Crackdown only managed to break even, says Dave Jones

Crackdown may have been a huge hit with gamers, but apparently the game only broke even money-wise for the developers and Microsoft.

"With Crackdown we sold about 1.5 million copies, but even at that we pretty much only managed to break even," Dave Jones told Gamasutra. "It was due to the amount of factors that were out of our control as the developer, influences such as GameStop's amazing used-game sales.

"We know 1.5 million new copies were sold, but it's likely there were 2.5 - 3 million sold when you include used."

Wow. Sorry 'bout that.
