It seems that the Xbox 360 is the gamer's choice for online gaming. Recent data from the NPD Group says that the Xbox 360 sold roughly twice as many online-capable games as the PS3 in 2010. And the Wii? No contest. Microsoft's console sold seven times as many online-capable games as the Wii. The data does not detail how frequently these games were played online, but I'm sure it's safe to assume that the Xbox 360 would come out on top in online usage.

The Xbox 360 also comes out on top when it comes to retail point cards. According to Gamasutra, retailers sold nearly four times as many Xbox 360 digital points cards than PS3 cards in 2010. Graphs show that the Xbox 360 has always been on top for both game cards and online software, from 2006 through today.

It's probably going to stay that way for a long time.

'I love this game. It's sooo awesome!'

Techland did its best to hold off on handing out Dying Light review codes until the day before release. That's never good. But Techland doesn't need to cherry pick reviews for box quotes when it can pay for them. No, this is the future. And the future is sooo awesome!more

Joystiq is reportedly shutting down

I stayed in bed longer than I should have this morning. It was an unlikely occurrence because I woke up rejuvenated and feeling great, ready to take on the world. As I lay in bed and opened Twitter on my phone, I was hit by a...more
