Very pointless thread. There is no evidence to support that it would sell more

How much do you think Killzone 3 would have sold LT on the 360? I think it would have sold around 1.5-2million more on the 360 than PS3 LT. The Xbox 360 is known as the shooter box and Sci-Fi shooters sell well on the 360. My prediction the PS3 version will sell about 4 million and the 360 version could sell 5.5-6 million (Provided it has good legs). But there is no doubt that the PS3 version will look much more better than the 360 version.

 

                                                             

 

 

                            

 

I thought we were over this...the 360 is capable of anything the PS3 can do graphically right now >_>

OT: With good marketing it probably would have sold 1 million more maybe.

Porbably like 2-3 million more lifetime

Not exactly, but the results will be closer than many make it out.The PS3 is capable of doing things the 360 isn't, and is also a more powerful machine, but the differences aren't that big. Pure calculations/number-crunching, the PS3 can run laps around the 360. However, the 360 has stronger areas as well, such as mip mapping capabilities and anti-aliasing due to the stronger GPU. It's also a better equipped machine for code (networking), which is why (on a technical side) Xbox LIVE will probably always be one step ahead of PSN (even if PSN offers more before all is said and done).

OT: Maybe a million or so more, nothing extraordinary. Since there's no way of knowing (and no, the 360 being stronger in America doesn't mean Killzone 3 would suddenly be a monster seller on it), all anyone in this thread can (and will) do is speculate.

I should have clarified what I meant. First off I do agree with your points and believe that when this generation comes to an end the PS3 will have a step up in graphics from anything the 360 could do. But my point was dsage01 basically said KZ3 would have worse graphics on the 360 and thats not true because at this point in time the 360 is capable of having as good as graphics as the PS3 because 1: neither the 360 or the PS3 have reached their potential and 2: Crysis 2 proves that the 360 can have as good as graphics as the PS3 currently does (BTW I know as a whole Crysis 2 isn't quite as good as the best PS3 games but at its best its as good as any game on the PS3.



It would have sold less. A formerly Sony exclusive FPS series wouldn't do that hot on the Xbox 360, unless that userbase thought that PS3 games are superior to their 360 counterparts and thus gobbled up the sequel to Killzone 2 excitedly.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Crysis 2 proves that the 360 can have as good as graphics as the PS3 currently does (BTW I know as a whole Crysis 2 isn't quite as good as the best PS3 games but at its best its as good as any game on the PS3.

I think Crysis 2 isn't the best example, because it doesn't really take advantage of either piece of hardware and has far too many issues to be the best representation of what the 360 can do in conjunction to PS3. I would say the 360 is capable of doing most of what the PS3 can do, but not anything it can do. Crysis 2 does make a case to multiplatform/exclusive developers that the 360 is very much alive and kicking, however. I have no doubt that Gears of War 3 will sit comfortably atop the 360's graphical capabilities when it launches.

Nevertheless, I don't know how Killzone 3 would have fared on 360. As a port, I'm willing to bet it wouldn't have performed/looked as good for the simple reality of spec differences.As for sales, as a PS3 exclusive, if it were to go multiplat (impossible regardless), it would still perform better on the Sony machine. Had it launched as a multiplat from the beginning (again, theoretically - Killzone can't/won't ever do that), it probably would have sold a good deal better on 360.

YO JOHN ....Um buddy yeah we have been over this... Im in computer engineering i specialize in hardware and graphical technology...

 

I PROMISE YOU THE 360 IS NOT EQUIVILENT IN GRAPHICAL PROWESS... god i cant believe people still say that..

PS3 CAN PERFORM 3 times the amount of graphical computations per second as xbox... ITS ALL ABOUT THE DEVELOPERS BEING ABLE TO USE THE PS3 PROPERLY WHICH STILL HAS A WAYS TO GO..

 

Most people dont even know that the cell is still stronger than THE I7 as far as calculations per second.... get ur shit straight.

You may be confused because 360 gpu has a bit more flexibility and I will give it the edge... but WE LOOK AT THE SYSTEMS AS A WHOLE.

If youd like to learn more IGN did a decent comparison.. not very indepth tho

“Absolutely, we can do much more with it. I don’t know if we are even close to 50 percent of PlayStation 3’s power at this point,” said Asmussen about God of War 3.
