Default Re: So it seems that UT3 & Crysis have'nt sold well....

Maybe the prevision of sales for Crysis is for a long time periode , 2 or 3 years like Far Cry. This is typical for this style games and the PC - Far Cry 700.000 copys in four monts in 2004 and a total of 3 millons in PC , the source is Ubisoft . And maybe some part of sales is the digital distribution . About Unreal 3 , maybe the sales numbers are more negatives .

About digital distribution in USA

That’s why market researchers are seeing these numbers:

Traditional shrink-wrapped PC games in the U.S. retail market are on the decline, falling to $953 million in 2005, a 36 percent drop from $1.5 billion in 2001, according to the NPD Group.
Internet-related game revenues in North America, including online purchases, subscriptions and advertising, rose to $1 billion in 2005, more than six times the $160 million in 2001, according to DFC Intelligence.

IDC predicts U.S. sales of PC game downloads will almost double this year to about $500 million and grow to $763 million in 2007.
And about Crysis sales ... in Germany , only box sales
