Nintendo knows that the core gamers who play Call of Duty will just flock to the system anyway, when they see the gamepad controlling drone strikes and missile launches, expanded map, off-screen HUD, multiplayer stats right on the controller. There's no question that those core gamers who love Call of Duty will RUN, not walk, they will RUN to the nearest place to get wii U on launch day. Nintendo doesn't need to bother telling them until right before the game comes out, then it's a done deal for those types of gamers. E3 is a big event where the news leaks to mainstream crap like CNN, so Nintendo focuses on more family-oriented stuff, and purposefully they leave out some important "core" titles.

i wouldn't say no one..  this is my personal favorite of the CoD wii U will be huge posts.

You do realize what you quoted has nothing to do with what he said right.

Nothing in that post suggested it would outsellf PS3/360.  Just that they expected Wii U to not be hurt by it being on 360/PS3.

 

Anyone acually want to find a somewhat comparable situation with another console so it can be honestly evaluated?



Software ranking:

1. New Super Mario Bros. Wii U (243k)
2. ZombiU
3. Scribblenauts Unlimited
4. Call of Duty: Black Ops II (21k)
5. Just Dance 4
6. Nintendo Land (excluding Deluxe set)
7. Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two
8. Batman: Arkham City - Armored Edition
9. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
10. Skylanders: Giants
11. Assassin's Creed III
12. Sing Party
13. Madden NFL 13
14. ESPN Sports Connection
15. Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge

So we know all games below Black Ops II sold less than 21k and ZomiU and Scribblenauts are anywhere between 21k and 243k.



5% attach rate is disgustingly low for the biggest console franchise. There's no way around it.



Ah here is a couple. Call of Duty 2 was a launch game for the 360.

We don't have week one sales.

2 Week sales though were 225,874 in the US. Based on week 3 (and PS3 game sales) i'd guess that meant a launch of around 80-100K. (Why so low, if you look at launch games, they actually got more sales their second week then their first, see the other two games mentioned) So it was about 3 times that on 360 on a console more geared to shooters, but which less consoles around 305K

PS3's shooter was Resistance... and really it's biggest launch game. Wow. Anyway, It sold about 36K first week.on a 139,000 install base. So about a 26% attach rate there.

Another near launch game was Madden 07. Which is similar in that it already had a hardcore following on the 360. Meaning like Black Ops there was a big chance that early converters might not pick it up.

Madden 07 sold ~15K first week. On that 139K install base. Making it around a ~10% install base.

You throw in all the various pros and cons and such, and hopefully that puts things in more perspective.

None of these games are comparable to today's Call of Duty franchise though. 

But, even Resistance had an attach rate of 26%! Wow

Op, your thread is flame bait in the Nintendo Forum.



“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.

Why? Is reporting sales on a sales forum flamebait now? Cry me a river.
