I was watching the Science Channel the other night, and it was about the evolution of games and military. It went on to showing Wolfenstein 3D, and outlawed in Germany and creation of Doom, ect...

Anyways, as they were talking about Wolfenstein 3D, they started talking about the new Wolfenstein game coming out for the Xbox 360. They ssaid that if you buy the new Wolfenstein in the month of August and it outsells Madden 10, you will get a check for $60 back if you keep your recipt and show them.

I did my research, and here you go.

Lead designer of Raven Software Manveer Heir has offered to pay gamers back for their copies of Wolfenstein if the game outsells Madden NFL
http://kona.kontera.com/javascript/lib/imgs/grey_loader.gif
(http://www.digitalbattle.com/2009/08/13/wolfenstein-free-if-outsells-madden/#). His Twitter post reads: “Here’s the deal folks: if Wolfenstein outsells Madden 10 in August I will personally pay for your copy (keep your receipt) – SPREAD THE WORD”

Later, Heir added some information about his offer: “Rules clarification since I’m getting questions: Any platform, using NPD numbers, need a copy of your receipt, you must follow me on Twitter.”
We can assume that the offer is only valid in North America, seeing as NPD only offers services for video games (http://www.digitalbattle.com/2009/08/13/wolfenstein-free-if-outsells-madden/#) in one part of the world. So, be sure to follow (http://twitter.com/manveerheir) the man and save your receipt, in case hell freezes over and Madden doesn’t sell like hotcakes

Anyone know where to find the top sales list for the month of Aug.?


Edit: Has there already been a thread made for this topic? Not sure...

That'd be a great deal, if there were any conceivable chance of it outselling Madden.

Hah, yea. And you cannot buy it online or from Wal-Mart, those recipts don't count.

Also, could you move this to games -.- no idea why I put it in off-topic.

This is just some Wiki site, so obviously the credibility is questionable, but here's the NPD data I found for August 2008--


Madden NFL 09 (X360) - 1.0m
Madden NFL 09 (PS3) - 643K
Madden NFL 09 (PS2) - 424.5K
Wii Fit (Wii) - 394.9K
Mario Kart (Wii) - 328.7K
Wii Play w/remote (Wii) - 200.2K
Soul Calibur IV (X360) -174K
Too Human (X360) -168.2K
Madden NFL 09 (Wii) - 115.8K
Guitar Hero: On Tour (NDS) - 111.2K

I have to admit... the inclusion of Too Human on that top 10 list kinda shocks me.

Lol, i was going to make a thread about this until i saw that he withdrew his offer to do so.
Great promotional offer.... even though we all knew that there was no way in this world that it'd outsell madden.
Still though....a pretty ballsy move.

He withdrew the offer? Seriously? That seems completely pointless. He didn't stand to lose any money from the deal, since like we've said, there was never a chance that it would outsell Madden. At the very least, it looks like a nice-- albeit empty-- gesture.

It's too bad, because this really should happen. I saw it posted earlier this week. I'll be picking up Wolfenstein tomorrow morning, but I'm only renting Madden this year.

There is no way it outsells Madden. I'm assuming that is why it was withdrawn. I already bought my copy of Madden and am enjoying it.

I don't know why it was withdrawn... i mean if there was no way that it could have won anyway.. then he had nothing to worry about.

Ok if they really want a FAIR fight Madden vs Modern Warfare 2
If it's to show them how mush shooters and M rated games do put that up

How is that a fair match? Didn't Call of duty 2, 3, and Modern Warfare get game of the year? Madden Sells at least 2m copies before the year is over, but no matter what madden will never beat COD gamo a gamo .

He'd probably only have to buy a few hundred copies anyways based on people actually reading and following his twitter and whatnot.

IMO... that is in no way a fair fight.
Also, that'd be kind of dumb because the only reason he made that offer is because he knew that Wolfenstein wouldn't beat out Madden.

Lolwut? Madden vs MW2 is not even close at all. Especially since this guy said first month sales. Modern Warfare 2 would absolutely annihilate Madden. Remember that very few people outside of America would even purchase Madden (I can't even imagine why people within America do).

Highly doubt it will outsell madden.

Madden won't outsell MW2 but it will sell alot of copies and guaranteed more than Wolfenstein.

Madden is always one of the top sellers every year ( at least in America). I buy it every year for my love of football. I have to admit that this years Madden looks very impressive graphic wise. The best yet imo. I enjoy the franchise mode and play it well after I get a 1000 on it. This years was a ridiculously easy 1000. I got it in a day or so. I'm about to start up my franchise.

There is no way it will outsell madden.. thats like saying Assassins creed 2 will outsell Modern Warfare 2 in November

*Im not saying Assassins creed 2 isnt going to be an amazing game, im saying MW2 is just going to be a WHOLE lot better!*

No way it's going to outsell Madden. Everybody is always hyped for Madden every year and Wolfenstein won't outsell it.

I don't get what's so special about Madden. I don't find it that fun, if I get the new one it'll be mainly because the Steelers are on it this year!

Wolfenstein used to be a pretty big game ... what happened to the old-days gaming people ?

The only reason they would have made that offer is because they know it will not outsell madden. Cool deal though.

People are ignorant enough to buy the same game with a new game cover and a number change.

yaaaay.

I wish that more game developers or publishers would do this.

Oh well, I got my copy of Wolfenstien for like 46.99 cause Amazon.com messed up on my order by promising release date delivery, so they gave me a ten dollar game credit on the order and free next day shipping so i'll get it tommorow.

That is amazing. Just think of how much money that guy must be making if he sells enough games to be able to buy everyones copies.....kinda scary. Good game though, played it for a few hours tonight.
