    Bioshock 2: 3 MILLION Copies sold!

    http://www.marketwatch.com/story/tak...dist=afterbell

    2k has sold 3 million copies of Bioshock 2 to retailers worldwide. That is insanity for the first month. 2k stocks are up, climbing 5%, with better than expected earnings. Those are some great numbers. Bioshock 3 seems to be a sure thing at this point!

    Cue the celebration!

    -Edit Here is another link on the subject that also mentions sales of the first Bioshock are now over FOUR MILLION as well. Woo hoo!

    Nothing is actually announced beyond plans for a 3rd game, as per a conference call to investors from Strauss (I think it his name), the chairman at 2k.

    Well, actually they've shipped that many copies, which doesn't equal sold. It's still a noteworthy event though.

    They shipped that many but they more than likely won't sell that many. Word of mouth is an impressive thing. It can either save or kill a game. I've heard a lot of negatives about BS2 even before playing it.

    Yeah, maybe. But an aggregate score on Meta Critic in the high 80's is more than enough word of mouth for most. It's already sold in the mid two million range, as per VGchartz, which don't include PC or STEAM sales (which are going to be low anyway, justified with all the issues).

    I think it'll hit 3 million at some point. But I really couldn't care less. I dig the game, they've announced to investors plans to make a 3rd game and these sales won't make them change their mind. They're making money, they'll continue to develop as long as there's money there - for good or ill.

    As disappointed as I am with the game, I'm glad to hear this.
