the Super Mario Bros. series has brought us some of the highest selling games of all time, with the true SMB2 that was never released outside of Japan being the lowest selling non-remake to date (2.5 million sales according to its Wikipedia page, not listed on the linked page above)

Wii U launched with one, and yet.....

Don't 3D Marios sell better than 2D Marios?

I remember hearing that somewhere, but it could be utter BS.

But that's exactly the problem. Wii U launched with one of its flagship titles and is now almost in a death spiral because no one cared enough to buy it.

Holy crap, your so wrong about what you said its not even funny...

N64 > GCN > SNES > NES > Wii U > Wii and GBA > GBC > 3DS > GB > DS.

Pokemon wise... 3 > 1 > 2 > 4 > 5.

It's the other way around. The 2D games sell around 3 times better than the 3D ones.

Oh, OK. That makes more sense.

Still, I think Tc is forgetting how both the 3DS and the Vita were in death spirals before a price cut and more games came.
