Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Is High Voltage Software Nintendo's spiritual Rare?

Let's wait and see..They are a good Wiiware supporter for now and a very promising Wii developer. But the Conduit success will make them or break them. They have to sell at least half a mill.

Double post.



Leatherhat on July 6th, 2012 3pm. Vita sales:"3 mil for COD 2 mil for AC. Maybe more. "  thehusbo on July 6th, 2012 5pm. Vita sales:"5 mil for COD 2.2 mil for AC."

Half a million is guaranteed.

There is no way it will be outsold by Quantum of Solace, no matter the 007 brandname. COD3 sold a mil, before the COD series took the FPS genre by storm.
World at War recently sold 1m.

If No More Heroes could sell 400k with no advertising, Bully could sell 400k w/o advertising, Madworld could sell 200k in 10 weeks, it has the odds in its favor. Plus, with Sega behind TC with marketing/advertising, there is no way. Even Haze broke 600k.

High Voltage or rather Sega should advertise their games heavy to obtain a good result of sales. The unknowing Wii crowd is ready to buy, play and love their games '

Imo HVS is the most hard working 3rd party now, i hope their games come out great as everyone expected. :)

Ditto, I was the kind that never knew about The Conduit and to go even further not caring about, but in recent months HVS made me rethink my views about them and this game. I'm not sure they will be the next best 3rd-party for Nintendo, but future looks very bright for them!

Pray to God that this game don't bomb!

HVS made some 'movie like' trailers and the  conduit is rated 'mainstream' teen. Sega should have an easy marketing job. Pushing it's sales to a minimun of 500k on a installbase of 50 million can hardly fail. That's 0.5/50. I expect at least a million WW sales.    



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

I see HVS as a superb dev so far with a lot of foresight. Only thing is if they actually deliver on their promises. If Conduit sucks I can guarantee HVS will die off to nothingness. If Conduit rocks I can guarantee that I will buy Gladiator AD and Grinder day one.

Here's hoping that they are good and more devs follow HVS' lead.



HVS release information about their under construction games now because they want to keep up the hype to increase TC sales, risky strategy indeed.Because they give more promising words to gamers, and they have to meet those expectation.

I don't want to think what will happen if they can't do it...

Yeah, their two new games got me REALLY excited about HVS. I'm even more willing to buy The Conduit now (more than totally & completely willing, lol). I think it was a great strategy. We see what kind of work they're doing so it raises the hype and gets people to buy their games.

Add me for Pokemon, New Leaf, and Fire Emblem, Mario Kart 8.

Rare stopped being really a must have software developer once concker BFD came out. Their ideas dried up and they never really took the incentive to really go out and take control. Let's see what HVS does, if it's going to put the effort into the Wii as they keep promising then maybe we have a new big guy on the block.

But until then, Retro Studios all the way baby.
