Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for the Playstation 3 has become the second game to have reached 3 million in sales.
Congrats Infinity Ward. If you think about it, Motorstorm was only able to reach 3 mil because it was bundled, while COD4 was not. EDIT: Only 170k more and it becomes the best selling PS3 game, unless GTA4 or MGS4 takes their throne but with the GOTY edition arriving, sales should keep up for a while.
OMG! What kind of moron disagreed with you? Must've been 360 fanboys. GTA IV might outsell this game in one week. It's been selling very well.
Yeah, pretty weird. I didnt try to offend anyone oO and didnt insult any consoles. Maybe it was me saying "The only reason Motostorm reached to 3 million was cause it was bundled"? I have motorstorm, good game, but its a fact that it reached so far because it was bundled with the PS3.
THIS IS A RUMOR lol Congrats to infinity ward. GTA and MGS4 will be surpassing it though. Hopefully:|
will surpass COD4 in one month max(i think in 10 days but thats wat i think). MGS4 will surpass it also in the same time as GTA4! i am wondering who will sell more on ps3 MGS4 or GTA4?? they r both strong titles but one is exclusive! i think MGS4 will end up selling more after a period of time, its so huge and i hope there is more bosses than the 4 women bosses! i have faith in kojima, he can easily put more unique bosses if he wanted to, but i remember he saying that blue ray is too small for his ultimate game! i think sony should really advertise it like GTA4 and halo 3 to maximize the software/hardware sales of ps3 and MGS4! those who agree with me give me a bubble please, i would be happy if i get just one more:)!!
Liquid Ocelot will probably be a boss as well.
I remeber in one of those long previews they said there are more bosses but they don't want to spoil anything.
i've got a couple of people on my friend list who in the mid 3.5 mil position on the cod4 leaderboards. how may has this sold on the 360 i have to ask?
@ 1.7 Many people have multiple accounts. I, for one, have purchased CoD4 or the PS3 once (and for the 360/pc once), and yet my machine has played online with four different accounts: mine; my 2 brothers; and a crappy account I have for playing about with when friends come over.
GTA4 should pass CoD4 soon
Its actually 3rd. Both Resistance: Fall of man and Motorstorm topped 3million sales, both confirmed to reach that point by Sony. VG charts are useless when it comes to software
you took the words out of my mouth...but like i couldn't remember the website, in cases somebody asked for sources...also...I remember singstar being huge multiplatinum or so...and vg charts didn't even have it... edit2: it has ps3 version at 300,000...it's very very low for singstar title...their huge in europe...probably only counting the eng lang version...
sorry, didnt know that
@shine1396 Its higher, there have been over a million Singstar downloads already. i suspect its closer to 750K in sales.
Sony announced that they had sold 3 million copies of Resistance, yes. But they had sold 3 million copies of the game to shops, not to the consumers. VGChartz tracks software sold from shops to customers. Sony tracks: Warehouse -> Shop VGC tracks: Shop -> Our grubby mits Also, about the Singstar comments, Singstar may have sold well on the PS2, but that by no-means means that they will continue to sell well on the PS3. The PS3 has a completely different demographic to the PS2, the PS2 sold well to the casual gamer, and the PS3 doesn't. Singstar sells mainly also to the casual gamer. And using song-downloads to try and figure out sales is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read (well, one of the most ridiculous things). Especially when you pull such a random number out of your arse. Would it be so hard to believe that people have downloaded 4-5 tracks. Hell, I know that if I owned the game (which I don't, it doesn't appeal to my demographic) I would have downloaded at least 20 songs by now.
and those that bought the game to support it. Wonder how well the Variety Map Pack is doing so far. I did my part and bought it.
It came out way too late to put any interest on me. I've heard only 2 of 3 maps are really worth playing anyways. Perhaps if it was $4 instead of $9 I might have got it, but my interest in the game has dropped drastically due to my, "lack of prestige". It seems to be the only thing everyone online even cares about and if you aren't Prestige and you win, you're a, "noob" because you didn't go prestige...
