White Knight Chronicles – A lengthy Level 5-developed Japanese RPG.

PS3 Flower

Top 40 Playstation 3 Exclusive Games – 21-30

Flower – Part game, part stress-busting experience. A must-have PSN download.

Disgaea 3 – Tactical RPGs aren’t for everyone, But Disgaea is one of the best in the genre.

Singstar – For karaoke fiends everywhere. Also perfect to annoy your neighbors with.

PixelJunk Eden – Another PSN download, and one which will frustrate, entertain, and soothe in equal measure.

Socom: US Navy SEALs Confrontation – An online-only third-person tactical shooter similar to Warhawk.

Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest For Booty – Better looking but shorter than Tools of Destruction.

LocoRoco Cocoreccho – Is it a game? Maybe, but it’s definitely madness personified.

Motorstorm 2: Pacific Rift – Drive through dirt, dust, and mud in this not-quite-as-good-as-the-original racer.

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm – A 3D fighter featuring cel-shaded graphics and based on the Naruto anime.

Crash Commando

Crash Commando – A PSN exclusive, Crash Commando is an addictive side-scrolling multiplayer shooter.

PixelJunk Monsters – A very strange tower defense game which is another PSN exclusive.

Everyday Shooter – A music-based multi-directional shooter which plays like Rez Lite.

Echochrome – A simply designed yet frustratingly difficult puzzle game that plays with perspectives.

Buzz: Quiz TV – Does for pub quizzes what Singstar does for karaoke. Social and very competitive.

Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds – A cartoon golf game for those bored with Tiger Woods.

Ridge Racer 7 – The first decent racing game on the PS3, now looking a little dated.

Time Crisis 4 – An on-rails, lightgun shooter. A ludicrous plot takes away from the enjoyment somewhat.

Noby Noby Boy – From the makers of Katamari Damacy comes this strange PSN exclusive.

FlOw – A prequel of sorts to FlowerflOw is a highly playable gaming experience.


Not all of these games will suit all tastes, but they represent (at the time of writing) the best exclusive Playstation 3 games you can buy with your hard-earned cash. The Top 10 are indispensable, the Top 20 should all be in your collection, but the whole of the Top 40 represent the best exclusive games to suit all tastes.

As always, we welcome your opinions. Are there any games we missed that belong on the list? Any that are on there which shouldn’t be? Be sure to look out for more Top 40 lists soon. Next, it’s the turn of Xbox 360 exclusives. Which should be fun.

    Wow great list. I have a lot of the games listed.

    I’m really looking forward to White Knight and Demon’s Souls. And I will probably finally check out Disgaea 3 next month when the trophy patch is released.

  2. Bourne:
    June 29th, 2009
    R2 at number 6? I think not. Swap R2 with R:FOM and we have a deal.
  3. Bourne:
    June 29th, 2009
    Also i’d like to add i think the list is pretty solid actually.
  4. Roca.:
    June 29th, 2009
    I have 43 out of the 40 games u listed, but when i get Demon’s Soul and White Knight Chronicles i’ll have 45 of them. I think you forgot Eye of Judgment and Super Stardust HD on ur list.
  5. Bourne:
    June 29th, 2009
    math fail ^
  6. Roca.:
    June 29th, 2009
    lol i meant 33 and ill have 35.

    just testing you.

  7. Andrew_DS:
    June 29th, 2009
    Yeah ok Roca, I believe you. Can you link to any proof that you manage to do the impossible and have 43 games out of a possible 40!

    Look out Dave. Oh no. Watch out. Oh damn, too late. Barnabe, Bourne, Ivan and Roca (twice) just shot a load in your face due to that list. Damn! Roca before he even got the page loaded.

    Personally I am astounded that there are 40! I had to go through the list just to make sure you were not pulling a fast one (sorry Roca not having another go at you) and listing some games twice. I will let you off though even though you have included 70%-80% rated games like LBP and Resistance. Suppose you had to pad it out some how.

  8. Roca.:
    June 29th, 2009
    Andrew FYI

    LBP is the highest rated Exclisve game ever.

    and I also believe most of the game on the list are above 80%.

    The firist 9 are all above 90% on IGN

    and if think resistance was bad..i believe it go better reveiw then L4D.

  9. Andrew_DS:
    June 29th, 2009
    WTF, you mean at 85% LBP is the highest rated exclusive for the ps4th! Damn. Unless you’re refering the 99% the laminated totally unbiased playstation mags gave it.

