Edge-online.com recently conducted a survey on the quality of games on the PS3, 360 and the Wii, and to everyones surprise the shovel-ware of the Wii scored lower than the PS3, and 360. According to the survey 4% of Wii games, 17% of PS3 games, and 13% of 360 games scored 85 or higher.
From 2006 through 2008, 17 percent, or 36 games for PS3 have scored 85 percent or higher. Sixty-five games, or 30 percent of PS3’s games, have scored 65 percent or below.
From the Wii’s launch through 2008, four percent of Wii games, or 12 games, have rated over 85 percent on average. Fifty-four percent of Wii games, or 155 titles, have rated below 65 percent.
From 2005 through 2008, 13 percent, or 48 of the games on the Xbox 360 have received an aggregated review score of 85 or higher; 38 percent of games have received a 65 or lower.
You can interpret as you wish, but what these statistics tell me is that the Wii, and 360 are more popular, and therefor have more developers creating a lot more shovel-ware. And the PS3 has fewer developers, which results in a better ratio of good games to crap games, not necessarily more good games, just less bad games. What do these results tell you?
