U.S. software sales for Deus Ex: Human Revolution in its debut month have been revealed as well as numbers for NCAA Football 12.
244k? Is that all? Expected more by all the hype this game has been getting.
Remember it's getting the hype from reviewers/gamers on forums and not the average Joe on the street
Its only the sales for 5 days.
NYC_Gamer beat me to it. All I can say is after having played through the game twice using different approaches, the game deserves recognition as well as the hype. It's a pretty good game.
Good job for Deus Ex. It will probably get a top 10 chart placing next month.
With Gears and Resistance and other new releases in Sept? I doubt it.
This is inconsistent information. Unites sold where? In the US, UK, Europe as a whole or globally speaking. Also, consoles only, PC only or all together?
It's not inconsistent information, you just don't know what you're talking about. It is I thought well known that NPD track all games sold on all platforms sold at retail in the United States, they however do not track digitial download copies for PC for example. If you want to know more, just google search NPD research methodology. EDIT: It even says in the article US Software sales, so how about you take the time to actually pay attention to something.
Thanks for the enlightenment. Though Steam sales as well as digital purchases weren't listed.
The figures for DE:HR. if correct, are on the weak side. This would be the first five days, including pre-orders.... NCAA Football 12, in its second month of sales, was only 4,000 copies behind the top spot. Perspective: L.A. Noire sold 1.6 million first 7 days. (new franchise and a tough sell). Fallout 3 sold 4.7 million first week. Crysis 2 sold over 600,000 first week. (not including downloads).
