Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Prediction: First Week Sales of Super Mario 3D World in Japan?

200K. they are not into zelda so much, and no next-gen competition, so its all about then, and they made some really great ad tv there.

"Hardware design isn’t about making the most powerful thing you can.
Today most hardware design is left to other companies, but when you make hardware without taking into account the needs of the eventual software developers, you end up with bloated hardware full of pointless excess. From the outset one must consider design from both a hardware and software perspective."

Funny, how People predict, it will only sell 120-150k. Even Pikmin 3 sold round abut 90-100k.

I say at least 350k.

You think it will have over at least a %30 attach ratio in just the first week? Granted, more Wii U hardware will be sold in Japan that week, but that's still pretty steep I think. Just for perspective, Sunshine did about 320k in Japan first week I believe and that was on a bigger install base.

I'd say more along the lines of 250k for this one, especially since it seems a little more casual targeted and less likely to be something that's preordered as much.


Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.


165k in Japan.

Predictions! By the end of 2014... PS4: 15 million +, Wii U: 12 million, XOne: 9.5 million! 



EDI:T sorry, there was a typo - i did not mean 218k, i meant 281k ^^
