Some sales figures we know


Minecraft is over 20 million across all platforms

Diablo 3 sold over 10 million

WoW MoP sold 2.7 million in a week

GW2 sold 3 million in 4 months


I think the real news story here is that the worldwide PC games industry is at $20 billion and China accounts for a 1/3 of that.

The Critical Hit Pretzel!

Oh joy. How I'm some random guy and I'm going to associate that the growth of PC software based off the fact Angry Birds is now on Chrome for free. Just saying.

 

Yeah, the article itself is really quite silly. Diablo 3 we all know is a rather poor game for its genre. Minecraft can just as easily be sold on Mac and Guildwars 2, yeah, its not that stunning of a selling for call as a 'key contributor', I mean Mists of Pandoria outsold it a good deal I'm pretty sure and yet it wasn't mentioned.

 

I'll go let that article writer on some site I've never heard of have fun with apparently his three favorite games and neglecting to really give any proof to something that is virtually impossible to prove.

MoP outsold GW2 by a good deal?  I've been looking for those figures.  Can you post a link?

Media can tend to infalte numbers to make their article seem relevant.

I have no doubt that GW2 was a major seller but some of the stuff in that article is flat out misleading.

You can't really use the term MARKET when claiming 1 billion pc gamers.There has been absolutely ZERO indication of that in Europe and NA.Matter fo fact ,i watch all games and releases closely and i have seen almost no growth at all.I do however agree that China and maybe other Asian markets are growing rapidly.

However assuming it will go from 1 billion to 25 billion in next three years is insane,i would definitely bet against that.

I don't know who DFA is but PCGA PC gaming alliance,is using a nice way to get notice of their supposed  [non profit] organization,by posting big numbers.

I get a laugh each time I see a post from someone who clearly is pissed that GW2 is doing so well. I'm happy for Anet, they changed the game. Wow continues to die at an increasingly rapid rate and future titles are already adapting (see TESO). It wasn't the biggest seller of the year, but it sold more MMOG boxes than anyone else, including Blizzard. You gotta give props to them no matter what your feelings toward Guild Wars 2.

It's really funny how your post amounts to taking the knife out of  GW2's back just to firmly plant it in WoW's. All it does is really enforce the notion that you're nothing more than the other side of the same coin. Bit of advice...next time you dislodge the knife, drop it.

I have nothing against WoW. I played it for years and had a lot of fun doing so.  I'm certainly not someone who goes on that games forum here and bashes it. I was just stating a fact. WoW is still losing subscribers at a dramatic rate. MoP didn't stem the tide and free transfers will probably be a temporary solution. Gaming changes, I simply stated that GW2's design changes from 'standard themeparks' is and will continue to have an impact on the future of the genre thanks to it's success.

Man you guys really are reaching:

"Games like Diablo 3 (pictured), Guild Wars 2, and Minecraft are credited for bolstering the industry, in spite of the decline of subscription MMOs and increased competition from mobile games."

Does NOT equal "GW2 is one of the key contributors".  Stop making crap up.

Lets do some numbers, $50/pop x 3 million copies sold = USD150,000,000

150,000,000 / 20,000,000,000 = .0075, or less than 1 percent of the overall total sales figures for the year.

3/4th of 1% is not "KEY" contributor.

And where does it say "key contributor"?

True, even diablo 3 box sales is really a drop in the ocean.

GW2 fans are their own worst enemy. The article wasn't just about GW2 but you somehow managed to make it just about GW2.

Bravo!! and then you guys wonder why GW2 gets so much flak around here.

Enemy of what? o.O

The guy just posted an article, he never even mentioned being a fan. In fact he could have just been the opposite and been being sarcastic.

Umm nope definitely a fan . And he is not being sarcastic either. I am still looking for the part where it says "GW2 is the key contributor'.

It is one of 3 games mentioned.

GW2 is not released in a 1/3 of the market.

Really no need to twist facts if you like the game and are a fan of it. The game speaks for itself if you like it. If you don't like it then you are not a fan! Simple Simon.

I usually go by what my friends say about games first and then play them to see if I like them. If my friends don't have anything to say I normally look online for awards that the games have received and GW2 has quite a few of them. You can knock on the game all you want, but the facts are it is a great mmorpg. :)

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

Either GW2 or Minecraft outsold MoP on PC in 2012 since Blizzards reported stated Diablo came first in sales for 2012 and MoP came 3rd.. I'd just like to point that out.
