Oh dear. Despite receiving critical acclaim and getting lots of positive mumblings here at AATG, it looks like Ninja Theory's first multiplatform title, Enslaved, has failed to set the charts alight, selling just 151,983 copies worldwide since its launch a few weeks ago.

The numbers add up to something of a kick in the pants for the developer - who had sequels in mind, and were also tipped to pick up the Ninja Gaiden gig as their next project.

Various theories (oh kill us now) on why the game failed to click with gamers have been offered up, everything from people not quite bonding with a game that is more focussed on co-operative interaction than shooting to people just hating the character designs and game world.

It's currently dropping like a stone in price so perhaps there'll be an extra surge of interest before christmas as people pick it up in the bargain bins.
