I was wondering how the software libraries for PS3 and 360 compared in this early part of 2007 (from now - Mar 31) so I decided to compile a list and share it. These are based on US Release Dates. I wanted to know a few things as well, like which were exclusive, which were already out on other systems, and which were coming to what system first. So I color coded the list as follows: Bold - Console exclusive titles Italic - Cross Platform Bold Grey - Exclusive XBLA / PSN Navy - Coming out first to this system Green - Releasing near simultaneously Maroon - Already out for another system Orange - Already out for competing system but is including some exclusive content. * - XBLA / PSN downloadable title Note: This is specifically a console comparison, so a game will be listed as exlusive even if it also comes out on PC; although I did try to Underline such titles.

VF5 is the highlight for me, and MotorStorm looks like the highlight of the exclusives. I also noticed that when a game is cross platform and releasing on 360 first, the PS3 version seems to have a release date of 3-6 months afterwards. Yikes. I think a couple of those PS3 exclusives might be "arcade" titles rather then retail (fl0w and Go!?) but I'm not sure... All in all I hope Q2 (or even Q3) is a lot better for PS3 owners then Q1 looks to be... I'll try to do one of these next quarter as well, but I don't want to do it now since dates are more likely to change.
