Pikmin was the runaway smash hit on the GC and this is just an extension of it.. one of Nintendo's newest and best franchises!

One person in the 90+ comments says it might reach 1.5 or 2 millions and now some are suddenly saying: '''No way is this passing 2 millions''. Like it's a bad thing and it didn't meet expectations. What's that all about ?

Only if it sells 1+ million, it's great for this franchise and similar to previous entries while being on a lower selling console.

At the way this goes, it should stop at 1.05 m by 2015 and maybe 1.14m with digital sales. If we can trust VGC numbers, and my power of predicting is correct.

It doesn't matter if the game doesn't sell 2M units, we should just care if the game becomes profitable for Nintendo. Maybe it just needed to sell 500K, maybe it needs to sell 3M, but we don't really know. I just want more entries in the series. It's actually selling quite good considering Wii U sales.

Only 13,000 this week, but sales are still ahead of NSMBU. It should bottom out at a few thousand a week before the holidays raise it back up. This should silently sell for years to come, much like many of the earlier Wii and DS games, not to mention 3DS games like Nintendogs+cats, Layton 5, Street Fighter, and Pilotwings.

lol You really don't want to understand anything. Every time NPD releases their reports, Nintendo comments on these reports by giving us actual digital sales. How do you keep missing the point?? And the fact that even I didn't know the Wii U supports SD cards is exactly my point. Most consumers don't know that either.

You know digital because of NPD? NPD doesn't track digital or all retail stores You also don't seem to know Wii U supports SD cards. BTW 16gigs vs 1tb.. Not like you are paying more for the same amount of storage.. Clearly you are a very misinformed person to keep on saying things you cant back up and are flat out wrong about.

For all your claims of "educated" you seriously lack any knowledge of what you are talking about. Never heard of Wii U cards? Didn't know SDs and HDD were supporter. Think its easier to plug in an SD then plus in a USB? Think NPD tracks all retail and digital? Kid you seriously haven't gotten one single thing right on this subject

@Meret: Oh I had never heard of digital download cards for the Wii U. But you can't compare a handheld and a console. Animal Crossing had a 80% retail, 20% digital ratio in the US compared to NSMBU at 95% retail, 5% digital. It's expected of handhelds to have stronger digital sales. You can just buy a SD card and then download stuff on it. It's easy and convenient whereas on the Wii U people who bought the basic model can't even download most games because they don't have enough HDD space.

Nintendo has to be happy with this. Reached out to 9% of the entire install base. 115k isn't too bad. And while a 70% increase in hardware sales is nice, it shows Pikmin wasn't much of a system seller. It shows most people who bought it already owned a Wii U.

Glad to see Nintendo go over 10k in a week with the Wii U, but they need to put out software that will sell systems. Not cater to the 1.3 million who already own it.

" In the US, the ratio for NSMBU is like 95% retail and 5% digital" And so what? If u remember, in Japan, for example, only 3-5% of NSMB2 sold digitally. And Animal Crossing: New Leaf - more than 30%. So... make conclusions only by Mario examples is kinda wrong, lol Different games can sell differently in digital format. Pikmin 3 had great cross-promotion with W101 in Europe in digital space.

There are no digital download cards in Japan for the Wii U the way there are for the 3DS. VGC won't track digital sales because there are really no way to do that.
