Sony reveals Detroit: Become Human sales.
Congrats! This game is real GOTY (just my opinion)
Its time for me to unwrap this game. I just finally finished Nier:Automata. Great game by the way.
Still need to play Automata, weirdly enough I already listen to the OST a lot :D
Nier, GoW and Detroit are superb.
Lucky. This is high on my list, the gameplay videos I've seen look superb. Just need to clear a few games rn first
This game surprisingly made my top 10, potentially top 5 games of all time just based on those "gasp" moments.. You cannot truly appreciate this game's ingenious story arch unless you have multiple playthroughs choosing different options.. it's crazy how things tie together and can go completely in different paths.. insane game. Wish more people gave this game a try!
We all have our opinions and yours is a perfectly reasonable one to have. I think it's a great game. It's really nice to see different kinds of games be financially successful.
I really liked it as well. Its so unique and the story and graphics are superb. Just a great unique experience that you really don't get from other games...
I’m playing this game now and it’s great
Thank you. I will get it soon.
An interactive movie is your goty? To each his own. But man, I rented it
An interactive movie that has a lot of choice to change narrative. It’s way more effective than telltale game.
Eveyone has his own taste. I enjoyed every second of that masterpiece, that's why. Even you have your personal GOTY and i will respect that it's your opinion.
bitter xbox owner with no games.
Very nice! Deserves more though.
Good job guys
Love to see that despite all the controversy BS this gem still managed to succeed. Haters tried so hard to bring it down.
David Cage can accomplish that by himself.
And yet, none of his games have been 'brought down' (all of the last three games were commercial success stories).
@BehindTheRows What makes this really impressive is that the budget for D:BH is only about 35 million.
But why his game was successful ? Can you tell me that or you just making an excuse ?
@BehindTheRows+UCForce "all of the last three games were commercial success stories" Shame he can't write something of similar quality into the game itself. Heres thing about David Cage games; they don't succeed because of him, but despite him. "But why his game was successful?" Oh that's easy to answer. Big budget more than likely used for good actors. His games don't really feature any stereotypical game mechanics that would require strenuous testing to feel right so a lot of the time can be spent on presentation. Visually he's good at creating small impactful scenes but some are ridiculously retarded (like the Canadian border scene). But even then he writes lines into his games that not even the actors can sometimes salvage. But you know what? Detroit had a very good combination with Connor and Hank and I was really ready to say maybe Cage is improving... But nope. Turns out that the actors for those characters did a huge amount of improvisation and Cage wasn't happy with how they turned out. So even the best part of the game you can't give him credit for. So to clarify that award for best performance? Despite of Cage again. Now I'm aware you don't like long comments so I'll leave it there for you UCForce <3
You made a poorly statements. And I knew you made another excuse. Just like you doubting way too much on God Of War success.
You must be fun at parties./s The game still did well. Your biased hatred won’t change that.
@UCForce "You made a poorly statements. And I knew you made another excuse. Just like you doubting way too much on God Of War success." Gave you a reason and you can't respond. We call that dodging pal. What was poor about my comment? You gave no reason so you've got no substance to back yourself up. I'll give you a pass because it doesn't look like english is your first language but you're clearly unable to make a point to challenge what I've said about David Cage. I answered your question as to why his game was successful. Now move along kid. @trooper "The game still did well. Your biased hatred won’t change that." You didn't disprove my assertion though did you? David Cage is not a good game designer and if you believe otherwise back it up. Otherwise it looks like atleast 9 of you disagree but cant zctually tell me why im wrong. Thats quite telling.
@ Tekolie: His games have been critically and commercially successful, so he is in fact a good game designer. That's where you're wrong. You're welcome.
@Nyxus "His games have been critically and commercially successful, so he is in fact a good game designer." I just gave you an example where his game received an award for a performance that contained a lot of improvisation. He even admitted he didn't like the performance these two actors did for the game. Connor and Hank were easily the best-received characters in Detroit by a large margin compared to Markus and Kara. If Cage did such a good job how did the best scenes in the game not come from him directly? Why was the improv work the part that was critically acclaimed?!?!? The part of the game that strayed furthest from Cage's vision is the CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED PART! "That's where you're wrong. You're welcome." Learn to read. The game was critically acclaimed because of the actor's and not because of Cage. As i mentioned previously the one consistently good thing Cage does is the presentation. However, when it comes to the substance it's always lacking (especially in wacky endings he thinks up for his games).
