Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg, director of Product Management for Xbox has said that the Xbox 360 is now so popular that third-parties may feel they no longer need to support the PS3. I say, whatever Aaron the Xbox 360 may be selling better, but the PS3 is far from beat.

Greenburg said, "I think what we'll see is, as a result of how 2008 shaped up - the fact that we had our biggest year in history and we're now expanding our lead over the PS3 in a global basis - we went into 2008 with a solid lead over PS3 in North America, but Europe was a much closer race. Now, we're really expanding our lead there. We've become, by far, the lead global platform for third parties. I think you'll see us getting some benefits from that."

I can see the Xbox 360 getting more exclusive titles thanks to its lead over the PS3, but in all honesty, I think that more than popularity, exclusives boil down to how much money you offer. The console war isn’t over no matter how much Microsoft wants it to be.
