Quality of Current Console Games - PS3 Leads

Often you will hear from gamers from one console group or the other "Your system has no quality games". In the last 6 months this has been true for owners of PS3, we hear it all the time. SPG has set out to investigate these claims.

Of all current consoles the PS3 has the highest percentage of games rated over 80%.
Of all current consoles the X360 has the lowest percentage of games rated under 50%.
The Wii has the lowest percentage of games over 80% and the most under 50% of any console.
The PSP has the highest percentage of games over 80% and the lowest percentage under 50%.

Submitter's note: you can check the validity of these claims yourself.

For example:
14 of the 44 released PS3 games have better rating than 80%. That is 31% of the games.

52 of the 188 released X360 games have better rating than 80%. That is 27% of the games.

Source: Sony Protection Group? Good lord give me a break.... I am pretty sure Sony will be just fine without the Sony Protection Group.

Speaking of this so called "news"... I like how they use a % rather than actual quality titles... Can we all admit that this is pathetic? Seriously .. Sony Protection Group?

I hope they have not cheated the statistics. :)

Actually, the source is Metacritic.com, which is a very reliable rating site for ALOT of things... you should check it out.

Who doesn't believe that Sony is actually working hard on making great quality first/third party titles that are interesting and unique? They ARE trying.

Poor MART :( You are in denial. lol

ShAkKa3711d ago

the easiest way to prove this is going to gamerankings.com.

techie3711d ago

Mart it's right. But it's not that impressive since there arent that many ps3 games released.

I can't see why others can't comperehend the same. Maybe in like 6 months to a year, but then again the 360 conntinues to pump out games. The easy tools and Support are a testement to that.

Sony's beast of a machine require extra man hours, not the best support, and a totally new way of programming non-traditionally.

SOny's Developers kits( $30,000)
MS developers kit(like $15,00)
Wii Developers kit($1200)

Why do you think smaller development houses rather Program for the 360 and Wii mainly right now"?, well them kits are basically free from Nintendo. You might have maybe 1, maybe 2 SDK from sony, for small firms.

It used to be 1 for each programmer. I met a lead animation developer ysterday at a friends BBQ, and I learned quite a lot about, how a PAIN it is, to work with NINTENDO, and the Cost of things.

Kool info. Thanks TnS for proof links. Wii has the largest percentage of crappy games and smallest share of good ones and yet its selling the most!! 360 is also doing great with the least amount of bad games.

DarkestHour003711d ago

This is comparing apples to oranges. MOST PS3 games are ports of good 360 games. It is to soon for a report like this to have credit.
