Kinect Star Wars more popular than The Witcher 2?

Some gamers might argue there is something insanely wrong about this, really can't keep a good jedi down or a game using a franchise so popular that it will sell regardless.

Very sad...Uk 360 owners rather buy some kinect garbage instead of The Witcher 2...

Well you need to realise the console demographic. Kids generally dont like serious RPG games, i hope CD Project have learned a lesson.

Watch how well Kinect games are selling. MS knows this, which is why they are promoting Kinect so much.

If they want to cater to the Console crowd they should make a Shooter like Mass effect, with minimal RPG elements. Also they need to make it so one button moves do big explosions, that would sell instantly.

I bought star wars kinect over The witcher 2.

This is not because i think SW kinect is better since i know for a fact the witcher 2 is better. But i dont like jumping into a sequel without playing the original. So im basically hoping the first witcher comes out for the 360 soon :)

It's also sad they prefer KSW over those boobs.

The Witcher 2 has only sold 200k on Xbox in 2 weeks while Kinect Star Wars has sold only 600k in 4 weeks. They both flopped.

I think it's a bit early to declare either of those a flop, but 600K in 4 weeks for a game that screams low budget must have turned a profit or at least broken even.

Sadly The Witcher 2 has had a lot more love poured over it despite it essentially being a PC port.

give the witcher 2 time, one of the best games ive ever played. i think the game will have legs as it gains new fans.

ya dont worry about the witcher 2, its already made money on pc. The 360 version is just gravy.

Once again another example of how this day and age mediocrity and popularity rule over quality. Sales figures mean jack shit and are not a testament to a games worth. Star Wars has been proclaimed to be utter trash while Witcher 2 has been heralded as a great game yet is selling less. Star Wars should be another nice addition to the morons who play sales, not games. Although it seems both arent selling at the rates expected.

its about brand recognition and word of mouth. Also most people dont expect the same things out of games than the "hardcore". Most people just want something fairly simple, straight forward, without too much story and most importantly something fun. Reviews are pretty much meaningless, as they are written by obsessive gamers who cant relate to the average joe. And reviews are also useless for a hobbyist such as myself, since gaming isn't a replacement for my life.

Its the same thing with music, movies and books.
