Gears 3, Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3 in the top 3.
And we wonder why devs don't give us more new IP's

xPhearR3dx2723d ago

If there's no new IP's to pre-order how are they ever going to take the top spots?

newleaf2722d ago

rAge? Its in the list but nowhere near the top. Last Guardian? New IP right there.

jetlian2722d ago

do people need new ip's all the time? not changing the style of play!

Dlacy13g2722d ago

@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 are getting highly polished experiences (for the most part).

Bigpappy2722d ago (Edited 2722d ago )

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?

DFresh2722d ago

Uncharted is a Playstation franchise noob.
Not multiplatform.
Make the correction.

gunnerforlife2721d ago

@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

chidori6662722d ago

danm,uuc3 pre-ordrs is low numbers.sad this..

JokesOnYou2722d ago (Edited 2722d ago )

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.

showtimefolks2722d ago

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
xcom(since its been so long)
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.

killerhog2722d ago (Edited 2722d ago )

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

Convas2722d ago

Really bro? You seem to be speaking for yourself as your fellow PS3 brethren seem to want Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

lMHl2722d ago Show
Dlacy13g2722d ago

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.

fatalred alarm2722d ago

i'll be enjoying tons of games later this year. And i only own a xbox360 now.

Like someone above me said:
Battlefield 3
Modern warfare 3
Gears of war 3
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.

killerhog2722d ago (Edited 2722d ago )

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

Dlacy13g2722d ago

Nor is it the 360's. Stop ...just stop. Thankfully you only have 3 bubbles.

Solidus187-SCMilk2722d ago (Edited 2722d ago )

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.

news4geeks2722d ago

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.

Dlacy13g2722d ago

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.

Ser2722d ago

I don't think Clizzz took that into consideration. I was about to post the same exact thing.

Shackdaddy8362722d ago (Edited 2722d ago )

vgchartz doesn't say anything about how a game is doing.

edit: I thought you said something different. My mistake :) Ya. I agree. lol.

Ser2722d ago (Edited 2722d ago )

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.

slavish32722d ago

where is uncharted 3? why do 360 game always sell more?

ECM0NEY2722d ago

We Americans love shooters.

slavish32722d ago

uncharted is a shooter!

ECM0NEY2722d ago

Its an action game with platforming and shooter elements.

I wouldnt call Tomb Raider a shooter.

carlosjrix2722d ago

We Americans love hardcore shooters. :D

Dlacy13g2722d ago

Well after UC2 I think 3rd person shooter better describes Uncharted now than action platformer.

Solidus187-SCMilk2722d ago

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....

Tachyon_Nova2722d ago (Edited 2722d ago )

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.

Tron_Rocks2721d ago

- 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!
