Xbox 360's Online Dominance Over Playstation 3 Starts Slipping

"But something that sticks out about 2010 is that the Playstation 3 has continued closing the gap with the Xbox 360 when it concerns online surfers. This of course has to do with Sony's own recently released motion-controller, the Playstation Move. For fans of gaming who enjoy following the industry as much as playing games, it looks like the race is continuing to heat up between Microsoft and Sony. That only means one thing - gamers will win on both sides because both companies will continue to strive for better products and games in order to compete. Check out the graph below courtesy of Google."

Search:

http://www.google.com/trend...

Your search is completely unfair ''PS3'' can mean something else then the Playstation 3

Now heres the result when you search 360,PS3

http://www.google.com/trend...

As you can see now they are pretty much on par with the 360 sticking out most of the time,

But obviously the ''Xbox 360,Playstation 3'' search is best one.

vgn242899d ago

Regional arguments always make me laugh. Who cares what so and so searches for in whatever location. Play the games. Who has time to look up these silly stats? Bloggers, that's right.... not gamers.

Mystogan2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

Im just proving that this is crap,
he obviously did a unfair search for hits

Edit: And he actually wins WTF?, This shit Actually got Approved?

Dee_912899d ago

so you actually would have to add the PS3 and Playstation 3 Searches ..according to this calculator that would mean the PS3 had higher searches ....what else could PS3 mean .... google PS3 and see what comes up for the first 20 pages lol thats what a PS3 means .. Playstation 3

ingiomar2899d ago

I searched this ''Xbox,360, Playstation, PS3''

http://www.google.com/trend...

aaaand...Xbox still comes out on top

Dee_912899d ago

i said add them ...
meaning
ps3 search + playstation 3 search = total amount of ps3 searches

raztad2899d ago

Even w/o adding them, xbox and ps3 search numbers are quite close, especially during the current year.

360 can mean so many things more than PS3

Raikiri2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

Thats why he said ''Obviously the Xbox 360,Playstation 3'' search is the best one''

raztad2899d ago

Yeah, he said that but I dont agree.

I never use Playstation 3 to search anything on google. PS3 is the universal used term.

Spider0502899d ago

Xbox 360 came out 2005 worldwide, PS3 came out 2006 end, 2007 Europe.
Next year you see it even more.
Next year Xbox 360 has Gears of War 3 only, and it comes out September, while PS3 comes out many single/multiplayer games like LittleBigPlanet 2,Killzone 3, Socom, Motorostorm, Twister Metal and ofcause this year Gran Turismo 5 what sell 8-10 million for sure becuase GT5P sold 6 million(5 blu-ray million and 1 million download PSN).

Xbox 360 owners needs to play now old games like Black Ops or Halo Reach 10 month before Gears of War 3 comes out :D

Raikiri2899d ago

another one gets disagrees for facts and even hard evidence

thewhoopimen2899d ago

Mysto,

Why don't we meld your suggestion and the authors and take a look at that trend?

"Xbox 360, PS3". It shows the gap has LONG closed.

tatotiburon2899d ago

Nykamari2899d ago

Dude nobody is going to wake you up out of your fantsy, i have 4ports and more variety and better games to play on my ps3 than my 360. While you hold onto your 3 excusive ip's for the 360, i'll be getting new ip's for the ps3! Wake me up when the 360 get something NEW!

wenaldy2899d ago

You really sound desperate...

dead_eye2899d ago

so many points that have nothing to do with gaming.

KillerPwned2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

Fanboy`s are so funny!

MysticStrummer2899d ago

PSN has always been as good as XBL in terms of gaming. XBL wins for social BS that effects gaming very little. Cross game chat is the big talking point, and many PS3 users, including me, don't want it. Awesome and unique IPs... you must be talking about Sony there because Microsoft is far behind in that category. If you see a dildo when you look at Move, that says more about you than it does Move. Most games don't require an install, and when they do it doesn't take half an hour. Launch PS3s had more than 2 USB ports. Your list wasn't enough of anything except fanboy BS. You would have been awake years ago if you were a gamer instead of a blind Microsoft supporter.

jizzyjones2899d ago

Wake me up when 360 has some exclusives besides Halo, an when I don't have to put AA batteries in a controller, or pay for an online service which should be free.

Heartnet2899d ago

more than 2 usb ports.. as far as im concerened all other consoles have 2 usb slots lol.. and u can dish out a few quid to get 5 slots lol.. and ive never installed a game that has took longer than 5 mins lol ^^

only thing decent about ur statement is your Name since Fairy Tale Rocks :)

SoSLy2899d ago

Is that tears of deperation im reading?

you know what, do us all a favor and dont wake up, just dont.

GamerGuy1532899d ago

vhero2899d ago

Wake me up when a "gamer" actually gives a damn about cross game and party invites as only fanboys give a crap about those. They are only features 360 have over ps3 and that's why people keep bringing it up. It's like saying wake me up when 360 has blu-ray built in. Quit the fanboy antics and actually talk about stuff gamers want like quality games like twisted metal and the other great quality games Sony has coming in 2011 and MS has had the last couple of years.

derseb2899d ago

wake me up when this BS discussion is finally over

but nice to see a Xbox fanboy once in a while. there are not many left...

HolyOrangeCows2899d ago

"there are not many left"

Bull....crap.

Narutone662899d ago

a lone MS employee with multiple accounts make up most of the hardcore 360 fans here.

Pennywise2899d ago

Wow you guys are all lazy... its 10:45am and you are all still sleeping. WAKE UP.

Anyway, wake me when the x360 stops outselling Ps3 weekly in Europe and worldwide

shutupandplay2899d ago

Exactly.

Who cares about online dominance? The 360 has been plowing through the PS3 in the real world for months now, and it looks like it will continue for the holidays. The gap has opened back up to 5 million, and will grow another 1-2 million by years end. The dominance is growing, not slipping.

FrigidDARKNESS2899d ago

exactly....the video i posted explains why xbl on-line will continue it's dominance.

westy5522899d ago

Arnt you three guys cute, all cuddled up next to your xbox. Awwww

'wake me when the x360 stops outselling ps3 weekly in europe and worldwide' ill give ya a call in a week champ.

'the gap will grow another 1-2 million by years end', lol, r u sure about that?? What figures are you going off? Because the rate since 360 slim was released there is now only about 30000k difference in the consoles on weekly sales and that trend has been decreasing every week. Please use actual figures not made up idiot numbers.

vhero2899d ago

erm... Japan not exist to you fanboys.. Oh wait... Tunnel vision comes as standard with the Fanboy package right?

Lord Gunchrote2899d ago (Edited 2899d ago )

lol you need help. When a lead is cut by millions over a couple of years, thats not domination. Get rid of the Microsoft butt beads that seem to be clouding your judgement.

gamerzBEreal172899d ago

lol what about the 2-3 years ps3 was dominating 360? all we heard then is TOTAL SALES lol we closed the gap from 8 million to 3.5 how much we were "dominating" you
