"NPD just released their accumulated data for the best selling software across all platforms, for the first half of 2010. The best selling game as you will see below, is actually a title that was released in 2009…it being New Super Mario Bros. Wii."
Nintendo is allover the place!! my haitian hommie Reggie is laughin right now. Sweet to see Mass effect 2 in there!
Yep, also GOWIII did great. It's barely half-way into the year and we've already got so many AAAA games.
http://n4g.com/news/570270/... I saw those stats for Americas June sales http://n4g.com/news/570271/... Even more sales here!
http://n4g.com/news/570208/... Probably just as important is the Japanese data.
While you're at it don't forget Europe's statistics on game sales http://n4g.com/news/570200/...
Nintendo just owns everything in the charts
They made a shit move by making the piece of crap known as the Wii
1. New Super Mario Bros. Wii – (Wii) 2. Pokemon SoulSilver Version – (Nintendo DS) 3. Red Dead Redemption – (Xbox 360) 4. God of War III -( PlayStation 3) 5. Wii Fit Plus w/Balance Board – (Wii) 6. Wii Sports Resort w/ Wii Motion Plus – (Wii) 7. Pokemon HeartGold Version – (Nintendo DS) 8. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – (Xbox 360) 9. Just Dance – (Wii) 10. Super Mario Galaxy 2 – (Wii)
I have almost all if those games. Nice!!!
I remember people saying this was Nintendo's last gen and whatnot. On one side, I'm pissed off that they completely ignored their core fanbase (at least, until now), but on the other I'm glad to see them succeed. Gaming would not be the same without Nintendo.
I always have to laugh when someone with a Sony avatar starts talking about Nintendo ignoring their core fanbase but you never hear actually Nintendo fans complaining. Probably because real Nintendo fans already know they released more core franchises for the Wii than either the GC or N64. It is always nice to hear from a supporter of another company though as to how I and millions of others feel.
I've never bashed the Wii, even though I am a PS3 fan. In fact, I'm really excited about this year for the Wii. Nintendo completely amazed everyone at E3 and pulled an incredible line-up out of thin air. All I'm saying is that for the last few years, Nintendo has obviously focused on the casual crowd (just like MS is doing now). I'm not saying their weren't any core game, I'm just saying that there weren't as many as I would have liked. That, however, is the past. Right now, the future looks great for the Wii's core gamers.
Keep selling God of War 3 Long live Kratos
viva la KRATOS....!
My two favorite games this year.
no heavy rain?
And I still don't want a Wii.
It's okay, not everyone is a real gamer, but hey keep making those comments about the Wii and how you don't want one. It's having a real impact on sales of the console obviously. Notice how most people who are gamers here are talking about the games they enjoy, how pathetic does someones life have to be that they have to be focused on something they obviously want nothing to do with? @real killer below, You are a moron. This isnt even a complete list of all software sold. You and the rest of the Sony sheep trying to make that excuse up are complete morons. You cant look at the top 10 and say that it it for software sales. Fact is 360 whether you like it or not has sold 9 games per every 360 sold. Sony is barely able to beat the Wii in attach rates and they bundle almost every major release for half a million in sales. If what you idiotic fanboys were saying were even remotely true, you would be able to provide some proof of this.Sadly you just may be too stupid to even comprehend the point you are trying to make but you completely fail and are an idiot. I dont even support MS and I can see how wrong you clowns are. You're taking the top 10 for 1 month and acting like its backs up all your claims.
"how pathetic does someones life have to be that they have to be focused on something they obviously want nothing to do with?" Reread this quote of yours and now look at how long your comment is. Pathetic indeed.
Because he said he has no interest in a Wii he is not a real gamer? It's odd you make a remark like that when it appears you have so much knowledge of sales and attach rates. I never tried those games (sales and attach rates). How are they?
Attach rates have actually been better for PS3 since 2009, there was a big article about it a couple months ago.
Seferoth75... you again? I thought i dealt with you already... First off, stop calling people names and fanboys, when you sound like one. Obviously multiplats will sell more for the 360. There are more 360s than PS3s. Too many people, like yourself, jump at sales figures, and down peoples' throats for expressing thier opinion... Anyway here is mine... Look at the quality of games on the consoles... which ones have most of the games you like? Which one has more quality? More choice? More value? These are the only questions I need answered. And I am willing listen to views on any other topics, without calling people names... You are the only Moron here. Oh and another thing... America DOES NOT equal the world!
/facepalm at the fanboys in disguise. at least seferoth75 is honest about it (if u go through his comment history) and whom i dont have a problem with. I dont like hypocrites much :\.
