A list of games with the biggest sales launch in the United States. Halo 3 unsurprisingly is at the top with 3.3 million followed by the recent release of Grand Theft Auto IV.
Hey PS3 Droids What happen with Metal Gear Solid 4 HAHAHAHAHAHA...Even Mario Kart sells more than Snakeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...JAJAJ AJAJAJAJAJA...OHHHH i Forgot Pokemon JAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJA JA
oh right.. yea it was the game of the century. : ( ).....who are you? jarjarbinks? grow up kid.
Gaylo 3, the most overhyped, the most sh!t the most overrated game in the world sold more than MGS4 but does it beat MGS4 ? Answer is no ! I don't give a **** how much MGS4 sold. I enjoyed the game. Devs got their profits too. Actually I don't give a **** if it goes for 360 too because 1- PS3 fans finished the game already 2- Sony sold consoles 3- Konami gets more money 4- PS3 version superior
You sir are a moron!
and how many are still playing halo online?? and how many MGSO??....damn EDIT: oh really like the other multi games that are superior??...oh wait
go suck Master chief's ballz. other people say they are salty and COD4 online is way better than Halo online. Halo sucks ! I don't even know why this game is sh!tlular.
You are just upset that the 50 cent game isn't in that list. Go pick up your welfare check and chomp on some chicken wings. ARF ARF
that's why I'm sad
Metal Gear 4!!! Where Are You!!!
#16 on the list =P i'm more interested in where MGS4 stands in world wide sales for the first month. We know it sold bucket loads in Japan and Europe in the first month, places where those other games probably don't do as well.
^^^^ #16 on the list including bundle?, >_> Madden 07 2.0 million (one week)& Madden NFL 08 2.0 million wow that lame game is still selling well.
i wonder if it beats gears of war...remember fastest selling not like after a month
maybe ur not interested in Football games...those games were quite fun...
^^^ ESPN NFL 2K > Madden
betting GoW 2 will be in the top 5 and Fable 2 in the top 10
thats crazy how GTA IV wasnt able to unseat Halo3.. I expected GTA to top it because it was a Multi plat game!
so truly halo 2 should be at the top since its says those numbers are for one day, correct?
It is information like this is why FF 13 and other games see the potential to sale on the 360. After the surpise on Monday, we shouldn't be surpised by announces in the future towards this.
and that's why FFXIII will sell like crazy in Xbox 360, good move square enix...Kojima my man, how do you possible miss all this $$$$$???, ok who wants to bet now wich game will sell better than the other, FFXIII PS3 version in Japan or FFXIII x360 version in NA??, meanwhile Square Enix will be swimming in dollars and every gamer in the world will be enjoying FFXIII. "Snake coming, coming, mission status??:..... Sanke: i.....i....i can't take it anymore, he is too strong, omg....iim done, tell meryl that i tryed but master chieff is...is...is.... Sanke?? Snake?? NOOOOOOOOO"
No question making the game multi platform IS a blow. I don't dare question that. However, FF isn't a big system seller in America. It will sell many copies yeah. But even if this game was still sony exclusive it wouldn't sell that many more systems in America. And the main reason ff13 won't be a system seller in America is because America doesn't take to Japanese RPG games well. Now in Japan, THAT is where the FF and Dragon quest franchises thrive. Japan lives and breathes Final Fantasy and Dragon quest. And with the fact that the game won't go to the Japanese 360 will 100% make FF13 THE system seller in Japan for the Ps3.
Snake? Snake? Snakeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!! mmm... weird... 2 xbox 360 exclusive games on that list... unlike the PS3 that have 0... Konami may want to re-think their strategy if they want to be in this list.
let me finish that for u Snake? Snake? Snakeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!! dont kill master chief for him being in the most over hyped piece of crap game and there is one up there so ur dumb
^^^^ Take this fool's bubbles.. he got to many... I'm just stating the facts... No PS3 EXCLUSIVES IN THE LIST... stop moaning and take it... now don't cry... it may be overrated to uhhh.. people that do not even own an xbox 360... but people vote with their wallet... overrated or not... it whip any PS3 game in terms of sales...
so to u mgs 4 is coming to the 360 cuz i see down at number ten mgs 4
how about i take ur bubble bladestar and doshey dont worry he is just mad cuz ps3 outsold 360 again and it has a game on that list poor poor xbot
he's using racial terminology which isn't welcome here at n4g.
Ohhhh...Halo 2 sell more than Metal Gay solid 4 JAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJA JAJAJAJAJAJA...LOL
it's safe to say the Halo series has the highest attach rate out of any console compared to the total lifetime sales. Must of been at least in the 40% range..and madden sells on monopoly alone..
or meybe im been a fanboy but when i say kz2 is look amazing im sure it will make many pc n fps freaks jump in a ps3 just too play kz2
yea yur being a fanboy....cuz there is no way KZ2 will even sell close to as fast as Halo...or as much... KZ doesnt have enough background in games to make sales numbers like halo.....it should do respectible numbers but it wont touch Halo numbers especially in the fastest selling
i really hope you don't actually believe that. Because if a game with the magnitude of GTA4 can't top H3, why would you really think K2 would?
