Do Xbox 360 exclusives sell and score more than PS3 exclusives?

GamingBolt.com writes: "There have been some brilliant exclusives released for both the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360. Eventhough the 360 was released a year earlier than its competitors, PS3 is doing amazingly well to catch up with Microsoft's beast. In this article we analyze each gaming genre for both consoles, pick up exclusive games and compare how they did in terms of sales and scores. Please note that there could have been a ton of games that could have been mentioned in this article, but we have picked up games which we thought are the best on both consoles in the respective genre."

...This won't end well.

randomwiz2932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

You can't answer this question. How can you even compare different games? These games feel totally different.

These are ridiculous comparisons...
MGS4 vs. Gears of War????
These games have nothing in common except for the fact that they are 3rd person games.

flaimebait, who approves this?

360 exclusives do tend to get better scores, because the gaming media is slightly biased. You can see that in every game that comes out for PS3 e.g. inFAMOUS is definitely a AAA game, but a few biased review scores from websites like Edge and Eurogamer put the metacritic average down.

The same doesn't happen to the 360 games, because there are no websites (or at least A LOT LESS) that are biased towards the PS3, that review 360 games.

360 exclusives do definitely sell better than PS3 exclusives, but a few facts are never mentioned when it comes to sales for exclusives. For example:

- Difference in install base size (specifically in America where buyers have more spending power)
- Difference in type of install base (I know 360 only owners are not going to admit this, but the 360 install base includes a lot of teenagers, who literally go crazy over average games like Halo 3)
- Halo 3 was the third in an established series, of course it is going to sell more than PS3 exclusives, the majority of which are new IPs
- Hype & advertising, MS are much much better than Sony at hype and advertising. Halo 3 was advertised like CRAZY when it was released, which led to it's great success. Sony hardly ever advertise, and advertising makes a lot of difference.

Oh cmon, let's try to keep this discussion reasonable. Don't give me this excuse of the media is biased towards Microsoft BS. And yes Halo 3 was advertised like crazy when it was released but you don't think the previous 2 great titles didn't have something to do with the great sales? How about the fact that I haven't seen a Halo 3 commercial in forever and it's still sells well and even outselling some of ps3's most recent AAA titles.

If you think Infamous is a AAA title than that's great. You guys put to much attention on metacritic.

Natsu X FairyTail2932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

the media being biased crap is getting old.

how is xbox360 titles scoring better grades in the media any different from ps2 games that used to get better scores than game cube games back in the days?

Pistolero2932d ago

The media in general are not biased...that is just an excuse. For every site that I can detect a bit of anti-ps3 bias, there is another one that is somewhat biased against the 360...the bias goes both ways...but most journalists do a fair job of being mostly impartial.

ZuperAmazingCooKie2932d ago

The majority of JRPGs on 360 have floppedd, and also many games made by rare, but who cares? I don't buy games based on how they sell, but you gotta take in mind that the 360 base is very FPS/WRPG oriented while the PS3 base is more varied, not to mention some are only into blu-ray.

Also, scores are subjective. Halo may have scored 94, Killzone 2 a 92 and RFOM 87 but I liked RFOM the most. I also liked prey, the darkness, timeshift and even Jericho more than halo and killzone, so who cares about scores? I dont even like call of duty and yet it gathered lots of great scores and sales. I like MGS but I like Uncharted better, see where I am getting at?

Useless article

ShabzS2932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

notice each genre has something to be compared with in each console ...

although i think gears should have been compared with uncharted ... mgs 4 is probably in a class of its own from what i've read and heard about it...

but if we are talking about story and replayability with awesomnes then 360 owners should'nt miss out on mass effect... pure genious that game is

anyway all this goes to show is that there have been some great games this gen

They maybe selling more but saying that they are better or get better scores i must be dumb to even think such a thing.

So they approved another article where they could boast their SALES.

It's funny that tense writes his comment after about 40 comments. Dude make a relevant comment.

blackbeld2932d ago

Mannnn...... Whatever who cares sales!!! We are gamers and we live for gaming!! We care only quality and fun games!!! And where can you find quality games??? .........Only on PS3!!

xztence2932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

Dude... give me a break, I'm tired of seeing retarded xbots always fleeing to their sales.
Its like thats what makes them able to sleep at night, knowing their console or game sold over 10m.

they're beyond sad. they're like mentally disturbed.

Anon19742932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

Oops. Replied in the wrong spot. And this article is tripe.

AngryTypingGuy2932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

If this article were the other way around, then it would be the greatest thing in the world. Just because the 360 dominated in both categories, you say it's crap.

JonnyBadfinger2931d ago

Funny just the other day werent PS3 fan girls bragging that EA gets more revenue from the PS3 and were saying its all over for the 360.

Well if you exclusives do this poorly compared to those of the 360, it must be that all the PS3 gamers have are their multiplats.......... HEY! dont shoot me!........... Im just the obvious voice in your head and the guy that is palm facing himself everytime a hypocritical PS3 turd posts a reply on this site.

