Very close indeed. Let's see how next year will look.

ICUP3340d ago

Left 4 Dead also on PC, so not 360 exclusive.

The Killer3340d ago

ps3 is where the games at, but if anybody insist on how poor sales it got and that because of the ps3 poor sales(its still ahead of 360 this year) he/she will throw away some money on a console who sold more and leave the best games then go ahead, u might as well buy a wii and DS since they sell a hell of amount of consoles!

sony playstation is always where the best games is located!!

power of Green 3340d ago

I Guess PS3 had to win at something althoguh this chart was carefully desinged to put PS3 ontop lol.

Top 10 retail or top ten scoring games? why is it retail?

No big deal the top two PS3 titles were overhyped.

tatotiburon3340d ago

Naruto the Broken Bond is 80% and why they didn't include the PSN games and Arcade games...i'm wondering why mmmmm

thor3340d ago

LBP and MGS4 were overhyped as much as L4D was - if you don't like the game so much yourself you'll think it's overhyped. I tried the demo of L4D and I hated it - so for me it doesn't deserve those scores.

PirateThom3340d ago (Edited 3340d ago )

I'll work out the numbers if they did include downloads for 360 and PS3:

LittleBigPlanet: 95%
MGS4: 94%
Resistance 2: 87%
Wipeout HD: 87%
Valkyria Chronicles: 86%
MLB 08: The Show: 85%
Pixel Junk Monsters: 83%
SingStar: 82%
Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds: 81%
MotorStorm: Pacific Rift: 81%

Average: 86.1%

Gears of War 2: 93%
Braid: 93
Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2: 90%
Left 4 Dead: 89%
Fable II: 89%
Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise: 82%
Castle Crashers: 82%
Tales of Vesperia: 81%
Ninja Gaiden II: 81%
Poker Smash: 81%

Average: 86.1%

360 really showed PS3 by scoring the same average when download titles are added. Poker Smash sure is on par with Motorstorm and Ninja Gaiden II.

PirateThom3340d ago (Edited 3340d ago )

Rez and Ikaruga are also available on such consoles as PS2, DreamCast, GameCube and so on.

N+ is on DS and PSP.

Pixel Junk Monsters Encore is an expansion pack to PJM, so it doesn't count either.

They don't count.

Crash Commando is the only one I did miss, which conviently puts the PS3 ahead.

LittleBigPlanet: 95%
MGS4: 94%
Resistance 2: 87%

Valkyria Chronicles: 86%

Average: 86.1%

Helghast3339d ago

LMAO! Grand Turismo Prologue made the top-10 and it's just a DEMO! I'm glad others enjoyed it as much as I did! The REAL GT5 is gonna be amazing!

If GT5 doesn't come out in 2009 I'm gonna be pissed!

bakasora3339d ago

though the scale of chart is kinda misleading.

B-Rein3339d ago

yeh tyhanks for displaying it on the comments (for those hu never click the sourse and decide to comment biased stuff)

yeh ps3 had some awesome exclusive this yer
the 360 did have some good 1s gears of war 2 and fable 2 were good but ps3 had more games i preferred this yer

gaffyh3339d ago

Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection is really awesome /sarcasm

Yeh looks like its aclear win for ps3 with 85.1% and xbox 360 with 82.6.. dunno what the guys above are on about

ultimolu3340d ago

*does a moonwalk dance for the PS3*

No doubt.

I'm STILL amazed by how well Kojima wove the story of Metal Gear Solid together. What he did is nothing short of incredible. MGS has THE best storyline I have ever seen period.

Smacktard3340d ago (Edited 3340d ago )

I'm wondering why Left 4 Dead is on the Xbox 360 list...

edit: Also, nice skewed, misleading chart.

Smacktard3340d ago

How am I getting disagrees? The chart IS misleading. It starts at about 80% instead of starting at 0%, which makes it look like PS3 has a way better exclusive average %, when in reality it's very close between all three.

thewhoopimen3340d ago (Edited 3340d ago )

The reason why you got the disagree is because the article STATES that the statistic is scaled. No need for your to re-emphasize or spin what everyone else can read. They aren't misleading if they state it to your face.

y0haN3340d ago

Left 4 Dead isn't exclusive. If MGS4 was on PC you wouldn't have it there.

Eiffel3340d ago

How can you put a single persons enjoyment of a exclusive into a graph..

Some people may have liked the game, some may have not.

Both had good exclusives..saved you 2 pages of debates and BS.

Clopsy3340d ago (Edited 3340d ago )

I believe he used metacritic which compiles multiple critic reviews.
So, it's not just one point of view.

Though, I agree with you about both having good exclusive games.

Eiffel3340d ago (Edited 3340d ago )

You misread I'm not stating that one person decides the fate of which console had the better exclusives.

My point was no person should have that right. Freedom of opinion still exists if anyone here remembers. I may like a certain game but I know people out there might not like it like I do. But putting opinions in a collection into a graph as if it were fact is just stupid. No console can have better exclusives if a person enjoyed it while another didn't.

Again opinions can never become fact depending on the conditions.

Clopsy3340d ago (Edited 3340d ago )

I know, I just took your post too literal. There are people that like certain games and dislike others. But, to be honest, you can't really not expect somebody to do stuff like this. Especially with the whole PS3 vs 360 debate.

Eiffel3340d ago

Agreed.

If its not a system they have or like, be a complete jackass towards them.

Thats all this debate has become on this site.

Unicron3340d ago

Well said Eiffel. I agree. It would be nice to actually discuss games here. Trying to put a numbered score on fun is foolish.
