80. Playstation All-Stars Battle Royal 5 weeks
81. Forza Motorsport 3 165 weeks
I'm at a loss for words here, I thought PASBR would get way more support than this, especially considering that there weren't many other exclusive games for ps3 these holidays.
I know it is only US but when a 60 month old Uncharted 3 charts at 43, 37 spots higher than PASBR, that excuse flies out the window.
According to vgchartz, Xbox 360 software sales are less than 1 million behind those of the Wii. That's incredible considering the Wii has a 2 million lead on the Xbox 360 in the US.

Forza Horizon is the most bundled Xbox 360 exclusive LOL. People aren't buying the game, people are buying the Xbox 360 bundles that include the game and then Microsoft counts this as a sale of Forza Horizon. Come on bro you should know this.
ALLWRONG  +   1138d ago
^^^ This is called denial
NiceGuy360  +   1138d ago
Except that's Forza 3. . .as in 2009's racing game of the year and the highest rated racing game of the generation, not Forza Horizon. I doubt Microsoft is still bundling those.
Come on bro, you should know. . .how to READ.
GribbleGrunger  +   1138d ago
Yes, but people buy those bundles 'because' they have Forza ... it cuts both ways. Forza is doing well, so how about we just acknowledge that? It's only the same as the Uncharted bundles or the Infamous bundles. I'm Sony all the way but be fair.
ipe  +   1138d ago
forza 3 is most bundled game ever, not horizon.
ABizzel1  +   1137d ago
Come on people let's be real. Forza 3 has been bundled with the 360 every year since it's release which is why it's at nearly 6 million copies sold.

Look at Forza 1 1 million, Forza 2 4 million (again bundled), Forza 4 sales 1.5 million, and look at Horizon (great game by the way) not even 1 million yet.

You don't have inconsistent sales of that magnitude in games, and the reason why there's such a difference is because of Forza 2 & 3 being bundled.

Besides what does PSASBR sales have to do with anything. The game has sold well and the fact that it's in the top 10 PSN games since it's release goes to show it sold fairly well. And as with Forza it will be bundled with the PS3 to boost sales.

lol this is vgchartes
they don't have any source for their numbers...those are just guess numbers from them
and always their numbers are wrong
why ps3/xbox360/wii fanboys here on N4G follow them is beyond me -__-
{N4G is the only site that follow them)

So you reckon PASBR is alot higher? Because I've yet to see it in any top 20 charts since it's second week out. Even if VGCHARTZ were off, a 5 week old exclusive game being outsold this badly by a 2011 game (UC 3) is pretty disappointing no matter how you spin it. No?
Muerte2494  +   1138d ago
You never, ever quote these numbers. because VGchartz admitted that these are just estimates. There numbers are way off base until it comes time for the official number to come out. Then that when they adjust their numbers to make it seems as if they're estimates were accurate the entire time. When European analyst firms can't even track EU/PAL territories, I doubt some two-bit, ex-neogaffer hosted site can.

be kind and show me one comment where i said any thing about PASBR ??!!
i don't even own it
i'm talking about vgchartes ...not this game

******"Even if VGCHARTZ were off, a 5 week old exclusive game being outsold this badly by a 2011 game (UC 3) is pretty disappointing no matter how you spin it. No? "******

it's not "even if"
vgchartes numbers are always off
look for my comment history
even when they show ps3 numbers are higher
i still bash them and call them wrong
i only trust the numbers from Sony and MS
and you would be out of your mind if you even trust vgchartes
so tell me how do you use the top 20 chart when this chart numbers are not even real ??!!!
vgchartes numbers are not real what your source ??!!!
i'm getting disagrees for stating the truth and something every one knows outside of this site
"vgchartes numbers are not real"

UC3 is being bundled with the new PS3 slim 250GB models here in the US. It's also bundled with the UC dual pack along with infamous in a separate SKU, although the dual pack may be counted differently. Could be that a lot of people picked those up and that accounts for the higher sales of the game. Those bundled games get added into sales.

So..."even if" if it's VGChartz and their numbers are accurate...which they aren't...there is a reason it's being outsold. I didn't even have to spin it..that's just the way it is, and always has been.

All Stars is that low because the game just sucks. It averaged 7's and it's selling terrible. Get over it already.

At least we can agree that not every sony exclusive is OMG TEH BEST GAME EVAR!@

torchic  +   1138d ago
agree somewhat. not sure what Sony were thinking when they came up with this, from the moment it was announced I saw low sales written all over it. I don't think it sucked but was more "meh"

instead of funding this game they could've just put all that money into potentially buying back the rights for Crash Bandicoot / Spyro because that's what we want.

we never asked for this.

sucks? says who? guys who haven't even touch the game!

it's a pretty good game and it's very well executed! the online works since day 1 and no lag even playing between PS3 and Vita! and the fact that it comes with the Vita version for FREE is a huge bonus and me and my brother are having a blast playing team online while he is on PS3 and me on Vita!

it may not be selling too well as it's a niche type of game and fighting games aren't as big as they used to be anymore! aside from big name like SF, Tekken and very few others, no fighting games has done too well this gen! that's just fact but it doesn't derive anything from the game as personally, I think it's awesome!
ritsuka666  +   1137d ago
Played this game for a couple hours, besides noticing the terrible net code... I realized this game just doesn't have the fun factor that brawl did. It's a shameless rip off that doesn't have that super close hardcore gamer attention to detail that the smash bros series had.
Blastoise  +   1137d ago
I notice you and Ritsuka666 seem to always hate on Playstation all-stars.
It got a lot more good scores than low score's you know? In fact, it didnt get any negative reviews except for that Tom Chick guy who hates on everything.

