PS3 vs 360: Charting The Exclusive Content [UPDATED]

As platform-specific content becomes the new form of exclusives, it's becoming harder and harder to keep track of.

Who's getting the "BioShock" challenge rooms? If I want to play as Darth Vader, which version of "Soul Calibur IV" do I need? Are they going to charge me for that "God of War" theme for "Guitar Hero III"?

Exclusive DLC is a popular weapon in today's console war. Sony worldwide studios head Shuhei Yoshida told Eurogamer at this year's Tokyo Game Show that publishers are all moving to multi-platform publishing, and as a result expects to "see more announcements about exclusive downloadable content." Microsoft paid millions to secure "Grand Theft Auto IV"'s additional content. This trend isn't going away.

MTV Multiplayer is here to help. We've created a chart which organizes all of the relevant exclusive content that's popped over the past year or so. If we're missing anything, please let us know. We'll add it.

This chart does not include Wii because we don't consider motion controls exclusive content. If companies start including Wii-specific content on multi-platform games, however, we'll expand the chart's scope.