    Bad luck guys. Eventually GT5 will come out which should be a half decent game.

    Perhaps Roca is one of the 5 out of 3 people who can’t do fractions.
  11. Roca.:

    LBP is the highest rated exclusive between 360/PS3

    LBP – 95%
    MGS4 – 94%
    Gears of War – 94%
    Halo 3 -94%

    Source: metacritic

    Andrew DS

    That is pretty Funny that LBP is the highest rated PS3 game. LOL

  13. Arvis:
    June 29th, 2009
    Well, it’s also rated higher than any other 360 game, as far as I know…


  14. Spideydog:
    June 29th, 2009
    LOL, that just made you look silly CAD….. ROFLMAO
  15. Roca.:
    June 29th, 2009
    idk from where Andrew got the 85% from, mayb he just made it up like he usually does
  16. CAD:
    June 29th, 2009
    Not really dude it’s funnier looking at it the other way. That’s like Vivia Piniata being rated higher then Halo 3 & Greas of War 2. So a Puzzle Platformer game is better then MGS4, Uncharted and Killzone on the PS3. ROFLMAO X infinity.
  17. Arvis:
    June 29th, 2009
    Er… wouldn’t that just mean that the Viva Pinata game was really really good? What would be the problem with that? And you still seem to be missing the obvious point that a “Puzzle Platformer” on the PS3 IS better than Halo 3 and Gears of War 2… at least, according to ratings.


  18. Roca.:
    June 29th, 2009
    CAD – “So a Puzzle Platformer game is better then MGS4, Uncharted and Killzone on the PS3. ROFLMAO X infinity”

    LBP is more than just a Puzzle Platformer. Have you Play Contra 1-8 on LBP or Super Sackboy Smash, well u shouldnt know how amazing that game is. but again ur always right and everybody else around the world is wrong.

  19. Spideydog:

    Exactly …. spin, spin, spin CAD. At the end of the day, LBP has a higher rating than any of the best 360 offering’s thus far. You just shot yourself in the foot buddy. Just smile and nod and we will move onto the next discussion point :)

  20. CAD:
    June 29th, 2009
    Well of course I understand what you guys are saying but at the end of the day, LBP comes under the PS3 List and I’m gald that on the 360 side a cheezy game like LBP is not the best thing to play on the 360. I told you Sackboy was your Maskot. LOL!! Looks like the PS3 is for the casual market. Andrew you have been on the wrong side the whole time. LOL

    “I’m glad that on the 360 side a cheezy game like LBP is not the best thing to play on the 360.”

    Ooo, so that’s why Microsoft are making a LBP rival in Kodu is it…?

    And anyway, LBP isn’t the “best thing” to play on PS3 is it? The best thing to play on PS3 is GTA4, exactly like it is on the 360.

  22. Roca.:
    June 29th, 2009
    so what is the best “thing” u can play on the 360?

    Halo 3 – 4 hrs story mode, then all its left is more online shooting (a shooting game like anyother shooter)

    Gears of War – More shooting. the second a letdown compared to the first one. (……..oh yeah more anoter shooter)

    in the shooter category CoD4 is the KING and is out for both console. Killzone 2 is better than Halo 3.

    so thats it.. two shooter are ur best games. when COD4 and KZ2 are also high rated shooters that i can get on the PS3.

    but then there is LPB the Hightest rated exclusive for a reason. it has “endless gameplay possibilities”

    so CAD is sad the the best 360 games bring nothing to the gaming expierence and is on a crowed genre where get similar experience elsewhere. but LPB is on a class of its own

  23. Roca.:
    June 29th, 2009
    And anyway, LBP isn’t the “best thing” to play on PS3 is it? The best thing to play on PS3 is GTA4, exactly like it is on the 360.

    lock_down we are talking about exclusive.

    @Arvis – ‘Er… wouldn’t that just mean that the Viva Pinata game was really really good?’



  25. CAD:
    June 29th, 2009
    I guess the same goes for the PS3, the best games are shooters. All there is is MGS4, Unchartered & Killzone. All Shooters. Lets throw in Resistance and Warhawk. More Shooters. So basically Halo and Gears trumps all of these games and offers more game play and innovation then the whole lot combined. The both together probably sold more copies too. LOL LOL LOL
  26. Arvis:
    June 29th, 2009
    @SW: OMGINORITE!?!? :D

    @CAD: So you’re just basically saying that you’re GLAD that the 360 is missing out on a really amazing game just because… because what? Because you don’t want the 360 to be associated with ANY game that has bright colors? I don’t get where you’re coming from here.


