Sales of F1 2010 in the UK were nearly split down the middle between the PS3 and the 360 in the UK for the week ending September 25th. The racing simulator on the 360 cruised slightly ahead of the PS3 version by a 51:48 ratio.
nothing to do with ps3 port but more about the fanbase being on the 360 since the orignal
This, pretty much. With most poeple wanting this owning the original on 360 and the DLC on 360, there's little incentive to pick it up for PS3.
The graphics on the game(DR2) are some of the worst I've seen come out of Capcom. Think I'll wait for a price drop on that one.
Genesis: The game was made by Blue Castle with Inafune working with and consulting. They are not using the MT Framework engine but an engine BC has designed. The game is less about stellar visuals(even though they aren't that bad) but more about the game play. There is a lot to do in this game and one play through, unless you are really good, won't show you all the game has to offer. I dunno why, but I really thought PlayStation gamers would connect with this game. It's quirky, fun and a little different something that PS fans usually respond and give a chance too. It gave me that PS2 vibe in a good way.
Moonboots you make a very good argument. But with Castlevania LOS right around the corner. I think I find that game more worth my money. I did watch the Qore episode that did a feature on DR2 and while the game play did look interesting the game itself just didn't look that great. Not $60 great anyway. In order for me to be willing to spend full price on a game it has to be the full package. Good story, graphics and game play. Otherwise I'll wait till the price comes down. It almost always does.
I was excited about dead rising 2, until I seen the massive screen tearing and ridiculous frame rate drops.. so F#@k that sh1t! I'm getting lords of shadow.
Except Capcom is openly pissing on PS3-only owners by doing a poor port on top of excluding DLC. Paid DLC at that. It might be quirky, but its a dumbed down, trivialized version of the first. And again, they put no effort into making the PS3 version. I've already said what kind of quirky zombie title I'd like to see, one that puts you in a dying city where you have to think as well as fight against undead hordes. Not a group of scenes where "enemies" just wonder around for the most part waiting to be hit with bats, buckets and moose heads.
I don't care about DR2 this game is boiring and stupid, it can sell 100 360 copies to to one PS3 copy, whatever, this game can vanish i won't even notice. The racing simulator on the 360 cruised slightly ahead of the PS3 version by a 51:48 ratio. The remaining 2% of sales were made up by the PC version of the game. 51+48+2=101 WTF?
I saw the game on live stream. Well sorry to say that, but it didnt look good. You run through masses of Zombies, who do nothing, just standing around. At one point you had to fight a guy on a motorcycle and it was just stupid. I dont understand why xbox people like it. The next game I buy is:Fallout: News Vegas.
really ? the zombies do nothing ? LOL ! Thats lame.
But there are actually people on this planet that actually have both consoles. Which means, when a multiplat game releases, those with some semblance of logic will opt for whatever version is superior. In this case, the exclusive dlc and technical upper-hand favor the 360 version. So yes, in short, a poor port may be the cause of those numbers...well that plus UK is 360 land 2.0
dude i really don't think that. Bayonneta for PS3 sold more then the 360 version, And that was another crappy port from Capcom. It is most likely because the original was for the 360 and like the guys above me have said more familiar fanbase. Plus the dlc also could have helped. I mean the majority of people who buy games don't even know that it is a crappy port
''dude i really don't think that. Bayonneta for PS3 sold more then the 360 version, And that was another crappy port from Capcom. '' I dint know Bayonetta was from Capcom. the game was made by sega and platinum by the way.
oh thxs NAT i always get SEGA and Capcom Mixed up Some Days i even think Sonic is from Capcom but the point about it being a crappy port being the reason why it sold less doesn't really stand when a game like Bayonneta sold more on the crappier version
The general gamer doesn't/wont know the differences between the 360 and the ps3 versions. So a bad port wont really impact sales that much.
the original was one that I wished was on PS3...so happy that 2 was coming...but given the news about Crapcoms great support of PS3...I won't be getting it. So yes...in my case chalk it up to a piss poor game.
I don't know about this bad port stuff but the franchise started and is known on the 360 so I'm not surprised there are more purchases on that platform. Great game, at least give it a rental. Don't listen to all the over-blown talk about the minor problems, you are just giving into the fanboy propaganda. It is fun and a tear here and there won't make it any less of an enjoyable game.
Exactly. Capcom made no effort to expand the fanbase beyond the 360 as evidenced by the exclusive Prologue and Epilogue DLC. Releasing those on the PC and PS3 would have gone a long way in sales. But alas, they didn't.
Dead rising selling more on the 360 shouldnt surprise one person since most 360 owners probably played the original and decided to get the sequel while ps3 gamers are still new to series (well except those who own both consoles or came from 360). As for F1 it's HUGE in UK so no surprise it's selling well on both consoles really. Since there are supposedly millions more 360s sold over here though F1 should be more for 360 really but meh could be down to the fact RROD killed some of those consoles off or the fact that some still are only hardcore gamers either way F1 will continue to sell neck and neck in UK thanks to it being a national favourite.
i found nothing special about DR1 so i'm not wasting money on the sequel. castlevania will be the next purchase made money well spent.
The remaining 2% of sales were made up by the PC version of the game. yep. pc is not dead. well done sony. F1 sold almost equally as on x360. that's great considering there are 5 million x360's and only 3 million ps3's in UK.
