Borderlands 2 shipped 6M copies in 2012

Take 2 has announced that Borderlands 2 shipped more than 6 million units in 2012 across 3 platforms, which sounds better than the 4M sales it actually sold that year. The sequel has yet to reach the sales of the original game, which moved roughly 5.5M units in its lifetime.


The publusher stated that its strategy game XCOM: Enemy Unknown had "commercial success" without offering numbers. It becomes apparent when VGChartz reports that the game only sold 910K units across three platforms to date. The publisher also stated that the XCOM shooter would be arrving in 2014.

What Take 2 probably cares about most, however, was that its third quarter net revenue was up by more than three quarters year-over-year to $415M, but its net losses grew to $71M.

Still not in the mood for this game. Looks awesome, and like a load of fun, but nah, not just yet.

Every time it goes on sale I think, "Hmm. Maybe I could get Borderlands 1 super cheap?"

Same case with me. Skipped both 1 and 2 and it seems to be a really good game. Cartoney feel of it is not working for me. Yet...

Can't be bothered as the novelty of the first has worn off and the price is ridiculous here just as with all Take 2 games. Simply put, they are quite unaffordable until massively reduced in price, and by then all the hoohah has passed onto the "next big thing".

Yeah the price is quite high at this stage. I'll wait for a major special... that is if I am in the mood for the game by then.

Never played the first game, but damn, borderlands 2 is really good. It actually is a game which gets better the more you play it, instead of getting more repetitive.
