Sony has claimed that PS3 games are rated higher on average than their 360 counterparts on Metacritic.
Like Mafia 2? @rroded nah im sticking with MS i still have some confidence in them lol only new things we heard from MS at GS 2010 was Avatar 2.0 and kinect support for that harry potter game (which sounds pretty cool actually).
like uncharted 2 say ya buying a ps3 soon ingi? let me know when you get one n ill add ya on psn XD
lol have fun playing PSN with a complete fanboy douchebag like ingiomar. I know I won't be joining you. @below Actually, they're obsessed with having the best games. Because everyone knows, best games = better gaming. Have fun spinning your numbers like a fanboy while Sony blazes past you in sales and quality.
... I think this will be their downfall.
Sony was once the King of the Consoles until the stupid Wii came along and made billions. Sony is still number one in my heart though.
meh fanbois are mostly gamers tho a few are jus trolls ingi is def a gamer so heres hoping he can afford to jump out n play beyond XD theres only a few trolls here i wouldnt play with but the most of the ms fans are def ok :D
grasping on stra... er grasses much ino?
Its ok if Sony says things like this, but if Greenburg said it... whoa boy, watch out.
when green says something its outta his a$$ sony is using visual proof
Sony just being honest. thier words are more value.
When you look at metacritic scores, the majority of multiplatform releases score the same as or better on the PS3. This has been the case for the past year. 2007 - games scored better on the 360, 2008 it was about tied. 2009 and on critics have been scoring the PS3 versions higher. There was an article about this very topic some time ago on SMGamers. Metacritic: 2009 Multiplat games better on the PS3 http://www.smgamers.com/?p=...
Not having a good day? Xbox: Avatar and Harry Potter PS3: Medal of Honor, MoH Front Line, Crysis 2, Mass Effect 2 w/DLC, KZ3 & jetpacks in MP lol,Mortal Kombat in 3D. Core gamers your choice is clear.
Microsoft doesn't need to say anything at the moment. Hell, they didn't even have to go. They have Halo Reach, Gears, and Windows Phone 7 with XBL. Microsoft is good for the generation. It's the next gen when they may be hurting.
You do realize that apart for Killzone, those games are multiplat, right?
@ uv777bk most are multi plats but these announcements are for Sony press conference. They got special DLC or other stuff. He also forgot Resistence 3 & Virtua Tennis has Move support. Sony is really showing us some dedication to bringing their fans some good experience. Steam on PS3 FTW. I'm really excited about PS Move, even "if" it might not sell well(I think it'll sell good) I know Sony is showing a lot of Core/Casual games that's looking great.
If Nintendo or MS named off 3rd party games they would get tons of hate. Sony does it and its all good.
I kinda feel bad for fanboys, mainly because I have a 360 and a PS3. People are missing out on games that they're too blind to even give a chance.
Can`t argue with factual evidence. @ Disagrees, nope, still can`t argue with factual evidence.
It is just ratings. Game reviews are not harsh enough on games. A rating of a 7 for a game should not be bad it should be great. The meaning of 10/10 or 100/100 has lost all meaning. If sony keeps talking like that then all xbox fanboys might rate halo reach and fable 3 100 just so that 77 percent reaches to 81 or 80 percent.
Everyone has an opinion, but you cannot dispute facts. Which is why Sony Computer Entertainment has done a marvelous job at delivering nothing but the best gaming content that money can buy. Dark Sniper can personally assure you that anything that you experience on PlayStation®3 is ten times more superior than anything you play on Xbox 360, including multiplatform titles. Developers have learned how to harness the Cell Processor and the RSX graphics synthesizer to fully complete a vision that was once thought of as a pipe dream. Which is why Xbox 360 is the pipe dreamer's console as these developers have switched their primary source of development over to PlayStation®3. It's very clear that only PS3 gives you the bang for your buck and journalists across the world obliges to this statement. If you want greatness, it's painstakingly obvious that it's time to hop aboard and jump into PlayStation® Nation. If you want mediocrity at best, continue playing Xbox 360. $niper
I do enjoy my mediocre 360, and to say Gears of War and Left 4 Dead are outgunned by anything on a PS3 is an idiotic fanboy comment. Also, cell processors and graphics synthesizers don't make a game; story does. I'll take old school ff7 and maximum carnage over most 360 and PS3 games any day of the week.
lol @ you taking DarkSniper seriously.
