hmmm, looks like A Crack in time didnt do too well. Did TOD reach a million?
Also i wonder what the numbers for R2 are.

Glad U2 is selling so well though, it deserves it!!

6 Uncharted 2 haters? Get real the game was good.
Saaking  +   1729d ago
It's good to see Demon's soul is selling better than expected. And ACiT definitely deserves more sales. It's a great game, but I had to put it aside for a while. Need to finish ME2 first.

"The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (Nintendo Gamecube) ~ 2.33 million
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Nintendo Wii) ~ 2.6 m
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo 64) ~ 3.5 m"

Is this Truth? cuz TLoZ is Nintendo Best IP

UC2 900K?

Come On, This Game IS DAMN AWESOME!!!

Well there aren't 14 360 fans on this site total, so those disagrees must be coming from sony fanboys that will go against their own opinions just to disagree with me.

Which honestly is freakin hilarious.
vhero  +   1729d ago
Infamous sold 500k this long after launch?? Now that is what you call keeping up. It says Forza 450k? So that's not Forza 2? I guess a lot of people picked up platinum/classics range after christmas to boot there collections.

no I think it's more like seeing the devil in church when people see you praising a PS3 game.

Let's try to remember that making numbers up and claiming to have NPD numbers is a big way to get hits....
zeeshan  +   1728d ago
For all I know, this could easily be fake! No point to argue over numbers that don't even matter!
Zackstorm  +   1728d ago
TP also sold over a million on the Gamecube. Making its numbers actually higher than OoT.
ReservoirDog316  +   1728d ago
I don't know if these are real or not but it's sad that people don't buy ratchet and clank much. Platformers are one of my favorite genres. But people just don't buy them much. And so far (about halfway in), this is arguably the best R&C. If anyone's on the fence on it while reading this, just buy it. Insomniac is one of the best developers around.

They say this might be the last R&C, which if you listen hard enough, you can probably hear my heart break as I write that. But if this is, I hope their next series they move onto gives them the success they so rightfully deserve. And unless it's a game about the life of a spider (arachnaphobic), I'll be first in line to buy it.

Seeing some of those figures is depressing, hopefully the European/Japanese numbers were better to boost a few sales here and there.
sashimi  +   1729d ago
Valkyria Chronicles should be selling a lot more! what is wrong with people!
Unicron  +   1729d ago
New IPs usually suffer, especially in fringe genres. It IS sad, and but one reason we have no Okami 2 =(
sikbeta  +   1729d ago
If Sega make a Trophy Patch, we'll see much more salez...
Obama  +   1729d ago
It did almost 2 times better than TOV on the 360, so the sales is pretty good considering it is a sjrpg.
Trevorthenerd  +   1728d ago
Um there is a okami 2 for DS...
Sevir04  +   1729d ago
uncharted 2 is doing well much better than the original.
looks like xbox games dont really clear a million in the States either. ^^
silvacrest  +   1729d ago
the numbers are not great on all consoles except the wii and DS, no surprise to be honest except i thought the 360 would do better on home turf

gamingisnotacrime  +   1729d ago
What a bunch of depressing figures
and the to know that Modern Glitchfare has sold so many millions while these very good games sell meh. It does not add up with over 25 million on PS3 and 360 each sold
if i were a game developer and i saw those numbers, i would be worried

neoGAF is not NPD... let's hear it from NPD
DarkAzureIIIX  +   1729d ago
Oh NPD who cares
World wide the games are doing fine. Some may said "but multi-player " well most game are world wide like MAG I heard european people on the mic all the time. Or SF4 I heard what sounded like people from the Island or something all the time. The Fact is NA doesn't matter as much since our money is worth less this Gen.
ReBurn  +   1729d ago

Central europe get games on wednesdays,we brits get it on fridays,not sure but do americans get games on a monday or tuesday?
Anyway the point is he may of heard EU folk,some uk retailers delivery games on wednesdays,but most will get today.

