Remember the days when PS3 multi-platform titles sales paled in comparison to that of the 360's? Those days are now gone. Further evidence of the PS3 having a monster year can be found everywhere right now.
DON'T GO THROUGH! DON'T GO THROUGH! DON'T GO THROUGH! ARRGH 1 MORE APPROVAL!!
Dumb fanboys. The Xbox 360 version it's outselling the PS3 version everywhere......... except Japan, where there's not a large Xbox 360 userbase. I expect this game to sell around 4 million on 360 and 1 and a half on PS3.
America and Japan show a closer gap between sales..with Xbox 360 taking the lead
America and Europe!! lol
you're going to have lots of disagrees :) I only see Xbox 360 version selling better in America than ps3 version because of install base. Europe is close battle. Japan is Sony land.
I dont even see Europe as a close battle. Only UK. And that was very close... god i dont know why im arguing. I dont care about sales. Damn N4G is corrupting me.
Now we all know why hip hop rhymes with flip flop. I could care less what that site has to report. It is on the whole a disservice to the gaming community regardless of one's preferred console affiliation. hhg has demonstrated clearly a penchant for inaccuracy coupled with a liberal sprinkling of sensationalism. Although I personally think the sales of RE5 on the PS3 will surprise people I despise hhg's repeated haphazard reporting. GTAIV shocked the world when the sales revealed the two versions fairly neck and neck. Do not be surprised if the PS3 version does indeed outsell the 360 version. There is no DLC incentive to push players in the 360 direction. The lineage of RE on the PlayStation brand is long. That said I would prefer to hear such analysis from a reliable source rather than a site willing to say or do anything for a webhit or some spare change.
I think everyone can agree that HHG brings nothing good to n4g. Also, the quote of the sales ratio between consoles is wrong. The 45/55 split between 360 and PS3 is flip flopped. HHG got the sales stats from VGChartz. Quote and link. http://news.vgchartz.com/ne... "Preliminary VGChartz data has current sell-through at around 1.6 million units across Xbox360 and PS3 (45/55% split worldwide), in just 9 days of release in Japan and two days everywhere else. VGChartz will bring you more data as it comes in." The PS3 is selling 55% and the 360 selling 45%. Granted, RE5 has been out in Japan for a week longer and sold 4:1 on the PS3. However, the info is still wrong. Edit: Morgan- I was in agreement with you until you said GTA4 sales are neck and neck. All you have from Rockstar is a quote that says the sales ratio is 50/50. What is the actual breakdown if the publisher doesn't release the numbers? If you agree with the numbers breakdown for RE5, you should be in agreement with their GTA4 sales breakdown. "GTA 4 sold 6.88 Million copies. On PS3 the game sold 5.47 Million copies." HHG actually quoted the info right this time. You can't have it both ways.
You do realize that Rockstar will have to disclose the breakdown of their financial earnings? You know this right? You do realize this will reveal the truth, right? And you do realize that were your wild accusations correct they would have a great deal of explaining to do about why they lied? You know that right? You also know there is little doubt that senior board members already know the exact breakdown of earnings so you are including them in your accusation of Rockstar's collusion with Sony as part of a conspiracy? You know this, right? You are suggesting that their silent participation makes them legally liable, you are aware of this correct? You do realize that public statements concerning sources of earnings, even though not part of an official earnings estimate in fact carry a legal liability. You are aware of this, right? Such charges would be even more dangerous if Rockstar is, as you seem to suggest, acting in an intentionally deceptive manner. So you are suggesting that either on a whim or by design Rockstar is engaging in a public action that carries with it a legal liability. Do you see what you are suggesting? That they would do something financially reckless. Does that make sense? I am a person that believes conspiracies do exist in business but you need to take a closer look at the absurdity of what you are saying. EDIT: And I can have it both ways. Just because hhg are wholly unreliable doesn't mean they do not sometimes report something accurate. Hell, even VGchartz is sometimes right. Not by design, but by accident. As Chiun said, even a fool is occasionally blessed with luck. And basing sales figures on the remarks of Rockstar is completely different than basing such accuracy on VGChartz. You should be old enough to comprehend that small yet distinctive fact.
you had me until I got to the the third "you do realize". Then you just started coming off as a raving fanboy...so I skipped the rest Everything you said about HHG is true but its hilarious how he still managed to get you to throw more fuel onto the fire.
