Yet another Troll who says ludicrous things like these...

 

a) Why should they? It'll cost more so it'll fall harder

b) It probably won't get as many sales

c) even discounting A and B, why shouldn't they release it retail? What incentive is there for a Wii/DS game to warrant only a DLC pricetag? 

 

Face it, it'd be commercial suicide. Plus it's on the DS. Buy a DS and play it if you want to, so stop dreaming

I have a DS, but I won't be buying this.

You don't know how this would sell on XBLA/PSN either. You really can't prove this is most profitable on the DS.

I love okami but im gonna say around 500,000-600,000

Really? That's below the Wii version...


hmm the wii version only sold 350,000 in japan and america?

And the rest-It's been said to have sold over 650,000WW in Guiness World Records 2010 (up to 31stMarch 2010), indicating it's well undertracked on Vgchartz...

Wasn't the Guiness record for PS2 and Wii version combined ?

thats what i thought.

No, I'm fairly certain it's the Wii version, hence it's under "Wii"

don't believe every thing the guiness book of world records says,  Iam the worlds most handsome man  despite what ever lies are in that book ,

789122 copies will be sold



Hmm.....we can't tell what platform the game will be most successful on, but an XBLA or PSN iteration without motion controls isn't likely to sell well and with motion controls won't have a big enough install base. A wii version costs more so is more risky. A DS version is a much smaller risk due 2 the reasons I stated earlier.

Exacxtly my reasons :)



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

I don't see this game doing that well period, let alone 1 mil lol. Who actually said yes? The hype for this game is minimal, and Okami is pretty niche.

The hype isn't MASSIVE, no, but neither was that for Boom Blox, now look where we are...

Look at my profile picture. Would that game have been better off on the PS3? Maybe, but I highly doubt it. You can't spread yourself too thin, or be indecivive. You need to just say "OK, we're doing this. Get to work" or you'll end up with a rushed game spread too thin (Other M) or a game which is out of place on the Console (The Conduit)

As for Monster Hunter, no, we'll never know, but do you think that'll bother Capcom? I don't think it will...

OK, but an Okami game won't have the same appeal Boom Blox did.

There's only been 1 before, there's no real gauge...

Whilst I agree with you, it's hard to tell how much something will sell this far in advance. But It'll be close.

 

Also, out of interest, does anyone know if the 2nd week JP sales were any good?



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

 There hasn't even been any third party million sellers on this DS this year aside from Dragon Quest has there?  Fewer and fewer are coming through now too with the DS software sales in decline. No chance at a million imo, especially what with it's launch so close to the 3DS.

 I'd be surprised if this ever hit 6 figures in Europe.
