Forums - Gaming Discussion - (Updated: GoW wins - Both bad) Sales - God of War Ascension vs Gears of War Judgement

I'll try to update this throughout the year.  With Judgement having a bigger launch neither seems to be having great legs.  God of War Ascesnion does pull out in front.  Both seems to be a bit of a disappointement and unless they get bundled this holiday it likely won't get much more exciting than this.  Taking Two months for them to sell 50-130k

Gears of War Judgement - 1.35m

God of War Ascension - 1.61m

Also how much do you all think the change % will be for Gears in its 2nd week?

Considering Gears usually sells lots of millions week 1, I think from a prequel perspective, GOW:A is performing better.

I did not expect that big of a drop in week 2.

Gears had the bigger drop from Gears 3 so I assume it'll also have a much bigger drop. I expect God of War Ascension to perform better and to outsell Gears within in first 10 weeks.

I think that Gears will drop approx the same percentage or more than God of War. Word of mouth is bad on Judgment from the fans so those who were on the fence before launch will prob wait for price drops.

Yep. God of War dropped by approximately 50% from III (~600k), while Gears dropped by ~75% (>2.2m). 

I see them ending up pretty even once the year is out. It all depends on bundles though, although Sony don't bundle GoW often and I don't think Gears gets bundled often either.

Wow so Gears did absolutley terribly compared to the last one but still beat God of War lol.
