Main reason you own a PS console 1st or 3rd party Exclusives?

1st Party Exclusives 155 62.50%
3rd Party Exclusives 93 37.50%

Third party and that it was the preferred console among friends this gen. Last gen we were all on the 360, and depending what the next gen reveals we may very well switch back to Microsoft... It's why that first year of release is so crucial to consoles.

I still get Nintendo systems as they have exclusives I want badly enough, but I'm not quite there with Sony... The ps4 is just the most well rounded of the three.

Main reason I buy PS consoles is for the third party multiplats. All the exclusives are just the icing on the cake

Not logical, if multi plats were thé main reason you could go on Xbox, but if you ask yourself what is thé main reason you go on PS over Xbox, which is thé question hère i suppose, first party and 3rd party exclusives are thé obvious answer



For me its both, it brings a huge variety of games 

Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m


First party. Without any question what-so-ever.

PS4 and PC gaming


PC Specs:
AMD Ryzen 9 3900x
Zotac Nvidia RTX 2070 Super
32GB DDR4 Corsair Vengence Ram 3200 mhz
1TB Samsung Qvo SSD
Corsair Spec-Delta Case
Asus ROG B450-F Motherboard

Tough choice as Sony has amazing 1st party games, but in the end it's 3rd party for me. The love for JRPG is too strong in me xD

Both, but with a fairly significant edge towards third party exclusives, especially if you consider their "second party" developers (namely, Insomniac) as third party.

As a huge JRPG fan, you can't compete with Playstation's third party exclusive JRPG line-up. The aforementioned Insomniac also gave us the good Spyros and Ratchet and Clank.
But at the same time, Sony's first party gave us The Last of Us. And that's pretty much a good enough reason for me, despite me not being a fan of a lot of Sony's big first party exclusives, namely God of War, Gran Turismo, LittleBigPlanet, and Killzone.

I buy them for JRPGs.

Bet with Xander XT: 

I can beat more games on his 3DS than he can on my PSVita in a month. Loser has to buy the winner a game on his/her handheld Guess who won? http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=193531


just for games in general tbqh

Third-party exclusives > Third-party multiplats / First-party exclusives.

I didn't add an option to the poll for both as I wanted to see what the actual "Main" reason was even if your for both it must be 50.0001% vs 49.9999% either way :)

Then it's 50.0001% in favour of 1th party then :)

third party exclusives like Bloodborne
