Is it fair to say that Don Mattrick has been the right guy to put the 360 on top?

I hate him.


I'm telling you, he's an otherworldly amalgamation of Tom Cruise and Kenneth from 30 Rock.

lol, i totaly see that.

the resemblance is uncanny.

 

anyway, why dont people like this guy?

People don't like him because he can be a total noob & totally succesfull at the same time Anyways, Balmer is teh king of MS!

OT:

Microsoft claimed $1.4B in revenue for November on one of their blogs.

I really liked Peter Moore a lot better. But I guess when Don Mattrick replaced him, the console became profitable. But that was at the expense of a lot of first party development.



"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."  --Hermann Goering, leading Nazi party member, at the Nuremberg War Crime Trials

Out of the total 8.9 million units of Modern Warfare 3 sold in November (a figure supplied by analyst firm Cowen) fewer than 100,000 were for the Wii, and even fewer were for Windows.

PC did worst then expected.

Retail PC did worst than expected, I'm sure that the digital download sales are much higher. Retail PC game sales are almost dead, most people who buy PC games do it in Steam/GoG/other digital download service, and we do it in high numbers.

This needs to stop. Steam etc are doing fine, but are not twice as big as retai. We don't get any numbers at all, so this is speculation only. The last time we received numbers was for Witcher 2 and it did not look too good.

maybe we are looking at combines sales (digital and retail) in the range of 200k - 300k. This would mean that the ratio between digital and retail would be like 3:1 in favour of digital sales and to me this seems like a stretch.



There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.

A moment of silence would be appreciated.

We have some numbers of steam: http://store.steampowered.com/stats/

 

The numbers aren't that high, compared to X360 or PS3 numbers, but 60k concurrent users in a weekday isn't a low number.

those are worldwide numbers. So yeah, maybe 20k peak in the US is pretty low. Tells you that my estimate won't be that far off.
