Best PlayStation Exclusives as per the Sales and Metacritic

Sony has undeniably curated the most diverse and extensive collection of exclusive video games on any console. Since the PS4’s launch, Sony has remained dedicated to crafting top-tier single-player AAA games, a commitment evident in this ultimate list of PlayStation exclusives. Whether you’re a long-time fan or a newcomer, there’s a plethora of exclusive titles to enjoy on what has become the go-to platform for exclusive gaming experiences.

What Qualifies as a PlayStation Exclusive?

At the time of this writing, all the games listed here are exclusive to PlayStation consoles. This means they’re not available on Sony’s direct competitors, the Xbox Series S/X and Nintendo Switch. While games like God of War and Horizon have found their way to PC, they are still included in this list, acknowledging the grey area in the console wars. Both first and third-party exclusives are featured, offering a diverse gaming experience.

How the Ultimate PlayStation Exclusives Are Ranked

This ranking system relies on metrics such as Metacritic scores and sales figures to objectively assess the best exclusives PlayStation has to offer. Only games with 1 million or more copies sold are included. To balance the discrepancy between critical acclaim and sales numbers, an additional half-point is added per million sales to the Metacritic score.

These rankings do not necessarily reflect personal preferences but rather represent an amalgamation of critical and commercial success.