FACT as proven by PS3 gamers and EA, PS3 owners spend more of their money on EA multiplats........ you guys are the ones that approved the article so dont disagree with this post, cause you set yourselves up for a massive fail.

sabestar2932d ago

Why on Earth do these articles keep on coming. Just stop it already. Good for whoever is outselling the other, but this site is supposed to be for news about games and maybe statistics such as NPD values, but no need for these kind of articles to make whoever owns a 360 or ps3 feel good or bad. Damn!!!

morganfell2932d ago

Why? It's called desperation. Those two Euro price drops today along with the feeling that the official price drop and PS3 slim are just around the corner have people worried.

These type of attempts with no substance are just flailing and throwing one's self against a stone wall. This is what companies resort to when they have no real edge to offer. And such semi-controlled tantrums won't stop the inevitable.

KingME2932d ago

Morganfell - get off the damn soapbox, one could say the same thing about your last comment. Desperation? Are you kidding me, Sony saying that they are not going to drop the price of the PS3 while secretly making yet another "Slim" could be seen as desperation. Although personally I hope the PS3 slim is real, I'd like to get one as long as Sony don't make it "too" slim, like in all the features removed.

We'll see, but this backdoor bureaucratic smack you're talk about someone being scared or desperate sounds desperate in itself.

PS3 man2932d ago

Here here Morgan, you are damn well right. These cats are worried.

YourCall2932d ago

Good point Kingme, I agree 100%. It's pretty obvious who the nervous ones are isn't it PS3 Man.

morganfell2932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

Yeah the nervous ones are throwing everything at the wall and hoping something sticks. It is the same tactic used last Christmas and it is laughable watching someone trying to defend such a flighty and shallow tactic.

Actions are the great definer. You are as you act despite everything that is said and it isn't the PS3 fans that are nominating one ridiculous story after another. In action there is truth and you just can't tolerate the facts.

kaveti66162932d ago

Yeah right, Morgan.

I don't remember seeing any articles like

"PS3 sells less, comes out the winner"

Yeah, that doesn't sound like an act of desperation at all. You're right. Sony fans are saintly, mature individuals who act like pacifists in the face of insults./s Examples of Sony fans that display such unbiased characteristics are:

Nelson M

Saaking

You

Stay classy, Morganfell.

morganfell2932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

I feel sorry for you. Well actually not. But you are one of those people that:

1 - Confuse sales with victory

2 - Think some type of victory is necessary to have the best gaming

3 - Think the console race the generation is decided

4 - Are often OBE because you fail to take a proper estimation of the future

5 - Drive into the ditch because you can't read the signs

kaveti66162931d ago

I assume you're not talking to me. But just in case you are:

I don't care about sales. I don't care who wins. Sony can win. Good for Sony. Microsoft can win. Good for Microsoft. You're analyzing signs through your biased perspective so maybe you should take a step back and stop doing things which you are not suited for. Only objective people should be allowed to make objective predictions. It must tick you off when an Xbox fanboy makes ignorant claims about Microsoft's supposed victory in an endless race, but to unbiased people you also look like a tool when you blindly attack a company you hate and talk about "signs."

Metacritic Score: 91

i lol'rd

Anon19742932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

I mean, if Halo sold more than Killzone 2, and scored 3 points better then that's a slamdunk! There's no need to go any further. Console winner, right there.

This article doesn't present anything new or newsworthy. Should be failed, but watch the 360 crowd push it through and then sit around slapping themselves on that backs.

JOLLY12932d ago

just calm down a bit little buddy

Anon19742932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

And yet, dreck like this is submitted daily. Anyone with a brain in their head can go to metacritic themselves if they're interested and verify that PS3 games on average score higher then the 360 or Wii. What purpose does an article like this serve, an "article" I add that doesn't have any substance other then "Here's some games, sales and scores"?

That's not an article, that's a spreadsheet, and a limited one at that. It doesn't even try to be newsworthy, it's only purpose is flamebait. I bet the same chattering mouthpieces that claimed "metacritic is flawed!" when that "PS3 multiplats score better on metacritic" article came out will rush over and applaud this 12 game farcical comparison.

JOLLY12932d ago

Do mean mean serious(ly) ps3 bias articles? I know that most of your comments bash and even when there is pro ps3 articles, you just never post. Try posting some positive in a positive ps3 article every once in a while.

Anon19742932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

I don't give a damn if it's pro-MS, pro-Wii, pro-Sony...this is a site for game news. This is not game news. This article has exactly 4 sentences. How is this even an article at all?
"Here's some game scores, vgchartz sales figures and a flamebait title! Now back to drooling on myself!"
This is a joke.

NegativeCreep4272932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

Halo 3:

Release Date: September 25, 2007 On market for approx. 22 1/2 months

Killzone 2:

Release Date: February 27, 2009 On market for a little over 5 months.

Yeah now all you dipsh*t MS fanboys come back and tell me such a great sales numbers disparity is equal and fair with all given conditions.

Edit@ Yagami

3 million in one day? Any Proof???

I wouldn't necessarily be surprised though if you can prove it, since the Xbox 360 is defined in the eyes of the hardcore gaming community by only two IPs: Halo and Gears of War. Halo is a staple, but there are chances that Gears of War will appear on the PS3 some day. So you better count your blessings now while you still can.
