Lollipop Chainsaw is Suda51′s biggest seller. Does this Enforce the notion “Sex Sells Best”?

At the Lollipop Chainsaw Summer Appreciation event, CEO Yoshimi Yasuda states the figures of how well Suda's latest outing did in terms of games shipped internationally.
Could this be due to the heavy sexualization of the lead character Juliet Starling?

If I'm not mistaken it's also their first game on PS3 and Xbox 360 not a port of a Wii game that had a lot of advertising unlike Shadows of the Dead.

Oh wow just noticed I subconsciously wrote Shadows of the Dead instead of Shadows of the Damned.

Sex might sell, but the game was actually quite fun, even though it was on the short side. I like having a good time when playing a game, and I did with Lollipop Chainsaw.

No doubt sex sells. Gaming demograph is makes.
It's a no brainer. But Suda didn't just give us a over sexualized chractiture...Juliette was a campy fun strong female lead. If we have to take a little of column a to get gamers to see column b....I'm down with that.

But it also contextual. The new tomb raider needs a whole different approach, which looks like they are doing.

Now I just want Juliette in a fighter. Lol

(fighters by far are the worst for over sexing females. Often the story is tacked on....adding no meaningful reeasoning behind chracters designs and attitudes.)

it just sad the game sold better than Killer 7, NMH and Shadows of the Damned these game deserve much better and were much better than Lollipop Chainsaw.

all Suda's games deserve lots of more sales

That's funny because NMH was the only Suda51 game to date that sold well enough to get a sequel. Who knows if LC will get one?

inreresting question,but I think it's gameplay that people were interested in.. I'm too, Suda's games may not have super mechanics, but I love stories, characters, enemies, boses and fun factor that not many devs can achieve for me like suda & platinum games , I just hope that more and more people would become PG & Grasshopers fans, maybe some will? ;)
