Assassin’s Creed II Outsells Modern Warfare 2 on PS3

By Peter Chubb - Dec 16, 2009

For weeks now, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been at the top of the PS3 game charts, but now things have changed. Assassin’s Creed II is now the best selling PS3 video game, pushing the latest CoD game to number 2. According to Digital Spy, FIFA 1O remains unchanged at number 3.

Assassin’s Creed was like Marmite, you either loved it or hated it, there never seemed to be a middle ground. The first game was well received so the second game had some big shoes to fill, and the game sales speak for themselves. Nothing has changed in the way of being able to free-run on top of buildings.

This second game is unlike the first; most gamers now love the sequel as all the faults of the first one have been addressed. Assassin’s Creed II is not as exiting as the first game, but it is much deeper, something that gamers crave. For a full review, visit Kombo.

Although Assassin’s Creed II has topped the PS3 charts, the game has no hope of matching the success of Modern Warfare 2. Never has a game been built with so much hype, and worldwide sales figures proved just that. Pre-orders were huge and has gone on to become one the biggest selling games of all time.

  • Nice

    Good to see a great game get solid sales. AC1 sold more on PS and AC2 is going down the same path, if one were to believe the NPD data. PS has a diverse older crowd which likes FPS but also had a taste for other genres like UC2… AC2 falls in line. Plus, doesn’t hurt that Amazon dropped the price bigtime. Anyway, was a day one buy for me(got the limited edition) and I got my Platinum trophy.


    cool ! i got my name from the first game when it came out,
    im out to get the 2nd one this weekend !!


  • Interesting, I never dreamed that Assassins Creed 2 would be such a success. I’m still a bit leary of buying it, just cause of the first one. Guess I ought to rent it first.
