Sega revealed sales data for two of their titles, Virtua Tennis 2009 and The Conduit, in their quarterly earnings report.
150,000 copies in June alone is pretty good imo.
Actually Product, I'd say damned good, the game came out June 26th, so in four days it sold 150k? In the dead of summer?
But its still a flop! I didn't play the game nor did i even look for the pieces that tell the story so its generic its a FLOP BLADI BLADI BLAH... T_T if only my Disc reader was working...am cry =(.
I dl'd it for pc....I played it for 10 minutes...No high end PC can make it Virtua Tennis 2009.... This is Virtua Tennis 2005
Good sales!!! I wish sega all the best in becoming a major developer / publisher again, so they can fund Shenmue 3!
tell u the truth im enjoyin the hell out of it its really fun for a fps wii game though i keep seeing the same guys everytime but its enjoyable
You are seeing the same guys because they are on your level. It really does seem like they match you to your skill level which is what made mario kart really fun.
Almost time for july numbers, I imagine it will do just fine. It may not be best selling game of the year but how many 7-8 scored games sell that many? In the end, the beauty of developing games for wii is most companies can make their money back with a profit when 500,000 units are sold. If they sold over 100,000 in under 4 days then in theory they should have no problem making the 1/2 million mark. Last i checked Conduit was a low budget title to begin with. so Guess what?... thankfully for wii owners.. this is one hardcore title that sold. Maybe we'll see some more.
is that those numbers are only for the Americas. The game didn't release in Europe and other places until July. 150k in 4 days in America alone? Hardly a flop based on the info we have now. Also, I see this game selling well over time. Nearly every time I have people over to play video games and they try The Conduit, some of them decide to buy it for themselves. I don't see why it would be different worldwide wherever people host gaming nights with it.
I think within a year we'll be seeing The Conduit pass the 1 million mark. That's great news for a small 3rd party developer like HVS. The profit they make on this game can go towards making their next 2 Wii games even better (Gladiator and The Grinder).
Seriously this will help HVS make the next few games even better. Some really cool people over there! I hope sega decide to give them pretty good deals for the next few project or either let them be party of sega america or some thing...LOL but I'm sure no one would want that curse LOL.
