I expected top 5 for ME2.

But congrats MediaMolecule: awesome LBP2 position :)

So did I o.O

They were both released at the exact same time, so it was a tough decision for PS3 gamers.

Mind you, I wonde what the PS3 charts are like, as thats the "All Formats" chart.

@Cratos8780 Ouch. Many Mass Effect fans wont like what you just said xD

@Ryudo Im sorry to say, but there are sooooo many big releases out this year (Mass Effect 3, Uncharted 3, Portal 2, Killzone 3, Gears of War 3) so im afraid I can't see LBP2 getting game of the year.

Ryudo2645d ago

To be honest if little big planet 2 wins game of the year this year then yeah it can be spoke of in the same league as Mass Effect 2, if it doesn't I will mark it down to console biased.

LBP2 is insane

As for ME2, there are a lot of dual console or pc owners out there that already played it. And it still appeared to sell well.

I'm actually a bit behind on games with Sly Collection, Brutal Legend, GoWI & II Collection, Tomb Raider: Underworld, etc just sitting there waiting to be played. So I can't rebuy ME2 yet to see the PS3 changes.

It wasn't that tough of choice for most PS3 people I think. ME2 is good and all but it is old news compared to LBP2.

RedDragan2645d ago

I have not seen a single LBP2 advert on TV. This is a bleeding good effort to get to No. 1!!!

My niece and nephew have the LBP cotton figures... my sisters had no idea it was a game lol... I just showed them the dolls on Play.com and they wanted them for the kids! Now one of them has bought one for herself, it sits on the boot shelf in her car looking out at people behind her! XD

Marquis_de_Sade2645d ago

You haven't seen a single LBP2 advert on TV?! The other week I was watching a few programmes sponsored by LBP2, so commercials for the game either side of the break.

Istanbull2645d ago

Bb bbu but PS3 gamez dont haz the sellsz!!!

RedDragan2645d ago

Nah afraid not, kinda gutted as well because I loved the Cullan Family and Janice adverts for the first game lol!!

I thought mass effect would do better too. But I wonder how many downloaded it. That could be some big numbers for downloads too. Just started playing mass effect 2, wow that game is awesome. first day already 6 hours into it LOL

Cyrax_872645d ago

Not surprised from LBP2, the 1st one sold over 4.5 million copies.

lelo2play2645d ago (Edited 2645d ago )

Good numbers for LBP2...

Where is DC Universe?

EDIT: full top 40 individual chart

a well-deserved topping of the charts, knocking off Black Ops in the process. Shame about Mass Effect 2 though, I'd imagine Bioware would be slightly disappointed with that chart placement. It should have done better.

Zir02645d ago (Edited 2645d ago )

Kinect Sports still in the top 10 very nice.

People should also note ME2 also includes the PC and 360 versions in this chart which makes it even more disappointing for the PS3 version.

digitalivan2645d ago

"Kinect Sports still in the top 10"
And this is what's disappointing for Xbox.

worldgames2645d ago

Bub for you man that made me laugh.

ps3360games2645d ago

the more casual games are sold the less core games are made

m23452645d ago (Edited 2645d ago )

trolololololol.

this isn't about kinect or kinect sports.

ipe2645d ago

i refuse to pay 40 pounds for ME2, 1 year old game, i dont care about dlc which should have been in game in first place. I remember last year 360 version received price cut month after release to something like 24 pounds. Im waiting that most likely.

congrats lbp2

chad22hkd2645d ago (Edited 2645d ago )

i can see why your mad dude, but really mass effect 2 is one awesome game. If your into rpgs, action shooters you should still consider it. But man lbp2 is awesome also, wow so many great games, so little time LOL

Prcko2645d ago

who the hell cares about ME2 when you have awesome ps3 exclusive to buy!
gz lpb!!!

Marquis_de_Sade2645d ago

Who cares? Perhaps PS3 only owners who haven't had the chance to play one of the greatest games this generation?
