Fuel Overdose on the PSN has Sold Just 600 Copies Since Launch in December 2012/March 2013

As we sit on the precipice of Grand Theft Auto V’s midnight release, with millions of sales sure to accompany it, Skander Djerbi of I-Friqiya has some sad news about Fuel Overdose, which was released in December 2012 in Europe and March 2013 in North America. - PSLS (Fuel Overdose, PS3)

indie games that don't do anything good prob won't sell very well.

If everything is "just ok" or just a checklist item or something then it probably won't wow people.

Just curious, why the mention of indie games? Fuel Overdose is an Insomniac game published by EA. Definitely not indie.
KidBroSweets2  +   679d ago
Well in the video it DOES say, "The indie game that refreshed the combat racing genre".

@monkey ninja , Fuel Overdose isnt from insomniac. i think you got confused with sunset overdrive or overstrike

good games sell.
brish  +   679d ago
Not always. Shadow of the Colossus didn't do very well sales wise but it's one of the best games ever made.
ABizzel1  +   679d ago
True, but then you can look at the re-release of the game in the ICO / SotC HD collection, and together they sold over 1 million copies. On top of that while it's a great game, it's not a game for everyone.

Beyond Good & Evil bombed in sales when it first released.

Psychonauts is another game that received immense critical praise upon released, and also tanked in sales.

Just because a game is good doesn't mean it will sell well. Likewise, just because a game sales well doesn't mean it's good, lol.

and alot of times bad games sell solely on it's name and not based on how it actually plays,like COD or licensed movie games. cod sells to some on how it plays but its many sequels are just copy and paste jobs so a lot of the sells come from people who bought the previous one.

Wow, I never would have thought this was possible. Hopefully they get it up on other platforms to increase sales.

I didn't disagree with you, but I would argue that if the game is a piece of garbage, then the developers (not these particular devs, but devs in general) need to take a hit. I haven't played this particular game, or even heard of it until now, but it's sitting at a 51 on Metacritic, and even with Metacritic being a joke, it's a poor reflection of the game itself. If devs go on to make profit on horrible games, then it gives them incentive to keep making crap games. I don't want people to go broke or lose their jobs if they are good workers, but I personally cannot support a developer that created bad games just for the sake of profit.

Oh, this game.

I played the demo, thought it was sorta fun

How could a game that critics said "isn’t satisfying in the least" end up also not being interesting enough for people to buy? It's like the game isn't satisfying or something :O

(Also the price should be lower.)

Does that make it an award winner? I do believe it does. There are unreleased games that have more copies in the wild than this one.
Acquiescence  +   679d ago
Never even heard of it until now.

Brutal.
thebudgetgamer  +   679d ago
What's the point of this?
BitbyDeath  +   679d ago
Said the 600 people who bought the game.
nunley33  +   679d ago
Lmao
blackbirdi  +   679d ago
no wonder the game was bad
wishingW3L  +   679d ago
out of 70 million only 600 bought the game? lol
mj_msv  +   679d ago
It was overpriced in europe in when first released, I was intrested in it so got it when it was on sale, and it was not even worth the "sale price", it was really horrible, and I really like those games normally....
deadfrag  +   679d ago
Put it on Steam greenlight!
VicodinViking  +   679d ago
Game looks like garbage, so I'm not surprised it **** the bed.
LetoAtreides82  +   679d ago
$9.99 is a major reason why it only sold that much. Bring it down to something more reasonable like $1.99 and it should sell better.
Funantic1  +   679d ago
Lol
NarooN  +   679d ago
I wonder if Super Rub'a'Dub sold more than this.
BitbyDeath  +   679d ago
It did but it was a lot cheaper.
nunley33  +   679d ago
Sounds like it needs a sales bump from the promotion being a playstation plus title brings.
TrendyGamers  +   679d ago
PlayStation Plus free games require a MetaCritic score of 70+, so this wouldn't qualify.
nunley33  +   679d ago
i guess if this isnt a good game then i wouldn't want it in my IGC anyways. @$2 it's almost free so maybe this will be good for trophy hunters.
