Agreed. It's not just about games, but also about which platforms your friends play on as well. My dad works with a groups of people who played CoD on PS3 and so for a while he was considering getting one because of that. It had nothing to do with whether or not the hardware was better, just that the people who knew played it on that one.
I also know a number of people who have purchased PS3 just for the exclusives. My brother bought a PS3 and wants a PS4 because of Final Fantasy. He couldn't otherwise care less about what hardware is in the consoles.
We can even go a step further and I made my purchase of a Wii solely for the exclusives on that console too. The Wii was clearly the loser in last gen's hardware, outperformed vastly by the 360 and PS3, but it had some good titles that I wanted. I'd happily bear through the lack of higher quality graphics to play Metroid Prime 3 and Skyward Sword. Nintendo is a prime example of how games sell the consoles.

If you look at history, the weaker console often ends up being the winner for that gen. All the way back to the beginning, this is true. The Intellivision was more powerful than the Atari 2600. The TurboGraphix 16 and the NeoGeo were more powerful than anything they competed with, both failed though. The Dreamcast, Gamecube, and Xbox were all more powerful than the PS2. The Wii was significantly weaker than the 360 or PS3. Seems like hardware prowess actually has very little to do with overall sales.
