1. still a flop. #38 in the UK charts is a flop, especially if it's day 1.


This is just a ridiculously stupid post.

It's PS All-Stars sales of ONE day vs the sales of games for one MONTH.


*facepalm*


Yeah facepalm lol because you just made the dumbest post in this topic.

That is a difficult feat. Congratulations!



That UK chart is a weekly chart which took in sales for the 3rd week of November (last week).


which meant, 37 games sold more in the UK than All-Stars did, during that week.

which brings me to my next point, even a game like Dishonored (released almost two months ago) outsold All-Stars last week in the UK. a game like Mario and Sonic Olympics which is a YEAR OLDER, outsold All-Stars. not only that, but that game was in #24, which is 14 places higher than All-Stars.



so who made the dumbest post now?

Why does everyone care about the UK charts?

It's a smaller market. Wait for the rest of Europe, America, Asia Pacific first.

Besides, everyone knows the UK is 360 country. ;O


huh. and the US isn't a 360 country? ROFL.


also, lol at Asia Pacific. this game would probably not even register in the radar there.

Lol umm yeah it is.

*Tap my fist on your head* Earth to Rumba. Did I say it's not? It goes without saying.

For Asia Pacific I mainly meant just Japan, Australia though there is Korea, Singapore and other smaller markets obviously.

"Why do you fail to understand that those charts (and the reason it is 38) were numbers of units sold in 1 day compared to the other games on that list that were released earlier in the week?"



First of at all, it's two days. Second of all, most of a game's sales comes within its first day of release (compared to the rest of the six days in a week). Lastly, most of the other games also came out Friday. I'm still confused as to why I'm even discussing this. We're talking about a high profile first party Sony title bombing in its launch week, a game I've been waiting for since its reveal, and you're happy with the fact that it debuted 38th!? Where's your expectations? And why even defend it? I want this game to sell and hopefully it will over time, but this is a horrible debut.

Uhm, these are weekly sales, not monthly sales. The game had a really bad debut. Only delusional fanboys would think otherwise. I will just come back here next week when the game doesn't perform any better in the UK chart.

So, basically, anyone who uses common sense is a delusional fanboy?

Someone's delusional around here, THAT'S for sure.

Common sense? He was wrong on two accounts: 1) the game was out for two days, not one, during the tracking period. 2) UK charts are WEEKLY, not monthly sales.

Is it really weekly? Then I guess we both made dumb posts :D

Except mine can simply be blamed on misinformation (thinking it was monthly instead of weekly) than making an outrageous claim like it being a flop when the rest of the games in that list have 7 times as much time to sell.

No matter what way it is spinned, we both know it's a dumb comparison. Next week's chart will be MUCH more accurate, even if you and Lum are right and it does flop