The PS3 fans are turning on HHG, I thought they had nothing but praise for him. Oh, that's right he spoke positive of the 360 in this article. What the hell was he thinking? j/k
You take my comments and distort them as fits your agenda. Yes, I do know Rockstar is legally liable in releasing financial earnings or statements. It is fact that the complete breakdown of GTA4 sales (units sold for 360 vs PS3) was not made available. A "guesstimate" of 50/50 was made. It does not benefit Rockstar and their stock more importantly to say one version or another sold more. All that is important is revenue generated per console in each fiscal cycle and how many units (multiconsole) were sold. The point I was trying to make (that you so clearly ignored) was the fact that an exact number was not given. Does 50/50 ratio mean we divide 13 million in half and get an equal number? No. Obviously one version sold more than the other. The only consolation I will make is that the difference was not big. If the difference in sales between 360 and PS3 was 2+ million it would have been worth pointing out. 50/50 however doesn't say much and that's why estimates from VGChartz are useful. On topic: The sales ratio of RE5 sold for 360 vs PS3 is artificially inflated on the PS3's end currently. The game released a week prior in Japan where the title sold 4-1 better on the PS3. Who is to say what the final numbers will be but it should be noted that no one is "winning" yet. So many users claim RE5 will sell more for PS3. No one can make that claim yet with certainty. Killzone 2 just came out and the 360 install base is larger. Outside of Devil May Cry 4, I don't remember a big budget multiplatfrom title selling more on the PS3 (Burnout Paradise?) All I'm trying to say is that there is a slightly better reason to predict the 360 version will ultimately sell more overall. RE5 releasing in March is good for both PS3 and 360.
Not bad for an originally playstation franchise. The same happened with Devil May Cry 4. Also, we still need to see those US numbers, which should turn the tables in the final count.
you come off as a big douche bag, you know that right? :p
"In Japan Square Enix are game gods and if they can only manage to sell 166,000 copies of a highly anticipated game then something is wrong. " -Quote from article Selling 200k on a consoles with less than a million userbase is wrong?? I think your article is kinda wrong
It's just HHG's contributers showing their PS3 colors.. He found out his stories critizing the PS3 and praising the 360 weren't getting thru so now it's back to sucking the Playstation shlong and it's approval city.. This is the second one today. But yeah your right, that is far from wrong and of course doom and gloom for the 360.
Even I with my bias for PS3, am going to report this fool's articles. I don't care what side this two-faced idiot takes in any one of his trash articles. Hip-Hop Gamer needs to be banned from this site. It gives N4G a horrible rep with submissions like these getting through.
some 1 crying over here lol ^^, guess CNN should be closed down too, since they where the once who made the PS3 is a sinking ship article right colombiano ? Keep waiting 4 that 2 happen bro
you are wrong, it is not hhg that has ruined the reputation of n4g, but it is sony fanboys like you that have ruined the reputation of n4g. hhg just feeds off of you knuckle heads on n4g for hits. notice how most of his "articles" are titled to fit your ps3 fanboyish needs. he knows you all out number xbox fans 100-1 on here you and 4 billion other hypocritical sony fan girls that have ruined n4g are to blame for their "decline" in reputation. not exactly fair you wanna throw all the blame on hhg......you better throw some of that blame at yourselves, and the n4g moderators... peace i know the truth sucks/hurts
what happened to ur friend power of green?? lol
Fantastic news,still won't buy it.
I agree with you bad game and just a BLOG POST THAT ISNT NEWS OH SH6T REALLY?
I agree %100
lol if u saw how many blogs are approved in this site.
game itself isn't bad its just they went completely action instead of horror. but overall its a decent game just not a resident evil game. ;)
Seriously...at least rent the game. It's fantastic!
I personally think it's fantastic game, but not as good as Resident Evil 4.
But I have no interest in RE5.Playing with a partner in the demo just annoyed me and ruined the gameplay entirely.Literally, that's why I don't want to play it.
Don't rent this game at all. Its not worth a rent, you must buy it. The controls aren't bad and co-op is fun.
but i still can't get around the controls, i am sorry that my excuse is played out, but i don't think i could enjoy it.
If you love RE you have to play this game. The story is awesome. Not very scary anymore but I loved playing as Chris again. Playing co=op is awesome. Give it a shot. You'll be pleasantly surprised!
were the controls different in the demo than the final game? that was the only thing holding me back from the game, but from what i have read/heard the controls are the same.
this article doesnt even make sense, currently 360 version has sold more, (45%PS3 VS 55%360)
"this article doesnt even make sense, currently 360 version has sold more, (45%PS3 VS 55%360)" Considering the 8 million (give or take lead) the PS3 version is clearly selling 'better' based on attach rate. Either way Capcom aren't complaining.
HHG. Again? In one day? ...sigh. Why? Make it stop!
i sick of these articles too. nothing but flame bait day after day after day
as long as people enjoy the game is all it matters.
He's backing up the claims with facts and everyone uses the "OMG, its HHG again" attack. Gee, I don't know where this hate comes from. Maybe the people who can't stand seeing the PS3 get any GOOD news on N4G's front page?
most people disagree with the Hip Hop gamer and it has nothing to do with games.
It was a playstaion franchise. This is the first time residen evil is available for the 360. BTW is not being outsold by huge numbers.
all those PS2 owners that shifted towards the 360?
