Mirror's Edge To Sell At Least 3 Million?

EA is the king of video game promotion, but as all gamers will tell you, a title simply doesn't sell if it sucks. Hence, when EA marketing representative Martin Frain says there are high sales expectations for DICE's Mirror's Edge, one has to be encouraged.

According to Joystiq, Frain said he expects the highly anticipated and potentially revolutionary game to "sell as many as three million units across three platforms." Think he's overshooting a bit? Nope; actually, that's a conservative estimate! As he says, they're "being helped immensely, just by the look of the game ... You look at a screenshot of Mirror's Edge, and you know what it is." Well, that much is probably true, especially when you're talking about gamers who follow industry news on a daily basis. From the media we've seen so far, the title is certainly on our radar, and we're expecting nothing but good things. It's going to be a challenge to make that relatively new gameplay mechanic work seamlessly, but if DICE can pull it off, we should be in store for a very special - and very unique - experience. Forgive us for being optimistic.

Anyway, there were a few rumors floating about regarding a possible delay for Mirror's Edge, but apparently, that only involved the PC version of the game. As far as we know, the game should still launch later this year for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

I don't know, I remain skeptical of this one. It's coming out during the flooded time of year. There are I think 3 games I'm purchasing on release so I think I'll rent this one.

Apart from Bioshock, this is the only other game I am making an effort to buy this year.

Day one purchase, so I will hopefully be a part of the 3 million. Which will be possible considering it's a multiplat title.

To anyone thinking of getting this 1 on the day of release i caution you, hold off until there's some feedback from other players. And definitely keep an eye out for a PSX review of it.
A game like this has a lot of chances to screw up. If it works, it'll turn out to be a great game. But, if they mess it up, like so many others before, you'll regret the purchase.
I do hope this one delivers though.

Sorry day 1 purchase for me. Especially since I have my inside sources who have played it and have told me first hand that the game kicks a lot of ass, but then again. All games weren't meant for everyone. So hey, you can all have your own opinion.

Im sorry but this game draws no intrest to me at all...on the other hand We got Bioshock Resistance 2,FallOut3 (OMG ITS GONA ROCK!!!!!!!) Socom(Love the Beta since they fixed it), and LittleBigPlanet coming so this game is nowhere on my radar, but i still do hope it turns out well and we have another great game to play......God IMA BE BROKE THIS YEAR BY CHRISTMAS lol!!!

Too many big name games coming out at the same time. Mirror's Edge has the possiblity of Haze all over it. Jury's still out on this one.

My money can be spent more wisely on Resistance 2, Far Cry 2 and Fallout, IMO.

R2 and Socom2 will be too focused on multiplayer as seems to be the general trend these days. Online play should be an side dish not the meat. Mirrors Edge will hopefully give me this.

to be honest, this game doesn't interest me one bit, I find jumping on top of buildings in a whole game quite boring or repetitive.

I'm taking this with a grain of salt, like HAZE.

Isn't this just Spiderman all over again? I've done the rooftop stuff. No way this will sell 3 million. Then again, some games turn out to be pleasant surprises. If this is one of them then good for DICE.
