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:

I hope this is a joke.

Although I consider myself having a rather wide sense of humour, it was not a joke. Why would it be anyways?

Maybe because it bombed even HARDER on the PSP?

http://www.vgchartz.com/game.php?id=35592

Yeah but it's a port.

The PSP already proved it could sell a GTA game:

Because it was in the beggining of the PSP launch. Piracy wasn't that bad back then. Too bad the system is plagued  by piracy now. I can guaranteed you a GTA game would not sell today.

Despite R4 flashcarts, the DS still managed to at least sell a million copies of Chinawars.

I'm sure Chinatown Wars on PSP sold several million copies on PSN like MGSPW does. No PS3 or PSP games would ever sell bad cause we never know PSN sales and every game is selling like hot cakes on PSN.



MikeB predicts that the PS3 will sell about 140 million units by the end of 2016 and triple the amount of 360s in the long run.

Way to understand nothing.

A couple of things about your DS bashing.

A. You've got your tenses right. The PSP COULD sell a GTA game, it certainly can't now. In fact, right now, the PSP can sell nothing. Not a thing. No games. These sales are pathetic, and this is the best and largest games coming to the console for the forseeable future. At least the DS can cause games to make a profit. With the PSP, the games cost more to make, and sell like shite.

B. The damn game broke a million units. Do PSP games do that anymore? Note the plural.

C. Digital sales are a copout. This is a handheld.

D. I wonder if the 3DS can sell GTA games? I'm sure we'll find out.

E. So GTA sells a million units on the DS, and it's a bigger flop than Peacewaker setting at 50 thousand US? lol digital sales.



I don't need your console war.
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor.
You're power hungry, spinnin' stories, and bein' graphics whores.
I don't need your console war.

NO NO, NO NO NO.

Woah first of all, where did I bash the DS? I own a DS (and no PSP) and I like it so take a pill.

A. I really don't want to get involve into a profit argument as I personally don't know the budget of the games.

B. Well Agito and BBS are sure bet. There's probably more to come. LittleBigPlanet might eventually reach 1 million. Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines sales are very good too. But in general it's true that the games are selling much less than they used to. Might have something to do with piracy and PSN sales. I don't know.

C. You don't know that.

D. I will be glad if it will believe me.

E. So you're comparing a lifetime sales of a game VS a month of another? lolz

didn any of you noticed??npd sales are for united states...where as vgc data is for americas...so i think vgc data is right only..188k units till now

The rest of the "Americas" market doesn't sell as many games as the US though...it's definitely overtracked.




Ouch that isnt good

That's not exactly true. You need the specific kind of game to sell tons, like this one:
http://gamrfeed.vgchartz.com/story/80883/pes-2010-sold-600000-copies-in-growing-latin-america-sw-market/

But in the case of MGS Latin America and Canad don't make much of a difference.

Yeah like the others said, the rest of America is not that much. But 52k does not include bundles nor digital sales. It's probably (surely) overtracked though.
