People just had to see what DNF was after all these years.

Black ops still on this list, thats crazy

Posted by BR4DL3I9H

People actually bought Duke Nukem!?!
 
Crack really is a wonderful thing.

I find it hard to believe 500,000 360's were sold last month, not trying to troll but what does the system have that would prompt such sales numbers?  I would be jumping ship from that console the way the game industry is handling new games ( new game purchase incentives for online games?)
 
Pay for Xbox Live, the internet connection used to connect to xbox live and now if you buy second hand or share games with friends pay for mulitplayer access to individual games.

 I never believe self-published numbers, they always seem to be inflated (like including just shipped to store consoles and not just sales)
 
I face palm that Black Ops is still selling good, when so many other games offer more better online experiences. I wonder if they count the bundled PS3 Call of Duty SKU as a sale of Call of Duty in which I also curse Sony for bundling such a overplayed and overrated game with the system in which new system owners won't look for new better games since they have their call of dooty
 

TL;DR

 
The current state of gaming industry makes me sad-face and angered

more than likely that the LA Noire sales were primarily retail, given that the game is so large in size.

How is NBA 2k11 still in the top ten? It's a great game and all but the season's over. Who's still buying this?

Posted by EverydayOdyssey

How did Infamous 2 sell compared to the first?

Posted by shulinchung

Does this list include PC games? It saddens me to know that the Witcher 2 isn't on the list.

Posted by DrMcKittrick

Shadows of the Damned is going to be one of those games that goes for $200 on ebay in 10 years.

Once again, not only do those numbers not include digital sales, they don't include ANY sales outside the US! I really wish more stories would mention this. There are other places in the world that buy games.
Once again this is a US site so that additional info isn't needed.   Can't believe the Xbox 360 sold over 500k consoles in the month of June.  That is impressive!
how is that impressive?  Considering most of them are probably REPLACEMENT 360's..not original buys.
great games but shit construction.  There's NOTHING impressive about those numbers considering the systems construction "quality"

You'd think that whoever wanted Black Ops would have had it by now.

YAY INFAMOUS 2 is in the top 3
Quite impressive, considering is the only one of the first 4 that is not multiplatform.

call of duty is still on the list!? holy shit

I'm still Playing Duke Mutiplayer. Yeah it's janky as fuck but it's still a ton of fun.  
 
Servers are full too, apparently quite a few people don't really give a shit for review scores.

2nd place is bad enough!

Shadows of The Damned on PS3 and 360 combined: 24 000 sales

Child of Eden: 34 000 sales
 

Might as well stop releases of everything not a shooter or a sports game in the US, ain't that right Nintendo?

Um, both those games are shooters, though. You know... you shoot things in them...

I don't understand why people still buy 360's    I don't mean this in a fanboy insulting way I'm actually really curious   What are you playing?
There's a list of top selling games right there and 7 of them are on 360.... So maybe that's what people are playing? >.>
I was refering more towards exclusives   I'm just wondering what right the 360 has to be the top selling console...   I haven't played mine since I beat Alan Wake and Metro. To each his own I suppose.
People use the 360 for more than just exclusives, it also usually has the best version of multiplatform games. For instance, the 360 version of MK is superior to the PS3 version. Speaking of PS3, there's a console that I only play exclusives on, the latest being Infamous 2.

 
 
No it's not.  
 
The consoles both shair laggyy matches, as well as lag free fights.  
 
The PS3 controller is far superior for fighting games, and the console supports Kratos as well as more easily patched with a download or hotfix.  
 
Dy-sync was patched on PS3 while 360 got some bullshit redownload your shit fix.  
 
So I disagree, but feel free to think what you wish.
Edited by thekingoftoilets

""Coochie Coochie"".... get it.... #2.... that's what sold second best this past month........
 
I will say that Infamous did pretty good for an exclusive, and given that most of the games on the list are multi-platform, thats cool. 
 
Also, I will never get the appeal of the just dance games (not to say there is anything wrong with them). my fiance made me play it, then we went over to a friends and played dance central, now she wants to get a kinect. I guess a majority of people find it fun to have your right hand be the only responsive part of the body?

Posted by wickedsc3

Damn, duke sold way better than i would have thought. Just goes to show reviews don't sell games. Duke got a shit review and sold more than infamous 2 that got a good review.

