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.

Riderz13371302d ago

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.

ALLWRONG1302d ago

^^^ This is called denial

NiceGuy3601302d 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.

GribbleGrunger1302d 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.

ipe1302d ago

forza 3 is most bundled game ever, not horizon.

ABizzel11301d ago (Edited 1301d 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)

NiceGuy3601302d ago

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?

Muerte24941302d ago (Edited 1302d 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.

Ezz20131302d ago (Edited 1302d ago )

@niceguy360

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 ...so 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"

kickerz1301d ago (Edited 1301d ago )

I keep hearing how bad VGChartz is, so can someone please tell me a better site I can go to and get this type of information??

rainslacker1301d ago

******"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? "******

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!@

torchic1302d ago (Edited 1302d 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.

badz1491302d ago

oh...you 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!

ritsuka6661302d 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.

Blastoise1301d ago (Edited 1301d 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

sdozzo1302d ago

It's not a very likable game. People might hate but numbers don't deny. No market for it.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi1302d 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.

rainslacker1301d 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.

WiiUsauce1301d ago (Edited 1301d ago )

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.

rainslacker1300d ago

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.

looks like the exclusive content for assassins creed 3 worked in sony's favor.

Knight_Crawler1302d ago

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.

ALLWRONG1301d 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.

stage881301d ago

The buttthurt is strong with you.

Skips1301d 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?

SuperSonic2661302d ago

assassins creed 3 on PS3 is smashing the 360 version

ItsTrue1302d ago

Just like how Black Ops II on Xbox is decimating the PS3 version.

DoctorNefarious1231302d ago (Edited 1302d 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.

ItsTrue1301d ago

Hah... The more you know. Then I will take back the word 'decimate' and replace it with 'thrashing'.

YoungPlex1302d ago

Holiday #'s are officially over! Time to see how all the systems do this year. Next weeks sales and the next coming months are going to be interesting. Happy new year everyone!

G-cis1302d ago

how did DS sold that well in NA???
pokemon?price cut?

Qrphe1301d ago

It's the hackers, they're buying them to illgaly play games! That or the DS still has a strong holiday appeal.
