Hayes says early Vanquish sales are encouraging

We already know how Vanquish did on its first day in Japan, but what about the America? Mike Hayes seems pretty positive.

“It’s been in the marketplace for two days, we’ve seen the day one numbers and we’re reasonably encouraged, but I think we need to see the rest of week one and probably week two just to see how it’s going to play out

“The challenge is that it’s a new franchise and that it’s releasing head-to-head with a lot of established franchises in the busiest time of the year.” – Mike Hayes CEO SEGA West

Vanquish came out on October 19th in North America, comes out tomorrow in Europe. Also, IGN gave us a shout out on this article, check the source link.

    In other words, sales are modest. Why the fuck would this game sell well? It's not the game's fault it's good in a way mass audience tards can't appreciate it or that Sega doesn't have the advertising dollars to spam the shit out of it. This game not selling that hot is an industry problem and one more people should be concerned about.

    Blame the executives that popularized 50 million dollar cinematic crap fests with casual gameplay posing as "action" games to the masses for this.

    I mandate that Platinum's stylish, action games from this point on all have mandatory sex ala Bayonetta. It's a cheap way to get attention and sales but who gives a fuck.

    I think vanquish is gonna sell well in long terms. The game stands out and plenty of people like me that havent bought the game on the first week because of being low on money(buying other games), or laziness(lulz)

    I like Mike Hayes. He seems like a level headed guy and he's got all the right words.

    As for Vanquish, I hope it sells in the long run because its a fucking awesome game.

    I swear they said the same thing about Madworld.

  5. Sega Uranus says:

    SEGA had balls to release a new IP next to some of the biggest in the industry. I hope they keep it up and can get some games to sell around the holidays every year, not just Sonic stuff.
