Poll: Console of the Year 2013 (44 votes)

Nintendo 3DS 27%
PS Vita 2%
Playstation 3 48%
Playstation 4 7%
Xbox One 5%
Nintendo Wii-U 11%

Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii excluded due to lack of exclusives.

PS4 and Xbone are new consoles but had weak launches.

Mario 3D World aside, Wii U was a total drought.

PS Vita still lacks a killer app, LMAO.

3DS takes the prize for Link Between Worlds and Fire Emblem Awakening. Pokemon, Animal Crossing and some Luigi crap are a plus well.

PS3 scored big-time with The Last of Us, but sorry Sony.

As far as 2013 PS3 hands down! The Last of Us, God of War, Ni No Kuni. Might miss couple games, but 2013 is impressive for PS3!

3DS.

PS3 no contest.

LOL at people saying the PS3 is System of the Year.

3DS blew the competition out of the water and you all know it.

Although the Topic does say CONSOLE so I guess you're right on that.

3DS has to win it I think. PS3 just embarrassed the other consoles but a good amount of those AA/AAAEs don't float my boat.

A Nintendo system with all sequeled out franchises and not a single original game? Im not surprised.

3DS and PS3 have had such amazing years... it's so hard to choose between the two. For me, I guess I had to choose what experiences I better had on which platform this year; the PS3.

Now, don't me wrong, the 3DS games have been nothing short of incredible. But i've just had more 'fresh' experiences on the PS3, and that is before I even talk about TLoU, which was a game changer for me.

PS3 for sure. Ni No Kuni, God Of War, Beyond Two Souls, Gran Turismo 6, Puppeteer, and of course the Last Of Us for exclusives. Then the usual tons of awesome multiplats. GTAV, Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, and more. What a year.

3DS would be runner up.

3DS absolutely dominated this year, and you know it. Unfortunately, due to cows running rampant on this board, I don't actually expect it to win, which is a shame.

#20 Edited by Pikminmaniac (8700 posts) -

Personally: Wii U

looking at it as objectively as I can: 3DS

That's if we're only counting exclusives, otherwise I'd put PS3 in the second category with the addition of all its multiplats.

It depends. I have both 3DS and PS3 and PS3 has been more appealing to me this year. Ni no kuni , The last of Us, puppeteer, the good multiplats, Beyond two souls ( yes, i like those types of games )

But i guess people did really love that watered down Fire Emblem so much, and the worst pokemon game made in recent years.
