I don't know the validity(since it's a Japanese site reporting Xbox news) or if this has already been posted, but apparently Gears of War passes the 4 million mark.

http://www.gearsofwarzone.com/news/031307a.html

Game Developers Conferenceの中でMicrosoftは、Gears of Warのワールドワイドでの販売枚数が400万枚を突破したと発表しました。発売から4ヶ月弱での400万達成となり、Halo、Halo 2に次ぐ大ヒット作となっています。

So yeah, 4 million in 4 monthes. Nice.

I have a feeling it will end up slightly over 5 million unless Microsoft chooses to release a Platinum version at a discount price.

Note that as of the end of January, GoW has sold about 2.45 million between Japan and the US (the only for sure numbers with some validity). So assuming it sold another 200,000 or so in Feb., that would mean that 1.3 million or so of the sales come from PAL and the other minor territories. So, is that good for an Xbox 360 game in Europe?

I think gears might slowly crawl to a good 6 million in its life (double my original prediction) once it goes platinum and the demo goes up. Obviously this is a far off number, but I imagine halo 3 will stop gears from selling as much as it is.

I have played a good number of games against British, French, Spanish, Mexicans and Australians so I think GOW is getting decent numbers from all around the world.

I added the drop in the bucket 50,000 from Japan because I knew what it was. The US number is like 2.4 mil.

i get it. you didn't like it and wish there wasn't a sequel.

you do know that most people don't agree with you though right?

i checked your post history to see where you are coming from and you said that super mario galaxy looked more like 'a mini game'.

this isn't an insult:

your tastes in game are not close to normal.

3 million by January 19th according to Gamasutra. Now, you're telling me that this game couldn't have sold another million in a near 2 month period world wide. Yea right. :lol

Well seeing as how I'm fluent in the language, I doubt I'd make that mistake. Especially since enough ppl here know some Japanese and would be calling my BS in minutes.

It's sold more than 2 million in the US, and probably another 200,000 in Canada and a couple hundred thousand in other regions. A couple hundred thousand doesn't sound like a lot, but a couple hundred thousand here and there adds up to the total LTD of Resistance.

that's a cheapshot :(

Resistance isn't going to sell as fast because the PS3 install base is still growing. Halo didn't sell a whole bunch all at once.

Resistance isn't going to sell what Halo sold but it's going to sell in the seven digit range eventually.

if it doesn't, there's no justice. Killzone managed to sell millions and it isn't remotely as good a game.

He's probably right. I don't think Gears was the game 360 owners were supposed buy this month.

Alright, lets do some math. Now, since it says it was announced at GDC, it would have to include Feb sales. In the US, that's probably gonna be 200,000 (assumptions, I know). Up to January, it was 2.4 mil in the US, so that's 2.6 mil in the US. Add that 200,000 from Canada, that 2.8 mil. Probably between all the non Europe zones and Japan, that's probably put it at 3 million. Is it that much of a stretch to believe it sold 1 million in Europe total?
