Xbox 360’s Alan Wake: Half a million sales

By Peter Chubb - Jun 30, 2010

Microsoft’s Xbox 360 game Alan Wake has been on the market for six weeks now and has reached half a million in sales – not bad for a game that does not have the same hype as Call of Duty or the Halo series. At the last count more than 26,000 copies were shifted in the week leading up to June 19, 2010.

According to Robert Cram from MSXbox who got the figures from VGChartz, believes that sales will not slow down and will continue for months to come – maybe even picking up as we get closer to the holiday season. Cram points out that there could be a surge in sales in July when new downloadable content is made available.

There are concerns that five hundred thousand copies for a game that was years in development is not that great in the grand scheme of things, but we should wait to see how things turn out in its first year. As we said the DLC will be available from next month and could increase sales – we have to wait and see.

Maybe by Christmas Alan Wake will reach one million in sales, until now just enjoy the game – you will not be disappointed.

    JopaPanda: Red dead Redemption is a sequel and developed by a major studio. You can't compare sale rating with a new IP developed by a 40 men crew. Red Dead who is developed by a studio with over one-hundred employees.

    I bet half of those sales are just from giving the game out when they gave out the new xbox 360 250GB at E3
