You think that Wii U will outsell N64? Its below GameCube at same point in time, how will it suddenly get the jump to bear its predecessors

Probably not, I mean, I dont think Remakes ever outsold the original? (Correct me if I am wrong)


Mario 64 DS came close but missed it by 1m (mario64:11m, mario64ds: 10m) but no, not that I know of


That isn't a fair fight though. The original was on a home console from the mid 90's (much lower adoption rate hardware wise and much cheaper game price) and the other was on the most successful handheld ever.


Mario 64 came bundled right? Correct me if I am wrong

I'm sure Smash 4 is going to give the WiiU a much needed boost, but I don't think it will the save the system..

Nope. Unless they make a bundle that includes that game and is their only bundle.

It's not impossible if you include digital, but even then it's unlikely. Remakes outselling the original is pretty unheard of. Which really doesn't make any sense to me, but that's the reality of it.



No but it should manage about 50% of the original's sales.

I don't think it was bundled in the states. I have found some PAL bundles from 1998, but nothing for the US or anywhere else and nothing near the consoles launch.

It wasn't. The only thing bundled with the N64 in some stores, was an extra controller. I've never seen M64 ever bundled here.

I didn't think so. I remember thinking how weird it was as well because up until that point every Nintendo console launched with a Mario.
