Tretton: Heavy Rain will sell “incredibly well”

Forums - Sales Discussion - Tretton: Heavy Rain will sell “incredibly well”

Incredibly well for an adventure game? Probably.

Incredibly well in an absolute sense? Probably not.

That's what they all say.



                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Booked an early finish to get this today. Gamestation had 1 copy left and it was a preorder. Went to GAME and 2 people had it waiting in the queue and 1 guy was getting a heavy rain, pro evo10 slim bundle. Granted its only Bolton but I wasnt expecting it. Just waiting for my kettle to boil then I'm gonna give it a go. Two friends have been winding me up while I was grafting this morn because they had it, ba*****s lol



Ynwa.

Based on VGChartz 300k FW thoughts then I would consider that a damn success for this game. Deserves alot more. So much better than playing the same genre over and over.

Looking at you FPS!



SCEA president Jack Tretton has said he expects Quantic Dream’s Heavy Rain to sell “incredibly well”.

Futhermore if you can find a copy on a shelf anywhere in the world he will give you 1500 bucks for it !

And thats a JT Promise !

I think it will sell very well indeed.

 

Over 1mil would be good in my books.

 

Just because it doesn't appeal to kids doesn't mean it won't do well, theres a huge buzz about this round my way from anyone whose got a PS3. The only people that don't seem interested in it are the Xbox fanbois who haven't played the demo or haven't looked into it.

 

It's something fresh and new, something gamers have needed for a long time. I haven't seen anything truly "different" since the PS1 really and heavy rain hits that spot once again. It might not be the best game ever, it may be flawed, but its still new and different and that excites a lot of people.

 

I think you'll find it does better in "others" than in America, but it will do well.

Its an adventure game Jack.

"its rare that you see a game that sells incredibly well and that impresses you" - no it isnt, what is he on about?

Yes its.

Certain type of games have certain sales expectations, and when a game sells well over that expectations

that's rare & impressive

well thats not what he said.

lol - I know.  I think it's what he meant to say, though.  I kind of like Tretton because he seems to have these odd speech patterns where he drops words from sentances, which I just find strangely amusing.  He always seems to drop the single, vital word that would actually make his sentances make sense.

 



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

Neither did I.

 

And I found about 10 dusty ones back in the time. I would have a nice car already if Sony guys would speak seriously :C
