PS3 vs. Xbox 360 vs. Wii: Which Has the Best Exclusives?

Published

on

console-warsLet’s not forget about the console wars! There are sale charts, there are fanboys slamming other fanboys’ data, there are all sorts of ways to “decide” the winner of the console wars… One of them is, of course, checking the exclusive games and that’s exactly what we’re planning to do now. So, the battle is on: PS3 vs. Xbox 360 vs. Wii – which console has the best exclusives?

In order to decide the winners, I went to Metacritic, picked up the top five rated console exclusive games for each console (only retail titles released in 2008, of course, and only critics’ rating counting) and now we’re going to check out the results. The drums are rolling, ladies and gentleman, so let’s see the contestants!

The PlayStation 3:

1. LittleBigPlanet – 95
2. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots – 94
3. Resistance 2 – 87
4. Valkyria Chronicles – 86
5. SingStar – 82

AVERAGE: 88.8

The Wii:

1. Super Smash Bros. Brawl – 93
2. Bomberman Blast – 86
3. Boom Blox – 85
4. No More Heroes – 83
5. Mario Kart Wii – 82

AVERAGE: 85.8

The Xbox 360:

1. Gears of War 2 – 93
2. Fable II – 89
3. Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise – 82
4. Tales of Vesperia – 81
5. Ninja Gaiden II – 81

AVERAGE: 85.2

And these are the results – as you can see, different from the sales charts. According to critics, the PlayStation 3 had the best exclusive games in 2008 with an incredible average of 88.8, especially because of the high fliers LBP and MGS. The Nintendo Wii grabs the second place (and I must admit I am shocked to see that – I’ve always bashed the little console for the poor quality of its games), but the Xbox 360 is close with just 0.6 points behind. So please share your thoughts on the matter – do these results shock you?

Please note: Just to make a two things clear: a) I did not include WiiWare/XBLA/PSN titles in the charts. b) Boom Blox IS considered a console exclusive because there are ports of the game on mobiles. Mobiles don’t count as gaming platforms (yet).

    You state that you listed the top 5 “console” exclusive games for each console but conveniently left out Left 4 Dead which has a metascore of 89?

    Why are you ignoring MLB the Show? It has better scores than Singstar (85 vs. 82). Well, it is available for PSP (and PS2?), but it still is exclusive to the “Playstation” brand.

    Left 4 Dead isn’t an exclusive game lol

  5. Calin

    January 6, 2009 at 5:14 pm

    @TehChi: Left 4 Dead is not an exclusive game, as it is available for PC systems as well.

    @Pan Peter: I spent a lot of time thinking about the inclusion of MLB but decided against it because the game is still available on PS2 and PSP consoles which, even though “brand exclusive”, still does not make it a “console exclusive”.

    Trust me all, I have no reason to push forward a console or another!

    I think Wipeout HD should count-but PS3 still wins

    what about left 4 dead? thats an exclusive

  8. Darkie

    January 6, 2009 at 6:26 pm

    You have a perfectly good reason to push one console over another, your a fanboy.

    First off this exact same article has been done already. Second Left 4 Dead is exclusive to 360 as far as consoles go, we ARE talking about consoles here right? Because if you are going to say Left 4 Dead is not exclusive cuz its on PC, then why did you not include PC in this contest?

    If it is not platform worthy enuff to be included in this, then don’t include it conveniently as an excuse to cheat 360 out of one of its best exclusive titles.

    Left 4 dead I reckon should be included as a console exclusive given we are comparing consoles and not all gaming platforms

    Also little big planet is ludicrously overrated

    thats just my opinion tho

    Why would someone even care if a game such as MLB or L4D is partially exclusive or entirely exclusive? The whole point is that it can’t be played on the other competing platforms.

    Also, why would someone even care if the game is a retail game or a downloadble game? The whole point of such a comparison is to include all the best exclusives for such a platform regardless of how you but them.
    Braid, Geometry Wars 2, World of Goo, WipeoutHD – why the hell are these games ignored, especially when it’s obvious they’re all much better than some of the retail titles published.

