Check out an expanded listing of the top 20 sales for the February 2010 NPD sales data (positions for Bioshock 2 (PS3), Aliens vs. Predator, MAG, and more).
I pretty much knew the PS3 version of Bioshock 2 would be close to the top 10.
Pretty good to see the Playstation community still supporting MAG. It's selling very well.
Great to see NBA 2K10 on the list too, 2K/Take Two need a hit and it looks like they cleaned up pretty well last month.
Bioshock 2 is from 2K. They should just give up making baseball games. I wish 2k and EA would switch sports franchises. 2K should do NFL and EA should do Baseball. The two major sports franchises would be awesome every year.
PS3 has 7 games in top 20 Nintendo (Wii and DS) has 8 games 360 has 6 games looks like 360 owners don't buy games...lol
Typo... PS3 6 360 6 Nintendo Wii and DS 8
Missing Action Game or Massive Absent Game, either it had very disappointing sales. Heavy Rain did double what I thought it would sell though, so that was good. PS3 still continues to struggle with software sales. Even though the xbox 360 and Wii are pirated they sell much more software than the ps3...odd
I wonder what the reason is for you only having one bubble. Oh wait I know.
MAG was never gonna sell well
It deserves more sales. All I really care about is the queues are still short and the games are full.
MAG is set to sell over 1mill before the end of this year. It's already sold well over 600k in 2months. What other online only shooter do you know has come anywhere close to that kind of sales figures? The closet one as Warhawk and that took nearly 2yrs to get past 500k but it was seen as a big success so was SOCOM:con and that took nearly 2yrs to get to 750k. What else, Shadow Run or something? Lets remember, Sony is THE only company that routinely has online only gaming and these games are wildly supported in comparison to what you see on any other console and it's a different market than Disc based SP&MP campaign games.
What other shooter? Where the hell have you been?
You and the people who agreed with you need to learn to read. He wrote ONLINE ONLY shooter.... Your Halo is safe...
cmoney there are 6 ps3 games(3 exclusives) and 6 x360 games(1 exclusive which is on PC too) on the list.pretty good for x360 considering there was 1 ps3 game more in top 20 for january.
No doubt the FF13 xbox bundles will give us some interesting numbers for next month
These sales numbers include Nomal, CE, GOTY editions, bundles, etc. but not those bundled with hardware.
1. Bioshock 2 (360) – 562.9K 15. MAG (PS3)----> mediocre game and even hit in 1.0 m sold copies 10. Heavy Rain (PS3) – 219.3K ----->game most hyped of 2010 for ps3 fans is a big flop and failed of the year. :( looks the exclusives of ps3 sell a lot. /sarcasm "but the exclusives is better" no more excuses ps3 fanboys ps3 is died... and you know it... deal with it ps3 fanboys ;)
8. Dante’s Inferno: Divine Edition (PS3) – 242.5K 9. Dante’s Inferno (360) – 224.7K With the 360 having twice as big of an install base, I would've expected much better.
It used to be those who couldn't afford a PS3 just got the cheaper DVD console instead. Or who's parents didn't want to spend more that is. Which is it for you? Seeing that they are now the same price. You still have no money to buy the better system huh? That is really the case for many gamers. But if sells really do mean all the much to you. Does your DVD system have one game of the year game? Any perfect score games? It's really a cheap plastic toy son with last gen's DVD drive and no Wi-Fi, no 1080p. One day we'll stop all the console wars and just go back to being gamers. Like it was when I grew up.
Once again the software sales on the PS3 are terrible. It's a shame really. I would've thought with all the talk by the hardcore fanboys that they would've went out and bought the games they said they would on day 1. What happened? Multiplats are selling better then those unmatched exclusives! Dante's Inferno is selling better then both MAG and Heavy Rain? LMAO!!! Further proof that what you hear by PS fanboys on N4G means squat. You people don't buy games period!!! Here's a little advice. Instead of spending all your time defending your console of choice on N4G, you should maybe support the console instead. I guess there was a shortage of games as well as PS3's. Bring on the excuses..... ;)
Even gamers agree that MW2 is a better game than MAG. I'm glad that people outside this fanboy jungle are smart enough to see that. Good to see Mass Effect 2 continue to sell well. They're around 3 million sales already. Very impressive. 360 games just sell better.
Nice comment. I especially liked the part where you pretend to know what you're talking about. The arrogance is a nice touch too, but some may find it a bit overwhelming.
because sales equal better quality...we all know that. yea...remember Enter the Matrix...damn that game was soooooo gooood...sold a million in week it was such a good game....oh wait.. edit: so I guess ICO and SoTC sucks...cuz sales weren't that great. and comparing a well established franchises' sales ( Call of Duty) to a new IP isn't like using Matrix movie tie in as an excuse right? and since when is 7 equal a crappy game? Sounds average to me... you are basing Mag by average score. Average score for ICO states that although YOU didn't like it. It's considered a great game by non fanboys such as you. so by that ratioanle your own theory 'great games sell well' is wrong. You even mentioned 50 cent games selling well...regardless..by your theory..if it sold well it = great game.
Sales does mean great quality. Great games sell well. If it's not selling well that means people aren't interested in it, right? It means it's just not that good. MAG is averaging a mid 7. That's a game that deserves its low sales. Enter the Matrix is a popular movie franchise that came out during the peak of it's popularity. That's completely different when you bring in an entertainment franchise outside of the gaming realm. 50 Cent is another crappy game that sold well but their are a lot of 50 cent fans that played it and liked it at that. Actually ICO did suck. Boring game. SOTC was pretty good but not without its many flaws. Main one being all the bosses were pretty much the same. Plus no variety in levels and gameplay also made it kind of bland. Great games sell well. Average games sell low.
first fact: NPD is the stats... only! the ps3games sells better in eu and asia. remember this. and in the us, you have alot more gamers with xbox. fact 2: sells isnte = guality good game. if it was, we would all praise the wii and wii sport/fit. ps3 eksklusiv is still the best and you know it ;)
Look at these fanboys in here, PS3 has 6 games in the top 20 just like the 360 and that somehow considered bad. Pathetic.
Wait until March's numbers with FFXIII and GOW3. Should = mind blown. Be interesting to see BFBC2's as well.
Not surprised at all to see Dante's the second best selling game on the PS3. It really is that good. I'll have the Plat trophy tonight for it. Love the game, a must play!
Its software sales are phenomenal !!!! It has surpassed everything by far
Man those 360 owners sure love their FPS games.
Is that a bad thing?
360 only won cus of ps3 shortage just wait till march and god of war 3 wich was great btw except for sad ending but well see what happens then im so suprised about da wii tho
