2013 Final Grades for Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo

VGW continues its semi-annual tradition of handing out grades to the "big three" in gaming. In the past, the results have been somewhat predictable, but with 2013 being such a wild ride for all three, the question of "which platform is *the* platform to own" was much more complicated. (3DS, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Looks about right
dolkrak  +   574d ago
No way Nintendo is a B with the WiiU atrocious failure. No 3rd party, no sales, only the 3DS is successful : D+

Microsoft : DRM fiasco, no used game, worst PR since Iraqi War minister, then 180 and Xbox One half flop in sales being outsold everywhere in the world. A clusterfuck trainwreck : F

Sony : great policies, gret games (including GotY The Last of Us), PS4 breaking every sales record and PS3 now on top worldwide in installed base vs 360 : A

I noticed you didn't mention the Vita, which is extremely lacking in sales right now. That's convenient.
DVAcme  +   574d ago
Even if it's a failure(so far) in sales, the Wii-U has had some very appealing games, with the Year Of Luigi offerings, Wind Waker HD and Super Mario 3D World(which is getting hailed as the best 3D Mario game since Mario 64). And the 3DS is still kicking major ass with some flagship releases, like Fire Emblem, Link Between Worlds, Shin Megami Tensei 4 and Pokemon. Although I DO think that it's ridiculous that Nintendo has a higher score than Sony. Even with the lackluster performance of the Vita, the PS4 is this year's success story.

Microsoft is perfectly fine where it is, though, and I agree with you that, if anything, the score's too high.
MWong  +   574d ago
Not even being a fanboy, I would've rated it:

Micro$oft: just as previous console cycle (XBox) lack of support for the XB360 after a new console announced, indicated no blockbuster titles for the still selling XB360, XBO fiasco (DRM, hurtful PR, GREEDY, changing management, oversold cloud experience, overpriced, underpowered, NSA alligations, spy camera always watching me, 180 policy changes, loss of consumer trust), good XBO console sells, lack luster launch lineup - Final Grade; C ... as an owner of both the XBox & XB360, M$ really shocked me this year. I am still waiting to buy a XBO for myself I want to see what M$ does.

Nintendo: while having virtually no 3rd party and disappointing Wii-U sales, still no damn online, the 3DS and 1st party titles kept them a float (no real passion to get that 3rd party support for the Wii-U to bring in new consumers, they are happy with 1st party software) - Final Grade; B- ... Nintendo fanboy so I really need Nintendo to step up and try better next console, or I won't be buying just like I skipped the Wii-U.

Sony: blockbuster titles for the PS3 (TLoU, GT6, B2S), release of a critically well recieved new PS4, lackluster launch titles (but still highest selling 1st party title of next-gen KZ:SF), disappointing Vita sales (slight bump with PS4 remote play launch), amazing PS4 sells, PS3 finally outpacing the XB360, Sony still supporting the PS3 - Final Grade; A- ... Sony did great overall this year with only 2 real dark spots the PS Vita and the PS4 launch lineup. 2014 will see many more games so I can't wait.

I don't think any of the 3 were great this year, but Sony was overall to me better. I still personally think Nintendo should leave consoles and go strictly into handhelds and software. I also think Sony should leave the handhelds and remain with consoles.

starfox079  +   574d ago
I don't agree with the online lacking compared to live/psn ?? i sold my 360 because the online was so slck on WiiU and never goes down whilst playing and on BO2 the community is Mature not screaming teenagers pecking your head,as far as the actual online gaming WiiU is equal just because the account is tied to the hardware that doesn't make WiiU's online inferior ?? psn/live have policies that prevent 3rd partys doing lots of stuff and they are closed,WiiU's online is open devs can do what they want and in the end you will see better online features on wiiu due to letting devs do almost anything they want,Shinen said with Fast racing neo we are using 4k/8k textures and they said they were able to do special things online in the game ?????

Plus saying WiiU is less powerful is fair enough but these authors need to also say the wiiu is just as capable though due to unique hardware design.

How can Sony end with a B when the PS4 is dominating right now lol? If anything Sony ended on an A+. The other consoles grades are spot on if not a little generous.
Badnik  +   574d ago
They're grading companies as a whole. Sony did let the Vita ball drop this year, and that's coming from a Vita owner. Other than that, they did knock it out of the park with the PS4 and the PS3's continued support. The Vita is what knocked points off.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   574d ago
It's a shame that they couldn't find a cost-effective way of making the PS3's support carry over into their PS4, though...
Chevalier  +   573d ago
Wii only had Just Dance 2014 and didn't even get Lego Marvel when this system usually gets all of the Lego games and at my work only has one listing into 2014 so how come Vita knocks off so much points? If that's the case then why does the Wii get a freepass? Or are you saying 3ds is enough to left up 2 systems (wii and wii U). No point deductions for the absolute terrible year for Wii and barely present Wii U and 3ds lifts Nintendo to B+ yet PS3 had the most diverse lineup and 3rd party exclusives, PS4 broke launch records and Vita had Tearaway, indies, remote play only deserves a B?! Please explain.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   574d ago
Because of the launch lineup underperforming, obviously. Fans expected more of the gameplay when they saw the increase in graphics, but it didn't pan out that way.
It sold as well as it did due to Sonys marketing, their e3 hijinks, and the promise of better graphics, which all equaled up to launch hype hysteria.
But this sort of grading takes more than sales from launch hype into account.

