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?

Did this never get an answer ?......I mean there must be some proof . Just saying

Though out of the 30 people i know that got it (including me) 24 out ouf 30 of those people regret there purchase, 12 out of those 24 refunded the game and all 30 out of those 30 including me quit the game before the end of 2012.

The more you post the better your story gets ,,,,in 2015 you'll be able to change these numbers  to 960 out of a 1000 and all quit within 2 hours

Minecraft costs 19.95 $ and has been around for some time

MoP costs 40.00$ (when it came out) and WoW already has a big subscriber base so the sales are dissapointing if you think about it

Diablo 3 costs 59.99$ the same money as GW2.

Now saying that Diablo 3 outsold GW2 it might be true but it doesnt prove anything. If you look at the top selling PC games of all time the only MMOs that can get on that list are WoW and Guild Wars 1 (yeah you heard that right...GW1 is one of the top selling PC games of all time...)

Diablo 3 sold 12 million and its third on that list, thats kinda pathetic for such a bad game and you can see the power of fame and anticipation right there...

So regarding revenue and contribution for PC software sales i think GW2 isnt that far away for the others...

Lmao.

Today on CNN: Guild Wars 2 players quit in numbers larger than the game sold!  Full story at 11!

Seriously though, of the 50 people I know and am friends with (inculding me), 46 of them still play and love GW2.  You can't even question my post because this is Internets, Land of Truth.

EDIT: This just in!  GW2 STILL a success.  Some people STILL bitter about it.

Counting quoted text, there are two lies about how bad the game's doing on just this page.  I suggest pointing your guns elsewhere, you're not making a dent here.

It wasn't one of the most hyped games. It  may have been the most hyped on this site, but in general, it wasn't pushed on anywhere else in the media. No telivision ads, nothing on radio. Comparatively right now, Defiance has television ads, MoP had it's campaign as well. No, it was only hyped by a few sites on the internet, it's fans from GW1 followed and word of mouth made it what it is today, a very  fun mmorpg.

As far as your "friends" and you go, if what you say is true, it doesn't matter, the game has literally thousands playing and enjoying it. The devs turn out new content to do, and it's all for $60. 

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

lol that reminded my of my best friend who preordered it for 70€ and played 1 BWE and at launch played his guardian til lvl 21 and quit just to instantly sub to MoP . he gave me his account cause he isnt "gonna touch this ever again (his words) but i didnt make it past lvl 17 thief.  so i absolutely believe you :)

 

what i dont like is ppl mixing up game being fail bc it sucked and bc it didnt sell enough.

 

gw2 was a success. it sold enough.(nowhere near enough if u consider the crazy hype ppl made around it) but d3 sold triple the amount but ppl call it fail bc they werent happy with the game.

I love how haters are starting to lose their grounding when bashing on GW2, since the only arguments they can come up with are either "x amount of Y people I know bought and quit the game" or "GW2 sold only X copies over 6 months when the game Y sold Z in only T weeks".

 

I'm overly enjoyed. Victory.

All right? *rolles eyes*

*Haters* are more concerned about how OP twisted the article to suit his own needs rather than how many copies GW2 sold. No one can deny that GW2 sold well but that is not what this is about.

And since OP never bothered to participate in the flaming that he encouraged with his topic i would say mission accomplished.

And once again congrats for winning on the internet!

maybe the op titled the thread from what he saw elsewhere -- who knows ?


http://www.vg247.com/2013/03/28/pc-software-sales-hit-20-billion-in-2012-new-report-finds/

the report found that the $20 billion figure shows an 8% increase in sales from 2011, and Diablo 3, Minecraft, and Guild Wars 2 were key contributors.

Well, the article the OP linked to is a summary of a industry report, which unfortunately isn't public, so we can't check if it really mentions GW2 as one of the key contributors, but since several other gaming sites have posted articles on the same report, and also mentioned the same 3 games, I don't see much reason to doubt it.

you know this thread is proveing one thing GW2 is the new WoW.

i dont mean numbers, or top MMO, or anything like that.

it is being hated on and defended with absolutly no logic or proof behind any of the statements, just like WoW has always been.

will it ever out do WoW, will it still be around in a few years considering the mother company behind it.

well no one knows and no one will till a few years from now at which point if people still talk about it it will be just like how people talk about WoW silly nonsence both ways.

 

P.S. my money is on it only being around barely and WoW will still be at pretty much the same spot it always has had for about the last 10 years. but eh thats my opion i dont play ether of those games anymore.

F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used to
Proper Grammer & spelling are extra, corrections will be LOL at.

gw2 being barely/under 1% of all pc game sales does not make u key contributor. same for d3 and mop.

ur right. we cant chek. u should not believe such info even if its on 50 different sites if it isnt credible.

Key contributors to the 8% increase over last year.

So now that can be put to rest.

All games are bashed like that here, and on most badly moderated forums too. It's not specific to WoW or GW2, even though their success makes them a favorite target.

Some people just seem to only enjoy feeding on hatred, and only have fun when they pee in other people's cheerios. Specially when safely hidden behind a computer screen, and safe of any kind of direct retaliation, so they can behave like that and try to ruin other people's fun without any risk of consequences.

It's the forum game. Some are here to talk about the game they enjoy, and others are here just to disrupt that enjoyment instead of minding their own business and go play games they actually enjoy. And some are just zealots (just like real life zealots we see in the news everyday) who think that because they don't enjoy something, nobody should, and that there's only one way to have fun in a video game, so they come back over and over again to bore us with their "truth".

Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2

Got a refund: Archeage. First refund since I started MMOs.

Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO and GW2.

I'm still loving GW2. Largely because Anet somehow manages to push out more content on a monthly basis than that one big MMOG does in six months, sometimes upwards of a year. The April Fools content for example is utterly awesome, best 'april fools'.. anything I've ever seen in an MMOG and it isn't even the April content patch. That's coming later in the month!
