That's not how it works.

It's mostly about getting Shadow's name out there rather than letting it go under the radar. So far, there's been a lot of folks that didn't know a new game was coming in September. Plus, some folks on a budget would rather buy one game and then purchase the other one down the line later.

Tbh I think Spiderman will affect sales in some way, but to me it doesn't look like it will be a great game. Don't know why, but I feel like it lacks something.

On the other hand RDR2 hasn't been promoted like this but that 6 minutes trailer was enough to convince me :D

SP wowed me at first even though i never been a superhero fan! The exact opposite of what i wanted from Shadow at E3! Thank you EM :mad:
But the more i see this game the more i think it's just a boring open world with movie quality high action scenes! Like Uncharted 2013. :D

It's gonna affect the ps4 sales but not much imo.
Or we still have Xbox and PC!

I absolutely don't get why SpiderMan is getting so much buzz. Seriously, I really can't understand the appeal of the game, but that's just me. Sure I get that from the vids it looks like a really well made game graphically wise, but I don't understand the appeal of the type of game that it is, which at first sight it looks like a generic open-world game, and I have the feeling it gets boring after a while, if it only revolves about the same stuff around the city.
It might affect Shadow's sales, but I don't think it will be as bad as Fallout. Shadow has been getting a lot of positive traction lately. I just hope they kick in the ads and stuff alike soon though

Spiderman is getting buzz because marvel is pushing out big bucks to promote the game, also it's been a huge year for the marvel franchise as a whole and Spiderman is playing off of that. The buzz will quickly fade though.

Shadow is facing big competition in S-M. There's no denying this game will be huge.

You failed to understand that Spider-Man is PS4 exclusive so it will only affect PS4 sales of Shadow. Shadow can probably get half a million on PS4 alone since Spiderman will take up majority of the PS4 fanbase. Let's not forget that some people will get both games. And we haven't even factored in Xbox and pc sales. Shadow will be fine

In addition to all the superhero hype, I think people are excited for a franchise similar to the Arkham games. Sales-wise, we definitely won't have a repeat of Fallout. I'm confident Shadow can do just as well, even if it does bite into the PS4 sales a bit.

It's just weird, but maybe I'm missing something, IDK. I'm curious to known the general reception once Spider is released

Yea, regardless, Shadow has been performing fairly well (apparently) in pre-sales, so that's already a plus. I'm still confident Shadow will do well, regardless of the competition

Wow, that's some good promo there. SE's version of this for Shadow would be a private train... :cen:

And RotTR is #4 on Steam ahead of GTA5 and PUBG. Pretty good IMHO.
They should use those money to remake animations for the next gen :vlol:
