I just love this compilations, those are two fantastic and very fun games. And it sold really well, I'm happy for Sega!
d21lewis (on 19 July 2011)
Played both of these qt Dave qnd Buster's Arcade and had to buy it! Even bought two Wii handguns to get the arcade experience!

Miss playing these at the Arcade!!!!

This is still out-selling Overkill? I guess people see it as a better value with 2 games on one disc
Spidey-RJ (on 15 January 2011)
There is no way HOTD2&3 is better than HOTD Overkill. Overkill is an all-new game developed exclusevely fot the Wii, while 2&3 is nothing but a port. Don´t get me wrong, I own both games, and I love them, but they are just on different levels.
Conegamer (on 05 November 2010)
Wow, it sold over 1mil? Shocked!
primogen18 (on 29 January 2010)
HOTD4 would be very cool! Online leader-boards this time SEGA.
Innervate (on 14 January 2010)
It's a better game, that's why it outsold Overkill.
zzyoshiman (on 04 December 2009)
@ nightwish, he is the main character in the series
for some reason this sold a million copies while Overkill didn't
MegaDrive08 (on 29 November 2009)
Y cant i find this game anywhere, everywhere i go they tell me there out of stock!
Red4ADevil (on 17 October 2009)
Good job Sega! Now bring THOTD 4 like you promised. We'll be waiting.
Falk Sturmfels (on 28 June 2009)
Lets hope that there will be no down-adjustment anymore. And prey for Overkill to reach the same sales!
Arius Dion (on 26 June 2009)
I wonder why this isn't proof of Mature games selling on the Wii, but Overkill and MW are proof that Mature games DON"T sell on Wii..Baffling.
Nightwish224 (on 25 June 2009)
"You'll suffer just like G did." I don't care, and who the hell is G?!!?!
dark_gh0st_b0y (on 28 May 2009)
finally!!
DavidValbu (on 25 May 2009)
0.03+0.48+0.49 = 1.02?? I think you must revise your maths.
arsenal009 (on 24 May 2009)
Yay!
SJGohan3972 (on 22 May 2009)
How is 0.03 + 0.48 + 0.49 = 1million? wouldn't that be 1.02 million?

anyways, pretty sweet, and I didn't realize this was available in Japan packaged with the Wii Zapper, that's pretty sweet - I wish we got cool deals like that.
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 19 May 2009)
WHAMMY, one mill!

I wonder if Overkill will ever make it there.
SaviorX (on 19 May 2009)
Hey, its a million! But I'll keep the congrats reserved, there may be another adjustment.
kopstudent89 (on 18 May 2009)
wow! :O sweeeet :D
Son1x (on 18 May 2009)
nice, another million seller :)
Zucas (on 18 May 2009)
Sweet about time.
ash3336 (on 18 May 2009)
MILLION SELLER! got adjusted up.
st_muscat0 (on 08 May 2009)
Others numbers for next week will make it 0.49 million there, so hopefully this weeks and next weeks America numbers are good so it can reach 0.99 million by next week. And then a million. :)
primogen18 (on 30 April 2009)
I should snag this sometime soon, though I am still hooked on Overkill, but I want more House of the Dead.
naruto3336 (on 28 April 2009)
Id say million seller in about 2 months.
naruto3336 (on 21 April 2009)
This game got an amazing opening week considering it came out the same week that Brawl did.
MasterZack (on 16 April 2009)
Actually, it a good game for buy it?
killeryoshis (on 06 April 2009)
This title is not fair. It goes up then down,up,down. Its just teaseing us.
naruto3336 (on 02 April 2009)
Overkill can Overkill this hopefully.
jim1029 (on 02 March 2009)
Doing really well. Hopefully Overkill can too.
Fido (on 16 January 2009)
This might get a little boost from HotD: Overkill and reach the mill even faster
SmokedHostage (on 08 January 2009)
So close to Platinum.
OmegaRugalv3 (on 07 January 2009)
If this is selling this well ... I guess House of the Dead Overtkill will be multi platinuum
11ht11 (on 28 December 2008)
sold 40k last week, next month it will be a million seller
Voltaire (on 26 December 2008)
Itll hit 1 mil in a few weeks, thats for sure. Its a great foundation for OVERKILL.
bigjon (on 26 December 2008)
I explained to my finance that this would be just like the Archade shooters with the Zapper, once she understood she thought it was an awsome game...

seriously, 30 bucks for an un ending arcade shooter.... what else can you ask for : )
jpelles (on 26 December 2008)
When this first came out I said this would get pushed to a million because of the name.

