The Sales of Payday 2 have Single handedly reversed a 15 year financial loss, in one fiscal quarter
Good or bad Goddamn
in a good way towards a certain point. 15 years in the red, any other company would sell themselves before then...
Great game and lots of awesome updates.
See DEVS if you make good games people will be inclined to buy them.
Sadly that is not true .. look at PlatinumGames.
Overall majority of PG's games are good(or at least score well) but their biggest problem is either platform choice or marketing. Having people cosplay at gaming events is great but the average consumer don't go to these events. For the eight games they've develop I hardly seen any ads of them that are out. I just now found out that Infinite Space existed.
@zeal0us I think he is saying that they do make good games. But, they aren't selling and the great games for Wii U and coming out for it are also not selling the system as much as they should be.
so there will be payday 3
I hope so. I really liked Payday 2 and their is certainly a lot of things to be improved upon and added.
Not for a while Starbreeze signed a 2 year contract with Overkill to support Payday 2.
Makes me wonder how much sony offered them to put this on ps +.
That was the first Payday. It was such a good game that it generated interested in the second, that hype contributed greatly to the sales of Payday 2.
Payday 2 was free for US PlayStation Plus members in February.
Never had any interest but looks like I should have downloaded it. After watching the trailer and a couple videos.... looks like a blast.
I thought the second was just on discount, I know the first was on PS+ like a year ago.
All because of good pricing on digital versions, continued substantial support after release & free as well as paid DLC options. Other developers take note!!
But they made the awesome games The Darkness and Chronicles of Riddick games. How could they have been in financial loss for 15 years?
Because 99% of gamers are stupid morons who won't even consider a game that isn't AAA with a Metacritic average of 9o+.
Thats pretty sad. In saying so, I would love if Starbreeze made another Riddick game.
Precisely. I bought Darkness used for $10 and wound up saying that I should have bought it new when it was $40 so Platinum Games could have made money from my purchase. It wasn't worth $60 but it was definitely a good $40 worth of quality. Now I'm trying to find more games that I overlooked so I can see who to support by buying new and who to not bother with lol.
Its not like they constantly were in the red this was after a total of 15 years. They had some years where they were in the red and others in the green it just so happens they finished in the red after 15 until they published Payday 2.
My apologies for being anal about this, but the correct term for making profit is being in the black, not the green. Why is it black? Hell if I know, green makes more sense to me.
I'd like to see Starbreeze make the next Borderlands.
good to hear. Starbreeze is a great studio. The Darkness was and still is one of my all time favorite games. THEY NEED TO MAKE ANOTHER!
Awesome! Fingers crossed for The Darkness 3.
