Does anyone know how long it took Crystal Chronicles to reach 1 mil on the gamecube?




If Nintendo goes 3rd party I think there's a very good chance.


so if without a doubt PS3/XBox360 is going to have more 3rd party million sellers, is the Wii really winning in the eyes of 3rd parties?

It took the PS3 like 6 months longer to get its first 3rd party million seller compared to the Wii.  I'm betting the Wii will have more 3rd party million sellers than the PS3 will have.  How did Guitar Hero 3 sell on the PS3 compared to the Wii?

That's a big assumption on the PS3 side of the field, but the Wii doesn't need sales to compete for 3rd party efforts.  Third parties can develop comperable games for a faction of the cost of the PS3 if they instead target the Wii.

GH3 sold roughly twice as many on Wii as PS3. 1.6mil vs. .8mil

I dunno. OTOH the 3rd parties would certainly be losing.



Well will third party devs start advertising or are they gonna close their eyes and wish their games into everyone's mind so they can buy it.

Look at the few good third party games that were advertised RE4 over a million, RE UC guaranteed million, RS over a million, Rayman Raving Rabbids over a million, Mario and sonic going through the roof.

Wii games are not exempt from the necessary process to sell games and one day third party companies need to get that.

As long as they aren't putting any serious effort into developing Wii games they shouldn't have any reason or right to complain about their sales. 



no, no million seller 3rd party games ever anymore, as the wii pretty much stopped selling and now everyone trades the wii in for the cool ps3.
