In an article posted on QJ.net. They show Gears of War as still being the most sought after game for the Xbox360.
Yeah, it's a wonderful game, but I haven't touched it since early January. R6:V has gotten a lot more play from me.
The actual article brings up the fact GEARS is the highest seller while others have solid sales like GRAW, R6V, PREY, FNR3, and many others that have sold respectable numbers. I have almost 20 360 games and I have the hardest time picking what to play every night. I play Gears and R6V the most because I love busting heads with my friends online.
For multi player I would Take Rainbow Six or GRAW2 over Gears any day!
If their is 100 games released for a console. And sales result show that 1 game outsells the rest. It doesnt matter if its by 1 copy or by 1 million copies. Its fair to speculate thats the best game on the console. If it wasnt then it would of been outsold by R6:V ...Graw ...Lost Planet or The Burger King Games. But it wasnt thus making it "The Best Game" on the console. People usually use results to determine what the best is.
If there is a race usually the guy who comes in first is the best. Very rare does the 2,3, or 4th place guy get the title... "Best in the race".
EDIT: SORRY KIDS...THIS POST ISNT FOR THE CONSOLE LOVERS...ITS FOR THE GEARS OF WAR ENTHUSIASTS THAT HAVE NO PROBLEM SAYING...
"HELLZ YEAH... GEARS PWNS ALL"
Im one of those people. I havent played a better 3rd Person shooter yet.
Is the headline of the article. NOT....Gears of War Still The Best Xbox360 Has To Offer. As you put it.
Stop acting so bitter toward the 360. You know what it really is. You need to stop.
You try to be unbiased. But it's clear you are a freakin' Fony Fanboy in disguise.
You changed the original title that said this:
"Gears of War still undisputed at number one"
Why do you twist and turn titles?
Mods I ask you to check them before they're posted on the main site. Sony fanboys trying to make titles to give a negative twist to it. I disrespect you and all others that play in disguise for it.
It's just clear that the 360 sells titles:
"Gears of War (GoW) stays on top of the heap as the undisputed number one Xbox360 title. This is really no surprise as this title has literally taken over worldwide as VG Charts report sales of 3.81 million copies.
GoW takes a lofty lead from Call of Duty 2 in second (1.96 copies) and Tom Clancy Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter in third (1.85 copies). The rest of the list include Madden NFL 07, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Call of Duty 3, Fight Night Round 3, Perfect Dark Zero, Tom Clancy Rainbow Six: Vegas, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, Dead Rising, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, and Saints Row. So far, nothing's shaping up enough to dethrone GoW anytime soon.
Is it possible to overthrow Gears of War? And if a new title is going take the throne away, which do you think most likely will?"
The 360 sells, the PS3 doesn't. That one has only two titles worth it's money almost 5 months after release. Still the best to offer? At least the 360 has something to offer compared to a bluray player that can do some games on top
Oh yeah you also assume the most selling title would be the best or the only 'best' game on a console. Which is also not true.
Psychonauts is the best platform game up to date. Still it failed to sell. The marketing wasn't done well. Which is a shame. I hope it get 360 support with upscaling and a new marketing campaign. It should sell a lot. Gears is an AAA title, but also the marketing machine of Epic/MS was oiled very well.
R6 Vegas is a good game, but it's maybe not balanced enough. It's hard in single player with your buddy's AI. Co-op with 4 friends on the other hand isn't even done by Gears (only 2 friends co-op).
Even though Gears is among the best games around, COD3, PGR3, UNO, Lost Planet, Bankshot Billiards, FNR3, R6 Vegas and other games are in my 360 regurlarly.
Best isn't only sold the most. Among the best on 360 there is a great line up of games the PS3 lacks or has the version with less graphics/gameplay on. Take it or leave it, it's like that
I like how people disagree with you just because you have told the truth. Come on Sony fans. Stop abusing the feedback system too. Every thing The Mart says in 100% on topic of this article.
When you guys are truly able to make statements like 360 fans can make today with out being proven wrong you will not be disrespected this manor.
Stop mobbing peoples accounts because you do not like what they say.
Mart the fact that people disagree with you in mass on every response you make is a testament to the fact people do not like to hear the truth. I back you every time cause you cite sources and statements.