  11. Calin

    January 6, 2009 at 7:00 pm

    @Darkie: Blame Valve, not me. ;)

    @IA: I did not compare all gaming platforms because I just wanted to stay within the “console wars” – PS3 vs. Wii vs. Xbox 360. I do not claim that the PC does not count (I am actually a core PC gamer), or the DS or the PSP… I just wanted to compare these three consoles and the exclusives.

    @Guy: There’s no such thing as “partially exclusive” – if it’s on two platforms, it’s not exclusive. Regarding the indie games – indeed they are great as standalone games and some of them (like Braid or World of Goo) can clearly compete against full budget games. However, such games generally receive high ratings since they are looked at as “indie games” and some flaws they have are forgiven.

  12. TehChi

    January 6, 2009 at 8:11 pm

    Dude, you clearly stated that you’re dealing with console exclusives. and staying within the console wars. Left 4 Dead is available on only 1 console, the Xbox 360. It’s not available on the PS3 or Wii. It should be included. Your reasoning fails. Period.

  13. caliblue15

    January 6, 2009 at 8:52 pm

    @TehChi… It still doesn’t matter.

    Add MLB 08 for PS3 and L4D for 360, and PS3 still wins… (90.8, 87.4)

    Add World of Goo for Wii and 360 still loses(89,87.4), just face the facts, Wii beat 360 which is sad, and the PS3 had the best exclusives in 08, welcome in 09 and hope Microsoft can bring their A game.

    @Caliblue15
    Your comments just prove your orginal intentions were disingenuous. It’s not about winning or losing. It’s about indentifying that all 3 consoles had great line-ups this year that should have appeased fans of each console. How is the Wii having a great line-up sad? Good games are good games, regardless of who they appeal to.

  15. Andrew

    January 6, 2009 at 9:42 pm

    @Calin
    Regarding the “if it’s on two platforms, it’s not exclusive” point you made:
    Imagine having a new console (priced at 500$ just for the sake of it) that can play ALL X360 games except Ninja Gaiden II, ALL PS3 games except Singstar, ALL Wii games except SingStar and ALL PC Games except Spore.
    How many exclusive games do you have on this console? None. In terms of exclusives, all other consoles beat it because they have one exclusive games.
    But what will be your console of choice? Obviously this new console. Who cares if all of the games are on another platform as well? The important thing is that this console offers more games than any other console. That’s the only thing that matters and if you fail to understand it your logic is flawed

  16. PENGUINKK

    January 6, 2009 at 9:50 pm

    Well, if you’re skipping ’06 and ’07, then this comparison isn’t really comparing the best exclusives. And even if you did include them, the data still wouldn’t tell you anything meaningfull. This comparison is putting way too much value on a select group of people’s opinions. In the end, everyone has their own opinion and each console has its own great games. Trying to support this comparison with those “facts” is practically contradictory.

  17. Daron

    January 6, 2009 at 9:53 pm

    Where is Halo 3 at? This is definitely a messed up list if it has Singstar instead of Uncharted or Heavenly Sword! And seriously…Viva Pinata?

  18. Calin

    January 7, 2009 at 9:07 am

    @Andrew: I did not try to find out which console should people choose to buy. So, yes, the $500 console would have no exclusives and it would definitely be the best pick for a gamer, but it would’ve still lost in this chart. Because here I only checked which console had the best exclusives in 2008, according to reviewers. Not the best console to purchase or whatever.

    @Daron and Penguinkk: Indeed, the list only looks at games released in 2008 and indeed, each console has exclusives others would love to play. I just wanted to see which were considered the best according to reviewers, just for fun, for the sake of having some stats.

  19. Guy

    January 7, 2009 at 3:09 pm

    @Calin:
    Obviously there is such a thing as partially exclusive: If a title is on another platform but you can’t play it on one of the platforms you’re comparing – it’s a point you should consider towards the platform it’s available on. It’s like comparing the Wii and the PS3 asking which platform has better games – but omitting games like GTA4, Fallout 3 and Bioshock from the PS3 list because they’re not “exclusive”.

