Gears 1 = 600k WW first week
Gears 2 = 900k WW first week
Halo 3 = 3.8m WW first week

Killzone shouldve released around the holidays.

 

 Just to make a few additions/corrections:

Gears 1 = 5 million user base when released (as opposed to 20 million for KZ2)

Gears 2 = 1.9 million 1st week (really 3 days since it was released on a Friday)

Gears 1 - 2 released at the same time as CoD3 -5, and Gears 1 released at PS3/Wii launch, thus much more competition for holiday dollars (inlcuding the multiple great games during Gears 2 launch (Fable 2, Fallout 3, L4D, etc).

Resistance 2 was launched during holiday season, thus KZ2 would have too much competition.

KZ2 sales will mirror that of resistance 2 (percentage wise) despite not being in holiday season, as there are no major shooters due anytime soon.

Gears 1 did 900k WW 1st week, and Gears 2 did 1.9 million WW 1st week.


I do agree though, KZ2 should've waited for the holidays.



I predicted around 600K i believe. So this is nice.



4 ≈ One

if you consider the hype - dissapointing sales
if you ignore the hype - good sales for a PS3 exclusive

great release. Basically tying (or passing when we get Japan sales) the sequel to the biggest FPS game since Halo 3 (CoD4) is pretty amazing.

we don't know that yet

the game cost a lot

there will be profit

but nowhere near the amount SONY has amassed from LBP

@ALL

4th best opening week for a PS3 game!!

 

A. I'm not sure there will be profit at all.

B. This game didn't move hardware.

C. This game almost beat the PS3 version of CoD5, not "CoD5." CoD5, overall, destroyed this game in sales, it's a joke to compare the two.

D. Just be happy with the reviews. These sales were expected, and even if they weren't, they are barely above expectations. No megaton here, barely a ripple, move on.

NO NO, NO NO NO.

KZ2 done brill for the time of year



Nobody's perfect. I aint nobody!!!

Killzone 2. its not a fps. it a FIRST PERSON WAR SIMULATOR!!!! ..The true PLAYSTATION 3 launch date and market dominations is SEP 1st

Good Job GG. Almost beat PS3 version of CoD5. Seems like KZ2 is in good company.



GG wouldn't be wrong to make a good mission pack and launch it before next Xmas, together with an edition of the complete original game + expansion pack to lure people not owning it yet.
