12 Biggest First Week Launches In Gaming History ( 3 Million + Sales)

"Of course, you should note that this list doesn’t include games that were bundled with consoles (such as Wii Sports and the like) and is only talking about the games’ first weeks on sale. We re-iterate, this article is not representing the all-time sales of any of the games mentioned." (PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

The only game I own on that list is GTA4... I'm quite proud of that. I would like to play Halo 4, isn't that meant to be coming to PC?

I hope. I got it launch day and would gladly buy it again for my pc

This was easy as we knew the top 3 to 5 games would be Call of duty and that the only exlusives would be Halo and Gears.

It's quite interesting that the entire list outside Halo started off as PC exclusive.

Assassin's Creed and Gears of War started out as pc exclusives?

I own a majority of games on that list. I'm quite poud of that too :-)
I love owning games I like.

(aside from black ops 2 and modern warfare 3... I regret those purchases so much. No more CoD for me EVER)

I own Halo 4 and Battlefield 3, and I regret both.
Halo 4 = Not my liking, boring
Battlefield 3 = not made for consoles
I will buy Gears Of War 3, hopefully it is not as boring.

sickens me that cod owns the top 4. these zombie consumers will purchase anything with call of duty slapped on to the cover.

I own Gears of War 3, Halo 4, Halo 3, GTA4 and Diablo III.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   520d ago
I have Gears, Halo3,4, sold MW2, and am kinda disappointed I paid full price for ACIII.
Steelmanner  +   520d ago
I find it a bit ridiculous that the Call of Duty games get so much sales when they release pretty much the same game over and over. Feel free to disagree, but coming from someone who has played most of them, they really don't differ much.
