Locked: "LBP Will be HUGE"...

Forums - Sales Discussion - "LBP Will be HUGE"...

I'm not wild about the idea of posting in a thread in an attempt to sway opinion by showing which group can outshout the other, so to speak, or to cheat myself up. I tend to post in a thread to either state my opinion of the op has asked for that, or to refute something I believe facts contradict.

I've often felt that many pro-ps3 poster come into threads that simply make assertions they don't care for, and pollute the thread by trying to overwhelm it with opposition opinions. Not cool.

 And I've often felt that many pro-360 users like to try and prove their point by generalize the pro-ps3 community by a select few optimistic individuals... (anyone see what I did there)

LBP was huge... I don't see how 500k in one week isn't huge. Since when is selling half a million in a week not good.

 

You answered your own question. 500k in 1 week(which is being generous with week 0 addition) is good.

It's not huge.

If 500k in 1 week + limited release is huge, what is 1 million in 1 week?

What is 2.5 million in 2 days?

500k in a week is good. Fallout 3 sold more than that on the 360 alone.

Fallout 3 sold very well.

I wouldn't classify it as huge.

Huge is a lot bigger than big.

LBP might be big. However, comparing it to many other games over just this last month that have dwarfed its sales, even calling it big is a generous classification.

 

Maybe I should question your classification system. Serious question. If LBP is huge, what is Gears 2? Classify it.

 

 Though this clasification system is a bit stupid I'll humor you. GeoW2 is obviously monsterious. And no one was denying that..

Hey, I know it was stupid. I was walking around for a week like a babe in the woods everytime I heard "LBP will be huge."

No one could explain wtf they were talking about.

Now it appears that we've adopted the "average" "big" "huge" "monsterious" classification system. It's stupid as hell.

I still think it's just "big" though, and calling GeoW2 "monsterious" is moving the goal posts after the fact to make the original huge assertion stick, lol.

This is the internet, you have to adapt or die, lol.



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.

It's true, lol. A few people make us all look bad. Ain't it always the way.

That said, DMJ just wrote a big confession that he's one of em. Shouldn't you flame him, as well as the 360 generalizers?

NO NO, NO NO NO.

Some Sony guy said it will be huge, there was some thread about it and Sony wanting Sackboy to be their mascot. I would think a mascot game would sell huge (Halo above 8mil and Mario Galaxy above 7mil). Those are long term sales so we will need to wait for LBP but i see LBP being overshadowed by many games this holiday.

Also this thread in a way proves LBP was thought to have a huge opening or there would be no need for this. Where there's smoke, there's fire.

It's a first game. The first Halo sold a respectable 6.5 million over its course of the Xbox. Mario Bros was bundled....and bundled...and bundled. So we don't know how it started. 500k isn't all that horrible in comparison that people tend to make for it.

 How many quotes do people need to show other people before they get it through their thick skulls no one expected HUGE sales?

90% of people expected around what it was. Some overestimated some under estimated some where right on.

5% Expected HUGE SALES! like crazymann. and megaman.... and i suggest you read their post history and considering their credibility before quoting their persictions.

5% severly underestimated it. We have seen people thinking 300k, 600k, and under 500k and the kicker their was those were LIFE TIME EXPECTATIONS! In the japan perdiction thread a bunch of people said under 20k a bunch said over 100k... so what?



Check agamemnon post and then check the poll, granted those are lifetime sales but people and I do mean people who need to pick and choose in a poll and submit their choice. So people think LBP will have huge sales lifetime and I did say we need to wait and see what are LBP sales to compare to other mascots like Halo and Mario.

People voted LBP for huge sales, Sony rep has said LBP will be huge and PS3 mascot, a big advertising campaign (commercial after commercial on tv), people needing to make threads and posts to convince other people LBP wasn't expected to do huge sales. Maybe some people said LBP wouldn't be huge but do they outnumber the people who thought LBP will be huge? Credibility doesn't factor in this just the number of people in the community.

 I hate having to quote myself.

And its kinda funny how the polls aren't restricted to non users and a person can vote more than once on them. Don't try to take those polls into an arguement because their credibility is shit.

BTW: before the polls got reset there was one about best selling '08 exclusive. And in the first month MGS4 only had about 12% of the votes months later MGS4 had over 30% of the votes. When it was apperant it wouldn't be. Just people fucking with the polls.
