Kill zone 3 broke all the records as 500,000 units are already sold worldwide in its first week for the PS3.
best fps this year!!!!
Even tho I'm a huge Killzone fan I've gotta say I have had the greastest time with the BF series and BF3 is absolutely the game I'm waiting for this generation to be serious.
FAKEcharts numbers, Killzone 3 sold more than 500,000 copies. Do not use FAKEcharts, as neogaf says: FAKEcharts gets its numbers from ioi's ass, the biggest 360 fanboy on this planet.
@ Istanbull Show us where you're getting your accurate numbers from that prove KZ3 sold more than 500,000 units.
There have been 436875 players online... So if you think just 13% of people didn't go online than there were 500,000k sales. If you think more than 13% of the people who bought KZ3 haven't got an internet connection or haven't played the game yet than it could be more than 500k sales. (+ take away the number of people who play on multiple account although I doubt there are many of them)
Sorry I can't take this article seriously simply because it's best source is VGChartz. This site is not recognized by Microsoft, Nintendo, or Sony. They're anti-Sony to the extreme. The took the same article Joystiq broke news on and ran with it. The article about Sony's Q2 slide mistake. Joystiq has updated and corrected the mishap immediately, yet VG247 remained blind to the fact.
Yep. This blog post was probably done by a high school student. "Kill zone 3 broke all the records." "Kill zone 3 will break all the previous records and become the most sold game but i think it is a rumor." I'm surprised this site doesn't come with a virus. Honestly, who approved this as credible news?
There have been several studies that show only about 23-25% of people who buy big name FPS games like Halo and CoD EVER go online. If 400K Killzone players have actually been online, that probably means KZ3 has sold at least 1M copies already, assuming most of the online players are also early purchasers.
@Gumtrol There are plenty of people who buy it once then let the rest of their family play on their own accounts.
best fps this year? Before getting ahead of ourselves, keep in mind that the Halo: CE remake and Battlefield 3 are coming out this year too.
We haven't even seen a trailer for a halo CE game, what the hell makes you think it will be coming out this year? Reach just came out bro
Here you go bro http://xbox360.gamespy.com/...
Resistance > Killzone.
@Wenis Your "source" say it's rumor and the crediting facts they point is MS don't have a Halo this year (LOLWUT? Should we expect yearly releases as a standard now?) and anniversary (again, should we expect remakes on all franchises making it to 5, 10 or 15 years from now on?). Stop spreading BS.
@ Trroy More then likely 23-25% of people who buy big name FPS games like Halo and CoD EVER play offline. I have so many friends that own CoD series and NEVER play the single player. They just buy the game for online. Not sure where YOU found these so called studies?
@gumtrol that's a lot of users online I never saw that many playing Black ops at once online after launch week. 360 was over 1 million but most of them were dirty pirates who didn't buy the game.
VGChartz numbers are made up, everyone knows that they're just "educated guesses", with GT5 they missed for about a million but, yes KZ3 is awesome, it starts a little slow but then it gets brilliant, in particular the jetpack levels
"they're just "educated guesses", with GT5 they missed for about a million" There's nothing educated about it; they are just plain old guesses!
i still have to get it but i am so strapped for cash now.
yep killzone 3 best fps, then battlefield 3 comes out, don't mention crysis or homefront as best fps please, they will be good, but not best
Lol, it is obviously a matter of pc fanboy getting mixed here... KILLZONE IS BY FAR THE BEST FPS EXCLUSIVE ON CONSOLES, no on pc obviously, pc blow us off, but kilzzone rape xbox off lol
Unless you count reviews, metacritic, or generally anything that has contact with life outside the Sony bubble.
Its Killzone NOT Kill Zone.
Amazing how much hype Bulletstorm had and it launched the same time as Killzone 3 and on all 3 platforms but STILL killzone 3 managed to outsell it.
Kz3 is the most dissapointing game of 2011 imo. I don't play online but the sp was very bad. The story was boring and the graphics did not live up to kz2 which I liked. Bs I enjoyed for thetr story and gameplay was also fun. Gamestop is offering 50% trade tilll Sunday towards home fron which I have ordered on my 360. I can't trade kz 3 fast enough. Maybe the 360 is just better with the pad for shooters but this game was horrible. I could not even finish it and I love fps shooters. This is not about console allegiance just my opinion so don't call me a fanboy
jazz your a fanboy
I have to agree with Jazz on this one, killzone for me is one of the worst playstation exclusives, but fanboys hype every ps3 exclusive.
