Another AAA title on the PS3?

Which other game has an average of over 9 on the PS3?

There is no AAA title yet on the PS3. There is one good game, not great, just good: Resistance.

So this is the first AAA title then probably.

Well resistence is around 88% and on many sites a 90%. So not far off. Just wondered how many 360 launch titles were 90% or more...average wise.

after nearly 4 months (4) of being released, this is the Ps3's first No.1 selling game, that's pretty POOR :[

wii sports has been out ages, and has sold just 3,000(also just past the 1 million mark) copies less!

Dead or Alive 4 sold 80,000 copies (we all know the japanese dont favour the 360 much) in its first week :]

so, when you put things into perspective, it's NOTHING to shout about really :]

I posted one of those articles just to show how everything "pro-Sony" does not get a chance to flourish. Its attacked and bashed right out the gate. No one ever gives anything on sony anytime. I guess thats what happens when your on top.

NINTENDO'S on top in a BIG way!

360 > U.S

Europe is Sony's last hope!
