gipsy_jack (on 06 December 2010)
congratulations! very good racing game. I like it. I'm waiting for the next motorstorm apocalypse now
drakesfortune (on 05 December 2010)
One Mil! I can't believe it took this long. This is my favorite racing game this gen. People really should check it out.
non-gravity (on 03 December 2010)
1,000,000!
axumblade (on 02 December 2010)
Averaging about 6k a week, it should take 3 weeks to hit a million tops.
Dark Odin (on 04 November 2010)
30 k to go!
Heavenly_King (on 19 May 2010)
80k left GO MOTORSTORM!!!
MarshmallowMan (on 06 May 2010)
Still one of the most beautiful games on the system.
Notorius.A.i.G (on 06 May 2010)
I hope it can scrap to 1 Mill
axumblade (on 22 April 2010)
Oh wow. I hope this game hits a million. So much improvement over the first one
non-gravity (on 21 April 2010)
it received a greatest hits release in the US. it might make a million at last.
imran_nxt (on 12 April 2010)
@palitococo, mayb its heavily discounted ..
palitococo (on 09 April 2010)
10K this week, im glad to see that, but why?
Skeeuk (on 03 March 2010)
very underated, has a crap boxart to boot.

good game though, wish for better single player, hopefully ms3 will deliver
Heavenly_King (on 26 February 2010)
Come on guys, buy this game.
This game should at least sell 1M!!!
VivaLaWiida (on 22 February 2010)
@Gearbox
Not really, look at Excitebots.
It sold decent, but it deserves at least 1.5+ million. Great game and very challenging!
Gearbox (on 21 February 2010)
what sucks is, the ps3 fan base is all about realistic racers. if this was on the wii, it would be like 5 milllion.
THATGUY (on 15 February 2010)
im playing this at the moment, ive borrowed it off my mate. And im not a racing game fan normally but im enjoying this game it derserves 1m + sales.
TheLordHimself (on 05 February 2010)
It's so sad... this game deserves such fantastic sales. =( I hope we're going to see another Motorstorm on PS3 at some point...
ssj12 (on 25 January 2010)
should have bundled this or marketed this better...
MarshmallowMan (on 23 January 2010)
Any chance this gets to 1M?
Dark Odin (on 20 January 2010)
good game... I wonder how much were the shipments... 1.5-2million??
geddesmond2 (on 11 January 2010)
So I finally picked up this game for 20 euros brand new. Fantastic game. The envirements look Amazing and the graphics are brilliant. I recommend it to anyone whos having thoughts about getting it
play_ea (on 10 January 2010)
such a great game how come it hasnt sold more??
Aj_habfan (on 30 December 2009)
We've been over this a million times, that was shipped, 1m copies were shipped. Retailers overstocked this game based off of the first game, the initial shipment still hasn't been sold off.
ps3-sales! (on 25 December 2009)
Probably at 2 million if it already sold 1 million now.
http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/motorstorm-pacific-rift-passes-one-million-sales
Vgchartz needs to track this game, it was a pretty big release.
MontanaHatchet (on 23 December 2009)
Vertigo, the first Motorstorm also sold a million copies easily without bundling. I think this game proves that people only bought the first game because it was one of the PS3's only good games at the time (which it was).
Vertigo-X (on 20 December 2009)
This game proves that the first one only sold due to bundles.
ChrisIsNotSexy (on 13 December 2009)
BLASPHEMY
Heavenly_King (on 10 December 2009)
COME ON!! AT LEAST SELL 1M!!!!
headshot91 (on 09 December 2009)
BOMB
Smileface (on 09 December 2009)
It made milion 9th december 08, http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/motorstorm-pacific-rift-passes-one-million-sales
VGChartz data completly failed!!!
drakesfortune (on 27 November 2009)
Glad to see this hit 800k. I hope it at least does a million. I want more Motorstorm, this is my favorite racing game this gen by far.
axumblade (on 19 November 2009)
still inching its way up in sales. I hope it continues though...
non-gravity (on 19 November 2009)
We can only hope for it to be undertracked, but I fear it's not.

