I expected it to make money when I saw that it was actually selling a decent amount.

If I started selling a good amount of sandwiches with ingredients I found in the garbage can and just added a little bit of my own spicy mustard to cover the rotting smell, then I would make a good profit too.

Always bet on the duke.

I want that this Duke game would be profitable a lot, so they could make a real new Duke game from scratch :)

Well, Take-Two has said that they do plan on doing more Duke.

A poor game profitable and huge anticipation. A sequel is almost confirmed.

It will be a bargain bin title or most likely rental for me.

good, now we can get a proper game!

I don't know. I thought that in this day and age. Us gamers would want something with more substance instead of mindless shooting games. The guy's first name Duke, last name is Nukem. Is there anyway possible way it could get any cheesier than that? :)
