Three European nations, three sets of sales charts for the week ending May 20. Do try and enjoy them.
What a total bullcrap.
"As you can see, if it wasn't Pro Evo or Nintendo games, Europe just wasn't interested. Not even a little."
Based on 3 countries? That's whole europe?.. ok, and Italy has Spiderman 3 on position 1 and 10?.. they really must like Spiderman3.
We Europeans do not like the 360 or Nintendo.
I think the truth about the games available now is very interesting, and it shows how the PS3 is a huge waste of money.
1. The number one game on the 600-dollar system is a game I had on my 360 long ago.
2. Out of the top 20 games on the PS3, only 2 are not on my cheaper 360.
3. There is only one game above a score of 88 on the PS3 and it is on the 360 too.
4. That is right, not one exclusive for PS3 is above 87.6
5. The xbox on the other hand has 3 exclusives higher than any PS3 exclusive.
6. The xbox also has 6 games in the 90’s vs. 1 for PS3 witch is Elder scrolls and even it ranks better on the 360 version.
7. The xbox has 9, that’s right 9, exclusives in the top 20 VS. 2 on the PS3.
8. Who in the world would pay 200 more dollars just to play worse games? And fewer games? Just the ignorant as hell playstation only community.
(refer to flag)
so you speak for all europeans?
Do you, I'll admit that i'm not so fond of the 360 or the wii, but that doesn't mean that you can speak for all of europe. does it?
I am not saying that in behalf of all Europeans. Most of the European gamers wold take a PS3 over the 360 any given day. That is just my opinion.
I lived in Croatia for 12 Years and in Germany for 8. To bad i never had a chance to go to Norwegen.
ITS NORWAY FOOLISH MORTAL.
but no I'm really not that mad but ignorance is not bliss. and geographical and nationality ignorance are not excluded.
Please tell me that you really knew it was norway and that you are pulling my leg because if you really believed that it was norwegen then you are truthfully, a foolish mortal.
for some body speaking on behalf of all Europeans on what they would rather, and including that, it's too bad, you've never been to Norwegan. maybe that was a typo, cause I am not from American either. I don't think anybody has been to NORWEGAN.
Bro you really can't speak for so many people, I mean we all know the PS2 has been Sony's goldmine the last 10 years, worldwide but I wouldn't go overboard.
I could understand MS not being as popular (YET) but you know how long Nintendo has been around?
Well Im European..
I love the PS3
I like the 360
I can't stand the Wii
to hear the ITR / Sidar / rebuttals / refutations. Commence!
i am european.
i love the ps3
i think the wii is ok
i hate the crapbox (poor quality sh!t from ms, the only good thing from ms is visual studio and age of empires, the best strategie game ever!).
our european brothers know caca when they see it, so do the japanese, 3k 360's a week and falling.....lmao
No 360 games have been released lately forza and shadowrun will change those numbers
Well I don't know how this turned into hate for 360 and love for PS3.....all I see is DS and a few PS2 games at the top, which isn't surprising since DS outsells every hanheld and console at the moment and PS2 has a huge install base. We don't even know how many copies of either title sold, but those 3 markets are small compared to other much bigger ones, but again I'm pretty sure the PS2 install base there is much bigger than any of the others,(duh) so at the moment I would be surprised if GOW 2 (great game) Pro Evo (Euro's love "football") wasn't near the top of the best seller list, especially with no significant big recent releases from the other consoles. I don't see PS3 games either so how this translates into love for the PS3 and hate for 360/Wii is just more wishful thinking.
BTW, not that I think it would matter in this case, but doesn't Germany have laws against selling certain game types there? I'm curious, does Spain or Italy have similiar laws?
19 people i know have 360's.
i pray that 1 day uk and usa get the same game release i.e english.
and the rest of europe gets the delayed to be translated version.
but I play one on tv...
Yeah that list seemed like a whole lot of DS and PS2. So to say no one was interested in Nintendo is kind of silly. Also when playing live I always get into deathmatches with Europeans in there soooo I don't know...
Honestly though how can one hate a system? It's not a person or even a thing it's a piece of electronics...
I believe the chart speak for itself, European including Australia love with Sony. Look at australia chart, Resistance and motorstorm still on top 10. I also believe shows and newspaper such as BBC watchdog that pointed out Microsoft Hardware failure openly tend to steer consumer away from XBOX 360. Finally, the European does not like Microsoft. Just look at the anti-trust lawsuit against Microsoft in EU.
hey yeah I forgot about that anti-trust suit plus the watchdog! bubble for you sir