How retailers or Sony coped with such an overestimated first shipment remains a mistery.
Aj_habfan (on 15 November 2009)
It SHIPPED 1M last year. It hasn't come close to selling off that shipment, no way retailers would order more.
PlaystaionGamer (on 07 November 2009)
in December 2008 it sold 1 million (SOLD) so a year ago it was at a million, since then it went budget, i think its close to 1.5 - 2mil by now
PLEASE UPDATE VGchartz
headshot91 (on 04 November 2009)
abysmal sales
axumblade (on 31 October 2009)
I'm impressed that this title keeps selling. It initially looked like it would end it's life at 750k.
ArkZero (on 30 October 2009)
This one has sold over a million http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/motorstorm-pacific-rift-passes-one-million-sales
Solid_Snake4RD (on 27 October 2009)
this is seriously undertracked.VGC admins god damit,update it
RafaelOrix (on 19 October 2009)
I bought it a couple of weeks ago and I'm loving this game! It's so much fun racing with the buggy :P
joshin69 (on 14 October 2009)
not a great game compared to the first
Bagaren85 (on 05 October 2009)
No bundles, well thats explain it all.
FootballFan (on 04 October 2009)
Probably won't get a million unless it recieves the adjustments that people have been going on about...
Deviation59 (on 02 October 2009)
This game deserves to have done so much better than it has.
FootballFan (on 27 September 2009)
Strong sales in Japan!
NSS7 (on 18 September 2009)
This game sell well despite lack hype. 1st game sold well because of heavy bundled and lack of great PS3 exclusive. Legs are amazing
headshot91 (on 07 September 2009)
nen-seur this didnt sell well....
Hidalgo (on 04 September 2009)
@Avarice28

Doubleposting. Sometimes it just happens.


I loved the 1st MotorStorm but this one... I feel like they betrayed the original spirit from the first.
nen-suer (on 03 September 2009)
Glad this sold well
Avarice28 (on 03 September 2009)
are you a parrot?

@Simulacrum
Simulacrum (on 30 August 2009)
Its been bundled since the day it was released.
Very very very sad sales compared to first one.
XxXProphecyXxX (on 17 August 2009)
hope this gets a sales boost this holidays...but then again if GT5 releases evry 1 is gonna go for that =.=
metalgearmatt (on 16 August 2009)
amazing legs
Squall_Leonhart (on 13 August 2009)
I think i will have to pick this game up... I have the 1st one but, like a lot of people, never had the urge to get the 2nd! It was lost in the holidays...
sagarsdadude (on 13 August 2009)
they should bundle this to show people what a good game this is
TyePhoid_PAL (on 11 August 2009)
Very good. Bargain.
Rainbird (on 09 August 2009)
Adjusted up! Yes :-D
drinkvault (on 07 August 2009)
I like Midnight Club: Los Angeles more for an arcade racer.
FootballFan (on 05 August 2009)
This game is great fun! Defo reccomend it. Online is hard tho :/
TyePhoid_PAL (on 03 August 2009)
Saw this for 15 pounds gona pick it up soon.
hunter_alien (on 25 July 2009)
Deffinatly undertracked... it barely moved anything in months, the game shipped way to much before christams for alkl copies to sit on shelves, and the DLC got soem fairly good advertisement too...
Heavenly_King (on 19 July 2009)
what this game needs is BUNDLES
CrazyHorse (on 18 July 2009)
Best splitscreen multiplayer game I've played since TimeSplitters.
FootballFan (on 17 July 2009)
its been on 0.66m
for about a month
mario64 (on 13 July 2009)
I agree it's a shame this superb game sold even less than 1 million... ;(

The recent DLC (speed pack) is great, and the game is tons of funs. Something got wrong in marketing and with the demo released...
mario64 (on 13 July 2009)
@FootballFan : That's wrong, there are tons of people online, at least here in Europe. You can't play unranked races though, nobody cares about them apparently.
solidpumar (on 12 July 2009)
The game is amazing!
Tbone (on 05 July 2009)
Can't believe it hasnt hit 1 million yet.
Aj_habfan (on 02 July 2009)
You needed proof to know that it was bundled? And the first one had already outsold this amount before it was bundled, and it sold more than this after the bundle was over.
yo_john117 (on 23 June 2009)
Proof that the first one was bundled alot.
FootballFan (on 20 June 2009)
Also there is never anyone online. Theres no chance of me getting the platenum. Sucks really. It was good online just after christmas but now it is officially dead.
FootballFan (on 20 June 2009)
Wont hit 1 million
outlawauron (on 19 June 2009)
Guys, those are shipment numbers. Not actual sellthrough data. And not being dumb hunter.alien. It gets updated every week.
locos85 (on 19 June 2009)
So why isn't this being updated. I know it has sold over a million now. Game is alot of fun
Munkeh111 (on 15 June 2009)
Shame that the legs really have not shown up
iWarMachine (on 07 June 2009)
unbelievable... http://translate.google.com.ar/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fmx.playstation.com%2FNoticias_y_Eventos%2Fmotorstorm_pacific_drift_es_un_exito%2F&sl=es&tl=en&hl=es&ie=UTF-8


this game sold 1 million units first month...
hunter_alien (on 01 June 2009)
Those are info updates, not number updates... tough I have a feeling that it might be undertracked, last time we heard about it was before christmas and only then it shipped one million... I doubt that they managed to sell it all ;)
eddiedz (on 27 May 2009)
Did anyone not think to look at the sales history... last time this page was updated with sales #'s was in January 2009, 5 months ago. As of now the game is well over the 1 million mark. Even when you do a search for "motorstorm" on the results page you'll see "Last updated Jan 18 2009" for Pacific Rift.

