Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski is aiming high for Gears of War 3′s sales, and feel a pre-holiday release could help.
I have a feeling it might hit 4 million copies and go down really slow from there
Gears 3 should sell at least 6 million. After playing the beta and putting more time into that than most retail games I own, they can count +1 sale. It was solid and most importantly lag free and fun. If Gears 3 didn't have a campaign, I would buy it full price. It's the highest compliment I can give considering I rarely play online multiplayer. Edit: Guess my numbers were wrong. Cry me a river.
how would those numbers add up the story says that Gears 1 and 2 sold 12 million, 5 million for game 1 and less for game 2 is like 9 million
passed 6 million but you are blind
You guys must of forgotten the many other games that are coming out this holiday. I'm just saying sheesh
It's out september, it's one of the first big hitters for after summer
I like good graphics in my games.
Then you should like this game :)
they can count me in. day one buy for me
6 million likely, 7 million possible, 8 million very unlikely, 10 million gears doesnt do halo numbers.
It should easily considering the last 2 sold that many and now their are many more 360's out in the wild.
Put me down for one....
It will easily reach that number without a doubt.
I own a 360 JUST because of Gears 3. It BETTER be good!
I can see this seeing very well but I just hope Halo CEA dose not affect its sales as the Halo name is bigger. Ill be getting this on day one though really liked MP and this is one side I never got into on Gears 1 and 2 but I was impressed with the beta and really enjoyed the mp.
I don't think it will. You need cash to do that, I think this is US sales only isn't it?
I say it will do the numbers as MS will get out the old advertising check book.
Considering Gears 2 sold around 2 million day one, I dont think gears 3 will have such a big problem hitting 6million... unless ofcourse the Halo remake and the other AAA multiplats eat away on sales. Hopefully MW3 will not affect GeoW3 sales.
Anyone who played the beta knows that 10 million is more than possible. I plan on getting the Gears Xbox and a copy of the game for my nephew day 1. I know some friends that have Gears 3 reserved but not MW3 because they loved the beta even though they are ever bigger COD fans. Gears is in it's own lane...I hope the fans of this franchise can help push it pass 10 and beyond...it deserves to be up there with Halo and the rest!!
Agreed man, Gears and CoD need to swap sales figures.
Well Gears 1 sold over 6 million copies on P.C. and Xbox 360. Gears 2 sold over 6 million strictly on the Xbox 360. I believe they are both closer to 7 million apiece now due to the Gears Triple pack that released earlier this year. Now with all the new Xbox 360's out there and the fact that this game gets it's own limited edition Xbox 360 bundle and with all the hype and press and with that amazing beta...I can see it easily getting between 6-9 million in sales.
