Let no-one say, "there's no games for the PlayStation" again.
I HAVE SO MANY GAMES IM GETTING WEATHER MULTIPLAT OR NOT.
IM JUST TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHICH GAMES TO GET SO MY WALLET ISNT EMPTY.
ahh yes.. that actually died when the ps3 came out with it's luanch titles.
But does the PS3 have games that make you buy the system?
any AAA+ games?
it is true. PS3 has games... games like lair
Edit: I see I'm getting a lot of disagrees... oh well.. it wont change the FACT & Reality that PS3 has no exclusive AAA games.
do you believe half of the things that come out of your piehole? AAA+? Plus???? Name me one game on the 360 or the Wii that is "Triple A plus" What does that even mean man?
Fact: You have never played LAIR, so talk not of that which you know nothing of sir. Your desperation shines through when trying to highlight one of the system's controversial games instead of listing the games that have been met with critical acclaim. Pathetic.
If you hate trollers click this link and comply with the instructions.
Also report 1.3 as offensive.
Is Crisis Core coming for the U.S. and if so... when?
...he looks like such a smug prick in it.
AAA+ games on PS3: R&C:ToD, Uncharted, Folklore (for me).
Well and Haze (may be).
sure. whatever you say
...what colour is the sky in your world?
You might think those titles are AAA but R&C and Uncharted are just A titles. To be AAA a game needs:
1. Critical acclaim (i.e. sustained average of over 90% - great place to get that is www.gamerankings.com).
2. Amateur critic acclaim (i.e. gamers also agree that its a title that should not be missed).
3. Commercial success.
Its ok that you might consider R&C and Uncharted as AAA but then you should also be ok with people calling you a fool.
Are you saying the difference between A and AAA has nothing to do with the gamers fun?
AAA is in the eye of the beholder. For college folk it may be a game like CoD4, for teenagers it may be Guitar Hero/Rock Band, for little kids it could be Loco Roco. In many ways, games are like movies, just because the big name reviewers don't like it doesn't mean that every consumer won't like it (and vice versa).
I think the PS3 now, like the 360, has both games and home entertainment features that can be enjoyed by everyone. No need for people to diss and piss on everything that's not what they like.
Eye of the beholder???
NO THAT IS FOR THE NICHE GROUP.
that's like saying... I hate Ace Combat because I hate planes
Stick to REALITY.
AVERAGES ARE THERE FOR A REASON.
NO AAA GAMES ON THE PS3.
Do you need a shoulder to cry on, Double-Edged? Did something make you angry? Get you upset?
Here's a good example of what I was talking about. Counter strike is a game that was reviewed by Gamespot way back and got somewhere in the mid 8's. Now this game, I have played for at least 4 years and I consider it to be one of my favorite games of all time. Yet, according to the scores it received, was not considered to be a AAA title.
Just the other day I talked to one of my friends and he said that he used to play this game for the Nintendo for hours. I've never heard of this game until he mentioned it that night (and I've forgotten what it was called already! It had something to do with hunting animals in the forest), but he said he could play it for hours upon end. To him, it was a AAA title.
So my advice to people now is, look at the type of games on each system (if you can only buy one system) and base your decision upon the games you'd like to play the most. The only thing I make sure to mention to them is that the 360 is poorly made, so if they get one make sure they get a good warranty with it.
this list of games still wont be enough. Pity. For me this no games nonsense was never a problem as ive played ps3 games since its uk launch which, although late, was kinder to europeans because RFoM and MStorm were also released then. Too many games IS a problem when you have real lives outside of gaming. How much time can you really put into gaming. I have a family and friends like many gamers here do and im sure i dont need to mention the cost of gaming nowadays. Gaming IS an important part of my life, not my whole life.
bubbles coming your way. Although gaming is my life, I respect your opinion.
dont get me wrong though, gaming has shaped who I have become, its just the other things have also had an influence on my life and lifestyle. love gaming. It brings people together.
That's okay. 360 has those grounbreaking exclusives such as...
Hour of Victory
lmfao. Got damn that system is a joke!
P L A Y B 3 Y O N D
I rather play those then
Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom
THE GIANT CRAB!!!! and riiiiiidge racer.
