Playstation 3 Tops Out Metacritic's Annual Game Platform Power Rankings
Posted by Sammy Barker
Sony's Playstation 3 has beaten out all competition to take Metacritics first annual "Game Platform Power Rankings"
The chart uses Metacritic's powerful critic aggregating tool to find the platform with the strongest games lineup over the past 12 months.
With five of the top ten over all games, Playstation 3 games managed a median Metascore of 72.0%, with just 7% of games on the platform scoring "badly." For comparison, the XBOX 360 (in third-place behind the PC) managed a median Metascore of 70.0, with 11% of those games scoring badly.
It's worth noting that over the period of the last 12 months, the XBOX 360 had 51 more games released than the PS3, however only 7 of them scored "Great", while 10 of the Playstation 3's games achieved the accolade.
In last place was the Wii, with a median Metascore of just 69.0% and just one "Great" title released.
Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was Metacritics highest rated game of the year, with the PS3 version of Modern Warfare 2 and Street Fighter IV all occupying the top spots.
