Epic Games's Gears of War has sold over 5 million copies worldwide for the Xbox 360. Becoming the 3rd game for the console to hit the 5 million mark.
Great achievement for gears as well. But that is enough Vgchartz sales figures for one day
No other 360 game has sold 5 million today, so I think that's enough for now
didn't COD4 just did that and now Gears at the same time. This has to be old.
ahahahahah u sony people are getting slower and slower didnt halo 3 sell 10 million units ?
I can't believe how long this game has been at 59.99 for. Even CoD4 has come down in price at most retail outlets, but this game is still 60 bucks. Damn popular and fun, that's for sure.
I'm one of those 5 million
ok now you've just thrown me a loop-hole...so you own a 360..?
HarryEatsMensAzzholesInTheTub, don't be a n00b. We all know you don't have the greatest shooter ever made. So please.
for a while he has been saying he has one, where have you guys been
Im surprised this got approved ne ways...once again good news for the 360...
You can only get true AAA greatness like GoW on the 360. The PS3 simply can't handle something this next-gen. Only 360 gamers, real gamers, can enjoy such a AAA blockbuster. Something the Sony waitstation is lagging behind with.
AAA games dont mean how much a game sells...Pokemond sold 20mill is it an AAA game..No....so ur logic is flawed...and Metacritic doesn't make a game AAA either .
Normally AAA games has huge production values like "MGS4"...just like movies with huge budgets are called Blockbusters..get it..?
1.- gears of war 2.- halo 3.-........ halo?
4. Orange Box (it sucks on PS3)
5. Mass Effect
6. Forza Motorsport
And the PS3? Only Uncharted exclusive just on 90% average. Nothing else. Mmmhhhhh
"The PS3 simply can't handle something this next-gen." AHAHHHHAHAHHHAH Resistance online 40 Gears on line 8 AAHAHHHAHAHHAH When this game reaches sales like Gran Turismo, give me a call. Oh wait, i'll be dead by then......AAHHHAHAHAHHHAHHAHAH HAHAHAHAHAHA
3. Bioshock 4. Orange Box (it sucks on PS3) 5. Mass Effect 6. Forza Motorsport let's discard the PC games like bioshock ane let's leave the true exclusive like forza.... and forza looks like trash besides GT5
WTf is up with GT5? I can crash into someone..no damage. It ACTUALLY HELPS TO CRASH INTO PEOPLE TO GET AROUND CORNERS! Wow...what a sim! GT was dethroned by Forza, get over it.
lol you think forza is better than GT5 just because it got model damage? forza looks like a PS2 game, really, people wanted to trash their cars in a racing game they actually will go and buy burnout paradise. If someone give me a racing car, I will try to not to crash it or even scratch it, because racing is based in skills, not in bumping cars like a kid. so face it, forza is nothing besides GT5
@Danja huh what are you talking about? Pokemon Red was definitley AAA @Icewake wow, wipe the cum-stain off your eyes and realize that a) full version of GT5 will have damage modelling, b) the GT series is a legacy and it craps all over Forza visually, physically and feature-wise and c) eating play-doh messes with your brain @TheCHILD Orange Box on PS3 has a few more glitches and framerate drops- still a great games, you most certainly can't act like it's a 360 exclusive
Did I list ne specific Pokemon game...3 Pokemon game has sold 20 mill there not all AAA..
but then you guys have the wrong concept of what an AAA game is..so whats the use...
Something that the POS3 will never do, not even with GTA 4.
wow good 360 news well thats been a while
Are we going to make news out of this everytime a game sales over a million(s) copies?
no...that'd just be stupid
I read an article today(on this site) that warhawk sold a half million, ohhh wow thats news to most but this isnt.
that's low for a launch title with a huge fanbase and 2 years old
Hhahaha tell me any game on the Playstation that sold 5 mln. copies with at that time about 10 mln. users that sold this good.
God of War 2, about the best game on the PS2, sold what, 2 mln. with a userbase of about 120 mln.
Last time i check it sold 3 million Ha-ha Sony fanboy don’t bank on MGS cos it will not sell that big ass microwave lookalike...waitstation
How many new ips get a huge fan base and 5mil sales with them still going strong after 2 years from their first game on a brand new console? All you did is point out more reasons its to applaud its success.
MGS3 sold less than 4 million on a console with a user base of 120million. The game has been out since what 04? LMFAO!
both TheTARD at Xboxkings and Icecake said that N4G shouldn't base on vgcharts numbers, but now you both fanboys use it when some numbers favor the trashbox
aawwwww how sad, Gambare is crying now and as an angry kid he's trying to downplay his own stupid comment...
I feel sorry for you, you just got slaughtered there.
Where did I use VGChartz in this post?
God of War sold 2 mln. copies, search it up
Gears of War sold about 5 mln. copies search it up
Now you provide links kiddy. You should have less bubbles you're talking nonsense all the time
and how much did MGS2 sell on the ps2 before the install base got to 120mill...??
ne ways see with them...it's been awhile since they got ne good news foe the 360.....
aww theTURD is comparing the numbers of a "next gen" game with a last gen game? face it, gears of war had the advantage of had no contest at launch, but now it will have problems with the huge number of ps3 games. now keep crying xtard
Was not even a launch title. It came out the October following the 360s Nov. 05 release. The reason for compairing it to a last gen game is because you're saying it hasn't been up to par by only doing 5 million. But look at GoW2 like TheMart said, or MGS3. 120 million consoles sold and those games sell a few million? That's pathetic. Oh and if you want to bring in next gen games, how about R:FOM, a launch title for the PS3 (meaning it has been out as long as gears) It has sold what, 3 million if that?....Maybe you should be happy we compare gears to your ps2 games...cause that's pathetic.
