"Xbox 360 software revenue at retail outsold PS3's software portfolio 8:1 and Wii's 4:1, selling 3 times more than both platforms combined.
o For the month of September according to NPD, Xbox 360 software represented 74 percent of total software sales for the next generation market compared to 17 percent for Wii and 9 percent for PS3. Even without the sales of "Halo 3" the Xbox 360 portfolio outsold the PS3 portfolio 2:1.

Additionally, Xbox 360 is home to the best-selling games with the top-rated next-generation titles.
o According to the world-wide authority in entertainment reviews, Metacritic, Xbox 360 has 80 titles with a Metacritic review score of 80 or higher compared to just 31 for PS3 and 11 for Wii.

o Newly released title "The Orange Box" (Valve) and the highly anticipated title "Mass Effect" (Microsoft Game Studios) have both generated rankings of 97 and higher according to Metacritic. And not to forget "BioShock" (2KGames) which remains one of the year's highest rated games."

That amazes me.

More BS by BS sites that have MS c0ck shoved up their asses


Yeah, I'm joking. Gee I wonder why ? Could it be that 360 has a ton more games out right now ? I mean that could be the key.
PS3 will get it's time in the sun when games release, uncharted, UT3, nov' area and in 2008 when the big PS3 titles hit but for now it's MS's ball, they have home court. Impressive numbers

...but you also have to remember that in its first year, it had the highest game attach rate in history. From launch until now, there has been nothing but an abundance of quality titles for Xbox 360.

I'd be interested to find out what the attach rate is currently and how much (if) it's changed in the past six months to a year or so.
