Did we ever doubt the Xbox 360 wouldn't win? Pretty big gap in kills count for over "24 million PSN" accounts. ;)

Came out a day earlier and has supposedly 9 million more consoles out there. Is there anyone who DIDN'T see it going down like this?

@Xiphos
EA started the timer and counter on both systems that Friday thus giving an equal shot. 9 million more consoles? Ok but how many total 360 owners are Gold members vs PSN owners who can all play for free?

Don't know know if you really care, doesnt seem like so. Neither do I. This will easily get changed into a 360 vs ps3/live vs psn thing. But hey, as with any competition comes bragging rights from the winner.

@ peach: yup you're absolutely right, sony failed this Gen, and the article and proof you chose also shows this very well, you're right just because people who bought Battlefield 1943 on the PS3 couldn't get 43,000,000(which still to me is a ridiculous number lol) in a weeks time, means the PS3 is a failure, oh and BTW seems you're new hear let me show you something called Open Zone, it's your type of Zone apparently its right there ->>>>>>>@ blaze: I can't believe you actually bothered to go and look up the activities this week, wait I can't believe I bothered replying to your comment lol

Getting something for free doesn't make you use it more. Paying for something makes you want to get the most for your money(unless you pay per use) i.e. If you play one hour a year, you payed $50 for one hour.

Free is the same free whether you play it or not!

lol @ JasonXE

Those "24 million PSN accounts" include PSP, online, PS3, sub accounts which u can make for free, all the accounts people use to get America, Europe and Japan.

To pretend like there are as many people gaming on PSN as XBL, is a joke at best.

however EA has since said they have at least fixed the counter for the kill count, at one point reading zero for PlayStation 3 even though the game was out for two days

Joke or not, I don't see a reason to bash consoles. Just because people buy a certain product doesn't mean ANYTHING about the users. Take Coke vs. Pepsi... You don't actively see people bashing other people because they drink X because one tastes better to them. Why does it have to come down to drivel over nothing, since NO ONE is right or wrong in their preference. And that "joke" went over my head because all this site is ever filled with is bashing of either console. And for people like G.E.C. to say I'm trying to justify "my poor PS3 is being picked on" is stupid, since most things that I ever post are about the games themselves and NOT the console. Those arguments/quibbles are senseless and don't help anything. And if a mod just wants to delete my posts, I'll just stop posting on this site all together. Simple as that, since this area is for OPINIONS. Freedom of speech, like it or not.
Dead_Cell  +   1871d ago
Don't take it so seriously all the time.
Remember you brought a console to play games not argue whatevers best,if people would rather b*tch about that sort of thing then that's there problem.
I mock 360 users at times but not out of malice,it's banter and a laugh. then again I don't go into specifics about "how ps3 does this" and "xbox fails here".
I'm happy to say "lol careful of RROD" to a Xbox owner and I can take it on the chin if he replies with "by the time you've installed the game I could have finished it" and joke about it.
It's banter,lighthearted competitions,which could be used productively if they set up PS3 Vs 360 events,hey we could see if 360 owners really are as good at FPS as they say they are or if It's all in the controller ;)

I'm sure it's no different than if you worked at Pepsi Co. Lol. Hell I remember a coke employee and and pepsi employee got into a fight outside a 7/11 because one decided to overstock the shelves on the other ones shelve.

They found out that the Pepsi worker started it and was fired. I knew that drink made people unstable lmao. I'd be unstable too if my company made good drinks only available for a limited time and kept the crappy ones.

So the Top xbox games are Multiplats? hahahhaha
Halo 3 was the worst game in history. It had a non existent story, reused weapons,sounds and designs as Halo 2 and 1. It took 30 minutes to join one online match. The online sucked ass overall anyways.
Gears 2 had potential but failed on every level as well. They only added 2 new guns and pretty much everything was the same OH wait the online was 300 times worse than the first Gears of War. lol just stop Xbots you guys are making yourselves look like idiots.

Look at all the sore losers with their excuses.
Rationalization will get you nowhere. PS3 just can't keep up with the 360 when it comes to gaming. I'm sure if it were a contest to see who logs the most hours watching movies on their GAMING console, you PS3 boys would have won handily. Unfortunately the PS3 doesn't understand that gaming is about fun, not movies, not resolution and pretty animations. Gaming is about fun, and there is little of it to be found on the PS3. You do have a lot of games that are pretty. To bad they play like crap. Ha ha PS3 sucks.

Congratz to XBL users winning the race but..
I can tell u why alot of PSN users didnt buy the game because they dont want to buy this since warhawk is a way better all around game. To me there both similar games but warhawk takes the gameplay aspects to the next level. I still think 1943 is an awesome game but when i tried to encourage sum of my friends to buy it, they say they think itll be a waste of money to buy it if they already have warhawk which has tons of more maps/weapons/vehicles/features so i totally understand why alot of PSN users didnt buy it.

As for me Ive played 9 hours and almost reached 500 kills. I dont know why but my favorite weapons are the sniper/pistol/rifle/& the rifle grenade launcher. I got most my kills on feet because i just suck azz at flying the planes or driving the tank. Only vehicle i do use to get me to far areas is the jeep & it comes in handy when u want to take out an enemy plane or just running enemies over lol. All in all i think if i didnt have warhawk this game would easilly be the funnest game of its type.
SixAmpFuze  +   1871d ago
for those saying that xbox has more users and the game was out longer are wrong. The contest started at the same moment for each game and even thou the 360 has 8-9 million more mxboxes out their according to ms theres only 15-18 million live accounts. The ps3 has 23million units and according to sony 23million accounts. its all nonsense either way. xbox wins woohooo.The game needs major patching
