Biomutant, the open-world RPG from Experiment 101, has sold over one million copies and made its costs back within its opening week.
Wow, and that without GP.
I think the opposite would be the case where gamepass kills physical sales.
I think that's what he also meant to say
Keep paying $70 a game then, and how did this turn into games pass ? Are you on a propaganda mission lol?
@jackbnimble I do believe this game came out at $60 if not less. Definitely not 70. @pitbul brought up gamepass not @roadkillers But he probably did that because of a recent article that mentioned the majority of sales came from PlayStation aka not gamepass.
@roadkillers "I think the opposite would be the case where gamepass kills physical sales." Come on, really? what else would it do? seeing as, you know, kind of, perhaps, gamepass is a digital service..... maybe....
Would it still not have made the same amount? Seeing as though xbox gamers do not buy games? And Biomutant is also free on EA Play Plus, a same service as gamepass (only their version) does that not also "kill physical sales"?
Did anyone here like the game? I was looking forward to trying it right up until it came out and most critic AND user reviews kind of trashed it.
I loved it. It turned out to be the game I was expecting so I wasn’t disappointed at all when it came out. Still confused on what people were expecting from such a small development team and the game in general. If you can grab on sale which is easy now, it’s worth a try if you ask me. I almost let the poor reviews keep me from getting it and I’m really glad I didn’t.
"I almost let the poor reviews keep me from getting it " Imagine all the great games we'd miss out if we listened to reviewers.
@thorstein Tons of cool games or unique games that could have used more development time were trashed by overzealous reviewers. War of the Monsters, Alpha Protocol, Mafia 3 and EVE Online come to mind immediately
Same story with days gone. It wasn't trashed completely, but the reviews would have you think it was aggressively mediocre. I absolutely loved that game. I'm waiting for biomutant to go on sale before I buy just in case, but it looks interesting to me.
Thanks for the info. I think I will pick it up then.
I played it closer to release and wound up disliking it. It came out of the game in such a sloppy state.
That's actually surprising considering how many years it was delayed. I figured they'd need a lot more than 1M units sold to cover that.
well when you dont spend millions on ads and promotions on TV and other places you dont need 5 million units to make your money back. I dont know why people believe the AAA publishers and companies.
Gullible people believe whatever narrative is fed to them. That's why the market is in shambles.
Who said anything about AAA publishers? The game was supposed to be out years ago, so it was obviously over budget. It's not unreasonable to think 1M units might not be enough to cover development costs of a game that saw so many delays.
good now maybe they can add the actually game into the tech demo.
Added to my "steamdeck" list
Are they still planning on going a next-gen upgrade to the game?
Wow good for them. Their studio was like 20 people that’s a nice split. Make another one using everything you’ve learned.
Going to check this out when the PS5 version drops
Half those sales are from Furries
Will buy holiday season. Should be very cheap around then.
Yet another developer this time of a non aaa game which was criticised heavily. Also confirming that they made their ENTIRE costs back in a SINGLE WEEK or less. Any numpties out there want to make a fool of themselves again by repeating the same old corporate garbage about inflation not being fair and old N64 games costing more than they do now.. we should be happy they’re increasing prices, the poor developers and publishers,… right??
