    Re: How are the PC sales going?

    I hope you guys see a great turn out on PC. I'm sure the retail release on March 2 will make sales jump quite a bit. I really hope a lot of AW newcomers purchase and visit the original after getting sucked in courtesy of AWAN

        Hopefully the sales are great, but I wonder if this is one of those games that will live an extended/second life through Steam sales (VtM:B). I'm not a fan of the genre, and it was only the combination of me being a fan of Max Payne and a fan of Twin Peaks that prompted me to buy AW on day one. Remove either of those two and AW would have been at the top of my "Buy During the First Major Sale" list.

          Yeah, my guess is that it will drop to $20, maybe $15 during the summer sale, and get another boost then... Then $10 during the Xmas sale.

          Hopefully RMD will have recouped their costs on the port by then, so it will all be gravy.

          Supposition: Since MS funded the dev of the game, RMD's costs "should" have all been covered. Where they would make/break off teh Xbox sales is any milestone bonuses and of course their royalties per unit once (and if) all dev/marketing costs were met.

          Since they own the IP, again, they should only be dealing with dev/marketing costs, and should recoup this part quicker, even with lower sales.

          The good thing is that the audience needs to expand. many of us here are double/triple dipping to have the expierence in higher-res on the PC. Nothing wrong with that. But to support a sequel, we need to the OVERALL audience to increase - meaning new "virgin" purchases of the PC port by PC/PS3/Wii?mac gamers.

          Time will tell.

            If we buy the game on steam, Remedy gets 70% of our money, Valve gets 30% and MS gets 0%, is that correct?

            Because I hope it is. The only more ideal situation would be if Remedy got 100%, but that would only be possible if they were selling the game on their own website (and without steamworks?). Hmmm, maybe that would not be a bad idea.

            Basically people should buy the PC version if they want to support Remedy, in any case. And I hope Remedy will be able to selfpublish their next PC games too. I hate it when I buy the game and most of my money goes to middle man. Which is also why I bought Witcher 2 on GOG, for example.

              Thats good to know. Do hate it when you see someone on the net saying the game bombed.

                    I wanted to chime in here. We are very happy with the sales and hitting #1 on Steam at launch was nothing short of amazing. We recouped our development and marketing expenses during the first 48 hours. And yes, we're certainly very excited about PC.

                      Congrats!!!!

                      I think that is what most of us want to hear (recouping dev and marketing costs), and that the effort was worth it.

                      Between the 360 (or whatever is next) and PC, hopefully the audience will grow enough to support RMD's vision for the franchise and we can all have some more.

                          Glad to hear the risk paid off for you guys. So anything from here on out is pure profit? That's amazing!

                              Microsoft funded the production of Alan Wake?