It's just that Nintendo and Sony did phenomenal this year the brought the best exclusives of the year and they get B's Microsoft lied left and right and turned their backs on their loyal fans to cater to casuals and tried to destroy gaming and deserted the 360 and they get a c- :/
InTheLab  +   574d ago
playstation plus destroys the other two. It is the best value out there right now and it's on the Vita as well. Add that to the highest rated exclusive as well as 4 triple A releases for the PS3 and the most successful launch in console history.

And then there's E3 and the fact that Sony basically saved the Xbox brand by leading and not following.

Anything less than an A is absurd but to rank Nintendo higher is laughable. The WiiU had 10 straight months of terrible sales and mediocre games. The Wii fell off the face of the Earth 2 years ago and the 3ds is the only positive N has at this point.

I think Nintendo gets a bit of a free pass with everything they do. They can continue to do the same thing for the next 40 years, and people dont seem to care. Not saying they make bad games, just I think everything they do is seen as slightly better then it really is. Zelda would be slammed for being out dated and behind the times, if Zelda was not on the box. Just my opinion though.

Like I said, I think they make good games, but I think if they make such great games, why not oh I dont know, give us something new for once. When was the last time they had a new ip? Disney didnt just stick with only making Mickey Mouse for 20 years, they did give us new experiences.
Beastforlifenoob  +   574d ago
I agree Nintendo should have gotten a B- and MSOFT should have gotten a D+(ish) and Sony should have gotten an A-.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   574d ago
I find it strange that you'd call Zelda "outdated and behind the times" when so many action-adventure games these days STILL use elements that are best exemplified in the Zelda series.

It's stayed alive as long as it has because it's a great series, even if the changes aren't huge in every entry.
Ol_G  +   574d ago
if you know the amount of detail polish and creativity they use for their games then you know why people keep praising them
nintendo games are first and foremost about fun how many times do you hear people saying they left a nintendo game with a smile on their face and how many times you hear those claims about other developers games
also if you did your homework you'd know they created a lot of new ip's over the years but it's probably not everyone's cup of tea
people seem to forgetting that games as disaster day of crisis and xenoblade are new ip's

starfox079  +   574d ago
Next year the grades will be as followed...

Nintendo A+
Sony B
Microsoft C

I'm sorry but with the wiiu games line-up in 2014 i just couldn't imagine Nintendo getting anything less than A+ i mean with-

Donkeykong
X
Bayonetta2
Hyrule Warriors
Mariokart 8
Smash bros 4
Fast Racing Neo
Miyamoto new title
That huge secret 3rd party exclusive

Watchdogs although it will get gimped along with the xbox1 version because Sony are paying Ubisoft to make ps4 version utimate basically to make all you teenagers think ps4 has best graphics ????? I'll still get it because i think WiiU version will be best and all 3 will look more a less the same,plus WiiU will have games around the same time with better graphics try X in japan first half of next year.....

I think all 3 consoles have around the same graphics when maxed out by the way its all knit picking when comparing Multiplats ect its exclusives running at max resolution and 60fps with true nextgen graphics that prove true power ??? wiiu has edram and the devs that tap into this like Shinin to get 8k textures and 1080p native/60fps using dx11 comparable graphics,Project CARS using the edram on the main cpu which in turn allows them to run the game so far on 1 core,Shadow of eternals footage was WiiU using dx11 at max ???? you simply can't say 1 console is better graphically and especially when they are so young....

Not to mention Black ops 3 and lots more.....Metroid Prime 4 and Wave Race need to happen....

Nintendo had a ridiculously good year with 3DS and the Wii U made a remarkable turnaround due to, surprise games!, and the future is bright for both. But dat 8 GB GDDR5 edges them out. Microsoft, lol. Steam, Apple, and Android should all be above MS.
Underworld  +   574d ago
The Wii U made a remarkable turnaround? What? Where? It sold terribly for the majority of the year and just got a boost for the holidays. Yeah it got a few more titles like Super Mario 3D, but still not many. Where is the "remarkable turnaround"? The 3DS did excellent though.

The remarkable turnaround is the few measly sales and finally breaking 5m sold. As for the games, 3 Marios in a single year, Pikmin, the wonderful 101. It's no wonder N took an entire year to do what the previous gen did in 6 or 8 months.

Credit where it's due. The 3ds killed. Hell, I bought my kids 2 of them. They are cheap and there's a load of great games for kids.
JackieCruise69  +   574d ago
Seems right to me. I'm sure Sony would have been higher if it weren't for the Vita.

And I'm sure Nintendo would have been lower if it weren't for the 3DS wrecking the competitors practically all year long.

