this is what happens when a system has great's what helped sony kill sega

Sony didn't kill SEGA, SEGA killed themselves with the Saturn as it was a 2d powerhouse as SEGA underestimated the consumer demand for 3d unlike Sony with the original Playstation

SEGA only have themselves to blame for now only being a software company

back on topic yes great games sell systems Halo3 is proving that, not only are the installed base buying it but it's making new gamers buy into the 360 hardware aswell.

However some of the posts saying game set and match to Misrosoft are kidding themselves. Sony have plenty of system sellers on the Horizon

please don't be blinkered into thinking otherwise

Hope they make Halo 4.

I kinda hope they don't. Would be nice to see something new and innovative from Bungie instead. Halo3 should be the final Halo.
Better end it when it still is good.

If they continue it it would really suck. It would still sell godd, but people will definitely not like it as much as 1,2,and 3.

SuperSaiyan44044d ago

Sorry Bungie only do up to 3 thats what they said.

Anyways Xbox 360 will be the winner this gen :-)
