TVGB: "Assassin’s Creed II has sold almost 9 million copies worldwide since its launch late last year, Ubisoft reports today."
Great game deserves the sales, they really worked on fixing the problems with the first game and there's tons more stuff to do. AC2 expanded the features so much I felt bad about buying the first game full price, just because of how gimped it feels when compared to AC2.
If they can improve the AI and difficulty the next one should be awesome.
I hope so, it's been selling for under $30 for the past 4 months now! 9 mil is a ton, but they better stop at AC3, the game engine feels kinda old already!
Holy crap, that's an insane amount of copies...
Amazing it sold that much. Good game, just didn't think it appealed to that many.
WOW,good numbers,totally deserved.First time when i played it i skimmed through it,but the second time the story,the feathers,the secret...so many options,game is great.
Great game! having got the platinum i now forget about the buggy run through and remember just how great a game it is. Like fallout 3 a great game shines through its problems
good sales even though ac2 is crap in my opinion...
Dayum. That's killer. No wonder they bringing out Brotherhood so quickly. Not complaining though; I need more AC. \nn/
well deserved sale numbers IMO. I loved the puzzle and the story. I fkn love the STORY!
bought the game yesterday for €30 but Jesus what allot of frame rate drops for the ps3 version dahm thought something was wrong with the disc but its the game itself
I am not suprised, very good game. They took the best out of AC1 and added what people wanted, which in turn made a great game. Not sure about the new game having multi-player, but if it turns out good then alls well.
i was disapointed with AC2 ..i bought the game and while i enjoyed it it felt short ..i knew there was some missing chapters but ..CHAPTER 11 is too short !! and the overall lenght of the game is not enough IMO ..Especiallyy when i'm left with such a cliffanger in the scénario. While AC2 was a great improvement over the first game i'm so disapointed i won't buy another AC game right now .. ( especially brotherhood ) Ubisoft will probably cut brotherhood in pieces with dlc multiplayer co-op missions that were "corrupted" ....
Yeh, the AI was horrible , that was my only complaint with the game...
i'll never understand the popularity of this series. i bought into the "ac2 is so much better" hype and was just as bored as i was by the 1st one. i'm not getting burned a 3rd time.
Still loses $55m. Something is VERY wrong when something like this happens.
Never expected for this game to reach such heights. Well deserved for a superb sequel.
Deserves every single sale, and them some! Incredible game, my personal GOTY of 2009.
9 million people getting screwed with the release of the AC2 "Complete Edition." So glad I gave you robber barons my money.
I'd like to know how many of those were PC sales, I'm guessing not that many.
