Did Dead Space 3 bomb?

It's only been out two weeks and it's already $39.99 at Amazon and GameStop. Also Target and Best Buy will price match those.

It's easily one of the best games of the generation. 9.75/10 from gameinformer

I don't think it is bomb.

If the price was lowered 20 bucks this soon, it must not be doing so well. A game can get the best review scores ever and still bomb, when you talk about a bomb you talk about how many copies sold.

1. That review was bought and paid for. Simply impossible to refute this.

2. It probably didn't bomb, but it did suck.

They catered too much to the mainstream gamers forgetting the about the original fans that helped popularize the game. Seems to be the fad these days.

might get the game when it's 20$

It is vgchartz so take it as you will, but it seems like it is a little above where its predecessors were week one.

What a coincidence... EA doing layoffs.

Probably a sale, not a price cut. Plenty of places are still retailing it for 60.

A game bombing isn't a result of reviews. Everyone knows AAA game reviews are bought and paid for now.

It's all about sales these days.
