So How's Medal Of Honor Sold?

Illustration for article titled So Hows Medal Of Honor Sold?

So Medal of Honor wasn't as great as some, myself included, were expecting. Pity. Critical apathy doesn't always translate into poor sales, though, so let's look at how the game's done at retail thus far.

According to publisher Electronic Arts, the game has sold 1.5 million copies across the US, Europe and Asia since its release last week. Those numbers would be healthy for most games, but for a title with such heavy marketing and buzz behind it - and one appearing on PC, 360 and PS3 - you can bet EA were hoping they'd be a little healthier.

Especially when you have to wonder whether sales will fall off rather quickly once word gets around that the game's not so good.

While this mediocre piece of unoriginal ass sells efortlessly 1.5 million units even with bad reviews Im sad for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Such a good game with an 86 metacritic and a solid 9 for me will struggle to sell 1million lifetime.

Fuck this.
