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

Yeah, the definition came from Urban dictionary, it was most likely written by a beta.


Do you even realize how stupid the concept of alpha and beta is? We don't live in the damn jungle. You'd think people in a gaming board would be more intelligent than this. Self-proclaimed "alphas" are some of most insecure bi**es one can find. I don't know how things work in the US but to the rest of the world this doesn't exist. If you explained this to the average European woman you would come off as a man-child.

you dont understand what alpha is

proclaiming yourself alpha does not make you alpha

and it most certainly exists everywhere

See the folks that buy Xbox games at your local game store. The majority of them will be walking out with either Halo, Gears, CoD, or some sports game in their hands.

because "XBOX" is and always was a FPS fatties' heaven.

Take the FPS away and the Xbox has nothing but MILF Kinect games and kids shovelware.

It is so sad. I remember the original xbox. It had Jade Empire, Kotor, Morrowind, Deus Ex and yes Halo. Something went wrong.
I REMEMBER SHENMUE AND PANZER DRAGOON ORTA! And now I moved to Sony.

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?


IIRC, shooters sell more on the Xbox. Just compare the CoD sales

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


that.

it all started with halo on the original xbox, but got out of control with call of duty/gears ect.

Baseball isn't a sport unless you're a dinosaur, but Sony does have some loyal dinosaur fans. Ratchet and Clank isn't dudebro, even the original Super Mario Bros. (NES) has better fireflower/shooting mechanics than most FPS games (you have the time the shots or else it'll bounce over your target, casuals can still just use point blank range though), doesn't make it dudebro.

The real reason is the Xbox has media features that are inferior outside of the US, so the rest of us are jealous and get back by insulting americans as being dudebros.

It always felt like to me. (and of course this is subjective) that PlayStation had a lot more of a wide selection of different games to choose from, and if I wanted even more I could import a game from another Region with no issues.

Not so different from the 360 list I imagine. The 360 may also have more "COD" sales because it was out for a bit longer than the PS3 and had a higher install base for a long time. But don't let facts get in the way of anything....... continue on.
