Goldeneye 007 sales for Wii rather disappointing
Bond firing blanks?
A Week has past since Goldeneye had a new face lift with Daniel Craig being the Bond. Back in June this year. Michael Pachter pretty much written off Goldeneye of being a failure, and no doubt questioning the Wii capabilities of having such a acclaimed game back on the N64 to become a Wii exlcusive
“Given the track record of ‘hardcore’ Wii exclusives, I would bet that sales are underwhelming. It’s a funny thought to resurrect a 10 year-old brand – maybe longer – and keep it a Nintendo exclusive. It is unlike Activision to do an exclusive, and I am particularly surprised that they would do it with Goldeneye. I completely agree that most of the original audience is pretty hardcore, and think a Rare game on the 360 would have a better chance. Perhaps this is all due to the James Bond license, but… a Wii exclusive is odd.” said Michael Pachter.
First week sales for Goldeneye worldwide: 144,691
- North America – 96,735
- Japan – N/A
- Europe – 47,956
Seems that Goldeneye could have received better recognition if released multiplatform.
