NPD: Splinter Cell: Blacklist Wii U Apparently Accounts For Less Than 2% Of Total Sales

splinter_cell_blacklist_large

NeoGaf user CreamSugar, who is generally right about NPD sales figures, says that Splinter Cell: Blacklist for Wii U only accounted for 1.6% of total sales for the well-received stealth title. The Xbox 360 version of the game accounted for 70% of the total sales. This would mean the Wii U version only sold around 5,000 copies, which is a dire amount if correct. Hopefully this won’t deter Ubisoft for releasing other AAA titles on the platform.

      1. I think you are expressing your point the wrong way. Splinter cell is a great game but we can’t coup up with less content for the same price. Rayman should send them 2 messages.
        1. Good great ports sells and the bad message.
        2. Only platformes sells wich could be a plus if they start making 3d platformers again.

        1. I get what you’re saying. Maybe I over reacted, but the more this happens, the less likely we will get non-Nintendo games and may even see a drop in Indie support. We may not like all the games and may not get the full versions (which is shitty) but the fact Developers are investing in the WiiU at all with a small install base and knowledge of the PS4′s potential, we’re in real danger of not seeing Dev support.

      2. Rayman Legends sold better on Wii U… so yeah… Maybe Ubisoft should fix their strategies a little instead of just breaking their deals with Nintendo.

    1. Exactly! if developers want their games to sell on the wii u then they should actually take the time to work all the bugs out of them and make sure they have everything that the other versions have. the reason why i haven’t gotten it yet is because of all the complaints of all the bugs in it, even after their recent patch, and they didn’t even have same system co-op which you would think would be very easy to do for the wii u. Maybe when the game gets down to the price it really should be then i will get it, but only after they fix the issues that are still plaguing it.

      Step up your game developers and stop putting out haft assed, untested, ports and actually make some real games.

      1. I’m calling BS on this! Usualy the size of the miiverse community roughly equates to about 1/4 of the games sales. It pretty much always works out that way for what ever strange reason. Splinter cell USA community is over 9000! Putting the game at roughly over 30,000

        Whilst this logic seems silly and completely random. This correlation of 1/4 miiverse size (roughly) to total games sold has been seen over and over,

      2. Well, the game is not fast paced fps, so might be why its not selling in America.
        Other point would be it was kind of gimped, Gamepad features just cant make up for the loss of offline co-op, which was really must have with small online community Wii U has.

        I just hope they wont start gimping Watch_Dogs or Ass Creed 4.

      1. Catch-22. Don’t buy the games and the devs are even less likely to support the system in the future. Even with an insignificant loss of certain features, if more people go the game, then devs would be more inclined to make a complete game for the system in the future.

            However, if gamers were really concerned about getting better and more complete support, they would still support the games that are being released now, even if they have some insignificant differences to other versions. Bearing through these few titles with more consumer support will open the gates to devs putting more faith into the system and giving more complete games and more resources put into Wii U development.

      Seriously its why i own and game on all platforms, because i love to game, i dont miss nothing, i just wish more nintendo gamers would start to play other games besides just nintendo games and plat-formers!
      Ubisoft has supported wii u allot, and yes black list had local co-op missing but maybe if more people bought the game they would have patched it in later, even without it its still a great game brimming with content, it has online co-op, online pvp, it has a decent single player, and most important its the definitive console version of the game and not just another lazy port!

      Nobody bothered to buy need for speed most wanted on wii u either, and that too was the best on wii u,the developers took their time to give wii u a great version, and still nintendo fan-boys didn’t bother with it, its annoying as hell!
      I own all platforms so for me i can easily play these games on my PS3,PC,OR 360, but i want to play them on my wii u, but these damn lazy third party devs and lazy pretendo fan-boys are just getting on my nerves, these new age nintendo fans dont have a clue, i have been playing nintendo since they first started, and believe me we need more third party support, and its up to us to support the good developers!

      hell i saw so many cry babies saying lets boycott black list because Michael ironside isn’t doing the voice of sam fisher, how sad is that?
      I loved the guy too, but come off it, you cant be a real fan of the franchise if your willing to not play a great entry into the franchise just because of a voice over!

