... It only sold 200,000 copies?

19 replies 542 views Edited Dec 14, 2012

I... I don't understand... this game is awesome. It's got some of the best characters of the past decade... and the live action trailer

got around 5,000,000 hits... I figured that'd sell... and I actually saw a lot of commercials, which is rare for sony. What happened? and sony claimed this was on par with what they were hoping for it to sell?...

Expect/hope for a spike in sales in late December and throughout January.

Come ooooon Christmas Miracle.

Is 200k bad? Sounds good for a third party studios first game.

Even VGChartz says its closer to 300k. That's without digital and preorder. Its probably around 500k at this point in total sales. THen we have the Japanese launch,

There was very poor marketing in general. I'm surprised you said you saw a lot of commercials because most people have seen none and i know i personally have seen nothing other than a few banners and ads on a few gaming sites and the live action trailer which i didn't think sold the game very well. Keep in mind also that it came out amongst several high caliber titles, such as Black Ops 2, Assassin's Creed 3 and Hitman Absolution, and wasn't very well recieved critically. It all adds up.

I'm almost positive that this won't sell in Japan. I don't think Big Daddy, Drak, Ratchet, Jak ...etc are as popular in Japan. Remember, the Japanese are more into RPG's and what not.
