Wow assassins creed > uncharted 3 by 100,000.

trunkswd2592d ago

That is compared to the Xbox 360 version of Assassins Creed though. Uncharted 3 is 100,000 ahead of the PS3 version of Assassins Creed.

Do sales really matter when it comes to Uncharted 3? We all know it will be incredible based off the last 2. And if you are not playing it, you are missing out!

gamingdroid2592d ago (Edited 2592d ago )

What is going on with Uncharted? I believe the second game, Uncharted 2, sold very well.

Jobesy2592d ago

Uncharted 3 is performing better than Uncharted 2 preorder wise. U2 opened week 1 with nearly a million in worldwide sales so if this chart is anything to go by U3 will open well over a million worldwide sales.

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary - Xbox 360 - 342,177

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception - PS3 - 284,482

Halo Anniversary is going to be the highest selling HD remaster to date.

trunkswd2592d ago

I agree. I expect it to have similar sales to Halo 3: ODST.

gamingdroid2592d ago

I just noticed Halo: CE Anniversary sits above Uncharted 3 on pre-orders.

Hicken2592d ago

Your stealth trolling needs work. Your first two comments are sly digs at Uncharted, and both are pretty poor.

The first Halo game is a legend. It's honestly no surprise that it would have more reserves than UC3.

Your other comment regarding Uncharted 2 was just ignorant, given that UC3 still isn't even out yet, and that pre-orders don't equal sales.

Were there 3 million pre-orders for Gears 3? I can't remember, but I don't think there were. And yet, that's what Gears sold in the first week. There are still about a hundred people who pre-ordered Gears and yet didn't pick it up yet at my store, alone.

Godmars2902592d ago

Despite all the hype around N4G, the GT rivalry, its still only a racing game. Anyone who thinks its numbers are going to be anywhere near something like Halo or Gears is going to be mistaken.

gamingdroid2592d ago (Edited 2592d ago )

How does Forza go on to sell millions?

I agree, the pre-order numbers seem low albeit in a completely different genre that isn't as popular.

edit: turns out Forza 4 is on track with Forza 3 pre-orders:

trunkswd2592d ago

Forza has really good legs, while games like CoD or Gears are more front loaded.

Tarantino_Life2592d ago

We get man. Microsoft is perfect. Even if the preorder numbers for some of their exclusives are low it will sell very well. If Uncharted 3 preorder numbers are low it will not sell very well.Microsoft is God's gift to Mankind and gaming would not exist if it were not for Microsof'ts blessing. You will spin everything Microsoft related into something positive while Sony related as negative. Gamingdroid you are the biggest idiot in these forums.What next? How will you spin the numbers when they have a lesser opening then GT5. I am curious go on!!

elshadi2592d ago

i want to give
bubble for funny
and bubble for well said
but i can only give you one
sooo "WELL SAID"

humbleopinion2592d ago

Forza 4 is not only on track with Forza 3, but also not far behind Gran Turismo 5 which was like 250K a week before launch - and this was after quite a few delays.

Racing games in general (just like football) have the biggest user base in Europe: GT5 for example is the best selling racing game this gen, and it sold over 4M in europe out of a total of 6.5M. It's the second best selling PS3 game, beating games like MW2, GTA IV, Fifa 11 and AC, as well as any other PS3 exclusive. Forza 3 sold almost half of the units in Europe and PGR4 sold about 75% of the total units over ther - and that is despite the fact that the console itself is very US centered. The same goes for the NFS franchise which seem to sell tons of units in Europe.

Wow! BF3 gaining some momentum... on the 360, good to know COD may have some competition this holiday

AngelicIceDiamond2592d ago

Lol looks like Gears took Forzas thunder away maybe Xboxers ( like myself) can't handle multiple pre-order exclusives? I dunno I'm just stating an "out there opinion."

I probably will get disagrees with this comment most likely.

gamingdroid2592d ago (Edited 2592d ago )

Except your opinion is wrong. Forza 4 is performing on par with Forza 3:

Forza Motorsport 4 19,094 182,446 1 week to release
Forza Motorsport 3 18,116 165,484 2 weeks to release

Based on facts from the same source, NOT on opinion.

AngelicIceDiamond2592d ago

That is good news Thanks, I had a feeling I was wrong.

Ryo-Hazuki2592d ago (Edited 2592d ago )

Yeah but wasn't Forza 3 bundled with the xbox during christmas holidays? PPl count those units as sold. I don't think Forza 4 wont match Forza 3 because of that reason

2592d ago
Jobesy2592d ago

As well as Forza 3 being bundled, there also weren't as many compelling titles to play on the 360 at that time as there are this year.

qwertyz2592d ago

forza 4 will probably end up selling as much as forza 3 which is around 4.5 million units

dirtrider2592d ago

lol at ryo- well then i guess a lot of sony games "haven't sold well neither since some were bundled"

see jack ass- quit putting your foot in your mouth.

gamingdroid2592d ago (Edited 2592d ago )

With the bigger user base I expected Forza 4 to have larger pre-order numbers.

It is likely to be on par with Forza 3 sales, but that is under performing.

Maybe sales will pick up, I dunno.

I believe Icysub was referring to certain commenters who claim that the reason "X" doesn't sell is because there is just so many other "X's" to chose from.

Which is an absolute ridiculous claim that has now shred of evidence or truth.
