Lots of fun with this

Nice sales,but deserves at least 3mil sales.
TheConduit (on 04 February 2011)
IMpressive Japanese sales.
kivi95 (on 04 February 2011)
Great first week in JAPAN!!
yahoocom1984 (on 25 January 2011)
Dragon age is the most successful new RPG IP this gen for sure
TheConduit (on 13 January 2011)
Hope Dragon Age 2 for the PS3 doesnt suffer from the same level of slowdown as the original
Iveyboi (on 19 November 2010)
1 million!
ivanpgcs (on 16 November 2010)
1 million next week
Salem (on 13 November 2010)
Its about to hit 1 mil, just a little more
Son1x (on 26 April 2010)
First 2 weeks are only Australia, I believe.
jbrist (on 16 April 2010)
Those first two weeks in EU are hilarious, maybe there were some serious shortages?

I bought my copy on Boxing day in the sales, 15 for a brand new copy with the 2 DLC codes is a bargain, considering it was 40 usually...

I haven't even used the codes either, maybe I should sell 'em off, haha.
Notorius.A.i.G (on 11 April 2010)
Gonna finish with around 1.5 - 1.7 Mill lifetime.
Severance (on 20 March 2010)
i notice that PS3 games get good legs many times.
i thought this bombed at first (hey don't blame me! look at the first 2 weeks!)
good sales deserves more but every bit helps =]
jester2358 (on 15 March 2010)
wish the sales were higher however, it will definitely hit 1 million maybe more(1.5) with the constant dlc and expansions, and of course the all powerful sequal boost.
girgosz (on 11 March 2010)
I still don't believe the first 2 weeks are the real numbers.
blueknight (on 09 March 2010)
@marshmellowman it was outsold on the 360 because there has been alittle over 22 million 360's sold in America to just over 13 million ps3's. EU. is about fifty fifty in console sales
Statix (on 09 March 2010)
750k doesn't seem that bad, considering it's a WRPG that looks somewhat generic at first glance. The Xbox audience would naturally be more receptive to this type of game.
MarshmallowMan (on 26 February 2010)
Weak effort here. Shouldn't have been outsold on 360.
getrdone (on 12 February 2010)
Did this get adjust up by 100,000 because I thought it was around 600,000
Pho_Hybrid (on 09 February 2010)
not bad, however its tied with Demon's Souls, which doesn't even have Europe to support it :/
Munkeh111 (on 06 February 2010)
It's not really showing that great legs at the moment unfortunately....
postofficebuddy (on 04 February 2010)
@kuddles Well Mass Effect did abyssmally but Fallout 3 pulled some respectable numbers. Almost a 10% attach ratio for 360 at the time. And the 360 version probably did better in Japan because of the DLC.
TheConduit (on 03 February 2010)
Reason why it sold so poorly on PS3

kuddles (on 31 January 2010)
Yes, the Japanese hate WRPGs more than they hate FPS titles. Look at sales for Fallout 3 or Mass Effect for reference. So, it probably will come out but it's not a top priority.
postofficebuddy (on 29 January 2010)
No Japanese release? Are they really that unreceptive to WRPGs?
rccsetzer (on 23 January 2010)
That game is superb. Deserves 10 million sales LTD (all combined)!
iWarMachine (on 22 January 2010)
this game could be another "silent seller" like uncharted or LBP. just like VV888 pointed out.....
FaRmLaNd (on 19 January 2010)
Its the same reason why a lot of more Japanese flavoured games sell better on ps3 as opposed to the 360.

The xbox brand has always sold western rpg well. Especially games from bioware.
Abberon (on 18 January 2010)
The sales suck because everyone bought it for PC instead. If you have a decent gaming PC, there's pretty much no reason to own a 360. PS3 is a different story. Either way though, the PC version is a lot better and I bet the PC sales beat out the combined 360/PS3 sales.
Kushalafang (on 17 January 2010)
Bioware has more street cred on 360, still a great game though
st_muscat0 (on 17 January 2010)
@MarshmallowMan I have absolutely no idea at all, I guess 360 owners just must love Bioware :P
MarshmallowMan (on 16 January 2010)
Thanks for the correction. But if the graphics are superior on the PS3, then I'm even more confused about the discrepancy in sales between the two console versions. Why the difference?
vv888 (on 16 January 2010)
Uncharted FW:0.13M
Uncharted LW:2.95M

