I was reading this article
"Data custom compiled by HULIQ News shows a direct correlation between increased pre-orders of Killzone 3 and sales of Playstation 3 consoles."
"HULIQ News has been regularly publishing a weekly tracking chart analyzing the top 20 selling SKUs of video game software and major hardware purchases (e.g. systems and large peripherals, such as the PS Move and Kinect). In watching the trends of early 2011, for a surprisingly long time pre-orders of Killzone 3 were on the proverbial milk carton. In fact, for the week of January 24th, I wrote that "Sony execs counting on [Killzone 3] being a halo title for its Playstation Move controller (not to mention 3D gaming) are no doubt shifting uncomfortably in their chairs as pre-order data rolls in."
I've personally never heard of 'Huliq News' which makes me a little sceptical, but I'm not particularly well versed in these matters so I was wondering what you guys thought. Is KZ3 likely to be a system seller? Obviously I mean more so, than other platform exclusives, I'm sure every exclusive sells at least a few systems. I bought my own PS3 for Killzone 2, so to me it seems plausible, but considering the critical reception of Killzone 3... (worse than 2) I didn't actually think we'd see it performing that well, let alone selling systems.
