According to the latest VGCharts Motorstorm has crossed the 2 million sales mark. It is to be noted, however, that the PS3 SKUs bundled with Motorstorm have a big hand in this.
Which is like saying 'according to my little sister'
This is bs though if you include a game with the system of course it will reach 2 million I doubt it would have hit 2 million if not bundled. This is a garbage half completed game.
Tell that to Nintendo with Super Mario Bros.
Well in that case you could say that the only reason why Vista is selling is because of Dell, gateway and HP.
good for sony!
Because the 80GB PS3 will have a HUGE tax so it will all add up anyway!
good and it only took it 2years
motorstorm release december 16th 2006 in japan. march 6th 2007 in the Us and march 24 in UK/AU/EU... and sold 1 million about 1 month after it went global.
motorstorm 2 will be awesome, much more than the first ever was
edit @ Socomnick.
Who the F*ck was talking about overratted Halo in this thread... halo sold on hype there isn't many games on this planet that can sell with that kind of force beside GTA, GT, MGS and FF and maybe kingdom hearts...
Please leave the fanboi shinanigans out of this... motorstorm sold 2 million it great it did it in a little over a year of it's release.
if you cant understand that most games wont sell dont sell on halo hype to have market success. please go play Halo. and stop trolling you TWAT.
Halo 3 took 24 hours to reach and surpass that statistic.
ps3 launched november 2006.
it is now december 2007.
motorstorm came march of 2007.
again it is now december of 2007.......................... ............I SAY THIS ALOT BUT THAT WAS THE STUPIDEST COMMENT IVE EVER READ IN MY LIFE.
Halo 3 disappointed far more people than Motorstorm ever could. Enjoy your Game Fuel.
Lol, Halo didn't sell 2 million in 24 hours, they sold that much through pre-orders before the game even officially came out :)
And the graphics on motorstorm are superior to halo 3
Maybe in your world...
2 year? The PS3 hasnt even been out that long...
omg i cant believe this ludacris that im hearing today.
first jack who's comment and now your's
how are you going to compare halo3 to a new ip racing game. omg im almost crying just to know the world has idiots like you and jack who in it.
so did you know that grandturismo 3 sold 13million plus copies.
and WHAT DID HALO3 SELL AGAIN?
if grand turismo sold that much in 24 hours im impressed but if thats its total sales im not the ps2 has a huge install base. Halo 3 managed to sell way over 2 million in 24 hours with a install base only around 12-16 million.
Take into consideration that
1)Motorstorm was a new ip
2)Its racing (fps is bigger than racing)
3)Install base of ps3 in comparison to 360.
4)Halo is a lot bigger and it had a lot more hype.
Thats more than enough reasons to justify the sales difference.
Well yeah, that too. I forgot to mention that, my brother was bothering me so I was typing it under pressure.
Hellbringer also take into consideration that Motorstorm is is bundled in with the ps3.
I'm not so sure that FPS is bigger than racing. There are a lot of racing titles out there and they sell in every territory. FPS sell primarily in the US and Europe.
If they only can ad some things to the sequel to make it even greater (Splitscreen and a little map in the left corner)
played the game nothing special about it it only reached 2 mil cause of ps3 sales
Sony can sell 2 million copies of a game after it has been out over a year. Not to mention that it is a pack-in with the console. LOL
Maybe they should package Unwanted: Drake's Flop next and give it away for free(I mean sell) to reach 2 million copies.
How old are you? Please god, there is no way you are a grown man.
it's pretty obvious he's a child.
Go Home Troll, you aren't wanted here by xbox and ps3 fans alike!
4D Zangief is Bloodmask.
Wasn't Forza 2 also packed in with 360s? So I'm sure the sales for that game was pampered due to it being bundled as well. Needless to say, you should at least make a minimal attempt at firing your neurons before firing out BS from your mouth.
For once your right....that would be a great deal.
