It’s that time again, last months NPD numbers are in.

On the gaming side of things, Bioshock 2 is in first place on the 360.

    @Machee: Yay for more of the same with Halo Reach! I guess you 360 guys love giving Microsoft and Bungie your hard earned money for the same shit time after time.

    @Blumatt

    Yes i will fork out some money for a FUN game Blumatt, does it bother you that much that MS and Bungie is milking Halo? just buy the ones that is fun and made sense for $60!…simple. I bought Halo 1,2,3 and skipped Halo Wars and rented ODST…and now buying Reach…so go back to you’re Killzone 2 and Resistance 2 that both sucked as a sequel! and oh yeah sorry about the Socom 4, i know you and your fanboys comrade where creating another Sony HYPE about those screenshots…wow screenshots…screenshots! unbelievable how PS3 fanboys these days are so graphically desperate and forgot FUN in games…anyway, sorry to say Socom 4 didnt turn out to be like the screenshots…ZIPPER are a waste developer now!

    P.S. enjoy your PS MOVE and hope it will move your balls back to your throat where it was use to be….

    Wow, The Wii got beat! (LOL, By another Nintendo product).

    Microsoft is doing work! Mass effect 2, Bioshock 2 and MW2 carried the 360 throughout February.

    Sony did pretty well for having just Heavy Rain Come out in late February.

    How in the fuck is the PS2 still selling units?

    I expect March numbers for Sony (PS3) to be off the charts.
    (Lets all remember these are February’s NPD Numbers).

    @Machee:

    I never heard blumatt hype up Socom 4 because of graphics.

    This is what blumatt told u:
    “Why is it that when people get excited for a 360 game it’s called excitement and when it’s for a PS3 game, people call it hype. What is it exactly that makes you automatically shoot down every PS3 exclusive?”

    Any back to what you said;
    “i know you and your fanboys comrade where creating another Sony HYPE about those screenshots…wow screenshots…screenshots! unbelievable how PS3 fanboys these days are so graphically desperate and forgot FUN in games…anyway, sorry to say Socom 4 didnt turn out to be like the screenshots…ZIPPER are a waste developer now!”

    Sorry to tell you but, Sony always goes the extra mile to make games more fun! Sony has the BALLS to take risks.

    On to the next quote:

    “PS MOVE is a big RIP OFF from Nintendo’s Wii, I saw a video of it being use in Socom 4 in IGN and feels like the guy was holding a Wii nunchuck. In other news, SOCOM 4 screenshots are simply screenshot because the actual gameplay looks like enchance graphic version of Socom:Confrontation…pathetic, no more hyping fanboys!”

    As I repeat,Sony always goes the extra mile to make games more fun! Sony has the BALLS to take risks. Please explain to me how you feel
    “the guy was holding a Wii nunchuck, As I recall, a Nunchuck is connected right? One would think that you are a Critical Thinker!LOL

    Now lets go to this video you saw on IGN.
    “the actual gameplay looks like enchance graphic version of Socom:Confrontation…pathetic, no more hyping fanboys!”

    Surely, you have a below average 6th grade reading level becuase I don’t know how you would miss this. Or did you not read up on the review of the video by Chris Roper

    “It looks pretty good visually; not stunning, but good, though it’s in a ({“Pre-Alpha”}) state and is a little choppy at the moment. That shouldn’t be a problem when it ships later this year, however.
    -Chris Roper IGN.

    P.S. I don’t like to grill people but when it time to grab them out the space clouds and pull them back to earth, well then I’m here to do so.

    As Mark Twain said, “It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.”
