yes! bout darn time. what? did we wait like 6 months for that to officialy happen. Oh and your saying that from 993 thou they rounded it to 1.01 million? why would they do that. I believe the rules of rounding would have put it to 1 million if anything bacon.

technically, next week it will be at 1 million, it's at 993k right now. As for why it says 1.01, it says that because it adds up the 2 rounded up numbers.

There is a slight chance of it saying the game is at a million next week, but as it rounds up, it won't really hit a million for another 3 weeks.

@KingHenry: Well, I played it alone and in coopmode and enjoyed both. I love it and will absolutely buy the second one.

KingHenry posted 07/06/2009, 08:09
Is this game overrated, or is it just me? I never played the single player mode, is that why i find this game boring?
I admit, when i played this with my girlfriend/friends/brothers for the first few times, it was fun, but the excitement quickly declines. Game play per session never exceeded a hour, because it just got boring. I tried playing it for the fourth time (i believe), and it was unbearable, usually it starts off fun and gets boring, but it was boring from that start. I've never touched it since, and it actually makes me feel unpleasant when i look through my games and see it.

500k is fine for this game.

Boom Blox 2 should sell 1 million, due to its online play, added multiplayer content, and more comprehensive editor. (wishful thinking).

Hmm 10k on average a week. Take it to about j550k by holiday season. Doubtful however it'll go plat unless this title sees huge boosts then and gains large brand to continue selling into 2009. Probable.
