Forums - Sales Discussion - What system will have the next game to push into the top 20 games of all time?

We can even include digital sales as long as they are official numbers {not likely}. Not including mobile, since every game seems to get downloaded 50 million times these days. Helps that alot of them are free.

 

Remember that the Wii U is not meant to be a big casual system like the Wii was. So we are told. Since the Casuals do not even know what it is for certain, I would agree with this for now.

Nintendo likes to mega bundle all of their big games so...very likely Nintendo.

 

...uhh...ill just put my favorite quote of all time here.

"Welcome to Pain, the second of three...You have dealt the first...now deal with me!!"

Super Mario Land outsold Super Mario 3 (NES)!? For shame.

To answer the question in the thread title, probably the WiiU since Nintendoland is bundled.


↓Nintendo Easy↓
Pokemon Diamond and Pearl seem most likely if no big names are coming out. GTA5 but being multiplat it sell like 16mil and 14mil on X360 and PS3 but not within a year!

Pokemon only needs 10k which this year it sold around 85k. I think next year it can pull it off before holidays if not during it!



If we include multiplate I believe there are plenty of games that have and will pass it. I would like to see what the top games are including multiplate. Too bad we cannot play around with the chartz like that.

How the hell did duckhunt sell that much?

Anyways, pokemon diamond and pearl will most likely kick super mario land off.

Those pokemon have legs for years! Still selling at Walmart.  Quite a bit too!

 

It is surprising that Duck Hunt does not have as many sales as Mario since it was included with Mario. Both were bundled with the system if I remember correctly. Was that included?



Is nintendoland included with every or most Wii Us?

Cool. Do you know how that sells in comparison to the cheaper one by any chance?
