@yoshilimbo...DMC as Bayonetta is just Dante's second servings. lol
oni-link (on 23 December 2010)
picked this up for $5 at TRU a couple of days ago. Awesome game for an oldie.
YoshiLimbo (on 14 May 2010)
everyone Bayonetta or DMC 4 ? Im unsure right now.
Skeeuk (on 28 September 2009)
good way to save 5 gig on my ps3:)
deathgod33 (on 02 September 2009)
this game is awesome
Berstuck (on 12 July 2009)
not the greatest DMC game but worth picking up if you can get it for cheep.
IxisNaugus (on 07 July 2009)
My very first DMC game. Enjoying it thus far :)
TheConduit (on 05 July 2009)
120k behind the PS3
Kyuu (on 29 April 2009)
A great game, but u could never completely master Dante's styles since X360 D-pad sux s.
nomorehalo (on 27 March 2009)
This game was as stale as week old bread.
black7xxx7 (on 15 February 2009)
great game the only problem was the backtracking but very beautifull graphics and very fun
toastboy44562 (on 06 December 2008)
this game deserves more...
Simulacrum (on 20 July 2008)
Good amemerican sales..
toastboy44562 (on 13 July 2008)
can sombody add some screen shots
Oemenia (on 10 July 2008)
I think its mainly because its the first big game for PS3 in a long while, and the fact thats its an established franchise there, that is branded to PS consoles
RockSmith372 (on 09 July 2008)
gearbox

This franchise is mainly for playstation formats so that is why PS3 is doing better than Xbox 360 in this game
Gearbox (on 21 June 2008)
the ps3 has sold more units in europe then the 360 has..
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 08 June 2008)
Oemenia, the 360 is nonexistant in Europe? I live in Sweden, and 360 is beating out both PS3 AND Wii in Scandinavia. What are you on about?
Oemenia (on 27 May 2008)
Okay so you have a few Football football and DMC4 titles, yay? Youre right, Madden is casual and so is every other title because they sell better on 360?

Im sure you wouldnt want me to list just about every other multiplat that has sold better on 360? At the end of the day, sales mean nothing in determining quality, and so they can only be explained using rationality. The EU gamers in general do not know their games very well, even UK which is thought to be FAR more hardcore than the rest of EU, still buys a lot of trash.

The PS3 is gaining ground there, people are eating up the brand name despite at this moment the PS3 is yet to show why it is truely ahead of the 360. In fact the 360 is nonexistant there save for UK, where MOST EU sales are but also where 360 sales beat out PS3 in both software and hardware at times.

'Football' as they call it is popular in NA, its going to sell copies of Madden, but in general, casual games sell just as much in EU, whereas hardcore games sell FAR FAR FAR more in NA. NA is nowhere near as casual im sorry
MontanaHatchet (on 21 May 2008)
So.....Football (Soccer) titles sell well in Europe because the continent is casual? How are Football/Soccer games any more casual than the MLB or Madden series? America is easily as casual for buying so many crappy shooters and sports games with no improvements.

And it's hard to read your messages when you waste 2 paragraphs on this whole fanboy thing.
Oemenia (on 16 May 2008)
Thats awesome, youre talking about PS3s few victory's all over again, im sure you wouldnt want me to bring up every 360 victory.

Im PC gamer, so the next best place for me is 360, and i should be getting a PS3 on the 13th June. So please, when somebody gives their input, dont get an arousel and start flaming them

The PS3 has had a surge in EU, its currently the new thing, and EU is VERY casual hence Football titles sell.

DMC4 RIGHT now is behind LP and DR, maybe if you didnt always respond so defensively because of one precious victory, you would realise that those games have been out 3 or 4 times as long, yet DMC has hit a million FAR quicker

I didnt initially call anybody a fanboy, im talking about every fool here who is blowing out their ass over one game when just about every other multi-plat wins on 360.

