    I'm really coming to despise EA. I will avoid most if not all their games until they make some kind of turn for the better.

    I certainly can't say I saw this one coming 0.0

    Then again, 5 million copies before the game is even considered a success? That's grim.

    I guess its relative to how big the budget was for the game?

    Exactly why I think it's grim. Just how much did they spend? How much financial trouble were they in even before the game (I doubt their financial troubles could have resulted from 1 game)?

    I'm not surprised by
    The development plans for Dead Space 4 have been canned following the underwhelming sales of Dead Space 3.
    I had this suspicion that it wouldn't make good sales.

    Dead Space 3 would need to sell 5 million copies in order to survive.
    How much more are needed to make this quota?
