Resistance 2 vs Gears of War 2 – The reality of it all

1 min read

So the two big FPS titles have been released and the first weeks sales estimates are in.

It never was going to be a real competition but I did expect something a little closer.

Gears of War 2 – 1 468 366

Resistance 2 – 304 958

That’s 1.1 million fewer sales for Resistance 2, I don’t think the winner of this battle was ever in doubt but the scale of the loss is quite astounding.

However what is even sadder to see is that LittleBigPlanet is not taking the world by storm, this week it comes in at number 15 with sales of 66 278 which brings it’s US total to a mere 414 897.

Can a game get game of the year with mediocre sales?
