Epic dropped the ball.

"Gears Of War: Judgment sold more on one platform than Bulletstorm had on three, but with just over one million copies sold it still underperformed for Microsoft."

"It [Bulletstorm] was a critical success but sold just under a million copies; for publisher EA, it was a commercial failure."

VGC has it at 1.24 million. so its a bit overtracked?



Ouch. What was the name of that old thread that was comparing gears of war: judgement sales to god of war: ascension?



I am the Playstation Avenger.

   

Just over 1 Million?

1.25 Million here, with Bulletstorm at 1.5 Million.

Both overtracked or Gears just right?

Bulletstorm seems more like below 1 million combined.

The GAF thread: Gears Judgment sold just over 1 million copies, Bulletstorm just under 1 million

I read the article and I can't be sure Bulletstorm sold less than 1 million so I make the thread title here just saying Bulletstorm sold less than Gears.

Bulletstorm was a MUCH better game and I didn't think that highly of Bullestorm... so...

I'm pretty sure you're the kind that doesn't like FP/TP action adventures that much.

well, you would be wrong.  I'm a huge fan of halo, gears, uncharted, etc.  I just really hated judgement.  I bought it day 1 and traded it in after 3 weeks.  People who aren't fans of the genre don't buy games day 1.  

Edit: In fact, I own 52 FP/TP action adventure titles between my 360/ps3/wii which accounts for just over 60% of the games I own...



The franchise has run its course. The trilogy is pretty much done. Epic needs to make another game based off of the gameplay of Gears and keep evolving the style.



I don't think Epic dropped the ball here. It wasn't marketed like a mainline title and wasn't supposed to be treated like one. Though 1 million is substantially lower than the 2-2.5mill I once thought it would achieve, I think it's naive for anyone to have expected Gears 1-3 style figures.

Come Gears 4, the sales of this game will matter very little.
