I am often surprised, perhaps even stunned, by the number of times I have read less favorable reviews and comments for the PS3 version of multi-platform games. I don't recall reading anything about a significant hardware disparity between the two, in fact with the PS3 games being delivered on Blue-Ray discs, I would think there's always potential for the PS3 version to have a slight advantage for that fact alone.
There are toss-ups of course, where either version are practically identical, but far more often than not, I find myself choosing the Xbox 360 version over the PS3 version based on a quick scan of reviews. This is starting to create a noticeable lop-sidedness in my gaming library that I find somewhat puzzling, perhaps even disappointing.
I'm perfectly happy with the exclusive content for the PS3 and that alone justifies its purchase, but I often wish I could do better than having a library of exclusives. Since I don't play games online, any advantages in multiplayer gaming are not significant for me. I don't download content either, so that doesn't factor into my buying decisions, other than the fact that I would prefer a Game of the Year edition that has downloadable content actually on the disc instead of simply including vouchers for downloadable content.
Am I missing something? Am I reading reviews incorrectly? Other than Alone in the Dark: Inferno, are there any multi-platform games where the PS3 release is the more desirable version?
It doesn't hurt to ask and I figure other people might be finding themselves in the same quandary I'm in.
