Xbox Head of Gaming and Entertainment Stephen McGill has confirmed that the platform holder will be supporting the launch of Grand Theft Auto IV with a campaign on the same scale as Halo 3.
... if they would just come out with an Elite + GTA bundle. I'm interested in getting a 360, and in getting GTA4... but the only 360 I'm interested in, is the Elite, which is 370 EURO and comes without ANY games here in Holland. So when the 400 euro PS3 GTA bundle hits, I might pick that on up instead. I cant believe the Elite is still so expensive and without games here in Europe... :(
unlucky dude, here in the UK there are some sweet elite deals which come packaged with two games if you go into the shops
you life in holland ? you should look @ mediamarkt
... but that's only for Halo 3. When you buy any 360 PLUS Halo 3, you get GTA4 for FREE. For me, personally, that isnt an interesting deal, cause 1: I already own Halo 3. I bought it when an etailer messed up and offered halo 3 PLUS 13 months Xbox live for 60 euro. I figured I might as well take advantage of that, thus getting a free game... So for me the deal means nothing. For people who ARE interested in Halo 3 AND GTA4, its a nice deal. Nothing major though. 2: if I didnt have Halo yet, the deal still wouldnt be very appealing to me, as I dont really like Halo. I really wish they would just release a GTA4-Elite bundle.
I think MS messed up. Waiting 1 week before the game comes out is a bit too late. They should have started running ads in March to bring home the fact that it is coming out on 360. By this time....too many pre orders are out there.
I'm glad I pre-ordered mine on ps3..From what I've been reading and hearing I can't believe people would still consider buying a 360 with all it's problems.
if not, the open zone is that way! i would suggest you post your nonsense there mate!
Edit: never mind dan boy.. i just realised your a joke;)
You dont have to go to the open zone to discuss facts. Its documented, well know fact, XB has hardware problems. If you so touchy about it dont blame the people who discuss it, blame the people who made it so. EDIT Dan below me. I dont think he said anything about which version was better. I think he was saying if you had to buy a console to play this game, given the problem XB has had, he cant believe anyone would choose that. I understand whats he's saying but I'll go a step further. If I had Neither machine and had to buy one for this game, reliability would be an issue but I'd also say, do I want to buy an XB to play GTA, or for about the same price, with GT5P out, Haze an MGS4 just around the corner, should I get a PS3, that also plays BluRays? Easy decision for me. Anyway, since I already have both, I just get it for my favourite.
well done on making yourself look like an idiot fanboy. and i have to ask if your lookbehind on another profile????lol. i think you are personally! worst piece of gaming junk, how deluded and sad you are! anyway, i've been gaming since i had an atari vcs2600...which was around before you was even born! look it up on google! as i said, can you post them links lookbehind/lastdance. what name would you prefer to be known by???? bathyj: i'm not touchy, and am aware of the rrod problem. i love all consoles. i was just asking for the links to prove that the 360 version is alot more inferior to the ps3 version as lookbehind/lastdance was implying!
the open zone is -----> the xbox isnt the most stupid thing, it has live, bigger install base, and more games...dont get me wrong, i love my ps3, but right now it isnt up to par with the 360, that doesnt mean i am going to get one i will just have to wait for Sony to step it..the real reason for me not getting a 360 is because M$ does everything half-ass (Xbox, Windows, Zune, etc.) so i dont think i am ready for it yet. on topic: wtf is M$ doing, its a multi-platform game...dont they have a huge install base? why are they worried, i dont even think sony did AYN advertising, well its on the PS3 site, thats it, but every gaming site i see, it is has a 360 GTA4 banner talking about a live sweepstakes...oh well only two weeks left, im just getting ready to be amazed..
hahaha... Your hell cool! dan boy. Edit: Dan boy what are you smoking? your cant even read and your claiming to be older then me.
this is a link to show 360 problems http://www.gamespot.com/pag... and this is the original source but the news was removed but u can still check it from gamespot forum http://www.aeropause.com/ar...
i was asking for link that was highlighting the 360s gta problems compared to the ps3 version? not a rrod forum post. i think we have our wires crossed mate. thanks for the link anyway bud! lastdance/lookbehind: why did you edit your second post? after claiming that the 360 was the worst piece of gaming junk in history?
@Dan Lookbehind is not talking about GTA, he's just making a random reference to the RROD.
i'm glad i sold my ps3 for xbox360 so many games to choose from and comig out best move i've ever made
wow you want a medal or something? EDIT: what exactly are you people disagreeing with? idiots
You've made a wise choice my friend.
