90%+
360 - 4

85%+
360 - 11
PS3 - 11

80%+
360 - 22
PS3 - 19


LBP really shouldn't count as a good exclusive anymore. I know in my case and many others, the "moderated" levels completely killed it for me. MGS4 is a great game, but the multiplayer is stupid and the game has virtually no replay value once you beat it (and unlock the invis camo). Not to mention that nearly every multi-plat game that has come out has run fine on the 360, meanwhile games like The Orange Box and Assassin's Creed run poorly on the ps3.

and if you've got a decent computer, the 360 falls way, way behind. Live is a big plus for 360, but the games argument just falls flat, especially when the PS3 comes bundled with the best game ever made and Killzone 2.


This computer argument is complete horseshit. That's like me saying "if your dad has a blu-ray player, you don't even need a ps3 for blu-rays n e moar!!!"

And after having played with a ps2/3 for a few years and 360 for a few years, the controller also feels a lot more natural. I dunno, I'd rather The Clown Prince (seriously wtf?) not have bothered asking which system was best if he wasn't even going to listen to what anyone fucking said. There's a reason that the ps3 comes bundled with two of its best games: it fucking sucks. It's as simple as that. And I own one of the fucking things.

And I don't think Halo should count as a good exclusive, but that's hardly being objective. We could argue that shit all day long.

Yeah, the Orange Box thing kind of sucks, but Assassin's Creed is fucking terrible, so nothing lost there.

If you have a blu-ray player already, then the blu-ray function on the PS3 offers little to no value to you. If you have a good computer, then many of the 360 exclusives offer no value to you. It's not horseshit at all.

Did I say that? If it's a game that I'm questionable about, I'll definitely look at the achievements.

determining whether a game is playable or not by it's achievements is pretty fucking retarded.

How so? Achievements add to the fun factor in a game for me.

The only good part about achievements is the comedic value when one randomly pops up after a catastrophic fuck-up, like calling in an airstrike on your own head in Mercenaries or giving your QB a brain injury in Madden or something.

This list is flawed. Any list that doesn't have 50% bad for the Wii must be flawed.

The PS3 had a better year than the 360 in terms of games. There's no denying that. I still think the 360 has better games overall, better online, and a better controller than the PS3.
