I enjoyed plenty of PS3 exclusives last gen. Regardless of the ratio, there were way more quality titles last gen, whether I enjoyed them or not.
Your point about acclaim is valid but already addressed in the post I made, they have quality this gen but not quantity imho. Previous gens they’ve had plenty of both.
I don’t care what some supposed people maybe potentially said about sales six+ years ago wherever they potentially allegedly said it. How does that even relate to anything I said? Some people here really need to get over what some people allegedly said a decade ago because those members are apparently long gone and how in the world am I supposed to defend or chime in on something strangers said years ago lol. Nothing in my disappointment with PS4 has to do with Xbox. I’ve posted on here plenty of times that I don’t care for MS games mostly either.
You may not care, but the fact is that if sales of Sony 1st party is a lot higher and the quality as well then hardly you can say that they increased their reliance on 3rd party. But let's the numbers do the talking.
PS4 exclusives scores by metacritic PS3
95+ - 1 3
90-94 - 9 (2 by 3rd parties, with one now being multiplat) 10 (1 by 3rd party)
85-89 - 12 (6 by 3rd parties) 16 (2 by 3rd party)
80-84 - 12 (5 by 3rd parties) 18 (3 by 3rd party and one prologue)
Considering we still have at least 18 months with know Death Stranding, TLOU 2, Dreams and GoT to be released the comparison doesn't seem as bad as you paint on the quantity of quality titles on both system, plus there will be an online game made by ND in place of the MP for TLOU2. And since you agreed on the critical acclaim I don't need to reinforce that. Now let's see best sellers.
PS4 Sony published by VGC (yes PS4 will be damaged due to digital not tracked) PS3
10M+ - 1 1
5-9,99 - 5 4
1-4,99 - 20 28
Total 83,33 105,65
Considering lack of the traking for digital and the games that will release Sony will have sold more SW on PS4, also will have more games selling over 5M and over 10M than PS3.
So all of that shows that Sony have depended less, made better quality titles, gained more acclaim and sold more than PS3. Basically none of your points really stands, unless of course you want to only count the total quantity of titles released independent of quality or sales (besides that the total of titles amount that meets sales or critic isn't that much different, and if we were on both critics and sales PS4 would be wining).
