Motorstorm Apocalypse is ridiculous!!! Unbelievable levels, I have never seen a level move and react in any game as it does in this game, its remarkable. I am in the end of the second characters story and this mission has a train flying through the air and crashing on me, entire roads raising up, fighterjets blowing up buildings around me, its crazy!

I don't believe for one second that Dead Space 3 needs to sell 5 million to break even. Unless it's jumping from one gen to the next or you're drastically changing a game's engine aren't sequels typically cheaper to make?

Consider the source (notenoughshaders.com) It is a wild conjuration of what Gibeua actually said:

"Gibeau told CVG that Dead Space 3 is aiming for 5 million copies sold in order for the franchise to continue.

"In general we're thinking about how we make this a more broadly appealing franchise, because ultimately you need to get to audience sizes of around five million to really continue to invest in an IP like Dead Space. Anything less than that and it becomes quite difficult financially given how expensive it is to make games and market them. " link

He said he needed it to continue to invest in the franchise, not to make the game break even.

Meaning, if an "IP like Dead Space" wants to make it into the next generation, they need to see some real support for it. Otherwise they won't spend the money to "make and market" the franchise.

To suggest that a third game in the current engine is going to cost $300 million to make is laughable.

But this is into the weeds, I'm not going to argue this point by point.

The cost or how much it needs to make is not the issue. Its that a goal of 5 million is what they consider the limit to where it would be something profitable or not, that is insane. Very very few franchises have games that sell that much, and DS is not one of them. What is EA smoking.

Read it again he did not day that Dead Space 3 needed 5. million sales to be profitable.


In fact, since the game is still in development no one cansay what it will need to sell to break even.

The one and only thing I DO NOT like about Theatrhythm is: You can tell Square had little to no interest in actually localizing it. It was probably --AFTER-- they showed it to a few American website/gaming journalists and seeing their reaction to it that they actually made the decision to do so... and they did so with VERY little effort, and it shows. All of the backgrounds and event scenes that happen in the game are from the Japanese versions of the games. "What's the big deal?" you may ask... If the game had Japanese text in it, that's what they show in the backgrounds of the game! You will relive certain important events from the last 25 years of the Final Fantasy series... but you won't be able to --READ-- what's going on! It's frustrating seeing scenes from FF1 and 2 that you recognize, but you can't read what's going in in that particular scene! DUMB!



All in all we're probalby just lucky that it was localised in any form.

Is it much better than the original? The original seemed no more dynamic than Excite Truck. WinkWink
