The following are CAGs most ordered gaming items from Amazon.com (through CAG affliliate links) during Q1 2010 (Jan 1st to Mar 31st).

As usual, Xbox 360 titles and those with Amazon credit pre-order bonuses dominated the list.

:360: 27
:ps3: 12
:wii: 6
:ds: 3

It seems like too many places on the internet are intentionally boosting the stats for what is widely regarded (on unpaid and unbiased sites anyway) as the worst console this gen. The 360 is a heap of garbage and the sooner people learn this the better.

Exactly what I was thinking!!!!!! This guy is always trying to tell people that the 360 is crap, but he's probably just bummed out about his $600 launch PS3 that YLOD'ed.

See, two can play the fanboy-game!!! (Note: I'm really not a fanboy, I just can't stand this guy!!! Love playing MW2 with my friends on the PS3!!!)

Fro is right, I was going to say the same thing. I also see 2 controllers, wtf? It seems like too many places on the internet are intentionally boosting the stats for what is widely regarded (on unpaid and unbiased sites anyway) as the worst console this gen. The 360 is a heap of garbage and the sooner people learn this the better. It doesn't even sell outside the US, what can that tell you? There is nothing of value on that thing that can't be had better elsewhere and we've seen the results of 'buying the cheaper (cheaply made) console'.

Maybe M$ is trying to buy credibilty. Buying good reviews and hype. Oh, and exclusives too which, if they're truly worth playing, don't actually remain exclusive. It's quite sad.

:lol:
Cheapy, stop boosting stats! Sell your piece of shit xbox! Hell, stop playing video games and cancel the CAGcast!

I just got a big check from Microsoft. The instructions state that any further ridiculous trolling posts from DPsx7 should be deleted. If he continues, he is to be banned.

It is kinda weird that the first games on that list are a preorder Wii game and Mulitiplat PS3 game and then a Multiplat LE 360 game.

Stop with that excuse, k? I own both consoles this gen because I won't disregard the Wii and the PS3 plays everything else, plus I have a huge collection of earlier consoles from Atari, Sega, Coleco, and so on.

I'm just stating the obvious, so as usual the fankids always cry when I post negatively about their weak little toy. On this list alone there are 5 entries that don't belong. They fudge the numbers in favor of the console that would be dead last in reality. I mean I'm glad you bugtest the games for us during the 6 month exclusive window your games receive but the countless lies hidden behind the numbers need to stop.

Speaking of Halo Reach, has it ever gone down from $59.99 on amazon since the $20 credit promo was offered? I'd love it if it went down to around $55 so I could benefit from the pre-order guarantee. Probably won't though because it's a major title and amazon knows it.

Glad to see Battlefield that high. Great game.

This is a list of what people ordered. People order more than games. Not sure why people are making an issue out of this...if it bothers someone that much they can ignore the points cards/controllers/whatever.

You can't ban me for speaking the truth

I've yet to see you "speak the truth," but regardless, you can be banned for anything - this isn't a democracy. Speaking of which, the fact that you're an idiot is as good a reason as any to throw your dumb ass out of here.

... And now I see this list claiming the 360 has 27 spots when 20% of them aren't even games. Don't you see what I'm getting at?

This list is from me! It's cut and pasted from my Amazon affiliate report and shows what video game items CAGs ordered from from Amazon during the last three months. Unless they visited CAG and purchased these items from Amazon, neither Microsoft, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, nor anyone else has any impact on this list.

Obviously Sony peripherals would appear on the list too if they were purchased as frequently.

I am a bit surprised by a few of the games on the list, the 12-month XBL does not seen out of place, seeing that it's had so many sales.

DPsx7, did you ever think maybe your just a bit too butthurt over something that should not affect your life this much? Maybe you should move your internet crusade to something more important, like solving world hunger or curing cancer, because raging over the 360 is kind of pointless.

So please, calm down, you look pathetic. Unless of course an xbox360 killed your parents, threw your grandmother down the stairs, pissed in your gas tank, shit in your shoes, and raped your dog. In that case, carry on.

This is interesting, but only as a list of games that people on CAG who click affiliate links buy. It doesn't seem to match up well with Amazon's March best sellers in video games list, which I suspect Amazon cares just a little bit more about:

http://www.amazon.co...ef=pd_ts_vg_mte

The PS3 has the top two spots (GoW3 and FFXIII). The 360 doesn't have anything at all show up until spot #9 (BFBC2). Also the Wii console is at #3 and the PS3 slim 120GB is at #5. The 360 console doesn't show until spot #80 (though that is perhaps affected by the too-many-skus approach Microsoft always takes).

PS3 has 29 items in the top 100
360 has 27 items in the top 100
Wii has 25 items in the top 100
DS has 12 items in the top 100

Numbers may be slightly off as I'm doing that tally by hand. Just speaking of the top 25 it looks like this:

PS3: 8 (7 are games)
Wii: 8 (4 are games)
360: 6 (4 are games)
DS: 2 (2 are games)

In just the top 10:

Wii: 4 (2 games, 1 console, 1 accessory)
PS3: 3 (2 games, 1 console)
DS: 2 (2 games)
360: 1 (1 game)

So, basically you've got a web site headlined by a podcast that is heavily pro-360 and especially anti-Wii, and people are surprised that then the readership tends to be pro-360?

Incidentally, I have a Wii and a 360 and I like both a lot, though lately I've been playing the Wii more. It varies.

EDIT: added DS total to top 100 and corrected Wii total (missed one before)
EDIT2: it's also worth noting that sales numbers are skewed by deals, so all these numbers need to be taken with a grain of salt, though overall it gives you some idea of the popularity.

Really...1 PC game? Come on CAG! Pull your heads out of your ass and get on the freakin' PC!!!

Valve's STEAM client is the freaking shit and is the model of what digital distribution should be!

Wow, the top item is something that people shouldn't have to pay for anyway and yet they do.


So says the guy with just a PS3 trophy sig. Thank you for your unbiased input!

The PC does a bit better on the Amazon top 100 for March, with 5 PC games. Still trailing everything else, though.

Wow, I love my PS3 as the next guy but come on. 360 controller is up there as well as points because those things had huge discounts in March. If Sony or whoever discounted PS3 controller or PSN cards you'd see those on that list too. Take it easy man, you don't wanna get a heart attack at 30.
