Pikachupwnage commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

It's absurd to expect Nintendo to market a late port of this sort of game. Its always the third parties/publishers job to advertise their game unless Nintendo is the one publishing it.

Nintendo should've shown it in a direct though but if he wanted them to find TV ads...lol.

Pikachupwnage commented on Watch_Dogs Delayed Again on Wii U, Will Arrive...:

How can third parties possibly expect any sort of success if virtually every game gets screwed over somehow on Wii U? Whether its missing features like call of duty(clans DLC etc.) releasing a far superior package on other systems(mass effect 3...and they announced mass effect trilogy for PS360 before this even hit shelves) simply doing a bad job porting(various ports/multiplats) leave out online(sniper V2) or release it well after other versions(Need for speed) delay it(Rayman Legends) yearly releases lacking some of the updates on other versions(madden)or other things...it doesn't exactly give consumers much confidence. Especially when companies like EA pledge "Unprecedented" support and deliver lackluster launch ports and backpedal.

Pikachupwnage commented on Sonic Lost World Sales Reached 640,000 in 2013:

Considering...

1. Mediocre critical reception
2. Sonic has a history of very low sales in Japan at least in modern times
3. Sonic games have good legs(hehehe) so it should rack up quite a few more before things are said and done especially if Sega uses sales to push digital copies when it starts running out of gas.

These are fine numbers. Not a mind blowing success but definitely not a flop either.

3U sold over 224K copies at retial alone. Digtal sales were good as well as it spent a bit of time in top 20 charts after release and its been on sale several times and always rockets back into the charts and high up in them whenever.

Wii U is 93K.

It had a farily strong Internet marketing campaign with adds, and strong encouragement of lets plays but a good TV ad could do wonders. I hope Capcom and Nintendo Push 4U HARD!

Pikachupwnage commented on Feature: Nintendo Games Our Readers Would Love...:

My Wishlist for new games this year that aren't extremely far fetched(I think Metroid is coming but it won't be this year. Same with Zelda)

3DS

Advance wars
Majoras Mask 3D
Tomodachi collection (localization)
Fossil fighters(Localization)
Warioware(Digital)
New original Gamefreak game(Digital)
Monolith Soft's unannounced 3DS game.

Combined with Kirby, Smash, Chibi-Robo, Mario Golf and Yoshi that are already confirmed this would be a solid year

Wii U

Super Mario Sunshine HD
Pokken Fighters
Miyamoto's New IP
Star Fox
Paper Mario

With Smash, Hyrule Warriors DK, Mario kart, and possibly X, Yoshi, and SMT X FE this would be a rock solid year.

Just going to point out this does not include digital sales. Monster hunter 4 has sold more then 400K copies digitally.

4 was at 2.8 million by September 31st. As of then using media create charts we can see it had sold just over 2.4 million by then. Thus it sold about 400K digital copies to be able to sell that number. According to this wedensday's media create(this is a copy pasta from a post I made on the 21st if November so you are going to have to go back several weeks for this actually) it has sold just above 2.93 million copies. Thus adding in digital sales we get a figure of about 3.33 million copies plus whatever amount of digital copies have been sold since.

Also as a sidenote monster hunter 4 is looking likely to become the best selling monster hunter ever. Currently it is at over 3.33 million compared to freedom 3 at 4.8 million. With the solid legs it has(and a holiday season to give it a boost in japan) as well as an upcoming Korean release and a very likely US/European release given the success of 3U...it could very likely surpass freedom 3.
