So it takes 5-6 years to develop Gran Turismo 5 costing them $60 million.....Then to generate 8.10 million in sales...
-http://www.geek.com/articles/games/gran-turismo-5-cost-60-million-to-develop-2009116/

Takes 4 years to develop Halo costing them $30-$50-$60 million?.....Generated 11.63 million in sales.....
-http://www.joystiq.com/2012/10/25/spencer-halo-4-is-microsofts-most-expensive-game/

Takes 2-3 years to develop (probably Mario kart) or LESS than 1.5 years (New super Mario) ...Generated 25.96 million in sales....

Rising cost production: The increasing complexity of games in graphics, artwork, sound, and story also requires more programmers to tackle difficult problems. With online gaming becoming the norm, often servers must be maintained as well. As the technology advances with each new generation of gaming consoles, the stakes grow higher. Budgets rise, development teams expand, and the cost of failure soars.

I agree with you.  nintendo made so much profits this gen its ridiculous.



The real shock is according the to numbers Microsoft has better first party games than Sony. We all knew Nintendo was higher than the others no shock there. Why does Nintendo's list have some random third party games in it? Also why is Monster Hunter in that list, as far as I know it is only published by Nintendo in the west.

95% of gamers don't know they are noobs, the 5% who do won't be noobs for long

That depends on personal choice. One thing is sure that Sony has diversity in games genre and covers almost all types of games. On the other hand Xbox is shooter-heavy.

And why Mass Effect 2 on the 360 list? It wasn't published by MS



What a bomb Skyward Sword :(

If you think higher sales means better quality, then I'm not going to argue with you.  I don't, but to each their own.  Also, there are plenty of third and second party games on the Microsoft list and a few on the Sony list.

Looking at this, I think it's easy to see how big a deal Kinect was for Microsoft.  It's pretty amazing the numbers it did at launch.  I counted 8 Kinect titles--is that correct?

Nintendo basically has a license to print money when they put the Mario name on something.  



borderlands is published by microsoft?

I really thought the gap between Sony (107.5m) and MS (137m) would be much bigger. I am surprised at that. Obviously games under 1m sales are not listed but I sure those games won't make much difference.

But kudos to Nintendo. Far cheaper games to develop equates to cheaper retail resulting in HUGE sales.

Who needs third party??
