I thought we need to talk about this:
Dead Space Extraction sold 9000 copies in September. It was 5 days on the market, but 9k is not much anyway. Let's be honest here, this is a MAJOR flop. Not even the typical Wii legs will turn this game into a success.
This could have an impact on other hardcore games coming to the Wii.
EA said previously that the performance of Extraction would influence the company's decision to create mature-content games for Wii in the future, and Divnich implied that the publisher’s decision not to heavily market the title may have been based on the poor performance of other mature-rated Wii games released while Extraction was still in development.
So we can still say hardcore games won't sell on the Wii? Let's check:
- The conduit --> 0.27 million
- Madworld --> 0.31 million
- Dead Space Extraction --> currently at 0.05m but obviously overtracked. 0,02 or 0,03 is probably right.
Just for comparison, the Xbox360 version of Dead Space sold 223k and the PS3 version 170k week one.
Imagine not having GamePass on your console...
