funny how he chose to leave out MGS 4, which has sold more than 5 million.

Gee whiz, it's unlike CVG to post a flame baiting article like this. I'm shocked. :shock:

Surely even the most adamant Xbox fan must struggle to like this guy, right?

As for the substance of what he said, it's a statistic I'd struggle to care for if the shoe was on the other foot. I don't really care how many copies Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, GOW3 have sold - I'm just glad that the console I own has them all to play in the first place.

Be fair, no one at Microsoft is ever arrogant. :lol:

^ This. As good as Halo is, sales figures don't make a game good. See Valkyria Chronicles, probably my favorite game of this gen, or Yakuza 3. Both sold poorly are veritably excellent.

He's like Microsoft's Jack Tretton. Why don't Nintendo sack Cammie and get a loudmouthed waste?

theaface did you not notice the 12 year old Xbot in weker.... you know the one choking on nuts haha.

Back to the topic Greenburg describes the Xbox 360 in everyway IMO. Way to many t**ts and kids, has to much confidence in itself and REALLY is to American.

Dont get me wrong i own a 360 and love loads of its exclusives especially Gears and Alan Wake but to me its a PC for 12 years olds

The fact the 360 leads the PS3 in the U.S. by about 10 million units doesnt make this too hard to believe.

It would seem the battlegrounds are being drawn for E3 already, a minutes silence for the Fallen Fanboys please.

*Minutes silence starts only for it to be drowned out by the roar of the incoming inevitable, after 3 seconds :lol: .*
