In the first week of sales of the latest game of the Batman series, Batman: Arkham City has sold 2 million copies out of the 4.2 million of the total copies that had been shipped.
See I just left an article where people were all up and in a rage about pirating! If you make a good game it will sell and you will make lots of MONEY!!!! Congrats to Rocksteady and all their hard work is paying off cause B:AC look great!!!
Very true, but imagine how well this game (and many before it, and soon to be after it) would sell if pirating didnt exist. I can imagine it would have been at least 15% more sales launch week, and at least 25% more sales over the lifetime of the product. Though you are right about how if a game is good, (and has the right marketing) it will sell and ultimately make lots of money. Though i can think of plenty of games that were good or great that didnt sell nearly well enough, but thats for many other various reasons.
Still gotta get my copy..
I got mine day one, but didnt start playing until 2 nights ago... its amazing. If you plan to buy it, do it asap. Absolutly worth it.
Damn near everyone on my list is playing this game. I feel sorta left out.
I know what you mean.I pre-ordered mine from amazon but they have some stupid delay or some thing and it's not even shipped yet...-___- normaly amazon is awesome but this sucks.I'm feeling soo left out :( even tho I pre-ordered D:
Really? When did you pre order? I got mine release day. I ordered either late August or September.
early october,I don't get same day for pre-orders on my Amazon though.but normaly every thing comes in 2-3 days and it's been almost a week and it hasnt shiped :(..but I still love amazon the books I ordered on monday will behere on friday -_- BUT WHERES MAH GAME!!!!
So far its my GOTY. But there is still SKYRIM
I'm hoping Dark Souls gets game of the year but I doubt it will happen.
Yea that's not happening. They deserve more recognition though.
You know there is no one definitive 'game of the year'? More than one game can win an award like that, becuase nearly every single publication does its own GOTY Awards, with all staff feeling differently about different games and giving awards to different ones. GOTY isnt a fact or anything, its s group of peoples collective opinions usually based on a voting system.
I am late to the Arkahm universe, JUST picked up Asylum after work today, will probably pick up City closer to Christmas. Had the chance to play Asylum recently for a little while and I was blown away. Better late than never:)
You will be really pleased with Arkham Asylum it's a really great game :D
Asylum is great, I waited over a year to pick it up because I had little to no faith in Super-Hero games and thought they hype was just there because it was Batman but I have to say it's one of the best game to come out this gen for sure. I can't wait to get AC but it'll prolly have to wait till X-mas as I'm tight on money and I want to get Uc2 and BF3 first. The sales for AC are well deserved and I'm sure it'll do much better in the long run.
Still waiting for pc version... It better come with free dlc for the wait.
Newegg.com is having a special....as always! many of their PC parts are being sold along with a free copy of batman AC PC. I just built a PC for a friend and the SSD drive i bought him will come with a free Digital download voucher for B:AC. Free Games FTW!
I haven't tried Asylum yet, Is it worth it?
Absolutely Park Ji Sung. Should be able to get it for cheap as well.
Imdeed it is worth it as the Emperor has forseen.
Yes, it's damn good.
Easily GOTY!! amazing graphics story characters gameplay tons and tons of content replay value plzzzz plzzz plzzz make a 3rd game!!!!!
Well deserved, finally we get not one, but two amazing batman games.
Fantastic game, I'm sitting at 67% complete and have a long way to go.
2 million gamers have good taste!
Well deserved Rocksteady...great game (even the training missions), loads to collect, one of the best titles this year by far
