Retailers report brisk Fable 2 sales, pointing toward massive first week sales. Fable 2 is now poised to break the 1,000,000 unit mark on opening week, worldwide.
Not bad at all. My only complaint its vgcharts
While I (generally) agree, VGchartz is useful when other information isnt available. Its not worthwhile to argue that vgchartz numbers have more authority than NDP or MediaChart, but without other information, its worthwhile to discuss. That said, I dont think *anyone* expects anything less than stellar sales from Fable II. Its very highly anticipated, breaks a lot of new ground in the genre, looks fabulous, has great online-play and has been getting STELLAR reviews. No one doubts that it will be a massive seller.
Ofcourse the game will sell good but not 350k on opening day I still believe the game will do 1m worldwide in its launch month But thats about it since it is not an AAA -89% at metacritic @mega Fable 2 is AA but not an AAA http://www.metacritic.com/g... However the game will sell 500k max worldwide at launch and 1m -1.5m lifetime
btw its a 9.0 score not 8.9 and it only so low cause of bitter sony fanboys. Hey if the can use the excuse for lil big crap why not use it for 360 games too
Fable 2 is AA but not an AAA http://www.metacritic.com/g... the game will sell a max of 500k units worldwide at launch 1m-1.5m lifetime @person below Ratchet is 89% at meta too. But lets face it . 89% is not AAA. Uncharted is 88% too All those games are AA but not AAA LBP is an AAA game --95% at metacritic
It actually is at 89 right now, and that is based on official reviews not user-set scores which is the issue with lbp. @Elshimiwhatever 0.1p or 1% to differentiate triple a's from the rest? That is incredibly silly and you are nothing but a delusional kiddie fanboy. Fable 2 is an aaa game, I don't find it interesting at all, and you won't let yourself be interested in it because you're afraid Sony might give you a call and threaten to kill your family, but that doesn't change the fact that it is a great game. EDIT: I consider both the games you apparently claim are not aaa as such as well, 0.1-0.2p or 1-2% is not an accurate dividing line between "good" games and "average" games. This Metacritic obsession is ridiculous considering how un-objective and unprofessional reviews are.
Lool @ Megaton. Fable 2 is at 89% on Meta and those are OFFICIAL reviews, not user. Nice try though. :) Where are your AAA games this year? You 360 fanatics used Metacritic a lot last year but where is it this year? Nothing to show us? Oh wait that's right, Microsoft is focusing on bringing mediocre JRPG's to Americans. I almost forgot, my bad.
This has nothing to do with anything, but how the hell did mr elshimietc go from 6 bubbles to ONE in 5 minutes? Or is there something wrong with the page or something?
I sure am glad that people are helping to get rid of nasim's little accounts. No one wants that person on this site. I don't mind if you prefer one console to another, but he is ridiculous! What is this, his 15th account? Thank you everyone for helping get rid of another one of his accounts. Awwwww :( looks like nasim signed into all of his accounts go give him bubbles.....what a sad little kid.
Most likely these sales are Fable 1 fanboys that have been waiting for the game for years. If you've never played Fable before and you're thinking of getting this game, think twice, cos it's a Love it or Hate it kinda game. I expect 1-2million worldwide sales, mostly in US, don't think it will do as well in Japan.
Well last I had check Fable 2 was still 90 not 89 so yea I was wrong. Like I said bitter ps3 fanboys are bringing the score down. Oh and just cause its an "offical" review doesnt mean it isnt writen by some bitter ps3 fanboy its not like they dont have sites and dont write reviews. In fact isnt their a site call psfanboy or something like that ? Plus Fable 2 reviewers are from an incomplete game. They didnt have the co op working till the day the game came out. If it had of had co op for the reviews it easily have a score of 95 even with all the bitter ps3 fanboys.
"and 1m -1.5m lifetime" Are you kidding me!? Lol. That's funny.
Any reviewer that gave Fable 2 below a 9, is a bold faced liar or they didn't do anything but the main quest. If you haven't played the game long enough to notice that the seasons change, then you haven't been playing long enough. Either way, they are wrong, Fable 2 is 9.5-10 material.
I guess Fable 2 is now AAA since it just hit 90 at metacritic. http://www.metacritic.com/g...
1UP - Rated: 100 out of 100. "Fable 2 is filled with more great ideas than the last 10 years of "Final Fantasy" combined." Put that in your AAA pipe and smoke it. Don't be jealous, just buy the arcade so you can play it and the non gimped Fallout 3 and Far Cry 2.
