Then they'll release them along side the releases of Gears of War 3, Halo( whatever ), Call of Duty, Crisis..etc and wonder why noone bought their games.

That is the sad truth. VC had very underwhelming sales on PS3 because of hen it came out. It is sad because it was actually a very good games and now a proper console sequel is unlikely. (they will stick to PSP where the development costs are low)
Development cost is also why they are more eager to supporting the 360 now. (as well as more competition for now on PS3.)

console owners all buy the same 5-10 games every year (for the most part). 95% of games on console sell poorly, this is why publishers are losing money like crazy on the consoles this generation. Heck how many people do you knw who own only guitar hero and call of duty? VC sold poorly because it has a very limited audience on a console, honestly I dont know anybody who would like that game despite it being good.

you speak the truth. publishers are left fighting over the small % that didn't blow their allowance on the overhyped flavor of the minute.

With a moderate development budget and NO advertising. It did well enough to warrant a continuation of the series on the PSP, and I'm sure a PS3 iteration will come in due course.

Theonik2867d ago (Edited 2867d ago )

I don't know. On the PSP version they even took down all the story that was layed out on the PS3 and the anime. Based on that i don't think they have plans fro another PS3 VC game and will keep it to PSP.
@Obama: Never said Lost Odysey sales were not underwhelming as well. I'm sure Sega hoped to sell more than 1M copies with VC.

VC has more sales than Lost Odessey, and I thought people say that game has decent sales.

I am sorry in advance but I honestly do not see the reasoning for a japanese software company to back the 360. Unless big checks are involved I am dumbfounded.

because the ps2 killed the dreamcast /s

like SquareEnix, Sega Tri Ace sold their souls to M$.

kevnb2868d ago

im surprised there are no pc figures. It seems to me the total war series is one of segas biggest games series...