I'm just saying.. but.. You brought up Gears and L4D to back up your 'story makes a game' claim? Really now? But yeah, I did enjoy gaming in the ps2/n64/psx days alot more.. Yay 4 RPGs :D
"I'll take old school ff7 and maximum carnage over most 360 and PS3 games any day of the week. " $niper
"anything that you experience on PlayStation®3 is ten times more superior than anything you play on Xbox 360, including multiplatform titles." Friendly advice, don't read up on the PS3 Mafia II debacle and how "superior" it is compared to the other versions. As a 360/PS3/PC gamer, I honestly feel sorry for people like you. You have to keep convincing yourselves that there are only "mediocre" games on the 360. Who knows, maybe if you repeat it enough it will become true, right? Meanwhile, gamers who have a clue will continue to enjoy great games no matter the platform. And that includes me.
I can claim a bunch of things as well. Does metacritic have a spreadsheet for this?
Yes they do. PS3 exclusives are higher rated than Xbox 360 exclusives. You can even add the PC/360 exclusives if you so choose. But remove Mass Effect 2.
I was wondering why it looked different. Is there actually a comparison chart there that averages every exclusive from each system?
Multi games are all better on 360 Sony should said that aswell! Plus Talking Exclusives and Metacritic : Gears of War 1 - 94 Gears of War 2 - 93 Halo 3 - 94 Forza 2 - 90 Forza 3 - 92 Fable 2 - 89 Mass Effect - 91 Alan Wake - 83 Conviction - 85 Not Exclusives anymore : BioShock - 96 Mass Effect 2 - 96 On Ps3 : LBP and UnCharted 2 at 95 and 95. MGS4 at 94! God of War 3 and 92 , Heavy Rain at 87 , Killzone 2 at 91 , Infamous at 84 (Same as the 1st CrackDown)... Infamous 2 loos awesome! i guess its a matter of tastes both Consoles have awesome games!
Uncharted 2 actually has a 96 on metacritic, where as Infamous has an 85. Crackdown 1 on the other hand actually had an 83, but whatever. Honestly minor differences in scores like that on metacritic do not really matter. I mean, I personally think Mass Effect 1 is a better game than Mass Effect 2, despite it's lower score.
Never really paid much attention to Metacritic and I'm not sure who does besides apparently Sony. If they actually gave LBP 95 and Gears 1 94, I never will pay much attention to them.
@Halo_Reach You couldn't even read it right, lol. Why'd you conveniently lower the averages on Uncharted 2 and inFamous but magically raise the average on Crackdown? Take off the fanboy goggles.
Considering Metacritic takes into account review sources that exclusively review one companies console's games (Nintendo Power, Xbox Mag etc.) you have review inputs that are only applied to certain editions of particular games.
When Microsoft confirms that sony has better games i will click the link... Until then its just press release bullshit.
Considering 360 has a larger library, well duh, on average they're going to put out more crap. Its really just splitting hairs here over who gave out what b.s. score.
I don't really care about metacritic sometimes since it's about opinion, and theirs is not always in line with mine. As long as Sony keeps coming out with great exclusives and good multi plats I'm happy. So many exclusives out now and in the future... -Demon Souls, Uncharted I-III, Resistence 1-3, Killzone 2 & 3, MGS 4, Braid, Valkria Chronicles, God of War III, LBP 1 & 2, GT 5, Socom 4, Mod Nation Racers, MAG, Heavy Rain, The Last Gaurdian, Heavenly Sword, Dragons Lair, Rachet and Clank, MLB the Show, Infamous 1 & 2, FF XIII Versus, FF XIV, and PS Move games and games w/ Move support(Dead Space 2/Extraction, MAG, Heroes on The Move, Socom 4, KZ3, LBP 2, Heavy Rain, RE5, NBA 2k11, PGA Tour, DDR, Singstar etc...) Think there's more games, and most these exclusives got a good metacritic score. If you played half of these exclusives and also play some of the great multi-plats on PS3 then you play too much video games haha. Portal 2, L4D, Steam and Mass Effect 2 also coming to PS3 to sweeten the deal. Sony has really showed some love for their fanbase lately.
"PS3 games better rated than 360's - Sony" Not really. Just have to compare games on Metacritic. X360 has more games rated 90+ then PS3 or Wii. X360 has more games rated 80+ then PS3 or Wii. It comes out as a matter of taste. What games do you like. PS3 fanboys will say they prefer PS3 games. X360 fanboys will say they prefer X360 games. Wii fanboys will say they prefer Wii games.
This is a pure fact. and LMAO at those comparing x360 games with ps3 titles.
that much, i follow gamerankings more!
I have to say congrats to Europe to make PS3 sold that many units. More great games coming along the way. Enjoy your PS3 over their EUROPE! Keep those sales climbing!
