Take Two sales dominated by PS3 and Xbox 360, Wii crashes

It comes as a bit of a surprise that one of the groups with some of the most popular titles – Take-Two’s - only managed a dismal 1% of their revenue from Wii titles, especially when you look at how many Wii console unit get sold. Take Two released their third financial results which show that the quarter’s sale were dominated by the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 which combined for 93% of the publisher’s revenues.

when the games they have put out on the Wii are such stellar offerings like New Carnival Games, Nickelodeon Fit (seriously?!?), Sid Meier's Pirates and NBA 2K11.

Given the quality of most of those titles, I am surprised that they even managed 1%!

Dead Space on Wii = Flop
Red Steel on Wii = Flop
Call of Duty on Wii = Flop

Wii owners dosent care about action or shooter/blood games.
If they would care,they would already bought Xbox 360 and/or PS3

Wii sell good = Mario, Zelda,Mario, Zelda, music, Mario and SPORT and Wii fit

Dead Space Extraction on Wii? Was a joke.They are giving it away now. Now Dead SPac on PS3? That was a complete bomb with no excuse for it.Same with 3D dot heroes, Modnation, Bioshock, Borderlands, Dragon Age, Demon Souls, and the list goes on and on.

Oh and unlike you I actually know the sales numbers for those games and not a single one reached a million on the PS3. While COD and Red Steel outsold most of them by a large number.
Red Steel? Sold over a million
COD? Everyone is a million seller again
Your knowledge of gaming = 0

LOL the sorriest trolls are the one that just make BS up like you.

"Red Steel? Sold over a million"
But sucked.
And Red Steel 2 was decent and barely reached 300,000.

"COD? Everyone is a million seller again"
One of the most popular franchises of the generation sold a little more than a million on the system with the biggest userbase??
Impressive! /s

Yeah the first one did suck and people left the second alone.Go figure.... Install base does not make a game successful sales do. Fact COD on Wii has been a mixed bag of late ports or crappy late ports. However 1 million in sales is a success for any game. Which is why I pointed out he was wrong. The BS you posted really has no merit.
But I do love how you disagree with facts and try to continue to spin things when you know you cant. Oh and jsut ignore all the PS3 flops and focus on games that outsold the games I mentioned. Your comments fails like I am sure you do at life and comprehension.

"But I do love how you disagree with facts"
Such as.....?

"Oh and jsut ignore all the PS3 flops and focus on games that outsold the games I mentioned"
Oh please, for every flop on the PS3, you could easily list 10 from the Wii.
(And for every great game on the Wii, you could list 10 on the PS3)
Besides, my comment only focused on two of the games you listed, you just over-reacted.

"Your comments fails like I am sure you do at life and comprehension"
Someone is upset...
