It proves the Wii truly deserves the dominance it has. Why release 10 hardcore games which sell 2M at most each when you can release one Mario Kart and sell 20M!

I'd actually rather have MORE games to play, then be happy if HEAVY RAIN were to sell 20 mill or not. But that's another thread. It's good for the game either way.

I seem to remember Leo j made a thread about how GTA4 would kill off the Wii at around that time too. I think he may also have made one about LBP killing the Wii.

Its only a matter of time, (SHAMS this )

I predict my biggest and best prediction yet.

GTA 4 will kill the wii, and sales will drop for the system, the 360 will seem like its made a huge comeback and likely outsell the wii World wide (with the exception of japan) as for the PS3 I will say it will fall under the 360 and probably match wii sales world wide.

This all comes with this:

GTA is the game that made the ps2, it will define this gen, and will redeem us of this drought.

The wii is a great console, but not one that deserves these sales, I am expecting that GTA 4 will bring the PS3 up and 360 much higher than halo 3 achieved.

This is my prediction, GTA will kill the wii.



Anyone can guess. It takes no effort to throw out lots of predictions and have some of them be correct. You are not and wiser or better for having your guesses be right. Even a blind man can hit the bullseye.

So much for Gran Turismo being the king of racers!

(Sales wise of course.)



It's just that simple.

It lost that title (saleswise) a while ago. You're a tad late.



                                                                                                                                            

Well it does say "wii" in the game's name. It looks like something that's needed to make a wii game sale a hell of a lot.

Less is more?



Tease.

I haven't been keeping track. I got over 100+ 360 games to play lol.

How much is "A Hell of a lot"

Because 20 million isn't a fair bar

I agree completely. That's why I'm opposed to over-engineered graphics. Just imagine, you could play three different takes on the concept of Heavy Rain in SD instead of just a single game with attention to detail that's far down the curve of diminishing returns.

Why would fans care about a game that sells 20 million, when they could have multiple games with moderate - great sales? Come to think of it, most fans don't care that Mario Kart Wii sold 20 million copies.

I'm not saying that sales don't matter to anybody, as obviously the devs would love them to be high. But why should any GAMER care that this game just crossed 20 million? It was a success before that so 20 million just proves that it's a monstrous success. If there are more games to play with less sales though, I don't see why the majority would care for ONE game that does this. More games = more incentive to buy a said console, thus, the industry continues forward.

The PlayStation 2 wasn't a success story because Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec sold 14mill+. It was because of the plethora of titles that graced the console, which to this day, is the highest in history.
