x360 is one year more on market of course it has more games. more games in every genre? ps3 exclusives in every genre are better than x360 exclusives:

MGS4>splinter cell conviction << sure
GT5>forza 3 << nope
soon killzone 3>halo reach << likely not
infamous>crackdown << nope
demon's souls>fable 2 << nope
mlb 10 the show>? << yes
heavy rain>alan wake << no way
ratchet&clank>banjo kazooie << yes
siren blood course>? << what? who cares
uncharted 2>gears of war << different game types.. and no
god of war 3>ninja blade << ha ha.. Is it really worth comparing these two

If we are to play these games

MGS4 > Splinter Cell
GT5 > Forza 3 (Don't know...haven't played Forza 3, but I'll defer to Metacritic, Forza 3 is at the very least a more polished game, although maybe not as ambitious)
Killzone 3 > Reach (Well technically, I liked Reach marginally more than 2, it's not out of the realm of possibility.)
Infamous > Crackdown (Don't know due to not playing Crackdown....but by all accounts, it seems like Infamous 2 will be better than Crackdown 2, and Metacritic has the first for both series at about even.)
Demon's Souls > Fable 2 (I would say Demon's Souls was more engrossing and addicting than Fable III was in its first couple hours, but I'll defer to Metacritic, right now Fable III seems fun, but not like I want to beat this game 4 times, fun like Demon's Souls)
MLB 10 > Ok?
Heavy Rain > Alan Wake ---> Slightly preferred Alan Wake
Ratchet > Banjo (Sure)
Uncharted 2 > Gears of War (Fuck yes...sue me)
God of War 3 > Ninja Blade (Well....no contest)

"The bottom line is, 360 sells more, has more games, has higher rated games, and has more game sales. The rest is just cherry-picking to fit one's needs/arguments."

x360 sold more units so far than ps3 thanks to:

1 year headstart(16 months in europe)
200$ cheaper in beginning (now it has 100$ cheaper model)
piracy from beginning
media bashing ps3
trillions of dollars spent on marketing by microsoft
RROD 54%-everybody bought at least 2 x360's because of it
bans

but ps3 is selling better:

ps3 45 million sold in 4 years=11 million per year
x360 50 million sold in 5 years=10 million per year

According to Sony, they have sold 3.5 million consoles through September ?10s second quarter?which brings its total units sold through 2010 to roughly 8 million. In comparison, Microsoft has sold roughly 5.5 million consoles in 2010, a number which is staggeringly lower than Sony?s      http://www.playstationuniver/

i always hear about this year head start.     

so why is it that the Wii seemed to have no problem passing up the 360?

in third quarter ps3 outsold x360 by 700k despite x360 having slim effect and halo reach   http://www.gamespot.com/pages/forums/show_msgs.php?topic_id=27493248


and about game sales. truth is microsoft didn't release software numbers in years (i wonder why) so we can only speculate.

i agree. x360 has more games. those games are released in 2006. before ps3 launch. ps3 has highest rated exclusives:

uncharted 2 metacritic 96
little big planet metacritic 95

best console graphics ever: uncharted 2, god of war 3, gran turismo 5, killzone 2

that shouldn't matter.      people will go get a second job for a PS3.   seems to me Sony has nobody to blame but themselves for such a high price.

and all your links won't mean anything when we see total sales numbers for World Wide at the end here... and see that the 360 beat the PS3 world wide in 2010.

and out of curiosity emil... to help me better understand you.    what part of the world you from?   you here in the USA?  or over seas?   just wondering.


ps... and to add...   what are the numbers of PS3 owners that bought their PS3's because of RRoD on the 360?    since you have an exact number of how many 360 fans rebought a 360 after theirs RRoD'd....  i've seen on the web that people that had their 360 break down on them, say they're going to buy a PS3 now instead.     so see that... RRoD helps Sony sales too.  ;)

i'm from europe where x360 doesn't exist. here in croatia everybody who bought x360 bought it because it had piracy and ps3 didn't.

you really think that x360 outsold ps3 by 2,5 million in last three months of 2010?

let's say you bought x360. you also bought 10-20 games for it. you have many friends onlive, gamerscore is big and than you get RROD. what will you do? sell all games, forget about gamerscore and efforts you put in it, forget about all friends you had onlive, and probably you would have few months left with gold subscription-that would be like throwing money away, and it's pretty hard to accept that you bought a wrong console (wrong because of failure rate)

Neither of the other companies have been forced to cut prices as much as Sony has with PS3.

They lost a lot of money on PS3 hardware. Stringer even said he doesn't ever think they’ll make up those losses on PS3. It got so bad, studios were questioning their support (Activision).

So after dominating North America for a decade, it’s OK that Sony can’t gain market-share here because they’re doing slightly better in other places?
