In its first week of sales, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption sold 400,000 copies, knocking Bioshock (PC and 360) out of its first place position.

Halo 3 has Sold 1.1 million copies, and the game is still being made in factories.

What are you trying to prove? Sales don't make the game any better.

Yeah and that's pretty bad anyways...for a next-gen sequal game. Halo 3 is going to sell over half of that in it's first week. But really, it doesn't matter.

That is pretty surprising. Hopefully this will be a sign to Nintendo and other devs that if they keep bringing out more hardcore focussed games, they will sell.

Taking into account all the Walmarts, Kmarts, Targets, EBGames and other stores that might sell if you would probably at best have 20,000 locations, thats definitely on the high side too. That would require for them to sell one copy every 30 seconds and given the fact that a lot of the bigger places that sell it will be selling other things at the same time its plainly not possible.

Awesome. I contributed to that 400,000. It's a great game. And to think, Nintendo under-hyped it and it still sold that much.

Nintendogs also sold a crapload while psychonauts fizzled and died. Your point?

Won't keep that for 2 weeks and Halo 3 will OWN IT! I see 1 to 2 million Halo 3 games in 1 DAY! Since Halo 3 has already outsold MP3 and it hasn't even been released. ;)

Good thing. Roughly the same as Bioshock, actually.

The only reason Zelda sold so well the first week was because it was a launch game (and the best launch game at that).

Why are people comparing this to Halo 3? Halo 3 is the most "casual" title on the 360, obviously its going to sell more than Metroid Prime 3.

On the other hand, Metroid Prime 3 sold more on Wii than Bioshock did on 360 in it's first week with half the American Userbase.

Also, comparing with other Prime games, Metroid Prime 3 has had the best first week sales in its series. This is GREAT news because Nintendo considers this to be their hardest of hardcore titles... which it is.

As far as Halo goes, of course it will sell better than Metroid, its the only reason alot of people buy the system, cawsuals and Hardcores alike, including myself. As far as Metroid goes, it won't sell as good as Halo, but it is elling well considering its not the only reason people buy a Wii. The has a wide variety of games, and people who buy one have that in mind, but alot of people who buy a 360 automattically think Halo 3, and they will automatically buy it. Metroid is also underhyped compared to Halo. Not saying Metroiod is a bad game, I bought it and its an amazing game, but this si to settle for the peole who keep talking about how Halo is selling alot more than Metroid.
