It's like you don't remember E3 flash sales, holiday sales + every so often got big discount. The game was on top during these months due to that. No need to be an insider, just observe Amazon and NPD threads.
If you just wanna point me as a downer, then do so. Fact is the game sold really well. Fact also is that legs are also due to heavy discounts and bundling.
Not a downer but something that the mods should look at. With no identifiable information to back up your claim, you're just throwing nonsense out there to downplay the games success. Pretty much a straight derail.
Only at vgchartz can discounting can be seen as a game doing badly...and now used to gague the success of a game, let alone a new IP. Its insane.
