500k units week 1............

Not bad for a game..............but a terrible flop for a highly anticipated/highly hyped PS3 EXCLUSIVE.

Is it just me, or do I smell something fishy? Smells like the screaming of people renting their games (like Truthsettingufree) instead of buying them. It also sounds like people are buying Bluray movies instead of games, huh? Seriously though this is not bad sales for a game. But its not excellent.

Lol I agree with kendo. I guess the genre of game is kinda unpopular though, that may have had an effect.

This is true but if you look t sales figures for most PS3 exclusives 500K units in the first week is pretty good, I think some people have waited for feedback first as it is not a normal genre of games.

That still does not explain why 360 exclusivs sell more than PS3 exclusives anyway. I guess PS3 fanboys are like Steve Jobs, there not gamers, or most of them arent. As DarthQball said, he bought it for a Bluray player.

It ain't good if you compare it to the 360 exclusives. ODST sold 2 million in 24 hours.

True but you are talking about an already well known IP, where Heavy Rain is a total new IP and in many way considered a new genre so it would be unfair to compare its sales to this established and very popular IP and genre.

But it does puzzle me that so many fanboys hype all these exclusives and don't buy them it is a joke, I am no fanboy of any console but properly own 90% of the Exclusives on the PS3.

I am also sure that there was a fair percentage of them 500K sales that where purchased by people who are not fanboys but just own a PS3, me included with a few others on this site.

@ demondragondude

With you been a fellow Brit you must of noticed all the shops over here have been sold out of that game since release. The UK has gone mental over this game for some reason? Two of my mates who are PS3 users have been trying to pick up a copy since release to no avail.

However it seems the hype for the game in the UK hasn't been repeated anywhere else in the world so thats always good news.

Fair enough, Halo is an established IP. But the PS3 also has exclusive, established IP's which haven't sold very well during launch week. Uncharted 2 comes to mind.

They have had stock issues here in the UK but you can pick it up from Shop-to.net

I get most of my games from them and they are very quick delivery. Check them out

I should share this information with my friends.... But I think it would be for the greater good to protect their hard earned cash been wasted on this game, HAHA!

Killzone 2 only selling 2 million copies is one of the most embarassing cases of them not buying games.


On another note, Mass Effect 2 is at 1.5 million, a very healthy number......currently more then MAG and Heavy Rain combined Razz

This is obviously because as Truthsettingufree does, he only RENTS games apparently. Also PS3 fanboys buy Bluray movies.

when heavy rain was kinda different because it wasn't a shooter, and in my opinion it wasn't really hyped up in the real world only by ps3 fanboys

Shame that Fanboys don't buy it then it look like they only rent it. I never understood why you would renting top Exclusive games on the console, if you are going to hype it then you need to buy it.

Backup your words with your Money, I bought Heavy Rain and I am no fanboy what does that say.

Well I am shocked it sold that many, I tried the Demo and thought it was the most boring game, it was so exciting doing a long button sequence just to find his inhaler.

Thats because its a shooter, and almost every new shooter on the block will sell well. Like Resistance which sold 4 million copies.

Strange how all the PS3 exclusives are "so superior to anything the 360 has" yet the zealots themselves don't think they're worth buying...

Good games get purchased, period.

Well I can only comment for myself but I am fu**ing supporting these pricks (zealots) developers who they worship whilst they aren't and they have the nerve to call me a 360 zealot. They'd probably call you one too.

Truth is, they're (only the zealots, not a PS3 gamer) idiots and can't see we are the ones keeping their console afloat whilst they masturbate over Kaz Hirai & some thin plastic known as the Slim.