Everyone from kids to parents recognize these games since there still in movie theatres and were so popular back in the day.

But I was thinking broadly with steady sales. This is selling a lot faster than I thought it would.
brk00 (on 21 December 2008)
PLEASE 1kk
Zucas (on 20 December 2008)
Man and people thought my 850k by the end of the year was an over estimate but man it's looking to be an under estimate. Wii software never ceases to surprise me. Software beast.
segajon (on 13 December 2008)
This baby is gonna hit a million. it is defining legs
bigjon (on 13 December 2008)
I think price had alot to do with the great sales here... If UC was 29.99... it would have sold well over 2 million.
kopstudent89 (on 12 December 2008)
did this get adjusted upwards, or di sales really pick up recently?
Spidey-RJ (on 02 December 2008)
Lots of fun.

I expect Overkill, being a brand new Wii exclusive title, to do great.

Especially after these robust numbers accomplished by the 2&3 port.
johnsobas (on 22 November 2008)
omg, this is probably gonna sell a million.
SaviorX (on 21 November 2008)
I'm expanding my earlier prediction for this to 800k by the end of the year. It has 6 weeks left, and the 12k-a-week legs aren't going anywhere.

The olnly thing that could stop this is a readjustment.
Resident_Hazard (on 10 November 2008)
If you can still find it, it's a clearance item at Target now--I got it for $15 brand new.
CONMAN15 (on 09 November 2008)
This probably means the new Hotd will do killer. I find it weird that horror games do so good on wii.
Zucas (on 23 October 2008)
10k a week with 11 weeks to go definitely says 780k by then. But of course it'll get holiday increase so more than likely we'll be at about 850k by the end of the year like I predicted awhile ago. But once again its going to be about how this title sales in early 2009. If it keeps up that 10k a week thing then platinum for sure. If not then we'll see it die at a very anti climatic 900k-950k. But I'd go out on a limb and say this will go platinum.
SaviorX (on 11 October 2008)
750k is a definite before the end of the year.
segajon (on 10 October 2008)
11k this week world wide!!
rockleemexico (on 07 October 2008)
650k XD could do 750k before new year?
brk00 (on 29 September 2008)
600k is VERY good for this port =P.

But it is a good game.
SaviorX (on 26 September 2008)
This game will ride the legs of 10k a week Worldwide into the holidays. It will be about about 700k by December. However, will it see a boost during those times?
Zucas (on 16 September 2008)
Once again selling at 10k a week and currently at 600k. Will be just under 700k by start of holiday season. Question is will it get lost in the holiday season? Well it's hard to say that considering with it's cheaper price and obvious appeal it might not haha. I think this title has a strong chance considering how it's been able to last. Possibly around 850k by end of holiday season then it'll just need to tack on the rest in 2009 to make it. But needs to do it before Overkill.
chris100185 (on 08 September 2008)
Is anyone else not surprised by these numbers? It's House of the Dead. It's been an arcade staple for 12 years, and unlike the other console light gun games you don't need any special accessories. You get 2 arcade classics for $30. I didn't have to think twice before adding it to my must have list.
OmegaRugalv3 (on 01 September 2008)
Fantastic party game. Just beat HotD 2 while downing some Barcardi Mojito.

For the price tag ... its well worth it considering you will most likely spend more playing this at your local Dave N Busters lol
amp316 (on 20 August 2008)
The bad voice acting in 2 is what makes it my favorite entry in the series. New HOTD coming to the Wii. Awesome!!!
MontanaHatchet (on 14 August 2008)
Anyone else laughing at the ridiculously bad voice acting in HoTD2? And the horrible dialogue in HoTD3? This is an amazing party game by the way. And it should be reaching 600k soon.

Amazing.
SaviorX (on 11 August 2008)
Anybody think this could get a sales boost around Halloween?
wiifan75 (on 11 August 2008)
Great game. Lots of fun. Good investment at $30. My kid and I are loving this game.
ClaudeLv250 (on 23 July 2008)
The legs on this game are crazy. I would have never thought this would reach gold.

There's really no reason for Sega not to live up to their HotD4 promise.
MontanaHatchet (on 19 July 2008)
Half a million!

Let's see if it can make the magic number *crosses fingers*.
Nebnosneh (on 14 July 2008)
Sega are having great success with this and ghost squad. And so they should, they are great fun.

