"Exceeded Expectations"

Jensen frequently noted that Crysis was a strong performer, stating the game went "platinum," which likely means it sold a million units worldwide despite its initially modest performance in the US. This may be due to European territories, where the PC platform has traditionally been stronger.

However he didn't specifically say how much it sold, and they are a German company. I won't argue it though.

Well if it sold 1 million worldwide it would probably need nearly that much in Germany alone.

I'm one of them, here in Aus :)

Haven't played it yet though... I'd rather play it at 1920x1200 smoothly later than 1280x800 now, too many other games that actually run well to play first (nana2)

sold much better than far cry then (3 months for 700k) that would equal probably 15 million profit for EA

Good news, i thought that it was going to be a failure after those early news of poor sales. Mr Cevat Yerli should be happy now. :)

I believe that was four months for Far Cry and 700.000 units

It's probably sales to retailers.

Have you even tried it?

Yes only the first level and fps was bad... I don't call 15-20fps playable. And I hear it gets even worse later on. UT3 runs at 60fps smooth at 1920x, hence I play UT3.

1. I have no doubt that it sold better in Europe than the US
2. I realize now it was EA with the 'platinum' quote, so it probably was the US definition of platinum
3. Still, it was almost certainly sold to retailers numbers, because noone tracks the actual unit sales to customers well enough.

It'll sell at least a million over time, I'm sure.

were you playing it on very high or something? UT3 maxed looks like crysis on med-high.

Crysis is far from a hit...

Need for Speed Pro Street sold over 5.5 million copies in the quarter of '07

Gawd, I can't believe such a crappy racer sold so much, wtf kind of gamers are buying that crap.
