Forums - Gaming Discussion - Gunman Clive 3DS has outsold the iOS and Android version

Coming from beril on Neogaf:

The 3DS version has now passed the Android version as well. Here's an updated graph for almost two months

The game did get featured on the front page in the eShop in both markets a few weeks ago (day 43) and you can see a pretty clear bump that week, with about 2x a normal week. It's not quite at the same level as getting on the front page of Google Play, during the weekend it was about 50% of what the Android version did on average when it was featured. I guess the market just isn't quite as big, but it also means that your less dependant on getting promoted by the store owner. While it was a nice bump and I'm thankful to Nintendo for doing it, people seem to be able to find the game just fine when it's not promoted as heavily. 
What's really incredible is the legs so far. There's been a few smaller bumps to help maintain the sales; nintendo posting the trailer on their youtube channel, this thread getting reposted on every nintendo website etc, but some of them are hard to see amidst the normal weekend bumps. The game has also been included in various lists on the eShop almost every week. But so far there's hardly been any signs of the sales slowing down, I'm sure it will happen eventually but I'm hopefull it will be a slow decline.

This is good. E-shop might start seeing a lot more smaller enjoyable titles.



 Nintendopie  Was obviously right and I was obviously wrong. I will forever be a lesser being than them. (6/16/13)

Wasn't it always ahead, according to that graph? Dat Android jump

That's certainly good to hear. But what is up with that MASSIVE bump in Android sales? Did it get featured on the front page at that time?

yes



Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

Glad that it is doing well, I had quite some good game time with the game on the 3DS.

This is going to be hard for iPhone-fanboys, who were so sure smartphones would kill dedicated handhelds

Prediction: PS4 will be more powerful and cheaper than XBOX ONE

I love how you ask a question that is stated in the opening topic.  

Would think people would if they have questions, read the article first and see if they are answered before asking.

And yes this means I'm not going to answer it for you.  Sure answering it woudl take less typing than all this did, but I want you to read the article.  Do the work yourself.

I DID read the article, but the bolded part of the sentence must have slipped past me while skimming it. I'm terribly sorry^^

Didn't expect it to outsell the Android version this fast. I thought sales would slow down a bit after the US release bump but it seems like I was wrong.
