Titanfall pips Dark Souls II to the top spot, Yoshi's New Island ends up at 12
No surprise really but I still give credit to Dark Souls 2 for coming in at number 2
I think only reason why DS2 isnt first, is because too many people have died during Demons/Dark Souls times /s.
Weakness: cowardice therefore try Titanfall
RIPSKATEDESTROY, I see what you're saying but both are on their 1st week sales and Dark Souls 2 is a very popular sequel selling on two platforms with an install base over 160mil, Titanfall is a new IP meaning it has no advantage of a prior fanbase waiting for the sequel, and although it's on pc, pc sales are waaay behind X1 sales so the bulk of Titanfall sales are from a platform with about 4.5-5mil install base currently. So although I would not say its a surprise, it still could have went either way, as I wouldn't have been surprised if DS' s 2 was on top which is why I will say Titanfall being #1 under those circumstances is indeed impressive.
One has been marketed like there was no tomorrow the other sold on prior knowledge of the series and word of mouth.
the reason why DS2 isn't number one is people waiting for the real version the 25th of April.
Well it was the only other new game, and a lot of PS3 / 360 owners were looking forward to the game. Would have been embarassing if one of the other games on the list (that were already out for 1+ weeks) beat a new game with the hype that Dark Souls 2 had.
The Souls series has never been a massive mainstream seller. Pretty sure every CoD game in the last few years outsold the Souls games as well. It has no bearing on quality. Pretty sure most people agree that the Souls games are better than the last few CoDs. Side note: to people who think the lighting mechanics were completely stripped from DS2, use the Pharros Contraption in No Man's Wharf.
damn casuls. Seriously if you havent picked up Dark Souls II DO SO NOW!!!! Its an awesome game a refines alot of minor problems people had with the first Dark Souls.
15 Aliens: Colonial Marines wtf?
haha yeah! It has been on there for awhile
Yeah was wondering what that was about but I think it was on sale for like £4 or something which might have resulted in those sales. Maybe...I'm not sure
It's an odd one, i've only ever seen it in the bargain bin section I'm more surprised Super Mario 3D World's not in the top 15, everyone I know who's gotta WiiU loves it
Yeah, that game was selling like hotcakes when the price got slashed. I guess people were curious enough to check out the train wreck at that price.
Minecraft... geez that games sells.
Great work Titanfall, you deserve it. Also great job being high up on the list South Park, you were amazing.
Ive just read on oxm that titanfall has supposedly boosted xbox one sales by 97% in the uk if true that's some good going . And is south park worth a pick up are shall i wait for a price drop ? Looks like its getting good numbers
If you like South Park then YES you should definitly get the game
Cheers i shall give it ago then cant beat south park .
Both games are amazing..congrats to respawn and fromsoftware.
=D like there was ever any doubt. . .
Nice!!! The only other console exclusive other than Titanfall on the list is Forza 5. So much for Titanfail or Flopza that the haters keep using in their urban dictionary.
Nice to see dark souls 2 doing well. Though was it any surprise that titanfall sold more? Multiplayer FPS for mass market vs. RPG for a rather niche crowd. But still dark souls 2 is doing better than expected. Awesome. From deserves it.
that they do.....its an incredible game. 10/10 imo buuuuuut i will say this, its unbelievably hard at first. def takes longer to get strong and start breezing through it than dark souls did.
dark souls 2 = man game Titanfall = little boys or old man's game I wish I could call down a titan in dark souls though because I would never leave the thing.
j ai perdu le code titanfall
...and i'm still waiting for amazon to ship my copy of Dark Souls 2 CE even though i pre-ordered it 25 september 2013...
i love Dark Souls but that's great for a new IP like Titanfall. Everyone should play it!
I hate you EA, but you deserve every sale for this game. It's brilliant. (On an off note, it's good to See Rayman Legends on the list. That game is better than every 2D Mario game I've ever played.)
Yeah but Dark Souls 2 certainly beat T-Fall's meta score... http://www.metacritic.com/g...
