you guys can say how wrong i am, but whatever if ninja theory had just shut their mouth instead of badmouthing fans, that forecast and the sales would be better.
Is this about the wig thing? Please tell me there's more to this than "not in a million years".
I'm genuinely asking, because that's the only "insult" I've ever heard people reference, but people constantly reference being insulted.
i believe it was more than that, especially with what the Tameem guy has said over the course of Dev for this game that pissed off the diehards.
I did a little searching around, this link doesnt seem like the full story, but it still has stuff that pissed off the diehards,
its funny how that guy made so much digs on the diehard fans, and i believe it was the ps4 event they showed him with a bald head :P
I read through that and man, what a shitshow. The scant bits of criticism that might have been valid were quotations given with absolutely no context. You can't take any of that at face value when the poster clearly had an agenda. And given how the rest of the post is the most ridiculous grasping at straws I have ever seen, it's much more likely that those quotations were specifically taken out of context to help vilify NT.
I'm a diehard DMC fan, and the first thing I'd tell anyone getting pissed off by the stuff posted in that thread is "Grow the fuck up".
Yeah honestly, reading through that gave me some insight as to why some DMC fans were pissed off, and a ton of insight as to why people were belittling the angry DMC fans. I mean, I didn't like Other M but I thought ignoring it worked out alright.
DMC fans should really stop making themselve look so needy and selfimportant by digging around for every single article showing DmC didn't sell. Hey guys, it sold better than both GoWs and Xcom. You didn't do shit, people are just tired of buying games for this gen and aside from shooters, nothing as been meeting sales goals for about a year now.
How about you think before you speak before pulling the needy and entitled fanbase argument dumbass.
that argument annoys me especially when its coming from someone on GB, a site that has lived and got picked up by CBS a large part cause of the paying Subscriber base (the Staff has said numerous times its because of the subscribers is why this site is still around) people including subscribers bitched about the wednesday show and the views decreased each week, and lo and behold no more wednesday show, its now a monthly show. thats just the most recent example.
but back to DmC,
vgchartz the closest estimate we the public will see shows that both gows and xcom still overall sold better than DmC
(and according to 2k, you know the publisher of Xcom, said that Xcom exceeded expectations and was very profitable) Just cause Square enix had insane expectations for their western stuff doesnt mean everyone was the same way (if tomb raider is where you basing your generalization from, the devs have said that even though it didnt meet expectations, that doesnt mean it sold well or was a failure, and also Square has said sleeping dogs was profitable as well) , and this DmC was the worst selling game in the series, (heres DMC4's numbers for comparison )
Vg Chartz may not be the definitive numbers, but its a good estimate to what we will ever get to see.
I dont disagree that overall there is a slump in sales, but to say the vocal fans/people that didnt like the new character design wasnt a factor in this game's sales is foolish and show you dont know how business works and the a relationship with your brand's audience works
