In a reversal of fortunes from the PlayStation 3 chart, Namco Bandai's Enslaved has proven more popular than Konami's Castlevania: Lords of Shadow in the UK's official Xbox 360 sales rankings.
"Here's what the full PS3 chart for the week ending October 9 looks like: 01. FIFA 11 (EA) 02. Halo: Reach (Microsoft) 03. Dead Rising 2 (Capcom) 04. Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 (Konami) 05. F1 2010 (Codemasters) 06. Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (Namco Bandai) 07. Caslevania: Lords of Shadow (Konami) 08. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Activision Blizzard) 09. WRC: FIA World Rally Championship (Tradewest) 10. Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock (Activision Blizzard)" Looks like lucky UK PS3 owners have gotten a Halo Reach port!
CVG article FAIL. are these guys high? xD LMAO
Just amateurs. LOL @ the Halo Reach port comment.
I'm just glad Enslaved sold pretty solidly so far. Thought it wouldn't.
01. Soccer (EA) 02. Shooter (Microsoft) 03. Hack and Slasher (Capcom) 04. Soccer (Konami) 05. Racing (Codemasters) 06. Action Adventure (Namco Bandai) 07. Action/Fantasy Adventure (Konami) 08. Shooter (Activision Blizzard) 09. Racer (Tradewest) 10. Rhythm Game (Activision Blizzard) Wait, I thought Xbox 360 players only bought shooters and variety was only allowed on ps3. . .weird.
Lack of originality has plagued Xbox games, not variety. The only truly original Xbox games I own are Alan Wake and Limbo, both largely ignored by the majority of the Xbox community. Games such as LittleBigPlanet and Heavy Rain (even Flower on PSN), have been commercial successes on the PS3, while (the excellent) Alan Wake tanked on the 360. MS needs a Media Molecule or Team Ico, if they want to offer their consumers a different sort of gaming experience. (Btw the only Xbox exclusive on the list is a Shooter!)
Alan Wake and Limbo were both on the wrong console. 360 gamers (at least, the large majority of them) do not appreciate games that are not mindless shooters. On Ps3, niche games like Valkyria Chronicles, Heavy Rain, etc. enjoy success which would be near impossible to have on the 360. If Alan Wake had released on PS3/PC, it would have been technically far impressive and sold a lot more.
Yes, Alan Wake sold poorly because 360 owners are brainless. It clearly had nothing to do with releasing at the same time as RDR... /s
I agree about Alan Wake... One of the best exclusives and one of the most original games on the Xbox 360 and the community did not show up for it... I love the game...
Except one. Guess which one is the exclusive. The shooter. And which games are the most successful? That's right, the shooters. That's how the Xbox community has always been.
what fps do you have to buy nowadays ?
Good news for Ninja Theory.
Castlevania > Enslaved
I agree, but Enslaved is still a great game. Castlevania is just awesome.
not good news for gamers
Good news for Ninja Theory, the game truly deserves it.
but does't deserve to outsell CLOS
It does to people who don't like what is essentially a button masher.
hmm, i own both and prefer enslaved to castlevania. i love castlevania, but comon man. they are BOTH button mashers! enslaved is more original and different concept. its a refreshing change, it just doesnt feel like anything else out there at the moment. in some ways, i even prefer it to uncharted! castlevania feels like god of war and devil may cry. it succeeds at that type of game, but we seriously have seen it done quite a few times before. enslaved is slightly better people. the reviews and all the articles speak for itself. just accept it guys. cant wait for splatterhouse next!

stupid fuck tards lol yes im a hardcore dmc fan
kinda shows shows which gamers no what a quality game is
Cmon, why playing Enslaved when I can play the vastly superior Heavenly Sword...
when was F1 2010 released? I really did not expect that to still be that high up there....
This Just shows how Xbox gamers Want An Uncharted 2 like experience, so they buy Enslaved. Lol
If that's a fact, they must be pretty disappointed.
well, enslaved is better than U2 so haha!
on so many levels lol
Castelvania is by far the better game. It's unbelievable how broken Enslaved is. What's with the lag in the control system? Animations need a ms or two to get queued. Wth. It could have been the better game, but it just isn't. As a platformer it doesn't even come close to UC(2) - even though it seams to borrow heavily from there. Fighting scenes and style is OK, even if a bit dull (but so is Castlevania). But there at least, all the anims run seamlessly and fluid. According to the combined charts, Castlevania still sold more than Enslaved. Rightly so - means, either both sold much more on the PS3, or Castlevania sold more on the PS3 than Enslaved on the 360. Looks like I stand correct: http://www.chart-track.co.u...

castlevania is clearly the better game but each his own...
