Oh, not to mention MK did it without the help from Japan. SFIV and Tekken 6 both had Japans help and MK still came out on top. MK was always pretty popular...the movie even proved that compared to SF's.
StreaK (on 08 November 2013)
Nahh, do the math guys. MK is the best-selling fighting franchise this gen across all platforms. PS3+360+PSV= well over 4 million. More than all of Tekken 6 combined and rightfully so. Last good Tekken was 5. Shame, too, considering TTT2 has such a killer soundtrack and visuals.

OH COOOOLLL the best selling fighting game on ps3 average sales. 😀
Heavenly_King (on 23 June 2012)
I will wait for Tekken 7 and Tekken X Street Fighter, to see if the series is back on track. I could not care less for Tekken Tag 2.
Heavenly_King (on 23 June 2012)
Indeed, it is the worst in the series. But it may reach 3M which is not a bad thing considering the crapfest and this console generation.

Also this game is looking to be the best selling fighting this generation and that is a complete BLASPHEMY!!!
AndrewWK (on 23 June 2012)
This is a piece of shit game. Worst in the series by far

Playstation version sales are crap (considering that the fanbase is on Playstation, it is selling bad). If the game was so good , it would have sold on PS3 ALONE 3.5M. It is happening the same stuff like with FFXIII.
The_Joker_Product (on 17 December 2011)
Except it isnt, the games sold 3.5 million copies, more than Tekken 1 and 4 and not far off Tekken 5's PS2 sales.
Heavenly_King (on 09 December 2011)
the whole game sucks, that is why it is the worst selling game in the series.
oniyide (on 24 November 2011)
its not so much that the game sucks, but feature wise its worse than 5. Scenario mode just brings the whole thing down
cars298 (on 10 November 2011)
the game is awesome and the moves too.
Mordred11 (on 21 October 2011)
2M!
Rockyb (on 08 August 2011)
offline will always be better but i hope they invent some way to play with 0 lag someday, like you are playing someone with a 2nd controller.
Mad55 (on 02 August 2011)
cause they are crazy. also almost to 2 million on ps3 alone whoo!
enditall727 (on 11 July 2011)
why do you guys think that this game sucks compared to 5?
Heavenly_King (on 14 May 2011)
this game sucks! Tekken 5 is the best
--OkeyDokey-- (on 05 May 2011)
The core fighting is the best ever, in any game, as far as I'm concerned. But they made so many poor design choices in the rest of the game that let it down.
Biddles (on 22 December 2010)
This tanked in japan
pslee (on 04 December 2010)
just bought this game on amazon for $10
Sensei (on 20 November 2010)
I love this game.
The_God_of_War (on 20 May 2010)
Ah, there we go.
The_God_of_War (on 19 May 2010)
Will this ever go above 1.54 million? It's just stuck there.
Heavenly_King (on 03 May 2010)
@jin_ivasawa:
The same here.......sadly:(

Tekken 5 was a beast!!
naruball (on 23 April 2010)
I expected better sales for such a great game. I bought it a couple of days ago and I'm loving it. I do prefer Tekken 3 though. There was something magical about it. I couldn't stop about thinking when I was gonna play it again, when I was at school or anywhere else. I hope the low sales do not hurt the franchise. I still think that had it been a ps3 exclusive it would have been a much greater hit.
jin_ivasawa (on 23 April 2010)
This is HANDS DOWN The Worst Tekken game EVER .
Mr Puggsly (on 10 April 2010)
@ hunter_alien
Well it didn't bomb. The PS360 sales will be at par with the PS2 sales. Doesn't seem they spent much on advertising either.
hunter_alien (on 08 April 2010)
I dont get it why it bombed. The PS3 version will probably do 2 million, and the 360 version will do over 1 million. Plus half million LT at least from the PSP version. People have way to high expectations for fighting games this gen ;-)

Also, lets be honest, its not the best Tekken, hell, the only mainstream Tekken that is worse then this is 4 IMO...
Mr Puggsly (on 02 April 2010)
Were you guys expecting PS1 and PS2 numbers with a fraction of the userbase?

