Call Of Duty: World At War has made it three weeks at the top of the PS3 chart, with Resistance 2 going straight in at number two.
In the PS3 chart... but it's still 6th in the All format chart, which is nothing to be sneezed at since there was distribution problems.
6th? Where do you get your numbers from? More like 10th. http://www.n4g.com/industry...
From the actual charts: http://www.chart-track.co.u...
These are for the same time but they have it at number 10. Weird. http://chartget.blogspot.co... I think the one you provided does not include PC games.
There's two charts, one is All formats (which combines all the same games into one entry - Call of Duty World of War is one entry, for example), on the one I linked to, it breaks it down by format, (so there's one entry for each console for CoD).
Because America isn't the only place on the planet
and England ain't the only country in Europe
And yet UK charts are looking more and more like if it were the US charts ...except for PES/Fifa obviously Luckily Europe is not all made by US wannabes ( UK ) Go Manchester!
even with the distribution problem??? WOW i wonder what will it be if there was no distribution problem!! i bet it would have been at number 1 or 2 in all formats in UK!
Never said it was :-) I was just answering chaosatoms question
Yeah i know, its allright :p i was just reminding people that we still havent seen the charts for the rest of europe
Sad to see multiplat shooters and need for speed CMXVIII chart higher than the systems exclusives =( Poor pacific rift, we barely knew thee.
@1.7 England isn't the only country in the UK. @1.8 "Luckily Europe is not all made by US wannabes ( UK ) Go Manchester! " If you think we all want to be american then you're very, very much mistaken.
FAIL..................Where is it in the all formats, haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Damn bro..another new account? First it was 4cough then it was Petay pan now this? Get a life?
What's the matter ? You're butt's hurts ?
So much for LOL RESISTANCE 2 is a flop.. You guys have to keep in mind that Sony and MS have 2 totally different goals. Sony rather have several 1st party exclusives of different genres that sell millions across all of them while MS believes in putting all their eggs in one basket and only having one or two heavy hitting exclusives like Halo 3 or Gears 2. If you added up total sales for ALL of sony's 1st party games against total sales of ALL 360's 1st party games, you would actually see PS3 has overall sold more 1st party exclusives then 360 has.. Uncharted has sold 2.2 million, Resistance 3.5 million, Motorstorm 2.6 million, Heavenly Sword 1.2 million, MGS4 3.5 million, LittleBigPlanet is at 800,000 now and Gran Turismo 5 prologue has sold 3.2 million worldwide. With 360 you have Gears 1 which sold 4 million, Halo 3 sold 6, Gears 2 sold 3.5 million and Fable 2 sold 1.5 million. So if you actually crunch the numbers both MS and Sony are doing fine, im glad sony doesnt just rely on 1 or 2 franchises to make them big bucks like MS does with Gears and Halo.. Sony believes in having quantity of quality
amen i say!
I dont think its fair to include MGS4 when Sony didnt publish the game also why didnt you include Forza 2 and Viva Pinata, 4ml and 1.5ml respectively (bundles can work wonder for game sales eh) Sony = 2 platformer, 2 racers, 1 FPS, 1 Hack/slash and 1 Stealth MS = 2 TPS, 1 FPS, 1 racer, 1 RPG, 1 garden sim Seems like both have variety but even with less games MS manages to sell more of them As for R2 debuting at 2 that pretty bad when you consider its Sonys main shooter franchise (after Killzone) and it couldnt even outsell a 3 week old multiplatform game that poor no matter how you try and spin it
Omega, give yourself a bubble. You are so smart!
HEY Omega, Are u talking about COD5 pawing Gears 2 after the first or second week. lol.
you call 50% thats 3 out of 6 games that sells are shooters VARIETY? you sure you know what that word supposed to mean?
Hey look...it's Omega with her inaccurate observations and anti Sony propaganda again...How do you manage to keep those bubbles?
