I'm about ready to see if I can put a filter on VG Chartz. Don't fucking trust them dammit.

Even if it isn't accurate do you really think a game like CoE would outsell DNF?

Your gut reaction may be "No", but when you stop to think about it... Why is Duke Nukem even relevant? It's getting panned, largely ignored by people who weren't following DNF's history AND still wanted the game, and most of the mainstream is more focused on Call of Duty or games that actually were received well like LA Noire.

Anyways, while it's only taken from Amazon there is this. May be skewed due to Child of Eden going on sale for $35 though.

That boost in sales was precisely because of the price cut I mentioned and that originated this whole debate. My point stands, it bombed which originated a price cut which in turn originated bigger sales. Becoming nº1 after a significant price cut 2 weeks after release isn't the same as being a success at launch. Besides, last week didn't have any huge releases like the previous weeks (DNF and Zelda) so I guess the low price combined with good press and word of mouth helped the game. It's refreshing to see a game like this do well, especially in the US.
DNF got a lot of shit but in the week of release it topped the charts everywhere, the hype was there.

If Amazon is the only source of data, then yeah, I'll take it with a considerable amount of salt. But man, even that is better than VG Chartz.
Earth-2.net is a website where I occasionally type words about entertaining pieces of media.

Remember when I said that they might as well release the PS3 version for $30? Well, the RRP in the UK is £19.99 and PLAY has it available for pre-order with a £14.99 price tag and they even throw in a T-shirt!


I'm waiting for impressions on how well it works with move (should look amazing in 3D though...), as soon as I see good impressions about the gameplay I'm getting it.

Looks like Amazon has the same price but without the T-shirt.

It's funny seeing the 360 version priced at 30 euro and the PS3 version which hasn't even been released yet for 20.

It's even funnier to see the 360 version going for $30 here and the PS3 version announced at $50. You really think it's worth coming out the gate at that price point Ubi?

Holy shit! This might be the most beautiful game I've ever seen! Wish I had a 3DTV.