They deserved it
GTA4 joins the list. Probably.
best FPS so far Looking at RFOM2 to maybe top it for online madness Congrats IW
whats funny its probaly one dude with 4 accounts
It's just 360 fanchildren pressing the disagree button. They don't have anything intelligent to say.
yep this is actually the third to reach 3 million. GTA IV is next and I hope MGS 4 after that is all the MGS fans will update from a PS2 to a PS3
Infinity Ward's rock.
play on-line all the time
GTA4 smokes COD4,just the online alone is the best game EVER!!!well gotta go back online in free mode.see you in there.....kabooooooooooooooooo oooooooooom your dead.ONLINE INSANITY!!!
could have sworn RFOM sold over 3 mill..also....ne ways...great game......deserves all the sales in the world it can achieve... well i guess we will be seeing alot more treple million sellers ..to come....in the near future...
...was highly underrated and disserves much greater success. This is especially true when you consider it was really the first exclusive FPS for the PS3 and not some port.
I agree...but the main reason for RFOM not getting enough credit..was becuase it Launched close to the release of Gears.....and the Hype around Gears ..just over-shadowed RFOM .. But RFOM2 will own...and this time around..im sure everyone is hyped for it...shoot im saying now..that FROM2 will own Gears 2...in every way and RFOM is also..one of the best Launch games ever.
Don't blame Gears of War. The games are on two different systems.
I know I am prob going to be chewed out for this, but do we honestly really need to make a news post everytime a console game reaches a certain sold point on VGchartz?
no dude...but considering not many PS3 games have been able to pass 3mill...so far.....and COD4 is a great game..so yes in this case...
is a big number
...regardless of all the issues I have with the inept COD4 lobby system I can't stop coming back for more. When you finally end up in a game where you have a good connection to the host COD4 is like cocaine for gamers!!!!!! Now, if only they could also make sniping a little harder... My current Kill/Death ratio stands at 4.07 and only about 4 of the 35,000 kills I have were from using a sniper rifle.
Of course vgchartz just pulls numbers out their ass so we have no idea how many copies CoD4 or any other game has sold unlease an offical number is release by sony or the 3rd party that makes the games.
The beta was gay, and It totally turned me off and now I dont wanna play the single player. Its wasy to slow for me, Even GTA4 runs in a better pace. Oh well. ZOTE3 FTW!
I don't understand. What does that have to do with Cod4 reaching 3 million of the ps3?
While I agree with White Sharagan about Motorstorm and Resistance having good sales due to bundles...You must also take into account that many of those PS3 sales were due to the fact that Motorstorm and Resistance were available. If Motorstorm and Resistance hadn't launched with PS3.... PS3 wouldn't have sold as highly without question, as both games were considered great new ip's and top quality launch titles. I think people disagreed with you because you downplayed the fact that most (including myself) bought a launch PS3 for these 2 games. If PS3 had of launched with C.O.D.4 I wouldn't have been as excited to get the machine right away, as I am a huge fan of Insomniac and Evolution Studios past games, and totally new, fresh ip's that looked and turned out being as awesome as these is what I get excited about in gaming. I also agree with Close Second on how under rated Resistance was and still is...It is still the fps I have the most fiun playing online......it has no lag with 40players, while COD4 can't handle 8 player deathmatches without lag. That attrocious site GS also scored that pile of doggy doo PDZ, higher (9), than Resistance.
thats true I did buy the PS3 on launch for Resistance and Motorstorm (until it was delayed til Feb) Im not saying the games wouldnt have sold, but in Motostorms case, PS3 bundled helped at least 500k of those sales. Cant wait for Motorstorm 2 and R2!
Only.. TWO? HAHAAHAHAHAHAH!!!
lmfao. after what, a year? who the hell cares. real gamers buy games on 360.
Real gamers buy a PC and play every single game that comes out on the 360 when you have the superior controls and visuals
not to change the subject but guess what guys. for the second time i got the RROD.an to make it so bad I got just 1 flashing light AGAIN which is not covered under the 3 year warranty so its gonna cost me 100 bucks. this is my 2nd different xbox this has happened to. I dont know how much more I can take of this. just got GTA, an play COD4 alot. now I only have my PS3 that I have no games for because I buy them all on my 360, so now im stuck. maybe now I'll mix it up an buy games for both regularly. sucks to be me. GNOTHE1
but brah I feel sorry for you. I went through 3 ps2s last gen (one my kids broke though) and I only had a GC w/ 2-3 games most of the time. I've been in your shoes. Your "purchasing strategy" may not seem logical at the moment, but hang in there. By this time next year, you should have at least 5 AAA ps3 games in your library and will be able to tolerate your 360's absence. In the meantime, lol RENT asap.
