- PS3:360 USA March 2009 Install Base Ratio (approx): 0.4932
- PS3:360 USA March 2009 RE5 Sales Ratio: 0.6237
- PS3:360 USA March 2009 Killzone 2:Halo Wars Ratio: 0.4632
Killzone 2 sales are a surprising disappointment.
This isn’t about game quality and it’s not about system price. Looking at the RE5 platform ratios and the overall install base ratios, clearly PS3 owners are buying games, but Sony isn’t able to manufacture game brands that resonate with US kids like Microsoft repeatedly has with Call of Duty, Gears of War, and Halo.
