Nice @ Gears, 1 mill!

Uncharted is slowly moving up. Beta for U3 starts tomorrow, and numbers will go up significantly over next 3-4 weeks, then steady increase until launch. If you have a PS3 you have no excuse not to take part. http://www.naughtydog.com/site/post/uncharted_3_multiplayer_beta_details/

50,000 for resi 3DS? lame, but nice to see Skyward sword, the my hottest game to buy this Q4.

congrats to EPIC. the GEAR heads rule


Kai Master (on 27 June 2011)

Thanks for adding MW3 vs BOps as I suggested the previous week, that's interesting. What is strange is that Halo : Reach had 2M pre-orders vs 1.8M for BOps but sold less at launch... I bet on MW3 as the biggest pre-ordered game ever on 360 and the biggest launch ever, even if GoW3 should perform very well.

No problem. Modern Warfare 3 without a doubt will have the biggest opening week in gaming history, while Gears 3 will have the second biggest opening this year.

Skyrim will be huge bitches

ijesseee - that was WW


xinstantnoodlez (on 28 June 2011)

Wow, twisted metal at 33,000 is not something I expected, some marketing might actually help it reach 250k by the time it launches


Etanclan4life (on 27 June 2011)

Gears at 1 million pre orders fastest game ever(: congrats you deserve much more than that reskinned game from 09. *cough modern warfare 3 cough*


Etanclan4life (on 30 June 2011)

@MakahaLife is short and you only live once so have fun while you can whats the point in living anyways?

Michelasso (on 28 June 2011)

Bleah... shooters. I preordered only one game and that is Dark Souls. Because it is very cheap (43 euro) and it comes with the game guide and bonus DVD. And obviously... because there is much more in life than running with a stupid gun!! :D


Michael-5 (on 28 June 2011)

What happened to that BayBlade game for DS?


jamesmarkus87 (on 28 June 2011)

It's pretty obvious that MW 3 for 360 will be the best selling game of 2011. The question is, what will be #2? GoW 3 or MW 3 for PS3?


yahoocom1984 (on 28 June 2011)

Skyrim will be in top 5 next week


Makaha (on 30 June 2011)

what's up with America and shooters and guns?? And I'm saying that as an American.... it's so retarded. no wonder we are getting out asses kicked in math and science globally. look at South Korea where shooters do NOT rule (Starcraft anyone??), one of the smartest people in the world--Samsung, LG, Hyundai, the world's best shipbuilders, and one of the top nations in math and science and Singapore too I think in Japan you can't even own a gun as a private citizen, and that's the way it should be. In 50 years, the United States will be at the bottom technology-wise, while Asia will rule.... so.....continue playing stupid shooters and your mind will turn to mush. I hate shooters....


snakenobi (on 28 June 2011)

Gears achievement is false though as it had an earlier release date which is why preorders are so high this far from release. vgc doesn't count lost pre-orders which wud have happened when the date was changed MW3 change since E3 has been massive
