ehh this doesnt really make sense..if theres more people playing a game, that just means there would be more noobs to kill...thats the way i look at it..so if your saying theres more people on the 360 (which is true) then that would mean there would be more new players to dominate
But, more players to compete against, makes you better.
Ill give an example of games BEFORE they went online.
I was a HUGE halo 1 player. At first, it was just me and my best buddy. We played each other all the time, and eleveted each others games.
Later, we got together with more people, and had a solid group of about 6 players. By increasing the ammount of players we played against, and thus, the ammount of playstyles we played against, we got better, and so did everyone else.
Our group even got bigger. Swelling to about 15-20 people who always wanted in.
New players would come into the group, who had been playing for over a year, but would get smashed on by our friends who picked it up a few weeks prior.
The crash course that players would get when they played against the vast diffrent styles of our group, got them ready, so when someone came into our group, who had been beating up his little brother for a year in split screen, it was a whole diffrent game.
We were always challenging each other, wanting to get a step up, not only on the guy who was closest to us in skill, but, also the rest of the bunch who were coming up fast.
More people = more compitition = better results
If you are in the top 1% of something, and there is 100 people, you are the best
If you are in the top 1% of something, and there is 1000 people, there are 10 people at your level
If you are in the top 1% of something, and there is 10000 people, there are 100 people at your level
And so on.
Also, take madden for example...
Back before it was online, you could only play against a handful of friends, and if you were the best, that was it, game over, they refuse to play you.
But, once you got online, there was litterly thousands of people who were as good as you, and gave you challenges that you never faced before, you had to adapt.
You picked up things that your enemy did, and put it into what you did.
I think that is as clear as i can explain it...
