Sales must have been pretty bad.
Sales must've been very good.
According to VGC its at around 320k, not sure if that's good or bad. But i'd say its pretty decent for the amount of hardwares currently sold.
All I know is that this seems like a slap in the face to those that actually bought the game as it was so recent, not even a month old game!
It's only free for 24 hours. So not really a slap in the face. Seems like a move to boost sales.
But then buying a Gold membership is still cheaper than buying the game plus get all the goodies of being a gold membership. But I think alot of the buyers would have already had the Gold membership and wished they just waited.