    As for downloadable games, the last thing you can call these games nowadays is “indie” and your claim that they recieve high ratings because they’re considered “indie games” is pathetic. Did the reviewers give different score to the PSN and retail versions of GT5:P?
    The inclusion of “Bomberman Blast” (which came out in the west only in WiiWare format) makes your claim even more problematic and your entire comparison fails.

    Just to set things straight, here are the real top 5 exclusives for each console which you can’t play on the other two. Do the math yourself:
    X360
    Gears of War 2 93
    Braid 93
    Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 90
    Left 4 Dead 90
    Fable II 89

    PS3:
    LittleBigPlanet 95
    Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots 94
    WipEout HD 87
    Resistance 2 87
    Valkyria Chronicles 86

    Wii:
    World of Goo 94
    Super Smash Bros. Brawl 93
    Rock Band 2 92
    Okami 90
    MaBoShi: The Three Shape Arcade 88

    LOL at all the 360 fanboys crying because their console had a load of garbage games in 2008.

    Don’t worry, i’m sure 2009 will be much bet……….OOPS! How silly of me.

  21. Eli

    January 11, 2009 at 1:40 am

    @Guy

    I recommend you read the introduction part. It says retail only. As far as I know, Braid is downloadable as is Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2, World of Goo, Wipeout HD.

    Also for the Wii… how is Rock Band 2 exclusive? It is multiplatform.

    Just thought I’d clear that up. It would be quite interesting to see brand wises. Like Wii+DS exclusives vs PS3+PSP exclusives vs X-Box 360+Well…Nothing.

    Accept it as it is boneheads !
    Some of you whine like a pack of school girls fighting over the best makeup.
    The PS3 is better, and an XBOX 360 is for people who cant afford a ps3.
    I almost bought a 360 because it was cheaper, but at the end of the day I figured “you get what you pay for”.
    There is a saying that the Subaru Impreza WRX is a poor mans porsche.
    The Xbox360 is a poor mans PS3
    Thats the facts, If you have a 360, sell it on ebay and buy a ps3 – you will be impressed.
    If you dont have either, I suggest you visit your local video store , hire both consoles and then make an informed decision. That is how I made the decision. You will prefer the ps3,
    It looks better
    Games feel better on it (and look better)
    It doesnt feel tinny and rattley like the xbox 360
    Its sleek and quieter
    It doesnt overheat
    Its full HD

    I could go on all day, but do as I said and you will get a ps3, I guarantee it.
    If you already Have a PS3 then you know what I’m on about
    If you have a 360 then deep down you know its true also – I suggest you save your pennies and look for an escape route – in 2009 the ps3 will reign supreme !

    OMG! The Wii had just crappy games last year! The only good game was SSBB. And for the PS3 Little Big Planet Sucks balls! and rest is good. While The XBOX 360 only had two or three good games on that list.

    PS3 and XBOX 360 FTW!!!

    While the Wii is just garbage.

    Who said that the X-box 360 was a poor mans PS3?
    No, it’s a poor man’s gaming PC. -_-
    LOL “Games for Windows”

    DAMN RIGHT GONADIATOR

    you 360 fanboys are just too stubborn, and it’s seriously illogical to even say “partial exclusive” WTH! exclusive is exclusive there is no partial. So just suck it up 360 fanboys and take ur arguement somewhere else because in this website PS3 WON. I could go on all day too. I have both and the PS3 IS alot better. In terms of graphics, entertainment, comfort and it doesn’t overheat. And online is free too!

  29. XXiniteXX

    December 16, 2009 at 2:15 am

    Well I would say the XBox 360 has the best online, as the games are tailored to Xbox live. PS3 has the best graphics and best overall performance, but is definitely lacking on the online front. Have any of you played Metal Gear Online or Warhawk, horrible games. I do not consider the Wii or the PC gaming consoles, because why, why would you buy a Wii when you can get the other consoles? The PC is like the Iphone to me. You’ve got games there but why would you play them.

