After a few months, LittleBigPlanet and Resistance 2 sales are growing. Today the new statics were released, and we see that Resistance 2 hits the one million. More info and statistics after the link.
Resistance 2 hits 6 million, LittleBigPlanet hits 10,5 million. Source: Jenzo Analytics.
I dont think they would go as high as those numbers but they will sell much more copies. I´d say LBP will sell more 2 millions and R2 750.000 copies. LBP will be served with DLC through out the year. R2 will have some map packs and I dont see much more coming. I have both of those games and the action frenzy of Resistance 2 and the heart warming feeling of little big planet make a great COMBO in my gameplay habits! XD
WOW 13.13 UNTHINKABILLION! do u even know how much that is!!! I cant even think about it!
The same PS3 owners that Hate VGChartz are now going to praise their numbers when it's in their favor.
@Sheddi N4G is like a jungle, everything goes!! you don't need to be an Einstein to collect/loose bubbles.. just following a circle jerking or trolling at the speed of apophis
When you think about how far games like MotorStorm and Resistance FOM got in sales I would guess LBP to reach somewhere between 4-5 million this time next year. Resistance 2 I would guess to reach 2-3 million.
i just thought it sounded so funny :P hahaha unthinkabillion +bubbles man.
Stop acting so butthurt at every little piece of decent PS3 news. You dont have to be the first to downplay it. Then again, whose acting, your butt probably does really hurt.
Both awesome games, my second Xbox RROD on christmas when i was trying to play Left for Dead(got that game for Christmas) Does anyone know how i can Send it in for another one because im not taking Microsofts bullcrap on taking $400 dollars from me, they owe me i wanna play left for dead played it for like 2 minutes then RROD thanks!

Gears 2 sold more than both LBP and R2 combined. :)
just call 1-800-4-MY-XBOX and they will send you your coffin - which is the slang word for the standard box the RROD's go in to be sent in for warranty repair. You can also go to the website if you are outside the US or whatnot and they will email you instructions on what to do (i.e., take your HD out, make sure theres no game in it, etc) tough break having RROD on christmas. That's not even funny. A word of caution...make sure you play it for a while when you get it back. My buddy just got his back from repair and it RROD AGAIN within 48 hours while he was streaming netflix.
Gave you bubbles and the only agree. Youre so right and the people who disagreed are all retards.
Great sales.Both are really good games.I'm impressed a new IP managed to sell so well.I hope both of these games sell more,they really deserve the great sales and people need to play these great games.
grieversoul: bubbles for your wise choice of vocabulary
Both hit 1 million back in November. Why post it now when it's almost January.
lbp will sell 4 - 5 mill in its lifetime I reckon. Its the top selling PS3 game in the UK.
i thought LBP, MSPR and R2 were flops :) EDIT: I didn't know this was VGchartz.
you thought LBP and R2 were flops?! wtf kind of games do YOU find acceptable? Banjo Kazooie? crackhead
No apparently HALO and Gears of War are his only admissions for games to succeed. Yeah PS3 games don't sell, that's why MGS4 doesn't sell only on the PS3 very well. Oh wait, it does. Sorry.
OMG you people are soo stupid I was being sarcastic, can't you take a joke. I have all 3 of the mentioned games. Its just that people were saying OMG LBP didn't sell 6 billion day 1 so it was a flop. I even put a smily face to let you know I was sarcastic. You took away my bubble, can I have it back please?
Im the only one who understand your sarcasm? lol Man people are harsh! They didnt view your SMILEY face so the disagree! Man, I feel for you!
I especially like Motorstorm Pacific Rift and feel kinda sad that it's not as recognized as many other games.
