Default Exclusives Matter Again! Ninty has sold more exclusives in the last 4 years than any1

*By retail I mean games released to retail shelves. They could've also sold more exclusives in general but they don't mention that.

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1178630



Q3 FY2016 sales/LTD sales:

*Splatoon - 1,640,000 / 4,060,000
*Super Mario Maker - 1,510,000 / 3,340,000
*Yoshi's Woolly World - 1,310,000 / 1,310,000
Mario Kart 8 - 1,370,000 / 7,240,000
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U - 580,000 / 4,610,000
New Super Mario Bros. U - 200,000 / 5,080,000
Super Mario 3D World - 160,000 / 4,630,000
New Super Luigi U - 150,000 / 2,420,000
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD - 70,000 / 1,690,000
Nintendo Land - 20,000 / 5,020,000

*2015 exclusives.

This doesn't take into account the handful of other exclusives that sold under 1m units in 2015 (Xenoblade X has sold over 500k WW).

So I guess XBOTS are right, exclusives do matter... To companies that actually seem to be selling exclusives.

the beauty of recycling your franchises every few years.
however, don't fix what isn't broken

Except that Splatoon is last year's highest selling new, exclusive IP. Hell, it might actually be 2015's highest selling exclusive, since we have no idea how much Halo 5 sold.

I suppose this thread is meant to deflect PS4’s lack of exclusives…

all but one title out of 15 in that list is a new IP. nintendo owes their continued existence to a handful of characters, which is fine

plus, this is all a testament to how barren the 3rd party landscape is on WiiU

Hmmm, pretty sure this statement is inaccurate.

Also, I think your post is meant to deflect the XB's lack of exclusive sales.

We dont know how much halo 5 sold now?? Here I was thinking that we did, even after I pointed that units sold via digital or bundles were not factored into the final totals... so if we dont know how many halo5s sold, how do know it sold less than all other halos previously??

I could tell you, but you'd just go on for pages...not understanding.

Pretty much. They better be selling more exclusives, that's all they have.
