PSXE Poll Update: MGS4 Is The Choice Of PlayStation 3 Owners
Well, Killzone 2 topped Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots to take home the "Best Graphics" award according to our readers, but MGS4 emerged victorious in this past week's poll.
Obviously, "Best Graphics" doesn't necessarily translate to "Personal Favorite," because when we asked you what your favorite PlayStation 3 exclusive was, the majority of you went with Kojima's masterpiece. KZ2 didn't really have a chance, and what's interesting about the results is that Uncharted: Drake's Fortune actually gave Guerilla's shooter a run for its money. This must mean that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is gonna have tons of anticipatory fans out there as we get closer to its release later this year, and after laying eyes on it, we don't blame you. As for MGS4, we'd certainly have to agree; thus far, it remains our favorite PS3 exclusive as well and in fact, it's our favorite title of the entire generation - on any platform - to date. Who else is psyched to learn about Kojima's next project, which may or may not feature Raiden as the lead character...?
Anyway, we move on to this week's poll, which is a nod to the rumor that the PS2 will drop to $99 some time soon. The topic of backwards compatibility concerning the PS3 is always a hot one, so the question is simple: how highly do you value b/c as a feature in the PS3? Is it absolutely necessary? Or do you not care at all? It'll be interesting to see the results, as there seems to be a very vocal group that most definitely wants Sony to re-implement the missing feature. Vote now!
