The racing game from Codemasters - F1 2017 - sold 170,427 units first week at retail, according to VGChartz estimates.
Not very good?
about 30 thousand more than the previous year so its not bad.
I got F1 16 for half the price. So no need for me to get this new game. I was living with F1 13 until I got 16 so I'm one of those who didn't bother.
Pretty good for a niche racing game.....which is itself a niche genre within gaming. Most people don't understand that selling 200k copies of a game isn't really bad. People see a few EA games & GTA sell millions and expect all games to do that. Plenty of games will sell 20,000-40,000 units weekly or even monthly and still get buy and make a profit.
For an F1 game thats not too bad.
Race games keep selling for longer time
They do but when they run a new one out every year it does cost them sales...
Probably doesn't even cover the cost for the rights to use a scan of Bernie Ecclestone's eyebrows.