  27. Roca.:
    June 29th, 2009
    Resistance 2 has more innovation than both Halo 3 and GoW

    8-players Co-Op with 3 different classes
    60-player online matches
    New and Better Guns

    CAD stop saying nosense please.

    Roca et al, if you want to see the complete “exclusive” (between PS3 and 360 only) lists for each console’s games rated 75 or higher on metacritic check here:

    I thought the number was surprisingly high in the 360’s favor at first (almost 3 to 1), but then evened up a little after considering other factors.

  29. Roca.:
    June 29th, 2009
    who cares most of those x360 games are from the year ahead release. the PS3 still have better exclisive.
  30. Roca.:
    June 29th, 2009
    you wanna talk about old games. lets bring the PS2 into play. do you want the numbers or what.

    looking at whats coming up. the PS3 is looking way better. with 4 MMOs, a whole bunch of JRPGs, and then there is MAG, UNCHARTED, HEAVY RAIN, AGENT, LAST GARDIAN AND MORE

  31. CarlB:
    June 29th, 2009
    Actually, counting all 2005 and 2006 releases would make 53 out of the 360’s 136… but I did already mention it as one of the factor’s that would even up the comparison.

    “better exclisive” … subjective. Personally I like RPG’s and the 360 seems to win out, for now, though it may change in the future.

    “Grudge Match: 360 v. PS3 Roleplaying Games
    Has Microsoft unseated Sony as king of the RPG?”

    Regardless, either console you own (if not all three, etc.) has plenty of great games to keep anybody happy.

  32. CarlB:
    June 29th, 2009
    Roca, I already mentioned PS2 games in the piece and actually argued in favor of the PS3.

    Release dates are famously tentative, especially with Sony.

  33. CAD:
    June 29th, 2009
    Carl B

    Don’t bother with list. Even though your list is impressive Roca will look at the whole thing and only see 2 games. Halo and Gears. His mind is too small to comprehend the rest.

  34. Barnabe Jones:
    June 29th, 2009

    Roca, please ignore Andy. He doesn’t have any pro-nintendo sites, because only old ladies and toddlers play the Wii.

    Carl, off the top of my head PS3 rpg exclusives…

    Valkaria Chronicles
    Disgaea 3
    Cross Edge
    Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom
    Tales of Vesperia (expanded)

    DC Universe Online
    The Agency
    Free Realms
    trinity universe
    Atelier Rorona

    New idea for a form post: “Has the 360 destroyed Sqaure Enix’s reputation this gen?”.

    The best about review lists is that they’re not even your own opinion, which is really what you should be using ;)

    Now of course you could agree with %100 of review lists %100 of the time I suppose, but I would think you’d be lying.

    On a side note, I’ve been playing Tales of Vesperia lately, its neat. I played the demo and dumped on it, but then gave it another shot and I enjoy it, nice game.

  37. SW:
    June 29th, 2009
    ^^ Oh I should add that this is not aimed at ‘exclusive lists’ which of course are not opinion… My bad for not pointing that out :)
  38. navyste:
    June 29th, 2009
    Lets ignore the fact that your all using one source as “evidence” who has the best exclusive i think you will find its actually mario galaxy. Now u can all hate the wii im not a big fan myself, but if ur going to use metacritc is evidence in your fanboy war u all now have to say the wii is best, because of the evidence u used.
  39. Arvis:
    June 29th, 2009
    I’m still of the opinion that if Nintendo had made Galaxy the exact same as they did, but without ANY ties to Mario whatsoever, it would have averaged in the low 80s with critics. So many glaring issues… all completely ignored. Nostalgia can be dangerous.


  40. SW:
    June 29th, 2009
    What glaring issues? :)
  41. Barnabe Jones:
    June 29th, 2009
    I agree. Galaxy was really good. Not the best game this gen, but still pretty good.

    ” I played the demo and dumped on it, but then gave it another shot and I enjoy it, nice game.”

    -Glad to hear you say that actually. I played the 360 demo also and I was not impressed. Maybe I will give it another chance.
