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

BushLitter1713d ago

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)[116]
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (5.20 million)[116]
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (4.8 million approximately; 3.531 million in the US,[27][28][29][30] 244.578 and 25.268 The Best in Japan,[133] at least 1 million in UK)[32]
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (3.8 million)[134]
MotorStorm (3.31 million)[135]
Call of Duty: Black Ops (3.269 million units approximately; 3.094 million in the US,[136] 175,813 in Japan[133])

Hmm, not so sure about that, I'm pretty sure Black Ops is the best selling game on X360 and PS3.

StanLee1713d ago

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.

STK0261713d ago

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.

sikbeta1713d ago

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

NYC_Gamer1713d ago

Cod haters/BF fanboys are not gonna like this.

cpayne931714d ago

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.

GraveLord1713d ago

Kinda like Assassins Creed huh? But I guess that game isn't popular enough to hate on huh?

GamersRulz1714d ago

I don't understand why VGchartz freeze GT5 @ 6.5m ? PD announced that GT5 moved 6.4m in first 6 weeks of sales.

Proof

FighterJoe1714d ago

Yes, because they really have no idea.

Number_131714d ago

Yes, they moved them from storage to retailers. AKA shipped. Not sell thru. Not in consumers hands. Understand?

elshadi1714d ago (Edited 1714d ago )

@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  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

Number_131714d ago

yeah, it SOLD to retailers. Lol you think they give them to GameStop for free? Lol come on guy.

Cyrax_871713d ago

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)?

GamersRulz1714d ago

Actually I can see that exclusives are selling very well, most of em between 2-4m

elshadi1714d ago (Edited 1714d ago )

wha...?? can't be!!
ps3 fans don't buy their games /s

add to that
MGS4 5.29m
Gran Turismo5 6.55m
