I thought everyone knew that the more consoles sold, the more developer interest, the more reason to dev with ps3 as lead, more exclusives etc etc. Sales are more than just e-peen and console war fodder.

 

 

and yet games are still developed for 360 and ported to ps3, sure the ps3 gamers take a hit on just about every aspect and the ps3 score will be 5-10 points lower than the 360 review scores... but it's cheaper, and it's not like ps3 owners are the majority, so....

-this is an example of what the industry thinks.

I think I overlooked that part of your comment, I mean I believe that too. If they, the developers, start with the PS3 the games that are ported to the 360 won't be bad, so you get two quality games. That's one thing I don't like, they just slap it on the PS3 to make some more money. And no I'm not crying. The games that have started on PS3 have all been really good.

anyone with half a brain will understand the need for market dominance. Don't listen to anyone saying you're "crying". As a gamer with a desire to have the best experience possible, you should want your console to sell as much as humanly possible.



I never said anything about the console sales. Just the fact that he thinks it is over looked.

Who is exactly over looking it? THe companies that are pretty much in Microsoft's pockets?

So multi platform games start out on the 360? big deal. They are still great games. Instead of looking at review scores because it got HALF a less point how about you just enjoy them like I do and play the game.

Your mentally already hating the game because it got 9 instead of a 9.5.

Honestly you guys need to just accept it. or how about you stop playing your PS3 for 3months and go get a Wii and enjoy the VAST AWESOMENESS that 3rd parties put on Wii haha. Then when you return to the PS3 you will NOT think the same. a multi platform game with a score 0.5 less out of 10 that the 360 will be great to you.

I called this wrong CGI, I expected a lot of the more extreme Sony fanbase to leave in September when the 360 starts selling better than the PS3 ww, it would appear we could be seeing many leave before it even gets to that stage!

It's really a shame too. Each console now has so many strengths and is doing well within the industry. Too bad personal preferences sometimes get the best in people.

Couldn't.  Agree.

Just stop.

Look at Bayonetta on ps3 one month ago. Your argument is so flawed and you are trivializing a VERY "big deal".



Glad to see the Sony Playstation 3 Computer Entertainment System is still selling strong.



Odd. Future. Wolf. Gang. Kill. Em. All. OFWGKTA Don't give a fuck!

Fuck Steve Harvey. FREE EARL!

Final Fantasy Versus XIII will be the GREATEST game EVER made!!!

I'd take a bullet for Square-Enix! 

 

well watch the trailer in my sig below...this shud enthral PS3 fans.

I'm still trying to understand the problem.  This isn't 2007.  The PS3 not only has a ton of exclusives that Sony negotiated or bought the devs outright, but it also gets a huge number of multiplatform titles that are available on the 360.  And, with the rare exception (Bayonetta and ...), they are usually identical and have been for the last couple of years.

So basically when we hear PS3 fans complaining about not having games on their console or not having every single multiplatform game be equal or superior, it sounds like the rich kid complaining that his mom bought him a black Porsche instead of a red one ...



what about it?

from metacritic
