The Bitbag writes, "Microsoft has released their year end numbers and statistics on the Xbox 360. The attach rate is a blazing 6.9:1."
can it output big numbers and sales that makes developer jump over to the desired platform that will print money!
I was unaware that the 360 install base was at Almost 18 million. "Microsoft has sold more than 17.7 million Xbox 360 consoles worldwide."
I guess the Holiday rush had a huge impact. I do realize that the Holiday season is the busiest time of the year for gaming sales but I didn't know it was that huge.
With an attach rate of almost 7 games per console and a healthy install base, Microsoft will have great bargaining power for 3rd party exclusives for 2008. Publishers and games producers will see huge profits on 360 game development.
2008 "Microsoft has sold more than 17.7 million Xbox 360 consoles worldwide."
2007 "Microsoft has sold more than 10.5 million Xbox 360 consoles worldwide."
What's so pathetic about Microsoft's latest lies about worldwide sales is even vgchartz.com which has been constantly inflating 360 sales isn't even will to lie THAT MUCH.
that is the only defense sky has put forth.
Ps3 has sold less total units world wide then 360 and Wii.
It has sold less games then both 360 and Wii.
Consistantly its games score less then 360.
Ps3 has 8m units sold and only 3 million people on psn....A FREE service that takes all of 2 minutes to sign up for....
P.S: I feel i must add that I own all 3 of the current gen systems and I enjoy each one, Infact my fav portable system is a freaking PSP but that doesn't change the facts, ps3 will sell well in 2008 probably better then the 360 But FACTS are FACTs and all the stuff above is fact, posting conspiracy and lies with no proof means nothing and I was just pointing that out about sky.
Bubble for you:))
This is pretty good for MS but 4 out of 6 are probably shooters.
i own about 30 games right now, and have owned or played over 40 not including arcade games, and 13 or 14 of them are shooters depending on your definition. so it's not 2/3rds for me. only 1/3rd.
What's your point? Are you trying to say shooters suck or what? Speak up, you are allowed to express your opinion freely here at N4G.
best selling games on the PS#3 2 of them are shooters
Bubbles for you, wha is even more pathetic? at launch it was RFOM this year all they talked about was UT3 (LOL and none of them actualy bought it) and now they talk about Haze and Greyzone, opps I mean Killzone 2. <---all shooters, hell even Uncharted and R$C have guns. Things that make you go hmmmmmmm.
This doesn't indicate that the 360 is expanding their audience. The games that 360 needs to so well is Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Eternal Sonata, Viva Piniata, and Viva Piniata party. If those games don't sell well than the 360 can say good bye to eastern development and that's the way it's going. There's really no Japanese exclusives for 360 after Lost ODyssey.
Lost odyssey looks amazing though and i'm thinking of getting a 360 just to play that game.
So they like to say it's like 2/3rds shooters when it's not really.
Regardless, when a system keeps pumping out great games were going to keep buying them regardless of what they are.
No, noone is trying to downplay the shooter games on the 360 as there are many great ones. But the thing is jrpg and games like viva Pinita do horrible on the 360.
8million Halo 3's sold? That's pretty much every one person in two bought the game. I'm interested to see how quickly/by how much the user base grows in 2008.
You would think that will be the case, but it isn't. Halo 3 isn't a Wiisports that expands the audience. Halo 3 caters to the same audience that owned the xbox the western and shooter fan demographic. I mean there's 8 million sellers on PS2 and that system sold 110 million units. Halo 3 sells 8 million on 360 but there install base doesn't reflect off of that. It's because Halo 3 doesn't exapand the audience as much as some other games that don't necessarly sell as much.
is still the most played on-line game for the Xbox 1 many people still haven't bought a 360 for Halo 3 yet.
http://vgchartz.com/games/i... ^ list of 50 360 high selling games.
Oh and a pie CHART
only 17% of the games on the 360 are FPS/shooters.
Oh and dont bring up the 22% actually read the ARTICLE, it says going by New information 22% of the GOOD scored games on the system are FPS games;) that Mean out of the Good games on the system the ones that scored great on metacritic 22% of them we're FPS.
Edit: @ below to says you.....yeah um no...in actuality the attach rate for 360 is higher in JAPAN and europe then ps3....
Edit: 2 below mike lol your a fool Lets see i've been on the site all most a year now, and nothing i say is BS and every thing i said above is fact.
