They should have named this "Wii Shooting"

To avoid copyright infringement they could call it "We Shoot"

Anyways, this game sin't selling well because it's a new IP and it recived varied reviews. The game is fun but in terms of sales it flopped.

The story behind Conduit looks to be just another third party footnote two months into release. Unless Sega opts to re-launch the game for the holidays with renewed advertising (unlikely), the only significant additional sales will be from drastic price cutting (at $20-30) making it far from the success story many were hyping.

300k sales on a 50$ pricetag maybe... but seeing that the price will drop off sharply from this point on, I recon a 500k LT shipment is needed at least to break even if the budget was indeed 10 million.

The games budget was reportedly $10 Million so I think including retail margins, the game needs to sell 300k.

Of course their Quantum3 engine was included in the figure and is being used in more of their titles.

@boblafollette - I don't really think there was any hype saying it was going to revolutionize the fps genre, I expected it to be a decent wii fps with an effortful online offering, it delivered for me on that front. Despite all the bugs I still enjoy the game, but HVS needs to invest some time in testing their future games.

@Kai Master: Three was hype but it was definitely not as big as we all thought it would be. Also, it was really just the internet that had hype, the press wasn't that big on it.

Really, it was mostly Wii owners that just wanted a good Wii FPS (that isn't a port).

Alone In The Dark, Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop and FaceBreaker K.O. Party is in the dust. Next week it's time for Battalion Wars 2 to be in the dust. In a few weeks or so it will be time for Okami, Manhunt 2. Later on MadWorld, NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams and Medal of Honor Heroes 2. The list will go on if The Conduit can do the same.

People thinking this is going to explode in sales come the holidays are nuts. This game has no hook, no personality that separates it from the pack. The only thing it has going for it is that it's a decent FPS for the Wii, which is a rarity. There is no hype for this game amongst the masses, and it'll never sell like people think. If this thing has great legs the max it'll see lifetime is 500k.

Maybe The Conduit is just going to reach 1m as slow as Lego Batman: The Videogame or a bit slower. Like 1-5-2 years after release.

The Conduit should sell 100-200k from now to end of November and could get a Christmas boost of 100k or more from December to January. That could put it at over 500k at the start of 2010 if all goes well, slowly building up to something just like House of the Dead games, Lego Batman, Sonic Unleashed and so on. But it could as well end at 400-700k.

Other than controls "The Conduit" Offers:
Great AI (At High and Severe difficulty).
14 hours of gameplay on single player mission on High difficulty.
A Variety of online game styles.
Weapon damage that is not too high or too low for online play.
Good variety of weapons. Unlike Half-Life.
Voice chat is easy to manage. It is very easy to set it up so only my friends can talk to me. Unlike other FPS. I have to listen to every whiny child in the game.
At least part of the game lacks health regeneration. (It is a start. Maybe the sequel will have none.)
Easy to use cheats for single player mission. This is not an uncommon feature, but I like it.
I have seen games with much less to offer receive low 8s. Call of Duty 3 for example received an 8.8 on

Can't wait for last weeks numbers to come in. I want to see what Others has to show after it's adjusted down.

I ve received my copy 2 days ago. The game quie disappoionted me first, alot of aliasing, some bugs, online broken...Then next sessions were better and better. I ve set the controls and now it's perfect.The visuals are really impressive from times to times, weapons effects are really nice and lights and blur are not common in this level of quality on wii. However, aliasing on my HD ready plasma screen is still a big issue, above all in level like the airport. Some passage design in the levels are repetitive (sewers, airport, library...). The end of the second level with the ennemies always respawning till you destruct the conduits is frsutarting by its overdifficulty in easy mode whereas the difficulty during the level is simple.
But overall I find the single player experience really good for someone who is looking for retro ala Golden Eye level.
The online mode is really fun...when you managed to get connected but once you are in the game, every new party comes quickly. Moreover, there is alot of modes and every one can vote.
To conclude, this is by far the best FPS on wii technically, for its gameplay and fun.

