Damn that Crazy
43M Halo Games Sold.
50M Call of Duty on Xbox 360 Alone.
82.6M Consoles Sold

Xbox has became such a strong brand.

Well deserved Microsoft.

They forgot to put in the fact that its been holding back the gaming industry since it was launched with its outdated, broken hardware. Only half the amount of consoles sold is the userbase since almost every xbox owner had to by a replacement somewhere along the line, thats a fact. The PS 3 cost almost the same as the xbox at this moment, so wats the point of geting an xbox. All I'm saying is that ou could put up a 10-year-fact-list of Nintendo, Playstasion and PC and the xbox will still come in last. Just stating facts that are missing from the list.

PS3 is still last, been there for 5 years now. PS3 was supposed to pass the 360 by now according to you guys. 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and now 2012 and the PS3 is still last. What happened?

Lets not forget Sony copied Live with PSN, trophies, dlc, HDD's in console, HD console, game/video/music marketplace, and arcade.

@IRetrouk. You hit the nail right on the head. The 360 may have sold more (even that's debatable when you figure that MS has no way of tracking in-store replacements) but research has shown that the PS3 has a greater, active install base than the 360.

I wish it never came out.

At least you're honest and up front.

As a PC fanboy though you should give credit to the people who brought you PC gaming on the "windows" platform.
kevnb  +   882d ago
they didnt bring it, it naturally came. Gaming on computers would of happened without microsoft, it might even have been much better.

edit: Why the disagrees? Most of the issues people have with pc gaming is because of windows being the main os. Linux and mac osx are much better for gaming, but they just dont have the support since 80% or more are using windows.
