Homefront sells 1+ million

Written by David Stellmack

Has shipped over 2.4 million so far
THQ has confirmed that Homefront has passed the 1+ million sold and they have shipped 2.4 million units to retailers globally. While the reviews were not as good as THQ and developer Kaos studios might have hoped and the launch was a bit rocky with some issues, the title managed to finish as the 6th most played game on Xbox Live last week.

Homefront did well in its European launch with the title climbing its way to the top of the charts in Europe. The game sold a very respectable 375,000 copies on the first day of release in North America and the pre-order to sale conversion rate was very good.

While developer Kaos Studios is planning for a patch to address some additional issues, the first in a steady stream of Downloadable Content is about to be released. The content will appear first on the Xbox 360 platform, followed by the PlayStation 3 and PC at a later date. THQ is pleased with the sales of Homefront and it looks certain that the title will reach its sales goals as predicted by several industry analysts.

Quoting 123s:
Yay, CoD clones for the win...

It is a CoD clone, but not even a good one.
Graphics are ok on the surface, but then you notice the terrible animations, and that characters don't really interact with their environments. Everything is static, nothing is dynamic. Physics are non-existant. Try tossing a grenade, wtf? Try opening a door yourself, nope, have to wait for your teammates.

If this is the direction FPS games are going, and I think some are, looking at Medal of Honor, where you were just a mindless spectator too, then I am not happy about that. I'd rather have CoD or Battlefield, where you're afforded some freedom. Especially Battlefield, can't wait for BF3.

"Try opening a door yourself, nope, have to wait for your teammates."
Thats pretty much CoDlike.

You kill everything that moves > go to the point on the map > watch the cut scene > repeat for 5h > done
