So after my recent truth topic that said point blank why there won't be Conduit 3. Why do some of you still hold out hope?

The fact is I don't "believe" it will come out. All we can do is wait, not belief just hope.

Yet you are still believing when you hold out hope.

They made two already nether of witch did very good apparently (otherwise C2 would have had better sales) so what would stop them from just gambling on a third?

The conduit sold well Conduit 2 sold poorly so the bad sales number of Conduit 2 would prevent Conduit 3. Refer to this

“That’s a misnomer in our industry. By and large people look at it and they say, if it’s not a million unit seller it’s a flop. That’s preposterous. If I make this bottle of Coke, and let’s say there’s 10 pence of materials here – coloured water, sugar and a glass bottle – if I sell this for a pound, I’ve just made money. Whatever the product is, if it costs you less to make than you end up making off the thing, you make profit. As long as the profit margin is strong enough, then you get enough of a return and you can make another. The biggest misconception of consumers of the industry is that million-unit benchmark. When you really look at the number of games a year that sell over a million units, it’s almost none of them. If that really were the minimum bar for a success, the game industry would be gone in under a year. There are thousands of games released that don’t sell a million units. There are like 10 games a year that sell over a million units. But if you can sell a few hundred thousand copies – 300, 400 thousand copies, which is in the range that we did – we made money off that. We did well. Although it was a considerable budget for a Wii title, it was not the kind of budget a Gears of War had. If we’d spent the Gears of War money, then we probably wouldn’t be having this discussion now. We’d be back working on something else. We’d always like to make money. Everyone would. But if we sold the exact same number of units as we sold with Conduit 1, we’d be high-fiving each other. But I think we’ll do better.” – High Voltage’s Eric Nofsinger

He is saying if Conduit 2 sold as well as The conduit they would keep making Conduit. Since it did not they have to work on other games.

This is the sales numbers Conduit 2 is at.

What I don't get is, If Tcon was so good with sales why would C2 be so bad? The olny reason was cuz they didn't like the playstyle. Maybe the multiplyer? (witch was a lot better in C2)

The Conduit multiplayer was over run with cheaters early on. The single play in Conduit 2 was way different from The Conduit so people did not give Conduit 2 a chance. That is why Conduit 2 sales suffered.
