What? MM doing badly or the HD games doing badly?
MM, I'm basing on the US sales figure of only 2,141 units.
The HD games, I'm basing on seeing how LBP sold a million, Gears sold sold gangbusters and so did Fable 2 and Fallout....the average consumer doesn't have an infinite amount of money so with all those millions going to those games, something like Mirror's Edge didn't stand a chance
I was talking about MM. That same last statement applys to Wii owners too. I have 5 games I want this holiday season: Tomb Raider Underworld (got), Shaun White, Dokapon Kingdom, NHL 2K9, Skate It. Even if I wanted a generic no name, small developer platformer I wouldn't have the money for it either. Heck Skate it and Dokapon Kingdom are likely to get left out too. And if a Wii owner wanted a platformer why wouldn't they get Sonic instead? Of Warioland or De Blob?
Let's ask a more pragmatic question: Why is such a strong brand as Sonic selling so badly on HD but well on Wii?
