Noooooooo! lol well that's a good thing isn't it? Wii Play sells well for people are really buying the controller. I like the Wii but even I can admit that ;)

call of short 4 (best on PS3) sold alot more then halo 2.1 world wide.

toughNAME4664d ago (Edited 4664d ago )

the best game on PS3 sold A LOT more on the 360

EDIT - I didn't include PS3 in the sections...hopefully most of your kind will stay away

The PS3 fanboyism on this site is so bad that they are a lot of them have become delusional. CoD 4 on the PS3 probably didn't break 1 million copies.

This dream that you must live is a disease for which there is no cure.

"CoD 4 on the PS3 probably didn't break 1 million copies."

CoD4 has sold 1.61 million copies on the PS3, about half what it sold on the Xbox 360. One out of every 5.7 PS3 owners bought the game; one out of every 5.1 Xbox 360 owners bought the game (a 12% higher attach rate).

The only conclusions you can draw from more sales on the 360 is that the 360 has a larger install base, particularly in the US which accounted for well over half of CoD4 sales.

akaFullMetal4664d ago (Edited 4664d ago )

pretty impressed by the halo numbers, wow even beat wii play, congrats bungie

edit: and i got a disagree why???

xboxrumble4664d ago

is not impressed, with you being impressed by an xbox 360 game that will probably have 1 of the highest grossing of sales this gen of consoles.

tisk tisk

There will certainly be a handful of games that sell far more than Halo 3 (15 million+ isn't unheard of), but given the number of Xbox 360s on the market it's extremely impressive. The PS2 only had six games that sold more copies despite having an install base 8x the size.
