Predict Wii U Sales MK8 Launch Week and 2 Following Weeks

Forums - Sales Discussion - Predict Wii U Sales MK8 Launch Week and 2 Following Weeks

I think people are vastly overestimating this and setting themselves up for disappointment. 80K week one, 67K week 2, and 50K week three. Where it goes from there depends on a few factors. I would guess we're do for a Wii Sports Club hard copy around June-July, Bayonetta for September, X late October (Japan at least), and the flagship NFP game in October for the US. Hyrule Warriors also seems like a possible Fall title. Those should be able to keep sales at around 50K, give or take 10K a week. Holidays are kind of up in the air. It's seeming increasingly more likely that Smash may be the only huge holiday release, which would not be good.

Of course, I'll be happy to be proven wrong. Who know, maybe sales will rise to 100K per week.

Hmmm.
102 June 1
85 June 7
62 June 14
And hopefully stabilizing around 55K a week 4th week onward.



No more than 80 first week. Guaranteed.

after mk8, wii u will never go below x360, ps3 and vita.


I agree with this. Also i believe it will make a decent fight against the Xbox One.



I don't know about Wii U sales, but I think that it's a safe bet to think that MK8 itself will sell somewhere around 500k-1 mil. the first week. It's a big release, and a big deal "AAA" title, so even stores like Gamestop will actually bother promoting it.

A million? Really? That seems unlikely. 500k a stretch but posssible a million would kind of blow my mind.



Check the link below. (note to Admins: it's not really porn please don't ban me!)

 

1st. 2,000,000

2nd. 400,000

3rd. 200,000

Won't beat out the XOne, but close give or take to the PS3.  PS4 and 3DS will remain on top.



180.000
120.000
70.000
55.000

Week one 80,000 is crazy talk.  So you're like saying it will sell like a million lifetime.  First week I thinking 3,500,000 sold.  My first post I have it 2,000,000, but I didn't do it justice and selling Mario Kart 8 short.  It's still number one on Amazon Japan.  It will sell a least a million copies in all countries.  This thread is filled with alot of haters.
