2.8 million copies of Medal of Honor: Frontline sold worldwide.

Is that 2.28?



What a poorly done list, seems to be a mix of shipments, npd, and US/UK/Japan (with various other combinations) numbers.  As well as some really obvious omissions such as GTA3.

There's no doubt that this list is very wrong, but I do find the Jak & Daxter numbers interesting, where did they get them?



The omissions are cute, brought about only to try to create a 'fair' picture of the top PS2 sellers. Not too much GTA, no licensed games to be found and the near complete absence of Need for Speed.



Tag - "No trolling on my watch!"

Not only is this list wrong, the guy who made it can't count

3.3 million is less than 3.2 million these days?



OMG... whats with all the lists lately? Best games of the decade, best selling games etc? They are all crap thats the real problem :|