Lol i was gonna say I thought that it came bundled with the PS3. Heard it was a good title though. Now only if they bundled FF13VS with the 80GB then I would have lost all willpower and made my way down to the local best buy
mwuhahah come to the dark side my child
It alreday passed 1 million about 2 months after it's release.
is absolutley NO game on the 360 that can compete with the likes of Motorstorm. This is an amazing game. NOTHING on the 360 can compete with this off road, adreniline filled game. So, xbotz can say what they want, but they know that if you popped this into their PleaseFixMe, it would burn.
Um......you got to be fuucking kidding me with what you just posted. Jin wannabe pac probably 12 Kazama. What the hell are you smoking?
Do you even have a PS3. You remind me of those groupies that go after bands and singers. That is not a good thing either if that confuses you.
Edit rofldings there is no need to the 360 software sales speaks for themselves. I don't need to come back with anything. It is funny the only thing this kid can ever say is XBOT or RROD etc. How ignorant would I be running around screaming folding@home all day blah blah blah. What happened to Uncharted? What happend to UT3? What happen to R&C? What the hell happened to these so called Console movers? Please let me know what I don't so I can understand. It is so funny we are talking about a game that was launched way back in March and sales better than the best looking games just released on the console. Oh and it takes a bundled PS3 to make 2mil in sales? Non of the 360 games needed to do so. Just goes to show you what is wrong with Sony's stratagy. BR first than games. Can't wait to hear what you all will say come the end of 08. Probably "wait until 09 Sony is going to soooooooo own dude"
So you just insult him because you can't think of a title like Motorstorm on your RRoDbox, right?
Motorstorm is an absolutely mediocre game. If 2 million sales is supposed to be impressive, I think it is also reflective of the scarcity of good games on the PS3 thus far.
Halo 3 is an unbelievably mediocre game. If 6 million sales are supposed to be impressive, I think it is also reflective of the scarcity of good games on the 360 thus far.
Its called Forza 2, check it out. But you won't because anything without the PS3 logo on it is heresy. douchebag...
@rofldings, man your so goddamn pathetic.
EDIT: Because jin the f**kwad says nothing on 360 can compete with Motorstorm. So if were comparing racing games, then Forza 2 is perfectly eligible.
how does forza compares to motorstorm??? last time I check Forza is a "sim" and Motorstorm is not
compared to a game with 8 tracks and no multiplayer. hahaha halo brought the limited weapons to the fore front of FPS, and halo3 continues to innovate with the 4 player online co-op and the recordins and file sharing. sorry but I dont think you should compare this game to halo3, your just embarasing yourself.
Lol damn. I was hoping I could get this comment in before the Xbots came in here and did there usual bashing. Wheres the real gamers at?
With the motion control even my 3 year old plays and loves it. A guy posted here a while back saying he toilet trained his kid by bribing him with Motorstorm so I tried it. My kid loves Motorstorm but now just pisses his pants while he plays it!
Apparently playing on the 360 and Wii and watching movies on the 360 too vs most of you watching movies on the PS3. Go on we know brag about the Blu-Ray movie sales.
name you are a lie!! MoSt did not pass 1 million 2 months after it launched!! links please!! one thing is for sure the PS3 has a hard time selling a million copies of ANY game right now. as a matter of fact they only have 2 an thats MS an RFOM!!an thats after 1 year on the market for the PS3!!MS less than a year but still...
Add NGS, COD4, and assassins creed to that list. I also think warhawk is close if it hasn't already passed it, oh and Oblivion.
with the bundle?? no sh*t sherlock.
Captain obvious coming to the rescue.!!!
Wtf? There's nothing to be upset about with this mediocre game.
