VG247: Chart-Track’s announced that LittleBigPlanet 2 has entered into the number one spot in this week’s UK charts. Full top ten for the week ending January 22 is below.
I expected top 5 for ME2. But congrats MediaMolecule: awesome LBP2 position :)
So did I o.O They were both released at the exact same time, so it was a tough decision for PS3 gamers. Mind you, I wonde what the PS3 charts are like, as thats the "All Formats" chart.
The better game won.
@Cratos8780 Ouch. Many Mass Effect fans wont like what you just said xD @Ryudo Im sorry to say, but there are sooooo many big releases out this year (Mass Effect 3, Uncharted 3, Portal 2, Killzone 3, Gears of War 3) so im afraid I can't see LBP2 getting game of the year.
To be honest if little big planet 2 wins game of the year this year then yeah it can be spoke of in the same league as Mass Effect 2, if it doesn't I will mark it down to console biased.
LBP2 is insane As for ME2, there are a lot of dual console or pc owners out there that already played it. And it still appeared to sell well. I'm actually a bit behind on games with Sly Collection, Brutal Legend, GoWI & II Collection, Tomb Raider: Underworld, etc just sitting there waiting to be played. So I can't rebuy ME2 yet to see the PS3 changes.
It wasn't that tough of choice for most PS3 people I think. ME2 is good and all but it is old news compared to LBP2.
I have not seen a single LBP2 advert on TV. This is a bleeding good effort to get to No. 1!!! My niece and nephew have the LBP cotton figures... my sisters had no idea it was a game lol... I just showed them the dolls on Play.com and they wanted them for the kids! Now one of them has bought one for herself, it sits on the boot shelf in her car looking out at people behind her! XD
You haven't seen a single LBP2 advert on TV?! The other week I was watching a few programmes sponsored by LBP2, so commercials for the game either side of the break.
Bb bbu but PS3 gamez dont haz the sellsz!!!
Nah afraid not, kinda gutted as well because I loved the Cullan Family and Janice adverts for the first game lol!!
I thought mass effect would do better too. But I wonder how many downloaded it. That could be some big numbers for downloads too. Just started playing mass effect 2, wow that game is awesome. first day already 6 hours into it LOL
dont expect next time
Not surprised from LBP2, the 1st one sold over 4.5 million copies.
Good numbers for LBP2... Where is DC Universe? EDIT: full top 40 individual chart http://www.chart-track.co.u...
a well-deserved topping of the charts, knocking off Black Ops in the process. Shame about Mass Effect 2 though, I'd imagine Bioware would be slightly disappointed with that chart placement. It should have done better.
Kinect Sports still in the top 10 very nice. People should also note ME2 also includes the PC and 360 versions in this chart which makes it even more disappointing for the PS3 version.
"Kinect Sports still in the top 10" And this is what's disappointing for Xbox.
Bub for you man that made me laugh.
the more casual games are sold the less core games are made
trolololololol. this isn't about kinect or kinect sports.
i refuse to pay 40 pounds for ME2, 1 year old game, i dont care about dlc which should have been in game in first place. I remember last year 360 version received price cut month after release to something like 24 pounds. Im waiting that most likely. congrats lbp2
i can see why your mad dude, but really mass effect 2 is one awesome game. If your into rpgs, action shooters you should still consider it. But man lbp2 is awesome also, wow so many great games, so little time LOL
who the hell cares about ME2 when you have awesome ps3 exclusive to buy! gz lpb!!!
Who cares? Perhaps PS3 only owners who haven't had the chance to play one of the greatest games this generation?
Title is total fail.Vg247 should learn to read. "ME2 PS3 charts at seven" No it is NOT at 7,those are combined charts(PC,360,PS3,DS,Wii,PSP) Units charts will be released soon.
I think 99% of ME2 sales this week would be of the PS3 version. I mean who would be buying 360 and PC versions still now?
ME2 is lovely and deserves to be played by PS3 users - did feel a bit gutted paying £30 more than Xboxers can pick it up for though... Sony must be pleased to see GT5 outpacing multi-system Need for Speed again 3 months after launch. I plan to pick up LBP2 soon but am utterly addicted to DC Universe Online, it really is an awesome achievement to make a MMO work so well on a console - makes me excited to see Free Realms and The Agency on the PS3 - big HD screen MMOs FTW!
ME2 did not chart as high because: 1. A year old game that dual owners might have it already on 360/PC. 2.People downloaded it off PSN instead. 3.Not many copies were shipped out 4.Gamers had to choose between either this great game or LBP2. Either way 7th is still good and whether PS3 owners buy ME2 or LBP2 they are getting a GOTY Quality Game so its a win for all.
I think ME2 didnt do so well because most PS3 owners is playing it on LBP 2. ;)
I got ME2 day 1, i'll get LBP2 later cause I just play M rated games more but both games r great, I cant stop playing ME2 when i'm not at work or sleeping. Note: I only own a PS3
