VGChartz - "The top five games include Gears of War 3 (X360), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (X360), Battlefield 3 (X360), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (PS3), and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii)."
Gears is clearly going to be a sales beast.
Bigger than COD though?
Of course not, COD is a monster when it comes to sales, sadly.
Gears deserves to beat cod. But it won't :(
Its not multiplat.
COD wouldnt stand a chance if it was on one console only.
You have to keep in mind that Gears is a third person shooter and not a first person so that will hinder it sales a little. However, the game isn't out into the fall and it is only June. That is just for America and doesn't include other countries + people who will just buy it without a pre order. I think this will be the best Gears yet.
WOW. I dont know why people are still preordering MW3 after looking at Battlefield 3. i bought every COD game since 4 and i am really tired of it so BF3 FTW!!
Aren't you dead? o_0
no the crack just knocked me out for a while. I am Back!
not sure if i believe these preorder sales due to the source being from vgchartz.
You believe everyone without any source saying VGChartz numbers are inaccurate though?
Gears of war 3 is pre-ordering higher than Reach, it is going to be a beast!! People say its cos its x360's only game, those people seem to ignore that batman, battlefield, skyrim, mw3 on 360 are all pre-ordering higher than their ps3 counterparts. Plus the fact that those those games on ps3 plus uncharted 3 and resistance 3 and twisted metal put together are still less than gears 3 pre-orders
wow. You were not kidding about Gears preorders being higher then three major PS3 titles put together. Wonder Why....
Well I don't preorder games. I'll be picking up gears, uncharted, and bf3 within the first week they're out if not day one. I gave up preordering when i preordered kz2 at best buy and when I walked in the store there we're at least 25 copies just sitting on the shelf. So i think that even though gears has higher preorder numbers than 3 top ps3 titles combined, the sales for all those games will be relatively high.
The attach rate on the Xbox 360 has always been really really good so it is no surprise games are selling well there.
Gears 3 is not only pre-ordering higher than Reach, it's pre-ordering higher than Reach, Black Ops (360), and Black Ops (PS3) all combined at the same point before their respective releases.
im dusting off my old box to play this 1 game
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is very low on pre-order chart i was expecting more support on this game.
Uncharted 3 beta starts tomorrow and I expect more support and the pre orders to rise after people check out the beta :)
These are AMERICAN pre order charts... ya know the place where xbox boys rule ;) I want to see world wide preorders, but ya know thats not gonna happen >_>
All the negative talk for COD seems to be confined to gaming websites. Outside of these sites, MW3 is ahead of Black Ops pre-order numbers. I really don't have interest in the COD series anymore, but these numbers are stunning. Speaking of stunning, MW3 for the PS3 is nearly 80,000 ahead of Uncharted 3.
Xbox owners, slow the hell down with your shooter pre-orders. Jeepers creepers you guys are one dimensional gamers.
And there is nothing you can do about it. I tried them all pal.
Gears 3 is a no brainer. My most anticipated game of 2011.