@ Reburn ~ Easy. ALL MARKETS matter. Not just 1 as "certain types of gamers" believe and try to push as fact.

Contradicting official press releases much?
Link goes to quotes from some 'AniHawk' guy on NeoGaf who's skewing numbers a bit. There have been official press releases already that show this guy's lowballing numbers. Uncharted 2 for example has already passed one million in the states. There's been press releases. Funny he ignores them and still posts only > 900k. Okay. He could've worded that differently so as not to discount an extra couple hundred thousand units at a quick glance, but okay.

Here's the kicker.

AniHawk saying Resistance is still Sony's best selling US game with Uncharted 2 the next closest by only a couple hundred thousand. Ummm...what? Uncharted 2 just passed one million in the states late last year...2009...MGS4 however passed a million in the US in December of 2008 http://www.gamasutra.com/ph... a full year earlier. It's sold much more since then. So Uncharted 2's a year behind, yet it's somehow leapfrogged MGS4 with less sales? lolz

Keep in mind that NPD does not include Wal-Mart or certain online vendors, or many of the hole-in-the-wall game stores out there. So if NPD lists it at 900K, it has definitely passed a million in the states.

TLDR: Both can be true.
SuperStrokey1123  +   1729d ago
I believe they do take the walmart sales estimated into thteir numbers. They are not 100% accurate but using statistical methods they are close enough. I could be wrong though
dkgshiz  +   1729d ago
yeah this should be removed
Its clearly fake.

GVON  +   1729d ago
Neogaf generally is.almost all the news these blog sites post here is normally because a gaf member has posted info,I dont post there but the amount of news,vids screens,interviews you find is awesome.

for example this


Some blog site or even a proper gaming site will pick this up and post as there own

put it this way- if i were a stock analyst for UBS i wouldn't be looking at this online rumour to compile a stock report for the gaming divisions of Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft.

hey wait... I am a stock analyst for UBS... this information is typical internet garbage.

EDIT: Nintendo is a gaming division... woops

Forza is doing fine
it's probably already sold more than flopzone 2 overall. Not so popular in NA as in Europe. Don't you worry about MS's exclusives droids as they tend to sell better than sony's, waaaay better.
PeptoBismol  +   1729d ago
I'm sorry but Forza 3 sucks...before you yell droid, check my profile I have a 360 as well

the game is just so underwhelming, and the physics engine feels the same as Forza 2...no real progress at all
SuperStrokey1123  +   1729d ago
Some of the numbers make no sense, like if resistance is the best selling game and then uncharted at 900K + then how the hell is mgs4 at 1.3 million? Shouldnt the 900k read 1.3m +? I dont think uncharted has reached 1.3 million either. Im not saying these are wrong but the numbers dont appear to ad up unless im missing something. Ill wait for official numbers myself.
Bigboss19  +   1729d ago
Metal Gear Solid 4 has sold 5.20 million worldwide making it the number one PS3 exclusive by sells...also i thought Killzone 2 has surpassed the 2million mark worldwide?
N4BmpS  +   1729d ago
It did I though it sold like 2.5mill
SuperStrokey1123  +   1728d ago
Actually it passed 3 million if i recall correctly.
horndog  +   1729d ago
I wasn't talking about gameplay Pepto
just saying that the game isn't doing as bad as the droids make it sound. You'r always entitled to your opinion of the game but that's not the subject here.
Ilikegames76  +   1729d ago
The bots were saying
that Forza 3 is better than GT5 and it's going to sell better than GT5. With all the hypes and all the reviews and the trash talking by the developer Turn 10. Everyone got the impression that Forza 3 sold millions, when in fact, GT5P, a "demo" according to the bots, outsold it.
N4BmpS  +   1729d ago
Not bad Uncharted 2; I wanna see the over all sales b4 I give a definite number though last time I checked U2 cracked over 3million(I wanna say 3.2million) but I don't know 4 sure. Oh I almost forgot too mention LBP yeah that's the good game. And also again glad about inFAMOUS too
