The PlayStation 3 exclusive game LittleBigPlanet has just sold more than 1 million copies. The game is one of the best PS3 games (if you look at the review marks). Click on the link for more info.
The trend of ps exclusives continue. Sony's games sell well over time because there is just too much veriaty. If we had only a mindless shooter to brag about ofcourse it would sell more than what it's worth. OBAMA!!!
too funny how the droids in here said it would sell millions right out the door. Buffoons
hahahaha took quite a long time to hit 1 million sold even army of two hit 1 million faster./lol
1.9 Million!!! So far!!! ;-D Er sack-boy told me!!!;) It's more than 1 Million, i'm sure. It's SOOOOOOOOO much FUN with a few Friends or with someone on-line;) It will sell Loads more this xMas and into next year;) + 'Gears of War 2' should of sold 20 Million 1st week!!! ;-D It didn't!!! 'FLOP FLOP FLOP OF WAR 2' ;) Well it sold 3 Million(Hmm)and the other 17 Million downloaded it illegally!!! POOR M$ ;-D
Hahhahahahahahahaha what a turd! It took over a month to sell 1 million "world wide" as the Sont douche force likes to spin? NOT even in the NPD top ten ,SPIN THAT!!!! 1. Gears of War 2 - Xbox 360 - 1.56 million 2. Call of Duty: World at War - Xbox 360 - 1.41 million 3. Wii Play w/ remote - Wii - 796K 4. Wii Fit - Wii - 697K 5. Mario Kart - Wii - 637K 6. Call of Duty: World at War - PS3 - 597K 7. Guitar Hero: World Tour - Wii - 475K 8. Left 4 Dead - Xbox 360 - 410K 9. Resistance 2 - PS3 - 385K 10. Wii Music - Wii - 297K There are your NPD numbers a-holes!!!
8. Left 4 Dead - Xbox 360 - 410K 9. Resistance 2 - PS3 - 385K
Yea we hyped an awesome games that sells well from the looks of it, sorry most Ps3 owners have jobs and have to save money and pay whatever bills they need to and wait, not like most 15 year old Xbox users begging mommy and daddy for gears of war and halo, you would understand that if you had a job and had to pay things. yea not everybody is gonna run out like xbox fans did with their parents to by them gears of war, spoiled brats
and obama are both jokes.
And ps3 owners don't buy games and all the other ect stereotypes. The bad part about that is, those are vgchart numbers. And they ALWAYS undertrack PS3 sales. So they more than likely got past 1 million two weeks before they even posted their "estimates"
I mean seriously, it totally got owned by Mass Effect in November 2007 sales and... ....oh look, it's within a few thousand of topping Mass Effect in lifetime sales. OOPS! I guess games that spread by word of mouth and have legs actually DO sell over the long run. Anyone see a price drop for Uncharted? No such luck yet in Canada. LBP is at a million now. I'm saying at least 2.5 million lifetime. That seems to be how Sony works these days without massive advertising.
Must be the 360 version of LBP that sold a million copies
Some random people just wanted to bring the LBP discussion back up.
PS3 games aren't suppose to sell over a million it's just a Blu Ray player *sarcasm*.. I bet the new thing for 2009 will be.. If a game doesn't sell 2 million day one , with a 95 metacritic average it's not AAA , total flop..XD
Ico Sotc Okami Beyaond good and evil Just to name a few, are some of the best games I have ever played and their sale was Disaster(except for Sotc,it sold more than a million,but for a game being for 4 years in development it is still bad)
LOL! and Sony sure did outsell the 360!! ohh wait.. Also I would like to see confirmation from Sony or Media Molecule about those sales figures because I wonder how they got Europes number. Europe doesn't have NPD or anything like that.
if you guys think Sony is gonna allow LBP to fade away silently..then NO.. Expect a LBP planet Bundle....with the price cut next spring.^.^
and it didt even pass a million. as long as the game sell around 500K and above then it will cover the development costs if it wasnt an expansive game, 1 million sellers r successful and can give the team more money and more motivation to make a sequel and if its more than 2 then there will be definitely another sequel
Actually Sotc is BEST GAME EVAR,for me atleast:),And it did sell a million copy,I am sure of it,ICO sold 650k,though
360 is a superior GAMING console compared to PS3. XBL is greater than PSN. But the PS3 is a great blu ray player... On topic- Spin it all you want PS3 fans but this game did not sell one single PS3. Everyone of you said that this was going to be a console seller along with Resistance 2. We can not say they are not console sellers because the PS3 sold less than last years November NPD!
say my name.
funny that their source is vg chartz and not sony or MM. so are we to start believing vg chartz now. or is this a special case where we would except these numbers because it's LBP or a sony exclusive. i just want to make sure i understanding the hipocrisy thats going on in here.
You are correct. They passed 1 million over a week ago.
Sorry, my friend bought a PS3 to get this game. Until now he swore blind he wouldn't get all three consoles again.
