I am so disappointed in this game. I expected something like Fallout 3 but perhaps more lighthearted. But this game is a joke. The quests are the simplest, stupidest quests I've seen in a very long time and the backstory is almost invisible. And the gameplay mechanics are so simple. I have finished the Firestone missions but I simply find no motivation to continue.

So far I'm loving the game. Gameplay is great and I'm loving the humor.

Well it seems to have great legs anyway, we'll see how it goes over the next year, and with a pricecut or two, it should pass the 1m mark easily.

Perhaps Uncharted 2 hurt the opening of Borderlands. But it should have had better legs if PS3 owners really had interest in it.

Anyhow, this is still a $60 game. It'll hit a million after price cuts. Its just too damn good to be ignored.

Uncharted 2 kidnapped many units from Borderlands.

Still, it's a masterpiece for those who look for co-op experiences. Moreover, it's a FPS. What else can you ask for? xD

@ squeeky
Not a good excuse for the overall slow sales so far. The 360 has a bigger shooter fan base and that's why it sold better.

These sales aren't half bad though. It'll sell over a million down the road.

squeeky posted 14/01/2010, 03:55
For those that wonder why sales are less than the 360, this game came out the same week as Uncharted 2. Regardless, pick it up now, it is really good (especially with friends).

The 360 version sold 1.1mil, PS3 sold 400k, so the PC should be at 400 to 500k level since the game is reported to have sold 2mil combined. Not bad.

@ Statix
I'm sure the PC has a hardcore market just as big if not bigger than consoles. It just doesn't reflect in sales thanks to piracy.

On top of that there is a huge market of people that dabble in everything else PC gaming offers.

Statix posted 19/12/2009, 08:12
@Boneitis: When you say PC is the biggest userbase of gamers, are you talking about just the true hardcore gamers that buy new games every month (like the average console gamer)? Or are you including WoW addicts and people that play web/flash games and solitaire? I mean, there is a difference.

@ Ravage27
Nobody said gaming was a top priority of PC users. But its safe to say PCs are the biggest gaming userbase for obvious reasons.

If you play the latest games you definitely want Windows 7. Hence, games help sell their OS.

By the way, your 2 year old laptop running L4D isn't very impressive. L4D has low requirements compared to most modern games. I run it on a 6 year old computer with an AGP video card. Plays fine there as well.

ppl buy Windows for work/school purposes, games are often at the bottom of their priority list. Most games like ME1 and L4D runs perfectly on my 2 yr old laptop which is required for my education

Regardless, I can't play them on the PS3. Gives me less of a reason to purchase a gaming computer.

Also, MS obviously wants great games on Windows. Those game sell their OS. Sony needs to keep their games exclusive in hopes people buy a PS3.

The gap between the two version is just weird, I would understand it if it was 1.5:1 or 2:1 but 3:1 is just strange.

yusuke93_ita: UN2 is not the case, it's only one ex game. On X360 we had ODST, Forza 3, Gay Tony and L4D2 is around the corner.

Uncharted 2 sold well, but not exactly outstanding.

For whatever reason this game didn't appeal to PS3 fans. Its doing even worse than Tekken 6 on the Xbox 360.

They should have just made it exclusive for the xbox 360 it would have probably sold more on the 360 like that. Horrible start for the ps3 version and it hardly has anything to compete with. The 360 version had ballad of gay tony, Forza 3, Halo ODST.

ODST came out at the end of September. So it hasn't been that long.

Regardless, Uncharted 2 is not the reason Borderlands has poor sales on the PS3. Plain and simple.

Boneitis, Uncharted 2 is a shooter. But, point taken, I think Uncharted 2 is in a class head and shoulders above ODST, even if sale don't show it. I own both consoles and love them both BTW. I do think that Uncharted and Ratchet being released at the SAME time is a bigger deal. ODST was released a couple months earlier, and that makes a difference.

@ drakesfortune
If logic like that was true every 360 game would have bombed courtesy of ODST.

Clearly 360 owners enjoy shooters more. Many people came to the 360 for Halo and they continue to buy shooters.

In EU it didn't really have a shot. Released within the same time frame as Fifa 10, Uncharted 2 and on the same day as PES 2010. It did a total of 100k on both 360 and PS3.
