Aussie game charts: March 26-April 1

Kane reigns supreme whilst Sony shows Resistance to the competition.

EA Games' Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars outclassed the competition to shoot straight to number one during its first week of sales, taking out the top spots in both the PC charts and the overall top 10 charts.

Meanwhile, the top PlayStation 3 games Resistance: Fall of Man and MotorStorm grabbed respectable two and three spots in the overall best-selling game chart, according to data trackers GfK Australia. The PS2 version of Ricky Ponting International Cricket 2007 managed to slip in at number four while the Xbox 360 version of the same game landed at number 10.

In other charts for the week of March 26 to April 1, Legend of Zelda: The Twilight Princess regained its position at the top of the Wii games, and the Nintendogs titles remained top dogs on the Nintendo DS charts, taking four out of the top 10 positions.

"theres the facts .... looks like sony is doing fine buddy. And its still got 3 top 10 ps2 games " Please don't waste my time you fanboy. The PS3 launch was a disaster, if you get off these forums and read a financial newspaper you'll realize that. Sony have thrown a lot into this console. They made what turned out to be a bad business decision. They opted for a higher price on the basis of the inclusion of the Blu-Ray drive. This was not enough to stimulate the market as Previous consoles have depended on 'lowest price' factors to gain sales. They also over estimated the market demand for HD-DVD. People are not really buying these as they are fairly new, and more importantly, HD compatible TV's don't yet have the numbers to justify a move like this. It was a case of overkill, threatened by microsoft's entry into the console market Sony opted to go for a sure win, also using it as an opertunity to further their own product (Blu-Ray). It backfired. Sony was counting on higher sales, even they admit this. If you think things are going well, think again. There are a lot of unhappy people at sony. You should look at this as a business. Rather than gaming. Then perhaps you'll realize this is about numbers. Sony is a very profitable company, and they will still profit from this. How much of their estimated potential profit they actually have achieved is the real question you all should be considering.

Alternatively sales may have dropped 82% because all the cows noe have their console and the majority of the remaining population couldn't give a dingo's fart for the console. At current rate of sale the intial (per Sony) allocation will last another month and a half. Not so much as having enough in to cover demand, but to make sure that they also have enough on the shelves to collect dust.

well said coldfire trilogy, everyone has got a ps3 now so of course the sales will drop, but to still have 3 of the small number of launch games in the top 10 is quite an achievment. also, waleywu, so what if there is a lot of sequels in the top 10. the ps3 has been out 2 weeks here, and the top 2 are original and exclusive

I was 100% correct on my comment last week, 4 PS3 games already dropped from the top 10 in 1 week.

ColdfireTrilogy "( when the xbox came out it did horrible untill word about halo came out, no one predicted that by the end it would do so well as it did). " Halo came out right away when the Xbox launched. Dude, what are you talking about?

Mr_Bodywave "People talk about the 82% because it shows that the initial shipment of 250k units not only satisfied the launch demand but also the next weeks demand too. Basically anyone who wanted one got one and now sales have collapsed. That means only about 30k were sold in the 2nd week. And guess what--it will be down again in the 3rd week. It is going to be hilarious to watch xbox360 hardware sales jump when GTA4 comes out and how many more copies of it is sold on Xbox360 than PS3. That will be the last straw for PS3 exclusives (if any are left then). What is left? FF and MGS? Yeah, those will be going to xbox. Sony is going to lose all that money they made with PS1 and PS2 and then everyone will get to laugh at them for losing so much money." Sales are down because like anything there is not a limitless population to buy the consoles. Not everyone wants a console at all most adults still dont want one (30+). So yes of course sales will drop consistantly.... same with ps2 ps1 xbox gc gba psp and the 360 .... so i really dont see your point. Exclusives ... games that cost 30+ mill to make are not going to be exclusives anymore because companies want $$ buddy .... its the basic prinicples of buisiness. You do also realize now that the whole ps3 bash fest has pretty much festered out and well ya no one is laughing any more ... ps3 is doing fine now despire your criticism and i dont think your one vote will really matter in the long run. So next time look at the charts ... dont predict the future its usually not accurate. ( when the xbox came out it did horrible untill word about halo came out, no one predicted that by the end it would do so well as it did). heres the facts at the moment: # of games in top ten as of now for each console PS3: 3 PS2: 3 PC : 1 360 : 1 theres the facts .... looks like sony is doing fine buddy. And its still got 3 top 10 ps2 games ... i havent seen an xbox game in um ... weeks/months? Have a good one :P

The Xbox 360 is the console with the most original titles on this chart, a very positive thing.

