Have you played Zack and Wiki: Quest for BarBaros' Treasure on the Wii? If the sales numbers are a hint, the chances are you haven't. This is a shame, since the game is solid, and not playing this game is going to wind up hurting the Wii library. In an industry as fast paced as video games, a title has approximately two weeks to prove itself and keep the retailer profitable. Already, Zack and Wiki has been removed from many retailer shelves.
The point is this. Third parties are going to stop creating full fledged adventures if we don't go out and buy them. Capcom are more than deserving of our money with Zack and Wiki...
According to NPD's last sales data, Zack & Wiki sold fewer than 35,000 units, as of the end of November 2007. (See the first Alternative Source.)
Zack & Wiki released in North America on October 23, 2007.
