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

i bet it would have sold more if unbundled

We'll never know but I would estimate 10-15 million sales if it hadn't been bundled.



Wouldnt sell more than 5 million if it wasnt attached. I mean how many gamers actually play that 3 months after they buy it? None. Unless they did not buy any new games.

Then why is it the seventh most played game on the Wii?

Wow! How wrong can you be? It's not bundled in Japan and it sold 3.5 million. So you're saying that it wouldn't have sold more than 1.5 million copies in the Americas and Others in 2.5 years.

I would have to agree on this.



MikeB predicts that the PS3 will sell about 140 million units by the end of 2016 and triple the amount of 360s in the long run.

Since it has twice the install base of any other Wii game, it actually is the most played game on the Wii, and probably of the generation.

The other games can fight over most played per owner.

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

Such blatant negativity makes me laugh out loud.

Considering Wii Fit has already sold 20 million copies, i think Wii sports would have sold 30-35 million by now.

WiiFit was bundled with new revolutionary hardware (The Balance Board), WiiSports was nothing more then an interesting tech demo. To be honest as a launch title and its lifespan till today I'd expect around 10-million in sales maybe a tad more. I think WiiSports Resort bundled with WiiMotionPlus will answer the question, we will be able to see how well WiiSportsResort sells and based on that can see how well WiiSports may have sold had it not been bundled.

I know I for one am considering getting my WiiMotionPlus bundled with RedSteel2 rather then getting WiiSportsResort. I think WiiSportsResort will sell well thanks to the publicity WiiSports has thanks to it being bundled. In the end WiiSports was a cheaply developed tech demo and WiiSports Resort is while not as small as WiiSports still cheaply developed.


The main thing we can be sure of, Nintendo is going to make a fortune for very little effort. Unfortunetly it goes to show you that Nintendo is getting lazy. No longer launching multi-year big budget titles instead opting for smaller month to year long tech demo's!
