I used to think ign's reviews were pretty accurate with my opinion, but recently i must agree that the scores are pretty low. Dont know why..

Probably Nintendo advertisers paid them to be extremely bias on the Vita and be all gaga over the 3DS and Wii U and also paid for the PlayStation team on IGN to be hush hush on it.

Doubtful, IGN is the site that used to post "The PSV is set to succeed" and a bunch of other articles hyping the system up. I really think they are just deficients~.

For instance Halo 4 is not even out and they have alraedy rated it a 9.8... Really? Rating a game so high that isn't even released yet, that is IGN's mentality for you.

 

 

 


I think I already clarified this point in another thread. It's easy for IGN to rate a game that's not out yet. They get games in advance to play and rate. Several sites have this ability.

Yeah, to be honest that's more about the companies. They send games to reviewers to get people hyped up for a game. Atlus is doing that with Persona 4: The Golden, that's how a few sites have already graded the game even though it won't be out for two more weeks~.

Ign rated Virtues Last Reward very high ( 9.5 )  This has got me thinking that IGN has knowledge of the next installment of this game going to Nintendo. This way they can say, " See we rated a Vita game high"  When they know it's going to Nintendo, so by rating it high now it just makes more people interested for the next game going to Nintendo.  Nintendo wins and IGN will still get their cash reward.  Conspiracy theory.....I THINK NOT!
