It came out on the DS too?

ijkabob2843d ago

And there going to include that in the sales numbers? Really?

Smacktard2843d ago

Of course it did. It came out on every frigging system available. I'm pretty sure I saw a copy for Microwaves and another one for Toasters at Wal-Mart the other day.

SixZeroFour2843d ago

dont forget the copy for ovens...that ones a hit for the parents

7th doesn't sound really impressive :S

i wonder who's number 6,5,4,3,2 and 1.

sleepy32843d ago (Edited 2843d ago )

7th of ALL TIME not impressive? You are hard to impress my friend, lol.

Off the top of my head, above it will be
wii fit
mario 3
new super mario bros DS
Mario Kart wii
Modern Warfare 2
and i THINK san andreas.

The original half-life sits at 9+ million retail sales.

Half-Life2's retail sales are 6.5 million

Considering those numbers don't account for steam sales... I'd say, those two games would be on the list.

However, the numbers in the IGN article are for US only. Whereas the ones I mentioned are worldwide I think.

Its not total sales, just sales after the first month.

list of best selling games

number 2 is Super Mario Bros. – 40.24 million

number 1 is Wii Sports – 41.65 million units

how much did black ops sell 8.4 million so far ? i don't see how its the 7th best selling game ever :S that would kinda be a lie.unless I'm completely wrong.maybe if its sales keep up and i don't think it will because a new one comes out every year people will drop black ops and stop buying it and buy mw3/the next cod game.

lol, thats not even a game just a gimmick. It just feels like a product you would find on QVC or HSN. Its for soccer moms.

SixZeroFour2843d ago

theonlylolking2843d ago

NOOOO!!! There are so much more games that deserve those kinds of sales.

scar202843d ago

But majority are little kids.

Mystogan2843d ago

Us console gamers, yes ps3 360 and Wii should unite and stop buying call of duty.

I agree it does not deserve those kinds of sales.

spunnups2843d ago

After playing it for awhile, it's fun, but I don't think this franchise deserves the hype nor the sales it gets. .

pixelsword2843d ago

World of Warcraft did pretty good as well.
