Yes, because less than a whole full day of being released before they tally sales is TOTALLY fair! *rolls eyes*

"Facts?"

The facts in my article are verifiably true. Most games are launched without a full week to tally sales. Halo 4, Black Ops II, Gran Turismo 5 and Animal Crossing: New Leaf (among many others) earned respectable positions on sales charts despite not having a full week. Not sure why anyone might think PSABR should get special treatment.

If an article supports KK's fanboy agenda, it's a trustworthy source. if it doesn't, it "proves nothing."

What?

You say Greg's article proves nothing, and yet, you consider Jason's article to be trustworthy and laugh at the "facts" it supposedly proves.
But we all know which way your fanboy bat swings, so it's not as anybody's surprised.

You don't want to see millions of people trade in their systems for a chance to play as Emmett Graves?

Because I have come to realize that a great deal of gamers, want companies to fail and people to lose jobs.

The game isn't terrible, I don't think it's as fun as Brawl is (there is something magical about Brawl) but it's still fun.

Another non sarcastic, totally heartfelt comment from Jason supporting Sony and its systems.

How could I have been so wrong about you?

Not mad at anyone. Just annoyed with all the troll posts.

Why are you so mad at me?

I don't hate Sony and I plan on getting Battle Royale. I was simply commenting on the article you posted.

Don't get how people are such diehard trolls. Why can't you like all games/gaming platforms without all the hate for any game/company/console? Grow up already really!

Hello Gregory Stevens. By the way, it's spelled "Kryptonite".

Anyway, that link you posted proves nothing. Yes, the game was offered digitally but we don't know the digital sales. The author tries to say it's "unfair" but same thing can be said about any game that has poor retail sales(that is also offered in digital form).

What the Sony rep. said is interesting. But you never know, sales expectations could be low and I wouldn't be surprised coming from Sony.

Bottom line, as the author said, we have to wait till the November data comes out to prove anything.

He's held hostage by Activision, just like Spyro. Rumors say, they already killed them...

If Crash Bandicoot were in this game, it would have sold better.

WHERE IS CRASH BANDICOOT?

@ Kryptonite:

Read comment above yours!

LOL. Nintendo releases a first-party character crossover fighting game and it sells like hotcakes. Sony does the same but sales are weak. What went wrong Sony?

Waldo says:
Report is flawed to begin with: For starters, All-Stars launched in the UK on November 23rd. Weekly sales ceased being counted on November 24th. But perhaps the bigger issue is that All-Stars was also available digitally day one for both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, and digital downloads are becoming a popular option for PlayStation gamers, especially on the latter platform.

we've been really enjoying All Stars ... for me, the SP story mode meets my needs - I'm almost finished the PS3 version, although now I'm trying them on the hardest level, & for some matches, almost impossible ... hopefully the NA sales number will reflect better ... just yesterday while in Future Shop I sold a woman on buying the PS3 version ... she was so pleased with my input she remarked I should come with her this weekend to do her electronics shopping ... she left with All Stars & A Vita game ... I'm out there doing all I can for Sony sales - lol.

There is an outside chance a remake of sorts may end up on XBLA.

I wish they would make a new Killer Instinct game. It's my favorite fighting game ever (partly for the memories, but it really holds up well for being so old). Of course, I would really love to see a KI movie, but that's not going to happen . . . . . :(

Unless they make it an FPS brawler.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 27, 2012 8:22:03 AM PST
That furry from Dust. I bet they could probably get The Kid from Bastion. The Gunstringer.

The problem is a mascots brawler from MS would've a sales flop.