Agreed! Also love seeing the SJW virtue signaling that was taking place with Battlefield V is backfiring big time. Game is crap, and is tanking. Also wanted to recommend Beyond Two Souls. Play through the beginning of that one and I think you will find STRIKING similarities to a certain Netflix series. Ahem Stranger Things....
Pretty nice for a game like this.
Any success for games with a non-mainstream approach is great. Love seeing variety succeed. There was a time a few years ago where it looked like everything would become an FPS...
That's awesome for this type of game
Gratz glad more people got to play this even with haters talking about it. Hoping for another awesome Sony exclusive from David Cage and his team.
Not gonna lie, I bought it, but I haven't got around to playing it yet. I played the demo and that's what sold me on it.
I did the same thing, I bought the game day one to support the dev's and Sony, but I've only played the opening demo section. I have to sit down one cold winters day and play, feels like it would be a great story from what I've read others say.
You will love it. There are so many different outcomes too, so the replay-ability is there.
Given that it's so story-driven, you really shouldn't start it until you have the time to see it through without abandoning it for extended periods. It's great though. For those that don't have it yet, you can get the physical copy now for $35.
how does this compare to previous quantic dream games?
From what I could find, it took Heavy Rain and Beyond about 2 months to break 1 million copies sold while D:BH broke 1 million in 2 weeks.
Actually, in a little over a month, Heavy Rain had exceeded 1 million. https://www.gamesindustry.b...
It's the best one. The writing and acting is great.
It took heavy rain almost two years to hit two million
@behindtherows from an article on push square
I’ve not seen any article stating that, even after Googling it. Edit: Push Square had nothing, but GameSpot mentioned that it sold over 2 million in a 2012 article. https://www.gamespot.com/ar...
@behindtherow go to the actual website it’s in the article about Detroit selling two million copies
If you're talking about sale, it's the fastest selling. If you're talking about gameplay it's Detroit. If you're talking about story I'm going to go with indigo Prophecy.
LOL I'll never buy this. It's lucky it sold that many but I guess with all the advertising $$$ I'm not surprised. It's just another 1player Sony game that takes itself way too serious. No thanks.
Nice try, but development budget for this game was 35 million and marketing budgets often don't exceed that, with COD being the exception. Sorry to see that you're so traumatized by the fact that people like this game and it's a success.
Yes, another singleplayer game, that's a good thing.
Sony just keeps proving that there a bunch of folks out there who love those "1player" games.
Then you lost your argument. I hope you enjoyed the modern online gaming because publishers don’t care about your value and you going to feel sorry for it.
Go play some Call of Duty
Let me figure this out: 1) Play 1 game over and over and over again such Fortnight/PUBG/Insert other Battle Royal title here all year. Or 2) Play those but PLUS suspend those games when other quality AAA games come out: Monster Hunter World, Shadow if the Collosus, God of War, Detroit Become Human, Spider-Man, and Red Dead 2. And then resume Battle Royal. 6 games just to name a few this year you're going to pass up all for the sake of continuous Battle Royal? 🤮 I'll quit gaming the generation that that atrocity falls upon gamers.
Then go play your one millionth carbon-paste copy of CoD. No one will miss you.
Time for me to get this gem.
Fantastic game, its honestly my GOTY, but I enjoy heavy story games with lots of choices.
Another game I need to get
By far QD's best game, in my opinion. Story and characters were top notch.
While Detroit was a much better scripted game I still feel Heavy Rain was QD's best overall.
Oh man, I loved Heavy Rain as well. Such a great game.
I actually was pretty surprised by Detroit, the Connor and Hank segments were great and it is my favorite Cage game because of it.
Fantastic news for a fantastic jewel of a game! It's crazy how many variables there are with Detroit! Truly the pinnacle of choice driven games.
Detroit 2 please
Sadly that's unlikely since David Cage stated in an interview that he doesn't do sequels. :( https://www.eurogamer.net/a... granted this was 5 years ago but there hasn't been anything to indicate that he's changed his stance on the matter.
Can you just lie to me and say otherwise, pleaseeeee
A beautiful game, I am glad games like this exist.
nice! Have it in the queue. Played the demo and was impressed. Detail is insane.
Still want to give this game a whirl... seeing as it is now bundled with Heavy Rain and Beyond:Two Souls for only $40... seems like the perfect time
I just bought this game for 19.99 on sale. It’s so good I feel like I need to give Sony another 40 bucks. I’m tempted to try heavy rain after I finish Detroit. Such a good game never thought I’d enjoy it this much
I feel the same way after finishing Detroit felt I might need to play Heavy Rain.
