IGN: PlayStation All-Stars Sales "are Right on Target", Sony says
aperfectorestes posted...I get a good laugh out of watching Lumie... nothing better to do than actively message board post about a game he claims to not like but has obviously played a lot of.
Yet he still hangs out here lol
Let's say I believe that drivel... it only makes it more sad.
Money obvious doesn't buy happiness haha
LIGHTNING FOR PSASBR!

Elektra for UMvC 3 and Pac man for SSBWIIU

2. Budget has everything to do with determining success. Revenue - Cost = Profit. Profit determines success. With that said, your examples couldn't have been worse.
First of all, polyphony has around 150 people on it's team where superbot only has around 50. That makes their team a third of the size. Secondly GT5 is the second most expensive game to have been developed in the history of all time. Both GT5 and TLG were in development for much longer than PSASBR. Therefore, these games need to sell a lot more to be profitable, whereas PSASBR doesn't. Yes Demon's Souls was an unexpected success, but that doesn't somehow make other games less successful. Again success is all about profits.
3. No, because games with bigger marketing budgets overshadow it.
4. You're assuming that every person that buys a game follows it from the day it gets announced and posts on message boards about it. Simply not true. Anyway delays affect marketing plans and expected competition so of course it affects projections.
5. Because it's an established IP and a sequel with a much higher marketing budget and is in a genre with a significantly higher commercial appeal, as well as being a multiplatform game.
Systemwars.com has much more intelligent people than GameFaqs. Post there.
