I'm surprised there is only 1 Zelda game on the list and Metroid didn't even make it

Tewi-Inaba1256d ago

Contrary to popular belief LoZ isn't actually THAT huge in japan, it is everywhere else though.
atleast not compared to mario, and these days Animal Crossing, hell AC is 4th on 3DS list and it's only out on Japan.

insomnium21256d ago

Shouldn't Nintendo be making billions of dollars of profit with success like this? I haven't been following the finances of Nintendo but one would think that on a monetary level Nintendo is on a whole new level compared to Sony and MS.

deafdani1256d ago

Metroid isn't really a system seller. None of the Metroid games have ever sold that well, despite their popularity in the western audience.

CouldHaveYelledUiiW1255d ago (Edited 1255d ago )

Yeah,
Samus games rarely sell big-

I think this is why they keep searching for ways to change-up the formula.

Everyone (critics and fans) knows that Samus has potential and is beloved by many but Nintendo just hasn't found a way to translate that love into Mulit-Million sells.

RETRO might be working on that right now, if not I hope that they consider working a Collaboration with a company that has done a great FPS.

I know this is not exactly what we all want, since Prime was a FPA, but I think one game with a stronger FPS focus wouldn't be horrible for the franchise.

This way more success could spin-off more games 2D and 3D (Primes and OM's).

For Samus' 1st HD, I think they need to go more "cORE" friendly with a Nintendo Twist of Course.

Damn. That's some serious success.

Williaint1256d ago (Edited 1256d ago )

I'm surprised by the numbers that 'Brawl' sold.
I'd thought it was more!

eagle211256d ago

Super Mario 64 DS....WOW!!!!!!!!!! Sold just as much as N64 version!!!!

millzy1021256d ago (Edited 1256d ago )

it was probably the same people who brought them, myself included. just goes to show nintendo is not to be messed with and this is the reason why they won't go 3rd party. no need with numbers other companies could dream of.

Jek_Porkins1256d ago

Wow, those are impressive numbers.

Thatguy-3101256d ago

Wasn't nintendo land and wii sports bundled with the consoles itself? Wii sports is the highest because that was bundled with the with and that thing sold like crazy so the game did too.

3-4-51256d ago

True, but Wii Sports Resort selling 30 million copies shows just how much people actually did like the first game.

Some of those were bundled as well, but a decent amount are single sales.

--Onilink--1256d ago

Not in japan. There it was sold at retail. And Nintendoland is obly sold with the premiuns and i think its not bundled at all in japan like wii sports

BeZdaBest1256d ago

this is why you cant count nintendo out never..... the games still sell like crack...

nintendoomed???? lol i beg a differ...

izumo_lee1255d ago

There is no doubting Nintendo 1st party games but it is kinda disappointing that there are barely any 3rd party games on that list.

34million mariokart wii sales, wiifit 20million,and people say these games WON'T move systems?

Dj7FairyTail1255d ago

wait til Mario Kart Wii U comes this holiday that will move 5 million system in one month lol

thezeldadoth1256d ago (Edited 1256d ago )

This is what people here just can't grasp. Nintendo games are cheaper to make, and sell way more than any other franchise from any other system. People keep claiming doom for Nintendo, when they are better off than any other system. The Wii, DS, and 3DS are outselling competition, and the games are selling huge amounts.

Even if WiiU sells "poorly" Nintendo could afford low console sales for multiple generations. The WiiU isn't even doing terribly, just about the same as the other consoles when they came out.

Moncole1256d ago

And people say Nintendo is doomed.

zalanis1256d ago

I was just about.to say the same thing. Mario kart wii sells 34 mill but costs a fraction of what it cost sony to make the ever popular granturismo. Ppl wont understand why nintendo is succesful while all over the net we keep hearing of companies either closing down or revising their studios to turn a prophet (eg. SquareEnix stating tomb raider at 3 million+ isnt considered succesfull
