Lack of advertising hurt it the most unfortunatly, there was only one advert actually rolling on TV here in the UK - the spoof live action one, which really isn't enough. The beta did a good job, but it's a shame they didn't/couldn't push it. Far Cry 3 has adverts rolling all day here in the UK, as does Black Ops 2, AC3 and surprisingly Black Ops Declassified - which funnily enough, beat PSABR in sales on the charts these past two weeks.

@S-o-h-a-i-l You'd be surprised how many "gamers" only play maybe 1 type of game or just one single game series like COD, the sheep will never expand gaming genres to try new things :L

I know what crowd you are referring to - Fifa falls under the same category. I like Call of Duty, which surprises most people lol, but the reason it gets criticised is exactly the reason I buy the yearly entry's - not much changes. New maps & new guns is essentially it, but I enjoy the game on an occasional basis, the mechanics are solid in my opinion, which is why I buy into it.

I will never get why people play sports video games... I'd rather play sports in real life and with guns in games.. rather than the other way around.

Weird. I find the football/basketball games the most baring and banal waste of time... not sure how people enjoy them.

Wait, that was actually ON TV?! I've only seen it online, and has never seemingly materialised on TV where I am.

I make PS All-Stars History videos, yo!

I've only seen it twice or so, so I wouldn't say it's being WIDELY marketed, but I'm sure it must've gotten a fair amount of reruns considering I don't watch too much TV.

Gamers which I hate calling them that, extremely lack taste in games. All this doesn't really surprise me.
