How big will Super Smash Bros. Brawl be?

With expectation at a fever pitch it will definitely launch at number one in America and Europe. But will it be one of the biggest games of 2008? No, and the reasons are obvious.

"Basically Super Smash Bros, Brawl (SSBB) and SMG are gamer’s games. They are mainly bought by people for whom gaming is a hobby. And whilst many Wii owners are gamers, most of them aren’t. Most Wii owners are casual game players, and whilst some of these may well be interested in SSBB, most won’t be."

Wrong Japan loves these things and most Wii owners are now " moms and dads" but how many people said : the only reason im getting a Wii is for smash brawl.....

this guy is so wrong!! the only reason this game could sell slower then expected is because Nintendo cant get their Wii's ready.

his logic fails

I think he makes a valid point. Smash Bros will sell very well, but look at highly awaited titles like No More Heroes, which flopped in Japan and did so so in the US. The Wii really is a casual system. Games aren't selling nearly as fast as the system is, and that's where the trouble lies.

and i have a wii been playing games since i was a kid now i am 33 years old sorry but a lot of my friends that are hardcore gamers have a wii too. ps realy looking forward to SSBB

OK so his logic is that SSBB is a gamer's game but the Wii is for casual gamers...he doesn't think a gamer will buy a Wii for this game? He acts like no more Wiis will be in production ever again and the only people that have one are strictly casual gamers. One of the appealing things about the game is that it's easy to pick up and play in the first place. It's not Street Fighter so you don't need to make half and full circles or charge moves to pull of a special move, yet there's so many ways to play it. I mean...I can go on forever about how wrong this guy is, but basically the game will be pretty big all around in 2008. It's not targeted for a specific group...other than Little Big Planet and SSBB, the most anticipated games in 2008 are mostly hardcore

Sorry Bruce...gotta disagree with you

Thing IS a system seller. Did he not see the pics of the 500+ people on every line in Japan buying Wiis with Gamecube controllers? I repeat, with "GAMECUBE CONTROLLERS". SSBB is not only selling Wii systems, it is also selling GAMECUBE CONTROLLERS!

Article = Epic Fail

Disagree as much as you want.
