One might assume that Assassin's Creed III: Liberation would be a huge hit for Sony's new portable, but there may be multiple reasons to worry.
Right now, I don't know how well the game will sell. All I know is I will be buying one. If Ubisoft and Sony markets the game right, they will add something about the Vita version to every AC3 commercial. If they (people, customers) are a fan of the series and have a Vita, there is a chance they will be picking up one. Also, if you are looking into getting a Vita, the white one is the best one to go with and it comes with AC3L.
No need to be concerned about sales figures. I for want can not play them nor enjoy them. Its not money in my pockets. For a niche gamer like me, what matters is that the game is made & playable. I play native Japanese & English games from the million sellers to the obscure games no one heard of. It was just playing games, cheats , tips & tricks. I can have fun with a game no matter what. It was perfect euphoria for until these "sales figures" crap this generation came up and ruined the fun. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Sales men are annoying.
They are advertising the Vita version in the UK, especially on DAVE.
I will be buying this game for my vita. I actually saw the AC vita bundle go up to like number 70 in the amazon top 100 selling videogame items and a vita hasnt been in there for months so I think its at least somewhat helping to sell vitas.
Ac will sell vitas, just as it will sell wiiU's. it really doesn't matter anyway the vita will sell when they drop the price. That will happen next year. All these weak articles, haters must miss trolling the 3ds before their price drop.
I could honestly care less how it sells. However it sells will not reflect on the game itself, but on the release date and competition that it faces. I'm sure it will be a great game regardless of whether or not it sells.
Everything I've seen makes the game look badass. But then, I'm one of those rare gamers that cares more about how good a game is than how many copies it sells.
What is the expectations from Sony/Ubisoft?
I hope it sells at least 0.5 mil. Knowing that Uncharted Golden Abyss sold 0.74 mil retail copies I think it's a possible number.
Its going to fly high with me.. More content & missions for owning both PS versions is a plus that i wont be missing out on.. Matter of fact, im getting the PS3 collection when it comes out so i can have em all.. I only got to rent AC 1 & 2 so $40 for the collection isnt a bad deal for me... If it sells well, it will only ensure that more games like it will come.. Possibly a sequel with Aveline to continue her quests.. It really sucks that this, NFS, & Ragnarok Odyssey all drop the same day.. Its going to make sales a bit rocky for all 3.. I know im going to Target & doing the buy 2 get 1 free for all of em.. $80 for 3 games is a great deal i wont pass on.. Its virtually like getting 3 new PS3 games for a fraction of the cost
I actually feel bad for the people who love this series and who will not be enjoying this adventure. It's like having a Star Wars film available only on Beta Max and millions will not see it. It sucks hard. I think this game will sell OK. I think it's safe to assume that at launch, at least 1 million people will buy it and play it. Going into next year hopefully it has sold about 3 million before March. I think it may, considering there will be a wave of new Vita owners post holidays. Either way this game looks pretty awesome.
Im buying Liberation on drop day and getting AC3 later when the obvious price drop comes.
read my mind. I will be doing the same.
