Homefront Sells 375K in One Day

In spite of news that THQ stock has dropped in value due to reviews of Homefront, this story says the first-person shooter sold 375,000 copies in the U.S. in its first day of sales. This figure, which does not include Europe, seems pretty respectable, though they note that juggernaut Call of Duty: Black Ops sold 5.6 million copies on its first day in stores in North America and the United Kingdom. "We are delighted with first day sales for 'Homefront' and are already fulfilling re-orders for the game from multiple retailers," Brian Farrell, THQ's chief executive said in a statement.

I don't know why CoD games get away with 5 hours of scripted singleplayer with no points deducted from the score but Homefront obviously didn't.

The complaints seem to really be that Homefront isn't well polished, does nothing new, and fails to live up to potential.

For me, I'd rather a shorter game than a padded game (obviously) but five is just too short. And it doesn't surprise me that, even before launch, THQ was talking about moving Kaos to a larger studio. Aside from the costs of NYC and difficulty of finding talent, it seems like Kaos needs some help. They've got good ideas but just can't pull everything together, if even just in amount of content. Put them in Montreal as part of a much larger studio and you can pull people off of a just-completing project and staff them temporarily with Kaos to increase/polish content.
