The ever-growing list of lost PS3 exclusives has been one of the most-discussed issues casting a cloud over Sony's current generation offering. Many firmly believe that the PlayStation 3 is doomed for failure, and they point to the list of lost exclusives as the tell-tale sign. In an attempt to catalogue these apparent "travesties," Game|Life has put together a running timeline of Sony's lost exclusives ranging from Grand Theft Auto IV to Fatal Inertia. 

The article goes on to speculate that Sony's only two remaining third-party exclusives, Metal Gear Solid 4 and Final Fantasy XIII, are both on shaky ground. Drawing images of Peter Moore with a Final Fantasy tattoo on his chest, and citing weakly credible rumors as the near-confirmation of a seemingly unlikely 360-bound MGS4, Game|Life postulates that this year's E3 may hold the ultimate answers for the many unanswered questions.

While the common thread throughout the forums and blogs that I frequent happens to be one of negativity towards Sony, I'm not so quick to count the PS3 out of the race. All of the aforementioned titles, with the exception of Devil May Cry IV, are titles that were inevitably going to become multiplatform anyway. And while Ben seems to be fairly confident that MGS4 will be heading to the 360, I'm not so sure. Perhaps eventually, as was the case with Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, but not in a timely manner. As for Final Fantasy XIII, without the 360 having much of a footing in Japan, I can't see the first "next-gen" Final Fantasy game on any system other than Sony's black box.

E3 will hopefully serve to put Sony in a better light. With a big holiday roster of quality titles like Lair, other upcoming gems like Folklore and LittleBigPlanet on the horizon, and the ever-evolving "Home" platform, I'm confident that Sony is slowly beginning to come around from the rather rough launch, and I for one am anxious to see—and report on—the company's E3 showing.
