Points of Interest:

01. Solid debut for Tenchu
02. I still don't understand why people like pokemon
03. If Nintendo puts more games on the player's choice line, they will sell. Look at all the PS2 GH's on there.
04. People realized $20 for DMC is better than $50 for DMC2. Capcom ruined that series.
05. NFL 2K3 sales surge on $9.99 bargain bin pricing. Sega should release all of their sports games for $9.99 this year so they can atually sell.

Hardware sales should be available shortly. All this info has been released two weeks later than usual for unknown reasons. Maybe Nintendo saw a huge spike in sales with the release of Zelda and wanted more accurate numbers.

Also, Vice City is nearly at 7 million copies. By the time it hits $20 in the distant future, I think it will have outsold all the big N64 games to become the biggest title of the 3D generation. I attribute this success to Love Fist.

The highest seller for Xbox in March was Halo?
Does that include the Halo/Amped bundle that is being sold here?

13 xbox games in the top 100, only 5(or 6 I might have miss counted) gc games

It's sad to see how poorly wsb 2k3, is selling compared to mvp baseball. Wsb is such a superior product, but it's selling like crap. Guess it's because sega hasn't marketed it? I dunno.

I highly doubt it will go anywhere past 1.2-1.4 mil. Thats what I see as its stopping point..

Nintendo advertised the hell out of it, even months before release, on TV, Websites, Magazines, in-store promos as well as in sunday-ads (Best buy, target, circuit city, etc.) for several weeks.

The big selling point that made it sell so many, IMO, was the free bonus disc offer. I reserved 4 copies (2 for me, 2 for my brother), picked up 1 copy of the game. If it didnt include the bonus disc, I wouldnt have it yet (I'm not a big zelda fan, but picked it up because the bonus discs, if it didnt have it, I probably would've picked it up later (I have so many games to play in the meantime ).

Not to mention Zelda has a much smaller audiance [*COUGH*nerds*COUGH*] that pretty much love the series, and preordered it months in advance, or got it on day 1. I dont know of any casual gamers who are gonna be looking for a game, and pick up zelda.. there will definately be some, but not enough to expect the sales numbers your expecting (2 mil in a month).

I expect the sales for april to be about 400k, then just slowly drop off, averaging about 50-80k a month.

I think the new Zelda was pretty much bought by the people who already own Gamecubes. The numbers won't be booming for long, but after the price drops of the systems (that I believe will happen at E3) I'm sure Zelda will sell more copies.

That is an insane amount of sold copies of Zelda in a week.