People on this site are very defensive(360 PS3 fanboys alike). They jump to conclusions looking for someone to flame. Here's your bubble back, It was pretty obvious what you meant. You should have said "bu... bu... but... the flopz"
those who freaked out for this good news and reported are Lame: (14 minutes ago) Reported by: BLaZiN PRopHeT Lame: (20 minutes ago) Reported by: Agent-X Lame: (46 minutes ago) Reported by: kevco33 Other: (1 hour ago) source vg chartz Reported by: Kain81 Lame: (1 hour ago) "Source: VGChartz.com" Also, it's impossible to comprehend the english with the google translation. Reported by: Jenzo Lame: (1 hour ago) Reported by: deep Lame: (1 hour ago) Reported by: Valdass any way i knew that LBP will sell between 1.5 and 2 million copies by the years end, as for resistance 2 i didnt have any guess but 1 million is good with all those great shooters out in the market at the same time! R2 will pick up more sales with time, i think it can easily pass the 2 million mark
I don't like VGChartz because their stats aren't based on any real numbers, and I don't like Google translated news because they don't make sense. If N4G's moderators followed their own 'guidelines for posting' this wouldn't get approved.
It's fine if you don't trust vgchartz (I don't trust their numbers either) but at least be consistent and report the article as lame when it's tauting 360 consoles' or games' numbers. I look forward to seeing you report 360 related articles as "lame". Just got R2 for Christmas and so far that game is great. Don't know what the haters were talking about. It deserves at least a million in sales.
You mean the same guys who are in the Americas weekly sales thread saying how awesome 360's doing according to VGChartz.
All sites that report sales have their samples from retailers they partner with and estimate the rest. Even NPD numbers, which some take as gospel, are later proven incorrect when the numbers are finally released from the factory. Numbers from Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo are the only numbers you can really rely on because they're truly the only ones that keep track of what's going out the door to everyone. As for VGChartz, they do a good enough job to be used as a source for the BBC, Forbes, Fortune, The New York Post and the New York Times to name a few. Obviously these publications check their sources, and if they think that VGChartz is good enough to quote in their magazines, there must be something to their numbers - or they're at least as accurate as source as can be expected without the official ship numbers.
Darkride, you're absolutely right, but don't try to tell that to half of these fanboys. I tried to reference VGchartz during one discussion and was treated with arrogance and contempt, as if these idiots that dismiss sites like VGchartz know more than business and sales professionals like Forbes and The New York Times. It's fairly comical trying to have an intelligent discussion about facts when a majority of the people who post on here let their opinions take precedence. It's funny, the discussion I had was that Gears 2 would catch up to MGS4. The person I discussed this with said I was crazy. In just a couple months of being released, Gears has already passed it. My point wasn't that Gears would be better, it's just that I felt it would sell better.
Lets not kid ourselves. Whilst good figures for ordinary releases, for Ps3 biggest Christmas titles these figures are awful. I mean there really bad considering all the hype and the fact its Christmas. Why don't Ps3 owners but games? What is wrong with them? Its not that the games are garbage, there not so what is it?
they r buying game but not just ps3 exclusives only, ps3 owners r not all fanboys like 360 owners u know?? most of them r buying football game, there is so many shooter games this holidays to pick up from not just R2, LBP is new IP and is selling very good for new IP! EA,Activision,Ubisoft,T2 all reporting to have more profit from ps3 than 360!! so what does that tells u??
four big companies including EA and gta grandfathers take two have announced they made their most revenue from ps3 sales... hmmm go figure
I don't know what you mean. Look at PS3's biggest selling titles of the year - MGS4, GT5:P, LBP, Resistance 2, Motorstorm 2 and you'll see if PS3 owners are buying games. They are. They're just spread thinly over a load of games. MGS4 sold over 4 million copies. MGS4 was the biggest hit of the year for PS3 just like Gears 2 is for the 360. If you take Gears 2 out of the equation, the 360's games aren't selling too well now are they.
I guess PS3 owners don't wait in line to buy games on first day of release. I buy a game when I feel like playing it and when I have time.
So if it didn't hit 3 mil in one day its considered a flop, where the hell did the concept of gradual sales go????
Welcome to fanboy bashing. The 360 fanboys still consider Uncharted a flop. Some people will reach at anything to bash the opposition. If a game breaks the 1 million it's pretty much considered a good selling game. The only exception is if the game is on PS3. Then it's a flop. Don't worry they are quickly running out of excuses. They went from "no games" to "the games not selling". Just feel sorry for them missing out and move on.
