Vanquish sales are 'encouraging' - Sega

Mike Hayes remains cautious though

Vanquish review scores were mixed to say the least and the game arrived at number 12 in the UK chart on release.

Underwhelming maybe considering the pre-release hype, but SEGA West boss Mike Hayes isn't disappointed in how Shinji Mikami's speedy shooter has done in terms of sales.

"It's been in the marketplace for two days, we've seen the day one numbers and we're reasonably encouraged, but I think we need to see the rest of week one and probably week two just to see how it's going to play out," he told IGN.


"The challenge is that it's a new franchise and that it's releasing head-to-head with a lot of established franchises in the busiest time of the year."