No, there's just idiots who thought the game would just stop selling. -__- This game will continue to sell because a) It's an amazing game, and b) People are probably waiting around Christmas to buy it. Matter of fact, I feel like playing it now. :D
LBP would be a million seller per month if it was on the wii. But, being a semi casual game for a system at $400, never in a lifetime would be a system seller. Personally I dont like the game but I can understand people liking it. Ive played it two times only. But really I dont know if I dont like the game or is it that games like fallout, fable, gears, prince of persia, are consuming my gaming time. PS: Has anyone know if any website post the software list (npd) past the top 10? I hate that only you see the top 10. I want 11 to 20. Im sure LBP got to be somewhere in there.
Think a game has to sell a million in it's first week. The PSone and PS2 have both proven that SONY games rely on word of mouth. Very few have had big openings. Most games gain momentum over their lifetime and rack up amazing numbers. SONY knows that instead of building up a hype train and spending millions upon millions advertising they will let the game speak for itself. Nintendo does the same thing and I don't think it has ever hurt them... Microsoft has proven that most of their high profile games have big openings but quickly ride off into the sunset as sales quickly take a dive. Although some didn't like the movie Titanic it is the perfect example of SONY games that gain momentum as time passes...
It did sell a million copies a while back, VGchartz didn't update any of their game sells until current R2 had it's day 1 sells up for 3 weeks, I don't know if they've changed it or not. Edit They finally updated R2 to Nov. 16 @ .68 mil. There only about 3 weeks off, but it couldn't have sold that well in only 3 weeks could it. I mean it's only one of if not the best FPS this year, and one of the biggest games for the PS3 this year, so no it could have sold those last 3 weeks. :)
I have to laugh at people who put down PS3 sales numbers. I see people do it all the time. Uncharted didn't get off to a great start but gradually picked up. I guess since Halo and Gears of War sell huge numbers the first week some people think PS3 games have to do it too.
Hey is M$ hiring? I want a job like yours, I mean you must be getting paid by M$ to be worring about sales number. I guess you only played AAA games that sell 3 million copies right. If you don't have a PS3 what do you care about LBP and R2 sales numbers? I guess that's the new idiot thing of this generation....I can't play lbp and r2 so let's talk bad about them WOW. What has gaming come to, for people to act like this nextgeneration douchebags
Thats why WiiPlay is the BEST GAME EVER MADE
Oh man did I miss a lot? Now 1mil + sales count as flops too? What's next? Not being on 360 is a flop?
You're fooling yourself if you think it won't have the legs to cross the said mark
i agree little big planet is one of those games u can play anytime and be good at it unlike fps i will probably get the game when it becomes a greatest hits i think it will sell 3 million plus in lifetime sales
SOCOM, Reistance 2, LBP all come out around the same time so those games arnt all going to sell awesome cause not everyone can buy all those, luckly they delyed Killzone 2 or else who knows what the sales would have been like with 4 games competing for your money lol, anyways all those games are friggen awesome (i dont give a sh!t if you hate socom, i love it!)
"luckly they delyed Killzone 2" That was the smartest thing Sony did. We've waited this long. We can wait another two or three months. It's foolish for these companies to keep releasing everything at Christmas. If you have a smaller game you should wait until late January or February to March. That's a much better time now to release games. I buy games all year. I think most gamers do now.
lol so 360 fanboys is this still a flop?
Not a flop but has underperformed. PS3 owners said systems woud fly off the shelves upon release, but the game hasn't really flown off the shelves itself...Looks like a quality game, but somehow hasn't got the sales it should have. I think the sales could increase a lot more over time than your average games because the best level creators are surely gonna come up with some immense levels which make a purchase more attractive.
Please give me the names of the people who said that directly or you can stop talking right now. It's a new IP and it was delayed. How do you know people aren't waiting around Christmas to get this? Obviously 'long-term' flew pass your brains didn't it? 360 fans at it again with the multiple accounts. Why am I not surprised.
whoa there. Even I have seen the claims of LBP being the new mario. It was hailed the next big thing since sliced bread. But there's no way I'm gonna start digging through old articles and start looking for names for something as petty as a fanboy argument. instead im just going to go outside and have a smoke.
I just saw in xbox360fanboy.com the attach ratio is 8.1 games per console for the X360 I mean, i like my PS3 better as a console, but the x360 gaming is catching on fire!!!! But anyway, LBP will have a long and successful life cycle, no doubt
Flop! Confirmed! Lol seriously this whole retarded flop and AAA crap needs to die.
For a PS3 game.
mmmmm... hhhhhhhhhh.... that's good... what was that thing called again? bongo jazzooye?
We do know that PS3 games are selling slow, but eventually they'll still sell because of their qualities as consumer can't resist. It just a matter of time that all this games will reach million after million of sales. Just look at Uncharted, R&C, Resistance:FOM, Folklore, Motorstorm and alot more each of this title started slow but look at them now!
