GoldenEye's Return Sells Twice As Well As HD Bond Outings

Posted by James Newton

Still only debuts at number 13

It's not very often a Nintendo-exclusive title outsells a similar game on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but the GoldenEye name clearly still carries appeal for UK gamers as the game comprehensively outsold HD 007 outing James Bond 007: Blood Stone.

Although the Wii and DS game landed outside the UK Top Ten at number 13, it sold around twice the number of copies as Blood Stone, which is also available on DS. Contacting several retailers revealed GoldenEye is out of stock in many locations.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii enjoyed a healthy spurt in sales, no doubt helped by the excitement surrounding the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., a strong advertising campaign and the recently-released red Nintendo Wii console. Professor Layton and the Lost Future kept up its strong performance too, gaining ground to find number 5.

You don't get solid release figures for games in the UK or US - over here, GfK ChartTrack is really strict on numbers, just like NPD now.

Awesome, it's getting good reviews all around, so it's no wonder it beat out the PS3/360 007 games.

I never have a N64, so I never played GoldenEye. But I love this game. Too bad that they changed too much storywise. I would have loved to have Brosnan as Bond and our Dutch pride Famke Janssen as Xena Onatop. O well, still a great game.
