Wii Music ...good sales ,but probably sub 100K for the first week.Wii Fit didnt start so strong after all....but I keep thinking Wii Music wont be ,by a large margin , close to Wii Fit.

Wii Music will sell the least of the Wii series games. If it's anything like the others though, it won't have much of a drop off. It's not a game that people rush out to buy on the first day. It'll sell steadily for the rest of the week.

Wii Chess say hi

I think that WiiMusic has a lot of sale potential.

It's not like WM will sell bad, there's still the holidays...



Bet - "PES 2009 (PS3) will sell (closer to) 150k first week in Japan" - Pooperscopper
"It will sell closer to 125k" - Me I agree.
ME = OWNED :(

Wii: 78 million
X360: 35 million

you guys kill me with your over reaction to FIRST DAY SALES! First day sales...Really? It's like no one pays attention to how Wii games sale. =/

32/40 (aka 8/10), which is a good score.

 

Hope Sky Crawlers will have legs for the rest of the week... but if it sold already 25% of the shipment, then there's no way it could have great sales...!! @___@

 

And 54k day one for Wii Music is actually good, 'cause a game's sales like this one can't be jugded by what it sold in its first day/week/(or even) month, since they have huge legs, like Wii Fit, which was already released a year ago and it's still in Top 10, week after week. ;P

WTF is wrong, how can a game like SkyCrawlers bomb that bad??

I honestly find no explanation for that.

Bets with Conegamer:

Pandora's Tower will have an opening week of less than 37k in Japan. (Won!)
Pandora's Tower will sell less than 100k lifetime in Japan.
Stakes: 1 week of avatar control for each one.

[WII] Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces (Bandai Namco) - 3k

Sky Crawlers tanked.

 

Booooooooo!!!!



wow.

Wii Fit didn't open that great.



No surprise there. All 'normal' games seem to bomb on Wii. Japanese developers are best served continuing to make them for the PS2 and maybe due a Wii port.

Wii Music sells about what I expected. I expect it to drop off before it finds a nice steady weekly sales amount. WiiFit or MarioKart it isn't but it will be successful in it's own right.

 I think its too late for japanese third parties to fix the problem that 3rd parties had done in the first place. :( The console industry is falling and replaced by the handhelds... *sigh* if only japanese 3rd parties invest more on the Wii before
