Game not selling well

I just checked vgchartz to see how well the game is selling, and it has done pretty poorly. Across all platforms, it has sold only 210,000 copies. I feel like that terrible movie tie-in game that High Moon did between War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron really screwed the franchise. Anyone else have thoughts?

Well before you can use these figures to determine if the game is selling poorly you have to determine a baseline.

Is this just for units sold on the PS3 or the 360?

Is it regional?

etc.

Then you have to compare it too games of a similar category. It's not fair to compare a transformers game to a Halo 4 or Call of Duty which always breaks records when released.

That unit number is for ALL platforms worldwide. War for Cybertron sold over 500,000 units in its first week of release, so this is a big, big drop-off.

Doesn't surprise me, personally I enjoyed WFC a lot more than FOC

However Fall of cybertron totaled almost a million copies worldwide cross platform....
Did you really just revive a thread when it wasn't needed?
