Nintendo games in the first 5 and then the GTA games and (I think) 2 GT games followed by the Halos.

2 disagrees? Hmmm I wonder why. LOL

Braineater24483485d ago

Yea, it seems Nintendo always has fewer hits, but those hit games always sell a TON.

gaffyh3485d ago

This list makes me sick. So many crap games in the top 10, Wii Sports 44 million, that is ridiculous. *spit on nintendo and their casualness*

Montrealien3485d ago

here`s a crazy concept gaffyh, you could be mature and respect the fact that the casual market is larger then the so called self proclaimed fictional (hardcore) market and then go and enjoy the games you like on the consoles you have.

hay3485d ago

@1: Maybe cause it's VGchartz.

gaffyh3484d ago

@montrealien - Yeah I understand that, still it disgusts me that actual good games sell less than crap titles like WiiFit, WiiPlay and WiiSports.

Why would that mean GTA and Gran Turismo would have sold well?

Montrealien3484d ago (Edited 3484d ago )

yeah, I hear ya gaffyh ,just like great movies are usually not huge box office draws. The casual market Is just a bigger market, and Nintendo is pwning it atm.

DERKADER3484d ago

Not One PS3 exclusive on that list.

ChampIDC3484d ago (Edited 3484d ago )

I died a little inside seeing Nintendo's numbers on some of those games, but oh well, casuals buy into that crap. At least the Pokemon games deserve their sales. I knew they sold a lot, but I didn't know they sold that many.

Fox013484d ago

The Dark Knight sold a lot.

lloyd_wonder3484d ago

GT was slaughtering competition

xabmol3484d ago

Amazing observation!


jmare3484d ago

Isn't there only 1 360 exclusive? And barring that the list is thrown off by having WiiSports on the list, doesn't the Wii, DS, PS2, XBox, GBA all have more exclusives than the 360 on that list? And unless, I'm mistaken, the PSP, PS1, and the original Game Boy all have the same number of exclusives on the list, don't they? But all that doesn't matter because the 360 has one and the PS3 has none.

Walk tall.

Hutch23553484d ago

I hate that they always make it out like ooh wii sports solld 44 million. Um no they didn't they were given away with the console. Its not like you can buy a wii without it for 200 so to me that is gay. Also wii play come on you buy it with a controler. Wii sucks ps3 rulez

ZuperAmazingCooKie3484d ago

Metal Gear Solid 4 wasn't far from figuring. There's Halo 3 and Gears of War 1 for Xbox 360, but the only truly guaranteed exclusive is Halo, Gears is owned by Epic so eventually (in a long time) it could hit PS3.

I didn't buy Xbox 360 for Halo 3 and Gears of War anyway. There are much better games on Xbox 360 (exclusive or not), and PS3 has lots of games that are great, I don't need validation in sales. If sales were determining factors in the quality of a game then Wii would be the greatest console of the decade because it has the best selling games.

Generic knee jerk reaction, nuff said...

I understand the N4G crowd has a thing against their estimates, and they have reason for that, but this information is available, they just compiled it.

/on topic

Nintendo. just wow.... Man, MS and Sony each have only one franchise in there. One thing is for sure, Nintendo have always been the first party software kings.

bmw693485d ago

Wow I didn't expect Halo 3 to be above 2