Gears is an awsome game, i still play it play it at least 3-4 days a week. in terms of total sales though i don't think it will get dethroned until we see halo 3 which will desimate all.
thats not saying there aren't a ton of other awsome games, and yea i even had a fun play some of the burger king games, pocket bike racer with your friends is a blast. I have a ton of other games but i keep playing gears because chainsawing and headstomping people just is not getting old. I am ready for some new maps though which i heard is coming at the end of march.
Gears of War is a fantastic piece of achievement, practically anyone would love it. It is the best game on the 360, mate, it's better than anything out on the PS3 or will come out soon...
Would you rather have Motorstorm or this?
Uhem. No doubt about it, if this game was a PS3 exclusive you'd all be having Gears avatars.
More copies of GOW have sold than PS3s? I know M$ has a year head start, but that is just frikkin amazing.
Yeah it outsold it twice, nice isn't it!
this game is a masterpiece.
Next Gen Masterpiece
All my title does is Big up Gears of War. You would have to be a insecure Xbox360 loving lame to take this as a Xbox360 put down. If I said "Bullet Witch" the best Xbox360 has to offer. Then you could attempt to crucify me like you so feable just did. The Game has 9's to 10's across the board on any and every website you go to. So how is my title putting down Xbox360 and Promoting Sony. Mart.... "You better learn how to talk to me" ahahahaha...
Want an example of Shady Flame Bait..here you go !!!
"PS3 Motion control "messy" says EA"
Real title of the Article: EA says Motion Controls are Messy
But I didnt see none of you "Non-Biased" Gamers say anything about that. You guys kill me honestly. Can dish out but you cant take it. All you Xbox360 fanboys have a Glass Jaw and you Guard it for your life. Well keep it up. Cause its gunna get tapped real soon and then its lights out. Im still not a Sony Fanboy No matter what you say. I dont respect fanboy-ing but I respect standing up for what you believe in. But when I sit back and analyze both sides "Sony Fans have wayyy more BallZ than you Microsoft fanboys". They tell it like it is all the time every time. They dont hide behind Bullcrap like "Owning all systems" Or Giving the other console a fair chance. They go right for the kill. If I post an article thats not Positive PS3. There is "Sony Fanboys" as you call them that will approve it. IF I post a negative xbox360 article....The "Xbox fanboys" Report me. Now who got more ballz. you Tell me. Im not a fanboy of either console. Accuse me all you want. But in my closing statement. All I have to say is.
Sony Fanboys: You dont get paid for what you do. But you stand next to the PS3 as if it came out of your Momma's Vagina and I respect that.
Xbox360 fanboys: Im writing to Microsoft right now. Their is going to be a new bundle for you. ITs the Xbox360 premium pack and it comes with a Pacifier. So you can suck on it when someone teases your console.
GAME ON....AND FLAME ON.... !!!!
EDIT: Sphinx: Your right. Not all just some. And I do apologize if I offended you. But if the shoe fits thats a different story. I dont "Pigeon-hole" anyone. But thanks for your concern. I think the World is a very bright place. ; )
Why do you have to stereotype? Not "all" 360 fans are like what you say, and not "all" PS3 fans are like what you say. Stop pigeon-holing people, and you may realize the world is a brighter place.
I have to say, I think the title was very poorly worded. You flame Xbox owners for jumping on that, but I'm sure PS3 fans would yell and scream if someone posted the article saying "Resistance Still the Best PS3 has to offer."
Back to the point of the article...it's pretty amazing that Gears is still up there. I thought everyone who owned a 360 aleady had it!
I disagree with the title too, but mainly because I didn't like Gears. It definitely looks pretty, but if you don't have any friends with 360s to do multiplayer with, the game gets old pretty fast.
lol i love it, when the Mart is crying :D but if it weren't for the gore and chainsaw in the multiplayer, i would probably skip this game... btw. i have 15 games for the xbox360, but once you complete a game, you will never return to it... now back to some Devil May Cry 3 :)
stop your crying already. Take a little good with the bad. I follow Gamers Post. I cant tell if he is a Sony fanboy or Microsoft fanboy or a Wii fanboy. Why. Cause he post positive and negative on all 3 platforms. Thats called news you jerk. I love how you say
"Even though Gears is among the best games around, COD3, PGR3, UNO, Lost Planet, Bankshot Billiards, FNR3, R6 Vegas and other games are in my 360 regurlarly."
