There’s a hefty difference between “shipped” and “sold.” While Max Payne 3 has been doing well critically, that doesn’t speak for whether or not it will do quite so well in stores. Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne received equally much warm critical reception, but didn’t do quite so hot in terms of sales.
Take-Two also revealed some not quite so good, but not quite so bad news for PC gamers looking forward to Max Payne 3. Max Payne 3’s PC release is going to be delayed… for four days. Rather than hitting the originally slated release date of May 29, Max Payne 3 for PC will be launching June 1. If anything, PC gamers should just be glad that Max Payne 3’s PC release isn’t slated for half a year or longer from now, as most Rockstar PC ports are.
