I have a slight answer to this, but I'd like to see if anyone else has ideas as to why there are so few Xbox Armored Core players on the forums before I will give my attempted explanation.

you fucking tryhard

Aren't there entire forums dedicated to xbox teams. I'm sure they're keeping to each other circle jerking about how good they are.

I dont know what that Reaching Perfection place really is but I'm sure it's one of them.

Mechanetwork was crammed full of xbox players, but my guess is they wouldn't like coming to ACL because it has a very PS3 vibe about it. They wouldn't like Raven Rebpublic because it's very PS3 as well. They wouldn't like ACU because it's PS3 but also because ACU hates VD. I'm not sure what the new Raven's Haven is but its historical core community were all old ac players and chances are they play PS3 as well.

1. Forums are a joke. Few people ever know what they are talking about.
2. Drama. Drama. Drama.
3. Usually is a place for shitty people to post accomplishments. "I beat so and so/so and so's team". MV was especially bad about this.


The reason I'm still around: there are a couple people on this forum that I enjoy having conversations with who actually have a clue about AC. It has nothing to do with PS3 biased forums or whatever, the only people I talk to on forums are on the ps3 side. The 360 side generally doesn't have a clue.

I play xbox acvd but I did notice that the dominant posters on here are ps3 and i also was wondering where the xbox players were.not that it makes a difference to me at all as I played V on xbox and ps3 and got on with all the players I met. But have to admit that the ps3 V players played long after the xbox community had died.in my team at the moment just me on out of 13 members most of the time my team mates say waiting for the next patch and when that comes out they will find something wrong with it and stop playing again.isnt the point of ac to adapt to the patch with new builds? So yes I would say that a ps3 dominated site may put them off .

i think its due to console marketing and genre bias.

Xbox tends to be marketed towards popular FPS, adventure, and simple action genre games.

PS3 tends to house more RPG, fighting, and various nitch games

PS3 players who are into said genres find the nitch strategy of ACVD more up their alley and tend to be more dedicated/competetive/over 10 years old (im looking at you call of duty)
Every build can be explained to work... on paper...

The most recent incarnations of ACO were very Xbox heavy, but I think the majority of that was due to some very outspoken SUNN guys.

Isn't it just because the people on forums happen to play on PS3, and the people who don't join happen to be on Xbox....

Hell, if I hadn't first gotten AC4 for the PS3, I'd be one of them Xbox players.

This, by a long shot. The initial ACVD sales for the Xbox were.... shockingly disappointing, 4 figures, but I don't think that would stop the 5000+ who did buy from frequenting a forum site. 5000+ would be an awesome base for an online community, so while I think that answers some of it when it comes to overall quantity, but it's not the entire equation.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, and I think it was said here, but ACO and Reaching Perfection were the 2 sites most visited and active from the Xbox side. ACO had a "accidental deletion" whatever the hell that means, and while Reaching Perfection is still there, its creator and one of their main draws, is not, unless he's made a recent return. Early on, for the show, we were going to have Godly Perfection on, it was all but planned, waiting for a date back from him, but he disappeared. Shame too, I was really looking forward to speaking with him.


Nowadays, I would guess that the majority of the AC Xbox crowd can be found scattered on the many multi-purpose, multi-game forums all about the interwebs. Official and non official forums for Xbox and the such. Unfortunately not Namco's though, there's is still down...


Anywho... /throws in 2 cents. There ya go.

I think its a lack of information regarding the forums and general lazyness of people to date. I'm an Xbox player though I have a ps3. I prefer my Xbox for shooters or "twin stick" games because I hate thumb bumping that happens to me in the ds3.

As for the topic there's no real way to get the word out on Xbox unless you talk to mercs and others and throw up the acl link in your profile etc.

I got directed here by a member who hired me as a merc. And I super greatful otherwise I would still be pissed that I didn't have a good forum to go to since ACU is essentially dead and aco.... god never again.
So old I've been described as Antiquity.

Whoa, what? That's not true; people there just don't like new AC games. Or maybe just AC in general, lol. The chat is active.

If you want dead, go to acgarage.

ACU isn't inactive, we have as much daily posts as ACL does if not more-- just not about ACVD. We also have a thriving chat.

Uhm, yeah. Thank you Cheng~


Anyways, I do believe I owe an answer right?

What I think is this; Xbox players are tired of rivalries, both among themselves and with people they will (probably) never play against on the other system. It's also apparent by the stigma between the two consoles. It isn't that PSN players innately dislike XBL players, and neither is it vice-versa. Although, of course there are exceptions.

Take it like this, we take two roughly identical players and thrust one into PS3 ACV and thrust the other into Xbox ACV. They're going to have totally different experiences. Now, we're going to grab them both out of their respective servers and plop them into a little forum, where they technically share equal ground. Let's say that one of them posts a thread about how he is perplexed by how nobody runs a certain weapon or part which he thinks is really good. Now let us say that the other player from the other console reads that thread and is utterly aghast by how someone would dare to say that such an OP and overused weapon is underused, at least on his respective console. Well... you know what happens from there. The one who started the thread is criticized, because clearly he's stating something totally absurd from the perspective of the guy from the other console. Then they start bickering back and forth about how people from one console are dumb because they don't play this meta or that meta, and so on and so forth, and how the other console's population is terrible because they have to rely on this meta or that meta.

Anyways, this should be pretty familiar. So in summary, we don't see many Xbox players because the ones that you'd probably see are the ones who are not going to sit idly by and get hammered with criticism. The ones that you do see are the quiet ones, or the ones that are understanding and can take some criticism from their colleagues across the console divide.

Happy with my answer? [ y / n ]

Also, we're both hypocritical if you criticize me~ ^-^

I'd like to pick this apart. Something still seems a little off about the theory. But I can't put my finger on it.

On the other hand, aren't you just saying PS3 players are more resilient, since more of us haven't left yet? :3

rivalries

If there's one thing about AC that puts me off, it's this.

You could interpret it like that. However, what I think about that is simple; you're the majority. You can bounce off of each other indefinitely to wear down the patience of an Xbox forum-er. There's not many Xbox players around who can back each other up in such an environment.

I could name a few who are great at doing this~ (but I won't ^-^ )
