    If sales forced them into developing games for them why were most of PS2 most popular games not ported to the x-box or gamecube?

    Because it would not have sold as well. :slap: and many ports for Xbox and GCN were ports of the PS2 version...why Madden always looked like crap when on Xbox or Gamecube....Gamecube was more powerful than PS2 easily ....PS2 had a 294 MHz CPU while GCN had a 485MHz CPU and Xbox 733 MHz..yet GCN sold 21 million systems and Xbox 24 million world wide...PS2 100 mill (granted much of that is the older brick systems sucked and broke down and people replaced them often) but there is still great demand for PS2 because of the games it has.

    See the biz works as simple as this if system sells alot that is where the majority of the audience is so make money there if system does not sell as well..that is where less people buy the product...that is why PS2 had the most games...yes every once in a while a developer wants a system with power and tries to make a game on that console and sometimes it's great and sells well but that is a minority as there is a few exceptions to every rule.

    PSp for example is much more powerful than DS but is has sold 19 mill systems world wide and DS has sold 35 mill ..in 2006 alone DS sold 27 million games and PSP sold 2 million games....many developers have dropped off PSP in favour of DS...many PS3 games have been cancled or moved to 360 or moved multiplatform because PS3 is just not selling/tough to develop for.

    That has nothing to do with the PS3 being hard to develop for, nor being canceled.

    and GTA is massively over-rated.

    Having basically the same specs doesn't mean they are equal. The cell processor is very powerful by itself and it was created to run in many applications... the PS3 is just one of them. The 360's processor is actually cheaper to manufacture than the cell processor and blue ray.

    iSuppli has a nice comparison table between estimated costs of the PS3 and 360.

    That logic would make sense for average and below average games, but definitely not for big games such as GTA, which was indeed ported to the Xbox -- the revenue might not be as big as on the PS2, but it will be worth it regardless.

    As for Madden, the graphics on Xbox and Gamcube have always been equal or slightly better than the PS2.

    What games have been cancelled? I know that Konami cancelled some PS3 games, though, some Wii games were cancelled as well. Another one is WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2007, but that was because of time constrains and they stated that the next version will be available on the PS3.

    There are actually several games that are being ported to the PS3 such as Saints Row, Oblivion and Double Agent.

    yes, but you have to pay for each individual song. **** that ****.
