TMC: Mickey's latest adventure fails to ignite the UK charts this week.
That's a sad mouse :(
Let's see...it's a third party game on the Wii. Surprised? 12
Good, maybe now they will port to a real console/PC to make up in lost sales.
Have the PS3 Move-version on my desk by the end of 2011. Thanks.
The picture is killing me! hahahaha PS. Sad news
This is a Warren Spector game. I think the Wii crowd isn't big into games like this. It's really not being appreciated for the mastery that it is. There is a few gameplay issue but the story and world is just as amazing as any other great role playing adventure out there.
so your saying the wii crowd isn't big into a game like this? A MICKEY MOUSE GAME? the guy behind the game is irrelevant if you can't sell mickey mouse on the wii then you just can't sell mickey mouse at all i seriously LOL at the people who seriously believe this would have done any better on the 360/ps3
Well you can't look at like that. This isn't just a Mickey game. It's not a casual game. It is a really deep adventure game filled with 100 years of Disney culture. Warren said himself every streetlight, trashcan, brick, blade of grass comes from somewhere in the Disney universe. Wii crowd is too casual. Kids under twenty won't reconize 75% of whats in this game. Maybe more. This is another deep Disney themed game. Like Kingdom Hearts. You really think kids understand KH? Just cause its Disney doesn't make it a kids game. I think the attraction to the Wii is the waggle itself. So hopefully it gets a Move update and gets intot he hands of adults who love Deus Ex or System Shock, and are old enough and mature enough to understand and appreciate the lost treasures of Disney that warren poured into this game.
Hey, NecrumSlavery, you also ought to think a game like this wouldn't find a big of an audience on the HD consoles. If anything, I think this is comparable to Brutal Legend when it released. Marvelous games that, sadly, aimed at a core base that isn't big on sales. As you said, this is a game that has a hunred years worth of Disney culture. It's aimed at those adults who loved cartoons back in the day (And heck, still do), but the adventure itself is also something a kid can pick up and enjoy. The game doesn't has grunty men, big guns, nor tons of blood. Honestly, as I see it, it wouldn't fare any better on the PS3/360.
@CrazyForGames Well, if it was on PS3 i would have bought it...
I would have my cash in hand ready to hand over if this title was on the PS3 or 360.. Just saying
Look at toy story 3 yeah its a game attached to a big movie release but that normally is a big no no to core gamers but a good few bought it. And that was because it was a multiplatform title.
I would of bought it as well if it was on PS3, but alas it was not to be.
The "it would sell better if it was on ps3/360" is too often loosely used and abused . But in this case , who knows ? Stuff like Toy story and kingdom hearts dont seems to have trouble selling when multiplaforms , or when declining a game on each console .
Does anybody EXPECT to see core title sell here? Nintendo made the big mistake by alienating the major HARDCORE Nintendo fans by: 1. Not upgrading their hardware. 2. Providing more focus to the casuals. They've got the hardware sales and they've definitely brought to the casuals a whole new meaning of "gaming". But even with 80+ million consoles worldwide, do you think the majority of casuals are "game" enough to play CORE titles? -End of Line
This isn't a core title. Warren Spector hasn't made a "core" title, he's made a Mickey Mouse game, this is accessible to all comers. Oh, and I reckon this is going to be a big seller. I'm in UK, this game was released only before the charts, they have not yet ramped up the advertising. This will sell to the casual audience, it will sell to kids, it will sell as a gift item. You need big advertising to get that across, that has not happened yet.
@Neckbear+CrazyForGames I would have bought it for the PS3 with Move support. But since it's on the Wii, I am less inclined to as it's not in at least 720p and hence not worth the $50. Maybe when it's closer to $20.
So resolution defines wich games you buy? ...Seriously? It's not worth 50$ 'cause it's not 720p? Jesus christ. I'll get the game tomorrow, when it releases, as I've already pre-ordered it. Honestly, I could give two shits about the resolution, I'm all in for (what it seems) an awesome game.
Wow that makes you sound really stupid. If you have a wii then why not just get this game for it?
Do you own a Wii? Because if you do you must know it's not an HD system which means you must not own any games for it if you go on resolution alone. Again I have to ask why even have a Wii then? *looks at name... Ooooh
That sucks, probably would have done better if it was released on 360 and PS3 and wasnt toned down like originally planed.
was digging the whole dark theme they were goin for, until they buttered it up for kids again.
Well there has been no ads in the UK. Its sad because all Nintendo is advertising are games that have been out for ages like Mario Kart and SMBW. They need to support 3rd parties more.
Never gonna happen as they dont care about 3rd partys.
Disney is big and experienced enough to promote on their own . Definitively their fault
Release the Butterflies.
... I bet the pirates out there are enjoying it though.
