Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion Sets Sales Record

Stardock announces that Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion is smashing all the company's previous sales records. They offer some details on this, including some praise for the impact of sales on Steam, clearly putting the rivalry over once having owned the competing Impulse service in the rearview:

  • The company has sold more than 100,000 copies digitally to date of Rebellion
  • The company’s internal projections factored in a large “cannibalization” percentage of its own direct sales through its web site and sales from its former digital distribution platform Impulse (now owned and operated by GameStop.)
    • Sale stats showed that Steam sales did NOT cannibalize those sales
    • Steam sales instead replaced what Stardock has usually seen via sell-in at retail

There's no need for a test. It's been tested thousands of times by other players, discussed on forums all around the internet and confirmed by the developer to be an engine issue to be fixed in the next generation. For the umpteenth time your experience is not universal, the fact that it runs "perfectly" for you is both great and a pointless statistic. Noone here has disputed your experience. You however continue to dispute us.

My PC has no problem. It handles all modern games with no issues. "Needing more horsepower" is a pointless argument, because of the old nature of the engine the ONLY aspect that will help the game is a single fast CPU core. Know what the recommended (note: recommended, not required) CPU is for the game? A puny Core 2 Duo @ 2Ghz. Video card is irrelevant as it's a DX9 only CPU bottlenecked game. Ram is irrelevant as it's 32-bit only. If you feel the recommended CPU for this single core game should be an expensive Core I7 then maybe you should tell Ironclad.

"I'm not being an ass about this"

What do you call blaming us for the decline of PC gaming then? I noticed that post was deleted but it was so outrageous the comments stuck in my head. Or how about telling Prez he didn't know what game he was talking about when he only made a simple (and obvious) typo?

I guess you just can't stop blaming us. I wash my hands of the conversation and regret that you turned a polite discussion of a great game into this. I will not respond to your comments any further, something I should have done much earlier.
