these lists are ridiculous because they are always bent so the console of the threadstarter's choice wins. 

Here's how I can spin it to make the 360 the winning console.

I think the fact that the result is so close in and of itself can already be considered a win for the 360, because Sony is deemed to have a vastly superior first party.

That makes no sense, "lets deem the loser the winner because they sucked at something else more" and MS advertises alot more then Sony, so you are really just giving them bonus points for spending more money on advertising

You really are trying to make the glove fit arnt you? lol

MS has sold more 1st party SW this generation as your charts have pointed out, you can disclude a years worth of games all you like, it doesn't change the fact they would still be counted in a logical comparison ...

You seem to be the one trying to make the golve fit, this isn't about the gen, and a comparsion like that wouldn't be fair until the gen is over, this is about how much Sony and MS 1st and 2nd party games releashed in the same time frame sold, you can say this gen all you want but the fact is Sony sells more software then MS does

the first year of 360 game sales should count lol. Still it will never truly be fair i mean even this list doesnt account for the fact that the 360 had a bigger install base the entire time.

The question I was trying to answer was who sells more of their software MS or Sony and the answer is Sony, adding a year to MS that Sony didn't have but was still selling software but not counting that software because it wasn't on ps3 just seems silly 



The only thing what I see is a sony fanboy fighting to prove his right, what he doesn't has.



Interesting and good list. Personally I'd add Gears due to release dates but I would leave KA out as you noted.

Pretty much confirms a similar state of affair SW to HW - MS has sold more overall in terms of LTD but time adjusted it's pretty even overall, with a slight lead for MS. The major difference is that MS strategy is around a smaller (comparative to Sony but still fairly large in its own right) number of titles and a very small number of huge sellers.

Sony has a smaller number of huge sellers but pushes out a lot more titles (much the same strategy as with PS2, try for blanket coverage of lots of genres/demographics).

Both approaches have their pros and cons and it's interesting to see they come to such a similar result overall.

One thing though, seeing GT5 at the top of the list and still way below its probable LTD you really have to figure Sony should have worked harder to get that title out earlier in the consoles life.

Really, with HW/SW so similar and a similar feature set across both HD consoles now there's just no point hating on whichever HD console you don't own. Not that the core haters will change their tune now, but really, if you dislike the PS3 or 360 and prefer the other you're basically hating on something that's over 90% identical to the thing you love. But that's deindividualism (amongst other things) for you.



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

The list definitely imo looks better on Microsoft, they've been able to get their biggest games to reach out further then Sony has. I'd assume it's just them having a clearer vision on how to market these things. It'll be interesting to see how UC3 and Gears 3 compare this holiday... imo theres no reason why UC3 should sell less then gears... but it probably will, cause Sony can't market it like MS.

I would assume the list is going to go more towards a Sony lead in the future too? Simply cause they're releasing more games then MS... On the other hand Gears 3 and Kinect Sports 2 (and their other Kinect games) will probably outsell all of Sony's remaining line up this year lol.

You got the nerve to talk about erections with a name like that?

All the while the original posters hard on diminished...

So the final score is MS at 72.4 and Sony at 78.71, all of Sony's lesser selling titles eventually overcame MSes stronger selling ones, and I didn't count games released before ps3s release because I felt that the games needed to be over the same time frame in order for the comparison to be accurate 

Then to be really accurate, you should have counted the sales of those games from November 2006 to today.