"crap game not even worth my valuable time downloading.back to my xbox 360" ummmm... you said this about the Lair demo....How would you dl the demo if you sold your ps3?
well done, you made the best choice ever.
sold your PS3 lololololololol u kids r Funny just tell the truth u buying this For PS3 cuz u scared your xbox will break playing it and u have no more allowance to Rent more xbox live and u going the smart way and playing for FREE with PSN.. Good choice, it nice to see Xbots waking up from the green dream.
@Pain Just STFU dude.
i told u. use your sony cum bubble wisley. u have only got one and that is so far up your ars that u cant see it install beyond http://www.n4g.com/MemberZo... why send that simon
damn! i wonder if that 50 mil goes along with this advertising campaign? they are throwing a lot of dough around if not....hope it works out for them.
i just hope it works out for me
nico gamerfeul!!! burger king GTA fries! 711 GTAIV 360 cups. suburban parents everywhere in shock!
M$ is spending money on GTA4, that makes it the best console ever? also..who cares? you act like this is an exclusive game
It's not exclusive, but $50 Million isn't just pocket change. Whether you want to admit it or not, DLC is a huge advantage for the 360.
oh great now im gonna have to wipe my ass with Nico's face (GTA branded toilet paper)
This style of ad campain helped push Halo 3 to record breaking sales numbers, it made a whopping $170 million in 24 hours, and that just in the US. Halo 3 sold more than any other media format, and is still on top. GTA4 will take that top spot from Halo 3 do to the extreem amount of hype and ads.
rockstar needs microsoft support to sell gta4 that's the only way they'll sell millions. also with DLC exclusives coming to xbox360 the wise decision would be to get xbox360 if you got any brains
I hope M$ is going to give games like Fable 2 the marketing they deserve. They're acting like GTA is their last throw of the dice. You would hope they haven't pinned all their hopes on a game that is not only on PS3 but also most people associate GTA with PS anyway. M$ need to stop just trying to buy their way into everything.
desperate times push into desperate measures... well let's wait until next month and we'll see how things will roll out
It's put up or shut up time for MS. No more console shortages, 50 mil banked on this one, large advertising budget to sell the game on their console, price cut in Europe. If they can't beat Sony in April/May (mostly May since GTA releases on 29th) then what cards are still in their hand? GeOW 2 when all the holidays titles are in full swing? Instead of DLC, if MS paid that 50 mil to have R* delay it on the PS3 for 3 months or so, then they might have more momentum. Not sure if R* would have done that for 50 mil though.
Yeah, we'll just have to wait and see. It does seem pretty desparate. I'll say this, this could turn out well for M$, who knows, but if the XB version doesn't out sell the PS version by a decent margin given the install base, or if XB consoles dont outsell PS3's then its gonna be very apparent what a failed attempt to buy 1st place this was and will be quite a slap in the face for M$ and big boost for Sony. Imagine if they sold even, and PS3 maintains its month to month hardware lead. Very embarrassing for M$.
I remember sony guys said that they was going to use a huge marketing campaing on gran thef auto aswell. It was in one of those gametrailers episode with that guy geof something
I seriously think that if GTA IV isn't successful enough for the 360 in pushing hardware, then Microsoft is going to cut bait and focus on the next console. However if it is successful, then they'll carry on trying to help 360 succeed. It's not the amount of software that is sold that counts though, that means nothing and is expected to sell alot. The hardware sales are what matters and if not enough 360's are sold, then yeah, i think Microsoft is going to accept their losses. Xbox 360 has been coming last or practically last in console sales month after month, even with its european price cut. So it's Even though Gears of War 2 is coming out, that type of game is a very traditional xbox type game and won't attract anyone new in particular to buy the console. So its down to GTAIV to save 360. Which is possibly why Microsoft are so desperate with the scale of this advertising.
