Alan Wake which had been in development for over 5 years is being overlooked by many gamers all around. Despite the usual fail of games in long development, Alan Wake is the reason to buy An Xbox 360 if you haven’t done so already. It is too bad that most existing 360 gamers, don’t know how good Alan Wake really is..
Alan Wake sold 267,000 in its first two weeks of release according to VGchartz, and while that is an OK number, it is disappointing to see a unique and exclusive Xbox 360 game go unappreciated. Let’s take a look at games such as Gears of War, Halo, Mass Effect, and Modern warfare (360) all selling in the millions at first week of release.
Why is it that Alan Wake is getting the back seat? Red Dead Redemption is clearly a reason why some may have skipped Alan Wake, and let’s be honest the Red Dead Redemption marketing was a bit too powerful to compete against the non-existing marketing of Alan Wake. But, is that what it was—lack of marketing? Hard to believe this is the case, Alan Wake is simply not targeted for Xbox 360 gamers.
Halo, Gears of War, and Call of Duty type of games are what 360 gamers want. Sometimes it’s good to step outside of the box and explore new games. It’s hard to believe that 360 gamers are not jumping on a unique exclusive game offered for their console. Alan Wake is simply amazing, and an experience that even PS3 exclusive gamers would be jealous of. Games like Alan Wake are one of a kind and hopefully the Xbox 360 crowd “Wakes Up”.
