Aliens: Colonial Marines
Aliens: Colonial Marines Sells Over 1.3 Million Copies
Written By
View author's profile

Aliens: Colonial Marines has sold over 1.3 million units, SEGA has revealed.

That figure is accurate up until the end of the company’s fiscal year ending March 31st, and with the game still hanging around the charts like a stink, it seems likely to creep towards 1.5 million.

All this despite being utterly, utterly shite, enduring allegations of pre-release trickery and some muddy accusations about who actually made the damn thing. That’s the power of a strong brand.

Thankfully, however, the really-quite-good Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed was SEGA’s biggest seller, beating Aliens: Colonial Marines by 50,000 units, (although it was released on more platforms).

Earlier today it was revealed that Aliens: Colonial Marines co-developer TimeGate has laid off all its staff, following a legal battle with publisher SouthPeak Interactive.

this is why, most people are:Sheep:1. A group of people who lack the capacity for careful consideration, imagination, or individual thought, who thusly go with the group and allow terrible trends and events to unfold and make us all miserable.

I assume most of the sales are based off of the IP.

If only Gearbox hadn't squandered their shot at the Aliens franchise.

The problem was people who bought it saying "it's not as bad as they say" so others buy it and they don't feel so stupid for buying it in the first place!

Make a sequel and see how well that sells, my guess is no so well.

I'm so glad I'm not a fan of this IP, or I'd have probably bought this, or should I say I would have been robbed for this.

You idiots, please don't tell me people payed full retail price for this game just for achievements, this generation of gamers have lost me, I don't get it.
I give people the benefit of the doubt though, and say they were sucked in by the fake marketing campaign.

I'm still glad I didn't buy this game after how every things turned out with it, I was really looking forwards to it, but didn't want to blindly buy it, knowing all to well what movie games of any kind are normally like.
I can't believe that a game like this can out sale good games though :/ guess it's probably because the game that we'd been lead up to believing we where going to buy, was something else.

With regards to the layoffs, I hate to see people lose their jobs, but heads deserved to roll for this.

I was close to buying this on impulse, but with dead space coming out the previous week, I chose to wait for reviews. Also, I bought duke nukem out of faith and trust, and I don't forget burns like that so easily. I wasn't a huge fan of borderlands to begin with, but after this, ill probably never touch anything that came into contact with gearbox for a good long while, unless by some miracle, they redeem their name.

I bet that most of the people that are slagging off Aliens haven't even bothered to play the game for themselves! I ignored all bad reviews and rented the game, and I love it. I'm on my 2nd playthrough now and may even go through it again. It's had more action in my Xbox than Hale 4. Which I played the 1st level and never put it back on! Goes without saying I s'pose!

I admit to buying the CE with the cool statue and DLC but then saw the reviews, watched the now famous "demo" footage and proceeded to return it to GAME for a full refund. It's now half the £70 I paid BUT I'm still not sure whether to buy or not - I'm still unsure where the screenshots used on this site are from as they all seem to be cutscenes :s

In it's defence, everyone I know who kept it insists it's a bit of fun.

Honestly I didn't find the game too bad. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I rented it instead of coughing up the full £40, but I enjoyed what I played - particularly the online component, which was a lot of fun in a decent lobby.
A solid 6/10 seems a fair review score to me.

most of us who bought it had pre-ordered on the strength of the demo they released at E3 along with the supposed quality of borderlands, and previous gearbox titles

we didn't expect that they'd ship it to some tiny company, after 5 years of self pleasuring, and then sell us what they got back....

all blame for this game lies with gearbox, they took sega's money, and made BL2 with it (badly I might add) and whatever was left they spent on paying timegate for their work

how does your loader look nice, it looks like if you breathe near it, it will fall apart, badly painted, looks like 20p worth of material with another 20p worth of effort went into it (saw my nephews, thankfully I've given up on consoles, so I at least saved a lot compared to console gamers, I payed £38 for game & season pass....which also isn't what they advertised it was supposed to add some to the story (or at least one pack was, when they mentioned it, before they knew how bad the game was I presume)

I think next time there is a review embargo (meaning a dev & publisher knows a game is utter shit) we go to their offices, and leave all the shit we could collect on our way there on the step, and smear it on the cars

tired of being treated like a moron for liking aliens & games, you motherfuckers wonder why people turn to piracy, that shit right there, some spent £80 on LE of A:CM, which we were lied to, yet again by that fat cunt pitchford, some one force him to eat his babies

Its been said a couple of times in this thread already but I would just like to echo I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS GEN OF GAMERS! As a person who has been playing games since the 1600 I don't understand the mindless zombies who continue to waste hard earned money on shit and keep the bubble of mediocrity afloat. But then again this is the same generation of gamers who continue to ride the COD band wagon and call it the greatest thing since sliced bread. And what the fuck has COD done to push the franchise envelope ahead in ten years? But I digress. As long as there is 1.3 mindless zombies out there game developers will never be willing to take the big plunge which in turn affects the quality( or lack there of) product we receive. So you keep it up you Mein Kampf zombies. Boy if there has ever been a time to start pirating it would damn sure be now.

watched a review of this game recently that has made me want to play it. Glitches, bugs, stupid AI aside.