And again, go ahead please prove im a 360 fanboy, just try, because like you, i must be relentlessly attacking anybody who disagrees with me
MontanaHatchet (on 15 May 2008)
So when you say overall sales, what exactly do you mean? So far, it's overall sales are BELOW Lost Planet and Dead Rising, unless we're talking about across both platforms, which is easy considering that Dead Rising isn't on the PS3 and Lost Planet was a port of an already average, or even mediocre game.

And I shouldn't call you a fanboy? Why do you go around to so many 360 pages if you don't even own the console? Buy it already! At least play games before you defend them.

Besides, what's this about "one precious victory?" Who says this victory is even precious? While the 360 wins on many multiplatform games, the PS3 stills beats it in pretty much every Soccer/Football game released, and competes head to head on most racing games despite having a much smaller userbase.

Don't get so offended when someone calls you a fanboy if you call them one first. You know, treat others like you like to be treated.
Oemenia (on 15 May 2008)
"Except you're a fanboy. You haven't even been on this site for very long and everyone can see it.

And it's much easier to have higher lifetime software sales when your console has been OUT LONGER."

Dude i dont even own a 360, so dont go around calling me a fanboy. The game has had FAR higher initial and overall sales than Lost Planet and Dead Rising, so its only in time itll beat those. And seriously, i didnt claim anything about any console being better, you and your insecurities led you to believe that

And i have been following this site for a VERY long time, the only difference is that im not so insecure about my precious console that i have to wait around because somebody disagrees with my one precious victory
FaRmLaNd (on 13 May 2008)
There is a lot of evidence to support the notion that the 360 is not only for shooters.

People spend too much time thinking the 360 is the xbox when in reality its audience is much broader then last generation.
squall747 (on 11 May 2008)
1 million sales thats great that should keep Capcom multiplatform. Further evidence to support the Xbox brand is no longer a shooters only console. Great performance despite deep Sony roots.
DeadOnArrival06 (on 11 May 2008)
I have this game for the PS3, but I must say I'm impressed that the 360 got a million sales with this game. For a game thats always been on a Sony console, it's pretty surprising to see a Microsoft console sell this many copies. I guess it's all those people who switched from PS2 to 360 and never got the PS3.
MontanaHatchet (on 11 May 2008)
Except you're a fanboy. You haven't even been on this site for very long and everyone can see it.

Oemenia (on 11 May 2008)
Why is this site full of so many fanboys? Some of the comments here are a joke, this is ONE victory, and the 360 software sales have been higher when compared at the lifetimes of both consoles.
MontanaHatchet (on 10 May 2008)
360 hopefuls, I hope you realize that the PS3 version is outselling the 360 version weekly despite very low Japanese sales for either version. Europe will end up being the swinging point for this game, and it has shown this already.

The PS3 version's lead may be slightly smaller by the time they stop selling, but it will still be a victory for Sony.
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 07 May 2008)
Yeees, finally hit a million!
jpelles (on 06 May 2008)
Depending on various things theres very real chance the 360 version could be the system with the most sold by the end of the year.
FaRmLaNd (on 06 May 2008)
Depending on sales in others this'll hit a million either this week or the next.
wareagle372 (on 05 May 2008)
there is one truth: Capcom did not regret sending DMC:4 to the 360.
Oemenia (on 04 May 2008)
So the PS3 one this round, given the fact that its surged in NA after the cuts and this is one of only few heavy hitters for the console it sold better. Regardless, Japan sales as we know simply stop, so the 250k its got there is only going to be slowly eroded. Also, NA sales have MUCH more staying power than EU, so who knows, the difference will be very small in years or so time

