    No I'm not a plant and no the intrusive Ads on the side haven't made me decide this. :)

    I'll be buying multi platform games on the Xbox, but for PS3 exclusives....These are the games I'm going to get started with I reckon.(let me know if they're good/bad choices)

    GOW 3
    MGS 4
    Journey
    Valkyria Chronicles
    Uncharted 2
    Heavy rain

    and then ICO 3 (chortle) and Beyond Two souls looks cool.

    This'll be a 200+ investment so is it worth it? I'm fucking late to the party but I want some cake.

    Let's be honest, you're getting it anyway, you just want to alleviate any guilt about spending triple figure sums on a new toy.

  • Deleted user 10 April 2013 22:19:12
    Yes, absolutely.

    And my advice is to get a second hand console off eBay or the Swapsies thread, you'll save a fair bit.

    And rent all the games off Lovefilm.

    i only came on board about 6 months or so ago and havent regretted it....

    with ps+ as well, theres a ton of gaming out there to catch up on

    got one for the exclusives but havent touched my 360 since.....
  • Deleted user 10 April 2013 22:21:57
    i say the investment is def worth it. I would def give uncharted 1 a try as well.

    I'm trying to quickly think of exclusives of the top of my head. What about little big planet 1/2. So much content. Infamous is pretty fun too.

    On the indie side, yup journey is a must, and there previous title Flower is great. The pixel junk range of titles are def worth a punt too. Monsters, Eden and shooter are all great.

    Judging by all your enthusiasm I'm gonna do it :)

    I'm still loving my Xbox so I doubt It'll be left collecting dust Dr, but I'd like to be proved wrong.

    Yeah think I'll go down the 2nd hand route Syrette(sorry sony) But renting games doesn't feel right to me.

    Thanks for the game tips joel, they're all going on the list....Eeeee my Christmas!

    To be fair if the roles were reversed it'd likely be the same for a new 360 owner.

    The Last of Us and Beyond being the two obvious future exceptions, Ni No Kuni and GoW: Ascension the two recent exceptions.

    You should play all the Uncharted games, in order. 2 is the best but 1 and 3 are still good.

    I did hear 2 was the best that's why it's the only one on my list, but i guess I should play them all. it's only fair :)

    What's wrong with Dark Souls? Isn't that the superior sequel?

    I know next to nothing about these titles and have played neither. Just assume Dark fixes whatever Demon's got wrong.

    How soon? As in soon now or soon later?

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Thoughts?

    If you ever start a toast thread I'll be talking about PS3 in it, just so you know

    It's different, but not better. Dark is broader in scope and has more of an open world design, but the PvP is pretty broken as it's full of exploits, and I didn't find the world or characters as compelling.

    If you're making toast then may I recommend that you buy your bread from the reduced basket; my local Tesco Express has loaves with a couple of days' date on them for 8p.

    Speaking as a PS3 owner of 4.5 years and a 360 owner of 5 weeks, I wouldn't agree.

    360 pad is gash for fighting games, I'll probably still be playing Wipeout HD in 5 years time, and the PS3 absolutely piddles on the 360 as a media centre. Looking forward to playing GoW: Ascension and The Last of Us. Recent/upcoming titles on the 360... not a lot.

    You'll be needing these too:
    Demon's Souls
    Wipeout HD/Fury
    Motorstorm: Pacific Rift
    Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time, HD Trilogy
    Superstardust HD

    It is well worth picking up a PS3 for the exclusives.
    Likewise for those people that only have a PS3 is also worth picking up a 360 for the same reason.

    PS3 exclusive innit.

    Dark is and isn't a sequel. The world is totally different in terms of setting, characters and how you progress through them (which isn't a big deal on paper, but when you sit down to play Demon's, it really is).

    I probably prefer Dark overall, but if we're talking exclusives, Demon's is pretty much a mandatory purchase.

    Indeed, Trials Evolution has been my most played game over the last few weeks. Almost worth the price of entry alone.

    Having played a large percent of the exclusives, I would say my top 3 retail ones are:

    Heavy Rain, I loved this game.
    Uncharted 2
    Infamous 2.



    Play my 360 99% of the time, but as soon as The last of us gets released that will change for a while, also getting Ninokuni soon:-)
    I will also more than likely pick up Deadly Premonition DC, I so wanted to enjoy this on the 360, I was even going to import Red Seeds Profile, the QTE totally ruined it for me, the dc has fixed them to a degree.