Posted by the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG

im kinda surprised that DNF sold more than Infamous 2...

I think DNF was a pretty cool game. It felt old but that's because it actually is old, the levels were probably created over 5 years ago. The one liners were as funny as always and except for the 2 weapon limit I didn't have a problem playing that game.

The end of that comment is full of win.
Posted by Branthog

Three good games surrounded by nothing but shit. I'm still going to buy a copy of Duke, myself. I don't know if I'll ever play it, but it belongs on the shelf.

I'm sure MIcrosoft isn't padding those numbers with the free XBox 360s that they're giving away with their back-to-school computer deal.

to be fair, they are probably only a small margin. They do require you to pick up some pretty specific models of laptops last time I checked.

"Detective Cole Phelps, badge 247"

"What can i help you with, detective?"

"Any messages?"

"Yes, Coroner Carruthers has asked you to come down to the morgue to positively identify the Dukie Nukem gentleman you murdered on sales charts."

"Thank you, ma'am"

Ignorance at its best as the derps blissfully ignore the fact digital sales were not included in the article. The real murder, is how Steam is murdering consoles day after day lol.

Once Alice is $25 on Steam I'm pulling the trigger. Looks cool.

Seems pretty easy to guess. If they didn't already own an 360 then they are potentially playing a lot of games. If they did already own a 360, perhaps they had to purchase a new one after their old one died, so they can play the games they are already playing, watching Netflix, etc. Everyone I know that owns an 360 is on their second 360.

Lego Pirates of the Caribbean?? What´s next?

Posted by Brodehouse

What a bummer that two of my favorite games from last month aren't going to get the sales they deserve.

Posted by PLWolf

Cool, the 3 games I bought last month are 1,3,4. I'll take that. Snagged AC:B too, but wouldn't expect to see that.

Posted by EightBitShik

@PXAbstraction: It's because this is a NA site nobody gives a fuck if Ichidichi 28 sold more then infamous 2 here so why fuck up the numbers.

Posted by MisfitToy

I plan to pick up Alice next month. Maybe she'll make the list then...

Posted by Joker369

nba 2k11 still going strong

Posted by Tesla

Hey guys, buy Shadows of the Damned.

Posted by supamon

No shadows of the damned? What a tragedy..

L.A. Noire is still best selling awesome. When are they going to place that on PSN and Xbox Live Marketplace?

3 million+ copies for Duke Nukem Forever, eh, Pachter? Good job, nailed it.

He didn't mean at launch, but rather during the games "valid" lifetime. It's only the release month, wait 1-2 years and the game will have sold quite alot and made back some money.

You dream, General.

Even Pachter himself wouldn't be as big a Pachter apologist as some of the dudes showing up on GB nowadays. As evidenced by the fact he has since cut his own estimate (guess) in half, which might even still be too high. He called this one all kinds of wrong and he knows it; I don't know why other people feel the need to try and defend a position which he himself has already abandoned. I'm sure Pach is big enough to take it on the chin when he gets something quite so badly wrong (and he's had plenty of practice after all).

Posted by MjHealy

It's not bad that Duke grabbed number two but getting to number two with only 370,000 copies sold is not very impressive.

When games like Cars 2 outsell games like Alice: Madness Returns...  Does anyone have any statistics for May? I'm interested in the numbers of The Witcher 2 (As far as I know, it has sold 400k copies the first week, so...).
That was the first thing I thought. So sad that these statistics are usually what drive future development funding. Need more Alice / Spicy Horse games!

I blame EAs marketing for the low sales of SotD. I think it should appeal to many gamers and got good reviews.

Posted by Hizang

How Is BlackOps and Just Dance 2 still selling so much to get in the charts, are there still people out there who haven't bought it?

Edited by Portis

Holy shit I totally read Just Dance 2, as Just Cause 2 at first. That would've been awesome, much to Jeffs chagrin I'm sure.

You know, I didn't expect Mortal Kombat to sell as well as it has but I'm so, so happy that it has. The only thing in the list that baffles me is NBA2K11 -- I happen to be a big NBA fan myself and NBA2K11 is one hell of a game, probably my favorite in the NBA2K series but NBA 2K12 isn't more then 2 and a half months away.

Also, Alice not cracking the top 10 surprised me a little, but Shadows of the Damned not being there did not. Who honestly thought that game would sell?