Over a year to reach 2million even though the game was bundled every way possible. Meh.
this game hasnt even been out a year so what are you talking about, and whats with all the hostility? I dont understand how people act like its the end of the world because ps3 is shaping up nicley
Sony's been giving Motorstorm away, just as Microsoft has with Forza 2 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance. The contributor "smart_head" must be a desperate PS3 Fanboy that is try to plug the PS3 software sales. The truth is that a rehashed game like Lego Star Wars the complete Saga on the Xbox 360 out sold most high profile Playstation 3 titles.
too bad 360 has 28 :(
That's because MS supporters will buy anything That will net them useless gamer points. I remember to of my friends clamoring for the Ninja Turtles game because it was the easiest 1000 achievement points you could get. It makes me sick to think that this is what the gaming industry has reduced itself to, when a crappy game like TMNT outsells a pretty good game like motorstorm because it has easy access to useless points.
EDIT: @below, I never said it wasn't a genius marketing ploy, but it's money and numbers that speak to these developers. Tell me honestly now, regardless of platform, would you rather have more innovative games and new IPs like Motorstorm, or more useless garbage like TMNT or Fuzion Frenzy? Because the numbers are making it look like the latter right now, and I can't honestly believe that ANYONE would want to actually play that crap. People need to stop buying the crappy games, and start buying the games that deserve our money, and MS isn't helping this situation by releasing mediocre games with easy achievements so that Johnny C. Gamer can have more meaningless points that will never do anything helpful for anyone. Now, like I've said before, if these points were redeemable over XBL for something useful, I would understand the attraction, but until then it will always reek of "bigger d!ck" syndrome to me.
give Obsessive players a reason to buy games. a non-essential measuring stick of their hobby.
microsoft knows it, sony noticed and acted on it.
nintendo is too slow and perhaps even unable to produce a similar option due to hardware limits.
Cant wait for Motorstorm 2 next year, while xbois will be begging for games lol or a new xrod!
Yer in Australia Microsoft is so desperate that they gives away 2 games with its premium console!!!
+ I own both PS3 and 360 and the 360 cant touch Moterstorm's IQ
this is the best racing game ever next to midnight club 3.the online is second to none,and PSN has all kinds of cars and trucks to buy and is always updated.ONLINE MADNESS!!!
Im one of those 2 million. This is a great racing game and is only getting better with DLC.
It's a pack in what do you expect lol trying to make a year old game look like it's something special. If the game is that good try getting those numbers with it sold separately, and being sold along with the ps3 doesn't count sorry....hmm that means's wii sports has been reached almost 20 mil then lol sony.
WHY do people continue to cite VGChartz as a useful source. That's like saying "My buddy who knows a lot about stuff said such and such..."
as more people buy PS3s, I suspect a lot of the quality titles will be doubling in sales from when they were first released
Sony has been losing sooo much money this past year it's just insane.
Right, because we all know that MS game division has been SOOOO profitable...
You believe the nonsense you spew as if it was factual info.
Sony makes much more than the Playstation division.
That game sucked.
Xbox fans stop lying the ps3 has been out for 1 year and motor storm has been out for 9 months. The only people that care about halo is the people that bought in to the hype halo multi play is good but the single player campaign is a joke cod 4 and bioshock are head and shoulders above halo.
uhhh... misleading... "Motorstorm Crosses 2 Million Sales Mark" should be... "Motorstorm Crosses 2 Million Bundled Mark... only way a game on the PS3 can reach that much copies... pretty much every top selling game on the PS3 was bundled a some point... that's like saying that nintendo sold lots of copies of Wiisport...
Assassin's Creed and COD4 both sold over 1 million copies on PS3 unbundled.
Resistance: Fall of man sold over 2 million unbundled.
Motorstorm sold over a million copies before it was bundled.
Plus you would PAY MORE for the bundle... so it's not free like wii sports...
all i ask is for you to prove that these OTHER games sold over a million!! show links that COD4, oblivian, AC an others sold over 1 million on the PS3. not saying that they DIDNT I just wanna see proof!! we all know GOW,madden,AC,bioshock, halo all sold over 1 million on 360.