    Wii has already sold more than PS3 and 360, by millions, especially in japan.

  31. iramo

    aww they barely listed any good 360 exclusives.also left4dead is a Microsoft exclusive.which Adrian explains perfectly. this place is crawling with ps3 fan boys and losers so I have to go

12 Inspiring Ways to Fuel Your Dissertation Writing Motivation

The writing process is inherently complicated. But once you take ownership of your writing, things begin to change. What does that mean to take “ownership” of your writing? It means your writings belong to better or for worse, to you and you alone. If you screw up your courage to write, your ownership of that writing must be respected by your audience-of one or a thousand. Being overly stimulated can also be harmful, as some scholars push to write their academic papers more than their set goals. That is why you need to have dissertation writing motivation so that you can find yourself able to meet your goal the next day.

As William G. Perry Jr. said, “First you make a mess, then you clean it up.” So, don’t give
up if you make a mess first. But if you’re allergic to handling this mess, it’s recommended
that you look for a dissertation writing service online.

In this article, we are going to explain some inspiring ways to fuel your dissertation writing motivation. Continue reading the Article if you need motivation for your thesis or dissertation writing journey.

In this article, we are going to explain some inspiring ways to fuel your dissertation writing motivation. Continue reading the Article if you need motivation for your thesis or dissertation writing journey.

Staying motivated while writing your dissertation is as important as having your dinner because you need food to live and motivation to complete your dissertation. Keeping up with the motivation to write a dissertation becomes harder when you see everyone on a break. Losing motivation can cost you low grades. So, we have provided some top tips to keep your motivation going.

1. Free-writing and Making a Mess

You might think how making a mess can help you get your dissertation writing done. Freewriting is one of those activities in which two and two sometimes add up to five. Freewriting can support you develop an addiction to writing. And don’t worry, almost everyone starts out writing crap.

Start with the small task, learning to write 10 minutes daily. Just start writing no matter what you write. Once you start following freewriting, your thoughts will start to get clearer and cleaner. Once your thoughts get clearer and you seem familiar with your topic, you start out writing good stuff, and then gradually, writing a dissertation becomes easier.

2. Using Behavioural Principles

Using behavioural principles for motivation for your dissertation writing, keep in mind the positive and negative reinforcement. It’s possible to train your mind by punishing yourself for doing something wrong, but it’s inhuman.

So, think of positive reinforcement, like rewarding yourself for each accomplishment. Like using the “Grandma’s mashed potatoes law”: “No dessert until you’ve eaten

your mashed potatoes.” Translated into a writing strategy, say you will get something as a reward for writing 2 or 5 pages that you don’t want to live without. For example, if you don’t feel the day is complete without reading the newspaper or talking to a friend, don’t allow yourself to do so unless you have completed your writing goal for that day.

3. Recognise External vs. Internal Motivation

When you start your degree or write your dissertation, motivators like a degree, a good job, and praise might drive you. However, over the period, one needs to develop internal motivators, like personal interest, passion for the topic, or will to bring a change to the field.

To get long-term motivation, it is necessary to develop an interest in the field. Once your work or profession becomes your passion, you no longer need external motivators.

4. Set Your Daily Writing Goal

It’s important to set daily goals for your dissertation writing motivation. There are three methods for setting goals, but before that, you need to commit to setting realistic goals and dividing them into small chunks.

  1. The first method is the “Sit There Method.” In this method, you sit down to write your dissertation forcertain hours, maybe three hours, a day.
  2. The second method is the “Motivation Method” In this method, you plan on writing each day until you come up with one or two decent ideas.
  3. The third method is the “Many Pages Method”. In this method, you have to pick a fair number of pages and keep the count the same every day.

In our opinion, the “Many Pages Method” performs the best. This method produces a large volume of writing, at least some of which is likely to be useful.