The combined sales of Tekken 6 is about 2.1 million. It took years for Tekken 4 and 5 to reach 3+ million.

Also, Tekken 4 and 5 went down to $20 rather quickly. Its not like the masses bought them at full price. You people have brains, use them!
huaxiong90 (on 02 April 2010)
Man this bombed so hard.
Solid_Snake4RD (on 17 March 2010)
bombed because of going multiplat
Dgc1808 (on 03 March 2010)
Ok sales for a game... very weak for tekken.
jin_ivasawa (on 21 February 2010)
This is the worse Tekken in the entire Franchise ... runners up Tekken 4 .
Mad55 (on 03 February 2010)
doesn't that mean the game is under tracked in japan Dark Odin.

xykes (on 01 February 2010)
During the holiday season (where most of these sales came from) the game was not selling for full price at numerous outlets. At Amazon.com it fluctuated all the way down to 20 bucks on some days. (it's 35 dollars at Amazon now.) I saw it for 40 at Best Buy during the holidays.

So, yeah, I'd say the low price had a lot to do with the sales.
Mad55 (on 01 February 2010)
Cowbitsdu86
at major retailers it is indeed full price the sales stay steady because that's what the franchise has always done.
Its fully priced at game stop,walmart,target etc. don't believe me go to there websites. tekken is a great series there sales reflect that.
PlaystaionGamer (on 22 January 2010)
so, still great sales! and it keeps going

Playstation and Tekken are in love
Cowboys4u86 (on 18 January 2010)
@ PlaystaionGamer

Around about the time it went half price despite only being out a couple months.
PlaystaionGamer (on 17 January 2010)
omg, these sales are huge! when did this happen lol
ShadowSoldier (on 14 January 2010)
Its doubled the 360 sales
PDF (on 08 January 2010)
im glad to see tekken do well as I love the franchise but i was personally disappointed with the game
Mad55 (on 04 January 2010)
wow who was doubting sales.
Aj_habfan (on 30 December 2009)
That didn't take too long
xykes (on 27 December 2009)
this game hasn't been full price for weeks. it's only 2 months old, and I've seen it hover down between 40 bucks to 20 bucks new. So, I don't know how informative these sales numbers are. 20 bucks for a newly release game? Of course it's gonna sell.
nen-suer (on 17 December 2009)
million seller next week
KeyStyle (on 13 December 2009)
Can reach 2 - 2.5 mil by the end of 2010) and only on PS3))) x360 version only 1.5...or something...
Boneitis (on 13 December 2009)
@ Heavenly_King
Well I'm a long time Tekken fan as well. I've been playing since the first hit the Arcade.

Frankly, I think this is the best Tekken so far. Definitely one of my favorite fighters this gen and I've played them all. You're entitled to your opinion, but some of us are perfectly happy with this release.
Carl2291 (on 13 December 2009)
Should be 1 Million seller next week :-)
Mad55 (on 12 December 2009)
Stop saying the 360 version wasnt worth it its selling fine and is of the same quality as the ps3 version. There making good money on both versions. look at borderlands selling better on the 360 but i bet they aren't considering the ps3 version a failure.
ps3_jrpg_gamer (on 12 December 2009)
AWESOME LEGS IN OTHERS
Heavenly_King (on 10 December 2009)
I am a Tekken fan, but I have to say that this is the worst Tekken so far. Tekken 5 was so AMAZING!!!! I thought back then: "Holy Damn, How good will Tekken6 will be next-gen". This game is so disappointing. I know it is a port of a 2 year old arcade game, but they could at least tweak the graphics a little, the game looks so bad. And that campaign mode is so damn horrible.....What the hell they were thinking when they decided to make that "Story mode". The gameplay is as always really good, but tekken is not only about good gameplay is about the whole package. If I just want a good fighting game I would play Virtua Fighter 5.

