1. Super Mario 3D World passes the one million mark becoming the 3rd game to do so. Should be over 1.5m by the end of the year.

2. Wii Party U is the 9th game to sell over 500k. Probably wont make it to 1m this year but may come close.

3. Wonderful 101 passes 101k!!!!!!!

Next week will likely see NSMBU pass 3m and Luigi U will pass 1m in the next 1-2 weeks.

Wait what? 3 million? On Wii U's installed base of under 5 million...? O_o That's crazy. Especially considering how everyone and their grandma's been bashing the game because of its apparently uninspired rehashing. Does that number include digital sales too?

Vgchartz has it at 2.89m and they dont track digital

Not too bad considering what mediocre year 2013 has been for Nintendo and WiiU.
Wish Wonderful 101 had far better sales, because it's actually a good game. However, considering it's a new franchise, released in i period when the market is basically dead, with virtually no marketing attached to it, and for a system that was considered a major flop at the time, I'm not surprised that Wonderful 101 has low sales. What were Nintendo thinking??


It would've done considerably better if it was released during it's original launch window, alongside Pikmin 3, Wii Fit U, Rayman Legends and Aliens: Colonial Marines. Nintendo realised it wouldn't perform as originally planned as evident (I don't think I'm using that right) to their low shipping numbers. They might decide to market this game again once the Wii U gains some traction. 



"thou shalt not commit logical fallacies"

"Alot" is not a word.

First week sales of new releases are (almost) always 1-3 days instead of a full week.

The plural of amiibo is amiibo.

It's funny how some were quick to call SM3DW a flop. I'm glad to see it selling well.

Wow, W101 though, flopped pretty hard. I bought it day 1. Really good game.

2m+ isn't a flop, but relative to the previous games it's not great either.

Still, be interesting to see what it does by the end of the year, it's still overtracked in the US, NPD showed 215k and we have close to 400k?

It was at 235K at the time of NPD so either one cold be accurate Seece and i had a discussion about this 3D World did 200-250K using all estimations possible



bet with ash3336 he wins if Super Mario 3D World sells less than Mario Sunshine during the first three years, I win if 3D World outsells Sunshine's first 3 years. Loser get sig controlled for 3 months (punishment might change)

Do you doubt the WiiU? Do you believe that it won't match the GC?

Then come and accept this bet

TW101 is finally improving because of the $30 price tag
Wii Party U should do 150K next week if sales keep improving or 90K if sales see a slump
3D World is having fantastic legs, shoudl do 1 Million in japan LT

       We should thank Wii Party U a lot since that game is one of the main reasons the Wii U is even selling that well in Japan.

Yeah, the Japanese market really loves this kind of games but what surprised me the most is how well 3D World is holding despite having a bad launch

Its overtracked by like 20k-40k. Your comparing different week sales, VGC adjusted to it (even if it was over by 20k)



Those sales are not bad considering the small userbase. Pikmin 3 will slowly grow in sales and hopefully become a million seller. It is a beautiful game.

TW101 is not for me but for Platinum's sake I do hope it at least recoup enough money as not to be too big a loss, even at the lower price. Shame the game got crap marketing.

Ah I didn't see that, thanks! I wonder if the sales for Nintendo are going to be as high as VGC shows, currently expecting 200% boosts everywhere.

Japan is yeah! Can't use that as a metric for the west tho.

What we know

Nov:

3DS - 770k
WiiU - 220k
Mario World - 215k

First 2 weeks of Dec according to VGC, with 3 to come (2 of the biggest)

3DS - 560k
WiiU - 185k
Mario World - 195k

3DS I see being correct, WiiU and Mario World we will see, we've yet to see WiiU pull those kind of increases in December.
