Oh... 35th for PlayStation all stars has got to hurt, I get the feeling that superbot is going to be mighty disappointed about this. Epic Mickey 2 poor performance is a shame, but I can't really see who is the audience for this is.

    If you're talking about PSASBR, then I guess a lot of people would rather wait for the next super smash bros or capcom fighting game. Not many people are interested in something that seems to be a halfway house, jack of all trades and master of none.

    On the other hand, if you mean epic mickey I don't know who they think will buy this game (forgetting the fact it was released in November of all months). It doesn't seem to be aimed at either kids or adults to me.

    So yeah, I can't see anyone wanting these games, or at least not right now.

    My partner saw the Wonderbook Spells advert on TV yesterday and just said: 'that'll get old by Boxing Day'.

    A concise summary of my thoughts on the matter.

    I can perhaps see PSASBR (phew) selling a few copies over time... but nowhere near the amount Sony seem to have thought it would. I mean, had I the facvilities to hand, I would probably check it out... but unlike Smash Brothers, I wouldn't pay full price for it.

      PSASBR, Epic Monkey is rental inm my eyes anyway. Does look alright mind but have other games I would rather get through.

      @clockpunk
      Yeah they have splashed a lot of money on advertising. Seen PSASBR and Wonderbook a few times on TV and on websites.
      I think they should push PSN+ more if anything, they really do need Beyond and The Last of Us to come out now rather than next year.

      I imagine you and your partner are not the target audience for Wonderbook. Someone in my house likes the look of it and I don't believe she will get bored of it quickly... not that she is getting it.

      @dav2612 - oh, the context of the comment wasn't for *us* personally, but for the target audience indeed (including a younger nephew, to provide immediate context, but she saw how it would be so limited, which falls in line with reviews that I - not she - have read).

      On another note - that's a shame. Tongue
