Completely unsurprised. 360 is a baws on Black Friday/Thanksgiving.

Hm, link doesn't work for me...

Nevertheless, I'm sure this will escalate quickly, the title itself is enough to cause instant butthurt in some people we know and love! :P

EDIT: Link works fine now...

Dat thing will probably dominate christmast as well.

It's not combining PS3 + Wii U sales. Twice of all the consoles, and also outsold the Wii U + Wii combined figures.

I have 14 Xbox 360 exclusives right here. Why would people buy a console for 14 games and to get ripped off by XBL?

Console with the best library (according to both gamespot and metacritic), best online service, best controller, best multiplats .....

Seems like a good reason to buy the 360;)

We have come to the point where xbox sells more than all other systems combined (Wii + WiiU + PS3), it is really funny

Why even have a system wars section, when there is nothing to actually rival xbox anymore

But obviosuly with games like Halo 4, Fable Jounrey and Witcher 2 (and not crap like .... wonderbook) these sales are expected

True but given the current global financial climate and that we are reaching market saturation, its impressive that they sold that many units.

Its the way it uses the reviews to grade a game. One bad review get really harm a games Meta's score.

Indeed, these sales are really exceptional, as we're approaching the end of the gen. At this point, I expected they'd slow down to a crawl, but we aren't there yet...

Agreed. I wonder how their success will transfer over to the next gen though.

The console will have to priced attractively, no one will pay stupid money because don't have as much disposable income this time around.

Seriously?

It's an aggregate, it mashes a bunch of reviews who are written in different ways and have different standards into a single number. It doesn't take those differences into the account, and as such, it is not to be taken seriously...

There are also inconistencies in the number of reviews per game, possibilities for the "no-name" sites to inflate or damage the score, and problems in converting "1-5" review scale into "1-100" scale. I could think of more, but I'm feeling a bit lazy at the moment...

In conclusion, I'd take a well-written review from a source I trust any day over that aggregate mess. The only thing MC can be good for is having links for many review sites into one place, for easy access...

You're talking about "troll" reviews, right? If a reviewer gave a bad honest review to a game, it is welcome to be published on Metacritic. We don't want lies and bias, do we?

I like to have many reviews on a single page so I can go through them and reading them. A very good way to judge a game. I'd do this for personal reasons, not for SW.

True, a $600 console would be a recipe for the disaster this time around. Furthermore, I don't think devs will focus on raw hardware power much, as this gen provided strong proof how that doesn't matter too much to the general audiences. That's a win-win for console vendors, the production costs are cheaper and they can make profit per unit sold more easier, while the consumer is left with an affordable product...

#50 Posted by GamerwillzPS (8530 posts) -

What about GameRankings? I've heard that arkephonic said something about them having rules to balance things out, which is something that Metacritic lacks according to Rocker. Well, I don't know which website is better. Gotta use GameRankings more to see how it compare with Metacritic.