>No. It broke records in the U.K. because it launched with 1 million unit and there were no shortages. . . It had 200,000 units for UK. and 1 million for worldwide (outside of America and JP)... now, 860,000 units are sold, broke UK, Spain records for as far as I know, and seriously, who do you blame for Wii and Xbox's shortage? So much about Sony's bad launch, eh? >Basically anyone who wanted one got one . . . and HOW DARE Sony for not having a shortage, even with recorder breaking sales record... right?

To those who ask: People mock Sony for two reasons: 1) They don't have the console in question or 2) They have nothing better to do than waste time on a forum mocking a console they don't even own

blackace

No. It broke records in the U.K. because it launched with 1 million unit and there were no shortages like there were with the XBox 360 & Wii. That's pretty much the only reason it broke records. Both the Wii & XBox 360 would have easily smashed that record if they had launch with 1 million units in the U.K. at launch. As I said previously, you can't sell what's not on retail shelves. Yes, we know the console war is far from over, but the PS3 is still far, far aware from 3.5 million sold. They should hit that mark some time in June and July. Wii with be close to 9 million by then and the XBox 360 will be hitting 12 million. _______________________________________________________ waleywu_basic I find it funny how NOBODY's talking about UK's 162,000 launch weekend, which broke ALL console record, but yeah, took no time to jump on the 82% number. let's face, by the end of this weekend, 1 million PS3 wll be sold outside of Japan and America. and putting PS3 number to 3.5 million. worldwide, The console war is not over, people!

NIce to see ps3 still doing good. And as far as ps3 sales dropping 82% in the UK thats still another 30,000 units sold which is still good. BUt the press and anti sony fans will jump on it anyway.

The PS3 doesn't really rule, except for FF12, there just hasn't been any quality games released in Australia for a while. Look what we have in the top tens of all the lists, pretty much brand name (cartoons, movies e.t.c.), Mass Produced (Sims, Warcraft , Nintendogs) and games that are still there because little kids are still buying them (again those platformers, Nintendogs). I'm so desperate for a decent game i'm ordering Pokemon DS in from America, and after that will have to wait til Shadow Hearts2 and Valkyrie Profile 2 (for RPG goodness) come out, and all of the nintendo games for the Wii. We just don't have anything good out at the moment that hasn't been sitting on the shelf since christmas or before!

The ps3 just came out over there. Of course they are going to have games in the top 10 when there haven't been that many games coming out over. 3 to 4 months from now is when it will really matter who is in the top rankings. Until then stop with the fanboyism.

Ricecake, why use my own ideas when your supplying such good ammo yourself. Its not my fault if you can't follow the thread through and forget what you've already posted.

I'm still looking at your last comment TTDog.... it seriously makes zero sense. What exactly is the problem? Very good, you managed to copy and paste something.... would you like a cookie? I still dont understand your second paragraph. was there a typo or something? Lol, if your gonna beak me, come up with your own ideas.

Will partly agree atrimus, the biggest source of negative press for Sony pre PS3 launch was Sony themselves, and the whole 360 Elite thing shows that Microsoft can do the same thing. I would love to see the PS3 suceed, but the arrogance Sony have shown over the whole episode has been immense, if Microsoft had tried pulling some of those stunts the fanboys would have been up in arms.

RiceCake
RiceCake

maybe you should put on your glasses and read a bit more carefully: I didn't say that you said it was failing. read it again and notice "falling" which is exactly what you said. "PS3 dropped 82%". I swear that most of the people online are no older than 5

atrimus

there was no need for PS2 fanboys to give the 360 a moment in the limelight TTDOG, because the press made sure to give the limelight themselves. Sony's bad PR blunders have been dangling that limelight over the 360 every since E306. but with news like this--PS3 games breaking into the top ten (a small feat to some, but a good feat nevertheless)--Sony won't be towing that light for too long, and the "just-as-F'ed-up" stuff Microsoft does (such as charging almost $200 for a 120gb HDD) will start to show. to me, that sounds like a sonnet of balancing the industry a bit.

TTDog
TTDog

Didn't say it was failing... just that sales had dropped by 82% now the launch excitement has disappeared. If you're going to comment on a post at least read the comment first, and if the comment makes reference to others check them as well.

RiceCake

TTDog, why do you always have to post negativity when the PS3 is doing good? Do you think ANYBODY is actually affected by your comments about "the PS3 is falling already!"? I dont recall the X360 HAVING any lime light when it launched. it was the most poorly built console to date! I have not heard of a single PS3 having problems. And if there are a couple, its still waaaaaay better than the numbers the 360 had. I think you'd be better off complaining to a wall.
