    Without Zelda

    Would wii have sold if Zelda did not exist. I mean part of what sold wii's had to be the fact that Zelda released the same day that wii did. If Zelda did not release what could have been their release game and would it have sold?

    It would be... Red Steel!! Just kidding. Of course, in an alternate dimension where Zelda didn't exist, Red Steel could have been developed differently so a majority of players like it.

    Red Steel was rushed, that's why theres a few problems.

    *If* Zelda did not exist then maybe more effort would of been put into having one of the other flagship products ready; Galaxy and Metroid. Which will both boost sales even more if people can find Wiis by the time these games are released. I think although they're still being worked on the time of when they come out is strategical now.

    Zelda didn't sell the console to me or most people. Wii Sports is what featured in every press and media support that gained it such widespread attention and now popularity.

    Zelda was a major influence for me. Without it I would have bought more GC games. Ironically I would have bought Zelda Windwaker. Remember not all of us owned a GC before the Wii came out. It was like getting 2 systems.

    I think it would of sold very well anyway, but I wouldn't have bought it yet.

    This is a very good idea for a thread. I think you will find that not in all regions zelda was the top selling game so i think yes it would have still been a great success maybe not as good as it is but still not bad.
    If You Add My Wii Code, Please PM me with your code so i can add you. THANKS

    the mass public was not influenced to buy a wii by the fact that there was a zelda game to go along with it. someone (either 1-up.com or IGN or somebody, i can't remember who) said that sales records show that surprisingly Zelda was not a hardware moving title. In other words, most people that bought a Wii didn't buy Zelda with it, it seemingly was bought as an after thought a week or more later. Most bought it just to have it, or to play wii sports or both.
