So Rage 2 physical sales are down? Why is that even news. ohhh because we are pretending Physical sales matter.
You obviously only read the headline. The article also has Steam player stats. Those numbers are abysmal for a new release.
If you check the Steam top games stats right now then Rage 2 has barely made it into the top 100 today at 87th place with a peak number of players at around 4.5K. That's beyond pathetic for a new AAA release.
Those numbers make me very happy though. Maybe this way Bethesda will learn that people aren't willing to put up with piecemeal games anymore (yeah, yeah, I know it is more likely they will attribute the sales failure to the absence of multiplayer). The price should also come crashing down much sooner since they will be forced to salvage whatever is left in this wreck.
Doesn't matter to me. I won't buy their half-assed, unfinished piecemeal piece of shit before there is a GOTY. Fuck them. Super glad this garbage tanked hard.
