In a post-earnings conference call with investors, UbiSoft offered more detail as to how well Shaun White Snowboarding is performing in the market.
this should be a hint to ea to just realease an SSX GAME ALREADY at e3 you better or else i am going to continue not buying your games... i want to give you money but you just won't let me ea, WHY? why won't you let me give you money?
... I have no respone.
man, this is tragic isn't it? on-topic: 3kk (too much Ragnarok Online -_-)? very good, i wonder why sports games sell so much more... might give this game a chance... and still waiting virtua tennis...
LMFAO! - made my day!
3 million copies?? WOW, that's amazing for such a crappy game!!! The last great snowboarding games were amped and SSX
was thinking the same. it gets average reviews and yet sells 3 mil! lol
But it sold so well primarily because it was bundled with the Wii and it was better for most people to watch what looks like a somewhat mature game rather than the usual Miis looking goofy as you do various sports. I think there is a big desire for many teenagers on the Wii to feel like they're not playing a game meant for kids under the age of 10, so new games with improved graphics with a more mature, but not too mature, feel will likely sell well enough on that alone.
I think you may be right cgoodno and I think that's why Red Steel 2 might be a success, it's a more mature title that a teenager can actually buy.
Man people really liked this game huh? 3 million snow boarding fans and I wonder what age they are? The Wii is starting to turn into the snes very slowly it seems. Better yet the NES because the graphics boost will come in the next system. Has killzone 2 sold 3 million yet? Just had to ask sorry. I mean I'm just wondering why a game like killzone 2 did do that once it came out? There is nothing but hardcore gamers on the PS3 right? Hey at least you guys got a spec flexing game.
"Has killzone 2 sold 3 million yet?" Was Killzone 2 released on 6 different consoles? I bet if Killzone 2 was released on 6 different consoles it would have sold well over 3 million
Shaun, How does it feel to sell out to Target???
I bought the game despite the low scores. But there's so much wrong with it, even though it can be fun. The fact that it sold so much doesn't surprise me, people will buy anything with Shaun White on it.
Maybe this will be an incentive for another SSX game to be made...
1. Please eliminate the annoying Shaun White scenes 2. Please make a more technically sound game 3. Please offer more, and more excitement Overall I was pretty impressed w/ Shaun White. Enough to go out, buy it, and Platinum it. Initially the rental didn't have any problems but once I bought the Target version I started running into a few glitches. In the end it was a really fun snowboarding game. In no way did it bring back flashbacks of SSX but in it's own right Shaun White was a pretty solid title; imo...
