Wii gets close to double the attach rate of the PS3 in Japan
Some of the numbers from the Wii launch in Japan have finally come in and the attach rate of the console is through the roof, destroying that of its major competitor in the region, the PS3. The Wii's attach rate comes in at 1.8, defeating Sony's measly 0.98. The top ten games, along with hardware sales, for the console were:
  • Wii hardware: 350,358
  • Wii Sports: 176,167
  • Wii Play: 174,297
  • The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess: 139,011
  • Odoru Made in Wario: 63,954
  • Swing Golf Pangya: 12,908
  • Ennichi no Tatsujin: 10,763
  • Red Steel: 9,392
  • SD Gundam SCAD Hammers: 9,226
  • Tamagotchi Pika Pika Daitouryou: 8,042
  • Elebits: 5,791
While good for Nintendo, third-parties were left out in the cold, selling very little at launch. This, of course, was one of the biggest hurdles for third-parties, and always has been, in bringing their products to Nintendo consoles. Should we expect this trend to continue in the region or will things eventually even out down the road?
