Halo is a huge franchise.
PS3 has a smaller install base
Microsoft advertises better
Some PS3s are just used as Blu-ray players.

Many Xbox360 owners pirate their games. - I think this can offset the above bolded reason no?

 


Honestly i havent met a 360 user who pirates games tho they are out there, they just arent a huge group like 10% of users, maybe they are like 1-2 % tops , 400k-800k users



I Hate the fact that all these pillows are contaminated by retard!!

I'm not removing franchise. I'm answering the OP's question:

The reason PS3 exclusives are selling so badly compare to Xbox360 is because the the 360 has Gears of War and Halo.

I dare you to challenge my stupid logic!

edit: Just to make this clearer" Stupid questions deserve stupid answers"




Ps3 owners are cheap ... guess they only buy from gamestop

Im attached to you. Is that because of the 360?

No, the 360 hates you.


I bet you put lipstick on your Xbox 360 and take it to bed. Only now you're jealous that maybe 360 likes me more than you!

Just because Yana likes you more doesn't mean that 360 does!

Tim likes me more as well.

Tease.

Looking at the top sellers from ps3 and comparing it with xbox 360 it is clear that ps3 exclusives DO NOT sell that well (compared to xbox exclusives) Here are a few examples:

Uncharted-3.10                                                                                       Gears of war- 6.04mil

Uncharted2-3.13                                                                                     Gears of war 2- 5.66 mil

Killzone2- 2.25                                                                                         Halo 3- 10.93 mil

Resistance-3.68

Resistance 2- 1.85

Halo 3 sold more than Killzone 2, Resistance and Resistance2 put together!!! Why is this? 

The question should be : Why are PS3 exclusive not selling as well as 360'S halo or Gears?

Now, if you put Gears in there, you have to put MGS4 which is on its way to 5 million plus.

The only PS3 first party game that really sells a lot is GT and it's not out yet, but notice how PS3 exclusives are getting better and bigger, that's what I care about.

 

I agree with you on that one.  To some "people," a game is not successful unless it sells like halo or gears which i think is freaking retarded.  Also if you want to know why Ps3 exclusives dont sell like 360 exclusives just look at the right side of Zedex post.  All the 360 has is halo and gears.  Now the ps3 has MGS4, Uncharted series, resistance series, killzone 2, LBP, infamous, Heavy Rain, God of War 3 and MANYY MORE.  Look at other 360 exclusives that DONT sell like halo and gears(like ME2).  And Zedex you say those are the top sellers from the ps3, but WHERE IS MGS4(5m+) or LBP(4m i believe)?



Currently playing

MLB 09: The Show(PS3)

With the exception of Gears and Halo, exclusives actually perform better on the PS3. Once GT5 is released there will a PS3 game that will most likely compete with Halo's sales. I don't really understand how you can say PS3's exclusives perform badly.

Tim likes Yana more than both of us, but he let me touch his 360. I bet you haven't touched his 360, only his filthy PS3 slim.

Exclusive games is clearly selling more on X360 than PS3 but lately PS3 had done lot better.



not that I'm endorsing this, but someone needs to make a thread titled

"why are x360 exclusives selling so badly compared to Wii?"

I mean, Microsoft won the generation by getting to 10m first in the US. They even announced it. (heck, they still have it on their own website - http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2008/may08/05-14360First10PR.mspx ) Their exclusives should have easily sold more if they won.

As for the real answer, it is diversification. If you moved those 4m extra sales from Japan to the US you'd probably see all the shooters rise in sales by a bit, while other games popular in Japan would fall in sales (like Minna no Golf).




If you drop a PS3 right on top of a Wii, it would definitely defeat it. Not so sure about the Xbox360. - mancandy