Ahem.. vg chartz.... good numbers if true but this is vgchartz not NPD or ChartGFK.
i was expecting the game to sell good but even as a fable fan, i wasnt expecting it to sell that well. >.> good to know theres alot of people who want to play this AAA title(AAA acording to xplay, the only review that matters to me.) -nai- (hmm sony fanboys cant say much about the game at the moment, it has a 9.0 average thus making it a AAA acording to there rules. XD)
Plus these are Vgcrap numbers which are Fake wait for NPD numbers Fable 2 -89% at meta http://www.metacritic.com/g... so AA but not AAA . plus these are Fake numbers
What do you think will happen? Xbox fans are craving exclusives - They have no good ones.
http://www.n4g.com/Xbox360/... according to N4G all sites together gives a average 9/10 so it is AAA, >.> nice try though. -nai-
ive been getting PM from elshimiablo saying that this game is not a AAA because N4G doesnt count, because its based on user reviews. as we all know Little big planet has gotten some really bad user reviews. so if this was true it wouldn't have a 97 would it. >.> so again his point is wrong. i dont see why hes trying so hard to prove that its not a AAA titles when its proven right in the link i submited earlier that N4G gives it the score to suit it. -nai- (edit) (odd i could have sworn that i put this in my edit post.) (elshimiablo has gotten really mad at me XD hes starting to call me a Xbot in his PM's.)
he is a sad little kid. Now that he is down to one bubble, you will never see that account again. He will just start a new account later today. Then we will all have to go through the trouble of taking another one of his accounts away. This kid has been banned from almost every other website around. Now he just sits on here all day. Just to show you how lame he is, go to his account. He signed up barely 3 days ago and already has over 140 posts. He tries to act like he is new for about 5 minutes, then he goes and passes the contributor test and tried to block all submissions he doesn't like.
one last post for me, XD elshimiablo keeps telling me that since the game got a 89% on meta its a AA title and the its a BAD game, meaning it sucks >.> is it just me or is it just me or is he lossing more credibility XD. -Nai- OMFG someone just threw a whole bunch of candy bars at me, im not j/king either. -nai- -edit- true it would seem that way XD -nai- (THIS JUST IN elshimiablo says Xplay doesnt count for a score.) -nai-
He never had credibility!
||it is a shame the game is not AAAA||
Since you made a negative comment, and you ABS value'd it, You said it IS AAAA right??
SONY DROIDS, SONY DROIDS, WHERE ART THOU SONY DROIDS
Plus the game flopped not AAA at metacritic These are Vgchartz numbers wait for NPD
@ elshimiablo How the hell you got that many bubbles? So going by your logic almost every PS3 exclusive is a flop.
We are busy with LBP, R2 beta and Socom. You guys talk about PSN online, how about Fable Coop- LOLZERS.
Lol @ GMR. How many 360 EXCLUSIVES (exclusive of course means that they are ONLY available on that platform) are ABOVE 90% on Meta? Mass Effect = Also available on PC = Multi-platform. BioShock = Also available on PC and PS3 = Multi-platform. Gears of War = Also available on PC = Multi-platform. That leaves one. Halo 3. PS3 already has two. MGS4 (94%) and LBP (95%). And to think the Xbreak Plzfixme launched all the way back in 2005. :)
@ ^^^ I see you are using all you accounts today. You see I wasn't saying 360 had more exclusives, i was saying that going by your logic almost every PS3 exclusive is a flop. Let me know if you can't understand this time what i'm saying, so i can explain it to you a little more.
Just cause you wanted fable 2 to flop doesnt mean it did moron. fable 2 is already a hit. just accept it stop crying droid
Mass Effect = NOT on the ps3 Gears of War = NOT on the ps3 Forza Motorsports 2 = NOT on the ps3 Halo 3 = NOT on the ps3 Braid = NOT on the ps3 Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 = NOT on the ps3
It may have sold half that, but even with half that's still pretty good. I'm playing the game now and loving it.
around 500k Worldwide first week is reasonable But no way will it reach 1m . come on this game isnt big in europe
:O 1 million first week? even thou its VGchartz LOL ..if true.. fukin impressive!! "and is poised to be the fastest selling Western console RPG" Amazing game! well deserved!
Ya this game is hot and the sales will represent it. Im eager to play a little bit of the original fable again
so obviously false the game will sell 500k Wordlwide at best for First week with 400k coming from US
AAA huh? http://www.metacritic.com/g... Only 3 10's and they're all from 360 fanboy websites. Here's LBP. 8 10's and lots are missing. http://www.metacritic.com/g... Here's MGS4. 29 10's. http://www.metacritic.com/g... Where are your AAA games this year? They're all multi-platform LOL!
