Dead Space Extraction, Spyborgs truly flopped in September

While there was good news to report in our last NPD post regarding Scribblenauts, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and Muramasa: The Demon Blade, the same can’t be said for two significant Wii releases last month: Dead Space Extraction and Spyborgs.

Extraction, which launched in North America on September 29, sold just north of 9,000 units. Even though the NPD Group calculated data only from August 30 to October 3 (Extraction was in stores on September 29), it seems as though the title isn’t off to a good start at all (compare this data to Muramasa, which is an unestablished property) and reinforces what a Visceral Games employee said earlier today.

In other news, Capcom’s Spyborgs saw an absolutely dreadful debut. Numbers for the game fall somewhere around 500 copies sold in September. Like Extraction, the title wasn’t out for a long period of time, but considering it has already received a $30 price drop, it’d make sense to say that the game really didn’t sell particularly well in its first few weeks on the market.
