Default If Wolfenstein Beats Madden, Itís Free

You wonít believe this. Raven Softwareís Manveer Heir has posted a message on his Twitter stating that if Wolfenstein outsells Madden 10 in the month of August, heíll pay for your copy of Wolfenstein. However, in order to receive your money back, youíll need to keep your copy of the receipt.

ďHereís the deal folks: if Wolfenstein outsells Madden 10 in August I will personally pay for your copy (keep your receipt) Ė SPREAD THE WORD,Ē his Twitter feed read. He didnít go into anymore details about the throwdown with Madden 10.

However, from a bussiness stand point, this doesnít make much sense, seeing that if the game does outsell Madden 10 in the month of August, the company, along with him, will be losing more money then theyíll recieve from the game. Because when you pay the $60 dollars for your game, it goes out to many places. But, Iím not going into detail.

I don't think that's going to happen but if the thought of it to some boosts sales then great

Well I already pre-ordered Wolfenstein and I have no intentions of buying Madden, so I am on the right track.

What if someone buys 10 million copies of Wolfenstein?

I'm never joining that garbage time-waste, and certainly not to follow the proclamations of a self-professed "obsessive drunkard".

He had to be joking... I would hope. Or he just knows it will not do so.

In any event, free or not I look forward to playing the game.

Its fairly simple. Wolfenstein isn't going to outsell Madden 10, anyone with 2 braincells to rub together could have told you that.

It won't outsell, people are going to be angry cause they want a free game. They are gonna be pissed off. While the developers are laughing.
