Great list, man.. Great list.

@Why o why - What's wrong with Viva..? =(

jack who4251d ago

Viva Pinata is fun so bite ne

Why o why4251d ago

i play with a sackboy so dont get it twisted. Im just saying calling it great is reaching in my opinion. Its more like an 'in between game' like what psn has like hv bowling or tekken dr than a full price game. The problem there is its way too big for xbl and MS dont have a 'in between game' platform

@ jack who:

And with only console exclusives you have... Gears of War 2, Fable 2, and Viva Pinata.

@ PostedUp: I sincerely hope that was a shot at sarcasm. I don't know for sure, because I think this is really what PS3 fans believe.

I think the PS3 has a fairly strong offering. MGS4, Little Big Planet, Valkyria Chronicles, Resistance 2.

The Wii isn't half-bad either, with Brawl, No More Heroes, Boom Blox, Wario Land Shake It, and Mario Kart. 2009 should treat it better though.

PoSTedUP4251d ago

no i am serious and i think vampire rain should be in their also.

Smacktard4251d ago

Okay, phew, now I know you're joking.

UNCyrus4251d ago

Did you even read the article... the majority of the mentioned games were PS3 exclusives. Stop trolling and learn to read

cuz I was once like you. But I was reborn and the realization that the ps3 is superior, is quite clear now that I own one. JOIN ME PP, INTO PS3 REALM! You'll thank me in the end.

Hello. =)

callahan094251d ago

Why does everyone ignore the existence of Valkyria Chronicles (and Disgaea 3) when they make these little lists of the best blahblahblah?

UNCyrus4251d ago

I don't ignore Valkyria Chronicles.. I'd had been eyeing that game since it's Japanese release in February. Had it preordered here in the states for a couple of months. That is the sleeper hit of the year for sure.

I'm just shocked that gamespot gave PS3 the time of day in the article, it seems so out of character of them
