The Japanese publication made this conclusion by crunching the scores on the 516 games it reviewed last year and seeing how many titles scored at least a "Silver" award by getting 30 out of 40 possible points. The resulting numbers speak for themselves, at least if you're a Sony fan -- a whopping 77 out of 103 PS3 games in 2010 netted a Famitsu award, nearly three-quarters of the entire release lineup. Two-thirds of Xbox 360 releases in Japan (65 out of 97) got awards, and 27 out of 43 Wii games scored at least 30/40, a ratio of 62.8%.
As you'd figure, the percentages weren't quite so hot for the portable systems. 58 out of 117 Nintendo DS games (just under half) got rewarded by Famitsu this year, and the numbers were even worse for the PSP, with only 56 out of 130 titles (43.1%) making the cut. The PlayStation 2 fared worst of all, with only 6 out of 26 releases (20.1%) making the grade.
In case you're interested, the 289 games that earned Famitsu awards in 2010 would cost you a grand total of 1,824,684 yen (about $22,136) if you purchased them all at list price. If you stacked all the boxes on top of each other, you'd have an unstable tower of plastic reaching over 160 feet into the air. Also, if you did either of these things, chances are good you would have trouble retaining a girlfriend.