HHG needs to ban all his lil fanboy writers from submitting there stories on N4G , WTF is up this crappy article.... I really dont think anyone expected RE:5 PS3 version to get hammered by the 360 version , so whats the point of this article again ? oh yeh Hits for his website
That say that the 360 version is selling more...ill explain one reason why this could be happening. I love the resident evil series. (i wish they had more zombies rather then human infected people - steals away from the survival horror feeling that the first couple of RE had) anyways i have not purchased RE5. Reason why > Killzone 2. it was lauched way way to close to killzone 2 so i will be delaying my purchase until i start to crave something new. 360 owners on the other hand have no AAA games at the moment. lets be honest. therefore RE5 > everyone will be getting it because RE series is great and 360 currently has no real other games at the moment so my take on this. but i personality dont care if they sell alot or not on which console. what does that prove anyway?
Quick turnaround from PS2 days PS3 still coming last in H/W.
Coming 2nd in sales per year.
not really. last year the ps3 stayed close to the 360 even though the 360 had 10 price drops.
did you forget that?
AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH THIS IS NOT NEWS. Why do we keep puting these articles up. dear god why? Do people actually want pointless fanboy banter?
How is this in anyway fanboy banter? I think it describes a parity between the two systems.
We already know the games on PS3 are better, sell better, and have the most exclusives (which are good ones I should add). Yes, 2009 is the year of the PS3 just like 2008. I still won't click on this "hiphopgamershow" garbage.
It is your OPINION that games on the PS3 are better, idiot. Games sell more on the 360, that's a FACT. I'm not even sure that the PS3 has more exclusives. When you look at the games lists on wikipedia, it looks like the 360 has more, especially when you count the console exclusives, which, unless you actually buy them on the PC, which most people don't, are exclusives. I don't think the year of the PS3 has happened yet. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
so...If you have a PS3 you can buy RE5 for that....and the same for a X360? Lol, stories like this are completely inept!!!
That's pretty darn good, especially since Sony didn't make a console themed on the game. In fact, it's kinda sad that the 360 console is selling so well and the PS3 is still leading on sales. Indecently if I ever pick this game up, it'l be on 360. The visuals looked a lot better.
I bought the red 360 to match the red rings it will be getting.
PS3 is a golden god!
Who cares which system sells more re5 copies? why does it matter? Personally, I will continue to buy everything on PS3 just because I barely use my 360 and it will go towards my trophy progress. But why would it matter to me if RE5 sold more for PS3 or 360 in a given region?
Doesn't shock me street fighter 4 sold better on the ps3 even though some of the major stores wasn't stocking it until a week later and it's still selling better on the ps3
Still shocks me the hate for PS3 from some people. At least PS3 fans have a reason to dislike 360 & M$. 360: Decent software. But that's it. Hardware failures up the wazoo. Not quite sure why you 360 fans stick by an old system. Granted it's got some time left. But the PS3 train is starting to leave the station now. and it's building up steam.
what the hell? some people seriously have their heads up their ass. the people saying the sales split between resi 5 is 45/50 worldwide, can you not read? that is for the UK ONLY. no one really knows what the sales split is worldwide although i think the ps3 version sold better in all of europe and japan (obviously) so its down to america. still ps3 numbers are more impressive becasue of the 360's apparent "8 million lead" either half the 360's are broke or most of the owners are sitting on their asses still playing halo 3.
but then again this is coming from hiphop gamer, which have proved time and time again that they do not know how to read or write at 3rd grade level
Remember the days when PS3 multi-platform titles sales paled in comparison to that of the 360's? Those days are now gone. Er, sorry but no there not, RE 5 has a huge install and frame rate issues on the ps3, in other words PS 3 owners are getting flawed insults of ex exclusives that Sony should ensure look and play a hell of a lot better than they do. People who own the 360 should buy the games one 360, this really breaks my heart having own all the Sony consoles from day one (not the upgrades). And ownly owning the 360 not the original Xbox. Sony really need to help devs on M.P games. So right fine, people are buying games on 360 over PS3, but their not getting the best out of their games.
It because all of those 360 are out of warrant and now they see spending there money getting them fix
a quick turnaround glad to see ps3 doing some much need catch up though just in time for the next xbox ???
It's not a quick turnaround. And anyway, what turnaround are they talking about? PS3's still in 3rd by a big margin. Lets not get carried away pretending that PS3 will in anything but last place anytime soon. If you disagree, please state how it is not so
I disagree to the fact that your making this a pathetic race. If it's a race, it doesn't matter what place you are, unless you are in 1st, your a loser.
xbox 360 was out for nearly 1yrs 6months before the PS3 came maybe that why ahead that alot of time for people to wait and i know of quite alot of people that brought more than 1 xbox because theirs kept breaking down
I own a 360 and my friends list is full. The reason I bring this to point is that I've talked to most of my friends and most if not all I've talked to aren't interested in this game. They say you surround yourself with people likewise to yourself. If this is the case, and I feel it is. Were not buying it and that's 98 out of 100 people I know. Then it's just not everyone's cup of tea... I've seriously only seen 2 active games of Resident Evil 5 running since it's been out.
They are sweet!
