1st party I like Killzone, Infamous and Driveclub. I will love Uncharted, R&C, TLG and Horizon, best game on ps is a third party exclusive. Bloodborne



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Honestly... both.

Looking back, my PS1 library was slanted towards 3rd party games - Final Fantasy; Metal Gear Solid; Ridge Racer; Tekken. Many of the games were exclusive, but ther ewere a few multi-plats in there too - your Resident Evil's etc.

But surprisingly, a large amount of my PS1 library was Sony published, which at the time I considered first party since they didn't have much of a first party. Actual internally-developed games like Ape Escape or WipEout mixed in with Crash Bandicoot; Spyro; Syphon Filter etc.

This carried on to PS2 - some of the same third parties (Metal Gear Solid; Final Fantasy); some new ones (Timesplitters; SSX) and some of the same first parties (Ape Escape; WipEout) with some new ones (Ratchet & Clank; Jak & Daxter).

Since then, the industry has morphed and I haven't enjoyed the same third party stuff as much. Stuff like MGS and FF still exists and I still buy it, but games like Timsplitters and Ridge Racer have pretty much died out. All the niche third party stuff I loved on PS1 & 2 - Terracon; Gregory Horror Show etc., is long gone. It's rare that a game comes out of nowhere and surprises me like things on PS1 & 2 did.

My tastes are third-party Japanese now (your NIS; XSEED; Atlus games etc.) with a splattering of Sony stuff in there too (I still buy Ratchet; InFAMOUS etc.) And occasionally some European-published third-party stuff like Tropico or Dead Island - don't even ask me why European, but they just seem to still make games that excite me whereas USA largely seems to be still chasing the shootbang crowd.

Anyway, I'm rambling. Both is the answer, I couldn't really pick.



I bought a PS4 because of Last of Us, Uncharted, In infamous (3rd?), and Beyond Two Souls. I love games that have an amazing story, which Playstation teens to have the beSt of imo. I love their first party.....but isn't an exclusive an exclusive either way. Never noticed and differnce tbh between 1st party and 3rd party,...before I joined here I disn't even know Sonys first party outside of Naughty Dog.
They're just something for everyone, not primary shooters and racers.

First Party exclusives (50%) vs third party exclusives (30%) vs third party multiplats (20%) for me. :P

That's why it's my main system this gen.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Both :) Unlike Nintendo where they lack third party support and unlike Xbox where their first party titles don't appeal to me, Sony has the best of both worlds.


My thoughts exactly.  Over half my PS3 games are exclusive (excluding ps+ games) and most of those are first party.  The rest are Sony published franchises like ratchet and clank and heavy rain that wouldn't exist without Sony

Technically insomniac is 3rd party but they really should just join Sony

Looking at my library, 1st party, but I do enjoy 3rd part games too.



i own PS consoles for first party and third party games. Stuff like Uncharted, Killzone and GoW. also third party games like RDR, GTA and Farcry.



Both, but the 1st party is really strong to me.
If I were to pick any system to play only firty party, it would still be the PS.
