Excellent news, and well deserved. Sleeping Dogs is an excellent title and I encourage anyone who hasn't played it yet to do so.

1.5 million is great....
for a new ip exclusive or multiplat

this along with majority praise from critics should warrant a sequel
Gamesgbkiller  +   529d ago

But you can see that - sort of -

Community Manager on Sleeping Dogs forums said that SE is very excited with current sales numbers.

Was thoroughly impressed with how polished Sleeping Dogs was. From the story to the hand-to-hand combat to the shooting to the side missions. It's all enjoyable. Any criticism levelled at it for being a "GTA clone" is totally unwarranted.

A great game that deserves a bigger base of fans.

1.5 million x $60.

That's a lot of money.
pandehz  +   529d ago
They never get $60 from each purchase.

More like half of that.

They will get close to full from a digital sale from their own site and a lil less from steam but close. From any retail sale they wont make too much from a purchase.

Reason why most publishers now have digital versions of their games up for sale on portals like Steam, Origin and UbiStore
Hufandpuf  +   529d ago
That is true.

But what if all of those copies shipped to retail stores actually got sold? You'd be set for life LOL. And studios like this go bankrupt over videogames!?

Supposedly, that's a bad number. Darksiders 2 sold about the same and its considered a flop. Its OK. Gamers are holding back on buying excellent titles. Companies will go out of business and when all that's left is COD and the gaming industry collapses (like it did before) we'll all wonder.....why?!
labaronx  +   529d ago
1.5 million is bad sales numbers.....
how and why???
Venox2008  +   529d ago
it depends how much money were put in a project
amaguli  +   529d ago
THQ considers Darksiders II a flop because they had so much riding on it. If they were not on the verge of bankruptcy, I bet they would have been celebrating the numbers.

Suck on that, Activision!!
CanadianTurtle  +   529d ago
It hasn't even been a year since it came out, 1.5m is really good.
x800  +   529d ago
well deserved.
Der_Kommandant  +   529d ago
Ouch to Activision
amaguli  +   529d ago
Sleeping Dogs is definitely the sleeper hit of the year.

Glad SE and United Front Games proved Acti wrong.

I'm really enjoying this game and hopefully there will be a even better sequel to someday...
