    Re: American Nightmare Sales/Success

    Nice to see that the game is a commercial success, and I believe rightfully so. The Alan Wake retail game sales IMO, were far to low considering the enormity of the game, with all the work that has been put in and around it. I really hope there will be a chance of a new reatail title like "Alan Wake - The Return" maybe?

      Not really, Big budget just means big risk. Lets cut away the BS shall we? You want this to fail on xbox I remember you saying so.
      This has sold around 50K with little press really in just over 2 weeks which is good for an XBLA game priced at 1200MSP.
      A fighting game would have had no effect on it infact ME3 would not have had an effect on it either IMO.

        There are a few things to take into account here. One, there's no worry about a cap on sales as they're never going to run out of copies of the game.

        Two, having a trial version will help a lot, as it will likely make people want to upgrade to full version when they unlock their first achievement/award.

        At this point they're really only limited by the 360 install base, and that can increase.

                  AWAN seems to be selling pretty well.

                  If most gamers prefer those big-budget games, this is definitely the first I've heard about that. I'm with bestbit, don't try and shroud your bullsh!t with a purpose; it's still just bullsh!t.

                    Big budget doesn't mean better. Games like limbo and trails are better than a lot of big budget, me3 is amazing but mw3 is utter shit. A big budget helps a good game to perhaps be even better but a great game like limbo can be great on a shoe string budget. Same with movies actually, transformers 3 utter utter shit and that had a huge budget and there are loads of classic movies on small budgets.

                        Re: American Nightmare Sales/Success

                        I'm a big Remedy fan & bought Alan Wake on both 360 & PC (twice) as well as AWAN on XBLA.

                        But I have to admit the arcade levels are too hard in places the cheap tactic of the respawning behind your blindspot ruining killstreaks is causing bad word of mouth as not everyone has a lot of time to dedicate to 3 starring all of these its too frustrating by far I am sorry to say.

                        Remedy please lower the score requirements or tweak it a little to be more forgiving its hurting AWAN sales right now!

                          I voted with my wallet because simply I wanted more Alan wake in any way/shape/form, which is why I got the game. While that means I hope that Remedy will continue to release alan wake games through all different kinds of means (like mobile, arcade, short films) I hope it encourages them to make another direct retail release.

                              congratulations Remedy! but has I am Alive sold more than Alan wake?! From gameplay trailer i have seen of it it dosent looks near as good as AW:AM. I am even surprised that it managed to outsell Alan wake enough to make it is no 1 on xbox live topseller list. I want to believe that total Alan wake american nightmare sales might be higher than i am alive.... but is it true?
