Best of 2013: System of the year

GamesBeat's Mike Minotti: Originally, I was ready to crown GamesBeat’s best system of the year all by myself. Then my boss politely reminded me that we should probably do a staff vote for that sort of thing. So vote we did, choosing our favorite game-playing device from an extensive list. Hell, we even considered the Ouya! I mean, no one actually voted for it, but we considered it. (3DS, Nintendo, PC, PS3, Sony)

"2013 saw the launch of PlayStation 3′s successor, but the old, curvey console proved supreme. The PS3 started the year off with the release of the colorful and epic Japanese role-playing game Ni no Kuni in January, and it just marched through 2013 with a steady stream of quality exclusives, including developer Naughty Dog’s survival-action game The Last of Us and the racing simulator Gran Turismo 6. Other notable exclusives included the 2D platformer Puppeteer, the bloody, action-filled God of War: Ascension, and the baseball simulator MLB 13 The Show."

I agree. Still haven't gotten all of these, but I plan too. After I finish NNK. PS3 has had a very strong year.

Why is PS3 the best console of the year? Because of the GAMES, not the media streaming or other throw-ins.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   433d ago
PS3 was unbelievable this year, so many great exclusives.
JodyCones  +   433d ago
And I've always been a PlayStation/PC/Nintendo gamer. Ni no kuni was incredible. You get the best games!
NeoTribe  +   432d ago
Ni no kuni was damn good. I actually platniumed it. Its wierd because i dislikex the characters and paid no attention to the story because i feel ive been there seen that but the gameplay was like crack.
TomShoe  +   433d ago

PS3 not only had an amazing year of exclusive games this year, but they did that while launching a new console. Congrats to Sony. Playstation has been my console of choice since the original( even though I had to flip it upside down to play games )

Honestly this was year of 3DS hands down.
dcj0524  +   433d ago
This was a good year for each platform in this order 1.PS3
5.XBOX 360
6.Wii U

PS3,3DS &PSVITA are the real stars. This was the best year in terms of content for all three.
BG11579  +   433d ago
Totally agree with you on the first, second and third places.

I'll give first place to the 3DS and second to PS3 but can't really argue with those that think its the other way around, what is clear is that those two were light years ahead of all the others

Saying the PS4 has no games automatically labels you as an Xbox\Nintendo fanboy and automatically discredits your comment.

I am no fanboy, I have pretty much all last gen systems. Hell I sold my 360 because I dont play it anymore yet I am a fanboy, okay. The PS3 had a solid year with games like the last of us, ni no kuni, tales of xillia, and beyond two souls while the 3DS has Pokemon X/Y, Fire Emblem, Zelda, and Luigis Mansion. I chose the 3DS over it because I belief these games are probably fantastic as well as the PS3. If anything I am a PC fanboy.

Also the PS4 has no games when you have a PC. All the current games that are all amazing on the system are on PC and better. IMO Killzone is nothing special and neither is Knack.

PS3 and 3DS had a phenomenal year....they are definite one-two.....but I would personally put 3DS on top because Nintendo totally reinvented themselves with age old titles and Man! its unputdownable....
LAWSON72  +   430d ago
Sorry man you are just another blind Nintendo fanboy like me lol
mobijoker  +   428d ago
Nope!!! I am always a PC Gamer...but every now and then venture into other territories...What Xbox has, PC also has them(99% of them) but Nintendo and Sony are not so kind to us PC gamers...so no other way but to go to them...

No matter how much people hate(pretend to hate) Nintendo, no one can deny they are the most creative bunch out there...
