Many may have scoffed at Kinect Star Wars with its mediocre review scores and that fun but chilling dance mode, but the week one estimated figures suggest that mediocre with a franchise attached can equal sales.

There's been so much advertising for this game I'm surprised it hasn't sold more.

As for average games in gaming. Well we need them so the triple A games look better.

56 metacritic is average, wut?

rdgneoz31951d ago

Only the US tends to think that average is like a 75...

Rainstorm811951d ago

Yea 56% is a F.....Star Wars has failed the ratings game

Average to Msxbox-world.....when it's a 360 exclusive. Especially if it's a Kinect game.

I'll bet they lost money on it between development costs and the TV ads that come on every 10 minutes on every station I watch (TruTV, A&E, cartoon network, TBS, comedy central, etc).

"According to VGchartz"

I'm still holding out for the demo myself, but it still looks like relative fun, just not convinced it's anywhere near as good as it could, or should have been.

It's called the casual market.

By the way, I have no idea why you have disagrees.

I'm flabbergasted. I didn't think this game would reach 100,000 sales LIFETIME lol. But I guess there is a market for stuff like this. Bout to go look up some vids of people doing the han solo dance haha.

Of course there is I mean the advert makes it look amazing to the average gamer. Only real gamers can see what its really like. Star wars on rails. Saying that hardcore star wars fans may still pick it up.

"the advert makes it look amazing to the average gamer."

Exactly. I think people forget that one of the highest selling games this gen is Wii fit which really isn't a game in my opinion at least.

Core gamers aren't buying it. It's the casuals that are buying it, thus the Kinect Star Wars sales.

We sell this game where I work and it is the only title I have ever seen that is marked "Non Returnable" on the receipt. Keep in mind a opened computer is returnable within 15 days but if you buy Kinect Star Wars and open it, you're stuck with it.

That should tell you something.

I don't care about the so called reviews. I am a fan of Star Wars and this is a fun game.
