That's great, I'm glad it performed well.

Iroquois_Pliskin2629d ago

not bad, i plan on getting this on ps3 very soon

BinaryMind2628d ago

It may see some good numbers second week as well. Every time I check Amazon Canada, it's sold out.

Theonetheonly2628d ago (Edited 2628d ago )

This game is seriously one of the best ive played EVER.

When i say that I mean i absolutely have no problem saying its up there with halflife 2 on my number one games list.

And a side note if anyone has read the e-book titled "the sleepwalking world" hidden behind a wall in some sewer in the game you will be like WHAT? did they seriously put that in the game?

this ebook outlines the illuminati and the bilderberg group and the corruption of FEMA and the United nations. and also states in BOLD LETTERS that
"THIS IS NOT FICTION THIS IS FACT!!!"
even though this is a fictional story, you could really tell there was someone thinking behind that.

I heart this game so much customization and choices while maintaining smooth continuity, it is unbelievable.

Oh and if on the off chance mone of the eidos employess comes strolling through here reading feedback, i just want to let them know, As soon as the end credits rolled i wanted to thank each and every one of you developers, you absoulutely KILLED IT this game has the game of the decade written all over it. Thank you

fluffydelusions2629d ago (Edited 2629d ago )

Yes, I'm glad also especially considering there was no hype surrounding it or any real form of advertising. Great game and I hope Eidos make another.

turgore2628d ago

I saw ads on tv for it.

XBox 360 owners buying a game with heavy RPG elements -_- guess that puts those rumors of 360 gamers only playing FPS to rest.

"Most of the sales came from the Xbox 360 version with some 348K units, whereas the PS3 version saw 228K units with PC coming in at 80K."

The witchier 2 should sell good on the 360

MysticStrummer2629d ago

It's an FPS with RPG elements, so no it doesn't put those rumors to rest at all.

TheIneffableBob2629d ago (Edited 2629d ago )

No way the PC version is that low.

The PC version hit a concurrent peak of 60k players playing it. That would mean that 75% of people who bought the game were playing it at the same exact time.

Ducky2628d ago

^ I believe those numbers are only retail?

Steam's numbers are usually a mystery... and I know a lot of people (including myself) that pre-ordered the PC version from GMG for ~30$.

evrfighter2628d ago (Edited 2628d ago )

ya its not counting the couple 100k people that bought it on steam

then you also have d2d, impulse, and greenmangaming

CommonSense2628d ago

it was the best seller on steam for preorders for at least 2 weeks. i'm sure those numbers are much higher. wonder why steam doesn't release the numbers though? i'm sure they have a 100% accurate counter, too.

Bigpappy2628d ago

360 always has higher sales with these western type of games. about 1/3 of PS3 sales are in the East, so the istall base in the west is much higer. Look and any popular multiplat and you would see why 360 almost always have higher sales with Westerncentrict games (Madden, DeusX, Skyrim, COD, BField ...). These will all do better on 360, unless the developer insults the base.

Thats great news if true, I love this series and this game is great.

Also, they would have sold even more if you add in all the digital sales on PC, probably a good amount.

REALgamer2628d ago

Very glad it's doing well. Just finished me first playthrough, and already wanting to go again!

I've got it on PC, but the controls are so well mapped to the 360 controller and it's not a twitch shooter that I'm using a controller with it.

For anyone wondering about a typical play time, my Steam profile listed it as about 26 hours for my first play through (easy difficulty....I know, I know, I like to play through without dying the first time in most of my games) doing most of the side missions.

There are lots of different ways to approach each mission however. It was often when I'd cleared an area out that I'd find hidden vents, security terminals and more that would have given me a sneakier or more strategic option. Exploration is definitely rewarded!

showtimefolks2628d ago

and was super excited its my most disappointed game of the year. I could careless about graphics or anything else but when you are playing aggressive all the AI has to do is shoot you 2 times and than another 20 seconds of load time.

in this game either the AI sucks or they have perfect vision sometimes you can walk right by them and they won't react and sometimes you are sneaking and they will see you with their perfect shooting vision

BOSS BATTLES ARE A CHORE AND THE WORST BOSS BATTLES IN ANY GAME IN 2011. THEY ARE FRUSTRATING AND AFTER THE 1ST YOU YOU WILL WISH THERE ARE NO OTHER BOSS BATTLES

ITS STILL A 7.5/10 FOR ME I DID HAVE SOME FUN BUT FOR A GAME THAT WAS IN DEVELOPMENT FOR SUCH A LONG TIME THESE THINGS SHOULD HAVE BEEN SORTED OUT

kramun2628d ago

I can't say I had any of the problems you did. Maybe you're just not a very good gamer, lacking some of the skill needed to play the game well, and also the augment that shows you their fields of view.

I agree about the bosses, but they don't spoil the game that much.

And you also don't need to use caps to try and get your point across either.

snipes1012628d ago

Hopefully this gives them motivation to take less than eight years to put the next one out.

Wizziokid2629d ago

it was an amazing game, just rolling a second playthrough now to get the trophies i missed

SnotyTheRocket2628d ago (Edited 2628d ago )

Same, I'm on Give me Deus Ex mode, the 2nd boss glitched and never moved, so I shot her repeatedly with a revolver till she died. I WIN.

REALgamer2628d ago

That's what happens when your augmentations get a virus!

RedDead2629d ago (Edited 2629d ago )

I rented it(didn't finish it tho). First game im gonna buy when I have the money. Great game. Was a bit worried about the Auto kills replacing Melee combat but it ain't really a big problem, it just holds it from being better than the first

BrightFalls762629d ago

The auto kills are what ruined the game for me. Not only the "auto kill" but the cut to black before and after really takes away from the game.

MysticStrummer2629d ago

I respect your opinion, but completely disagree.

cjflora2628d ago

I agree, and I also didn't really care for the fact that when snapping out of cover there was no animation, and you were just instantly staring at a wall. It's a decent game, but things like that can take me out of it as well.

maniacmayhem2629d ago

It deserves every sale. I'm having a blast with the game...

I also said this before but i'm abusing the hack glitch which makes the game even better to play.

AO1JMM2629d ago

Good job! It was a great game.
