Great movie. Would watch again.

#5 Posted by XboxDone74 (2047 posts) -

Was a great game. Caused much jelly and butthurt which is even better.

#6 Edited by ghostwarrior786 (3279 posts) -

that is good sales considering the type of game it is, imagine releasing a creative game on sh*tbox lol sell under 100k guaranteed.

Great movie. Would watch again.

are u looking for ward to watching quantium break?

For a game of that budget 1M in 3 months isn´t that impressive when you have stuff like Starbound and DayZ on that mark in a month or less.

What you did there...

I see it.

#9 Edited by tubbyc (3646 posts) -

Good news. I've finished 18 of 25 chapters and it's been a pretty amazing experience. It's exciting to think of what they'll be able to do with the PS4.

Fairly impressive considering it manages to be less of a "game" than Heavy Rain (which was enjoyable in the very least).

#12 Posted by Jakandsigz (4512 posts) -

Ok.

#13 Posted by ShepardCommandr (2127 posts) -

really? What's with people these days?

This thing shouldn't even qualify as a game.

#14 Posted by ghostwarrior786 (3279 posts) -

@ghostwarrior786: damn right brother! What about you?

The game didn't have a massive budget. I think the total cost(including marketing) was around $27 million. It will profitable.

Great news. Can't wait for his next game, which is sure to induce a lot of similar levels of butthurt.

It is the next game up for me after I finish ACIV. I like movie games though...and apparently a lot of other gamers do too.

Congrats to Quantic Dream. Another hit PlayStation exclusive. Sony delivering again on dat variety.

So did Forza 5 with only 3 million units sold, compared to 80+ million PS3 sold.

A niche game compared to the sports game. A game like Beyond Two Souls wouldn't sell 500K lifetime on any Xbox Console. Microsoft wouldn't even take Heavy Rain which has sold 3 million lifetime. Look how hard Alan Wake flopped. Xbox gamers just play same type of games repeatedly.

There are also more worthwhile games on the PS3. Though, I found the game to be pretty mediocre.


Beyond Two Souls wouldn't sell 100K on any Xbox console. Different demographics for the two user bases.

You have no proof it wouldn't sell more. So I will take that for what it is. A guess pulled from thin air.

We saw how a game that tries something different on Xbox is received. Alan Wake flopped hard. Guarantee it sells at least 3 million on PS3. Thankfully I was able to get on Steam after Remedy tried to salvage it.

Mine too. It's still sitting in the package I got in the mail.

Yes Beyond Two Souls could sell over a million on the XBox 360. If a games like Viva Pinata 1 & 2 and Kinectimals can sell over a million copies, Beyond: Two Souls will be a breeze.

#29 Edited by JangoWuzHere (15926 posts) -

This game could have sold more if the story and writing weren't so poor. For a story that jumps around time constaintly, it sure is pretty bad at keeping you emotionally invested.

most of it is boring anyway.. Great story but boring gameplay. Heavyrain is way much better. this is the only PS3 exclusive i didn't enjoy in 2013.

Not an exclusive and not a $60 game either so I don't see your point. Also The Walking Dead is zombie game which all the rage right now. Perfect for Xbox casuals.

You were arguing that Beyond wouldn't find success on 360 because differences in its demographic (360 v. ps3). TWD's success on 360 paints a different picture.... Exclusivity has nothing to do with it. 360 users have supported similar games.

The Walking Dead is nothing like Beyond Two Souls other than both being story driven. Microsoft would never fund an artsy game like this.

The games are not similar other than both being story driven. That is where the similarities end. Would Microsoft finance game with premise like like Beyond or Heavy Rain. We already know the answer is no because they had the chance and declined.

You're right, they aren't similar. TWD is a great adventure game with a great story while Beyond is a shitty adventure game with a stupid story.

TWD is the most popular series on TV, of course It'll sell. Gtfo of here with that, it's not a new IP like beyond is. Sony takes more risks than MS, period! Well deserved sales for an amazing game. Let's see how well Quantum Break sells. It's no secret Xbox gamers don't care for deeply story driven games.

Yet over a million people bought it in less than 3 months. I love TWD by Telltale, but I would like to see how many copies they sell at $60 a pop for what it offers. Not many. Totally different ballpark.

Pretty much, but I still found heavy rain and beyond enjoyable. All three games, 4 if I include TellTales's TWAU, offer very similar experiences.

The gameplay is very similar. You wander around investigating different objects which triggers a little canned action, and talk to different characters, eventually leading to moving the story forward. There's the action sequences where you have to respond to visual prompts. Plus the choices made for different comments or approaches to other characters, some of them changing the story slightly, drastically, or just causing different reactions from them.

You're right that MS declined Heavy Rain because of the kidnapping subject matter, but that doesn't mean that it couldn't have sold well on the Xbox 360, like The Walking Dead.
