Both. But since I am a Final Fantasy fanboy (and proud of it!!) PlayStation for me is the best place to go. Third party exclusives then.

60/40 in favor of 1st party at moment but it seems the mroe vocal repliers got their PS console for that reason.



First party all day.

When I look at my gaming collection it is very Sony studios heavy.



Nobody's perfect. I aint nobody!!!

Killzone 2. its not a fps. it a FIRST PERSON WAR SIMULATOR!!!! ..The true PLAYSTATION 3 launch date and market dominations is SEP 1st

In order of desirability, for me at least, it's:

1) Third-party exclusives - this is the bread and butter of the Sony ecosystem, dating back to PS1. The number one reason to buy a PS system is third-party exclusives. This includes games like Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy VII, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Devil May Cry, Grand Theft Auto III, Metal Gear Solid 3, Demon's Souls, Bloodborne, etc.

2) Third-party multiplats - this is especially true of the PS4, which is basically the 8th gen equivalent of Xbox 360. Third-party multiplats generally play and perform better on PS4. 

3) First-party exclusives -- Sony's first-party portfolio is a mixed bag. Some games - God of War, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, Infamous, Uncharted 2 - are great. Others not so much. Right now, its first-party output sits somewhere between Nintendo in first and Microsoft in third.

GTA III was just a timed exclusive. And I would argue that GT and MotorStorm series are on the same level as the first-party exclusives you mentioned and better than the majority of third-party exclusives.

First-party games. With PS1 it was mostly third-party exclusives. With PS2 however, that changed and even moreso with PS3. PS4 is hard to judge yet but for the timeframe since its release the first-party exclusives have been great, especially since I'm now a PC gamer so third-party multiplats are a non-reason for me.

RPGs are the reason I get PS consoles, aside from DDR being the reason for PS2, haha...


That awkward moment when someone else on VGC owns a PS2 just for DDR...

oh I just realized you're talking about Playstation as a brand and not only PS4. Well if that's the case then I'd say third party and by a long shot.

You're basically putting Sony against the entire industry saving Nintendo/Sega/Microsoft and their 2nd party developers. Sony's internal studio stand no chance because they're greatly outnumbered. Simple as that.

If we're allowed to count Sony's "published" games as First Party, I'd still give the edge to third party exclusives but it would be a lot more comparable.