It's very rare for a 3rd party game to have good sales on the Wii. They should have made it for X360/PS3. Personally i think it's quite stupid for a software company to invest at this moment on a 3rd party Wii game.
lol didnt mario already do the spraying thing lol
sad mickey is sad
expect a move port then, it will happen mark my words
I wouldn't mind that. If not, I'll just get it for Wii eventually.
kinda doubt it nintendo is gonna coil around this game knowing the demand there was for it to be either on ps or xbox or both as well. but now that the game is done they can finally work on kingdom hearts 3 for ps3 exclusive
Unfortunately i don't have a Wii but If they brought it to PS3 I would buy it, I've loved all Warren Spector games, from system shock,thief,wing commander,ultima and of course deus ex. This game looks like it could end up being a cult classic.
Epic Fail LOL really though Wii is dying a slow death.
I've played the game and it really isn't a game to brag about. The platforming is clunky, lack of voice work, odd cut-scenes, and bland levels don't make a good game.
A port for 360 and PS3 confirmed by sad mickey.
it isnt even being advertised. third part developers seem to think wii owners possess psychic abilities
it need some time, don't judge it by first weeks..
yes yes because all games start at the bottom then make it in the top 10
Yes, like Kirby's Epic Yarn. Maybe we need to wait some more..
This is out? Eh. I'll wait for the inevitable PS3 version.
making a comment about this a little while ago... Going to the Move for sure. It's just like the Wii version and it is simple to replace the controls for. Kinect might take a little time to get the controls just right to match the hardware. Everyone wins. #7 67d ago by Chromer | View comment Ah there we go. :)
put this on move and it will sell more imo. especially when not much move exclusive triple A title around yet
completely OBVIOUS!!!!! wii games don't sell!!! graphics are CRAP "o it's cheaper to make on the wii so let's just do that" they forgot about the part where "NOBODY BUYS CRAP WII GAMES" i bet toy story mania outsells this 5 to 1
bring it to ps3/pc/360....gamers will buy it
See you missed the point. Gamers would buy it regardless. Fanboys care about the console it is on. Pretty sure it will go on to sale more than Modnation, 3D dot heroes and many other playstation flops that are considered successes by ignorant people like you
nope I just dont want to play this on the wii, yh the game looks fun, but a dont wana play it with motions controls, rather a controller and in 720p
no advertising on this game. hell, even i, an informed gamer didnt know it was released this friday. they cant expect it to sell well without the consumers knowing about the product or knowing whether its out or not. simple business.
well this article is the first i hear of the game being released . And i often read n4g and game news .
Could hardly believe it, it didn't even trouble the top 40 for crying out loud! You'd have thought that a decent amount of copies would have been shifted on the Disney name alone. Not to mention a big industry name like Warren Spector being involved, that should have guaranteed some sales. But no, it's bombed. An Epic Flop of John Holmes proportions. I haven't bought it yet, but I'll get it for Christmas. I'm still keen on playing the game in spite of the mixed reviews.
The only time PS3 and 360 fans agree with one another, is when something bad happens concerning the Wii. It only takes a million(maybe even less) dollars in sales for a Wii game to be successful, so why don't we wait things out before we call this title a failure, okays?
They would have to bring it up to scale, not just in resolution but in graphic design, because in comparison to other ps3/360 titles it would look totally shit. This game doesn't look like its worth the extra effort, it hasn't really been received well has it (be honest,) it has had wildly mixed reviews. ps3/360 fans saying bring it to their consoles only as an insult to the wii, i gaurentee those who are saying port it to the ps3/360 wouldn't even buy it if it was released on those systems. I will give it try when it goes down in price. its too much of a gamble for me when the reviews are so mixed
This is indeed sad, gamers today are more into the flash and quick fix, then the substance. I love games like these, and that is why I continue to purchase niche titles such as this.
LittleBigPlanet 2 (PS3) adds 8,000 pre-orders this week for a total of 124,000. The game is currently eight weeks from launch. With eight weeks until launch expect pre-orders to start picking up once the holiday buying season ends. Disney Epic Mickey (Wii) is this week’s top game before launch. The game adds 50,000 pre-orders in its final week before launch for a total of 196,000. Expect first week sales in America in the 250,000 to 350,000 range. Game is already ahead in sales of what Sony fanboys consider to be a great selling AAA must own hardcore title where you play with puppets.. Guess LBP is a flop too
I Will laugh at you when epic lb2 sales splat you in the face you do realise the first game has over 3m sales, lol you expect lbp2 to do worse?? you are a fanboy indeed if true... ps lbp1 sales week one was around 300k any bets for 500k first week for lbp2??
I do hope you aren't quoting a certain site well known for bullshit figures there.
who cares? I'm still getting it
lmao, i knew it was gonna flop. they should have did like i suggested, instead on canning the PS3 version make it a downloadable game on PSN. there is still time to try and save it.
