    To get sales I don't think MS need to, i'd imagine the millions of 360 CoD and Fifa gamers will buy one for that alone, but for the people on here, they probably do. As has been said, some of the best MS exclusives are on xbla and I can't imagine they'd launch a new console with enough exclusive arcade games to warrant a purchase for myself. So, unless they launch a new console with a new Halo and Gears as well as a few decent arcade games, personally, I will need a new and exclusive full retail IP or two to convince me to get one. Initially anyway.

    This. But if there was another one it would be some Kinect-filled pile of arsewank.
    There's some people here that want a game like that!

    Especially the arsewank.

    You've forgotten some for both platforms (Crackdown, Alan Wake, InFamous, KZ, etc.) and have included a franchise which isn't exclusive.
    I really wish Microsoft would put a bit more effort into Crackdown.

    Its a great concept and both the games they've made so far have been impressive in one way or another, despite lacking that "AAA" feel.

    With a bigger budget and a bit more talent behind it, Crackdown could be a superb franchise IMO.

    I don't really see The Last of Us etc doing much exciting stuff, to be fair.

    Really, I see the next generation as basically a Halo box, for me - and then any nice surprises on the way.

    Unless MS open up Live a bit (HAHAHAHA) it'll be Steamboat for me.

    I am utterly uninterested in Ass Creed-type mega-productions, unless it's Halo.

    So THERE.

    I'm not actually that big a fan of the console exclusives i've played. AT least not the 'biggest' named exclusives. With the exception of Killzone, and the creation tools in LBP, i've played them and moved on quite quickly. They didn't influence which consoles I bought this generation and they wont do next generation either.
    There is definitely something wrong with you if you found Killzone to be the only interesting exclusive you've played.

    Have you played literally any other shooter?
    What I like about Killzone is the cover-based gameplay. It's like Gears, but in FPS form, without the need for a wall-hug button. The artistic concept is very appealing and multiplayer was really fun. It doesn't come close to my two personal favourite FPS, Unreal Tournament and TimeSplitters, but I very much enjoyed it. Especially the first one!

    They have enough cash to make super studios. See 343. Not going to happen for every title, but if they want it they can get it.

    There's bound to be a glut of new franchises at the start of the next lot of consoles anyway. Stuff like Gears, Dead Rising, Assassin's Creed and Uncharted got in early and made a splash this gen. Plenty of pubs will be looking to do that again.
