Default Wii dominates Jan charts. TP goes platinum

http://wii.ign.com/articles/766/766501p1.html

Hilariously enough the PS2 is selling better than the PS3.

The Wii sold 2x the units of the PS3.

Zelda Twilight Princess sales are up to 1.1 million in America giving it platinum status.

That's only in America. Worldwide, it's around 3-4 million.

edit: plus you have another million in worldwide sales from the gamecube version

3 Months to sell over a million, thats not good at all for a title of such magnitude. Thats like the poor performance FFXII had in the states upon its release... guess the market is getting tired of the long running series...

You can spin it anyway you want man but in all honesty im sure you would agree with me that a title like TP should have sold far more considering how long its been delayed and its hype. I expected it to have broken the 1 million mark at launch...

Hmmm.... lets see the Wii has sold about 4.7 million units. Of that 4.7 million user base 1.1 Million Zeldas have sold. I would consider that extremely awesome. Especially considering the the 360 has a 10.5 million user base and has sold 2.5 million copies of Gears of War.

When the game is considered to be a system seller (aka many people getting a Wii just for the game) I would have expected it to be more of a 2:1 ratio rather then 4:1

Remember also that when compared to the X360 the Wii has far fewer titles to choose from, I would think Zelda to be one of the first people would go for since theres no Mario right now so it would be the largest game released for the console to date.

Looks like Wii Sports stole some of its thunder...

If you look at the worldwide sales it is a system seller. How many Wii's have been sold in America? Maybe 2 million? That's greater than a 2:1 ratio.

Not only that, but on launch I remember a report came out saying that Zelda had something like a 90% penetration rate.

Tiki, you're not getting the whole story from Magus. 4.7 million is how many Wiis have sold worldwide. 1.1 million is how many Zeldas have sold in America. So the ratio is more like 2:1.

Either way is fantastic IMO.
