This "summary" is getting excesivly long. If someone who actually played the game would shorten it, it would be appriciated. Any additions that make this summary longer will probably be rejected.

Also, we don't need to add user comments to the summary, user comments can be placed on the games wall.

Well this number are all wrong. In december 07, Capcom said they sold more than 300K copies.

The game came out only in January in EUrope and it was a good success.

So you can had Europe sales plus 6 months sales in Japan and USA, the game is DEFINITLY more than 600K

Capcom's expectations were like 200k, but now this game is going beyond 350k. The legs aren't that great, but for a new IP in a VERY niche genre, this is great. It gives 3rd parties hope. 400k by June twen-TAY! (At least I hope so)

Zack and Wiki should hold steady selling 7-10k a week for quite some time. As people play it, discover how awsome it is, then force others to do the same. It just takes longer when it has a bad name, and no marketing.

You have to look at games sales like movie sales. For a movie, it's almost never about the first when out. Movies almost never make up their budget their first weekend out. So, it's all about the movies legs (how well it can sustain sales). Cloverfield had a great opening weekend but then sales hit the gutter because it was all fanboys rushing to see it right away.

In the case of z/w, while the sales may have dipped a bit for it's 4th week, it's still yet to see a 50% drop off in weekly sales. US sales may be low, but the game always manages a couple thousand sales a week. As long as the UK and everyone else can continue that trend, z/w will be a nice, modest hit (stupid japan, not doing its part).

If total Z & W sales do reach 300k it would prompt Capcom into making Z & W 2 considering the most expensive part of the process (creating a new universe and establishing a new brand) has already been taken care of.

All in all I thinl Z & W will do 500k worlwide by december 31st, 2008 thanks to a lower price and an August re-release.

Somebody already tried doing a "Buy Zack and Wiki Campaign", but it obviously didn't work so great. Probably because it was web-based, and most gamers aren't exactly frequenters of gaming sites. Really, the best you can do is word-of-mouth. Both online and off. It worked for Katamari Damacy, it may well work for Z&W too.

Hmmm... anyone have any ideas on how to spur North American sales for the game? Since Capcom basically left the game for dead (no advertising).

Working this weekend (Friday, Saturday AND Sunday) so I won't be able to pick it up until next week :(

Hopefully it sells more in EU than in America as NOE said they pushed its release back so as to give it more exposure.

You're purchase counts as far as moving software, I live in the sf bay area and shop at fry's all the time. I don't know if ioi usese fry's as a major retailer cause they are much smaller a chain than the major ones.

I just bought the game yesterday, and I have to say that it definitely lives up to the height. I love the puzzles, quite a few of them actually made me think! I just hope that the sequel sells better.

(I was wondering, I bought this game at a store called Fry's Electronics. I was wondering, and this might sound dumb, does my purchase count if I didn't buy the game at Gamespot/Wal-Mart/ToyRus/etc.?)

Capcom gave their releaselist to stores in America yesterday.
4 new games were named.
Including Zack and Wiki 2... ...
So start gettin' excited! (And yes Neos, Januari 8th, when Zack and Wikiis released in the EU, we will turn it into a profit ...)

I guess it only needs like 150k Ww to make a profit... Which it's gonna top!
I guess 300k wouldn't be bad!

@ Montana - outside of IGN and a few other sites, this game didn't have hype even on the internet. In fact that's why sites like IGN were plugging it so hard. Because they knew there was so little hype out there.

Infact, despite the game being out for 3 weeks and getting absolutely rave reviews from the sites that cover it, the game still doesn't even have 20 reviews on Gamerankings. This game's sales proves that the Internet needs to get it's ass in gear and help sell this amazing game!

Everybody who has this game (including me) raves about it, but the name and lack of marketing seems to turn people off. Their loss, it is a great game.

Bought this for my roomate's birthday. It's an awesome game.

And I was never really a PC gamer, so the (real) Adventure genre is quite a change of pace for me.

You are definately not half way through. Each puzzle gets significantly harder and longer as they go. I actually used platinum tickets on the Fire boss level! Of course, it was a huge huge huge mistake. But I can't take that back now.

If you like puzzle games, this is definitely fun and challenging. It is also very humorous. It is not action oriented, although there are several puzzles throughout the game that require you to be in certain places at certain times. We play this together as a family, with one person controlling and the others in the family suggesting things to do by pointing with their remotes and drawing on the screen, like a telestrator.

Budget priced make this game all the more appealing. The box claims 30 hours of gameplay. I'm at 9, I think about halfway through, but stuck. I can see several areas of replay value within the game (other challenges in the levels that get unlocked when you complete it), so 30 hours is probably about right.
