Seems like we meet on a middle ground of bomb and success, with something that achieved their target but not enough for sony to want to keep with them. So for that purpose it could be said that it bombed.

It's a franchise that should get another go. 

They gave Knack, GOTY, another go, why not to The Order, right?

Thanks for posting this chart.  Wow, what happened to the Wii in 2008?  I wouldn't have even thought they would sell that much due to normal supply limitations.

Mario Kart Wii was released in April 2008.

Also, the supply situation for the Wii was intermittent. It actually steadily improved in sales from April to October of 2007 without any sort of price drop, which suggests steadily improving stock. Then in the Nov. '07 - Jan. '08 period, it wasn't really doing considerably better than the 360, with Q4 '07 having an abnormally low percentage of the year's sales, suggesting insufficient stock during the holidays. Then sales started to rapidly spike in Feb. 2008, with the Wii posting the best non-holiday sales of any home console ever in the U.S., selling a whopping 5.7 million units from Feb. to Oct. that year. The only thing that comes close to that was the PS2, which sold 4.52M in the Jan.-Oct. period of 2002.

 

Thanks for the explanation.  This was before I started following the data, but I remember Wii being supply constrained for the first couple of years.  Basically Nintendo started ramping up supply in 2008 and all the pent up demand resulted in huge sales.  (Also the release of Mario Kart sure didn't hurt sales either.)



2018 and 2019 will be the paradise for gamers, thanks PlayStation! :)
The sales figures are absolutely earned.

I can't remember an AAA 1st party SP focused game that bombed for PS4...

I don't know if Gravity Rush 2 counts as AAA (it has gorgeous graphics and a lot of content), but I doubt that it met sales expectations. :(

Gravity Rush Remastered & Gravity Rush 2 are two of my favorite PS4 games, but I fear that we will never see a Gravity Rush 3 or Gravity Rush VR.

I don't think it qualifies as AAA even if a good game.

Gravity Rush 2 is not a AAA-Game ^^ I think the developer is currently working on another new game, but not Gravity Rush 3.

Maybe someday... hope it for you.