So no. All-stars doesn't suck. In fact, it's a pretty good game. Stop making out like it's selling badly because its so bad when there are tons of great games that don't sell well.

All it takes is a quick look at your comment history to realise you're just another troll.

And I'm 99% sure you have never played it.

Lol 60 month old Uncharted 3? I didn't know Naughty Dog went backwards, and released Uncharted: Drakes Fortune last year November, and not 2007! :D
sdozzo  +   1138d ago
It's not a very likable game. People might hate but numbers don't deny. No market for it.
Sharingan_no_Kakashi  +   1137d ago
Tis kinda sad. I want to buy it but i've just been broke and even still there's other games that I wanna play more than pasbr. Loved the beta though. I'll pick it up eventually. 300,000 acroos both platforms at retail isn't impressive. digital sales prolly aren't much better.
rainslacker  +   1137d ago
It is on sale at best buy and gamestop this week for 39.99. Gamestop sale may end today though as they change it up on Wednesdays. Pretty good price since you also get the Vita version, and it's a fun game.

most PS3 owners do not buy the amazing exclusives on PlayStation for some reason. I work at a Best Buy as a cashier and the vast majority of PlayStation software I ring up is third party. Mostly it's been Borderlands 2 and Black Ops 2 lately.
I even told a customer that it was odd that most PlayStation owners just buy PS3's for Blu Ray and COD, because I had asked him if he's ever played an Uncharted game. He said no. I asked wether he'd played Resistance, Little Big Planet, inFamous, Heavy Rain, Twisted Metal, Star Hawk, Rachet and Clank, ect, and he said no to all of those. I didn't say anything in any rude manner, and I told him I thought Call of Duty is great too, but it seems odd that Sony puts so much effort in buying development studios and hardly any of them sell as well as third party games do.

That really comes down to marketing I think more than anything else. Sony isn't known to have great marketing, especially for their biggest games. Also a majority of gamers aren't as informed on what titles are out there like most of us would be, so they would obviously go more for what their friends are playing, or what they may see from commercials. It's really a shame, because they do produce some great titles that I'm sure those people would enjoy.

Proof that 3rd party exclusive DLC does work...people are always bashing MS for this but look how much better AC sold to BR a 1st party game.
ALLWRONG  +   1137d ago
When MS gets exclusive DLC all you hear is whining and crying from the PS side. When Sony gets exclusive DLC you hear absolutely nothing from the MS side. You can google it, yahoo it, or bing it and the result is the same every time. In fact tentonsoftube you did a lot of complaining about Skyrim.

Skips  +   1137d ago
@Knight_Crawler and @ALLWRONG

Difference is, Sony ACTUALLY MAKES GAMES, instead of focusing all that money on exclusive DLC.

Wouldn't you guys prefer Killer Instinct 3 over that crappy RE6 DLC, or that mediocre 73 meta rated Skyrim Dawnguard DLC?

assassins creed 3 on PS3 is smashing the 360 version
ItsTrue  +   1138d ago
Just like how Black Ops II on Xbox is decimating the PS3 version.
DoctorNefarious123  +   1138d ago
The word decimate comes from the Latin word decem which means ten. Black ops is not selling ten times as many copies on 360. So your statement is false.

It's the hackers, they're buying them to illgaly play games! That or the DS still has a strong holiday appeal.
MasterCornholio  +   1138d ago
The Wii U plummeted after the holidays. Im not really surprised since its a brand new console so im pretty sure that once Nintendo releases some big franchises on it the sales will start to pick up again or a big price drop like what they did with the 3DS would do the trick as well.

Hardly. Two commercials isn't what I'd call "advertising."

I've seen a commercial for it about six times since launch... whereas I've seen commercials for games like Black Ops and Assassin's Creed dozens of times. Of course, I don't expect PS All Stars to get the same type of marketing push as those games, but it's not getting the sort of spotlight time that you'd expect out of a big seller.

Marketing is something Sony has struggled with all generation; only Uncharted seems to have escaped that fate.

Perhaps you're just being picky over his word choice. If so, then this should satisfy you:

PS All Stars doesn't get advertised the way it SHOULD.

It's a very good game, but there are loads of good games about.

It does deserve more sales.

I hate seeing the "PASBR sucks" comments because I love playing the game, so much negativity with that game and I do not understand it...
Blastoise  +   1137d ago
I know the feeling...I think it's a pretty good game.
I understand the complaints about the campaign and the menu's but I think the gameplay is really fast paced and fun.

But it's their opinion I guess, I do get the feeling a lot of people bashing it have yet to play it though...

This chart is wrong how the hell the PS3 sell less units than the XBOX 360. I hate biased sites with out ANY REAL PROOF of sales
Clarence  +   1137d ago
This bull$hit when you click read story vgchartz has the ps3 selling 257k
When you go to the actual site they have the ps3 at 284k.

They have even changed the numbes for the 360. Vgchartz has no idea what there doing. Always seem confused about what the actual numbes for consoles are.

If you notice the have now lowered both ps3 and 360 numbes. They dropped the 360 numbers down to 505k and the ps3 numbers down to 257k. They have been known for over estimating for the 360 and under estimating for the PS3. I willing to bet that the PS3 is tied with 360 in consoles sold.

PSABR was 20$ cheaper on launch day if you purchased it digitally (PSN Store). I agree the game was somewhat of a flop but I mean I didn't expect it to sell well when there were no Final Fantasy characters or Crash/Spyro. Hopefully they can improve substantially on the second version for the PS4. I have a feeling we haven't seen the last of SuperBot Entertainment. They are wonderful developers who care about their consumers (FREE DLC!!).
