EEDAR: Limited Chinatown Wars sales prove "risk" for M-rated DS titles

EEDAR's Jesse Divnich said today an approximate 200,000 sales for GTA: Chinatown Wars in the US last month proves M-rated games are a "risky" business on DS.

"It appears the industry may have been over-zealous with initial expectations on how GTA: Chinatown Wars would perform based upon the news it had received one of the highest quality scores for a Nintendo DS title," says Divnich.

Quality scores alone don't seem to be a major driver of sales on the DS, said the analyst.

"The results from Chinatown are an important benchmark for the industry, as it will be the best-performing mature rated title on the Nintendo DS to date coupled with one of the strongest mature-rated game brands," he added.
