nice. hopefully this game goes on selling well. its not my cup of tea but i want it and the developers to be successful

True lol, expect it to be on discount on Steam in the next 2-3months just like the other THQ games.

I remember buying Metro 2033 for 23usd 3months after launch great price for that game.

Ill wait for a Steam discount for this one.

Those are day 1 sales, not even week 1. So lets wait and see how well it does before we start talking about 2nd week sales. So far its looking set to beat every fps that has released this year in NA. I say in NA because NA is all the data we have right now.

That's actually not too shabby for day one sales of a new IP. But whether it sells two million as THQ wants remains to be seen. If this does do well, then hopefully THQ wll encourage pushes into something more experimental in the future.

With each 'new' game you hope they learn, but they never do.

True that, I agree.

Although it gives them the opportunity to gauge the current server at full capacity to see how much they need to do.

I disagree, Guerrilla is a prime example. Before Killzone: Liberation the games they made weren't received too well critically but they turned that around. Killzone: Liberation was received better than Killzone on the PS2 and Killzone 2 and 3 speak for themselves after that.

I think any team can make good games if they have the right support. With Homefront it will be interesting to see if any publisher pressure played into how the game turned out. There seem to be plenty of valid complaints about in game advertising in the campaign.

its far better than crysis 2 and bulletstorm but still not as good as bc2

mushroomwig2441d ago

Hopefully this is true, the devolopers need to sell 2 million just to break even and I hope they make it!

why? all they did was clone a tired game that should have died off long ago. vote with your dollars ppl...stop supporting this tripe, and they'll stop churning it out.
