Just to prove exclusivity sells, remember when the FFXIII Demo was released with Advent Children Complete in Japan? Yeah, sales soared over 200% for that month. Big name titles being released on a single system will help that system a lot, even though FFXIII is multiplat, the demo was not, and it sold more PS3s than a lot of the games already out there.

Let alone FF13 will be exclusive to PS3 for at least a year too. Yeah its only in japan, but thats going to boost sales alot. Well known titles have a better effect then just randomly announcing exclusive games.

lol yea like Prototype is sell worse on PS3 because mainly of inFAMOUS IMO i mean i think it would sell alot better if inFAMOUS would not have come out until next year. I do think that alot of games dont sell that well on PS3 because there are exclusives that are quality and because there are more 360's out there and they dont seem to nearly the exclusives that the PS3 does

It was Activision's choice, they could have delayed Prototype and taken more time to work on it but they didn't, so inFamous kicked it to the curb and won against it, Sucker Punch simply did a better job, hence the sales are better than Prototype's sales on the PlayStation 3. Even games that are multi-platform have done quite well on the PlayStation 3 compared to the 360, Grand Theft Auto IV comes to mind because the sales of that game in the first 5 days of availability were 1.85 million for the 360 and 1 million for the PS3 despite the 360 having how many more consoles sold at the time. The 360 doesn't sell as many exclusives because there are simply not as many good exclusives, I mean you got Halo, Gears of War and, I actually have run out of ideas, oh wait maybe Fable. Unknown exclusives will obviously sell less, people don't know about them, hence they will be hesitant at first to drop their money on the game compared to a known series, i.e. Grand Theft Auto IV.

Prototype is just the product of a studio that consistently puts out sub-par games,
extra dev time may have just resulted in some more gfx refinements

Sold better? It is outselling infamous and it's been out about half as long, in all fairness
it is across 2 consoles however

It would have about 200k to 300k more sales if they decided to wait and polish it. You cant compete with PS3 exclusives if your no where near the same level as them, and to be honest Prototype disapointed me when compared to InFamous. It has potential, but activision had to have it out now for some reason.

Its doing fine though. It would be doing amazing if it wasnt combating InFamous, or came out first.

I think thats a rosy picture at best, they wouldve had to sat on it for another year because it would be smothered if released later by all the blockbusters on the horizon,
polish is important but timing is as well

IDK horizons have an act for fading. While right now was a pretty prime time as the only other third party game worth buying is Ghostbusters. I still think it should of came out either before InFamous, or the minute they saw InFamous getting good sales they should of backed it up to July and even August, if not then a whole year. EA did it with a few games, like how the new BF is no longer coming out this year thanks to COD6 expecting to be huge.

backing it up in the face of strong sales may just agitate your potential buyers into
listening to the good word of mouth you are afraid of, taking the pushback as a lack
of faith in the title and just buying inFamous instead of waiting

We have to remember here that Prototype is selling and selling even better than
infamous despite some perceived flaws, the game had an unexpected hype train,
pulling in 100k+ views on its content on gametrailers, activision just struck while
the iron was still hot and it paid off as far as sales go

i should have specified it would have sold better on the PS3. i dont think it is hurting the 360 sales at all but they are losing PS3 sales because of inFAMOUS but then this could be a good reason for Activison to pull the PS3 support maybe this is what they wanted
