Wow, Gears is a beast. Killin' everything else in preorders.

gamingdroid3095d ago (Edited 3095d ago )

Yes, yes it is and the goodness is coming in exactly 3 weeks. I cannot wait for Gears 3!!!

CoD: MW3 pre-order numbers are looking really good, almost outpacing Gears 3.

otherZinc3095d ago

Those are some [email protected] Uncharted 3 pre-order #'s?

Isn't cracking that top ten anytime soon. Seems like those million GOTY awards for Uncharted 2; maybe the consumer didn't agree.

Raven_Nomad3095d ago

And they say there are no games on Xbox 360. Look's to me Xbox 360 owners are buying games in swarms!

DirtyLary3095d ago

They have one exclusive, of course they are going to eat up the multiplatform games too.

IM_A_NINJA3095d ago

There is only one PS3 exclusive on that list. Looks like PS3 gamer's are buying the same multiplatform games as the 360 owners, except in smaller numbers.

Not sure why people still continually say ignorant things here.

gamingdroid3095d ago (Edited 3095d ago )

Now, what the heck happened to BF3 on the PS3? Madden NFL 12 on the PS3 out-pre-ordered BF3? The total pre-orders are about twice as much as well! Color me surprised...

Even more surprised is perhaps the only PS3 exclusive, Uncharted 3 at number 12?

It had a public beta too. From what I have seen Uncharted 3 looks like it is shaping up to be a great game.

The Meerkat3095d ago

I can't believe Skyrim (PS3) has 3 times less pre-orders than the 360 version.

kingdoms3094d ago (Edited 3094d ago )

Most of the fanbase is on the 360. But still the 360 fanbase has grown so fast over the last year I'm not surprised. All the casuals buying the 360 as of late have core friends and family plus the new gamers buying Kinect also jump in the core experience. Microsoft knew Kinect would open up the market to a new audience plus offering a new experience for the core but also knew Kinect would be a cash cow trojan horse for core games boosting 1st,2nd,3rd party games.

@ Raven_Nomad I think your first sentence could actually provide a compelling reason for your second sentence.

CGI-Quality3095d ago

Shame he can't respond, but then again, it's his typical responses that put him there. :D

OT: Yes, Gears 3 is a beast, for whatever reason. It's about to rake in some major dough for Epic/Microsoft! Considering the beta, I'm more than stoked to play it (I'm picking up the Gears-themed console just for that purpose).

mcstorm3095d ago

Looks like BF and MW3 are going to sell better in the 360 than the PS3 and I though BF3 would sell better on the PS3 but looks like im wrong. Good to see some of the 3rd party games looking strong but would like to see FM4 in there but then again saying that i expect FM4 to sell better in Europe than USA as USA is FPS home.

Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary is creeping up the charts as well. Not too shabby, look's like the the Xbox 360 players aren't worried about Battlefield 3 not being shown or talked about on the console. It actually worry's me enough to not pre order it, still might buy it at some point, but would like to see how it turns out on the Box.
