Top 5:- 1- Gears of War 3 (Xbox 360) 2- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Xbox 360) 3- Battlefield 3 (Xbox 360) 4- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Playstation 3) 5- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Xbox 360)
Gears 3, Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3 in the top 3. And we wonder why devs don't give us more new IP's
If there's no new IP's to pre-order how are they ever going to take the top spots?
rAge? Its in the list but nowhere near the top. Last Guardian? New IP right there.
do people need new ip's all the time? not changing the style of play!
@Newleaf, actually your top 18 are all sequels off that chart. I say Dues Ex Revolution isn't only because its been so long it feels like a new IP. But reality is... sequels to "Good" franchises get remade. I know it sucks for new IP, but on the up side...you are getting highly polished experiences (for the most part).
SKYRIM NUMBER ONE
What is shocking to me, is that the only exclusives I see on pre-order are Gears and Uncharted (PS3/360). Next is that Skyrim is not charted for PS3 pre-orders. You guys do know that there is free stuff to be had for pre-ordering Skyrim right?
Uncharted is a Playstation franchise noob. Not multiplatform. Make the correction. :)
@DFresh either he changed hes comment after you corrected him or what hes saying and what i'm seeing makes sense to me O.o
danm,uuc3 pre-ordrs is low numbers.sad this..
Wow, 4 out of the top 5 are on 360, 8 out of the top 10 on 360, Gears3 has over twice as many as the #2 game MW3. 360 fanbase seems to get unfair criticism for their love of shooters, but the ps3 fanbase for all their talk seems to prefer shooters just as much, proofs in the pudding with once again MW3 and BF3 the top games on ps3, also note that Skyrim, AC Revelations, ME3(my favorite) all of different genre's are #5,6, and 7 in the top 10 on the 360. Wow, its been a rather dry first half of the year for 360, so its good to see alot of great games starting this fall through rest of the year, looks like owners of either console have a wide variety to look forward to, owners of both= gaming bliss. I sure hope Batman AC moves higher on that list, at least higher than NCAA Football #23454.
i think now we are into such a critical time of consoles where both console have strong fan base and both are 5-6 years into cycle that now its the time for established games and sequels don't expect a lot of new Ips now is the time for publishers to make money on their established and growing fan base last guardian agent xcom(since its been so long) rage insomniac's new game heavy rain's sequel or david cage's new game sucker punch's new IP GG games new IP after kz3 bungie's new game well we will get some new Ips but most of them will be sequels and what's up with each game series being a trilogy
All I know is that according this chart, DICE better damn well be on top of their Xbox 360 game for Battlefield 3, because it seems that the "Shooter Box" crowd, who are more "immature" than the Sony crowd, are rising to the occasion of supporting Battlefield 3 far faster than their PS3 brethren.
We have other games to play . For me: resistance 3, then uncharted 3, then twisted metal. Lol @ disagree/s. Enjoy your 1 game sorry if i got multiple games I want to play that are my preference
Really bro? You seem to be speaking for yourself as your fellow PS3 brethren seem to want Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Both systems have plenty to choose from beyond BF3 killerhog. Gears, Forza, Skyrim, Batman, Rage, MW3, Withcer 2... And plenty more. Ditch the fanboy speak and just be happy we all will have plenty to play this holiday.
i'll be enjoying tons of games later this year. And i only own a xbox360 now. Like someone above me said: Skyrim Forza Battlefield 3 Modern warfare 3 Gears of war 3 Halo Ace Combat Not to mention the tons of games everyone can play for amazingly low prices on steam, just look at the current sales! They are amazing.
of course im speaking about myself and my other ps3 brethren who will get said games i mention. codmw3 isnt the entire ps3 install-base
Nor is it the 360's. Stop ...just stop. Thankfully you only have 3 bubbles.
hahah COD is the most popular game on PS3 as well. none of the game yuo mention are on the list(even though it is VG chartz) besides Uncharted 3. I have a ps3 and 360, and will be getting Gears of War 3 and Unharted 3, and a bunch of multiplats like Deus ex, the witcher, Dark souls, Skyrm, maybe battlefield/AC. Also, Im pretty sure more people will like the Halo/gears/forza combo than the UC3/TM/Resistance combo. Notice they are similar types of games FPS, TPS, cars. And guess what, of all the game you and I mentioned CALL OF DUTY will outsell and be the most popular on both systems.
