oh how money can change people....

Dannagar3391d ago

Business is about money and always will be.

Martini3391d ago

Must not be that faulty anymore as 360 has been outselling the PS 3 lately ;)

AAACE53391d ago

It's just so funny that fanboys think that the people creating games aren't in it for the money...

It's true that they want to create a great experience for gamers to enjoy and remember, but in the end... it's about money! They want to make money and alot of it!

Come on people... please don't live up to the cliche' that gamers are stupid! Be aware of how things work. It is a business, just like anything else. Just like McDonalds, Wal-mart, etc.

PS3 has sold 2.5m consoles in Japan

vs just 600k x360s in 3 years

x360 sales have dropped back below ps3 next week

where will x360 be when Samurai 3/yaluza 3/MUSOU 2 and WKS are launched on PS3 this december

Oh wait x360 is a dead console in both Japan and europe. NA to go

in Japan x360 costs 1/4 as a ps3

BTW ingame GAYLO3 RECON shot. looks like dogsh888

Hey nasim that picture of Halo 3 multiplayer looks really good. I really like Ghost Town. That map has been out for around 6 months. Try and get some more knowledge about what you are saying. The XBOX is dead in Europe? that weird, it sounds like it is outselling the ps3 in almost every region of Europe. Try not to slit your wrists when you see the NPDs this month, it's going to be a very sad day for you. I won't even open up that Japan scar for you. Dead...really? Try again.

*Edit* Oh yeah...Fufotrufo, There is some positive feedback from me. Keep up the good fight

Its also the best platform for delaying Tekken

Dannagar3391d ago (Edited 3391d ago )

Well, GTAIV was delayed due to the PS3, so it's not like that crap hasn't happen to 360 owners. However, I think most people, whether you have a PS3 or an Xbox 360 have plenty of games for 2008. Heck, we just got Soul Calibur IV. Can you blame Microsoft for taking care of their user base?

JD_Shadow3391d ago

Correction: There was a delay on GTA4 that was because of the 360 shortly thereafter, making that PS3-caused delay moot by definition.

If you're going to tell THAT story, tell the ENTIRE STORY, not just the story that fits the ideal you want to give to people.

Grassroots3392d ago

Mass adoption will never stick... Japanese will stay more closely to the Wii or PS3...

It will definitely get a nice piece of the market share but won't be huge in the end.
