Forums - Sales Discussion - Amazon shows Little Big Planet already a bomb?

Now, I've been saying right along that LBP is one of the most overhyped games to come along in ages..it wont revolutionize gaming as many Sony fanboys claim, and further I've been saying all along it will be essentially a bomb, as I dont think it has much appeal. No, I'v stated it will likely ship 2 million worldwide, almost all first party titles accomplish this. But given expectations, that would be a bomb.

 

Well anyway do we have the first proof I am right at amazon? I noticed LBP is up for pre-order, and is only #76 right now. In contrast many 360 games like Gears 2 and Fable 2 are much higher, and even most PS3 hits  (say, Uncharted, MGS4) are much higher. Resistance 2 is currently #57.

 

I think you have to admit it shows LBP is not gonna light the world on fire, otherwise it would be #1.

How long have you been here Sharky? You should know that citing Amazon ranks as proof is extremely frowned upon and seen as a foolish argument. Please do come back when you come up with something more meaningful though.

And a game made by as few people as LBP is selling 2 million could in know way be seen as a bomb. A disappointment perhaps, but a bomb presumes that there was lost money, which there most definitely would not be.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooo tEh baby seals =/



Amazon the whole world it is not.



I think LBP will be a good game but it will not get the sale numbers that a lot of fanboys are hoping for.

Well, Wii dominates amazon top ten, just as in real life.

 

And the 360 version of multiplayer games always ranks above the PS3 one, just as one would expect.

 

Sure it's not a great source, but it's not meaningless either.



Yeah, you cannot go by Amazon sales.



People are going to pre-order far more from game spot anyway because of the kratos sackboy inclusion



LBP will be huge.



mZuzek loves Starfox Adventures

oh it's most definitely next to meaningless, as most data using a single source is. so you believe that LBP will ship only 2 million in it's lifetime eh? I may take you up on that bet.