MGS 4 is the most Overrated game in recent history. The action is boring, just a slightly better Splinter Cell game with waayyy to many cutscenes. I think they put cutscenes in this game just to make you forget how uneventful MGS 4 really is. Halo 3 OWNZZZZ MGS 4 buy miles. MGS 4 will, never, ever sell as much as Halo 3 or 2. People still play Halo 2 while MGS 4 is already dropping off the map, just a flash in the pan...
1 million in 2 weeks is pretty damn good. Then consider it has sold 3.4 million world wide. Konami isn't teething, I'm sure.
Halo 3 is a mediocre game that many 12 years old like to play. Mgs4 on the other hand is a masterpiece that can only be understand by the intelligent. Don't compare halo 3 with mgs4, as they are on completely different levels. You know what, aside from bots who claim halo 3 has sold 3 million, I rarely hear them saying how good it is.
let's talk about the fastest selling game systems. I will give you a clue, "it damn sure ain't nobody's xbox 1 or 360" LMAO
Halo 3 was advertised to the max, I saw the stupid commercial on my TV so many times. Anyways Halo 3 was over hyped. That's a FACT
If it was "so over-hyped" then why are so many people still playing it today? You would think if it was all just hype people would play the game and move on. Just a quick stat from bungie.net: Halo 3 Players Online:197,803 Unique Players (Last 24 Hours):818,018 Matches Logged (Last 24 Hours):2,394,714 Over 2million matches in the last 24hours. Is that all from hype? Or maybe the game is actually really good?
seriously. I think at one point Sony fandom results in loss of sanity. Like they have this track running in their head that says, "OMG. Sony 4ever." I mean, let's face it: MGS4, possibly their biggest exclusive of this generation, sold 200K PS3S according to NPD. Halo 3 beat Halo 2 in sales. What happens when Halo 4 drops like a megaton? It's all over for Sony nation. FF13 is on the 360. All they have is God of War 3 and it can't compare to Halo.
you are saying the same thing the fanboys said when halo 3 released, the ps3 is still around and going stronger.
You pulled those numbers out of your ass.
All you have to do to see those numbers is go to Bungie.net
As an X360 fanboy, the thought of FF13 exclusively on the PS3 scared me. FF is like Mario, Halo, and Zelda. It's a phenomenon. I really thought it would end up an equalizer in the console war if it was exclusive to the PS3. I thought X360 would have to invent one more major AAA exclusive to pull it out. However, with news that FF13 is multiplatform.... I can confidently declare: Wii - Gold Xbox 360 - Silver PS3 - Bronze
I hope someone brought tissues because come morning when all the young children get up the "i have never played halo but i know it sucks cause cartoon gfx is teh suxor" tears are going to be in full effect. I DONT CARE HOW MUCH YOU DONT LIKE HALO OBVIOUSLY MANY OF US DO SO EFF OFFF. KZ2 Sell as much as halo LOL. Most of us will be to busy playing gears 2 and resistance 2 to even care enough to buy it day 1. If anything in the ENTIRE sony stable has a chance to touch those numbers it would be god of war because kratos is a bad mofo and the studio that gave us kratos has made other games that are top notch. Guerilla has not anything that was amazing but they have made a few of the worst games of all time!!!!!!!!! Shellshock! Did you play shellshock? If you are going to be a fanboy at least root for the right games. Do you killzone halo haters realize that while bungie was building halo, guerilla was making rhino rampage for the gba?
all the way up to Gears 2 and Resistance 2. Resistance 2 looks like crap. that big monster looks like a blob of undefined pixels in the gameplay footage. The combat looked lame. gears 2 is not even in the same category as resistance 2. the only reason people compare them is because they have a similiar release schedule and they're exclusive to two different consoles. gears 2 looks SO MUCH better than R2. I'm sorry. it just does. R2 is like playing in the sandbox. Gears 2 is like bulldozing the sandbox and building a beach.
1 for PS3, 2 for 360 and 3 for Wii. 6 for mix consoles, of those 3 for 360+PS3 Seems like wind is blowing towards multi-platform release. Given this, it seems like the console makers are doing a lot more to distinguish themselves with software and hardware innovation than in previous generation (rather than simply relying on exclusives). 360 with avatar + Live + Netflix PS3 with PSTV + rumble + Bluray + price decreases Wii with motion++ + fit-like accessories More competition means better products for us consumers. Getting on my Wii rant... I don't see any future additions to this list from Wii. Seriously, I have all three of the Wii games on the list. Am I going to buy release 2 of those items? Absolutely not. I predict that this is the turning point for software sales for the Wii. Hardware-wise, it'll maintain or become even greater but all my software $$ are going to 360. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. C2TOI, I guess they actually fooled me thrice, since I have all three :)
I see a lot of c*ck-fighting going on between PS3 and 360 boys... To the 360ers, Xbox is safe, there is no danger that 3rd party is suddenly going to stop support for Xbox so relax and enjoy the games. To the PS3ers, PS3 is safe, there is no danger that 3rd party is suddenly going to stop support for Sony so relax and enjoy the games. The real enemy is the Wii (at least for the readers in this forum). Even though the 3rd party will not stop support for Sony/MS it may definitely dumb down the games (graphics-wise, AI-wise, gameplay-wise) if they make the Wii the leading platform. So to both fanboy sides, go ahead and bash the Wii cause if they continue to sell like they're selling now, there's going to be a lot of bad games coming your way.
