With many new IPs struggling to make an impact in our current gaming climate, Team Bondi's efforts have resonated well with gamers as one month sales are impressive.
i predicted it would sale 4 million seems like could do way more
What in 1 month?
naaah,life time sales.
That is a lot of sales for one month on a new ip
Hmmmm it's been one month, then sales usually drop off, but it's still selling quite well on a week per week basis. You could be right though.
the most overrated game in history,i love the game but... It's the same thing over and over again. I think it got overrated for the facial Animation,the story is not deeper and better than RDR.
Sure as hell doesn't deserve that many sales. Apart from the facial animations, the game is garbage. Never been so bored playing a game.
It's a great game, certainly nothing to complain about! It could have done with something else though, for everything it gets right it is missing a certain wow factor that could have made it a truly epic game. It does feel a bit samey, and I hope that if they make a sequel that they dramatically improve certain aspects to it. The story is great, I love the fact that you are playing as a cop as that is something we rarely get to do as we are generally overloaded with gangsters..... I like the investigation side of things, but it did leave me with that sense that there was a piece of the puzzle missing! Maybe it is because the gameplay doesn't quite live up to the story telling, or the lack of other things to do outside of the story, or just the repetition side of it! But then I think Assassin's Creed felt a bit like that, and Assassin's Creed 2 seemed to resolve those "samey" issues quite well. When is all said and done though, it is a great game, and although it might not be for everyone, and it might not get everything right... it has definitely pushed gaming forwards in the bits it does get right!
... Okay. I found Halo boring. So that game doesn't deserve its sales either. Hurray for dumb arguments!
^ I agree
Wait, I could have sworn I read articles stating that the sales for this game were sub par. The internet sure is full of dumb people.
The development costs for this game have been much higher than most, so I think R* needed a lot higher minimum sales to make a profit.
Yeah but that doesn't take away the fact it sold damn well in its first month. While money is always the objective, with L.A. Noire they created a experience never before seen.
Rockstar might have needed to sell more games to break even
Glad to see multiple disks and lack of exclusive content didn't hurt XBox 360 sales of this brilliant game.
Sounds about right, the game is good and combined with the rockstar name you get an almost guaranteed hit.
but how much profit will it make?
It's gotten great reviews. The reviews have been too good, in fact. I'd expect the sequel to sell less unless some changes are made and more variety is added. I lost interest and still haven't finished it.
Yeah, it is a great game, but it fell into that Assassin's Creed 1 trap..... But Assassin's Creed 2 was soo much better and addressed those issues... so I'd imagine Rockstar will learn from it!
that wasn't me.
I loved the game till about 95% through where it just turned into a 3rd person shooter :(
wow the xbox360 and PS3 sales are almost even.
Well,it's a great game and it deserves it's sales.
Agreed, i have only played a little bit of it so far, but so far its a blast. Almost reminds me of Phoenix Wright but with some shooting involved in the middle xD
Its a great game I need a couple of cases to finish the game I love the game I'm hoping for a sequel.
