I could just jump in and totally trash 7th's arguement, but he wrote too huge of a comment and a number of them for me to get to everything.


Basically, all I got to say is.... The 360 didn't do no where near as bad as you think it did 7th. You snark about how most of the 360's exclusives this year were shared with the PC when that is not true at all. Alan Wake, Fable 3, Crackdown 2, and Halo Reach represent the large bulk of the 360 exclusives released this year. None of those are on the PC. Also, if we are going by "true" exclusives. You can say goodbye to MLB 10 the Show as that game is on 3 platforms, making GOW3 the only AAA exclusive released this year for the PS3.

There was also another thing...I think you said something about how the 360 outdid the PS3 by "only" this much bla bla bla. Well it's funny because every PS3 fanboy in the friggen known universe were harping on about how Kinect would fail and the 360 would loose 2nd place by 2011.


Other than that, I don't really give a shit. Personally the best games this year were mostly multiplatform. Played the hell out of Mass Effect 2 and AC:Brotherhood. Looking to pick up Red Dead Redemption later this year.

Oh and happy new years 7th!!

Funny how so many of the PSN games 7th listed score in the 50's and 60's on Metacritic.

Funny the GT5 sold almost half the copies of GT4 its lifetime considering that GT4 has GT5 beat in sales on a weekly basis.

Edit: Also funny how misleading 7th is being with his SC:C statement.

"It's safe to say that we drew inspiration from a lot of different sources - both in games and out of games," Redding explained.

2nd Edit: Psychological Action Thriller, Psychological Thriller Adventure ?

Fable III is an action RPG.

Okay, allow me to quote from that same article:

"Obviously we took a good, heavy look at the way Uncharted works too."



And as for GT4 vs GT5, with PS3 having a smaller userbase, I present to you the "Orly?" moment of the week:


Week 1: 2,523,055
Week 2: 1,000,378
Week 3: 510,176
Week 4: 326,608
Week 5: 231,662
Week 6: 178,044
Week 7: 137,261
Week 8: 120,989
Week 9: 102,768
Week 10: 92,089
Ten week total: 5,223,030


Gran Turismo 5:

Week 1: 2,191,588
Week 2: 729,245
Week 3: 617, 341
Week 4: 573,729
Week 5: 509,602
Five week total: 4,621,505

End result, not only were you wrong about GT4 consistently outselling GT5 week by week, but in just 5 weeks GT5 is within 601,525 copies of surpassing GT4's ten week total. And these numbers don't include Christmas week.

Game. Set. Match.





One thing I see wrong with this is that GT4 came out in the beginning of the year where as GT5 came out in the peak buying season. that said it would be interesting to see GT5 legs in late january and onward.

Jeez people, I just don't get it. Who really cares about which machine is the best? Different strokes and all that. If you like the feel of the controller and satisfied with the games your able to purchase, then?? who really cares? If another platform has a great game which isn't applicable to what I have...well then all power to you. There's plenty of great games out there for all the platforms and I just find it so absurd that people take the time to flame one another and take satisfaction that another person may not be able to play a particular game on their platform. Let just all have a fun time playing these great games.
