VGChartz.com is reporting the Microsoft 360 exclusive (Gears Of War 2) has now sold over 6 million units Worldwide.
not bad,but i am not suprised,we are in shooter generation!
It would be awesome if Gears Of War was ported to the ps3. Looking at all the gameplay videos, it looks super fun
Your really skint, I can't understand why you don't get a 2nd hand 360 with both Gears games, it would cost under £100 for the lot, and you'd have a blast, both are amazing games.
R U 4 Real ? Jesus... http://n4g.com/news/679251/... Personally...I prefer GeoW to GeoW 2 on my 360... EDIT: @Unless Exactly what I did a year and a half ago, only to find out the console was modded and I suffered the ban hammer a month later.. (not in that order) M$ made a cheap $85 oz of me.. Now as ever, my 360 is waiting for the SP of GeoW3,, unless its on Windows...
@Turkish theres no ps3 exclusives that will see numbers like GTA San Andreas (20 million) or GT3 (18 million) in lifetime total software.
ps3 has something better uncharted
what? don't compare games please. Both are them are fun, there is no "better" games
@ps3360games You just contradicted yourself you just said uncharted is better. I prefer gears over uc doesnt mean one is better than the other, but i do think each one has its strengths over the other.
@jezuz gears2 is pretty... ok. I enjoyed gears1 and would say it's an 8/10 game but I couldn't get round to finishing gears2. You're not really missing out much dude there are better 3rd person shooters out there especially on ps3. ____________ Sony 'til I die
I can't believe Gears of War 2 is still selling it's over 2 years old. Good for it though. It's a great game.
GFWL has Gears of War as a downloadable title, and I wouldn't be surprised if they bring Gears 2 to GFWL.
Horde mode is brilliant
Oh hell yeah!! That ALONE makes 2 better than 1... I can't believe some people claim 1 is better with a really abysmal campaign to go. It just feels like they just suddenly got it in the 2nd game and made the game play much faster paced and satisfying whereas in the 1st you had to stick to cover and pop up and down, rinse and repeat.
Exactly why I can't wait for Beast Mode!!
Im glad.... but still. VGChartz.
VG Chartz does not quote sources and estimates the numbers extrapolated from small retail samples. To give you an idea .. this is like me saying if you walked in and bought 3 copies of Little Big Planet 2 at one gamestop and 5 at another, it'd say 4 sold, and then never tell you where they got that information. They are completely untrustworthy and full of utter bullshit. You can read more as to why you shouldn't trust VGChartz for anything, here: http://www.gamasutra.com/ph... Trust me, it's worth a read. Inform yourself, or be ignorant to the truth, the choice is yours.
Amazing game. It deserves this. It's one of my favorite campaigns in history. ^_^
And u still hear haters calling it glitches of war.. :|
A lot of PS3 games deserve to sell just as many copies. I hope Gears 3 is a great title especially as they will have more funds to develop it. I'd love to see a Gears of War 1-on-1 fighter with all gears characters from the series, on the unreal engine. WOuld like to see the team do a puzzler too. I bet they have loads of ideas for this sort of stuff too.
Yes ps3 games deserve to sell like 360 games but the fact is that it will not.Look at uncharted 2 it has sold only 3million plus copies, i know 3million plus are very good numbers but a game like that should break the 5million plus range,the same goes with killzone 2.The only ps3 exclusive that has sold over 5million is mgs4 and gt5.Even god of war 3(which is my best game this gen) did not sell 5million plus. killzone 2 should b doing halo numbers but it dose not. And it still baffles me how sony dose not like to market there games as hard as ms dose. And u still hear ps3 fan boys shouting glitches of war.Im pretty sure those 6million people like glitches then lol... Im one of the 6million who bought this game and i luv it.I cant wait for gears 3.
-3 millions only for uncharted? -and for that matter its well over 5 millions, check NPD numbers just for usa
1 Year Uncharted 2 did 3.7 million, this Gears chart of 6 million is after 2 years. Uncharted 2 has not gone budget yet. I assume a couple of million more for 2011, for new comers to jump on the Uncharted 3 hype.
i honestly dont think its how they market there games as i have seen just as many commercials for ps3 games in the past years as 360 commercials. i think its honestly they are releasing too many games and people are getting which ever game appeals to them. on 360 you usually have 1 blockbuster hit in the spring and 1-2 in the fall so of course they are gonna sell more since theres only 2 to choose from. like gears 3 is gonna sell like crack cause the only other game coming out during that time as of what we know for 360 is the next call of duty which will also sell like crack. or another explanation is there are no exclusives per say coming out in the first half of the year and there are only 2 titles coming out in the second half. compared to sony which usually releases 10 games just like that and if you have the money u will buy it.