5. Don’t Overwhelm Yourself

Getting stuck and getting out of mind while writing a dissertation is normal. Don’t overwhelm or frustrate yourself on that. If you feel you are going in a circle and not moving forward to some achievement towards completion of the final draft of your dissertation. Just continue writing anything other than your papers. Try limiting your writing time. Say to yourself, “You’re only allowed to write for half an hour.”

Also, try consulting some mentor or advisor to discuss the overall situation of your writing process. If you find no way out, reaching out to a professional dissertation writer is still an option.

6. Funky Exercises for Times When You’re Stuck

If you were always inspired to be a poet, it’s your chance. Write in other forms of writing. Take some time to re-evaluate your writing goals. Many people get stuck in their dissertations because they set unrealistic goals for their writing process.

out of reach goals may kill your motivation. You need to decide practically, not ideally, what a doable writing goal is for you and then start working. Revisit the notes made in the research process and evaluate if you’ve missed any important points. Instead, trying to ask yourself questions or writing about why you feel you’re stuck is a good exercise to do.

7. Keep Encouraging Yourself

Keep repeating encouraging and motivational phrases to yourself. Like “I am capable of completing this dissertation, challenges are opportunities for me to grow and improve.”

Remind yourself of why you started. What did you want to accomplish on the task when you started? Remind yourself that completing this dissertation will open new doors for you.

Saying these affirmations regularly will give you more energy and keep you on track with your dissertation writing motivation.

8. Overcome Procrastination

Procrastination is delaying the work at hand without any reason. In writing a dissertation, procrastination is when you delay writing even though you want to finish it. You face it when you have to make a lot of decisions. Decisions drain your energy and make you feel procrastinated.

That is why you need to pre plan your dissertation writing process. Pre-decide things like which information to add and which to avoid. Don’t think before you start writing about how many pages to write today or if you should write or visit some friend for an outing.

9. Develop a Writing Addiction

Addictions get pretty bad press. But there are bad and good ones. Writing can be one of the good habits to have, or we say, fortunate habits to have. Having an addiction and developing an addiction are two separate things.

To develop a writing addiction, you need to start writing in the first place. A good option is to start writing your dissertation with a freewriting style. Once you find joy and fulfilment in the writing process and a sense of accomplishment from your crafts, you will build a habit of writing.

Habits slowly and gradually become addictions as you get addicted to pouring your heart out and getting praise from your crafts.

10. Overcome Interruptions from Inside and Outside

The interruptions from inside can be your mental conditions, like having anxiety or depression due to some personal or family issues. And factors like unexpected illness or death of some loved ones or a cold that clogs your nose and throat.

You need to overcome these interruptions to focus on writing your dissertation. Everybody can thrash these obstacles to focus on the work. If they had not, they might not have come thus far.

11. Don’t Isolate Yourself

Isolating yourself while writing your dissertation can drain all the motivation you had when you started working. We have seen scholars suffering from isolation while writing their dissertations.

You should try to abstain from writing for longer periods, distract yourself through family time and make plans for healthy activities. You can join some feedback groups; observing the dissertation and engaging with the group will help you think critically about the text, and you will get rid of solitude as well.

12. Join a Summer Dissertation Camp

Joining a summer dissertation camp or fellowship will keep you motivated and active. You can also find time to analyse your dissertation critically and make changes in the writing process.

Plus, you will not get stuck at any stage. If you get stuck, you will have the fellows or someone to advise you on the process, someone who can point out what you’re doing wrong. Joining a summer dissertation camp will save you from isolation as well.

Conclusion

Dissertation writing motivation may disappear more often, and you might think to quit. But quitting is not the solution. In this article, we have tried to inspire and motivate you in different ways. We have discussed how overcoming procrastination and setting your daily goals can help you stay motivated.

We have heard the stories of people who are in their third, fourth, or even seventh year, yeah, you heard it right, seventh year, and some people isolate themselves in the struggle to be focused. That’s not a good thing to do either. Those scholars who don’t find the motivation to write their dissertation or are not into writing can buy dissertation online. Hand over your worries to some trustworthy expert who can write original content for your dissertation and complete it quickly.

