Bestselling Publishers of 2011 so far

MaxNintendo: "We often hear people say sales don’t matter in the videogame industry. However, at the end of the day, sales are what make or break videogame developers and publishers, decide whether a franchise will continue to live, or die in the dust, and is ultimately responsible for driving the industry. So, we have gandered through several sources and sales specialist sites in order to compile a list of 2011′s best-selling publishers so far."

I'm happy that Sony and Nintendo are doing well.

I am, on the other hand, unhappy that Ubisoft are mainly there because of Just Dance, and that Activision are there because of Word of Warcraft and Call of Duty.

Nintendo153087d ago

I agree.

I hope Battlefield 3 does well compared to MW3. It really deserves it.

gamingdroid3087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

I cringe even more when EA is there despite introducing online pass to the industry, game/account deletion after two years of inactivity on Origin, prevent access to games if banned from their websites and nasty DRM.

Ubisoft is also guilty of nasty DRM.

Compare that to Activision, whom is only guilty of releasing games every year... I will take the latter any day!

With so many exclusives out this year, I expected sony to have alot more sales in the software department. 1.5 million for lbp 2 is disappointing considering it is selling less than the original which released 30 million ps3's ago. 1.3 million for gt5 this year is impressive however.

Rrobba3087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

Yea, I think Uncharted 3 in particular can manage at least 2-3 million this year, with another 1-2 million next year, similar to what Uncharted 2 managed to sell.

Nintendo153087d ago

Uncharted 3 will likely be my GOTY 2011, but I can't see it selling as much as Uncharted 2 did.

Rrobba3087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )


I disagree. It might be tough, but with a bigger PS3 install base now, good review scores (which I'm sure Uncharted 3 will get) and decent marketing, Uncharted 3 will be able to match, or even surpass Uncharted 2's success.

LaChance3087d ago

With all the talk about PS3 exclusives by the fanboys on this site one would think that a lot of PS3 owners actually cared.

Sales actually show that most PS3 owners dont give a fukk and prefer playing COD.

Uncharted 3 will likely do well, but I worry about some games. With LittleBigPlanet 2 and InFamous 2 both selling under expectations, one wonders if people wilol still buy the PS3 exclusives, especially with the recent 3DS price vut, near Vita release and big third-party games like Battlefield 3 and Assassin's Creed.

spektical3087d ago

infamous 2 on track to sell more than infamous...

i think lbp2 didnt sell as much as the first because really, there wasnt much new things to do.. i always thought it wouldve been better to release extras as dlc for lbp (such as the water pack). kz3 didnt do as well as kz2, because GG decided to cater to COD fanbase, and basically created a MP that is unbalanced and has no image of its own.

LOGICWINS3087d ago

LBP 2 didn't sell as much as the first because it wasn't hyped as much as the first by Sony...simple.

Hopefully, UC3 finds its way into movie theaters like Infamous 1 did. Thats a sure fire way to kick start sales.

It's funny after all this time for you to come out of the woodwork just to pretend that PS3 exclusive aren't selling.

I'm sure Sony is pissed that many of the games that were released this year are million sellers. Poor guys. And, I'm pretty sure that COD line can be said for the 360 too.

Take your quotations elsewhere. Everyone who has read any of Lachance's post in the past know where he stands when it comes to the PS3. I'm not surprised that you would come to his defense though.

"It's funny after all this time for you to come out of the woodwork just to pretend that PS3 exclusive aren't selling."

I don't think hes saying that PS3 exclusives aren't selling, he's just saying that they are selling below expectations.

Hes also pointing out that its ironic that a COD game(a franchise loathed by many N4Gers) is the best selling PS3 game of all time while a PS3 exclusive like Uncharted 2/MGS4(considered to be the best games on the console by many N4Gers) didn't sell nearly as much as the last COD game.

Theres a HUGE disparity between what people on this site think is good and what the majority of gamers think is good.

mario kart, pokemon, mario land 3ds during the holidays for the win

Jac5al3087d ago

They picked up the marketing for Infamous 2, seen like 6 commercials yesterday on NBC for it. Pretty sure it's going to outsell Infamous. + It's also available for DL on the PSN store, which sales are not tracked.
