KotOR 1 sales figures?


Recommended Posts

Everywhere i read about KotOR, there's always some praise about how a commercial success it was, but i have yet to see any numbers on the amounts of copies sold to this date.

 

Anyone who knows this, care to post a link?

270 000 copies sold on the xbox within two weeks? Sounds like great numbers IMHO, but still far off compared to Diablo or the Sims.

PC games generally sell more than X-Box, I think I remember reading somewhere, due to the fact that more than one type of PC can play that platform, whereas there's only one X-Box. Ah well.

 

It's been rated as the 4th best selling console game ever released.

Hmmmm....Found it. Oops. Sorry.

 

Due to the game rankings a couple of weeks after it's release, KoTOR was then rated 4th by game REVIEWS, not sales. It also said that these go up and down like mad, so it's not 4th anymore.

 

My mistake, so sorry!!!!

 

LOL, and now I see the Game Rankings post! 23 isn't bad!

Here's the link to the gamerankings webpage, and there it states that KotOR is ranked 23rd in terms of review-score ratio (94.2%), not in sales.

Try 1.2 million copies that FF X-2 sold in TWO days in Japan.

As i said, pretty impressive, but not astounding.

1.2 millions is a lot, no game have such results in two days.

 

Xbox sold very few in Japan, if I remenber it sold about 100,000 units and since PS2 market is about 70% of the console market I serious doubt the Xbox (that have 15-20% of the market) titles can sell enough to reach any "top 10" numbers compared with PS2 sales.

I was referring to my own statement on how much KotOR sold, not FF X-2 <_<
