Xbox 360 Games Gain Variety
An independent study found that of the 137 Xbox 360 games available from launch through August, only 17 percent of them are first- and third-person shooters. The report comes amid criticism that Microsoft's console lacks a variety of games.
According to FPS Source, the largest percentage of games found on 360 are action/adventure games with 26 percent share followed by 25 percent being sports games and 17 percent being shooters (11 percent first-person, 6 percent third-person).
Vehicle games accounted for 13 percent share, followed by RPG and party games each with six percent, fighting games with three percent, and real-time strategy and puzzle games with a combined three percent share.
The study is said to include the majority of the Xbox 360 games that have been released (or will be released) through August excluding future titles such as Halo 3. Also excluded were Xbox Live Arcade games.