  6. Look at them, you just have to read all the comments above to understand this mentality that the Nintendo babies have. They only make excuses when a game doesn’t sell well on their baby console of choice.

    They make excuses too because of the poor sales of the wonderful 101. Babies said they value gameplay over graphics yet a game like the wonderful 101 has sold pathetically in Japan (and it will be the same in the West). If a game doesn’t sell well they say the game is crap, so under their logic the wonderful 101 is also crap. This is the reason why the Wii U will get an influx of shovelware baby games just like the Wii did. Gameplay actually isn’t valued by them. Any innovative new type of game like the wonderful 101 isn’t appreciated by these babies.

    The other excuse the babies give is “everybody knows that nobody buys a Nintendo console for 3rd parties”. Under this idiotic logic that they have, why is any 3rd party developer going to bother making games for the Wii U.

    The truth is that these babies only want Mario and Pokemon games. Bring them the baby games, the same iteration of the same game year after year after year and they will buy it.

    Also want to point out that eb games, or gamestop barely had any copies, and when they did, they only had a couple, so even if people wanted to buy at retail, they couldnt.

    funny enough, i also saw more than a few posts on miiverse claiming that gamestop employees were trying to convince people to not buy the wiiu version, saying it was the worst edition and such. one guy took it to the manager and got a $50 credit on his next purchase. now obviously, he could be lying, but i saw multiple posts like that on miiverse. so maybe there’s something to it. if so, thats disgusting, those reps are there to sell games, not persuade people to buy certain versions, unless they are….i dunno, but its ignorant as hell.

It must be selling well on the eshop than? Also, that means that the PS3 has only sold less than 28 percent of the sales as well, which according to this would put it at 140000 units, and for a system that has 80 million units on the market that’s a .175% adoption rate… On the Wii U it’s .142% adoption rate, so essentially the same percentage as the PS3. Of course that’s going off the numbers stated by the NPD, but not counting any online purchases apparently.

After all if it wasn’t true, why didn’t W101 ever make top ten? Fuck you Nintendo sesame street players! Because of you kids, Platinum is no longer interested in making a fucking StarFox. You kids need to buy some fucking Wii U games besides Nintendo’s.

    1. and yet more bullshit from you
      nsmbu is tough as rocks as usual.. as is rayman legends
      both sold very well on the wii u

      splinter cell on the other hand has been dumbed down beyond recognition in recent years.. the first couple games were easy.. the latest releases have all been casualised

          1. zombi u was also unfinished because ubisoft, in a stroke of pure intelligence, decided to completely revamp the game one year prior to release
            and just because a game is hard that won’t result in great sales.. how stupid ist that?

              After all you brought up the more difficult a game is the better it sells yet you tried playing dumb in thinking I brought it up. After all according to you then W101 shouldn’t be a flop. Proofs majority of Wii U owners prefer easy games.

    2. seriously, im going to buy AC4 black flag when it goes on sale, like Ubisoft games always get cut in half in a couple of months and they also always have really good sales that make it 30$.

      If you guys see these ubisoft games on sale for 20-30$ in the future(which doesnt take long) and dont get them, that just proves that you wont buy anything not nintendo.

      thats what i did for need for speed most wanted u, 30$. not bad but 60$ no thats a rip off.

      im also waiting for nintendo titles like pikmin to go down, because that game isnt worth 60$ either!!!!! stupid nintendo titles never drop price though, thats how they get you…..

      seriously these people wouldnt buy AC4 watchdogs or SC even when they hit 20-30$ in 6 months or in a sale earlier.

      only some games are worth 60$ to me, X, GTA (most rockstar games) name a few. most 3rs parties drop the price by half in like 4 months and thats when to buy if not at launch, better than nothing. all the uncharteds, got them all for 20$ why because they fucking drop down in a year and the replay value isnt high at all.

      be smart with your money folks or unless you just wont but any 3rd party games like he said above, which i think you dont.

      most 3rd parties are the games that drop price, or have really good sale, like 6 months ago got far cry 3 for only 30$ where fucking NSMB wii was still full price!!!!

