Edge magazine's reviews show most 360 bias while IGN seems to prefer PS3 and Wii.
It's no surprise that game reviews can be contentious issues. Few fan bases are as passionate as gamers. Anytime you introduce opinion into the mix you're more than likely to have someone with the exact opposite view as you. Many gamers have cried foul on internet forums when they see their favorite titles receive less than stellar reviews or see games they personally don't care for achieve scores they feel the title is undeserving of. Often the review scores will simply be written off as "Oh, that's Gamespot. They don't like anything on the Console X."
SMG decided to test that idea to see if there was any credibility to it. We reviewed review sample scores from 9 well known publications to see if there was any evidence of a bias displayed.
The sites under the microscope were as follows: Edge, IGN, Gamespot, 1up, GameTrailers, Eurogamer, Gamepro, CheatCodeCentral and Gamespy.
