It is official that Call Of Duty 4 has become the third PLAYSTATION 3 game title to pass 2 million in sales, accelerating passed Assassins Creed in not-to-distant fourth place with just under 2 million in sales.
Well deserved,COD4 is my second favorite game on my PS3,Uncharted is my all time favorite game on any console
COD4 online is simply the best there is,no other game comes close to COD4's multiplayer,and the single player campaing is SUPERB as well
And it's good to see all the other guys on the site who own shares in MS and Sony fight it out and completely ignore the point as always.
Some PS3 haters out there were claiming that the PS3 has yet to have one game pass 1mil in sales, and here we have a report showing 3 games have passed the 2mil mark...interesting I think.
The games are very worthy of the sales, but still supprised that R&C has not done better and yet to hit the million mark.
But 7 games past the 1mil mark, thats cool for a system with no games. :)
You have to remember that Xbots like to use NPD data only to argue their claims. Of course, the NPD shows North American numbers only and ignors the rest of the world. Shame on them. Maybe somebody needs to let them know that there are other countries that like to play games?
You mean, PS3 users in other countries who actually BUY games, instead of spending most of their time on N4G.com whining and complaining like the North American PS3 user base?
Easy question. Easy answer.
I'm at school right now. Therefore, I have some free time to comment. Now you get to join my growing list of users I have on ignore! Nice knowing you! =D
EDIT: LOL! Good job on the edit, you fool. I caught you.
"har har har bloody sinner...you are totally right...I never see a single 360 fanboy on this site...ever...they all have better things to do like buy games...er, wait...
one thing is fairly common...I see more 360 fanboys pissing into the wind then any other demographic around...don't you know that 95% of your arguments towards "PS fanboys" come back and push your face through the back of your head?...
so I will make it obvious...if NA PS3 owners "have nothing better to do than be on N4G"...and 360 owners "are buying and playing games"...then why the feck are you on here posting?..."
Are you for real?
"one thing is fairly common...I see more 360 fanboys pissing into the wind then any other demographic around..."
I thought you were one of the more level-headed people here but I guess I was wrong. This place is 4:1 PS3 fanboys and if you can't see that then you have your face not pushed to the back of your head but firmly shoved up your arse.
This news post is a great example. It's made up news! Someone goes to the completely unreliable VGAChartz and then looks at the numbers and then suddenly makes it news. How many 360 news posts are "XXXX game has become the XX game to pass 2mil in sales". It's like trying to make up for some inadequacy(ie little d!ck syndrome).
There is usually one PS3 rumor debunk every day here, because PS3 fanboys work themselves up and start their FUD and then end up burning themselves. If that isn't pissing in the wind then I don't know what is.
It happens on both sides, but to say it's more 360 fanboys is misinformation.
What's really sad is Need For Speed Pro Street is so far ahead of Ratchet & Clank Future. R&CF is one of the best games of 2007 yet it's only around 750,000 so far. Shameful. Gamers need to get with it and stop this silly nonsense. Too many people act like a platformer is for kids. R&C isn't. They're great games. Maybe these people who think that should rent it and try it out.
That's almost HALF as many as the 360 version....very newsworthy! :p
Then why would you even care?
I liked the game, though I still have trouble playing FPS on a console.
well seeing theres half as many PS3's around wouldnt that make them about equal (game sales Vs install base)?
so i dont really see your point?
it`s the TRUTH.
However, the 360 has tons of games to split the purchasing dollar.
Cod4 on 360 was up against, bioshock and halo 3.
On ps3 this game was against......
Don't include R&C and Uncharted as they all floped.
This is getting ridiculous and lame. I cant believe people argue that this system has more 2 million games than the other. what the hell. is good childish entertainment.
"Kevin Cox is a d'bag...I saw him go into a bathroom last night with a DUDE!!.."
ahah I seriously read that on a stall door last night at a bar near my house...word for word...I am fairly certain it has nothing to do with this guy above...but judging by that horribly inaccurate comment, it very well may be true...

PS3 also had UT3 and the Orange Box (which did bad). Don't say Uncharted was a flop as it's sold over a million in a couple months. Unlike most of the FUD you spread, the PS3's user base does buy games and not just BD movies.
you idiot, you dont think that an extra YEAR would allow the the 360 to have higher sales numbers?
