People shouldn't be surprised by the sales.

VGchartz is not an accurate source. I and others told you all to wait for more reliable numbers instead of assuming they were real. Honestly, I was kind of expecting this because the VG numbers seemed way too high.

Granted the guy posting NPD numbers on Neogaf could also be making them up but that's unlikely because I'm fairly certain it's the same guy who does it every month or so. Also what agenda could he possibly have to lie specifically only about All Stars if he's been largely accurate in the past?

I'm not saying he's 100% accurate but given his history, he's certainly a more reliable source than VGchartz. Of course, we have to account for digital sales as well.

Anyway this game always had an uphill battle to climb:

1. Most hightly requested characters missing.
2. Almost zero advertising.
3. Super battle system turning off countless people that don't understand it.

Just a few reasons but there are likely more.

I'm not. New ideas in general seem to turn people away now.

Besides, if Sony is satisfied I can rest easy about the fate of the game.

There's no proof that Sony is satisfied.

Obviously a company like Sony isn't going to admit they are dissatisfied even if they are. Especially for a game that just came out, that'll just kill sales further.

They'll just choose careful praising like "sales are what we expected" so even if they are very low they'll hope people will just assume it's good enough for Sony.

Also you have to remember Sony didn't just come out and say it. They only said it after IGN asked them after the poor UK sales, they had no choice but to respond.

Sp satisfied might be the wrong word. Let me replace that with expected.

I don't see why sales are being brought up constantly, especially when we don;t have any definite info, there is so much more interesting things we could discuss, like match ups, combos, tricks etc.

You're still missing the point.

How can anyone ever prove Sony is lying about that? They can't.
For all we know this game is selling well below expectations.

You do realize they only said that after IGN specifically asked them after the low UK sales? They had to comment. If they didn't it would have made the game look worse.

I made a detailed Spike discussion thread.
It died in like 5 minutes after maybe 1 response.
Not many people care about those things here.

Meh, we've seen SO many new IPs come into this gen and die this gen. So many great IPs too, gamers just don't want to risk paying money for something new. Which is why all we get is sequel after sequel of CoD, Assassins Creed ect.

Because people hate on the game and others rush to defend. The magic of forum drama
