Lego games are amazing, especially Lego City on Wii U.
mcstorm  +   182d ago
I agree Lego City was a really fun game. I am looking at getting the Movie game on the WiiU too.
abzdine  +   182d ago
do you know if it uses gamepad the same way as City?
mcstorm  +   181d ago
Im not sure but that was my thinking and the reason I was looking to pick it up on the WiiU over the xbox one.

@abzdine

Yes, The LEGO Movie Videogame uses the GamePad.

Is that all? Seems very low actually and that's across all formats as well.

Doesn´t seem to be the most expensive game to develop either.
I love the 2 demos though (Marvel/LEGO:The Videogame)

I actually came here to say the same thing.

Low ? Guys it's for 2013 , against every blockbusters even like GTA ... and in the "kids" department some competition with Disney's Infinity and Skylanders ... And it's already going faster a 400+k for early 2014

i'm sure they are happy , and it will probably go higher in the following years with the hype from the Lego movie

The thing is, sales wise that's terrible.. just look back at previous LEGO games, sales wise across all formats and the 2013 numbers are truely terrible.

A few examples and some of these are old now since the games don't sell anymore.

LEGO Star Wars (as of 2009) 6.7mil copies
LEGO Star Wars 2 (as of 2009) 8.2mil copies (heck, it sold 1.1mil copies on in it's opening week)

LEGO Indy 1 (as of 2012) 11mil copies
LEGO Pirates (as of 2012) 3mil copies

Maybe the LEGO have played out? (hope not, I love them, think they're amazing little time suckers and a blast to play)

But it's obvious that the sales have been declining more and more as time goes on.. I haven't found sales' figures for LotR, Batman 2, or both HP's.

Either way, won't stop me from getting 'LEGO The Hobbit' next month.. and I see TT Games has a LEGO Marvel vs DC Superheroes listed on it's wikipedia page but that hasn't been announced yet.

Of course it's wearing out , but again you have to remember what they are going against at the holidays . besides it's only UK

yeah... seems a bit low. Probably the quote is being taken out of context and its for Nintendo platforms or something like that
DanielGearSolid  +   182d ago
That kind of sucks
vikingland1  +   182d ago
Considering the number of consoles that seems low. 160 million+ 360's & PS3's. Not even counting PS4 & XB1 & WiiU. Those numbers can't be right.
MegaRay  +   182d ago
"Since 2013" i am sure WB is happy about 1.6+ million a year.
Rockefellow  +   182d ago
Assuming 5 different Lego games launched in 2013, across half a dozen platforms, this seems unbelievably low.
Loadedklip  +   182d ago
This is either a misquote or miscommunication.
millzy102  +   182d ago
It's only UK read the actual paragraph under the title, Warner bros UK so Lego sold more than a million in UK alone read people. So everyone bringing up world wide sales numbers of previous Lego games have wasted there time. Is it really that hard.

We all waste our time :p
Ocsta  +   182d ago
Seems lower than I would have thought. Weren't there tons of LEGO games released last year?
Geekman  +   182d ago
I liked Undercover, but that was my last Lego game. They're getting dull.
