'Bulletstorm proves there's a market outside Call of Duty' - Codies

CVG - The critical and commercial success of Epic's Bulletstorm proves "there's a market outside of Call of Duty" for FPS titles, according to the man behind rival shooter Bodycount. (Bodycount, Bulletstorm, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

No crap that pretty much what a lot of people been asking for a game that isnt taken seriously, it is a video game afterall

I thought
most people bought it because

a) Epic had a hand in it
b) It came with the Gears 3 beta

B is what happened. Look at the sales, 360 raped. Only because of the beta

that game was horrid and written by 3 year olds

which was not developed by epic. nice try, come back next time and you might win then.

People Can Fly make amazing games. Bulletstorm would have been much better if Epic hadn't decided to add stupid cover based gameplay where it didn't belong, and let Bulletstorm be a hilarious, revamped Painkiller on crack.

bulletstorm sales were pretty low lol. it had a pretty big marketing campaign and is just hovering around 1m sales

Yeah, it tanked and was expected to do 3 million+. Meanwhile, Vanquish sold just as much without the massive ad campaign, relying on word of mouth.

Bulletstorm isn't the only non-modern shooter FPS on the market.But it's still a great game,which proved that shooters with a protagonist who doesn't take himself seriously can still win critical acclaim.

Sorry, cvg, all it proved was there was a market for the GoW3 Beta and that suckers will buy anything.