It's already well documented that all previous losses in the xbox & live dept. were swallowed by the company and now the division is pumping out a very lucrative turnover. There's no reason to 'cut' the 360, it's far from it's end of life. Anyone considering that at any point ms will 'give up' is having some over dramatic thoughts. They're in this for the long haul - and all the best too them, i love what they've done for console gaming - and the 360 is only console #2 out of their 3 console strategy. 1) lose money, get a brand name, introduce live 2) learn from first one, increase live, don't forget some licensing issues and start turning a profit by putting good games and online experiences. 3) Build upon all previous lessons and deliver the fully functional front-room dominating movies/music/tv/gaming/social site/social world all-round media box. 4) more halo. this isn't some shirky endeavour, it's business, with massive monnehs and the people most likely to give up at the moment are Sony.
your response was going so well until the very last sentance, "the people most likely to give up at the moment are Sony." Explain? I cannot see how you came to that conclusion considering, PS3 has always been at a higher pricepoint then 360 yet outsold the 360 in 2007, even with the 360's best games. Plus the future for the ps3 is looking the brightest of the 3 consoles. Look at the games coming. Theres a reason why people say 2008 is Sony's year. Seen the month by month sales? PS3 ahead of the 360 every month. So yes, i'd like you to explain your reasoning. And when i said 'Microsoft will accept their losses', that was meaning losses as in, lossing the console war. Not financially. But speaking of financially, yes Microsoft's Xbox division has lost them billions of dollars. I have never seen an article of the Xbox division breaking even on those losses, but im willing to be proved wrong, as i might have missed that article. But apparently its 'well documented' so i guess you could provide a link. And you talk of Microsoft's 3 console strategy as if it were guarenteed for success and everything's according to plan. Wake up. Microsoft's actual intents were: 1)Try to make Xbox 1 win = FAIL 2)Try to make Xbox 360 win = FAILING but you were right with your 4th reason because the 4th reason is practically how the xbox has survived = More Halo Microsoft don't want to lose! They want to win! But they're not, so think whatever you want about that. I'll tell you one thing though, if microsoft don't crack the european and japanese markets, they will never win
your arrogance is very annoying. and you clearly no very little! HOW THE HELL DID MICROSOFT EXPECT TO BEAT SONY WITH THE FIRST XBOX?????? IT WAS RELEASED OVER A YEAR LATER, AND NOT A HOPE IN HELL OF CATCHING, LET ALONE BEATING IT! the first xbox was to get into the market, the second to get marketshare, and yeah i think ms think they can win next-gen....i dont agree with it personally! 25mil orignal xboxs for their first console was pretty good, considering the time it was released! i remember ken kutaragi claiming that the ps2 had sold over 40mil ps2s just after it was released! and although the ps3 will eventually overtake the 360, sony will never again dominate like they once did! get over it!!! but lets look at things shall we, yeah i know fanboys like yourself like the fact that the ps3 "outsells" the 360! but ffs, with "playstation" wrote on it, and brand recognition, and going by the previous two, it should be trouncing everything already! the fact that it outsells it by a small margin every month, is a testament to how much sony have fallen with the ps3, and how well ms have done with the 360! even in japan the ps3 is getting slaughtered by the wii. the 360 is dead there, but in europe and america combined, the ps3 is lucky if it's "outselling" the 360 by 100k. not bad considering the playstation brand, and it's been out alot longer! pull your head out of your arse mate, compared to the ps2, the ps3 is verging on failure! if hd-dvd had of won, the ps3 would've been in serious trouble! yeah, 2008 has some good exclusives for the ps3, but the 360 has some also! whether you like it or not. the ps3 is never ever gonna be the juggernaught that the ps1 and ps2 were, and wont even sell 60mil consoles! whilst ms and nintendo have already eaten into their market. and both will again when they release their new hardware late 2010.....whilst all you fanboys will be playing with your 10 year console lololololol how riduculous. if sony don't follow suit, then they will be left in the dust! and don't give me the "atleast sony support their old console" if you woke up, you would realise that by dividing their resources, and supporing the older machine, they're not able to throw everything behind the ps3 which should be their prime focus! perhaps if they did, you mite have things like xmb in games, private matches in games, a unified system and such.....you mite even have had gow, and the getaway this year aswell! continuing support of the old system hurts the new! arrogant little boy!
everyone make this gen, a "Win-Lost" argument on like every single strategy/game/move/. Not that you've change much about your preference but I know you can do better making a point. Instead of using the one game to win or loose it all argument. That's ridiculous. -I don't think MS has to Win and be the only console left standing, this Gen. (not what I want) Yes it does want to increase its "Market-Share/User-Base&a mp;q uot; and it's "gaming library" with "Good Exclusives", as well as the "Multi-Platform" games, and make "money" but in reality, I do not see anyone loosing this gen. -Everyone is bent on 1 game winning the console war or 1 game loosing it. No what's interesting, is the Strategies each console manufacture chooses to get ahead, which can be discussed) but in the end, as cliche as it may sound, we all win because of competition. There is always something I'm pisst about with each console. Well none are perfect. So much bitter resentment/hatred..fanboys have become delusional. On the Topic: This game will be the biggest advertised multi-platform this Gen, bar none. So it deserves all the credit, as well as the hard work from both sides trying to gain sales. MS is still the underdog, in the gaming industry, regardless. Multi-platform games never really make or break consoles, the Exclusives are more important to the Brand.
