17 pages of butthurt from cows claiming some type of victory for a console that singlehandedly lost massive market share and brand dominance, dozens of exclusives and numerous fiascos only to be roughly tied with a 7 year old console whos company sold only 20 million consoles last gen... this is pretty sad even by cow standards.... like claiming victory for falling off a horse and landing in shiit faster than the competition.... man these 7 years have really scrambled your brain huh?

if brain damage is ever contagious, i think i might get it just from reading all the cow rage in the last few days. :lol:

Depends on the DLC, i don't buy multiplayer maps, all the DLC i buy is offline because i don't game online,so NO, i don't rent my and i don't care about your opinion, you lost all credibility when you said you had to pay to back up your achievements on XBL, i suggest you go away and seriouslty change your attitude if you wanrt people to take you even remotely seriously.

360 all about the games....yeah 4-5 years ago.

Xbl is the better service.....yeah till you realised that you pay to use Free social networking features, video chat, achievement archive, pretty much everything. Rent your own games and dlc lol.

360 sells more...no it don't and never really did. It only had the lead because of it's earlier release (plus them dodgy systems MS flogged us).

Guess the truth does hurt PMSL.

360 otsold the Ps3 worldwide last year by 800,000 units so the Ps3 has not always been selling at a faster rate, and i don't rent my games, i buy them, i don't have to pay an XBL gold fee to play my games and there are a lot of games out there that don't require online Play at all, Assassins creed 3, Skyrim, Rage, Dragons dogma and a few games that you cannot even get on the Ps3 like the witcher 2, Gothic 4, Ego draconis, Risen and darkstar one to name but a few, And will you please stop trying to claim that you have to Pay to back up your achievements, YOU DON'T

i think the biggest mistake microsoft made this gen aside from RROD was not releasing or developing many games, it pretty much secured last place for itself

[QUOTE="kingtito"][QUOTE="maxon27"] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAE-Ui9OmFA Ouch Microsoft support confirming that a banned user must buy another xbox360 to get back online. Oh but don't tell me, it don't count because it don't suit you? Pmsl you 360 sheep are such sore losers.maxon27
So how many re-buys because of that then? How many PS3 re-buys because of YLOD? How many PS3 re-buys because of lasers going bad? You know what's sad is cows claiming ownage after saying sales don't matter for the past 6-7 years. What's also sad is claiming sales ownage on numbers just released by comparing them to numbers release almost 2 months ago. Cow are truly the saddest bunch on SWs

The number of ps3 from hardware failure was within the acceptable level. Xbox360 on the other hand BEFORE the extended 3 year warranty was 57%. Microsoft made a statement about the high level of failure and offered the 3 year warranty. No company would do that if they was within the acceptable level. It is a fact 360 was NOT within the acceptable level. http://www.gamesradar.com/xbox-failure-rates-are-reportedly-down-ps3-failure-rates-just-generation-comes-to-a-close/ Yeah bit of a different story don't you think.

maxon27, your point is still moot. You have no idea how many players were banned. Just like I don't know how many PS3's were sold to people who just wanted to use it as a Blu-Ray player.

Your point is BASELESS. Get over your conspiracy theory.

Guys a total Idiot, he tried claiming that you have to pay to back up your achievements on XBox live and that you are only renting your games on the 360, i proved him wrong on a number of occasions but he still Kept on saying the same Crap over and over, His user name should have been 'ostrich' because he clearly has his head buried in the Sand.

Cows jump the Gun and post figure without checking ther legitimacy, people research and find out that figures are combined Hardware sales, Cows Deny the truth and go into full on Rage damage control, seems to me that the only people who have a problem with both consoles being tied for sales are a few Lems and the vast majortiy of Cows, the problem with this is that it's so f***ing circular, it's the same thing time and again, Cows are just TOO predictable,lol Who really cares at the end of the day, Both consoles are a commercial success even if one of them isn't a financial success, both have a solid install base, Both have a reasonable amount of quality Exclusives and games.

It hasn't beat 360 sales yet.

Anyways, the PS3 has been kind of surprising given it's terrible launch. Too bad it has costed Sony far more than they got out of it.

So the Cows are trying to declare a Ruiz Victory for the PS3. What is a Ruiz Victory?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosie_Ruiz

Rosie Ruiz Vivas (born 1953, Havana, Cuba) is a Cuban American who achieved notoriety when she was declared the winner in the female category for the 84th Boston Marathon in 1980, only to have her title stripped after it was discovered that she had not run the entire course.

