Looks like Insomniac's disappointing sales curse continues as sales of the latest critically loved XBOX One exclusive isn't selling very well..and there's probably a lot of reasons why. Either it's because people don't like Insomniac, forgot about the game because so many games were released in November or because the game doesn't cater to a wider audience.

According to VGChartz, the game has only sold 320k worldwide and 2/3 of that is in the US with only 210k sold after 3 weeks...that pales in comparison to Halo: MCC selling 660k in its first week and of course Call of Duty.

This probably explains why Microsoft is doing everything it can to get people to buy the game by recently offering a Free copy of the game to XBOX Live Gold customers...and of course the constant running of commercials

Resistance: Fall of Man, another critically loved game, sold over 4 million in its entire lifetime on PS3..will it happen for SO?

Here we pretend that comparing a new IP to several very well established IP's is an accurate way to gauge its sales.

And here we pretend that a game that was out for 8 years to reach those numbers is no different than a game that has been out a month.


These comparisons are stupid.

What I'd seen of the game didn't appeal to me. I'm going to try it out during the 24 hour period but making it free was the only way I was going to play it.

It will if they start handing it out for free to everyone who buys a Xbone. But legit 'sales' where people actually want it will be under 1 million lifetime.

It is a niche title like dead rising, but not as good and not at launch so that will hurt sales imho.

Haha! Sucked in Xbots. Your saviour has failed you.

...on a serious note, that's kind of sad. Game looked fun and it's full of colour.

320k isn't bad for a new IP, especially one as niche as SSO.
