Forums - Sony Discussion - Why is that Metacritic scores more reviews for Sony games than Multiplat?

I don't get it, if I look @ some sony games they have more reviews accounted for than multi platform games, and some are under scored...

COD6 67 reviews
KZ2  91 reviews

GTA4 64 reviews
Uncharted 2 104 reviews

Bioshock 51 reviews
inFamous 98 reviews

Rockband 35 reviews
Singstar 48 reviews

It could be that Metacritic is worse at picking out platforms for multi-format releases. I know that some multiformat mags and sites say 'Format: X360 (Version Tested),  PS3, Wii (or whatever). In those circumstances metacritic may only pick up the first console in the list, for example, leading to fewer reviews for PS3 multiplats compared to exclusives.

Because the all powerfull C3ll generates the other extra reviews it all its wisdom and brilliance :p

on a serious note, i think Wiped is correctomundo :)

Whoever said life to be like a box of chocolates clearly didn't know what he was talking about. 

Life is more like a game of bumper cars. At every turn there is a possibility you will get screwed.

It's because Playstation was a huge brand in past generations which caused many fan-sites to pop-up who are mostly interested in reviewing PS3-exclusives.

More sites reviewed the 360 version of the game, and did not bother to review/score a second version that was most likely identical.

Everyone wants to play Ps3 exclusives because they are awesome. And some want to gets hits from PS3 fans when they mislead with a low review score.

WiiStation360 explains it perfectly, with color coding at that lol.

  

Top Games for Vita: Gravity Rush, Soul Sacrifice, Persona 4 Golden, Guacamelee, Y's:Memories of Celceta, SuperStardust Delta

Top Vita Wishlist: Soul Sacrifice Delta, Oreshika:Tainted Bloodlines, Freedom Wars, Child of Light

PSN:Forevercloud (looking for Soul Sacrifice Partners!!!)

Because they are biased reviewers who want to downplay Sony's games. Of course, they do often give in to the awesomeness of their games.



J/K, of course.

Rockstar: Announce Bully 2 already and make gamers proud!

Kojima: Come out with Project S already!

I always found metacritic's way of gathering reviews somewhat flaw. Id thought they would just have a list of sites that they would go and grab the review from but apparently thats not the cas, as they seem to grab it from anywhere

"In video game terms, RPGs are games that involve a form of separate battles taking place with a specialized battle system and the use of a system that increases your power through a form of points.

Sure, what you say is the definition, but the connotation of RPGs is what they are in video games." - dtewi
