Dragon Age 2 did not even sell a million, ahaha take that Bioware and EA for trying to screw over your fans

I think the Number is OK, Bioware said this shipped over 4 million copies across 3 platforms

A bit overtracked I would guess. I think the numbers are adjusted up too much.

Dragon Age II

A bit overhyped, not as immersive as the old Black Isle RPGs.
Zlejedi (on 26 March 2011)
crap that should went to DAII comments
Zlejedi (on 26 March 2011)
second week is smaller than second week of DAO by 30% should drop below first one very soon

Hope dragon age 2 has better textures on the Xbox360.
LanceX2 (on 09 February 2011)
AWESOME 2 MILLION. Deserves it!
hudsoniscool (on 03 February 2011)
@ yahoo1984 ya overall but its not fair to pit DAO vs ME2 since the ps3 version came out much later. lets compare DA2 vs ME3. me3 will probably do 3+ million on 360 and ps3 version 1+ million
Mr Puggsly (on 28 January 2011)
Unfortunately, I have to agree with yahoocom1984. I thought this game was mediocre but sales are great. It also hasn't taken big price drops like Mass Effect 2.
yahoocom1984 (on 25 January 2011)
The only reason Dragon age orign hasn't pass Mass effect is Mass effect's exclusive titie on console while DAO has PS3 version. Overall, the total sales of Dragon age origin across 3 platforms destroy Mss effect 2 abd borderlands
hudsoniscool (on 11 January 2011)
what about mass effect and borderlands. DAO wont pass mass effect and borderlands on 360
yahoocom1984 (on 15 November 2010)
Dragon age is the most successful new RPG IP this gen for sure
Salem (on 13 November 2010)
Wow, didnt realize how good this is selling, heres to bioware and WRPGs in general. Good job guys!
Altitude (on 06 May 2010)
You guys are so right about the RPG's on the 360. I seriously had no idea. But since I wrote my last comment I've been on 360 RPG spree and I could easily coast playing RPG's till fall. Just Insane.
mrstickball (on 02 April 2010)
@Altitude -

As others have said, WRPGs on the 360 have done gangbusters this gen. I mean, even Two Worlds did well, despite being one of the worst RPGs ever.

I hope RPGs continue to have a bright future on the 360.
Mutiverse37 (on 11 March 2010)
Just finished the game. Love the Celtic soundtrack. These kind of RPG's have been on the PC since they sere invented in the West I might add haha. With the 360, developers are able to give console owners a taste who have been largely playing JRPG's because those are the only ones that made it to consoles over the last decade or two.
FaRmLaNd (on 27 February 2010)
Who knew?

Take a look at pretty much every Western made RPG on the 360 and you'll see good to great sales.

Multiple multi million selling games in the same genre.

The xbox audience always bought RPG's. Take a look at KOTOR, Fable 1 and morrowind on the original xbox for proof of this.
Altitude (on 26 February 2010)
What the? The 360 sales are through the roof! Who knew there were so many traditional RPG players on the XBOX. That's way more than on the PC which is mind boggling. Bioware is pretty damn awesome.
Carl2291 (on 23 February 2010)
Amazing sales... Really impressive.
torchmoney1 (on 09 February 2010)
nobody could compete with x-box software sell not sony or nintendo they sould just make games only for the x-box
Cueil (on 07 February 2010)
what's retarded is that Mass Effect 2 looks mind blowing but this game is retarded looking on the 360... I'm dissappointed they handed the port off
kuddles (on 31 January 2010)
Yeah, makes sense to me. Not only WRPGs doing well, but all past BioWare console games (Mass Effect, KOTOR, Jade Empire) were on exclusive to Xbox, so that's where their fanbase is.
FaRmLaNd (on 28 January 2010)
Why doesn't it make sense? Pretty much every wrpg has sold better on the 360 this gen...
d21lewis (on 25 January 2010)
Amazing sales for this game. Go BioWare.
PS360fan10 (on 24 January 2010)
Wow, the Xbox version is outselling the PS3 verion 2:1. What the.... doesn't make sense....
ArcticGabe (on 18 January 2010)
Sales are really good, wonder how Awakening will do. 700k ltd I suppose, which is solid for an expansion pack.
Sanzee (on 16 January 2010)
Conglomerate of Badassery
Slimebeast (on 15 January 2010)
Hmm, were these sales adjusted up by 200k? It reached the million mark just a couple of weeks ago I recall. Now it's 1.25 mill all of a sudden. Which is awesome!
Lolcislaw (on 14 January 2010)
Havent completed it yet im about 25 hours in, and thegame is amazing. Orzammar reminds me so much of Moria !
FaRmLaNd (on 08 January 2010)
Loved it!
WiiBox3 (on 05 January 2010)
Wow. I don't usually like this type of Western RPG. I love it!
ArcticGabe (on 05 January 2010)
Awakening announced....
piggychan (on 05 January 2010)
I still dunno whether to buy this or not... maybe when the price drops considerably
ArcticGabe (on 04 January 2010)
million seller, congratulations!!
zarx (on 04 January 2010)
1 million on the 360 alone maybe we will see a Dragon age 2
Sanzee (on 29 December 2009)
Come on, one million baby.
spacetattoo82 (on 21 December 2009)
love it
FaRmLaNd (on 18 December 2009)
Will easily hit a million. Probably 1.5 million overall.
Bagger88 (on 17 December 2009)
Week 6 beat week 5, lot's of discounting but that's a great trend.
FaRmLaNd (on 08 December 2009)
nice fourth week. Bioware were smart to realease this during the holiday season.
Slimebeast (on 05 December 2009)
This game rooooooox!
kuddles (on 28 November 2009)
Sales are actually pretty good when you consider MW2 came out the second week and it's a brand new franchise. I bet you PC sales made up a larger percentage than most games for this one too.
FaRmLaNd (on 28 November 2009)
+1 sales. Loving it so far!
MorgZ (on 27 November 2009)
A very good game, not a great game but well worth a pickup as there are not that many fantasy RPG's around at the moment. The combat and character levelling is very good.
ArcticGabe (on 24 November 2009)
Free falling on the UK chart. :( still confident of this to reach a million year end. 1.5 million life time.
Sanzee (on 22 November 2009)
Come on, keep selling buddy!
I LOVE GIGGS (on 19 November 2009)
very good second week.
SaviorX (on 15 November 2009)
Needs to sell 1.21m more in the US before 11/03/2010
ArcticGabe (on 13 November 2009)
Hopefully a million seller b4 Xmas
YannickYAD (on 07 November 2009)
I'm playing the game yet. It isn't a very beautifull game, but the gameplay is excellent.
I hope that the scenario will follow the trend
squall747 (on 02 November 2009)
Picking it up tomorrow. I'm a big fan of Bioware's rpg's. The code for the armor that works in Mass Effect 2 looks pretty cool too.
TheConduit (on 21 October 2009)
Doesn't the story seem incredible similar to Lord of the Rings.

PS: not that thats a bad thing
themanwithnoname (on 21 September 2009)
This is gonna be good.
Gabriel84 (on 31 August 2009)
Can't wait :D
