Wow so let me get this straight, firstly you come onto a computer game forum, read a piece about computer games, then decide to assume someone must have no life nor a girlfriend for being interested in it? Im not sure what is worse the fact you clearly have no brain or the fact that you actually bothered to type at the end "get a life and a girlfriend"

Well Mr Jeremy Kyle here is a picture of me and my wife (thus proving i have a girlfriend)
http://img233.imageshack.us/my.php?image=beachsm9.jpg

Now as for the "life" part im not quite sure how i can "get a life" as im too busy with my succesful job to pay off my house and wedding to be able to get one of those. Seeing as your so great at it and obviously have advice for people in abudence how about sharing some?

But somehow i imagine you are a spotty little 14 year old who has zero clue as to how the world works and live at home with your mum and dad leeching off society. The only life you have is destined to be down the job centre with your hooded clothes and your 1980's tracksuit bottoms. But hey at least you can tell people to get a life on the internet mate, that will show them! I bet all the women chase after you for that! ;)

For those who generally actually have a clue they know that in Japan nothing that is Western sells very well (unless it is an Ipod). So the fact the 360 has sold well there has jack **** to do with being a fanboy or even an interest in games. Everyone knows how well the Wii is selling everywhere so the fact something else beat it even for 1 week is amazing, the fact the item that beat it was a non Japanese item makes it even more amazing!

God bless the internet hey, kids like Ajvretard would have nobody to talk to without it!

back to the point. jesus thats fairly odd isn't it? i had always heard the japanese were quite against microsoft because they wern't japanese but i may have misread wherever i had seen it. do we think that this is mainly due to the release of that game mixed with the price cut and will the wii outsell it again in a months time?

btw, if I remember rightly, the only reason it shifted so many units that week was because a massively popular Jap game was released that week, so it's hardly surprising.

With a nice wife too! Not sure I would have posted a link to prove it though tbf. :cool:

Aye the 360 will do well to keep up shifting those numbers of units however the Japanese do love thier RPGs so a few more of those will help the numbers.

Personally I'm tired of all the FPSs we get here. Why do we need so many?

You found out the truth, dam your computer wizadary!

And if i "did not have a life" i wouldn't have written much due to having no life :P

Also nimster it was due to the console getting a price cut there and Infiniate Discovery being released (made by the people who make final fantasy). I would think next week the world will return to it's correct order with the 360 at the bottom again.

And the reason i posted a photo is because if your going to insult someone at least come up with something better then "get a life and a girlfriend". Most people have a partner these days what with the population being what it is, to assume they don't is far more sad then someone playing games, it is like saying "get a tv".

Most of your friends are level 61 orc lords. Most of my friends are single, so that kind of blows your theory apart nerdlinger and we have all been in "long term relationships" at one point, i think we need to post more xbox 360 facts.

Haha it gets worse! So not only do i have no partner (obviously blind) i now have no friends!! You know me too well.

The reason your friends don't have partners is because your all 10 years old. Too busy playing with your Tamagotchi's.

The ironic thing is i do have friends on here Cabbage and they tell me your a bigtime geek who plays on xbox live constantly as well as World of Warcraft. So even if i played those games which i don't (except Fifa/PES which i play with people on here) your a bit hypocritical.

Oneday your grow a pair mate but for now they are obviously growing on your head :)

I have no doubt you are familliar with the red lights Cabbage. If it wasen't for them i doubt anyone would of asked you out on a date. How is Mark Oaten by the way? I hear you guys are not talking anymore for some reason?

And i would play tetris on live but my xbox is at a friends house. I'm too busy playing Golf on the Wii. And no i won't play you at that as no doubt your a pro with the movements of shaking the Wii remote up and down. Maybe oneday someone will do that to you back ;)

And you did indeed win the argument and are 100% right. Anyone who has an interest in the biggest selling entertainment buisness in history must be a nerd who has no life, has never had sex and more importantly has no friends! In fact your so spot on you should go to my mate who works at Sky and ask about them commisioning a new show about your life skills! Loads of people would be interested in your amazing insight.

I dont pay for games either, but that seems still quite popular.

Porn/Sex is the biggest entertainment industry in the world, hence its everywhere on the net and tv. I am yet to find a games channel on sky, but there are about 20-30 porn channels, the biggest thing on the net is porn, and there are probably more porn mags than console game mags in shops.

Im love computer games, but i can accept they are not the biggest entertainment industry.

Well then you haven't looked very hard for those channels as they are there. In fact Sky One have their own shows dedicated to games and even have a show on friday and saturday nights of teams playing each other.Bravo are the same and have Gamer TV.
Sky also have on digital channels Rush (and Rush HD) AH TV and SportsXchange. There are various others such as PGamming etc..

Granted i have not watched them but i have heard of them and in London see the sky boards advertising them. In UK games are on the increase in terms of exposure on tv but i can't see it ever threatening traditional tv. Reason for this is because it is something you play not watch. All other countries outside of UK have moved to games a lot faster then here. When you go to Japan you see it everywhere. They have a passion for games like we do football. In fact in Japan there are more game stores then there are bars. It is the same in Korea/China they are far more into games then we are. And obviously the states is the main place for games.

I have no idea how much money the porn industry makes but i know the normal film industry kills it in sales. The number 1 selling film of all time is Titanic which has made about $600m. The Dark Knight might go on to break that number as it is already at $520m. There is nothing in the porn world that can get close to those numbers, nothing in music or tv. But games can. Take Halo 3 (i hate the game and series) it sold $300m in 7 days in the US alone. http://uk.gamespot.com/news/6180380.html
Grand Theft Auto 4 then went on to beat that with selling 500m in 7 days and shiffting 3.6m games in 1 day. That is phenomenal.
http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/52554

So Titanic took 11 years to get to $600m. GTA4 beat it in 14 days. Star Wars made $450m in nearly 20 years. Halo 3 did that in 2 weeks.
The games industry is the biggest selling form of entertainment on the planet. Porn while though popular is not even on the same page.