The 360 installed user base dwarfs the ps3 in the US. I'm surprised ps3 games actually make the top ten. I should point out, this obviously means that you cannot conclude that the 360 crowd are taking to Battlefield 3 more than the ps3 crowd. Install base must be kept in mind.
I am pretty sure BF3 ...nor any shooter from the west does too well in Japan. Japan = sizeable portion of the PS3 base....therefore its safe to say BF3 is being taken up slower on the PS3 than on the 360.
I don't think Clizzz took that into consideration. I was about to post the same exact thing.
vgchartz doesn't say anything about how a game is doing. edit: I thought you said something different. My mistake :) Ya. I agree. lol.
Battlefield 3 (PS3) and Skyrim (PS3) are paid off for me. I stopped purchasing CoD titles after MW2, and I don't plan to break the habit this year.
where is uncharted 3? why do 360 game always sell more?
We Americans love shooters.
uncharted is a shooter!
Its an action game with platforming and shooter elements. I wouldnt call Tomb Raider a shooter.
We Americans love hardcore shooters. :D
Well after UC2 I think 3rd person shooter better describes Uncharted now than action platformer.
No, Uncharted is a 3rd person shooter with climbing/platforming. Saying it isnt a shooter is funny. Most of uncharted is shooting and cover. With some climbing in between. I guess by your standards halo is a driving game with FPS elements.
Tasteless and blind or addicted consumers buying generic war games and sometimes with steroid buff soldiers that kill in hardcore ways just to look hardcore. And then there's diversity....
A definition of generic: 1.Very comprehensive; pertaining or appropriate to large classes or groups as opposed to specific. By definition, a 'generic' game is going to be more popular because it appeals to more people, how does that make those who buy popular games stupid? Some people (not me) game on a very limited budget, and so can't afford to take a risk with something a bit more out there like Alan Wake, Heavy Rain etc. Also they need a game that is going to last them for a great deal of time which makes buying a game with a fun, fully fleshed multiplayer essential, even large RPG's may not offer enough content to keep them occupied for 3-6 months or more. This is the main reason that games like CoD, Halo and Battlefield sell so well, because people know they are going to get a game that they can play for hundreds of hours.
- There are more 360's larger install base - If one like me owns both I much prefer multi-player on the 360 by a MILE!
4 of the top 5 are on the Xbox 360 and not a single PS3 exclusive in the top 5. Instead you have the top selling PS3 franchise, which is COD. So happy COD looks to be obliterating Battlefield 3 in pre orders. I actually have 8 of the top 20 already pre ordered, so I'm set for the rest of the year. Gears 3 obviously the biggie. Wouldn't be surprised if that game ramps up to 1.5 million in pre orders alone.
Not surprised that Gears 3 is the most preordered game right now. I tried to preorder its limited edition a couple weeks ago, but it's sold out literally everywhere. Hopefully, there will be more supply later on.
This competition between ps3 and 360 is kinda funny now that I think of it. Come on gamers, lets not be drawn into childish playground antics. They are just console.
Yeah...it was freaking awesome! That has nothing to do with this article though...so, I'm reporting. :)
Lmao wtf? 5 disagrees not bad. Gow3 is number 1 on the article, u blind bro?
Gears 3 on dedicated servers is going to hurt the future sales of shooters world wide. The original was the main reason I bought an xbox. GOTY for me!!!! Sorry uncharted is a good game but its just not violent enough for me. I have never seen Nathan Drake blow someones brain out of its cranium with extreme gore or stomp some poor #$*%@ on the curb lol. That little punk wouldn't last two seconds against Markus Fenix's Chainsaw! PS3 fans I'm sorry, if you do not own an xbox then you need to be in the nuthouse.