wareagle372 (on 03 May 2008)
the game's sales are now dropping like a bomb
FaRmLaNd (on 28 April 2008)
While that may be true, Japan is what gave the ps3 version the better sales overall as the disparity in sales there is huge. The 360 version at least sold a significant amount in others.
DOATS1 (on 25 April 2008)
@ farmland, the ONLY region the 360 version sold more was in the US though. so japan wasn't the only factor.
squall747 (on 25 April 2008)
This game should hit that 1 million mark. So I think Capcom will be satisfied with the performance of DMC 4 on both platforms.
FaRmLaNd (on 19 April 2008)
Nope. The main reason it was outsold by the ps3 version is because of the 360's inability to sell at all in Japan. Which was always going to happen with this game. Its a testament to na and other that this game is even comparable to the ps3 version in sales.
wareagle372 (on 17 April 2008)
the main reason the ps3 is selling more than the xbox360 is lots of people who bought PS3 were planning on buying this while 360 didn't so it is just a little treat for us who have 360s.
squall747 (on 05 April 2008)
Great game, the PS3 version may have outsold it worldwide. But in the States the 360 version sold more. So Capcom move paid off. I think they knew they'd see better sales in the US on the 360 version then the PS3. Despite it being a Sony exclusive all these years.
FaRmLaNd (on 21 March 2008)
Oh I noticed it. But its still selling well, so its no big loss.
Aj_habfan (on 21 March 2008)
Adjusting to fit NPD I assume.
Barozi (on 20 March 2008)
@Majin-Tenshinhan
You're right. I think we're the only 2 persons how recognized that
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 20 March 2008)
I can almost swear that the total sales for the 360 version were like 100k higher last week than they are now...
FaRmLaNd (on 18 March 2008)
The sales on the 360 version justify its existence though. It was a good decision to go multi-platform.
rukusa (on 18 March 2008)
You fucking PS3 onwers who keep agitating the 360 crowd should be fucking banned. Can't you just keep your mouths shut instead of provoking. Total shame of the PS3 crowd.

And this is coming from a PS3 only owner.
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 18 March 2008)
... Wasn't this a lot higher last week?
PooperScooper (on 17 March 2008)
This will NOT reach 1mil till end of this month if those numbers are now accurate.
PooperScooper (on 16 March 2008)
^ not if it drops another 25k this week.
Strategyking92 (on 15 March 2008)
@dogweed

so? Do I care? it really hasn't sold a million yet anyway, more like 995,000. they will both "really" pass a million next week..
DogWeed (on 15 March 2008)
@fred ps3 version sold a million before xbox haha even with the bigger install base
SpeedBreaker (on 13 March 2008)
too bad the ps3 version sold more xbox losers
fred (on 13 March 2008)
PS3 fanboys can carry on giving the 360 big sellers a bad score as it seems to help sales not reduce them, thanks PS3 owners keep up the good work for the 360..
DanBal76 (on 12 March 2008)
After the sucess of Dead Rising, Lost Planet and DMC4 on 360, i highly doubt Capcom will not release any of its future games on the 360. The sucess of DMC4 is even more impressive than Dead Rising and Lost Planet, since it belongs to a franchine that was born on the PlayStation family.
Strategyking92 (on 07 March 2008)
"The 360 did get the better version so its no surprise that the 360 version will pull ahead in the end.

Be nice to see a special edition for the Wii a year from now, though its very doubtful."

I am so goddamn tired of hearing about the f***ing Wii!!!!!!
4D Gamer III (on 07 March 2008)
Wow, just noticed the score. PS3 fanboys have to be the most bitter and petty people in the whole world. Guess they have to accept the PS3 has lost them most of the exclusives they once cherished as Sony only games. I imagine the "Substance" version of MGS4 will even be on the 360 as well.
4D Gamer III (on 07 March 2008)

Lafiel (on 05 March 2008)
after this weeks adjustments it seems it will be a very close race between PS3 and 360 versions
islandking (on 01 March 2008)
sales number should be more compared to the game quality
Bagaren85 (on 27 February 2008)
*PS3 fanboys was here*

ssj12 (on 27 February 2008)
The 360 version is selling shockingly well. I guess the 6.86 million more users does help sales.
Strategyking92 (on 27 February 2008)
xbox version ahead by .01 million.
Crystalchild (on 26 February 2008)
both versions are great!

