You shan't doubt the power of John Lucas.

I believed him since Day 1.

60 Million Wiis.

End of 2008.

Nakushitemo torimodosu kimi wo

I will never leave you

It doesn't need a particularly good week to pull off 650k, the sustained numbers the last few weeks have been in the 45-50k range mostly. 70-75k is almost probable in golden week!



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

very impressive especially considering that GTA was released.

 The people who would buy the game were people who already had the system. Did not seem to attract people who did not have the system and wanted the game.

 Because clearly the HD consoles got no hardware boost at all from GTA. Reread the charts, man, I think you missed a few key details...

yeah i gotta think its overtracked, no offence to the guys who get the numbers.

Like come on, its having its best non holiday week ever during GTA4 week!



Lots of retailers in the USA got a supply of Wiis comparable to Black Friday week in 2007 (the biggest week of the year) for this week.
