My favorite game of all-time. I have the regular and limited edition on 360, and one on Xbox One that came with QB. I'm just waiting for Alan Wake 2.

Combined with PC version the Alan Wake franchise sold 4.5 million. Had the game not have been released at the same time as Red Dead Redemption and been a victim of piracy the X360 version would have sold better.

lol the original source is CVG not vgchartz they did an interview with the head of remedy and in that interview they clearly state "Alan Wake 1" has sold over 2 million copies "Moron" wow how old are you 10 why so mad lol pathetic??
Here is the exact quote ""We've moved over two million copies that's including PC," he confirmed. "So after a slow start it's turning into something really positive. It's definitely had legs."" Why don't you do some research next time first before you call someone a moron and in the process make yourself look like one. Yes the over 2 million sales include PC but like I said I very much doubt the PC version sold over 900,000 copies in just a month so it's undertracked why is that so hard to understand.

lol girgosz I doubt American Nightmare sales are included they said Alan Wake the game has sold over 2 million. They are two different games just in case you are not educated about that. I do understand that 2 million includes PC sales but like I said I doubt the PC version pushed 900,000 in such little time so it's obviously a little undertracked.

It apparently has sold 2 million copies. I doubt the PC version pushed a little under 900,000 in so little time. I'm guessing it was that it was bundled during the holidays as a digital code it definitely has legs. 2 million is not a failure for an IP lol at people saying it failed it was a success not halo success but very very few games are.

Is this the worst selling Xbox 360 exclusive? It's a shame that it didn't sell just because it's not about shooting. Reviews weren't very good so I guess that had a lot to do with it.

Sigh...learn to use that last line when you're making sense. Look at my statement before yours and you clearly see I've narrowed this conversation down to overall sales, not whatever vgchartz sales mentioned (hint: that mirrors derailing). If you actually have an argument to make within that actually stays on topic feel free to post at your heart's content. This is why I recommended thinking before posting in my other statement.

@Aldro, Plz don't fool yourself into thinking Alan Wake's final sales (retail and digital) are the sole reason for the PC release. Remedy has made clear indications that MS allowed for them to self-publish for a PC release in return for other hand-shake deals.

Pc aint doing this game any favors. Single player game like this. Finally all the people writing how the game should come to pc will get to pirate it. Sales are dead within a week and Alan wake has not sold even 100K on pc after a couple of weeks. Is it really worth it to kill all the sales console included to get under 100K more sales in this games lifetime.

Would be interesting to see how a GOTY edition (yes, by TIME magainze-and by me if you must know-) or something including both DLC's.

Actually its 999,919 but with the digital copies that came with the Forza 3/Allan Wake bundle it sold over one million copies already weeks ago. Also it probably sold pretty good on games on demand also. Next week it should easily be over one million in physical format, I'm pretty sure it will sell over 81 physical copies by then.

@ TheWordslinger - Well obviously not all games with great scores automatically sell millions. Look at Enslaved, Castlevania, Vanquish, etc. Also, the lack of advertising tells me MS didn't think it had much potential to be a big seller.

@Mr Puggsly I'm not suggesting you say anything in particular. And no, I didn't see it getting a load of award. And fair enough if you played it and didn't think a lot of it. But I didn't query any of that; I queried you saying the game wasn't well reviewed when it has an 83% average, which is actually very high and would no doubt have put it amongst the best games released that year. You're welcome to your opinion if you don't think it was very good, but I'm just commenting on the stats.

Man this game was such a bummer for me. Everything about it made it seem like the perfect game for me, but the damn forest sections kill this game. They drag on and on and on, and just gets tedious. They lose their scare value after the second forest section. This game had so much promise, but it was a swing and a miss IMO.
