Xbox 360 vs PlayStation 3: 10 Upcoming Exclusive Xbox 360 Titles

Yesterday, we touched on ten exclusive upcoming titles for the PS3 gamers to get excited about. Today we cover the bases and inform you of 10 upcoming titles on the Xbox 360 to get excited about.

Xbox 360 Exclusives – Probably one of the most recognisable titles for the 360 — Fable is to get it’s third installement from Peter Molyneux and Lionhead. After two moderately successful games before it, this one really needs to up the anti if it is to get any sort of praise as the last two have not delivered entirely what was promised.

On to some more big hitters now, and that is definitely the case when I mention Gears of War 3 and Mass Effect 3. Not much is known about these two titles, especially Mass Effect as it has not even been announced yet. But its sure to be a ‘timed exclusive’ rather than a fully fledged one. Gears of War 3 on the other hand gets 10 notches. I’m sure 2011 will be full of Gears of War 3 fever.

Coming from the guys who made Crysis, comes Project Kingdoms. Crytek seem to be putting a lot of work into this one, and although we are judging this on the look of the trailer, you just have to think back to how awesome Crysis was to know Crytek will be doing something special with this.

Along with hardcore controller games comes the exciting alternative of Microsoft Kinect. With it, Microsoft intend to show off what it is all about with two titles, Forza Kinect and Kinect Star Wars. We have seen previews a plenty of the Forza game, and although lacking in features, it does look promising. Kinect Star Wars wowed gamers at E3 2010, lets just see if the public take to the new hand-gestured based technology.

Another Kinect exclusive, Rise of Nightmares is produced by SEGA and some have even compared it to another horror game called ‘D’ that was released in 1995. All I can say is, check out the trailer and see if it lives up to the horror genre. I’m betting that with Kinect, this game could feel very very real.

And to round-up, 3 more less commonly known titles make the Grade. XCom, Codename D and Fighters Uncaged. XCom has been doing the rounds and i’m fairly confident that most of you know what it is by now. Codename D for Kinect on the otherhand is promised to be hardcore. Although it has no form of guns, or swords, we are not quite sure how this will pan out. Fighters Uncaged will use the Kinect technology to gives players an immersive total-body combat experience that takes place on rooftops, alleyways and dirty city docks.

ME1 will not come to PS3, however ME2 is and with 6 hours of bonus single player campaign to catch up PS3 owners on ME1. I guarentee that ME3 will be on PS3. Xbox has no games! At least, no true exclusives other than Halo which is really old, come on 4 games in 5 years? LOL, get another exclusive will you!? Gears is good, but I own that on PC (all shooters better on PC than ANY console) and free online play the PC way. IMO, no need to own RROD/RDOD, pay to play, no browser, disk scratching, overheating,… Read more »

Yeah your right about last years figures, but then also to take into consideration is the fact that last years Xbox figures were doing very well as Halo odst had just been released! Move is very accurate for what ive played and am looking forward to some cool games, but thats it has has a limit! Kinect has sooo much potential (and I know people dont like that word for Kinect) yes there will be devs that just churn out garbage where you play games like *head, shoulders, knees and toes* but give one creative mind this tool and I… Read more »

Ok dont get me wrong, I own ps3 as well and Still play the likes of God of war and am looking foward to Gran turismo like you wouldnt believe, but the majority of AAA titles have been on the Xbox 360 (this generation). I have been a huge fan of sony right from my ps1 days, but when that original Xbox came out it sent shockwaves and eversince I have firmly beleived that Xbox is the way foward. But then you might just call me a Halo fanboy! point is I hate all this flame war and really would… Read more »

Xbox is going to loose the war with a game line up like this and Kinect is going to red ring every old console out there but soon the consoles will link to your cell phone PS3= Android and Xbox=Phone 7 so lets watch that war.

Lets not turn this into a competition, but I happen to own all 3 platforms as well. My opinion is that with the launch of Reach, Microsoft have established the Xbox as the choice of gamers! Xbox is the only console to make an increase in figure, where as sony wont even disclose how many units they sold! If I know one thing its that Microsoft wont be beaten and that means more sweet-ass games and soon. I just cant wait to see when Kinect is used to its full potential and blow everyone away! sony fanboys seem quick to… Read more »

Sadly there's only Gears 3 on that list which interests me. The Kinect stuff won't bother me because I'm not getting Kinect and Mass Effect 3 is so going multiplatform (probably still get it on 360 though) and I'd expect the same from X-com as well. Honestly the PS3 is starting to come into its own, its exclusive line up is very strong indeed. I'm just happy I have both. I'm sure Microsoft will have a few more games up their sleeves this year that we've yet to hear about, they better have any way because the list above looks… Read more »

Gears Fans,

OK, if we have to wait until holiday season 2011, hopefully the brains over at Epic Games will use this extra time to add even more awesome features to the game.

I just read a post about Epic releasing a GoW3 multiplayer Beta in the Spring of 2011. In fact, you can check out a short video trailer showcasing the latest multiplayer capabilities and weapons in GoW3 at:

Peace,

P.S.

what a bunch of **** exclusives(apart from gears. mass effect isnt exclusive). i just dont understand how microsoft can expect anyone to buy a 360 anymore when it has a severe lack of good exclusives.

If these are all the exclusive games that are going to be released, then XBox is in hot water. Fable III and the Kinect games are the only exclusives that are coming in the near future. Gears of War 3 is not going to be out until Fall 2011 🙁 Codename Kingdoms does not have a release date yet. If what I am thinking is true, then Microsoft better prays that Kinect does well and the multiplatforms keep the console alive until Gears comes out. For PS3, I see a lot more diversity. Its exclusives include genres of sandbox, platformer,… Read more »

The only actual confirmed exclusive here is Gears 3(And the Kinect rubbish, but I don't count those as actual games personally, even they are priced as such) far as I can see. Where is the first party support? So much for not abandoning the hardcore gamer in favour of Kinect. "Coming from the guys who made Crysis, comes Project Kingdoms. Crytek seem to be putting a lot of work into this one" What are you basing this on? Seems to me like they're putting all their effort into Crysis 2 by all accounts. This game exists as nothing more than… Read more »
