    Unless you're developing a fitness game on the Wii that is.

    Lack of bathroom scales I reckon. Plus they probably remember what games like that sold on the xbox and ps2.

    Except you've gotta wonder why EA or Activision hasn't copied that and brought it across the PS3/360.

    Because there's not (currently) the same margin of people owning one/willing to buy a fitness game/balance board?

    Microsoft and Sony are trying to turn that image around, and have been since the Wii/DS marketing proved successful, but they're both stuck with the shooter/complex game niche for the meantime.

    Well, I was being fairly tongue-in-cheek based mainly on Prototype's numbers. But did anyone ever argue that the benefit of making an exclusive was increased sales?

    Based on the extreme defence / promotion I've seen done by forumites for certain exclusives... maybe. ;)

    THE CONDUIT - WII - 71,913

    Just another 30K to go to reach the dizzying heights of MadWorld and HotD Overkill.

    Go Conduit! You can do it!

    Not sure, I think that's just a defense of selling platforms rather than games.
    Yes, I could see that. But current sales figuers probably support that idea, what with Nintendo having the most prominent exclusives and selling the best and Sony losing all their exclusives and selling like cakes of a distinctly moderate temperature.

    What came first, the product or the marketing?

    Prototypes 360 sales outdid the combined Prototype/inFamous sales on the PS3

    PROTOTYPE - 360 - 419.9K
    INFAMOUS - PS3 - 192.7K
    NPD US 06/2009 - Multiplatform Software Sales
    01 - Prototype - 599,073

    So 179,173 PS3 sales for Prototype.
    Prototype + inFamous sales on the PS3 371,873 vs. 419, 900

    Infamous was out last month, Tonka. You've missed a chunk of sales from last month's chart.

    What is this continuing obsession with the Wii and Fitness? Fucksake, if those NPD figures are an indication - and the continued sales of Wii Fit are anything to go on, are Wii owners just fat lazy fucks who believe waggling their arses around a bit will be a magic ticket to a slim waist?

    Looks like Infamous and Prototype directly impacted each others sales on PS3, I'm not sure either developer would be happy with the timing. I know I didn't bother with Prototype after completing inFamous.

    Ha, serves me right for playing Psychotext.

    OK, inFamous sold 175.9K last month so that leaves us with combined sales of inFamous and Prototype on the PS3 managed to outsell Prototype sales on the 360.

    Not so sensationalistic anymore.

    Are those Ghostbusters figures right? Out of 440K total only about 100K are PS3 sales?

    If that's accurate I doubt they'll be terribly pleased at forking out for the Euro exclusive period now. I wonder how much of it was caused by word of mouth over the graphical comparisons?

    Still, Ghostbusters was never going to be a system seller for any platform

    Halo 3 made it into the top 20 recently... so that shouldn't come as any major surprise.