To say its the best game on the ps3, 1 million isnt really impressive, too human sold around a million and look how poor that game was. Will 1 million sales cover what it cost to develop the game? i dont know but Sony's big hitter need to be selling more for Sony profitability
Sales=/= quality Psychonauts on Xbox sold 90,000 copies Ico, SOTC sold pretty bad. On the other hand, Nintendogs, Wiiplay, Wiisports and some other shovelwares have sold into the tens of millions.
You such an xbot it's stupid. What now that it hit a million that's it the game dissappears . GTFO with you're aaron greenburg idiotic logic. Seems you guys all care about sales and not games. Go play Gears fro the 30th time cause that's all you have left. It will continue to sell because it is a good game. There is simply nothing else like it, unlike all the other shooters witch are a dime a dozen, when the next one comes out the old is quickly forgotten, until Killzone 2 that is. @earwax What is that supposed to prove? Why don't you show what those games did world wide? Oh I forgot you xbots think us is the entire world. Idiots. I don't know the actually numbers and don't pretend to know shiat but WOW is prob doing better ww on the Ps3 so that list proves that xbox only have gears 2, which is pretty much the sad truth. Spin that idiots.
'your' grammar is bad and u cite Killzone after calling shooters 'a dime a dozen'. who's the stupid 1, again??
someone needs to reread timmy's comment.
... they're too busy kicking Resistance 2 around, remember? Sony's little gem lived up to the ludicrous goal they assigned, so they had to find another whipping boy...
... then where are all these disagrees coming from?
Despite however many sales the game has I hope everyone has a chance to play this game (especially with friends). It's a great game that I can play anytime, and there are plenty of different varieties of maps to choose from, it really never gets old.
...and we already know that the Xbox360 is the biggest piece of shyt that gaming industry has dumped.
But yet the biggest peice of dump is arse raping the ps3 in sales on all fronts
YOU GOT SWERVED!
Sony fans in here not so critical about the source of the numbers now?=)
What is impressive is LBP has sold steady figures in all territories. In fact it looks like it's even picking up in Europe. This is a game that's going to keep on selling and selling and with DLC fees etc it's going to provide a nice income to MM. Expect Microsoft to release an Xbox360 "alternative" soon.
Boku is a programming language for children, designed to get them interested in object oriented programming, it in no way trying to be, or will ever be LBP. Not to mention boku is almost 3 years old.
Good for littlebigplanet, they deserve it for being innovative. God, since when a game rated at around 8 is a flop or sell less than 1mil is a flop. It might not make money for the company but as long as it is enjoyable to the gamer, it is not a flop regardless. Though it might force the developer to make something else which is kinda sad really. Some may find it enjoyable and some don't. I still play Phantom Dust for the old xbox till this day. I still think it is the best game so far and that i mean comparing to this next gen console games. But sell wise, i guess people called a flop. Whatever.
Couldn't agree more. Dues Ex, God of War and Soul Reaver are in my top 5 favorite games of all time. Look at the years they came out. All of them except GoW came out well over 5 years ago.
Hahahahha Flop sold a Million Hahahahha Flop sold a Million Hahahahha Flop sold a Million
LoL Vgchartz is always wrong the worst source for information out there. If this was true then it seem to me Sony would have posted this in their statement they released earlier today. Also even if this was true (Which I doubt) it still kinda bad consider this was supposed to be a system seller I expected more units then this to be sold by now but oh well. ------------- @Edge Maverick Lol you do know Uncharted came out before Mass Effect right So shouldn't Uncharted already eclipse Mass Effect in total sales?
Yeah baby you are absolutely right Uncharted came out 4 DAYS(HOLY CRAP 4 FRIKING DAYS)before mass effect.Uncharted=Epic fail And who cares that there was less than 10mil PS3 and 15mil 360 back in holiday 2007 /Epic sarcasm
VGchartz was already proven wrong by gamasutra and other websites. Even they said it was just guesstimates.
but eventually LBP will hit a million if it hasn't already. just look at motorstorm:p http://www.gamesindustry.bi... then resistance2 will hit a million and that will be 3 for 3 for sony. and to sony,that's all that matters.slow and steady sales making profit until they can drop the price of ps3 and really sell product and make profit in the coming years. 10 million or more console sales for 10 years=100+ million sold that would be another 3 for 3.ps1-102 million/ps2-140 million apocalypse............
Sony desperately needs it since they're 11.8 billion in debt. Firstkn1ghT......
like the 4 billion lost microsoft had with xbox1? then launching 360 and having another 2-3 billion lost. then another billion just to fix the system. something like that firstnight? do you think they will make up that money having the system selling at an entry price of $199? we shall see when they announce their end of quarter numbers. apocalypse................
thing is M$ is debt free.
Sony: Total cash: 5.8 billion Total debt: 11.86 billion http://finance.yahoo.com/q/... Microsoft: Total cash: 19.7 billion Total debt: 1.9 billion http://finance.yahoo.com/q/... I'm sure the ps3 is one of the main reasons why Sony is in serious trouble. And as you can see the 360 has been a huge success and easily chipping away at the original xbox's debt and RROD. Firstkn1ghT.....
