Uh oh...It's gonna get hot in here

zootang3055d ago (Edited 3055d ago )

Just out of interest what games have MS shown

I know of Gears of war 3, possibly HL3 and portal 2

CrazzyMan3055d ago (Edited 3055d ago )

Because Gran Turismo 5 will sell WW MORE than Halo: Reach or Gears of War 3.

Title Units (K)*
Gran Turismo 10,850
Gran Turismo 2 9,370
Gran Turismo 3 A-spec 14,890
Gran Turismo Concept Series 1,560
Gran Turismo 4 “Prologue” 1,350
Gran Turismo 4 10,980
Gran Turismo 5 “Prologue” 4,650
Gran Turismo PSP 1,800
Total 55,450

*as of December 2009

Com on you guys know MS are freaking secretive...and I know you know that. You look nervous acting that way....and I think you should be nervous :D

edit:there are PSP games in that list.

captain-obvious3055d ago (Edited 3055d ago )

"Google statistics"

the title is misleading
Google them selves didn't say anything
this is talking about the website Google and the search statistics

i don't why you PPL are disagreeing but that's the fact read the damn thing

anyway i cant wait to see what all 3 got to show

Wrathman3055d ago

@crazzyman..nice list..comparing 2 games to the entire GT catalogue of all platforms that span about 10 years.NICE!LOL!

the fear is tasty in here.

Conloles3055d ago

Queue SDF with some statistic.

hay3055d ago (Edited 3055d ago )

I think people are just interested what MS will be showing cause they didn't announced much.

It's not as if MS will have better E3 cause of that and "win" it because some guy checked trends on google analytics.

IMO there's always only one side winning the E3. Gamers.

And I plan to win this time too.

Droid Smasha3055d ago (Edited 3055d ago )

MS has ALL the momentum going into E3. Isn't that the POINT of E3 to ANNOUNCE new games. Why would they show you everything before the conference?

grailly3055d ago

quite weird to see move being "rated" higher than natal and free realms being the 3rd most buzz worthy Sony title

Misterhbk3055d ago

360 has how many coming exclusives? 1? 2 maybe?

PS3 on the other hand is climbing towards 10 in the next year. Obviously every 360 gamer has googled, "gears of war 3" a bajillion times because they have nothing else to google. Hardcore gamers aren't googling Natal, and PS3 gamers have a variety of games to look up. This is dumb...sigh, why did I even reply.

deafwing3055d ago (Edited 3055d ago )

when websites are desparate for hits they really will do/say anything ... this is laughable (regardless of the fact that big $ has a longer listing than M$ ... ) ....

question is .. why do we care?

EDIT: I had to try this out .... so I went to google noobsite/insight to try it out .. I just had to see for myself. You guys will get a kick out of this beta app ..

here's a link to where I used "XBOX360" as the search term
- (Japan does the most searching on 360 ..)

and here's one for "Playstation 3"
- (I don't even want to say who is number 1 for this .. it's so funny :D lol)

... so I threw "Nintendo WII" into the mix (just for kicks ...)
- (Denmark cares more about WII than anyone in the World SHOCKING lol).

jebabcock3055d ago (Edited 3055d ago )

Thats probably because sony gamers are too busy playing all the good games that have been abundantly coming out... This is far fetched and its funny to note that according to this people don't give a squat about natal, they just want another halo and gear of war...

Edit: This info is bunk... According to this ps2 is rated higher than ps3. although all the searches for ps2 are coming out of chili... xbox rates higher than than xbox360 suprise suprise... because all xbox hits also include xbox360... its all how you type in the word... and the derivatives... this could be manipulated so easily to get whatever damaging results you want...

NeutralGamer3054d ago (Edited 3054d ago )

I'm from Denmark and I LOVE WII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On topic: That list got PSP games so this doesnt count as Xbox 360 vs Ps3 Fanboy War content :O

Even though fanboys sure use everything against eachother these days...

Fanboy wars is going to be really the day we see Xbox Portable :o and "Xbox Erricson" phones XD

"Oh no the Sprint president is at the Xbox Erricson conference... Have they stole yet another phone carrier???"


