"Overview – 2 games are in their final week before release. One game is over 1 million pre-orders, 4 games are over 500,000 pre-orders and 13 games are over 100,000 pre-orders. The Black Ops versus Modern Warfare 2 race is heating up."
Ps3 - Gran Turismo 5 - 225,509 (Preorders) Xbox 360 - Kinect Adventures - 176,814 (Preorders) WOW...Preorders for Gran Turismo 5 in America just Lame...
225,509 pre-orders in TOTAL for GT5? I knew it..gamers this gen are much different than gamers last gen. This gen is much more shooter/action oriented. Sony needs to start actually marketing GT5. I haven't seen a single ad.
So no, preorders not in TOTAL.
Really? Explain GTP sales then. You know, the game that was called a glorified demo. GT5 will easily pass the 5 million mark. What it does beyond that only time will tell but I'm sure people will still find an excuse to say even that isn't enough, a joke, or some lame excuse to mock it. I mean we all know sales equal everything. That is why most N4G members prefer the Wii most of all. Oh wait. /s
Not like short life Halo. People will buy GT5 in 2010,2011,2012.. until The arrival of GT6
It says "AMERICA'S PREORDERS" this game has way more preporders than blacks ops or any game about to release in Europe, I think it would easily sell 3 millions copies in the first day. 2 millions in Europe and 1 million in US
That's not it dude Racing games do NOT interest people as much anymore like they use too...FPS and RPGs are just taking over the gaming world...Hell not many people even ATTEMPT to make many racing games anymore, no one wants to even give them a chance even if they are good...Need for speed is even dieing, Burn out basically died, Nascar was big on like 4 years ago now close to dead I could go on no racing game sales have been impressive Forza was okay. I'm one of those people who just does not car for racing games anymore, And I LOVED Grand Turismo I still have the first one for PS1, right next to me, lol. Anyways, Fable III sales are GREAT even beating Fallout on ps3 sales and many other games, Pre-Ordered it myself!
regardless of preorders. Personally I only know one gamer that preorders games. Most of my friends just walk into the store and pick up the title they want day. I have yet to not be able to pick up any game I wanted release day this generation.
That number is pathetic because pre-orders of GT5 prologue were over a million -( http://www.vg247.com/2008/0... ) So what does that say about having competition in the way - Black-Ops pre-orders are over a million on xbox and over half a million on PS3.. Hence, the real reason why they pushed the launch of GT5 back - http://forums.n4g.com/Final... .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
That article writes about 1 million preorder IN EUROPE.
Yes, tundra I know, I was just showing you how demand for GT5p was when it was coming out.. -super huge as compared to GT5 I have yet to hear about anywhere (US, Europe, Japan) having close to a million pre-orders for GT5... So you can see the difference this time around, yes we are in a tougher market because of the economy slow down, but also having a huge game like Black-ops coming out near your game can't help matters. Especially when the average consumer buys one game, and then waits a month or two to buy their next game. Which is why I think they really pushed it back, shooting for closer to Christmas release, should give GT5 a much better launch, making it in much higher demand and becoming the must have present for the holidays. Hell pushing it back to around Christmas surely can't hurt sales. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
It was a glorified demo. And at 40 bucks a pop, it should have sold alot more than it did. This is not ps2 era buddy, let it go. Hey the Past just called, it wants to know why you still like living in it
Sweet Jesus, I cannot wait for this game to pass the 10 million mark- maybe even 15 million so we can all look back and laugh at all you doubters.
Black Ops is gonna be HUGE
Sadly, you are right. Keep on being mindless retards as you always have been, America.
No need to unfair generalizations.
Am i right?
Nope, that would be fanboys in denial that can't accept that those games are crap. @coolbeans Hm, you're right. ..The majority of America, then?
I buy I game I enjoy it I buy the next game I enjoy it. Arghhhhhh the logic makes no sense :D All the COD hate just sounds like sour grapes to me. Its like that just becuse they don't enjoy it, then nobody else should either. Stop telling people how to think and get on with your life instead of crying over a game.
So...only America buys COD games? Seems like America isn't the only country to have mindless retards running their mouths.
thers alot of ....bear named guys on this site, and the one thing they all have in common is they are always butthurt about something. Im not buying BO anytime soon but its funny to see you cry over estimated preorders. Blaming America is funny when COD is the biggest seller in Europe too.
I guess the millions of people buying COD in Europe are all idiots too and their respected countries are just as dumb? Moron. If you don't like COD, then that's fine. Yet, you look like the "retard" when you come in here all defensive attempting to belittle COD and the people who play it. Grow up, you sound like a bitter pre-teen.
No real surprises here. GT5 is going to be a system seller if it can ship before Black Friday.
....just like LBP, Uncharted, MGS4, GOW3, Heavy Rain.... Other than bundles, it won't make much of an impact on hardware....as proven by previous "system sellers" on PS3. Considering how long GT5 has been in the works, and how they've teased it for a "holiday releases" for the past couple years now...anyone who really wanted GT5, likely already has a PS3. The only reason the 360 saw a hardware increase for Reach, is because of the new "S" model, and the HR bundle ; PS3 Slim is old news.
Yeah, same story different game.
Yeah and about 40mln of ppl just bought it for new Assasin Creed or Ridge Racer You are idiot. Every game of those are system sellers. When you buy PS3 you think Uncharted, GT5, GOW etc and when you buy X360 Gears, Halo That is a definition of system seller.
Expected more for TFU2 and GT5 :(
Diablo III - no release date in sight and making its way up the charts..awesome!
Off Topic, Where are the Fallout New Vegas reviews?
ends on the games release day, oct 19th
Who cares about the amount of pre orders a game has accumulated. What interests me is the quality of the game, and how it impacts me as a gamer. How many pre orders did Shadow of the Colossus have, how many did Demons Souls have? Who cares, those games are masterpieces.
This site is in love with pre-orders and sales. Fanboys on both sides going at it... this is the battle ground
Pre order figures are a statistic/preview on how widely a product is accepted by the public. Not everyone pre-orders, and there are day 1/post launch purchasers still out there. What is good to know when seeing these figures is that if you're for example, a PC gamer, is that you're not alone playing this game and there are at least 128,000+ who share your interest. If the figures are for North America alone, then Xbox has the biggest demographic of fans of the series for that region. PS3 and PC figures are not bad either. I didn't pre-order for the PC but I will be a Day One buyer for this game. let us not also forget there is the UK and Australia/NZ market to consider. Point is, this game is a success sales wise and this is an incentive to develop a new game for Fallout.
or it is cheaper. Most the times i just go in an buy it on release day.
it's a proven indication of what the anticipation factor of the title is and yeah it's just the u.s but u.s is the biggest market so obviously it will be looked at more closely. The united states is the only market that doesn't need the others to be considered a success you can't sell 200,000 a week in any other market. The u.s when it comes to sales is espected to be looked at the most, they have the biggest sales in everything.
Did expect GT5 pre-orders in US to be a million. Well - whatever. Pre-ordered my copy. Now release the thing please!!!
