Which will sell more lifetime?

CoD WiiU
CoD Vita
Pretty tied (within 100k)
Just want to see results

Call of Duty has released on both Vita and WiiU and both met with what for the franchise are terrible sales, so far.  Currently sales are

CoD Black Ops II (WiiU) - 160k
CoD Black Ops Declassified - 450k

The Vita game has been on sale for longer, however the WiiU game has already dropped below the weekly sales of the Vita game.

Lets list some Pro's and Cons of each version.

WiiU Pro's:
- Main CoD title
- Fully featured multiplayer
- Local multiplayer (which Nintendo love to market for WiiU)
- Several control options
- WiiU userbase will likely overtake the VIta very soon, so a larger possible consumer base
- Game reviewed well and is a good game
- Has all the CoD game modes.

Vita Pro's:
- Exclusive title

WiiU Cons:
- Multiplatform
- Nintendos console typically favour first party game sales

Vita Cons:
- Spin off title
- Gimped multiplayer
- Lots of missing modes
- Reviewed badly and is a sub par CoD game
- Vita selling slowly, not likely to have anywhere near WiiU consumer base


Which Call of Duty will sell more life time?

The Wii U one will sell the most lifetime, or at least, the CoD franchise will see more lifetime sales on Wii U because the Wii U install base will grow much faster than the Vita one.

I LOVE ICELAND!

The Vita will sell more due to being bundled but if Activition and any sub developer takes the time to create a decent game, it will sell.

I really REALLY want to say that Call of Duty sales on the Wii U have already peaked (i.e there will be no Wii U title next year) but I think Activition will give it a go once more (due to Nintendo's $$)

I think the Vita, because a lot of people believed it to be the title for the vita, and hey when there is a bit of smoke, you typically get some sales. (Regardless of the quality).



 

CoD Black Ops Declassified sales are higher due to two factors: bundling and heavy marketing.

Around the Network
Declassified is getting bundled like CrAzY!! plus it's an exclusive,

Wii has CoD bundles too, like the Vita bundle consumers have options, is why not every bundled Vita game is selling equally.

Bundles. That's what's made the difference.

One is a decent game the current userbase doesn't seem to want, yet.

The other is a terrible, terrible game, one of the worst of all time, but the userbase seem numb to this.

Strange.

But we can agree both have sold very badly. Given that one has sold millions on other consoles and the other was supposedly a game changer for the worst selling gaming hardware for over a decade.

Is great how you continually make up bullshit just so can use that bullshit to try and make a point.

I'm sorry? What's wrong with my post?