@deafwing: LOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!!! Try look at the Xbox insight analytics... Look at what Xbox usually is combined when searched:

1. jtag
2. darksiders xbox360
3. jogos para xbox360
4. jogos xbox360
5. xbox360 コントローラー

And I guess people say that piracy is'nt a problem on Xbox? I wonder how the hell xbox games still sell when piracy is a big problem :o

BTW the last one means "Xbox 360 controller"

Like I said before people want surprises and Sony has pretty much given away everything. Also the lists are pointless because everybody knows that PS3 games are always out years from there announcement at E3.

raztad3055d ago

"Sony has pretty much given away everything."

I suspect that's not true but E3 is a couple of days away so we will see.

"everybody knows that PS3 games are always out years from there announcement at E3"

LBP2 (2010)

KZ3, inFAMOUS2 and MS3 (2011)

Orange Juice3055d ago (Edited 3055d ago )

"Also the lists are pointless because everybody knows that PS3 games are always out years from there announcement at E3."

Woah what? Do you know what year it is? Maybe when the console first came out and everyone was working on their first ps3 engine/ip, but its not that way anymore. I think you may know this though and are just trying to be lame.

tyrex3055d ago

none of those games are surprises. but you forget last years sony conference the big things for them were already anounced. they showed god of war 3 and uncharted, MAG, and modnation racers at their conference and that wowed people. for me id rather see a game demoed live than just a trailer. not saying i won't take a trailer. even better they show a cool trailer of twisted metal ps3 then go straight into a live demo = epic win

rezzah3055d ago

Oh its nice to know that you went to the future to watch E3 and came back to tell us about it. Thanks ;)

congrats crazy im glad you feel better

ElementX3055d ago

Crazy like to post lists.

GiggMan3055d ago

Seriously, why is God of War 3 on Microsoft's list. Where 360 fans searching to see if God of War 3 is coming to XBOX.

Someone explain, it's too early in the morning. Am I missing something.

candystop3055d ago

Maybe they were typing GOW3 instead of GEOW3.

360 man3055d ago

god of war 3. a game that came out months and months ago. compared to a game thats yet to come out or even an ingame trailer yet to be seen.

lool im pretty sure people were looking for gears of war 3

GiggMan3055d ago

Whoops my apologies lol. I told you it was early, rough morning. lol

CYCLEGAMER3055d ago (Edited 3055d ago )

You know this website oh so well my friend. Here they come!

Double Toasted3055d ago

How is this news? Did people think it would really go the other way? SMH

Christopher3055d ago (Edited 3055d ago )

This is extremely skewed. He is using an unfiltered method to track this rather than basing it on the category of games. This means it includes business search responses, such as from retailers, as well. Guess what, those are the largest hit responses and most of the games on that list aren't even listed on them yet.

I'm putting together a list that is specific to the 'Games' category for a better analysis. Give me a bit and I'll post it.

============================= ===================
EDIT - Google Analysis Image Attached
============================= ===================

I don't know why the author used their own point system based on Google numbers already to determine interest since Google already tracks it. But, without any fudging, searching within Google's 'Games' category rather than all categories that include retail sites, not including small games not really in the media (Move/Natal specific-titles) and including a lot of multiplatform games in the list, here's what I came up with.

You'll note that the top-tier games tend to average out to about the same in the last 30 days.

1112223333055d ago

Yup, this is exactly what I said below.

caladbolg7773055d ago

Then damn I must be doing a good job.

Microsoft pays me $9/hr to search "XBOX 360", "Gears of War 3" and "Halo: Reach" all day in Google in an effort to skew Google Ads data. It's boring work, but somebody's got to do it.

Don't hate me, Sony fans. I'm just doing my job.

MiloGarret3055d ago

This is the best comment I've seen in a while.

dantesparda3055d ago

I see that its video game politics as usual. Stupid shit, but oh well whatever floats the fanboy's dick,. Out!

vhero3054d ago

Because people wanna know what the hell MS are doing! People know what Sony are doing this makes perfect sense.

phinch3054d ago (Edited 3054d ago )

edit never mind, didnt work when my comment was at the bottom of the reply list :(

mantisimo3052d ago

Will be interesting to see if this changes during E3. If you're into that sort of thing.

jay23055d ago

Oh, who really gives a beep really? it's results of a website, if you've got nother better to do with your time than this, you have my deepest symophy.

Keele3055d ago

My deepest symophy also.

ArcFatalix3055d ago

360 owners are curious to know what microsoft has instore for E3, they are scared that sony are showing so many exclusives and want to know if MS can get some multiplatform game for them.
