How can that possibly be true? Top 10 selling 360 and PS3 games:

PS3:

1 GTA4
2 COD4 - shooter
3 MGS4 -shooter
4 MS
5 R1 -shooter
6 AC
7 COD 5 - shooter
8 GT5
9 Uncharted - shooter
10 LBP

360

1 Halo 3 - shooter
2 COD 4 - shooter
3 GTA 4
4 GOW - shooter
5 COD 5 -shooter
6 GOW 2 -shooter
7 AC
8 Forza 2
9 GH3
10 LIJ

So, 5 shooters each? There's no argument there.

Numbers would actually give this some perspective. The best selling shooters on the 360 range from about 4.5 million to about twice that.

PS3 shooter fans do not exist in those numbers.

Where are you getting your numbers from?

VGChartz is showing:
First Week: Gears of War 2 - 1.8M
First Week: Killzone 2 - 0.7M

Have I ever told you that you have my favorite avatar on the entire website?

Hmm don't think so, but thanks! There's another suit dog pic out there if you're interested :)

 



@sergiodaly.... really?

I think this is right.... (havent checked..off top of my head) with regard to PS3 and 360:


Highest selling sandbox game is on 360 - GTAIV
Highest selling WRPGs is on 360 - Fallout, mass Effect
Highest selling TPS is on 360 - Gears 1 and 2
Highest selling FPS is on 360 - halo3 and take your pick
Highest selling Sports game is on 360 - Madden
Highest selling Driving Game is on 360 - Forza2
Highest selling JPRG is on 360 - Lost Odyssey (not sure about this actually?? - probably a PS3 game soon obviously)

and for fun

Highest selling gardening simulation is on 360 - viva pinata

so that leaves platforming... LBP on PS3

Kill zone was hyped on websites such as this. Big deal. Fan boys don't sell, mass market does.

The Hype of the PS3 and 360 on this site is huge. Yet in the real world, the Wii dominates.



PS3 fans hype every game on their console, yet dont buy 90% of them.



PREDICTIONS:
(Predicted on 5/31/11) END of 2011 Sales - Xbox 360 = 62M;  PS3 = 59M;  Wii = 97M

there are alot of reasons, first is that Halo 3 is a launch tittle and people who bought the xbox bought it cause it was the only AAA tittle available , Second Xbox owners love shooters most so its no suprise that the commercially succesful Gears was selling.

Ps3 owners however are varied , alot of them like RPG's and some like racers, sports, adventure ...ect the shooter fans are little compared to the PC and xbox 360 but they did grow overtime.

Halo 3 launched 2 years after launch.

Gears 1 was the first AAA title if I remember correctly.

 

I 100% with your list edit though. Uncharted is not a shooter and neither is MGS4.

It is just like how Tomb Raider wasn't considered a shooter before.

Didn't we have this exact same thread yet just a few days ago?

And @kowenicki: wrong logic.

Pitting 360 vs PS3 absolute sales doesnt tell you much about the preferences of PS3 owners regarding the various game genres. For example GTAIV has an higher tie ratio on PS3 than on 360, Madden will obviously sell better on the 360 in absolute terms (_American_ football) but again, see tie ratio with NA numbers,etc.

By your logic: Wii kart is the best selling racing game by far, does that mean that 360 owners aren't interested in racers?
