View Full Version : If Microsoft could steal one franchise from Sony and Nintendo...

08-22-2007, 05:23 AM
...which ones would you want them to take?

For Sony, I gotta go with Disgaea. Although it's not technically an exclusive, none of the games have been released on anything but the Playstation. It's not a well known series, but I have to say in all honesty it's one of my favorites ever. It's a Strategy RPG similar to Final Fantasy Tactics, but it's hands down the best ever made. The characters are some of the most memorable I've ever seen, and the entire game is probably funnier than all the other games I've played combined. There's so much depth to it, you could play for 300 hours and not have beaten everything.

On top of a lengthy main story, there's about 10 different endings in both the original and the sequel. And then there's ultra-difficult bonus stages that you unlock by doing ultra-difficult tasks in the game. There's pretty much no level cap on the characters, since the max level of 9999 is pretty much impossible to get. Even if you do get it, you can just reincarnate your character to start back at level 1 while keeping all your stats, so you can have an insanely powerful character.

Runner-up: God of War

For Nintendo, I'd love to see Zelda on the 360. Most of Nintendo's other franchises have degraded in quality with each subsequent release, but Zelda just keeps getting better. It's pretty much the definitive Action-Adventure game. Everyone knows who Link is. Even though Ganondorf looks different in every game, he still remains the classic bad guy.

The story could use some work, since it's essentially the same damn thing in every game, but it's still one of the best franchises ever.

Runner-up: Super Smash Bros.

I'd pray for God of War 3.

i dont want to see any nintendo game i.e mario/zelda/donkey kong on xbox. it just wouldnt seem right.

from sony i would love to have god of war, sly cooper, and MLB the show.
of course all of those are made by sony so that will never happen but hey i can dream.

08-22-2007, 05:32 AM
From Sony: God of War
From Nintendo: Either Zelda or Mario

08-22-2007, 05:36 AM
From sony: Killzone 2
from nintendo: Mario!

08-22-2007, 08:23 AM
nintendo: super smash brothers... i want to play that on live. annoying 12 year olds screaming into the headset would go to a whole new level.
sony: just like everyone else... god of war

Although I agree with you, I would love to see Mario or Zelda on a 360. Although it may not seem right, it would just seem cool to have those epic characters on the 360.

As for Sony, I wouldn't care since GTA is coming to the 360, so my wish has come true. :p

08-22-2007, 09:55 AM
Although it's not made by Sony nor Nintendo, I'd love to see some Final Fantasies on our beloved 360's. It is an exclusive to them after all.

Nintendo started off with the franchise, then when they couldn't handle the size of Final Fantasy VII on their Nintendo 64 cartridges, Squaresoft went over to Sony. Now they make Final Fantasy games for both companies, but not for poor Microsoft, which makes me sad... :(

If I can't have at least ONE Final Fantasy on my 360, then I want a Metal Gear Solid game. Preferably MGS4, since it's the only one in the series I've not played yet.

Very easy choices for me....

God of War and Mario Kart ... Red Turtle Shells FTW

08-22-2007, 11:07 AM
I also would deffinitly have to say God of War from sony.

From nintendo, hmmm I would have to say metroid.

08-22-2007, 11:10 AM
Sony: Final Fantasy, God of War, Ratchet and Clank, MGS...any of those.

Nintendo: Nothing...leave all those first party titles on my Nintendo consoles.

Comon ST
08-22-2007, 12:05 PM
From Sony: Socom and Ratchet and Clank.
From Nintendo: Zelda, Mario, Mario Kart.

Give me these and Ill never need another system. Unless they make a super system that can play every single console game around...

08-22-2007, 12:20 PM
Tekken... most definitely Tekken, with a side of mario kart for the arcade

08-22-2007, 12:28 PM
To just throw it in Sony's Face...God Of War...

And from Nintendo...man that's a tougy...either mario kart or zelda...

From Sony: God of War or Ratchet and Clank.

