it might very well be that SuperBot was on-contract to do 2 games (maybe even 3) with Sony.

I would take those numbers with a grain of salt. VGchart had proven that they don't take many factors
into consideration with the numbers. I recall they were off by over a million sales when the official God of War 3 sales were released from Sony.

As long as the game profited, sales are fine.

 

VGchartz doesn't count digital sales. 


 Well, .34 million is 340,000, times 60 is is a ton of cash, the devs see only half that cash if their lucky, but it's still a lot, still too hard to say if it's been profitable, but I assume it has.

 

Then again it has only been a couple months, in a year or two we'll see the "grand total" and it only needs about 3 times as much as it has now to meet with some other popular fighter sales. So who knows, after digital sales/Vita it may be close to that mark already, and thus doing fine. It's hard to lock down all the circumstances, all we know for sure is that Sony says says are 'on the mark' and we have to assuem that's a good thing.

The link you provided is just the physical PS3 copies. Also according to vgchartz, the game has sold 110,000 physical Vita copies as well. That adds up to a total of 450,000 so far, not including any digital sales and not including Japan, with the last two weeks being the best weeks of sales since release. That's not entirely bad in my opinion seeing as it's impossible to know the digital sales numbers (even though many expect them to be pretty high)

I don't think it was confirmed they were working on a sequel, but this showed up...

It's a shame this game didn't sell as good as it could have..
I mean , its "the Playstation game 2012" , it seriously should have sold somewhat better.
Smash Bros. Brawl sold like , I don't know , 1 million or so the first 2 weeks in japan.. lol
(not trying to compare this game to Smash , just saying this becouse of them both being console exclusive Brawlers)
A big factor is probably the roster. I mean , I like the roster we have , but come on guys , we all expected certain characters to be in.
I know 2 friends of mine who would have bought the game if it had Crash..
(btw , **bleep** Activision , I hate these **bleep**ers)

Even if that were true, that might not mean much. Eat Sleep Play was supposed to have a 3-game deal with Sony, and look how that turned out...

Sales were good enough for Superbot to hire more people...
