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.
