Indulge in it's whiffy sensation

First off she. Secondly I'm not lying.Asim Mehmood said:There are no such links. He is just being stubborn and lying to save face now because he mixed up the figures. Or maybe he is just trolling and having fun by denying the facts.Yopaz said:Can you link to one of these sources that claims Super Mario 3D World sold 350k rather than saying "every gaming outlet"?Dragonbums said:That same thread you linked is the same one in the article, which if clicked on states that they sold 420k in its first week. So either your mixing up day 1 sales with week 1 sales or every gaming outlet is wrong in their statistics.Asim Mehmood said:"Facepalm!" Please look carefully at the first post or the Neogaf source link. Super Mario 3D LAND sold 344,000 in its first week which was released on the 3DS years ago. Super Mario 3D world sold only 99K/106K in it first week. Here are two more links,Dragonbums said:I'm looking at both the source of the article, and various other outlets. Every single of them has said that SM3DW sold around 350k in it's first week. I'm not sure where you are getting 99K from, but that is not the numbers ANY media venue is reporting.Asim Mehmood said:I think you misread the figures; it is not 344,000 units sold. Super Mario 3D World sold only 106K and that is according to Famitsu. According to Media Create, it sold only 99K. It was supposed to be the biggest system seller for the Wii U and it was not able to do anything. It got outsold by 170K by the lowest selling FF game ever. Furthremore "system-sellers" do not rely on the installed base to sell; they make people buy the system to play them. This clearly proves that the game was not a system seller.Dragonbums said:Taking the route of IGN?
Okay, yes, for a 3D Mario game it had poor sales.
However you need to look at the bigger picture.
If I'm not mistaken, there are only 1 million Wii U's in Japan. Super Mario 3D world sold about 344,000 copies in the week of release.
That means that almost 40% of all Wii U owners bought the game. And since Mario games tend to have steady sales and a good attachment rate, the more people who buy a Wii U, the more sales they will make on this game.
They aren't like regular AAA buster games where they sell like hotcakes week 1, and drop off the face of the planet a month in.
This is going to be a must buy game for any Wii U owner.
As such, my comment still stands. Overall the games sold 1 million units. On a console with a 3 million units install base that is far from bad, but not ideal. I would be more concerned about Lightning Returns.
Also keep in mind that this is Japanese sales, not worldwide, USA or Europe.
Thirdly I just told the person I mixed up 3D world with 3D land. An easy mistake seeing as how its the same name with a word swapped.
Fourth, quit your flamebaiting.
