First, assuming a price point of $30 for every copy of the original, and the two campaign expansions (averages at best), the sequel to the best-selling computer game of all time need only sell just over three million copies to break even. I think that's a fairly conservative estimate.

Second, video games cost a lot of money to make. GTA4 also had a 100 million budget. Halo 3 and MGS4 cost about 70 million each.

Thirdly, where'd you hear about this?

Because Gamespot never lies.

Starcraft has sold, I think, ten million copies since it was released?

I think Will was just pointing out that Gamespot often reports crazed news and then later releases another report contradicting that. It seems to be their way of increasing the amount of articles they get to release.

Really, I should have used this method, back when I was writing for the Examiner. Instant money maker. People have to keep coming back to see what the latest is, or they may quote you and be laughed at for the fools they are.

Me personally, I have nothing against Gamespot. But I like to explain things, in case you haven't noticed.

I used to like GameSpot, but the whole Kane & Lynch drama kinda put me off them.

There aren't any concrete facts, but I did read Eidos did complain about the low score. Seems too coincidental that Gerstmann was fired soon after the review. My theory is that GameSpot were looking to get rid of him, and that was the last thing that pushed it. Some people know that I came from GameSpot before HG, and at the time I was pretty pissed that GameSpot maintained pretty much silence over the whole affair, waiting for the whole thing to blow over. I left the site eventually, because I didn't trust them anymore (or any of the big sites for that matter, like IGN). Bear in mind that many of the staff later quitted in protest over Gerstmann's sacking.
