Playstation AllStars Battle Royale with Cheese sells a little over 130,000 in its 1st week or whatever according to VGchartz. Yes i know, VGchartz lol, but they cant be that far off from the actual number. This game is a massive flop. Little Big Planet Karting has sold even worse. Anyone surprised by this???

I hope those numbers increase. I bought and enjoy the game so I want the community to thrive. It's just fun... What more could you ask for with such a game?

Because they really didn't invest much into it in the first place....

Game's alright, too barebones probably should have been a psn release no way in hell is it worth 60

Same, I'll wait for official numbers. I do hope this game continues to sell so we can get a sequel.

I know you like to poop on stuff TC, but this thread is bad, VGChartz, a game with A hype which scored .5 below and wasn't advertised, has bad sales? Colour me shocked, I'm surprised it sold that many tbh. I'd almost call that a win for sony.

LOL Sony exclusive.

Good news. Otherwise somebody would afflict us with MORE of this:o

But then, knowing Sony, theyve perfected the craft of doing the exact same thing over and over again reguardless of how many times it fails, and expecting a different outcome.

So chances are they might STILL afflict more of this upon us reguardless of noone asking for it. :|

#17 Posted by BPoole96 (22785 posts) -

Good, hopefully that makes the price drop faster so I will buy it

that's only 1 region though.

Yeah because we have so many games nowadays that are like smash :roll:

Barely charted in Pal regions, PS3+Vita versions are estimated to have sold 5K in the UK for example.

I wasn't referring to PSABR, I was referring to Sony's habits of trying to force feed its lackluster first party titles down the throats of a market that didnt ask for them.

See Killzone, Resistance, etc (all platforms included). Guarrantee we see a sequel reguardless of how poor this game sells because Sony wants to FORCE nostalgia and Nintendo esque "mascots". :roll:

So you don't want Sony to give us original IP first party titles.....  You can't be serious. What exactly do you expect them to make for the PS3?
#24 Posted by darkspineslayer (19566 posts) -
This is probably going to be the type of game that sells about the same over a long period. Not a huge blowout like CoD. I'll probably pick up on Boxing Day.

Thats not what I said. I look foreward to The Last of Us (though unlike cows my hype is at down to earth levels). Personally, I care about GOOD games. The matter of wether or not a game is a "new IP" is not something I commit conscious thought to. All I care about is if a game is GOOD or not. I do not care about a new IP for the sake of it being a new IP.

The "new ip" arguement is nothing but another system wars buzzword for Cows to attach themselves to,because its ammo for them to use in System Wars . Yet we know how much they care about their new IPs :roll:

Oh that's what you meant. Misread your first post. However, there were fans asking for this type on a PS platform for awhile now especially during the PS2 days. Sony finally decided to greenlight the project with a minimal budget so it's not a big risk. If it's successful it could open the doors for a sequel and a bigger budget for it or in PSASBR's case, get more characters and add more polish to it. I think it's a good game on it's own merits where it can stand on it's own and exist next to Smash considering we've only been getting one Smash game a console generation so it does well as an alternative if you're waiting or if you don't have a Wii and want to play this type of game. The sequels to their IPs get made if the fans ask for it most of the time. You may not like Killzone or Resistance but other people do (though we may not get a new Resistance game anytime soon) but hey it's your opinion. On topic though, I want this game to succeed so there can be a possible sequel that improves on the formula and fixes any issues with its predecessor which in my opinion should be the menu and story mode cutscenes.

Why is that? Its just as fun as any Smash Bros game, why should they sell themselves short when their competitors aren't. The game is really fun, you should give it a try befoe saying what its worth. I didn't think the game was gonna be good at first, but it surprised me.

Meh. VGChartz. We'll see how it does at the end of the month.

Well Crash is now owned by Activision so he's hard to get and Crystal Dynamics said no.

What was it hyped at on Gamespot?
#38 Posted by game_masta14 (3251 posts) -
It was hyped A though you know trolls were trying to push the higher hype levels. The real issue is that the reviewer took only 5 minutes to play the game and quit when he couldn't figure out what to do in an online match.

#41 Posted by lamprey263 (23300 posts) -
funny because cows were asking for it and Sony responded and now it's up to their loyal fans to put up the money anyhow, on a technical level the game looks solid, but I feel where this game really lacks is in Sony's base of characters, Nintendo's characters have thrived for generations, Sony's are rather limited and some have no future, and in contrast there's a certain appeal of watching Nintendo's classically wholesome characters beat the living pissing out of each other while many of Sony's lineup are already pretty well known for kicking ass (i.e. Kratos, Big Daddy, Raiden, Dante, etc), it just wasn't meant to be

you and me both. I really want this game but asking 60 for it is wayyyy too much. Id pay 30 at most

Maybe because it's not a hyped up AAA game by Sony. Sure it's a budget title, but a fun one at that. I just hope it will sell enough to warrant a sequel with a higher budget so they get work out all the kinks the first one had.

I always like watching them rush to change their numbers once the NPD report comes out.
