Gears of War 3 is going to be huge. There is still 9 more weeks until launch and it is at ~1.2 million preorders in America alone. That doesn't even count people that are just going to pick it up in the first week without a preorder and people in other countries.

Very sad PS3 users don't support as much Uncharted 3 as xbox users support Gears 3.

Lot of these users are just counting their exclusivities on forums for console war but when it comes to spend money on them only a few go for the day one buy.

130 000 pre-ordered for U3, that's a shame.
Supporting a game, it's not making comparison to see wich has the best graphics or best IQ.
Supporting a game is going for it day one.

Really hope uncharted 3 gonna be supported by this so called community, better leave all your forums and this time just buy or preorder this game, because it deserves it.

I think U3 in terms of preorder will never top Gears 3, but it can do better than those 130000 preorders.

ViperX22496d ago

I plan on pre-ordering U3 with out a doubt, but I never pre-order this early. I always wait until a week or so before release so that I can make sure to get the Amazon credit if they are going to offer on for whatever game I'm pre-ordering. A lot of the time they don't offer the credit until a week or two before it is released.

aquamala2496d ago

I wouldn't count on it, infamous 2 never got a credit, nor Catherine

XboxInnovation2496d ago

It's becuase Gears 3 is really overrated and Xbox has no games so Xbox gamers are foaming out the mouth for anything not Call of duty which is all they play. PS3 has tons of exclusives for all the fans to not put their eggs in the Uncharted 3 basket, and Uncharted 3 will still sell 4-5 million.

People in denial feel free to thumb this down.

Series_IIa2496d ago

You're missing out pal if you only play exclusives.

chidori6662496d ago

mouth for anything not Call of duty"

funny the best selling game in PS3 is Black ops...

Redgehammer2496d ago

I thumbed you down because your comment is speculative, and completely inane. The 360 has plenty of games, boxed and arcade. You can't generalize like that and expect anyone to take your comment serious. I know I don't.

JeffGUNZ2496d ago

momthemeatloaf. GTFO. Gears 3 beta was one of the best online experience I have EVER experience. Gears 3 is going to be a monster.

Despite the strong fanboy presence here on N4G the PS3 community is a shadow of the 360's. Plus Uncharted have never been a blockbuster seller.

DarkTower8052496d ago

To be fair, Gears 2 didn't sell that much more than U2. I don't expect there to be much of a difference between U3 and Gears 3 either. Preorders don't mean shit, especially when I haven't seen the preorder deals for U3 yet.

finnhima2496d ago

What are you flailing about? Uncharted 2 only had a measly 300,000 preorders yet went on to achieve 4.7 million in sales. Pre-orders don't show any negative indicator of anything, and its usually fanboys of the oppposite console who want to twist that into some sort of negative.

One of the main reasons that people ran out to even pre-order Gears 3 was because it came with a beta-incentive. Uncharted 3 has no pre-order incentives whatsoever. I didn't pre-order Uncharted 3, but I damn sure will be there on launch day. Its un-necessary.

petko232496d ago

poor uncharted. uncharted 2 sold 4 million, probably 5-6 million lifetime. gears 2 lifetime is 6 million. so what the f*ck are you talking about? gears 3 in the end will not sell over 6 million. uncharted 3 maybe 1 million less

DoomeDx2496d ago

Its the Preorder chart from America. Xbox is the leading console there.
In the EU, it will have more preorders

newleaf2496d ago

Are you serious? How can you say gears 2 lifetime sales are 6 million but somehow uncharted 2 sales are going to jump ahead almost 2 million from where they are right now? Gears 3 is pre-ordering higher than Halo Reach and it has sold 8.5 million in less than a year. Gears 3 WILL sell over 6 million

aquamala2496d ago

Gears 3 has a $20 credit on amazon, I wouldn't have preordered without it

RedHotChiliPepaSpray2496d ago

Who cares what the pre order chart says. I'm buying day one and so will thousands of others. Also I don't wanna sound like a fanboys but I think ps3 users have wider range of games compared to 360 users which could be why gears is quite high.

Overall I'm just saying ps3 has more quality exclusives this year ... Don't care if 360 users hate on me for that but apart frOm froza, halo and gears, there's not much from the xbox this year for exclusives while since the start of 2011 ps3 had
littlebigplanet2, killzone3, infamous2, motor storm apocalypse socom4 and still to come resistance 3, uncharted 3, ratchet and clank, last gUardian and twisted metal

JeffGUNZ2496d ago

Terrible argument. 2 of the most anticipated and pre-ordered games on the PS3 are FPS and are BF3 and MW3. I am tired of PS3 users using the "we have all these options to choose from" nonsense. I own both consoles and the only PS3 exclusive I am pumped for is UC3. My number one game I am pumped for is Gears 3, then MW3, then BF3, then UC3.

Just because the PS3 has more exclusives doesn't mean they are amazing.

RedHotChiliPepaSpray2496d ago

You say my argument is terrible lol. I'm talking about exclusives that each console has to offer. Both 360 and ps3 can order mw3 and bf3, so my point is the ps3 has more to choose from. With games only they can get

And it's not "nonsense". It's true. Ps3 does have more to choose from and just because you aren't excited for the great choice of games that have come out and are going to come out this year doesn't mean a lot of other people aren't.

And most of the games I listed have either good reviews or are most likely going to get good reviews.

The ps3 does have more choice in quantity and quality in exclusives and going back to my point this does mean the money will be scattered around for these games and not just on one or two block busters like gears and halo on the 360

JeffGUNZ2495d ago

I am not disagreeing with you in that the PS3 has more exclusives. I have played almost all of their exclusives and enjoy a good portion of them. But honestly, I have put more time in the Gears franchise then all the PS3 exclusives I have played. The PS3 exclusives are good, don't get me wrong, but I'd rather have more BLOCKBUSTER titles then just good exclusives.

We also can't say "are most likely going to get good reviews", since they haven't been reviewed. You never know if you will have a let down, let Too Human and MAG. We all thought those games were going to be AAA quality and were let down when they weren't.

I just really find it hard to see your point. The PS3 has a few great exclusives being released, I see that. Yet, how are two multiplat games taking the highest spots for pre-orders right now with BF3 and MW3? Shouldn't all those great exclusives be portioned out throughout the top 20 pre-orders? I see what you are trying to say, but the numbers are telling a different story.
