    Considering that the Wii U install base in America is about half the total Wii U install base (4-5 million) selling 570,000 units of a AAA Super Mario title is not very good. Not good at all. That’s only roughly 1/4 of the total US install base.

      Don’t blame me. I bought mine. Just bought AC:IV at GameStop today as well for $29.99, brand new, sealed in the packaging. I’m eating a sandwich right now, then I am going to play it. 😀 Yeaaaaah buddy.

        Funny, I was also thinking about having a sandwich. I’m gonna go make one right now.

        At least your buying them its alot of owners that don’t buy games at all

      In just about 2 months it managed that much. And it could still keep on like most Marios have.
      But no, it isn’t very good at all.

      “Only?” That’s a 25% attach rate, which is pretty damn high for any game from any company.

    I am glad to see Lego City: Undercover at almost a 1/4 million sales. It was quite a fun game!

    • igotworms

      Haha! I agree with you lego city was one of my first games besides zombie u. It was a great game and the first actual console game my gf played for more than a few days. When I saw the lego movie trailer I thought “lego undercover and flying down from space!.”

    The worst part is aside from maybe New Super Mario Bros U and maybe Mario 3D World, it will be impossible with these software sales for Nintendo to even break even on a lot of first party development. Pikmin 3 years ago would’ve at least pushed 1-2 million.

    A million New Leaf sales. So much for it blowing Wild World’s sales out of the water. Why? Install base of the 3DS MUCH smaller than the DS.