  22. Wii U’s install base has nothing to do with why Splinter Cell sold poorly on Wii U. After all once upon a fucking time Pikmin 3 outsold the last of Us. yet PS3′s install base is much bigger. You Nintendo fans make excuses for everything. And because SC sold so poorly on Wii U, it decreases the chance of GTA v coming to Wii U. You keep on boycotting 3rd party tittles. All that’s going to be left is Wii Party you and Mario games.

            1. yes incomplete
              and it’s not lacking online it’s lacking offline coop which is actually a very popular game mode on consoles.. imagine that

              maybe you should look up the definition of incomplete in a dictionary

              ” And what you got to say if other 3rd parties avoid Wii u by looking who buys what from which console?”

              other 3rd parties with half a brain will realize that customers are reluctant to buy incomplete games

              all the ones that don’t or are just looking for excuses not to bring their games to the platform can go kiss my ass for all i’m concerned, not much to expect from them anyway

  23. And didn’t Pikmin 3 come in second after Mine craft for Xbox. Yet you guys want to play dumb and assume about half of Wii U owners bought Splinter Cell. Splinter cell and GTA V could have changed that old kiddy Nintendo reputation. So next time a Sony drone or Xbox fan boy attacks on this site as Nintendo is for kids, shut the fuck up because you could have done something about it if you purchased what few 3rd party tittles Wii U had.

  25. It irks me that people always complain and find excuses for not buying a good game. Yet in reality, if you look at their game library- there aren’t any at all. You will just see NSMBU, Nintendo Land, Lego City Undercover and Pikmin 3. You won’t even see W101, Batman or Zombi U. Some don’t even own a Wii U and whine (unless you can’t afford it at the moment but I highly doubt that, there were series of sales that happpened). Where do you base your opinions if you haven’t experience it by yourself? SUPPORT A GOOD 3RD PARTY GAME! It will be better for all of us in the end.

  26. i got broad of splinter cell and most 1st persons, i have not played this one yet will see what it is like before i say anything bad about it. all i can say is is about 5000 copies sold in a month in depress i mean that is not even 0.5% i don’t think, it is not surprising that is sold 69% of its sales on Xbox it is the console of the the first person shoot and sports game. but say that i think i might get this game if its any good

      1. Its different from COD where you can just run around shooting people. This one is more stealthy and strategic. Finding an online game is a little bit hard but they recently patched it. It is the first Wii U game that makes use of the gamepad for online chat when you are doing a coop mission or spy vs. mercs so you do not need to buy a headset. The use of gamepad alone through chat makes it really fun. I played a few games where I was instructing the other guy to take on the enemies while I hack the security or where we go separate ways and meet at the extraction point. But everyone has their own tastes so i suggest you go to a friend’s house and try it yourself.

  31. Son of a bitch!!!! This is exactly what I was worried about. You honestly think we are going to get any motherfucking support now with shit sales like this. I would be absolutely pissed if I were Ubisoft. I mean they delayed the game just so they could put it on a Wii U and just cut only ONE feature so the Wii U version would arrive on time. Wii U owners are a bunch of whiney morons that don’t realize that they are killing their own system by petty things being taken out for a good reason. I understand not wanting watered down ports like Sniper Elite V2 but this is bullshit! It’s not even like Nintendo is supporting the Wii U that much either so what do you think is going to happen? We have a dead fucking system on our hands. Don’t say I didn’t fucking warn all of you assholes.

          1. Lets see.. Wii U makes up 2% of the 3 consoles install bas that Splinter cell released on.. and it sold 2% of the over all sales.. That means sales tracked right on target with install base vs game sales.. So the same percent of Wii U console owners bought this game as the other consoles. I’d say that speaks enough to say it has nothing to do with the false kiddie perception. The fact that Rayman sold more on Wii U and the Splinter cell sales track on target with other consoles.. Just means Wii U owners are more Diverse in games they play not needing just violence and interactive movie games, but rather look for something more in there games. Sorry Xbox.. I’ve out grown you.
