NG: Google statistics show the combined interest in Microsoft's exclusives far outstrips Sony's...
Uh oh...It's gonna get hot in here
Just out of interest what games have MS shown I know of Gears of war 3, possibly HL3 and portal 2
hehe check out MSs list against SONYs http://www.nowgamer.com/aja...

Com on you guys know MS are freaking secretive...and I know you know that. You look nervous acting that way....and I think you should be nervous :D edit:there are PSP games in that list.
"Google statistics" -_-" the title is misleading Google them selves didn't say anything this is talking about the website Google and the search statistics i don't why you PPL are disagreeing but that's the fact read the damn thing anyway i cant wait to see what all 3 got to show
@crazzyman..nice list..comparing 2 games to the entire GT catalogue of all platforms that span about 10 years.NICE!LOL! the fear is tasty in here.
Queue SDF with some statistic.
I think people are just interested what MS will be showing cause they didn't announced much. It's not as if MS will have better E3 cause of that and "win" it because some guy checked trends on google analytics. IMO there's always only one side winning the E3. Gamers. And I plan to win this time too.
MS has ALL the momentum going into E3. Isn't that the POINT of E3 to ANNOUNCE new games. Why would they show you everything before the conference?
quite weird to see move being "rated" higher than natal and free realms being the 3rd most buzz worthy Sony title
360 has how many coming exclusives? 1? 2 maybe? PS3 on the other hand is climbing towards 10 in the next year. Obviously every 360 gamer has googled, "gears of war 3" a bajillion times because they have nothing else to google. Hardcore gamers aren't googling Natal, and PS3 gamers have a variety of games to look up. This is dumb...sigh, why did I even reply.
when websites are desparate for hits they really will do/say anything ... this is laughable (regardless of the fact that big $ has a longer listing than M$ ... ) .... question is .. why do we care? EDIT: I had to try this out .... so I went to google noobsite/insight to try it out .. I just had to see for myself. You guys will get a kick out of this beta app .. here's a link to where I used "XBOX360" as the search term - http://www.google.com/insig... (Japan does the most searching on 360 ..) and here's one for "Playstation 3" - http://www.google.com/insig... (I don't even want to say who is number 1 for this .. it's so funny :D lol) ... so I threw "Nintendo WII" into the mix (just for kicks ...) - http://www.google.com/insig... (Denmark cares more about WII than anyone in the World SHOCKING lol).
Thats probably because sony gamers are too busy playing all the good games that have been abundantly coming out... This is far fetched and its funny to note that according to this people don't give a squat about natal, they just want another halo and gear of war... Edit: This info is bunk... According to this ps2 is rated higher than ps3. although all the searches for ps2 are coming out of chili... xbox rates higher than than xbox360 suprise suprise... because all xbox hits also include xbox360... its all how you type in the word... and the derivatives... this could be manipulated so easily to get whatever damaging results you want...
I'm from Denmark and I LOVE WII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! On topic: That list got PSP games so this doesnt count as Xbox 360 vs Ps3 Fanboy War content :O Even though fanboys sure use everything against eachother these days... Fanboy wars is going to be really the day we see Xbox Portable :o and "Xbox Erricson" phones XD "Oh no the Sprint president is at the Xbox Erricson conference... Have they stole yet another phone carrier???" EDIT: @deafwing: LOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!!! Try look at the Xbox insight analytics... Look at what Xbox usually is combined when searched: 1. jtag 2. darksiders xbox360 3. jogos para xbox360 4. jogos xbox360 5. xbox360 コントローラー And I guess people say that piracy is'nt a problem on Xbox? I wonder how the hell xbox games still sell when piracy is a big problem :o BTW the last one means "Xbox 360 controller"
Like I said before people want surprises and Sony has pretty much given away everything. Also the lists are pointless because everybody knows that PS3 games are always out years from there announcement at E3.
"Sony has pretty much given away everything." I suspect that's not true but E3 is a couple of days away so we will see. "everybody knows that PS3 games are always out years from there announcement at E3" LBP2 (2010) KZ3, inFAMOUS2 and MS3 (2011)
"Also the lists are pointless because everybody knows that PS3 games are always out years from there announcement at E3." Woah what? Do you know what year it is? Maybe when the console first came out and everyone was working on their first ps3 engine/ip, but its not that way anymore. I think you may know this though and are just trying to be lame.
none of those games are surprises. but you forget last years sony conference the big things for them were already anounced. they showed god of war 3 and uncharted, MAG, and modnation racers at their conference and that wowed people. for me id rather see a game demoed live than just a trailer. not saying i won't take a trailer. even better they show a cool trailer of twisted metal ps3 then go straight into a live demo = epic win
Oh its nice to know that you went to the future to watch E3 and came back to tell us about it. Thanks ;)
congrats crazy im glad you feel better
Crazy like to post lists.
Seriously, why is God of War 3 on Microsoft's list. Where 360 fans searching to see if God of War 3 is coming to XBOX. Someone explain, it's too early in the morning. Am I missing something.
Maybe they were typing GOW3 instead of GEOW3.
god of war 3. a game that came out months and months ago. compared to a game thats yet to come out or even an ingame trailer yet to be seen. lool im pretty sure people were looking for gears of war 3
Whoops my apologies lol. I told you it was early, rough morning. lol
You know this website oh so well my friend. Here they come!
How is this news? Did people think it would really go the other way? SMH
This is extremely skewed. He is using an unfiltered method to track this rather than basing it on the category of games. This means it includes business search responses, such as from retailers, as well. Guess what, those are the largest hit responses and most of the games on that list aren't even listed on them yet. I'm putting together a list that is specific to the 'Games' category for a better analysis. Give me a bit and I'll post it. ============================= =================== EDIT - Google Analysis Image Attached ============================= =================== I don't know why the author used their own point system based on Google numbers already to determine interest since Google already tracks it. But, without any fudging, searching within Google's 'Games' category rather than all categories that include retail sites, not including small games not really in the media (Move/Natal specific-titles) and including a lot of multiplatform games in the list, here's what I came up with. http://img404.imageshack.us... You'll note that the top-tier games tend to average out to about the same in the last 30 days.
