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

randomwiz3087d ago (Edited 3087d 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?

gaffyh3087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

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.

Halo3 MLG Pro3087d ago

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 FairyTail3087d ago (Edited 3087d 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?

Pistolero3087d 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.

ZuperAmazingCooKie3087d 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

ShabzS3087d ago (Edited 3087d 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.

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

blackbeld3087d 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!!

xztence3087d ago (Edited 3087d 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.

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

AngryTypingGuy3087d ago (Edited 3087d 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.

JonnyBadfinger3087d 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.

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!!!

morganfell3087d 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.

KingME3087d 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 man3087d ago

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

YourCall3087d ago

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

morganfell3087d ago (Edited 3087d 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.

kaveti66163087d 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



Stay classy, Morganfell.

morganfell3087d ago (Edited 3087d 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

kaveti66163087d 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."

Anon19743087d ago (Edited 3087d 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.

JOLLY13087d ago

just calm down a bit little buddy

Anon19743087d ago (Edited 3087d 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.

JOLLY13087d 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.

Anon19743087d ago (Edited 3087d 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.

Killzone 2:

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.

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.

Light Yagami3087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

Halo 3 sold like 3 million on its first day. Flopzone 2 can't even sell 3 million after some months. lol.

Edit: Okay, okay. Halo 3 sold 3.3 million on the first 12 days. It had 4 million pre-orders.

InfectedDK3087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

Again, again..
The bots can't understand..
I'll say it for the 2355th time.. IT IS BECAUSE THE PS3 HAS SICK MANY AAA EXCLUSIVE TITLES OUT THERE.. THE 360 DOESN'T AND YOU ARE STUCK WITH OLD GAMES LIKE HALO AND GEARS OF WAR. WHY IS THAT FANTASTIC? TELL ME THX. AND WHY DON'T YOU EVER UNDERSTAND. Thx...! Phew... Sorry.. You asked for it again bots :) I just don't get why we constantly has to hear about the Halo sales.. We get it! Ok.. Move on thank you very much indeed.. I could write 550 articles about that the PS3 has better exclusive games and spin it differently everytime but why should I do that?

The people here "defending" this article fails. The article fails.
It doesn't even answer the question in the headline. "Do Xbox 360 exclusives sell and score more than PS3 exclusives?" - So they take a game that is released in 2007 and a game that is released in 2009 and compare them without saying the year of release or anything else.. This is childish. Sorry. And I can see the numbers for myself on VGChartz and everyone interested has seen the numbers and this is not news at all.

Dah.. Lost a bubble because I said my oppinion.. Whatever bot I'll survive.. This is the Open Zone right?

Anon19743087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

Look at that Light Yagami guy above me. I suppose you consider the other 99.5% of Xbox 360 games released flops because they didn't move 3 million units in a day, huh? You know, because otherwise you'd just be a hypocrite, wouldn't cha?

Again...this isn't an article. It's not informative. It has 4 sentences and the rest is vgchartz data. It offers no opinion. It's clearly in violation of the N4G posting guidelines. How on earth does garbage like this get approved?

air13087d ago

and what did you d-day article privide that was new or even news worthy?

you guys are so lame 1 day sony fanatics bust a nut over revenue and the next day sales dont mean anything. from now on im just going to picture you ppl as giant flip-flops..

InfectedDK3087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

Well let me cut this into pieces..
It is great when the PS3 sells well and the games does too..
But nobody ever compares them to other games like Xbox360 games (in sales).. Why should they? Heck even if the PS3 had a game that had sold 9m nobody would care about writing 1000 articles about it comparing it to a 360 game that came out years after and spin and lie so that people that doesn't know the real facts gets cheated! There is a big difference and it makes me more convinced that bots are bots.. I didn't think it was that easy but this just proves it.. It's almost like somebody is sitting and thinking how can we spin things so that it sounds like the 360 is better.. Because of sales.. Compared to PS3 games that released years after.. WHAT THE.. I don't understand why this gets approved and I loose a bubble.. Something is wrong, sorry to say.

This article is biased childish crap packed with tons of vacuum and it is no news nor informative at ALL.

If I remember correct atleast there is a release date on VGChartz, so my question is as follows: Why did this site leave out the release date. Simple as that. Is is absolutely as informative as the millions it has sold. Why??

air13087d ago

spin what? when halo 3 launched it sold more in 20 min..

6months later and kz2 cant sell 2 million, hell i just read an article that halo 3 is out selling kz2 in uk. let me guess thats a spin too?

Anon19743087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

The D-Day article provided a recap of news that we had seen leading up to the conference in Germany, speculated and offered an informed opinion about what was in store and commented on the possible effects of those events

This article contains 4, count em, 4 sentences. Those sentences state
"Both consoles have great exclusives," Thanks.. that was news to me.

"The 360 launched a year early," I heard sumthin about that.

"In this article we'll analyze," Well great. Why don't you then? I see metacritic scores and vgchartz numbers. No comment. No insight.

"This is just our opinion," Well great, but didn't offer an opinion. You just threw up metacritic data on 12 games.

If you can't tell the difference between this and a well written, thoughtful article then I don't know what to say to you that you could possibly understand. Go run along and play.

InfectedDK3087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

Now you are a good example here..
No, that is definitely not spin - Those are facts that tells the truth. But why write 1000 articles about it? I'm not deniying the truth I'm kinda saying that everything should be said so it doesn't get misleading.. The facts in the article doesn't show the full truth and the bots here commenting doesn't get any more clever.

Here's a little story from me to you:

TRIPLEBLACK: I ran 2 miles!
ITSLIKEACIRCLE: Well, I ran 5 miles!
The schoolteacher noticed that one of the boys were not quite telling the truth.

The next day ITSLIKEACIRCLE got applaused by his school friends.
BOT: Did you actually run longer than TRIPLEBLACK? That's amazing you are soo much better than him!

The bots never found out that ITSLIKEACIRCLE actually stopped the watch, cheated and ran longer than the time they had been given.

He might have been running longer but he had more time to do it.
Nobody of the bots would find out before they voted for him as their sprinter for the summer atlethics (They bought the 360) were he outperformed and fell and were not to run again. He got the RROD.
It was too late. But they had to defend him, they did not want to loose it all.

TRIPLEBLACK were missing more people to play with because the bots chose the other side. Somehow he was happy with it afterall, he got rid of all the trolling kids and sorted them out.

Halo 3 has been out for over 2 years, Killzone 2 has been out for only 4 months. GT5 Prologue is a demo, Forza 2 is a full game and was bundled with the Xbox 360. Fable 2 was released last years, White Knight hasn't been released in NA and Valkyria Chronicles is SRPG not a RPG. Gears of War 2 shouldn't be compared to MGS 4 because Gears is nowhere near the epicness of MGS 4. Xbox 360 has a 7 million unit lead and a 1 year head start. But most importantly Sales is not equal to Quality.

jack who3087d ago

ok ill give the sonyfans that "Halo 3 has been out for over 2 years, Killzone 2 has been out for only 4 months" and only sold 1.76 million while halo 3 did over that in one day spin that.

Saaking3087d ago

Halo 3 is the successor to the best selling franchise on the original xbox, not to mention it had a marketing campaign that cost more to make than the game itself. Killzone 2 is the sequel to an average PS2 game. Halo 1 and 2 sold millions, it's only obvious that Halo 3 would have a big first day. Killzone 2 will sell over 2 million copies in it's lifetime and that's pretty good considering it's background.