So once again. YOu represent the majority of Xbox360 owners. Wow. Nice to know. You have all those disagree's not because of what Thammer is saying but because of your approach. You live in an Xbox360 is God world and it freaks people out. I even heard fellow 360 owners on this site complain about your antics.
Thammer1 lay off the title switch. I can no longer even count on one hand how many time Sony story titles have been flipped up lovely. Yet I dont see your non-biased self righteous self running to that defense. Their was just one yesterday with the whole EA saying Motion conrols are messy. Some one conviently switched the title up to "EA says PS3 motion Controls are messy". Deal with it. Atleast I can see some justification in the title and that is GEARS is one bad arse game. Now quit your crying. Both of you.
Can you not see for your self the switch was completely opposite of the true topic of the article.
For future reference if you see anything like this from a 360 fan call it. Wrong is wrong.
If Ga Mr would have did the right thing he could have simply said, " Look 360 fan boys I post it I do not write it." But because he completely rearranged the topic of the article I called him on it.
You guys have a very tight click on this site where you jump 360 owners accounts and report even the most simple things, I'm not saying that any console bashing is O.K. but give me a break this was a new low for Ga Mr.
And go though my comments on my account and look at how many reports have been left on me for nothing it is stupid. You know just as much as any of us the activity and ignorance that is going around on this site. Most people ignore it when it dose not evolve the console they love but are quick to jump on the competition.
Once again this is expected...GOW is one of the games that only comes along every once and a while it's up their in the upper tier of fantastic games...of course its the best the 360 has to offer, it is the best any system in the next gen has had to offer...
Bitter , sooo bitter GaMr. This is not bad news. What type of fanboy are you , PS3 or Wii ? You knock the 360 so transparently it's stupid.
Just grow up and state the facts , the 360 has the most million sellers at the fastest pace of any console at this point in it's life cycle.
If Gears is tge most popular maybe it deserves it.
ye suck it wankers
Blasting their face with a shot gun
Sniping their heads to make it explode
Torque bowing them in the ass
Tag grenading them to just pissem off
Chainsawing them to send a message that their DEFENSE SUCKS
Pistoling them to show what OWNAGE looks like
Stomping their face on the ground to tell em "who's da man"
BoomShot'n them to just wipe out noobs
Melee them to show off my manouvering skills
Smoke grenading them while they are down.."they will run like a chicken"
oh oh oh oh oh...trash talking =)
Gears of War. You have captured my heart
I think the name of the article is fair. Only because the article is clear in what it states. Also it gets people in upset and interested in the article.
Maybe I should have said "Trailer of Heavenly Sword the best game ever produced" - prob would've got people in there.
Damn. This is GaMr's article. Nothing to do with me Power of Green. WHy you flaiming me dude?...in what way did my post dis Gears of War? Sorry for saying this post will get people interested.
I dunno every now and again there is a construed title. We saw DcRiders "Ps3 motion sensing messy" when the article was about motion sensing in general, also talking about the Wii...and I seem to remember his response being "Yeah whatever, bite me" or along those lines.
DOn't flame me :( I said I didn't mind that post either saying ti just got people jumping in to the article and having a right old natter. We know it's not serious. I'm outta here.
The guy's a super Sony fanboy. Trying to start flame bouts is the reason the site gets improved. This guy's not fooling anybody neither are you.
Remember all you have to do is vote; that this guy's screwing with the stoies and take his right to post news and comments from him. GoW is the most popular but LP and homecourt are better investments.
But if you look at whats selling. Then how would you call it. Please tell me. Like I said earlier.
This post is not for console lovers. Its for Gamers and Game enthusiasts. That dont feel that by saying "GoW is the Best Game on the Xbox360" they are puttin down the XBox in anyway. Please ohhh Please someone tell me how by saying Gears of War is the best game on the 360 I am puttin it down. Come on tell me. Tekken 5:DR was just called "The best value on the PS3" I didnt change that. I am the one who quoted that. Its a PSP port for god sakes. I think any can clearly see im not putting down the 360. Power of Green. Your a lame bro. Every chance you get you try to rally forces against me. lol. Pathetic. Atleast TheMart and Thammer have ballz. They have no problem coming at me direct. You and your little feeble attempts to form a "ANTI-GaMr" camp aint working buddy. I have seen so many story title twists for the worst on this site. And I honestly dont think I twisted this story to diss the Xbox360. As a matter of fact. I will hold a contest right now.