And i thought Sky were rolling out the LLU in July? (if that is the broadband/tv/phone calls thing?)

One minor point - figures for quoted Titanic are US box office takings, while the GTA4 ones are worldwide (Titanic was actually the first film to break the $1bn mark).

Besides, the fundamental flaw with the film/games argument is that a cinema ticket costs 8 while a game costs 40.

Games may make more money than films but more people watch films. So which is biggest? Who knows, as both are depending on how you measure it.

And a quick Google search turns up articles quoting that the porn industry was worth 30bn pa in 2005 (which is what, $55bn?). I've no idea how much the other two industries are worth but I find that figure quite interesting.

See this is the myth, the porn industry claims to be making xyz but in reality it is nowhere near that. MSNBC (american news agency) did a bit of research into it a few years ago and made a report that blows it out of the water.

Interesting facts they found was that it made around $282m from DVD sales in 2005 (when the BBC piece you mention was released). That is 140m.

The group who track dvd's (VSDA) said in 2006 14.000 adult dvd's were released in that year. They then said

"VSDA’s July 2005 estimate that adult sales and rentals account for just 2 percent of the whole $24.3 billion DVD pie, adult DVD sales and rentals combined for 2005 would have been just $486 million."

Again nowhere near the 30bn estimate they throw out.

Then there is the net. They say

It’s nearly impossible to get any reliable data on how much people are making online, but anecdotal evidence suggests that it’s much less than the $2.8 billion business AVN makes it out to be. The adult industry is suffering from the same pirating woes that have increasingly been bedeviling the recording industry. “When I was younger, you found your dad’s Playboy; but at least your dad paid for that Playboy,” says Allan MacDonell, who recently recapped his 20 years working for Larry Flynt’s Hustler empire in his memoir, “Prisoner of X.” “Now you’ve got Google and you type in ‘amputee sex’ or whatever you want. You’re conditioned now that you don’t have to pay for that stuff.”

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17033892/site/newsweek/from/ET/print/1/displaymode/1098/

So if those figures are true they estimate it is worth maximum of $1.3bn a year. To put that into perspective. Mobile phone games make 11.9bn a year.

Also just rememberd Forbes (the official money company) did a study into it and found it could make maximum of $2.6bn

There is a difference capiche? But please stop with your comical uses it is making me die with laughter. (If humour is about how many times you can say the same word in different ways geek/nerd/mongoloid etc..) come up with some new material, it is making even Jim Davidson's **** look genuis.

p.s i don't need my dad to beat people up for me, and if i asked him it would be "go get your ass kicked like a man!" ;)

Yeah and your mum is fat.

This would have been perfect had it been back in my school days. We used to love lol'ing at the "geek fights". If they got more too boring then we just joined in and did some "geek bashing".

So be warned, I may have to "e-geekbash" you! (That sounds kinda kinky dunnit?!)

think your looking for

www.whogivesa****.com

If it was against another console then people would be interested. In fact so many people are interested there is a website called www.vgchartz.com which is one of the most visited sites on the internet. I dare you to go on there and say those things Cabbage. See the difference between you and me (other then the fact you have never had a girlfriend,have no job, failed school and apparently sound like a girbil stuck up a pet shop boys ass on xbox live. So im told) is that i get paid to know about games. While your sat there trying very hard to sound like your cool while flicking through your billy blue hat book im sat here looking at the games market and passing that news/predictions onto actual companies which i get paid for, such is the life of a media analyst.

But i am not surprised that you are interested in ferrets you sick ****

Well it is semi back to normal now with the Wii selling more then hot cakes once more. However the 360 is still outselling the PS3 in Japan which is a tad crazy as that makes it 5 weeks in a row now. So crazy that it made front page news on Reuters
http://www.reuters.com/article/technologyNews/idUSTRE49218520081003?feedType=RSS&feedName=technologyNews

Someone should go and tell the worlds biggest news website they are a bunch of geeks and need to get girlfriends! ;)

Seen the new DSi. I think thats gonna take off when its released, those crazy Japs love their gadgets but I do love em!

Surprised by the hardware sales of the PSP though its quite high compared to software being bought for it.

That's because it's a neat bit of hackers delight. They don't need to buy the games!

Johnny Shearer

Anyone seen the latest numbers then? :D

I read that the 360 has reached the number of units Microsoft sold of the Xbox but the Wii is still ahead of the 360 and PS3 by a fair amount.

The Wii will never be caught. It is amazing how it has brought so many people into the games world. It is like the PS2 of the last generation.

Johnny Shearer
19-11-2008, 08:34 PM
See I don't think the PS2 was intended to bring people together like the Wii.

It came out when DVD's were really the next format to have and people saw it was a cheap player and games machine combined IMO.

St Marco

Well again i don't think anyone will be interested seeing as i doubt your all into buisness; but last friday was black friday, the biggest selling week for everything electronic in the calender! This year posted record sales (funny how the games industry survives the economic problems)
The sales were for the world excluding japan
Wii = 1.3m
360 = 789k
PS3 = 367k
and the
DS = 1.68m...
Those are all in just 1 week. That is some serious $$$

It is the friday after thanksgiving in USA. For some reason americans find it fun to all que up outside giant stores and crush each other to death to get good deals. I think they said there were 10 confirmed deaths from being crushed this year or something....
