Despite Relatively Low Sales, ClaDun 2 Has Been Profitable


    News like this certainly helps put things in perspective. During the week of March 21st – March 27th, Nippon Ichi released ClaDun 2 for the PSP, and the game saw sales of a mere 5,956 units during the week, and disappeared off the top-20 chart soon after.


    Despite this, however, ClaDun 2 has crossed the break-even point to where it is now profitable, according to developer, System Prisma. For their next game, System Prisma say they’re aiming for higher sales numbers.


    It’s interesting to see how in certain cases, development costs on the PSP can and have been curtailed to the extent that games can be profitable even with relatively low sales like those of ClaDun 2’s.
