While there has been a lot of talk of the next generation of home gaming consoles, there are many who just want to concentrate to what they have now. There is a lot of tribal support for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 with fans on both sides claiming to have the best hardware. But which console has the best exclusives?
Everyone will have their own views on which console is best and which has the best software and features, but both the Xbox 360 and PS3 are great machines in their own right no matter which side of the fence you sit on. There is even some lucky enough to own both units and have the best of both worlds.
The Xbox 360 was the first of the current generation of consoles to get its big release. It has some great franchises available for its owners which include the likes of Alan Wake, Halo, Fable, Gears of War, Forza Motorsport, and Left for Dead amongst others.
You may not agree that the games are any good or can think of some better titles which are exclusive to the Xbox 360. The PlayStation 3 is arguably has better specs than the Xbox 360, but the console got off to a slow start.
Some of the exclusives on the PS3 include the likes of Uncharted, Gran Turismo, Killzone, LittleBigPlanet, Ratchet & Clank to name but a few. The PS3 and Xbox 360 are not alone in having some great exclusive games, as even the old Nintendo Wii has the likes of the Mario franchise and Zelda.
This is only a few of the exclusives available for all the consoles good or bad, and there will be many not listed in this article. We have also seen Xbox 360 owners getting Call of Duty DLC earlier than PS3 owners, which although not exclusive can be frustrating for PS3 owners.
Personally I currently have a PS3 and Wii, but am looking to get the Xbox 360 soon as my kids keep going on about the Microsoft Kinect. Whether after purchasing it I get anywhere near it remains to be seen, but wherever your loyalties lie there are some great games to enjoy. Take part in our poll below and tell us what you think.
