In a three week poll conducted over at Blend Games (in conjunction with Electronic Theatre) gamers were given various descriptors for both Bungie’s Halo 3: ODST and Zipper Interactive’s M.A.G. There were various categories to vote on and according to the logs over the course of the aforementioned three weeks, just over three-to-one gamers preferred M.A.G over Halo 3: ODST.
As reported earlier on Blend Games, the results showed that per every vote cast for Halo 3: ODST nearly three votes were cast for M.A.G. With the exception of the weapon balance and gameplay category, in which case both games were voted for almost evenly.
For each category the polls were open for a week (as they are now closed even if a vote is cast) and at the end of each week the votes were tallied. In comparison there were approximately three times as many votes in the cumulative tally for M.A.G over Halo 3: ODST. This certainly doesn’t mean the latest full-priced expansion of Halo 3 won’t sell well, but if they did release at the same time and Sony promoted M.A.G enough, gamers have easily spoken as to which game they would be willing to buy.
