It has shown good legs. Glad to see it will be a million seller soon.

damn how did this sell more in American than Japan, wtf do people play in Japan these days
WebMasterFlex (on 21 July 2013)
1 million ? Damn HD Collection works damn good.....
SunofKratos (on 21 April 2013)
So it looked liked my prediction of about 1 million wasnt far fetched.
Kyuu (on 01 March 2013)
I got mine through PSN also. Planning to get an actual copy later and keep it sealed.

@thewastedyouth its cheaper to buy on the PS store than box in a lot of places, I imagine PSN sales would be quite good as a result. I bought mine alone for 1/2 price on PSN.

why are japanese sales so low???

Also sorry for the super long comment I had a lot to say and had no idea it would be that long so my apologies.

@pitzy272 It didn't outsell MGS collection because the numbers for MGS only include the western sales and exclude Japanese sales of the HD edition. ICO and Shadow numbers are worldwide including Japan. ICO and Shadow is .71M worldwide while MGS PS3 western sales are .67m and including Japan sales of the HD edition it would be .77m worldwide. That does not include the Peace Walker HD edition sales but those are two separate games in Japan so it would be unfair to include both edition sales but it would also be unfair to compare ICO and Shadow to MGS when only one game includes Japanese sales. If you take out ICO and Shadow Japan numbers and only include western sales like MGS collection then ICO and Shadow would be .58m compared to MGS .67m. Also it is worth noting that ICO and Shadow came out earlier than MGS so it had more time to sell. In North America ICO and Shadow only came out six weeks earlier so that isn't much time however MGS numbers in North America are much higher. In Europe however ICO and Shadow came out over 4 months before MGS did so that was a large amount of time yet MGS numbers in Europe are now equal to ICO and Shadow in a much shorter span of time. It might also be worth mentioning that MGS also has an XB360 version which is selling quite well so if someone wanted to buy MGS collection they don't have to buy it on only the PS3, if it was exclusive to PS3 it probably would have sold even more on the PS3. So no ICO and Shadow did not sell more than MGS however it has indeed sold very well for an HD Collection and the fact that it is even close to a big series like MGS in sales is indeed very impressive. I think both of these HD collections will eventually sale over 1 million lifetime which is very successful but especially so for ICO and Shadow. A big series like MGS selling over a million with an HD collection is excellent but expected however a much smaller series like ICO and Shadow selling over a million is not only excellent but also much better than many would expect considering the sales of the original games. I think a lot of people never played these games before so maybe that's why it selling so well besides the fact that obviously they are great games. With MGS there were obviously much more people that played those games when they first came out so maybe they were less likely to buy these games again because they already have them in their collection however because it's a large series it is still selling more than ICO and Shadow. Even it's XB360 version is almost .5m and will certainly be much higher than that lifetime. But still they are both big hits for HD collections and are both obviously great games.

It going to hit 1 mil early next year

TLG will never be released :(
pitzy272 (on 11 June 2012)
Wow, amazing that this has outsold the MGS collection in almost the same time frame, especially considering MGS collection brought a brand new MGS game to the ps3 that many MGS fans (myself including) have never played. Considering MGS games have consistently sold more than 5 million copies, I think it's likely that TLG (if it ever does release) will have much better sales than the two team Ico games released on the ps2.

Never played Ico or SotC, but this collection is on the top of my "wanted games" list.

edit: PSN

It only sold 46k this year but I hope it could reach 1 million retail. It's really cheap on PS so most people I know bought that version.
billie91 (on 10 February 2012)
Very good sells imo. I Think it will reach a 1.00m at the end of this year.
SnakeDrake (on 14 January 2012)
411,161 left
Iveyboi (on 10 January 2012)
590K? Definitely profitable
-girgosz- (on 08 January 2012)
It's really cheap on PSN. It could be over 700k now.
SnakeDrake (on 06 January 2012)
413113 to go for 1mil
MrMofongo624 (on 18 December 2011)
amazing!
thehusbo (on 20 November 2011)
showing sum nice legs. really deserves it. WHAT A CLASSIC!
-girgosz- (on 19 November 2011)
Amazing sales. This will make a HUGE profit.
Kyuu (on 19 November 2011)
Easily deserves 1M :) can't wait for The Last Guardian.
kivi95 (on 11 November 2011)
Good to see that the game got a little boost :)
DonFerrari (on 11 November 2011)
400k and growing. I believe it will hit at least 600k maybe 750k by the end of holiday and 1M LTD is really possible.
pezus (on 11 November 2011)
Wow!
enditall727 (on 11 November 2011)
is this game really going to climb to 1 million? O_o
Mordred11 (on 09 November 2011)
Nice boost.
-girgosz- (on 09 November 2011)
35K this week. Really nice!
Fufinu (on 28 October 2011)
Deserves amazing sales. Just finished ICO and was blown away by the ending!! Now on to Shadow!
Solid-Stark (on 25 October 2011)
@pezus it sure did.
drakesfortune (on 25 October 2011)
This will have very long legs.
pezus (on 21 October 2011)
Wow, this dropped off fast :S
Ldn.se (on 15 October 2011)
Amazing games! Glad i was able to buy these cus I never had a PS2. .
postofficebuddy (on 13 October 2011)
92k according to NPD. Spot on. Nice tracking VGC.
Heavenly_King (on 10 October 2011)
a second ago I killed a Collossi :D
Iveyboi (on 10 October 2011)
Proof that if actual care goes into the collections (compared to splinter cell, prince of persia), gamers will respond!
JustThatGamer (on 08 October 2011)
It's because this game is much bigger in Japan than GOW, however the legs in Japan will probably be bad as they almost always are. I think this game will only sell a little over half of what the GoW Collection has, which is still impressive. It's definitely going to be a 1 Million+ seller imo.
Mordred11 (on 08 October 2011)
It had a slightly bigger debut than the GoW Collection! Amazing.
Mordred11 (on 08 October 2011)
i'm really,really pleased with this opening!
snyperdud (on 07 October 2011)
Similar opening to the GoW Collection. I think we may have another 1 Million+ seller on our hands.
Mr Puggsly (on 06 October 2011)
Not bad at all. Especially considering how piss poor some of the other collections did.
jester2358 (on 06 October 2011)
opening similar to gow collection hopefully this goes almost as well.
Ultr (on 06 October 2011)
love the games! great they brought it to HD cuz I never played them on the ps2
Bristow9091 (on 06 October 2011)
This opening is pretty decent, and hopefully it'll show nice legs too, I'll definitely be buying this sometime in the near future!
Machina (on 06 October 2011)
236k first week xD
Iveyboi (on 05 October 2011)
Oh man Shadow was sooo far ahead of its fine. I am loving the ability to replay it. I never played Ico so I am super stoked to play it!
yog-sothot (on 05 October 2011)
Years ago, I borrowed ICO and SotC from a friend and loved them both, I'm glad I will soon own those games !
italo244 (on 05 October 2011)
@-girgosz I think so!
-girgosz- (on 05 October 2011)
Really nice opening in America. Possible million seller?
gipsy_jack (on 05 October 2011)
i think i'll buy it till the end of the year
malonee (on 01 October 2011)
ICO is my favorite game all time. I hope more people experience the game with this release.
EdStation3 (on 30 September 2011)
Wow, I was like 90k, decent for a PS2 HD collection, then I see it's only Japan...this will probably sell slightly less than the original SotC release on PS2. Amazing!
Mordred11 (on 30 September 2011)
great sales!
Iveyboi (on 30 September 2011)
Will buy soon
pezus (on 30 September 2011)
Great opening in Japan imo
