So I was reading how in the first week of sales, SMG only sold a modest 500k copies of the game, whereas Halo 3 by comparison sold a massive 3 million copies. Is this the fault of Nintendo or is it a case that the Wii fad is dying. If Nintendo's flagship title can only sell 500k, then what chance do third parties have in selling well on the Wii? Why would they invest money in a console where software sales are so low. I'm sure the global sales of SMG will improve gradually, but compared to the sales of Halo 3 it's minuscule. I'm sure piracy plays some part in it, but you can't blame the pirates in reality. They account for a very small percentage. There's 12 million Wii owners, and only 500k thought it worthy of buying. I expect that SSBB will sell around the same amount, but I don't think that it will gain many new owners, and will be selling to mainly an existing audience, a hardcore audience at tghat, just like Mario Galaxy. Thoughts?
