NPD: Binary Domain sold 20,000 in March

Joystiq: Following its launch on February 28, it seems Binary Domain didn't have a very good March. According to data Joystiq received from the NPD, Sega's sci-fi shooter only sold 20,000 copies during the month. Compare that to the 1.3 million physical copies sold of the other big sci-fi game of March, Mass Effect 3.

Sega will need to rethink their strategy that's for sure

"Sega's sci-fi shooter only sold 20,000 copies during the month. Compare that to the 1.3 million physical copies sold of the other big sci-fi game of March, Mass Effect 3."

Could have something to do with one of them being a quality game and the other being pure crap.

mass effect 3 also got bundled with kinect all over. Not to mention heavy marketing and good prequels.

Okay. Explain Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City's sales. That game got considerably worse reviews yet fared much better in sales. Binary Domain's reviews were decent.

Look here, Binary Domain is actually a great game. Have you played it? No, but you insult it because you treasure your Mass Effect 3. Broaden your common taste a bit and play Binary Domain, it's shooting mechanics make Mass Effect's look like crap.

BTW, i love the Mass Effect trilogy, but give Binary Domain a chance.

Same! It's got a cracking single player. I got it brand new at half price too.

Definitely was better than I ever thought, and the story wasn't to bad.

Online isn't terrible exactly, but you will be getting massacred by lvl 40-50 japanese players alot. Espically if you don't abuse the cover and blindfire system.

Most of my deaths have been from either players rolling and flipping like shinobi at close range with a shotty or short-medium range against a sniper with anything but another sniper rifle is suicide.

Invasion is very fun but gets ridiculously hard at wave 10-15, and no one does anything but tdm and free for all, it seems most of the time.

There were tons of people online when I was playing it. Most of them were foreign though.
