IGN: "Peace Walker Sales Difficult To Judge"

C'mon this is ridiculous, MGS:PW is by far the biggest bomb of this generation.


It's not even the biggest bomb without digital sales. This one is:

No I don't think we'll see another PSPgo-like handheld from Sony anytime soon. They said they learned from that failure. Which is good because I hate downloadable only games.

i don't really think they expected anything from it,it was only to study market



So...we can expect BBS, Third Birthday, and Agito XIII to fail as well...

Well Kingdom Hearts might do a little better but yeah I wouldn't expect too much.

3rd Birthday is sure to do pretty bad in America.

I don't know about Final Fantasy. I would think it might do ok because of Crisis Core and Dissidia.

they surely won't fail in Japan

AND we just can't know PSN sales

Sure (well we all know BBS did well in Japan, but not quite as good as KH1/KH2 despite being pretty much the same as a main title), but both KH and FF are international games (and Agito is a XIII game, not Crystal Chronicles or another spinoff). Seeing them not do well outside of Japan is...not good. PSN sales are going to add sales, sure, but not as much as retail. If they bomb at retail, PSN sales won't help them.

A good guess for bundles would probably be ~30k territory.  That accounts for most of the weekly bump PSP saw in sales this month, though not all of it since this month had several big PSP sales ($150 Go or $125 3k at DELL among them).

No clue on PSN, but I'd imagine if sales there were significant (for, well, *anything*), we'd know about by now...


That's a bad guess, we barely hear anything about any digital download sales numbers about anything on any platform. What we got from PSN? 1 million minis - with no breakdown per title, 100k for FFVII in one week - with no regional breakdown, 20k for Burnout Paradise in 2 weeks - with no regional breakdown, anything else? What did we get on XBL? 1 billion profit - with no breakdown on sales of games, I believe we got numbers for GTA Stories, but no breakdown between download and disc. Not even apple releases numbers. 

It sucks.

Atlus said Persona PSP sold 10k digitally in Japan (compared to 120k retail)... and that was supposedly good for the platform.

I'm pretty sure they never mentioned it was good for the platform, you're adding your personal opinion there. I do think it's good though considering Persona remake sold like 100k in Japan, Japan is not as download friendly as we are in the west and it was supposedly not that good of a game to begin with. My point still stands.

The sales result was a positive, Atlus was pleased with the results.  10:1 was "good for the platform" from their perspective at least.

jarrod adding his personal opinion as a fact?? I'm shocked.

You shouldn't take Bomb Walker so personally.  It's not your fault PSP can't sell games.