God, there is a reason you are required to take English every year of high school.
...but obviously they forget about geography.
Do hardware and software sales matter on N4G or not? Do sales only matter when they support a particular console or game?
Sales only matter when they support a particular console. C'mon man, you know that!
LOL, I know. I just want to see if the answers change...again.
"What's with all the negative waves, Moriarty?" I've been waiting forever to use that line.:)
i thought you people said tha vgc are crap
So why worry about it?
they could state that each game sold 4 million units and i still wouldn't give a sh!t . So unlucky bro. Nobody cares about vgchartz but you guys. Its like ur fodder for pointless petty squabbles so ur welcome to use their numbers AS FACT because im not stupid enough to. 'i thought you people said that vgc are crap' who said they weren't???? look at the report history.. We dont care
These figures are stagnant...These were supposed to be the PS3 blockbuster hits. I even own more Blu-ray movies than PS3 games. Sad.
Well, that's strange. From your past comments, you don't seem someone who's interested in Blu-ray. Anyway, hope you'll find more use for your ps3 investment. I have been happily using it as my entertainment centre, and hope you can find something more to do with it other than bashing (which is quite sad by the way, but to each his own)
Also, there are thousands and thousands of blu-ray movies out. Blu-ray movies are released by the bucketloads each week. Video games aren't releases quite as much. What are you smoking, man? I own three blu-rays: The Dark Knight, Cloverfield, and Wall-E. I own 10 PS3 games.
yep everybody buys the all mighty ps3rd exclusives
Halo 3 nears 9 million, Gears 2 surpasses 3 million, Fable II hits 2 million tl;dr - Xbox 360 wins as usual.
you really have a PS3? I find that hard to believe with a name like that.
Meh 22 PS3 games 12 blu-ray movies (and 4 Xbox360 games)
You comment make you look like a tool. I own about 38-39 ps3 games, 4 xbox360 games and about 20 blu-ray movies. There is ALLOT of games to PS3. But you are to busy to bash the ps3. Do you even own a ps3?...
BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HA HA HA HA!
13 bluray movies 4 ps3 games 18 x360 game
This is PROOF that the PS3 is mainly purchased as a Blu Ray player,games machine second. These sales for the 2 biggest PS3 games this year(R2 /LBP) in comparison to the 360s Gears2 nand Fable 2 sales proves this beyond a reasonable doubt! My how the mighty have fallen,BWhahahahahahahahahahah ahah. UP YER @SS PLAYSTATION NATION, pathetic
Actually, MGS4 was the biggest this year. It has sold nearly 4 million copies. The PS3 is purchased mainly as an all-in-one device. Blu-ray players can be purchased at 200 dollars. At 400, the PS3 is twice as much. Why spend the extra money? Play LittleBigPlanet. You will understand, my friend.
How long did it take MGS? to reach that number,huh? Bwahahahahahahah! I did play LBP,and my friend, you are a [email protected] What a wimpy game. Nuff said. Watch how much Gears2 will have sold when it reaches the same time out as MGS4.
With the bundles, MGS4 has sold more than 4.3 million copies.
6 PS3 games 5 Blu-rays 0 PSN games 82 XBOX 360 games 46 XBLA games 12 HD-DVDs
when gears 2 reach 1 mil it's all over n4g but for ps3 games it get reported and they say it's lame
so true, hopefully they have a new years resolution to stop being an insane fanboy
The difference is that Gears 2 could back it up with real sales numbers from pre-orders, not made up estimates from VGChartz. 2 million in one day.
Yeah, estimates kinda do suck. I wish the respective companies would just release some numbers so we know how their games are doing. Microsoft loves to throw out numbers about their exclusives, but Sony doesn't seem to at all.
VG Chartz sucks but anyone with a brain could see these sales would keep on growing.
PS3 makes publishers more money. Cause quality games and working hardware win.
I got both. Both were pleasant surprises :)
