I'm so happy this game is an evergreen title. It's raelly a great Mario game, my favorite so far. What is so cool is that they are going to do even better with multiplayer next time!

What is important is the fact that this is selling without an addon-on (Wii wheel) which (in most people's mind) is the main reason why Wii Fit, Mario Kart o Wii Sports are selling (I think that's not completely true)...this game is selling great, probably will fall under Mario Kart's sales in the graphic, but still will sell great through the whole year and this week Other's sales mean that it's right now the main system seller, so no problem for 20m.

It's sold more every single week than Mario Kart Wii. MKWii had a similar fast drop off, it just happened a lot faster than with NSMB. So while NSMB is dropping now it's still to reach the point where MKWii levelled off in it's first year.

@Killergran
Considering the game is at 12.69m, to arrive at 30m in the next two years it will need around an average 160k per week, and even if we consider the holiday boost, still it won't be easy, especially during the summer. I think it's more likely it reaches 20m before 2010 ends than 30m LTD, but we'll see, a bundle could change all of this. Others is ruining very much this game, it will soon be the best selling Wii game in Japan, and in Americas it has crazy legs, while in others is selling poorly compared to the other two countries.
Message | Report
Killergran posted 15/03/2010, 01:17
Actually Demotruk, NSMBWii is showing a tendency to have much weaker legs than Wii Fit, especially in Others. Due to the incredibly strong opening, I thought that it would leg it out and sell around over 200k most weeks this year.

But it's still falling and even if it doesn't fall down under 100k per month it will still be less than I had anticipated. 30 million might be out of reach for this title, unless it stops dropping as quickly.

Demotruk posted 14/03/2010, 02:08
I assume you're being ironic Killergran. Look at how it's tracking versus Wii Fit and Mario Kart Wii. It's selling more than they were at this point in it's lifetime, it had a much much bigger first holiday and first few weeks, and look where they ended up.

New Super Mario Bros Wii is a terrific stronghold that resists to attacks coming from Bioshock, Mass Effect, Heavy Rain and God of War

ME2 is almost out of charts while NSMBW is still nearly at the top, Bioshock will see the same drop, Heavy Rain is not so great in sales, only GOW3 and Final Fantasy will hurt a little.

Don't worry, you don't have to add "IMHO" into every possible place. Your opinion is shared by many, including me. While this game definitely doesn't deserve less sales, SMG deserves much more. But however, quality doesn't always guarantee great sales. (Just look at Madworld, Muramasa, Little King's Story and many other great 3rd party Wii games...)

The reason you got bored of this faster because it really does not bring anything groundbreaking to you. Galaxy was groundbreaking, there was nothing like it before and fascinated people when they played. IMHO, Galaxy deserves better sales than this. Not saying this is a bad game, but just that Galaxy is better. IMHO.

I don't know why you say it doesn't have the legs of Sports Resort. At 10 weeks it looks like it's tracking nearly the same.

If it stays above 200k a week, it should reach 20m at week 45. That's half the time it took Mario Kart to reach 20m.

Right now a bundle is not necessary, but maybe for this Christams Nintendo could bundle Wii with some of the top games (SMG2, NSMBW, MH3, Xenoblade or The last Story, Zelda Wii!!): that would help the Wii in having another great holiday, and also some extra cash from software.

The Wii is the best selling console of this generation. NSMBWii is on it's way to being the fastest selling non-bundled game ever, and possibly the best selling non-bundled game ever. Why exactly would Nintendo want to bundle this? It doesn't make any sense to bundle a game that's making you several million dollars a week with a console that doesn't need a sales boost.

Great sales in America continue but no surprise. Starting to finally get bigger shipments of this game at the Gamestop I work at but selling out of those as well (although not as fast). Were getting shipments of about 10-15 but now about 20 at a time.

Also I think what we've noticed for others is even though it isn't a colossal hit in the UK (although still big) the rest of the European and Other regions it seems to be that big hit haha. Can't really judge the NSMB Wii sales totally off UK charts which is unusual for most big Wii games. But NSMB Wii will still continue to sell quite well in the UK for a long time.

The motion controls are kind of annoying. Especially in level 7-3 (I think) where you have to move the platforms left to right.

Sometimes I move the controller slightly to the side mid-jump and the platform flies from under Mario's feet. Other times I accidentally spin attack while on a platform and it moves while I spiral downward to my death >_>

You know I had a feeling we were a little low on the Americas sales but man that is just crazy. 8.61 million in 6 weeks (only 4 in Japan). It has already outsold Galaxy. Just colossal.

Wow!!! World wide NSMBW has now passed the Xbox360 version of Modern Warfare 2! That is insane!!! In North American sales only it just has 1.5 mil to go since they stand at 4.18 and 5.73. Crazy!

Online retailers and the stores around me are still having a hard time keeping this in stock. North American numbers should be sustained at very high levels for at least a few more weeks.

Week 5 will definetly be over 1 million with Japan numbers so it will have sold over 1million for 6 week's straight.

Have any other games done that before?

Amazing game. I had the most fun playing with friends when our initial team effort deteriorated to throwing each other into thwomps and pits of lava. Nothing says "fun" like throwing a friend off a cliff.

Modern Warfare 2 on 360 is 8.4 million
NSMB on Wii is 8.2 million

Only 200,000 units to gain. Next week Mario will pull ahead.

My brother got this for Christmas and I played a fair bit of it before he returned home back East.

Is it wrong that it was most fun when we were dying a lot? Because with four people there were many mishaps. =P When there was only 3 of us we were beating levels easily...wasn't as fun.

@ Majin

I think a 7th consecutive week is a definite possibility. The shortages reported in the Japan preview show that demand is still high and will most likely be up once more shipments come in!

@ Majin

The Japan preview predicts only 200k this week due to shortages. I think a 7th consecutive week over a million is out of the question now.

All I wish is it will break the 20th Million in its life-time sales.
Go NSMB Wii Go GO GO.

They talked to Super Mario creator who said back when this was created they "rolled back" the complexity of Mario Games to allow more people to understand and pick them up instantly/play them. Instead they created a side-scrolling masterpiece that sold so far 28 million copies. Of course that was going to happen.

Nintendo says 29.51m as of september 30.

Where one game's overtracked, this one quite heavily undertracked. Remember, can't have digital sales.
