MS bringing up the rear in console biz since its started

Sony Fanboys like you who's sole intention on this board is to troll know all about bringing up the rear.


PS3 and xbox are on par no matter what fanboys or trolls on either side think. Though wii sold the most it was b/c of kids and old people

PS3 = XBOX360 > Wii U > Wii

IMO

I agree, and some of my favorite PS3 games are PSN games. So I have to wonder how colossally stupid somebody has to be to ignore a game simply because it's not on a disc.

So much butt hurt in this board about the PS3 surpassing Xbox. It's funny how fanboys hold it high that they're ahead, then once they fall behind it doesn't matter anymore.

Considering that the ps3 came out a year later than the xbox 360 and had an arguably inferior online this is really good for Sony. You got to give them credit where credit is due.


While the 360 still gives the better online multiplayer experience and still has the best downloadable exclusives (non-retail), the Sony's PSN has surpassed Xbox Live in all other ways by now. More and better discounts, rest of the content is about equal. And PS+ gives a whole lot more value for your money than Xbox Live Gold.

Xbox Live Gold has become pretty stagnant by now. MS doesn't really give a f*** anymore about providing the best online service.

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

Although not directed at me, I don't count arcade titles (not because they are unworthy) because they are not full fledged games in the traditional sense and both consoles are constantly pumping out gems. Lots to choose from.

Regardless, here was your list Sarlacc:

Halo 4 (already counted this under the Halo umbrella)
Forza Horizon (see comment above)
Dust AET (solid)
Sine Mora (Friendly FYI: this is on ps3 as well)
Trials Evolution (solid)
Hybrid (game has middling reviews, but I won't completely dismiss it)
Splunky
Minecraft
Witcher 2 (I'll count it)
FEZ (solid)
Mark of the Ninja (Great game that I want to play badly)
Alan Wake American Nightmare (middling reviews...hard to count)

So 4-6 good arcade titles (which I was not counting/disputing in the first place) and 1 additional full fledged game in Witcher 2.

Still (unfortunately) embarrassing for a full year. But you have to blame Microsoft for focusing way too much of their damn time on the wholly disappointing Kinect. I'm still embarrassed at what they did to Star Wars (dancing? Really???)

I still don't get why people say why Xbox Live is a better MP experience. They both use the same servers and thus have the same ping rate. The only difference is the system itself, which neither processes internet at different speeds. Online is purely the same between the two systems when you have your modem set IP right. Call of Duty, Battlefield, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and more can and will confirm this.

You got to give them credit where credit is due.

Xbox sold - 25 Million
PS2 sold - 150 million

Xbox 360 sold 75 Million(end of 2013)
PS3 sold 76 Million(end of 2013)

Market share gained for MS
Marketshare lost for Sony.

Yeah you have to give credit where credit is due.

Also MS can at least say they sold the most consoles in North America by end of 2013. And I include wii in this, 360 should surpass the Wii in NA by end of the year. PS3 is way behind. It's Japan that will propel PS3 over 360 by the end.
