PSNStores Top 25 PSN Exclusives

Posted by on June 21st, 2011 | 23 Comments | Tags: ,

20. Fat Princess

Big Girls really are more fun! Fat Princess is an adorably violent slice of team based multiplayer, with a variety of classes ensuring that no matter what your play style, there’s always room on the team for somebody looking to fulfill their inner lumberjack. Fat Princess’ expansions are also nothing to turn your nose up at, as they add some great mechanics on top of an already solid game. Transforming into a giant and flattening opponents with all the flair of an especially violent Saturday morning cartoon never gets old.


19. Beat Sketcher

Brought home my shiny new PS Move controller and this was the first title I tried out… and the one that got the most playtime of any of my Move games. Who would have thought drawing on a TV screen was so much fun? It has incredibly sharp controls and a soundtrack that demands at least a tap of the foot. Beware the firetruck level though…


18. Mushroom Wars

Real Time Strategy is a genre that most think has no place on a console. Well I give you Mushroom Wars, a game all about owning territories. You don’t need huge APMs to be a master at this, which makes it suitable for a console experience. Send your cute little warriors across the map in wave after wave to overwhelm your opponent. With the addition of an online mode and the always present YouTube replays (watch these to get the good strats)… Mushroom Wars will have you laying the smack down on your friends wherever they are located.

17. PixelJunk Shooter

Fluids, fluids everywhere. That is one way to describe Q-Games PixelJunk Shooter. You are a craft sent to a mining colony where it is your task to rescue survivors, while making your way through all sorts of environments. Be it ice caverns, lava pits, or even industrial sites, Shooter’s ingenious fluid play is what makes it have a spot on this list. Pro-tip for using the lava suit, make sure to hit your friends with it as much as possible in co-op mode.


16. PixelJunk Eden

An eye-candy filled adventure as the player tends to their garden. This is a must play as a coop title, and hopefully with a surround sound system on a giant TV. The chill atmosphere and simple mechanics make this an enjoyable trip for all.

    Lol, I own 19 games from IGN’s list and 19 games from PSNStores list. Don’t know which one is better (though I have to say a game is not “better” than another if it is exclusive).

    • Eric G

      True, it’s not necessarily better if it’s exclusive. We just wanted to highlight some of the reasons why we love the PlayStation Network especially. All platforms have their gems; we just think the PSN’s collection is extra shiny!

    • HJB

      Being exclusive doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better, but exclusives tend to be of superior quality, so if you’re saying a game can’t be better if it’s exclusive then I strongly disagree with you.

    Wait, what, Critter Crunch over Flower? Is button mashing more important to the author than art and atmosphere?

  • shagg187

    Critter Crunch is not button mashing. Nevertheless, great list!

  • Explodemon isn’t exclusive for PSN… However it’s a great list, but I never found Pixeljunk Monster to be that fun; and where is Trine!? That game should easily take 1st place according to me, although it has been released on PC, but not any other console.

    • Eric G

      What else is Explodemon! on? I’m not aware of any other platform.

    • boingball

      Hey, Pixeljunk Monster is great! The PSP version is the version to get though.

  • Mechdevil

    Why isn’t Wipeout HD first??? It’s too amazing to be sitting at 5, it should at least be in the top 3

  • brewer

    Pretty good list with a lot of my favorites up there (SSHD, Wipeout HD, Critter Crunch, Flower and Shatter).

    Kind of disappointed that Siren Blood Curse didn’t make the cut, its on of the best horror game I played this gen, good crazy story that scarred the shit out of me multiple times while playing. I think Sony really messed up not promoting that game more.

  • George

    Great list. I have 17 of the 25. Now I wonder what the list would be if it were not limited to PlayStation exclusives.

    • Eric G

      INC MULTIPLATFORM LIST. Lol, we actually conjured up a multiplatform list that will be released in the near future. Thanks for checking it out!

    • boingball

      Looking forward to that list:-)

  • Chris Cobb

    Wow I’m surprised I agree with this list even less than the IGN one. Though this one does include more PixelJunk, which I approve of.

    I still can’t believe that both lists are lacking Clash of Heroes. Absolutely criminal.

  • Chris Cobb

    I know this list is supposed to be PSN exclusive, but there are a least a few exceptions. CoH should be one of them.

    • We have that on our Multiplatform list don’t worry 🙂

    • Eric G

      “So after writing down every PSN exclusive (I consider games not on Xbox 360 as exclusive)”
      CoH is Capy’s first XBLA game. No other game on this list is on XBLA. Thanks for stopping by, though.

  • doa766

    Siren is better than every game on that list

    • Sadly I don’t think anyone here is a huge survival horror fan. So none of us have played it. I hear good things though

  • 413x

    Hmm where is StarDrone!

  • Great job.

  • Wow I haven’t actually played most of the titles on the list. HOARD is on PC, too. But sadly without the local multiplayer.

  • Buttelli

    Shatter in sixth? ARE YOU F#CKING KIDDIN ME?!
