Ever wonder how many copies Microsoft buys themselves?
Like how many would you guess they have sitting in some warehouse?
I remember a while back when they had a sale on a bunch of titles and they were practically giving them away.
Took them weeks to sell out even when they were like 10 bucks.
I told people and they all cashed in but I kept an eye on availability just in case more people wanted in.
Basically I wouldn't be surprised if they buy a couple hundred thousand copies alone.

Sure they try to re-sell them but think about it - the money goes right back to them when they buy them so it's cheap advertising.
The publisher gets a piece because they are sales but the primary goal is the illusion of "sales", and yes, they get reported and bragged about to the media.

Boy, games on 360 really outsell the PS3 version

Yes, because selling stuff at a loss does wonders for profit. That is how all successful businesses work! /s

DrFUD, you think too much or think the wrong way about microsoft or other businesses.
Has it ever struck you that people actually do buy all of these copies? I mean, if microsoft really did do what you're implying, there would be no way the xbox division would be posting record profit and revenue with each consecutive quarter.

LMAO, i love how he tried to cram his whole pointless rant into one space b/c he only has one bubble.

So Im guessing I cant preorder the PS3 version lol.

Blasphemy - I thought PS3 owners would learn by now and not give Kotic any money.

If you can not treat both systems equally then thats a no purchase for me.

gamingdroid2480d ago

Does that apply to BF3 and Bioshock Infinte as well?
