A Serious Nintendo Wii Problem

January 22, 2010

     On January 4, 2010, I said, “I find it pretty crazy that Amazon.com can’t keep New Super Mario Bros. Wii…in stock.  Amazon.com just yesterday, January 3, had New Super Mario Bros. Wii back in stock, and sold out between last night and today.”  I finished my “Thoughts” by saying, “If New Super Mario Bros. Wii didn’t sell 4.7 million copies in December, Nintendo has a serious problem with meeting demand.  The reason I say that is because Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 sold 4.7 million copies, just on release day.”
Well, instead of the 4.7 million units, the number I should have used was 6.07 million units for the entire month.

Asking a Question:
Did New Super Mario Bros. Wii sell 6.07, or even 4.7, million units in December?  If not, why not?

Doing Background Research:
     Looking at the NPD sales data for December 2009, New Super Mario Bros. Wii sold 2.82 million units in December.  While those are great numbers, they should have been better.
     Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 sold 2.75 million units combining the PS3 and Xbox 360 sales for December.
     Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s total sales for November/December were 8.82 million units combined, on the PS3 and Xbox 360 not including PC sales.
     New Super Mario Bros. Wii ‘s total sales for November/December was 4.21 million units.
     According to the NPD’s numbers, New Super Mario Bros. Wii was still 4.61 million units behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s console sales at the end of December.

One major reason New Super Mario Bros. Wii sold only 2.82 million units in December:

     The week before Christmas, I went by Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and Game Stop and none of the stores had New Super Mario Bros. Wii in stock!  When checking the websites during December, New Super Mario Bros. Wii was either “backordered” or “out-of-stock”, as it was for almost the entire last half of December(the picture above shows some of the sites).
     I believe the reason that New Super Mario Bros. Wii sold only 2.82 million units in December is because people couldn’t find the game!

     Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was never “out-of-stock” or “backordered” on the websites when I was checking on New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

Nintendo’s Serious Wii Problem:
     I think one of Nintendo’s largest problems is publishing and shipping games.  New Super Mario Bros. Wii isn’t the only game that’s had this problem from Nintendo.  Wii Sports Resort and Wii Fit Plus have also been “out-of-stock” or “backordered” at different times recently.
     I don’t understand how Nintendo’s biggest game for the holiday season of 2009 was continuously “out-of-stock” or “backordered”, and it sold only 4.21 million units in November and December.
I could understand New Super Mario Bros. Wii being “out-of-stock” and “backordered” if it had sold more than 6.07 million copies in December, but it didn’t.
     If Activision-Blizzard was able to ship/sell 8.82 million copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 during the holidays on two consoles, I don’t see any reason why Nintendo couldn’t do the same.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii should never have been “out-of-stock” or “backordered” at any point during the holidays with the sales that have been reported for it.

Questions:
Do you think Nintendo has a production/shipping problem?  Or do you think Nintendo shipped smaller numbers of the game on purpose?
Do you think there is any justifiable excuse for New Super Mario Bros. Wii to have been “out-of-stock” or “backordered” during the holidays, when it sold less than half the copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2?
