I wanted Rayman Legends to sell well. Most of us did, hopefully. It's an already terrific game that looks even better when put up against some of the other stuff Ubisoft releases. During an earnings call, Ubisoft CFO Alain Martinez said "We saw some slowdown on the released games; we believe we were below what we were expecting in our initial target."

And because we can't have nice things, yes, that group includes Legends. It, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and "others" didn't meet the company's sales targets.

The bad news of course continued with word that both Watch Dogs and The Crew had been delayed, as we now know. According to Martinez, Ubisoft is expecting some 2.5 million sales for the open-world racing game which I'd be nervous about hitting, if I were them. "We'll see where we go and we believe that we have a nice potential for the future," he commented.

Reaper of sales: Diablo III expansion has sold over 2.7 million

In its first week of availability, the first Diablo III expansion, Reaper of Souls, has reaped 2.7 million sales. Uhm. I mostly just wanted to write "Reaper of sales." I don't have anything else to say. Good job to Blizzard for responding to fan feedback with a $40 expansion that everyone went out and paid for, apparently. Path of Exile is free if you like click click click click games.more
