lol...not more than 6.5 million? You make that sound like thats a horrible number or something.

9.1 mill, for Gears is my guess. I chose BF3 for launch. I'll wait for a price drop on MW3.

RegorL2415d ago

Battlefield 3 for X360 at 12 w before launch: 400 k units
now matches Black Ops for X360 at 12 w before launch: 400 k units

Will be interesting to see what future will bring...

Indeed those are good numbers for BF3, but what is crazy...look at the MW3 numbers at 14 weeks. Both games are going to have huge numbers opening numbers.

OdinFallen2415d ago

I'm surprised at the numbers for SWTOR. I had assumed that since I was seeing a bunch of places sell out of the collectors edition that it was selling fast. I guess supply is simply low and not able to meet demand there.

i think gears is selling well because it's the only exclusive available for the 360 this year...

BioDemon-2413d ago (Edited 2413d ago )

Forza and Halo don't count, and while we are at it, lets ignore XBLA games as well. /s

aviator1892413d ago

it's ridiculous how we keep getting this same exact comment with almost every gears 3-related article.

zerox5052412d ago

well its true, usually most gamers are into fps or tps games seeing how successful cod, battlefield, and halo is it's no doubt gears of war series would be as popular as well. halo 4 is not coming out this year and forza is just a racing game, has an audience but not that massive compared to other games out this year.

GrilledCheeseBook2407d ago

I disagree. Gears was my favorite shooter on the 360 when I had one. It sells well because it is good at what it is.
