By now you've hopefully seen our Top 50 Games of 2008 and viewed our Top 10 video feature (if not, why not?), but what about the best games made for each individual format or platform holder? Good question. Luckily we've thought about the answer, and put together the Top 10 PS3 and PSP exclusives of 2008. Before you get the pitchforks out and rustle up an angry mob, this list deliberately disqualifies titles like Fallout 3 and GTA 4 (and any other games that appeared on another console). These are games that a console gamer could only buy for the PS3 or PSP.

10. PixelJunk Monsters!, Sony - PSN

What we said: In the end it all comes down to how you want to play the game. On the one hand you've got a fiendishly hard single-player game that taxes the mind as much as the reflexes, and on the other there's a more considered two-player game with a slower pace and more tactical play. Either way, PixelJunk Monsters is another fine addition to the PSN line-up.

9. Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty, Sony - PSN

What we said: At £10 Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty is well worth a download (or a purchase on Blu-ray in Europe). Compared to some other PSN titles it doesn't offer the same replay value, but it more than makes up for this in production values and overall quality. If thought of as a mini-adventure rather than a full game it ranks up there with the best the series has ever offered and as such is essential to all action loving PS3 owners.

"no way man, where's mirrors edge, where's resistance 2?"
First one not exclusive, latter is on page 2. Read the articale before you post? :P (also, game being too long? you try to finish them in one sitting or something? nothing wrong with having a smackload of content(unless the game is boring, and then the game has bigger issues than it's lenght))

Cute trick on the title, I came here thinking "10 good ps3 exclusives, this i gotta see" and half of them were psp titles. Still, the title did say "playstation" without the three.
Then again, x360 list had lips and 2 multiplatforms, so apparently most of the great games are multiplatforms, which ofc is great for gamers :)

I agree with all the picks, but it's a shame you didn't mention Persona 4.

I would've put Eden instead of Monsters. Monsters is good, but I just prefer Eden so much more. But to each his own, and we all know reviews/top 10 lists/game of the year hullabaloo is all about opinion anyway.

Because they have yet to play VC, and Persona 4 as well, that's why they're not on the list.

What?
Where are Valkyria Chronicles, Naruto UNS or GT 5 Prologue?
They are all better than PJ Monsters or Ratchet QoB.
Especially Valkyria Chronicles, it's one of the most underrated games this year.
