No surprise really but I still give credit to Dark Souls 2 for coming in at number 2
dmitrijs88  +   282d ago
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.
kingduqc  +   282d ago
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.

15 Aliens: Colonial Marines wtf?
RIPSKATEDESTROY  +   282d ago
haha yeah! It has been on there for awhile
Septic  +   282d ago
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
Hellsvacancy  +   282d ago
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.

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.
Kivespussi  +   282d ago
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.
Captain Qwark 9  +   282d ago
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.
SirBradders  +   282d ago
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.

...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...
idontcare  +   282d ago
i love Dark Souls but that's great for a new IP like Titanfall.

Everyone should play it!
Geekman  +   281d ago
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.)
BOLO  +   281d ago
Yeah but Dark Souls 2 certainly beat T-Fall's meta score... http://www.metacritic.com/g...
