Forums - Sales Discussion - Super Mario Galaxy barely moves Wii Hardware

Most you of people are not very bright. How is 250k units sold a bad thing? Japan's market is entirely different than the other markets and expectations for it were way too high to begin with. Market analysts are wrong about 99% of the time. They make stupid predictions that hardly ever come true.

I see Sony fanboys on here talking about how SMG was supposed to be the Wii's savior...are you kidding me? Savior? Really? The number 1 selling home console is not the one that needs a savior. That piece of crap PS3 that has exactly 0 good games and sells like crap is the one that needs a savior. Face it fanboys, Sony's days as the leader are long gone. Nothing is going to change that at this point. MGS4 and GT5 are supposed to save PS3, too bad they both keep getting pushed back over and over.

Sony has 0 big titles for the holiday season. Nintendo has SMG, Mario and Sonic at the Olympics, along with all the other big name titles that are out. Then early 2008 they have SSBB and Mario Kart as well. Name anything Sony has to compete with all of those titles before MGS4, GT5 and FF13? Nothing, nada, zip...

I am really sick of teenagers that don't know anything about games to begin with talking noise about Nintendo. I have been playing video games longer than most of you have been alive. I own a Wii and a 360 and will NEVER own a PS3, period.


 you be my friend <3

That pic was hilarious

@ Soriku

Even if they only shipped 5-600k, it still only sold 250k so that point is irrelevant. Everyone has been heralding SMG as the Wii's savior for sales and blah, blah, blah, but the truth is it wasn't. I just want you to write that SMG did not push Wii sales like everyone expected, that while the game is not a bomb, it did hit with a resounding thud, and only pushed ten thousand more Wiis than usual, and there was no supply constraint since it hasn't been selling as of recent anyway.

No one heralded SMG as Wii's savior in sales because it's the only console in Japan that doesn't need saving.

That said I don't see the point of this thread being made over and over again everyday, it's like people are absolutely furious because SMG didn't flop. It didn't reach most people's expectations but it still did around the same as the other 3D Mario platformers, so it doesn't matter how many times people make this thread and go batshit insane on people who refuse to lie and feed some fanboy wet dream that SMG "bombed," it simply didn't. The game, and the Wii, still has a ways to go before anyone starts screaming absolute conclusions.

What I'm interested in is how Ratchet & Clank's underperformance on the PS3 is being pretty much ignored (or avoided?), I haven't seen one thread address the topic. I'd really like to know what people thought about that, but instead we're getting the same SMG troll threads over and over again.

 



Tag - "No trolling on my watch!"

When FF VII sold "only" sold 490k at launch it was considered a flop by naznatips. FF VII is huge in japan, also SMG sold only 250k without depleting stock, I think it is a bad situation. SMG might not even hit 1 million by years end which is shocking to say the least.

If MARO & SONIc olympics is a "BIG" title

e.g IGN gave it 7.8

THEN

R &C (9.0 on metacritic), Uncharted (stellar previews), haze (maybe) are 3 BIG titles for ps3

if you would've said JUST SMG it would've been ok

but you completely ruined it with saying Mario n sonic olympics...

1. GIFs are against the rules? Then why haven't I been told that? And link?

2. Why a lock?

1. This is a troll thread.

2. Flames (not really...) plus trolling.

@ Rasone77

First off as you can see on my profile, I'm not fourteen. Second, no one posting in this thread are my friends, and third how is this flamebait? There are a couple of threads that have the XBOX 360 beating the PS3. I just wanted people to know that SMG didn't move sales.

@ fake leo-j

the wii does need a savior, it's falling, and fast in Japan. it was at 21k just two weeks ago, that was only 1-2k more than the PS3. I think that justifies the need of a savior.

IGN's reviews are about as important as anything that Bush says these days....

  I've been trying to stay out of this silly argument but I just have to pipe up for this dumber than dirt quote.  Just because sales are falling down to average and not selling out anymore does not mean the console is failing, it's just finally going to normal after a year of being released.  Please realize normal sales does not mean the Wii is in serious trouble.

Mediocre review scores = Flop? Lol. And if you say SMG was a flop, then I can also say R&C was a flop. LOCK THIS THREAD PLEASE!


This is a really lame thread. The wii is beating every home console in Japan, and it needs a savior? So now wii losing just mean wii isn't outselling the PS3 and 360 combined X2? It's selling better than last generations victor, but apparently victory is the new lose.

This flamebait thread is really grasping at straws.
