W101 sales aren't as bad as they seem

First of all only Media Create said 5000. Famitsu said 6,663, which is pretty decent for a niche title like W101.

Second of all, they don't include digital sales at all!

It never ceases to amaze me how people spread these bogus numbers around like they mean something.

Sub 10,000 sales are terrible no matter how you spin it. Basically what you're saying is that Nintendo failed to sell 4/5ths of their initial shipment.

Selling 1/5 of their initial shipment in the first week is pretty damn good.

In Japan you get a huge drop off after the first week, though for W101 it was only one day and they got 5k.

I'm still absolutely shocked how The Wonderful 101 only sold 6,663 copies during launch, I felt like this was the type of game that would really go well with everyone, especially in Japan since it's made by Platinum Games. It should have easily sold more than that.

Obviously this is just launch and the sales will get better, i'm still hopeful in the end the game will be a success. It's an amazing game, and it deserves better.

I also think it will be a bigger hit in NA, since it's still a really hyped game.

Its almost as if there wasn't a special offer on digital download.

Oh wait.