Fighting Games on Android

Fighting games have been a major sub-genre of the industry since the dawn of gaming. While the original fist-fighting game came out in 1976, the genre arguably peaked in the 1980s. Dozens of franchises came smashing down arcades, from Mortal Kombat to Tekken.

But gamers do not need to visit the local gaming center anymore to get in on the action, as platform fighters and hand-to-hand combat have long gone mobile. So, are you up for a brawl? Whether you’re into brutal MMA fights or formidable superhero battles, let’s round up some of the best fighting games to play on Android.

Marvel Contest of Champions

While movies and comic books are still at the core of its extended universe, Marvel has also expanded to the gaming medium. Much to mobile gamers’ dismay, though, exhilarating brawler games like Marvel’s Avengers and massive crossovers like Marvel vs. Capcom never made it to smartphones. But Marvel Contest of Champions is more than epic enough to make up for it.

Developed by Kabam, this versus-fighting action game features a pretty strong line-up comprising virtually every Marvel character in the book. Beloved heroes like Wolverine, Spider-Man, and Hulk are all set for battle throughout iconic Marvel locations, such as Asgard, Stark Tower, and Wakanda. Yet players may as well pick supervillains to pit against the good guys. So, assemble the strongest super-heroic team and combine each champion’s unique set of devastating attacks and special abilities. Better yet, this mobile Marvel game allows for competitive multiplayer fighting.

Skullgirls: Fighting RPG

Skullgirls is a solid contender for best mobile fighting game out there. This fighting RPG by Autumn Games has got some incredibly responsive battle animations going for it, and just enough grind to keep players engaged for hours on end. Fun special moves and combos take fast-paced combat to the next level, serviced by colorful background visuals and a jazzy soundtrack that may feel out of place but gives the game that much more flavor.

And all kicking and pummeling aside, Skullgirls has much in the way of the story, too. In an original twist on the genre, this 2D RPG features an all-female cast of quirky yet fierce hand-animated characters. Players may even customize their fighter while searching for the elusive Skullgirl and stopping her from destroying the city of New Meridian.

Mortal Kombat

Alongside Capcom’s Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat is probably the best-known fighting franchise in the world. The series stemmed from the idea of making a video game starring action movie superstar Jean-Claude Van Damme. Funnily enough, JCVD would eventually play center stage in the live-action adaptation of Street Fighter. Still, Mortal Kombat spawned countless installations, TV series, and feature films.

And gamers can now experience the visceral fighting and trademark Fatalities that made the franchise so infamous straight on mobile. Mortal Kombat shows off a whopping roster of over 130 warriors, who level up through challenges of increasing difficulty. Teaming up fighters with matching synergies, mobile players can tackle ferocious enemies in online competitive mode or all on their own. This mobile version of the legendary game also includes a card collection feature.

EA Sports UFC

The intensity of the Octagon translates superbly to the gaming medium. Released by Electronic Arts on multiple platforms, EA Sports UFC quickly became the go-to title for gamers with a knack for mixed martial arts. And the mobile version doesn’t disappoint, pitting up to 97 UFC fighters against one another in heated fashion – and even martial arts legend Bruce Lee as an unlockable bonus. EA Sports UFC may thus be the perfect mobile game to dive into while waiting for the next big superstar comeback.

Meanwhile, prominent fighters like Valentina Shevchenko and Nikita Krylov will keep fans on the edge of their seats in upcoming UFC events. And MMA enthusiasts can even spruce up the experience with a gamble. Reviewers like SBO have laid down the most profitable online bookies for punters to explore. The best sportsbooks offer a range of betting options on MMA, ranging from method of victory to total rounds. Lofty bonuses and welcome packages also await newcomers. And online punters can make bank out of even more sports, from the ultra-popular to the niche.

Fighting games are as old as time. But with improved gameplay and ever-so-striking aesthetics, they’ve remained fresh throughout the decades. And players can now get their fists to do the talking on mobile, from retro titles to inventive entries.