Also according to sony and Evo, by december 2008 this game hit the 1 million mark globaly

FootballFan (on 27 May 2009)
This game is great. Shame theres no one for me to race with online.
Rainbird (on 26 May 2009)
This game deserves more sales, it's an awesome racer! :-(
zakrocz (on 24 May 2009)
650k aint too bad for a fairly hardcore racer. Great in-game music :D
legendarysaiyanbroly (on 22 May 2009)
TIME 2 BUNDLE IN AMERICA, SONY!!!!!!!!!!!
Mad Mike (on 14 May 2009)
Of course it is great. But for some is too difficult(like some of my friends) and therefore the sale is so low.

Next time Evolution Studio,let the people choose the difficulty level and your sales increase
Heavenly_King (on 11 May 2009)
Hopefully the game will reach 1M

BUY THIS GAME DAMNIT!!!!
dddddddddd123 (on 09 May 2009)
deserves more sales
-Z- (on 02 May 2009)
One of the most fun games I have for the PS3. Friends who have no idea about gaming love this game!
pslee (on 02 May 2009)
amazing game with really good graphics. I am addicted to this game now.
snyperdud (on 24 April 2009)
Pure shame.

Deserves to sell more than the original.
DreadRaptor85 (on 19 April 2009)
You can't choose the difficulty setting in the campaign mode which is gay.
mog (on 19 April 2009)
This game is great, but sadly difficult to get an online game in AUS region :( Maybe the original is still popular.

Do you think if I own and enjoy this it is worthwhile to go back and buy the original? Or is it a step backwards?

I know Sony execs are often full of it, but I thought sales were better...

DiplomaticImmunity (on 19 April 2009)
first week sales 67k, not it's 630k,
excellent
yusuke93_ita (on 18 April 2009)
mad fun
PullusPardus (on 17 April 2009)
Really great game one of the best arcadey off road driving game since Smuggler's Run
Heavenly_King (on 15 April 2009)
Hopefully the game will reach 1M

BUY THIS GAME DAMNIT!!!!
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 15 April 2009)
I can't believe this game did so (relatively) bad. I mean, it probably made money and all, but comparing it to it's prequel really shows a world of difference.

Yeah, I know the first Motorstorm was a launch title, but still... Ouch.
drakesfortune (on 15 April 2009)
I just started playing this game again. It's the best racer this gen, without question. A game like MarioKart, which we've all played to death for over a decade sells five billion copies, and this game, which is better in every way, is ignored. It's a shame.
non-gravity (on 14 April 2009)
I've reviewed this game, please rate my review.
headshot91 (on 13 April 2009)
very poor sales this week not even in top 100!
st_muscat0 (on 09 April 2009)
och, those American sales are terrible, how adjustment down. Guess it will get a million still, but it will take a while.
sepisfu (on 07 April 2009)
this game deserve a million
makingmusic476 (on 05 April 2009)
@Barozi: Huh? I just did a search via google, and found no announcement of this.
NanakiXI (on 23 March 2009)
@Barozi

Didn't know that :P
Barozi (on 22 March 2009)
@NanakiXI
It is officially bundled in Europe since the release.

@MM
DiRT sold a million on the 360 a long time ago. The Others numbers are outdated.
makingmusic476 (on 19 March 2009)
Sales are slowly falling. Now it won't break a million until July.

And sales of this game are fine. Off-road racers are generally niche. This will soon pass up the 360 version of DiRT, making it the best selling off-road racer this gen after the original MotorStorm.
NanakiXI (on 16 March 2009)
@headshot91

Maybe piss poor judgment on your part.
============
Great sales for a game of its genre and considering it isn't bundled or at least heavily its doing a good job on it's own.
headshot91 (on 13 March 2009)
man pretty poor sales
JEstevens (on 12 March 2009)
this game should sell a milion
axumblade (on 12 March 2009)
Slowly getting to the million mark. :)
non-gravity (on 06 March 2009)
I got a Platinum trophy for this game. My only one. This game is great, especially when you're playing with 3 of your friends splitscreen.
imran_nxt (on 06 March 2009)
'glad someone updated the japan sales.. :)
imran_nxt (on 03 March 2009)
japan sales : http://www.vgchartz.com/games/game.php?id=12266®ion=All
Trent (on 23 February 2009)
It has to of sold 1 million by now
cheese_man (on 23 February 2009)
I beleive this is undertracked. Sony said it sold its 1 million'th copy in december.
oliminator1994 (on 22 February 2009)
If theres anyone like me struggling to get the win 3 races in a row online, add me as a friend and ill try to get 10 others and we will simply take turns.

