I'm just wondering so I'll ask. With 45% is that enough to get them into the black for another quarter?

I would throw my PS3 under a bus to save my 360 - but I truly question the validity of this report. Having once been in a position of creating Executive Summary Reports for the largest Hospital chain in America - I know how numbers can be "bent" to not completely tell the truth while still being factual enough not to be a lie either.

Has to be right? 45% of all game industry money went to Xbox 360 products. That's crazy. If that's not a profit, they're terrible businessmen.

Microsoft is not made up of terrible businessmen... You can rip on the XBox brand, but Microsoft's financial saavvy is hard to f*ck with

funny how nobody notices that the xbox360 has a larger install base because it has been out longer.

And that most people who buy wiis don't buy games since most are seniors and little kids.

and anybody notice the wii does'nt have such a good lineup after all? It's really all about Mario and the same ol characters.

anybody notice the wii and ps3 have just been out one year?

But who cares right, I'm just a fanboy that is stating an opinion. Go ahead and bash me and brag.

you can try your best to spin this, but... this is total sales. hardware, software, accessories... in total, the 360 made up 45% of video game revenue. it's as simple as that. maybe wii owners don't buy games, and the ps3 has underachieved sales wise, but the 360 made up almost half of all video game revenue, compared to 55% from the ps2, ps3 and wii. pretty good, no matter what qualifiers you can throw out there.

Second sentence of the story says:
"The NPD numbers for 2007 are out. Companies will spin these numbers like tassles on a pole dancer. But, you can't cover up 45% of the market."

I guess fans and companies will try to spin that 45% isn't impressive.

xbox fans trully love their system... they do have a nice library of games right now... but I feel comparing some of the accessories is unfar because the ps3 comes with things like wifi and have the option to wire their controllers, so they dont have to pay for things like that

Xbox 360 owners are known for buying a sh*tload of games, it's just the way it is.

I'm not surprised...
"PS3 owners are known for buying a load of movies, it's just the way it is."

There, I fixed your comment "I dont kid I don't kid"

Speaking of sh!tty games how was that LAIR, that Gundam game and that lightgun game that scored a 1 everywhere? LOL to rub this sh!t in your face even harder, our sh!tty games sell better than you good ones LOL :)

LOL after the huge pwning of the PS3 in the NPD numbers, you should have turned off you inner troll today and stayed in bed :) have a nice (pS3rd) day.

Edit: that first Gundam game the one your to afraid to talk about. How is that whole playing games on your PS3? Oh thats right my bad, none of you "actualy" buy any games at all. Just look at NPD for proof :) oh that one had to hurt up the rear, sorry about that (HEHE) Uncharted, RFOM, R&C, COD4 and Oblivion are your higest rated games. LOL uh where are the rest of your games on that whole top list thing. Opps my badyou don't have any :) haha poor Droid it sure hasn't been your day for news, maybe you should have stayed in bed today.

Xbox360 owners to buy a lot of games... because Microsoft has managed to get a lot of great developers to support the platform with great games...
If there are great games, people will buy them... That explains why the Wii and PS3 software sales aren't so hot...

And all this does is secure the Xbox360 as "The Platform" for developers to put their games on...

The bottom line is $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ so if a developer is looking to turn the best profit, they know their in good hands on the Xbox 360

Marceles3288d ago (Edited 3288d ago )

lol @ gundam...you DO know that was on the 360 too right? And anyone can yell out a list of crappy games on any console ever made..."hey jason, how did that history channel game sell on the 360? oh and hour of victory...oh and vampire rain".