Great news! I only wish that Sony exclusive titles sold as well. Like Uncharted! It just hit a million though. I was suprised that it has only sold a million to date. People go out and buy games, it makes developers want to develop games for your system(s).
Oh before someone says it, 2 million is impressive. It is true it is has sold double the amount on the 360 and that is truly astonishing, but it should not take anything away from the the 2 million for the PS3. Remember, number wise it should sale more on the 360 due to the larger install base. So no one should be bashing the PS3 for this, becuase if you compare the ratio install base number to units sold the ratio would be about the same. What is interesting is that this is the first time Sony has been in this predicament in not having the larger install base.
uh...in all honesty...its probably better for PS3 owners that 3rd party games are selling great...those are the publishers and developers that have the choice of not making games for the PS3...
1st party stuff is important for Sony's wallet...1st party games will come out year after year regardless...but if you want big exclusive franchises like MGS and FF to stay playstation exclusive...you damn well better talk with your money...
cod 4 360 has sold 4 million:)
360 has a double-size install base. it is obvious that 360 is going to sell more with more systems sold, but this is a huge deal for the PS3. It is the 3rd game to reach this achievement AND is the first non-bundled game to reach this achievement. It has the same attachment rate as the 360!
just curious...but how many games had reached 2 million by January 07 for the 360? (and that was with a full 14 months of world wide availability...PS3 wasn't even world wide until March of 07)...
what was it?...Gears, and CoD 2 for sure...but did Vegas, GRAW, or Dead Rising make that also?...just wondering...in either case I don't think of having almost 4 games over 2 million sold, with less than a full year of world wide availability, as bad...
I am hoping that the PS3 owners, like myself, can see this news as extremely positive and a great sign of things to come. It is an amazing achievement!
Heres a lesson for all game Devs, make a great game and make it work on both systems and it will sell on both systems.
Good news on the sales. I personally prefer Battlefield modern combat online and Ghost Recon2 for offline. COD4 had terrible A.I and spawning enemies which ruined it somewhat on Veteran. Looked nice though.
Since when was Resistance a pack-in title?
I know Motorstorm is, but it sold 1 million+ before it was packed in.
w/ the 80gb.
actually europe got the motorstorm+resistance bundle, i know cos i bought one. i wouldnt have bought resistance otherwise, but im glad i got it since it was much better than i expected.
and 360 Fanboys say PS3 owners don't buy games.
PS3 exclusive games like Uncharted, Resistance, and Motor Storm all sold 1 million copies or more!! Ratchet and Clan will be next follow by Ninja Gaiden Sigma
Multiplatform games on the PS3 that sold 1 millions is Assassin Creed, and Call of Duty 4..
And xbots said we dont buy games..lol...We just dont buy crappy ports
I expect UT3 will shoot up near if not pass the 1 million mark a few weeks after it comes out in Europe.
actually, the chart shows Ninja Gaiden Sigma selling a paltry 330K. sad...it's such a solid, polished game.
I just wonder how the PS3 has accomplished this w/o any games, but now three? :P
Is this suppose to be good news?
cool, i hope R&C can hit a million although i doubt it
software sales for the ps3 are on the up- M$ am scared
Ratchet and Clank are really close to selling a million copies. I'm pretty sure in March Ratchet will sell a million. Come on people, support Insomiac.
...on both the PS3 and xbox360 and I can def. say the PS3 version is way better. The graphics appear to be clearer on the PS3 and when it accesses the disc for the xbox its REALLY noisy.
So did COD4 combined with PS3+360+PC outsold Halo3?
Just wondering. If i remember Halo 3 was around 7 million and COD 4 might be close to that by now(if combined all 3 platforms). Also since COD4 is on both consoles i think it will have longer legs and might even out sell Halo 3 in long run. Not that it matters that much but COD4 is awesome games and it would nice if someone can beat Halo franchise.
im guilty of it myself
We have a winner folks!
not really.... unless your a little kid or one lonely mofo with no social life. i could care less about the gamer score and the people i had on my friends list were the same. besides every time there is a story of someone with a high gamer score people always call said person a loser this, get a life that .....so what is the point of the gamer score? hell i liked getting the achivements but what is the point of the gamerscore?
good for you, but for the majority of 360 owners, we are proud of our gamer score. don't be an idiot and claim it means nothing because there are many 360 owners which constatly use the achievement system as a mark against the PS3.
