Dude..Anarchy Reigns isn't out yet in the US lol

How did you guys mess up so badly with Anarchy Reigns?


Michael-5 (on 16 July 2012)

Did the 360 version really sell 75% as well as the PS3 version in Japan? Do Japanese gamers hate Platinum Studios?

Request- When will God of War III's numbers be fixed? Why is Vgchartz incapable of fixing a mistake that is so massively wrong and has even been confirmed so by Sony themselves? It shipped 5.20 million as of May 30th (probably 5.3m+ now) and has only sold 4.41m? There's no way a game that's over 2 years old can have around 900,000 copies sitting on shelves.


Mad55 (on 15 July 2012)

Their not gonna answer a question like that. im sure they will correct it in the future though along with anything else that needs revising.

Actually that doesn't sound too unrealistic to me. GT5 had about that number of copies on store shelves for months. It's because unconventional retailers like "Shoppers Drug Mart," "7-11," and "Canadian Tire" stock copies of games like this and don't really sell them. The shoppers near me has had one copy of Mario Party 8 do so long (and in direct sunlight) that the color has largely faded away.
