Edge, the videogame magazine published by the Future media group, has announced the recipients of the 2008 Edge Awards, presented each year to those titles influencing the industry and changing players' expectations.
Good to see more recognition for that title and Media Molecule, and it's really good to see Criterion as a runner-up for best studio. After the free and substantial additions Burnout Paradise has seen this year, they deserve way more recognition than they're getting from gaming media. "...while the Xbox 360 gaming console from Microsoft received the award for Best Hardware..." Someone's gonna have to explain that to me.
It's great to see LBP get this but overall I don't like Edge's reviews. They gave Resistance 2 a lousy 6. Most of their reviews are pretty bad.
"By all means, it makes no sense." - Kronk (Emperor's New Groove) The 360 wins best hardware? What? I can get Netflix on PS3. I can surf the net, video chat, play online for free...WITHOUT LAG (some games), do everything Live can do, earn trophies, and everything else. The 360 has nothing on the PS3. What could possibly make the 360 a better machine?
I think all of the RROD's is what making xbox 360 the ultimate gaming expe... Oh wait.
especially with third party apps like Tversity/Playon that do Hulu/Netflix these days the only thing PSn needs is voice across all, and music across all. but when u factor in free wifi/hdd/bluray/bluetooth/free PSN its hardly a breaker. just a compromise until sony patches
leon are you sure that you can talk with a friend while you both are playing a diferent game?. There is a lot of features than PSN don't have and Live have
Wow, I never knew that PSN and XboxLive were part of the hardware! Guess you learn something new everyday. ^_^
I get a new 1080p Bravia and the only game that doesn't look any better is GTA4. Game of the year on many sites is the only game that doesn't look any better with a higher contrast ratio and better colours, cause the colours didn't get any better, they suck on all TVs. Not that I don't love the game, but it's not GOTY material.
Tatotiburon just got owned by Rockleex.
MS just had a bit better of a year. If you were to score them I would do it like this 350 93/100 (hardware problems were mostly fixed) and PS3 would get 91/100. Sony fanboys shouldn't get discouraged. Their team still had a good year. It's like the patriots missing the playoffs with an 11-5 record.
now ive heard everything
Best hardware: the Machine with the exclusiv RROD and scratching DISCS häää.
That's not funny. Microsoft paid Toshiba millions of dollars for the exclusive rights to RROD and disc scratching!!! EDIT: Bubbles, my friend! Everyone give this guy bubbles. He needs MOAR BUBBLES!!!
Yeah, I don't bloody get it. Besides, how does Netflix count as hardware anyway? That crap is software on the console's hard drive. PS3 should win simply because it doesn't break all the time. I love my 360 for all the software features and game support, but the hardware is fossilized brontosaurus dung.
best hardware for 360, my old pc has the same amount of power as the 360, and it was made in 04 :/
xbot 360 got best hardware? HAHAHAAAAA yeah ok wutever man,this site is pathedic. even microsoft knows that ps3 has the better hardware. i would LOVE for edge to give an explanation as to why the 360's hardware is superior to the ps3's? someone needs to send Edge a Virus to shut tho's useless crackheads down once and for all.
I agree with EDGE. LBP is about the only game on the PS3 that is interesting, but it also is the best game overall in 2008. It's why I bought a PS3. What worries me is that it only sold just over a million copies. And its even helped with the PS3 bundle (also the one I bought). 17 million PS3 users out there and what are they buying???? BLURAY MOVIES I really have scratched my head and thought about it, but I can't figure it out. Why don't you get LBP from the shelves to play the highest rated exclusive on the PS3? WHY?
It's what the 360 is advertising so much... Anyway completely disagree I have Valkyria Chronicles, Resistance 2, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, Naruto, MGS4 and LBP so your comment amazes me.
wow what a waste of money then. I bought a ps3 because of ALL its unique and awesome exclusives you can only find on ps3. I have about 5 blu-rays movies and over 12 games. SORRY, but your "ps3 users onbly buy blu-rays" hypothesis fails..hard. You moron why get a ps3 if you hate it so much you f!cking hypocrite.
"All it's unique and awesome exclusives"? Dude. MGS4 is a movie, not so much gameplay. But well lets say that one is also great. After that, there aren't any other AAA games scoring on or over 9 out of 10. And certainly no more games that I would like to play. I don't like Ratchet & Clank. I might want to play Uncharted, but that's about it! I don't mind about the money buying a PS3 just for LBP. I got Motorstorm 2 also which is good, not great, just good. The most and best games are on my 360. Well if my hypothesis fails hard, tell me then, why did the two most anticipated PS3 titles this Christmas, Resistance 2 and LBP only sold about 1 million? WHY???? Tell me that to see if you're not a 'moron'
LBP deserves the praise. It's my personal game of the year as well. Glad it's getting the recognition it deserves.
"Xbox 360 gaming console from Microsoft received the award for Best Hardware" wow... just wow...
