The numbers come with a caveat, however: These sales reflect 'box' sales, not digital.


 


Enough said.

Wrong. We don't have bandwidth caps (I think I downloaded over 100gb the last month because of steam) and digital is quite popular in the UK. Hell, I haven't bought a single retail game in the last 1-2 years. Although I am a steam freak who loves to get everything on Steam :P

Anyways who cares about sales in the UK? We are such a small country -_-

I know someone  that works highlevel for a national  gaming outlet . The reason your seeing sales fall is not because people don't want it they just are having trouble getting enough copys of ToR to keep up with demand .


Hate to pee on the doom and gloom merchants fires but those are the facts . I bet if you take into consideration the UK digital sales then you'd see a increase in the numbers of sales .


Of course you can choose mmorpg.com gossip over facts if you want to .

I live in the UK and find the opposite. Boxed games are always more expensive than digital download at release. And no all of us have download caps ;)

You can easily find the box in the UK for 35£. That's 41€. Shipping included throughout Europe (everyone's ordering there).

My digital download form Origin was 54€.

Nothing surprises me these days, luckily I am getting into the industry to create my own surprises.

1/03/12 1:27:34 PM#67

Isn't this true for any game that releases just for computer? I don't understand why this is news worthy.

I'm not surprised either way.



 


How could word of mouth advertising even be happening? Most of the people who bought the game haven't left their house or talked to their family in weeks.

Not accounting digital? hardly a surprise as they pushed digital pretty hard and thats how most people got it. The game is excellent with servers continuinng to fill up and new ones being opened on maintenance days, and then filling up. Like the guy above me said, most people havent left their house it seems rofl

If digital purchases are so popular, why were so many more people buying boxes a week ago?  Why the change to digital downloads, if its not actually a decline in sales?

 

When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

Posting from my phone so I can't make it a direct link but it talks about a supply problem.

 

Of course, people from many countries in Europe (and elsewhere) are ordering online from the UK as everything is cheaper there. (Movies, PC games, console games, etc...).

So if they limited the boxes there's no wonder it's sold out in the UK.

 

[UPDATED] Leo Olebe, BioWare’s Director of Marketing posted a Tweet that may explain some of the drop in sales volume. Remember how supplies were limited to ensure a good launch of the service? Yep:

@LeoOlebe @askajedi We limited the supply upfront so the game is very hard to find right now.  We’re getting more out there for y’all ASAP!

 

i don't know why he thinks its hard to find, the stores around my area still have lots of them on the shelves.  maybe he means just in certain areas.

I'll put it this way........

Some place like La Junta, CO should have plenty of copies left since the total population is less than 8k

Places like Atl, Ga. will not with a population of 400k+  or NY boasting around 8mil. 

Chain retailers tend to come up with a base number all stores should get then send extra to stores that seem to sale higher volume on video games in general. 

This is why you end up with plenty of copies on shelves in a place like La Junta and end up with 0 left in a place like NYC or ATL or even London. 

wasnt talking about my small town, which barely gets anything was talking about the cities like pueblo and colorado springs.  i wouldn't bring up my town because all it has is a wal-mart and one tiny gamestop lol

OK before everyone gets excited about this remember the charts SBFord is talking about is are cross platform charts and include budget games and ones in sales . I brought a few of these single player games in the sales myself ( loving dead island by the way )

This is the PC game chart from the same website for the 31 st December for full priced games

http://www.chart-track.co.uk/index.jsp?c=p/software/uk/latest/index_test.jsp&ct=110022 

As you can plainly see StarWars ToR is in second place .

Perhaps SBFord should have posted this link as well and researched it a bit better ? It makes a good attention grabbing headline but if wouldn't have seemed half as effective if it have said .

Retails Sales Plummet in the UK StarWars ToR falls to number 2 in the PC game chart .

Those are the facts . The articles just a tad sensationalist ..

Digital these days is two click and download why would i waste; Time and money on petrol when it is just so easy to buy online. Game is still great with friends, interesting post for info but not sure it has any real relevance at this point.

That's the norm around here, the game  is clearly ontrack to be the biggest online rpg anywhere and people will try and convince you it's going to be f2p in 2 months.

The miss-information machine rivals North Korea, all because we are talking about millions of subs at stake, you have to go look for yourself to see the 123 North American servers are going to need to be increased yet again due to server population.

I think this doesn't particularly reflect on the state of Old Republic's success in the UK. Retailers such as GAME and GameStation have been trimming their PC sections for years, to the point where its mostly a shelving space left for Football Manager and The Sims 3: Let's Get New Hats Pack. Boxes just don't seem to shift like they used to, I suppose that's where Steam picks up the slack.



 


This is so true. I don't even buy PC games in stores anymore because I can't find the ones I want at a reasonable price. Heck, the over day I went to buy Battlefield 3 and the HMV store had huge sections for the respective consolse but I couldn't even find the PC Games section.

Not surprising, considering TORcraft offers nothing new. 


 


I guess it will be the same story as with Dragon age II. People will buy buy buy. Then they will see what they bought and hype will slowly die.
