Homefront Beats Crysis 2 In Sales

That game Homefront. It simply won’t die. Doesn’t matter how many times critics knock the Kaos Studios-developed shooter, it keeps on placing high on game sales charts across the west. Even the mighty Crysis 2 from Crytek couldn’t kick Homefront down, and taking a closer peek at the aforementioned two, we realize Homefront’s doing much better, and that’s while being one of the lowest scoring shooters this generation.

Via VG Chartz and per ms-xboxworld, the Xbox 360 version of Crysis 2 has sold 692,037 units, averaging at around 60,000 per week. Compared to Homefront that has sold 1,046,013 after 5 weeks of chart data.

On PS3, Homefront has sold 489,632 units and Crysis 2 coming in close at 452,503 units.

It’s amazing, isn’t it? One game becomes a hit amongst critics but sells less, while the other low-scoring title rakes in way more money than its rival.

    It’s quite simple really: crysis 2 didn’t live up to the hype. Sales don’t define a game but they were way too cocky.

    over here the price of Homefront dropped to £29.99 while crysis 2 was £41.95

    This happened on the launch day of Crysis 2 ……….so no mystery really.

    reason why is simple.
    homefront actually has allot of features built just for PCs so instead of alienating PC gamers THQ actually enbrased them so PC gamers are rewarding them.
    EA and crytek on the other hand, well, 2 letters.
    DX9!

    Agree with you all. But ExclusivesMostly is right… Crytek bragged way too much.
