Well, according to Metacritic, the PS3 version is a whole 10% better than the 360 one!

Also, what do those numbers represent. Are those actual players in game? Or people who just own the game and happen to be online. Because if those are concurrent player counts - they're massive.

Yeah i've wondered why that is, on metacritic Resident Evil 6 has a 77 on the ps3 yet 66 on the 360, not that it matters because its a horrible game regardless of what platform its on.
I've also noticed that games like Bayonetta were only rated 3% less than the 360 counterpart yet that game was blasted across the net for being inferior on the PS3.

The PS3 version only has 27 reviews while the XBox 360 version has 59. The PS3 version has 18 positive and 9 negative reviews while the XBox version has 25 positive and 34 negative. It's averages. The user score for both are about the same, horrid!!!
Veneno  +   720d ago
Same thing happeneed with final fantasy 13. It was way more crap on360 and a big step better on PS3 but the ps3 version had more reviews so it averaged a lower overall score.

Resident Evil has always sold more on PlayStation so that doesn't really surprise me. It's the same way CoD will no doubt always have more people playing on Xbox 360. No surprises. The only time it's an exception is Battlefield 3. Sold less on PS3 but is way more popular on the system than it is on 360 in terms of active players.
Siren30  +   720d ago
www.bf3stats.com There is 2000 more people playing the 360 version than the ps3 right now
NoFanboyRequired  +   719d ago
Yeah, i dont know about that. I was going back and forth on the ps3 and 360 at my cousins house. The 360 version always had more populated servers.
crazysammy  +   720d ago
This is not surprising, and has nothing to do with a console being better. Its a trend. Look at games that originate with certain consoles/gamers and the sequels perform better on that system. Mass Effect is a great example. It will always be played more on Xbox instead of PS3 because it built a base there first. Metal Gear sales of the HD collection and Rising will trend to Sony because of the fanbase. Nothing sinister just another article trying to make gamers choose a side... Well, I choose the side of GOOD GAMES. OMG I have a PS3, 360, PC, 3DS, and a Vita.
DivineAssault  +   720d ago
I wish this game wasnt so action based.. I still wana play it because i beat all the others but im not into the whole gears of war approach they took.. I like finding secrets & solving puzzles.. Not finding keys to the next door one room away, & arcade style ammo drops
caseh  +   720d ago
You're totally right...because finding the armor key which gets you to the sword key, which then gets you to the shield key, which then allows you to get the helmet key about 6 hours later is so appealing right?

Thats what the earlier games basically consisted of, too many rose tinted spectacles around these days if you ask me. Oh wait, whats that..need a health herb...I saw one back that way, its only a 3 hour round trip yaaaaaaaay.
DivineAssault  +   720d ago
your wrong pal.. Finding those keys unlocked many doors u passed along the way & new enemies were hidden in the rooms making it fun & unpredictable.. Mindless blasting is so fun to youngsters these days.. No thought required, just button mashing.. Sure by todays standards the gameplay may feel ancient but it couldve evolved in a better manner... Games are too damn easy these days, maybe thats why u like it this way idk.. Try demon & dark souls, thats a challenge.. & a great one
crazysammy  +   720d ago
Its really the Zelda formula broken down. You get an item that takes you to a new area. You then find another item allowing you to get to a new area after that. The original RE set a bar of excellence and helped shape a lot of the great games we have today. I am not saying you have to like it, its ok if you don't, different strokes for different folks I always say. Just don't try to take away from how good it was.

@Divine Assault

Ahh I was raised on Ghosts 'n' Goblins and Bubble Bobble, Demons Souls wasn't all that bad. :)

As much as I dislike Capcom these days I also feel sorry for 'em to some extent on this. With RE5 they were slated for not having a better control scheme (straffing as an example) so they revamp the controls and people complain that its now a generic TPS.

I enjoyed RE5, missed RE4 and last RE I enjoyed prior to that was RE2 but I wouldn't want a remake of it. It can stay where it is, a happy memory of a game I enjoyed that probably, no definately wouldn't stand the test of time.

you know you're a 2010's gamer when all you do is blast shit instead of actually playing a survival Horror/Adventure game...
WiiUalpha  +   719d ago
you know you're a 2012 gamer when you refer to an action game as survival horror.
tigertron  +   720d ago
People tend to associate Resident Evil with Sony or Nintendo consoles. I know I do.

Amazing Game, Worth Every Penny
Pintheshadows  +   720d ago
That surprises me as all i've got when trying to play online is constant server time out messages.
Dropdeadll  +   720d ago
It's because the PS3 doesn't have that many good online games right now.
trouble_bubble  +   720d ago
Or maybe they like to actually -try- a variety of games and not just stare at their Halo 4 preorder receipts for months on end while the world passes them by?

The game is multiplatform anyways.
SilentNegotiator  +   720d ago
Or, fellas, it's a game with more history on Playstation, and thus is getting more attention on that platform.
Dropdeadll  +   719d ago
I don't even have an xbox..

Its nice to see console popularity on the PlayStation. Its a reminder to everyone that certain games are hotter and played more by people on the PlayStation version than the Xbox version.

Future games the metal Gear solid franchise and Devil May Cry possibly.

Looks like people on Xbox on enjoying the Mecromancer on Borderlands at the moment.
GraveLord  +   720d ago
Yet they give the Xbox 360 the DLC first.
Good job Capcom. Very smart.
MasterD919  +   720d ago
The Archives edition for PS3 had virtually every other RE game on top of RE6, did it not? That could be a factor too.
jghvhv  +   720d ago
Capcom gives XBox360 owners exclusive Dead Rising 2 DLC for supporting Dead Rising 1.Yet they give Playstation gamers nothing for making Resident Evil one of the most well known game series ever created.That's fair,Capcom/s

Makes sense. A bad game is popular on a bad system
iWishTifaWasReal  +   720d ago
how i read the title:

Resident Evil get 6 more online players on PS3.
jd666  +   720d ago
More PS3 owners in Japan
Picnic  +   719d ago
According to some websites, the PS3 has more users connected to the internet than the Xbox360. This should not be seen as surprising- the PS3 has in built internet capability and , most importantly, it is free to play online (apart from the usual broadband supplier costs of using the internet of course).

Despite this, the Xbox360 apparently has more users connected to the internet at any one time. Again, this should not be seen as surprising. The Xbox360 has sold a bit more and the previous Xbox started building up an online base. A high number of Xbox360 users have paid for XboxLive and, of course, anyone who pays for something can be expected to tend on average to want to use it more than someone who might not have even asked for it who was given it for free.

Then there's the matter that Resident Evil started off as a Playstation series so has a fanbase built up there and the controller may also have always felt like the right one to play a Resident Evil game with because you don't feel so much like you're just playing any old FPS game with it. Resident Evil 6 sold a lot more on the PS3 in Japan where that console sells more than the Xbox360.

So Japan helps but so does where the series started and the fact that PS3 online play is free - and even that the PS3 has www access. Despite the popularity of XboxLive, it may still be the case that more Xbox360 owners do not have internet access at all than PS3 owners because the cheapest Xbox360 for no frills offline gaming will be a bit cheaper than the cheapest PS3.