i played the PS3 version, and the 360 version. its just a question about the Controller, with wich one you wanna play ? thats the only question.
SleepWaking (on 26 February 2008)
It seems the 360 version is surpassing the Ps3 version this week.
De85 (on 25 February 2008)
For now Barney, for the past two weeks the 360 version has been closing the gap. My money's on it to hit 1 million first.
barney (on 25 February 2008)
Yet another game to sell better on the PS3.
Daddo Splat (on 24 February 2008)
Just beat it on devil hunter mode unlocked a couple other things dam you gotta roll through this game 5 times and be great to get some serious gamer score after 1 x thru I got about 150 off it!

great game and story the little play wth dante and the Scientist priceless!
I LOVE GIGGS (on 24 February 2008)
GREAT Game
everyone should buy it !
Riot Of The Blood (on 22 February 2008)
I gave it a 1 just to be a jackass. The 360 is actually the version that I bought.
rukusa (on 22 February 2008)
Seriously, dont target me though. I didnt touch the rating here :/. Just cause Im here commenting doesnt mean Ive had anything to do with the rating.

11ht11 (on 22 February 2008)
ps3 7.60/10
360 5.57/10

both have the same graphics and gameplay, but xbox 360 games always get lower scores lol, why?
Strategyking92 (on 21 February 2008)
I'll admit that i'm annoyed, i'll come back in 2 hours after playing halo 3, but I might be longer.
rukusa (on 21 February 2008)
' "You got to laugh at the idiots who come to the 360 version and post their comments about my reply i.e "Im being defensive and trying to bust down the PS3 version" ?... '

'...., you really need to take up a hobby, but anyway well done Capcom a very good business decision indeed." '

Oh shit youre really are being defensive. Thanks Fred.

Does it make you angry Fred that not everything is like you want it to be? Does it? You dont need to answer that ;).


"LMAO I asked why be bothered about PS3 owners giving it a bad score?"

Okay hold that shit right there. Then you followed it up by saying....

"it makes no difference to the sales so just sit back and laugh at them for being so sad.."

Since youre in need to repeat yourself twice, its just showing that you are annoyed. You should do a better job handling these things fred. Youre showing a pretty bad pokerface performance dude :/.
Jessman (on 21 February 2008)
Fair enough if you support a football team, but why would anyone in their right mind display loyalty to a corporation like Microsoft or Sony (or Sega or Nintendo)? Games is games, and turning a blind eye to the faults of a profit making business, and dismissing other brands in support of your own, is at best blinkered, and, at worst, cripplingly sad.
wareagle372 (on 20 February 2008)
Most people here are just glad this game is on the 360. this game was suppose to be an exclusive for PS3, and to have the game able to play is just fine with me.
mullinsmcd (on 20 February 2008)
I read in an article that Capcom sold 2 million copies of DMC4 across platforms. I know that they don't mean "sell-through" numbers but the difference between 1 million and 2 million seems pretty big. Either these numbers are higher or Capcom is lying.

Either way, I love the game. The main complain that I found in the reviews (which ended up being valid after playing) was that halfway through the game you switch characters and you're forced to go through the same environments and same bosses all over again just in reverse. I was hoping that you could play through the game with all new environments and areas for one character and then play through the same ones again with a new character in a new playthru (much like DMC3 collectors edition) but the repetition is unavoidable.

I would still suggest this to anyone who hasn't picked this game up yet.
Phil4387 (on 20 February 2008)
Yes, very good show Capcom. Who would have thought that releasing on multiple platforms would increase sales of a game rather than releasing on just one platform. O,O
fred (on 20 February 2008)

@Fred

"Wow 360 version is really outselling the PS3 version"

*looks at 360 number 460.000 copies to the left, looks at PS3 numbers 610.000 to the right*

....what? :/


"Why is anyone bothered that PS3 fanboyz give a 360 game a low score?"

