Lollipop Chainsaw Is Grasshopper's Most Successful Title Shipping Over 700,000 Units

It's important to note that 700,000 units shipped worldwide doesn't necessarily mean units sold, but it's an impressive number none-the-less. According to developer Grasshopper's CEO, Suda 51, it's the highest number of units the company as ever shipped. (Grasshopper Manufacture, Lollipop Chainsaw, PS3, Xbox 360)

i love suda 51, but this game wasn't all that good imo, i wish Shadows of the Damned was a success so we can expect a sequel that game was amazing, but anyway, congrats to Grasshopper!

actually they are both great :)

ugh, SOTD was absolutely terrible! That's what made me skeptical about buying this game.

One of the games of the year!

I wonder if people even know this game was developed by Grasshopper.

Customer: OOh..a zombie game.

People who buy games SIMPLY BECAUSE they feature zombies, are just as brainless as the zombies themselves. I dont mind zombies in my game, but thats got ZERO bearing on WHY I would buy a game.

Can someone (rationally/intelligently) explain this "day one preorder" mentality that people have the second they find out that there will be zombies in a game?

Can you also explain then why people have a "day 1 preorder" mentality when it comes to Call of Duty / Battlefield?

I see people slating zombie games despite the fact that these same people religiously purchase the same old military FPS games every year. That's what makes no sense to me.

At least the zombie games have variety. Dead Island, Left 4 Dead, Lollipop Chainsaw, Dead Rising, Red Dead Undead Nightmare and Telltale's Walking Dead are all zombie games but they all play entirely different and are not the same copy and pasted games. The same cannot be said for all of the ridiculous amount of military FPS titles on the market.

Always nice to see a good game get its fair share in sales, now if only the Tales of series would sell well over here.

Sex plus zombies sell.

I enjoyed the game, it was a bit short, but offered some replay value. Congrats to them, in a time when companies are losing money and closing studios, it's nice to see one have some success.

Congratulations.

But it didn't sell 100000 million! It's a failure and must suck! /s

While sales are no indicator of quality, I really wish such fun and unique sales would see bigger numbers more often.

Congrats to Grasshopper and Suda 51.

i guess sex does sell.

I love Suda51's games, his games deserve much more sales and Platinum games too

Good for them.

I didn't pick it up myself, but I'm happy for their success.

Say here, I'll get it when the price is right. Couldn't justify full price for such a short game.
Venox2008  +   683d ago
actually you can get now from amazon for 15 pounds, how isn't this a fair price? :)

Grasshopper remind people of what console games should be.
NeoTribe  +   683d ago
Seemed like a game for horny little kids going through puberty. I wouldn't even want anyone to see me playin a game like that.
InTheLab  +   683d ago
Perhaps they should have cast some teenage half naked kid as the main protagonist instead of Garcia? That would have added another 100k units sold to the total...

I cannot believe 700k people paid $60 for this game /facepalm
