very unfortunate numbers for Resistance 3, Dead Island has in fact overtaken it on just PS3 which is highly shocking to me. I do not understand why this game is not selling like it deserves to. A true AAA experience in my opinion. Whatever the reason, I hope those that bought it are at least enjoying it and those that didn't are enjoying whatever it is they did buy.

"very unfortunate numbers for Resistance 3, Dead Island has in fact overtaken it on just PS3 which is highly shocking to me. I do not understand why this game is not selling like it deserves to."

Dead Island is outselling Resistance 3 because the FPS/shooter genre in general is packed this year. Most are buying MW3(or a COD game) and those who aren't are choosing from a dozen other shooters to buy this year(Gears, Uncharted, Rage, BF3, Payday, etc.)

Dead Island on the other hand is an action zombie beat em up...theres not much competition in that genre period, so when a game like this seldom pops up, people are ready to buy it.

Number_132274d ago

That's one way of looking at it I suppose. But you listed games that aren't out yet. How do you know those games will sell all that well?

LOGICWINS2274d ago

No no. I never said any of them would sell THAT well. I'm saying that in this particular year, gamers have a lot of choices as far as shooters are concerned. Obviously most can't afford to buy them all...so they have to pick and choose which ones they really want.

If Resistance 3 was the only shooter to come out this year..it would have done much better saleswise.

BattleTorn2274d ago

I always buy exclusives. I love knowing the developers tested the entire thing on the intended hardware.

smashcrashbash2274d ago

They are third on the list. What's wrong with that?

BattleTorn2274d ago (Edited 2274d ago )

Where are those numbers from?

No where is Dead Island leading sales on PS3.

[oh, silly, you quoted weekly numbers!]

*everyone go look at totals.

MasterCornholio2274d ago

Isn't dead island better on the PS3? Maybe that is why its selling more than the 360 version in Europe.

DaTruth2274d ago

There are more PS3's in Europe, hence there are more Dead Islands selling on PS3!

But this is VGChartz, so it's a moot point!

MasterCornholio2274d ago

3DS sales have increased a lot since the price drop and it almost overtakes the PS3. I guess 170 euros really is the sweet spot for Nintendo. OMG the PS2 is still alive when will it die its been 5 years since the PS3s launch and it still lives.

AWBrawler2274d ago

3DS just barely lost to PS3. and we all know that PS3 is most dominant in Europe, so that's impressive.

Agent_hitman2274d ago

Wow good lead for PS3 at number 1
