Holly smokes 3.5 million pre orders alone, not counting digital pre orders. Oh it's going to make their money back, AND THEN SOME.

Brazz1220d ago

it's not killing only COD, it's killing all the other games!
Rockstar should be prohibited from launching new GTA due to the crime of genocide of other "innocent games" and monopoly market during launch period! At least they should be fined for excessive awesomeness of GTA !

GraveLord1220d ago

Call of Duty is out in 2 months. Most people will buy both.

MWong1220d ago

Aw man COD over took BF4. I was hoping this BF game would leave COD in the dust.

Ittoryu1220d ago

@Mwong I was hoping both those recycled shit bag games would have died by now.

Ps4Console1220d ago (Edited 1220d ago )

How can you say that it's 3rd & now GTA is out it's top go check , they say Cod is going o break more records , they love this game in N.America & Europe especially UK I don't mind it but I prefer Killzome & BF .

Anyone know if the 360 version of GTA V is on one disk or multiple disk?

Also kind of surprised with the 360 numbers since the PS3 over took the 360 in sales like a year ago.

DEATHxTHExKIDx1220d ago (Edited 1220d ago )

Theres 2 disks. one is a mandatory install the other is the disc u play on.

Also the 360/PS3 numbers arent so different just a gap of 1 mil. Sides that 360 is more prone to shooters. Also 360 does better in america so theres a big chunk.

Jamiex661220d ago

It's on two discs, one you install and the other you play.

black0o1220d ago (Edited 1220d ago )

this is US charts not worldwide
and x360 has over 40m while the ps3 has only 20+ million

and that's why its so surprising to see ps4 beating the x1 at USA chart

Big_B0SS1220d ago

Thanks for the response guys...will be buying the PS3 version for sure since I have had bad experiances with games that come in multiple disk where one got scratched.

Forgot that this was US only.

dmeador1220d ago


Thats close to %70 more, a pretty big difference. The number of 360s in the US compared to the PS3 is the main reason

GraveLord1220d ago

2 DVDs on 360.

These are USA pre-orders. Of course the 360 is on top.

DJMarty1220d ago

Not everyboy likes GTA, just like not everybody likes FPS.

Don't know why people on N4G, don't get this.

When you combine sales, it gets really interesting. GTA is killing with both console versions. I'm picking up my copy today!

It's also very interesting when you combine sales for consoles. It paints the picture that MS still is #1 in the USA! As an American consumer, I love to see that!

1: Grand Theft Auto V (X360) - 2,100,371
2: Grand Theft Auto V (PS3) - 1,421,835
3: Call of Duty: Ghosts (X1 & X360) - 732,000
4: Call of Duty: Ghosts (PS4 & PS3) - 497,000
5: Battlefield 4 (X1 & X360) - 471,000
6: Battlefield 4 (PS4 & PS3) - 418,000
7: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (X1 & X360) - 256,000
8: Killzone: Shadow Fall (PS4) - 228,136
9: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (PS4 & PS3) - 169,737
10: Watch Dogs (PS4) - 127,338
11: (PS4) Madden NFL 25 - 68,750 (If you add sales of the PS3, the X1 & X360 would surpass)
12: (XOne) Dead Rising 3 - 68,072
13: (XOne) Forza Motorsport 5 - 67,669
14: (XOne) Ryse: Son of Rome - 64,090

Sony & MS both split 7 & 7 in the top 14 in game pre-orders
MS leads in game pre-orders with 4 3rd party yet to be released games while Sony leads in NONE
Sony has 1 first party game in the top 14 and it leads in sales for 1st party games next gen
MS has 3 first party games in the top 14

T21220d ago

"as an American consumer I love to see that " .... You,mean as a MS pr shill I think .... Your nationality has no bearing on what company has top sales ...a game fan would post what great games sold well and why

Also loved how you hid xbone numbers in that post , great marketing 101

NextGen24Gamer1220d ago (Edited 1220d ago )


Being an American it does play a part in it for me. I typically buy US products over products from other countries. It played into the reason I bought a 2013 Ford Mustang.

