PS3 audience just enjoys a wider range of games :-)

Active Reload2727d ago (Edited 2727d ago )

Who doesn't? Don't answer that...I think I'm going to vomi...

Edit: Below, you obviously don't have a 360. I'm pretty sure there is a tit for tat in comparison of games for each system. In other words if one system has a particular type of game, the other system has one that is comparable. I don't have a PS3 but I've borrowed one before and I really don't remember playing any games that weren't on the 360 that was similar. And since I don't have a PS3 I'm having a hard time thinking of any games that it has that the 360 doesn't. It would be easier to say "What genre of game is on the PS3 that isn't on the 360?". I'm drawing a blank though...

Well, the 360 D-pad is rubbish when it comes to fighting games. And I am talking about the stock ones and not the new ones that I believe cost around $65 (but please do correct me if I am wrong).

Secondly, PS3 games have had a far wider rangs of different types of games than Xbox 360.

Thirdly, and this is strictly my personal opinion that kids are known to love 360 while it seems to me that PS3 has a more mature audience. Again, i could be wrong but I get the feeling that kids simply love 360 at least in the U.S. and they also love FPS games.

Xbox 360 fans love FPS games. Again, the controller could be playing a major issue here as most of the FPS gamers prefer the 360 controller instead of DS3.

Kratos on the PS3 is a big selling point.

Too bad PSN has been down so long.

Focker4202727d ago (Edited 2727d ago )

LittleBigPlanet 2, God of War, Heavy Rain, The Last Guardian, Twisted Metal, Uncharted 2, Infamous, Modnation Racers, etc.

You were saying??

Dark_king2727d ago

@Focker420 add Flower,Flow and heavy rain.Not to mention Sam and Max,Fat princess and Pain.

Scary692727d ago

You are drawing a blank because your a brainless fanboy.

ethan2727d ago

Haha the title made me think the article was talking about PS3 gamers arguing they are better than Xbox gamers. Then I realized it was about MK9 lol. Great game by the way!

dgonza402727d ago


what game does 360 have that is like Little Big Planet?

Or Heavy Rain?

Aloren2727d ago

Well, what game on PS3 is like Tropico ? or Supreme Commander ? or Viva Pinata ? It just works both ways... like it or not, 95% of the audience likes the SAME GAMES. A few more people like FPS on 360 (probably due to the controller), and a few more people like fighting games on PS3 (again, probably due to the controller)...There's always a small difference in every genre, RPGs usually sell better on 360 (with one notable exception), sports games usually sell better on PS3, etc etc...

Also Xbox pad isn't really good for fighting games, it's common knowledge. (I'm not saying XBox sux and should cut itself with a soap or something)

i blame the 360's dpad
it really is a pain in the a$$ playing 2d games

Scyrus2727d ago

yeah its pretty obvious, even if the xbox gamers did like fighters alot they are almost forced to get the fighting game on the ps3 just because the controller is so much better for fighters

antz11042727d ago

LMAO at you and hay above, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the d-pad on the 360 controller. I play MK9 with it and it works fine. Stop trolling.

Active Reload2727d ago

I'm rather sure that no one is going to buy a $300 system for a fighting game when they can pick up an arcade stick for as low as $50. But yeah, the D-pad on the standard 360 controller is sh*t.

radphil2727d ago

"LMAO at you and hay above, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the d-pad on the 360 controller."

There isn't enough space between the stick of the d-pad and the casing on it. The d-pad IS badly made on the controller.

Does that automatically make the controller bad? No.

Is there much more worthwhile d-pads and other formats out there? Yes

"PS3 audience just enjoys a wider range of games "

I call this BS.

look for example black ops sell more than all exclusives PS3 combined.

xTruthx2727d ago (Edited 2727d ago )

Someone needs to go back to math class, GT5 anyone ? 6 mil in what ? 6 weeks ?

Tony-Red-Grave2727d ago

i dont even want to mention how wrong this is exactly

crzyjackbauer2727d ago

now matter how many exclusives the ps3 has, all my friends on PSN are playing Black Ops

Cyorg2727d ago

It'll sell even more when PSN comes back up.

Kahvipannu2727d ago

"PS3 audience just enjoys a wider range of games :-) "

So your saying there isn't players who play only fighting games? I have never got that comment..

Both ps and x0 players play all kind of games, some wider, some more narrowed.

NewZealander2727d ago

a lot of people who bought the game on ps3 are also multi console owners, if you own both 360 and ps3 its obvious that you would get it for sonys console, i hired the game out on 360 because i was taking it over to a friends place to play, and he only has xbox, the d-pad made the game almost unplayable, if i was going to buy it i would defiantly get the ps3 version for the controls and kratos.

so if it sells better on ps3 thats not to say ps3 gamers enjoy fighting games more, its saying all gamers are smart enough to get the version that plays best.

Playstation, It only does fighting.

(And please, don't make some foolish joke out of that -_-)

jriquelme_paraguay2727d ago

how to make a more follish joke than that

artynerd2727d ago

Playstation, it only does D-pad.

jack who2727d ago

nothing new here

xbox gamers prefer racing and shooting.

ps xbox controller wasnt designed for fighting games

GameSpawn2727d ago


As far as fighting games selling more, it's because the Xbox D-Pad is freaking trash for fighters. The DualShock has always been the next best thing down from an Arcade stick for years.

The fighting hardcore still prefer high end arcade sticks though, which can be obtained for a variety of consoles and even the PC.

Also, the other variety argument makes perfect sense too. The PlayStation brand since the PS1 has always been synonymous with variety of games and gamers. Frankly, there is something for everyone on PlayStation; it does not discriminate.

maxcer2727d ago

"The DualShock has always been the next best thing down from an Arcade stick for years."

I would have to disagree with you on that one. the sega Saturn pad is widely knows as the best pad out there. and since the madcatz Fightpad is very close in design it would be next with the DS a distant 3rd.

Tony-Red-Grave2727d ago

whered you get that BS last i checked ps3- racers shooters fighters rpgs

360-some rpgs shooters and racers are the lowest

Aloren2727d ago

BS indeed when he said racers sold better on 360, but really, fighters and racers sell pretty well on 360, not as good as on PS3, but it kinda compares to how RPGs and shooters sell better on 360 but still sell well on PS3 :D

Ddouble2727d ago (Edited 2727d ago )

Shooting yes but i won't say racing.

Racing games sell the most in europe and the PS3 is doing better there than the 360.

ShadesMoolah2727d ago

Tis true, I remember some great fighting games on PSone (Street Fighter Alpha zero 3, DOA 2 , Ehrghiz, Toshinden, Tobal, Tekken etc.) and I guess that has stuck. This was way before Xbox was born.

bunt-custardly2727d ago

Well, PS3 gamers probably have been buying more games recently to make up for their lack of online time on Call of Duty, Kilzone etc.

Scyrus2727d ago

yeah cuz i guess blazblue, sf4,mvc3 SC4, tekken etc all outselling their 360 counter parts b4 psn went down was all in preperation for when psn goes down right.......noob.

I play fighters more than shooters, there are just to many shooters this gen, and thats all xbox has.

homer2727d ago

How foolish of you sir to suggest 360 was a shooter centric console, and pretend that the ps3 was not. If anything, ps3 is more shooter centric, with the best shooters appearing exclusively for it. (Mag, Killzone 2 and 3, Resistance 1, 2, and 3, and other fps while excellent games such as Socom 4 and UC 1, 2, and soon to be 3 take up the tps side)
