Forums - Sales Discussion - GTA IV the beginning of the end of the XBOX 360?

360 is doing well with gtaiv.

If it didn't have GTAIV then this thread would actually make more sense lol

Humm... at this rate PS3 will only need 19,2 years to pass 360...

Ffs, if I had a 50 Eur bill for every "it's the end for 360" thread I'd be rich. Let it go man, let it go. MS proved it can deliver, let's hope Sony get its act straight and don't mix VCR's wanabe's with games! Roll on PS4, PS3 is a flop, I'm sorry, that's disturbing but it's a fact. Too cocky, they got too cocky!

 

Can you guys imagine if it was 360 was PS3 and vice-versa? 360 would be dead. PS3 still manages to get away "with murder" because its living on PS2 expenses, which was in fact a great system. MS is working hard, they have to. Too bad some ppl due to "funny feelings" towards companies don't accept that.

And it amazes me even more when it's even Aemericans who bash their greates company, which literaly changed the world. If I was American I'd be proud instead, but that's me...

Peace, I do like you all, you're my fellow video-gamers after all, just don't be blind or it'll hurt the community.


IT'S A QUESTION.  NOT A PROCLAIMATION.  IS THIS THE BEGINNING OF THE END, OR NOT.  SHEESH.

If I got 50 bucks for everytimes someone didn't read the OP, I'd be rich.



Is this the beginning of the end for '360 is dead' threads?
I sure hope so.



OKAY, I HAVE TO WRITE THIS IN BOLD, SINCE CLEARLY, SOME PEOPLE IN THIS THREAD HAVE FALLEN ASLEEP DURING READING COMPREHENSION CLASS.

THIS THREAD IS ABOUT HARDWARE, NOT SOFTWARE.  ABOUT HOW 360 ISN'T AHEAD OF PS3 HARDWARE, ON (ARGUABLY) THE BIGGEST RELEASE OF THE YEAR, THE RELEASE THAT THEY'VE SECURED EXCLUSIVE EPISODIC CONTENT ON, AND ON THEIR CHEAPER CONSOLE.  

THE QUESTION POSED IS, IS THERE ANY OTHER GAME THAT WILL CHANGE THE DIRECTION THAT NA IS GOING (PS3 > 360) OR IS THIS THE BEGINNING OF THE END?  

THANKS TO THOSE WHO POSTED, AND DIDN'T FALL ASLEEP IN READING COMPREHENSION CLASS.

AGAIN, PEOPLE PLEASE READ THE OP BEFORE COMING IN, BASHING MY THREAD.  

THIS IS A THREAD ASKING IF THE 360 IS BEGINNING TO BE DEAD IN AMERICA, AFTER THE RELEASE OF GTA IV, AND HOW IT COULDN'T PASS PS3 IN HARDWARE.  NOT A PROCLAIMATION OF 360 BEING DEAD.  AGAIN, THIS IS A QUESTION. USE YOUR READING COMPREHENSION SKILLS BEFORE BASHING MY THREAD, THANK YOU FOR THOSE THAT HAVE DONE THAT.  FOR THOSE THAT HAVEN'T PLEASE EDIT YOUR POSTS, NOW THAT YOU (HOPEFULLY) UNDERSTAND THIS.

 

GTA IV launched in America and Europe this week, and the American numbers are in.

PS3 has outsold the 360 by a modes 26k units.  

While that isn't a lot, America is 360's biggest market...

If GTA IV, with 360's Exclusive Episodic Content didn't push sales above PS3 this week, what will?

Is GTA IV the beginning of the end for the 360 in America?

You decide.  



@ shameless

Uhh... did I say 360 is dead? No.
I hope this is the beginning of the end of you not using reading comprehension skills. Read the OP, then post again.

kthxby.

 What the hell did you think people were going to say in this thread? You write some flamebait title that will attract every fanboy on this site and then expect people to actually be civilised?

The beginning of the end implies that the 360 is dieing or close to being dead. You wouldn't have posed the question if you didn't believe it was worthy of discussion.



This thread fails miserably. It makes absolutely no sense at all. Both shams and stof are right in criticising you on this thread.
Starcraft would say this thread is trolling.

Exactly, thus proving my point.

It is worthy of discussion.  Some think it is, some think it isn't.  This is a site where we discuss sales... Right?

So we're discussing the sales of the 360.  And my thread title isn't flamebait.  It's a question.  I didn't say it was dead.  That would be flamebait.  Learn the meaning of words before you come and attack me.
