[G4TV]Game Request Breakdown/PS3 turns profit - Page 3

The 360 was released on November 22, 2005
The PS3 was released on November 11, 2006

Thats almost 1 year had. So half the figure of the 360 which comes to 9,069,990.5 (.5 accounting for everytime one fails)

Now...that would mean that the PS3 has sold 1million (or 100,000...my head hurts, its late) more units than the 360 in the same time scale.

Dont turn this into a PS3 vs 360 thread...the PS3 is already ahead
Since when has 10>18?!?!?!

The PS3 isn't ahead. There's such a thing as diminishing returns, which is why people like you should stay away from analyzing statistics.

In order to analyze properly, you have to look at sales vs time using equal amounts of time ( like comparing 1st yr of PS3 sales vs 1st yr of Xbox sales. What you did is wrong on so many levels because ALL new products sell by the boatload when they're first introduced. New cds, new computers, new etc etc.

Now, on the otherhand, Sony IS finally ahead, with Blu-Ray having won.


btw, I'm poor and i own neither.

I own all 3 consoles. And to be completely honest my 360 gets the most game play buy far.

I'm a sucker for just about any online multi player game; I guess I just like playing with other people more than by my self. But for me to really get into a single player game it has to be really good. Like FF7, Oblivion, or MGS good before I will put time into playing it by my self.

Thus far all of the 360s single player games have been "OK" and its multiplayer games just rock the world.

The Wii IMHO has very few games worth playing, games like SMBB,SMG,TLOZTLP, Which makes me glad my parents got it for me for X-MAS and I my self did not have to pay for it.

The PS3 has some "Good" (good being a little better than OK) single player games. And most of its multiplayer games are ether under par or have yet to be released. I really hope that Resistance 2 or Metal gear online will be the Halo 3 for the Playstation world.

I do not think that the large game requests for the 360 means anything. Thats the game requests for that given time....It does not mean it will stay that way forever.

I think that PS3 is really pulling ahead due to the Blu-ray victory, not only that but its coming down in price and people looking to get into the next gen console gaming will most likely head for a PS3.

I say this because PS3 simply has more capabilities than your bog standard Xbox360 and is dropping in price and has HD capability out of the box. 360 unless it adopts Blu-ray has lost its HD capability in the long run.

Im no fanboy of either. I think there great in there own rights.

We are in a HD era and its only logical to go with PS3 if your looking for a HD media Hub/Gaming console.

If you do not care about HD and just want a box to play games on then the 360 is for you. However with the price margin closing the PS3 is looking nicer and nicer...especially with the game bundles.

Am I the only one who notices that the PS3 has the same titles (if not fewer, duh) the 360 does?

Sure it has exclusives like...Heavenly Sword

Meh, I mainly look at the Game Attachment rating. I mean, come on, 7 games? I didn't even own that many for the Nintendo 64, for the GameCube, for my original Xbox, or for my PC. I currently own 11 games for the 360.

Orange Box
Halo 3
Call of Duty 4
Rainbow 6 Vegas
Crackdown
Call of Duty 3
Army of Two
Assassins Creed
Mass Effect
Battlefield 2: Modern Combat (though it sucked)
Project Gothem Racing 2

I have NEVER owned that many games for any ONE console. Not even close. But for some reason, the 360 just has games that I want to buy, and then don't want to sell. It's really weird. My wallet seems mysteriously empty.
post #28 of 33
Yeah i dont think game requests mean to much. But on a larger scale who really cares which console has more games and which does this. If you like one buy it if you dont then dont. People have different preferences so its pointless to argue this stuff. They will both be around for a long time get used to it

I just need a wii now but i cant find one

Oh, yeah! Good luck with that. Took my family 3 months of going into target every sunday at 9 am. And now we barely play it. Pity.

" Xbox is better, i go on first and clean the hair "

" No, PS3 is better, i go on second and keep the hair silky and smooth "

" Oh really fool? "


... " Stop looking at me swan! "

Seriously i hate console wars. It doesnt matter which title per platform is 'better' or more highly requested. All the devs care about is profit margin. The winner in their eyes is the console that turns over the most cash.

The customer is always a winner, in that they buy a console they want, and thats that. you dont like a certain console or its games, dont buy it. No one will ever win the 'console war' ... coz realistically, each console is as good as the other, they are all pretty awesome, i mean, they all play games dont they? and most do a whole lot of other stuff. its personal taste. nothing more.
