My main problem with the game is the schizophrenic design.....
Sums up the game design perfectly, whether it's due to publisher interference or developer incompetence. Since there is a corporation involved, there's really no hope things will improve. Narcissism doesn't exist in reality, just along side it.

Yeah, this is part of my surprise at their disappointment. This game will have a long tail. Lots of people are interested in this game, just not at full price (were I a richer man...). The 4 million they sold the first week must have covered costs, so everything here on out should be gravy.
If they are disappointed at the sales, and if it cost $100 million, it might not have.
I really don't understand, is there anyway possible that 4 million units, (say for $50 each) totaling $200 million in the first week not be enough?

Don't get me wrong I like the game, it's just poorly handled in several important ways. I really do wonder if it all comes back to console mentality. Almost every potentially great game seems to be drug down by shitty design decisions.