From Nintendo: Super Smash Brothers or Mario Kart.

08-22-2007, 01:28 PM
I think Sony has the licence for Formula 1, so I 'd like an F1 game on the 360.

Zelda would be cool from Nintendo

Hitman Mittz
08-22-2007, 02:02 PM
I've gotta say God of war, Killzone, Tekken,
From Nintendo, i'd say Zelda, Warioware inc... on live would be ace

08-22-2007, 02:48 PM
god of war its like the only good same sony has going for them

08-22-2007, 02:54 PM
Playstation 3:
Medal Gear Solid
God of War
*In that order

Mario Franchise

Im a Manatee
08-22-2007, 03:23 PM
For me, this is like getting peanut butter in my chocolate. IT DOESN'T WORK!!! 'cept MGS

08-22-2007, 03:25 PM
From Sony: Nothing cause no games are good.
From Nintendo: Golden Eye 007

08-22-2007, 03:41 PM
Im going to have to go with a pokemon title from nintendo.... what, you guys dont like pokemon?

I dont really care much for anything from sony, especially cause i here FFXIII is going to be multiplatform.

08-22-2007, 03:41 PM
Time Crisis 4 is coming out for the PS3.... I really, really want that game!!

And it comes with a gun!!

08-22-2007, 03:45 PM
One from each?

From Sony, Metal Gear Solid. It would do wonders on the 360 and people would actually buy it.

From Nintendo...... =| ...... I don't know. Donkey Kong I guess. High definition, barrel throwing monkeys are always a good thing.

08-22-2007, 04:04 PM
Sony: Metal Gear Solid, or God of War

Nintendo: Zelda, Super Smash Bros.

Speaking of Super Smash Bros., I wish they would turn it into a multiplatform game where characters from each platform may fight with (or against) each other for supremacy.

I dream of Link vs. Master Chief vs. Cloud vs. Sonic all the time.

08-22-2007, 04:21 PM
From Nintendo, definitely Zelda

As from Sony, they have no exclusive series of note do they?

08-22-2007, 04:28 PM
I would love to have some classic Zelda and Super Mario on the Arcade that would be awesome! :D

08-22-2007, 04:35 PM
From Sony: Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy. If sony loses those two as exclusives they might as well pack up shop. Those are the ONLY two franchises left on Sony that I had been considering getting a PS3 for. But since we already got Assassin's Creed and Grand Theft Auto, those last two are not a good enough reason to invest in another console.

From Nintendo: None, keep that kiddie stuff away. They can have it.

08-22-2007, 04:46 PM
I dont know from sony, nothing really sticks out in my mind but som Zelda and Mario Bros from Nintendo would be cool as hell.

08-22-2007, 05:42 PM
Nintendo - The console exclusive Resident Evil's.
Sony - Motorstorm

08-22-2007, 05:51 PM
Nintendo - The console exclusive Resident Evil's.

Agreed and the god of war series.

The easy part of this is asking, why would we buy one of these systems? "Man i'd buy PS2 just for GTA" was said a few times when xbox didn't have the rights on GTA.

08-22-2007, 05:54 PM
Having Nintendo games on the 360 just wouldn't be right, although I'll admitt a Zelda game on the 360 would be cool.

And I haven't been anywhere near Sony since the PS2 about 2 years ago, but I'd like the new MGS game, its a PS3 exclusive I think

08-22-2007, 07:15 PM
Sony - FF series *sigh* Not that I think they are the be all, end all, I actually think Bluntman's Disgaea's pick is great call except there are only 2 of those games so what would we get? ONE game? God of War = good, but still overrated. It's nothing unique, just grab stuff from a bunch of other games and you have a polished action title. Whatever, Sony can keep it. MGS would be nice if they keep making it more and more like Splinter Cell ;)

Nintendo - immediately I jump and say ZELDA! But then reading through other people's responses I think I have to agree with Exane. Pokemon over live would be awesome! You know, thinking about it I'm surprised that Wreckon isn't a huge pokemon fan because that's basically what the golems in EM are. I actually called them my pokemon the entire time I was playing that game (all three times).

