Halo & Gears fest :( .... Lack of variety and diversity in genres right there.

Most Kinect Adventures sales are likely from the kinect bundles but funny & surprising none the less :p.

Basically hit the nail on the head. 1 bundled game and a bunch of Halo and Gears of War games.

@darthv72

Lack in diversity and genres right there on PS3. Ironically, the PS and Xbox chart each had 3 games on the top 10 and each had 2 genres!

PS and Xbox are more similar than you think!!!
mhunterjr  +   329d ago
I don't get your point. The top ten Sony list also only had 3 franchises GT, crash bandicoot and uncharted. A Nintendo list would probably only have mario, wii sports, and pokemon.

If your talking about the 10 top selling exclusives per manufacturer, You aren't going to see much variety.

@ darthv72

Didn't know that Sony's one had been published already. Thanks for the link.

So that is Top 9 shooters 1 motion game versus Top 5 sims Top 3 platforms Top 2 action-adventures. A bit more diversified but not much I agree. My bad

Hmmm on closer thought isn't Kinect Adventures supposed to be higher has 24 million+ units have been sold to date according to MS ---> http://bgr.com/2013/02/12/m...

darthv72, yeah but when you compare the PS3 vs Xbox 360 titles, the PS3 games are more diverse.
OrangePowerz  +   329d ago
@Nuke Sony has 3 Genres not 2 :)

Besides of that both lists are dominated by a few franchises, altough I would prefer to see some other game in the list instead of the crapy Kinect Adventure.

Safe to say Halo and Gears did okay on the 360 lol.

Interestingly they didn't launch with one of those games. I'm curious to see what Ryse, DR3, and Forza are going to do sales wise. Forza will probably do well but Ryse and DR3 are not your typical Xbox best seller type games...
trunkswd  +   329d ago
I would expect Dead Rising 3 to sell between 1.5 and 2 million units lifetime. DR1 has sold 2m units on the Xbox 360 and DR2 1.4m units on the Xbox 360.

Ryse I would guess closer to 1m than 2m.
iamnsuperman  +   329d ago
I think less than that as games like COD, BF, AC, Watch Dogs..... will take a lot of sales away from first party games. Remember only an X amount of consoles will be available at launch and that will be taken by these big franchises (Watch dogs is an exception being a new ip but it has gotten a lot of coverage and support by the media)

As a person who has only gamed on Xbox in the past 12 years, I am expecting Ryse to out sell Forza in the U.S, and DR3 to out sell them both. But I would not be surprised if a causal Kinect game like Zoo Tycoon end up in the mix. With the weak wii-U, the casual market is wide open and will either find its way back to the wii, or move over to the Xbox. I don't see Sony really pushing in that direction.
ABizzel1  +   329d ago
I think it would be better to do the review based on franchise sales rather than game sales, or for a single console (360 / PS3 / Wii).

Whatever game sells best on that console is going to dominate the list. I'm sure if you looked at Sony and Nintendo Gran Turismo 1 - 5 & maybe some other exclusives and Mario & Pokemon would dominate those list as well.

Edit:

Just like it thought here's the Sony list

Gran Turismo, Crash, and Uncharted only make the list.

Nintendo's list is dominated by bundled games.

I did top 10 lists by platforms earlier this year. The top 10 lists by platform and publisher will be updated once per year. As long as there is a change. I'm not going to do a top 10 of NES games more than once.
ABizzel1  +   329d ago
It's fine I just wanted to see the top selling franchises per console per generation.
trunkswd  +   329d ago
Here is the list of the 'Top 10' sales articles I have done. Scroll down to see the ones by platform.

The exclusive arcade games should not be overlooked smh
trunkswd  +   329d ago
Minecraft is the only Xbox Live Arcade game that would make the top 10. That includes third party ones.
xDHAV0K24x  +   329d ago
Missing out on Deadlight, Mark Of The Ninja, Ascend among others. But of course some gamers are not open minded. Looking forward to the new indie/arcade scene on xb1
Nerdmaster  +   329d ago
It would be good if Nintendo released numbers for its digital sales. All of my Wii U games purchases and 3/4 of my 3DS games purchases have been digital.
