LBP dropped to 66K in NA (3rd week) , good or bad ?

Forums - Sales Discussion - LBP dropped to 66K in NA (3rd week) , good or bad ?

The sad part is that the people on this website are so assdeep in their own opinions, they are unable to hear anyone else but themselves. As I said, this game was sold out in the shops near me. Part of that could be because I live in a bustling metropolitan city. The other part could be that they are only able to print up and package so many game discs in the time since the game was recalled for the Koran issue.

Why VGChartz member commentaries and analysis are all worthless: you (or the overwhelming majority of you) enter these discussions with biases and predetermined conclusions. As scientists and analysts, you fail. As fanboys, you win.

It'll be fine. People in this thread want this game to fail. Thats the sad part.

Not as much as Halo 3 they didn't.


jsf, the point of these forums is to talk about news and stuff. Discussing numbers or business strategy is obviously not on the menu.

is it really suprising since 1 its a new ip so most consumers wont recongise the name on the shelves and 2 the amount of hot titles out this week like gears 2, resistance 2, naruto ultimate ninja storm, and a few other titles

Around the Network

what is surprising is the vgchartz audience.

isn`t that a 2nd week in reality?
anyway, 66 is NOT good.
BUT, not many people can afford 5-10 games in 1 week,
neither not much people can afford 15 games per month.

Everything will be fine. =)

well guess what your LBP prediction will actually come true....

unlike ALL your other horrible predictions

What predictions are you refering to? I dont make that many. The ones in my sig are doing alright.(Banjo Kazooie is probably optimistic). And dont mention Kingofwales sig. Ive addressed that.

My Fable 2 prediction was very close. Gears 2 nearly spot on. And my HD gap predict is moving the right way at least.


That's not very good. Pretty shocked at this actually. The 2-3 mil predictions might not come true but that's what I expected anyway. I'd say 2 mil is the tops it can get LTD. It certainly won't hit 3 mil or more. This isn't MGS4 we're talking about.

Oh, and LBP isn't casual. It's not core either. It's a BRIDGE game. Like Mario.

uuuh... NO! This game is generated towards everyone it may be in the casuals category but there are plenty of people that are "hardcore" that bought this game, not just kids and girls, so seriously quit while you can, you just sound misinformed, which you are!

Hmmm, a game with mediocre sales at best has "plenty of people that are 'hardcore' that bought" it?  Explain to me how that works - from a non-fanboy point of view...

There's no doubt this game was marketed more towards the casual crowd.
