LuminescentRule is a troll. Look at his/her rating for Super Mario Galaxy, for shame...


And we're supposed to believe that a guy who downvotes games on "rival" systems is a full-grown adult with a high-paying job?


Does it bother that I make a fair bit of money?


It's just hard to believe you've reached the age of maturity.


So, I should stop posting about games when I reach a certain age?

Well, since UK sales mean absolutely nothing...I'll just leave this here.

http://www.vgchartz.com/weekly/41238/USA/

Top 20 in the first week...kinda funny considering the titles it was up against.
This also doesn't include digital sales or pre-orders, as well as the eventual launch in Japan.

Wonder why this guy is so obsessed...must be pretty damn jealous that a new IP is doing better than most would with the limited advertising and funding.


Kinda crazy that games that came out more than a year ago sold more than this game. Also, keep in mind that the weekly sales will only be going down from here so I would say that it'll sell even less than TM.

No, you should stop doing fanboyish things like downvoting games on consoles you perceive as "enemies."

If you actually look at what games that came out more than a year ago outsold (as well as the new established series that outsold)...and then looked at the recent promotions and console price drops...it really isn't surprising at all.

You seem to not know how economics work or pricing strategies. All you focus on is the one specific game and it's performance and completely ignore the rest of the games and WHY they are selling how they are selling.

If you're going to try to argue sales and reasons, at least know what you are talking about first.

Lumi should write a book called "How to become disliked and irrelevant in the shortest time possible."


Probably wouldn't even break the top 40 though.


And we would be here saying his book flop.

Want examples of games that came out more recently? Well:

You're forgetting that over that there's also much more consumers than the average week. On top of that, you're assuming that games from established franchises are supposed to keep selling forever. Not to mention that this game was cheaper than most new releases and received a massive marketing push. There is absolutely no excuse for this game to bomb - except for the fact that the game itself is average.

Poor, poor DC attempt. Even Sony couldn't bring themselves to say that they are happy with the sales of this game.