It's sad the sales are so weak at the moment. Maybe it will be better after the summer holidays and got some serious legs but this is a reality, the today sales are deceiving.

question that has to be asked is what is "good sales"? Is it a game that makes a profit? 1 million sold? 1/2 million sold? And how long do we give a game to reach our own "good sales" target? 1 month? 2months? 6 months?

These are terrible sales, no way around it. I don't care about a Conduit 2 but I was hoping this game would be incentive for other developers to step up. Rather its just become another reason for developers to not bother.

The Conduit isnt done selling so that is a very early claim. Plus we know that Conduit 2 and Grinder are coming to Wii.

AND COD WAW Wii has sold 1.2 mil. I feel confident that although MW2 isnt coming COD7 is thanks to Treyarch (makers of COD WAW Wii).

I'm anxious to see how it does with a full week of sales in "others".

The friends of mine buying a copy said they haven't seen any marketing for the game and 2 are casual players in their late 40s. Military backgrounds so they thought that was cool playing the game with the Wii controls. This game has a lot of potential.

Wait a minute...

I just realised there's actually very little difference between NPD and VGChartz.

The NPD's month covers June, which means that it covers the same period as VGC's 1sst week and the 1st day of the 2nd weel. assuming by the second week all days sell 1/7 of the weekly amount then VGC puts the game at 94469+8850
ie 103 318 For the Americas
multiply by 0.9 to get USA
92 986 for an approximation of VGChartz data for the same location and time.

Now NPD had it at 71 000, giving a difference of 22k. So VGC overtracked by 11k and NPD undertracked by 11k So the VGC data was correct within uncertainties if given an uncertainty of 15%. That's pretty good

My control is near perfection now.... I find that unusually the most satisfying weapon in this game is the stanrard pistol, I mean the shotgun is great too, but they usually are one of the weapon highlights of shooting games, but standard pistols are usually the more dull weapons. (not necessarily all handguns are dull, but whatever pistol an FPS starts you off with is usually dull)


Also in my last playthrough I started using the SMAW more... I had generally avoided it the first two times as I like a good wide open space with rocket launchers usually, but having it ready when you open a door onto a long corridor, and firing a rocket down the length to whichever sorry individual might be stood in the middle is very satisfying.

I think I will increase my shrieker use too, another one I avoided a somewhat as explosives don't generally go well in crowded areas.

Also yes... I don't understand a lot of reviewers complaints. The graphics are brilliant, I will agree the art direction is a bit bland but it is hardly a game breaker. The voice acting is excellent, the music is good in game.... and great for the menu and credit sequence (though this could just be that I get to hear the music more without concentrating on shooting)
There is nothing wrong with the story, and I particularly like the radio's that you can tune in about the place to listen to the media's take on what is happening.


I really only have a few minor complaints:
-no toggle for crouch
-I prefer being able to hoard weapons... carrying only 2 at once is too much "realism" in my view.
-I wish the running speed was faster, I turning it up to 100 but still feel a little sluggish when compared to how lighting fast I can turn on the spot.
-the above problem could be caused by the momentum effect that seems to have been added to running, where if you run full pelt forwards and then tilt the stick backwards the character slows down first before accellerating backwards... it is not too noticable but it is another "realism" thing I am not keen on.

I have tweaked a good bit more... made the dead zone tighter horizontally, and I did have the vertical camera set to "always with deadzone" before, which meant I had to re-adjust it to the centre after using stairs... but I changed it and so that you can look up and down, but it returns to normal if you point at the centre... I sped up the turning a bit too.

I can now say the controls are better than Metroid Prime 3 by a decent margin (before I would have said MP3 was better) but I think I can get a bit more tweaking done asI get used to it... it seems as I get used to a turning speed I can increase a bit and not get dizzy.

I agree about the reviewers knocking this game. I just finished the single player game last night and I feel completely satisfied with my $50 purchase. The graphics were better than the NES days so I'm happy there. The controls were superb for me with the factory settings (just tweaked the turning adjustment for quicker turning). IR shooting can not be compared to a stick. It's just better. The story was great and the voices were great. It was all great.