But until I see other FPS releasing this year (Crysis 2, Rage, BF3) I wouldn't count it as the best FPS this year. To be honest, I felt the only thing this game had going on is the engine, setpieces and sound. Full of style yet no substance. Just finished Veteran and now planning to finish it up with the Elite mode. -End statement
Aww...what happened to "End of Line"?? I used to like that :)
"I felt the only thing this game had going on is the engine, setpieces and sound." Please, play online, it more than makes up for the disappointingly short story,
Online is solid but they removed a lot of features that made KZ2's online issues great. For starters, the recoil wasn't as apparent in KZ2, hold the trigger on that M2 and you'd be spraying all over the damn place. Not so in this game. To be honest, I really missed the first time KZ2 online was launched WITHOUT the high-precision aiming. A lot players tend to stick together at that time. Oh, they should bring back CUSTOM matchmaking. Meanwhile, I'll try to spend more time in KZ3 online though, I wanna level up so I can play warzone and operations with a better skillset. @egidem I'm trying to find something new with my tagline, but I'll do this for you just this once. -End of line
I have to agree, they made the online much more accessible for COD players, however i do not know why they saw the need to remove so much features, such as Custom matchmaking. However i am sure they are going to patch up all the main flaws in online, and it is still a lot of fun.
mw3 will be the best or the new halo or battlefield 3
You lost all credibility at the beginning of your statement. That is, when you said MW3 would be the best FPS. Battlefield I agree on, however.
Duplicate article: http://n4g.com/news/711231/... Plus they're only a guess/estimate/hits magnet. Not to mention, this article disgustingly poorly written. And if 500K was indeed correct, "most selling game of 2011 till now" would be quite false.
IYO probably. But in mine, no. It could of been but Resistance 3 looks to really entice me and Brink looks great too.
So they say that it broke all the records with 500,000 sold in one week, then in the SAME ARTICLE it states "The previous Killzone game on PS3, Killzone 2 released in 2009 and sold 750,000 units week one for the PS3." Makes you kind of laugh at how stupid this article is... saying it broke records then submitting evidence that it didn't even beat it's prior version of the game in sales it's first week. Failure article... once again, submitting EVERY article about a product does not help it out. Think before you submit these types of flame bait articles.
Quoting on fake numbers that will make what you want to say credible. /s
And the best FPS 2005-2011
Great game, will keep me busy until BF3.
KZ is a cool game and i know its off topic but NF3 on the PC will own everything.
NF3 ?.. I writed the name in google and saw Guitar -Honda- motherboard - wheel - chess and other weird stuff , what's this game ?... not trolling or anything , seriously >.<
Ohh sorry i meant BF3 i haven't had my morning coffee yet sorry about that lol Not sure who disagreed with you everything you said was correct WTF is NF3 its nothing lol its a typo i don't understand people sometimes.
lol i owned a ps3 already and decided my best course of action would be to buy a killzone 3 ps3 bundle and now i have to ps3's and killzone 3 :D
sorry i meant 2
Rented this to try it with the move. It works pretty well just having it sit next to me on the couch like a mouse.
I played through the single player using Move no problem but playing with it online is just not as competative as a DS3.
i tried using it during the beta, didn't like it in MP but single player is fun, especially stabbing with the move for melee, I wish MAG would do a bot thing so you can actually learn the controls instead of going real time
I've been doing WAY better with it than the DS3. Coming from PC fps's I always hated the game pad though. Felt like the character was submerged in water.
agree :) @rankftw it works good in the multiplayer and i even can be the first with ps move...
I've seen a lot of people trading in Killzone 3 already. So much so one store wouldn't take anymore today. If you're thinking about trading it, do it now while you get a decent price as soon there will be thousands of pre owned Killzone 3 in shops.
