Respectable gaming figure in France as well as co-CEO to Quantic Dream, Guillaume de Fondaumière has spoken about the female audience among the gaming community.
The PS3 exclusives cover pretty much all genres so PS3 exclusives lure in all kinds of gamers.
I've always thought that PlayStation is the middle ground of all the consoles with what it offers. It has always had all the "hardcore" stuff, the casual experiences, the quirky/strange/fun PSN stuff and games for all ages and interests. Even miscellaneous stuff like demoscenes and PS Home are really unique for consoles.
Well MGs4 is a Ps3 exclusive and snake has a pretty fine ass in that game. Same for Nathan Drake. And those pecs on Kratos? huba huba
I seriously hope AntoineDcoolette is not a guy. lmao Anyway, it's true that PS3 exclusives offer a lot more variety in genres. There's quite literally something for everyone. From Ratchet and Clank, to LBP, to Heavy Rain, to Modnation Racers, to Gran Turismo 5, to The Last Guardian, to God of War 3, to ...... the list goes on. If you want tons of games that you can't buy anywhere else (no other console or on PC), then buy a PS3.
@blumatt PS3 does not offer The Last Guardian. It teases us with it! :/
This article is a little sexist don't you guys think? I mean my girlfriend loves halo (although she's not that good at it lol) and she enjoys playing games like fable with me. I just don't understand what this article is getting at :S... Are we all under the assumption that all female gamers think the same? and just because they are female, they aren't entitled to an individual preference of games? People like different genres, whether female or not. Would this article be any better if you replace "female gamers" with "african american gamers"? Yeah ps3 exclusives are awesome, but this article is a little stupid in my opinion... Also, Tomb Raider is not going to be a ps3 exclusive, so wtf? lol
have you heard how many females playing halo? you be surprised
Yeah I heard. But what I heard was nothing.
Yeah because most Girl Gamers play on Halo because it's a well talked about video game. Even the ones who do it for the attention (Trust me you get A LOT) play on Halo because it's popular, a lot of "Girl Gamers" play on COD because a lot of boys talk about it. Not saying true girl gamers don't go on it, course they do, but you get those fake girl gamers who don't really give a crap about video games going on big blockbuster games so they can "fit in" or get some "attention", why do you think girl gamers get treat like sh*t, because those fake girl gamers who start a match going "LOOK AT ME, GIRL GAMER HERE", get called a bunch of name, can't handle the "boys club" online and end up bitching about equal rights even though they don't give a crap about games in general.
Thats really a sad analysis of girl gamers. "Fake" gamers are also called casual gamers. As the price point dips more casuals get in. Just because they aren't as "hardcore" doesn't make them less of a gamer, just have different priorities in life. I assure you there are far more "fake" male gamers than girls out there. Many female gamers don't use mics and you don't know they aren't as cool as you since boys tend to act like complete ass hats when they hear a girls voice. The worst in people tends to show when the veil of anonymity the internet casts is upon them. -Death
What sucks about being a girl gamer, especially on XBox Live, is that if we use mics, the boys thinks we're still boys, no matter how many times we tell them the contrary. The internet is a sad place where anonymity is both the angel and the devil, with nothing in between. I'll admit that I've played MW2 because my boyfriend won't stop talking about it, but that's been a "gateway game", leading me to Borderlands, which I LOVE, Bulletstorm, and Brutal Legend, to name a few. Sure, I game, but I have a long way to go before I catch up from the old Sega titles I used to play.
Those were actually 13 year old boys they sound alot like girls though LOL
More females play halo than than any other exclusive. That's a fact.
u might need this http://dictionary.reference...
I don't know a female who owns a PS3 personally, I do know some female Gears of War fanatics though. I'm sure they are out there for both, but I'm unlucky enough to have found them.
oh that interesting.... i personally know 10 girls with ps3. not jusr random girls ive seen on psn. play little big planet. you'll see ALOT of girls on that game. i also know girls with xbox 360. but im more impressed with girls with ps3. only becuase its not big in the usa so when a girl has a ps3 im like wow, you didnt go for the default American console.
Ha ha! It's funny you mention LBP.Every girl i know with a PS3 pretty much only plays LBP.What is it about that game? Is Sackboy really that freakin cute?
Well my girl did get sucked into God of War and Uncharted really quick. They are 2 of her few favorite franchises as of now. But any girl can get into any game no matter what console it is on. Like I also got my girl into The Witcher 1 & 2 on PC along with House of the Dead and Resident evil.
Not surprise yes halo has a lot of girls and like l4d but i think most of those been gaming for a while, i think the reason why lbp, u2, and heavy rain have a lot of girls are it's easy to pick up so a lot of their bf show those type of games to their gf.
Since when is Tomb Raider a PS3 exclusive? lol These articles are getting sad. What's next? "Xbox 360 users tend to have larger genitalia?" N4G--You got an article? We'll approve it.
Well PS3 is the number one console in countries like the Congo so there is no chance of that.
No, they have albino apes and high heat. No PS3's! Liar! lol
Countries like "the Congo"?
@biggest Democratic Republic of the Congo... second largest country in Africa.
***N4G--You got an article? We'll approve it.*** It is community based... Not like a mod has to approve everything here, it's your fellows that are doing it.
lmao who digs this crap up? lol anything that says ps3 is "better" article it gets posted here. geez you guys really are trying to convince everyone lmao. oh yeah i wont be back to this so i wont see all the little kiddies disagreeing lmao poor guys.
