    PS3 have sold more than the 360 and the gap is increasing.

    Yes, Halo on PS3 - oh wait.

    Source on sales?

    According to the link you just posted, Xbox is ahead of PS3 by almost 4 million units, and I doubt anything caused them to sell 4 million units in one month :)

     

    And It's kind of funny to see the Wii trounching them both soundly!

     

    As for Dust 514 on a console, I was meh about it to begin with. Console shooters just aren't fun to me.  I prefer them for RPGs, fighting games, and racing sims, while PC's are superior for FPS, MMO, and RTS. This is just my opinion though.

    Sorry to dissapoint you man. Xbox leads by 4-5 million. It's official, and you can find it on many sources.

    The ps3 lead in sales for that month, I hadn't checked the data in a while.  What you're refering to is total worldwide sales till now.  So even if the ps3 did pass the 360 and according to some sources it did that would not mean it leads in total all time wordwide sales.  It would take the ps3 surpassing the adbox many months for it to have the all time record.

    World sales of ps3 units throw a shadow on the xbox sales and laughs. The ONLY place the xbox sold more units (and this is going on a good few years ago) is the US because US consumers don't do their research and think, they go for the gimicky and "popular". How's that rrod working for you? How many xbox have you gone through because it crapped out on you? It's been 5 years (give or take a year) since I've bought my ps3, and I'm still using that very same one. The only downside to the ps3 atm is sony's lack of security and declaring war on all hackers. You can search for the graphs and what not as I have done a long time ago.

    According to Microsoft, sales for xbox 360 are record high, while the PS3 is loosing the battle.

    Dude, Xbox sold more xopies worldwide. Check ANY source. Also, motherboards on Xbox 360 were changed years ago. Chances for RROD are less then 1%.

    As for why its not for both Consoles, how many times has Microsoft denied games on their system because its not how they like it and for why its not on PC over Console. Well if u have to ask urself that one then u dont know business and gaming in general. While i love the way PCs are unlimited in their upgradability, most people dont want to mess with them and want to put in a disk and play or simply upload something and there they go. PCs have so many different configurations that they actually are a headache for most developers and regular gamers to mess with. Consoles are the leaders in making money on game sales and it wont change as long as PCs have such a learning curve and while most PC gamers say dont be ignorant and do it yourself, most people dont give a shit about seeing that extra pixel or shadow and just want to game. PCs while being better at bleeding edge tech will always fall behind on sales of gaming because consoles are just easy, and they make more money. Developers may make the games on PC but they know where the money flow is and that is what keeps them in jobs no matter how PC gaming fanboys feel.

    Applications for MMO guilds??? Sorry not that pathetic just yet

    Yea sorry, I must haave read that the sales in Europe. And the differnce isnt that big worldwide considering 360 was released about 16 months earlier.

    But according to vg ps3 is outselling 360 in the us now.

    And yea 360 got Halo 4 to look forward to... grats!

    and WAR = Led Zeppelin

    I'm aching for this game.

    Absoutely amazing.

    I've always liked bethesdas stuff but they have a bad habit of not addressing horrible bugs once their game is released or maybe they have icompetent programmers who can't do anything but program in directx.

     

    omg, its at least 300 hours long.  Now THAT is a game worth 60 bucks, not these mutltimap fragfests with a 10 hour single player campaign.

    Dust 514 was promoted as cross-console by CCP for 2+ years. Now all of sudden it's for a single console. The coolest part of the forumla is gone.

    CCP apparently isn't being run by the sharpest tools in the shed.

    doesnt surprise me in the least, that the 360 is outselling the PS3... add in Sony's latest spate of security debacles, and people trading in their PS3's for Xbox's and you have a situation thats not looking very cheery for Sony at all, yet another factor in Sony's coffin imo.. the company has been losing money steadily for the last 3 years, hence all the layoffs, that Sony is factoring in to try and turn that around, all i see is that buying exclusivity for the PS3 in dust is a last gasp, clutching at straws kind of thing.... for CCP to go along with it .. is .. imo.. incredibly short sighted..  i can only think that CCP doesnt put any faith in Dust themselves.image

    So ccp has basically given up on improving eve. i say this is the main salvo in the sinking of the ship known as eve.

