Is anyone else worried that this game might not sell well into the next month?

    Im mean every time I come on theres only 15,000 online at max/ I mean the game is getting great reviews outside of tha stupid Gamespot one. Why doesn't this game have more people online playing it?

    Just because people don't play on line doesn't mean it's not selling. I suck at online play, so I am barely on there. I'm sure I'm not the only one

    Well actually thats probably a good enough amount of people online already. You're only going to see vastly more people online on games like COD, Halo and Madden. Not to mention it's only been out for a little over a week....

    As said above, some people might not be playing online. I was surprised to see how many of my friends didn't use the online play feature on their gaming console when I went back home (the US) a few years back.

    The game just came out, and I think only fans of Transformers bought most if not all copies. Word of mouth is going to be this games greatest asset. Let's face it, Transformer games prior to now sucked:(  Transformers: War For Cybertron has a big @$$ hill to climb, so get the word out: IT. IS. GOOD!

    My 2 cants: All of the above. it's too early to tell. Take me: I haven bought it because I'm waiting on payday. Then I'll concentrate on the campaign for a while to get used to controls and because I like campaigns. Then I'll check out MP. It's just how I roll, and I bet others are like that too.

    seeing as today there were almost 20k people on at one point, i think it's selling pretty good, every different kind of match has it's own amount of people online: 5k were in escalation alone

    PC sales

    im worried about PC sales. my PC is the only current generation system i have and its a pretty kickass system too. the game looks phenomenal running at full graphics on 1920x1200res and the over 160 screen shots i have are amazing! im sure everyone wants if for their 360 or PS3. one thing that sucks about it is that its not a windows live game. with windows live games its just like xbox live only free and u use the same gametag to login. theres so much more than meets the eye to playing games on pc. its just soo much better! i use a 360 controller on my pc and it looks if not better than the 360.

    I don't play online either, only tried it once in Mortal Kombat Armageddon. I prefer playing together with a friend in the same room.

    15,000, for a game like this, is pretty damn good. Honestly, I think it could go either way. It might even sell more copies, since the game came out towards the end of the month. More people might find out about it. And the posts in this thread are correct, some people don't even play online.

    Unfortunately Transformers is still quite a niche thing despite movie ticket sales and unless the game is absoloutely stellar its only going to be moderately successful. You need to bring your expectations in to line with reality here; it's not tied to a movie, has next to no marketing outside of the core press and came out at a pretty bad time of year. I'll be interested to see if it scrapes in to the NPD top ten this month, if it does then it can be considered a success.

    Also they need to fix the goddamn online stuff.

    All I'm noticing is terrible lag where it looks like I'm being shot through walls, around corners etc.

    It's really just lag but everyone likes to scream "OMG HAX!" when in reality it's really not.

    i was suspicious myself.....but the only thing i really hate online is when my team is only Scientists with 1 leader versus a team with 3 soldiers , 1 Sci and 1 Ldr....talk about balance vs the un-balanced.....

    as to the OP thoughts:
    I wouldn't worry too much, I am a bad co. 2 player and split time between the 2 games, (lvl 33 on BC2).

    as for TF, we are talking a niche game here, not nearly as mainstream as a "military fantasy" game.

    I'm glad for the ppl who do play online, feels like they're the diehards.

    I am sad that I'll be off the net for most this weekend though, really wanted to take advantage of the double XP to get me Scientist and Leader around 18 to 20 in level
