NPD: BioShock 2 Feb. PS3 sales just shy of 200k mark

Despite the Xbox 360 edition's #1 ranking in US February game sales, the PS3 version of BioShock 2 was curiously absent from the top ten listing. An NPD representative told Joystiq that the PS3 game recorded roughly 190.5k units sold last month, "just outside the top 10 at #11."

The story is too old to be commented.

Indeed just shows how over rated the original was just because it was a 360 exclusive. The funny thing is wasn't this on another article?? I am sick of these articles based off articles. Can't people write original stuff anymore?

It could be overrated, but I still loved the first one. Not paying 69.99 (here in Canada). I just bought 2 PS3 exclusives Heavy Rain and Yakuza 3 for 59.99 a piece, and multiplat FF XIII for the same price. I don't see why Bioshock 2 would be more expensive.

MAg and Heavy Rain...Bioshock will get its turn

You know I agree with you.

Meanwhile I'm just waiting my copy of GoW3 to maildrop next Tuesday.

Bioshock 1 is quite an interesting game. Still need to beat it. The sequel will have to wait, if I ever decide to pick up. Lets see.

That's it. Way too many games in a short period of time. I'm definitely getting Bioshock 2 but I'm getting GOW III first.

Was not due to Heavy Rain, it was due to the first Bioshock coming out a year later on the PS3 with virtually no hype, thus causing it to sell very little. Without many Bio 1 owners on the PS3 its no real surprise there aren't that many Bio 2 owners.

simple fact is that the bioshock franchise has a bigger fanbase on the xbox360 and how can you say overrated??? it is by far the best game ive played this year so far

vhero2998d ago

wow your easily amused then eh?

The points:

1) Learn to hit reply.

2) Your assumptions are way out of left field. Ever think I might of said overrated because I PLAYED IT? You know what they say about assumptions.... except this time it isn't me looking bad.

3) You best game of the year statement is very sad. If Bioshock2 is the best game so far for you, A) dont play enough game, B) Have horrible taste and low standards, or C) You really need to get another gaming console besides the 360.
