    The top 5 out of 7 Wii games sell bundled plastic/controllers with the game, so I wouldn't say it bombed. As with the UK thread, June/July isn't a top selling month so relax it'll grow a community in time.

    Plus it was only released on 23rd June so it's not even 2 weeks worth of sales.

    It's apparently sold pretty well in Europe, was top of the Game shop chart in the UK and sold out in a great deal of places in Germany. It'll go platinum without a problem methinks. [​IMG]

    It had 9 days. Please wait till the July numbers come out before you claim it as a bomb. Thank you.

    So because with 6-7days worth of retail sales it did over 71K that's a bomb? It's a bit disengenous to call it a fail on the numbers for the month of June, when it saw a week of June. Also, Wii games like that sell high over time, not in the short run. COD WaW did 1/2 that when it came out, it's like 6mo or so at retail now and over 1.3Million.

    I think it's safe to say it bombed. Everyone knows that a game like Conduit has to do well in its first month if it wants to see healthy returns. Not every game on a Nintendo systems can be "evergreen." I honestly don't think we'll see the community grow, either. I think most folks wanted to get behind the game because of how serious High Voltage showed itself to be, but in the end, they only delivered a mediocre game. Awesome controls or not, it just doesn't seem like a game with much steam. If you can't sell 100k in your first month for a game with a production budget like The Conduit's, then yeah, you've bombed.

    I notice for the DS that COD 4 was on the list but not COD 5.

    I found a bunch of these numbers really surprising actually. Mario kart still selling over 100k and other games barely selling at all (to lazy to list but it is quite obvious)

    It seems that just because the Wii is mostly made up of casual and mini game games, that there is so much hype about violent, and good graphics games...

    For heaven sakes people, 70k+ in 9 days isn't a bomb. Many games have sold worst, before going on to be a million seller.

    It's almost as if you want it to fail as you have a hidden agenda against the Wii, and judging from comments like "Only party games and shovelware can sell on the system", it's obvious that you people do.

    With your comment I have a different issue. First, "many games have sold [worse] before going on to be a million seller? Name three.

    Second, you have to consider the production cost vs. sales. Any game from the Imagine series can sell 10k copies and still be a huge success simply because the cost to get it to retail is so cheap. However, The Conduit has been in production for a long while, and you can count on the fact that there were some heavy financial burdens attached to the creation of that game. Hell, even if they sell half a million copies (which I don't see happening within five years), they might not have recouped everything they spent on the game -- that's production, advertising, shipping, legal, and on and on.

    Stopped reading at neogaf. (Also they might not be real? lmao neogaf...)

    Sales topic discussion is nothing but fanboy drivel.

    People who care about sales figures aren't true gamers.

    First off, you can go fuck yourself with the grammar nazi faggotry. And I used the right form of worst/worse, so I think you better practice what your preach.

    2 names comes to mind right off the bat. Boom Box and World at War. Both did poorly when compared to The Conduit in their opening month, both were hailed as complete failures, both ended up doing over a million and shutting up doubters. Also, you have no idea how much money went into development of the game. HVS is a small developer, there was no way they spent as much money as you're trying to suggest. Even 300-500k sold is enough to break even on many 360 and PS3 games, what makes you think a Wii title would require more?

    Please just shut up and learn your place. It's obvious you don't know what you are talking about.

    Conduit sold too much imo, the game is the definition of worthless trash, it should have sold 10 copies total, with 9 of those returned to purchase a real game on ps3/360, and the the remaining copies printed into a land fill with E.T. for atari 2600. As it is, 70k copies is way too many sold for something so pathetically bad.

    Also, if you liked this game, i feel sorry for your family.

    A bit daft to judge whether a game has been a success/failure after only 12 days sales data in the US and 2 days sales data in Europe. They reckon it's sold 18K in Europe in 2 days which is good going imo, it'll be in the Top 10 All Format charts in the UK next week I think.
