Here at we decided to take an objective and unbiased look at which system we believe won out in 2008. Using Sales figures, hardware specifications, the four best exclusive titles of 2008, and online capabilities we determined the winner, read on to find out!"

I think this article does a decent job of taking an unbiased look at both consoles progress in the year 2008, considering it is an Xbox 360 only site.....

But I didn't need this article to tell me the 360 is the better gaming platform. I feel like they took it too easy on the ps3. It's overpriced, it's library is inferior, it's online is a perverts haven, and where are the funking rpg's? If KZ2 flops, I'm selling my ps3.

"I'm selling my ps3"

Right... like you really have one.

Terabo3631d ago

Just because I own a ps3 doesn't mean I should be a ps3 fanboy. Sony has dropped the ball time and time again with the ps3, and I don't like it. This generation MS has kept their eyes on the prize, and made a fantastic game machine. Sony isn't focused on anything except selling blu-ray, and it's stuck out like a sore thumb. If you want to settle for Sony's half assed approach to this generation, be my guest. I expected them to perform as the industry leader, and they sure didn't do it this gen.

badz1493631d ago are you babbling about?

"This generation MS has kept their eyes on the prize, and made a fantastic game machine. Sony isn't focused on anything except selling blu-ray, and it's stuck out like a sore thumb."

M$ sure do aiming for the price and made a fantastic game machine that keep failing but people still buy it! if that is your definition of 'fantastic', I agree! Sony only focus on selling BD? what are you? blind? this year, Sony is leading M$ by far in term of exclusive and PS3 games are rated higher this year compared to 360! sure Sony also focus on selling BD but guess what...their games are also on BD as well and there's nothing wrong with that! what stuck? BD movies sold at a faster rate than DVD in the same amount of time DVD was in its early days. I don't think sony's approach is half a$$ed this gen because they came out with the most complete home entertainment maching compared to M$ with a high failure rate machine and Nintendo with a machine that can't even play DVD and not even HD capable! people currently prefer the other 2 half a$$ed console compared to PS3 but the PS3 is selling considerably well for it competing at $399!

Saint Sony3631d ago

Playstation brand has always been the leader, eeeeeenormous userbase/fanbase. Try to beat that... hmm...seems Microsoft and Xbox is pretty much doing it atm.

No one did expect 360 to do this well. Imagine where it would be if the so called RROD would have never happened. PS3 would be DEAD already... now it just takes a bit more longer for PS3 to die.

phosphor1123631d ago

The Xbox 360: 25 Million, as of November 25, 2008
Playstation 3: 16.84 million, as of September 30, 2008

Taken from the article. If the PS3 had 1 more year added on to them, would you think they would be a lot closer to the 25 million mark?
8.16 Million difference for 1 year. I think they can sell 8 million in 1 year, they have been selling 8 mil. (avg) for the past two years. So, next time this year, they will be up to par with 360 sales. Amirite? Well, unless the economy crashes.

@Saint Sony

If only Microsoft took their time with the console then maybe there wouldn't be an RROD. At the same time, if the RROD never existed, then the 360's userbase wouldn't be as big.

wow thats a surprise...

tomorrow psu declares ps3 the fancy that

these articles are getting more retarded by the second

UltimaEnder3631d ago

Not really sure why you're so negative, it's the end of the year and a perfect time to look back and see how the two major next-gen consoles did; the whole point of online discussion and debate is to look at other peoples opinions and either agree or disagree with them, figure out why and discuss it....someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed (pointing at you)......

Sully3631d ago (Edited 3631d ago )

He is alowed to be negative if he wants. Its not his fault you posted a biased article, from

Next your going to be telling him when and where he can take a sh1t.

hoplo3631d ago

then psu would be wrong. based on numbers and exclusives and online play, how could you possibly vote the ps3 ahead of the 360?? Maybe they closed the gap, like the article says, but they are still slightly behind. Granted, some games on the PS3 look better, but do you want 4 games that look and play really well, or 30 games that play well and look pretty good?? 1 year from now, the ps3 might be the winner, but as of right now, the 360 has to take the top spot.

Good article, I enjoyed reading the facts.

MURKERR3631d ago (Edited 3631d ago )

then it'l be worthwhile 'planetxbox' has its alligence to 360 so this article is laughable

and yeh i gotta hangover ;)

LeonSKennedy4Life3631d ago (Edited 3631d ago )

Numbers: PS3 outsold the 360 all year until the price cut.

Exclusives: MGS4, LBP, R2 /vs./ L4D, GeOW2, and Fable. While it may be opinion, most people would take LBP or MGS4 solely over all three of the 360 exclusives.

Online: COD:WaW has the same online. EVERY multi-plat has the same online. Resistance 2 has LAGless online play...and it's much more satisfying to play than COD:WaW. Trophies are out. We have in-game XMB, free themes, an up-to-date flash-enabled web browser, a nice new video store that's growing exponentially, Home, video chat, Buzz:Quiz TV...THE best trivia game out there. I'm so addicted to that game.

Sheddi3631d ago

hey hey hey hold up now!
Ive got only a ps3 but i can still play L4D and Gears2. So take those two out. Their on PC too u know.

prowiew3631d ago


Common. Give the site a break. Is an 360 site, but probably he is writing the article to their readers (who are probably 100% 360 fans). It seems retarded because it is posted on n4g, a multiplatform site.

I think asking or wanting a 360 site to realistically pick the Playstation 3 as the winner for 2008 would be asking too much, many realistic PS3 owners would argue the same point in favor of the 360; however this writer did give a decent argument for Sony's system and it looks (from his points) that the PS3 did MUCH better in 2008 than in 2007; the gap is closing and Microsoft better have some heavy-hitters for 2009 or this article may have a different ending this time next year... .. ...

"I think asking or wanting a 360 site to realistically pick the Playstation 3 as the winner for 2008 would be asking too much"
Then by that u mean that this article is biased and made by fanboys right? hahaha that was funny and why is this article approved ?

goflyakite3631d ago (Edited 3631d ago )

Whoa, I was very surprised when I read PlanetXbox360 chose the Xbox 360 the winner of 2008.


DNAgent3631d ago

The 360 is on fire already?

*flys to the light of the flames*
