View Full Version : IL2 sales figures

11-04-2004, 03:53 AM
In the history section it says:

"In total, the IL-2 line of sims have sold over 650,000 units in Russia, and over 600,000 additional units in the rest of the world."

Quite amazing that the Russian market is actually bigger than the rest of the world for this sim!

Are these decent sales figures compared to other games? Anybody knows the similar figures for the CFS series?

I don't know figures but I do know compared to other games these numbers are small. Note that the numbers are for the total line of sims, most FPS's (or at least the popular ones) would sell much more than this with just one game rather than the 4 of the IL2 line.

Not surprising, since it`s a Russian-made flight sim! Expect the same if it were an American- made flight sim or British. Or even Venezualan!

It`s refreshing to see the Russians do something that the rest of the Flight-sim gaming world must envy! Even if they won`t admit it <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">*cough* microsoft *cough*</span>

I just wish they had put copy protection on the games, especialy AEP and PF. I think those figures would look a lot more then.

I know several people in the States who say, "I'm not about to play a game developed my a bunch of Commies"! Well, I hate to break the news to them, but this game is about as Capatalist as it gets, so they really need a chill pill and a copy of the best game... and it ain't by... speaking of Socialist plots!...

wow, LuckyBoy1, I guess things are still pretty deep rooted in some parts of the States, and after all this time too. No wonder we sometimes get strange posts from people calling Oleg a communist, etc, etc....

hmmm Oleg said that 60% of the players have ilegal copies.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif so the number of ppl playing the game (legal or not) is somewhere around 3.125.000 wich i think it is quite an nice number for a flight sim, considering most ppl everywhere think about flight sims like they are "childish" or who knows what stupidity http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif (aldough they enjoy tapping WASD and slaying brainless monsters just "to finish the game" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif
