In Holland the PS3 version of Burnout has the number 1 position. Second is Mario & Sonic and on 3rd place the X360 version of burnout Paradise.
But it doesnt come as a surprise since the europeans love racing games
@ zambrota The UK has Chart Track, which is the UK version of NPD basically http://www.charttrack.co.uk... Edit - Clicked wrong Replay, this should be on post 2 replys
So again here we go with the small areas and their sales. Holland has a population of 6 million. The Bay Area here in California has a population of 8 million. Seriously what's next? The gamestop in the corner of East 12 Ave. beats out the 360 in Burnout sales!!!!
and also in most of the gaming charts of european regions.
europeans like racing games.
Europeans now have more purchasing power than the Japanese and the Americans and ps2 sold most in europe(50 million)
I wont be surprised if any console reaches 100m solely in europe this gen
Crysis reached 1m thx to europe. It sold <100k in NA.
all european regions count this gen
FirstknighT, the fact of the matter is that PS3 titles perform better in Europe, because as you probably know already the PS3 sells better in Europe than the US,(except in the UK) think of Europe as another country (sorry my European friends, its just to get this guy's head straight), there you see, not everything is in the US. It reminds me of my friend who thinks the US is the only market to sell. seriously. dont think like this, anyone please.
There is no substantial evidence that suggests that x360 outsells ps3 in terms of HW sales in UK other than Vgchartz(lol)
However you clearly saw how their australian ps3 and x360 sales turned out to be?
GFK hasnt released any ps3/x360 numbers for UK. Last time they commented that ps3 and x360 sales were neck and neck in UK. We dont know the scenario after ps3's price cut over there. However in terms of SW sales x360 has the edge in UK since it has more consoles out there. as for other regions of europe we all know the scenario and we can all see the charts of various EU regions
so no need for flamebait/fight
lol first night its a country just cause its not as big as the states doesnt mean its not news worthy.... Besides this is just the tip of the iceberg. You want to bet on if the ps3 version sells more worldwide than the 360? How about if it does you stop posting negative crap on the ps3 news for a year and if the 360 version sells more Ill stop posting on the 360 side.
That is less then the population of California? What's next we are going to ignore Australia?
It is the purchasing power.
Even when Europe wasnt performing that well PS2 went on to sell the most there in its lifetime .
In this gen Europe's purchasing power > US +JAPAn
there is no doubt about that. Plus a lot of european gamers are finding interest in console gaming. Not only you have more people who would be buying consoles but also newly CONVERTED to-be console owners there.
EUROPE/PAL is the most significant area this gen . Europe will decide the winner of this gen .
a single console with just ONE SIDED PERFORMANCE in EUROPE can also win this gen. Europeans and middle easterns have heavy brand preferences too
zambrota, i dont think so, but lets just end it at that and see the GFK numbers,im pretty convinced that Vgchartz has got this right, dispite the crazy sales numbers. just look at the games that are comming on PS3 in europe soon, thats going to help boost hardware sales.
As found in Wikipedia, Holland (more popular name for The Netherlands) is only 2 parts of The Netherlands (6,06 million) but the country itself has 16,402,835 people living in it. Not that much difference with Australia... And btw, it's the home of Guerilla Games. D. from Flanders - still part of Belgium
You know its loud mouth Americans that only care about America, that give Americans a bad name. I can remember you and your crew saying Japanese sales didnt matter and European sale didn't matter, but guess what? With XB only slightly in front in the good ol' USA and getting canned everywhere else, Japanese and Europeans sale do make the difference. Have fun watching you precious one year lead get reeled in just like it already has in most of Europe.
FirstKnight must be an American lol.
Dude, do your research. There are 16.4 million people living in Holland (stats are from november 2007).
firstknight dont mind them they only post what soothes them ,we all know the fact that why frontlines fuels of war has become exclusive and alone in the dark 5
FirstknighT, you sir are a typical closed minded American, who thinks America is the world. Well guess what? Its far from it. Holland is not a big country like the US, but its still a country no less. If you add up all the people who live in European countries together, they amount to way more than America. Damn, even if you just add Britain, Germany and France together, there are more people living in these than America.
So when I see people like you saying that the US is the largest market, you are totally wrong, Europe is.
Moderators, please delete this
ur wrong the netherlands have population of 16mil http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
I don't care which version is on top, I only want to see Burnout sell and become number one everywhere because it deserves to.
Good find and news.
Agree. Love Burnout. So much fun, and it has been really addicting.
i hear the germans love that game?
you've seen the angry german kid hahahahah thats mint
PS3 RULES IN EUROPE!!!!1
what are the dutch thinking...? putting a ps3 title on top...
and its on a ps3.ps3 is the worlds console and always has been.PLAY B3YOND!
Burnout is a multiplatform game, but the only things you see on TV is the PS3 commercial and not the 360.
Sony paid for those ads, the same way Microsoft paid for Madden 08 and Rock Band ads.
Burnout is a nice game. I'll probably buy it in my next paycheck.
Burnout is a lot more fun then the demo let on and this may go from being current rental to a buy for me. Good to see it sell well too. Still miss the crash mode though, not a fun of Showtime.
