Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Why is Little Big Fable 2 outselling Little Big Planet 1?

Fable 2 and LittleBigPlanet come out same day. You saying Fable 2 will beat LBP sales? HA! thats a laugh. I don't think sooooooooooo.


You comparing a gaming site from New Zealand. Care to find one that shows worldwide preorders before you make others believe that this will be true WW also?

I sense a lack of reading comprehension in this thread. But don't worry I blame the government.


Why do I care about NZ they are less than 1% of the worlds population?

LBP on amazon for games in ranked 55

F2 is ranked 42.

LBP is doing well for the fact the 360 has like 2.5 360 for every 1 ps3.

Link or it didnt happen.

Na i think it is because that LBP is a new ip and not many people know about it yet, but fable 2 is the sequel to a game that sold around 3 million or just under and everyone knows its coming.

i think LBP is going to be one of those games that just sell on forever

at the end i think LBP not even going to be massive,

Maybe the 5 million more xbox users have something to do with it. Just a thought.

Except there are more PS3 users than Xbox 360 users in this sample and you didn't read the thread. Its all about New Zealand.


isnt 360 bigger in AUS and NZ? Also aren't these rankings just like quoting amazon?

The 360 is bigger in Australia, but a lot of that is due to the fact that it launched much earlier and its price is lower. The two swap sales positions each week pretty randomly. As for New Zealand, the Sony domination is pretty much like Nintendo domination in France or Germany. It's not unusual for the New Zealand charts to show a completely Sony top 10 (save for PC titles), even though the country is highly casual and most of the games are casual games like The Sims. If it was highly casual, I would think the Wii would sell well. Sony's name is pretty big among the kiwis though.

By the way, fair posters, Squilliam has a habit of making joke threads and this is one of them. He made that pretty easy to figure out as well.





I think LBP will start slow, with legs, and Fable 2 will start big with no legs. That's how casual/core games work.

I don't need your console war.
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor.
You're power hungry, spinnin' stories, and bein' graphics whores.
I don't need your console war.


Yes because anecdotal sales of one store in New Zealand matters. Ya know I just bought Stat Wars: The Force Unleashed on Wii a few days ago and I saw no one else buy the other versions. So obviously ST:TFU on Wii is selling a hell of a lot better on Wii and the others flopped. Hell from my view it's selling 0.

Anecdotal sales are worthless and always will be.

how can you call it a joke thread when it's not funny.
