How long has this been out and only just past 3.3 million??!! Microsoft need to up the quality of their 1st Party AAA exclusives. Sony is dotting the Is and crossing the Ts in that department.

With digital sales I'd be this is over 4 million. Maybe nearing 5 million if I wanna be REALLY optimistic.

One of my favorite games this gen.

Not bad at all in spite of a fairly modest opening. I imagine this also did fairly well in digital and PC sales. One of my personal favorites this gen.

@darkenergy
im thinking the same, it seems that a lot of X1 titles are undertracked or that some ps4 titles are overtracked too, especially look at fifa 17

@Kerotan wut? Calling people fanboys is nothing to get respect from.

Yeah digital purchase aren't included but some bundles do.

Hmm I thought of something: Microsoft announced Forza Horizon 3 sold 2.5 million and vgchartz had it at just below 2 million, I wonder if this applies to Gears 4 and I wouldn't be surprised if Gears 4 already pass 4 million by now and these sales are good and not bad :)

May never be up to the heights of its predecessors, but this is far from a total disaster. Besides, the bundled argument is silly to me. 1. Because it was hardly mass bundled and 2. Because a sale is a sale.

Wow. To be honest I didn't expect for the game to get those addition 210k sales physical in Late november alone. The holidays will push this to 1.6 physical and maybe 2 mil including digital sales. However, that's still a flop. The original Gears of War did 2 and a half physical sales in it's first year, and IT LAUNCHED IN NOVEMBER and was the FIRST GAME in the series with MUCH LESS XBOX CONSOLES EVEN BEING SOLD when it released compared to 4. This will do decently...MAYBE 4 mil lifetime. But man, even with holidays, the first year sales are BAADDD.

The franchise pretty much collapsed as one of the leading entities that it was last generation. No other way to put it really. Hell, even Judgement had more pre and post release hype than this title.

I'm not the biggest Naughty Dog fan but yea - Uncharted 4 might even be the best selling Uncharted game by the time it's through. Gears 4? Possibly one of the worst selling Gears.

Sales are not that good. Gears of War 2 was selling around 200k per week at this time. I can understand why the sales are lower - people are tired of just Halo and Gears, and after 343 took over Halo people aren't very trusting of newer companies taking over successful IP's. The microtransactions kill a lot of this game for me.

Very good game. Gameplay was top notch, and split screen co-op campaign was really well executed. There could have been more story development, but otherwise, all good. Surprised by sales.

@DialgaMarine - Hah, well that's awfully hypocritical of you considering you do exactly what you accuse me of. Maybe you just ignore when I say positive things about Sony. I didn't buy a PS4 and Vita because I dislike Sony. Do you own a X1 or play these games? I doubt it.

No need to attack me because I like this critically acclaimed game.

While not a good idea he definitely isn't afraid to speak his mind. You gotta respect a man like that!

OT: That's a shame to hear about the online of gears 3 in europe and I'm pretty sure gears 4 will be the same if not worse. It's crazy to think this series used to compete with uncharted. I wonder if they'll rush out a sequel in 2 years or if they'll give it a much needed break.

This game's sales look pretty pitiful, considering it barely sold more on it's 4th week than Uncharted 4 did on it's 26th. It's an okay game, but definitely the worst in the mainline Gears titles.

Given that it will have good legs, I can see it going over two million retail. Underperforms terribly to the original trilogy not counting Judgment, but those are good sales nonetheless, even if a bit disappointing.

@foodfather I find games quickly in Europe in most modes. Gears MP was never that huge, Gears 3 ranked was dead shortly after release too. I don't think they dropped the ball but multiplayer does need some work, with lobby system, matchmaking etc. It's a great game, both campaign and multi though.

Heh, the series is not dead and Gears 4 is not a flop. Even with decline it sells better than a vast majority of exclusives. These sales don't even reflect the digital numbers on X1 and PC.

Maybe Gears 5 and 6 will have better sales. Like many long running series there has been a decline.

Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail.

Gears 1 - 610k
Gears 2 - 1.9m
Gears 3 - 3m
Gears judgement - 760k
Gears 4 - 620k

Insane decline from gears 3. The series should stay profitable but it's halcyon days are long gone.

I think Xbox exclusive games are being sold digitally more so then other games. With the whole buy it once play anywhere concept that have going with their exclusives its more incentive for people to buy digitally. Not sure I like it but that's what they are going with.

If we included digital sales this game should've sold over half a million in the U.S alone. Not too bad, but I wish it could've sold around a million in it's first week in the U.S. BF1 and CODIW was too much for this game.

Is it just me, or are the Preorders extremely low for this? Uncharted 4 had over 706K preorders it's last week. More than 3 times as much. Doesn't bode very well for this game's sales, especially considering that the ONLY strong region for this series is the US. I guess that's why MS has been very hush hush

I've been playing it and love it. Great campaign so far, lots of multiplayer options, online co-op features are great for less competitive players, its practically the perfect game. Should do great in physical and digital sales.
