Don't think Little Big Planet should be in there. If it sold 200,000 units in the uk. I suppose it would be over estimated that Game sold half of the units. 100,000 now divide that by the number of days sales it had before Christmas which is 49 that equals 2041 units perday. Now divide that by the numer of Game stores 2041/1348 = 1.5 Sales per store per day. Shocking!

Lol very true TBH except you haven't factored in Online game sales. Wich will probably bring instore sales to less than 1 per store per day! Actually looking at the calculations approx 1 PS3 was sold per day in store and probably had LBP bundled in with it or at least half of the sales. So was there a big take up of this game by PS3 owners not purchasing the console at christmas? Actually looks like a no.

It looks like PS3 owners need to get their heads in gear!

It's not PS3 owners who should get their heads in gear; it's Sony who should sort out their bloody marketing! I mean, they've got a really good first-party line up now, and they still can't accumulate any good sales.

The console needs a price cut and some heavy marketing if there's any hope of its worldwide sales ever catching up with the 360.

I keep hearing that - some people say they saw loads of advertising for it, others (like me) saw somewhere between barely anything and nothing.

I saw one TV advert for it just after the whole music removal delay debacle and obviously it was in the paper loads around that time, but that was it. Nothing else, not in newspapers, magazines, no TV adverts, zip.

I have the game anyway, so can I be exempt from your wrath?! Wink

Yes TriggerHappytel lol. Good guy! If Sony make good games as this one is then PS3 owners should buy them. This is why Sony is struggling. Games make the money not consoles. And when sales are this rubbish for a console no wonder they're getting these problems. I think most of our forum guys who own a PS3 are exempt from my wrath. They all seem to buy and defend the exclusives even the rubbish ones. (MGS4 cough cough lol.) << Thats a Joke its too sh*t to be classed as rubbish ha ha. Seriously i'm kinda joking. Anyhow in my eyes there was extreme levels of advertising. Before christmas i can pretty much say it was on in between every primetime show on most channels massive campaign push. And after all that cash it's kinda a flop sales wise.

I saw a good few adverts for LBP but in general I saw more mention of the 360 in advertising. A demo might have also helped.

I own a PS3 and haven't bought the game so I accept your wrath.

Ah, c'mon Dav, you can buy it online for £18 and it's the best PS3 game yet so there really are no excuses!
