Or people like it because it's pretty much what they expected.  

The negative reaction it got upon release suggests it was indeed overhyped...

The negative reactions only existed because of the hype.  Its funny how we try to make the negative reations more meaninful than the positive ones.  This is an indie game.  It was as Sean said self funded and developed by a tiny team.  The results are amazing considering.   The wave of negativity can blind people but thats why I recommend watching streams.

Funny how only the negative reactions matter and the positive don't count.  If you like this game it seems it's only because you were tricked by hype and not because it's enjoyable to you.

It's insulting.



l <---- Do you mean this glitch Gribble?  If not, I'll keep looking.

Agree with this statement.  I like it.  I don't get hyped for games like that so for me it was the actual gameplay that made me want it.    Between PC and PS4 the game will easily clear 2 milion units sold.  There is no doubt in my mind that they will invest their earning into making this game even better.



Tagging, that boost for Mario and Sonic though

So is the >100k for NMS actual sales or just what people are thinking?

It's official.

100-125k is the correct range.



2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 11m, XB1 4m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, 9m PS4 and 3m XB1, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

Ah ok thanks, 

Edit: NVM misread.



I know they hyped the hell out of this, but expect A LOT of copies hitting the used shelves in the next couple of days. I can't imagine chavs enjoying this.

good for no mans sky, personally i'd never buy it at full whack but pushing PS4 further forward is always good to see
