The most pre-ordered games in the USA ranked by unit sales: 1 Halo 5: Guardians (XOne) 2 Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4) 3 The Elder Scrolls Online (XOne) 4 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (PS4) 5 Final Fantasy Type-0 HD (PS4) 6 Bloodborne (PS4)
Its amazing how Halo 5 is on top. And what is more amazing is Kingdom Hearts 3 became number 9 after it was number 11. Also 7 PS4 games on top 10. Thats great too.
That's because Majora's Mask and the Order have already released so they are off the charts meaning other titles move up.
TYPE-0 has more preorders than bloodborne in US. legitimately and pleasantly surprised. dat ffxv demo thirst is real... guess the name still means something honestly though i just cant trust these numbers, i mean ESO , how is ESO so high up? kingdom hearts in top 10? makes 0 sense. how does the last guardians have more po's than ffxv when kh is so high up?
What is so special about Halo 5? COD is still the best shooter whether you like it or not.
@Mikeslemonade Halo 5 beta was surprisingly good. If you honestly think COD is the best shooter then you clearly dont play alot of first person shooters. Battlefield, Titanfall, hell even Destiny has far better gameplay.
"What is so special about Halo 5?" Halo has a sizable fan base whether you like it or not. "COD is still the best shooter whether you like it or not." It's the iPhone of shooters. They're the best selling single brand but there are better phones to buy.
@vishmarx: The Elder scrolls is now the strongest RPG brand among most RPG gamers in North America. It is the series that is having the most influence among other RPG developer. You are free to embrace that or be upset, but that is where the industry is. So you have developers trying to bring that since of freedom and openness to their games, and gamers who obviously want more of it. I being a fan of the series am bias, but am glad to see developers, not copy, but add more freedom to their games also.
@mikeslemonade LOL insurgency would make call of duty babies run home crying to their mothers it's a real shooter where you have to use tactics and aim. The guns do real damage and perform like real guns not water pistols like Call of duty.
I was waiting Bloodborne in a better position as it arrives in 4 weeks...
Bloodborne will be fantastic but it's a niche game.
EVERY game is a niche game. Kinda tired of that being used as an excuse. The Souls games have garnered a pretty significant fanbase, and word of mouth will have increased the odds of this game selling well. Don't know why people think that because it's not a shooter of some sort, it should be considered "niche" and not considered capable of appealing to the mainstream.
@Spotie - sales of games usually indicate how "mainstream" a game is. The last Souls game sold like 2.5 - 3 million units with an install base of near 80 million (PS3). Using the same ratio to an install base of 20 million would = less than a million in sales. Now times are different, and people are thirsty for exclusives, but I still can't see this game selling insanely well.
@Neondr... yeah those calculations never work. its highly likely that those 'niche' gamers were amongst the earliest adopters of ps4. actually people should really compare the sales numbers of most 3rd party platform games.
@vishmarx - fair enough. Those games have never been my "cup of tea" so I doubt I will be buying it. But who knows.. maybe I will take a chance on it.
I'm happy to see W3 in the top 5!
Yeah, i am pretty sure it will sell well and with its budget (40 millions usd, both marketing and development) they will make some great profits.
Wait wait wait. So when someone spits out sales figures about the PS4 being 8 million ahead in global hardware sales and it gets shot down because it's VgChartz but now Gaylo is first in preorder and the figures are legit? So basically only when it suits the xbone narrative. I thought the secret sauce people were crazy lol.. wow. Who preorders these days anyway? And when are they gonna fix MCC already?
That report was shut down by sony fanboys like your self. They believed the ps4 was 10 million ahead got butthurt and shut it down "bcuz it VGGchat lol" You in-secured fanboys blame it on anyone but your selves... When it suits the xbox narrative people like you troll and get salty. Alot of people preorder, dont know what your trying to get at here?.. When are you gonna abandon the band wagon? MCC has been working better than ever scince the latest update, nice try troll
I'm sorry how's broken delay club and the order : copy cat of gears of war doing ?
