It is not that bad. Look at Shaun White Wii. It ended up being better than the other versions even if it was "kiddy".
primogen18 (on 26 April 2009)
This is THE last Madden on Wii, so I would snatch this up if you can.

(Madden 2010 is on Wii, but they changed to an extremely kiddy art direction, think Backyard Football or Kidz Sportz, this isn't a joke, EA KILLED the madden series for Nintendo)
primogen18 (on 19 March 2009)
The "all play" thing could have been smaller, and a "with" would have been nice before it so it doesn't seem like a completely different game and not the real thing. any "others" sales?
kopstudent89 (on 27 February 2009)
i think the all play theme killed the legs, but hey thats my opinion i guess...
Frinaldo (on 09 February 2009)
a friend of mine was going to pick this game up for me. When he got back he told me he wasent sure if this was the true 09 version of madden because of the All-Play logo
that might be a reason why the 08 version still sell
widescreen (on 28 January 2009)
the crusty box-art for all "All Play" titles puts a cheesy spin on these titles. Has marketing realized that you can be mass-market but you don't need to be kiddie?

LOL @
Voltaire

I clicked on this game thinking the exact same thing, the cover art is just horrible, it doesn't even look like its related to the other versions. It's sad its not selling as well. Wii has so many more systems out there that it is almost embarrassing that this being outsold by so much on PS3/360.
Voltaire (on 17 January 2009)
Have the game, its good, and while EA tried its best to make this appeal to the masses, its still Madden at heart. I stand by me saying the terrible box-art is a reason its sales are less than stellar.
averyblund (on 14 January 2009)
A million for sure, it is tracking way above 08 which is 70,000 shy of a million and might even make it itself. Iratating that the PS3 has Others sales and the Wii doesn't. Judging by the PS3 I would say there is another 10k at least missing.
Kenka (on 14 January 2009)
BIG drop. What the hell... will it really reach a million ?
Hyperion (on 14 January 2009)
I really feel this game would have done better had it remained simply Madden 09. The All-Play name and atrocious boxart didn't help at all. Those thing probably hindered its sales.

@ fmc

Sure in the grand scheme of things it should be added up, but it's the same issue with so many other games.
ZuZayLi (on 04 January 2009)
I live in Europe and own the game. Better than Madden 08. This game is amazing. I love soccer too but American football is waaay better; Yaaa-Haaa!!
Zucas (on 04 January 2009)
Yea having EU sales would be pointless. At the most probably sold about 5,000 copies If that .01 is really that important then fine.
fmc83 (on 28 December 2008)
Well I wouldn't say, that they don't sell at all in Europe - the fanbase is just smaller. A friend bought it, and I will buy it as well.

Still I would reckon that there are at least 30-50k copies out in others. Most of the games are sold with a price tag...
outlawauron (on 28 December 2008)
@ Voltaire

Not at all!
brk00 (on 26 December 2008)
Man.....I think platinum is possible.
bigjon (on 26 December 2008)
madden 08 has sold 150k since 09 has come out...

Wii owners (parents) tend to gobble up games at the 29.99 and under price tags. 08 really started to do well when its price went down in the months before 09.

1 million is a sure thing, but it looks like shawn white will beat it for the best selling sports game (I am happy about that)
Tuulikk (on 22 December 2008)
@ Zucas

Does it have like 8 months to sell next year? I think the changes of it going Platinum is good to.
Voltaire (on 21 December 2008)
Do Madden titles sell well in Others?
Zucas (on 21 December 2008)
Should be over 600k by the end of the year and if its anything like the 08 version, it'll leg it out even til next holiday season. So easy platinum title for Wii.
Narfer (on 06 December 2008)
When it goes platinum will it be the first madden to sell a million on a nintendo console?
kopstudent89 (on 04 December 2008)
the previous version sold really well in the holidays last year... so this could be at around 600-750k range by the end of the year, and then legs will carry it to a million...
GIO (on 03 December 2008)
I just bought this game the other day and I must say I really enjoy it after i take off all the ~All Play~ modes of the game. It is very addiciting and fun to throw the ball and tackle with the remote.
bigjon (on 01 December 2008)
This game will still be selling 10k a week when 2010 comes out... Plat easy. I think 1.3 mil is the final resting point here.
arsenal009 (on 08 November 2008)
Hey guys, compare sales for this game & the 08 version:
http://www.vgchartz.com/games/game.php?id=7178®ion=All

It outsold the 08 iteration in every of its 1st 10 weeks and that one sold 830k. So i'm sure this one will sell over 830k.
WiiBox3 (on 16 October 2008)
So far doing better than previous years after 9 weeks...
Aprisaiden (on 11 October 2008)
i wonder how long the legs will last.
smac (on 11 October 2008)
what is with all that pink on the boxart?
bigjon (on 11 October 2008)
Maybe if EA decided to ditch the crappy box art on the Wii series it would sell a bit better.
kopstudent89 (on 04 October 2008)
wow not bein adjusted down yet(though i think it will:S) soo lets not keep our hopes up
arsenal009 (on 21 September 2008)
Finally starting to sell more than PS2 version in NA.

