it seems the french don't buy that much software though

France has a strong Sony branding, though Nintendo is right now the hottest console there, easily selling double or triple what PS3 does.

Microsoft suffers from non existant presence last generation, typical hate of the Microsoft brand and Japanese pro bias.

So, is this a good sign or a bad sign?

thematrix12983329d ago

good sign...are you dumb or lazy to use your brain?

Pennywise3329d ago

Matrix, unnecessary... but funny!

5 games to each console is not too shabby.

PS3 in France, Gears in whole world. The second one is a bit bigger than the first one.
To be precised, as far as I know gears sold 5m by the september so it may, or may not be more.

Oh, Chris, you've changed your comment, no worries I have original ;]

ChrisGTR1: "well it depends though, gears 1 (1 game) has sold more copies than all ps3 games combined in france... so you tell me if thats a good or bad thing."

Well hay, you can take it one of two ways:

1. Gears of War sold more than all the PS3 games combined in France.

OR

2. Gears of War ONLY sold more than all the PS3 games combined in France.

If you think it's a good thing, it'd be 1.
If you think it's a bad thing, it'd be 2.

Either way, it's quite impressive for both sides. France selling that many games, or Gears of War selling over that many games.

ChrisGTR13329d ago

well in france the game/console rate is 5 , sony hasnt really said what their global rate is yet but the 360s is 8 i think.

the last time sony announced their game/console rate it was 3.2 i think. but that was a long time ago.

Karum3329d ago

Your comment might have had some shred of validity if the PS3 and it's games were only sold in France.

Unless ofc those 5m Gears games were all sold solely in 1 country ofcourse.

Kamikaze1353329d ago

GOOD SIGN! Why? Because the more consoles it sells worldwide, the more developer support the PS3 gets. More developer support = more games.

@Karum: When you read closely I was replying to Chris[something] comment but he changed it before I written mine so it happened to be inadequate to situation or absurdal I would say. But to clear things out I've copied his original comment from my browser's cache and pasted in my comment. You'll see it if you look close enough. I confused it a little, should look like that:
