So earlier on today while having some time to think to myself and to look over some of my games for my 360 that I still haven't played, i started to think about what games the Xbox currently has compared to what the Playstation is currently bolstering.

I'm not on about your standard games here now I'm on about the games that are exclusive to each platform. Over the years the Xbox as always had the edge over the Playstation 3 for many and different reasons, but recently Sony seem to be getting their act together a bit more.
Not only does the Playstation now seem to be dropping in price very slowly but surely, but there list of exclusive titles forthcoming to the Playstation 3 is starting to get larger and larger as time goes on.

Now many people think and believe that Microsoft's Xbox 360 as got some great 360 exclusives fast approaching but in all truth and honesty there not really exclusive when you can get the game on the pc also.

Now lets take the Playstation 3's list of recent and forthcoming exclusive titles e.g. Heavy Rain, Uncharterd 2, Mod Nation Racers, God Of War 3, Socom U.S Navy Seals 4, 3D Dot Game Heroes.

Now lets compare them to the games that the Xbox as for exclusives, all that seem to spring to mind are Alan wake, crackdown 2 which may still be released for pc and halo reach.

Now don't get me wrong them three games alone will probably be great but in terms of how good there going to be compared to what the Playstation line up is or as offered us, then this list seems pretty crappy and mediocre.

Now many of you will get your arguing cap on and say what about the game line up for project natal. Okay so yeah true Microsoft still have not released details on what games and how many games we can expect to see later this year exclusive to the 360s project natal.

But in all honesty I now see natal as Microsoft's last ditch attempt to salvage what life the Xbox currently as left in it.

This shows by the amount of games the Playstation is now getting compared to the Xbox with the list of exclusive titles getting larger and graphic detail improving all the time.

Dont get me wrong the 360 is a great console but its now five years old and its really showing its age, graphic power as been shown and will probably not increase much more now. Limits are being pushed all the time with splinter cell showing how little the console can handle with slow down a lot of the time.

Where as the Playstation is always improving on what's already there. Graphics are always getting better take heavy rain for example no other game in terms of graphics on the Xbox can touch that, And also take the newly announced Socom 4 that wipes the floor with both cod and battlefield in terms of graphics and the ps3 is able to handle them.

If either of these games were to be put onto the Xbox then there is noway the console could handle them.

So my question to you guys now is, how much longer can Microsoft flog its once great machine, and can we expect new details on a new console at maybe next years e3 i expect so.

To me the Xbox is dying a pretty quick death when you take into account everything i have said and things are only getting worse for the console. Hell even the Wii is doing better then it but because of casual fans.

Only thing the 360 really as left to hold onto now is its online play which lets be completely honest spanks anything Sony as offered....EVER!!.

Crappy and mediocre sounds little proffesional and way too biased.

I'm not a halo fan and lately MS is dissapointing me in too many ways but dude... Halo reach won't be anything close to mediocre.

Why? Cause mediocrity stands for something than doesn't have neither extreme strong points nor weaks and man, everyone knows Bungie crafts their games with love. The engine, the tweaks in online gaming... Halo games use to work like switzerland's clocks. ? it won't be as pretty looking as heavy rain ? Maybe. But is Heavy rain as fun and playable as, let's say an older game like halo 3?

I wished I could have had Heavy rain for my xbox 360 but once I knew how it was played I was like no thanks sir, I already own enough movies on my shelf.

Is PS3 improving ? yes (note how long it took) Isn't Xbox 360 getting enough good exclusives ? yes.

Is the 360 on its way to death ? yup. But PS3 and Wii are too. It's just the 360 is older than the others.

I'm sure xbox till has a bright future (at least for a couple of years) and writting and article like this before seeing what E3 will bring feels like a desperate call for attention over this site wich I happen to like.

So I'd say the only mediocre thing arround is the article itself since it offers no useful info at all unless you count an average joe's opinion based on his personal taste. Don't misunderstand me, please. This is my fav xbox 360 site and I'm fine with the guy who wrote that, but not so with the article itself. I'd maybe shove that if it came from a Games Guru but not from an average joe like him (or me).

EDIT: forgot to mention Alan Wake. I don't have high hopes on it and doesn't appeal much to me (obscure+silen't hill... love both but then this ain't new to me) but please remember REMEDY is one of the developers that made history in videogames with their Max Payne. Its narrative, the bullet time... I'd compare it to Tomb Raider yet not as revolutionary. so wether I'll end up liking it or not, I'm sure it will deliver solid and rich entertainment.

That's why PS3's are better :D
everybody seems to be missing my point here im not comparing consoles and saying either is better, the point i was trying to make was im getting really fucked off with how many exclusives the ps3 now gets from third party developers compared to the 360.

Mainly because of how advanced the ps3s tech is compared to the 360s.

I love my xbox more then a ps3 so dont get saying im biased please

I think the Xbox360 is perfect, it just needs a few hardware upgrades. So make an Xbox 360-2 or something... (but with a better name)

but remember, good graphics don't make a good game.
