Debut NPD sales data for Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection has been revealed.
Nice sales for only 4 days
This collections was never going to light NPD up. Still, nice sales. I'm just glad they made it and I can buy it(I did).
Not light NPD up?! Dude, that's 92K in 4 days, on 1 console. Some big name, big budget releases don't even sell that well. That's downright impressive!
Yea, this very, very good. I'm so glad people didn't just ignore it. Seriously, this just goes to show how open and diverse the PS3 audience is.
@StanLee 92K in 4 days isn't "downright impressive" lol It's decent at best, but that's about it.
I know I'm one of those..
When i went to get my copy from gamestop it was sold out, i never preorder games to avoid being left out so it was a shock to see it sold out but luckily Target had one copy left... Not bad at all for and HD remastered PS2 game, but honestly this game is still better than many games today.....Just BRING ON LAST GUARDIAN!!!! @ xPhearR3dx It sold more than half of what Resistance 3 did (180k) in 4 days.....thats something to be said
yeah this game outsold shadows of the damned and child of eden. Nice I think for a remake that's really good.
I got my copy
Finally, Team Timeless/Ico are getting a little recognition.
Has anyone else noticed the building in the center of the art at the beginning of the game? You scroll past it at like 100 mph, but if you go back and forth as you pass it, you can make it out. It isn't a building from either game. I think it might be a teaser for TLG and maybe an indication of where it is in the timeline.
I bought it in Oct. at Best Buy for $25, very happy with that deal
There was a coupon in Gamer magazine for $10 off, I got it for $15 ($20 if you include cost of the magazine).
Touche, I was lazy, if it was like $10 off I woulda done it though. The extra $5 wasnt enough motivation for me lol
Lol, it's all good. I was willing and ready to pay $40 until the associate told me about the deal.
gaming on a budget FTL! I had to choose between this and GoW Origins and had to go for GoW for obvious reason of preference and I just got Resistance 3 the week before! I will definitely bring myself to play this gem. maybe this month. I plan on buying BF3 much later or maybe not at all but there's still Uncharted 3 coming Nov 1st! damn...it's so great being a gamer right now but limited budget is killing me!
Same here, I still have to get a copy myself. Can't wait though. SOTC is a hell of a game, never played ICO though so that's going to be interesting to play.
and i think overall it did 300k world wide. Hopefully it will do well for team ico they deserve every sale they get. ico looks great but SOTC looks beautiful must have for fans who missed out like i did on ps2 comes back to the same thing can't wait to get last guardian
i'll definitely buy this when i run out of game to play, sadly this wont be for a while.
Got this at Best Buy for $15 but more like $20 since I paid $5 for their magazine just for the $10 off.
got it from amazon along with GOW collection for $40
Already sold more copies than Ico. Well done, Sony. Probably the best HD-remakes yet.
I bought it day 1. No platinums in this game for me.
i bought this on day one. still haven't played it though i'm still playing assassins creed brotherhood. i'm looking forward to playing it in HD mode.
Decent sales for LEGENDARY games.
best remakes so far. ico looks better than shadow to me. the detail in ico is just astounding. good job sony
Ico runs at native 1080p that's why. Shadow renders at 960 x 1080. I recommend playing SotC in 720p for a cleaner image :)
i'm picking this baby up. just to play ICO.
I'm playing ICO as I type this and I'm a little angry that it took me 10 years to play this incredible game. A true classic.
bub for your taste !!! I feel happy when gamers appreciate this type of games. those are the games that kept me playing video games and I really appreciate Sony approach to take risk and create those gems.
I have yet to pick this amazing collection up, too many games have come/is gonna come out, in the next few weeks we have Arkham City, Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3 and Skyrim aaaah! :P already bought this year: Mass Effect 2, Killzone 3, Infamous 2, Resistance 3, Gears of War 3 and some more I can't think off atm. Need to pick up GoW collection Vol. 2 also hehe.
Good job Team ICO now just keep working on putting the best quality possible for The Last Guardian.
Awesome ! I'm among those 92,000...also bought them when originally released on the PS2.
I'm glad more people are getting exposed to these games. Felt good to play through them again. Hopefully now more people are familiar with Ueda's vision and will experience TLG now, too.
Good news, this like all ps3 exclusives will keep selling upto christmas middle of jan is a good time to get an idea how these titles really were received.
Nice sales for remastered games.
Last Guardian,hmmm Sony money counters are probably nervous.
300k world wide isn't bad if it get's upto a million it would probably cover the last guardians development budget.
This game is on sale at Best Buy for $25 plus there is a coupon to save an additional $10. I might just have to pick this one up.
i play this game on ps2 Ico, i was so scared in the game i gave up those shadows wher scary lol...now a few years later am ready for this game.also 2 games ,i will get this.
i havent bought my copy yet, thanks to dark souls
