Forget best action game of the generation, the best action game made yet. Admittedly the PS3 version was very disappointing compared to the 360 version. Perhaps the game would have sold better on PS3 had Platinum favored that platform over the 360.

This game is great. The combat is really fluid and the move set is just awesome. Also neat to see the "lesser" version (PS3) outsell the 360 version this last week and overall. That is surprising, maybe the patch did some wonders?

Longstory short the game is great even if its inferior to its 360 counter part i'd still recommend it its that fun but man couldn't they have atleast given an install option?

Crap port of assassin creed 1 for ps3, and this game sell well, where is the logic?
Bayo was a exclu 360 at the begining, all 360 port to ps3 are inferior because ps3 architecture is not good for multi game for all developpers.

SEGA makes largely bad games. People eventually catch on and stop buying from publishers that release garbage. I was going to buy this or Darksiders the other day. Bayonetta lost out when I saw the SEGA logo on it. I've played too many horrible SEGA titles to give them another chance.

Well, I'm shocked that this game is performing so poorly in America on both systems. 50k on ps3, and only 90k on 360 first week isn't that great for a game that I've seen plastered all over the internet for the past 4 months. I'll probably get the 360 version after I play Mass Effect 2.

Of course has nothing to do with the fact, that the userbase in Japan is almost 4:1 in favour of the PS3.
Yet the sales are more like 2:1 in favour of the PS3 version........

Got this game and it's not really a bad port. The loading is not really a game breaker just a little annoying sometimes. Overall people should really get this game.

I'm amazed the PS3 version is outselling the 360 version which is suppose to be the superior version.

The loading times are bullshit in this game. Everytime you get an item it takes 5 minutes to load or when your in your inventory or get a book or press start to skip a cutscene. Man I've only played 10 chapters of this game and I'm thinking of bringing it back already. The gameplay is brilliant but those loading times really take the enjoyment out of it and I havn't even experianced the framerates issues people have been talking about yet.

Haha, yeah. Killzone 2's loading times annyed me much more than this. Even loading chapters in Uncharted 2 to get all the treasures was worse.

About the framerate though... parts of the second last chapter are almost in slow motion. It's bad. The rest of the game runs fine though.

I preordered from GS and got my poster collection. It's awesome. Gonna frame them x). As for the port, seriously, get over it. Once you actually play the game you won't notice. The action is so incredibly fast paced that it seems too much at times. And yes, I've played and beaten NG on MNM and DMCs on DMD.

Frame-rate is never a problem. Loading is a slight problem for the incredibly impatient (I'm impatient but it never gets to me). But they aren't that bad. Hell, you wanna complain about loading times? Go play Killzone 2.
