Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada has commented on sales of Sleeping Dogs and draws some comparisons to Just Cause 2.
Good to hear, because Sleeping Dogs is definitely an underrated title, and one of my favourites of 2012 (yep, you heard right!).
Ditto, hope they make a sequel, i'd love to see what they can do to improve this formula
I am not so much of a fan. It's good but somethings annoy me about this game ( i haven't played too much of the game but there are the things I have noticed). The world doesn't feel lively. As you drive around the lack of pedestrians is shocking (also there aren't a lot of cars for a big city). The driving feels a bit loose and light. The free running is a nice idea and works except it needs to be a bit more fluid (or another button for the free running part). Also there is a lack of fluidity of movement in general (but i could feel this way because of recently completing AC3 and they do a remarkable job when it comes to fluidity of movement). It's these little things that are ruining my experience of the game (side note but the acting in this game is amazing)
Why is it £15 already then?
because it sold well enough to the point were they could drop the price. Quick price drops don't always mean poor sales, hell Heavenly sword was $60 for literally an entire year where i live, and that game sold like shit. Meanwhile Skyrim is like $20 now where i live, and it's still selling like crazy.
So in other words, it flopped and they hope its a slow burner.
What is up with the disagrees? What I said is the truth. When just cause 2 came out if flopped hard, luckily it had sales and ended up selling well, although at 5to10 bucks.
What you said was "your" interpretation of what you read. That SD didn't meet overly high expectations doesn't mean it flopped. Most games don't have CoD's sales figures.
