Kaboobi;22563 said:Rock Band will be the better game by far, but I know that GH3 will sell far far far more copies initially than RB, but over time the sales will even out as it gains those "word of mouth" sales much like GH did.
Terranova;22724 said:I would say the only reason GH III could sell more at the start would be those that have a PS2 only and so would get the game for that.. those with a 360 or PS3 i would be willing to bet they would go with rock band a lot more than GH III.. sites such as Gamespot already have Rock band ahead of GH III in which one they prefer whether this will change when the full games are released is another matter but i would say Rock band would come out on top.
PsycoCheerio;22736 said:I think one thing Activision has going for it is the early release date being end of October...depends on the gap between RB and GHIII i think will determine what people go for. Everyone is very impatient.GH: 80s was surprisingly good, granted i played in on Frets On Fire because i wasn't crazy enough to go spend $40 on 30 songs that only about 1/3 were great.
Xzyliac;22610 said:Profit. Madden is such a quick burst of success whereas GH has been in the top 10 ALL YEAR!
IOIHUMMERIOI;22618 said:Madden is so overrated. It's the same thing, every year, with a few gimmicks and graphical tweaks here an there. This coming from a HUGE Madden fan when it actually meant something.

Phrank-E;23099 said:It's also still completely up in the air as to whether or not GH3 will even feel like GH. It might not. Don't see exactly how it woulda been too difficult to reverse engineer the code and come up with something that feels the same, But ya never know. I cringed the first time I saw battle mode and that giant whammy popped up on screen and the screen shook. Absolutly blasphemous.
Kaboobi;23115 said:Yes, but even if it is completely awful, it will sell millions on name recognition alone.
Phrank-E;23146 said:True... At the beginning. But word of mouth works both ways.. "OMG this is the best game ever,You should come check it out!" easily can turn into "Holy Crap! They totally ruined what was a good thing.. Don't even bother with it"Case in point Twisted Metal 2 to Twisted Metal 3.....