Uh... I'm pretty sure digital sales are never counted. Please take your ignorant sarcasm else where. Update - nice try. That article you linked me still proves that your sarcastic comment is completely ignorant. PC game sales are still strong.
kiddo, deal with it, PC gaming is DEAD.
lol PS1 gaming died before PC gaming died. N64 gaming died before PC gaming died. PS2 gaming died before PC gaming died. Xbox gaming died before PC gaming died. 360, wii and PS3 gaming will die before PC gaming will ever die. Deal with it. You're a PS3 supporter apparently, yet you're giving all of us other PS3 gamers a bad name.
Oh for the love of God, emil, just stop trying. You're using MW2 as an example of why PC gaming is dieing now? Really? Obviously you have absolutely no understanding of PC gaming at all. There's a reason why Bad Company 2 performed much better on the PC than the 360 and PS3 compared to MW2.
Hey emil, quit being a coward. I know you don't want everyone to see how much you are failing but please, no more PMs. It's no fun that way. :) And just to make you happy: "Interestingly, last we checked in, the highest percentage of that 2.3m are PC gamers... " http://www.neoseeker.com/ne...
i love the UK!!!
Dead Rising is not even worth it, crappy rehash game.
Thats what blows my mind they are soooo quick to point out the sales ratios but they totally neglect the ratio compared to the install bases of the respective platforms.. Just take EA for example, they make more money off of ps3 sales then they do 360 sales despite the 360 having a higher install base.. Wonder why this is?? Maybe because ps3 gamers are inundated with games that it usually takes a while for them to pick up a title.. I know for me I just spent 150 bucks on my move setup and I'm too busy with it to really care about dead rising 2.. May pick it up later but considering that Fallout new vegas, medal of honor, gran turismo 5, little big planet 2, enslaved odyssey to the west, and my god of war ghost of sparta psp bundle all come out within the next month and a half dead rising 2 has slid down my list of games I plan on buying..
no. they make more money because there's no(small) piracy on the PS3 and a whole lot on the xbox360.
Im pretty sure its a mixture of both.
Ea is playing psychological games with PS3 fanboys. The best way to get there negative image out of minds was to pamper it's enemies with love words and faulty info. I would never trust EA.
PS3 EDGE tools http://www.youtube.com/watc... tech demo done in two weeks - 720p, 1.4m polygons/PF at 60fps with AA. There's 768 people and 50 cars in the scene!
there are very few ps3 owners that want that piece of sht shovelware game when we have so many great option. we bought ps moves instead of that streets of rage/brute force rip off.by the way with nothing but dead rising coming out this month us ps owners still have too many options to be focused on that (should be a downloadable psn title) game what's next? a crackdown 2 game of the year nod??
PS3 has way less games then 360 and the only options are playing it with a move controller or waiting for all the announcements to get release dates.
Lmao yes because countless ps3 gamers around the world secretly desire, 4-5 yr old 360 games, you know the ones with bad optimization or were original xbox games thrown on the 360. There a couple i would like try, but really way less games(poor english), does anyone actually give a shit about most of them, i don't? Stupid 360 fanboy post.
Your comment still negates what I posted. There are many more 360 games on 360 that just are not on PS3. If you disagree with this your nothing more then a tool hiding behind a keyboard. "does anyone actually give a shit about most of them, i don't?" Maybe or maybe not but I tell you nobody cares about over half those PS3 games.
wait for Japan number's
Why, its a video game. DR2 is way more fun than the first one and oh the list of improvements they made on it are staggering. Sales wise, I don't get the whole, "OMG MY CONSOLE IS LOSING!!" debate - none of you work for Sony or Microsoft do you? and if so, leave nao!!
DR2 .. generic crap plus idiotic loading everywhere, PS2 is laughing its ass. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Bottom line this game should of remained 360 exclusive rather then trying to appeal to gamers with different taste who are graphics lovers and nothing more.
Yeah this is even stupider than your comment above, so if ps3 owners are only graphics lovers, why was mag roasted alive for it's "ps2 graphics" by 360 fanboys. So why are ps3 owners enjoying 3d game dot heroes, heavy rain isn't solely played for it's visuals, little big planet and mod nation racers say hello. Both sides will pull out graphics or gameplay if it suits their argument, shut up about ps3 owners being graphics lovers, they are no worse than 360 owners in the 1st-2nd yr of this gen. Because at the beginning of this gen 360 owners were all about omg gears 1's graphics are so much better than (insert sony exclusive). Then other 360 exclusives came out and the graphics didn't advance as much as 360 owners would have liked. Now ps3 exclusives started coming out with drastic graphics increases beyond what the 360's exclusives were showing. And countless 360 fanboys suddenly started downplaying the importance of graphics and talked a storm up about gameplay, ring a bell? So in closing idiot 360 fanboy, might want to take a better look at your own side, before you demonize ps3 gamers.
Stop whining like a big kid trying to get your pointless point across. You know exactly what I'm talking about so quit playing dumb.
uk gamers u retarded,.. more than half of you,.. thank god there is a 800 milions rest of us in europe,.. PLAYSTATION NATIONS get served ! who ever thinks xbox is a platform ,.. is mildly retarded I'm trolling ke ke kekeek he
Good to see the F1 game sell well I got it for my 360 and love it by far the best F1 game to date even beats the N64 F1 game I loved back in the day. Halo Reach sales still good and should be in the top 10 for a good few weeks if not until xmas. I am a bit shocked that GH sold more on the 360 than PS3 as the 360 tends to sell more RB than GH but im still waiting for RB3 as not a fan of GH my self.
Castlevania is more important than DR2 and as for F1 I dont want to buy a racing game with GT5 landing in a month's time. You know being short on cash kinda does this.
i see nothing that inspires me in this game having played the orignal dead rising. i expected better graphics. gameplay.maybe differnt places.good job i had a hunch this be bad one. and didnt buy.