I rekon their next Wii port should be Star Wars Trilogy Arcade.
MontanaHatchet (on 10 July 2008)
House of the Dead 3 is infinitely better.
noname2200 (on 04 July 2008)
I dunno. Being able to actually aim at your target is something you can't do in Umbrella Chronicles. The price sure doesn't hurt either.
11ht11 (on 02 July 2008)
@ken
umbrella chronicles is way better.
Kenology (on 26 June 2008)
What do you guys think is better: House of the Dead 2&3 or RE: Umbrella Chronicles?
Andrex (on 19 June 2008)
Holy hell this game has legs in Europe and America. :O
--OkeyDokey-- (on 13 June 2008)
This game's got some impressive legs.
Sega must be loving Nintendo this gen.
11ht11 (on 06 June 2008)
i remember playing this for hours on my xbox, im for sure getting this one day!!
Zucas (on 30 May 2008)
If it keeps its 30k a week pace then it has a chance of going platinum as it'll survive the holiday season, where titles like this sell the best.
MontanaHatchet (on 28 May 2008)
Now this is a title I'd like to see hit a million. It looks like a lot of fun. Possible future purchase for me.
SaviorX (on 21 May 2008)
If this game continues to sell like 22,000 worldwide a week like it will probably doing from now on, it can hit 500k worldwide in about 9 weeks. So by July 23rd.
Smeags (on 06 May 2008)
This game's sales just won't die!

(I am teh clevers)
jpelles (on 05 May 2008)
This game has a lot of recognition. I know I love it.

I think this game will have amazing legs and go on to sell a million in it's lifetime.
slalanc01 (on 05 May 2008)
This game is a blast!
tokilamockingbrd (on 22 April 2008)
awsome sales for this one, Sega has to be ecstatic.

has a decent chance for 500k
itap08 (on 21 April 2008)
Yes, get it. If you liked RE:UC, you'll really like this. Plus, if it sells well, SEGA said that they would likely bring over HotD4!
DarkNight_DS (on 21 April 2008)
Should I pick this game up? I love Umbrella Chronicles... this looks like it might go well with my collection.
dvarca1231 (on 21 April 2008)
HOTD 4 for the Wii would be awesome, but I'm not sure if the Wii could handle it
11ht11 (on 18 April 2008)
someone uploaded 3 of the same pics twice

coonana (on 16 April 2008)
that would be cool if this sold a million, possibly HotD4 could come to Wii
segajon (on 14 April 2008)
sega delivers yet again, this game will have good legs for a long time, future million seller
Red4ADevil (on 13 April 2008)
With the ease of porting it to the wii it shouldnt have cost that much to make it and should made some profit with the little sales it made. Awsome game brings back old memories.
johnsobas (on 09 April 2008)
this game is a success for Sega for sure, Wii is the perfect platform for this game.
bigjon (on 08 April 2008)
nice legs, it is a better deal than UC, so it appears to be steal some of UCs steam.
kopstudent89 (on 08 April 2008)
wooow! Sega
AJM Ruler (on 07 April 2008)
This looks to probably hit at least 300K worldwide total, going up there with Ghost Squad. Pretty good sales for re-packaged lightun games. Props to Sega.
MeowTheMouse (on 28 March 2008)
well its not doing really bad in terms of sales
sizynski (on 27 March 2008)
Both House of the Dead 2 and House of the Dead 3 are really fun, especially co-op. I'd say this is a good deal at $30. I'm getting a lot of enjoyment out of it.

Now I hope Sega takes my money and puts it towards a remake of House of the Dead 1 and a port of House of the Dead 4. I think House of the Dead 4 could work on the Wii without much of a problem. It came out in arcades like three years ago. I'm pretty sure that the Wii could handle it without much tweaking.
amp316 (on 24 March 2008)
What? Only question mark head people own this game? Very cool. Exactly the same games I remember. Some might be upset that they weren't upgraded but I'm a purist. Definitely worth the price tag.
superjon2 (on 24 February 2008)
They didn't add the original because the Saturn is so hard to emulate.


It comes out some time between now and May and will cost 20-30 dollars.
Sherlock99 (on 22 January 2008)
when dose this game come out an how much will it cost
ClaudeLv250 (on 12 January 2008)
Why DIDN'T they add the original?
Parokki (on 22 November 2007)
I wish they'd add the original House of the Dead to the bundle as well, as it's the one I played the most at the arcades.

Looking forward to buying this if it's cheap enough...

This is still out-selling Overkill? I

with 2 games on one disc

There is no way HOTD2&3 is better than
