Call of Duty is huge in the US, and about 70% of franchise fans play their CoD games on the 360. Take CoD away, and maybe the 360 doesn't outsell the PS3 in this country.
Could be but idk. I just know 360 crowd like shooters more in general.
As does PS3 users. The best selling game on PS3 is Call of Duty. The PS3 has more of a variety in exclusives, but they don't sell like shooters do. If Sony did a list like Microsoft does, you would see mostly the same games besides the exclusives. COD, FIFA, Madden, GT (Forza for 360), probably Skyrim etc. Yearly sports games and shooters rule this gen. Sad really.
Shooters are the most popular genre period, but which system has a higher percentage of people who perfer other genres?
Part of that 360 crowd you mention. I prefer RPGs rather shooters. They tend to last longer and more re-playable. Shooters on the other hand can get boring.
Yeah i know on PS3 shooters are popular. I'm fed up with shooters period. Only shooter i might play is the new Counter Strike. I like RPGs more too.
It could be. But then again, its not really a great opinion, since CoD is huge on both consoles.
Its on both systems. Branding.
call of duty only dose well cause it lacks other games on xbox ps3 owners have way too many exclusives and games to play.. same with halo or gears.
And That is why COD is the most sold Game on PS3 despite all the exclusive games you mentioned? If you combine all the so called exclusive games on PS3 they wont be close to what COD sells...ON PS3 ;) You fanboys are either blind or dumb.
MS treats COD like it's an exclusive. With that comes a crap ton of advertising and getting the game popular. PS3 users realize they can buy it too and be "hip" so it sells the game on both consoles. The fact is with exclusives, Sony has a budget. That could be 500 million dollars for example. That 500 million dollars has to be divided into publishing and advertising the game, so it shrinks. You have 7 to 10 exclusives it then has to be divided to each game and it shrinks even more. Imagine if ALL 500 million was spent on maybe 3 games at most.....
Even with a lack of exclusives there are still an arse ton of other multiplats to play outside of COD.
Really cell? Ps3 owners are too busy with their exclusives HAHAHA give me a break. If that was the case then ps3 cheerleaders such as yourself wouldnt be on this sote flaunting your alleged superiority. I have a ps3 and Im finding lack of games that interest me. Last best one was probably rachet and clank and heavy rain. Feel free to have your ps3 troops swoop in and give me a list bigger than schlinders cause itll only benefit me to find decent games for it.
Hasn't 360 been outselling PS3 since before COD became famous?
Because of the RROD my friend bought 3 360s before finally switching to the PS3, so I guess it makes sense that the 360 has been outselling the PS3, but that's nothing to be proud of
games on 360 are mostly point and shoot, shallow as hell if you ask me, if you're a real fan of games, games that are't just about violence and blood, games with a bit of depth, substance and sophistication, you play exclusives like journey, the unfinished swan and MGS4 on PS3
@Kent80082007 Yeah.... No there not. If your a real fan of games you would play and enjoy the great games on all platforms rather than make inaccurate derogatory statements about one console or another. Both the 360 and PS3, even the Wii and PC for that matter have stand out platform exclusive games. To say the only games a 360 gets are shooters would be like saying all the PS3 has is Japanese games, completely untrue, ignorant and inaccurate.
I just hope Black Ops 2 will perform the same on ps3. could care less about xb360 vs. ps3 i have both.
Maybe part of it is because its marketd as a360 with 360 1 month exclusive DLC and the 360 logo at the end of each commercial.
Not to troll but are you kidding? The reason the Xbox sells better is from: 1) The marketing and price. 2) Quite possibly people have played the older systems and found the PS2 inferior 3) Gamers or people that do their research, will compare reviews for nearly any game released on both systems, and unfortunatly for Sony, hear how buggy their games are in comparison to the Microsoft console. Me, I fitted into the 3rd catagory. I wanted a PS3 just for the blue-ray an the promise of better games visually and in size, however after seeing many new games that were visually inferior and hearing how buggy and broken some were on the PS3 compared to the 360, the choice became instantly clear. The killer for me is still Fallout 3. My 360 died and I had the opportunity to buy either machine, Fallout was so choppy on my friends' PS3 that I laughed and went 360 again.
360 was outselling PS3 in the U.S. long before COD came and it will continue to do it with or without it.
