I think the opposite would be the case where gamepass kills physical sales.

neutralgamer19921014d ago

I think that's what he also meant to say

JackBNimble1013d ago

Keep paying $70 a game then, and how did this turn into games pass ?

Are you on a propaganda mission lol?

TheDoomedGuy1013d ago


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.

"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.

Smok911014d ago (Edited 1014d ago )

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.

TheColbertinator1014d ago


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

got_dam1013d ago

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.

camel_toad1013d ago

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.

porkChop1014d ago

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.

Shikoku1014d ago

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.

annoyedgamer1013d ago

Gullible people believe whatever narrative is fed to them. That's why the market is in shambles.

porkChop1013d ago

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.

Shikoku1014d ago

good now maybe they can add the actually game into the tech demo.

Biomutant received a surprise release by THQ Nordic on the Nintendo Switch and while it has various compromises to run on Nintendo’s now aging Switch hardware, it is still good fun.

Good for them, I miss games like this is, was rough at some points but by now I feel it must have got better. Maybe I'm just a sucker for fuzzy things like Ratchet and Clank, and the old Conker and Jak/Dax games. Don't know, just reminds me of those times.


Biomutant – Three Years Later

After launching three years ago in a relatively disappointing state, how does Experiment 101's open-world action title hold up?

I played it on the PS5 in 40fps mode and it was pretty decent. Looked great, gameplay was a little but clunky at time, and fairly repetitive, but there's a large map to explore, LOADS of things to do, and you're a gun-toting, kung-fu'ing racoon !!
Accept the game for what it is, and you'll have a good time like I did.

Can't speak for how it was at launch, but the game I played was a 7.5/10
