Just how many pre-orders has Killzone 2 received in North America? SCEA isn't saying.
I went on the usa store last night and cannot find the KZ2 demo. Is it out. If so, where the hell is it. I'm from uk, and have it already, but just thought i'd have a look. Strange.
usa dont have the demo on the store.
The US store wont get it till the thursday before Killzone 2 gets out. Europe got thier demo early(gratz). This was done because they made some sort of evil deal with gamestop for the demo = preorder. Eitherway, i cant wait for the game.
Hit agree if they have yours. Hit disagree if they don't but you plan on picking the game up.
3600 Gamestop stores in NA. Approx. 30-40 pre-orders of Killzone 2 in my district per store. So we're looking at approx 108,000 KZ2 pre-orders at Gamestop alone in NA. lookin' good :]
they must be ashamed at the numbers is less than EU as it is every year /sarcasm.
Actually that must be true. PS3 sells more software in Europe. And is selling more hardware...
Is it technically possible to have pre-order sales figures? (it's not rhetoric)
yes,I pre-ordered of amazon but payed it off at the same time,so I think that counts towards pre order sales,but I should just count as sales. If the EU and not Pal has over a million,I'd guess the USA has the same if not more,thats decent first weekend sales they'll have,it has the potential to do 3 million in a month,especally if people who don't have a PS3 see there mates playing it.All my younger brothers mates are going nut's just because I got the demo,kids eh.
WOW!!! Even Mums are buying it!!! ;-D
Bubbles, my friend.
They don't provide it, they don't provide. You can speculate all you want, doesn't matter. This is the least of PS3's concerns. They need to drop out. I'm still waiting, hopefully in a few more months.
hey kid, just abort yourself. ALSO... quit acting like your BOX still works and go fix it already.
Well, Mr. Bust and your little friend Mr. Pimp, ...I hate to come across as a fanboi; however, you are going to be waiting for a long time. Guess that gives you two children time to get your broken Box back (again). Are you two adolescent idiots truly that stupid? To see some of the rants of people like you children just amazes me. Do you have so much free time in between getting your Boxes fixed that you must bash the competition with inaccurate posts. I am happy for you that you are happy with your "short term" purchase/investment in the 360 as was I when I bought two when they launched (and by the way... luckily, I have never had the red ring problem). However, I am much more satisfied with my purchase of the more Long-Term console. I, like most other adults..., grew up. Sony and the PS brand are here to stay. If you are so concerned about losses, I would turn your eyes to your own "fav" company. There are some enormous lawsuits overseas that are going to take a huge toll on MS and their profit margin. Now you two go to bed... you have school tomorrow. I on the other hand will play some Gears and then some KZ2 Demo madness. At Jager below.... excellent points.
I personally doubt the game will sell as much as people think it will. MGS4 took several months to reach just a million in North America. KillZone 2 being an FPS, I'm sure it'll reach that figure sooner. But people are being very adventurous if they're predicting some huge numbers for the March NPD
I'd expect at least a million pre-orders in the us,add Canada,South America,Down Under,Asia when it gets there it should do MGS4 numbers,don't forget it will have EU bundles,it will also go platinum around Christmas 09,that will give a sales spike with and will fall nicely into Ps3 price cut bundle with LBP or uncharted 2.
I see huge sales, but they won't be represented NPD because they'll come mainly from European territories.
the reason why sony doesn't provide pre-orders stats for NA. is because NPD would show a diffrent number once they reveal their sales numbers the following month. EU doesn't have a NPD that gives clear numbers of sales.
If U recall it was bundled and npd didnt include those
I hate to disagree with you Meus on this one because I have come to like most of your logic in your posts. I think this will sell much better than you think. I would tend to believe the numbers Sony and GG gives us for total games sold instead of NPD. NPD is fairly accurate, but they don't include everything. This is a huge game and the preorder numbers overseas that were released says it all. Might not hit as high as we think... but a million is a safe bet in the first two- three weeks. I would be interested in just seeing the launch day number sells.
around 2 million copies worldwide tops, and that's about it. PS3 will sell less than XBOX 360 in February, and March, and every other month of the year, and every year. It's over Sony, drop out please. It's over. You'll losing money and market share, and no game is gonna help. If you want Killzone 2 to sell, bring it to XBOX 360, that's the console people who want games have and buy. People just don't want your $400 home theater center with your fake disc format. People want games!! Please drop out and start making profit by developing games for XBOX 360. It's over, it's over!! Understand that.