So far the fighting games this year rating for me is like this:
SFIV > BlazBlue >>>Tekken 6 > KOF XII.

Hopefully this game will serve namco's Tekken team to make a better Tekken sequel; because if not, I wont buy the game; and that would make me very sad because I have every Tekken game yet.
Dgc1808 (on 09 December 2009)
Good performance so far. Tekken5 had great legs and that's how it got to where it is now.

The gameplay in this is well refined and the best the series has ever seen and the animations are very well done. The character models still hold their slightly cartoonish/gamey appeal that the other tekkens have and doesn't go for the realistic look like certain other games do which i think is awesome.

My only complaint is that scenario mode just wasn't fun. Sucks that I had to do it to get my platinum. After the second patch which fixed that input delay online, this game plays like a dream.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 09 December 2009)
Agree with last two comments. The 360 version wasn't worth the effort.

This game was one of the reasons I bought a PS3 but it turned out to be too little, too late.
Burning Typhoon (on 08 December 2009)
It is actually a worse game because of the multi-platform. If people want to enjoy it, buy a PS3. The value of the game has gone down because of it.. This game should have been released back in Summer 2008...
MarshmallowMan (on 08 December 2009)
@atma998,
I think the point they're trying to make here is that the port to 360 really delayed the game. During that long delay, this game lost some of its appeal. Other fighters coming out like Street Fighter didn't help, either.
I agree that the PS3 version should have been released on time, to capture all that demand, followed by a port to other systems like PSP and 360. This is similar to what the 360 does with games like Bioshock and Ninja Gaiden.
atma998 (on 06 December 2009)
Damn there is too many fanboys here. What's wrong with releasing this game multiplatform? The game isnt worst because it was release on another console. Youu people should learn that the more people can enjoy the game the best it is for the franchise.
geddesmond2 (on 06 December 2009)
Namco Fucked up when they decided to release this multiplat. The delay they put on the game for the 360 port really hurt this game. I remember at the start of the PS3's life this game was one every PS3 owner wanted. Now look at what a multiplat release has done to the series. People are giving the middle finger to this game now and 360 owners don't even appreciate the game. I think Namco lost more customers on the PS3's side than what they gained on the 360s side.

Ah well. The games fucking awesome. PS3 owners, yous need to buy this game.
fabkazuya (on 06 December 2009)
1 million now with ps360.
Maybe not a big success but it's still decent.
ShadowSoldier (on 06 December 2009)
Namco really fucked up
TT Makaveli (on 04 December 2009)
@legendarysaiyanbroly: dont be so dramatic...maybe they really Re-launch the Tekken series with a Tekken 7 exclusive for PS3 or PS4 launch!
legendarysaiyanbroly (on 01 December 2009)
@ Makaveli:

2 late! Da damage's already been done to the franchise, and it's all Namco's fault. They should've released this game 2 fucking years ago!

Now that they have ported Tekken 6 to the weaker 360, the series will forever b "broken merchandise".
TT Makaveli (on 01 December 2009)
i hope it will sell 3:1 in favor of the Ps and maybe release Tekken 7 exclusive again!
fabkazuya (on 27 November 2009)
Next week, 1 million on ps360.
Maybe 1 million on ps3 in the beginning of the next year.
Burning Typhoon (on 19 November 2009)
I hope this game does as worse as possible on both systems so they learn what they're not allowed to do with Tekken..
nen-suer (on 19 November 2009)
Up in NA this week nice..
cmeese47 (on 19 November 2009)
Fighting games always sell better on PS3 than 360.
Train wreck (on 19 November 2009)
Sales went up in the US...hmmm
C_Hollomon (on 15 November 2009)
PS3 version will reach 1m but I don't think 360 version will.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 14 November 2009)
My first Tekken game that i own ever, i never did like 1,2 or 3 and after 3 i kinda didn't bother to check out 4 or 5, but with 6 im finally a fan. great game even if the battle system does feel dated.
krimoz911 (on 13 November 2009)
What did Namco expect?

