3 million!
SJGohan3972 (on 30 June 2009)
this is the best selling version of GH:WT, but pales in comparison to the sales of GHIII - the series is getting too many games too quickly and if Activision doesn't slow up they're gonna ruin it.

@naruto3336: I believe that mario and sonic was created solely by sega. Of course nintendo had some say in their development, since their characters are involved, but the development was all sega. I would consider this game a third party game.
MontanaHatchet (on 16 May 2009)
Naruto: The versions (PS360 and Wii) were reviewed by different people. Please don't start an argument about which version is the best, just discuss the game.
Red4ADevil (on 13 May 2009)
Go wii at least some dev can find huge success like this. rock on wii.
EdEN (on 29 April 2009)
@primogen18: That's just spreading lies. The Wii version also has DLC. I've downloaded 20 songs since launch so I should know.
gunslinger (on 11 April 2009)
Don't they sell these games in Japan?
naruto3336 (on 09 April 2009)
@ cacafina

Im actually right. Mario and Sonic are second party because Nintendo and Sega made it together. This and GH3 are Third party.
cacafina (on 05 April 2009)
@naruto3336

third mario and sonic is also third party =)
naruto3336 (on 23 March 2009)
8.8/10(WII) IGN
7.9/10(PS3/360) IGN

This shows how the wii version is better. SECOND BEST SELLING THIRD PARTY GAME ON THE WII!
Chrizum (on 04 March 2009)
This game does have DLC. In fact, it has an extra mode which the other versions don't have.

If anything, the HD versions are gimped and this is the ultimate version.
primogen18 (on 01 March 2009)
Ya know eden, PS3 and 360 also get DLC, Wii version does not. Late & Gimped (AGAIN), thats what Activision does to the #1 selling system that is #1 seller of the series. Step backwards anyone? How about if the next guitar hero for Wii has no online at all? Hell, why lets just go back to wired controllers too!
EdEN (on 11 February 2009)
It has sold more on Wii than on any other version... and still we get Guitar Hero: Metallica 2-3 months late.
tuoyo (on 09 February 2009)
This has sold quite alot very quickly. Don't think it can surpas sales of GH3 though since that game is still selling well and a new version would come out before World Tour can get anywhere as close to as high as GH3.
naruto3336 (on 08 February 2009)
@ bigjon

Rock Band 2 is not hurting this game's sales. This game is hurting Rock Band 2's sales. LOL!
primogen18 (on 10 January 2009)
Complete band kits just started to get easier to find. The local mall Gamestop had about 3 or 4 in stock yesterday, but had more of the 360 versions in stock. I didn't know this was doing so much better then that one, and the legs are stronger too. Good job Activision for packing in all of the features plus more.
thetonestarr (on 07 January 2009)
So far it's over half a million ahead of every other version of GH4. Nicely done!
bigjon (on 05 January 2009)
Rockband 2 should not hurt the sales of this game, because this game also has the Guitar only SKU, which RB2 does not, many people dont want to spend 189.99 on a game.

Also I see that the games is now 79.99 in most place (that is why I went ahead and bought it)

Pretty slick to drop the price as soon as the holidays are over.... (they dropped it on all SKUs and all version)
bigjon (on 04 January 2009)
I think the guitar only packs are findable, but ya the complete kits are mia.
Smeags (on 29 December 2008)
Yeah, complete band packs for the Wii are scarce here too. I had to call a couple of stores to find one, and when I did find it, it was the last in stock.

But now I'm a Guitar Hero again! World Tour style (again). :-)
darkheart709 (on 28 December 2008)
we went to like 7 different stores to find the wii version of the complete band pack and we found it at a gamestop. there were plenty of ps3 and 360 versions though
kopstudent89 (on 28 December 2008)
i have a feeling this was under tracked this week...
bigjon (on 26 December 2008)
the wii version could end up outselling the HD versions combined when all is said and done... the Wii version will sell well all year, and the HD version will sell well, but not as good.
Smeags (on 26 December 2008)
I got this for Christmas, and it's a lot of fun!

Unfortunately the drum peripheral was broken when I took it out of the box... so I'll have to return it to get a new one. :-(
Omega_Phazon_Pirate. (on 25 December 2008)
Wow Wii version selling the most?
Wetcoaster (on 23 December 2008)
Great game, but Rock Band 2 is better IMO.

