lol threads keep popping up about the success of elden ring and fanboys are so butthurt its doing well they look for anything to downlplay its success. game is selling gangbusters. game of the year once again from soft.
What’s this made up narrative?Amazing news. Hope this tell industry how important art direction are to games.
Can't really understand why Sony fans are so salty about.
Its your tone, and the way you typed itWhy has barely anyone bought Babylon's Fall?
And, yeah, a person talked about Horizon, I mentioned its prestige among the industry. Don't know why that's bothering you.
The game has prestige. That doesn't undermine ER's. At all. It's just a fact. Stop being triggered over stuff that wasn't said.
Stop assuming things.
You read the way you wanted to and we all know why YOU did it.Its your tone, and the way you typed it
You made it a big deal of something that is so simple, for people to understand.
Those two people often create fake narratives in their head.What’s this made up narrative?
The souls series started on PlayStation and the PS5 is the only platform you can play the full lineup. Are you pretending this game has been adopted as a game on a different platform? Because the 2 best performing versions are PS4 bc and PS5. Not to mention the best selling.
Do you assume the UK split is the same all around the world or do you have a source for global split?
Where is that 5m Steamspy number from?
I see 10m-20m but the site is highly unreliable anyway.
Estimates based on number of reviews like the one steamdb is showing are more reliable these days.
Halo is free to play and probably doesn’t track the digital sales of the campaign (dlc) vs the physical combo retail sales. It still charted platform specific. Same with Forza. Forza Horizon 3 (pre game pass) wasnt some combined chart topper either. They’re still successful games…
No one is getting triggered.You read the way you wanted to and we all know why YOU did it.
It's on you.
Again, stop assuming things and stop getting triggered.
Everyone that has been reading the OT knows I'm constantly there and playing ER, I'm lvl 75 and 42h in, str/fth build, using the Rusted Anchor as the main weapon. So stop embarrassing yourself any further with this.
HFW had 9 days for sales on NPd, while Elden ring had 2 days.
That is why elden ring sold less on PS last month.
Hfw started to lose sales once elden ring comeout.I'm not contesting that. But it doesn't really change the fact that HFW outsold it on PS platforms in February. I agree that if they released at the same time or ER came earlier, it'd of been #1 on PS platforms for the month as well.
Still though it's interesting to consider, given there are some folks online (mainly just rabid console warriors) trying to spin a narrative that HFW outright bombed or died at retail, just because of Elden Ring hype. Both games have done very well, just that one did insanely well compared to expectations, is all.
You replied that, to a comment that was explaining why elden ring sold less on Ps.Yes, to say sony games have prestige. Now just stop replying to me. I don't want to proceed with this any further. You're replying in very bad faith.
Which explains why halo infinite wasn't on top 20.It says, " * Digital sales not included."
This means Dying Light 2 does not include digital sales.
2 days sales. That is how big elden ring was. Imagine 7 days sales.Xbox took february with Horizon and Gran turismo coming out?
SOnys chip shortages must be in dire levels to not have hardware for the month of those releases.
Also, Elden Ring kicking ass in the US too with one week less sales than horizon. Booyakashai From Software, good for you.
What are you talking about?Which explains why halo infinite wasn't on top 20.
The game is mostly digital. So the sales won't be included on that list.
From UK sales, we found that xbox is 85% digital.
Usually most sales happen through mouth to mouth. HFW didnt get 2-3 weeks to let that happen.I don't think "losing sales" is the best way to frame it? I mean most AAA blockbusters do a giant bulk of their sales in the first week, do they not? Doesn't mean they stop selling or struggle to clear large volumes week-by-week.
Elden Ring going viral and getting tons of hype doesn't mean HFW died at retail, it's not possible to make that type of correlation. The game will continue to do fine over the next few months; most of the technical issues were quickly resolved in patch updates and the game itself is high-quality stuff. I think there's enough space in the market for it and Elden Ring to thrive even if Elden Ring is the bigger seller of the two.
Also I don't think online conversations mean that much necessarily; it definitely does help for WOM, but some of the biggest games out there don't get a lot of social media traction. Counter-Strike, Dota 2, LoL etc. don't dominate social media, but are still doing extremely well.
If that is the case, then I am wrong. I interpreted that tiny line, as sales doesn't contain digital sales.What are you talking about?
Only games with an asterisk do not include digital sales. The only game with an asterisk on the Xbox list is Dying Light 2. That means Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 are included.
You’re 100% correct. Some people create false narratives or put words in out mouths. These people are always with bad intentions right here.I mean, who’s upset with having best selling exclusives AND best performing multiplats available? Not me. My PS5 is being used so much it might actually get the mythical coil whine
And I have HFW on ice.
PS has $500 and $400. Its also selling as a bundle too. Xbox has XSX $500 and XSS $300, also bundles too. Unlike the ps5, Xbox has all access plan, which makes you pay $25, $35. Switch is $350 oled, $300 regular, and $200 for the handheld version.
Same Pattern for UK and US
