How much did Ocarina of Time sell on Virtual Console? Does anyone have figures?

The only one I know of is the Channel Surfing news articles that The Source / TWRoO / someone else lead with the help of other VGChartz members to gather the data. It stopped midway into 2009, though. This is the most recent article I could find: http://www.vgchartz.com/article/4393/channel-surfing-wiiwarevirtual-console-sales-chart-june-2009/

So 930,000 midway into 2009. It had been averaging 10,-20,000 a month for most of the time we did it, if I recall correctly. If it managed 10,000 a month up to now, that's 300,000 more. However, you have to take into account that there's a very large margin of error, due to the methodology used to ge the numbers.

Thus, I think it's safe to say that Ocarina of Time on Virtual Console is at somewhere between 1.0 and 1.5 million.


Thankyou!

So that means, in total (minus the promotional disks) Ocarina of Time has probably sold about 12 million copies to date.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Considering the sales of Wii Fit, we can't blame the controller requirements for this one. If people really wanted this game and didn't have MPluss, they would get it just for that, If some people aren't buying this game, it's not because getting MPlus is really that much of an obstacle.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Plus, just for the hell of it: Kelly Brook at the 2008 BAFTAs

Lol. x'D

Almost no games will ever do Mario Kart numbers. What did the Wii one sell, like 30 million? :p

31.46 million, and still selling.  Which is the 3rd best selling game of all time, and the best-selling not fully bundled one. To date, no game has ever properly managed to match Mario Kart Wii's sales.

For the record, the DS version is the 13th best selling game of all time, at 23 million, and the 9th best not fully bundled one.

Considering how that game is considered both the best game and remake of all time, comparisons with a merely great Zelda are cruel. Especially one that had so much going against it.



Love and tolerate.

Well, yes, so my point exactly. It's insanity!

It's sort of amusing, really. Ocarina of Time is by critics now both the highest rated (going by gamerankings) console game of all time, and the highest rated hanheld game of all time.

17 million (or whatever it's looking to end at) really isn't enough. And that statement obviously has nothing to do with Ocarina of Time being my favourite game. Nothing at all.
