Pillars of Eternity has now entered the top sellers chart on Steam!

Two folks with one excellent idea. I merged threads to make one homage to STEAM sales.

Cool, they seem to have fixed the duplicate top sellers entries now :)

 

 

 

I'd like to think that was because I contacted Steam Support about it ;)

 

 

 

PoE at #3 and still going strong, yay!

Pre-ordered the Hero Edition on GOG so that's one sale from me. Also really want that giant miniature space

I'm pretty sure PoE will have as long legs as D:OS, if not longer. And in the last year alone there is, just to mention a few notable cases: Heroes of Might and Magic X, Shadowrun Dragonfall, The Banner Saga, Wasteland 2, Blackguards 2... right now in development is Shadowrun: Hong Kong, as well as some form of D:OS 2, The Banner Saga 2, Torment:ToN and so much more. It's a good time for PC RPG gaming.

They should just make sure that this release will be as stable as possible so they won't get a lot of negative user reviews right at release. As long as it is ,it will sell well just for the Baldurs gates' nostalgia factor alone.

 

The quality of this game might influence sells for best or for worst after a week or two considering that right now it seems like the  professional reviews are going to be relatively good and it will take a while for non backers user reviews to kick in in metacritic considering the length of this game (and I am pretty sure many backers will give it a 9/10 on its' first day just to try and help this genre).

 

 

This better sell a billion otherwise PC gaming is dead.

Let's tone down the Hero Worship just a bit.

It does actually sound reasonable , after all there are around one billion Internet users world wide...

 

I agree that everyone should play it!

You must have missed the memo that PC gaming has been dead for years. Actually if you beleive the hype, PCs in general are dead, tablets are the future! Oh and nobody wants an isometric RPG, lol. 3D or bust.

 

Isometric viewpoints are viable, though, on touch-based tablet interfaces for casual games.

Well on GoG, the Hero Edition is top-seller, Champion Edition is 3rd and Royal Edition is 4th. That's what I call ****ing Success!!!

I wasn't expecting the sales to be this good, considering the genre.

What? RPG next to FPS is the most popular genre right now.

Yea, but sadly total GOG sales are tiny comparing to Steam sales.

Wish more ppl would get to GOG and instead of seeing topics like "Pillars of Eternity has now entered the top sellers chart on Steam!" we would see "Pillars of Eternity has now entered the top sellers chart on GOG!", and this would bring excitement to the community, as GOG really is the place to go with all the goodies they give, unobstructive installers and DRM-free games not requiring any other applications to install or run.

Not good enough. Needs to be 1, 2, and 3.

 

As much as I would like to see that, I do not think it's a chance for all these edition beat Witcher 3 :)
