Metroid Prime trilogy sales predictions.

Forums - Sales Discussion - Metroid Prime trilogy sales predictions.

Numbers for pre-orders are not yet at 100k in the U.S, and those numbers are totally unknown for Europe (and usually buys less units of Metroid series), so expect 150k for the first week (U.S and Europe sales combined) and 450k lifetime. Just look the actual sales for Metroid 3 Corruption on the wii. It's a great game that is not taking great numbers for the pasts months. I would say that the total sales for the third part are now at 1.5 million 8quite good), so, you really expect such a great boost in sales? Why? Only because of the new controls? Obviously three games for the price of just one it's a good temptation, but for great graphics, and great controls there is MP 3 Corruption, and nobody is buying it (and less before the announcement of MP Trilogy).
I really would like MPTrilogy could sell a lot, but i don't think so.
Instead of sales, MP is one of the best franchises in videogame history!!

Hopefully Metroid: Other M can bring some more players into the Metroid fold with (what looks like) its more action-oriented approach, and then we can get a new smash hit first person Metroid for Wii's successor...



I'm really tempted to pick the trilogy up.....just too many games and not enough time :(



The only teeth strong enough to eat other teeth.

I just received mine (imported it from the US since I don't know if we'll get the metallic box in Europe) and... WOW... just for the packaging, it would be worth it. And it's a great excuse to replay the whole saga :)

I would say 500k it's a given. I don't think it'll get to 1M, though.



     

 

I would say 300K first week as there is already 100k pre-orders in the us and i would expect another 100k with europe adding in 50k so i am thinking at 250k first week with lifetime of 1.5m to 2m.. I think it can do 2m lifetime......

2 M lifetime is the most laughable prediction yet. Don't be silly... MP3 wasn't even able to do such numbers. I will stick to my predictions. They may end up higher but never above 1 million.

Bets with Conegamer:

Pandora's Tower will have an opening week of less than 37k in Japan. (Won!)
Pandora's Tower will sell less than 100k lifetime in Japan.
Stakes: 1 week of avatar control for each one.

well not really its possible...like ph4nt said it desrves 10m+ but will not get that much but i see 2m happening because the preorders are 100K in the us alone count canada and europe and i think it should be able to get to 300k first week and 2m lifetime..just so you know the game is sold out here in my area and i am not talking about going 10km the farthest i went 50km and still sold out also soldout near the border of us and sold out in buffalo ny

100k first week, 500k lifetime



I dont think itll reach 1million. Do we even know if Nintendo is making multiple shipments of the game? Its tin case makes me think its more of a limited time deal.

500k-600k tops.