I just don't understand the expectations of some of these people that consider themselves core gamers. I can find enjoyment and satisfaction with any great game. I'm a core gamer since early 80s. Some kid saying the graphics suck and the FPS aspect sucks is NOT any type of a core gamer. US Old timers are the core. Hope others found this just as satisfying as I did because I'm really stoked about The Grinder and will now be impatient to know the release date of The Conduit 2.

Thank you High Voltage for created a terrific game for the Wii. Hope more will follow your lead and step up the gaming options for Wii owners to have some more terrific games like this available to play.

Last but not least, the following may not be an indication of anything, but I fear that the game being on day 1 in the UK around no. 80 in Amazon UK's "Bestsellers in PC & Video Games" (and now already below 100) does not bode well at all...

Oddly enough my main complaint at the game at the moment is controls, I don't buy into all this complaining about the story/graphics wank... I have played the first two levels so far and the story is no better nor worse than any other action oriented game I have played.

I have yet to find a control setup that fits me though... I will hae to play around more with the options (I have not spent that much time with it yet)

I suspect when I fit the controls to suit me my only real complaints about the game will be that crouch can't be set to toggle, and that I am not keen on the 2 weapons at one time thing... I like to build a collection, I don't care how unrealistic it is to be 1 man carrying a whole platoons worth of weapons.

has sold twice as many copies as World at War did in it first two weeks, and as for the respawing enemies unlike other games that have were they just keep showing up this game you can stop it by destoring the portals so people should really stop complaining about the respawns

The game is good, barebones but good, it does not try to encompass a lot of new things nor reinvent the wheel, it is good looking solid and fun, both single and multi, a must buy

I think the legacy for Conduit 1 will be "solid but unspectacular." Gameplay and sales can both be described as successful but not a giant hit. Hopefully as they grow experience in developing this type of game their product will be better as well.

Good news for high voltage: this will no doubt turn them a profit.

played for about 4 hours today and I have to say I am really enjoying this. The single player is enjoyable and I like the sci-fi story, but multi player is the real attraction here! On the whole the game reminds me of Perfect Dark, but the multi-player reminds me of the old school Unreal Tournament for some reason.

The 100,000 figure was a very rough guesstimate, I believe the delay with publishing the sales data for the week ending July 27th is due to their having a rough time estimating Conduit sales numbers.

I am also interested in the sales of this game. It's easy to say that this game should have a better first week than the 3 other sega games (madworld/sonic black knight/HotD over kill). I'm going to say 65-85 units first week, which is pretty good for a third party wii release. I'm hoping this game sells well, so more developers will flock to this genre.

The best true first person shooter on the wii (Metriod 3 is a better game, but not true fps), but is that really saying much? Let's face it, there really isn't much competition. I played it for roughly 30 mins on campaign mode, and like 5 minutes online. My first thought was that this is was over hyped. The controls are nice, but i was expecting a lot better visuals. The blackground seems repetitive and dull. It doesn't really offer anything new to the table, other than the smooth motion controls. Good wii shooter, but mediocre compared to shooters from the other consoles. Multiplayer wasn't bad, i can see how it could be fun. I would have played it longer but i had to do something, and just haven't picked it up again since

I agree with theconduit's posting. You are definitely similar to me with gaming. It seems that those that truly appreciated and enjoyed the Original Red Steel game are the veteran gamers that enjoy a great game. I loved being able to shoot at the enemy with my gun held sideways. That was a different approach that I'd never seen before in a game. And while I'm thinking of it, I need to call my friend and get his copy of perfect dark so I can finish playing through that one of these weekends when I take time out from the Conduit game.

First off let me start by saying that I was slightly let down by this game.

It was made to be the game that launched the Wii into hardcore games

But whilst having not quite lived up to that it is a great game that the Wii desperately needs.

I am a huge fan of Wii FPS controls an am one of the few people who liked how Red Steel controled.

I have been playing COD WAW online for the Wii for ages and need a new game to get my online fix.

Hopefully people will realise that the Wii is perfect for FPS controls.
