Lol? Games aren't movies. They make most of their money in the first month or two and severely peter off after that. Nitch games for a nitch system.


Except they are similar. They do tend to continue to sell over time.


Wrong. Video games Peter out quickly. Used game sales do nothing for publishers or devs.

Also as someone pointed out in another board these games do not include digital sales so they possibly sold more.

Well yeah that ones also true though I don't think it'll be that much. Still over time the sales of each game can pick up. Like the above poster from your post said, that Mario game didn't get 25+ million copies sold in one day. Because some games can still sell new copies (More so for gamers that are iffy about them or newly sale items)

so where are all those people who said those games would have massive sales and would push the system? Seems like they've all gone into hiding now.

The possibility for outliers exist. I was speaking in general terms. You brought up a Mario game and as we all know that's all Nintendo people buy. Of course those results are going to be skewed against the nodus try as a whole. I just didn't think it was necessary to point out something so obvious. You did apparently.

not shocked at nfs 10,000 were the last number of people that didnt buy it when it was out awhile ago on other systems.


I've been looking on different retailers but haven't found any copies of NFS. I thought it was doing good ... I feel bad because this really good port is not being supported

See? I'll say it again "a LEGO game!"




Only here people, Wii U board, check it out.


Yeah and guess what? It could still sell a system. In fact a lot of games could sell a system. The question being though is how many systems certain games can sell but it's possible,


You sir, are desperate. I'm starting to feel bad for you, really, ignore my laughter...


Youre the desperate one. Constantly on the WIi U board instead of your fav system board.

SAD

constantly on gamefaqs arguing about plastic instead of GAMING

You.. just described yourself. Seems like a cry for help. Are you... Sad?

NFS numbers sound fake. It's not really even possible to release a game that sells that badly, especially not from a popular series like NFS.

Also the quote is actually on page 27 and has no source.

I'm sorry but no not on wiiU, Nintendo has the worst DD service and their console doesn't even come with a harddrive that can fit lego city... sure it probably sold more but the margin of error for these numbers is probably more then how much they sold digitally.
