Only Xbox 360 offers such a stellar holiday lineup in 2007, this is truly a great time to be a gamer with the Xbox 360 having the greatest lineup in history.

Not only does Xbox 360 offer the best exclusives this holiday with Halo 3, Mass Effect and PGR 4, but it also offers the best third party titles which run and play better on Xbox 360 than PS3. Coupled with the easier development, lower royalty payments to MS than Sony per game sold and a higher attach rate of games than the PS3, the Xbox 360 has become the next gen platform of choice for third party developers now and into the future.

PS3 has uncharted,haze,GT5 prologue, SOCOM confrontation,FOLKLORE and Ratchet and Clank.

Which is a much better lineup than Mass effect and PGr4 ( a game that got 7+ from many EU websites and Pro-g)

Whooptie do. Halo 3 garners 300 million in one week. And Micro$hit is still in the red.

1 billion dollars + on fixing faulty systems. Another billion lost on past gen Xbox losses. Plus them spending over 500-700 million on advertising Halo 3 alone. Not to mention spending 100+ million just to get PS3 games to go multiplatform.

This is just a pea in the pot. Micro$hit is still in trouble and still in the red. Micro$hit needs to step their first party game up instead of clinging on Sony's nutsack.

scriptkiddie3398d ago

at least they are spending good money getting great games for the system. Another system that will remain nameless spends a lot of money on movies and a movie format but not on games.

segasage3398d ago (Edited 3398d ago )

the funny thing is if this game was doing terrable yo would still see such comments, so what difference does it make whether it does well?

This is great for the Halo franchise to go out with a big bang. This game wil be most played for years to come. while KZ2 and COD4 will be great, they will never come close to the popularity.

goodganja44 "SAY NO TO DRUGS" will ya.

some F#nked up Mofos on here literally.

and they've put a billion dollars aside for rrod, not that they've used a billion dollars yet. you are an idiot.

You see I'm a gamer. I love great games. If Halo is a success that's great because it creates a greater venue to challenge my skills (or more accurately my lack of them) against more people.

I don't give a rats ass about MS financial woes. I just want to game. It's not as if I own stock, or my uncle works there. As long as they're not going to go broke and stop putting out games I don't care -and that is not about to happen.

You can love a company's services but hate the company. I my love Rogers cell-phone but I also hate that company because its is canadian telecommunications giant attempting to monopolize.

I critisize M$ all the time in my posts. Zune is a POS.

Rarely do I see PS3 fans do the same, despite Sony acting shamefully on more than one occassiopn.

Sony fans all come across like religious zealots, lapping up what ever the sow is producing whether it be bitter milk or not.

I guess the major difference between Sony fans and 360 fans is the latter seem to hold a bit more objectivity.

If that's the case, why does PS3 have games that you Microboys are still drooling over? Admit it, you jerkoff to PS3's exclusive titles cause they all are AAA.

You'd be delighted if you had Tekken,FF,MGS but Sony's obviously doing something to keep it on their platform so STFU scriptkiddie I owned ur XBot a$$.
