Killzone 2 was hyped on the internet, true, but seriously, how many people do all the videogames websites affect ? 500.000 ? That's the upper limit imo. Halo 3 was the sequel to the biggest MS franchise and had a HUGE amount of advertisement everywhere.

How many PS3 owners use the internet?

I'd say close to 100%.

Maybe yes but the percentage who uses Internet to look up upcoming games, check out reviews, hyped games is much much lower.

You think all PS3 owners frequent gaming websites and hype the games?

This has been disscused plenty of times already.

The widely circulated conclusion is that the PS3 install base consists of a set of consumers with a very broad range of tastes. While the 360 install base is more focused, ie. there is a larger 'shooter crowd' in the 360 install base.

The 360 also has a much larger install base in NA, where gamers are more likely to make day-one purchases then their European counterparts.

As for internet hype, a few outspoken posters on a website do not correctly represent the views of the average consumer.

QFT; this is pretty much what I figured out myself. Well, I don't consider the day-one purchases that important but the effect exists nevertheless.

Wouldn't MGS4 be a better game for this comparison? It's pretty unfair to take two very hyped games agains the most hyped games of another console and then forget the best-selling, most hyped game of the other console. Yes, the thing won't change even if the numbers do but it does give a better view on the whole case.

I'd say the majority check out gaming sites, certainly. You don't need to be a part of the hype to read it. Killzone 2 was everywhere before it was released. PS3 owners are hardcore enough to spend a huge amount of money on the system in the first place, what's so suprising about them visiting a gaming site now and then?

@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

 

This.

Also XBLA games sell better than their PSN counterparts. What other than LBP does PS3 have that it can boast as the best in its category???

Believe that if you wish.

Does the 360 have an Action/Adventure game that sold more than Uncharted?

Nor Killzone or Littlebigplanet or even mgs are huge brand names for playstation owners like Halo for xbox owners. GT is one of them.
Plus playstation owners seems they're not that focused on a sigle genre.
