Nintendo: Nintendo Land hasn't done as well as Wii Sports

Shocker of the century.

What's worse is that Nintendo obviously knows Nintendo Land isn't recapturing the Wii Sports crowd, and yet they insist on devoting their time on vanity projects like Mario 3D World and Wind Waker HD.

Isn't that a little overly cynical, at least in regards to Wind Waker HD? I thought it was basically confirmed that WWHD was a hold-over game that was using the newer 3D Zelda's assets.

As for 3D World, I honestly hope it's a hold-over game as well. I want the next really big, innovative 3D Mario game. Not another offline multiplayer game that borrows a concept from an older (albeit awesome) portable game.

Can any game even come close to that in terms of sales and consoles sold because of it. I think not.

Well Wii sports was packaged into the console. So technically it is not game sales. Just think if the PS2 had a game packaged in? It would be the "Most Sold" of all time.

It wasn't packaged with every console in every region though.

Apparently, there's a need to exteriorize the feeling. Good for them they got it out of their system, maybe they'll put out a good game now.

that's cause it is no wii sports, and Nintendo messed up trying to go that route again.