     

    Tons of eve players money and dev time gone to make a game for people who don't play eve... yeah ill stand by it CCP has lost its mind.

    I really don't feel like trusting Sony with any personal information any more, guess I won't be playing this.

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    I don't hate much, but I hate Apple© with a passion. If Steve Jobs was alive, I would punch him in the face.

    Stupid move.  Love joo CCP but still stupid.  Should have released on both consoles. I own both but my ps3 is nothing more than a blu ray player except for uncharted.  Not that it completely matters since I will be quiet content in my pod whilst the 14 yr old fps kids do my dirty work for me.

    Lol i love the Xbox/PC comments. When they Announced Dust 514, they clearly stated that it would be on console only and exclusive to the PS3. Its one of the reasons I went out and bought a PS3 in the first place.. Now I disagree with it not being available to PC. However, the Xbox I'm glad it's not for Xtards

    No they didn't dust has been in the works for a long time and at it start nothign of this sort was mentioned .

    People getting upset need to check themselves.  First, obviously the target crowd for Dust is console players.  Second, it's exclusively LAUNCHING on PS3, which allows for expansion to other consoles or PC down the road.  Third, I like how they plan to split the 2 in such a way, it makes it more "realistic".  You truly will be playing a different game but communicating with those clones flying around above.  It lends to a singular atmosphere.  Oh, and I have a PS3 and a PC so I can play the FPS and the original EVE, so...what's the problem?  I can't wait to play it, I just hope the combat and controls are as fluid as CoD.

    Oh ok, it might be released on the pc in the future.... It might not be.

    I like how a game taking place in the same world , which effect each other cannot actually be played by the same people this si realistic? I mean cannot i get off my ship and help out on a planet ... no that wouldn't be realistic.... Wait yes it would. So why is it more realistic? Becuase its pretty much not in anyway i can tell.

    It does lend to a singular atmosphere and experience. So why not remove all pve, manufacturing, science, politics, markets, stations, etc from eve this would accomplish an even more singular atmosphere and experience.... because that is what you want in an mmo right?

    Dust is trash its a waste of the money eve players have paid, and they will get no return from it, despite ongoing costs to it.

    The real complaint EVE players have is that we don't like CCP wasting resources that we paid for being wasted on a game that no one is going to play. It is guaranteed that CCP will force us to rely on these Dust players, so when the game underperforms (which it will) and then eventually dies (console shooters have terrible shelf lives) we get stuck with yet another unusable feature. This is something we have been complaining about since Dust was announced, but it is A LOT worse now that the considerably larger 360 playerbase is locked out. I don't know anyone who trusts Sony with their CC info anymore.

    Meanwhile, things that have needed fixing for years continue to get ignored. I'd bet the next QEN shows a subscriber drop in EVE, even with Incarna.

    If the game is good, people will play it for long time. I play Halo 3 multiplayer  (released 2007), and there are still around 25000 concurrent players in US primetime. That's around 100 000 players in total. For refference, EVE has a bit more than 300 000 subscribers.

    after several years of playing, the've thrown me under the bus. i'm not getting one of those cute little boxes.  so that's the end of my EVE subscription

     

    It was fun while it lasted.

     

    pity...

  • ForgefeuForgefeu Member UncommonPosts: 115

    FPS on console great !

    Oh wait

  • Christopher8Christopher8 Member Posts: 134

    So when CCP showed the Demo and the dev using a XBox controller to play that was just a giant middle finger?

     

    Also I find it very hard to believe that Dust and EVE will be sharing the same Server and somehow CCP will not be sharing player info with Sony. One hack is all it takes.