Youre trying way too hard to find an excuse to bust down on the PS3 version. Youre being way too defensive.

SpeedBreaker (on 19 February 2008)
and give the 360 version of lost planet a 1 :]
SpeedBreaker (on 19 February 2008)
@fred

hey moron, the ps3 version is outselling the 360 version.

ha ha.
Phil4387 (on 19 February 2008)
@ fred

I think you should check-up on the PS3 version's #s... you might be surprised.
fred (on 19 February 2008)
And get ready to give the PS3 version of Lost Planet a 1 out of 10 :)
fred (on 19 February 2008)
Wow 360 version is really outselling the PS3 version, I bet Capcom are happy they decided to go to the 360 now.

Why is anyone bothered that PS3 fanboyz give a 360 game a low score?, it makes no difference to the sales so just sit back and laugh at them for being so sad..
kirby007 (on 17 February 2008)
ROFL you this is so funny who the hell cares :D ROFL
Mummelmann (on 17 February 2008)
Does this game deserve such a low score? It has gotten many solid reviews and looks fun, even for me despite not being a DMC fan!
xstonexcold316x (on 17 February 2008)
wow thats horribly sad whoever is doing this should get a life...

koopatrooper (on 17 February 2008)
thats cool
Riot Of The Blood (on 17 February 2008)
Please don't do stuff like this, dude. The mods have better things to do than clean stuff like this up. I do think it's funny and awesome, but just think of what the mods have to go through cleaning this up.
Quartz (on 17 February 2008)
Woah! Picture whorage!
Phoenix_Wiight (on 17 February 2008)
really bad compared to the ps3 version
Versarin22 (on 16 February 2008)
Xbox fanboys always talk about how the ps3 version has the 20 min install.

im talking about how you guys cant even play ur own games online without have to pay microsoft an "im bitched" fee. Microsoft made you their bitches. Now shower in the ads.
Versarin22 (on 16 February 2008)
just voted it a 1, going to ps3 voting it 10. noobs

Haha, nice screenshot.
mikeferro99 (on 15 February 2008)
@Daddo Splat,

Realistically, I've played both versions of the game on PS3 and Xbox 360 and you can't tell any difference. Xbox 360 looks a little darker as usual, and PS3 version looks a little brighter again as usual.
The deal breaker as I have mentioned in my previous post was the annoying load screen between walking through doors.. I mean wtf is this resident evil? There should be no load screen when walking through doors especially when you have to run back and forth between rooms.
Kleppemeister (on 14 February 2008)
Asking how we would feel if the PS3 got Gears of War? I wouldent give a shit, good for you, you get to experience a really awsome game if that was to happen. But i guess the game wouldent do to well on the PS3, as it dosent seem like thats the kind of game the average PS3 user would like to play.

Also, I agree with ManOfTeal, Im not a fan boy, but i have issues with Sony. Not the playstation 3, but the company that makes it.
regin2005 (on 14 February 2008)
This page is pathetic.
ManOfTeal (on 14 February 2008)
And for the record, I am not a fanboy of anything. I own a Wii60 and I detest the PS3 because I have grievences with Sony.
Jessman (on 14 February 2008)
Sony fanboys... go kill yourselfs... do me a favour... for the love of god.
Daddo Splat (on 13 February 2008)
@ imballa9 Some screens and reveiwers have stated that lighting effectd hdr dynamic lighting is better on 360 other then that they look they same 360 chip has 48 pixel shaders to 24 for for the ps3 and has on board HDR the PS3 does thru software not as clean as hardware! thats why almost every crossplatfrom game the 360 gets the edge graphically because shadows and lighting!

