Locked: Wii Fit in Japan - Hit or Miss?

Forums - Sales Discussion - Wii Fit in Japan - Hit or Miss?

So the Famitsu experts reckon that Wii Fit will sell between 1.5 and 2.5 million copies in Japan.

These are the same guys that said Mario Galaxy will sell between 1 and 2 million, and we all know that ain't happening...

So yeah, simple - Hit or Miss?

For various reasons, there is no way this is going to be the beast that Nintendo want it to be. 

I think it is going to sell quite well, but more than 1 million?  I don't think so. 

To be honest, I think it is going to struggle to reach 500,000 by the end of the year, and the 'legs' aren't going to be that good either.

I expect that it will sell 200k for first week. And not affect wii sales at all.

I reckon its going to do well in the long-run 2-3 mill WW. But i dont think its going to break opening records or even get 400k 1st week.

And these reasons are?


Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Not expecting more than 250k first week.



Wii Sports- over 2 million sold
Wii Play- about 1.7 million sold.

Both still sell at about a 30-50% ratio to hardware sells with the Wii.

Wii Fit- has same brandname title as Wii Sports and Wii Play. Meaning it would be really really hard for it not to sell well. Maybe not like a huge opening week but it will sell a lot for long periods of time. This isn't like Super Mario Galaxy where the title before it, over 5 years ago only sold 880k some odd. This series/brand has 2 titles still out in it selling really well and consistent and will continue to do it.

It'll be a hit. Will it drive up Wii sales? probably. By how much? Who knows.

 "That my massive fanboyism/Nintendo hate prevent me from seeing how an innovation in gaming will sell well at all, just like that fad Wii."

Please, state your reasons.