I never thought 2 million copies sold was a bad thing. But hey if YOU say so, it must be true.... PS: I think (just my opinion, I'm not a sales marketing scientist)that it will sell minimum 2 million copies. The european preorders are at 1.1 million, for north america I would say about 1 million or a bit less. And I'm only talking of preorders here. Some people never preorder games (for me this is the first time I've ever preordered a game, I usually bought it day one, or the week or two after the game was released). So I would say that the game could sell between 2 million and 3 million copies in its first two weeks.
All I know for sure, is that it won't sell enough. And Sony will continue to lose $$$ That's all I know for sure. It's over for PS3.
we don't want that crap on the 360, we already know that it won't sell well. "It's over for the PS3" That is a very true statement.
Really? you mean like how the 360 outsold the PS3 in 2007 and 2008? Wait... You obviously cant think long term can you? Do you even understand what Sony is Doing with the PS3? They didnt need it to be anther PS2. the PS3 is, in short, a trojan horse for several technologies. Blu-Ray, XDR, Cell... Come next gen consoles, Sony will have COMPLETE control over these technologies, and Microsoft will be stuck using GDDR5, an exsisting Intel or AMD Chip, and DVD. The Whole goal of the PS3 is amazingly simple, get these technologies out, make them successful, and give sony control over them. Sony never needed the PS3 to be the new PS2. And just a few facts: Fact: December 2006, Xbox 360 reaches 10 mil consoles sold. http://www.microsoft.com/pr... Fact: PS3 reaches 10 million mark FOUR months FASTER than the 360. http://rajivvyas.blogspot.c... Fact: That so called increase lead the 360 has been getting (As Xbox fanboys like to claim) Has actually been decreasing. The 360's original lead was 10 million units, the lead is now 6.8 million units. Fact: PS3 outsold the 360 in 2007. http://www.roughlydrafted.c... http://www.afterdawn.com/ne... Fact: PS3 outsold the 360 in 2008. PS3 sales: 10.7 million 360 sales: 10.1 million Not going to bother getting the article for this for this news just came out barely a month ago, so you sould all remember it. In short, the PS3 has been outselling the 360, has completed sony's goal of getting 3 new technologies onto the market, and gives sony control / monopoly over these 3 technologies for NEXT generation of consoles as well. You cant spin facts, and these are the facts.
''drop out''? What a joke. Maybe the 360 should be dropped. It's selling slower and has the RROD. /sarcasm. The 360 is awesome, even if trolls like you have to go and associate with it.
jager just raped you
dont get me wrong, im not saying the 360 is bad, im just getting sick and tired of these trolls, so ill just put Facts like this to destroy their trolling posts. Both the 360 and PS3 are great machines, both with pros and cons, both with great games. The only difference is that Microsoft focused on short term goals, Sony has been, as with every Generation, focused on Longterm goals. Look at the PS1, Sony decided to use a new format, that was cheaper than existing cartigdes, this helped the PS1. Look at the PS2, Sony decided to go with DVD, so the PS2 could ride out on DVDs success (And helped DVD become successful mind you). Now comes this generation of consoles, EVERYONE was expecting a new PS2 like sales, when in reality that was never Sony's plan. the PS3 is, in short, Sony's way to make certain that with next Generation, they will have complete advantage over Microsoft. Next Gen consoles, MS is either forced with 3 choices: Blu-Ray Choice: A. Countinue with DVD, while the PS4 has a 5x-10x Blu-Ray drive using the 100GB - 400GB Blu-Ray discs. Sony has Advantage. B. Go into R&D of a new HD Disc format, costing Microsoft time and money. Sony has Advantage, cause Blu-Ray already controls HD Disc market now. C. Adopt Blu-Ray for Next Gen Xbox. Sony Profits. Cell: A. Using existing CPU from AMD or Intel. Sony has Advantage with a PS4 with 2 45mm Cells, or a single, Cell 2 processor. B. R&D with a new CPU for the Next Xbox, costing time and money for Microsoft. C. Adopt Cell engine for new Xbox (unlikely). Sony Profits. XDR2: A. Use GDDR5 RAM (Most likely going to be used for next Gen Xbox) B. Develop new RAM to match XDR2, again, time and money. C. Adopt XDR2. Sony Profits. In short, Nintendo has the Casual gold mine, while Sony is creating a huge advantage for the Next Generation of systems, forcing MS to use DVD, GDDR5, and ixisting intel / amd chip; or R&D for new technologies for these, or Adopting Blu-Ray, XDR, and Cell engines, thus, giving sony massive profits. Either way, Sony thought long term, as they always do.
pimp and the other retard just got b!tch slaped jager bubble
You got oooooooowned! :O
u remind me of lightningps3
PS3isBUST got Jager-bombed! *snicker* I'm here all week folks! Fish is for lunch! Enjoy the buffet!
