Forums - Gaming Discussion - Wii Sports Resort (Wii Sports 2) Will it sell???

For those wondering how much it will be, I've preordered it and it was (is) £39.14 from Game.co.uk. This is about $60 ish but then we do pay rip-off prices here in the UK for some games

I'll prob be able to find it cheaper neearer the time but I don't want to risk not getting this game on launch day.

I haven't seen Wii motion plus available to pre-order on its own.

It will sell exeedingly well...Id say 30-50% attache rate.



I don't think Wii Sports has a loyal fan base the way other Nintendo series' have. I doubt it will sell anywhere near what Wii Play is selling, as the Wii Motion Plus won't really be seen as a necessary upgrade. I think we'll be looking at similar sales to Brain Training 2.

 



It will sell well, i'd say 10million at least.

I really think you are totally missing the point. Yes there would be a good demand for a well done Wii Sport sequel as many people have had, and continue to have a lot of fun with it. But I agree it would, of itself, not be unlimited. But the point here isn't the game but the hardware.

The game may be big but the hardware is a huge advance. To me real time , one to one is as big an advance over the present Wiimote is the Wiimote was over the GC.

To turn a door knob by reaching out and turning it. A light saber dual that feels and acts like the real thing. Golf where a failure to keep your wrist straight results in a hook or slice. An unbelievable response and accuracy in a FPS. The list goes on,

Yes, a very very necessary upgrade. And quite a bit more.

I have no doubt that it will sell, especially if nintendo promotes it half as much as they promoted wii music.

Although my question is how the package it. I believe sales will be lower if Ninty sells the wii-motion plus separately at first. The wii sports crowd will pick it up no matter what but the core will only pick it up when a core game uses it (conduit, RS2, the inevitable star wars game).

However if Nintendo only lets it be packaged with the game at first, then it might force some of the core to pick it up...but Ninty would have to package it with 2 wii motion-plus-es.

If I was nintendo i would package the game with 2 motion pluses for $50 (or more) and not allow it to be sold separately until several months later...and blame it on not having enough supply ;)

It wouldn't surprise me since the balance board is still bundled...and it is still supply constrained.



Yeah, of course it will sell millions. Good for wii, another multimillion selling minigame collection.

How does WM+ improve fps-games? Or how does a "light sabed duel" feel like the real thing when you there is no resistance when you hit something? :)

I agree that this is necessary, since the original motion controls are a bad joke.

 



Resort will be similar to WiiFit - just cheaper, and should sell even better:
- hardcores will buy it immediately for M+
- casuals will buy it, as a sequel for Wii Sports
- newbies will buy it, for the "new" games (sword fighting, etc) and based on the massive advertising campaign it launches with.

I see no reason for Ninty to bundle, OR build M+ into Wiimotes. Firstly, with 50m Wiis out there - there would be at LEAST 100m Wiimotes - without M+. So they have to cater to these units first.

Secondly - when Resort launches, 99.9% of Wii games will ONLY require the Wiimote. Very, very few will *ever* require M+ - probably 1-2% of games.

Thirdly - its easy money for Ninty, and a nice upgrade path for consumers.

Fourthly - it gives them an easy route for the "Wii II" controller (all these bits integrated) - or even a new Wiimote if they like.

...

I'm sure I have now spent an UNGODLY amount of money on my "Wii collection" - BUT I didn't have to spend it all at once. Gradual upgrading makes consumers happy.

Again - my only question is the price points - and if I was Ninty, I would price it similar to WiiPlay/Wiimote (except cheaper). Force people to buy multiple copies of Resort, if they want multiple M+'s (for a while at least).

(its almost like Animal Crossing + WiiSpeak - except the WiiSpeak is not *required* to play Animal Crossing - M+ will be required).