ACE nice troll attempt. LOL we got to much in today we won;t except anymore. I worked at a gamestop back in the day and if we got too much of a game we sent them out. so your story telling is BS
I am still waiting to recive my kz3 helghast edition from the customs but as far as I could see this game is a lot easier then kz2. Other then that and the lack of online coop kz3 rules. Just wondereing if it will beat in salles other ps3 exclusives this year.
Everybody check out Brink, tell me what you think, when it rhymes you know it's good.
Im a huge killzone 3 fan but why the fuck can't sony make this game sell over 1-3million in week one..Halo reach sold over 4million in week one. Sony is strange sometimes, They just sit there ass down and not market there games like they are supposed to..Killzone 3 should have had a super bowl add but they did not do it.And sony has the money to market well. Any way as a gamer sales do not matter to me but i just find it amazing how sony cannot get there shit right and market there games well.
Well, MS has Halo and Sony has GT. But I agree that Sony should market their games better.
its not just marketing it demographics rough numbers sony has sold 40 million ps3s not everyone want to buy shooters assume 25% are hardcore shooter fans 10 million out of those about half will be brand loyalists and only want to play cod leaving 5 out of this 5 million its split between those who want other games bf3 or homefront rather then jump onto any game that comes along 1-3 million will buy kz3 at somepoint just not on day one conversely the xbox has a higher draw rate to shooters with halo and gears being the primary exculsives about 50% of the install base will buy shooters. halo sells because its got a huge fanbase ready to jump sony doesnt there console has many more genres for people to play ratehr then just one or 2 major ones
Also, Sony do tend to put more money into first party studios that marketing, I wont complain. Not to mention they a big player in many markets. I bet advertising KZ3 (agressively) is a bit pointless compared to advertising the next TV etc.
dude stop making excuses they even had a fantastic bundle with the game and the 160 gig playstaiton for $299.00
So, how many games does MS go ape over advertising? Let's see Gears and Halo. Well if that were the case for Sony they would do it. Sony relies on multiple exclusives while MS really only a few. Did Forza get the treatment or Fable? What about Blue Dragon or Lost Odessy? If MS didn't advertise the crap out of Halo no would know what the Xbox was. PS was already planted as the video game console, and MS needed a way to steal some of that so they went ape and mainstreamed these two games. That is really all they have. Sony doesn't need to waste copious amount of money to advertise their games because they have so many of them
Agree with you that a super bowl ad would have been useful. But why bother, let others play sales, I will play the game. Awesome multiplayer and the single-player is so underrated, its a blast to play through.
This is a stupid argument... Hello this is HALO... ya know that game that was the sole reason the original xbox was actually a success, the game that is the only reason the 360 got the go ahead. The Killzone franchise as we know it now began at Killzone 2, its great but one of MANY young sony franchises. MS put all their eggs in one basket with Halo because they know that Halo defines the xbox brand. Killzone 3 will sell amazingly well just like last time. Halos sales are phenomenal but that does not mean anything that sells less is an instant flop, because that would be 99% of other games.
The reason it doesn't do insanely well sales wise is that it is not a household name like Halo and Call of Duty. At the same time Killzone didn't really get any recognition until Killzone 2, which came out while the market was saturated with other FPSs. On a side note I enjoy the fanbase being the size it is. I went with a friend to the midnight release of Halo: Reach and it was absolutely packed... mostly with 14 year olds with their moms but there were a still a few chill guys there. The Killzone 3 release I went to was maybe a dozen guys.
agreed also players with move are lethal friend got 22-3 i was astonished im not playing against him him ever
Well, I just think Halo is more is a bigger name. Everybody knows what Halo is, while some have never heard of Killzone. Regardless of which game is actually better, Halo will sell more. I do an after school program with kids and you mention Halo and they all know what it is. (Call of Duty as well) I have mentioned Killzone and Gears of War and they all say "What is that?". Im not saying anything about which is better, as I personally like Killzone and Gears better than Halo. So kids know CoD and Halo and will beg there parents to get them, whereas they dont even know Killzone and Gears even came out.
u must try this game it is awesome! Hooked on mp and i usually hate online play.
I don't play online at all.....just not for me....prefer good old single player mode.
lol.... 360 gamers r still cares about sales!!!!! that is really sad...
Literally it is all they have. @ below we don't care we just stop by and look at the pathetic comments. Keep on hating virgins.
