*UPDATE: In response to this article, Microsoft's global marketing director, Albert Penello, offered the following response to GamePro.
We have to disagree with your conclusion that the trend of Xbox 360 versions of games being best is changing, especially when you look at the entire catalogue of multi-platform titles available. We also feel there were some key features of Xbox 360 games that deserved a little more play in your reviews. For multi-platform console owners, Achievements and Gamerscore have to be listed as an influencing factor to purchase the Xbox 360 version; their success and popularity is undeniable. The fact that other consoles have not implemented anything like this across every game should not be a reason to leave these features out of consideration. Plus, with Xbox 360 the capability for controller rumble comes standard, not as a future option and you get all the benefits of Xbox LIVE and its community of more than 10 million members.
