[QUOTE="StrongBlackVine"]

[QUOTE="Animal-Mother"] No it's not, Tom raiders had 25 days. Bioshock infinite had 6Animal-Mother

Tomb Raider sold 1 million in like 3/4 days.

Proof? 

Yeah he's right, just searched around and found few sites that say it did 1 mil in 48 hours

  • http://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/tomb-raider-reboots-the-classic-series-sales-success-moving-1-million-copies-in-two-days/
  • http://service.gameskinny.com/z3m10/tomb-raider-sells-1-million-copies-in-first-48-hours

But most likely WW and not just U.S.

anyways lets just let the companies worry about it, as gamers all we want is more games

I hope it sells more. Word of mouth can make a game spread like wildfire.

Pretty sure every one that plays games regularly knows about Bioshock Infinite.

Which we wont get if the games don't sell well to begin with. Therefore gamers, developers alike should be worried about poor sales.

But worrying wont do anything, as gamers we cant do anything to make a game profitable, we may tell friends about it but there is no 100% asurance that our friends would buy the games that get recomended to them, thats why the company itself is the only one that should worry about their games :P

I'm not going to pay $60 for an 8 hour single-player game.

This likely does not include PC digital which I probably a huge number considering all the awesome preorder bonuses this game had.

I haven't bought a console game in years. But I purchased Bioshock Infinite on principal alone. Support great games.

Every game you buy should be a good game anyway.

2K is extremely pleased with those numbers, saying it's a couple hundred thousand above expectations, and on track to sell 4.5m within a year.

That is less than Tomb Raider in the same time frame and it is guaranteed that Bioshock Infinite cost more with all those delays and massive marketing budget.

Tomb Raider still queen of 2013.

This doesn't count digital sales, which is a large part of Bioshock's audience.

Really glad it did. Ken was very worried the game wouldn't sell or get enough exposure and I'm really glad it did. 

I would say inb4 trolls say it's terrible but it already happened

I feel like alot of the trolls are just people who didn't quite understand the plot.

Remember that 100 page thread with people explaining things to the OP who clearly didn't get it?

no surprise given the marketing. real test is extended sales in the next month. Considering you might get a lot of people trading their copy in and others just buying that copy back.

I had more fun with Tomb Raider. Bioshock Infinite's combat was got very stale in the second half of the game.

I agee, the game is good but its not the best thing ever.. the best thing about infinite was the story while the gameplay was the usual shooting with waves of things to shoot at not to mention it can be finished within 8 to 10 hours which is the usual from what we get from games these days ( personally i think this game should have been sold at $40 and not $60 ).

saying its the best game ever is not correct, its fun and i hope we see more stories like this but game still has many flaws.

Glad that was units sold and not how much the game made because surely it had to break the mil mark. The game is great and deserves recognition and sales.

So those are US retail figures? Good I guess but I'd be interested to see the international ones, and the digital sales (which of course have higher revenue). I was a little worried it wouldn't meet 2K's sales expectations - and still am, I had a feeling they were shooting a bit too high with it.

Damn, I was hoping this wouln't sell too well. This game is utter trash and an outright disrespect to the bioshock franchise. Bioshock 1 wipes the floor with this casual trash.

'Bioshock is utter trash as a spiritual successor to System Shock 2, made for idiotic casuals who can't play challenging and complex games'. Dat logic, so edgy.

'What constitues as a great story is subjective but gameplay isn't. Wat. What makes a game what it is, is a whole manner of things. Hence why the firs Bioshock received tons of gushing, despite critics overlooking the games wonky mechanics, and the same can be said about GTA IV's **** design choices and dull dragged out story, or MGS4 on a whole. Infinite isn't perfect in any regard at all, better for the sum of its parts? I'd say so.

I'm glad it sold that well, i loved the game and unless Bayonetta 2 or Last of Us can do something about it, it will be my GOTY...hell i might even get it again on PC to try out my new Video Card.

Bioshock 1 is even worse than this, and twice as far up its own ass with pretense.

Games are made by gameplay? No shit, man. And nah, the gameplay being average isn't factual at all. Gunplay feels good, vigors give you lots of combat options and feel good to use, and skylines are fantastic. How in the world is the gameplay average?

But if you look at it more deeply you'll notice that GoW:A and GeoW:J both at 600k and both on 1 platform while Infinite on 3 systems at 800K :P

hopefully get more games like Infinite tho :D
