Analyst: Mass Effect 2 Outsold Everything 6-to-1

If you bought Mass Effect 2 and you like being on the winning "team" when it comes to game trends, high five. According to DFC Intelligence, BioWare's latest spacefaring adventure sold an estimated 1.1 million copies (of the Xbox 360 version) in January -- six times the sales of any other game.

The story is too old to be commented.
SpoonyRedMage2868d ago

Haha, no. Darksider's has sold over a million according to THQ and I doubt it sold 850K in Europe but only 150K in NA.

we won2868d ago

By 6 times? probably not but the game tops the sales charts for sure. Calm down son.

sparta762868d ago

6 to 1?
Hmmm!!!
That's alot!!
Didn't darksiders sell 1 million?
Great game hope it sells 5 million. This game is AWSOME!
Everybody should play this game!

Greywulf2868d ago

Congrats WiiFit.

You WON!

darkmurder2868d ago

Still beats PS3 exclusive sales in a month, just saying.

baum2868d ago

Why Dis is still here? lmfao, get yourself a new (another) account, buddy. That way we might be able to see what you say.

Saaking2868d ago (Edited 2868d ago )

I don't care about sales. Even if they sold only 100 copies I don't care as long as I get my copy.

More sales will not enhance the experience, just like less sales will not downgrade it.

ThanatosDMC2868d ago

Great game. I cant wait for the next full game from Bioware. Dragon Age expansion is coming out soon!

evrfighter2868d ago

It's a great game that got great sales. Mass Effect is probably the best IP this gen.

EVILDEAD3602868d ago

Bioware is the 2010 Naughty Dog..They pulled it off in spades..ME3 is set to break RPG sales records in a couple of years. EA also has got to be jumping for joy..they finally got some good news.

I honestly went into withdrawal for a couple of days after I finished Mass Effect 2..I didn't want it to end. Hopefully they go the Dragon Age route and release a huge expansion later in the year.

Life is good!

ryuzu2868d ago

Is this good? Or does it simply mean that 360 had one decent release this month?

Surely this simply demonstrates how light the 360 is for good exclusives at the moment.

Still amazed some people think this is an RPG. Whatever next?? If I put a sticker saying "Hot Babe" on a pinball machine - it's still just a pinball machine.

1.3 is right. People are too caught up in sales. I mean Wii sells the most but does that make it the best console availible? Not by a longshot. Just because something sells a lot doesnt mean you should be a blind sheep and follow along, which is what the article is implying you should do.

Mass Effect 2 may be good but I doubt it out sold "everything" (I lold at that part).

saint_john_paul_ii2868d ago

they are not the ND of 2010. They are the Square Enix of the west. except that Square enix sucks now.

So basically what you're saying is that Forza, despite being less popular than GT is the better game right? It scores higher than GT and since sales don't matter... Or does this only apply to PS3 exclusives because they all underperform?

mikeslemonade2868d ago

Not suprising since 360 games sell a lot. What I'm interested in is 360 hardware sales hardly went up. Microsoft can't seem to expand there hardware demographic. With Mass Effect 2 360 sells 340,000 units versus PS3 who sold 330,000 units but the PS3's best exclusive was only MAG.

TehCell2868d ago

Saaking dont be a hypocrite.
In cases like this, "teh salez dont matter"
But if it was MAG that was outselling, "omgomg dats nice xbox suks lolloolllo go ps3 futre of gaming"

You know its true.

PoSTedUP2868d ago (Edited 2868d ago )

and has more money.
and has i think 7 million more consoles out there.
great sales, i herd the game was really good.

SilentNegotiator2868d ago

Wow, that's quite a feat for a JANUARY release......*Breaks off into laughter*

Bigpappy2868d ago

Sales guaranty sequels. Sales pay the staff and grow the company to make more games. Sales help the developers buy more and better tech to improve the sequels. Sales help grow the fanbase so they can sell even more next time. So saying you don't care about sales every time a 360 game dominates sale is kind of on the dumb side of the discussion.

soxfan20052868d ago (Edited 2868d ago )

1.3 - Sales = Winning?
Congrats WiiFit.

You WON!

This is coming from they guy who LOVES to bring up Gran Turismo sales vs. Forza at EVERY possible opportunity - now sales don't matter again.

Why doesn't the "Wii Fit" arguement come up when you talk GT sales?

baum2868d ago

Hey I've seen you act like a victim before, complaining about PS3 fanboys and everything as it is the routine of every other 360 fanboy. If you're gonna complain again though, could you avoid posts where you make sensationalist remarks and overly exaggerated claims like the ones you just made? You know, just a heads up in case you don't want to seem like a huge hypocrite.

Pistolero2868d ago

Baum, you are the very definition of hypocrite...so GTFO...you have no business lecturing anybody....you troll nearly every single 360 article...so quit crying because a 360 fan is getting excited in a 360 article.

Rockox2867d ago

Bigpappy, I totally agree. When I like something, I hope it does well financially, because it means I might see more of what I like in the future. It's the same reason I buy CDs and pay for concert tickets; I want the artists and bands I like to get a little kickback, and I hope they can still put out great music. Same goes for games.

LMFAO @ the one of the silliest posts I've seen on this site. I'm a hypocrite because I'm praising Bioware for the success of easily one of the best games I've played in years?

I keep it 100% real..you guys keep it 100% troll. i actully buy and play the games..you guys sit on the internet and bicker about the other system's games.

On topic, I will reiterate.Naughty Dog pulled off an amazing sequel last year and took home all the accolades. At the beginning of 2010 Bioware has done the same. Which is why I called them the 2010 Naughty dog.

I'm beside myself, because I would love to continue replaying ME2, but I'm knee deep in Bioshock 2 at the moment. once again..let the haters hate..Bioware and EA should be proud that it all came together..ME3 will dominate in a couple of years

OGharryjoysticks2867d ago (Edited 2867d ago )

Since this is so old I doubt many people will check this but after reading a bunch of posts on #1 I want you guys to know that some of you really annoy me.

...at least EVILDEAD360 got Bioshock 2. Keep up with the times people. Bioshock 2 FTW! =)

Ofcourse it's going to outsell everything when 5 out of those games were released last year, two new IP's and a sequal to a mediocre game.

Ohhh and Modern Warfare 2 FTW.

Major_Tom2868d ago (Edited 2868d ago )

1.1 Million for Xbox 360, what a flop.

FACT: Xbox 360 owners don't buy games.

JasonPC360PS3Wii2868d ago

360 owners buy more games than PS3 owners. How can you actually type something so stupid Major_Tom?

AngryTypingGuy2868d ago

I guess this is proof that you don't need to release your game on every console to have amazing sales numbers...just make sure that the console you release your game to is the one whose customers actually buy and play games.

EvilBlackCat2868d ago

But but bu bu bu bu bu this game suck and the series is going to suck.

I remember similar comments related to Mass Effect 1 because it was on Xbox360 but now they want this on their console. Now the Mass Effect is the sh1t!

Bnet3432868d ago

Dark Void (22,000)

Capcom needs to stop letting western devs make their games. Dead Rising 2 will have the same fate as Bionic Commando, Dark Void, and every other westernized turd Capcom has pooped out by now.

PS: Gratz to BioWare on ME2.

saint_john_paul_ii2868d ago

i think Capcom said something like this along the lines