LBP FW:0.33M
LBP LW:3.04M

DAO FW:0.10M
DAO LW:0.59M
Devilater (on 15 January 2010)
Great game,, i hope it gets to 1 million, people need to try this game out.
Munkeh111 (on 14 January 2010)
Disappointing sales, but it will keep on selling for a while
binary solo (on 14 January 2010)
That's it. I'm getting this game for PS3. I can't let the PS3 version sink to oblivion. I was considering getting the PC version (I'd need a better PC first), but these numbers are abysmal compared to 360 and it's totally undeserved. I don't want to see Bioware become exclusive to 360/PC because of relatively poor sales on PS3.
Notorius.A.i.G (on 13 January 2010)
It'll get 1 Mill !
vv888 (on 11 January 2010)
GTA4,Demon's soul,GOW1&2,
I know I know,but we can still give this one a warm hug,right??
st_muscat0 (on 10 January 2010)
@MarshmallowMan um how about no. Gamespot never said the 360 version has better graphics, they said the 360 was the worst one, giving it an 8.5, PS3 one a 9.0 and finally a 9.5 for the PC one.
MarshmallowMan (on 10 January 2010)
@vv888, I agree it deserves 1M sales. The gamespot article states that the graphics are mildly better on the 360. Is that the sole reason the 360 version is outselling the PS3 version by a 2 to 1 margin? Hard to believe, since PS3 players usually say they prefer RPGs.
vv888 (on 04 January 2010)
I've been hearing shit from shitties about PS3 for almost 3 years.

---This game is a great one and PS3 version deserves 1mil sales.
kunaixhaku (on 01 January 2010)
this games $39.99 everywhere in canada, not my type but ppl who do enjoy it can't believe not picking this up on the ps3 it's the better version of the both consoles sad to see the better version underperforming :/
goyolap (on 01 January 2010)
that is common that a game is worst in a console but a consider that argument not that effective it is a great game and I have played the pc version and I ownd the ps3 version not mucho of a diference so go buy this game is a great one it deserves 1 million copies in this plataform at the very least
-ku- (on 30 December 2009)
If its 40 I might get it but then again many people are disappointed that his game is worse on consoles.
Aj_habfan (on 30 December 2009)
Only $40 at most stores now, I'll probably pick it up soon!
Munkeh111 (on 24 December 2009)
Sales are holding up decently, but tbh, this hasn't really hooked me yet
YannickYAD (on 23 December 2009)
Statix : because the game was delayed in europe for PS3.
Statix (on 19 December 2009)
Why are the sales so low in the first 2 weeks of Others?
Me (on 18 December 2009)
totally addicted to this game, amazing game
FaRmLaNd (on 18 December 2009)
Dissapointing sales so far. But it will have legs. Plus its launched was botched.
Munkeh111 (on 17 December 2009)
At least the legs are holding up nicely... I still maintain it will get to 1m
kunaixhaku (on 17 December 2009)
should've came out day and day with 360 bad move on their part this is the better version of the two not counting pc.
Crystalchild (on 16 December 2009)
bought it in others, great RPG!
blueknight (on 14 December 2009)
im surprised its not at 500k right now
Munkeh111 (on 12 December 2009)
Slower than expected... it will take ages to get to 1m
Slimebeast (on 12 December 2009)
Of course it will sell over 1 million. Easily.
Heavenly_King (on 10 December 2009)
Great game, hopefully it will sell 1M :D
Bagaren85 (on 07 December 2009)
8nawt753: It was delayed in europe.
8Nawt753 (on 06 December 2009)
What kind of debut week is that for others!
Munkeh111 (on 06 December 2009)
@ arctic gabe, Fallout 3 has sold plenty on PS3, and this is just coming slowly. It will sell 1m copies, I am not worried about that
Pho_Hybrid (on 06 December 2009)
I see ur point, and I mostly agree with u.... but what about Demon souls
although its Japanese made, its in a more dark style, which recently has been a trend which western games have followed, and its having nice consistent sales
darthdevidem01 (on 06 December 2009)
I really want 1 million + for this game
Munkeh111 (on 06 December 2009)
Nice black friday increase
ArcticGabe (on 02 December 2009)
Wow only 0.2 million sold? Campare to more than 0.5 on xbox.... This will show EA the economic benefits if they port ME to PS3.... look @ borderlands and Fallout3, wake up devs No wRPG love on PS3.
donsterydo2 (on 02 December 2009)
Come on people, don't you want to see Mass Effect 2 & 3 on PS3 ? Your choice ;-)
Well I thought it would sell better both on PS3 and X360.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 01 December 2009)
I take back what I said.
BrayanA (on 01 December 2009)
no PS3 love for Bioware :-(
Ldn.se (on 30 November 2009)
One more sold to me today!
oldschoolfool (on 28 November 2009)
not true at all!!!!!!
--OkeyDokey-- (on 28 November 2009)
So far, I'd have to say this is the most boring game I've played this generation.
Munkeh111 (on 27 November 2009)
Poor start in Europe, hopefully it will have some decent legs
donsterydo2 (on 27 November 2009)
Late start in EU really hurt its sales.
kunaixhaku (on 27 November 2009)
$39.99 at bestbuy and futureshop this week for those in canada go buy!!! i needa get it myself lol
Ssenkahdavic (on 27 November 2009)
Do yourself a favor and buy this game right now! It is amazing
mario64 (on 27 November 2009)
Come on people, buy this game, it's absolutely AWESOME and deserves a lot more sales. Go go go, buy 2 copies.
outlawauron (on 24 November 2009)
Others does include only main Europe. It has nothing to do dodgy figures but with releases in smaller countries.
haxxiy (on 23 November 2009)
@ sabby_e17

