make people switch consoles.

A good game is a good game. I am a Sony fanboy, but I love playing the Zelda games from Nintendo.

Real gamers do that sort of thing.

End of Line.

Nope, all of the Halo series is rehashed generic FPS hype that somehow no one ever realizes is just the same game over and over. Yeah, they add new guns or build onto the game engine, but what do you get in the end? The same game. Almost no one who is an FPS fan cares anything about story and they just play the multiplayer for hours until the new one comes out, and tey buy the same thing. There's this guy I know that pre-ordered Black Ops II and guess what? First thing he's doing is going straight to online multiplayer. The hype for the FPS genre is for mindless gamers who buy whatever is in front of them.

Absolutely not. Halo 4 is such old hat for anyone other than halo and 360 extremists.

I actually don't even know anyone that plays a game and, once they're done with it, has nothing to do. Everyone I know, myself included, has a backlog 50-100 games strong dating back generations. Not only that, we love to replay cherished titles annually like FFVII or Fallout 1-3 or MGS. Only casual gamers who don't play pretty much everything would be sitting on their hands every time they are done with an exclusive.

Sorry but your dumb to even link these 2 together. PS3 has its own smash hits, whether top AAA games, or lower, They still keep us busy
