Thumbs up Bad Company 2 sells 5 million; PC partly responsible for the success

http://www.gamespot.com/news/6262117...es%3Btitle%3B5

Quote:
Part of Bad Company 2's success is due to the fact that DICE supports dedicated servers for the PC edition of the game. EA played up the difference between the game and Modern Warfare 2, which abolished dedicated servers in favor of IWnet, widely believed to be a precursor to a subscription-based service for the game.

Partly? The PC has more users than 360 and PS3 combined, you can hardly call that partly.

I would still love to buy this game. I won't until they add Lan support. Until that time, i'm not interested.

But I bet you that the consoles version outsold the PC version... users does not equal sales. It's a known fact that PC Gamers are more into online gaming then console gamers.

Heck I play online on the PC all the time, Only game I have ever played online on the PS3 is MAG and Warhawk...

The sad part is even 5 million sales looks like it won't make EA profitable this year. Though maybe it will help.
