The Wall-E movie has done quite well at the box office among critics and the public. But the accompanying videogame, sold on virtually every platform, ever, and published by THQ is not faring quite so well. It's been out for nearly a month, yet has only garnered sales of 114,000.
This is on-pace with another Pixar title, Ratatouille, which had sluggish sales at the same time a year ago. Analyst Michael Pachter said the holidays will give a much needed boost and all will be well, but if we're using Ratatouille as an indicator, that may not be the case as sales did not trend up for the rat-based game as they had expected last year.
Wall-E is a fast-paced action/adventure game developed by Heavy Iron Studios and published by THQ for the PS2, PS3, Mac, PC, Xbox 360, Wii, DS, PSP, and wireless platforms.
