21 studios making PlayStation exclusive content

Microsoft is often viewed as the platform holder willing to splash the cash to tie up Xbox exclusive content, from early DLC for the likes of Call of Duty to exclusive game modes for FIFA and full games like Titanfall, but Sony too appears to be aggressively chasing PlayStation-only content.

During a stage presentation at the GameStop Expo in Las Vegas last weekend, Sean Coleman, Sony Computer Entertainment America’s group manager of retail training and advocacy, said the company has partnered with over 21 third-party developers to secure a range of “exclusive game content” for PlayStation platforms, some of which we already know about, like PlayStation-only Assassin’s Creed 4 and Watch Dogs missions.

Notable partners revealed at the GameStop event included Rockstar, Bungie, Activision, Ubisoft, Bethesda, Konami, Square Enix and Sega. And that doesn't include a massive list of exclusives coming to PS4 and Vita from indie developers. “We’ve forged great third-party partnerships with some of the biggest developers to bring exclusive game content to PlayStation gamers which creates the best place to play,” Coleman said. On the subject of PS4, he also claimed: “If you compare PlayStation 4 visuals side by side with any other gaming console, PlayStation 4 will look better every time.”

Here’s the list of companies working on PlayStation exclusive content, courtesy of NeoGAF and Gematsu:

  • Activision Blizzard – Diablo III content

    Eh, if it's mainly just exclusive DLC and stuff, I don't really think this a a big deal anyway. And it's rather pathetic that both Sony and Microsoft DO seem to think that such stuff is a game changer.

    Atlus always had a better relationship with Sony then Microsoft. Heck Atlus likes Nintendo more then Microsoft. Only game I saw recently on the 360 was persona 4 arena. Could be wrong on if the put out a new game on it.

    Half of these names are second party, not third. And all this content will not make a difference.

    You mean bonus for games that both platforms have correct, because I have never viewed Microsoft as a company with more exclusive content.

    Now I want to know what Atlus will give Sony...... My console decision will weigh heavily on Atlus and Natsume

    Same here, I was planning to stick with just my PC for a while, but if there's a launch window Persona game the money will leave my wallet somehow.
