Well, people don't buy grafix intensive games like Call of Dutty for the Wii. And for good reason. For those games they get a HD console, such as the X360 60Gb for €250.



I figured the PS3 and 360 sales would be horrible due to CoD4 still being new basically.

In anecdote, most people who I see commenting about CoD5 seem to have this anti-WW2 thing going on.



I'm Unamerica and you can too.

The Hunt Begins 4/20/2010 =D

I think the game sold much more than 60.000 worldwide. Wii gamers are probably not the typical online gamers. I'd put the amount of gamers that makes an online acount in the first 3 days at around 1 in 5, which would mean closer to 100.000 first week, which is fine. Wii games have longer legs and I'm sure this game will reach 500k over the holidays.

This is an interesting post. You say 1 in 5 WaW owners are avid online players, correct? I'm thinking it's closer to 1 in 3, but it will be interesting to see how much the game will sell in its first 2 weeks (I myself am doubting it will break 100k even in 2 weeks).

Well, it's not like hardcore online gamers would buy this for Wii...Single player would for most people be the first station. Hell, I had to take a few days before I started Mario Kart online.
Plus I don't know how the online system works for this game. You might even only see the acounts of a certain region.

CoD 3 sold more on Wii then on PS3, and while I don't expect that to happen CoD:WaW will definitely do well. It will certainly sell more then CoD 3, which was a crappy game.

I played people from both the US and UK, and I'm from the Netherlands, so the online is region free.

I hope it really sold better than my prediction, World at War is the best shooter on the Wii with amazing online multiplayer and an intense single player. It at least needs to outsell Call of Duty 3 which sold about 750k.



Chrizum, you haven't answered my question yet!



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

That was because you were spamming. But ok, to answer your question, I didn't guesstimate the amount of online accounts like you did with rankings, because you can view the top and bottom ranks of the world. I only guesstimated the amount people that bought the game but didn't go online yet.

Concering Trauma Center, it's obvious that uploading your score isn't as big a part of the game as is the multiplayer in Call of Duty. The target audience of Call of Duty are young male gamers who want to pwn people online (), whereas the target audience of Trauma Centre is everybody (it's a pretty mainstream game, I think).

I haven't played Trauma Centre so I can't really eleborate any more on the subject.