Marcus is brutal...but Kratos is MUUUUUUUCH more brutal. I like Gears of War 1 & 2 a lot, but I'm not going to buy a 360 just to play the third game. That's a poor financial decision. If you do not own a PS3 and you have the means to...I'm not sure how to respond to you as a gamer and/or individual.
I got both and the ps3 is my blue ray player :) I only own two games for ps3 tekken 6 and mortal kombat because I like kratos lol. So whats your excuse? PS3 is going to start charging soon as well. I'm sorry if you don't own Halo or Gears, you do belong in the nuthouse.
Damn, I guess a I got to go that nuthouse then because imo Gears is nothing like Uncharted. Uncharted 2 delivered a much better campaign and it's multiplayer was also more enjoyable.
Enjoy your stay lol
Seriously people, Skyrim and AC: R are 6 and 7 on that list as 360 preorders.....but ALL we care about is shooters. Let's get the whole story. Are shooters very popular on 360? Yes, but they're very popular on every platform including the PS3. But the next two games on that list are anything but shooters....but no one mentions them
Funny thing about this: we were getting reports just last week from Gamestop and Amazon that Battlefield was leading CoD in sales. No way in hell that could be true if these numbers are real; likewise, these numbers can't be real if the reverse is true.
You people shouldnt forget these are American pre orders only!!! They don't have worldwide preorders so obviously xbox games are on top in the chart. Come on it's logic people ;)
It's hard to forget when its clearly stated in the title.
I cannot speak for no one else. But I cannot wait for Gears 3 & Battlefield 3. Save those dollars!! This winter is going to be good with a sheitload of good games.
My 2 most anticipated games outside of the new Batman this year. Of course others like Skyrim, Rage, & Forza 4 will get got just the same.
I'd like to apologize to the gaming industry on behalf of American gamers... I am SO sorry for what we're doing to you... I truly am...
Since when do Americans apologize for their behavior? Own it man!
Apologize for yourelf. The rest of us are happy with the games we decide to purchase. Stop acting like the rest of the world is so damn nuanced. Pathetic. @likedamaster, We do when we need to. And seeing has how the rest of the world is just as degenerate and in most cases even more so then we are here in the states, I'll take what the rest of the world thinks with a grain of salt. Reality is far more real then perception.
Point well taken.
Good job Gears of war 3. You deserve it.
Yeah this is false, gamestop already confirmed Battlefield was beating MW3, and VG Charts is a biased bullshit sony website
You actually believe Battlefield 3 would be able to beat Modern Warfare 3 in pre-orders? How would that even be possible? Call of Duty's fanbase must outnumber Battlefield's 5 to 1, and MW3 is going to outsell BF3 this holiday season by a similar ratio whether you like it or not.
Correction: It's a bias Microsoft web site. When have you seen them give any love to Playstation? Exactly.
Ohh right here http://gamrfeed.vgchartz.co... Apparently you dont look to far into vgcharts ohh and heres ur proof that BF3 is beating cod http://www.youtube.com/watc... Did u also notice its listed under rumor? humph
... AMERICANS ARE STUPID. JK. BUT SERIOUSLY... THEY ARE SO GULLABLE SOMETIMES WITH THESE FADS
Yeah because the rest of the world is on the ball! America haters. They only love you when they need something.
Uncharted is not even in top 10! =(
3rd party software is running the charts
And people were comparing Gears and Uncharted for sales this holiday season... Gears 3 has 10 TIMES more pre-orders than Uncharted 3 in both games' biggest sales region!
A lot of xbox 360 games on the top 10, not surprised though, the xbox 360 had time to establish itself and has a larger install base.
Sony better move Uncharted 3. It will not survive being sandwiched between Battlefield 3 and MW3. Its not on the big boy level like that.
Nathan Drake is gonna get curb stomped this fall. I wonder if it's gonna be Marcus Phoenix or a locust rearranging is face.
