LOL at that video. I think the case here is neither sarcasm nor nutjob.

Pandora's Tower will sell less than 100k lifetime in Japan.

As I've said before considering all the CoD hype on the PS3 and 360 it's going to get Wii buyers in there asking for somehting similar and Modern Warfare will have the same brand and be right there. Actually probably the reason World at War sold well on the Wii.

I'm not going to make any bold predictions here but I'm thinking it'll at least be able to do 500,000 on Wii. Would go as high to even say 1.5 million. Huge range of course but we'll just have to see how this Wii holiday season turns out.



400k before it hits the bargain bins.

man

alot of wii owners (who bitch about not getting great games) are getting a great game but are coming up with excuses why they won't get it.


I myself will get it as I liked the controls of WaW bettenr than COD4 on PS3.

but i doubt it will sell more than 2million as all those lame excuses coming out and also because the game is old.



 

 

@Cobretti2: Ironically you just gave an excuse by saying the game is old. A "lame" excuse people are using.

Just because people have different standards and tastes it doesn't mean they are lame or whiners.

Why would you compare an unknown IP to one of the best known current day FPS IPs out there?

madden is another well known IP, youve heard of it I assume?
NPD numbers from a couple of days ago
xbox360 900+k
ps3 600+k
wii 67k



All bow to me the VGChartz current reigning 3DS prediction champion 

 Bet with tbone51: Pokeon X & pokemon Y will not sell more than 8 million in 2013

July 2009 daveJ saidTrue the wii has a large lead now but by 2017 the most likely result will be 1. ps3 2. xbox360 3. wii <-- wii's successor launched in 2011 effectively killing sales of the wii

it is lame, because look at it this way. if it was a old zelda game from gamecube upgraded to wii it would sell millions.

COD4 is great enough for it to e a old game and still sell well.

what I am trying to say is that they always bitch about not getting great 3rd party games, but when they come they never buy them because of X reason.

Nintendo remakes never get this kind of bs. lets face it, alot of Nintendo owners only buy nintendo games and pretent to be interested in 3rd party.

wii 67k <----- WTF!!!!

With multiplatform games as well as (non party/fit games) the wii normally does terrible sales

Madden is a sports game. Entirely different genre. Nintendo hasn't been known to have a traditional sports game base since the original NES.

That's like saying that McDonald's doesn't do well in towns full of vegetarians.

Why don't you just take the example of COD: WaW like I suggested, since it's linked to the IP and its the same genre? It's relevant and a better sample for the discussion at hand.

 

@Garnett - I play Cod: Waw on the wii regulrarly, the online experience is great. I can't see why Treyarch would do any less with the CoD 4 online.

150-200K first week, maybe 2 Mill lifetime. After looking at conduit collapse at the sales charts without any marketing, COD MW should do better with the marketing muscle of BlizzActive.



Heeeeyyyy!!!! <Snap>
