Nintendo: GoldenEye 007 sales show core titles “can and do perform well on Wii”

Nintendo have stated their belief that any title has the potential to sell well on Wii, as long as it is actively supported by the publisher.

Such comments have been made as the company gears up to release a core-focused games in the run up to Christmas, having begun such a strategy earlier this month with the release of GoldenEye 007.

The line-up of releases continued with Call of Duty: Black Ops last week, with Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit set for November 19th followed by Disney’s Epic Mickey on November 26th and Donkey Kong Country Returns on December 3rd.

There has been much discussion in regards to third-party publishers being able to crack the Wii market, yet this is something that Nintendo strongly denies.

“The sales of GoldenEye show that these titles can and do perform well on Wii,” commented Rob Saunders, Head of Communications for Nintendo UK. “The idea that Wii owners are only after smaller mini-game compilations or first-party titles isn’t true. A good quality title, supported well by both publisher and retail, has just as much chance of performing well as any Nintendo title.”

  1. I wish they had provided some sort of numbers, based on the sale tracker didn’t look like the game was doing that hot.