@fanboy trolls above PS4 is 20.2 million sold-through to consumers. VGCharts regularly undertracks PS4 sales. This is a fact. Driveclub is a great game that only had online issues its first 3 weeks. It has gotten plenty of updates and features since launch. There is nothing broken about Driveclub, and many games have been delayed this generation not just Driveclub. Your lies and sick blind fanboy hatred do nothing. The Order is a good game that millions of gamers have enjoyed.
I see a lot of people must be desperate for a Halo game that isn't a broken mess.
Halo is like 6-7 months away! Sheesh lol
Kingdom Hearts 3 is 5 years away and it is on no.9 so...
Does Halo even have a date?
No, but my guess is late September
Hail to King baby Halo doesn't even have a release date and it's #1 EDIT, ROFL, check out the bitterness below, I guess the truth hurts. Can someone who disagreed tell me exactly what outsold Halo on seventh gen consoles? That's 42m+ sales for Halo just in gen 7 on 360. 12m+ just for Halo 3 I'll wait But I won't hold my breath
Isn't the window near September? I really hope they have a good bundle with halo so i can buy that
yea, "king". 10 millions behind GRAN TURISMO
that wasn't necessary
And a extra console generation under its belt.
Lol so you compare a racing game to a shooter numbers wise despite the fact that one of them is not even out yet talk about desperation
VGChartz pre-order numbers are often highly inaccurate. Your taunting over bad VGC estimates and fanboy name calling is worthless.
Guys don't belive this chartz...it's VGchartz after all. Bloodborne is pretty good at amazon top sellers.Even the collector's edition is charting.Imo,BB will be the best seller "souls" game.any one want to bet?
Absolutely. I can guarantee you it won't sell as much as DS2. There was 4 times the install base when that game released.
Told ppl halo 5 wouldn't suffer sales wise this halo could release the same as halo mmc and halo 6 would still be at the top it's amazing how big of a fan base halo has
It's Halo, you know it's going to sell.
Exactly although judging by my disagrees ppl thought I was trolling or something? I jus don't get this site Edit: yea I guess ur right
never look too much into it. You could say the world is round and you'd get disagrees. ;)
If they play their cards right I can see Halo 5 being the first console exclusive of this generation selling 5 million copies or more. That's a big if. I think either that game or Uncharted will be the first games to do it.
I would be surprised if either did to be honest with you. Uncharted has a better chance only because the PS4 has twice the install base. But never discount Master Chief.
The ps 2 had 7 times the install base the og xbox had yet halo 2 out sold almost every single ps2 exclusive. Im not worried if it happens again. The xb1 also tends to have the higher game attach rate.
Halo 4 managed 1.8 million+ orders the week before launch in the US alone. Halo 3 racked up 8.1 million sold by January 2008 (released in September 2007 2 years after the 360 launched). So that should indicate what Halo 5 should achieve.
I think the 360 sales 2 years post launch were a lot higher than what the Xbox One sales will be at. But it should still help move consoles and sell very well.
wont be that high this time around keep in mind this is vgchartz for one, also all the other AAA coming this year havent really been revealed yet, you can expect there to be a ton announced at e3 or earlier like COD and AC, Star Wars BF ext..
I'm telling you this shows how many gamers still playing 360 n not moved to next gen yet,.. The next gen race will be close in the next couple years....
There are many more gamers still playing PS3 and 360 than PS4 and XB1. No one needs you to tell them that. It's just about the simplest math there is. And no, it won't.
No it won't. PS4 will outsell Xbox by 2:1 the entire generation.
Wow imagine the worldwide numbers for halo, i know me and all my friends have it pre-ordered in australia. CANT WAIT the beta was beyond amazing it was easily the best halo multiplayer i have ever played.
VGC software charts are complete stupid guesses. There is not a single thing accurate about them.
don't believe this shit for a second,the last guardian is there and had a weekly change of 55761 and a total of 55761 preorders
That's because Sony didn't renew the trademark for The Last Guardian a few weeks ago, and then it had a change of heart and renewed it. Preorders for TLG were probably cancelled and then reinstated soon after.
