An expert in these sort of things (read analyst), has said that low sales has turned Darksiders: Wrath of War into something of a disappointment for THQ.
Signal Hill analyst Todd Greenwald said:
Darksiders didn’t perform up to THQ’s expectations, likely selling less than 1 million units despite heavy marketing dollars, 2-3 years of development costs, and was also subject to discounting just 2 weeks after its release.
What really intrigued me was “discounting just 2 weeks after its release”…Hello? Distros, why is ours still full price?
Oh, sorry for the bad return THQ. Next time release the game another time of the year – not between Bayonetta and Mass Effect hitting the shelf.