Tell me your interessted in doing it when you add me as a friend.

PSN = oliminator1994
Criminal916 (on 21 February 2009)
Will get this game sometime.
But ver sad sales,tho 760 000 is not bad,but we hoped much more.
terislb (on 21 February 2009)
ah this one is so much better than the first... more people should buy it

maybe they were all so disappointed by the first that they dont give this one a chance... maybe the new demo will change that
NicholasCage (on 19 February 2009)
There's gotta be at least 50k sales in Japan that's not added lol
Munkeh111 (on 18 February 2009)
I meant the legs are not what we were hoping for... People talk about Uncharted legs, but this is now below Uncharted in the charts
Signalstar (on 08 February 2009)
grr adjusted down
Munkeh111 (on 08 February 2009)
Great game, but the legs are what we were hoping for
Xen (on 01 February 2009)
Sweet legs on this one.
Dodes (on 29 January 2009)
con't believe it did only 0.75m so far!!

this game = BIG FUN
SpartanFX (on 28 January 2009)
@skeeuk

I know man

this game is awesome
makingmusic476 (on 28 January 2009)
If sales continue at this pace, it should break a million by May. By that point it will have passed up the 360 version of Dirt, making it the second best-selling offroad racer this gen, behind only its predecessor.

It's doing rather well, all things considered. The first just had special circumstances that allowed it to reach abnormally high sales. It was the second decent game on the system, it was the first game to truly show off the ps3's graphics, and it enjoyed extensive bundling.

The offroad racing genre in general is rather niche.
Rainbird (on 27 January 2009)
I don't understand why this isn't tracked in Japan? Sure, we track Motorstorm 2 in Japan, which is currently at 14k according to the weekly software numbers, but pressing the link to the game gives you a "game does not exist" message.
Simulacrum (on 26 January 2009)
Very sad sales...Maybe 1 million lifetime without bundles.
Skeeuk (on 25 January 2009)
how in the hell did on many sites pure get higher rating that ms2. its simply not comparable on any front.
Skeeuk (on 25 January 2009)
@darth, check the grafix on the fire levels truly amazing. a well top game i love the pause and foto mode.

great music also.
Damstr8 (on 25 January 2009)
Legs
darthdevidem01 (on 24 January 2009)
got it today

INDEED AMAZING

the demo was CRAP....the game's AWESOME!
mooli (on 23 January 2009)
That's correct - the game is actually called Motorstorm 2 in Japan.
Kamahl (on 20 January 2009)
this game is listed as motorstorm 2 in the japan charts, someone please fix that
bordello (on 18 January 2009)
Got this game for christmas, it has great graphics, great gameplay, it's a bucket of fun and it has really good online. Awesome racer, glad I got it.
Squall_Leonhart (on 18 January 2009)
This game is not the flop that a lot of people said it was!

I think i might have to pick this game up, but when it is a bit cheaper as i need to control my game spending as i have like 5 games yet to be played lol.
Heavenly_King (on 18 January 2009)
THIS GAME IS AMAZING!!!!

GO MOTORSTORM!!!
GO PS3!!!
GO SONY!!!
Skeeuk (on 18 January 2009)
this is a great game indeed, it has superb grafix and is fun to play, it will carry on over 1 million very soon, and i predict it will reach over 1.5million without bundles which is very good.

total lifetime taking bundles and platinum sales it should be about 3 million.

its a great game with good features, i love the screen grab feature
01casey (on 16 January 2009)
Well, it seems after a poor start as if Motorstorm has survived the busy Christmas period after all.

Should hit around 1 million.
play_ea (on 16 January 2009)
Japan???
Rainbird (on 16 January 2009)
Why isn't there any data from Japan?
makingmusic476 (on 13 January 2009)
This game will probably sell ~1.5 million on its own (higher than any other offroad racer this gen, barring it's predecessor), and it'll probably break 2 million with bundles.
NicholasCage (on 13 January 2009)
Nice legs, no stats from Japan also.

