Press releases are usually tedious affairs filled with exaggeration but the recently issued presser for Fuel Overdose – an anime-inspired car combat title released on PSN late last year – caught our eye.
â€œFuel Overdose competes with GTA V for a new sales recordâ€ reads the incredibly tongue-in-cheek title, where it’s then proclaimed by Skander Djerbi – founder of Fuse Overdose developer I-Friqiya – that they believe with just 600 copies sold since launch it could be a contender for the worst selling console game of all time.
Such modesty is rarely heard of.
There is a point to the press release though, other than to remind that the game is still available on PSN at an incredibly reduced rate for the next two days.
To wit: they hope that it’ll â€œencourage other publishers and developers to publish their sales figures to challenge Fuel Overdose’s performance and unveil a part of the truth regarding the current situation of the digital download marketsâ€.
We guess they aren’t the only developer to be faced with poor sales figures lately.