I don't really know what to say about Microsoft, honestly. They were so-so.

Reeze  +   574d ago
This isn't based on sales. IMO, the Wii U was pretty good this year. It didn't get nearly as many amazing games as the 3DS, but my collection has grown exponentially.

Also, this is grading companies as a whole. That means it takes both 3DS AND Wii U into account and averages them. I think both had great years, despite sales on either end.
GordonKnight  +   573d ago
Just because the sales are low doesn't mean it's bad system. The reason the Wii U sales are bad is because most gamers hate Nintendo for some reason. IMO It's because most gamers can only afford one console and most of the adult games are on PS or XB. So, when that must have Nintendo game comes out and they can't play it, they start crying Nintendo should stop making consoles.

The Wii U has been a small snow ball at the top of a mountain and now it's rolling down the mountain. This is because a lot of Casual gamers just got the Wii U and the word of this amazing console is starting to spread. Also, Nintendo waited to Market the system until Mario 3D world was released.

Nintendo games are always about fun. I remember this everytime I go from playing PS or XB game to a nintendo game. Don't get me wrong I love realistic games, but some times they feel like a job at times.

Don't sell yourself short and pick-up a Wii U Today. You won't regret it.

Dakidog  +   574d ago
What I don't understand is how, the Lack of Wii U sales doesn't hurt Nintendos overall grade because of the argument(and opinion)that the games released for it in 2013 make it a "must own system". A company with a struggling console, with threats of 3rd party support disappearing for it's system should not be considered the best of the BIG 3.
DoctorJones  +   574d ago
Because funnily enough for most gamers it's the games that matter, not the sales. Unfortunately a lot of people on this site are more like analysts than gamers and spend most of their time playing sales instead of playing games.

If I'm not mistaken the article is basing it's grades off of everything(games,sales,apps,on line etc...).

That is fine! Just like Microsoft they have a big pool of IPs to make. People do not need 3rd party as much because they rarely go exclusive these days. You can find it with Microsoft or Sony. With 3DS sales alone they can be profitable. Look at Sony? been bleeding out for the past decade. After being slayed by Samsung and Apple on the TV and smartphone market I would not worry too much about the big N. Popular with the fans "maybe not" going out of business...talk to Sony about that one...

What amazing games did the Wii U released apart from a remake of a game cube Zelda game priced at $60.00, a Mario game which basically was Mario 3D land with cat suits.

Guys, the article isn't saying the Wii U is better than the PS4.
The article is pointing to the 3DS's incredible releases over the year, and its sales absolutely destroying any system out right now, as well as the Wii U's turnaround (it's actually selling respectably right now).
Sure, the PS4 is doing madly well, but not as well as the 3DS has been doing all year.
And yeah, the Wii U still isn't doing great, but it's doing better (game-wise, and sales-wise (at least in the most recent reports)) than the VITA has been doing.
Also, the PS4 has worse exclusives than the Wii U, anyway.
s45gr32  +   573d ago
The wii u doing better how with a Zelda game cube remake, a Mario game that's pretty much the 3DS version of Mario 3D land with cat suits. The only game exclusive worth owning is the wonderful 101 and no third party support to speak off. In contrast I agree as far as the 3DS is concerned.

What they failed to take into account is the numerous crossbuy games for PS3/PS Vita. Granted, its not easy, but while the Vita may not have had a ton of console exclusives it did have a lot of great games. But, that's the problem with the Vita, so many of the great games for it you can play on another platform.
A LIVING LEGEND  +   573d ago
I would go with Sony C+,Microsoft D.
Nintendo I can't honestly grade as I have no idea what they did in 2013 outside of common knowledge,ie; 3DS sells alot.Game-wise I have no clue.
s45gr32  +   573d ago
Microsoft F
Sony C
Nintendo D

Yes Nintendo a D due to its amazing effort as far as 3DS is concerned, fair pricing for both the hardware and software. Third party support, good online gaming, lots and lots of great games like pokemon x and y. It's the Wii U that brings Nintendo grade down, no third party support, no marketing, a remake of a game cube Zelda priced at $60.00 outrageous. Mario 3D world is the same Mario game as its 3DS version now with cat suits........

Microsoft an F no backwards compatibility, pay to play online, every single feature behind a pay wall. Also if it wasn't for gamers, the media and the U. S. Navy pleading, boycotting, and pretty much force Microsoft to change its xbox one policies. Ignored the xbox 360 for the entire year, and day one patch for its system.

Sony got a C for lack of backwards compatibility, pay to play online, microtransanctions in GT 6, luck warm PS4 launch games and the vita is still struggling.

Maybe in 2014 it may get better but PC gaming is still the better platform for gaming overall. Assassins Creed 4 black flag was for $35.00 on Amazon for PC download during the holiday sale. Disappointingly Steam was at $44.,00 dollars :'(. Still bargain prices for games, free online gaming, and backwards compatibility. That will be very hard for the consoles to overcome specially with the release of Steam machines. Overall PC gaming as a whole gets a solid B mainly due to the overabundance of early access games........
