Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories will flop

Under 500,000 sales in the US. PSP sales will barely increase because of it.

Damn 500k Preorders already? Looks like GTA:LCS will be a killer APP. Amazing since its Not Even Released Yet.

This game supposes to do a major boost to the PSP user base, Sony expects PSP sales go skyrocket after the game is out.

There's probably like 8 pre orders. I am forecasting how much it will sell this entire year. It just MIGHT exceed 500,000 after a loooong time or when it's a "greatest hit", or more commonly known as a "Bargain pin" game.

With more and more game selling poorly and developers taking the EA approach with selling on the quantity of titles instead of quality of games that enable quantity of sales, 500k is actually pretty good now.

I have not seen anything on this game. If it is supposed to be a killer app. they need to increase their advertising for it.

it will sell well because of the american commercial regime.

people dont know what they want anymore like preps- they are told what they want and then they get it and tell their friends i have it- and they got to get it becuase without it they wont have no identity, and they will be seen as odd becuase its standard to have it.

preps need gta to survive.

Rockstar has always held off on hyping the GTA games until the last possible minute. The path they've taken with LCS hasn't been any different thus far. GTA3 sold on word of mouth alone before the media caught on. If the series track record is any indication they really don't need that much of a marketing push. There are print ads already in circulation and the TV ads will probably start heavy rotation once the game is actually out.

Anyway, Nindalf is only setting himself up for ownage by saying GTA: LCS will flop. If there's one thing I've learnt this generation, it's to never underestimate GTA.

damn straight.

TBH though dont think LCS will sell **** loads,

i was just chatting with my sister who i never chat to in months and when she came back from america she was shocked at the hive mind mentality some areas have,

she was commenting on how you can be made in to a total outcast just for being different, and that from a young age your made to be normal as can be, normal in america is a very scary thing from what i'm hearing.

this is prep areas she was talking about, and from what ive heard from alot of people its like that alot in most places, it made her comment on how free we are in the UK, were not battered into an orderly social regeme where everyone should act or be a certain way,

its like the theme your with us, or against us.

she also said of how nice people were- so nice in fact it didnt feel natural at all.


i like my individual ways that are very far removed from everyone else but that is still respected enough not to cause people to penalise me for being different- everyone in the uk is very individual, accept for some weird suburban middle class townies. which is actually growing at an alarming rate.
