It sold better in Europe due to heavy bundling.

There were many adjustments probably due to the NPD life to date numbers.

What are you talking about? He absolutely says that it sold over a million.

I don't think he is quoting an exact amount, he is just trying to say that the title did well on a system that is know for shooters.

According to Rare, this sold 1 million copies, lets hope it doesnt include bundles

Bundled games count towards sales. Wii sports counts towards sales doesnt it?

Either way i thought this game was enjoyable for what it offered and it also was like the 2nd game i bought for the 360.

This must be the "sega tennis" in Europe with the Arcade?

either way, this game is REALLY cheap. Im in Canada and its $10 NEW, not used.

I hope MS really push VP2, they tried hard with the first game and didnt get the attention they deserved.

Who knows, market the game heavily, then later after the storm, start bundling the game with Arcade consoles, that is sure to get a lot of younger gamers in.

This title is on sale for like 10 euro lately.

That probably explaines the increase in sales.

What caused the surge in EU sales? I dont think it was bundled either. Either way, they hopefully at least have established the name so the next game will sell, especially if they bundle it with a Arcade model so kids would pick it up

Does anyone know whether it's still getting bundled in Others? It's showing great legs if it isn't.

The bulk of sales were in Europe, cos the game is packed with the console. I give it a try. This game is great, but for kids.

Anyone dismissing this as stupid is just a dumb troll...It's Rare's best game(it's more like an interactive toy than a game) for years...The creatures are beautifully rendered and have a majical 'Pixar' polish...I played it to death over xmas'06...Under the colourful enchanting wonderland you will find incest, cannibalism, cross breeding, genocide, open warfare and the bashing open of cutesy creatures with a shovel:)
Skeptics should pick up a cheap copy and play at least until you expand your garden to maximum size...

Nothing wrong with selling 1.1 million copies, even if half of them are at $20.

This game is absolutely great. But did they really expect people to buy a game about gardening and raising paper animals? It turns people off and they never experience what a great game this really is.

One of the best 'casually' paced Xbox 360 games out there. A totally fun, building sort of game without bloodshed and language issues.

I thought that was pretty good actually since the bulk of sales were in Europe. Is it a pack in over there? And 20 Pounds over there is pretty good if that's what you meant.

even though it sold a million as a $20 game and as a pack-in, it is still notable. Good for rare.

Is this game being bundled with any consoles in the US? If not its having a surprising, though well-deserved, resurgence.
