House of the Dead: Overkill's sale rank is #216 and its selling price is $14.79.
The Conduit's sale rank is #568 and its selling price is $13.94($25.99 directly from!)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex's sale rank is #201 and its selling price is $46.99.
Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles's sale rank is #849 and its selling price is $46.99. Review Score Averages:
The only game that saw a change in its review score average, from last week, was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex.
It had one review added to its total number and that review helped increase the game's overall average.
Last week Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex was sitting at a 78.53% average with 30 reviews, this week its review score average increased to 78.94% with 31 reviews.
Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles average is 74.54% based on 40 reviews.
House of the Dead: Overkill's average is 80.78% based on 54 reviews.
The Conduit's average is 72.06% based on 63 reviews.

As I said two weeks ago, I think that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex will pass The Conduit's "Total Hours" reported played, on Monday, March 15, 2010, when the data is updated.
The Conduit should be reporting around 1,242,000 "Total Hours".
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex should be reporting around 1,280,000 "Total Hours".

If you're interested in any of these games, you can see the best used and new price of the games on on the pictures below:

Why do you think Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles has the lowest sales rank on out of these four games, but it is the newest released game of them all?  Do you think it's because of Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicle's price?


  1. Price is only 1 factor. It cannot compete with either The Conduit or Modern Warfare Reflex. Both are legit FPS games with a full single player modes and online modes. You have to compare it to HOD: Overkill and it has two things going against it here, 1) price, why would you spend $30 more dollars and 2) it doesn't have the campy personallity that Overkill does.

  2. It may be because people find those on rail type games boring. Four or five hours later with a buddy playing and you beat the game. I'd rather just rent it for the $6 or $7 instead of spending the $30 to $50 for it.

  3. @Kyle in DE:
    Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles is a full game though. It's 20-30 hours in length, and even has online leaderboards for posting up scores.

    @Nicodemus at Nite:
    I mentioned it above, but Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles is actually 20-30 hours in length.

    I'm thinking maybe a lot of people are buying it's prequel, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles for $30, instead of this this one.

    Again, I think this is bad marketing, because before I read any reviews, I thought the game was a short experience like most on-rail games, and I didn't know it had online leaderboards.

    Thanks to the both of you for the comments!
