NCAA Football 08 is off to a strong sales start on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, though Amazon reports that the Xbox 360 version is by far the more popular of the two, landing in at 15th while the PS3 version sits at 40th.
Lets here the excuses then lol.
just shows what happens when you have the highest attatch rate in the industry and the fastest growing one
awwwww, look how desperate the xkiddies are to feel good about their console. its been been a rough two weeks hasn't it?
More systems for 360...more sold....duh...
Is it that hard to figure out
If youhavent figured it out yet, there are more 360's in households than ps3's. Seriously these useless comments are just geared to starting a flame war.
hey i own a 360...but to be fair...there is something like a 9millon install base figure to think about here guys...come on...of course more will sell on the 360 at this point.
let's compare next season.
edit: you guys beat me to it
lol.......gee the larger user base has sold more, who would of thunk it.
this game is cool but there is way too many fumbles, hopefully sliders will become available to crank that down a notch.
"NCAA Football has a strong sales start on amazon, I love the 360, it's soooo much better!"
"PS3 is the top selling console on Amazon now, pfft Amazon has to be lying...if the 360 had a price cut THEN it will be so much better, are they offering free weed with the PS3?"
...but yeah, more consoles out, more games sold
But yeah XBOX 360 has a larger install base. Not excuses just facts.
so the ps3 dosen't have that much of an installbase, but 40th place?
Are we ripping PS3 because people who own it, don't like NCAA football? I don't blame them, this game sucks ass. EA releases the game crap year after year.
What's the excuse in these ?
Pray, more 360 consoles implies more games sold.
The point is, how long can the 360 sustain it's lead when it keeps breaking down.
A failure-free product with more reliability is bound to lead at somepoint, just plain and simple statistics duh !!
except that the Playstation 2 was faulty big time and it was always the leader.
Not to mention you guys are declaring victory because of 2 weeks worth of sales, and one good showing
360 is the better version.
agreed 11, ps2 hardware wasn't exactly invencible it its still going strong, plus microsoft at least is doing things to fix the problem.
yeah, this console war really came down to who would sell the most copies of NCAA 08. I mean Sony had this circled on their calendar for months cause this was so pivotal. They must be crushed...
EA released a half azz game why should we buy it. If we're going to buy the game, we might as well buy the PS2 version since it's rated the best 8.7
anybody read the review the game on the PS3 runs 30fps at a locked res. of 720p and on the 360 it runs 60fps at 1080i or 1080p. Once again the 360 wins the muitiplatform battle, yes I agree the 360 version will sell more copies because of larger installed base but also the 360 version is better hands down OH and I know U FANBOYS will blame EA. Well U better do somemore research, RB6,COD3,NFS Carbon,The Darkness, The Bigs,etc,etc 360 ROCKS!!!!!!!
Wow your quick, I reckon you were a Bullet in a previous life.
All the games you stated, began life on the 360 platform. And are just that ports.
Of course they'll run better on that hardware, given that the devs have the 360 under control. Its just common sense.
I tell you what, when UT3 comes out on ps3,pc this year, and then 360 sometime after that, then judge.
Remmember that the 360 will have had alot more development time.
My roomate (ps3) and myself (360) both have this game and both agree it looks better on 360, rip on me for posting this if you want but its a fact, sorry
and now Peter M. is running E.A.s show!!!!!!!Tsk Tsk,yet another slam dunk on Sonys struggling console.
will EA start losing billions now that PM is at the helm?
Hey xbots hold on to your feet because the Darkness is ranked 60th for 360 and 61 for the PS3. THe PS3 games sell better in porportion.
lol........the xbots just see what they want to.
but the fact of the matter is.......your nervous,you know it,and here is where I LOL.
Edit:Oh and I forgot another thing........your losing .Sit down Waldos,
I rest my case.
Maybe just maybe this article should be viewed more about how well NCAA 08 football is selling on Amazon across the board instead of each fanboy looking at this and feeling justified/attacked re: their console of choice?
"Gamasutra's weekly column, "Saling The World", covers the top five sellers for every available platform in the United States, Japan, and Europe, providing an important update of sales patterns worldwide.
This week's charts, with data taken from July 19th, 2007, feature a multiplatform sales rush for NCAA Football 08 in the United States and a warm reception for two new entries in Konami's Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu series in Japan. Data for "Saling The World" comes courtesy of the public sales information on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, and Amazon.co.jp, with sales split out for each platform and territory, and pre-orders disregarded."
So....worldwide...NCAA 08 is doing very well. Congrats to EA on another fine football game. However I am still waitin for Madden. :)
I own a PS3 and I would like to say NCAA 08 is garbage, well the online is garbage. The gameplay is real slow, the response time for changing players catching the ball or whatever is just really slow, and I hate that I can't move the player like I wanna move with the ball. Now the offline game is really good, Dynasty Mode I do play alot but I just wanted to get it out of my system to just to let everybody know that if you wanna buy it for online play don't do it because it is not worth it. Hopefully Madden 08 will be better online play then NCAA 08 for the PS3. HOPEFULLY!!!!!!!!!