MS has an attach rate of approx 7 or 8. You have to figure 5 of those games are Halo 3, COD4, GTA4, Gears and Gears 2. Other than that, 360 owners turn their noses up at everything else. Just look at sales of TombRaider Underworld, Banjo Kazooie, Too Human, Lost Ody or Blue Dragon. LBP sold over a million copies in a month, and it's a platformer. Has Banjo even done 100,000? I think the long term issue is that, despite there being more than FPS's on the 360, FPS's are the only games 360 owners seem to want. If you're a developer with a platformer, or just looking to try something new - do you develop for the 360 or for the PS3 or Wii?
actually i though MGS4 was at like 4.5 mil or something like that. At least thats what was post last week.
I guess real ps3 owners (real people not msg board superfans) realized resistance isn't a AAA shooter franchise Sony has a LOT of work to do if they want to have their own Halo or Gears
MGS4 was better than a Halo or Gears game.. IMO EDIT: much better.
That's really all that matters. I enjoy them more than Gears or Halo (though Halo 3's MP is a lot of fun). Sony's work is just fine thus far.
happyface - 2 hours ago PM Track Ignore 3 - I guess real ps3 owners (real people not msg board superfans) realized resistance isn't a AAA shooter franchise Sony has a LOT of work to do if they want to have their own Halo or Gears ---------------------------- Not in Europe they won't son. The VERY OVERhyped Halo 3 wasn't only outsold by every iteration of the GT and GTS 3 series, but also Eyetoy Play, Getaway, MGS 2 & 3, Tekken Tag Tournament, FFX, many of the NFS/LotR/ Fifa/ PES series, MoH:Frontline/Rising Sun, 007 James Bond Nightfire, Crash Bandicoot Wrathe of Cortex, Simpsons Hit & Run, to name but a few PS2 titles. Hell even Sonic Heroes outsold Halo here and equaled Halo 2 sales. RFoM was a LAUNCH title for the PS3 and has sold 1.85 units to date, http://vgchartz.com/worldto... Gears was released 12 months after the XB360 launched.. http://vgchartz.com/worldto... and sold 1.85 million units to date exactly the same. CoD4.. http://vgchartz.com/worldto... Sold 1.86 million on the XB360 beating Gears, but only 1.73 million on the PS3 so sold less than RFoM. Halo http://vgchartz.com/worldto... Sold 1.42 million, Halo 2 1.68 million and Halo 3 2.28 million here. So Resistance equaled Gears sales, outsold Halo 1 and 2, the only record MS has left in Europe is Halo 3, the again Halo3 was released 22 months after the XB360s launch and is 37 months old [Dec 05 - Dec 08].. The PS3 is 21 months old [Mar 07 - Dec 08]. So the PS3 already HAD it's Halo killer in Europe at least, you just weren't paying attention! Not bad for a LAUNCH title eh? lol BTW R2 was only released here on the 28th of Nov those charts were up to the w/e 29th Nov.
Are you off your meds? R2 is an extraordinary game.
Is the wool sock thing from LBP called Kratos or what?
I think its called a "Sack Boy" its for the ps3 owner that likes to play with dolls
i think its called "Avatars" its for 360 owners who like to play with dolls
Avatars have boobs too.
We are talking about system sellers,, not washed up, last gen games.
I'm still hooked on CoD4... damn you Infinity Ward!
Why so chart obsessed? R2 will do fine in the long-run. COD5 is doing well on the success of COD4 as COD3 did alright sales wise on the success of COD2.
Time for Sony to pack in R2 like they did with RFOM in EU so they can "pad" the numbers a bit and claim success.
Where's your proof?
Crabby, you can be SO smart... why post such bitter stuff?
Yeah call it padding or enticement. I know when I buy a system a killer game in the box is always incentive to buy that bundle.
Padding is done by most companies worldwide to create figures that keep consumers, and bigwigs happy. Its sort of how Microsoft persists on including re-purchased/replaced 360 sales in its overall hardware sales numbers. These being due to RRoD, and other 360 malfunctions and/or because of piracy and live lock outs. I dont care how they get there numbers but lets not try and point out Sony, when both Microsoft and Ninty do it aswell (Wii Sports anyone?! ;))
...AND THEY SAY THE PS3 DOESN'T SELL GAMES. Booya!
