Well according to Sega Merch representative the game has a strong start:
What he will give us is this: "Though it is still early days in the retail life of the game, we are seeing very strong week one sales and being the best shooter on the Wii means that we think we will see this game out there and selling well for a long time." And when we press him for specific sales projections, he declines, saying only that SEGA does not release those numbers.

We can always point to anecdotal evidence which backs up Ratcliffe's claims -- specifically, reports of The Conduit selling out at retailers and lots of talk about the game on message boards and blogs, both of which are good signs. Sales tracking site VGchartz projects that the shooter amassed sales of nearly 100,000 units since it launched, information which cannot be verified until official NPD reports hit in the near future. What can be verified, however, is The Conduit's strong online presence. SEGA has previously said that online activity for the game is very high, which suggests that Wii owners are, in fact, picking the title up and connecting to play against others.

They are clearly lying. They wouldn't admit to the game flopping so it clearly must have.

I know this because the internet told me.

Yea, there is no way this game did well by selling only 150k in two weeks. Sega is just trying to save face. You'd figure after 3 flops, they would learn to stop trying to promote "core" Wii games anymore.  I have never seen a company lie so much, the game was a bomb.

 

Trust me, I'm on the internet.

No matter what he says, it's the internet and the fanboys who chooses if the game is a flop or not.

Told you even numbers this good would still get comments about flopping.


It sold the same amount as Haze and 40K less than Too Human. How can that be considered anything other than disappointing.

First, the sales you see now are Americas only. Second, the drop-off from week one to week two is much steeper for the two games you mentioned than for Conduit. Conduit will have great legs and will sell more than either of those games in the long run. Thanks for playing.

And it didn't cost $25 million or $70 million.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Plus, just for the hell of it: Kelly Brook at the 2008 BAFTAs

I agree Timmah!, this'll sell more than 1m quite easily imo. Judging by the sales of House of The Dead Overkill, which has made a profit according to Sega, I'd say that Sega are halfway to making a profit after only 2 weeks worth of sales in the States alone. The impressive opening sales of a new 'hardcore' game with a new IP bodes well for The Grinder imo. Publishers will be fighting tooth and nail for it assuming that Sega haven't already done a deal for it depending on sales of The Conduit.

The marketing guys from High Voltage Software have done a stellar job, and shown that viral marketing - when done properly - can work really well.

Thats pretty disappointing given the hype, genre and install base.

Actually with everything considered these are pretty good sales. It will have legs and the game opened at a much bigger margin than most hardcore third party games and its a new IP. The online play is addictive and will keep new buyers coming.

 

Besides does VGchartz even track amazon right? Amazon had The Conduit in the top 20 selling video games.
