the industry is stupid.

they spend way too much on developing games

expect way too much on opening sales

expect way too much in sales in general

their expectations are too unrealistic to begin with, just look at Tomb Raider. the game sold over 3 million very quickly and that' under performing. it's the best, most, and quickest selling Tomb Raider to date. what more could they ask for???!!

TR did more in its short life than Hitman-A did in its entire life, and yet they both failed.

THANKS, Call of Duty. Thanks to you, every moron publisher wants the golden egg of sales that you bring in.

Provoking other users to respond inappropriately = Troll
Even the most positive remark can provoke inappropriate responses. Thus, we ALL troll.

all the sly games have sold about the same, with their low budget it was a success.

Sony relies on word of mouth too much. I had no idea the game was about to release a few days before it launched.


My thoughts exactly.


Exactly, Ms advertises the crap outta their exclusives....................then again when you only have a handful to advertise.......



Yet MS still has more exclusives than Sony so whats your point? Not MS fault for Sonys exclusives flopping. First vita then wonderbook, all stars and now sly.


Halo, Fable, Gears, Forza, and Alan Wake=more?


Yeah because the ps3 only has gran turismo. See i can ignore exclusives too Or are you really that stupid to believe those are the only xbox exclusives?

LOL at the fool who said MS has more exclusives than Sony. Sony probably has created more new IP's this gen alone than MS has IP's that are worth a damn in total.


Its called a fact moron learn to do some research. Oh and if sonys IPs were worth a damn they wouldnt have closed so many studios this generation and their games like All stars Wonderbook oh and Sly wouldnt sell so poorly to warant topics like this.

Class dismissed.

Of course, you forget that there's many more active IPs.
