You've already seen the top ten best-selling games in the U.S. from November, but what about the top twenty? Surely there were some titles you'd expect to be represented - and some you might not.
Wow Wii is purely a under 15 console. I can't imagine ever playing any of its games. Still it shared 7 slots in top 20 with 360. PS3 however is only able to match 2 games of ps2 in top 20. Sad day indeed. Btw, what happened to "LBP released in end of oct, so we'll wait for november figures"? Edit:@nathan: I'm sure you'll find 100s of news/stories on n4g touting B&K, LIps and you're in movies to be killing ps3, GOTY, million console seller, been in development for years, only with "Teh Power of 360"... RIGHT???
Definitely sad,Banjo Kazooie completely tanked-'Lips' and 'You're In The Movies' as well. This makes you wonder;Are Rare next on the chopping block? edit:So that's the excuse for it's atrocious sales,it's not as popular as LBP which has sold over a Million copies worldwide?Interesting.
''Btw, what happened to "LBP released in end of oct, so we'll wait for november figures"?'' Wait for december
I think you are nothing but a fanboy! Do you even care about Ps3 or it's games? You seem to be more concerned with the 360 and everything about it! Are you sure you don't have a love/hate thing for 360 (you love it so much that you hate it)? At least compare 360 games to Ps3 games or something!
"Are Rare next on the chopping block? " "Are rare" LOL well while you've been playing the "large" number of "good" ps3 games this year, I see you've been struggling to pass elementary school! lol "are rare"
You dont want to play the highest rated game this gen??? Oh and you probably call yourself a gamer too...lol... Something tells me you're in the 15 and under crowd....
Don't tell me it didn't even crack the top 20 in it's first month of release?
Dont worry, B&K has long legs will sell well over next few years. Yeah, and also lets wait for Chirstmas sales, and also jan, feb, m....dec 2009 . You know the drill, i'm sure u guys know more about it. Edit: http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... I'm sure you'll be there in comments section.
I doubt it has the kind of legs like say Ratchet&Clank:Tools of Destruction(over a Million copies sold worldwide),to be honest right now Banjo Kazooie:Nuts&Bolts is definitely looking like a critical and commercial failure. Edit:Checking that link it does look like Europe carried LittleBigPlanet to the Million copies sold mark,considering the Ps3 has a much larger install base than the 360 in EU it's not really a surprise to most.
Critical failure? if it wasn't for the Wired review, the game would be over 80 on metacritic.
@ Nathan Drake 1. Banjo wasn't well received by critics and who knows how bad it sold. 2.LBP didn't rank either and there was no excuse this time..it had a full month for getting sales 3.Nobody knows if LBP sold 1 million ..so stop making false claims ..because those early reports of LBP selling a million were debunked ..because VGchartz numbers were actually a lot higher than those reported by the NPD in Oct and by sony in NOV .. ( oct- 215k- Nov 145k) and no one knows about EU. 4.Ps3 does NOT have a much larger install base than the 360 ..oh BTW ..as Sad as it sounds..a failure ..is a failure.. what do you do with high reviews (LBP) ..if its not going to reach people's homes?
Both LBP and MS2 failed to make the top 20, no wonder LBP is still struggling to reach that 1ml mark I wonder if Sony is taking note, that their exclusive are failing to sell decently because if they're not Killzone 2 will be the next commercial failure because unlike a game like R2 it doesnt have a large following from its last installment
Both games are close (or over) to 1 million worldwide which is truly not bad at all. But, basically, in the U.S., you have to be a Shooter, Guitar Hero, or Madden if you want to make the top 50 list, unless you're a Wii game...
Didn't seem like R2 made the grades by many.. Sony should do better than MS with platformers since they have some well known one but LBP will continue to sell. Yeah it could of done better but a (PRIVATE that just enlisted) it was thrown in trenches while there was a (R2 + Geow2 war) about to begin. Well that War was over quick. LBP will continue to fight even with KZ2 around the corner.(Yes another Warzone) What puzzles me is SOCOM, which is a Veteran. What happened? It should be a system seller, when we think about how it was on the PS2. I'm sure some were waiting to Upgrade, just as Fable 2 for the Xbox 360 but I Do know Brah. I'm scratching my thinking a lot of Hardcores got their PS3's and these games should sell faster to that crowd first. OF course that's if a casual gamer cannot afford a PS3, that's fine but you have around 17 million or so user-base.