This game is 2 years late.But I am going to buy after all.
masterb8tr (on 13 November 2009)
lol at this rate, demon souls will pass it in weekly sales in amrica next week:P And it released before tekken:)
ZorroX (on 13 November 2009)
If Tekken 6 was released a year ago as PS3 exclusive, i think Japan alone would cover all x360 sales.
Gearbox (on 12 November 2009)
18k? wow just wow...
SubiyaCryolite (on 12 November 2009)
They took too long to port it. I love tekken, but Street Fighter IV, Blaz Blue, Soul Calibur IV, VF & DOA stole its thunder. Namco kept people waiting for too long, its been out in japanese arcades for over 2 years now.
Mad55 (on 10 November 2009)
its okay tekken will have better legs than street fighter 4. look at tekken 5 it only sold around 300,000 first week and went on to sell 3 or 4 million.
Burning Typhoon (on 10 November 2009)
The game wasn't a good translation from the arcades. I like tekken, but, glad to see this did so badly, so namco will learn not to screw people over and expect a high turn-out because of the series' name.

It's worth having, and I would play it over SFIV any day, but, it didn't come close to metting my expectations.
jneul (on 09 November 2009)
I think all the leaks on this games quality has not helped it sales, what ever happened to tekken, it used to sell like hotcakes.
Cowboys4u86 (on 08 November 2009)
Street Fighter wasn't big on PS, very true. That's where Tekken was born though, so it's bad to see Street Fighter outselling it on the PS3 by a considerable margin.
TheConduit (on 08 November 2009)
Unlike Tekken Street fighter wasn't big on the PS consoles and therefore had more balanced sales between 360 and PS3.
Tekken also has broken online and stupid beat em up mode.
Cowboys4u86 (on 08 November 2009)
And just for a little more perspective.

Week 1 Worldwide sales.

(PS3) Tekken 6 - 313,633
(PS3) SF IV - 500,644
(360) Tekken 6 - 128,775
(360) SF IV - 439,027

Total combined sales in week 1.

Tekken 6 - 442,408
SF IV - 939,691

Tekken 6 overall sales weren't even as high as the PS3 version of SF IV in week 1. It's less than half of SF IV's overall week 1 sales. So yeah, I firmly believe it won't be the best selling fighter this gen.
Cowboys4u86 (on 08 November 2009)
@ Gearbox

Yeah, but Japanese sales isn't going to make a big impact when SFIV sold way more in it's first week in the west, where software sales numbers are always higher.

Tekken 6 week 1 in NA - 96k
SF IV week 1 in NA - 250k

That's just for PS3.
Gearbox (on 08 November 2009)
@Cowboys4u86 - hasnt this already beaten it in japan?
Cowboys4u86 (on 07 November 2009)
@ Boneitis

I doubt it will be the best selling fighter this gen, Street Fighter IV pretty much has that locked.
halil23 (on 07 November 2009)
@ Dark Odin, agreed!

Another reasons to boycott M$.

I doubt Bandai Namco will learn it mistakes!! *sigh*
Boneitis (on 06 November 2009)
@ Tbone
Fighters don't do as good as they used to in general. That's absolutely no reflection on the quality of this game.

For the record, the combined sales of Tekken 6 is 450K. That's a great start in my opinion and could be the best selling fighter this gen.
Tbone (on 06 November 2009)
@Dark odin
Exactly my thoughts, first week in Americe i predicted 150k but it did only 90k. I think 300k first week is good anyway since its clear Tekken isnīt as good as befre.
Dark Odin (on 06 November 2009)
it had 130k pre-orders in america. I donīt understand...

anyway, if this was still exclusive and got released a year ago, I think that this first week number would be doubled at least.
snyperdud (on 06 November 2009)
@ Chairman-Mao

Well compared to other Tekken's.

