I thought we need to talk about this:
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale sold about 130k copies in the USA. In Europe it didn't even chart properly, but based on UK numbers that are estimated to be around 5k we can extrapolate numbers for the whole of Europe, let's say 20k. This may not be accurate, but 20k is not much anyway. So this means about 150k copies in America and Europe combined. Let's be honest here, this is a MAJOR flop. Not even the typical PS3 bundles will turn this game into a success.
Detractors have long been saying that Sony doesn't have the roster for this kind of game, but the general response was "nuh-uh". Needless to say, the expectations for this game were very high, although some people were more levelheaded in their predictions.
So can we still say that Sony games don't sell on Sony systems? Let's take a look:
PlayStation Move Heroes: 0.12m
LittleBigPlanet Karting: 0.13m
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale: 0.15m, but probably overtracked.
For comparison, Call of Duty: Black Ops II (PS3) sold 4.61m in week one alone.
Dear mod team, a bet must be clearly defined and have both sides agree to the terms, otherwise there is no bet. If you'd like to learn more about how bets work, feel free to send me a PM.
Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.
