Why is Xbox considered the 'dudebro shooter/sports' console when...

#11nis750Posted 5/11/2014 11:16:57 PM
because The playstation brand has been exist since 1994 and it have created alot of different franchise. Rpgs,shooters,racings,rythm games, Platformer, interactive games, experimental games,ect

and has build fans across all generation with games like Final Fantasy, Metal gear solid, Resdentevil,Parrapa the rapper, Twisted Metal, Crash Bandicoot, Sypro the dragon, Fear effect, syphon filter, Megaman x, Soul blade, Killzone, God of war, Ico, Shadow of the collosus, Uncharted, ect

well the xbox had a great library( but small) Like the bioware games, jet set radio future,Ninja Gaiden, Halo, Project gothan racing,Fusion Frenzy,etc

The thing is most of the xbox games were still a niche except for Halo. The majority of xbox player only played Halo(Subjective just observation)

and Then to reinforce the stereotype Microsoft market the 360 with call of duty as the best place to play Call of duty games because of the online and all that.

By E3 2007 to E3 2013. maybe e3 2014. They always show call of duty at their conferences.

Hence the reputation of Dudebro shooter. It doesnt help with games series like Gears of war

But anyways it getting late i would be more able to explain with you guys with a beer in ours hands. Cheers

Sony caters to other genres though, like JRPG/other Japanese simulation/rhythm/wacky games.

Xbox doesn't have much else going for it. Doesn't help that it's (Xbox/Microsoft) associated with Doritos and Mountain Dew, both of which give bonuses for FPSs like CoD.

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?


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.


Reading comprehension. Use it.


Using that "logic" Resonance of Fate is a dude bro shooter.

Common sense. Use it.

Because most of MS exclusive game sales come from just Halo and Gears, and all the multi platform FPS games sold better on 360 (although now they sell better on PS4 like every multi platform game).
While on playstation Sony's exclusives have a lot more variety and they all have significant fan bases, and none of them really rule over everything else like Halo does on xbox. and as for multi platform games most franchises that are not FPS like GTA, AC, Batman, Final Fantasy etc. sold better on PS3.

So yes the stereotype is more or less true, and MS's marketing reinforces it further.

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


While we're making up statistics, that post is 200% inaccurate according to a poll conducted on the moon.
