20 July 2009
Last week, the Wii first-person shooter The Conduit debuted in Europe, and was the 29th most bought game in Britain. This week, new sales charts from the group Chart Track have shown that The Conduit is no longer in the Top 40. It is possible that the game, like many games released for Nintendo consoles, will be an "evergreen", meaning that it makes up its sales overtime as opposed to other games which spike in the first week of sales and dramatically decrease. The fact that it lasted only one week on the charts (technically one day, since the week charted ended the day after its release), could also mean that the game will not sell as well as expected or hoped and anyone who wanted to buy it had purchased it within the first week.
