Red Steel 2 Sale Ranks

CoffeewithGames.Blogspot.com shows the Red Steel 2 sale ranks from March 9 through April 11, 2010.

CwG ends by asking, "Do you think Amazon.com's sale ranks for both versions of Red Steel 2 is something that will be reflected in the March NPD numbers? Do you think Red Steel 2 is performing as good as The Conduit did, even though Red Steel 2 has been ranked lower than The Conduit was?"

I think Red Steel 2 will be looking at sales like The Conduit has so far.
The Conduit had a lot of hype going into its release, Red Steel 2 didn't seem to have as much.
Also, The Conduit had multi-player and was the first FPS to use Wii Speak for online play, Red Steel 2 is the first FPS to use WM+, but I think the lack of multi-player will hurt it.

Interesting. I think I'm tending to agree with you on this one. They should have added multi-player to it or some sort of online leaderboard component would have been nice.

I didn't think The Conduit sold very well...

Ubisoft kinda left Red Steel2 to die quietly in the night. They reduced their shipment numbers to only 500k and did barely an adds for it at all.

Well, it depends what we mean by "well".
More than a million, no.
Enough to get a sequel as GFahim said, yes.

I think HVS/Sega has said The Conduit has sold around 350,000 units so far.

it does look like a much improved sequel

I don't understand Ubi. They got help from none other than Retro studios to make this game. Nintendo gave 'em a Motion Plus bundle deal. Vandenberghe's team delivered a very good game.

...so Ubi stealth releases the game with a few TV ads late at night on Comedy Central.

Great job, frogs. You really dropped the ball on this one.

That said, I expect RS2 will do fine over the long haul. Probably not crack a million, but around 400K lifetime or higher. NMH and MadWorld were originally "failures," too. Then they just kept selling, bit by bit.
