VG247 is reporting that Rainbow Six Vegas 2 has now sold 2 million units. The news comes in a Ubisoft press release raising financial guidance for 07/08.
Holy SHIET that was FAST :O
yup great expansion pack.
The sequel doesn't offer too much more than the original. A shame considering the first left me (and everyone else) with high expectations for a second installment. Oh well...back to COD4
yeah, seems too quick, but hey, now they know that they dont need to fix games to sell games, way to go consumers we just gave ubi 120 million (the cost of 2 mil $60 games of course) reasons to release more games with out testing them-- yeah!! /sarcasm
I tried to worn as many people as possible! They did fix it so you can actually play online on the PS3..... it's still broken though! :(
it's too much.
there is just 3 guys,but they call it rainbow six.strange ha?!
You know it doesn't have to do with the amount of guys on Rainbow 6 right? One guy isn't Red, another Orange, another Yellow lol...just thinking about that would be pretty gay actually
they shipped out 2million no way
Can't believe people fall for halfarse crap like this, No graphical improvement, No story development. They have just taken assets they already had, moved things around and sold it as a full priced game. This is more of a expansion pack.
Yeah but what you have to understand is for the people who played part 1, that's all people would talk about, is if we could just get some more boards, better rank, and more guns... "I would fall back in-love with this game all over again.." I mean they did map pack, after map pack, that gets old quick - so really the love for the game was just so huge that people would have been happy with just more guns and maps... so making a part 2 that has more guns, maps, and ranking would clearly be huge. People love they games they love, and they get hooked to good games, right now I can't wait for the Maps for COD4 and if they came out with more maps more guns more ranks and a whole new mission I would buy a COD4 part2 in a heart beat for 49.95 while I wait for COD6 because the game is just that good. That of course is rare, but it's the way the gaming market is becoming because the market is getting so big. New gamers are hoping on everyday.
Well I guess this pretty much confirms that even crappy games can sell millions.
WTF happened to you? You where pretty big in the early 90's. Damn! Nice to see ya anyhow.
my bad.....I guess I was still listening to him in the early 90's. Wow! That's a really sad relization :(.
The Rick Astley hand shuffle FTW.
Although I don't have this game it's my understanding that it's very much like the first game. How about some diversity guys. Go out and get Uncharted or Mass Effect or something. Why waste your money on an expasion pack to the original game?
but seriously, why so much hate on this game..
im having a blast
cuz the first game was much better, and this is just a ubi-patented map pack sequel.
It has flawless graphics that stand the test of time. Its gameplay being exactly the same is also rock solid and perfect. Hell how can the team improve on perfection? Apparently you can rehash an old game and get 2 million dollars worth of idiots buying it. I feel sorry for those of you whose first gaming generation is this one. This gen is pathetic.
You need to tell me where you're shopping for games because apparently I've been getting ripped off..
2 million "WORTH" doesn't mean 1 dollar each. It means 2 million dollars "WORTH'(which is why I used worth) of __blank____. You see "Blank" can be whatever the product is, with a set price for that product. In this Case it varies depending where you are in the world, and what the value of your dollar is. Its basically saying how much of Y can I buy with X. To help your reading comprehension out a bit, Here is a Real life Example: $9.00 worth of strawberries, at 30 cent each equals what? No no no, not 9 strawberries, because the strawberries have a set price. (Thats probably where you got confused). Feel free to PM me with the answer, or stealth edit your embarrassing reply.
Would it be a better decision to look into the first Vegas or Vegas 2?
On a side note, i know what you're saying about rehashing games. But if Infinity Ward did this with Modern Warfare i'd probably buy it because Modern Warfare is addicting like crack. Well, i haven't tried crack but i hear its really addicting.
Actually it seems you need help comprehending your own writing. Direct quote, "2 million dollars worth," which isn't the same as 2 million worth. To help your reading comprehension out a bit, Here is a Real life Example: $9.00 worth of strawberries comes out to how much? *drum roll* Exactly $9.00. No no no, not 9 strawberries as you've proven my point exactly. Now this next one might be a little too complicated for you as there are going to be some extra digits. $2,000,000 worth of strawberries is how much money? *Drum roll" Exactly $2,000,000. Now "2 million dollars worth of gamers" is about how many gamers? No need to pm me and let this embarrassment of yours go any further. "2 million dollars worth of gamers" considering each game has a set price of $65 is *drum roll* 30,770 gamers or games sold. You calling a select group of people idiots is the pot calling the kettle black.
so 'cause PS3 games doesn't sell millions in a few weeks like other games, this GEN is crap?, ooooook
#1. You know Games cost more than 1 dollar. You were trying really hard to get out a quip out to my reply. You can try to use semantics to get out of it all you want. And try to twist my words into something outside of me saying "2 million dollars worth of idiots." 9 dollars worth of 30 cent strawberries doesn't equal 9 strawberries. Again I'll wait for you stealth edit.I know you want to save face and pretend we are on some other subject all together. But We aren't. You've typed all of that to prove that games don't cost 1.00 each. Good Job. So I guess you answered your own "clever" reply as well?
You dont make no sense mate.
Yeah, I was thinking the same, 2 million. Shipped.
Crappy games sell all the time. People buy anything thats hyped. Plus it came out during a gaming drought. People have been playing cod4 for so many months they wanted something different.
Lol, wow. This game is the biggest rip off of the year. It's just an expansion pack, should be $20-$30 at most.
I have #1 still unopened on my shelf. 2 million already? Hmmmmmmmmm
1.9 million traded in after people finish the game in 5 hours
a recommended shooter
