Saw the list earlier. It looks accurate but the numbers seem off.

Probably similar for the PS3.

@Indicud: Only 68 posts to go before you can legally create a thread in System Wars!

Halo, Call of Duty and Battlefield are VERY popular series. Is it that surprising that they would sell well?

GTA V isn't on that list so I'm not taking it seriously.

This.

Shooters became the most popular genres this past gen, therefore it follows that the top selling games on consoles are also shooters (for the most part at least).

I'm not quite sure that reading comprehension is your strong suit, since every single one of your threads so far has been locked, with the reason clearly outlined each time, and yet you persist.

@Blabadon: doubt it.

TLOU

GOW

UNCHARTED

GRAN TURISMO

INFAMOUS (Might be)

LITTLE BIG PLANET

would be on the list

@charizard1605: let's face it even locked threads would be better than the shit you spew in your own.

I agree with you. Pity the mods won't.

@charizard1605: It would appear you have a natural ability to "spread" the mad cow disease on SW lol

Yep, The Xbox is the PC Wanabe console. Ironically now PC Gaming has alot of Diversity. Things have changed haven't they. Plus The US is The Xbox's only major Territory and you know how Americans are about their Guns. :D

Well that's a result of when in 2009, MS went upwards of 65% casual with Kinect(lol) after they dropped core.

some of those best selling FPSs are same on the PS3's best selling games, Xbox 360 gets more FPSs simply because they produced more themselves, plus games like FIFA sell better on PS3 since PS3 is bigger internationally and everyone outside US loves commie football

if you just count "dude-bro shooters" and not FPSs the Xbox 360 has 13 in the top 15 games and PS3 has 12... again due to commie football being prominent in the wordwide market, I know threads like this get created with an unspoken intention of acting like cows have refined taste in games, they don't really do anything to reinforce that
