The Darkness has a strong start on both PS3 and Xbox 360. List of top selling games for week ending 01st July 2007. Rainbow Six Vegas PS3 makes it to top 10 and the number one is Wii Pokemon.
WHY IS FIGHT NIGHT ROUND 3 STIL UP THERE???????????????
Maybe, just......maybe....people are still buying it? i could be wrong of course!.....j/k
edit:y do ppl disagree with me? there was no reason to disagree with my comment..
RE:6 up there. Haven't tried the Darkness yet.
Good to see a great new IP like The Darkness having such a strong start. Wow, its hard to believe new Harry Potter isn't among top 10.
I KNOW....I though kids would buy it like its Pokemon or something....
True. And the stranger thing is that the PS3 version is higher than PS2 and 360 version. I expected the Wii version to at least make it to top ten.
I think when the actual movie comes next week, the sales of Harry Potter game will grow.
i don't trust VG chartz anymore after their gross over estimation of the may numbers
No wonder so many developers are supporting the 360....that's a lot of games. Well Sony I will keep buying games to support you, be sure to hurry up and bring out those AAAs. I am waiting.....
Despite the 360 fanbase being way bigger than the PS3 right now, The darkness (PS3) managed to sell half of the 360's amount.
IMO that is good.. mathematically speaking :P
It has to do alot with the ps3 audience being more hardcore, as a result of the high price tag, the majority of ps3 owners are hardcore and tend to buy more games than the casual gamers. As a result a greater percentage of the ps3 install base bought The Darkness than the xbox 360 base since that market has part of the casual crowd mixed in. Like ps2 and xbox, the software sales at the time weren't that far off considering the ps2's install base is 4 times that of the xbox
So you're saying that the 360 being expensive (less expensive than the PS3), but still expensive and with a library of games that appeals more to the hardcore gamer, has less hardcore gamers than the PS3??
..... with an almost 14 mil fanbase?? I doubt that..
Most of the PS3 users right now are hardcore,, yeah I agree and PS3 owners like myself are almost desperate for any game.. Yeah that probably is the reason The darkness sells are not that far apart..
Still mathematically speaking considering the fanbase discrepancy between the 360 and the PS3, it is a good sign..
I'm not trying to flame the 360 or anything, I'm just saying that is good to see PS3 owners are buying the software despite the reason they are doing it..
111,000 Darkness units sold on 360 versus 53,000 units of the Darkness sold in the US. 360 has 6.47 mil systems sold versus PS3 with 1.56 mil PS3s sold in the US. So despite being outnumbered 4x with systems sold, the PS3 owners manage sell half as much of the 360 which is good. Im a PS3 owner and did not buy this game because Ninja Gaiden is coming out and I just can't buy two games at once.
well we have had many months to save our money right i have at least £500 saved up just for the games excluding the ps3 that im buying in a few weeks that will have that money gone.
ninja gaiden should sell well.
with an almost 14 mil fanbase, lmao.
More like 14million repairs,lol. or not as the case maybe.
Ms shot themselves in the foot extending the warranty.
At least vista is working sweet for me:)
VGChartz should be banned. It's grossly inaccurate.