50k sales for 4 weeks in others? Not bad.
ssj12 (on 12 January 2009)
after 1 million this will be bundled and will hit the original's numbers.
darthdevidem01 (on 11 January 2009)
yay @ legs

ordered this frm amazon yesterday!
luisgvm (on 11 January 2009)
is this game bundled?
oliminator1994 (on 10 January 2009)
i got this for xmas for 19.99
Globox (on 08 January 2009)
I will buy it when it get around 30 bucks.
XxXProphecyXxX (on 07 January 2009)
will pass 1 million 4 sure.
radha (on 07 January 2009)
i love this game, the online is the best part
brazylianwisnia (on 07 January 2009)
The game is crushing MotorStorm 1 sales.Motorstorm 1 had 650k sold after 20 weeks.Motorstorm 2 reched it after 9 weeks.
Munkeh111 (on 06 January 2009)
The legs should keep up for a while, it is a very good game
makingmusic476 (on 05 January 2009)
This game isn't selling bad at all. People just had unrealistic expectations after the first. It's an offroad racer. That genre is pretty niche.

So far, it's tracking much higher than both the ps3 and 360 versions of Pure, and the ps3/360 versions of Dirt.
play_ea (on 05 January 2009)
lets see how it does after christmas such a good game though still addicted from launch!
tk1797 (on 04 January 2009)
They sould bundle this one like the other one
playnext3 (on 01 January 2009)
gona make it for 1 million,freat legs
Sephiroth357 (on 31 December 2008)
Sold mines.
Damstr8 (on 30 December 2008)
fun game,i absolutely love it.
PDF (on 26 December 2008)
Remember its the holidays people. Lets hope its legs can continue strong after christmas
Xen (on 26 December 2008)
And people were worried about it. Legging its way into millions it is!
oliminator1994 (on 26 December 2008)
This game is mint, trophies are rock hard though.
theraweness (on 25 December 2008)
#1 racing game ever
SpartanFX (on 23 December 2008)
fun as hell ,,,buy it
Jo21 (on 23 December 2008)
it was probably ignored due other games releases, but the sales are increasing in europe.

it looks like it will be a million seller easily.
Dodes (on 23 December 2008)
it's over 1m !
why PS3's games are subtracted



Theo (on 22 December 2008)
Nice legs : ) ..... ?
Gearbox (on 21 December 2008)
definalty worth 60 bucks its beautiful
Kenology (on 21 December 2008)
Sony said this sold a million, right? I don't think they're being truthful.
DMeisterJ (on 21 December 2008)
I almost bought this on Amazon for forty bucks, but thirty sounds much better.
Barozi (on 21 December 2008)
@ Aj_habfan
It is in Germany. There is even an official TV spot from Sony
playnext3 (on 21 December 2008)
yeah amazing legs
cool48 (on 20 December 2008)
Awesome legs!
Marty8370 (on 20 December 2008)
Bought from Shopto.net for only 19.99
makingmusic476 (on 20 December 2008)
It has decent legs.

I swear this game wasn't hyped at ALL before launch (especially compared to LBP, etc.), and outside of those stupid commercials, probably nobody outside of hardcore guys like us even knew it was coming out. It's living off of word of mouth. Let's see how long this lasts.
Dallinor (on 19 December 2008)
This game isn't bundled anywhere here. Just got some decent legs.
Damstr8 (on 19 December 2008)
400k not bad,its getting there.
metalgearmatt (on 19 December 2008)
it has some great legs...
Aj_habfan (on 19 December 2008)
The game isn't bundled officially anywhere, and bundles are counter here.
Dodes (on 19 December 2008)
guess the reason for unexpected sales is the bondle copys which are not added here
Skiman (on 17 December 2008)
I'm gonna pick this game up after X-mas :p
Agamemnon862 (on 17 December 2008)
Undertracked?
SpartanFX (on 17 December 2008)
awesome game ;)
axumblade (on 15 December 2008)
Wow. This game does have legs? I'm glad it's starting to pick up a little for this game. ^_^
Squall_Leonhart (on 15 December 2008)
The legs on this game continue to impress. I guess it just came out during a bad time, i mean i never knew it was out until i seen it while buying another game lol
Cthulhu (on 15 December 2008)
its easily double that in sales

more like 800k or more .... just come and take a look what is going on in the servers..

This game rocks i cant stop playing
hunter_alien (on 15 December 2008)
600-800k by years end IMO... and with good legs and bundling it could eventually reach Motorstorm in sales... still IMO worst case we will see 2 million sales LT :D

@Damstr8 probly 400k... but who know might sell higher than we expect.
Damstr8 (on 14 December 2008)
will be up over 400k next week...possibly .45?
JiaJia (on 14 December 2008)
This game will be all be about legs, indicative of the original motorstorm. It will just sell a constant amount week after week.
metalgearmatt (on 13 December 2008)
this has already sold over 1 million.
Damstr8 (on 13 December 2008)
adjusted up a tad in NA.i think.
Munkeh111 (on 13 December 2008)
Its legs aren't holding in the US
--OkeyDokey-- (on 13 December 2008)
Is Crazzyman a fakeboy?
Xen (on 12 December 2008)
Legs are strong with you, Motorstorm.
CrazzyMan (on 12 December 2008)
This game easy will pass 2 mln. sales by the end of this year. =)
BECAUSE this game is a GREAT AA game.

