Well, we'll see how it ends up after the next week, but the initial run in both UK and Japan isn't looking promising. Then again, I don't know why people would think the game would be a hit.

"But looking at the bigger sales picture, the super-charged super hero game was released August 23, just two days before the UK chart was drawn up"

Oi, don't use common sense.
Next thing you know, people will start look at the sales of Wonderful 101 in Japan and remember that it had less days, only 30K copies printed and a small install base instead of blaming Nintendo and/or the country in question.


same thing was said about pikmin 3

rose wiiu sales to 20k and everyone was screaming that it was only two days of sales and that the week following was going to be over 70k

then when it plummented down to 11k the following week, nintendrones forgot pikmin 3 existing

then why isn't Nintendo making more cod games?
why isn't Nintendo making more fifa games?

There is definitely something to be said about going against the grain/bucking the trend. Nintendo needs to CONFORM and bring out the games that players WANT.


Nintendo isn't getting good third party games because of the fact that the wii u just isn't selling. And companies don't want to take the risk because the wii u is a risky product

It was actually 14th in the singles chart, this is the problem sometimes as it puts titles all together from all formats as one.

Also keep in mind this does not include Digital Sales, it's also a new IP too which is a lot harder to sell without huge advertisements (still not seen a single Wii U add since Just Dance one last year), it also was a busy week for the Wii U itself as both Disney Infinity (Wii U version accounted for about 10% of it's sales.) and Splinter Cell were released on the same day.
