NSMB Wii sells 936,734 units first week (Famitsu)

Forums - Sales Discussion - NSMB Wii sells 936,734 units first week (Famitsu)

Alright to comment on something ioi said, in holidays sales aren't more front loaded and sell better over that timespan. This is absolutely true and not hard to understand why. Take a game that releases in June and a game that releases in December. Let's say both open to 200,000. In June, the number of people buying a new console or just in a store buying video games is going to be exponentially less than that of someone in December. We call this increase holiday boosts or our general holiday increases. Thus meaning generally they might open to similar sales but because of normal holiday boosts the game released in December will sell more in the subsequent weeks then the game released in June. However, usually because of this and competition, it won't open to such high numbers either but worked for the sake of the example.


OT: as for the sales they are simply incredible. It does seem by the end of the year the game will have at least crossed 2 million. Compare this game and Wii Fit Plus to Nintendo's last holiday season offerings in Japan and you can see how this is a much better predicament for them.

Just get a PS3 or 360 and move on then. 

This is a thread about NSMB Will sales, not anyone's personal issues.



awesome sale for NSMBWii in japan, i wonder how it will sell from here on out in all the regions.

Tail off means slow down, drop away. i.e I expect it to track ahead of the DS version until the first week of Jan where it should start to fall behind and probably end up not having quite the legs but should still make 4 - 4.5m without too much trouble (whereas DS should clear 6).

Reggie said that NSMB Wii would outsell the 360 version of MW2 in the US as of the end of Jan - which it won't, but it won't be as far behind as some people think. Worldwide, it should easily be higher than the 360 version by Jan and should outsell the 360+PS3 versions combined before the end of 2010.

NA currently

360 MW2 4.3m

NSMB 1.5m

by close wat do u think theyll be end of jan?

 

WW currently

360 MW2 6.3

NSMB 2.2

again r saying nsmb will beat MW2 360 ww end of jan 2010 or beginning?

even if mw2 360 doesnt sell a single copy from now till then nsmb will have 2 sell another 3mll in 2 or 1 month(s) and mw2 has to sell none for it to beat it by then

 

nsmb beating both by end of 2010

MW2 ps360 10.4

nsmb 2.2

dont know bout that one it may or may not we still need to se each games legs after jan

 

i dont c nsmb beating mw2 360 ww by jan or being close to it in NA though

Shiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!

I wasn't expecting it to beat NSMBDS, but now thatI think about it, console Mario always sold more in the long run...



Tag - "No trolling on my watch!"

937 k first week.

That´s at the high end of my first prediction (750-950k) and at the low end of my second (very hyped!) prediction (900-1100k). I finally guessed 950 k so I was damn close =)

All in all awesome sales!



Thats a bold prediction ioi! higher than 360 version of MW2 by jan 2010. I'd say more like march-april, thast when the legs will really look strong compared to MW2

@ BHR-3:

That 2.2 million you have for NSMB doesn't include the million it just sold in Japan.

Just be patient, it'll outsell Modern Warfare 2 soon enough... :)
