2010 – The winners and losers

The games industry isn’t a school sports day – it’s not the taking part that counts. Winning is everything. And pointing out the losers is important too. Here’s X360's rundown of the biggest winners and losers of the year. Please feel free to argue vehemently about it…

A shockingly honest list. Typically these things are as biased as a college football fan, but this one was good, even pointing out that public unpopularity doesn't mean a company isn't raking in the money. Damn you Activision.

How can Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo be Winners? Lol. What is this, Little League where 8th place gets a trophy?

It's business, not a sports ladder. Can Apple and Microsoft not both be successful? Coke and Pepsi? Any other two competitors from other realms of business?

Winners and Losers implies that it is a competition, which means that you can only have one real winner. This isn't an article entitled "Successful and Unsuccessful."

All three companies didn't produce on the same level as one another. Obviously one had to have had a better year than the other two because the ability for all three to have the same year is astronomically impossible.

It doesn't matter which you pick as a winner, but have some balls and pick one winner and stand by it.

That or just be a big complainer about a surprisingly honest and candid piece. Way to bring that Positive energy! ;)

im sorry but the real winners are these big time corporate businesses. All they sold us was the same old game with different names. we rarely see the action adventures, and the 3d/2d platform games. If gamers are winners.... lets just say they only bought the games that truly defines gaming. "IMO"

Xbox360 is the winner because its a million sales ahead of the PS3?
Also because Halo reach en mass effect sold like crazy?

Lol pathetic.
Oh wait, Xbox360magazine. nvm

What good would that do? He's already past dementia.

DoomeDx2603d ago

It would do the wallets of a lot of people good.