It will sell 3-5 mln. LTD.
PS3 FTW!
XxXProphecyXxX (on 11 December 2008)
I tought this sold over a million alrdy??
outlawauron (on 11 December 2008)
@ L1L

You don't work in retail then, do you?
Tuanniez (on 11 December 2008)
The game probably isn't undertracked, but that doesnt matter. Just like the first game. This one will have legs, so 1mil + LTD is easy =D
Gearbox (on 11 December 2008)
ahahaha really? lolz
docman78 (on 11 December 2008)
@Gearbox & everyone else

The game is not undertracked, November NPDs have this game @ less than 100,000 units in North America. That was just Sony spin, he was talking about Motorstorm 1 selling over a million but was vague enough that people assumed he was talking about this game. All the ps3 fanboys just ran with the story.
Gearbox (on 10 December 2008)
@cool48

this game is actually just above 1 million.
cool48 (on 10 December 2008)
Don't know if it's undertracked but it sure has some nice legs.
Damstr8 (on 10 December 2008)
my guess is its under tracked,to what extent,im not sure.
MikeB (on 10 December 2008)
Awesome game, if you liked the original you'll probably love this one. :-)
oliminator1994 (on 10 December 2008)
1 Million get in there. Add it to the evergrowning million collection!
PJ4Y (on 10 December 2008)
this is completely undertracked!!
It has already a million sold.
http://www.ps3fanboy.com/2008/12/09/motorstorm-pacific-rift-sells-a-million-units-worldwide/
L1L_D420 (on 10 December 2008)
i agree no way PS3s exlusive will have 750K on the shelves totally UNDERTRAcKED!!!!!!
L1L_D420 (on 10 December 2008)
i agree no way PS3s exlusive will have 750K on the shelves totally UNDERTRAcKED!!!!!!
freemanluke08 (on 10 December 2008)
even though it's sold to retailers there isnt going to 750k copies on shelves, this game is under tracked by atleast 350k
FaRmLaNd (on 09 December 2008)
Shipped to retailers guys, its not just vgchartz thats showing it didn't sell 1 million copies its all the major trackers.
Gabriel84 (on 09 December 2008)
this can't be undertracked cos it didn't make any impact on the charts. sony lose big money on this one.
Gearbox (on 09 December 2008)
"Some games have a rough ride. It's not easy being exclusive to a game console with a smaller install base than their competitors. It's even harder being released during those crazy Q4 months, when you're up against massive, highly anticipated titles. Thankfully, MotorStorm Pacific Rift has done well, despite these obstacles, already selling over one million units worldwide."

www.ps3fanboy.com


either they all came last week or uve massivly undertracked this game
pnmen (on 09 December 2008)
VG doesn't update these numbers. Just look at MGS4.
VG is still 1 million under konami's official numbers...
Sephiroth357 (on 09 December 2008)
undertracked!
ethomaz (on 09 December 2008)
According to the Worldwide Studios, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift passes one million sales. Update it.
Squall_Leonhart (on 09 December 2008)
Here's hoping that this game makes some good sales and at least becomes a million seller!
PSPIMP3000 (on 09 December 2008)
http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/motorstorm-pacific-rift-passes-one-million-sales

the link claims that it passed one million "sales" but i'm guessing its shipped not sold.on the other hand are there 750k copies on shelves right now??????? i think this may be a little under tracked.. atleast it should be 300 - 350 k
Kamahl (on 08 December 2008)
at this rate it will sell over 500k by the end of the year
Damstr8 (on 07 December 2008)
yeah,im getting this for Christmas,and so are a couple of my Buddies.
woj (on 07 December 2008)
I wonder how this will do this Christmas season and if it's legs can take this game to 1mil+ ww sales
321tttrini4everz (on 07 December 2008)
great great ! where are the stupid fanboys that said the game is a flop ??????
they are scared to post now huh ?

