I would agree that 2012 has been the PS3's weakest year as far as exclusives go. I bought the multiplayer portion of Starhawk, which is good value for $15.00, but its not a game that I see myself playing for very long once Far Cry 3 comes out, and maybe Black Ops 2.
I would even go so far as to say that 2011 wasn't that great either when it comes to exclusives. I'm a huge Resistance fan, but Resistance 3 had the worst multiplayer in the series, it was a major downgrade and a major disappointment. I'm a massive massive Socom fan, but once again it was a major disappointment. Other than Uncharted 3, Killzone 3 has been the only truely descent PS3 exclusive to come out between 2011 and 2012, and I was disappointed with how little content it released with and post release support it received.
I think that most games that have come out in 2011/2012 have really failed to impress me. Black Ops was mediocre, MW3 was terrible, Battlefield three had tons of technical issues and had an extremely short single player campaign, Medal of Honor is garbage, Mass Effect 3 was a great game with one of the worst endings in gaming history, FEAR 3 was mediocre, The Darkness 2 was a 5 hour long game, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier has let the fanbase down, Call of Juarez: The cartel was an absolute failure.....I can go on and on.
Far Cry 3, God of War: Ascension and The Last of Us can't come soon enough. I have hope that the new Tomb Raider will turn out to be good, GTA5 should be good, and lets hope that Ubisoft doesn't screw up Rainbow Six: Patriots.
Honorable mentions: MGS: Ground Zeros, Splinter Cell: Black List and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
