It's now #9 on Steam, but it's really difficult to understand how the sales went on there since it wasn't tracked for the European release.

 

We'll see when the sales are out next week. Drop was to be expected after a few days but it dropped very fast in a few hours from 3rd

id love to know how much the mp, camera and no game + affected the sales and what obsidian and square have to say about it..

 

Thats impossible to count. Also there are other players that actually like the game because it didn't focus on these things but other qualities.

It is impossible to quantify...but looking at all the forums around the web I would say these two things have generated an enormous amount of negativity. Word of mouth is a powerful things and can bring a game great sales, and on the opposite end of the spectrum, really hurt it too.

I agree with that. I'm sure, though, that those people number much less than those that wanted the persistent multiplayer and newgame+ features...

if you bother to look around other boards where fanboys arent the persistent members, like here, you might see what im talking about..

Here in Australia it's had a price drop already

Pretty funny that in less than a week they are already dropping the price... will be interesting to see what it is in a months time.

 

I don't know how they do the economy these days. Game.com.au, for instance, is a branch of Game.co.uk, which had a 5-pound sale going on since early June. It's one of many sites now that seem to do a lot of 10% sales before release, and sometimes after release, and... I don't know if they ever sell anything full price. No idea how that works. :lol:

I checked your link to GAME and despite the sale they have for it right now, it is still only 5AUD cheaper than unreleased games like Dark Souls and Deus Ex: human Revolution. Not really a big deal.

Don't know why people take 'price drops' so seriously. To know what they mean you'd have to know the motivation for said drop. It is too early to tell if the game is a financial bomb or hit.

Well folks, I checked up on vgchartz.com (which is by no means the end all be all of accurate sales charts), and these are the numbers for the first week of sales that are listed for EMEAA.

 

Xbox360 - 16,519

http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/sales/45443...geon-siege-iii/

 

PS3 - 10,596

http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/sales/45442...geon-siege-iii/

 

PC - 10,447

http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/sales/47140...geon-siege-iii/

 

Keep in mind there is simply not enough information (or accurate information, rather) yet to make any kind of sales predictions (but I hope it sells well).

 

If anyone has a more accurate chart, send links please!

Jeez...I know VGchartz is pretty inaccurate but they've always been vaguely correct-like 20-30% give or take. And those sales for EMEAA look....pretty bad. Guess the sales will be around Alpha Protocol level (or even worse?) after all... :fdevil:

I'm curious how it could be on various European top 10 and top 20 charts if it sold that low, though. In one chart it was at overall 9th for its debut week - so everything below it, like Alice, sold even less? How does that work? O_o Those kind of numbers should place a game way way below.

 

Either vgchartz will do a massive readjustment after a week or two of US sales, or... nobody buys games except Wii Fit anymore. :fdevil:

These are the first week sales for Alice: Madness Returns in EMEAA...

 

Xbox360 - 11,644

http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/sales/33815...adness-returns/

 

PS3 - 9,556

http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/sales/33816...adness-returns/

 

PC - 1,351 (wow... must be online downloads mostly... those don't seem to count towards the chart #)

http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/sales/33814...adness-returns/

 

I've heard Alice hasn't been selling well (from my local Gamestop, heh), and these numbers seem to support that... Bleh...

Thats because they change their numbers when real data shows up.

Some of their initial guesses have been wrong by 2-3x or more.

Unless the game becomes a massive hit or someone speaks on the subject we are unlikely to see a good estimation of sales until Square-Enix investor report shows up.

Those are numbers are pretty much pulled out of a hat. Only the publishers&developers have the actual numbers. So unless some is feeding them information on the sales, I don't see how those numbers are accurate at all.

Since most people didn't bother to actually check the link:

 

Week 24.

 

United kingdom.

12 (__) 360 Dungeon Siege Iii (Square Enix Europe)

26 (__) PS3 Dungeon Siege Iii (Square Enix Europe)

 

Ireland.

19 (__) Dungeon Siege Iii (Square Enix Europe)

 

Denmark.

10 (__) Dungeon Siege Iii (Ubisoft)

 

Germany.

06 (__) [PS3] Dungeon Siege 3 (Square Enix Europe)

 

Sweden.

18 (__) [PS3] Dungeon Siege III

19 (__) [360] Dungeon Siege III

 

Those were the countries that we have info for.

 

Time to quote myself. Info for Sweden. (Dungeon Siege III is at nubmer 6 in the PC and PS3 chart. number 5 on the Xbox 360 chart.)

 

Note: Dungeon Siege III was released June 17th wich means it only tracked for one day in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Sweden. Still can't find info on France, Italy, Norway and Finland.
