Data suggests that the top 30 multiplatform games totaled 10% of all video game software sold in the 2000s! The top fifty single-platform games accounted for nearly 1 out of 8 purchases in the 2000s.
Nintendo wins with a gimmicky console. Who'd have thought?
When all three systems have gimmicks and two of them lose I would hope you revise this idea and search for perhaps a little more thoughtful analysis. I also suggest you look at virtua boy to see that gimmicks alone can't sell. However, I think your brain has sausage fingers and may smash these delicate concepts. URRRGGH GIMMICK
Mario Galaxy and Halo 2 are at exactly the same numbers lol
Need For Speed Underground? How the mighty have fallen, back when it was good...
31 of the top single platform games (6m+) are on Nintendo systems...even though more Playstation software was purchased in the decade.
It is amazing how much Guitar Hero has fallen as well.
Haha, how can they count Wii Sports when it comes with the console? That's like saying the demo disk that came with PS2 was an extremely high selling game.
I agree dude
I think the reasoning included the fact most Xbox 360 consoles come bundled with AT LEAST one game (if not two), and those games didn't even come close to reaching the list.
Why does this kinda hurt my sole as a gamer, to see Wii sports up there, if it was Mario I wouldn't care but Wii sports? 58.40million? Wow
It might hurt your "sole" because you're on your feet so much playing Wii Sports!
I never got why it's ok to pretend to play footbball on a controller but pretending to play tennis with a wiimote bothers people so much.
This news hurts your fish?? Thats odd... Unless you meant SOUL, but why would a games sales hurt a gamer? Seems it would upset fanboys and haters but a "gamer" loves games, not console names or labels.
Some great sales, amazing Wii already passed PS2 for the most top selling games of the 2000's even if you take out Wii sports.
Wow, nintendo sure knows how to sell.
lolololo for ps3 there was only 2 lololololo i wonder why lolololo