It's not very good...
Burning Typhoon (on 05 November 2009)
It's not so much when it released that screwed the game up, as what happened to it... It was ported, received a drop in graphics, and nerfed training options.
Chairman-Mao (on 05 November 2009)
lol what? Nothing spectacular. 300k for a fighting game is pretty great.
snyperdud (on 05 November 2009)
Solid debut.
Nothing spectacular though.
Dgc1808 (on 05 November 2009)
I was hoping for a bigger opening but Tekken6 should have some very good legs.
Burning Typhoon (on 19 October 2009)
Reserved...
Dark Odin (on 07 October 2009)
it was a day one buy... now, I donīt even know if Iīll buy this
Tbone (on 21 August 2009)
First day buy, it really sucks that it releases in middle of Uncharted 2 and Modern warfare 2.
Burning Typhoon (on 17 June 2009)
I was really aggravated out when I heard it was coming to 360 and at the same release date.

This game's original Japan release was December 2007, and we're still waiting...
Kyuu (on 28 April 2009)
@TT Makaveli
lol, I couldn't agree more :) Tekken wouldn't be even playable on 360's terrible D-pad ... but some ppl will get a 60+ bucks arcade stick along with the game, while button mashers wouldn't rly care lol.
saimcheeda (on 14 April 2009)
@TT Makaveli

Righto im really dissapointed too....
TT Makaveli (on 07 April 2009)
@kyuu: yes...but FF was first nintendo then sony...so its not soo hard...but Tekken...man people play tekken on that xbox controller...this is really just too hard...tekken was PS like Halo xbox was/is!namco sold out :(
boxydancer (on 25 February 2009)
@ Finnbar--- it will lol.
Finnbar (on 22 February 2009)
Better have the kangaroo!
Kyuu (on 24 January 2009)
Sad fact that this alongside FFXIII went multiplatform :( then again, I'm okay as long as they both get more fans!
play_ea (on 08 January 2009)
Tekken is amazing taking ages to come out though
TyePhoid_PAL (on 22 September 2008)
I would be buzzin if this arrived in December.
Dark Odin (on 14 September 2008)
two new characters:

Dgc1808 (on 05 September 2008)
Would be pretty awesome if I could get my hands on this game by the end of the year.
thelalaby (on 04 September 2008)
This will be an easy million-seller once it's out, let's hope it comes out soon because it's been out in the arcades for quite some time.
blazinhead89 (on 03 September 2008)
lol no Aj, They're in their fighting Stances :P
Aj_habfan (on 02 September 2008)
Are the people on the cover dancing?
blazinhead89 (on 02 September 2008)
The Reason I bought PS3, along with MGS4 and Final Fantasy 13 and Versus
Tbone (on 08 August 2008)
Will defenitly buy this has always liked Tekken.
Dark Odin (on 26 July 2008)
will be exclusive?

I think thar SCIV sales will tell namco...
TyePhoid_PAL (on 08 June 2008)
Looking forward to this bad boy.
Dark Odin (on 04 May 2008)
A must buy! games of tekken series are awesome! canīt wait for this.
40 characters for Arcade, maybe more on PS3!

Bob seems to be such a nice character! Hworang and Julia kick ass!!

some screenshots added.

Nahh, do the math guys. MK is the
best-selling fighting franchise this gen
across all platforms. PS3+360+PSV= well
over 4 million. More than all of Tekken
6 combined and rightfully so. Last good
Tekken was 5. Shame, too, considering
TTT2 has such a killer soundtrack and
visuals.

I will wait for Tekken 7 and Tekken X
Street Fighter, to see if the series is
back on track. I could not care less
for Tekken Tag 2.
Heavenly_King (on 23 June 2012)
Indeed, it is the worst in the series.
But it may reach 3M which is not a bad
thing considering the crapfest and this
console generation.

Also this game is
looking to be the best selling fighting
this generation and that is a complete
BLASPHEMY!!!