All things considered, Sony is doing quite well. Who would have thought a "600 dollar console with no games and crummy online" would have sold this well? Sony's strategy IS long term, and if you don't like it, fine, but I'd rather that than 4 year consoles. It may not win all the way, but Sony seems to have done everything... they won the format war, it looks like there are some incredible games coming, and the ps3 has ridiculous functionality and its console will be reliable.
"HOW THE HELL DID MICROSOFT EXPECT TO BEAT SONY WITH THE FIRST XBOX?????? IT WAS RELEASED OVER A YEAR LATER, AND NOT A HOPE IN HELL OF CATCHING, LET ALONE BEATING IT!" -PS3 seems to be catching up to Xbox 360 easy enough "the first xbox was to get into the market..." -So you're defending Microsoft for supporting your console for only 3 years? Weak "the second to get marketshare..." -So are Microsoft ever in this to, you know, win? "i know fanboys like yourself like the fact that the ps3 "outsells" the 360! but ffs, with "playstation" wrote on it, and brand recognition, and going by the previous two, it should be trouncing everything already!" -Obviously you have absolutely no knowledge of how the psone and ps2 started life "the fact that it outsells it by a small margin every month, is a testament to how much sony have fallen with the ps3" -No. The fact that it outsells 360 is a testament to it winning. May i remind you, every month ps3 outsells 360 by more, and more, and more. "even in japan the ps3 is getting slaughtered by the wii. the 360 is dead there" -Wii is slaughtering everything everywhere. And yes 360 is dead in Japan. "compared to the ps2, the ps3 is verging on failure!" -Again if you knew you're history, the ps3 saleswise is actually following the exact same course as the ps2 did. Jus look on VGchartz graphs for example, or whereever you want to look. If you comparing the ps3 at its birth to the ps2 8 years into its life, you are an idiot. Coincidently, on vgchartz graphs, Xbox 360 is taking the same sales line curvature as the original xbox. Hmm "2008 has some good exclusives for the ps3, but the 360 has some also!" -360 has some too! Really! One problem. PS3 has far more. And even more on 2009. "whether you like it or not. the ps3 is never ever gonna be the juggernaught that the ps1 and ps2 were, and wont even sell 60mil consoles!" -And thats going by what logic considering ps3 is following ps2's life course almost exactly? Your own fanboy instincts? "whilst all you fanboys will be playing with your 10 year console lololololol how riduculous" -That is how Sony has won 2 console wars. Microsoft has won 0. PS. the ps3 is a very powerful machine and more then capable of shining bright in 10 years "if sony don't follow suit, then they will be left in the dust!" -yes the future looks so bright for 360, doesn't it? I'll leave it at that, because you obviously don't know what you're talking about. Most important thing though: PS3 is outselling 360. For a long time now. And its outselling it by more and more, week by week. Wake up
do i really need to answer everything?? 3 years was'nt enough for the original i'll give you that! yeah microsoft are in this! again, what have said about your arrogance? obviously i've plenty of experience with the ps1 and ps2...just like all the other consoles i've owned before them! and the ps3 is'nt nowhere near selling like either of those! you know it, awsell as everyone else mate. why try and deny it? and is the fact that the ps3 "outselling" the 360 a testament to it winning?? it should already be infront!, even with japan, it's not doing enough to make up the numbers, and will be behind throughout 08, and in to 09 aswell! vgchartz are just estimates! the ps3 aint even close to the ps2, and never will be! and the ps3 has some good games this year! like nothing else has?? seriously! only mgs and gt are proven! i remember waiting for killzone on my ps2...lol what a load of crap that was! but i agree, the ps3 has the stronger line-up this year! next year, well, anyones guess! i'll have a ps3 long before 09, but i'll still be enjoying the three mmo's coming to the 360 in 09. and whatever else is worth buying! if the ps3 is following the exact same path as the ps2? then why's it not already up with the 360?? there was an article on here only a couple of weeks ago saying that the ps3 has taken far longer to get to a certain number in japan that the ps2 did....i cant be bothered to go through and find it though! the ps3 is more than capable of shining bright for 10 years lol. what with a gpu that's already outdated, and