I'm surprised that Twisted Metal 2012 apparently outsold Resident Evil Revelations. I thought RE:R would have done really well given the rabid fanbase of both console and franchise.

I'm curious.

Is Kingdoms of Amular on the PC any good?
The $60 price tag really puts me off.

Or did people only buy it for the TF2 items?
Personally, I bought the game and it was awesome... The graphics are pretty good and so is the story and gameplay... It's pretty much open world like Skyrim, although the world is somewhat smaller, it still has tons of side quests and stuff, and it's pretty awesome to make your own equipment on the game. =3

On topic, people sure like war games. .-."

o nice thank you

Not News this goes in the General gaming section like all the other Sales topics :D
You used to post sales topics in USN aswell, you should be the last guy to complain.
I think he's complaining because every time he posts something like this, it gets moved.
His threads get moved because they're Valwinated and specifically tailored to show his disapproval of the PSVita - manipulation of data or omitting certain crucial parts of articles included.

It's fun.
It's just no where near $60 of fun.

EDIT: and to be very clear on that, the only PC games that really launch at $60 are gigantic name titles like CoD and Skyrim. I actually laughed out loud that this game from a brand new dev (EA published or not) had the balls to launch on PC for $60.

EA has decision on how much it is, devs have nothing to do with it.

Ah, alright then.
I tried the demo about a week ago and just wasn't sure if it was worth $60 to me.
I'll probably just wait for it to be on sale.

NDS got a 70%+ boost this month, it's still selling like the gba was, i wonder how much longer it can go on for.
People figured out that the 3DS doesn't offer much just yet and the DS is just as capable at running DS games, soooo...

Gaming done cheaply, yay!
I'll repeat what I said on NeoGAF but the DS has made a great impact in the West, everyone and their grandma has one. There's nothing really dragging the casual market to the 3DS right now.

Correct me if i'm wrong, the price difference between these two devices isn't that much, paying a few extra pennies means they get a next gen handheld and a whole lot of ds games to play on top of that.

Not pennies, pounds. For some people it is a big difference to pay the extra 30 odd pounds, especially if they're not particularily thrilled by the titles on the console. I'm not even mentioning the second-hand market here since nobody counts how many DS'es are sold pre-owned, but you can get one for even less then half the price of a 3DS... so... it's a good deal, hmm? ;)
