Valkyria Chronicles sales increase 400% in April, reveals importance of price cut

Joystiq.com writes: Perhaps the old adage "better late than never" applies well here. Valkyria Chronicles, Sega's PS3 exclusive SRPG, earned heaps of critical praise, but never garnered sales worthy of its caliber. Six months after the game's release, Sega is reporting a 400% sales increase in April (versus March), with a sellthrough that nearly matches what the game had during its original release.

So basically they doubled their sales on this game, by chopping the price in half they sold 4 times as much. Maybe other games will follow in it's footsteps.

Bought this game day 1 it was out and I don't regret it for a second. It is truly a GREAT RPG with an awesome story.

I hope this makes Sega want to make a #2 since they also now are making a anime on this game in Japan.

I actually bought it in the Boxing Day sales here in the UK and only paid £20 for it, but looking back i would have gladly paied much more One of the best games that noones has heard of.

Good for SEGA that they're selling more

I wish games would simply RELEASE at a lower price point than the $60 average. $40-$50 PS3/360 would have people a lot less foogle with which games they pickup, people will take more risk and buy more games then everybody wins.

It's hard to rate new RPGs alongside the classics, but this one is in my top five without a doubt. Incredible game, with an incredible amount of replayability. I always feel like throwing this game on.

Every now and then a truly fun and interesting game comes along. While PS3 has had a few already. I must say that Valkyria Chronicles is my favorite so far.

Paid $59.99 plus tax for it and it is worth every penny.

menoyou2605d ago

this game rocks, i highly recommend it

I played it back when it first came out, I think if they added trophies alot more people would play it.

Trebius2605d ago

lol you said foogle...

@topic I havent bought this game yet, but will now...I'm always open to a new RPG experience...especially if it doesnt run me 70 bucks. :)

JL2605d ago

I loved this game. Granted i was late to the party, but after hearing about it so much for a while i ended up picking it up at a discounted price at walmart one night and wow am i glad i did. this game was amazing. great fun, the story was very good. just all around great. the only thing is: i do still harbor a lil resentment towards this game because (and i'll fess up to it) the bastards made me cry. i hated them for that lol. i won't give away any spoilers just in case, but for those that played it, they know what i'm talking about.

me i got it for 30 bucks, but i will gladly pay 70 bucks for this game, now that i know how great this game has turned out to be. i'm a little saddened because i'm almost on the last part of the game. i hope they make valkyria 2 soon because i will miss this game once i'm done with it.

ultimolu2605d ago

I need to get back to this game dammit. Too many games to beat...x.x;

CotieD2605d ago

I know what you mean... I'm in the same boat. Just started playing again this week after a few months and I'm glad I did. The story is really picking up and I'm finding it hard to but down.

I'm only on Chapter 13 btw. Not sure how many there are...

Obama2605d ago

I beated the game 2 times already :3, totally worth it.

lovedaddy2605d ago

hopefully they will repay peoples good will by adding things like trophy support

Keith Olbermann2605d ago

I love this game and wish...oh how I wish, it had trophies.

Armyless2605d ago

It would move immediately to the very top of my "next purchase" games. As it stands right now, there are just too many games.

The Dixie Flatline2605d ago

Easily one of my favorite games this console generation.
I just downloaded the two new DLC missions; I am now back to playing this game again. "The Edy Detachment" was okay, but I really like the "Behind Her Blue Flame" mission.
