Good Day System Wars!

vs

  • A New Year a New Tally.
  • I have compiled every AA+ game on Metacritic for the 360 and the PS3 that is NOT on the other system, doesn't matter if it's multiplat or exclusive, this is the fairest way to compare the 360 to the PS3 in terms of Quality Games.
  • Only Retail games.

Too much work, plus most people don't care. Imo should only be 85+, a lot of crappy games around that 80 mark like Buzz Quiz and Moto GP. If I had the patience I'd probably make an Arcade game list before delving below that 80 mark. But I really don't have the patience atm, just updating this was a drag.

Ahhhhhh, f there's anything the 360 does better than the PS3 then I don't want to know about it.
#12 Posted by XaosII (16565 posts) -

Interesting. Theres several PS3 and 360 "exclusives" that can be played without PS3 or a 360 on my PC.

#13 Posted by kuraimen (28078 posts) -
This is obvious even for other species like rodents.
#14 Posted by locopatho (20192 posts) -

Doesn't include XBLA games :lol:

Doesn't include A games :lol:

Doesn't include Guitar Hero II or Hitman Blood Money for 360 "Buh buh PS2 games count for PS3 :cry:" :lol:

Includes PS2 HD collections :lol:

To summarise: another lying Cow.

You also filter info lemming. If we talk about games that can be played on each console then I can play PS2 and PS1 games in the real world on my PS3 yet you guys have to factor them out to win. The fact is that the PS3 has more games and more quality games to play overall than the 360. That's a fact.

Most PS3's can't play PS2 games. :roll: Also, all of our games are current gen, and there is actually a legitimate reason. If we counted games from previous gens, the PC would dominate everything without a thought.
