2009 Is The Year For Playstation 3


(This article is an exact copy from gameinformer.com, all the credits go to the writer, Annette Gonzalez)

According to Metacritic’s Game Platform Power Rankings, the PlayStation 3 knocks the Xbox 360 from the top spot in 2009.

“Although Xbox 360 finished with the highest number of positively-reviewed titles (88 games receiving a Metascore of 75 or higher), and though Nintendo’s Wii had the largest total number of releases (a whopping 362, or almost one per day), the PS3 console showed the best overall game quality for the year. Among other factors, five of the 10 highest-scoring games in 2009 (for any platform) were PS3 titles, including the year’s top game: Uncharted 2: Among thieves."

Metacritic’s Power Rankings consider a number of factors including quality and quantity of titles released for each platform during 2009. According to the rankings, the Wii didn’t perform nearly as well this year: “The popular Wii platform had a poor year in terms of game quality, with critics liking just 28% of games released for the platform,” the site adds.

EEDAR analyst Jesse Divinch recently said games not considered for review has increased across all consoles from January to June 2009, with 37 percent of Wii releases not reviewed. Think that could’ve made a difference for the Wii?


In my opinion, PS3 truly deserves the first place this year. The coming of exclusive titles for PS3 like Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Killzone 2, God of War Collection, and Demon's Souls really make the giant console worth it. I never own Xbox 360, but the exclusive titles that it has don't really make me want to get it. Most of the exclusives are shooting genre (Gears of Wars, Halo 3 ODST), but there are also other exclusive besides shooting like Forza Motorsport 3. You can see from the Metacritic.com that PS3 games this year truly dominate. I love my PS3, and I will stick with it. Owh, I'm selling my Wii~

  1. Finally!

    overall, great games for everyone. although ps3 may have conquered this year, no matter who loses, the gamers wins.

  2. Yeah~ I'll admit that the bad comments and bad-mouthing of ps3 had made me think twice to get one :(

    Yup, it doesn't matter which console won. People can get either ps3 or 360 if they want, but talking craps about the consoles that they don't like is a serious problem. A true gamer will respect other gamers preference on consoles. Stop fanboyism

    I prefer ps3 over 360, but I never hate 360 :)

  3. applausable but as all know, the hardwares in both PS3 and Xbox360 is just too low to enjoy the real gaming experience.

    single ATi Radeon HD 5970 can pawn both of them, ridiculously.

    PC FTW dawgs!

New College Life In UKM

After intentionally abandoning my blog for around 6 weeks, I think it's about time I write something about what is currently happening in my life.

Since the last time I updated, I haven't done anything much. I met some of my friends, and mostly spent my time with my families and explaining to every single one of them about "why" am I not returning to the States. Most of the them accept the fact easily and told me to be strong, work hard in the future and don't make the same mistake (which usually just simplified to "don't play games too much")

Because of What Someone Said

So a few days ago, I visited Borders Bookstore in IOI City Mall to get a book for a friend of mine. Incidentally, it is also my favorite bookstore, due to its quite nice selection of books and its location from my house. Anyway, the book that I wanted to buy was The End of Average by Todd Rose. I already finished that book (I want to write about it as well later), so I recommended it to my friend and she asked me to buy one for her. I had an exam on the day after but as far as I'm concerned, reading is more important than any exams that I will most likely forgot in a few weeks.

Also, each time I visit a bookstore, I will always walk out the store with at least one book. So, besides the book that I intended to buy, I bought two other books because I found it interesting. I know, it is a truly 'good' idea to buy two books when you have an exam tomorrow. In this post, I want to talk about the reason why I picked up one of the books.

Being Different Is Lonely

From our ages, I know that I am different from most of my classmates. Naturally, most of them are three years younger than me, but that is not the problem. In fact, I had the most fun surrounded by them. They don't treat me differently just because I'm older. I think I am blessed with the fact that there are others who are older than the average (those who were born in 1993) in the batch.
I think I am not as matured as someone of my age should. But then again, there's no guideline on how matured a person should be or how you to be a mature person. Though my guidelines are basically these two: when you can prioritize and you can be responsible towards your actions. I don't know if I have these two qualities, but I know I am working towards it, slowly but surely.
Anyway, being older doesn't make me automatically different from the others. But there are certain things that make me feel.. different, and sometimes isolated. Like at this moment of writing, I am overwhelm…