MS2 keep up the steady sales !
Gamer4eva (on 06 December 2008)
Like i said, this game will have legs.
iron_megalith (on 06 December 2008)
wow.. 4 straight weeks of constant sales.
malekelnasr000000001 (on 05 December 2008)
this game is flop compared to the first.
MozBlue (on 05 December 2008)
I think the wealth of games this year have done this a disservise.
The game is everything it was promised to be lets hope it keeps ticking over to reach the numbers it deserves
Kamahl (on 04 December 2008)
japanese numbers?
metalgearmatt (on 04 December 2008)
how could this be selling less than naruto ultimate ninja?
SpartanFX (on 04 December 2008)
great legs for an awesome game.
darthdevidem01 (on 03 December 2008)
these legs are pretty damn good!
Aj_habfan (on 03 December 2008)
It's not increasing enough though, it will crash once the holidays are over. It better make the best of these next 4 weeks I guess.
Gearbox (on 30 November 2008)
le le le legggss
GenuineClamBaker (on 29 November 2008)
These figures aren't that great but Im sure they'll stay steady. This game is definetly going to be a million seller.
Cthulhu (on 28 November 2008)
Got it! superb..nuff said
Aj_habfan (on 28 November 2008)
Minor adjustments UP in America.
toastboy44562 (on 25 November 2008)
good legs
Egghead (on 25 November 2008)
This will sell well for a long time, and offcourse will be bundled too
segajon (on 25 November 2008)
Will still be a million seller despite slow start. Early legs are looking good especially in others.
Xen (on 25 November 2008)
A start of good legs... 33k each week inothers would be fantastic.
Stats87 (on 25 November 2008)
EU keeps steady, who knows, maybe this game could end up with respectable sales....probably not.
Heavenly_King (on 25 November 2008)
WHY ALL PS3 EXCLUSIVES ARE SELLING SO LOW. WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!!!!! COME ONE GUYS BUY THIS GAME!!!! AND ALSO RESISTANCE 2 AND LBP!!!!!
Damstr8 (on 24 November 2008)
im getting it tomorrow, it really is a great game,sales will be fine,million seller for sure.
Dgc1808 (on 23 November 2008)
I'm dissappointed by these sales figures. I hope it has legs, it seems like a great game. I mite pick this up next year if I feel like getting a good racer and I hear nothing on GT5 full release.
Tremble (on 21 November 2008)
It's shame that it doesn't sell better, this game is really good! Buy it people, buy it!
Simulacrum (on 21 November 2008)
Yep,it flopped no matter what you say.
Barozi (on 20 November 2008)
This game is bundled with every PS3 here in Germany.
Just to let you know
Xen (on 20 November 2008)
It seems that we have a game of legs on our hands...
outlawauron (on 20 November 2008)
Great second week in Others. It will need major legs!
Stats87 (on 19 November 2008)
good 2nd week in others (compared to the 1st week that is)
Kamahl (on 19 November 2008)
the game is awesome, more and better maps, 4x split screen and online works better... great game
--OkeyDokey-- (on 18 November 2008)
It's actually pretty good...
FPSrules (on 17 November 2008)
this game is hott, i love how they made the enviornment more diverse. this game is one of the funnest racing games i ever brought. worth it if u looking for a racing game
Statix (on 17 November 2008)
Maybe sales for this (and LBP) would've been a bit better in US if it actually supported upscaled 1080i output. Instead, Sony screwed many people with slightly older-generation HDTVs once again by releasing 1st-party games that don't work with many TVs.
Dodes (on 17 November 2008)
I got it 5 days ago
it has a lot of fun and challenges
big jump of M.S. even though the first was great
Simulacrum (on 16 November 2008)
This came to us only 4 days ago...
01casey (on 15 November 2008)
Disappointing sales... will be interesting to see how week 2 in 'Other regions' go as that was where the core audiences were with the first game... Should've released it earlier in the year, seeing as it's up against Gears 2, LBP, Resistance 2, Fable 2, etc... I agree with ssj12 - bundle it with the console as mandatory
krimoz911 (on 15 November 2008)
I will buy this game when I get a ps3
realill (on 15 November 2008)
Sony will heavily promote it during Q4 on TV along with LBP and Res 2 I guess. http://www.youtube.com/playstation
Aj_habfan (on 13 November 2008)
Bad sales, bad legs, just plain bad. But it still looks fun and at the end of that day that is all that matters - on my Christmas list.
ssj12 (on 12 November 2008)
Sony jsut bundle this and be done
Party Monster (on 12 November 2008)
Game is hella fun. Where was this game when there was NOTHING to play during the summer? I hope the big wigs on top have learned a thing or 2 about market saturation.
headshot91 (on 12 November 2008)
man those sales are very dissapointing, i was expectin over 3 times as much!
Solid_Raiden (on 12 November 2008)
Wow. Not my kind of game..but disapointing, very disapointing.
luistomas8782 (on 12 November 2008)
played yesterday, and it's way better than 1st
stefman1 (on 12 November 2008)
ya im planning on getting this for christmas as well as a lot of my freinds....the same goes for fallout 3, resistance, endwar, and Cod 5
-GhostMLD- (on 12 November 2008)
@gearbox

