No one claimed it was as popular or as big as those games, whoever did is insane... but it is looking amazing and probably will help in sales, just not a huge impact like those games as is common knowledge. Don't say it's overhyped by pointing out it's less popular than the 3 most popular franchises on consoles (FF, MGS and GTA) outside of Halo in the US.
It's no surprise that Lair is less popular then FF, MGS, and GTA.
But it's even less popular then Ninja Gaiden, Assassins Creed and Devil May Cry. That surprised me, if anything it shows that Lair will not be a console mover. People don't seem to be waiting for Lair to purchase a PS3. Its just going to be another "Motorstorm", or worse a "VF 5".