Hahahaha Gambare don't make it worse... then you already got yourself into please....
Doesn't matter which gen.
PS2 installed base 120+ mln. and one of the best games ever sells 2 mln.
360 installed base 10 mln. at the time Gears came and sold 5 mln.
ok lets compare with the PS3 and its about 10 mln. installed base
about 1.3 mln. in sales now for Uncharted. Gears sold that within what, a month or even less.
Playstation users just don't spend so much money on buying games. Bet they play a lot of BluRay movies though!
Give up dude, you lost give up. And you're making yourself looking dumber and dumber
@ Heyheyhey (below)
Show me in real numbers instead of talking general saying nothing in reality.
So you're telling me that
Gears 5 mln. copies sold with 10 mln. users
Uncharted 1.3 mln. copies sold with 10 mln. users
Give me those indexes please. I am curious about them. Because last time I checked, the 360 has more games sold over 1 and 2 mln., plus the average attach rate per unit on the 360 is over 7 games per unit, while the PS3 might hit 4 to 5 at highest.
gambare with the problem of ps3 its still selling well enough to reach 5mil. What next?
actually MartyBoy... PS people buy MORE games than Xbox folk take a games sales, and divide it by the install base of the respective console it's on- you'll find the index is higher on the PS3 on most games
hahaha both 360fanboys are trying to excuse the console by numbers, but then please, give me a link that explain then why the 360 is losing ground against the PS3 both in hardware and software? please, go ahead
Gambare, again just stop dude. Nice tactic, trying to get attention away from your big error and mistake there in your first post but you FAIL.
Taking the discussion away from what you stated makes your weakness even more visible. How did you get so many bubbles? It's not that you're bright or something like that. Sony Protection Group members on N4G voting for each other???
When did you get back ur 5th bubble marty boi..?
M$ defence force voting for each other..?
You're so stupid. Seriously just STFU before you hurt yourself. GT3 sold 15 million units, in other words, 3 TIMES as many as Cogs of War.
And it seems that you Xbots love to compare how a game sells with a userbase of 120 million people, but conveniently forget that the PS2 has 8000+ GAMES!!! It's f***ing EASY for Cogs of War to sell 5 million units with such a low install base (compared to the PS2) and less than 1000 games, most of which suck ass and don't stand out enough to sell well at all.
How about you compare Cogs of War 2 years from now to Gran Turismo 3? Then we'll see how pathetic 360 game sales really are.
dragon your logic fails because Grand turismo was bundled with ps2 and it had a 120 million ps2 fanbase to buy it. Gears reached 5 million with less than 20 million fanbase.
Actually, your logic fails because the PS2 DID NOT have a 120 million userbase when GT3 was released.
The PS2 was released Oct. 26, 2000. GT3 wasn't released until July 10th 2001. That's 7 months, 2 weeks, and 1 day after the release of the console.
The 360 was available November 22 2005, and Gears of War was available November 7, 2006. That's almost an entire year.
Now, which console do you think had a bigger install base at the time of each games release? If the PS2 had the bigger install base, sold more units than Gears of War overall, and at a faster rate, how is it a bad thing for Gran Turismo but a good thing for Gears of War?
5 million is not a good number when all things are considered. Such as the fact that the game is 2 years old, their is now an install base of 18 million (meaning that 13 million of those people will have to buy Gears of War for it to catch up to Gran Turismo 3), and that the sequel is soon to be released.
so you are telling that grand turismo sold 13 million in the same amount of time that it took gears to sell 5 million. IF so wow but Im pretty sure that sum of 13 million is over the ps2s lifespan. And why are we arguing about Gt 3. Should we be arguing about how xbox 360 exclusives sell amazingly better than Ps3 exclusives atm.
I like that gears of war logo on the pc in the pic.
Looks like a window mode for a 360 with a plexi glass drive bay.
but whats the other game that sold over 5mil I know halo 3 and now gears whats the 3rd??
kingslayer did u just say that software sales are more important than hardware sales?
I'm guessing you did'nt, because I think you are smart enough to know that without hardware sales there are no software sales in the first place.
This is good for Epic and MS, gears of war 2 will sell even more.
i wonder what Oblivion sold?? im sure not 5 million, but pretty close.
and it seems an aweful long time for Gears of War to hit the 5 million mark.
It took a long time, but how many games do you hear surpass 5 million? Not that many.
lolololol DON'T BOTHER REPLYING I'M GONE
Yes, run away like the little b!tch you are.
for EPIC. They are one of the better devs and they deserve this.
Awesome. My personal favorite MP of all time. Way 2 go Epic !
Can't wait for Re-Emergence Day !!!
Gears of Generic Shooter reaches 5 million.
Yeah, I'll let you know when I actually care.
............................. ..............sorry, I won't ever care.
Oh yeah you care. It's obvious; if you really didn't, you wouldn't even be posting here you moron lol. PS3 fanboys are so idiotic.
Gears of Generic Shooter, excellent.
Bubbles to you.
No, when I say I don't care I really mean that I do not care. Nothing about Gears of War or Gears of War 2 sparks any interest in my heart. And do you know what I did when I first saw the GameInformer article about Gears?
...I flipped the page, that's right...I flipped the page to something I was interested in.
too bad PS3 cant have this
We don't want it.
At the end of the day, Gears is the greatest shooter ever made. No droid can change that, no matter how hard they will it.
i know it is great, really enjoying it on my pc
That's what you said about....
-Half-Life 1 and 2
-Mass Effect(yes it's a shooter)
And countless other games.
Cogs of War is generic, other games look better than it, and it's old.
Dragon, unlike your "great" PS3 titles, we said ours were great, and then we proved it by...you know...BUYING them. Eat sh!t moron.
Just finished watching Good Luck Chuck on the Moviestation 3
what did you think of it
