HEAVY RAIN PS3 SONY Feb-10 219.3K

Not unexpected for the end of the generation and in such a stacked month.
Ouch, didn't realize HR was THAT far ahead. Did beyond have any significant day 1 digital presence on PSN?

I feel bad, like I should run out and buy a copy. Poor Ellen. Maybe Sony should have "leaked" more nude images

Eh, I think if you consider the worse reception, the lack of novelty in terms of mechanic, release timing, and the generally depressed market it's still a bomba, but not unexpected that it sells worse.
Its not, but still.

Its kind of insane how Sony is throwing all of its lambs to the slaughter. Wait for the 200k gt6 month.

I don't think Beyond is available on PSN.

I still can't believe GT6 is a game that exists and is launching only for PS3 in December AFTER their next gen console has come out. I understand wanting to keep supporting your platform, but the gen has already dragged on too long and GT5 was already a good enough GT game on PS3 to tide over to a next gen sequel.

Europe's where the GT money gonna be at.

You are so salty. Sorry non Mario games don't sell at all on the Wii U.
lol, judging from that Olympics game's sales in the UK last week, it looks like not even Mario games can sell on Wii U either.

Poor 3D World has an uphill battle ahead of it :(

With the budget it had, it seems so. Should not have launched at that time....although secretly I like to think people realize David Cage can't write.



The people who buy Sonic games typically aren't the people paying attention to this. Look at Sonic 06,
People knowing that David Cage is a hack at writing is not a secret.

Wait for goddamn Tearaway. I don't know why they're doing this but the 22nd is one of the most packed days for games I have seen, and it's directly against Zelda and Mario party.

Very strange. Didn't the Sonic Racing game do well on Wii U?
Welcome to the launch drought experience. Then millions of people worldwide forgot they actually even have WiiU's. GamePad's sensor bar is actually MiB tech clearly.

Factor in PS3/360/PC/XBONE/PS4 as potential platforms without an exclusivity deal and still having that WiiU version and Sega walked into a building that is on fire to sign such papers.

Mario & Sonic Winter Olympic Bomba is the cherry on top of the entire fail-cake. Who knows what the third game is. A looping FMV of Sonic coughing up rings into a toilet with an IOU taped to his butt if they can afford it.
Loving that classic 'Pie and Beans' phraseology. 10/10 Would read again lol.

So no sign of Winwaker HD after its retail launch.

GAF assured me that it would have a huge audience. I'm sure some will hang on to digital numbers until Nintendo releases that information.

Hopefully this will force Nintendo to think twice about charging too much for an glorified HD port.

Don't worry guys, Wii U will sell 4 million next month in order to meet Iwata's projection of 9million this fiscal year.
