95 copies????? And it's been out for less than a week!? OMG! LBP2 Bombed! /s

nix2649d ago (Edited 2649d ago )

wow... that's a new low for these websites. 2011, we'll see even more. i can't even imagine how creative they are gonna be.

EDIT:
@thereapersson (below): yeah.. we've already seen some this month already (eg. LoT). the more PS3 games comes out the more desperate these sites gets. i'm sure KZ3 is gonna get around safe 9.0 score so that they can give Crysis 9.5~10.

Next up: Bashing a game for failing to live up to sales expectations before it is even released.

Everyone who values what little integrity N4G still retains will utilize the report system, and act accordingly.

@ Nix above

Wasn't Lens of Truth exposed for trying to make the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2 look bad by knowingly publishing an analysis of an old build of ME2? Didn't Digital Foundry's analysis completely refute LoT's analysis, causing LoT to instead crown the 360 version the "winner" simply because you can find the 360 version cheaper and because all three editors "already played through the 360 version"? One of the editors even crowned the 360 version the winner, not because of the PS3's technical competence, but because he preferred the 360 controller.

lol...

And that's supposed to make the game worse? Not selling as good as the predecessor? Give me a f***ing break

nix2649d ago (Edited 2649d ago )

@thereapersson: yup dude... they'll have to come up with more creative ideas to thumb down exclusive PS3 games. oh wait!!!! THEY'RE EXCLUSIVES!!!! CAN'T BE COMPARED!!! q;

only if i could give you second 'Agree' for that edit comment. he he..

Headquarters112649d ago

So what, who gives a fuck about sales other than 360 fanboys (thats all they have left). LBP2 is just another AAA exclusive added to my game collection, regardless of how much it sold.

Yi-Long2649d ago

... many European fans of the first game decided to import the USA CE instead!?

I know I did.

TehUltimateNewb2649d ago

I know, maybe I'll go out today and buy 100 copies. That way tommorows headline will be:

"LITTLEBIGPLANET 2 HUGE SUCCESS!!!: OUTSELLS PART 1 BY 5 COPIES!!!!!!"

Hmmm, maybe I should start up my own gaming website...

EeJLP-2649d ago

Lmfao @ 95 copies.

There's not much more I can say. I don't know where people come up with the idea to make a news article about that. That's within a margin of error.. and even if it's a rock solid figure, that's still like what 5-10 minutes worth of sales?

HolyOrangeCows2649d ago (Edited 2649d ago )

Ps3 is doomed. PS3 gamers don't buy games, they just troll n4g. /s

Incredibly lame, flamebait-y article.

goflyakite2649d ago

I lol'd when I read "95", OMG NOOOOO!

i don't see numbers....

Raendom2649d ago

Read the CVG article. They announced that it only sold 95 copies less.

LBP2 is GOTY for me so far, going to be hard to top such a magnificent game.

DatNJDom812649d ago

DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOMED!

thereapersson2649d ago (Edited 2649d ago )

/facepalm

Has the game even been out a full 7 days?

@ below

Just as I thought, which further cements my decision to not give this website any hits.

R_aVe_N2649d ago (Edited 2649d ago )

@thereapersson no it has not been out a full week yet.... considering it came out two days later in the UK. Just another site trying to get hits.... Like always....

They stopped selling LBP2 already??

Anon19742649d ago (Edited 2649d ago )

And here we go. We've seen this happen before, with the first LittleBigPlanet, with MGS4, with Uncharted and Uncharted 2. Whenever the PS3 seems to get an outstanding title that all the critics love, some game media just simply can't deal with it so they just find something else to focus on to convince people that something's wrong. When the game itself is outstanding, the next step is to attack the sales. "It didn't sell a million in seconds." "It didn't even beat the previous version." blah blah blah

When LittleBigPlanet launched there was article after article trying to convince us that the game was a sales flop - even though the game sold over 4 million copies, a number literally unheard of for a platform game that doesn't start with "M" and end with "ario".

No matter what games come out on the PS3 and how much people love them, there will always be these critical voices from within the gaming media. It's just sad. No one cares what LBP2 sold in the UK in week one in the UK. It doesn't matter, and it's certainly not worthy of a headline.

Christopher2649d ago

It also released in one of the slowest game selling months in the year...

UltimateIdiot9112649d ago

Not only that but with DCUO a week prior and Mass Effect 2 with Dead Space 2 on it's way.

If anything, this is a good indication, LBP2 stand strong against competitions.

good to see crap ops knocked down to second if only for a week by a game that warants adtention.

somethingstrang2649d ago

Lol 95 copies. I bet the error in their estimate is more than 95!

CaptainMarvelQ82649d ago

wait,i can't get to the website,but do they mean lp2 sold less in full time sales or first week sales?

ForceCSW2649d ago

They're comparing first week sales. Apparently LBP sold 95 copies more *GASP* in its first week.

DundahMifflin2649d ago

LOL! 95? It's been out for a week. Give it a break.