If you got the complete band kit I'd also suggest picking up a copy of Rock Band 2 since the instruments are compatible.
Kenology (on 21 December 2008)
Awesome. Another million seller!
Zucas (on 21 December 2008)
That's why Activision is shipping the most for the Wii. Geez what a 7th week. Almost 300,000 WW in it.
MontanaHatchet (on 20 December 2008)
The sales are incredible, just look at week 7. Just...wow. Crazy.
bigjon (on 19 December 2008)
this version is dominating all this year... GO WII!!!!

Its funny to think back and remember everyone thought that GH3 on wii would not sell because it was 3rd party.... LOLZ
supermario128 (on 19 December 2008)
I still can't find the band set.
kopstudent89 (on 16 December 2008)
yeah i didnt expect the version to take a huge lead early on, but it looks like PS2 owners shifted to the Wii version, plus 360 has rockband 2 which the Wii hasnt got yet
Voltaire (on 14 December 2008)
Theres another Million seller on Wii. Quite a bit ahead of the other versions too. I think its about .4 mill ahead of the 360 version.
kopstudent89 (on 14 December 2008)
severly undertracked! Awesome numbers for the Wii version :)
Zucas (on 14 December 2008)
Awesome and another million seller for Wii.
bigjon (on 13 December 2008)
this is like deja vu... this game is sold out everywhere (GHIII Wii was a sellout too)
11ht11 (on 13 December 2008)
million seller!!!
Zucas (on 13 December 2008)
Well about 200k according to NPD in its first month and 450k in the second. So at least 650k in US alone and another 50k considering the rest of Americas. So 700k at the least in NA. So should be platinum by the time American sales come in. I had a feeling we weren't keeping up with this one. Top Wii brands won't falter if the others do haha. Just doesn't work that way with the large mainstream base.
bigjon (on 11 December 2008)
over 1 million by now with the VGC undertracking.
Chrizum (on 11 December 2008)
Undertracked in the US (should be about 85k up)
Smeags (on 11 December 2008)
Mine is nestled under the ol' Christmas tree. Hurry Santa hurry! :-(
EdEN (on 11 December 2008)
Anyone having problems with an over-sensitive Drum Pedal?

I can't play with my foot pressed on the pedal because it gives of a false-positive even when not kicking and almost always registers as a double-kick on singles (which leaves me on an eternal 3-star performance due to no combo chances).
Derixs (on 03 December 2008)
I cant wait to play it.... mine is sitting under the tree. Damn you Christmas!
bigjon (on 01 December 2008)
will be best selling version this year. : ).
Zucas (on 28 November 2008)
Black Friday week will show huge sales for this title in America. Over 100k at least.
GranTurismoHelperMax (on 28 November 2008)
hehe alrdy sold more then 360 version. Hoping to pick this game up in Holidays.
CONMAN15 (on 27 November 2008)
I'd bet anyone that this is going to be the best selling version. Its already beating the 360 version by a fair bit, week to week in both regions.
Hyperion (on 27 November 2008)
There's a solid chance that this version will sell best. I wonder what Activision and other companies think about that.
Vil3 (on 20 November 2008)
this game havent come out in all part's off "others" yet...are bouying it on the swedish launch tomorow
TopCat8 (on 20 November 2008)
big jump in "others" for the second week. That's encouraging.
arsenal009 (on 17 November 2008)
I wonder if they'll bother releasing it in japan after GH3 had abysmal sales there.
kopstudent89 (on 08 November 2008)
wow bummer... i forgot about the increased priced tag and the Rock band 2 competition. This will probably be best sellin version, but not as impressive as last year's numbers though.
CONMAN15 (on 02 November 2008)
Its an amazing game. The online is great. I've been playing it for hours everyday.
Zucas (on 27 October 2008)
I would have but friends made me play Xlive and then english paper. Will continue tomorrow though haha.
Maynard_Tool (on 26 October 2008)
Damn, i've been playing the game since i got it. Awesome!!!! This would last forever. Amazing game
Zucas (on 26 October 2008)
Launch day buy and just played it for an hour or so and I love it.
kopstudent89 (on 21 October 2008)
This will beat last year's PS2 version to be the best sellin guitar hero on a console.
Zucas (on 21 October 2008)
6 days now... can't wait.
Smeags (on 18 September 2008)
I can't wait to rock to some user created Nintendo tracks. :-D

However, my poor wallet is shedding tears just thinking about the game...
--OkeyDokey-- (on 11 September 2008)
I'd buy this if it had The Final Countdown.

That's how lame I am.
slicktrick (on 22 June 2008)
One of the top 5 Wii games of 2008 easily.
rudyrsr8 (on 19 June 2008)
I just read the preview on IGN and I want this game now! lol Just hope the price is reasonable.
perculator (on 09 June 2008)
This game will be awesome