Needless to say I played the demos on both system they both played great
and looked great

Iam for crossplatform games if it means better games! theses software companies have to make thier money! something like 1/2 million to break even on PS2 100000 was the break even point so as a cross platformer if it pushes 2 million total its very successful and with 7 million more potential customers in usa on 360 its a no brainer for capcom!

hell I bet if a halo game ever hit PS3 they would boycott it saying go a away we have enough great games!

enough great games when never! Go 360!
Faxanadu (on 13 February 2008)
@ stof, @ Montana: please permaban all the ps3 fanboys who went rampant here. this is quite pathetic.
MontanaHatchet (on 13 February 2008)
Actually, it looks like a watermelon, but I didn't want it to look like the PS3 page.
Riot Of The Blood (on 13 February 2008)
This page looks awesome.
MontanaHatchet (on 13 February 2008)
You guys suck!

I'm going to do a favor to this game page and make it look beautiful! It deserves it for all the work you guys put into ruining it!

The 360 needs some love too...
johnsobas (on 13 February 2008)
they're both almost the exact same thing, it's pathetic to hear people arguing over minor differences like this.
fred (on 13 February 2008)
Heres an idea if you have a PS3 then go to the PS3 version and comment and if you have a 360 then play the childish game and go rate it a 1 on the PS3 version..

And that Xiru forgets his PS3 takes 8 second longer to load levels on Orange box when both systems use their dvd drive. He seems to have a very limited memory..
erikers (on 13 February 2008)
So why don't you get rid of them like a mod should? Nobody ever gets banned here permanently, which is why all these asses run around trolling every game page and thread. Any kind of post should be deletable on a site anyways. Site's that take the community seriously like the gaf forums or gamespot or any huge forum's immediately delete the garbage that comes in and makes sure they are IP banned. Nothing happens here for some reason.
stof (on 13 February 2008)
And this is why I wish we could delete game page posts. What the hell is wrong with you people?
Xiru (on 12 February 2008)
Go play Lost Odyssey and then tell me a 20 minute install sucks and I will laugh in your face. Horrible load times between battles, almost unplayable. The PS3 will basically do away with load times if companies keep doing installs. I just hope they give us an option next time. But its great playing the game with no loading. Remember, with the 360 every second counts because it could RROD at any minute!
fabledgamer (on 12 February 2008)
Man, why are people hating on this game so much. It's a very good game regardless of what system you play it on.
Strategyking92 (on 12 February 2008)

imaballa99 (on 12 February 2008)
@ManofTeal,

oh Boy, i commend you if you think 5-8 sec. wait time is negligible, I guess im too impatient, when I walk through a door i want to be in the other room right away not sit looking at a blinking "Loading screen" for 5 - 8 sec. I was afraid to go out side without completing a puzzle because I knew if I didn't complete it, I would have to back track like 5 times before figuring something out.

Yea, I do have to agree with you games have been really dumbed down for main stream audience. Gears of War, Heavenly Sword, Bioshock all way too easy. Used to be near impossible to beat bosses, now most of the FPS don't even have bosses.
ManOfTeal (on 12 February 2008)
The load times on the 360 version is negligable at best.

The point is that games recently have been well, easy. You have to admit that every once in a while it is good to have a game that presents a little challenge like DMC4 does.
swordplay (on 12 February 2008)
DMC 4 is good no matter for what system you get it, but I bought it for the PS3 for the low load times.
imaballa99 (on 12 February 2008)
@ManofTeal
I have both systems so I can play all the great games! I can play exclusives: Resistance 2, Metal Gear on PS3, and Alan Wake, Too Human, on 360. I play Bioshock, Gears of War on PC for the better graphics. I'm a little disappointed they announced today Mass Effect is coming to PC in May with better graphics, im regretting my purchase.

I rented DMC4 for Xbox 360, been on the wait list from Gamefly. I usually rent games im on the fence till I judge if its purchase worthy.
I really started getting pissed off about the load screen every time you have to walk through a door.
Once I found out about the 2 sec. load time on PS3, it was a nobrainer if you have played the 360 version.