uncharted 1 and 2 maybe at 3.7 in usa but not uc2
I enjoyed UC 1 & 2, infamous a pleasant suprise, God of War 3 was a great game but MGS4 was tripe in my opinion... maybe I didn't get into it but I will be carefull with MGS Rising. Fingers crossed Bulletstorm will be great. I am hating the DLC crap between console to be honest, I support both but we are being double-dipped with the DLC characters for MK and MVC3. I also didn't like Killzone 2, but loved Resistance 2... was a gem in the rough. I suppose its a mix-n-match but some games on PS3 deserve more sales and Xbox too. I got hooked on Banjo Kazooie and spent far too much time playing Bioshock, again and again (1 not 2) so Infinate should be great. Hoipefully Gears 3 sets the bar high again :)
normal but i am surprised that a title like this took this long to reach those numbers.
Good numbers for gears love the games and looking forward to gears 3 looking like its going to be the best sofar.
It is great sales, just thought it was like 11 million, only because 360 fanboys say Uncharted 2 doing 4 million (rounded from 3.7 million or whatever they announced) was "bad".
uncharted 2 sold 4 million
vg chatz is not reliable source... and lol GT5 already surpasss this sales..
Call Of Duty sold more than any PS3-360 exclusive to date
SilverSlug Uncharted 2 launched with bigger install base comparison to Gears of War 2 back in 2008
As a Gears fan looking back... Gears 2 was a pretty big disappointment. I think I quit playing a week or two after I bought it when I was playing the original for months. Congrats on the 6 million sold but it truthfully didn't deserve it. The original deserved it. 3 hopefully will deserve it.
i think UC3 might outsell GOW3 ......no flame bait but seriously look at how popular UC has becom UC2 sold over 4.5 million .... and uc3 is the most anticipated game ov 2011 ... look at gt5 already past5.5 million
WTF it had guns attached to chainsaw or vice versa i'll stick to halo reach
Nice, I got the limited Edition Gears 2 back when it originally came out, Golden Lancer and all. I'm sure even more copies will sell with that new Combo pack for $29.99 coming out. Two Gears games and all the DLC for that price is too cheap to pass up for new comers. Already pre ordered the Epic Edition of BulletStorm as well, wanna get in that Gears 3 Beta for sure. I didn't buy into the hype of "Next generation gaming" until I saw Gears Of War, that was when I knew I needed to have an XBox 360. Haven't looked back since! Congrats Epic and MS and to all us Gears fans!
You know I like 360, its a solid system great online, but Gears just doesnt do it, its too slow.
im starting to think that the only reason the sony faithfuls harp on exclusives so much is because the PS3 normally looses out on multiplats against the 360, wether its performance or online it favors the 360,an they got nothing else to hol on to. so with that being said they hate multiplats an love exclusives.. the biggest selling games this gen on both systems have been multiplats, so that shows you the power an importance of 3rd party none exclusive games.now if those exclusive games where games that people really couldnt do without, they would sell like hot cakes.. sony has sold you guys on gigs an resolution an not fun, all you guys talk about is HOW GOOD killzone2-3,uncharted 2-3,GT5 an GOW3 LOOKS an not how much fun you had playing those games.an thats the problem..wheres the FUN. i have 2 of all 3 systems an i have WAY more FUN on my 360, granted its because of XBL which i pay for but i just enjoy the 360 better, last gen my PS2 couldnt catch a break even though i had an xbox 1, i just had MORE FUN on my PS2..
wow 6 million? this is why ted price is an EA partner! Everybody wishes to have these numbers! & it's harder when you develope an exclusive to reach these sales! but then again gow2 is exclusive.. hmm! Gears 3 will sell like P***y..
How is it that I come into a 360 article and read more comments about uncharted? Ps3 fanboys need to grow up, stop being so insecure and just enjoy your games.
i hear you man, im getting fuking sick of all this uncharted bs. from the constant babble of ps3 fanboys mentioning uncharted2 in every single article over the past year all because it happened to win GotY to the guaranteed top 3 articles being uncherted3 related these days. i know you ps3fannies would love to try and bash me for not having a ps3/UC2 but i do
I agree. Ps3 owners bitch more about the 360's faults than the actual 360 owners. So Fanboys....shut up and play the fucking games you assholes brag about...now if you'll excuse me...I have games to play.
Good numbers cant wait for gears 3 this year
Why do you people still post this crap? vgchartz is completely fake.
I love looking at the people who disVG Chartz comments because every single one of them has been 'Disagreed' with at least twice. Looks like VG Chartz is trying to protect what little integrity they have by erasing the truth.
