Sega didnt support it, because Conduit 1 flopped, why would they pour more money into a series that is not getting them any returns?? They wouldnt, I bet that if it wasnt for the contract they wouldnt have even released the damn game. Outsold?? Hell no, Red Steel 2, and NMH 2 were better received than their predecessors and they did worst.

Conduit 2 and Tournament of Legends performed badly for sales because Sega, for some reason known only to themselves, decided to stealth release them. If Conduit 2 had been given the same sort of advertising budget the first one had then I'm certain it would have outsold it. The second game fixed a lot of problems the first game had and deserved to do better. High Voltage are now working on a U title, it wouldn't surprise me if they canned the Wii SKU and started development on a U SKU instead using the Infernal Engine.

I dont feel sorry for HVS, they are so-so dev and the made a so-so game. And they had the nerve to hype it up like it was a AAA title or something. If you dont back up your words, you look foolish simple as that. Nothing to do with WIi, GE is doing great

I wholeheartedly salute HVS for attempting to break out of the work-for-hire position with their own IP. It's sad to see a much more enticing and ambitiuos projet like the GRinder get shot down based on Tournament of Legends and Conduit 2 doing so poorly. Hopefully it still exists, but is back on the drawing board to be refitted to the new market and the new demands.

I strongly suspect the Grinder has been postponed indefinitly. Warner Bros. was supposed to publish it but I guess they backed out since the game hasn't been released and there hasn't been any information on either the wii or HD versions in months. The abysmal sales of Conduit 2 is probably the reason.

Unfortunately, these sales make sense. Conduit 2 didn't score that much worse than its predecessor, but the sequel has something the original didn't: competition. Between the release of the two games, we got two Call of Dutys, Goldeneye, Red Steel 2, and Water Warfare. Being a merely decent FPS was an option in 2009. Not in 2011. Oh, and the complete lack of advertising hurts too.

Also the EMEAA sales are absolutely abysmal. I think in terms of WW sales there is a good chance HVS won't be able to get the Grinder out because they won't get a publisher because of poor Conduit 2 sales.
Message | Report
JaxxRaxor posted 05/06/2011, 03:49
While the Metacritic score hurts, the main reason for the poor sales of this game (both in general and compared to the first game) is that Sega has done absoutly no marketing for this game. The Conduit had a really strong marketing push on T.V. print media and the internet. I saw no advertising at all for Conduit 2. Now granted it was released the same week as Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat but still its a wii exclusive and Sega should have done what publishers are supposed to do and make at least some attempt in marketing.

I do feel sorry for HVS they're really trying to make AAA quality games but keep falling short. Maybe if the first one didn't have such high expectations people wouldn't have felt as if they got burned. And because they felt burned they refuse to buy into a sequel.

It's nothing to do with the Wii. SEGA blew it. They didn't stock it, advertise it, promote it, nothing. Why should people have purchased it? I did, and I'm happy with it. But the online is pretty dead, and that's a shame.

Well if it really came out at the end of a week then it may go up a bunch, then again The last story did not go up much when the full week numbers were in either. There were no pre-orders! Did Sega even promote it at gamesstops where pre-orders would have actually happened? WHats the deal with GE? I know target had some good game deals last week.
