Epic on Bulletstorm Sales

Kotaku has some perspective on sales of Bulletstorm from Epic president Mike Capps, after hearing from EA that People Can Fly's recent first-person shooter "under-performed," and learning from a financial analyst that the game barely sold 300,000 units in its first month of availability. Capps confirms that the game didn't make them any money, but still thinks it was a worthy project as he looks ahead to PCF's next project. They paraphrase him saying: "Capps says they could have taken the easy route all along, not done Bulletstorm and gotten People Can Fly, the Epic-owned Polish development studio on that game to just chrun [sic] out Gears of War content. That's not what he wants those folks doing. That's not what he wants Epic doing." They also offer a direct quote. "The studio has shipped AAA content," he said. "The next thing we do with People Can Fly will be great."

There are quite a few modern shooters without jump

No, there is a handful and most of them are from the same Tom Clancy family of games.

There is no factual evidence that supports your opinion.

You mean other than the dozens of shooters released in the last 10 years that do have jump, have sold way more than any of the Tom Clancy games have, versus the half dozen or so that you listed that don't have jump?

By your theory, if your half dozen games without jump means that people don't care if a game has jump or not, then I guess the several dozen games with jump that have sold way way more than any of your Tom Clancy games, means that is factual evidence to support my opinion.

Now, do you see how fucking ridiculously stupid your so called evidence is? If you don't agree with me, then it automatically cancels out your own "proof". So either way, your argument is asinine.
