So far this thread has been a failure. I think we've had one Xbox-related vote since this thread went up.

Despite what some of you are saying, I'm certain that there's a decent Xbox fanbase here. Any suggestions on how to get them?

No point. You tried though. 

Edit: You can just try posting on their wall. Some might go badass angry on you like J Allard.

I just voted. SO you got one more to vote. ;) Unfortunately I still had to put the Unanounced Zelda U at the top of my list. I may buy most of my games for Microsoft consoles, but I have to have all of the consoles for the great exclusives.

Every month since April of last year, I've held regular votes to see which games are the most anticipated on VGChartz. It's been fun, and I've learned a lot about this website's tendencies and tastes. However, there is one thing that continuously bothers me.

We have about two Xbox fans voting.

You see, we vote using a sort of point system, where you vote for 5 games, from 1 to 5 points each, for a total of 15 points. For example, we have 733 points so far this month, because 49 people have voted (and two of them messed up).

The Xbox One and 360 COMBINED have 30 points.

That's about 4% of the total combined.

That's less than the Vita COMBINED.

I wouldn't be so bothered, but I suspect that the Xbox community here on VGChartz isn't so small. I mean, looking at the Forum Index, it should be getting a bunch more votes every month. So consider this my special invitation to all Xbox fans.

Vote Below!

I'd actually guess there are a lot more vita fans on the site then Xbox fans.  The official vita thread gets quite the amount of attention.

Hell, I was recently accused of being an Xbox fan, and my favorite 360 game is a game that was better on the PS2!

Really it's probably even wose with casual posters and lurkers.

Look at it this way, we are primarily a gaming sales related site... Nintendo has won 3 generations, Sony has won two.

Microsoft hasn't won any... and showings so far were "In the lead for second place for a long time due to a head start" and "In second place until it was discontinued due to some legal reason or something, and maybe still beat the gamecube or fell short.... who knows."

So it's not like there has been much to build momentum to make microsoft fans come to a site like this, vs one based more on the gaming aspects of gaming.

I didn't know this existed.

But it probably has to do with how pointless it is unless you're a Nintendo/Sony gamer.


Your calling my monthly hobby pointless hurt me.

That's not what I said.



Maybe we are sick of all the trolling.

Oh...

Never mind then.



Love and tolerate.

But there is no trolling in that poll or thread. People just go and vote for the games they want, even sometimes you learn about games that you didn't know were announced, and at the end of the month Salnax show us the results.

That thread is, so far, troll free.



Please excuse my bad English.

Seems like some posters even managed to use this thread as a means to complain about all the terrible sony trolling.

Anyways, this thread isnt a waste. I myself did not know about your "most wanted" thread...and I have a very broad taste in gaming and systems. So there might be some most wanted Xbox one games getting votes from me

Truth be told I buy both consoles but prefer my Xbox 360. I will get the Xbox One first next gen then the PS4 sometime next year. I don't really post very often in many forums around the internet anymore because anything I ever say positive about the Xbox One i'm attacked by volumes of Sony Fanboys. In many cases I don't even bring up the PS4 but still I'm attacked. The problem is less here and more other gaming sites but because of the constant attacks anything thats said positive about my Xbox I just decided to opt out and simply not engage in the forums any longer.

I'm a gammer and love both my Xbox 360 and PS3 but I'm tired of only being able to discuss my PS3 in any discussion without getting attacked...
