Mass Effect 2 and God of War III lead the way in the first preorders chart of the new year.
Wow... i'm suprised ps3's got so many games higher than 360, including multiplat games. Then again the only reason the ps3 bad company 2 is higher than 360 is because of the beta, but still.
Don't be surprised...things are beginning to change, my friend. ;D
I guess all those effort that went into dooming MAG was just a waste of time.
interesting to note that out of the top three ps3 games 2 of them are fps games Looks like ps3 gamers have almost turned into shooter fans like their 360 buddies
Ah no... If that were the case those two shooters would be outselling GoW3 4-1. Kinda like how every shooter on the 360 passes the lifetimes sales of great games like Forza 3, Lost Odyssey and Mass Effect in just a few weeks after release.
"Looks like ps3 gamers have almost turned into shooter fans like their 360 buddies" You're an idiot with that statement. Since when did PS3 owners not like shooters? The PS3 started with one of it's most successful shooter, Resistance. Other shooters like Warhawk, the COD series, MGS4, Killzone are top selling games for the PS3. You should stop generalizing and think before you post.
Guess people were burned by the crappy programming of the first one that maybe they are waiting to hear the reviews first?
"16 | Heavy Rain | PS3 | 6 | 5,598 | 35,533" DAMN IT! Good to see some support for WKC:I
Gran Turismo numbers are starting to snowball even though there is no set release date for the US.
Amazing for God of War III and MAG!
yea, lots of people are interested in MAG, hopefully ther are plenty of people to play with for several months to come!
I think MAG is interested in concept, but won't be successful as am actual game. It'll be the communism of gaming. Just my thoughts.
you haven't played the beta yet have you?
And while it was an entertaining game, I cannot see it replacing Modern Warfare 2 as my FPS of choice. If I had friends who were interested in buying it, then I might get it as well. At this point though, it looks like it wont be in my library.
Im surprised GT5 is up there even with no release date, thats gonna be a huge game. Multiplatform games are surprisingly selling better on PS3 even with the double install base the 360 has, which is kind of amazing.
i doubt those pre orders are from beta players.... i think its more the hype around 256 ppl fighting in a constant war that will bring numbers. I look at it as round one of the real step away from XBL vs PSN talk. This is just the start. Few years down the road if this works it will become the next step in online gaming... Im in and will be playing S.E.R.V didnt play the beta it ruined PS3 socom for me
but it'll be safer to just do the beta and then skip the final release if it aint what you think. however, the beta is awesome, the Socom beta was a hogwash crapfest, even more worse than mag was in the closed beta. How ever, this game is going to be really great in the final release. I even had a chance to play the recent build that they showed off at the CES show this past weekend. ^^ it looks better than the beta, all i can say is Mag will be sweet, having played the beta i'm glad i gave the game a chance and didnt dump it like i did in the private beta. and yes. SVER all the way ^^
I guess alot of people have tried the private and open beta and like it. I hope it knocks a million with in a month. it deserves to prove the haters wrong as it is an awesome game.. as for God of War 3, heh, this game is already on it's way to high sales. the second game sold 2 million in 3 days... i think this time, GOW3 will prolly sell 4 million in a matter of a week. it'll be interesting to see all the work come out for it.
I'm not sure how accurate these numbers are from VG Chartz, but I have to admit, I'm kinda surprised how high MAG's U.S. pre-order numbers are. And God of War 3 at 311K and it's still at least another 2 and a half months away? Wow...That's like, HALF of what Uncharted 2 sold in October NPD.... looks like God of War 3 is on track to outdo Uncharted 2's initial numbers.
Trusting these numbers doesn't really matter because plenty of those games with low pre-orders will most likely outsell the ones with the highest pre-orders by 3 or 4 times. Come on man Mario Galaxy 2 has poor pre-oder numbers but we all know how some of these games will sell in reality when the times come. Some of those games with the highest pre-orders are games people have been waiting 4 years for.
Yeah i'm surprised by the amount of pre-orders for GoW 3 but i usually never pre-order any games myself. Even i am thinking of going all out with this one though. I think will get the Ultimate Edition.
i think your making up those GOW numbers up. god of war 2 did 850k in its first 3 days. not 2 million. it did 2.5 million life time and god of war 1 did 3 million. these games did this on a much higher install base. i wouldnt expect god of war 3 to sell more then 3m or you will be disapointed.if i had to guess id say GOW3 will sell 1 million its first week. i cant belive your saying 4m in a week. that would be nonscence if you were predicting 4m for its life time. next time please dont make stuff up. http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...
Ah, so many games to get >< I have to go pre order GOW3 still, and Gt5, modnation racers, and il be picking up Mass effect 2 and MAG. possibly heavy rain as well. So many games..so little money =[
1 Mass Effect 2 X360 2 65,108 317,181 2 God of War III PS3 N/A 12,566 311,285 3 MAG: Massive Action Game PS3 2 8,315 219,781 ps3fanboys... please buy yours PRECIOUS exclusives...
why dont u buy your games, lol at mass effect 2 300k, out of 20 million 360s in US. oooh even dantes inferno and ff13 and battlefield badcompany 2 has more preorders on ps3. look like 360 fgs only buy shootes.
Preorder sales.. About as relevant as MAG and too human. (In other words, not very!).
-_- Mass effect 2 is due in about 2 weeks, while GOW3..3 months? And Mass effect is only beating it by 6 thousand. please buy your exclusives as well.
Come on No FLAME war over Pre order numbers this is getting carried away and did you see all the PC games in that list?
vgchartz dont track pc sales so no pre-order tracking for pc games as well.
I'm glad to see Mass Effect 2 up there, should do close to 1 million sales in first week. Preorders don't really determine a lot of game's success though. Mario Galaxy 2 is way down on that list but will probably outsell most, if not all of those games on there. Best of luck to all the games. Especially SC:C. :)
i think mass effect 2 will do like 1.1 million first week. the reason mario galaxay 2 is so low is because it is a very casual game on a very casual console. wii games dont pre-order well because casuals dont pre-order. i also agree SC C needs some luck bcause those numbers arnt great for that awsome looking game.
Not trying to downplay mass effect but i don't think it will sell a million in a week. Its a great game but a good majority of 360 fans are far more interested in MW2 and halo. It will reach a million but not in a week, i mean look at forza 3. A lot of fans said this and that and it didn't sell very well. I will be getting Mass effect 2 though so you can add 1 to that list =]
Why, I think it could. Sure us 360 owners are probably more interested in COD and Reach, but what do you think we'll be buying early 2010? It's not like we'll be playing COD all the time... I hope. I have a slew of games to buy this year. Holy Sh*t.
i think forza 3 is selling quit well. it should finish with like 3.5 million units.mass effect 2 should get up to like 500k pre orders as it is up to its release. and at mininum it should sell 770k first week.
But MAG, despite it's "mediocrity", has a very nice selling point, especially in America. What is it? 256 People apparently want to see what it's like.
it seems ps3 gamers preorder everything. Shame those numbers probably represent nearly 1/2 of the total sales of those games.