slightly less than the 360s, and a measerly 512mb of ram(the same as the 360s)? are you really sure about? or are you just thinking that because sony said it can, that it will???? the future aint bad for the 360, and will sell more than the original!do you honestly think that sony wont do anything if microsoft and nintendo ship new hardware in 2010? what sony will wait til 2016? lol they will be gone from the industry! the ps2 had already wrapped up last gen within 2 years of release! it did'nt need 5 or 10! the ps3 will not! the ps3 wont dominate, and will barely scrape a win from nintendo.....in around 2 years time they be on top! your arrogance and blind fanboy faith makes you blind to the truth! the ps3 is good with doubt, but it's not a light year ahead of the competition! "the ps3 is outselling it month after month" that's really all it boils down to with people like yourself is'nt it! with playstation wrote on it, and the previous success of the playstation consoles. it's not hard to figure out why is it? but, again even with japan, it's barely beating it by 100k a month, and is languishing about 8mil units behind! it wont be the front by this years end will it! i'll leave it at that! your obviously blinded by the thought of seeing ken kutaragi bent over with a greased anus! and blindly believing what sony have to say! i'll be enjoying a ps3 soon! but i wont become a blind fanboy, and will still enjoy my 360 and my wii!
danboy, you are sick in the head if you've been fantasizing about Kuturagi's butthole. So you think the ps3 should have overtaken the 360 by now? Even though 360 had a entire year headstart? And ps3 is significantly more expensive? Just because of the 'PlayStation' name? = Epic Confusion. Although, yes it is catching up. All signs point to that. And all signs point to ps3 beating xbox 360 in life time sales. I'd love you to show me how 360 will keep it's lead. So apparently ps3 has taken far longer to reach a 'certain number' of sales in Japan then ps2 did? Funny, i remember reading PS3 broke records in Europe because it sold faster then the ps2 did there at launch. And its still selling at a fast rate in europe. "obviously i've plenty of experience with the ps1 and ps2...just like all the other consoles i've owned before them! and the ps3 is'nt nowhere near selling like either of those! you know it, awsell as everyone else mate. why try and deny it?" -Well this is where i feel sorry for you because its like witnessing a mental patient screaming "The tooth fairy does exist! I saw it! I saw it!". Do you know how slow the psone sold at first? Far worse then ps2 and ps3. Psone in total hit 100 million units. PS2 likewise never sprinted out the gates, it sold relatively similar to how the ps3 has from launch. So where's your evidence? Besides the drivlings from a desperate mental patient? And i love how you spin the fact that ps3 is outselling 360 into a bad thing. No...ps3 is outselling 360. End of. Talk to me again when you see 360 widen its lead on ps3 As for that GPU stuff you said, yes i knew that. I guess you didn't know that the Cell chip is used to do some of the GPU's job too? Cell, its the reason why ps3 will still be fantastic in 10 years time. Really when you say blindly following sony, i'd shut up if i were you cos at least sony have proven themselves to win 2 console wars. I guess you listen to microsoft then? Who consoles last 4 years, are built like complete crap and they just general fail at everything they set out to do. But no you're wrong, only an idiot blindly follows something, i make educated decisions. And at least my choices have played out successfully. Thanks Sony. I realise you're a pretty dumb guy, none of this will probably get through the ass you have your head in, but happy gaming whatever system you own. And we'll see if your arguements pan out in the future. I doubt it.
This should boost sales signifigantly.
I dont know why people think that sony or microsoft is going away. Sony is not going no where, trust me they have alot life in them same with microsoft. SO far the console war has been interesting though. first it was microsoft dominating, but now the tide are turning, as sony ps3 build huge momentum due to the victory of blueray and plus they have the best line up out there in my opinion. Grant theft auto is nothing but one game out of many that are going to be release. Rockstart is working on two exclusive games for the ps3 one is l.a noire and the other is unknow yet. I am excited about what is to come next after gta. Maybe one of those games will be the next game like GTA.
