Do you think Wii Sports would sell as much as did if it wasn't bundled?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Do you think Wii Sports would sell as much as did if it wasn't bundled?

The real question is: why would we ever care?

Here's another useless speculation for you... how much would the xbox have sold if it didnt have Halo?

It's such a boring, terrible tech demo that the average Wii owner plays it for a mere 34.5 hours. What a piece of crap!

Not a lot, less copies in homes since not bundled, less viral effect.

A tech demo like Duck Hunt was to the lightgun? Or Mario 64 to the analog stick?



Nov 2016 - NES outsells PS1 (JP)

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

It would be ~20Million.

no, it wouldn't. it's a crap package of some watered down party games.



in japan the attach rate is at 43% so if it sold similar in Americas and others it would sell

10.10m in Americas
7.95 in others
21.62 in total



Obviously not, heh.

I did not touch my copy of Wii Sports at all. So I wouldn't have got it if it wasn't bundled. Here you go.

First off, Wii games don't cost $60. They cost $50 max, unless they come with peripherals.

Second, yes, it IS a tech demo. A tech demo that's a lot more fun and better programmed than many of the other casual so-called "games" on the Wii that were just made to try cashing in on the "casual movement".

 

*note: Malstrom has a good blog about this and the fact that devs are idiots and keep trying to cash in on the wrong thing that the Wii is doing.

First off, that's my opinion. (should I even mention it?)

Second, here in Canada (at least eastern), Wii games cost 60$.

Also, I don't understand your note.

Duck Hunt and Mario 64 are no tech demo.
