PSU has a comparison chart showing the exclusive titles coming out for the 360, Wii, and PS3. It made me think two things:
1. I’m glad I have a PS3. Most of the exclusives (with a few rare exceptions) on other platforms don’t interest me as much as the PS3 exclusives. Which is why I bought a PS3 – it has the kind of games I like. For others, their choices are different.
2. I got to thinking about which exclusive I want the most. I am really quite interested in PS3 Killzone, but there just isn’t enough information out there yet to warrant a vote for that game, plus it’s probably not going to be a 2007 title. So I have to choose something in 2007. I think I’d have to go for Warhawk. I’m in the beta, and I know it’s a blast to play. I just wish my friend and I wouldn’t constantly get kicked out of games (right at the start) for playing splitscreen.
So take a look in the sidebar and choose your most anticipated 2007 PS3 exclusive game.

The Bourne Identity is one of my favourite books. The book sequels get progressively worse, so never mind those. Luckily for me, both The Bourne Identity movie and the sequel, The Bourne Supremacy, were both very good movies. So I’m looking forward to the third movie, The Bourne Ultimatum, this summer more than any other movie.
Of course, the movies are nothing like the books, and that’s probably why they’re so good. They chart their own course. For example, in the book, Bourne’s nemesis is a dude named Carlos (a real life terrorist). Carlos is currently behind bars, which would make it seem kinda silly for Bourne to be going after him.
But now there’s also a Bourne video game – The Bourne Conspiracy. Will it be any good? I doubt it. Why? Because it’s a movie based on a movie based on a book. But I’ll give it a rental at least to see how it fares…
IGN takes a look at the SplitFish FragFX for the PS3. What is it? It’s a fragmeister! It lets you use a mouse and nunchuck instead of a regular controller to play first person shooter games to your utmost ability. No more panning the joystick around until it gets over to the baddy, who’s moved around since. Instead, just point and shoot. Much more PC like, and a lot more accurate.
Colour me skeptical, but I didn’t think this thing would fly. But it seems to be able to mimic a mouse pretty well, if the review is to be believed.
Anybody want to lend me one to try out? I’m not the best (or even middlest) of FPS gamers, so any advantage I can get is a good one…
The time is almost near. Killzone on PS3 has a lot to live up to after the infamous E3 ’05 CGI footage, so come July 10th, around 150 people will see for themselves whether it will be a killer app for the PS3 or “just another FPS”. Heck, it could even be both. 😉
