Also based on ps4 launch info .. Quite a good term for Sony .. With free ps plus itd be A++ but Sony would prolly go broke lol

@joe

Based on launch info? You better hope you're wrong or this article is incredibly biased.

Gimmemorebubblez1099d ago

@george

What..... the fact that the PS4 is more powerful and cheaper than its main competitor? It's not biased what has MS released this year......Gears of War Judgement meanwhile Sony has release Ni No Kuni, GoW:A, The Last of Us....not to mention Rain, Puppeteer, GT6, Ratchet and Clank: IttN and Beyond: Two Souls are coming and last time I checked Sony didn't try to f#ck over their consumers.

@George - ms has released 0 aaa games this year so far ... Not one purchase by me , and xbone has been one b.s. PR campaign from day one ... Come back to me when ms actually does something good on their own not forced by consumers

I'm sorry but, who gives a shit about these ratings?
They're purely based on opinions instead on facts.
True, the Xbox One sucks, nobody knows if they will re-patch the DRM because they can do so at any time.
Which I'm 88% sure they will, otherwise, they wouldn't force you to download a Day One Patch, it would be in the console itself.

Seriously, do you think they've made That many console from the time they announced the console from the time they changed their minds about DRM?

Said as an excuse:"Oh, you'd have to download a Patch, because of time constraint between now and when the console launches."
Bull Sh**, Sony will be able to produce at least 1 million units/month. The first time Microsoft launched the 360, they launched with 250 000 units. (All of them are dead broken from RRODs, another article confirmed that) Don't give me that BS that you can't have the Xbox One without that day one patch, it's just a gimmick to return people to DRM later in the console's life cycle.

Same thing with Forza Motorsport 5, you have to download a Day One Patch as well. Sorry, but, every other third party games don't forces you to download a patch, so what's the deal with this?

"Unfortunately, at the end of the day, despite all of these new titles, Nintendo will still be running this race using outdated technology. The Wii U may be on par with the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in terms of graphical prowess, but once the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 hit, it could be the Wii all over again, where any multiplatform games that appear on the Nintendo system are gimped ports of the versions appearing on Sony and Microsoft’s more powerful consoles."

But yet you guys scored it higher than Microsoft? Get out of here! ;)

HammadTheBeast1099d ago

But the Wii U gets the by of being a newer console, despite the 360 being well established it's had no major games other than GeOW Judgement.

Not to mention the PR hassle.

ufo8mycat1099d ago

It's not about graphics though, its about quality gameplay, quality games.

Sadly this isn't on Nintendos side either.

ChickenOfTheCaveMan1098d ago

I agree, Nintendo got a free pass on this one because of its 3DS. They're sleeping at the wheel home console wise and for that they deserved at least a C.

mochachino1099d ago (Edited 1099d ago )

If Wii U isn't getting current-gen multiplats now, it's less likely to next-gen multiplats in the future.

Like most Nintendo systems, it going to need to get by on Nintendo exclusives alone. Which is probably why it's not selling well currently. Nintendo hasn't released a single heavy hitter.

In regards 360s grade, as a 360 owner all I can say is I'm very unsatisfied with my 360 and have been for a while. Ever since Kinect was released come to think of it.

medman1099d ago

I'm astonished. Mochachino is the rare N4g poster who makes well thought out and cogent points. The rest of you should pay attention.

UltimateMaster1098d ago

So far, only EA isn't making games for the Wii U, ubisoft and Activision and Japan companies are still supporting the system.

Besides the Yearly Need for Speed and Battlefield, what are we really missing?

Nobody likes EA, the were rated the worst company in the world. It's almost a blessing that the Wii U won't have their games...

Concertoine1099d ago

No one smart is buying a wii u to play a half assed version of ps4 games.

T21099d ago

Pretty much agree with grades . My 360 is a paperweight now its made me quite angry actually ..
I give Sony a B for December though because plus was already getting pretty solid by then ...

Concertoine1098d ago

I havent bought a new 360 game since 2011. Been playing all the little forgotten gems that dont cost a penny though, decent life support for an abandoned console.

ChickenOfTheCaveMan1098d ago

360 got old, going DVD shortened its life and it was released a year before the PS3/Wii.

They stretched it to be on par with PS4 and not make the mistake of Wii U of being under specs'ed.
