The Wii is extremely successful. Games that appeal to the mythical core gamer audience haven't sold well due to a variety of reasons, must notably marketing, and a reputation for having only shovelware on the system. Many people have given up looking for the gems on the system, which are numerous. IT's sad really.

You don't sell 70 mil and call yourself a failure. Buy the good games, people.

Agreed. That's one of the main issues plaguing third party devs. The "hardcore" audience is there, but no advertising aren't going to sell well. Because there are a ton of hardcore gamers that don't keep up to date on gaming news.

sales dont mean anything, i wish me every system would have a tagging hours programm running. You would see that the wii would have the worst number due to the lag of hardcore gamers audience.

That wasn't my point. Sega said the game performed well, when it didn't. This could be the same case. What if Capcoms initial expectations were 5,000 lol

Just Dance is no different from Guitar Hero or Dance Dance Revolution.

So really that wasn't a complete failure.

I tried liking Madworld. Really I did. I even said it was a great game! now that I look back at the game...Platinum could have made it play much better than it actually did.

And If the Wii was a complete failure then why is Nintendo MAKING MONEY?????

I liked Madworld. :? The only issue was that it was really short. However since I only paid $30 for it I can look past that.

I miss my Wii and it was servicable while I had it. It fits perfectly in a family environment and Super Mario Galaxy was my favorite game from this generation.

Out of those 70, 000, 000 people owning a Wii how many are actually gamers hyping stuff such as Zelda, MH3, Metroid other M? Most of those people don't even know what the hell Monster Hunter is imo. Wii is missing *hardcore* games becouse it doesn't get 3rd party support and it'll keep failing till you see 98% of multiplats going on all three consoles which won't happen this gen for sure.

Mario1331
There is no dictionary definition of the term "hardcore".. When journalists/media/fanboys refer to "hardcore" they generally mean games targeted for the "core" audience. So what's the "core" audience. It's usually games that take a little more dexterity to master and have more involved stories. If the entire story of a game is explained on the back of the box, it's safe to assume it's not a core game. If a game uses a sum total of 2-3 buttons, it's safe to assume it's not a core game. If you add both previous statements to a game that's rated E-for everyone.. It's safe to assume it's not a core game. Atleast that's my interpretation.

It sold 0.23 million copies :|.

Perhaps it exceeded expectations, but that's because Capcom has given up hope for the Wii, even though it's kinda their own damn fault their games haven't sold. Market better and make a AAA quality game, it'll sell millions guarantee it. Monster Hunter Tri sold over a million in Japan alone, so obviously games CAN sell.

It's not because they gave up hope, it's because 99% of the population of America has no clue what Tatsunoko is.

Think of Sega. Why do they name their games "Sonic AND Sega All Stars" rather than just "Sega All Stars"??? Because 99% of people know who Sonic is, and his name being plastered on the box will sell it regardless of quality