Im calling out anyone and everyone right now. Today is March 6, 2007 on this day. Can someone based on reviews,ratings and sales prove to me why
Gears of War is not the best game on Xbox360(non-multiplat). Come on. Prove me wrong based on the feedback from the Masses and I will shut the f#cc up and never post another Story on this site. And if you cant then STFU please.
(Jeopardy Music begin NOW) and if this vulgar attitude is hurting your feelings go report me. Its all some of you are good for anyways.
Bro the title says:
"Gears of War still undisputed at number one." -and then goes on to give sales data for 360 games, so yes Gears of War is the best selling game which of course means its the most popular game on the 360. -No sh!t!
but you change the title to:
"Gears of War still the best Xbox360 has to offer." -THATS A BIG DIFFERENCE, You have been paying attention on this site, right? -Its the exact same comment thats made everytime (some) "blind" PS3fans need a reason to "bash" the 360, just like any of the "common" negative statements about the PS3 which I'm sure you've heard. Come on Bro, of course I'm not denying that Gears IMO is the best game on the 360 right now, and according to the numbers its definitely the most popular, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that the way you "chose" to word the title "differently" from the way it "appears" was solely to make a negative statement on the console you "hate" so much.
I have no problem what so ever with you "choosing" to hate the 360, M$, or whatever but when you actually start "twisting the headlines" to suit your agenda, well thats pathetic, especially with a name like GaMr....reminds me of another member who has "Truth" in his name but only twisted info. when he wasn't straight out spreading lies. -Talk about an OXYMORON. -LOL. BTW, theres nothing wrong with a good back and forth debate, and I like to see a little "verbal jab" here and there to liven things up, but whats with all the "tough talk" on the internet and this ridiculous comment: "Sony Fans have wayyy more BallZ than you Microsoft fanboys". -LMFAO, are you serious, I see more complaining about 360 fans commenting on PS3 news(which I think is ridiculous) and "why do 360 guys care about ___ if they not buying a PS3", and a whole lot of "crying" when a 360 fan doesn't agree with PS3 fans who thinks ___ game should have gotten a better review", and the list goes on."....then as soon as there is some good news you have PS3 fans NOT ALL but some like shadowgamer, highps3, Astraroth, PS3fan, and on and on....almost "begging" 360 fans to say something, ha,ha I can't believe you even had the "balls" to say that....oh, yeah I forgot you're the "tough guy on N4G", but now because (some)360 fans try to show some maturity and make bold comments without "faking" like a "tough guy" on the net, then they don't have NO BALLS. -Is that really what you see when you "sit back and analyze both sides", yeah I guess YOU would "see" that because you are TOTALLY BIASED, being biased is OK, I'm biased, and every gamer here is biased, but you can't see past it, -news is news, even if its negative so if you post negative news about 360 then thats fine, happens everyday with one console or the other, but NOBODY can post AND say so many SLANTED overwhelmingly negative things about one company and yet say so many good things about the other but yet claim NOT to be biased, you are a "wolf in sheeps clothing".
Now you are starting to sound like shadowgamer blaming other people for your actions because you say you have seen "so many story title twists for the worst on this site." -huh?, so is that WHY YOU "twisted" this title....I read alot of news on this site and there are *relatively few "titles" that are changed on either side to "bash" something, "usually" the title as it is from the SOURCE, is more than enough to get the "flaming" going if that was the posters intentions, but either way thats a poor excuse for YOU to do it TOO, ha, ha now you believe just because 360 fans have rightfully pointed out your "slant" that theres a "Anti-GaMr Camp", -LOL, you give yourself too much credit Bro, you're not fooling anyone, you did it to draw attention yes but looking at your post history there is obviously a biased agenda behind it....at least with DJ and Mart we know exactly where they stand, I'm sure alot of people disagree with them, but we all know they cleary support only one camp, but you are a "wolf in sheeps clothing", so just come out, instead of calling people out,-LMFAO, sorry I never got the flyer for the "Anit-GaMr Camp" but this is MY opinion and I call 'em like I see 'em, so if you read carefully you will understand that my intent was not to "prove" your statement to be incorrect, -No I just wanted to point out your biased hatred toward the 360 so at least your motives for "twisting" the headline are clear for those 1 or 2 people who "might" be unaware.
your a deceptive bigot and you know it!
Nice ASS by the way. 8~)
