Do you actually have a source for this?

I don't remember the site, but it was posted on the PS3 GameFaqs boards with a link to their vague yet teasing statement.

You act as if only NPD has those numbers, and with numbers so ridiculously small, I actually wouldn't doubt that. Sony has the REAL numbers, and has since pre-orders were available. If the game wasn't profitable and was just a waste of time, they wouldn't have announced 2 characters and a new stage, much less for free. They also wouldn't have teased new DLC reveals for VGA. They would simply abandon the game before it costs them too much.


another naive post.

what Sony cares about is their sales to retailers like Gamestop or Bestbuy a.k.a. shipped numbers. if Gamestop placed an order of 500k units of All-Stars, then Sony has already sold 500k and now it's up to Gamestop to sell those 500k for themselves, not for Sony. do you even know how this works? whether or not Gamestop sells 80k doesn't concern Sony, because Sony has already made a sale of 500k to Gamestop. they already got Gamestop's money. what you're paying is going towards Gamestop, not Sony.

of course it would be better if Gamestop sells everybit of that 500k and orders more copies from Sony, but once Sony sold that initial order, they already thought (as they should) that they sold enough units.

I'm confused, when did everyone become expert sales analysts?

They didn't. Everyone is just talking out of their asses in an attempt to sound smart.

You really don't pay attention to anything, do you?

They shipped lots and lots of copies of TM and Resistance 3. However, a week in, Sony stopped support as it would end up costing more money than it would make. Sure, they got paid for their shipped copies, but they also look at activity and store sales to determine business wise if it would be wise to invest more money into the game.

This is what "smart sounds like? Someone repeating ROFL every post?

That's upsetting.

Dude, stop posting. Replying to him, makes it seem you actually care about his views.

Yes, Sony is the Manufacturer, and Gamestop is the retailer. Except in this case the manufacturer has the power unlike in some cases in which the retailer is Walmart.

So its entirely possible Gamestop sold 88K copies but Sony sold 300k.
