August NPD Sales – Not “Too” Impressive

You knew the time would come when Denis and the Silicon Knights crew would have to see the results of their hard work and see just where they stood in hopes of making Too Human a trilogy.  If first impressions mean anything, then it seems the majority of the gaming world wasn’t “too” impressed with the game and decided against purchasing it.  Perhaps the holidays will be good to Too Human?

  1. hmmmm well can’t speak on Too Human cuz i was not impressed either, but Soul Caliber IV is teh shizzle

  2. I’m really enjoying Too Human, I’ve put almost 60 hours into it! I hope it sells more copies.

  3. is it STILL “cool” to shat on TH? I thought that ship had sailed … frankly I’m surprised it made the top 10 in software sales … the game has ALOT of flaws but I actually enjoyed it … why is it commonplace nowadays to bash devs that actually try something different every now and then? geez…

  4. ^ Because that dev (Denis Dyack) is ignorant to what most gamers want, & he is clearly blinded by his own arrogance… The game is not quality… you may have fun with it (I’m sure I can have fun with any game if I try hard enough to like it)

    TOO HUMAN has many flaws.

  5. why don’t you enlighten us as to what gamers want then Mike …

    trust me, Im in the know of what went on with DD and neogaf.. I listened to all of his interviews at 1up etc. etc. it’s just IMO they tried something different and although SK “failed” in alot of pro reviewers minds, there is still alot of c0-op fun as well as potential with the IP …

  6. ^ lol, Yahtzee already did! Hey, lets be dumb & have the analog control the actions instead of the camera!

  7. IRish, MikeW is right. Just go look at

    This guy states everything that’s wrong with TH.
    That being said, amazing how the DS just PWNS everything. I still can’t believe the Wii is selling that many. What the hell are people playing on it, since their software title sales SUCK!!!
    As usual the 360 software sale totally dominates its PS3 counterpart. This is what I’ve been saying for along time, developers will see this is will surely want to develop FIRST on the 360 versus the PS3. Where are the PS3 sales for Soul Calibur?

  8. BostonPimpDaddy – You are only looking at U.S. sales numbers… The Ps3 sells many more games in Japan & Europe

    The 360 doesn’t dominate like you think.

  9. did not like the game at all. but the 360 did pretty good and nintendo is still dominating.

  10. well here in holland the 360 still outsells the ps3, both console and game mike.

  11. Mike, I only care about US.

  12. BostonPimpDaddy – Developers don’t only care about the U.S. – Europe is actually growing far faster & it’s far larger than the U.S.

  13. Mike, until I see PS3 software sales beat 360, the 360 will lead the PS3.

  14. BostonPimpDaddy – What do you expect when the 360 has a 5.5 Million lead on the Ps3 in the U.S.

    Try researching Europe & Japan for once.

  15. To our PS3 friends: who’s your daddy now?!? LOL!!!

  16. the Wii is still everyone’s daddy

  17. Your site is very very cool !! I love it :) Respect !,
