The Best (And Worst) Of 2008: Sports Legends Editors' Choice Awards

For the second year running, the Xbox 360 is the king of consoles. Barely edging out the impressive PS3, the swanky new dash and the amazing exclusives like Gears of War 2 and Fable 2 put Microsoft over the top. The Wii's casual focus didn't garner it any votes this year.

It will be very hard if not near impossible for the PS3 to ever surpass the number of great titles on 360. Ps3 had a better line up last year than their 2007 line up. But with it taking over 3 years a pop on average to make a standout PS3 exclusive, I don't see it ever happening.

Did you read the article? Although it has the 360 as the best console, their other nominations just don't add up

Game of the Year: LittleBigPlanet - PS3 Exclusive
Xbox 360 Game of the Year: Dead Space - Multiplat
PS3 Game of the Year: LittleBigPlanet - PS3 Exclusive
Best Online Game: Left 4 Dead - PC and 360
Best Action/Adventure Game: Metal Gear Solid 4 - PS3 Exclusive
Best DLC: Bioshock challenge rooms - PS3 Exclusive
Best Boss: Revolver Ocelot - PS3 Exclusive
Best New Character: Sackboy - PS3 Exclusive
Biggest Risk-Taker: Sony - Amen to that!

So the 360 was the best console in 2008, yet this site did not award a 360 exclusive game anything! And don't tell me Left 4 Dead is 'console exlusive'. They have PC nominations on their site too.

That depends on what Microsoft will be releasing in 2009 and beyond and whether it will be considered "quality." We already know what PS3 is bringing in terms of exclusives this year and beyond and it's quite impressive. if Insomniac can release quality PS3 titles every year so can their other first party devs.

I Have A Confession, I Like The Fallout 3 Green Filter

The game looks too clean without it.

How about you actually SHOW wtf you're talking about

Nacho_Z54d ago

Always annoying when articles do that.

I agree with them that the tv show was a bit on the clean side. They got loads right regarding set design etc but there's room for improvement.

gold_drake54d ago

i dont. it hurts my eyes. but im fairly ssensitive when it comes to that sort of stuff.

RyanWritesGood14d ago (Edited 14d ago )

Every Fallout seems to have their own color palate... New Vegas is basically brown, while 3 is green and gray. It's only 76 that has a robust color palate.

3 just isn't 3 without the green.

Microsoft had a good idea but fumbled it again.

Cacabunga63d ago (Edited 63d ago )

Project Spark idea was decent but they quickly gave up ..
LBP was wonderful

ApocalypseShadow63d ago

Microsoft in a nutshell. Always tried to poach Sony employees, games, 3rd party games and devices like the depth camera that was turned into Kinect but was running on PS2 before Xbox 360. Wouldn't be surprised they wanted LBP. Just like they worked behind the scenes pushing the MLB to bring Sony's baseball game to Xbox instead of making their own.

They didn't spend years trying to develop their own baseball game. They wanted Sony's game.

They're scum.

Zachmo18263d ago

Microsoft didn't force MLB on Xbox. MLB gave Sony 2 options either go multiplat or risk losing the license.

Rynxie62d ago

And why do you think MLB said that? I believe Ms approached MLB.

ApocalypseShadow62d ago (Edited 62d ago )

Totally ridiculous comment.

The only exclusivity Sony had was to their own creation of The Show. Microsoft could have paid the MLB for the license just like Sony did and made their own baseball game.

Microsoft instead, groomed MLB for years in trying to poach Sony's game and bring it to Xbox. They're worth 3 TRILLION dollars. You think that's not enough money to make their own baseball game? Don't be delusional.

Microsoft spun it like they always do and told the media that they had to trust Sony with their hardware. After they put Sony in that position of not having a choice. Either go multiplatform or stop making one of their successful games. That's a no win scenario.

And what did Microsoft do? They didn't try to sell the game to the Xbox community. They put it on game pass to hurt Sony. Pushing the idea of why buy games that are $70 when you can play them in their cheap service for $10. It was a dirty tactic.

You fell for the Kool aid drink Microsoft served you instead of spitting it out. Hope it tasted good because you were fooled by Phil and the gang.

Xbox executive Sara Bond has told Axios that Microsoft spent a number of years trying to get MLB The Show onto Xbox consoles. And when it finally succeeded in breaking off PlayStation’s long-held exclusivity, the company had to “trust” Sony with pre-release Xbox Series X/S consoles.

Bond revealed that MLB The Show “always came up” in conversations between Microsoft and the Major League Baseball organization. “We always said, ‘We love this game. It would be a huge opportunity to bring it to Xbox.'” she recalled. However, when Microsoft’s efforts materialized, it put the company in an awkward situation where it had to send in pre-release consoles to a rival company.

Take a nap, conspiracies are rotting your brain.

Lying to yourself is unbecoming.

Article link tells you all you need to know in Sarah Bond's own words.

Hereandthere62d ago

They were too cheap/inept/lazy to develop their own mlb game, so they port begged for years and bribed the mlb to make the show multiplatform. Like i said many times, xbox brought nothing to the table their 24 years, ZERO.

ApocalypseShadow61d ago

At least you and others get it. Note drank the Kool aid and asked for seconds thinking it was refreshing.

Most don't even know how it all played out but it's there in black and white for all to see. Microsoft brought it up for years until the MLB forced Sony's hand. It was a win win for Microsoft. Kill one reason to buy a PlayStation or kill the game by dropping it in a cheap service to kill Sony's sales numbers on PlayStation.
