Bulletstorm Sales Unimpressive So Far
We sorta liked your crazy, over-the-top style, Bulletstorm, but sadly, your name is not "Call of Duty."
Based on the recent sales numbers, it seems the FPS that urges you to "kill with skill" isn't exactly burning up the charts. According to Cowan & Company analyst Doug Creutz, People Can Fly's in-your-face shooter has been "disappointing" thus far: it has sold around 279,000 total units on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The analyst compared that number to the impressive 790,000 tallied by Capcom's Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. It's interesting because both games in question hold just about the same average review score (about an 8.5), and one would assume that the latest, hottest shooter would hit big. But Killzone 3 sales haven't skyrocketed, either, so it appears that only one FPS is allowed to own the sales charts this generation... Then again, we shouldn't forget about that bad-ass Battlefield franchise, now should we?
But anyway, the competition continues to be extra stiff in most all categories of gaming, and it seems as if everyone is saving their money for the elite titles.