You are trying so hard to hold up your tiny shred of hope that MS will reign supreme when it won't... ever. Listen here TROLL, it's waaaaaaay better for the industry to have competition. thats why i hope SONY doesn't destroy the XBOX PLEASEFIXME cause it would keep them on their toes. So just abort yourself and stop the BS cause your making yourself look like an idiot. JAGER gets BUBBLES for being REALISTIC. PS3isBUST gets killzoned
you have said everything that needs to be said, and everything i've been saying since before this generation started. +bubbles for you. it's just so funny, the PS3 is far from dead, it is actually keeping up, it's only in 3rd place because of the year delay. but its catching up fast. From my Gamestop store alone, i can honestly tell you that xbox360 sales have almost come to a halt, and people have been coming in way more than usual to buy a PS3. We sold all of our PS3's last week and still had a junk load of Pros and Elites. Just imagine when sony says "oh yeah, we're dropping that price by $100 tomorrow," its game over. This generation WILL end with the PS3 in second place. However with the #1 HARDCORE gamer's console. The Wii is practically in another "genre" of the market.
Did he just call Blu-rays fake? Haha... Best. Post. Ever.
is as real as the start od DVD was and soon enough 50GB will be standard just so you know... in case you have missed the last couple of years.
He got "Jagerowned." I'd go hide if I were you, PS3isBust. That was embarrassing.
I wasn't saying that YOU were insinuating that, I was just mocking ''ps3isbust'' I fully agree with you.
Will be more than impressive. Between Europe and NA combined sales will be around 2.4 million day one.
I would`t say between europe an NA, but worldwide it will reach that figure first day. Also fps sell better in NA so don`t be surprised if it will sell more than in europe. And we had the eu figures before the demo was released. Imagine the preorders now. And the ads have not even started yet.
yep very true jager and thats why ms wont put bluray into there console cause they want there own monopoly on things if they can think of it:P
4 million or more....all my friends are getting this game sometime but sony marketing still sucks still have not seen one commercial or another along with RE5...which was enjoyable
If It sells one copy it still will be a great game...it dosent have to sell 10 million copys to be better than that game i wont mention..there were and are plenty of fps better than that game
That's because Americans are still in love with their 360's. They don't care what game comes out for it...they'll buy it, just to spite every PS3 owner. They still think the PS3 doesn't have any good games, Blu-ray is a scam, the controller doesn't have rumble, the PSN is really crappy, the PS3's graphics are outdated, and most of them don't know about the video section of the PS Store. Sad, isn't it?
was that sarcasm?
As an American I disagree. Out of the 11 of my friends that own a next-gen console 9 of them own PS3s and the 2 that own 360s have told me they want to buy a PS3 just for the blu-ray (which is a lie they know they want the games). So I think we'll be seeing a PS3 revolution here shortly.
Im an American, and i own a PS3. i owned an Xbox, Game Cube, and PS2 last gen (Dreamcast dropped out before i got around to it, but if i see one on Ebay, its mine.) Before that, i didnt even have a PS1, just the N64. The only reason why i havnt gotten a 360 is: 1. College is coming, i need to save my money for food, gas, whatnot. 2. No point to it really, why buy a 360 when i can get most of its games on either the PS3 or my gaming rig? 3. i hate (HATE) paying for stuff that by rights, should be free. why do you think Windows Live failed hard? Cause PC gamers stuck with Steam, or Battlefield servers. However, depending on upcoming games, amount of money saved, and scholarships i get... then i might get a 360, for Halo 3 and Gears 2
My friends aren't like that. Most of them can't afford one and get a little pissed when I buy a multiplat on the ps3, but they don't think those things. However, xbox fanboyism probably is the worst in the US. But times are tough and money is limited.
It would be like bragging about having a short penis. Just a joke don't freak.
Thats because there is only like 5 people in NA who will buy it, everyone else buys 360 and Wii games.