Do you consider Ratchet & Clank Future: TOD a AAA title for the ps3? How about Uncharted: Drake's Fortune?
Have you tried coop? lol
Co-op? The characters fly and get stuck on top of fences. Great job Lionhead! Brilliant!
@ rick SPIN!
@ Rick http://www.n4g.com/Xbox360/... 72 Reviews | Average Score: 9.0 There's a full list with over 70+ reviews compared to 39 on metacritic You can spin it all you want just because the reviews are not listed there..it means the game is a flop 72 Reviews | Average Score: 9.0 <-- deal with it ...stop being such a trolling inmature [email protected] for 1 second does it hurt you so bad that this game is good? its just a fukin game..if people like the game ..then let them have fun ..and go play whatever the fuk it is that you like playing..
I love this game..
me too!! this game is crack "As it is, it's still the best RPG on the 360. It's a series worth evolving and expanding (can you imagine a Fable set in London around the time of Jack the Ripper -- boss material! -- where you play Jekyll or Hyde -- morality! -- cuz I can!). Fable 2 is filled with more great ideas than the last 10 years of Final Fantasy combined." - 1UP Review :O
good for fable
Good to see Fable 2 doing this good. I'm loving the game, is highly addictive. Congrats to MS & Lionhead Studios.
Let's wait for NPD please. I have no doubt this game sold a lot but can we wait for official numbers and not VGCRAP.
I'm a sony guy but I won't deny a good game its due, rock on
No doubt this game sold a lot but are we really listening to VGCRAP? VGChartz should be wiped off the planet. Don't visit the link and let this pathetic site DIE.
I imagine only gears and little big planet will top it, maybe fallout 3 as well since its multiplat.
I dont believe LBP will outsell Fable II. Why? LBP has a more limited audience; being a less familiar / attractive genre (platformer). PS3's install base is vastly smaller, and the PS3 owner doesnt by nearly as many games. I'd wager LBP will sell 500-700k lifetime. And, if you have a trouble with that, compare against R&C: ToD, its lifetime is only 1.3M and it is a vastly better known title.
I wouldn't bet against Little Big Planet being a big hit.
One its a new IP...and another its a platformer....look at super mario galaxy sales in North America...and that game was a sequel.
im wagering the game will sell atleast 2 million.
easily it will outsell Fable 2 in WW sales same goes to Motorstorm :Pacific Rift . The game is huge in europe
@ CherryPie LBP will sell WAY more than 500,000-700,000 lifetime... I think that LBP will sell at least 500,000 units in a month in the United States alone. Yes, Rachet is a more well known platformer, but LBP isn't just another platformer, you can create your own levels and share them. The possibilities with LBP are just almost endless. LBP for the PS3 is like the PS3's own version of SPORE or something. Also, Rachet and Clank didn't have any Online and not many people buy games that are just Single Player only ( I do) and LBP's Online capabilities in combination with the creation aspect will push the sales WAY past that of Rachet and Clank Future. I don't think that LBP will sell more than Fable 2, but I do think that LBP will go on to sell over 2-3 million copies lifetime. I don't know how much Fable 1 sold, but I think that Fable 2 will probably sell about 3-4 million lifetime or about the same as Fable 1 on the Original Xbox.
Omega, you could've just waited for official first week sales reported by you know.....IGN or something. What if it's drastically less or may even be more? Vgchartz is about as reliable as a 360 in a 90 degree room. (joking)
Hopefully VGcharts is right. It would be really great and maybe developers will start making more Mature RPGs. Fable, Mass Effect, Fallout, Mass Effect and M rated RPGs FTW!
Fable 2 on its own will sell more than all the PS3s winter releses put together.
Flopable has 89% at meta so not AAA plus these are Vgcrap numbers wait for NPD
people here are stoked for fable 2 and it was made in the uk , all the gamers here are excited for this game , nobody cares for little big planet cause its lame fable 2 FTW so stop with your trolling bullsh!t and face it 360 owns ps3
who gives a sh#t whether a game is a AAA title?
The answer to your question would be, Nasim and all his accounts.
Nazi'm is just pissed he's left with LBPooh and Constipation 2! loool No gears or fable for him :(
someones alittle ahead of them selves, 4cough just give it up, no matter how u look at it GeoW2,LBP,R2,Fable2 are all gonna be great games, i feel sorry for some of you
Im obviously Pro Sony but Fable 2 would be a game i would like to play but i dont really want to fork out £££s just to play 1 game (i know Xbox hav a massive game catalog) Not to far into th distant future ill be able to buy a 360 for like 40quid second hand so then maybe a good time Good for them...
