    Is this true? I'm not sure I believe that source.

    It's just saying that Metroid sold more in its first week than Bioshock in its second week. Not that Metroid has sold more than Bioshock overall.

    allthough if mp3 did sell more than bioshock i wouldn't be that surprised since wii has more sales than the 360 and 360 fans are waiting for halo 3 which comes out only a month after bioshock,

    I doubt it they messed with any numbers, but the numbers appear to only represent amazon data. I'd rather see total sales figures rather than amazon rankings--not that they aren't interesting.

    Personally I would expect MP3 to outsell Bioshock, not surprising whatsoever. Bioshock doesn't appeal to as many 360 owners as MP3 does to Wii owners.

    I can't turn a corner without running into someone begging me to buy bioshock. And you may be right about the numbers, but MP3C hasn't got nearly the level of free publicity bioshock has.

    It's just surprising because up until now Bioshock was the sure-as-heck winner for Best FPS. I'm quite surprised at how many copies Metroid has sold...though I don't know the number, I know that Bioshock was sold out everywhere. If MP3 outsold that then i'm thoroughly impressed.

    I guess I wasn't a rare case. I decided to buy it the day it came out, but before that day I wouldn't even look at the game. Just something about it drew me in.

    I take all these figures with a pince of salt. Most are just ammo for fan boys to express how big their cyber dick is.

    mp3 beats bioshock in its first week during bioshocks second week? nothing wrong with that. but they offer no sources besides the site itself which leads to an infinite loop of you clicking at their site.

    very true, the whole wii beating 360 in sales things (which hasnt even been offically confirmed but people jumped to the conclusion it was true) just lead to wii owners having something to rave about that means nothing to them. which is why my post in one of those threads was along the following:
    wow, i didnt know Miyamoto had so many sons.

    ^^True, compare prime to bioshocks first week and use reliable sources rather then that site.

    Hmm, I wonder how brawl will compare to halo.

    Install base leads to more, better 3rd party games. If you know of some other way to improve the lineup, let me know. Having the fastest selling console means a reason to hold on to your [STRIKE]Wi[/STRIKE]... Revolution.

    I don't deny people jumping the gun, but when the Wii has officially outsold the 360, players will have reason to rave.

    The question is... What will sell more? Halo 3 or Super Smash Bros. Brawl?

    Probably Smash Bros.
    Why?
    Japan.

    Halo 3 will have virtually no sales in Japan while Smash will sell a ton there. Even if Halo outsells Smash in the US, the Japanese numbers for Smash will more than make up the difference.

    I honestly believe that in the US Halo 3 will outsell SSBB, overall though, I think you're right, because of Japan there will be more SSBB copies sold than Halo 3 copies worldwide.

    For all you who are blind to PC gaming... Bioshock is on there too.

    Many who have high-end PC's also have 360's so that would lower the sales across each platform (with people having to pick only 1)




    What has sold more overall Bioshock (pc+360) or MP3:C?
    I'm going to get both the PC version of Bioshock and MP3 though, demo of Bioshock was great and I know MP3 is even though I havn't played it.
