Console Exclusives Need to Go

It is 2012. We should not be living in a world in which I cannot play The Last of Us without buying a six year-old, $250 console. I mean, look at this:

Metal Gear 4 wasn’t enough, but goddamn if The Last of Us pushes me to it. Probably not really, but who knows what kind of holiday sales there will be between now and then. Hopefully one that includes the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus HD pack, MGS4, and… err, the Uncharted series? Am I missing something else exclusive to the PS3 worth playing?

Also, looking forward to Far Cry 3. Luckily, it will be on the PC.

  1. I thought MGS was an exercise in developer/designer self gratification. But I quite enjoyed Valkyeria Chronicles (Tales?) and God of War.

  2. Should have bought a $300 three year old console like I did three years ago. ;)

  3. From what I hear, Heavy Rain is also worth it. I have certainly been tempted by that title enough to get a PS3. I suspect that temptation shall break me down in the very near future.

  4. I’ve been told that Shadow of the Colossus has a beautifully told story – so I may have to buy a PS3 just to play this
