UK: LittleBigPlanet passes 300k; Gears 2 surpasses 600k

Gamezine: January's ESPLA sales awards reveal that LittleBigPlanet is still selling well in the UK, with Gears of War 2 finally reaching the massive 600k milestone.

We've been able to follow the sales of LittleBigPlanet in the UK by watching the ESPLA sales awards, which reports on video game life time sales milestones reached in the UK.

LittleBigPlanet has now been awarded the Platinum Award, meaning it has sold at least 300 thousand: it's next award, if it reaches it in the country, will only be achieved when the title sells 600 thousand in the UK alone.

Can you believe people said it failed at retail. Stupid...LBP must be at 2 million now.

If you look at it's number 4 (with KZ2 at number 1) - so what does that say? Either existing PS3 owners getting the gist, or new buyers getting their first PS3 games :D Good choices I'd say!

Resistance 2 at 200k in UK alone? Not bad.

"ftw" stands for "for the win." Alternatively, "ftl" stands for "for the loss"

why did you post it twice ?

What does FTW mean? Fun Times, weeeeeee!?

I wonder how those people felt when they popped Gears 2 into their Xbox 360 and realized the match-making system is completely broken, and then come to the epiphany that they're gonna return it because it doesn't make a very good single-player game.

techie3543d ago

>_< if there were that many returns then there wouldn't be as many people buying new games. 600k new copies have been sold in the UK.

marichuu3542d ago

What? Gears 2 was a lot of fun in single player, and a great challenge (sometimes unfair) on insane difficulty. The Co-op was almost perfect as well.
However the multiplayer was very poor... if you compare it to Epic's Unreal Tournament for example. I have no idea how they managed to screw the multiplayer up that bad, but single player was really great in my opinion.