Look at EU release date and you'll understand why.
sabby_e17 (on 22 November 2009)
How come "Others" numbers are so low? Is it a mistake?
Vergis (on 21 November 2009)
And yeah, I do have the game and so far im LOVING it. The story is fantastic
Vergis (on 21 November 2009)
Those figures are well off lol, the game was only released in the UK Yesterday ( 20/11 ) so expect alot more next time they update their dodgy figures.
darthdevidem01 (on 21 November 2009)
Trust me people this game will have legs like anything!
darthdevidem01 (on 21 November 2009)
TheConduit (on 21 November 2009)
Im in Australia and it released on the 19th when I picked it up.
ozsman (on 20 November 2009)
btw the story is amazing
ozsman (on 20 November 2009)
once i figured out the combat system the game seems to be a bit more fun...but the graphics are week
darthdevidem01 (on 20 November 2009)
Bagaren85 (on 20 November 2009)
Yeah, it was out yesterday in europe.
outlawauron (on 19 November 2009)
Those are the numbers in Others in the only region it has been released (Australia) I think.
HelloMotto (on 19 November 2009)
uh.. is this now PC numbers or console numbers?

others numbers are way too low.
Munkeh111 (on 19 November 2009)
Good second week, I wouldn't expect a huge opening in others proper
Munkeh111 (on 19 November 2009)
Just got it today, the graphics are pretty poor and the combat still confusing, but intriguing nonetheless.
However, I think I will play AC II first
ylowbstard (on 18 November 2009)
Best console version by far... but a far ry from it's PC bretheren!
SaviorX (on 15 November 2009)
Needs 570k more in USA before 11/03/2010
Munkeh111 (on 13 November 2009)
Okay start, it should reach 1m, but not before Christmas
dolemit3 (on 13 November 2009)
PC numbers sneaked in just as I suspected.
TheConduit (on 13 November 2009)
This is not out in Australia (aka others) I rang and checked and it is not.
Ldn.se (on 13 November 2009)
It's on my radar. I hope the game got online co-op like Demons Souls.
Chrizum (on 13 November 2009)
This is embarassing... PS3 version isn't even released in Others, yet the site has tracked it?
AdventWolf (on 04 November 2009)
For the amount of hype on VGC it got I'm surprised there are less than 20 owners.
kicks1989 (on 29 October 2009)
i hope gameplay is not disapointing does it have online coop?
TheConduit (on 21 October 2009)
My most anticipated game of 2009.

Been waiting to get my fantasy fix since Oblivion in 2007 (for PS3)
Naum (on 15 October 2009)
Why is the PS3 version released 2 weeks after the 360 version?
Theo (on 05 June 2009)
They better put coop in it, otherwise it wouldn't make much of a "spiritual successor to Baldur's Gate" as they like to call it.
Aj_habfan (on 20 April 2009)
First *stamps*

Me want.
