    Cuphead Surpasses 5 Million Copies Sold

    As Cuphead turns 2, the sales continue to climb.

    In the course of just two years, the phenomenally animated run-and-gun platformer, Cuphead, has surpassed 5 million copies sold. This is according to a celebratory statement issued by the game's developer, Studio MDHR.

    This announcement also includes word of a 20% off sale for the rest of the week. This sale includes all available platforms: Xbox One, PC, macOS, and the Nintendo Switch.

    Cuphead had previously hit the 4 million sales mark just back in July. That means that in just about...

    Borderlands 3 Becomes Fastest Selling Title Published by 2K

    Sales surpassed 5 million units in first five days.

    2K announced this past week that Borderlands 3 sales have surpassed more than 5 million units in its first five days of being on sale. They note that "50% more consumers purchased Borderlands 3 versus sales of its predecessor." They do specify here that they are talking about Borderlands 2 and not Borderlands: The Pre-sequel when talking about the "predecessor" here.

    This equates to a few things for 2K. First, this makes Borderlands 3 the fastest-selling game in 2K's history...

    Gears 5 Surpasses 3 Million Players in First Week

    Big numbers bolstered by cheap Game Pass subscriptions.

    The Coalition's Gears 5 has seen a moderate amount of success. Microsoft revealed that the Xbox Game Studios published title has surpassed 3 million players across all platforms in its first week. This impressive number is undoubtedly bolstered by a huge number of users taking up Microsoft on their very generous Game Pass offers.

    Like other first-party titles, Gears 5 was another Xbox One game that was available on Xbox Game Pass the same day as its retail release. It was also made available...

    'Absolute Majority' of Metro Exodus Sales Were on Consoles

    THQ Nordic founder tries to avoid talking about Epic Games Store sales figures.

    Lars Wingefors, THQ Nordic's CEO and founder, seemed rather reserved when talking about the sales figures for some of THQ's most publicized releases this past year. Specifically, he shied away from talking specifics when it comes to PC sales of games like Metro Exodus and outright ignores another question regarding sales of Satisfactory.

    A lot of this information came courtesy of the latest earnings call for the company.

    According to those who listened...

    Days Gone Outperforms God of War in Japan

    Something something "but people are tired of zombie games" something something.

    According to reports passed along to the public by Benji-Sales on Twitter, launch week sales of Days Gone has surpassed both God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn in Japan.

    Sales Figures for Anthem are Half Those of Andromeda in UK


    As far as physical retail sales go, Anthem was the best selling game in the UK in its first week of release.

    That's the extent of the good news.

    The bad news is that it sold roughly half of the total number of units BioWare's previous title sold in its first week. That's right, Mass "My Face is Tired" Effect Andromeda outsold BioWare's latest and, er, let's just leave it at "latest."

    Digital sales for these titles are not included in these sales figures. Meaning that the number of units sold on services...

  • EA Apparently Blames Weak Battlefield V Sales on Prioritizing Campaign Over Battle Royale


    Just when you thought the general rabble about Battlefield V was finally quieting down, EA released their Q3 2019 financials to investors today. In doing so, EA's top brass say that Battlefield V sold roughly 1 million units below expectations because development prioritized a single player campaign over getting a battle royale mode ready for launch.

    To its credit, Battlefield V still sold 7.3 million units across all platforms, but it's still considered underperforming according to EA's expectations. This disappointment was conveyed today by EA CEO...

    Kingdom Hearts 3 Ships 5 Million Units Already


    It seems as though Kingdom Hearts fans are super thirsty because Square Enix has already shipped 5 million copies of Kingdom Hearts 3. While this doesn't necessarily mean that the game has sold 5 million units, it's still a very good indicator that the game is selling like hot cakes. Kingdom Hearts 3 was just released on January 29, 2019.

    Square Enix did confirm that the 5 million figure does include both digital and physical units. They also go on to confirm that Kingdom Hearts 3 is the fastest selling game in the history of the franchise. This game...

    You Spent Over $43 Billion on Video Games in 2018


    According to The NPD Group, consumers spent over $43 billion on video games throughout 2018. That marks an 18% increase over 2017 spending. There are a couple of important notes about this. This figure is for both software and hardware. It also does not take into account digital sales since the NPD cannot reliably track digital sales figures.

    The best selling title of the year was Red Dead Redemption 2. The second and third best selling titles in 2018 were Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and NBA 2K19 respectively.

    Though the best offering from...

    Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales Sales Disappoint CD Projekt RED

    Sales figures for Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales have been disappointing, at least to developer CD Projekt RED. It turns out that the GOG exclusivity didn't really work out all that well for them. That certainly seems to explain why we saw the game quickly appearing on Steam just a couple of weeks after its initial GOG release.

    This news came during CD Projekt RED's financial call yesterday. CEO Adam Kicinski provided the following.
    "The game appealed to the community, which drove up our expectations regarding sales. Unfortunately, as yet, these

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 Sold More Units in 8 Days than Red Dead Redemption Sold in 8 Years

    As if there were any lingering doubt about how much of a sales success Red Dead Redemption 2 is, this latest blurb in the Q2 2019 financial report from Take-Two will put some things into perspective.

    Take-Two says that Red Dead Redemption 2 sold more units in eight days than Red Dead Redemption sold in eight years. That is a staggering difference there.

    The report goes on to say that Red Dead Redemption 2 has already sold over 17 million units worldwide. Red Dead Redemption 2 has only been on sale for less than two weeks now. As far as...

    Red Dead Redemption 2 Surpasses $725 Million in 3 Days

    Red Dead Redemption 2 has apparently achieved the biggest opening weekend of all time across all forms of entertainment. This at least what Rockstar is telling me and why would they lie about their own game release? Do you really think someone would do that? How distrusting you are. So what does "biggest opening weekend of all time" really mean? Well, it means that Red Dead Redemption 2 had the biggest opening weekend in retail sell-through across all media types. It also had the second biggest launch (over three days) across all entertainment releases. I'm not sur...

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Sales Surpasses $500 Million in Three Days

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Sales Surpasses $500 Million in Three Days

    The lack of a single player campaign sure as hell doesn't seem to matter to most of the gaming world, as evident by the fact that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has pulled in over $500 million (USD) in worldwide sales just over its launch weekend.

    To put it perspective, that is about the same amount that Call of Duty: WWII pulled in last year. However, it is down ever so slightly from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 that pulled in over $550 million in its first three days.
    "Black Ops 4 is off to a blockbuster start," said Activision executive vice president

  • Reports of "Weak" Battlefield 5 Pre-Orders Attributed to Lack of Informative Sources from Analyst

    Just a week ago, a number of news stories popped up about weak pre-order sales figures for Battlefield V. We were also among the many outlets that put up at least one story about this. Many of us even went so far as to say that EA's decision to sandwich Battlefield V's release between the year's two most anticipated titles were not doing the game any favors. And while it's still probably true that the earlier lack of marketing and the release date aren't really doing Battlefield 5 any favors, it also might not be selling as badly as we thought. On August 1...
