Sony has been dealt quite a blow in the battle of the consoles. Little Big Planet, widely considered to be Sony’s flagship holiday title along with Resistance 2, has posted sales well behind Microsoft’s Gears of War 2. GeOW 2 debuted at #1 in the UK charts, while LBP only came in #4.
This is quite a disappointment to Sony and PS3 fans, especially considering that LBP had a couple days head start on GeOW2. Considering all the marketing Sony has done to try and push LBP as a major game for children and adults alike, it would seem that it is falling short of sales expectations.
However, the holiday season has just begun, and hopefully by the end of it LBP will overcome its initial slow sales and move a number of PS3 consoles.
