i was reading cnn.com and came across this article:

www.cnn.com/2002/TECH/ptech/04/25/video.games.sales.reut/index.html?related

after reading it i was a little upset that things weren't goin as well as MS had planned, but we all know things will change when MS launches XboxLive..............

it just bothers me that sony is doing so well when xbox is obviously superior....................:(

Hey don't worry what that chart says, there are 20+million PS2 owners out there so of course there games will be in the charts and as DZNUTZ said Sony and Nintendo have been around for some time, so yeah give it time:D

This will change,..eventually. Just look at what da PS2 has to offer now! Nothing! Sony is milking da hell outta that 4+ month old GTA3 with commercial ads all over da TV tubes still to this day!

Cause they know that's all they will have until what? FFXI?:rolleyes:

Just wait until the hot joints start rolling out on da Xbox, like:
Hunter: The Reckoning
Brute Force
Shenmue II
ect. , but the key is how MS will advertise these titles and any others exclusive Xbox games.
It's all about the TV yo!

Think of how long PS2 took to get going. For like a whole year, there were shortages and it had a few good games out (like GT3, SSX.) This is kind of how Xbox is doing, except without the shortages. After this year of wait that the PS2 had, it came out with GTA3, FFX, Devil May Cry, MGS2, etc. Now its huge. Xbox will have its chance, and I'm supposing it will be sometime around or after E3. There are lots of Xbox games coming out that are gonna rock, ex. Project Ego, Brute Force, Star Wars: KOTOR, Soul Caliber 2, Unreal Championship, Gun Metal, etc. XboxLive is coming out, which will rock too. Just wait. :D
