That might have been true last year, but I don't think it can possibly be considered true now. There are tons of good games for the PS3. In fact, I played and enjoyed more good games in the first year of owning the PS3 than I did in the first year of owning the Xbox 360. The first year or so of the PS3's life cycle I played:
Resistance: Fall of Man, Motor Storm, Warhawk, Oblivion, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Skate, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, Heavenly Sword, Virtua Fighter 5, Call of Duty 4, Ratchet & Clank: Future, The Darkness, Folklore, Assassin's Creed, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Unreal Tournament III, Devil May Cry 4.
What did we get to play on the Xbox 360 the first year? Not nearly as much, in my opinion. I played:
Perfect Dark Zero (Resistance was definitely better), Call of Duty 2 (not as good as Call of Duty 4), Project Gotham Racing 3 (pretty good), Oblivion (really good, but also available on PS3 during its first year), Dead or Alive 4, Dead Rising, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, and Gears of War.
So I definitely feel the PS3 had a better line-up the first year than the Xbox 360 did. Does the 360 have more games overall? Yes, of course. But it has been out nearly twice as long. What did people expect, that the PS3 was going to come out and instantly have as many games as the 360?
To be honest, I am actually a little surprised by how many high-quality titles we got for the PS3 in the first year. Neither the Wii nor the Xbox 360 got so many good games in their first year (in my opinion of course). And any objective observer would have to admit that the PS3 has more exclusives coming out in 2008 than the Xbox 360, not to mention all the awesome multi-platform titles that will be available on both consoles.
The PS3 in 2008 has:
Grand Turismo 5
Motor Storm 2
Metal Gear Solid 4
Hot Shots Golf 5
Final Fantasy XIII
The 360 in 2008 has:
Splinter Cell 5: Conviction
Gears of War 2
Command and Conquer 3
Left 4 Dead
Spectral Force 3
Ninja Gaiden 2
There are probably a few more obscure exclusives for both consoles but these are the ones I could dig up. We can also probably expect a few surprise 2008 exclusives to be announced for each console. In any case, it is easy to see that the "PS3 has no games" argument has no basis in fact. This myth is mostly spread by Xbox fanboys who have never touched a PS3 in their life (and those who mistakenly buy into this myth).
Anyway, I appologize for making such a long post on a subject other than that of the original post. And I know that you meant no harm by it. It's just that I still see this myth floating around the net with some frequency and I just felt like pointing out how good the PS3 is actually doing in the games department.
