Didn't realise this had sold so badly until now. Was checking the sales of the Fable games to get a ballpark figure for Anniversary and yeah, this throws a spanner in the works.

Made me think of Sorcery, another flop of a motion control-only game.

Yeesh, I guess this game was a massive flop after all.

Its not a bad game though. They should bundle the crap out of it or re-release with joystick support! Its really just a rail shooter.

I dont know, before i would have agreed with Mr. Pugsly. But the game didnt even chart this week. the FIRST Kinect Sports outsold it, hell BAND HERO for some reason sold more. They are going to bundle the crap out of it, or drop the price

@ hunter_alien - I'm just waiting for the holidays before I call this a bomb. It hasn't even taken advantage of the Kinect's holiday boost.

@Mr Puggsly: not that it matters. Both games bombed HARD. Hell its a bigger shame for F:TJ, mainly because its on a more popular peripheral and its part of an established brand ;-)

Itll probably be bundled in the near future with kinect.

Bad opening for an Fable game but it was expectet since not many of the hardcore gamers will have kinect and the user base for this game is limited. Will this game have legs during christmas. Hard to tell right now. We only can wait and see.

Super flop. Unless sales pick up on holidays.

@ girgosz - Even in the worst case scenario, it's gonna do much better than Sorcery. That game hit $10 in a very short period of time.
Mr Puggsly (on 20 October 2012)
Looks like people are commenting on a game they haven't played. I own it and its a genuinely good game. Realistically I don't think MS is expecting to move much more than a million units. Maybe they'll advertise it closer to the holidays.

surely this has some good points to it though,has anyone played it

What a flop :O Just like sorcery....

... And people were saying this would be a big hitter this Christmas.

I don't any fable game to flop, but one did flop pretty hard.
I mean, wtf were they thinking?? A kinect-exclusive fable title??
oniyide (on 10 October 2012)
i dont think this will flop as hard as some think. Fable is a million selling franchise and im sure there a quite a few who will buy it, just cause. Regardless of quality

This will Flop, Just saying.
Mr Puggsly (on 08 October 2012)
I enjoyed the demo and love the series so I'll be picking this up. I would consider it a critical success if it gets at least a 6/10 from the critics. It should sell a million units, but I'd be really impressed if it can move 2 million lifetime.
