Dead Space, Mirror’s Edge Sales Lackluster


Looks like Gamecop was right: publishers need to start spreading the Triple A titles throughout the year instead of bombarding gamers with a barrage of bad ass games during the holiday season.

But it appears they need to do so for their own sake and not for us poor, cash-strapped gamers. According to NPD, courtesy of Gamasutra, sales for Dead Space and Mirror’s Edge are very weak, compared with those of Gears of War 2, Fallout 3 and others. These are strong games, with very positive reviews and it appears they simply got lost in the shuffle of the hectic holidays.

What say you? Did anyone buy these games? Why or why not? And don’t you think it would behoove publishers to sprinkle these games out all year long instead of hoping they can get past the big boys of winter?

  1. Yeah. When you’ve got a bad economy, and you’re forced to only choose a handful of titles, you’re not going to take a chance on a Dead Space or a Mirrors Edge. You’re going to stick with the titles that keep delivering, year after year. Sadly, we’ve created this by buying that tripe, but the industry has invested so heavily in pumping out sequel machines that really they’ve shot themselves in the foot and haven’t left themselves a lot of room for growth.

  2. I tolds em! Those greedy capitalists I tolds em!!!

    Lol wow Im surprised. See I wouldn’t have guessed that. I would have guessed the gamers would suffer and that sales would be normal. I still haven’t opened GOW2….
