It would appear that very few people were excited to get their hands on Binary Domain. Joystiq is telling us that, after launching on February 28, Sega’s third-person shooter only managed to sell 20,000 copies in March in the US. As you can guess, that’s not very good, especially when compared to sales of a certain other third-person sci-fi shooter released last month.
While nobody really expected Binary Domain to light up the sales charts, numbers like these are still unfortunate to see. If nothing else, the game’s commercial failures have probably given some insight as to why publisher Sega announced they were cancelling upcoming projects and laying off various staff last month.
