[N64] Sin and Punishment: Successor of the Earth (Nintendo) - 22.536 / 37.918 / 59,43% 21/11/00
[WII] Sin and Punishment: Star Successor (Nintendo) - 10.476 / 19.951 / 52,51% 29/10/09

However, Kid Icarus will do MUCH better than the two S&P
And you assume this based on? That Japanese gamers are easily duped into buying games in genres they're not interested in?

What was Wii's installed base when it did those S&P2 numbers? You can bet it was far higher than 3DS's current base.

S&P2 was also in a different genre from Kid Icarus: Uprising with less marketing and less IP awareness.

Install base has little to do with it, it's more about positioning and pedigree. I think Star Fox 64 3D probably makes for a better comparison anyway, though even that's not great.

Hopefully it will be a wake up call for SCEJ.

An old, overpriced console with 1 new release this year selling better than the next Sony portable would be very laughable



Also this.
well that old console has more games , it's cheaper & is more well known.
