So how many Outlets are Going to Headline with DriveClub’s Disappointing Sales in Japan?

driveclub-2

It’s funny, when Bayonetta 2 launched in Japan. Multiple outlets headlined with Bayonetta 2 “flops” in Japan, or Bayonetta 2 is selling miserably in Japan. Yet a big budget, first party title from Sony in Driveclub, sells more than 30,000 units less than Bayonetta 2 in Japan for its opening week….. and pretty much zero websites headline or make articles about it. Most websites are reporting on the New Nintendo 3DS sales, but the lack of a separate article, or even mention that Driveclub sold less than 10,000 units in Japan shows there is an evident bias in mainstream gaming media. I’ll be doing a video on this one later.

Driveclub Reviews Round up – The Forza Killer?

driveclub4

PS4 exclusive/“Forza Killer” Driveclub has its first initial batch of review scores in. And while there are some good scores, it seems like Sony’s PR team might want to be a little more careful on what quotes they use in their promotion trailers. Especially from a site that has a dedicated writer to stir up fanboy bickering and click bait headlines.
