Not really, GOT had 83/100 and did great sales.
Once it goes on sale it will go from $70 to 50-60 and a lot of people will jump into it. Meaning more profit for everybody (not the gamers sadly).
I said "far more" day one sales, not that it can't sell well at its current rating. Thats based of $60 making people more comfortable testing the waters and the metacritic being higher as a result of lower price tag (since it was brought up in several reviews). I also wouldn't compare it to a game like GOT which had far more hype.
200k at $70= $14,000,000
250k at $60= $15,000,000
Sony should reserve $70 for games which either have huge budgets, or games with such obvious appeal that there is no concern about that the price tag dampening early success. This is neither. Its made by a team of 75 people (so not crazy budget wise) and every time its promoted on social media there's immediately a wave of comments questioning its price tag which I think may unfortunately stop it from being the huge runaway success I think it could be.Last edited by Otter - on 29 April 2021
