Fallout: New Vegas Week One Sales In

gamrFeed - "With Fable III releasing next week then the onslaught of Call of Duty: Black Ops, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Donkey Kong Country Returns, the final three months of 2010 should see much stronger year-on-year comparisons than the rest of 2010."

I actually prefer it to Fallout 3. The extra humor is more my thing.

I think the Vegas setting works so well

zeeshan2916d ago

We all knew this game would do well but I'd rather see NPD results than the usual epic fail VGC.

NecrumSlavery2916d ago

I expected a little higher slaes number on PS3, but leave it up to Timed DLC to hurt sales. That is a hit on Bethesda, not Sony.

Neckbear2916d ago (Edited 2916d ago )

If anything, New Vegas fixed what I hated about Fallout 3: Bland dialog and retarded storyline, and replaced it with brilliant dialog and an interesting plot.

Still, then I realized what I hated the most of Fallout 3 wasn't the dialog or the storyline, it was the goddamn engine and gameplay. I mean, god, I'm not even a graphics whore, but c'mon. At least fix the shooting.

Hudahudahuda2916d ago

Fallout games remind me of of the GTA games from PS2. They had freaking terrible graphics and animations but they had so much stuff you could do that you didn't care.

dirtydbz2916d ago

you do relise this is an rpg right ( which means you can aim dead on and miss because of a dice roll you don't see) this is why you get better as the game goes on as your skill gets higher you need a lower number to get a hit

Neckbear2916d ago

Yes, I do realize that. Still, look at S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s shooting. Now THAT'S an Action RPG shooting WELL DONE.


It is not only the graphics, but the fact that the animations could AT LEAST BE DONE BETTER.

But hell, I should say, it's just Fallout 3's premise and presentation that could have AT LEAST BEEN DONE A LITTLE BETTER. Hell, I should say, it's more like GameBryo's Fallouts that simply aren't appealing to me. The whole package is...I don't know how to explain it, but it's something that I simply cannot like.

Is a FPS with RPG elements.

The quest design is RPG like and so are other things.

But RPGs is when combat is decided by stats.

Fallout is not a RPG FPS.

It might be in first person view, and Bethesda might have shat on the series, but Fallout is a RPG series. Viewpoint doesn't make a difference. VATs is Fallout.

Shooting is Fallout for the new generation

From the gameplay footage I have seen, FO:NV definitely seems to have lost the darker vibe of the wasteland. The enemies and weapons seem cartoonish, even the colour palette makes it seem like it was targeted at a much younger audience.

Oh yeah, and digital sales are not tracked, the fact that FO NV is at the top of the steam sales chart, a service which has 30 million+ users...and the fact that it is only one of many DD services....tells me it sold a lot more than that on PC. PC sales 20% retail, 80% digital.

kancerkid2916d ago

And another piece of evidence that it is targeted at children is you can blow peoples' heads off, and there are hookers...

STONEY42915d ago (Edited 2915d ago )

It's not even the blowing heads off thing though. Compare it to Fallout 1 and 2s very dark and realistic tone, and even Fallout 3 somewhat, and you'll see what he's saying. Yeah, there was still alot of humor in the first two, but it was also done in a much darker way. And some of the stuff happening in the original two were just... sick.

Braineater24482916d ago

Decent sales. Not surprised though.

ssdninja2916d ago

Still amazes me how they release such incredibly glitchy games and no one seems to care

mikepmcc2916d ago

People obviously care, as fans have complained, and critics reflected the bugs in their scores. However, the game is still amazing and most definitely worth playing, so this fact overshadows the bugs. Maybe you should play the game first and judge for yourself instead on jumping on the N4G bandwagon of overreacting to everything.

Hudahudahuda2916d ago

Because the game is good. Glitches or not the game is still amazing and deserves the sales. Certainly better than anything released in the past month that's for damn sure.

gamingisnotacrime2916d ago

7 hours in, not one single bug

my advice: put a fan next to your PS3, keep it cool

dirtydbz2916d ago

I had it frezze up on me yesterday and I am about 8 hours in ( it will happen and I have heard it gets worse the further you get in )

Eiffel2916d ago (Edited 2916d ago )

Anyone get the Pimp-Boy 3 Billion? It's AWESOME.

dragon822916d ago

I have it. It is pretty sweet.
