What about digital sales???? I'm sure companies are making extra money that way. I bought 9 games digitally.

ITT: Third party games that are already out on other systems should be selling in droves on the WiiU, implying that people don't own any system other than the WiiU.

Still less than 10%. This does not bode well.


Are you stupid or something?


No u.

You take individual numbers not a cumulative total.

You kids seem to be unable to understand something


5-9% attach rate for those is GOOD, because those consoles have like what, an 80 MILLION INSTALL BASE? 5% of 80 mil is 4 million, thats great sales for a publisher!


Wii U only has an install base of a meager 1.8 million. So yes, 10% attach rate for 1.8 million is ****ing pitiful. Thats hardly any games sold and developers need to break several million sold usually to even break even or even justify bringing more games to the console at all.


Pay careful attention to this launch and the 3rd party software sales, fanfriends. Because these weak numbers just ensured that damn near all 3rd party devs wont touch this thing with a ten foot pole. Its the Wii all over again, nobodys buying remotely enough of the 3rd party titles, and 3rd party devs and publishers just do not waste time and money supporting a platform where 3rd party games do not sell well at all.


Enjoy your paperweight, enjoy the slow trickle of Nintendo made titles. Its the wii all over again. Very sad.


QFT


Quoted for trolling? Yeah, it was.

The reason attach rates are done as a percentage of the install base is because everyone knows nobody is going to make a game everyone buys.

There are a few games you are missing but they are smaller and probably sold fewer. The main one though is Zombi U. That is a 3rd party and probably sold a ton.

.. and yet 3rd party games barely sold 50k, am i getting this right?


Well what do you expect when most of the 3rd Party games out are ports? If people already have PS3/360 for something, they're not going to need the WiiU version, and most of the people who buy Nintendo consoles aren't in it for those big third party titles like CoD, Assassin's Creed, etc.

that might be true for ports, but what about scribblenauts and zombiU?
