This is true,but...

I recall way back in the early 90's when they were pure magic on the amiga & mega drive with games like Shadow of the Beast 1 to 3,Leander,Killing game show and more...

I have always wished that along with more PG they would have gone back to those roots with this gens power behind the games.They were ahead of the times 15 to 20 years ago...

I hope they ( the core) make a comeback still in some fashion......

Hey everyone, hope you can all check out an editorial I put a fair bit of work and research into. It's a good learning editorial, and I definitely felt a bit of sadness and emotion for the team.

Sorry man, but I'm pretty sure that Geometry Wars must of made quite a lot of money for Bizzarre. You don't seem to have that on the chart. I know it's digital and might be harder to track sales for both, but to me it seemed like what they lost on the Club was more or less gained back on GW2.

Also, I remember playing Wiz and Liz. But in the later years, sadly, Bizzarre were the guys that made Geometry Wars to me but Galaxies proved others could take the formula and improve it. It's a shame they'll never make a new GW for motion controls such as Move and Kinect.

I looked at Geometry Wars but was mainly trying to track the retail sales etc :)

I do acknowledge that Geometry Wars was a brilliant game though. I love it.

How many of those sales for PGR3 and PGR4 were off of 360 bundles or chatpad bundles? As far as I know they don't separate those figures. I wonder what the real figures are for people that actually bought the game.
