One of the PlayStation 3's biggest selling points? The top-notch exclusives, which seem to set a new quality bar every year.
And it only takes one look at 2011 to see that Sony is poised to make another big splash in the exclusive department, and at least one analyst agrees. After God of War III , Heavy Rain and Gran Turismo 5 in 2010, the lineup for the PS3 in 2011 looks somehow even more impressive, and EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich is one of the first to put a professional voice to what many have already said. In speaking to IndustryGamers , Divnich stated:
"With Killzone 3, Resistance 3, Uncharted 3, and Infamous 2 all set to release in 2011, Sony is on track to deliver one of the most impressive line-ups of exclusive titles in the history of video games."
The article also reminds us that the PS3 is only a few million units behind the Xbox 360 in the worldwide sales tally, and most analysts believe Sony's machine has a good chance of overtaking the 360 – perhaps once and for all – this year. Furthermore, we might even see yet another price cut for the PS3, which has seen the original price tag of $600 slashed in half over the past four years. This, combined with the growing popularity of Blu-Ray, might seal the deal.
But of course, we care most about the games. And boy, there's gonna be a lot of 'em this year.