Now, when it comes to consoles, it just so happens the console I like most because of the GAMES & the focus on Digital Future & Tech, I favor the Xbox One. Though I also have a ps4 pre-ordered.

I'm an American, during the Olympics, I root for USA, why wouldn't I root for Microsoft? I live in Seattle. They are a homegrown company 10 miles from where I live. I have friends who work for Microsoft.

The combined numbers show that Microsoft still leads in the USA easily. It also shows how far off the internet is when it comes to perception. MS is far from dead, MS has already stated that the launch of the xbox one in regards to pre orders have already surpassed the xbox 360 from 8 years ago. That's good signs of things to come. Sure Sony has done a better job igniting their fan base and getting them to run out and pre order the ps4. The price point is amazing at 399. If the xbox one was 399, the MS fanbase would be on fire as well. Most Xbox fans are happy with their 360's and the sales SHOW THAT. MS has built a great base and Xbox one will do incredible. Next gen gaming will be a blast for both consoles. November can't come fast enough for me.

kneon1220d ago (Edited 1220d ago )

Well the 360 has the bigger install base so it's to be expected.

But if you look at next gen things aren't looking good for Microsoft, only 2 titles in the top 15 vs 5 for the PS4. It's even worse if you just look at top ten then it's 1 vs 3. And overall the PS4 has about 50% more pre-orders in the top 40.

Hicken1220d ago

I have to give you Xbox fans credit. You guy twist numbers and saying to impressive levels to get what you want out of them.

Ittoryu1220d ago


While I'm glad to see another American that buys American and loves MUSTANGS, GO BLUE OVAL!! If the VIN don't start with a one bro it aint American sadly!!

SITH1219d ago

Elite, I feel you. But look where you are at. Look who your audience is and their response. It is futile to even bother because regardless what and how you say it, you are a fanboy, and they are just consumers of a console. I buy American also. It has zero to do with my lack of interest in playstation. The controller design which did not change for three generations (which has improved in Ps4), and my past horrible experience with PSN is to blame for that. Plus my experience with Xbox, and being a beta tester of Xbox live when it launched have plenty to do with my loyalty to the console. I have great history with Xbox and Xbox live and that is where my friends and family are. So that is where I stay. Plus I love the games.

TekoIie1220d ago

I wonder how much of a boost Pokemon X/Y will give to 3DS sales.

Big_B0SS1220d ago (Edited 1220d ago )

Will the 2DS sales and 3DS sales be counted as one?

TekoIie1220d ago

They are effectively the same platform. The only noteworthy difference is the lack of 3D.

Specs are otherwise the same so I'd assume the sales are counted collectively.

fsfsxii1220d ago

Dat list, with every possible AAA garbage in there. Yummy.

mwjw6961220d ago

Whats the matter to trash indie's or Jap titles for you? Go cry in your love pillow.

Kakashi Hatake1220d ago (Edited 1220d ago )

About the PS4 and X1 preorders are those numbers the recurring total or just the amount that sold this month?

Idba1220d ago

holy shit, Killzone got more pre-orders than DR3, Forza and Ryse alone in the US. really didnt expect a difference on that scale

shivvy241220d ago

Im surprised killzone is up there with cod and bf4 ! Killzones gonna go big next gen !

xDHAV0K24x1220d ago

Killzone has NEVER been a system seller. I'm curious how well it will do and I will give it a try on my cousins ps4.

Regis1220d ago

Are they counting the PS4 bundle if so they shouldn't

Hicken1220d ago

If they are, they're counting the bundles for all such games. Battlefield, call of duty and so on will be counted as well.

Nice try though.

Regis1220d ago

Not try to troll just asking a question if it was individual sales

mewhy321220d ago

Sure sounded like a troll to me Regis.

Regis1220d ago


This is why I hate the internet I need to see people's faces when I talk so I can tell what they are saying and wow no PS4 is better in that comment good job mewhy32