Who gives a damn. You dont need to back up marketing for a game of this magnitude at all because it already has a tremendous fanbase and as we all know, especially in the gamers world, word of mouth is king. Not to mention, every GTA has had significant air time and commercialization throughout the years. I remember seeing those commercials for months even after the damn games came out. For GTA 3, vice city, and San Andreas. So I really dont see the point in this. Whoop-de-f'n-doo.
from any fanboys ways, just to be clear, you think M$ is the only reason this game will sell?, lets not forget GTA has an HUGE install base with the PS brand...but the game will be awesome, and it will sell...hell, it ran out of reservations in the UK
GTA was born on the playstation, thats the console every1 remembers playing it on, the controls of the game stay in your head and when i spoke 2 alot of me mates they ALL told me "im buyin a ps3 and gta when it cums out the controls r easy 2 remember im not bothered about this extra content business, ive never really completed all the other1s gta's there just fun games 2 play" NOT MY WORDS
May have started on PS but now 360 stole it, go on little boy.. make out PS3 is better etc.. should stop fooling yourself :(
hells m!inge GTA was born on p.c knob gobbler. think before u speak. install beyond http://www.n4g.com/MemberZo...
How does it feel droids knowing that 360 using the same techniques and look how well Halo 3 did :) 360 + GTAIV is going to win this little dumb war. 1 Game to rule them all, 1 game to own them, 1 game leaves ps3 in the dirt and in the darkness, kills the ps3droids yayz
Like I predicted. 1 week before launch Microsoft will unleash hell =)
You know I thought when I chose "gamer zone" I wouldn't be seeing these back and forth essays on sales numbers and console wars. Guess I was wrong. Anyway, Its smart for Microsoft to do this. They need to push GTAIV like its an Xbox only game.
at least it's not unsubstantiated fascist waffle.. not from me anyway :P
does MS think GTA is a Playstation game?........ Yes. they need to do a hell of alotr more advertising for this game than Sony needs to. all Sony needs is to advertise the GTA bundle PS3 and at the end add in " coming just 2 months from now MGS4" thats all SONY needs.
I said do really think Ms are not gonna have a massive ad campaign shouting from the roof tops about gta4 being on the 360 simultaneously and having extra dlc? Looks like i was right but i think any reasonably minded gamer knew this was inevitable. I wonder how the numbers will stack up in the first month? Either way i don't really care everyone gets to play the game on their system of choice Those that want the 10hr dlc will have to get the 360 version and those that are not bothered about it(most ps3 only owners on this site suprisingly enough) can get the ps3 version. Everybodys happy :) :) :?
Sony also has brand recognition unlike the 360 which can help in sales. I think MS just wants to get its foot in the door and build upon its original user base. Hell, MS, Sony and Nintendo will not be going anywhere. I find it funny that people will dismiss downloadable content, adverts etc. GTA IV could sell 360's for MS much like Halo 3 did, just think about it.
u jumped up little cunt never in a million years would u hav the balls 2 call me a "little boy" 2 my face ill break ya, besides where exactly did i say the ps3's better then the xbox I DIDNT i just stated wot pals of mine said so take your pathetic fanboy opinions and stick it in your arse [email protected]!!!
Threats over the Internet. Very mature.
Porr Micrsoft... and Xbox 360 is still going to FAIL
No true system seller in 2008 for MS so all their last hope is clinged to a multi platform title. Sorry MS, GTA4 on your console sucks. Best experience? Do you mean getting RROD while playing GTA4 with my friends?
People, let's go easy on the xbox fanboys. They don't have anything to hype up this year except gears 2 so they have to resort to hypying up a multiplatform game.
If you want to bring that up, then fine. But since you did, you can't ignore how the PS3 had NOTHING up to this point. Uncharted was good, but that was pretty much it.
I said this a few days ago ( MS is going to unleash it's advertising fury). After everything is said and done 360 version of GTA IV will leave the ps 3 versions behind in the dust , performance wise and sales wise - watch the ps3 fanboys go hysterical in the next few weeks.. ☺
MS going into fury mode? Lmao delusional xbot, MS is desperate at the moment. They are trying to stop GTA4 PS3 momentum of the last 3 weeks. And you talk like as if 360 is unleashing some sort of might weapon, when they have nothing left. 360 is as good as dead in the water. Its been outsold in the whole of 2007 and outsold even in the USA for the last three months. All thats left, is to see the total 360 userbase getting surpassed by the PS3 fanbase. And if we were to believe the analysts, that would be this year. Lmao @MS going "into fury mode" and leaving the PS3 behind. All I heard about for the last three months is how "we had shortagez".
@MrBii Your console only outsold the 360 in 2007 because of a little addition called blu-ray. Want proof? Look at the software sales of 2007. Hmm.