Xbox has been 2 years on the market you morons. Not only that, but it's cheaper so "real gamers" would have more disposable income for games. Not only that, but after a massive drought of games with the first Xbox, Xtards are buying games like crazy now, since they don't have as much taste as PS3 fans, which are used to playing quality games and diverse games because the previous two generations were filled with them on the PlayStation brand. If you look closely, most best sellers on 360 are shooters. Is it surprising that Virtua Fighter 5 and Devil May Cry 4 have higher attach ratios on PS3, despite the supposedly glorious achievements feature? I bet that Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon would have higher attach ratios on PS3. It's a fact that PS3 owners prefer diversity rather than two or three genres. No wonder GTAIV has a higher attach ratio on PS3 than on 360, and that GTAIV is pushing more PS3s than 360s.
You do know they are gonna come to you're house an burn it to the ground for making sense against the "The Church of Xbox" right? Just a heads up buddy.
To all those saying RFOM has sold 3+ million...official linky please as I'd be quite interested.
I haven't read anything about that at all. I would love to see an official statement as well. @ shine Singstar games are kinda like Brain Training. They start out slow, but they sell very consistently weeks at a time. Singstar PS3 will continue to sell 5-10k each week until holiday whenever it will pick up.
well deserved..Sony needs to sell more software tho..not just "big" games but plenty other games don't sell like they should.
Wow COD4 is only the 3rd game to crack 3 million in sales on the PS3. In fact it really is only the first title since both RFOM and Motorstorm are bundled with the PS3 depending on what territory you live in. So your true best selling game is a multiplatform game. Sonys first party games suck a$$. Wow the power of the Cell and 4D have really delivered for Sony huh??? What a joke.
Great news for Infinity Ward and da PsTripple, props to all yall keep it pimpin. Chuuuuuuuuuuuuch.
Whats the big deal about this, the 360 has sold 5.75 mill units according to vgcharts. This is just sony non-news from the sony fan boy camp. Pointless and serves no purpose.
And there was an article here on N4G...about the COD4 for the 360..selling 5 million.... so wats ur point...?
Xbox has been on the market for a year longer than the PS3 and we have "6" over 3 million 2 of those are at 5 and 1 is at 8. How pathetic, but there sure are alot of movies sold. XD XD XD
Nice, now when is GTA 4 gonna join the pack.
Then that means that about one in 4 PS3 owners has Call of Duty 4... Dang, that's pretty good, I'd say!
it really pays off to do the extra mile and give us consumers a GOOD PRODUCT. thank you.
OF COURSE IT HIT 3 MILLION AND MAYBE CAN DO MORE. YOU KNOW WHY!.....WELL BECAUSE SONY ONLY HAVE A FEW GAMES. SO WHEN ANY NEW ONE COMES OUT. IT IS LIKE.... " I GOT TO BUY IT BECAUSE ALL MY OTHER GAME ARE SH*T AND I HAVE HAD THESE FOR MONTHS " ANY NEW GAME COMES OUT! YOU HAVE TO BUY IT OR ELSE YOU HAVE NOTHING TO PLAY. SO OF COURSE IT WILL REACH THAT HIGHT! ALL YOU PS3 (FANBOYS) OUT THERE ARE THINKING I WISH I COULD PLAY ALL THOSE AWESOME GAMES XBOX 360 HAS!.....ALSO ENJOY ITS AMAZING POWER FOR GRAPHICS AND SUPERIOR ONLINE!( YEAH, WELL PS3 ONLINE IS FREE. WOP-TI-DO! YEAH AND IT SHOWS. CHEAP BAST*RDS ) ALSO BY THE WAY......THIS GAME IS SH*T! SAME OLD REPETITIVE GAMEPLAY! NOTHING HAS CHANGED SINCE THE FIRST ONES...AT LEAST BAD COMPANY ARE GOING DESTRUCTIBLE ENVIRONMENTS. THATS WORTH A BUY!!!!! WORTHLESS GAME FOR A WORTHLESS CONSOLE.... PSH*T!
wow, how old are you again? and whats with all the caps lock crap reported
