GAMASUTRA takes in to account the numbers of AMAZON only.

GAMASUTRA ==AMAZON charts

TOTAL BS

BIOSHOCK is available all over and u would never come across a retailer where it is SOLD OUT

www.bestbuy.com

www.ebgames.com

www.gamestop.com

www.circuitcity.com

www.costco.com

U would never come across a store/website except AMAZON where BIOSHOCK is selling

The game is a masterpiece, and with all of the rave reviews, sales were bound to take off.
I do hope this motivates them to get some DLC underway. A nice new area would be an easy thing for them to add on with it being a "room-based" environment.

If you win the game, you sacifice your life and die in the end. How can you get any DLC out of that?? The "good" ending also basically kills off any chance of having a sequel.

Bioshock is a deep FPS. I've played 33% of the game so far, and it deserves the good sales. The game is richly detailed and polished with amazing AI, weapons, and powers (plasmids). It appeals to both RPG and FPS fans.

Uh oh. Where is Larry and Nasim with there links saying Bioshock is a flop? EDIT: LOL bubble to you to (why not) :)

castdreams3435d ago

USMChardcharger3435d ago (Edited 3435d ago )

you can throw me into that as well...

let's hear it lazzy007

hey did he send you guys a PM just to tell you to look at his post about bioshocks numbers like he did me. come on man

edit:WHOA GUYS...i am agreeing with the above posts. that lazy007 guy PMed me...just to say look at my bashing post about a game you like.

i think that is pathetic. it is people like that, that prevent intelligent conversation in here.
it is people like that, that prevent me and you saying what we don't like about our own system or games and what we would like to see improve without them going..."see your 360 sucks" or whatever system you own.

easy guys...i am on the your side.

castdreams3435d ago

Are you even joking? Larry and nasm have got to be the most annoying people in the history of EVER.

USMChardcharger3435d ago

oook...did i give you the impression that i did not think that as well. if so...slow down and reread my post.

i mean who in the hell PM's you to say go look at my post about a game you like that i am bashing?

razer3435d ago
