^not meeting expectations =/= terrible even if it still sold millions.
the long-awaited Smash Bros. for the Playstation brand selling less than Resistance 3 = now that's terrible.
Maybe but again it matters budget and selling millions doesn't matter if the budget for something was in the millions. Why do you think EA had layoffs? Besides your helping my argument that FPS are the games that dominate which is also a point I was making so good job. --- true megaman fan and CFE Ingrid fan
Not for nothing, but I'm looking through the thread, and I'm finding absolutely no information on anything besides someone claiming 8k sales for the vita, and then stating (in a horribly stupid way) that the PS3 sales are greater than the Vita sales by 10. There's literally no numbers anywhere that I can find. Can someone help me dig them out? I'm running low on battery here...
No one at Neogaf is allowed to directly post NPD numbers so they kinda have to improvise. We know that Vita + PS3 version of All Star sold less than 88k.
What I'm trying to figure out is where these NPD numbers are coming from. They're in very stark contrast to everything we've already heard, being less than 45% of the initial numbers we were getting in. That's not something I can wrap my head around, and even less so when some random guy says it on an Internet forum with zero proof. *shrugs*
It's not a random guy. It's a guy that has access to NPD numbers. NPD numbers are released by the NPD group. Just google it.
People need to stop panicking. This games sales will pick up soon. Sony needs a advertising lesson because they cannot advertise well at all. Look at this game and Resistance 3
This. Aside from the Robot Chicken commercial, which I've seen about twice, the only media they show about this game is the title and about 6 seconds of The All-Star. Not even any gameplay. --- Not changing sig until Gamefreak brings back R/S/E Secret Bases ~ 2/20/11
So the vita and ps3 version combined sold almost 100k copies in North America alone in 4 days retail only is this correct? --- Currently playing:Resident Evil 6, Dead or Alive 5, Tokyo Jungle, Dishonored, One Piece Pirate Warriors, Retro City Rampage, Borderlands 2
The next Smash Bros is going to outsell All-Stars Battle Royale in preorders sold on the announcement day alone. Goddamn. --- You know who's sexy? Black Turtle, the 2010 Games Contest Guru Winner, that's who!
