16. failure? Nov 29, 2007, 22:30 mysticmage
 
lets not forget it's out in japan. and all news stories i can pull up says it sold 250k first week in japan. So we know there's 750k copies sold so far. which is good. and lets see. halo3 sold 50k it's first week released in japan. so considering these numbers I hardly think it's a failure.

I keep flying off the edge. After doing that a few times, I've become angered. I mean really, what kind of society builds a water course over a damn black hole??

Heh, like Ray said there is really no need to rush the level. I dont think you need to push the accelerator at all to beat the time. Now some of the comet timed levels can be really fustrating, and I pulled a few hairs trying to finish the last boss level.

Loving the toy levels

Ya those were a blast.

I love all the crazy levels in that game.

Granted, all the designers are clearly on crack and should be placed in mental institutions.

But I still love all the designs.
The game is so simple, yet so complex and amazing!
Loving the toy levels :),

But Nintendo has never heavily hyped its games, no hype could ever compete with the marketing machine that is Halo, and what little advertising Nintendo currently does focuses more on the casual gamer than promoting any one specific title.

Bemusingly, I even recall an interview a year or two back where Nintendo commented on how it has fairly stagnant game sales - regardless of the number (small or large) of titles release each year, they still generally push the same amount of combined units.
Props for calling him "mare-E-oh." Hee hee.
Wishing they did more with the red stars,
Ray

Just go slowly, look up ahead, and slow down at steep turns (don't alway shold down the acceleration buttion.) Further, is there even a time limit on that one? I realize they have oen running on the screen, but I do not believe you have to "beat" those to get the star.

Just wait until you re-visit the levels for the last few stars or purple coins. That green-star Monkey Ball level kicked my ass a few times.

Still pissed off at Luigi :|,
Ray About 180 stars attained, about 60 to go.

I kind of understand what "nervous boy" is saying... Super Mario Galaxy is probably the largest Wii title to come out this year. So going by this standard, then you would expect a fanfare rivaling Halo. Which you definitely are not getting with this game's release. But he is stupid for calling it a failure. The games a success, obviously. But, it is simply not selling as well as Nintendo probably was hoping for.

9. 500k is bad? Nov 29, 2007, 13:37 Tumbler
 
500k seems pretty dang good for the first week. I think COD4 got similar numbers on the 360, it sold more in total but 500k for one console is fantastic.

Everyone who owns a Wii is probably going to buy this game, considering all the other stuff to buy and play right now it's possible that people are just waiting a bit before purchasing Mario.

If the game stops selling cold at 500k and doesn't continue on I'd say he may turn out to be right but I think Mario is going to sell very well each week and probably clear 2 million before the year is over. (just pulled that number right out of thin air though, have nothing to support that claim)

OMG, that was like watching a news cast put on by the local community college. Also, is this guy a fucking idiot? What other games have sold 500K in the first week (aside from Halo obviously)? I'm sure there's thousands of companies that would LOVE to sell 500K in the game's lifetime let alone in the first week.

That chick doing the interview should really find a new line of work, or at least something behind the camera where she doesn't need to talk.

'Huge borderline failure', a contradictory statement!

To be honest the guy just seemed nervous; what with having to discuss console fanboyism with a hot and disinterested lady.

Having not played the game, you comment made me laugh.
