Call of Duty: World at War bombs on Wii, DS

Were you wondering how well Call of Duty: World at War sold on the Wii and DS thus far? You would think that some decent sales would come in, thanks to Wii-specific advertising, and the game topping sales charts all around the world. Well…you would be wrong for thinking that, just as I have been.

The Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty: World at War led the way with 1.41 million units sold. The PS3 version performed admirably, with nearly 600,000 sold. The PS2, PC, DS and Wii versions of Call of Duty: World at War, however, sold only about 200,000 units combined, something that is surely disappointing to Activision considering the advertising specifically targeting the Wii version of the game and Call of Duty’s origin as a PC title.

Alright Wii owners, lay it on me. Why did you stay away from World at War? Did you pick the game up for 360 or PS3 instead? Are you tired of the WWII games? Did you think the game would be lackluster? I am really at a loss here…
