And the fact that some people probably bought the same game a few times because of scratched disks.

And what about LANs and stuff?

I guess you get the point now...



It's like if people would come and say "ZOMG STARCRAFT OUTSOLD *insert borderline shady recent game here* HOW SURPRISING"...

I agree.
The 360 was out long before the PS3, and hell of a lot cheaper. Halo 1 and 2 helped build the hype for part 3. The games mentioned for the PS3 hasn't been out nearly as long, especially God of War III.
A friend of mine who is a Halo fanatic has bought Halo 3 SIX times because his 360 rips it apart every few months. When I buy a PS3 game, I check if there is a used one. Since the disc go through "diamond layering" crap, they are almost impossible to scratch, and they work fine even if they are. So I buy used PS3 games if I can. So those sales statistics are BS.

Note that I used the word "Wasn't" to start the sentence suggesting (again, note suggesting) that Halo3 was out before the PS3. The PS2 completely lacked online gaming, and the only thing before that was the original Xbox with Halo2.

For that matter, I dont really care if I was right or not, as I only wanted to state that Halo3 was out around before the PS3 and being the only "good" multiplayer game available right now - with a LOT of hype surrounding the story and gameplay.

I guess you look yourself like a moron for bashing now - especially considering at least 2 people corrected me between my first post and your post. No need to hate, friendly conversation, but I guess if you'Re one of those little fanboys who likes to shout crap at the Xbox Live mics while playing a game, then go ahead and bash/flame more, it'll be useless.

Halo 1 = Amazing single and multiplayer. one of the best FPS of all time imo.
Halo 2 &3 = Not so good. Bungie sold out to the masses.

I bought halo 3 a couple of years ago and played it off and on while I was still in college, however, even though I can afford it now that I have a real job I am not interested in paying out the arse for "map packs" and "addons" so I don't even consider putting it in the system. Screw you DLC inventors.
