    It did have a lot of advertising so it probably did quite well WW, more than LBPK, PSASBR and SC2 since they got next to no advertising.

    Yep, like you for example. Next time just call me out. No need to $#@! around my back.

    Also, there are some pretty good games for kids out there that incorporate both decent graphics and gameplay. Wonderbook fails in the latter department. Hell, even the official E3 presentation didn't quite work as planned.

    Let me quote the Gametrailers review:
    You're left with a book that can't be read, a game that isn't really played, and a sense of disappointment that can't be waved away by all the wands in Ollivander's shop.
    EDIT: Note that this is my opinion. Not everyone has to agree with it.

    Yes but there is difference between saying a game looks bad and i don't like it compared to saying the game has fail written all over it, which is obviously BS considering how well it is doing in these countries.

    For a hardcore gamer who has dark souls 2 in his signature i understand why you don't like it.

    http://www.metacritic.com/game/plays...book-of-spells

    On average, it is doing pretty good in terms of reviews for a " game that has fail written all over it"

    to you it might fail, but have you thought that maybe, just maybe, the game was not targeted for you? No, it is not impossible for such things to happen!

    I was specifically referring to the gameplay aspect, which seems to not hold a candle to other casual titles out there (hence the quote from the gametrailers review).

    And let's be honest here: If it wasn't a Sony exclusive nobody would even bother replying to my post.

    Hahahaha NOPE.
    I just dislike it when people who are not in any way or form the target audience say comments like this game fails.

    This is why not i don't really give a damn about Kinect or PS move, as long as there are some games for me to play, i am fine.

    Both are not worth it IMO, but that does not mean they fail.

    In reality this will get more ps3's out there and more money comes into sony so they can make they type of games you as a gamer likes to play.

    You still don't get it, do you?

    I love simple arcade titles (a la Time Crisis with PS Move) just as much as the next guy. Having added Dark Souls 2 to my signature does not mean that I cannot enjoy casual titles or that I'm out of the target audience.

    However, I can differentiate between rewarding gameplay and a lack thereof. That is my whole point that you don't seem to grasp.

    And trust me, even kids (or whoever you consider to be the target audience of Wonderbook) can do that.

    Looks like Sony is about to tap into the casual market with Wonderbook alone.

    Best core games, soon to be best casual games. I think the PS4 is slated for a great generation.

    Often these figures are stating units despatch to the retailers not units sold. Would be nice if this really is units sold

    Its really not bad, it fits in well with the HP universe. It could have been a little more gamey but its alright for a book.

    Really? I mean come on
    By that definition I can go into any exclusive game thread and say "it has complete fail written over it" and nobody should say anything because if they do its just because its exclusive to their system
    And I thought you was one of the older members here, coming here with that $#@! :
    But fair enough if you've played the game and think its $#@! or just think it looks $#@! you are fully entitled to your opinion but even then ya gonna be questioned on it and it has $#@! all to do with exclusiveness
    What does exclusiveness to PS3 mean anyway? other then it can't be as good as PS3 gamers & critics say it is? That the general thing round here, No?
    Me personally its not my cuppa tea, but I guess those Harry Potter fans will love it and its had good reviews

    I guarantee if I went into a Gears or Uncharted thread and said similar words I'd be infracted.

    For the record I have no interest in Wonderbook either but at the end of the day its aimed at 3-10 year olds. And yeah there are better "casual" games, at 3 years old I was playing Sonic the Hedgehog which is much better than half the games released this gen anyway.
