IGN: Console Showdown - PS3 vs. Wii vs. 360

Welcome to IGN Australia's 2008 Console Showdown, where we pit the games of the PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 against one another in an all-out brawl. Over the next few days, we'll be looking at which system had the best games this year in a genre by genre breakdown, we'll be comparing the games available on WiiWare, PSN and XBLA, and we'll be crunching numbers to judge each system's performance based on scores. We're kicking the features off today, however, with a look at system exclusives. Which console had the strongest line-up of exclusives in 2008?

Winner : Playstation 3

The story is too old to be commented.

I still need to buy Fable 2 and Valkyria Chronicles.

Danja3651d ago (Edited 3651d ago )

Valkyria Chronicles is amazing can't go wrong with it....

over all 3 systems had a good year though...and next year is looking even better...good time to be gamers. XD

TheColbertinator3650d ago

Valkyria Chronicles is a gem.I have been enjoying it for weeks.

0verdrive3650d ago

lol not ANOTHER one of THESE articles...

that being said, score one for the big (black) man. =D

patterson3650d ago (Edited 3650d ago )

Valkyria Chronicles was a great game. I'm glad reviewers everywhere are giving it props. Hopefully more people will pick it up.

That's been the problem for me lately though... too many good games out there I can't keep up!

Next on my list is Siren: Blood Curse. Been putting that off because I've been debating about upping my hard drive or waiting for it on Blu-ray.

Ahh screw it, I'm buying it tonight! :D

house3650d ago

over all i think it did have better games

Sarcasm3650d ago

"Valkyria Chronicles"

Quite Possibly this game is the biggest sleeper hit. I don't know about the sales numbers, but it's definitely an EXCELLENT VIDEO GAME regardless.

Next years title will be " Which system managed to barely hang on after PS3 dominance in 2009"


"Which system managed to not get itself mopped on the floor by an overwhelming PS3 romp which doesn't look like it going to end going into 2010"

ChampIDC3650d ago

Well, the PS3 definitely does have the best exclusives this year, but the Wii still prints money. Darn casual gamers...

Product3650d ago

anyone else notice that some of the game ratings were
Example:they used the score from AU for Mario Kart wii which was 7.9 when the ign us gave it a 8.5.Why pick the lower score...this happened on alot of games from what i looked up.
What gives?

Yeh and to add, how the hell did mario kart wii get an 7.9 on any site>? There is no way the game is worth any less than 8.5.

But then again, I have been a winner over all ever since I bought all three consoles. In the end, I don't play consoles, I play games. Kudos to Sony though for pulling out all the stops this year and making a great leap in the console arena.

Well good job PS3. All systems had good exclusives but the PS3 definitely had the most and the best.

fuzon3651d ago

If u are looking for a console with best games then definitely PS3 is the best choice

on a side note TDK sold over 2m on blu ray worldwide on LAUNCH DAY

It sold 600,000 copies on BLU RAY on the DAY OF LAUNCH in USA

Shaka2K63651d ago

Why im not surprised.

Sony is full of winners and kidtendo and shamesoft is full of losers thats why everybody always leaves their pathetic companies.

Breakfast3651d ago (Edited 3651d ago )

Sony gave IGN the money, they were supposed to be using to make Home a viable competitor to Live. Now with the lack of funds, Home will turn out to be terrible...all this for a positive article on the internet.

...tsk, tsk Sony, how low can you go? I now my loving MS will never pull such an act of corruption.


meepmoopmeep3651d ago (Edited 3651d ago )


it's about time Sony buys publications like MS does


Danja3651d ago (Edited 3651d ago )

now Expect Edge to counter this article..XD

Breakfast3651d ago

...i was just trying to email edge, kotaku, and 1up as quick as i could.

I made sure to tell them all about the shenanigans Sony is pulling. No one likes biased/payed off websites.


Why o why3650d ago

More studios

More games

More choice

More chances of flops

More chances of Successes to cushion the flops

= Happier ps3/multi console owners and they didnt even include the psn games, big or small. Wow

TheColbertinator3650d ago

Breakfast is teh awesome lol

meepmoopmeep3650d ago

lol, bubbles Breakfast.

i have hung up my troll ways, it's hard when i see you post though,
but i'm taking that 7 step program.

CryofSilence3650d ago (Edited 3650d ago )

Oh! It's a joke, I get it! >.>

Perhaps the better fitting word, and the word I should have used is, "Satire."

ultimolu3650d ago (Edited 3650d ago )

Lmfao @ Breakfast.

This really was the year of the PS3 in terms of software. I bought so many games that I have to beat them all during the holidays.

I'll donate a bubble too. You silly goose you...

steck673650d ago

lol people felt for it.

Sarcasm3650d ago

I heard of people putting the P on a pedestal. But now I see people are putting Breakfast there.
