Rumored sales figures of games such as Bayonetta, MAG, and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom have been leaked.
If you match up the top 20 NPD with this information, it does fit in. I'm guessing Tatsunoko vs. Capcom would have been in the top 25 or so, which isn't that bad at all.
Mario is still going like crazy.
wow, what happened to Bayonetta? All the 360 fans were hyping it up and it sold as much as MAG did even though it's multiplat (and Bayonetta had a WHOLE month to do those sales).
the real test will be final fantasy 12....bayonetta was never hyped by people..its a good game but there are plenty of better games to compare....xbox and ps3 will be neck and neck when that game comes out....what about comparing modern warfare 2 ps3 or xbox saaking..oh yea huh...xbox version...north america alone is at 6.5 million.....ps3 is at 3.5 million.....
"I'm guessing Tatsunoko vs. Capcom would have been in the top 25 or so, which isn't that bad at all." If the numbers are true, that means Ultimate All-Star's already outsold Cross Generations of Heroes's first six months on the Japanese market, which is... bizarre when one considers how people in Japan actually knew what the heck Tatsunoko was in the first place.
"the real test will be final fantasy 12" FF12, didn't that game came out long ago, like the Gen Before? Man, you're acting like the xbowners, they really don't know [email protected] about the Franchise but want it anyway, some guys probably think is Japanese Shooter.... BWahahahaha...
WOW, i am happy that a game like (MAG) is doing so well, must be played by everyone.
Now this just sucks for no more heroes 2 i wouldve loved to see it sell alot more same for tatsunoku vs capcom
Ouch at Dark Void! Why didn't these developers get with MS and make a new Crimson Skies!!! Why they wasted their time on this with Capcom is beyond me.. It's looking like the same for Dead Rising 2.. It will probably fair better because it can ride on Inafune sans original classic. But the Americanization of these IP's is killing them.. see Chuck "American Douchebag" Green of Dead Rising 2.. (Not calling Americans Douches just saying the game plays to the stereotype)
Capcom isnt doing very well with games like bionic commando and now dark void flopping like crazy no wonder they aint making anymore western games. It hasnt been going very well for capcom ever since platinum games got established hell they lost the maker of resident evil and devil may cry thats a hard blow. Hell every game i loved from capcom either came from 1 of these people or clover studios.
MAG & Darksiders > Bayonetta But this is common sense.
bots buy only halo and gears and nothing more.. fact.
Bots buy every game and I mean "every game" more than the droids Fact Do I sound like you now Nasim?
Bayonetta hitting DAT BARGAIN BIN sooner than expected. it looks like platinum games is going to shutdown... again, LOL!
It sold 1 million thats more then bionic commando,darkvoid combined. I didnt know there were capcom fanboys.
so what you're telling me is that it sold 800k in Europe!?
MajesticBeast is probably referring to this pronouncement: http://www.gamasutra.com/vi... Of course, in light of the recent NPD info, it seems like that the link above is making the classic error of conflating units shipped to retailers and units actually bought by consumers, which are not the same thing.
can you guys imagine if this was just a 360 exclusive. OH GODAMN,B!
I'm impressed, especially since it's a new IP AND online-only.
So MAG was not only a complete flop with a lowly 76 on MetaCritic, but it totally bombed in sales, too? Ouch! Actually buy the games you hype up, PS3 fanboys! You're just setting all your exclusives up for failure with the high pedestals you place them on. Hyping mediocre games up to ungodly levels, and then not even buying them to top it off is definitely NOT a good strategy.
Bayonetta did well enough although the NPD numbers do not match what Sega has been posting up. They claim it has sold over a million copies across both consoles. Probably 500,000 + & - on each. Dunno which system it sold more on however. 150K for mag is a farcry from being a success however. That's below average by todays standards for what some consider to be a highly anticipated game. This isn't the 16bit era anymore where 150K was actually " impressive " for a single platform game. It's not a total flop but' it hardly a success. For the amount of hype it was getting, it just makes you want to laugh a little seeing little it sold.
It , mag and darksiders are actually success . Stop feeding yourself that crap that budget are now so high they need multiple millions sales to get benefits . Yakuza has a budget higher than the 2 combined in both marketing and development and was very profitable to sega within the very first 500k sold . And bayonetta was actually already a sucess within it's japanese release and it's first 200k. The irony is you guys buying the crap from interview of the likes of Bobby kotick , collecting 12 million of copies worth of money , for a game that is basically quake 3's engine heavily modified , doesnt even have the cost of dedicated servers , doesnt even have betas , and sells sh*tload of dlc . Basically a very cheap game for activision with mostly a minimal marketing investment this year . Guys , stop listening to the like EA or activision , they will always feel games should cost more , and sell more . They are bottomless pit of greed who became to big for their own good , and MUST keep increasing their profit all the time , to met exagerated expectations from shareholders , with evergrowing appetites ... or else they would collapse on their own weigths . Stop always using fanboy crap mixed with so called economical and financials facts ... just ask the devs and yourself this ? Are Platinum and Vigil actually happy with the performance of bayonetta and darksiders ? Just look around and you'll see that they very much are , with already sequels planned . And it seems to be the same with MAG . Isnt MAG actually performing way better than anticipated and prophetized than the "oooh it's ugly" crowd ? Yes , Absolutely .
Just stop trolling. I didn't know that a game has to pull MW2 numbers to be called a success. MAG is not only a new IP and online only, it's an exclusive to the console with the lowest fanbase and got little to no hype from Sony and it still managed to pull those numbers in January, which is usually a pretty slow month. Despite what YOU may believe, that's a success any way you spin it.
I let my buddy borrow it. Gonna beat it for the 4th time when I get it back. Anyhow A month after the biggest Shopping season of the year will be somewhat slow but there is plenty games to buy.
released on the 26th. It had less than a week on the market before this set of numbers was compiled. There's no reason to be down on the sales yet. I'd been waiting for it for a while, but wasn't sure when it released exactly myself at first since I haven't seen any marketing for it. I ended up buying it the week after it released. I imagine that there are others in the same boat even still.