Your system sucks balls. LOL.
still can't beat Gears.
"Let no-one say, "there's no games for the PlayStation" again."
Let me try: There's no games for the PlayStation. There. I said it!
There're no games for xbox.
PS3 only has 37 games with a ranking of 80 or higher on Metacritic.com. While 360 has 81 games with 80 or higher. And the Wii, well, the poor Wii has only 14 games ranked at 80 or higher...ouch. Are people really just buying the Wii because its cheap and cute?
Some more interesting factoids:
*Games in the green (above 75) on metacritic.com - PS3 = 53, 360 = 134 (wow) and Wii = 25.
*Must have titles (90 or above) on metacritic.com - PS3 = 3 (yikes), 360 = 12, Wii = 4 (ouch)
FLAME ON!!! lol
Shouldn't you be doing something better than spending your time doing comparisons on metacritic?
Let's see here, your figures are based on the following:
A site that gathers various reviews from magazines and websites. But not all reviews are taken. Only high traffic sites. High traffic is in no way related to the quality of the review (ie: playboy, maxim, etc)
To make matters worst, there are xbox and ps exclusive sites. So how do you figure those in when you compare average reviews?
So please put down that calculator and go play your games. Metacritic is not made to compare systems.
The article is wrog, it is 160 games.
We all know that 08 is ps3's year so say all you want about there being a lack of "AAA" games were about to see a flood of killer ps3 games starting with UT3 and it dont stop till FF13 drops. IMO PS3 games like Warhawk, Tekken 5DR Online have been some of the greatest titles of 07.
Your comparing a 1st year library to a 2nd year library anyway...
...If developers quit making 360 games all together there would still be more great games on 360 than PS3 by the end of '08. And that isn't going to happen, there will be plenty of great titles on '08 for 360 as well (and they'll be 3rd year titles, btw).
Seriously, if there are 44 PS3 games next year that average 80 or higher (which there probably won't be) in review scores and there are NO more 360 games released all year long, there will still be as many good 360 games and PS3 games :) (kinda funny when you think of it).
I'll not have a PS3 until the price drops another 100 bucks american and there is at least one MUST-HAVE, EXCLUSIVE title. So far I haven't heard of one coming (only one I would consider would be FF, but I'm not paying 500 bucks to play it).
I know about FFXIII, MGS4, and Killzone 2. What are the other games that are expected AAA in 2008 for PS3?
What other games are there for 3shitty in 2008? Gaylo 4? Gays of war 2?
Both will be out on PC within a matter of months?
What is coming out for PS3 next year beyond the games I mentioned?
it's not the ps3 doesn't have games, it didn't have games a year ago.
now the problem is they don't have any good games that you can't get elsewhere.
other than the exception of uncharted, and this game is nowhere near getting the attention it deserves, as it is a great looking game.
sony needs their big guns NOW, not '08. and haze being pushed back doesn't help.
this xmas will go to the 360 and the wii, good luck in '08 sony.
why now??? you mean you want it to blow its load like the 360 with halo and ME out NOW.. and with nothing for the future??? sorry buddy, but this generation is very misinformed.. everything is now now now. The lifecycle of these consoles is 5 years and longer, and with the ps3.. one could say at the least 7. Now you want everything now now.. doesnt work that way, and with 2008 coming along.. the games will get here. Im sure sony has many other games up their sleeve for 2009 and beyond, can't say the same for M$. If anyone thinks that 15 million consoles sold is a winner.. is freaking stupid. The xbox sold what 25 million, in 4 years, and that was a freaking FLOP. now 360 starting on its 3rd year with around 13 million sold. and NO MORE GAMES coming out that people are giddy over. Yeah.. you know that old story, the tortoise and the hare.. well the hare is about to take a Nap and the tortoise is strapping on some rocket boosters in a couple of months.. good times.
You make some good points Boink, but I think with the game industry still expanding, everyone (Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony) can make a profit this year.
I think the only ones that have to pay close attention to their market shares is the cinema industry, namely Hollywood. Things that are killing it are movie downloading and DVD pirating, and they can't get moving along again partially because of the high definition format war.
