Microsoft: Xbox 360 Will Beat PS3 Because Of Stronger Position

Microsoft is confident that the Xbox 360 has a "stronger position" than the PS3 and that consumers will choose their next-gen console this Christmas season. Between the Elite coming out at £299.99 and the recent price drop of the other models, the company may have a reason to be confident.

"If you look at PS3, it's a lot of money for families to come in at," said Dan Cornelius, Microsoft's UK marketing manager for the Xbox 360, to MCV.

Old news; August 25.
As if there weren't enough flame wars going aroung here, they have to dredge old ones to troll more?

Everyone in this thread is wrong but me :D

ReBurn3528d ago

Because as long as they are talking trash about each other they'll keep the good games flowing. Competition is king when it comes to this hobby!

dachiefsman3528d ago

Why in the hell is this news? Why do people keep posting these types of articles? I am sick and tired of these ridiculous flame wars these articles produce.

cartman3133528d ago

If you don't care for the article, why read the comments?

dachiefsman3528d ago

the reason I am complaining is that it puts the article to the top of the page like its real news when its not.

Phytonadione3528d ago (Edited 3528d ago )

have to agree. It'd be a different story if it were a neutral game publisher chiming in on who they thought had the upper hand but....to read about an exec downplaying the competition and patting his own back does not constitute as news. Hell, these execs probably do this sort of thing on a daily basis, with or without an audience. It's not too hard to imagine these guys waking up in the morning, staring at the bathroom mirror and repeating "We are the best. They have nothing on us. We are loved by all."

Just remember what happened last-gen, even HALO2 couldn't beat Ps2. M$ is nothing without HALO, that's the truth. Everybody are saying HALO3 will crush KZ2 and KZ2 isn't even out yet. KZ2 owned E307 and it will own 08 too.

ReBurn3528d ago

Microsoft seems to have been doing pretty well for nearly two years. The last two years have seen some really great titles for the Xbox 360 that I'm glad I didn't have to miss out on. And the future will hold many more, I'm sure.

Now I'm ready for Sony and Nintendo to pick it up and bring on the gaming goodness!

This generation is much different than the last one.

To ReBurn:

The only reason why MS is #1 right now is because they came out first a whole year, if the PS3 and 360 came out at the sametime things would be a whole different. I don't think 360 would have been if if they came out at the sametime.

But back on topic once the 60gb model are all gone the 80gb will be $500 so things will even out the playing feild a bit. I think SONY will have a very strong hoilday once all their games are all out by Nov, but so will MS and NINTENDO will have a great one too.

how dare you mention borezone in the same sentence as halo 3 shame on you kid.

edit: @segasage - good one bro, that little dipsh!t ALIEN always hop's on sony's d!ck everytime there's good news for them.

segasage3528d ago (Edited 3528d ago )

COD4 owned E307. but that up to fanboys to decide.

everybody haven't said sh#t, Halo is not a new franchise and will beat KZ2 sales and KZ 1 failed at life.

stop spurring BS. let not forget Ms has come a long way to securing new ip's/exclusives and have gotten multi 3rd party devs to make games for it's console, after from swinging on sony balls for years, so it's not just halo, you dipsh#t.

if you wanna write MS off after this last halo then go ahead, Ms was not in this for the short-run, and they have not had a run as long as nintendo and sony. it takes tiem and ms has the money..keep your ears and eyes wide shut of yours open..

Halo was made famous by word of mouth or by those that saw and loved it.Killzone has a poor or at best, hardcore following outside the internet and media.Halo is very almost a household name to those that play games especially in the US i would guess.

I liked the first Killzone(atmosphere mostly, not gameplay clearly) and K2 should prove enjoyable, but it will need to be supremely playable if it's to have the same Halo effect - not as likely as some people like to think.

n4gno3528d ago

KZ2 is not on the same world, the first real competitor for halo, and it's gonna be better too, it's UT 2008 (mouse and keyboard !, mods)

halo1 is just a "old" copy of UT.

CNIVEK3528d ago (Edited 3527d ago )

"M$ is nothing without Halo..."

LOL...spoken like a true, ignorant Sony fangirl.

BUNGIE may in fact be "nothing without Halo", since that's really the only legitimate IP they've ever created.
However, Microsoft was/is/will be a MULTI-BILLION $$ CORPORATION "without Halo".

*edit* to Phytonadione...

Of course I've heard of/played Marathon...which is why I didn't say Halo is "THE only" IP Bungie has created. But to straighten you out on your facts, Marathon is actually still part of Halo, as it's widely known that it's concepts gave birth to what is now the Halo universe. ;)

Phytonadione3528d ago

Ever hear of a game called Marathon? Probably the best FPS of it's time. The first FPS that I played that totally sucked me in, and since I started college at that time, it's release couldn't have been worse timing.

Wrecked3528d ago (Edited 3528d ago )

... I've been playing real next gen games since I got my 360. Dead Rising (masterpiece btw) Gears of War (do you really not want this?), Oblivion (long before you, don't care about the better version, I bet it still has framerete issues), all the Tom Clancy games, Lost Planet, Condemned (your loss), Kameo (yes it is really a good/epic game comparable to Beyond Good and Evil, and a launch title). Oh, and Bioshock. The finely crafted game that only only the mentally challenged don't consider one of the best in recent times. And more...

I love video games and had every intention of buying the PS3 and even the wii when they came out. But I was expecting much more from both, so I am waiting. Believe me, I really can afford all of them. The 360 right now is the best gaming experience available and it has been for some time. This may change in the future, but to deny the present situation is just foolish. Not to mention true gamers are denying themselves the pleasure of some of the greatest games ever. It's been a long time since I've gotten this much enjoyment from a system.

chanto233527d ago (Edited 3527d ago )

i guess im mentally challenged cause i played Bioshock, and beat it twice in 2 days and i think its a good game, but the most boring FPS in recent history...
"A Masterpiece".......NOTTTT T

Thats a great article.....

jaehyt3528d ago

With the games that are coming out that are mult-platform and the exclusives that all three companies have lined up, they are all going to do phenominal business throughout the holiday season...but I do think that MS will come out ahead of Sony because of the three titles that are going to do exceptionally large business, Bioshock, Halo 3 and Mass Effect. But, all gamers, on any of the consoles are playing at the best time that I can remember