08-22-2007, 07:27 PM
Sony - FF series *sigh* Not that I think they are the be all, end all...

I was under the impression that FF was already on 360, if by FF you mean the Final Fantasy games.

08-22-2007, 07:28 PM
Kaens i was kinda joking about the Pokemon, though now that u mentioned XBL it could actually be fun. Heres to Pokemon on the 360 :drunk I guess your not a racist :biglaugh

08-22-2007, 07:29 PM
I was under the impression that FF was already on 360, if by FF you mean the Final Fantasy games.Yes I mean the Final Fantasy games. What we have is the FF MMO and you are able to hook into it and play through your 360. It's hardly a proper FF title, like FF XII. Actually I just want any good Japanese RPGs and more RPGs all around for the 360. SquareEnix makes like 15-20 at least for each PS generation and I wish we'd get some of that love on the 360.

Kaens i was kinda joking about the Pokemon, though now that u mentioned live it could actually be fun. Heres to Pokemon on the 360 :drunk I guess your not a racist :biglaugh
Hell I'm not joking, I love Pokemon! And Nintendo has been disrespecting the franchise that single handedly kept them alive during the N64 & Gamecube days. They haven't evolved that into anything people want and there has never been anything other than stadium area battles on the consoles. Although Pokemon Snap was fun, I have to admit.

08-22-2007, 07:41 PM
Pokemon snap FTW!! u no everyone here has played that game :D It would be cool to go find them in say single player and then bring them into an online arena (just like as you said, Enchanted Arms). Hell maybe you can go hunt them down with your friends to. Its really not a bad idea and im not even a big fan (minus big *shooosh*)

08-22-2007, 07:44 PM
I thought that FF as a series was heading toward the MMO RPG away from it's single player RPG tradition. The new game Eternal Sonata looks like something you would like if you wanted Japanese RPGs.

I would have liked the Ninja Gaiden game to be on the 360, we do have DoA4 afterall.

08-23-2007, 12:33 AM
I dream of Link vs. Master Chief vs. Cloud vs. Sonic all the time.

Do you wake up screaming? I would if that happened. It just makes no sense xD!

08-23-2007, 01:45 AM
I would definately want Super Smash Bros for the 360 that would be so sweet live

08-23-2007, 02:06 AM
Stealing from Sony: Gran Turismo and Final Fantasy.

Stealing from Nintendo: There Arcade game lineup.

Unlocking Achievements in classic Mario or Donkey Kong...strangely Sweet!:woop:

Anti HERO 574
08-23-2007, 02:09 AM
from sony I woul dhave to say...god of war
from nintendo would have to be super smash brothers

08-23-2007, 03:06 AM
I think God of War would be a biggest steal. And second, Zelda.

08-23-2007, 04:33 AM
Sony - FF series *sigh* Not that I think they are the be all, end all, I actually think Bluntman's Disgaea's pick is great call except there are only 2 of those games so what would we get? ONE game?

I'm talkin about if Nippon Ichi makes a sequel. If they brought it to the 360 with next-gen graphics and Xbox Live versus battles against other "Overlords", I doubt I'd ever buy another game. :p

I've been playing through Disgaea 2 while my Xbox is away, and frankly I've forgotten it's gone. The story and characters aren't quite as good as the first, but everything else is much better. I love that damn game so much, I may even buy the animated series DVDs, and I hate anime.

I gotta come clean. I too was once a huge Pokémon fan. My brother brought a VHS he recorded of it on one of his visits home from Japan before it hit the states, and I fell in love, despite the fact I can't speak a lick of Japanese. One of my fondest gaming memories is when I was one of the lucky few to win a legit Mew from Toys 'R Us when they ran a lottery for it. Some guy dressed in a Team Rocket outfit transferred it to my copy of Pokémon Blue when I turned in my winning ticket. My friends (we were like, 12 or 13) just couldn't compete with my Mew/Mewtwo tagteam combo from Hell. :p

God damn I feel like such a nerd. :(

08-23-2007, 12:17 PM
I would love to see any mario game on the 360 and the Kingdom Hearts series. It is the only game on PS2 I miss.

