How can that possibly be true? Top 10 selling 360 and PS3 games:


1 GTA4
2 COD4 - shooter
3 MGS4 -shooter Stealth/Action Adventure
4 MS
5 R1 -shooter
6 AC
7 COD 5 - shooter
8 GT5
9 Uncharted - shooter Action Adventure
10 LBP


1 Halo 3 - shooter
2 COD 4 - shooter
3 GTA 4
4 GOW - shooter
5 COD 5 -shooter
6 GOW 2 -shooter
7 AC
8 Forza 2
9 GH3
10 LIJ

So, 5 shooters each? There's no argument there.


there are alot of reasons, first is that Halo 3 is a launch tittle and people who bought the xbox bought it cause it was the only AAA tittle available , Second Xbox owners love shooters most so its no suprise that the commercially succesful Gears was selling.

Ps3 owners however are varied , alot of them like RPG's and some like racers, sports, adventure ...ect the shooter fans are little compared to the PC and xbox 360 but they did grow overtime.


Halo 3 launched 2 years after launch.

Gears 1 was the first AAA title if I remember correctly.


I 100% with your list edit though. Uncharted is not a shooter and neither is MGS4.

It is just like how Tomb Raider wasn't considered a shooter before.

iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.
