According to vgchartz, Assassin's Creed has now become the fourth title to pass the 2 million milestone for PS3 software sales
although unlike call of duty and uncharted i dont feel this game deserved these sort of sales.
at my local gamestop, assassin's creed was the most traded in game recently lol, IMO, assassin's creed is a game you should rent for a week or 2, beat it, and return it. But this game deffinatly proves that PS3 owners do buy games, the games that i think will soon join the "million" list include burnout paradise, devil may cry 4, ratchet and clank future, guitar hero 3 and for some bizarre reason, need for speed prostreet (i hated this game, but the software numbers are very high, nearly a million)
I agree, I didn't quite like Assassin's Creed. More hype than anything. I truly believed that Ratchet & Clank deserved a better outcome.
it was soooo freaking repetitive and tedious on top of that it froze on me a couple times ON BOTH VERSIONS! This game was an epic fail I could have rated the game it would have been 7/10 better yet a 6/10 for the re tarted guy pushing me in2 the water constantly.
im sure i have already seen this posted, hasnt anyone else or am i mistaken?
Im glad SOny is putting R&C in a bundle because it deserves to see better numbers.
But millions pre-ordered it before they even saw reviews. Ass Creed = Repetitive flop fest.
But to call it a flop fest is a bit too far... Sure it was repetitive but at least it was fun(At least i thought it was) The only thing that bothered me about about it was the end... It just sort of...... stops
Hint use your one of your assasin abilities ... You will get the credits and then you will be placed back in the room so you can replay the missions to get the 100% complete if you want.
well good to hear, but i cant help feel bad, cuz there are better games that havent sold as well
my hopes were deffinatly let down, but these high sales numbers pretty much guatantee a sequel (i just wish ubisoft would give us more info on the nex-gen prince of persia)
I liked AC. It had its issues, but it was the first. I'm looking forward to seeing what else the franchise can offer . . . and maybe the lessons learned here will impact Prince of Persia.
With Assassin's Creed becoming yet another million seller. Developers are paying close attention to PLAYSTATION® 3 being the primary console to ensure their games reach the peak of it's quality. With that said, Dark Sniper can assure you that Ninja Gaiden, Bioshock and Gears of War 2 will all see releases on PLAYSTATION® 3 due to another solid multi-million dollar income plus superior hardware functionality. $niper
Let me get this straight after a year only 2 other games that are not exclusive to the PS3 are million sellers? COD4 and Assasins Creed. WHy would developers move over to the PS3 as a lead or become the main focus when the 360 had million sellers left and right since launch. Developers are making money on the 360 than they are on the PS3. 2 developers that are multiplatform did it but the exclusives didn't? Rachet and Clank bombed(oh wait rumors to bundle with the system so it will sell like motorstorm did)
It was worthy of selling millions, not exactly what I was thinking it would be yet still broke molds in the genre and gave itself a distinct style of gameplay. Sequals could improve on its faults.
360 fanboy - but but but but i thought ps3 games dont sell ME - there are other place outside of AMERI- 360 fanboy(cuts me off) SHUT UP, DO NOT SPEAK OF ANYTHING OUTSIDE OF AMERICA BECAUSE THIER NOT IMPORTANT. me- even though the ps2 sold 40 million in japan and around the same in europe so how is the 360 gonna get that same success without it? 360 FANBOY- shut up! shut up! they will get it! they will get it! i know devs will continue to cancel games for the ps3. me- well considering ps3 games are selling this well and HOME hasnt even been released yet, i do think the ps3 games will sell substantially better because of peoples obsessions with achievements and not to mention ports are starting to look just as good or even better on the ps3. 360 fanboy- nooooooooo! your wrong. (goes off topic and losing thier mind) well hahahah at least we have CHOICE! me- well CHOICE is the same reason, you guys cant play burnout online without a hardrive. 360 fanboy - .............................. ......... PS3 FANBOY - "sigh" i guess you guys are running out of excuses.lol
Please do not forget to mention the world renowned "attach rate" that has XBox slaves running rampant worldwide. XBOX 360 will be a dead system in 2009 but at least XBots can say that they held a high attach rate for a short period of time. $niper
What a shame... What a terrible game to garner that attention. Resistance, Cod 4... Motorstorm to a degree and Uncharted Deserve the praise. This game, sadly, does not. I cannot wait for R&CFTOD to drag its ass across the finish line, though. That game is truly amazing. Warhawk is too. 2 incredible games that deserve a wealth more than they got. That's for sure.
actaully, ratchet and clank will break a million in most likely 4-5 weeks
Only reason R&C wasn't a preorder for me was because I still have two of the PS2 ones at home that I haven't played. I only have so much money to spend.