Secondly, to claim anyone who likes the GS is a little kid or has no life, I have a room full of 360 owners here that are 20, 30, and 40 year olds that dissagree greatly with your over generalized under thought comment!
what happens when home comes out? ps3 will have trophys for in game achievements and 360 will still have points . honestly id rather have something sweet to look at instead of a number no ofence everyone.
A lot of my friends that have a PS3
already own this game.
are FPS games...wow something is wrong.
resistance\motorstorm also sold because there was nothing to play.
seems like the hardcore games are being bought. uncharted and r$c could not even help, which are geared towards casuals.
lets see ut3 flopped and i guess kz2, another shooter is suppose to sell over a million plus. maybe haze, yep another shooter.
to this day. A lot of PS3 games are turning out to be consistent sellers rather than Day 1 sellers. Just look at Ratchet and Heavenly Sword: small launches, but both are past the 700K mark. Even Uncharted broke the 1 Million units sold mark, despite not making the top 10 NPD...ever.
That is just not true. There is plenty to sell, but admittedly it sold pretty damn well because they were bundled. This just shows that quality games sell really well on the PS3 and is a sign of what is to come with future AAA titles such as MGS4, Killzone 2, FFXIII, DMC4, Resistance 2, etc.
Uncharted is aimed at casuals my arse. You've obviously never played it to the end or on the hardest level.
And Resistance and Motorstorm sold because they're great. Nothing else to play? Ok that helps, thats a fair comment. Just so you realise the same can be said of Halo on XB1 and Gears on XB360.
It's a very good title, so Kudos for IW.
the company that has a working system has two consoles and one that is a handheld so in actuality Sony has more money when you combined software & hardware.
but "Ratchet" deserves it more. imo...
cool avatar, KDash.
PS3 games don't sell. Right? Right??? =P
because it has FREE online multiplayer! You can't argue with that.
achievements, rumble and a controller that actually works great for FPS over PSN anyday.
What are you going to say when DS3 is bundled in the states and Home is released? Well, my controller is better, so it's worth a $50/yr premium (at least $200 over the lifetime of the console)?
Those arguments are lame. Rumble... Achievements... seriously who cares about that. Do you honestly think anyone is going to a store, deciding which console to get and is like 'RUMBLE!!! I need to have RUMBLE!!'. You have to be 15.
InYourMom, I know there are a lot of people who love rumble but for me its not a selling point honestly. I just don't like it that much but I also don't put my phone on vibrate in my pocket like some people either <shrug>.
As to the controllers, YOUR opinion is that the X360 controller is better, my opinion is that PS3's is better. You again feel that YOUR opinion is fact and the only reality, but again you are wrong. I don't think my opinion is better than yours but its as valid.
the 360 controller is actually sluggish compared to the sixaxis.
Honestly, why are people hating on other systems? If the ps3 does good xbots hate teh ps3, if xbox does good ps3 fans hate the xbox. Give it up already. Those who say that the graphics and online for this game are better for one system than another, if youre so obsessed that your system, whatever it may be, is the best and the competition is crap, you obviously are too obsessed and in love with your own system than to even try the competitors system therefore you have no experience with the competitors system, thus your arguement and claim is void. BOth systems are great for this game, the game itself if a hit and Im happy to see that the game is getting as much credit it deserves
NPD numbers are BS, they onlypay attention to north american numbers, halo 3may have dominated the 360 fanboys in north america, but its sales numbers in japan and europe are laughable, Pro Evolution Soccer never released in america but it had AWESOME sales numbers in europe, australia and even japan
This is just the beginning.
MGS4- Gonna sale 20 million easy.
Killzone 2- Gonna sale like 20 million
FFXIII- 20 million
Resistance 2- Gotta be 20 million
LOOK AT USER CMD5150 COMMENT, he actually has a disagreement,,
who the hell would disagree with free Online???
I thought it was a good point too. Free is good, right? Plus, it's still up and running fine (unlike some other online services).
Glad to see a 3rd party game doing so great on PS3. COD4 and AC both deserve great sales and hopefully publishers will see that PS3 owners DO buy 3rd party games.
we buy GOOD third party games, xbots just buy whatever crap gets a 360 logo slapped on it.
2. Lack of taste
Achievments do drive my buddies to play some pretty cruddy games I notice.
