Woot for Conviction!
TOP 40 ENTERTAINMENT SOFTWARE - INDIVIDUAL FORMATS (UNITS), WEEK ENDING 17 April 2010 http://www.chart-track.co.u...
A new game going top on its first week?? OMG like that never happens!!! As for GOW I knew it wouldn't last long over here been saying it for a long time now as just like with previous god of war games Sony have not advertised it. Not one little bit. It's huge in America but in UK its just another game to people here who haven't played it.. Oh Forza 3 is in the top 10 because... It's a budget game in the UK you can get it for only £17 and it comes free with most 360's. Well worth picking up for £17 mind you but that's why it's still holding up in terms of sales.. No way it would be top 40 if it was still full price. http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/...
forza £17? you can't find this game for that price in many places i've never seen it most places sell it for 30 mate but yeah it does get bundled alot
Don't be so anxious to broadcast your insecurities.
Amazon sell it for £17 check the link play.com have the special edition for £17 http://www.play.com/Games/X... So don't try to be clever here and prove me wrong as amazon and play.com are the 2 biggest non specialised websites for multimedia in the UK. But heres a few more sites for you http://www.thehut.com/games... http://gamestation.co.uk/Ga... http://www.game.co.uk/Games... See even GAME and gamestation the 2 biggest specialised game sellers sell it for £17.. I think that proves not only are you a liar but a fanboy to boot. Nuff Said..
MY BAD your right but that sh*t's still 40pound brandnew at my local gamestation and 50 in game
Talk about long legs. So much about forza 3 being a flop huh?
So you guys are saying it is a flop?
360 fanboys said LittleBigPlanet was a flop for not selling millions in the first week. If LBP was a flop (which it isn't) then Forza is a flop (which it isn't)
Forza 3 really got some serious legs. Simply refused to drop below the 15th position even after sitting on the shelves for 6 months. Is it just me but is FF13 on 360 outselling the PS3 version in the UK? ANyway, great debut for Conviction. Still have not gotten my copy because i got exams coming up.
Wouldn't surprise me, must be close at least. 360 has a much better install base here. Ahh exams, I don't miss those days! Good luck!
Fishy fingers is right the Xbox is keeping its stranglehold on the British population here because a very high percentage of people are what we call chavs. Chavs love cars, Xbox has forza and PS3 not so much. Expect it to change when Gran Turismo is released. Just my theory and bitter social commentary ;P
so what your saying is,the real home of chav scum is the ps3? yeah thats about right.but you forgot about the pikeys
Its advertised as a 360 exclusive over here in the UK... Even though its available on PS3..
Let's see what's fun here -Forza 3 beats God of War 3 -Modern Warfare 2 is still a beast -Final Fantasy XIII (360) is #26 and PS3 version is out of the top 40 -Heavy Rain is doing pretty good in UK -ODST is back on the top 40
God of War has never been a huge seller in Europe anyway.
Agreed read through all my comments on god of war and UK and you will see I always said GOW will never sell well in the UK.
Looks like the UK love the 360 more than the US, ffxiii 360 > ffxiii ps3 is pretty extreme, and Forza's legs are just ridiculous.
What's about to go down here/ 360 blah blah blah, greatest blah blah blah, not a fanboy blah blah, but 360 games>PS3 games blah. Alan Wake, blah, Halo sales, blah, blah blah, biggest game in history blah Fact. Oh look at the PS3 fanboys! whine, whine, whine, 360 article whine whine whine, worst whine whine whine. Insecure durr durr durr, jealousy derp derp lol durrr.
the ps3 is dead in the uk. its what the xbox is in japan.thats why the ps3 will never overtake the xbox..japan cancels npd and the uk cancels japan sales.
You know the biggest gaming market cancels out everything and gives the lead to the Ps3, just thought i'd point that out :)
UK sales don't make up for the entire euro market. and I'll bet you far less people in the UK are gamers than in Japan. With all this crap bots are spouting out you would think that the 360 had an incermountable lead but it's less than 5million, and the 360 has had One year and 5 or 6 mos. on shelves over the PS3. Compare the sales of the 360 to the sales of the PS3 since both were on shelves and the PS3 is clearly ahead...BTW PS3 has momentum, and GT 5 coming out soon, a relatively huge franchise in Europe.
ok sitris wotever you say..mr specualtion.LMAO *dumb droid lookin at my profile, following me around the site* 2 can play that game
Wrathman I live in the UK. Sure, most people I know who own a console have a 360. But they said when it breaks they ain't getting another one... they want a PS3. And if GT5 comes out before that happens (unlikely given 360's reliability rate) they will sell the 360 for the PS3. Suck it! You love it! 360 install base is THIRD!!!
360 install base in UK + lack of sony ads + 360 ads = the obvious i think what GoW3 pulled off in the US is far more impressive
Those chavs love to paint cars in Forza
Just quick to express his butthurt sentiments.
Game is still 50 where i live
same ere my friend