Just seems an easy to pick up play game with out thinking, & after all the overly harsh reviews of Duke Nukem makes me consider it more tbf.
(yeagh it played like an old PC game -no problem with that, yeagh its not as good as duke Nukem 3d -what has been?).

I'm not stupid enough (or rich enough) to buy a game on release date (with exclusions to some) but you would have to seriously consider opinions and waiting for any kind of movie tie in, no matter the title (well maybe not the lego series as you know what you are getting)

1.3 million copies? Damn, those are impressive numbers, considering how crap the game was at launch. Maybe in time updates will make it better, but I'm still going to wait till this drops to $20 (or even less) before I even think about touching this game.

In the meantime, I'll be sticking with Borderlands 2 and, uh, Aliens vs. Predator.

I've never played Aliens: Colonial Marines, but I'll definitely be buying it eventually, and it's not because I'm a mindless drone or a "sheep". I've found that almost every game that I'd consider a favorite or recommend to others is a game that either 1. professional reviewers shit all over, or 2. people in general have never heard of, ex. Dead Island, Gun, Mafia 2.

This news is tragic on every level.

This whole aliens colonial marines thing was hyped up so big, and then videos were shown. It was like seeing a commercial for the best looking apple pie you've ever seen. You go to the store and see it sitting there on the shelf and it looks so delicious like the best pie you have ever seen. You get home and open the box, cut into the pie only to find not apples inside.. but feces.

ooooooh $260. but on topic, seriously the gresed wheel that is the "aliens is shit "bandwagon seems to have a speed bump. think about it logically, a game that is supposedly as BAD as CM, pulls sales numbers like this show a few things (at least) 1. people (not gamers) & fans of the series still care about the franchise bespite all the BS from other people.2. its still a popular game MP wise if its still hanging in charts, look at Mass Effect 3 MP, everyone before release tried to boycot the MP, but its still very popular 3.ultimately if the game is a steaming pile than its SEGA's fault for not having QA before release.
people need to lighten up, & find soething else to bitch about. 1.3 million? to me thats a win, & i enjoyed the game for what it was, graphics? in games today id take co-op over graphics anyday. but then again, CoD is keeping it fresh with the same game engine for 5 years (that, was sarcasm). get over it

People buying something on the back of the brand name doesn't make a product good. I'll point to the 7 million units that Atari VCS Pacman sold, and I'll also point to its part in the 1983 videogame market crash.

Only 1 person (#63) seems to realize this DOES NOT mean 1.3 million people bought the game...this number represents how many units were sold BY THE PUBLISHER. That means Gamestop, Best Buy, Wal Mart, Redbox, Blockbuster, Gamefly, etc purchased 1.3 million copies of the game which they intended to sell based on reservation numbers and the "hype" factor. All the new copies of the game you see sitting on the shelves at your local store are these "sold" copies.

@18 No offense, but people like you with extremely high gamerscores tend to have low standards when it comes to games. You people play EVERYTHING, so when you play a game like Aliens CM you think to yourself, "It was alright. I've played 100+ worse games than this."

Yeah because it got a 20 dollar price drop day I mean a 40 dollar game to most stupid people is a deal.

I still won't buy it... not even for 10 bucks. It would probably have to be found or given to me.

I got it for £10 as a "when bought with" with dead island riptide at game. I think they are still knocking it out that cheap with any chart game now and its the limited ed with 3 or so dlc's, one of which i think is exclusive to game. How many people would buy a brand new limited ed of a game, only a month or two after its release for a quarter of its price ? Id say that helps make up a large chunk of the 1.3 million sold

Fuck that shit I like the game and that's all that matters I got respect for the cats who don't dig this game but I love it,one thing though I noticed mad peeps talkin shit about the game before they even played it only goin on what they read or what other people said! Eeesh alot of people are afraid to say what they really mean but are to scared that other people will give them shit cause the majority "says" they don't like it......damn
