Goldeneye sells big on Wii, outperforms Blood Stone

Eurocoms hypermodern update of the Bond classic proves its success as the best 007 game on the market right now.

The Wii-only shooter trumped it’s HD brother, which has received mixed reviews and poor sales despite being a multi-platform title. Goldeneye 007 has gone on to sell twice the volume of units as Bloodstone – no small feat for a single-platform title at the start of another insanely packed roster of titles this holiday season.

Whilst Activision and Eurocom are no doubt happy with the performance of the title, so too are Nintendo who have backed the game as a high profile core-focussed franchise and went as far to include the third-party project as part of their E3 presser earlier this year.

Speaking to gaming mag MCV, Nintendo UK’s Rob Saunders was delighted at the success of the reborn Bond title – “The sales of GoldenEye show that these titles can and do perform well on Wii – the idea that Wii owners are only after smaller mini-game compilations or first-party titles isn’t true. A good quality title, supported well by both publisher and retail, has just as much chance of performing well as any Nintendo title.”
