Paper Mario: Sticker Star outsells PM64 and TTYD in Japan - in one month.

#1r_m_8_8Posted 1/9/2013 9:26:07 AM
[System] Game {Release date} - Week 4 sales / Total sales.

[N64] Paper Mario (Nintendo) {2000.08.11} - 118.322 / 425.609
[GCN] Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (Nintendo) {2004.07.22} - 137.750 / 398.218
[Wii] Super Paper Mario (Nintendo) {2007.04.19} - 156.055 / 505.491
[3DS] Paper Mario: Sticker Star (Nintendo) {2012.12.06} - 130.009 / 451.538

With a very strong momentum right now, it's bound to become the best selling Paper Mario game ever. Now, I summon the delicious tears of the vocal minority that can't stand non-64-TTYD Paper Mario for my own pleasure.

Internet.
Where people feel pleasure in making others angry or sad with the protection of their avatars/nicknames.

Just when I thought you couldn't possibly become any dumber.
You go and do something like that.

It's pleasurable because SMP and SS haters are insanely annoying. The 15 of them.

As someone who was disappointed with Sticker Star, I hope they don't look at the sales and think "People want this! Let's do more of it!"

Not that I can blame them, they obviously have to turn a profit...but I think any Mario game on the 3DS sells well regardless of what it's about.

Well, I'm sure more people in Japan own 3DSes than those who own[ed] N64s and Gamecubes.

It's about to pass Super Paper Mario numbers. Weak argument.

That's exactly what they'll do. Sales is the only way companies have of knowing what resonates with their fanbase. Shame you didn't enjoy Sticker Star, but apparently a ton of people are enjoying it. It saw a 16% increase on week four, competing against two 2D Mario games and Animal Crossing. People definitely like it.

but I think any Mario game on the 3DS sells well regardless of what it's about.

And yet Tennis Open dropped like a rock.

How disappointing. The Metroid: Other M of Paper Mario actually sold some in the land where it's most important to.

Hopefully, to me, most of these sales are like Other M itself, sold on the name alone, but mostly everyone had a horrible taste in their mouths.

The game is getting increasing numbers week after week. No Other M case here.

so you're basically admitting this is a troll topic.

How is this a troll topic? We're discussing the success of Paper Mario: Sticker Star. Posting numbers is trolling now? I remember that from other board, not this one.
