Still haven't counted the tally of my predictions from last year and this year (busy busy busy). But in a recent thread I wrote about the fate of Madden 2010 (see here and scroll down:http://www.vgchartz.com/forum/thread.php?id=41939&start=0 ), in the midst of that conversation Gamerace mentioned something of interest...
The last time I made a prediction on Madden I ended up eating crow so I think I'll stay clear this time. Madden isn't my forte. But I don't think MS will give up it's Madden crown without putting up a big fight.
BTW: I'm surprised we havn't gotten a Wii Music prediction from you yet.
Well worry no more, Gamerace and Co., the shooting Starman has played the salsa beat across the night sky and I'm glowing rainbows.
I have a prediction, OK? Wow. Nobody likes my Nintendo-themed metaphors. It was supposed to signify inspiration from the heavens where luck is lef...never mind.
Opening week Wii Music sales: 750,000 minimum
VGChartz will display 3/4 of a million to display for Wii Music's opening week.
NPD's October monthly which we won't see until November will show that Wii Music clears 1,200,000 from that October 20th North American release date to the end of their October tracking period.
Like the others in the Wii series like Sports, Play, and Fit, Wii Music will be a tattoo on the monthly top ten in both VGC's & NPD's figures. It won't leave that list for months, years even.
That's right, laddies and gentlewomen, Wii Music will be yet another record-breaking success for Nintendo and its Wii. Usually when Nintendo enters a growing genre they innovate it to their benefit. Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and the rest will still run wild but Wii Music will carve out a nice chunk of this market for themselves. Those who find Guitar Hero and Rock Band too complex to learn will love Wii Music.
By year's end I expect Wii Music to exceed 3,000,000 in just U.S. sales alone.
Worldwide I expect them to clear 5,000,000 by year's end.
Yeah it's a little late but I gotta put something down for the record. Haven't been very active this year I admit.
