Well, Saints Row IV flopped. Shame on the developers that lied, saying it "exceeded 1million sales". 828K is a LONG way from 1mil.


beuwolf (on 04 September 2013)

VGChartz doesn't include digital sales. It could very well surpass 1.5M including digital. Comparing to other titles, digital usually adds 20-50% more units.