Um.... this is a PS3 chart, of course the games on it have sold, they're not going to leave it blank. This isn't all formats. Booya!
lol ... of course it sell games! because this is a ps3 only games charts !! haha
BOOOOYA! God, I know this isn't the whole chart, LOL! 360 fanboys claimed R2 was a flop in sales and it clearly isn't. Idiots.
Owned, like a Ford Escort
"God, I know this isn't the whole chart, LOL! 360 fanboys claimed R2 was a flop in sales and it clearly isn't." Well...every game on that chart sold about 1000 copies on the PS3. So...even though R2 is in second place, it still flopped. Clearly.
And you're a floppage to society. Grow up dude. A game is not a flop unless it's a bad game.
That's not true... PS3 games can flop just because... Well, mostly it's because they are all terrible, but sometimes just because...
I love my ps3,to me it's the best system which is why I sold my 360.That being said,I don't think sony will win the console "war" and I couldn't care less,I don't care if MS outsells sony 20 to 1,I still think it has the best games/value on the market,so shove your sales numbers up your asses
People Love That COD.. They are hooked... Me I love me some RFOM2!!! I just don`t like the weapons in WAW- Now the COD4 weapons where nice-
Yeah I am also more of a sci-fi nut, R2 is the best FPS I've played, other than Killzone 2 of course
I don't see COD WAW been talked about much as cod 4
Man, imagine having a game like Resistance 2 as part of a bundle when you get a ps3. That would be Epic!
Worked for Wii Sports. 30mil.
the xbots 360 isn't doing it for him
A decent shooter makes its way into more homes than a mediocre shooter? What a surprise...... Wait, wasnt R2 suppose to sell more than GeoW2????
pfft! You know, darn analysts. Get a real job. :) I don't know, but RFOM/R2 is good enough to me. I enjoyed it.
I remember that, it was supposed to "destroy" Gears 2, it can't even destroy games on it's own system.
Congrats to Insomniac Games for producing yet another AWESOME game for the PS3. :)
congrats Insomniac, ps3 owners would rather buy a poor multiplat game than your exclusive you gave to just them I bet Insomniac is thrilled
PS3 owners are buying both WAW and R2, but then again, we could easily say Congrats Epic, Gamers would rather buy a poor multiplat than a game you made exclusive for the 360 just for them. Epic must be thrilled to know they were outsold by a POOR multiplat. Please get back on your meds and come back into reality.
the fact that, as surprising as it might be to us, some if not most of the PS3 owners don't read these news sites/forum and live the hype as we do. They go to Future Shop/best Buy/Wally World/etc... and just don't know what Resistance is... On the other hand, COD has had a name for quite some years, so when a guy goes to buy a game ,he will usually go for a brand he heard of before... No need to stress by comparing sales numbers... I won't say it enough... the goal is not to sell more that the other guy... It's to sell enough to be profitable and have a satisfactory fan base !
Fable 2 outsold R2 and LBP combined. That's how a big game is supposed to sell. But I'm willing to bet that about 70% of ps3 owners don't care about the games and only the bluray player.
I personally do not care for sales. I believe that even if a game does not sell well, it does not mean it is not "big". Resistance 2 and Little Big Planet may have not sold more than Fallout 3, but that doesnt change the fact that all three of those games are amazing.
I agree with everything you said. My only concern is that Sony need to up there marketing campaign on there big exclusives. Advertising is what brings games to the attention of most console gamers. Not everyone hangs around sites like N4G, IGN, Eurogamer... etc. Advertising is something Microsoft have got down to a tee, and have it in bucket loads they do. Even Nintendo have plenty of advertising for there 1st party developed titles, and a few of there 2nd/3rd party exclusives. Games such as CoD:WaW are marketed by there publishers as are most games, but as they are multiplat and already have a successful fanbase they are bound to do better in sales even with little to no advertising at all. Basically factors such as marketing, time of year (Christmas for those of u like me who dont even no what day it is, lol), the mass of games released the past few months etc, are all affecting the sales numbers of these games. Sony needs to buck up if they want there games noticed.
