What I mean, without the bundle, Prime would have sold about 2.2 - 2.0 Mio. And I think these are realistic numbers for the first game in a trilogy. Nintendo could have expected sales numbers about 1,5 - 2 Mio, and THESE are the expectations (to my mind), for Other M , too. I don´t believe, that they really expected, Other M will sell more than 3 Mio units. maybe they hoped it, but it´s a difference between hoping and expecting. Especially, when you look at Team Ninja sales, too. none of their games sold ever more than 2 Mio units! So why should they expect from a franchise, which has average sales about 1.5 Mio and a developer, who has average sales of about 1 Mio exploding sales about 3 Mio? Other M will make a profit, not as big as they hoped, but it will.
Many people don´t liek the prime trilogy, too. Some people always have to complain, it´s ok. There won´t be a game everybody likes... And now they hyped it up (I love the trilogy, but I love OM , too ^^)
