Is this game undertracked? It completely stopped selling after 2009.

Even if it wasn't the type of game people wanted out of the Banjo-Kazooie series it's still a big name game, like how could it have sold that badly after 2009?

Incredibly underrated game in my opinion. I just adored this game so much for it's huge environments and creativity. It's a shame that this is probably the final nail in the core game releases for Rare. Besides Perfect Dark Zero, I thought all their games were amazing and they should've released more but instead got refocused because of bad sales.

@yo_john117 couldn't agree more. I was full of excitement when I saw the teaser trailer for the third one. Then...yeah turned into something I wasn't expecting. Good game but I want the true sequel to Banjo-Tooie.

An interesting game, not bad. I don't think they're including the bundle sales though. At one point it had mass bundling with Viva Pinata.

Started playing this game. I do find it fun, but it isn't a good Banjo game. Well not much of a Banjo game but it still is fun, humorous, and nostalgic. Maybe the next Banjo game on 360 will be more akin to the old school ones... who knows. But still think this is fun so will try to get through more of it.

I'd say that it will hit 0.65m lifetime. Not that that's a bad thing cause it's still enough to easily break even. But yeah, I think MGS were under the illusion that all their first party software will sell like hotcakes.

@charts845 npd only tracks U.S. not worldwide. i like the previous banjo kazzoie games but this one was just so far from being a banjo game why fix it if its not broken it would have sold way way more if they just left it alone how it was in banjo tooie. i was so excited for this game to bad hopefully rare have learned their lesson and go back to how banjo should have been in the next one.

Ok this is really annoying me now. This is a great game but the online play is terrible. Why? Because I havent actually been able to play, I spent three hours in a lobby waiting to get a game and nothing came up, nothing. Why, why did sales have to flop so badly? Why cant people just go out and buy the game? Its ruined my experience now. Hmph
