Looks like multi-platform releases dominate the exclusives...
yes http://gamrreview.vgchartz.... i want this game to happen soon
On Topic, im surprised that LBP 2 only sold 1.56m, its not bad i surpose but i was expecting it to sell alot more. Good to see UC2 almost hitting 5m
I'm shocked at Infamous 2's figures! I mean that is really disappointing, it's such a brilliant game. What is it with some Sony exclusives? Haven't played Resistance 3 yet, but I understand that it is excellent. People talk about Sony's lack of marketing, but I remember there being a lot of buzz about both these games in the form of promotions, special offers, bundles, etc. Just can't understand it.
@Bushlitter Infamous 2 is my favourite game of 2011 so far and i'm surprised more people have picked it up (0.86)and with batman and uncharted incoming its going to struggle. definatley one of most overlooked games of this year
First of all those vg numbers arent right since its a fact that gt 5 is the highest selling on a sony platform according to numbers the developers have given @ below Gran Turismo 5 (6.37 million) Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (5.20 million) Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (4.8 million approximately; 3.531 million in the US, 244.578 and 25.268 The Best in Japan, at least 1 million in UK) Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (3.8 million) MotorStorm (3.31 million) Call of Duty: Black Ops (3.269 million units approximately; 3.094 million in the US, 175,813 in Japan) http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Hmm, not so sure about that, I'm pretty sure Black Ops is the best selling game on X360 and PS3.
LOL. Trust me, he knows that. But to believe that is to believe that there are millions on the PS3 that love and play Call of Duty, not just come on here and bitch and moan. Funny that 3 of the top 5 titles are Call of Duty.
It would appear these are global numbers for GT5, but Black ops' do not include Europe, middle east and Asia (Japan and Asia being separate statistics). I could be wrong, but I believe the data provided by wikipedia on this matter is incomplete. I would also add that BO's sales data foind on wikipedia are coming from the invisible walls podcast on gametrailers, since I haben't listened to this particular one, I don't know where they took their data, but I'm not sure it's 100% reliable. Anyway, only Sony and Activision know the truth.
COD are the best selling games on the HD consoles, next it's GTAIV, GT5, MGS4 on the PS3 list, and Uncharted 2 is @ 4.9m now, GAF got the numberz :P
Black Ops=the highest selling game on the HD consoles....
Cod haters/BF fanboys are not gonna like this.
Well... They already know actually. What annoys them is that a game can be remade over and over again with little change and still sell so well. Kinda annoys me too. I like cod, but I don't want to buy all of them, just one every couple of releases.
Kinda like Assassins Creed huh? But I guess that game isn't popular enough to hate on huh?
I don't understand why VGchartz freeze GT5 @ 6.5m ? PD announced that GT5 moved 6.4m in first 6 weeks of sales. Proof http://www.gamersmint.com/g...
Yes, because they really have no idea.
Yes, they moved them from storage to retailers. AKA shipped. Not sell thru. Not in consumers hands. Understand?
@Number_13 what part from "Gran turismo 5 "SOLD" 6.37 million copies in first six weeks" you didn't understand ?? from the article "Gran Turismo 5 has Sold Â 6.37 Million worldwide in six weeks according to a report published by Polyphony Digital." http://www.gamersmint.com/g... GamersRulz was right EDIT: @Number_13 WTF ?? Do You Have any Link To Prove That ??? you are trying too hard man
yeah, it SOLD to retailers. Lol you think they give them to GameStop for free? Lol come on guy.
Number_13 is right, it is sold to retailers...as are ALL of the numbers. Sony, MS and Nintendo count sold as sold to retailers. If there's strong demand for a game, then the retailers buy more. Not sure why Number_13 is trying to make out that only Sony do it though, fanboy or do you really believe MS/Nintendo actually report sold to customers (LMAO)?
Actually I can see that exclusives are selling very well, most of em between 2-4m
wha...?? can't be!! ps3 fans don't buy their games /s add to that MGS4 5.29m Gran Turismo5 6.55m
This site says these games sold really well but people say PS3 exclusives don't sell. Someone is lying.
According to VGchartz: GT5 @6.55 ( very questionable ) see my previous comment MGS4 @5.29 Uncharted 2 @4.89 LBP @4.50 GT prologue @4.11 God of War 3 @4.04 Resistance @3.85 Uncharted @3.72 Motorstorm @3.59 Killzone 2 @2.68 GOW collection @2.31 Ratchet & Clank @2.20 Resistance 2 @2.16 Infamous @2.05 Killzone 3 @1.87 Heavy Rain @1.85 LBP 2 @1.56 Heavenly sword @1.48 Demon's souls @1.28 MAG @ 1.17 This doesn't include digital only sales for GTP5. those numbers indicate that PS3 exclusive sells very well unless you consider a seven digit number very low.
Except GT5 isn't available digitally.
Edit: to the disagreers, I welcome any education to the contrary
He didn't say it was, GT prologue is. That is what he's talking about.
Great sale actually.
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahaha!!!!!!!!! Bubbles cuz
There are alot of flaws with vgchartz. I noticed all the GT games except GT5/GT5P match Polyphonys real numbers (why?). Also Konami reported MGS4 selling 5 million at the end of 2009 (in their report). So according to vgchartz it hasn't even sold 300k in nearly 2 whole years? Quantic Dream also announced Heavy Rain selling 2 million in March earlier this year.
wtf??? 569. Shadows of the Damned 0.06m 0.06m?!?!? definitely deserved better. suda, you can live at mine if you need a place to stay. just uh... keep the weirdness to a minimum, and the bathroom is not your office
I thought Resistance: Fall of Man was over 5 million.
I am not surprised multi-plat software is leading the market share
I compared this PS3 list to the 360 list. Interesting numbers. In the top 20 sellers, both systems sold around the same number of 3rd person shooter/action games (cca 43mil), RPGs (cca 4mil) and racers (cca 10mil). FPSs sold twice as much on the 360 compared to PS3. (cca 66mil/30mil). Sport Games made it only on PS3 (cca 8mil). So when it comes to top sellers there are more similarities than differences. Both camps like the same genres, PS3 gamers prefer more Sports, 360 gamers prefer more FPSs.
Vgchartz a site that was made by a disgrunteld 360fanboy after he got kicked of neogaf. Im taking this with a pinch of salt. Im just dissapointed in myself that i am 1 of those black ops owners/cry, Never again i will never commit that sin of buying a trashy cod game again.
Cod ruining the world everywhere you go...
ps3 exclusives sell well enough it mite not do gears or halo numbers but they sell well its just that when youve got a ps3 there is sooo much to play and ur pockets get dry :( gata choose wisely
N4G Fanboys will go into a g*y rage about how these numbers are lies and that UC sold a billion instead of 4.95 million.
People like you always come out of the woodwork for articles like this. I wouldn't be surprised if people that have a beef on this site aren't the ones writing dumb articles and approving them, just to make dumb comments. What's wrong with liking exclusive games? With multiplats added, that's the best of both worlds. How come people have a problem with that? The more games the better right? And, I don't remember anyone boasting about PS3 exclusives outselling anything. Only one type of fanboy excels at that.
wow @ killzone, what a disappointment. no wonder GG is moving on to a new franchise.
No wonder you have only one bubble. OT. I think I'm going to buy Motorstorm Apacolypse and contribute to that list even more
