Bad times
Bad times not only in the car industry. For example AVS:

But I currently buy adventure games! :) Love them. Especially such games like "Edna bricht aus" and AVS.

Can you translate that? I guess it's saying that the game hasn't sold very well so far? :(

Ascovel 01-09-2009 02:58 PM

the important bit:

Almost 1700 copies of AVS were sold in Germany the first week it became available, but less then 500 in the following months.

Gabez 01-09-2009 03:17 PM

Does anyone know a context for those figures? What are the numbers for other games in Germany?

Also, I wonder how many people bought it digitally...

Haggis 01-09-2009 04:22 PM

And where did they get those figures?

neon_git 01-09-2009 04:31 PM

This makes me sad. I really hope there's some bad maths going on here.

I know that I for one haven't bought the game because I just cannot afford it right now.

AVS: ~5400
Edna: ~9000

The best adventure titles 2008 have bad sales and the bad adventures have better sales numbers. Imho!
Except Mata Hari. It was not so good and sales are badier than AVS.

The opposite:
BioShock: 63.000

Ok for AVS:
"A Vampyre Story is proof that even the enthusiastic players are weary of waiting. Nearly 1700 units slipped into the first weeks on the sale of shop counters, and in subsequent months, each less than 500 The fact that ex-colleague Burtchens mouth angle whistled down, was not with the sales figures. He was just disappointed - after so many Delays by developers Crimson Cow measurablelath anticipation was high. Too high. But anyway: A Vampyre Story is one of the list of loving Adventures, the dramaturgy of thanks and great dialogues. If you have a good eye-to-press, press one. With the other one looks you know better anyway."

Hmm. Too bad.

I do kinda blame it on Tiller though. I mean it did come out three years late, people lose interest over that kind of period (unless it's Halo 4).

Ascovel 01-10-2009 03:16 AM

Sven, did only adventure games sell badly in Germany during the end of the year?

Sven_Q45 01-10-2009 06:27 AM

Not only adventure games. The most kids buy their stupid Ego-Shooters and action games. :rolleyes: :(

Haggis 01-10-2009 06:39 AM

Yes, but where the heck do these numbers come from?! :P

I donīt know the others but AVS and Edna were wrong!
The real numbers are: (As far as I know)
AVS: ~5400
Edna: ~9000

Iīd say we should wait a bit!