OMG YOU BOTS ARE DUMB.

@StormyJoe

So let me get this right. Your comparing someone buying a system for what ever purpose they want it for to a company randomly banning people with NO explanation to why? Baaaaaaaaa Baaaaaaaa some deluded sheep up in here.

First off,for the banning to get on to UK tv programme WATCHDOG who deal with unfair trading etc it has to be a very large number before they even look at it. This is a FACT.

Now when black ops 1 was released it was reported on uk radio station radio one that MILLIONS have been banned from xbl.

Now if you can't tell the difference between someone choosing to buy a system for what ever purpose to a company committing unlawful acts then their is truly something wrong with the xbox360 community? .

What a bunch of sad little people you are. Shocking!.

There are a number of issues here:

  1. You provide no evidence for the number of bannings.
  2. You provide no evidence for the number of people purchasing another 360, after said bannings.

Do you see these issues?

The funniest thing to me is that at no time did anyone stop and look at the road Sony took to get to an arguable second place tie. Back when this generation started the BEST case scenario people thought the Xbox could achieve was selling about the same number of systems as Sony. MS placed Sony in a position of either losing this generation badly, or losing TONS of money to keep up. Sony didn't even put enough pressure on MS to make them lower their prices any significant amount in what 5 years now? Can you imagine how the numbers would look if MS had decided to cut in to their profits on the 360 and aggressively outprice the PS3 the entire gen? MS could have had a true 149 or even 99 dollar 360 YEARS ago and still not have been losing as much money per unit as sony at any given time. Instead MS chose to maintain their profits while still keeping Sony at arms length. MS could have buried Sony long ago if they chose to, but why bother when you're making money and still forcing your competitor to lose money. The only thing Sony did this generation was show that they were willing to bite the bullet and half kill themselves to keep the PS3 viable. Any patting on the back for the PS3 "coming back" is foolish IMO.

Your number are always screwed up i have prove that many times.

Oh wait $20 more for batteries and charger,how are those $60 a year for online play.? How is your 4th 360.? How many weeks without playing because of RROD or did you had a back up one.?

i was talking in my own personal experience, the 360 HAS cost me less than a Ps3 woul have,Why do you always list Optional items to boost the cost, i have no use for a HD-DVD add on, i bought my console to play games, not watch movies, i pay 50p a week for batteries and i have had a year and a half of Live, still cheaper than the launch Price of a Ps3, listen dude, when are you going to get it, For me personally the 360 has still been cheaper than the cost of a Ps3, how am i figures messed up when i am talking about my own personal Experience and stop saying you proved me wrong many times, Thats just BS pure and simple.

MS loss 3.1 billion dollars this gen that would have kill any profits and any chance of getting any. The xbox 360 has been price lower the entire generation from $100 on launch on the best model to $200 cheaper how much more aggressive could they get.? Aggressive pricing did not save the original xbox which had better hardware and HDD out of the box and was price like the PS2 costing MS 4 billions in losses in just 25 million units sold.

MS placed Sony in a position of either losing this generation badly, or losing TONS of money to keep up. Sony didn't even put enough pressure on MS to make them lower their prices any significant amount in what 5 years now? Can you imagine how the numbers would look if MS had decided to cut in to their profits on the 360 and aggressively outprice the PS3 the entire gen? MS could have had a true 149 or even 99 dollar 360 YEARS ago and still not have been losing as much money per unit as sony at any given time. Instead MS chose to maintain their profits while still keeping Sony at arms length. MS could have buried Sony long ago if they chose to, but why bother when you're making money and still forcing your competitor to lose money. The only thing Sony did this generation was show that they were willing to bite the bullet and half kill themselves to keep the PS3 viable. Any patting on the back for the PS3 "coming back" is foolish IMO.

MS loss 3.1 billion dollars this gen that would have kill any profits and any chance of getting any. The xbox 360 has been price lower the entire generation from $100 on launch on the best model to $200 cheaper how much more aggressive could they get.? Aggressive pricing did not save the original xbox which had better hardware and HDD out of the box and was price like the PS2 costing MS 4 billions in losses in just 25 million units sold.

lol I love when you try to make some sort of sense el tormo.

Media Card Reader no available on 360. 60GB HDD the xbox 360 one was 20 GB and any HDD was $100 so you need 2 more to match the PS3 one. Free online play on 360 $50 dollars per year by that time.
