PS3 games best-rated - Analyst

EEDAR research results show 1-in-8 games for Sony console get average review scores of at least 85%; rate drops to 1-in-50 for DS and Wii.

Anecdotally, Nintendo's DS and Wii systems have a glut of subpar offerings rushed out to capitalize on both systems' wide-ranging popularity. Electronic Entertainment Design and Research analyst Jesse Divnich today offered a bit more concrete evidence to support that notion in a report breaking down games' average review scores by the quarters in which they were released.

Just writing my first comment...

"On the high end of the spectrum was the PlayStation 3. About 13 percent of the games released for Sony's console scored 85 or better, compared to 10 percent of games for the Xbox 360. Industry-wide, about 5 percent of games surpassed the high quality threshold."

And there are more great games on the way. Sony's E3 showing cant come soon enough. Quality hardware, quality software, and quality services, only on PlayStation.

If you want quality over quantity, PS3 is the console of choice for those with a limit of one console. Glad I have both the PS3 and the 360. having both keeps from having spare time on my hands to waste on shovelware regardless of the system.

Defiantly is great to own both. I think both have great games to get excited about

lol, really?

in any other job you would be fired for practicing such ethics like the guy you mentioned did but, for some reason gaming "journalists" seem to get a free pass.....C'est la vie

I will take quantity over percentage any day.

My point being two-fold:

a) If the quantity exceeds another platform, I will ignore the percentage. Do you want 100% with only 1 game or 10% with a 1000 games? Yes, that was exaggerated.

b) It is reasonable to expect that as a system get's more popular it is reasonable to believe that the quality goes down i.e more crapware for a fast back. Just look at the Wii and the DS.

Numbers can be made to look good depending on the metrics.

Xbox 360 still has the best games. Go to Metacritic and see for yourself

;)

Quality, Variety and quantity.

Sony already has quality and variety. Soon quantity as well. When you have 20 internal studios not including 2nd parties releasing games for you on top of 3rd parties. You will eventually have more content than others. We knew this when the PS3 was announced.

What xbox fans fail to see is that the only reason why there are more x360 games now is because the x360 was released 1 year ahead.

IdleLeeSiuLung3157d ago (Edited 3157d ago )

Well I want my games now, not in the future if you catch my drift.

In all seriousness, do people think there aren't enough games on the 360? I mean I'm busy with so many games and there are so many more games released that there isn't enough time to play them all let alone the money to buy them.

So why this talk about no games? In fact, I think the only real way to enjoy gaming is to buy all three consoles. Best of all worlds except for your wallet and you know social time with people.

I find it quite entertaining that both of the posters above you got lots of agrees for praising the PS3.. But, when you praise BOTH the PS3 and x360 you don't get as many agrees and you get more disagrees. Funny how that works out..

Both systems are great and have something for everyone..
I don't see why people can't accept that. =/

Can't really disagree myself, I've been having fun with the games that are coming out as of late. Not to mention looking forward to the ones that will be coming out. Next game to get Demon's Souls.

Good job Sony and the developers who make the games.

Myst3157d ago

Of course beers' all around!

No I.D. needed either :)

ThanatosDMC3157d ago

I imported Demon's Souls! I cant wait!

Oh yeah, dont forget Fat Princess is coming soon. I hope they keep it below $10... i really hope they have more maps than those initial four that they were talking about on the betas.
