Tomb Raider is no BSI. Comparing Tomb Raider to Dead Space 3 would be more accurate. Expect 7M first year copies of BSI to be sold.
Ryan, i love how ur #$%$ slams anyone talking about big Bioshock Infinite sales yet pumps the "buyout" almost daily. Almost daily you are talking about da big buyout from atvi, ea, #$%$, hell, you dont even know where to throw the dart anymore. I guess its back to ea this week. You would be right at home on any penny stock board. They talk buyouts hourly.
Upcoming Xcom release for mac should add a few extra $M to bottom line as well. Probably would not be the case if Xcom had not gotten such high media marks and racked up some goty awards. There are few bigger budget games that are ported for mac so when one actually is the mac fanboys go nuts. Hell, those guys are still pumping Assassins Creed 2 like the sh** just came out. I think Xcom will be slow yet comsistemt money maker for ttwo for a while.
Afrezzauser, if the FDA assembles a panel prior to the pdufa will you consider giving testimony? I would be willing to pay for the transportation, hotel (5 star), meal and any other costs incurred if you do. After trading biotechs and listening to panels for years I have found that the patient testimony at the end of each panel can be very persuasive and important...
"Con game". Since i went long the stock is up over 20%. Is that because of me? Not at all, but i would love to know exactly what the "con" you are referring to is and exactly where the point of profit is supposed to be in this "con".
Actually disregard all of that i dont want u to reply to anything ive written above. Youre father should have pulled out and sprayed u on the $25 a night motel room floor when he had the chance.
A lot of nonsense on this board threatening shorts and looking upon them negatively. Most of the shorted shares are actually held by bullish investors and firms as part of option spread hedges. Many firms dont play biotechs for 100-300% gains, they play for 5-15% gains which on a $10M+ principal can be big. No need to bash the short positions as they are precisely what will help drive the pps on volume. Relax, as stated before several times-
These are the price levels to observe for top line, pre-pdufa and approval respectively. It will be a slow melt up all year long with a couple insignificant dips here and there
Thanks Pumpkin, its mighty refreshing to hear somebody on this board not bash me for any and every post i author. BSI should do well more than 6M first year.
Click on the youtube statistics icon on the right hand bottom of any video. Shows view graph, country views and age statistics. The most recent ones I data mined were were Borderlands 2 and Dead Space 3. I figured B2 would sell 5M (turned out to be an underestation) and DS3 would be a flop (so far).
Youtube bioshock infinite views turned the corner about a week ago. Instead of a steady consistent stream of views they have spiked and are up 30,000 more views a day (using the top 3 trailer/gameplay videos) and increasing. Thats a massive increase, considerably better trending than Borderlands 2, Dead Space 3 and nearing God of War Ascension (hard to beat because it had a super bowl commercial) territory. I keep a close eye on the youtube stats because I have found them to be very very accurate as an initial sales portent.
EA is an absolute disaster in the making. I would short it. I would be long ttwo, atvi and unisoft though.
EA is disastrously run and would have caused irrepairable damage to the gaming had they gotten hold of ttwo a few years back.
Dilution is as relevant as a horse's tail for pdufa bound biotechs. What matters are 2015 options. All I can say is what i have been saying for months-
These are the price points for top line, pre-pdufa and post-pdufa. U will not see $2 until next year if there is a sound FDA rejection.
Fool. Bioshock Infinite will more than make up for the needed rev in ur lazy and shoddy pseudo-math. IOS gta games will be reflected fully in this Q along with eastern NBA2k13 sales.
Borderlands 2 is no Bioshock Infinite numb nu+s. I own B2 and have played the BSI demo. Like comparing a .22 LR to a .50 BMG.
"Preorders are not escalating" wow, didnt know you had access to all the info that not even analysts and insiders have. Let me guess, vgchartz is ur source? Yes, i bet it is. Do i need to say more? The pre-sale popularity and push on steam et al is huge right now and youtube view statistics graphs have turned upward tremendously in the last week alone. Everyone i have talked to is stoked about this game. Should sell 7M
Couldnt be better. Will have people talking about the game in cerebral conversations. More free promotion. 7M copies first year. Anyone who thinks otherwise is clueless.
