This is much better! Maybe Ubisoft will be able to break even. Its too bad teh video game industry doesn thave it as good as the movie or book industry yet. Movies continue to make money for ever, books keep coming out again and again, but games come out and that is it! Im happy they have new ways of re making money finally, but some of these smaller games need to be VC or PS3 downloads or something later on. Cursed mountain company out of business, boy and his blob stopped being made. Gamer choice nintendo because you are just kicking 3rd parties. Ofcourse after the years of them dissing your consoles they deserve it. But you got them back! Now its time to fix them!!!

Ubisoft pretty much decided to drop the game months ago. They only expected 500k units to be sold and many wondered why. Well now you know. They knew they werent going to push it and it would sell poorly for it.

They seem quite happy with the sales though.

@drakesfortune Nintendo monopolize the sales? Are you serious? Just check the VGChartz Wii Top Sellers and count how many third-party titles sold +1M mark. You'll have a big surprise.

Ubisoft really said they use their Wii/DS profits to fund PS3/360 titles, here it is:

http://www.cubed3.com/news/8444/2/

Ubisoft put major effort on Just Dance's advertising and not on Red Steel 2 at all. They can't say "hardcore games don't sell on Wii" because this bullshit is an invention from the anti-Wii fanboys which seems like you are part of it, considering your nick is from a PS3 game and you have their cliched argument.

@dryon I really hope that post was sarcastic, because if you read it any other way, it sounds like a raving mad man. Sorry, no game company makes a game and spends a lot of money on it, and then hopes it fails to make a point about the Wii in order to support PS360 fanboy arguments. Seriously. Seriously! I think every dev out there would like nothing more than to find a way to tap into the Wii audience and actually make some dough on the number one selling console. Nintendo just monopolizes the software sales though.

@CitizenOfVerona It's because Ubisoft it's part of the anti-Wii biased third-parties trying to expose the Wii as console for casual and party games. If they advertise a game like Red Steel 2 and get good sales, it could be used as an argument against the anti-Wii fanboys spreading this idea. Ubisoft said once they use their Wii profits to fund their PS3/X360 projects (they aren't the only ones), they'll use their Just Dance profits to do it. Lucky is that Monster Hunter Tri came in the right time to show how wrong they are.

@CitizenVerona, look at it this way. Ubisoft and Sega seem to be making core games when their casual games do better on Wii. Isn't that ultimately a benefit, even if they don't sell?

And meanwhile, HOTD succes, Rabbids platformer a relative success, Conduit Sequel and a few others proves without a doubt that its possible.

I say keep Just Dance coming. Because if JD makes as much money as MSO then they're able to take more risks.

This game flopped because..

-It isnt as good as some people want to believe, good games sell no matter what

-It wasnt made thinking about any market, its a first person action game with motion controls, most of hardcore gamers are still against motion controls, and first person action games are quite odd anyway, ubisoft took a great risk and they know it

-Lack of advertisement, polishment and overall game investment, the game is a typical case of a great idea wasted with bad level design and repetitiveness, just like the Conduit all over again

As a result Red Steel 2 is a niche game and it wont sell 500k on any console, good luck on Red Steel 3 ubisoft, taking small steps one at a time, you are probably closer on creating the best sword fighting game on the wii than nintendo is

Yes I see that because casual gamers are not gonna spend money on stuff they are not sure about. They go to a friends house and try out just dance or wii sports and they say hey this is fun so they buy it. These games selling for 10 dollars now at stores have no risk in buying them. WHat do I care if cursed mountain a game I have never heard of sucks if I spend 10 dollars on it. Surprise it is kinda fun, just not a big blockbuster game that is constantly fun. SO anyways to your post.....ok yeah I know that about all core gamers....um did you say anything I didn't say? Im saying the wii is not owned by core gamers it is owned by people who are not going to buy 1 million copies of madworld or that dead space wii game.

@spurgeonryan, there are numerous why, apart from "core" audience arguments, PS360 games sell more.
- More advertising, more financial support for budget and marekting of said expensive games.
- More games are online, therefore you can't torrent them.
- Better graphics make core market more inclined to see the value in the purchase.
- Demos
- Frontloading
- The tendency for core gamers to spend much more when buying games. (just look at COD3 and WAW sales this week on Wii, now theyre cheaper people are buying them)

But NONE OF THIS will permeate your brick wall so i dont know why i wasted my time saying it.
