It's great that this game is getting traction among gamers. I'm actually really surprised that most player deaths are casued by Phrike. The Fallen in the Fractured Wastes for example, must have killed me so many times, it got to the point where I just avoided them at all costs.

Usually the rocket drones for me

UnSelf64d ago

rocket drones without question. everyone else is paltry by comparison

Flawlessmic64d ago

Those dammm roxket drones with homing missiles 😭😭😭 biome 3 has officially been my wall in this game.

Phrike was piss easy though, cant really see why hes so hard for most.

I have made $13594 last month by working online from my home. I am a full time college student and by just doing this in my free time for few hours per week by using my laptop, I payed off my student loans. Check this out and start making cash online in so incredibly simply way by just following instructions on this website...

this game helps alot for anger control management, I mean you can be frustrated a lot, but since you cant just go ahead a break your pricey next gen PS5 controller throwing it to the floor, you learn control your self very quickly and so you become a better human being and better gamer with Returnal :D

This gave me the feels, because i'had my patience pushed almost to the limit with this game:D luckily i finished it and it was amazing!

Update: im now a better human

FlavorLav0164d ago (Edited 64d ago )

I’m very ok with that bowl of soup lol. I just finished it as well. Still feeling a smile inducing serenity after a job well done, and introspective to boot after that thematic experience to chew on. Man! Phew!

Loved this game. Had a blast with it.

I’m concerned about the sales numbers though. I hope it’s enough for Sony to be happy about and for them to purchase HM. My concern comes from only 8.1 million player deaths. I’m not sure what the average amount of deaths are per player so I can’t make an accurate guess at how many players there are, but my feeling is that it’s well under 1 million based on how many times people are saying they are dying in their play through. Hope I’m wrong or that Sony sees it as the success that we the players see it is. It’s such a great game.

It’s been at the top of the charts for some time . It has done well

Darkborn64d ago

Idk, I pre-ordered the game, but I havnt booted it up yet myself. I heard the previews talking about crashing and bugged doors and stuff so I just said I'd wait a few weeks and still havnt touched it. I'm sure other people havnt either though because of all the hubub of save files and all that. I just didn't want to deal with crashes on a game with no saves.

Knushwood Butt64d ago

Well the daily challenges seem to have fairly small numbers of players these days, but that could be partly due to the fact that 5 Ertel or whatever they are called in English isn't much of a reward for beating the challenge.

jukins64d ago

Most people probably dont even know about the challenges. Just watching people stream it seems people are just playing without knowing what's actually going on. Like keeping an lvl 10 hollowseeker vs picking up a lvl 18 rot globber then wonder why theyre not doing any damage

jukins64d ago

It charted npd top at 5 or something with 1 day of sales recorded vs multiplats like outriders and mlb the show. I it did well

northpaws63d ago

With the limited number of consoles out there for a genre that is not for everyone, I think those are good number. And it is all about the ROI too, it is a good game but budget wise should be smaller because of the limited scope, so it doesn't has to sell as many to justify it.

Nice. Only 30 deaths for me having gotten the platinum. 12,289 enemies killed. Total suit usage is 5 days 17 hours. Pretty sure i died mostly from Severed enemies. The teleport and slash keeped getting me. Handgun with homing and Carbine with raising pitch or leech rounds were my go to beat the game.

Orchard64d ago

Where are the sales numbers? We don't care about stats like bullets fired, times died, enemies killed etc.

ArchangelMike64d ago

Probably waiting for a milestone before they announce the numbers.

Lore64d ago

I unfortunately don’t think they will ever release the numbers for it

Darkborn64d ago

It's been less than a month so far. I heard it was number 8 for April in sales for one day on the market though.

LucasRuinedChildhood64d ago (Edited 64d ago )

They never said how Days Gone sold, and it definitely sold a lot better.

Their expectations were definitely not as high as something like Days Gone though, and this had a much lower budget and low marketing costs.

Knushwood Butt63d ago

Stats such as average number of players per month on Bleeding Edge?

northpaws63d ago

I disagree, these stats are far more interesting than sales number.

Ratty63d ago

Agreed. Apparently everyone here is an investor.

Pricey63d ago

Why don't you tell us what you really think. Instead of hiding behind a question.

lodossrage63d ago

Well the NPD came out, but that would only cover 1 day of sales since Returnal came out on the last day of the month.
