Deserves to be way higher, best new IP of the year

XabiDaChosenOne2286d ago

The year isn't over yet. *looks at PSASBR

*looks at Dishonored.

Also, can you really consider Battle Royale a new IP the same way games like Doshonored or Sleeping Dogs are?

vividi2286d ago (Edited 2286d ago )

I am waiting for both!!

yesmynameissumo2286d ago

Of course PS Battle Royale is a new IP. That's like saying Sleeping Dogs isn't because of GTA or SR and Dishonored isn't because of Thief.

strange19862286d ago


I'm not saying it's not as much of a new IP because it's so similar to Smash Bros. I'm referring to the fact that it contains nothing but characters from existing IP's.

Double post...d'oh!

Just 172K? No wonder Activision dropped it. Awesome game though, no selling potential, however.

It's not a new ip. It's the sequel to True Crime:New York City. They had to change the name because of licensing issues when Activision dropped it.

GTRrocker6662286d ago

No it was an original IP named black lotus that activition forced them to make a true cri.e game. Then they somd it off because they thought it wouldnt sell and changed the name a 3rd time.

8BitSoul2286d ago

Sleeping Dogs is technically not a new IP. It was called True Crime: Hong Kong, and was meant to be the third game in the True Crime series, right up until Activision decided to drop the project. Once it was acquired by Square Enix, they changed the name to Sleeping Dogs. Not that it really matters, as the game is awesome either way! :3

GTRrocker6662286d ago

It was meant to be a new IP called Black Lotus

ForRealz172286d ago (Edited 2286d ago )

It was a new IP called Black Lotus but Activision slapped the True Crime for brand recognition. Devs have said do themselves on many ocassions.

Edit - Beaten to the punch.

Rubberlegs2286d ago (Edited 2286d ago )

It actually was never a True Crimes game to begin with. It did start out as new IP until Activision picked it up and titled it as a new True Crimes. Once they canned it and Square Enix saved it they had to change the name.

Yeah Black Lotus, I remember about reading about in an interview. They had 90% of the game done before Activision canned it.

It's kind of low for US, but overall the game has sold over 600k worldwide and should be at 1 million by the end of the month.

Also the game hasn't been released in Japan and won't be until the end of the month. FInally holiday shopping is right around the corner, and this game isn't necessarily a Day 1 buy for most people, but on Black Friday it should be on sale for $30 or less, so there's a chance it can still put up more sales then.

Awesome_Gamer2285d ago

Both this and Darksiders 2 deserved to sell even more imo, great games!

Just bought my copy yesterday. Amazing game!!! Some funny moments and great action.

Qrphe2286d ago

So I guess neither United Front nor Vigil cut close to being even?

Simco8762286d ago

It's a great game, but can't cut it with the other open world games. Just not enough to do.

Game boils down to cop missions and street races. Item collection is a cheap way to add replay value.
