Heavy Rain sold a million in about 4 months with even less marketing than Wake.....sorry ...but wake is a FLOP

Alan Wake had less marketing and not only that it was also one of 2010's most pirated games so cut the crap.

1 Dante’s Inferno (1,280,000) (Feb. 2010)

3 Red Dead Redemption (1.060,000) (May. 2010)
4 Halo Reach (990,000) (Sept. 2010)
5 Call of Duty: Black Ops (930,000) (Nov. 2010)

History does not record piracy figures.

Good to see it do 1m but is has been in the bargain bin for a while, I know because  I was looking to get it for someone (but afterwards  thought it might be a bit too "grown up"for them). Back then a brand new copy at Amazon was for less than £10.00.

Selling it at such a low price (and I don't think it was that long after release) isn't good for the developers and from what I have seen of it, they deserved a decent financial reward for their work.

I hope at the very least the developers broke even.



Games with the name Gears of War, Halo , and Call of duty only sell well on xbox. BTW this game was a definite flop no doubt. 5 years come on....



heavy rain sold 2 million weeks ago



I trust no one, not even myself.

Y'know that pubs cover the cost of the game especially a pub like MS and pay the developer. So Remedy has already made out fine.

Microsoft is still footing the bill though :3



Sig thanks to Saber! :D

Took it long enough...

Good to see it achieving these numbers. It came with my new 360 Holiday bundle (yeah, download code...), and I really enjoyed it, I still have to beat it, though.

You making excuses for the game doesn't make it any less of a flop in comparison. It's sad what happened to Alan Wake, but the faults mostly fall onto the shoulders of the developer and the publisher and those faults shouldn't be used as excuses. 



Bet with Conegamer and AussieGecko that the PS3 will have more exclusives in 2011 than the Wii or 360... or something.

Fingers crossed for #2, first was pretty awesome. Although the gameplay mechanics got a bit annoying by the end I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

 

OLD GODS OF ASGARD RULE!@@!@!@!



Old gods of asgard rocked . The part with the stage and getting drunk listening to the album was great. It was a  great game and I felt like I was reading a book. The story was in depth and one of the best stories in a game that kept me at the edge of my seat.



Good to see AW cross the 1 million non-bundled mark. Add to that the 1 million dlc tokens  included in the holiday bundle in the US (check Forza 3 US holiday numbers which were counted) and it's done pretty well after a slow start.

Definitely hope they make a sequel to AW!

Don't really care if it was a flop or not...it was a good game.  Probably my favorite 360 exclusive outside of the Mass Effect series.  Great story-telling and atmosphere.  DLC was great too.  Hope a sequel happens.
