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.

Neonridr1319d ago (Edited 1319d ago )

That's because Majora's Mask and the Order have already released so they are off the charts meaning other titles move up.

vishmarx1319d ago (Edited 1319d ago )

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.

wakeNbake1319d ago

@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.

MysticStrummer1319d ago (Edited 1319d ago )

"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.

Bigpappy1319d ago

@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...

tinynuggins1319d ago

Bloodborne will be fantastic but it's a niche game.

Spotie1319d ago

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.

Neonridr1319d ago (Edited 1319d ago )

@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.

vishmarx1319d ago

@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.

Neonridr1319d ago

@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.

Dark111319d ago

I'm happy to see W3 in the top 5!

DarkOcelet1319d ago

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.

PudgeyBurrito1319d ago (Edited 1319d ago )

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?

Professor_K1319d ago

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

Kitty_xbox1319d ago

I'm sorry how's broken delay club and the order : copy cat of gears of war doing ?

gamerfan1281318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

@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.

medman1319d ago

I see a lot of people must be desperate for a Halo game that isn't a broken mess.

Blaze9291319d ago

Halo is like 6-7 months away! Sheesh lol

DarkOcelet1319d ago

Kingdom Hearts 3 is 5 years away and it is on no.9 so...

KwietStorm1319d ago

Does Halo even have a date?

tuglu_pati1319d ago

No, but my guess is late September

Foehammer1319d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

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

Rimeskeem1319d ago (Edited 1319d ago )

Isn't the window near September?

I really hope they have a good bundle with halo so i can buy that

emilijo7771319d ago

yea, "king". 10 millions behind GRAN TURISMO

RiseofScorpio1319d ago

And a extra console generation under its belt.

Kiwi661319d ago

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

gamerfan1281318d ago

VGChartz pre-order numbers are often highly inaccurate. Your taunting over bad VGC estimates and fanboy name calling is worthless.

Bill_Willson_CIA1319d ago

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?

Neonridr1319d ago

Absolutely. I can guarantee you it won't sell as much as DS2. There was 4 times the install base when that game released.

Blackleg-sanji1319d ago

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

Neonridr1319d ago

It's Halo, you know it's going to sell.

Blackleg-sanji1319d ago (Edited 1319d ago )

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

Neonridr1319d ago

never look too much into it. You could say the world is round and you'd get disagrees. ;)