I can see girls more attached to PS3 more than anything else...There's LBP, Ratchet and Clank, Heavy Rain, Uncharted, GOW, PSHOME, A lot of Japanese games that girls like. but to be honest, there are some girls who really are hardcore and play FPS, and horror games like RE4, RE5, Silent Hill etc...
"There's LBP, Ratchet and Clank, Heavy Rain, Uncharted, GOW, PSHOME" I'm not even going to bother arguing the stereotype, but of this list my daughter hated LBP and though Ratchet & Clank was pretty fun. She loves the Sims, Halo, and Gears along with a handful of Wii games that can be picked up and set down at any time without having to think about them. I have a pretty decent collection of PS3 exclusives and PAIN is the only one she trully enjoys. -Death
I think girls love MMOs the most though tbh. Its suprising how many female mmo gamers are out there.
Wow this is a pathetic article and a pathetic web site. N4g and its community really needs to wake the hell up.
jees stop crying over nothing and chill out.
All it would take for that is LBP.
my girlfriend loves LBP
I think FF is a very appealing game for females
Females will do anything to fit in lol. That's how they are. I know a girl that hates COD but she plays it just for the attention.
I can't agree nor disagree with that statement. Don't group all females together, just because you know *one* who is actually clamoring for attention that way.
And that's why I said I know 'a' girl. And yes most females like attention and want to fit in. I'm not just talking about gaming. Some guys are the same too. Edit: selenetaron I see that you are a girl. I apologize if I upset you. I wasn't trying to say all females are alike.
Orly? Cliff Blezinski himself stated that there is a huge number of female Gears of War players which is the reason why they added 4 playable female characters and pink gun variants to Gears of War 3.
Well, what else could he say? "Oh, yeah, my Gears games are just sausage-fests."
My wife's favorite games are MAG, Resistance 1-3 and Left 4 Dead 1&2.
LOL you joking right?
Nope. Not even joking a little bit. She has her own PS3 in the bedroom where she plays MAG and Resistance online. She also plays Left 4 Dead onine in split screen with me on my 360. She has her own Gold membership. She's pretty much a keeper. :)
ps3 lures in alpha males, xbox lures in 12 year olds
Alpha males? like you? LOL
Most the clans on this list from what I can tell play pc games more than consoles. http://www.ladygamers.com/l... Fragdolls (ubisoft sponsored girl clan) plays (for you exclusives nutjobs) killzone, halo, and gears of war. They also play pc gaming heavily.
Did not even read the article as the title sounded so gay, so childish. who the f has to time to write such crap after the systems have been out for so long. buy it dont buy it jeeez. it's like the whole life span of the wii the graphics and horse power was written about when it was clear it lacked compared to the other two but we never read articles on how great it was and how it expanded the market etc. I personally dont care about such trivia things and we need quality articles not some playground argument on paper
most powerful console,most sexy looking console (not like that crapbox wich copy every sony moves...360 slim anyone?)blu ray etc etc far superior tech,best and the most beautiful quality exclusives,tons of news IP's each year (while xbox are stuc kwith like 2 exclusives lol for the next 2 years lol)the console with the most first party's its normal that chicks gonna choose sony over xbox...not to mention sony is outselling the xbox for 2 years no worldwide (and when i mean worldwide i MEAN worldwide....talking to you americans who think that worldwide =U.S)devs are making games first to th eps3 now,sony will surpass the 360 around 2013,xbox is go third place sooner or later its a matter of time..no wonder with that low tech crap that keep the games behind
Steaming pile of Grammar dump.
Many girl's do play Halo, Quake 3 Arena/Quake 4, World of Warcraft, Counter-Strike 1.5/1.6, even in tournaments. But I know some who really do enjoy Heavy Rain, Uncharted 2, LittleBigPlanet, and ofc Super Mario.
personally i dnt knw not one girl in my town that has a 360 but i knw about 4 girls who got ps3 and 2 of them gat god of war, lbp, gt5 girl love p.s home also well two of um are dykes soo not sure if they count as girl but they gat vajay's so they girls 2 me even bought my slim 250gig frum a girl but good much girls play halo
One of my Girl Friends has a 360 and she's blooming good on COD and other shooters, pretty good on Forza as well....she would definately whip my butt
One Qoute From Article "[Women] do buy games, you know the female audience is growing, but they don’t buy these kind of games." I would rather a clear outline of what kinds of games he was referring to when he said these kinds of games. Heavy Rain was a very mature game and one that was played and enjoyed by a female friend of mine I lent her my PS3 and she completed the game and got me all the trophies she loves the game, but no matter what the games target audience is whos to know if it will truly be enjoyed by them. My ex loves FF, KH, NFS and she would sit and play shooters like TS and Halo with me she wasnt into games at first but she quickly grew to love my hobby and also turned it into her own. Hell I even had her playing Tekken and CVS Other females I have known liked, COD, Gears, Borderlands, Bomberman, UNO, Fable, Res, LBP, Sims and PSU. Female Gamers like any gamer would buy games based on word of mouth, trailers, box cover or advise giving to em by staff members at a games store, recommending a game based on the specifics of what the customer is looking for doesnt always work sometimes recommending games that people wouldnt normally play is a better option. But I aint going into this fanboy argument about PS have a more varied choice of games, especially when I got 3 bubbles left lol
its a female system
