Sony has an exclusive sports series, 'MLB: The Show' and more first party shooters or games with guns in general as primary weapons (like Rachet & Clank) than Nintendo and Microsoft COMBINED?
On GameFAQs Any criticism=trolling, ports/remakes are bad unless its something YOU want ported/remade, and anything that's popular that you dislike = overrated.

Because Call of Duty, Halo, Gears had more of the stereotypical dude bros in their online community, which was 90% of XBL.

I might be wrong but I also think it's because first-person shooters sell/sold the most on the 360 whereas the PS3 had more of a variety of best sellers.

Also, just because a game has guns doesn't make it a shooter.

Blame Microsoft for making the Xbox brand known for being famous for multiplayer dudebro shooters.

Plus Ratchet & Clank doesn't count, as it's NOT an FPS, it's a 3D Run & Gun Platformer that's been around since the PS2 days.

The stereotype in this case is actually true.
They call me Hadouken because I'm down right fierce.

Because TC 'dude bros' is to Xbox like 'Weeabos' is to Playstation. I wouldn't take either term very seriously because they both seek to completely define a person by what type of video game they like.
