Serious question:

Is 1mil users a decent number for an MMO that's out for three platforms?

I'm not sure if this is just spin or if those are actually good numbers and people are getting excited for the game.

Edit: After researching a little, it seems that even today, 1mil is still pretty nice. Thought the game would fail. Good for them.

Depends on how you look at it. Homefront was not very good and it still sold 2+ million.

"successful TV debut" my arse

It has nothing to so with the game being fun! No! It is because the show is successful. No I didn't read the article, the headline was enough for me.

Heisenburger1687d ago

People who saw and liked the show went out and purchased the game, which is fun.

I don't see the problem.

" No I didn't read the article.."

But then again, maybe I do.

Well 1 mil is not great, but I think word of mouth is spreading that while not technically a very good game, it is very fun and how many mmo options are there on consoles.

1 million can be great, it all depends on how much it cost to actually make and support this game.

It doesn't seem super high in production value so there's a good chance they've turned a significant profit already.

In addition to that, as long as the show is doing okay it'll keep bringing in more people that gain an interest in the game. Every episode is an hour long advertisement for the game.

Fine then, you go make a video game that reaches 1 million users.

IMO if they made this game free to play on consoles, they'd probably have more by now.

Well is kinda is for an MMO. All you have to buy is the game. No subscription fees. Would you rather it be free with subscriptions like DC Universe?
