sscoott I think importing games is too pricey just for a cover, there is a small place in my game shelf for PlayStation shmups.

However there are still titles released in Japan that don't make it over here (which I find staggering due to how the industry has changed) and a part of me wants to support these titles if they're something I'm in to, which really is just shmups.


Lego Batman 3 comes out tomorrow, which might interest some of you..


I haven't played anything on my PlayStation in a few weeks, got back in Halo. Had a brief go on Port Royale, think I like it the second time round.

I'm glad I never buy stuff when it's new!

My ps3 should arrive today. I've decided to go for the exclusives first. Little Big Planet is coming with it.

What else can I hunt out?

^ That's been my approach too, any multiplats I've been getting for 360. The next game you should get has to be The Last of Us, incredible experience :)

All the Uncharteds, and the sort-of-exclusive No More Heroes is amazing too.

I'd deffo agree with djcarlos about the Uncharted games and i'd add Ico/Shadow of the Colossus HD remake and pretty much all the Ratchet and Clank series.

I bought a PS3 for exclusives too, IMO I would say:

Buy / Good

Uncharted 2&3
Ni no Kuni
Demons Souls
Ratchet and Clank (esp crack in time)
Journey
Flower
Rain
Everybody's Golf World Tour
Valkyrie Chronicles
Raiden 4
Tokyo Jungle

Buy if you like the genre / Ok

Tales of Xillia
Yakuza 3&4
Modnation Racers
Wipeout HD
Last of Us
Sly Cooper
Drakengaard 3

Avoid / Bad

Killzone
Motorstorm
God of War
Infamous
Little Big Planet
White Knight Chronicles
Uncharted 1
Playstation All Stars

There's a lot more but I haven't played them yet. I've found a lot of the exclusives to be extremely over rated, some very good of course, but there is an element of console war / fan boy filtering required on a lot of games for the more neutral gamer.

Avoid Motorstorm and God Of War?

Really?

Surely they should be in the 'if you like the genre' section? I wouldn't write them off as bad. Actually, include Uncharted and Infamous in that list....

I have to disagree with you on every single one of those titles. Also, I'm assuming you mean Killzone 2 and God of War 3, rather than the PS2 HD remakes.

There are some amazing titles in that list...

I played them all, they are very poor games. Uncharted 1 has aged very badly, white knight is a cheesy duff RPG, god of war is a teenage naff fest, killzone has never been good and given how many FPS are available is shouldn't be on anyone's list. If you like them fair enough.

Out of interest what does every one else think the bad exclusives are?

I have to say, aside from white knight chronicles all the others I really don't care for.

gran turismo 5 is quite a decent exclusive and can be found for cheap although it does require an additional download once installed and the online gameplay modes have been pulled. offline is fine though, and it was worth the couple of quid I found it going for.
if you are into disgaea D2: a brighter darkness is an exclusive on ps3.
ico/shadow of colossus remaster is worth a go. as is metal gear solid legacy collection (if you don't own the originals this is probably the one to go for).

For me, KZ 2 sucked, but KZ 3 was okay!

As for exclusives, I mean PS3 has the monopoly for jrpgs now, which it didn't have.

Some exclusives I didn't get along with...

3D Dot Game Heroes
Beyond: Two Souls
Last Rebellion

Are people still collecting for PlayStation 3?

Think I'm almost 10 titles away from having all the games I want :D
