Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Goldeneye outselling Modern Warfare Wii sku for the comparable period.

It was expected.

Let's hear it for Activision, "hip hip HOORAAAYYYY!!!!!"

One would hope since it's a Wii exclusive so multi-console owners won't be getting the HD version for once.



 

well i bought Goldeneye and been playing it for a while now and it is very good. the best FPS i have played on Wii!



    R.I.P Mr Iwata :'(

If developers put the effort on Wii games it will sell. Eurocom is not one of the top developers but they did a really good job with Goldeneye and that makes me want to support companies like them. Ones who put effort in Wii games.

There are plenty of developers that put effort on the Wii but still sold very little.

Goldeneye is a very poor example of what the Wii can do or not. It's the sequel/remake of what is considered by many to be the best FPS of all time.

Effort isn't good on its own, nor is lack of effort bad on its own. It's also what kind of game it is. Loads of effort on a game in genre that is unpopular, and gets no marketing, won't matter.

This is in a genre that is even popular on the Wii, and the game has marketing (MWR had none, not even the after release ads that WaW did). Of course it's selling better.



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

"It would seem that the re-imaging of Goldeneye 007 is far more tempting a purchase to Wii owners than that of last year’s blockbuster title Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, according to comments from Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg."

This may be because MW2 wasn't released on the Wii last year.  Reflex, perhaps?

I wonder if Activision will be so upbeat if, as I suspect, they see Wii sales of Black Ops disappoint as a result of releasing GoldenEye just a few days before it.

That's an interesting thought and makes me want to think up a conspiracy theory.

Goldeneye's main purpose could be Activision setting up an excuse to stop making CoD games for the Wii in the future. Funding one game (Goldeneye) to save the money of two or three others (future CoDs) makes financial sense.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Well no, i think that developers that put the same type of game on HD systems met success on the wii.Developers who made really weird aproaches in genres that dont even exist in other systems met with failures as they would elsewhere, not always but mostly.

So effort alone isnt gonna sell you anywhere but making sure you got a market works.Core wii owners, the ones who buy CODs, Conduits and shooters, etc,will look for quality and a solid experience. Goldeneye is good, its making itself known and has a good future beyond the first weeks because of its quality.It might not be the fairest example,given the fact that is indeed a franchise(but hey, best HD selling games are franchises as wel).

On topic:

Hum , Reflex started very low ,because lack of player awareness, and then picked up rapidly.

At the other hand, GE has a fully aware playerbase.So results might vary.

i hope wholeheartily that GE stablishes the million mark , to encourage at least activision to keep producing wii core games. Besides the mandatory COD.

And no, i dont think BO will be affected severely by GE. Im sure Activision wants to embrace both venues of income and the game features and earned wii playerbase will keep it strong, GE or not.



 The last COD on wii didnt sell much first week, it picked it up just after a few weeks, so I hope GE does as well. I am almost sure that COD will do well, I think activison thought that whoever is buying COD will buy GE, so that why they put them together... Hopefully two more million sellers on the wii...

Nostalgia? That makes sense.



Tease.

Personally, it's not that which attracts me to the game. It's taking what wat good about the first game and improving it. I have no illusions about the first game being dated (but still good).
