Default Yet more Nintendo sales figures

http://gamespot.com/gamespot/stories...832770,00.html

One thing that got my attention:

"According to the press release, Super Smash Bros. Melee has sold 250,000 copies in nine days. Nintendo believes that this makes it the best-selling game for any video game console launched this year."

Umm, they seem to forget that MGS2 sold 1.8 million copies in 2 weeks, which is 900,000 units per week.

Remember guys, with careful wording you can make something sound like anything you want! That's how legal loopholes and polticians work! It makes the world go around. Still can't wait to get my hands on a copy of SSB:M tho.

Interestingly worded Seems Nintendo is pulling pages out of the Microsoft book

Anyway, Smash Bros. is a very good selling game....especially when you figure the system has just started. How well would it sell had there been a GameCube base of 10-20million units?? I'm sure it would be a lot higher than 250,000

Well it won't matter what the NPD reports on the market. I just read they don't calculate the sales from Walmart into the figures. The nations largest chain store and they don't bother with it. Sheesh that can throw off the numbers on either side quite a bit.

WalMart moves more Nintendo Hardware and software than any other retail chain. To not include them in the research makes no sense, but I read the same thing that you did. That report will be accurate, yeah, ummmm, right.