ur kidding?
SpartanFX (on 11 November 2008)
this game is awesome
Gearbox (on 11 November 2008)
christmas wish list for every1 i know thats y its not selling right now. just wait
outlawauron (on 11 November 2008)
This has to be dissapointing for Sony.
Aprisaiden (on 11 November 2008)
the game came out at a bad time -- a month ago it would of sold ALOT better.
play_ea (on 11 November 2008)
lets hope it has legs like most ps3 games in the eu
Fenristh (on 11 November 2008)
Surprising sales, it's a great game. Released at a bad time I think. In between LBP and Gears of War 2, it didnt have much of a chance.
famousringo (on 11 November 2008)
Ouch. Looks like the market wasn't quite ready for this sequel.
Damstr8 (on 11 November 2008)
itll be fine, legs will keep this one alive, lifetime sales will be 1.5 million.
akuma587 (on 10 November 2008)
This game definitely tanked. Can't say I was too motivated to buy it myself.
ssj12 (on 10 November 2008)
million by jan 1st 2009.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 10 November 2008)
This didn't bomb.
It nuked! It megaton'd!

Ouchies D:
Stats87 (on 10 November 2008)
The Others sales of 40k are only one day, but still, this game is not doing well and will need some major legs.

I think you can chalk this up to a poor release date. This would have been served to be released in Post-Holiday or even the Spring of 2009.
tombi123 (on 10 November 2008)
Hopefully this game will have legs in Europe.
Gearbox (on 10 November 2008)
i have high hopes for this puppy
Squall_Leonhart (on 10 November 2008)
Lets hope that this game has the same problem as Uncharted, being released during loads of other quality games but having amazing legs!
indodude (on 09 November 2008)
Bad choice to release this game along with like a ton of other blockbusters
darthdevidem01 (on 09 November 2008)
@play-ea

uncharted's street date was broken ala LBP thats why.

this is just AWFUL sales wise!
Slavedemonxi (on 09 November 2008)
It's probably getting overshadowed by all the other stuff coming out.
Xen (on 09 November 2008)
Bad start - but this will have good legs. As for "good riddace".. wtf dude.
DMeisterJ (on 09 November 2008)
Wow. This is tragic.
Kantor (on 09 November 2008)
Good riddance. The first one didn't deserve those astronomical sales, it just happened to be the third best PS3 game for a few months (not difficult)
play_ea (on 08 November 2008)
uncharted opened at 35k in america but sales increased soon after maybe the same for this
BrayanA (on 08 November 2008)
Too similar to MotorStorm may be?
arsenal009 (on 08 November 2008)
I had a feeling this wouldn't do as well as the first. The only reason ppl bought the first one was cause there were no other games to buy.
Snake612 (on 08 November 2008)
The first motorstorm has some good first week sales compared to this one. This obvious the beginning of the end of the motorstorm series.
kunaixhaku (on 08 November 2008)
bad job on the release date gears 2, resistance, naruto, fallout, guitar hero, littlebigplanet, valkyria, wut the hell were they thinking.
Gearbox (on 08 November 2008)
damit it was compelety fazed out do to all these other games... LEGS MAYBE?
Munkeh111 (on 08 November 2008)
Awful start, I hope it does well in Others but I am not too sure
Gamer4eva (on 08 November 2008)
It will have legs, you don't just sell 1.7 Mil in NA then open with 30k. It WILL have legs
play_ea (on 08 November 2008)
such a good game shame it stared badly lets hope it does well next week
Barozi (on 08 November 2008)
Not a good start in NA. EU should love the game more.
Squall_Leonhart (on 08 November 2008)
I never even knew that this game was out already. I might have to head out and pick this one up :-)
Sephiroth357 (on 03 November 2008)
Need I say more?
SpartanFX (on 02 November 2008)
this game is awesomeee
Slavedemonxi (on 02 November 2008)
I hope this game doesn't get passed over due to all of the other huge games coming out.
Dodes (on 26 October 2008)
frist one was greet, the second is much better .. really can't wait until get my copy
Dante666 (on 17 October 2008)
Demo was fun, cant wait until its out
slytiger27 (on 21 September 2008)
the first one was fun, this 'should' be better *fingers crossed*
blazinhead89 (on 11 September 2008)
looks awesome
Dark Odin (on 11 September 2008)
EU boxart is much better
ssj12 (on 11 September 2008)
US boxart up
Munkeh111 (on 10 September 2008)
Sorry about the box art, the picture I used had the wrong dimensions, that needs to be changed
321tttrini4everz (on 09 September 2008)
the box art is weird
Simulacrum (on 29 August 2008)
BRING IT ON!!!
DreadRaptor85 (on 14 August 2008)
I'll buy MotorStorm 2 but not the 1st game.
Damstr8 (on 02 August 2008)
should be awesome
superenforcer (on 20 July 2008)
Great sequel!
