Dead Space 3 US sales hit 605,000 | Gamespot

Gamespot: "Dead Space 3, which launched February 4, sold 605,000 units in the United States during February, according to NPD data provided to GameSpot today. The action-horror title was the best-selling game in the US during the month, knocking Call of Duty: Black Ops II from the top spot for the first time since launch." (Dead Space 3, EA, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

For a Dead Space game, I don't think that this is good. Hopefully EA learns to listen to their fans after this and SimCity.

That's 1 month. Dead space lifetime sales are what, 2 million for each iteration? That's pretty good for one month.

DS3 needed to sell about 5 million units to be profitable for EA. I doubt it'll get there. A testament to EA's destruction of a potentially classic franchise.

I just find it hilarious how people complain about the destruction of "a potentially classic franchise" just because the game didn't sell 5 million copies, when neither DS1 nor 2 sold anything close to that amount.

@humbleopinion
Those people complaining of said destruction aren't using an arbitrary rationality like "X game must sell this much because I said so;" they're basing it off the unfair sales expectations EA themselves put forth for this threequel.

dead space 3 was a slight dissapointment in my eyes.
MysticStrummer  +   798d ago
That;s reasonable. Unfortunately many on here like to exaggerate, screaming about a game being completely ruined because of one thing or another. DS3 isn't as good as the first two games in the series, but it's still an above average game and the series is still one of the best of all time.

The only issue I have with Dead Space 3 is the nonsensical story. Other than that the game itself was good enough.

Looks like those rumors about Dead Space 4 being cancelled are little more credible now.
Alos88  +   798d ago
If so, only because some idiot at EA decided it needed to hit 5 million sales to be profitable (which is bullshit, it most likely didn't need to hit half that to make a profit).

I actually really loved the game! I mean not the best (that coveted spot goes to the first)but still a good game. Hope they make another... Just don't make it online only.
