Locked: Will LBP flop?

Forums - Sales Discussion - Will LBP flop?

300k life time is a flop but i find hard to belive that it will do that bad.



 

Around the Network

NOT in this galaxy.

Come on, any reason for LBP to flop?
Btw, if game takes 40GB, then there won`t be downloadable version? This is good, since for now VG don`t track online sales, and GT5P is still near 2 mln. sold, while in reality it could already passed 3 mln., who knows. =)

Anyway, user friendly, unlimited user generated content, support from Disney. How can this fail??? =))

The worst what can happen, game might be repetitive, But with user generated content, i think this won`t be a threat. =)

So far, 0.5-1 mln. WW first week in worst case. =)



Every 5 seconds on earth one child dies from hunger...

2009.04.30 - PS3 will OUTSELL x360 atleast by the middle of 2010. Japan+Europe > NA.


Gran Turismo 3 - 1,06 mln. in 3 weeks with around 4 mln. PS2 on the launch.
Gran Turismo 4 - 1,16 mln. with 18 mln. PS2 on the launch.

Final Fantasy X - around 2 mln. with 5 mln. PS2 on the launch.
Final Fantasy X-2 - 2.4 mln. with 12 mln. PS2 on the launch.

 

1.8 mln. PS3 today(2008.01.17) in Japan. Now(2009.04.30) 3.16 mln. PS3 were sold in Japan.
PS3 will reach 4 mln. in Japan by the end of 2009 with average weekly sales 25k.

PS3 may reach 5 mln. in Japan by the end of 2009 with average weekly sales 50k.
PS2 2001 vs PS3 2008 sales numbers =) + New games released in Japan by 2009 that passed 100k so far

We all know the game will most likly be great, but as history has taught us great=/= great sales.

Is there even a market for LBP? Will the game be a run away sucess? Lets take off our fanboy hats and really think about it.

I don't see this game doing very well. Who is the demographic for this game? Kids? Adults? Casual gamers? Hardcore gamers? Are there enough of that demographic on the PS3? Something just tells me that this game will not do well.

 

First week sales 100k

Life time 300k

Is 300k a flop for this game?

 

The game is being hyped as a game for casuals that includes tools hardcore will love. Depending on execution this could either make both groups love it or leave both unsatisfied. If its the former, some of the more optimistic predictions could be realistic, if its the latter, you may be right.

 



I cant wait for this game to come out. Im so SICK of these threads , pro and anti LBP. What will you guys have to talk about after LBP and Conduit are released?

There will be always be a new unreleased game on the horizon.

I don't think so...too many people have said the game is awesome and it looks like the type of game that will sell quite a bit with some hype.



It will be a hit, just not the huge hit some crazy people have predicted (ive seen 10 million sales thrown about, as if)



I hope my 360 doesn't RRoD

2 things might happen..

 

a)

they will find a new game to question

b)

they will talk about their life passing them by.. :C

 

I'd go for A... :P



I think anywhere from 800k-1.5 million is likely. $ony is advertising the heck out of the game.



GOTY Contestants this year: Dead Space 2, Dark Souls, Tales of Graces f. Everything else can suck it.

True, but anything so hyped as these two? It just seems excessive, no?

 

Iron - Yeah true. Or maybe they'll discuss the fine art of midget clown porn.
