This week's official Xbox 360 software sales shows climbs for Halo: Reach - up from 20th to 12th - and Kinect Sports - up from 11th to sixth - with Portal 2, Mortal Kombat and Operation Flashpoint: Red River holding firm at first, second and third.
crappy shooter sells better on xbox 360 humph! Who cares?!
First PS3 game to sell 10 million is Black Ops.
How do you know it's crap? Reading a review isn't a good enough reason to fairly judge a game, as many people on N4G are quick to point out.
Why bother even responding to people with only one bubble?
thought it was a really good game
I've been playing it almost non-stop for the past two weeks. It makes a change from the linear CoD clones, which i'm really tired of.
Maby other gamers don't buy as many bad games? The previous operation flashpoint was only £18 on PC at launch and it was just a bad game in general, not worth £18.
Operation Flashpoint really hasn't been that great of a game since the early PC versions. It's a tired IP that needs to be forgotten about.
this actually makes sense since xbox has no exclusives games out right now, not trying to troll but it's the truth.
Yeah and the latest ps3 exclusive SOCOM 4 is all the way in 10th spot...on only its 2nd week out. . .on the ps3 chart. . .oh yeah, exclusives had alot to do with this/s
Or maybe because PSN has been down for nearly 2 weeks and people aren't going to buy online-enabled games they can't play online.
Socom has a campaign as well and it's better than the online portion. They jacked up the camera on this one. Kinda a big deal when you're trying to kill.
. ...how older games like Halo reach and Black ops are climbing the chart. It would appear that Microsoft could very well be cashing in on Sony's misfortune since new gamers to the system would be buying the older title's. It's also worth noting that Kinect, having moved so many consoles and bringing in a very casual demographic have spurred new gamers to try the hardcore title's...either way Microsoft must be happy with the numbers leading into E3 and their big guns like Gears and forza that are coming in the fall.
No surprise really 98% of cross platform games sell better on the 360 than the ps3 for some reason. Even when the 360 had a load of exclusive games last year the cross platform games still out sold the ones on the ps3. Good to see red river selling well after the last game was poor. Im abit shocked Portal 2 is selling better on the 360 though after the way they have been pushing the game on the ps3 of late. Its also good to see people are still picking games up as some games that came out last year that deserved good sales did not sell very well so I hope this year is not the same.
What did I miss. Who is selling red river? I thought it doesn't come out till June. Or are we talking pre orders? I'm confused. I thought Dragon rising was pretty good. Needed some tweeks but it was pretty good.
It released in Europe early. It doesn't release in the US until June, so its off to a good start it seems. Also I agree DR wasn't half as bad as some people made it out to be.
Must be nice to have it early. I'm looking forward to this game. Thanks for the heads up.
