PS3 vs Xbox 360: Exclusives
Which console has the better quality exclusives? In other words, if a new PS3 exclusive is announced and a new Xbox 360 exclusive is annouced, which one gets 1. the most hype and preorders and 2. the better review scores and reception?
Let's look at two third person shooters created this gen, Gears of War and Uncharted.
The first Gears of War metacrtic score is 94 out of 100 and user score is 8.4.
The first Uncharted metacritic score is 88 out of 100 and user score is 8.6.
Gears of War wins in regard to overall reviews and reception. It probably wins in the preorder and hype category as well.
Let's look at two later gen exclusives, Heavy Rain and Alan Wake.
Heavy Rain metacrtic score is 87 out of 100 and 6.9 user score.
Alan Wake metacritic score is 83 out of 100 and a 7.9 user score.
Alan Wake takes the pie in regards to reviews.
I know this way of evaluating has holes in it. I should have included the awards won by the new IPs and preorder and hype numbers.
I would have made this thread better, but I don't have the time right now. I already typed all this up so I will post it.
What are your thoughts? How would YOU come up with a conclusion which console has the better exclusives? Which one do you think has the better exclusives?
