Channel Five’s Gadget Show Winter Special saw the team list this holiday season’s top party games. As expected, the list was dominated by Wii games, but the PlayStation 3 infiltrated the top.
On tonight’s Gadget Show, Suzi Perry and Jon Bentley played their way through this season’s best console party games, whittling them down to their top five.
Predictable Wii “wave-your-arms-about” games took up the majority, but surprisingly, two Sony titles topped the charts. Each of them are classic European PlayStation franchises that have again made their way to the PS3.
Buzz Quiz World comes in at first place, with Singstar Take That just behind in second place. Though the latter is only for those with a boy band obsession, the fact that these party franchises can still beat out the Nintendo Wii’s family games demonstrates the PS3′s wide demographic. Find the top five below.
