I wonder how well W101 sold...

considering the B2G1 Target deal and the WW Bundle that hit at the same time. I was honestly expecting horrible sales and all the business consequences that go with it, but now there's a genuine chance that it sold decently enough to keep up their faith in funding new IPs. If it did sell, that's some lucky timing on Target's part haha.

It sold REALLY bad in Japan and Europe, and this was Platinums most expensive game to date so...

Don't worry, it is funded by Nintendo one hundred and one percent...

Even though many websites, including VG Chartz are not accurate, they only estimate and speculate and most shops in Europe do not release sale numbers and VG Chartz only count physical copies so yea, it could be selling badly or it could sell like hot cakes, we just don't know.

You are not a core gamer if restricted to handhelds/consoles from one company thus limiting amount of games, further by genre's and graphical style of the game.

Yep, which means that if Bayo2 doesn't sell well I don't think Nintendo will even want to purchase Platinum. I mean, if they are thinking logically they won't.

Yeah, but the NA release has Target's B2G1 deal and the WW Bundle to help out. In PAL and JPN, the physical versions were just dropped it in an ocean with no life vest.

20,000 in USA

20,000 in Europe

10,000 in Japan

Unlike popular belief VGchartz is VERY accurate. The article people quoted them as being "inaccurate" was actually scrutinized and proven to be untrue. They get paid to get there numbers and they do it quite accurately.

Even if you give them the benefit of the doubt, they still don't count digital copies. While NA had a physical sale to help, they other two regions had sales on the eShop.
