The funny thing is that even if TC was right and DMC4 sold badly, that wouldn't change that DmC is selling poorly.


even funnier thing is that i never said dmc4 sold badly

Heavenly Sword came bundled with PS3's too. It still sold abysmal.

NOT a good counterpoint . dmc4 4th entry of well respected franchise and coming off series high point dmc3 and 1st on new high powered systems , heavenly sword new and unproven ip

i was just wondering ... does anyone know why the 'antis' conveniently not mention that a HUGE amount of dmc4 sales came from system bundles at that time ?? just wondering how you can even compare dmc sales (which are doing good) to a game that was bundled with new systems


Because that was a Japan exclusive bundle and while it may have had a positive effect on Japanese sales, it didn't do anything to influence for the US/EU regions (For which the EU release DMC4 still sold heaps more of)?

Yes, we were talking about Japans numbers, but sales for the UK version also dropped a lot in its second week. We don't have any US numbers yet, they won't be out until later this week or next week.

We also don't have any exact UK numbers, only that it sold 1/3 of what DMC 4 did.

Wasn't the ps3 slim released shortly after the bundle came out? The xbox community isn't that strong either. I don't think that bundles really affected sales that much. DMC3 sold 1mill+ on ps2,New gen games are advertised more. The bundles probably didn't boost sales that much ; something like 100k -300k units. And don't forget that some cheap console Dbags sell the games that are included in the bundle.
