Does the UK represent the largest market for SHIII?

Probably not. So what is the reasoning behind having this contest there?

DOH!

It is a cool contest though. Pretty innovative.

If I win, you guys are gonna have quite a bit of airfare on your hands. SHIII development would come to a stand still and you guys would have to get second jobs as strippers. EW-la-la

Hey crazy!
Also if they are going to sell so many in America then why promote it?

Why should UK ubisoft promote in America?

02-27-2005, 03:28 PM
Hmmm, I wonder if there is any way to keep track of which country buys the most? I'm a yank and I would be willing to bet that Europe will get the most sales. Kinda hard for an American to play as a German. But for me I'm not that serious about it. I'm down right looking forward to it! Woho! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif Hehehehe!

It would be quite interesting to see the sales figures grouped by country (after a few months).
Not that Ubi would publish such figures.

Remember that 'Where are you from?' thread?

We could see if the sales mirror the forumites nationality count.

As far as I remember, Spain and USA were neck&neck for being the largest count.