08-23-2007, 04:43 PM
Zelda and Metal Gear Solid.

08-23-2007, 06:18 PM
i would love to see zelda on 360 it would look so cool and sony:god of war {well if metal gear is coming to the 360 that is} but if not i would love to play metal gear on 360

08-23-2007, 07:01 PM
I'd have to say Metroid from Nintendo and nothing I can think of from Sony Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest

deej brutal
08-23-2007, 07:26 PM
from sony it would be god of war/tekken/ final fantasy

from nintendo it would be way too many for me haha but if i had to narrow it down it would be super smash bros and mario kart

08-23-2007, 10:49 PM
I'd love to see sony's Twisted Metal series on the 360. They havent touched it in years, and it doesn't seem to be getting any PS3 action.

08-23-2007, 11:33 PM
Sony: Socom Series
Nintendo: Mario

08-24-2007, 12:08 AM
Sony: I'm surprised that not that many people have put Metal Gear on their lists as this has been one of the most anticipated games for PS3. Also Final Fantasy is another main stream title that I would like to see "made" not "ported" for the 360. God of War is probably the game on everyones minds right now because its basically the only game of the 3 that is in current circulation. But to me Metal Gear and FF are the only reasons I will probably be buying a PS3 this Christmas.

Nintendo: Okay for this system I gotta admit it would be "WILD" if they had a Pokemon game for the 360 or even XBLA. But Smash Bros and Zelda are franchises I believe most people including me would LOVE to see on 360. Zelda just cause its ZELDA lol... and Smash Bros cause it would be a great game for XBL. Oh and just for the hell of it I gotta add in Wii Sports but it would be weird to have it without the wireless wiimotes.

PC: Okay well I know it wasn't asked but I believe there are some PC games that I would love to see for the 360 (after that keyboard addition to the controller comes out). Leisure Suit Larry series would be a hilarious addition to XBLA. Trying to think of more ideas but the only one I can think of off the top of my head would be WoW [I don't play it nemore but I would love to see that community filled up with even more 6 year olds lol].

08-25-2007, 10:39 AM
From Sony- Tekken!!
From Nintendo- Smash Bros!!

Predator x360a
08-25-2007, 11:42 AM
Metal Gear. If they had that the world would be great. I mean come on Snake on the 360. Just think about it.

08-25-2007, 07:07 PM
God of War

not really nintendo but NiGHTS

08-25-2007, 07:21 PM
No one flame me... but I'd love to play Killzone 2 on my 360... >_>

08-25-2007, 09:22 PM
sony: Fall of man / killzone / god of war / warhawk / MSG 4
nintendo: none

08-28-2007, 09:52 AM

08-28-2007, 04:31 PM
Resident Evil 5 is coming to 360 for whoever wanted it, its set in a african town..

08-28-2007, 07:12 PM
Metal gear solid for sony. And theres nothing I want from nintendo, never liked nintendos much.

08-28-2007, 10:22 PM
Sony Exclusives - MGS and the next game from the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus team. The Shin Megami games would be cool too.
Nintendo - Zelda & Mario in HD of course. An Ossu! Tatakae! Ouendan! XBLA game would be cool although I can't figure out how that'd work.

08-29-2007, 03:26 AM
Zelda and Final Fantasy.

08-29-2007, 05:38 PM
I personally would love to see Sony's Metal Gear Solid series on 360 along with Nintendo's Metroid Prime.

08-29-2007, 05:59 PM
Sony: MGS and Killzone
Nintendo: Zelda and Mario

BUt with all the games comming out in the next few months (Mass Effect, Two Worlds, Halo 3, Assasins Creed) I dont think I'd have any time to go to work, let alone if the other platform exclusives would come to the BoX.