Yup, this is exactly what I said below.
Then damn I must be doing a good job. Microsoft pays me $9/hr to search "XBOX 360", "Gears of War 3" and "Halo: Reach" all day in Google in an effort to skew Google Ads data. It's boring work, but somebody's got to do it. Don't hate me, Sony fans. I'm just doing my job.
This is the best comment I've seen in a while.
I see that its video game politics as usual. Stupid shit, but oh well whatever floats the fanboy's dick,. Out!
Because people wanna know what the hell MS are doing! People know what Sony are doing this makes perfect sense.
edit never mind, didnt work when my comment was at the bottom of the reply list :(
confusing as to where your post some times ends up. especially if it jumps a page :)
Ouch. Will be interesting to see if this changes during E3. If you're into that sort of thing.
Oh, who really gives a beep really? it's results of a website, if you've got nother better to do with your time than this, you have my deepest symophy.
My deepest symophy also.
360 owners are curious to know what microsoft has instore for E3, they are scared that sony are showing so many exclusives and want to know if MS can get some multiplatform game for them.
Lame + flamebait. NowGamer is begging for hits, should be banned.
The results from Google Insights can vary widely depending on search term order. Additionally, without the knowing the filters applied to the comparison these numbers _could_ be widely inaccurate. Check it on Google Insights yourself, I guarantee numbers will be different to those reported. Either way, both consoles have some great exclusives on the way.
Google & Microsoft tag team.
they are scared no games are announced and are searching desperately and as i said beg sony for some multiplatform games.
Talking about cirque du soleil and icarly. Why can't you guys just give Sony some credit for having GAMES. I seriously doubt some of you people actually play games.
Why give Sony credit for games when that's what you fanboys do all day long? On top of it, you people do it in 360 articles! Personally, i couldn't care what games the PS3 has to offer because i don't own a PS3. It's really as simple as that. I happy for you that you get to play great games. I really am! Enjoy them! I simply can't understand why can't talk amongst yourselves instead of trying to convince others who are not interested in buying a PS3?
Who is this you people you speak of? If you are talking about me, a person that has been gaming for more time than you've been on this earth... okay. If you are talking about a gamer that has owned more consoles than you... okay. Just because I own a PS3 this gen and I feel that is the only console I need, why is it that diminishes my opinion as a gamer? I am not going to get into why, but I don't want a 360. I have a PC and a PS3 and I hate being redundant. Enjoy your games too... I am not going to stop giving my opinion because you don't like it, sorry. Quit trying to make like I am some paid corporate scum that is trying to push a companies agenda down your throat.
I couldn't help but laugh (I bubbled you both, but I'm not telling if it was a positive/negative bubble :D) lols
for someone not interested in the ps3 you sure talk about the ps3 alot. Almost all the comments you have made are either about sony, ps3, sony fanboys, or all of them together. Your not interested in the ps3 you hate it.
Well, I've been gaming since the Atari first came out. And I can say without question the 360 is the best system I've ever played. It's called personal opinion. You love your PS3, other people love thier 360. Move on already, it's been almost 5 years. Every system out right now has its benefits. They all got great games. Just play em.
i love google and i love MS...think they would make a great team.
It might be because, first of all, it wasn't google who said it. Just someone referring to google statistics. Secondly, Google and MS have been on the competitive front for much longer than MS and Sony have. The chances of them teaming up is just as bad as Sony and MS teaming up. Google has been taking up the internet market by a landslide, and is ,quite frankly, the only competitor to MS. (btw, I didn't hit disagree.)
http://www.youtube.com/watc... the doomsday busaiku knee kick rules .. lol.
is that list correct, so besides fable 3 and reach the 360 has nothing but natal. and sony has like 10 exclusives wow sad indeed
Try some deodorant, I can smell your bias from here.
Just limiting yourself to on set of exclusives is the saddest part. Sony exclusives + MS exclusives + Nintendo exclusives = gamergasim.
lol I thought i read gamer-gai-ism (gay-ism)?? wtf lol but i get your point
One day you'll run out of straws. What then will you grasp?
Calm down Sunshine.
You got a disagree for THAT? ...baffling.
Welcome to N4G, my friend.
What games have been talked about i surely dont remember any gears or halo after killzone 3 and lbp2 got announced.
Lol what exclusives? The same trio MS always talks about? Halo, Gears and Fable? XD what a joke.
It is sad ^ indeed that 10 exclusives do not create as much curiosity as 2 plus natal, indeed it is sad. MS own marketing, people should come to terms with that. They have shown ONE demo of natal and Move has shown so many but the buzz is still with Natal. Sony fanboys can cry sales is not equal quality all they want but in the end gaming is all about business and if you do not know how to market your product you will be left out in the cold crying that the opposition is greedy and does not care about its consumers.
Gaming is all about business? Speak for yourself sir.
but it is... If you think Sony and MS are in the videogame industry to bring joy to the masses then you're sadly mistaken.
If anything this list proves that the user base is fixated on these same titles over and over. Gears of War Halo 3 Gears of War 2 Halo Wars Halo ODST Halo Reach Gears of War 3 rinse repeat rinse repeat. Isn't there more to the 360?
Mass Effect 2, Alan Wake, Crackdown 2, Fable 3, Splinter Cell, Forza 3 just to name a few. Is there anything else to PS3 fans than whining about a console they dont have ?