HYPE sells games not the quality of it. thats really a bummer because some of these low key games that are great just dont get the same hype and they end up not selling well.
I only picked up a PS3 a few weeks back and have only just started to play Motorstorm. I simply cannot believe the visuals for a 1st gen game on the PS3. It may be weak in some areas but playing this on an HD screen is insane! What grabbed me first was the fact that there are so many detailed cars and textures on the screen yet there is no slow down. Makes me wonder why DIRT was so below par?!?
I think ps3 can get away with assasins creed
mario and sonic at the olympic games lol
should it be posted every game which pass 1 or 2 mln. here? i mean, ps3 by the end of 2008 will have over 30 games which will pass 1 or 2 mln. 1-2 mln. is a good numbers, but atleast 3-5 are really GREAT.
I never seen this game passing 2 million on the PS3 or 360. Game was pretty bad compared to Uncharted IMO.
I enjoyed playing it all the same . The parts it get right are brilliant but Uncharted is the One . Since I am now in the Gamer Zone I mustn't say it is the BEST........So I won't ( I will just think it quietly to myself ) Hype Sells......................... ........... so does Beauty ...... ( Jade R. ) I hope they sent Her on a massive holiday, She alone is responsible for a big chunk of the publicity .
This game doesn't deserve the hype nor the sells.
What are the other 3 games to make 2 million? CoD4, Motorstorm (i think), and what else?
the only reason why motorstorm broke 2 million was because it was a box in game, resistance, cod4 and assassin's creed both earned their spots
oh yea, how could i forget Resistance! But anyway, I would like to see Uncharted and Ratchet and Clank reach over 2 mil. Those are my 2 favorite ps3 games so far.
I liked the game... repetitive and all but I liked it. Think it was worth my money and had a lot of fun. I just cant understand is why does he have to die when he falls on the water.. I mean.. he jumps around like a friggin ninja assassin(obvious) but he cant swim?! Come on... make the bastard swim if there is a sequel.
I've heard so many mixed views of it I know it's not worth buying but I would like to rent it. Does seem like the hype has payed off for Ubi.
See that, PS3 people do buy games. Uncharted is way over a million now and AC over 2 mil. R&C hopefully breaks a million soon because it deserves it. I thought it was just a kid's game at first but after playing it through twice I really like it. Heavenly Sword deserves a million too. It's good that developers are seeing that PS3 people do buy games although I was never really worried about them pulling away from PS3 development anyway.
note to PS3 owners: STOP BUYING ASSASSIN'S CREED AND BUY UNCHARTED AND RATCHET AND CLANK FUTURE PLEASE! it really grinds my gears when worthy games get overlooked for mediocre games. i really like Assassin's Creed, but Uncharted and Ratchet and Clank Future outshine it in *EVERY WAY.
If I could do it over again, this ol boy would not of bought the AC game. Of all the games I purchased for my PS3, This is the only game that I can not stand, nor do I want to finish. Its just awful. with that said, it is still good for PS3, to get these high sells, will help with devs.....
Not that it matters in the big scheme of things, but I only know one person who owns it, and nobody who talks about it. I expected this to be more of a niche title myself, like B:G&E or Indigo Prophecy, but apparently not. Ubisoft did a good job, it's certain to get a sequel now.
This game is good I played it and I liked it good for AC. But other games should hit the 1-2 mil mark like Ratchet for example.
I mean when I first saw trailers for this game, it was almost a system seller for me, the trailers were simply amazing , "hype" games are too expensive for this type of crap. they got the graphics right the animation right ( for the most part) and they got the general flow of the game right but , ahem BIG BUT ,the gameplay was so freaking repetitive , i only played for a couple days after I got it.Then only cut the game on when i wanted to do some fun building jumping and random killing , until I finally sold my copy of the Limited edition to some sucker on craigslist for $55 , i hope he reads this too cuz it would make me tingle inside knowing that he got suckerd for this game like I did
i bought ASSCREED for the PS3..... thank god too. with my 350 dying on me i can atleast finish this game.
congratulations sony and ubisoft.
Great news for both PS3 and AC. Assassins was a great game that sadly some people didn't get and attacked. Definitly a fave of mine and also more proof that 3rd party game can do well enough on PS3 :)
Guess PS3 owners do buy games huh..
I wonder how many MULTI million sllers will be on the PS3 just by the end of the PS3's second year(this year)...MGS4,GTA 4, Maybe DMC 4, Killzone 2, Resistance 2, Little Big Planet.... and there are so many more games we don't even know about like Socom:Confrontation and Infamous that are going to be SWEET. I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FALLOUT 3 ALSO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love this game.
Great News for Ubisoft, Now they might even get around to the matter at hand - FIXING THE DAMN GAME!
