1.26m for no games and Xbox Live fees. Can someone explain clearly to me why?

GamerwillzPS

herp derp look at me, I'm a SNIPER wannabe!!!!!

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

OMG it sucks right! Only being able to buy 14 games which at one point totaled at $840. :roll:

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.

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...

On the other hand what else can they offer but raw horsepower...I'm not biting on any media related bullsh!t...gen is exhausted ..only the excitement of something really really new or powerful will be enough to draw in hordes of buyers ...Wii U being a case in point ...Although I could be wrong I dont expect this Nintendo iteration to maintain any kind of sustained enthusiasm...I really believe a higher priced and more powerful option would be wise given the wealth of possibilites now available to manufacturers to sell their product through subscription or alternate financing options ...Works for phones and given that MS as an example could keep selling the 360 at bargain basement prices knowing the enthusiasts would be willing to pay a premium for power...I know I would

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.

GamerwillzPS

I honestly have no idea about GameRankings and their standards, so can't comment on it, hell, can't even remember ever visiting that site, MC entirely overshadowed it in popularity...

But I have a feeling that even if they have some rules in place, they must be fairly loose...

Those 14 games are the only good games out of 360's library in my book, so...

Another will be added at Christmas, which is Halo 4. Couldn't give a toss about Forza Horizon.

Halo 4.

Halo is an IP with one of the strongest followings even compared to multiplats. What'd you expect?

I know that everybody have their own opinions and tastes.

But I don't buy mediocre games. 14 is small but sweet.

Maybe people assess value individually? You know like as in personal tastes. I dont like many JRPG's. I am not confused as to why others do. It's because they are not me.

The only reason 360 sold well is because of the 200 dollar Kinect budle.

Hmm not to mention the huge batch of multiplats that are arguably better on the 360 to the point that for all intents and purposes may as well have been exclusives...But I guess you bought those for your ps3...Your cowness is showing Willy

Nothing really, just pointing out the shallow amount of 360 exclusives since launch. It's oversaturated by Kinect which is a real shame. I call them shovelware.

The news about Microsoft setting up a new core studio somewhere in Canada for their next console is good news, but I'm not holding my breath though. Remember how Microsoft just suddenly dropped core in 2009? Knowing Microsoft, I'm being cautious with their shady practices.

games you chose to buy does not point out anything other than that those were the games you chose to buy. i own 3 ps3 exclusives. do you see me going around saying that it only has three games?

So PSAS did less then 90k combined, that game bomb. Vita didn't do to hot too, did pretty bad actually.

Shallow amount of exclusives to you, a very important distinction you fail to recognize.

Just because you don't want to acknowledge that the 360 has just as many high rated exclusives as the PS3 (According to GameSpot) and more games period (according to reality) doesn't make your version of reality real and endlessly claiming "but I only bought 14 exclusives so the 360 has no games!" (as obviously contradictory as that is) won't change reality.

I would love to get a 360 myself to compliment my PC, but my friend owns three of them, so I just mooch :P

I think at this point, though, I'll just wait for the next Xbox considering most people speculate it'll show up at next year's E3.

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;)

Counting this cheap XBL titles again to help your argument? The PS3 has had a superior library since 2008, best controller? If you like holding a hamburger. Best multipalts? 90% are near identical and just as many superior ones the 360 has had this year the PS3 has had just as many if not more. The 360 is casual garbage geared toward kinect with no br player and a crappy interface not to mention the online is a joke as PS+ utterly obliterates it in value. RE5 and BIoshock 2 for free? What does XBL give you ? A chance to play games which PSN does for free.

Err No they didnt, those numbers are just from the US. The 360 got 1.25 mill in NA the PS3 got 850k thats not counting the rest of the world in which the PS3 probably came close to equaling it. Whats funny is the PS3 launched at $150 dollars more gave the 360 a year head start and they still managed to tie them .

No it hasn't. The PS3 only overtook the 360 in 2011 and the 360 came back to tie it this year. And that's only on GameSpot. On Metacritic, the 360 has more high rated games than the PS3.

Best controller? Meh, this one is subjective but as far as I'm concerned, the 360 controller destroys the PS3 controller in comfort and ergonomics.

Not only does the 360 have a huge lead over the PS3 with PC/360 titles that the PS3 doesn't have, most multiplats this gen have favored the 360. It's just pure fact.

Lots of opinions and untruths in this mess so I'm not even going to bother.
