    1 game does not exactly prove that 360 gamers only buy shooters.
    how else do you explain 7 of the top 10 games played on the system are shooters?
    and 2 of those are the most popular franchises, much more popular then some of the other shooters.
    sounds like a fair comment to me!

    You know, PS3′s just the same. The bestselling game on PS3 of all time is….guess what….Call of Duty: Black Ops… I”m sure MW3 will overtake it.

    obviously, but look at all the sales of non shooter 360 exclusives.
    alan wake, forza, too human, all fantastic games which have sold pretty poorly.
    theres a reason why every 360 exclusive shooter sells pretty well, and every 360 exclusive non shooter struggles to sell anywhere near it!
