Because Nintendo fans don't buy anything else?

We would if third party companies would step up more.  The few 3rd party games that had some actual effort put into them for the Wii usually sold decently.

Is this a real question? Why does the Wii sell more games???

Simple: the games on Wii appeal to a far broader audience than the teenage male-pandering PS360.

(Hold your fire there, fanboys, we all know this is true, so let's not get our panties in a bunch over the painfully obvious*.)

Mmmmm... Disagree... PSAllstars Battle Royale looks like a flop and has the PS in the name... Don't u agree??


No. 'Playstation' isn't a console. 'Playstation' is a brand. The console is called 'Playstation 3'. Had Sony name it 'Paystation 3 All Star Battle Royale', then you'd have a point....

...but you don't

Not really, excluding the Dancing-Music-Rhythm/Casual-Excersise-Sports-etc games/1st party exclusives this is how it would look like:

 

21 LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga Wii 2007 Action LucasArts 3.09 1.26 0.00 0.46 4.81
36 Disney Epic Mickey Wii 2010 Platform Disney Interactive Studios 1.76 0.55 0.11 0.23 2.66
37 LEGO Batman: The Videogame Wii N/A Adventure Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment 1.47 0.83 0.00 0.26 2.56
38 Sonic and the Secret Rings Wii 2007 Platform Sega 1.08 1.15 0.04 0.28 2.55
44 LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures Wii N/A Adventure LucasArts 1.43 0.56 0.00 0.21 2.19
45 Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz Wii 2006 Misc Sega 0.99 0.90 0.04 0.23 2.16
46 Call of Duty 3 Wii N/A Shooter Unknown 1.12 0.82 0.00 0.22 2.16
47 Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition Wii 2007 Action Capcom 1.25 0.51 0.14 0.20 2.10
48 Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure Wii 2011 Action Activision 1.00 0.86 0.00 0.22 2.08
49 LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Wii 2010 Adventure Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment 1.11 0.74 0.00 0.21 2.07

 

Not even the highly Japan praised Monster Hunter Tri didnt even make it near the numbers of a Mario game or the usual third party title you would see in any other platform (or should I say not even in the top 25 for Wii)

50 Monster Hunter Tri Wii 2009 Role-Playing Nintendo 0.56 0.35 1.05 0.10 2.06

 

 

That is unless VGChartz numbers are off/wrong/etc.

Nintendo fanbase only buy first party because they dont have a choice.

Funny thing is the top 10 , omfg nintendo top 10 dont have a single game i would buy , tops 10 should be the mario galaxy games, metroid games, the last story, xenoblade and zelda.

Mind blown.

@basil, well after looking at that list of games I would say that any of those games selling over 2 million would be a decent success. None of those titles really jumps out at me. As for Monster Hunter, it did pretty damn good selling over 2 million. There are 3 PSP Monster Hunter games that sold more (Monster Hunter Freedom Unite sold the most at 5.35) . However, if you compare Monster Hunter 1+2 to 3 in sales then it looks a lot better.
