    Yep exactly.^ And the sales gap is pretty narrow so its not like MS is dominating the console market or anything. Yet despite that all we keep hearing is "but teh sales." Thats why the hardcore 360 fans only like to talk about US numbers. lol

    Whats better about it? Cross game voice chat? I've used both services extensively and thats about the only thing that I can see.

    Better features is better features. Live is a helluva lot better than Sony's online integration. Oh wait, they don't have that.

    Yeah I agree but if youre just looking to jump into a game and play online then it really isnt much different. I guess if youre somebody who is a hardcore online multiplayer guy and not much else than yeah I could see the features appealing to them. But if youre somebody who mostly plays SP and only does MP time to time then PSN does the job nicely and for free.

    In that regard, you pay for either of them. Which is why I do just that.

    ITs mostly USA people that give shit about numbers.
    Most threads started to do with sales numbers are made by Americans, I have noticed this many times over the last 5 or so years I have been a member.

    Ad to be honest I really do not give a shit who sells the most as long as I have fun.

    Sony keeps neck and neck because MS cares more about profits than utterly dominating the competition.

    Remember, the 360 became profitable in 08, MS could have easily reduced its profit margins (or even sold the 360 at cost) to expedite the price reductions which would have utterly gutted sony and likely made a significant dent in wii sales. Instead MS decided to maintain profits as much as possible and rely on end of year sales/promotions to give consumers a temp. discount.

    MS is satisfied with their performance this gen, they essentially consider it over.

    Funny how people like to mention how Americans like to talk numbers when I hear a lot of people still talking about Japan and its importance in console sales.

    Yes and Yes

    Too Human hit MS hard. It cost between 60-80 million and it failed big time.
    Alan Wake sold like crap on the 360 and it was in development for quite some time. PC saved Remedy's ass by making the Alan Wake series profitable.
    Shadow Run failed
    Crackdown 2 failed

    Those titles are why MS deemed it wasn't worth sinking money into a new i.p because they seem to fail everytime. Gears, fable, Halo and forza(and 3rd party of course) worked well for MS but the 360 was on the decline before their kinect gamble paid off and the ps3 was outselling it by a few million each year. If kinect would have failed, the 360 would be in 3rd place now. But since we are obviously not talking about kinect/move or psn/live("10's of millions"), read below.

    For example Jaffe said that Twisted Metal was profitable. So despite the game apparently not selling that well, it at least catered to those old school TM fans and possibly found new fans in there too.

    It's as though if a game doesn't sell millions of copies it's a failure, which is not the case. I think they should be commended for green lighting risky projects, or games that will clearly not achieve huge amounts of revenue.

    Sure there is some stupidity in amongst a lot of decisions they make, and their marketing could be a lot better as has already been mentioned. But game-wise the more the better. Sony already has their big selling games
    Adding on to Nitey's post and answering your "failed support" question when it comes to "10's of millions" big budget games on the 360.

    Microsoft's exclusives that received sequels/prequels are gears(new i.p), halo, fable, forza. Feel free to add any missing data. Correct me if I'm wrong, Yung.

    Sony's exclusives that received sequels/prequels. Infamous(new i.p.), Killzone, Little big planet(new i.p.), God of War, Resistance(new i.p.), Yakuza, gran turisimo, Uncharted(new i.p.), MLB: The show, Motorstorm(new i.p.), Ratchet & Clank, Heavy Rain(new i.p.).

    The developers of Infamous, killzone and heavy rain and uncharted are being allowed to make a new i.p.

    Failed support(from your big budget "10's of millions" perspective)? Hell yes. That's one big budget new i.p. for 7 years that the people decided was worthy of a damn on the 360.

    Two4DaMoney nailed it. 'Nuff said. And as long as Sony keeps making exclusives like this one I'm more than happy.(scroll down a bit after the jump) http://www.psu.com/forums/showthread...=1#post5961612

    again. true.

Trying to overshadow something I brought up that has merit. I love your double standards.
    you are not understanding my point at all, where as F34R appears to.

    TBH I'm surprised the whole RROD fiasco didn't do more damage to MS's image. There was a time when every other days my friends who owned 360s were getting RRODs it seemed. Most of them have switched to PS3s now.

    Now this right here is thumbs up for me although I will say I'm glad for Xbox 360 in the market it keeps Sony and Nintendo in check(Sony more so) cause now they realize never to do what they did again with PS3 or at least I hope they do.

    As a gamer I love playing, but I'm not going to waste my money on $600 or $500 console for that matter when that could buy me something else or go to something else more worth my time.

    Sorry for the double post, but Sony didn't pounce on that when they should have cause the moment you tell parents a product is defective they'll probably buy the next best thing, but now that I think about it again next best thing was Wii(much lower cost at that point then either PS3 or 360.

    The only thing I hope Sony and Microsoft learned from this stop releasing so many damn SKU's that made me mad more than a little cause you confuse people not everyone is a gamer, and trying to explain this to parents who don't give a crap is even worse. Because with them they just want the best one not something inferior if you catch my drift.

    Have to disagree. In my years here it has been an equal range from Europe Japan and America. Ironically the person that makes most of the sales threads here is from Japan.

    I'm saying that's what people think. They feel paying the 50 a year makes it unhackable

    Yeah, well there are people that believe that mac's are immune to all malware and are superior in every way to windows pc's. (despite using the same hardware components).

    Ya that was my point, I'm not arguing if it has or hasn't been hacked. A lot of people bought into live/360 because "THEY" felt it was unhackable
