Locked: 3rd party sales math games!

Forums - Sales Discussion - 3rd party sales math games!

Anyone so kind as to do this... Please post it in here. Wii/PS3 3rd party game sales... ONLY if it's on BOTH consoles. EDIT: updated info. EDIT2: Adding a system to show how much money the 'publisher' made. I will say publisher because the developer gets paid... whatever the deal between the publisher/developer is. So Publisher is the easiest way to see who gets the money. You can say the PS3 costs more to develop for, but that is the wrong answer, as it costs about 25-50% more to make the games for, yet the 360 is on the same technology level, wich actually makes the PS3 30% cheaper than a Wii to develop for. PS3 - 60$ -12 (store profit) -8 (sony royalties) = 39$ profit/unit sold Wii - 50$ -10 (store profit) -6 (nintendo royalties) = 35$profit/unit sold PS3 NFS: C = 185,500 (NET income 7,234,500) Wii NFS: C = 128,250 (NET income 4,488,750) PS3 Victory. 57,250 units CoD3 Wii = 251 250 (NET income 8,793,750) CoD3 PS3 = 212 000 (NET income 8,268,000) Wii Victory. 39,250 units Madden PS3 = 335,250 (NET income 13,074,750) Madden Wii = 311,250 (NET income 10,893,750) PS3 Victory. 24,000 units PS3 Marvel: Ultimate Alliance - 160000 (NET income 6,240,000) Wii Marvel: Ultimate Alliance - 207750 (NET income 7,271,250) Wii Victory. 47,750 units Total Sales PS3 = 892,750 Wii = 898,500 Wii victory. 5,750 units

and still... they make double profit from the Wii games. So what if they sell equally or even less?

No. PS3 versions cost 10$ more specifically to fix that problem. They get double the money off each PS3 version sold. In all honesty, it wouldn't surprise me, if they actually double the income. I'll add a 'total money to publisher' thing. (how much the developer gets is up to the deal with them and the publisher... so I'll just go with publisher) Expect it soon!

If you treat it serious, why no XBOX360 figures ? Also, the royalty & store profit amounts is what you are "imagine", right ?

I am pretty sure a developer said that making a full HD next-gen game is kinda painful and they have to pay more money and spend more time.

That's the only I disagree with you on and that's just because that won't hold true to each game, games where graphics aren't that different, it won't make that big of a deal, considering the fact that PS3 games should always blow the Wii version out of the water graphically it doesn't. True it looks better but not 350 dollars better. So I don't think that's totally accurate. Now if they where to port RFOM then yeah I could see it costing more to make it cause they would have to downplay the graphics so much.



 

  

 

May I ask why we only is looking at 3rd party non exclusives? I mean the biggest seller for PS3 might be 3rd party (FF) so why not look at the total 3rd parties sales? I mean it should be more intressting to see which game is selling the most a specific game that is only target that hardware or a game that goes for any plattform. I mean the two best selling 3rd party games for Wii is Rayman and Red Steel for the moment. I will say that MGS4 and FF will be the best for PS3. But those games hasn't been realesed yet. Well anyway I don't get the meaning of this because it exclude a lot of games for both ps3 (I guess) and Wii that is exclusive on the chosen plattform. I mean we can't state that a consol is better on selling games when we aren't looking on all 3rd party titles.



 

 

Buy it and pray to the gods of Sigs: Naznatips!

Why force it to be only on both consoles? Do third party sales not count if they are exclusive?
