Why still compare the performance to Heavy Rain? It isn’t a sequel, Heavy Rain was also a +5 million seller, I doubt they were expecting that much from Detroit.

People use the word "flop" and "bomba" way to much it lost all meaning really.
Yeah, good point. I'd say Detroit was a lot lower than I thought it would have been. I expected around 60k when taking into account the install base and push for a big first party exclusive

How did the multiplatform Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy sell at release.

And how many took it back when they got near the end.

That's the only important Quantic Dream comparison.

Remember when God of War sold 1/4th the previous mainline entry?

Neither does anyone else.

Cause it didn't happen.
You hate Cage, we get it, but you're fighting a losing battle here.

Detroit will sell well, will be profitable, and QD will release it's next game on the PS5 in 3-4 years.

You can't read, we get it, but you're fighting a losing battle here.

I was responding to a post that did a comparison with God of War. The comparison doesn't work. God of War opened to higher sales than previous entries. Detroit did not.

That's a very average start for Detroit. I think it will do fairly well over the coming weeks though since it launched on a Friday, the word of mouth around it has been good and it launched so soon after God of War.

Tbh I don't know how Heavy Rain did so well for its launch.

Still i don't think anyone should have expect it to open at HR number .
Also the comparison make no sense due to fact that each QD game is new IP .
It open up higher than Beyond the question is how much with DD and next week will give us a idea about it's legs .

I didn't invoke the God of War comparison.

Personally I think the Detroit sales are middling. Not bad or good. It's certainly opening on the lower side of Sony first-party offerings, even below something like the Last Guardian which is a fairly small title.

And unlike most Sony titles this generation, it hasn't benefited from a boost in sales compared to the studios past work.

In UK .hold your horse for WW numbers. And beside last game of QD was beyond and this is selling Abit better than beyond .so if anything they improved ;)

Im wondering if the success of God of War has had an adverse effect on Detroit.

Not everyone has £50 to buy a new game with each month.

And? That doesn't mean it's a flop, it won't sell well , or won't make a profit.

You've been posting non-stop all over era trying to discredit Detroit, Cage and QD. You must really hate the man but you're clearly not being objective with the game, and it's tiresome...

PS: You're quip was really, really bad

And I didn't say any of that regarding flop. My "quip" was also just a straight copy of yours. With how much you're defending David Cage, I thought you'd appreciate a little copy paste.

Sorry that I don't like Cages games or the management of QD which has been accused of terrible things. Didn't realize that was a pre-requiste to posting in PAL Charts threads.

Wait, it's not.

Mine was not a quip, mate, mine was just a statement. What made yours a quip was your attempt to use your words againts me, in a very uninspired manner.

It's not a pre-requesite, just makes your posts not that valuable when your commenting on Detroit, if they're fueled by this Cage hate

Okaaaaaay...

Whatever you say. Maybe try rereading the post I was responding to and what I actually said rather than whatever your imagination put in there.

I have a dream that one day you'll judge me by the contents of my posts in this thread...

Just looked into this and it's actually bollocks. Heavy Rain launched Feb 26th 2010 in the UK - a Friday.
Yeah, plus it barely makes too much of a difference usually. Most of the sales come on day 1, so if we're making a direct comparison to Heavy Rain as that Tweet was, then it probably won't sell as much as Heavy Rain week 1 in 3 weeks time even unless there's some early price drops.

It overperformed considering gamepass exists,

How so? Because it had 1 million players at launch?

Tracking days most definitely make a difference, just look at God of War.

Wow good for state of decay 2. It almost beat Detroit which had what 100X the hype over the last few years? And that's on Xbox much smaller than PS4 install base in the UK, AND on top of that gamepass and a heavy digital focus siphoning off a LOT of SOD's sales. With digital/game pass in account it surely handily beat Detroit.

An ok start to Beyond. Hope the game does well overall because so far the game has been rather fun.

God of War with a nice little bump there too.

edit: meant Detroit not beyond

Six weeks in a row PlayStation exclusive on top.

State of Decay 2 - released on Tuesday, 22.99 pounds
Detroit - released on Friday, 47.99 pounds

Still Detroit sold better.

Detroit will have much better second week, also.