2008 PS3 lineup = EPIC FAIL!
2008 Xbox360 flop line up Infinite Undiscovery flop The Last Remnant flop Banjo Kazooie flop Destroy All Humans flop too human flop 2009 Xbox360 lineup = EPIC FAIL oh! wait you barely have any lineup at all. YOU=LEGENDARY M$ ASS SUCKER=EPIC FAIL
Most games are flooping cuz you ppl are too busy hyping up the Delaystation 3 and buying bluray movies anime porno is booming as we speak.
2008 Playstation 3 flop line up Motorstorm 2 flop Singstar flop Socom flop SIREN Blood Curse flop Haze flop 2009 Playstation 3 lineup = EPIC FAIL oh! wait you barely have any lineup at all. YOU=LEGENDARY $ONY ASS SUCKER=EPIC FAIL
@Zulwarn i will give you a £1000 if you can list all the known PS3 exlusives for 2009 and all the 360 ones and make the 360 list bigger go on! its a £1000 man :)
Name all the ps3 games that will be in the number one spot for more than a month and I will triple your deal
I think both line-ups will be just fine. Hell, except for a few exclusives per year, they're pretty much one and the same. Two games in '09 that I'm looking forward to are the Halo and GTA expansions/DLC. I know that you Sony fanboys like to play down DLC, but in the cases of these two games, they are new campaigns with new stories and new characters. It's like getting a mini-sequel for a cheaper price. Aside from that, I can't wait for RE5, and I have high hopes for Ghostbusters.
That will be hard to do since MS has not announced them yet, wait a month or two though!
Where is LBP????? This is SAD. What the f do all idiot ps3 owners buy anyway???
To many great games released around the same time ....that is why KZ2 was pushed back.
You meant to say too many Boo-Ray movies released around the same time. :)
i said game [email protected] not bluray
''To many great games released around the same time'' That excuse only works on 360. KZ2 got pushed back because it wasnt ready.
many great games on the PS3 that no one buys while TDK is breaking Blu-ray sales record.
The only difference is, when the "too many great games at one time" excuse is used for the 360...it's actually true.
wait weres little big p
wow no little big
lol damn even with installed based of 17million ps3 games sales still suck omg when 360 installed based was 10million games sales were high
I never thought about it but you are correct. PS3 just cant move the same amount of games as the 360 did even when the 360 was at 17m...I guess its hard to have game time when you spend it all on N4G trying to brag about how great your console is that you never play games for..With the level Sony is represented at on this site you'd think they could actually get good games sales.. I remember reading how SMG was a complete flop for not getting 6 million in sales when the Wii had an install base of 15m but LBP is a great commercial success not even reaching 1 million in two months on a system with 17m sold. Most of the people that own a PS3 own one for movies and have no interest in games. Sales have proven it time and time again. Sadly too many N4g Sony fans are 12 and cant hold jobs to buy all those killer games so sales never amount to anything.
only know 6 people with a PS3. Three of them are gamers and the other 3 bought it for Blu-ray.
and secondly it wans't well recieved with all the problem it launched with and again. The game had Zero Marketing!!!
I had a roomate in college and that's all he played was Socom.. That game should of been a System Seller, regardless.
why is everyone cracking on BK no one every said it was a aaa title but LBP and R2 those were supposed to be " game changers" and there nothing more than junk. Numbers dont lie its taken them over a month to get to 1 mill.
but sonyfans are desperate for something to brag on it really is ashamed
All 360 fans have to brag about, is How much MS sells when they desperately drop the price in hopes of boosting sales. They only sold 100k more than they did last year at a significantly lower pricepoint(the wii)while the PS3 has boosted its sales 85% year to date from last year, with the same 'most expensive' pricepoint. Playstation fans can Play LBP/MGS4/GT5P/ValkireChronicle s/R2/Motorstorm2 and the rest of the multiplats. 360 fans fan look at Microsoft's sales, and sit around waiting until Epic fixes Gears2's broken online. When it comes down to it, you are either gaming with AAA's.. or cheerleading a slight Lifetime sales gap between the two consoles that are both ultimate really getting killed by the Wii. So yeah, good job to microsoft, they sold more 360s. Good job to Sony, they delivered a 2008 full of exclusives that all rated higher than 360 exclusives.
yeah It's the same here. half and half. I wonder about some of my "gamer friends" when they are more excited about Tropic Thunder Bluray than KZ2 or R2.
my movie is the sh!t man go out and buy Tropic Thunder