So what are you saying turok? That I'm a fanboy in disguise? Nothing is wrong with honestly, just don't call people names and make unfound accusations about people. I have made it clear in my previous posts... I have all 3 consoles. I play the PS3 the most, and the Wii the least. I am not hiding anything, not behind sales, or calling people names or fanboys. Attacking people with different views show who the real hyprocites are.
Nel you know sef is harsh but he's right. A) they are being idiots for thinking they alone can simply make the ps3 sell better with an arguement. Gamers buy games not arguements. I'm sure they will say something about features yet gamers want features in their games not hardware then there is the whole blurry makes better games and last but not least you have the all powerful /s cell CPU where fanboys believe that spud can replace ram. Then you have a bunch of people from Europe talking about American education system lol. B) this gen is effectively over and the ps brand will continue to go down unless Sony can some how get the ps2 buyers to buy their system. I like many others was one yet gamers do not understand that gamers flow 3rd parties the most. Not bluray or features. Sony is treating games like appliance buyers lol. It's ok to talk bad about any system. Just look at the wii. Casuals bought it right 15 million Mario 5 players along with mario kart and brawl says other wise. If xbox is long in the tooth then so is the ps3 and wii. You guys can userstand that art and power are not related. I know you guys love the ps3 yet please understand it can not win with out 3rd party support right now. Their games have gotten better but they have a long way to go to make all gamers have or at least a larger number of gamers. Awards are great but the gaming public does not buy awards and Sony can't get input from the poeple who don't like there games simply because how the fanboys act.
Haven't powered mine (Wii) all of 2010. Guess I'm not a real gamer either according to Seferoth.
That's too bad, because Galaxy 2 is an awesome game.
IDK Reburn I just can't get into Mario any more. I enjoyed Galaxy but not nearly as much as I use to in the past. The last game I really enjoy was Mario Sunshine. Ever since then I am just burned out on Mario. I am getting that way with a lot of franchise titles now. More than likely I will eventually get around to playing MG2. Off Topic: Seferoth seek mental help FAST! I glanced at your disturbing PM's enoungh to know you are serious need of it. Damn some people on this site need to take a breather and find the sun.
I know what you mean, Just for fun, I counted all the mario games that are available on the wii. 46!
Mario tennis is not what people mean when they say "Mario" game. Quit equivocating.
commercially and critically where's Mass Defect 2? it's been out longer and it's multiplatform. did kratos just murder that overrated POS along with bayonetta?
why hate on mass effect 2?thats one of the best wrpgs this year
i play them both and i must admit ME2 is by far a better game but GOW3 does look better
Hahajajahaha by far better hahaha GoW 3 is better than me2.
@mrsanho1 hey man stay away from drugs and play games
your half right commercially yea but not critically
the wii is a monster with the sells.
Not much difference in software department unlike hardware with almost 8 Million ahead for 360, there no single proof that 360 has 8 Million more than PS3 in USA.
Oh for all that is holy. Shut up already.
6 Wii games on the list, 3 DS games, 7 Xbox 360 games, and 5 PS3 games. Only 1 game sold over 2 million, Super Mario Wii.
Yeah exactly. Which points to my point above. Sales of games relates to install base. In Japan the Wii would be number 1 (no surprise there), with the PS3 second. In Europe the 360 would still be ahead, but the PS3 gap would be less... Wii, 360, PS3... Once the install base remains like this, then game sales would follow the same trend... Thats why getting consoles into homes are first and foremost the number one priority for Nintendo, MS, and Sony. Sony has been the worst at this because of the launch Price. Microsoft had a years head start, and nintendo created and attracted a whole new market, plus had the novelty factor... Sony has alot more work to do. The games alone won't push the PS3 into homes. Thats why they need "new" strategies like MOVE. The same for Microsoft and Kinect. In my opinion anyway.
If the games along won't push more system then your console is dead. This is what you said not me. Seriously who is going to buy move when the ps3 user base believes sixaxis is better for playing fps. Your whole fan base was told to hate motion control and they did. They where told that controller was all the motion control you needed lol. When move gets out to the public many ps3 cheerleaders will step away from it. It is no better than motion plus with even more lag and the problems Sony claimed the kinect has happen on their hardware also. This just one side truely believing in marketing too much rather than the glue that holds this industry together game play. Sony's last and biggest flaw is that and expensive electronics. If Sony went 3rd party how would their games sell?
Nice list. Although I am a bit shocked. People still buy MW2?
No More Heroes 2, Red Steel 2, Mario Galaxy 2. I'd definitely recommend those if you decide to fire up your Wii again. Anyways impressive sales all around. Good to see different systems on the board.
Modern Warfare 2 and Mario Wii really are the two crazy sellers left over from last year it seems.
They're tearing it up in japan too, nintendo that is. Good for all consoles though overall.