But where is Others data?
Chrizum (on 16 September 2008)
Adjusted downwards with 60k. Still 80k above NPD, does that mean ioi doubts NPD's tracking methods concerning this game?

All in all, over 200k within a month is still good.
Voltaire (on 13 September 2008)
The box art and the unnessesary 'all play' name will undoubtedly turn off veteran players, but i hear the game itself is very good (much like previous Maddens). Im sure it will sell very well, slowly maybe.
JonasJuice (on 12 September 2008)
It'll break a million pretty easily.
Kurakasa (on 12 September 2008)
This won't even oversell madden 08.
Chrizum (on 12 September 2008)
I still think the game will reach a million though. But yeah, major bummer. :-(
kopstudent89 (on 12 September 2008)
lol. So much for the 1.5 mil prediction... it was probabely the box art, i blame the boxart!!
Chrizum (on 11 September 2008)
If NPD is right, this game is overtracked by over 100%. That means this game is selling exactly as well as Madden 08 for the Wii.

Ouch.
Chrizum (on 07 September 2008)
This game will reach 1,5 million for sure, probably even near 2 million at the time Madden 2010 releases.
jpelles (on 07 September 2008)
Madden 2008 Wii
74,421 1st week
28,116 2nt week
20,738 3d week
Total 800k
This years is pretty much guarenteed to hit a million.

This is very big for a Nintendo platform since the last time this happened is... i'm not even sure. I know there were some non madden NFL games on N64 that did a million.
stof (on 04 September 2008)
Don't worry Brute, it will.
11ht11 (on 03 September 2008)
where are the "other" sales?
jeffrey9999 (on 02 September 2008)
each year it's going to sell closer to the 360 version because the wii sells almost 3 more then the xbox360 so it's only a matter of time till All games sell better on wii.......... I think madden09 might just pass a million then maybe they will put NCAA2010 online then I might buy that game two but sorry EA their wasn't enough effort put into NCAA09, maybe next year........btw I got madden09 and it's a big improvement from madden08 especially the online play, theirs almost know lag........
Zucas (on 30 August 2008)
Well 2nd week sales bode great things considering the dropoffs for Madden 08 on Wii were much more percentage wise closer to the 360 version dropoff of Madden 09. Meaning it's hard to say what sales will be like over the next week but I'd say we can expect about 40k-50k next week and then I'm thinking it will hit a leveling off point at about 15k-20k. And then like Madden 08 explode in the holiday season.

But basically within the next 10 weeks before the holiday season we are looking at about 250k-300k in sales putting it at 0.53 million in sales. And then the final 9 weeks of the year it could be anything from 300k-500k. But it'll go platinum either at the end of this year or the first quarter next year.
brute (on 30 August 2008)
I wonder if this will sell 1 million.
bigjon (on 29 August 2008)
great 2nd week sales, the Wii version will see the best legs...
Chrizum (on 29 August 2008)
Why is this the only version where Others sales are not tracked? Seems kind of silly.
Lolcislaw (on 29 August 2008)
I wonder how much this version can sell in others.
kopstudent89 (on 24 August 2008)
yeah dont underestimate these sales, especially for a nintendo console whose graphical capabilities are less than the competition(alot find graphics a priority for a game like this).
So for me its really good sales
Zucas (on 21 August 2008)
Haha when's the last time a football game has done this on a ninty console opening week since the N64 era eh.

Given the mainstream popularity of the Wii and the sales of the other 2 on Wii this should have great legs and probably this holidays push over a million no prob.
Lolcislaw (on 20 August 2008)
Well Great Sales for Madden Game on the Wii, hopefully it will sell more then Million
SaviorX (on 20 August 2008)
@WiiBox3

Yup, it took about a month for Madden 08 to get these sales. So now it isn't a matter of IF this will hit 1.2 million, but when. Madden 08 sold last week what it did on its 7th week of release.

The legs on this game will be even stronger.
WiiBox3 (on 20 August 2008)
It took the other previous Madden games at least 4-5 weeks to sell as much as this did in its first week..
Thekirby45 (on 10 August 2008)
I already paidoff the whole game cant wait till Tuesday
toastboy44562 (on 09 August 2008)
lol at the boxart
perculator (on 25 April 2008)
Brett Farve is on the cover
Explosivo (on 13 April 2008)