You have to have a high install base in order to sell more. You have to have a combination of a high install base and attach rate to be successful. The 360 has games that appeal to people that already own 360. And William everything you say is BS is anyway. Lets see what the next account name you're going to make after this one is suspended.
come close to have 17 million what a bunch of liers infact there bigger liers then Sony is and I don't consider Sony liers and plus PS2 has bigger attach rate then them and PS3 has a bigger attach rate then them in europe and asia.
I don't think Microsoft can get away with lying about those numbers. I think it's against United States law or something? I can't really say for sure, I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure they'd get in deep doo doo if they did lie. Can anyone help me out with this?
inaccurate financial information.
but prison time is dished out by the federal government. It takes some serious fraud to get the government to move.
You been crying all day in the Xbox post, how do you even have tears left SaysYou?
Here is some diapers for you poopy pants http://www.pampers.com/en_U... and some Kleenex for those tears that keep flowing http://www.kleenex.com/USA/... USA this here is for that dumb ass whiny conspiracy theory of your http://www.foxhome.com/xfil...
LOL wanna know what is sad? it's that all your post today basicly just scream "I DONT BELIAVE IT I DONT BELIAVE IT! LALALALALALALALALA" <--with fingers in ears. I sear next your going to start kicking the floor and throwing a temper tantrum. Oh god, I hope you don't go on some killing spree, with a rifle and a tower.
I have exactly 7 games:
BioShock, Halo 3, Gears of War, Forza 2, Oblivion, Crackdown and Project Gotham Racing 3. Looks like I'm going by the 6.9 attach rate then. :)
Edit: I actually I have 8, I forgot to list Lost Planet! :P
Edit @ Meus: What games you have for 360?
I have 9!
EDIT: Who disagreed with me? *French accent* Sir, I challenge you to a duel!
I have 4...most of my stuff is rentals....I Dont like paying out 60 dollars for a game.
I own 2 ps3 games, and 5 Wii titles.
I've traded in a few I didn't care for. I also have extra controllers and two racing wheels, one MadCat and one MS. Nearly forgot, the messaging pad and a 512 meg MU(I use it as the profile key between two 360's).
games i have MASS EFFECT/HALO3/BIOSHOCK/forza2/c rackdown/shadowrun/two worlds/oblivion/cod4/cod2/sain ts row/assassins creed
forza 2, marvel ult alliance, halo 3, perf dark 0, ridge racer 6, oblivion, gears and about 7 arcade games.
Who wants to bet theres dozens of secret games in development for the 360.
I dont think 360 has a equal so far. When it comes to selling software.
because even though I just got it, I already have 7 games for mine: Forza 2 and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance (free with the console of course), Halo 3(as a Christmas gift beside the 360), FIFA 08, Mass Effect, Dead or Alive 4 and Bioshock.
PS: How do you set up the wireless Network Adapter?
Just snap it on the back of the 360. Then just go to network settings and go thru the steps. You shouldnt have any problems.
or at least open it up to allow third party wifi usb adapters to work on the 360. $100 is just too damn much for that. Lower the cost of the drives too. 120gb for $60-80 and hddvd for $50-70
I've had mine since launch, and this is by far, the most games I've owned for any console probably.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Dead or Alive 4
Fight Night Round 3
Forza Motorsport 2
Gears of War
Madden NFL 2006
Madden NFL 2007
Project Gotham Racing 3
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent
Rockstar's Table Tennis
WWE SmackDown! vs Raw 2007
Aegis Wing (XBLA)
Geometry Wars Evolved (XBLA)
Hexic HD (XBLA)
Texas Hold 'Em (XBLA)
TMNT 1989 Arcade (XBLA)
I also have a plethora of accessories including three controllers and rechargable battery packs, play and charge kit, quick charge kit, and a couple faceplates. There might be more, but I can't recall everything right now.
I love my console and because of the games and decent compensation, I've tolerated having to send in my console a few times. The games make it all worthwhile.
I have around 24 retail games for my 360 and around 5-6 arcade games which a few of them I got for free. I've got 2 games for my PSP, 2 games for my PS3 and 25 games for my PS2. Probaly 10-12 games on my Xbox 1.
I buy mutiplatform games on the 360 instead of my PS3 tbh.
Halo..... Thats it so far.
