New 50 Cent game ten times less popular

Original racked up much higher sales.

It may have got some respectable review scores (including 7/10 from Eurogamer), but 50 Cent's latest game hasn't proved as popular as its predecessor.

As reported by Kotaku, 56,000 copies of 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand were shifted in the US during the first two months on sale.

But sales of 50 Cent: Bulletproof hit 681,000 during the same period. That's despite the fact it only managed an average Metacritic score of 47, compared to 71 for Blood on the Sand. More than a million copies of Bulletproof have been sold to date.

Rumours that THQ hopes to reinvigorate the series by producing 50 Cent: Carnival Sports Party exclusively for Wii are completely made up.
