can it output big numbers and sales that makes developer jump over to the desired platform that will print money!

BIoodmask3400d ago

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."

LOL!

2007 "Microsoft has sold more than 10.5 million Xbox 360 consoles worldwide."

LOL!

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.

WilliamRLBaker3400d ago (Edited 3400d ago )

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.

This is pretty good for MS but 4 out of 6 are probably shooters.

chester3400d ago

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.

Bnet3433400d ago

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.

Xbox is the BEST3400d ago

JasonPC360PS3Wii3400d ago

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.

IntelligentAj3400d ago

Lost odyssey looks amazing though and i'm thinking of getting a 360 just to play that game.

TheXgamerLive3400d ago

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.

chrno63400d ago

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.