@Girl Gamer elite,
no, the graphics are pretty much the same, you won't be able to tell the difference at all. Its not really surprising considering the developers said they use the same texture files. Can't really say there would be a difference if they used the same texture picture file for both systems.
It's not like Oblivion, where PS3 version had the higher rez texture files, different texture picture files all together.

Actually the 360 got the version with better graphics. Or do no load times and a now slightly smaller HDD capacity mean more to you than graphics?

Why would anyone waste their money buying the same game for both PS3 and Xbox360 consoles? Sounds like fanboy BS to me.

Do you have DMC4 for 360? It takes about 5-8 sec. walking through the door. you can say 5 sec. optimistically, but realistically majority of the times it takes 8 sec. (it seems usually 5 sec. when going into a small room which is rare, and 8 sec. when going into the larger areas like the cathedral or open space which is way more frequent)

Loading the level takes 10 seconds.
Worthplaying.com verifies the 10 seconds level load:

On the PS3 the game play doesn't feel as interrupted when walking through doors, you walk from one room to another snap your finger twice and your there.
On the 360 I started getting pissed off when I had to back track because I missed something in the previous room, that load screen between rooms can start pissing you off when you have to run around to solve the damn puzzles.

that HD install on PS3 is def. worth it, if you have a choice get the PS3 version for a smoother, and less frustrating experience, but if you only have one system then well just be patient and don't throw your controller when you get stuck on a puzzle.

Also whats up with the 360 versions awkward control scheme? You have to hold on to the bumper while executing the actions, it must be because the bumber is analog not digital.

Stupid sony fanboys.

Yeah, install 25 min for 1-2 sec faster loading time.
Same version else. Great game!

all ur gay 360 fanboys. ps3 does load faster than 360 version and if u played dmc before. u will buy the ps3 version. because of the controller. would u like to play halo 3 in a ps3 controller??

and 10 euro cheaper (that's why I got it for the 360 next to achievements)
SleepWaking (on 10 February 2008)
not 8-10 only 4-5 while you have to wait 2-3 wooh that's a really big improvement. I hate it when people talk BS. DMC4 on the 360 is just as good.
imaballa99 (on 10 February 2008)
yea but you have to wait 8-10 sec. every single time you walk through a door.
On PS3 you only have to wait 2 sec. I guess you never played DMC before, you do alot of walking through doors, and alot of back tracking through the same doors.

Its exactly like Oblivion situation. Oblivion on PS3 no load time, Xbox 360 loads every 10 feet you walk.

HAHAHHA ps3 users have to wait freakin 20mins before playing and the loading times on the 360 are nothing!! lol hats fucked up. People were saying that it was going to be really long to load from room to room but is not true and I dont have to wait 20 mins!! lol
DeadOnArrival06 (on 09 February 2008)
I predict the 360 version not even selling 600,00 whereas the PS3 version selling well over a million.
DeadOnArrival06 (on 09 February 2008)
Don't bitch because Playstation got the better version.
Username2324 (on 08 February 2008)
For all those who think the 20 minute install time is too much, consider this, average load times on the PS3 are 2-3 seconds, and 8-10 on the 360, you get that time back pretty fast throughout the game.
MontanaHatchet (on 08 February 2008)
Wow, this game page sucks!
ManOfTeal (on 07 February 2008)
The PS3 version has a 20 minute installation you have to sit through. The Xbox 360 version does not. Just FYI. Yet anothr reason why I am glad I bought an Xbox 360 and not a PS3.
DeadOnArrival06 (on 05 February 2008)
Damn right I'm mad it went to 360. How would your bitch ass feel if Gears Of War went to Playstion?
Riot Of The Blood (on 29 January 2008)
1 for this version, 10 for PS3 version.
AK15 (on 25 January 2008)
