That is good
Yeah. DayZ probably did a lot to boost the visibility of Arma games in general which hopefully introduced the main game to a lot of new players.
Yup, I always knew about ARMA and then DayZ got popular and always wanted to play it. Then this came out and I watch videos on it and fell in love with the simulation aspect of the game (it's very different from Call of Duty or Battlefield - your typical modern shooters). So far it's an awesome game with an awesome developer and community behind it.
The game is absolutely AMAZING for an Alpha I bought the 10 copies for my family & friends and we're having a blast on my private server! Bohemia's sales strategy is a smart one, no gimmicks. They just allow their community to help out the development of the game! There are already tons of mods and addons for the Alpha, it's mind boggling! The ArmA series is lucky enough to have one of the best communities to deal with on the internet. Most people you run into are very mature & overall positive. It's very refreshing!
1500 users isn't a ton, if that is what the graph is showing.
12500 is the right number of ArmA 3 ;)
Sigh, just got back from a 4 hour stop class, brain needs to re adjust hahaha.
I don't know what that chart is! maybe it's Alpha Users. Arma 2 sales are in the millions. Arma 3 Alpha seems to be doing well, servers are PACKED and it's Number 1 on Steam! Arma is just getting more and more popular, YES Day Z helped but even without DayZ Takistan Life, Chernarus Life are still great mods plus Arma just offers realistic combat in a open world something no other game is doing with such realism.
I quite enjoy the Beta so far, very fun. Too bad my video card burned out, hopefully not because I was playing ArmA3 haha, although it is very likely as the game is pretty demanding on the hard-wear.
Friend gave it to me on steam, awesome game hopefully PS4 Release in the future.
No way.. a console release for a game like this would be terrible.. it wouldn't even be the same. This game is a sandbox with tons of mods and community driven content. Sony and Microsoft would have none of that unfortunately as it is their platform and they have the final word. This is one of the great things about the PC platform in my opinion - I do game on and enjoy every platform, so this isn't one of those biased "PC Elitist" comments.
Riiight of course it isn't.
Bohemia is listed as ps4 developer so it seems DayZ will be released for PS4.
It simply won't work on consoles, the game is a nitch game on PC, console population would hate something so complex and slow pace. Not even kidding here.
I couldn't get into a decent mp match, but the showcase missions are very fun!
I would say a lot of the alpha's popularity can be attributed to Day-Z. I never would have looked at Arma 3 twice before playing Day-Z and now every time I see it on Steam I think about buying it.
You should buy it if a military simulation sandbox game sounds interesting. I don't think you would regret it. This is definitely not your Call of Duty or Battlefield game though.
Yeah I had no interest in Day Z, and this alpha is my first experience with ARMA. Overall I came away very impressed. It's more like Operation Flashpoint: Red River than Battlefield.
Didn't you hear? PC gaming is dying.
Top game on steam is Dota 2 =P Don't know bout origin etc =P
Dota 2 Peaked 326k players last Sunday, beat Skyrim on release(around 300k).
come to the console world its ok alot other pc dev did it
yeh Crysis went to console and look how CRAPPY Crysis 2 and 3 are. Crysis 1 PC is still Crytek's best seller. Console = where great PC Games go to die!
yeah but pc games dont sell as much as consoles do.and crysis 1 is one of the best selling shooters on pc but not the best seller on pc and witcher 3 well sell more on consoles then on pc just like crysis 2 and 3
