First Alert GT5 P numbers are...

in Sales Discussion on 30 March 2008

I'm getting my copy tomo :)One thing about these predictions though. I know the 1 million retail pre-order rumour but the PS3 only has an install base of 4.7+ million in Europe, do you really anticipate such a high attachment rate?I'd love to be proved wrong on this but I think a lot of the predictions in this thread are going to end up being way off the mark....

Does ioi adjust VG Chartz numbers based on NPD numbers anymore?

in Sales Discussion on 22 January 2008

I always thought he did adjust after NPD figures were released but not necessarily to match those figures. If that was the case and he doesn't any more it would be interesting to know why....

SSB Brawl got 40/40 in Famitsu!!!!

in Nintendo Discussion on 16 January 2008

I've never played a Smash Bros game and I know nothing about it, but given all the hype and expectation I'll probably buy it straight away (none of my friends own a Wii so there's no way for me to test it out first), what should I be expecting from it?...

In UK: FIFA 08 was the best selling game in 2007

in General Discussion on 10 January 2008

FIFA is almost always the best selling game of the year over here (UK). It's similar to Madden in the USA - people buy the new version each year even though they're usually basically the same.I don't care for football myself, I love American football though, so for me it's Madden rather than FIFA....

Are these the system sellers of 2008?

in Gaming Discussion on 09 January 2008

HappySqurriel said: I have argued time and time again that there are no such things as "System Sellers" because even the largest series only have a minor impact in immediate and long term system sales; most of the impact in sales will have already been factored into current sales.There are also many games that have been listed for the PS3 and XBox 360 which will not sell 1 Million...

Uncharted Impressions...

in Sony Discussion on 30 December 2007

I give it 9/10 at the moment. I've just got to the plot 'twist' (which I saw coming. what I didn't see coming was how it completely changes how you play the game, which is excellent - no more of that cover system you hate so much mr. shams). Most of your criticisms do have a genuine basis but are stretched to breaking point with hyperbole and bias....

A quick question about the PS3 and 360

in General Discussion on 19 December 2007

Most PSN games that you buy for your console (Warhawk being the one exception iirc) you can share with 4 or 5 (not sure which it is) other consoles - all you have to do is give your friend your log in details and they can then download the game free of charge using your account.Hope that's of some help....

Will Sony ever make a real change to it's lame ass controller?

in Gaming Discussion on 21 August 2007

The sixaxis controller is the best controller I have ever used (I have never used a 360 controller, so I can't compare the two). I'm glad they didn't change it too drastically. The changes that they did make I love - weighing less, wireless and the core PS button....

VG Chartz = Don't believe it?

in Website Topics on 04 August 2007

Yep, I see these comments a lot of the time on other forums. They mostly find it hard to believe that anyone could possibly have accurate sales figures on a weekly basis, and they do have a point. VGCharts, to my knowledge, isn't claiming that their initial figures are exact. They make projections, albeit pretty accurate ones that go beyond anything you or I could do. The site, to its credit in...
