I knew rockband couldnt have sold so little, add in bundles and the game should be around 50k in the U.S

More like 60-70k in the US alone still a bomba, but not as bad as ioi suggested it was.

What are legs going to do for the Conduit? Get it to 300K in America? MAYBE EVEN 350K OMG!!!

The game looks kinda... bad. It got mediocre reviews. Pretty good graphics, great controls, 1999 gameplay. Well, 1999 gameplay, but with the multiplayer downgraded from local to online. I'm glad it failed; Wii is not about graphics and big ad campaigns to sell a sub-par game.

Meanwhile Link's Crossbow Training keeps selling and selling. Hmm.

BlazBlue PS3 outselling its 360 counterpart is surprising.

Fighting games and Japanese-oriented games both tend to do better on the PS3, relative to the installed bases. It also seems that the hardcore 2D fighting game community has mostly adopted the PS3 over the 360. Street Fighter IV sales were almost even between the two platforms, with the 360 version selling slightly more; BlazBlue has less casual appeal and an anime art style, so I'm not too surprised it sold more on the PS3.
