GoldenEye has potential to do well.

I think it has potential to do well, but are we talking worldwide? I mean Bond is popular in the States and Europe so I can see a million easy between the two.

Has the hype

Most games that have at least a little hype behind them sell at least a million.

Too little, too late.

The issue is whether people who would care have moved on. Sales of Zelda and Metroid games on the Wii, have been disappointing on the Wii with every release. Now Activision is going after those who were Nintendo fans from way back on the N64 and still support a Nintendo console. I don't think that person exists any longer.

The time to release this game was 2007-2008. That would have been a nice send up to the fans who were still passionate about Wii.

Now that we've all seen games like Halo, Gears, Call of Duty, Portal, Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead, Crysis, Battlefield: Bad Company and Bioshock on the PC and HD consoles, who is left out there to care enough to pay $50 for GoldenEye on the Wii?

GoldenEye sales

Both COD 4 Reflex and Metroid 3 sold over a million copies on the Wii. GoldenEye can do the same. I don't think it will generate a ton of buzz, but will sell well for a non mario/ sports Wii title.

Wii Games

Don't all Wii games with any kind of "famous" name (Mario, Metroid) sell a million easy? I mean there are almost 70 million of the consoles out there.

Re: Wii Games

Yeah, there are almost 70 million consoles in circulation, but few traditional games actually sell in big numbers.

Even games with the pedigree of Mario, Metroid and Zelda, can only manage to sell a few million on a console with almost 70 million users.

That says that there is a very, very small market there for these types of games. And there is no guarantee that this segment of the Wii market will come out for quality titles. Look at Dead Space: Extraction or The Conduit, or any number of failures on the Wii.

Now look at the numbers Modern Warfare, Medal of Honor and Halo pull in. They do these numbers in almost in their sleep. While anything on the Wii console has to fight tooth and nail to hit the million seller mark.

Meh it will be be between

Meh it will be be between 10K and 100, there's just a good a chance it dose over 110K so I am split.

They might have 70M out there but only half that are "real" gamers who buy regularly.

First week GoldenEye 007 sales numbers

GoldenEye sold 144,000 units the first week of sales. My guess is that it will dip to around 60,000 next week, it will go back up on black Friday to around 100,000 units, then it will drop back down.

Wii games sales are different than 360 or PS3 in that the first week of sales isn't always the best. Modern Warfare Reflex only sold 60,000 units the first week and still cracked a million over time.


Not a bad start for a Wii game

Assuming those VGChartz numbers are correct, 144,000 is more than I thought it would sell in its first week. Can't wait to see what numbers it turns out in the coming weeks.