08-31-2007, 11:38 AM
Sony - Tekken, god how i miss this game!
Nintendo - Gotta be mario kart :)

08-31-2007, 11:49 AM
There are so many great nintendo games i reckon a better idea than to steal a franchise would be to port achievment points over to the wii. May seem like a crazy idea but i'd go for it. As for sony, im not convinced the xbox needs any of there stuff. Although if I had to give an answer god of war.

08-31-2007, 02:16 PM
I would be all over god of war on 360, I really loved it on PS2.

And i'd take donkey cong from nintendo. Donkey Konga anyone?

08-31-2007, 04:07 PM
Warhawk looks pretty good..though it could have made a single player campaign and it'd be even better probably..granted we have Shadowrun doing the same thing..
LovelyWendie99 (http://www.lovelywendie99.com/)

09-01-2007, 07:33 AM
god of war from sony
but i would LOVE to see super smash bros from Nintendo

09-01-2007, 02:11 PM
Metal gear solid from sony
Metroid prime from nintendo

09-01-2007, 09:11 PM
I'd love to see Final Fantasy (other than FFXI) and MLB: The Show on the 360.

09-02-2007, 04:15 AM
To steal a game from sony...Metal Gear Solid 4, just because we all know how sony is proud to have that one :p God of War 3...we have Heavenly sword et DMC4 but still...GodOW is a must.

Still I would love to see Microsoft buy sony :p

To steal a game from Nintendo...well Zelda would be funny.

09-02-2007, 07:18 AM
from sony, heavenly blade mgs4 some final fantasy XIII and time crisis and grand tourismo and lair

from nintendo, super smash bros classic zelda and mario on xbla metriod prime and no more heroes

09-18-2007, 01:47 AM
All I care about is God of War 3. I love the series, and there's no way in hell I'm buying a PS3 just to play one stinkin game

09-18-2007, 02:08 AM
Nintendo - Metroid
Sony - Metal Gear Solid

09-18-2007, 02:27 AM
Sony : Killzone

Nintendo : Super Smash Brothers

09-18-2007, 02:39 AM
sony - metal gear solid 4:uzi:
nintendo - nothing really:(

09-19-2007, 12:16 AM
If Microsoft could steal a franchise, I'd want them to take Metroid. Though Metroid Prime 3 looks pretty sweet on the Wii, imagine what it'd look like with the 360's horsepower...

09-19-2007, 06:16 AM
From Sony I'd want Kingdom Hearts, Ratchet, and Resistance (FPS's are so much better with a 360 controller)

From Nintendo the trinity, Mario, Zelda, and Metroid. Although if MS could steal the motion control and Wii Sports, I'd be okay with that too.

09-19-2007, 04:05 PM
Gotta go with most people on this with God of War it is probably the best game sony put out. Love or hate playstation you need to play this game because if you are a true gamer you will respect it.

As for Nintendo i will go with Fire Emblem because that is my favorite Nintendo franchise.

09-20-2007, 12:38 AM
From Sony hands down theres only one game it can be. Final Fantasy. Prob get a PS3 just to play final fantasy and white knight story but god i would love to have it on the 360. Could even happen if sonys numbers don't pick up :P

From Nintendo. Hmm gotta go with Zelda.

Turbo VDuB 44
09-20-2007, 01:48 AM
tough choices but the top 2 of each would be:

SONY: SOCOM series and God of War
NINTENDO: Mario Kart and Zelda

J eVeRy DaY 514
09-21-2007, 01:57 AM
From Sony: Kingdom Hearts & God of War
From Nintendo: Zelda & [wouldn't Mario Party & Super Smash be so fun over live?!]

09-21-2007, 02:04 AM
From Sony: Hmm... Really don't know... Jak and Daxter and Killzone 2 I guess. There's nothing I like from Sony, really=/
From Nintendo: Super Smash Bros. and Metroid
