November NPD numbers revealed that, yet again, Wii Play was in the top 10 software sales. The title has consistently placed in the top 10, and so far has sold 7.9 units in total.
These stats basicly back up the fact you could sell a pile of 3 year old dog crap as long as it's packaged with a wiimote it'll sell just fine. For years and years and years.
Wii sells loke hot cakes and PS3 struggles to survive.... What the hell is wrong with this world?
Maybe the world is asking what's wrong with you.
no, its the world hates video games...and impulse buys a device that has a thing you wiggle at a tv screen instead... it is mildly humorous as to how well the thing is selling right now...but seriously...this industry will never be taken seriously ever again if the record setting console to beat is a Nintendo Wii...it could go on to top the PS2 at this rate...video games will NEVER be 'cool' again... ah whatever...its very obvious that I simply don't get the Wii...at all...so to each their own...its just I don't like the idea of the industry shifting focus onto Wii like stuff in the future because it became so popular...I hate the Wii because it is a potential catalyst towards a movement that I simply never want to happen...if only Wii like devices are available some day...I won't play video games anymore...
It's a Wii remote and a game for $10 more than the remote by itself. People think they're getting a bargain, when in reality the extra games are barely worth the $10. It sells because of the perceived value.
I agree, but some of the games really aren't that bad. I'm looking at you, Laser Air Hockey, Tanks Wars, and sort-of the Cow Racing one and Pool.
It only sells well because it comes with a free controller.
I think you have it backwards......its selling because it's only $10.
Wii are the champions! =D
Ultimate Face Palm.
I just bought my girl a wii last night because it was $250.00 for the controller with the knunchuck and a game not a bad deal considering the other bundles and prices.
She'll touch your Wii more than her Wii, but I suppose it's mostly the thought that counts.
@Graphics Whore - I see what you're doing. When you say she'll touch his Wii, you don't mean his console. That is some seriously funny stuff. Keep them coming. Seriously though, BX81, I hope you and your girl enjoy it.
The game DOES have two redeeming features...the neon air hockey mini-game, and the awesome Tanks game.
I'll be sure to buy this for my grandmum.
According to some people here. WiiPlay is the BEST GAME EVER MADE
I think that a small number of people on here really think that. That's true for anything, really. Not just games. Movies, music and books are a few examples where the same thing is true. Sales don't indicate quality nor do lack of sales indicate lack of quality.
This is what you call great marketing. Some constructor should take example.
