Queue up the complete Gamefly Top 10 most requested list...
Wow, 8 360 titles with only one title for each of PS3 and Wii. Still, glad to see BioShock at the top :)
Thanks for the help. Updated :)
Yes, the 360 dominates all software charts.
ok...this is for a game rental site. I was starting to wonder why it was almost all xbox games. I mean usually the wii owns all.
Hardware sales and Wii Sports sales (bundled w/ hardware)
Otherwise if you look at the software sales ....more often than not the 360 tends to dominate the software category (sales and rental).
there renting until they finish it
it doesnt count as a sale
(reply)do you see any wii games no 1 ps3 game
that mean people are buying the game
people are renting 360
do you think bought these games for them to rent?
I don't necessarily think that the rental list is a GOOD thing. It means a lot of people don't want to buy it but want to rent it instead. Does anyone have a comparison of rental vs. sales? That would be interesting indeed... Is there a postive, negative, or no correlation?
I don't think a lot of rentals is generally a good thing.
Obviously, a hugely popular game will get more sales and rentals than an average game, but the way I see it, very good games get a lot of rentals and sales.
Good games get less rentals and more sales.
Bad games get more rentals and fewer sales.
Really bad games get a few sales and fewer rentals.
Bioshock and MP3 are very popular games that blow everyone else away on their sales and have a lot of rentals. Stranglehold got pretty medicore reviews, so I would guess a lot of people are renting, but not buying.
I would assume its different genre to genre, as well. I wouldn't dream of renting an RPG because they generally take too long to beat. A party game, though, generally lacks the depth needed to keep you paying for long, so even a really great party game is more likely to be just a rental.
