Sony's Shuhei Yoshida revealed that Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale managed to sell over 1 million copies since launch.
glorious. congratulations sony. that means the game was successful. i like when new and quality ips are successful because developers will take more risks making more or new ips. also other developers will see the success of others and be emboldened to take risks themselves. i would like a proper AAA Dragon ball z adventure game.
Very good for a new IP in less than a year so late in the gen
the next game needs to have more pop culture characters and not just characters from Sony gaming history. Batman, Darth Vader, Predator, Terminator, Rambo... that kind of thing.
Not the greatest game. Fighting mechanics could use some work. But overall, great concept! I've always wanted a game like this. Now all we need is Marvel vs DC, and Xbox vs Playstation fighting games.
I would like to beat up mario with Kratos ;)))
that's not fair the XBOX only has about 15 fighters against Sony's 50+
@xk77 But you can play as all of Sony's characters. With MS, you get the worst one free, and then pay extra for the others.
^MS will introduce their "Pay Per Punch" model: 50 cents gets you 4 punches, or **SPECIAL OFFER** 1 dollar gets you 5 punches and a kick... Also, new control features: blink to punch, scratch your nose to kick...don't worry, your credit card is automatically charged, so you don't need to click 'OK' It's gonna be AMAZING!!1! ;P
The success value depends on its production and advertisement costs. Also a successor hasn't been completely ruled out. With more polish it can be better
Now it sold 1 million and 1. I just bought it on psn now that its on sale for PS plus. Got both the ps3 and vita version together for $14 bucks!!
Good for them.
lol I guess no one can call it a flop anymore.
I'm pleasantly surprised, I had thought it sold 40k the opening week so this is very unexpected.
GAME IS ADDICTING. I WISH THEY HAD HIDDEN CHARCTERS AND EVERY CHARACTER HAD A STAGE
Congrats to SuperBot and Sony. Hopefully they give Seth Killian more power to direct the next iteration.
Seth came on like 5 months before the game shipped he really couldnt do much. @Ari Well he is lead game designer now big step up from what he was at Capcom. Adam Boyes is also from Capcom both joined Sony around the same time.
I'm still dumbfounded that Santa Monica (sp?) managed to get him!
I liked it tons. Plat is pretty easy too.
All stars 2 make it happen with hidden characters, better sony characters and an even deeper fighting mechanic. Also bigger budget! I want this to be on the same level as super smash!
Only 1 million is aweful, that's a flop
It's "awful" Try to troll correctly at least. You're a flop. Kinda ironic coming from you and that Gears icon... How's that Judgment selling?
Don't feed the troll. Is a major troll looking attention.
Judgment sold 1.2 million in a little over 2 months
1 million in 2 months sounds pretty bad for a gears game
That's pretty damn bad for Sony's flagship holiday 2012 title, on two platforms worldwide. Not surprised at all though..
I just bought it , it's like if i am the 1 million buyer :D ..
I just bought it earlier today through PSN. With Playstation Plus they have it discounted down to 14.99. With that kind of deal I just couldn't pass it up. Now I need to get a Vita so I can install it to that since I also got the Vita copy too.
Two platinums for the price of one.
lvl 765 with raiden love this game
According to vgchartz, combined physical sales are 0.68 million. I guess the other half is digital sales :) Cant wait for any future bout PSASBR. Loved the game and played the hell out of it.
Yoshida confirmed 1 million physical copies. So VGC is of by 0.32 million. As a member of the VGC community I'll be the first to tell you their tracking hasn't been the greatest of late.
Ah ok, VGC should really update their data :L Also, again great news for PSASBR!
awesome! hopefully we'll see a return on the PS4. :D
Congrats, but a fairly decent game in my opinion, could be better.
Shuhei Yoshida should be in the next game. He really knows how to kick ass.
