so even though GowA sold 600k on first week, that's half of GoW3 as GoW3 sold 1.2 million on its first week

that's usually happen with (non-numbered) sequels. GOWA is a brilliant game and it deserves every sale. Same thing to Gears, both are quality games that need our support.

some constructive criticism is needed here, the problem is the uninteresting story.

the developers let themselves down after doing all the really great and hard work on gameplay/set-pieces/graphics, but failing to grab our attention with the set-up and story/script.

SSM should have listened to fans who felt that the story is done after GOW3, instead they self indulge and give us a 3rd prequel.

the story is supposed to be the least expensive part of development, just writers with good imagination and experience with screenplays. Sony need to get hands on with story development in their 1st party games, they own a big worldwide movie studio and it is stupid of them to let programmers or armature writers handle stories in games that cost as much as 40m$ to develop.

Not always true, Halo Reach launched higher than Halo 3, also Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and Revelation launched higher that Assassin's Creed 2.

GoW3 had way better advertising.
I remember seeing the GoW3 trailer in cinemas and it was amazing.

The video used was the intro video where he's scaling the mountain and you see all other gods up top, montaged together with some gameplay at the end.

I haven't completed Ascension yet but nothing has bested that. One of the best game trailers i've ever seen.

I blame the media for unjustly low scores. GOW:A is a great game with one of the best multiplayers ever and a very solid single player.

Woah at those Starcraft 2 retail figures. In before this game becomes one of the best selling games of all time when Blizzard announce digital numbers.
