Specifically in Japan? After the N64 didn't do well in the homeland, there's reason to worry. A new poll shows some hope though...
Famitsu Weekly talked to the retailers and game companies about the predicted sales success of Dolphin. IGN64 has the results.
Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu Weekly recently conducted a survey in which a number of respected game companies and retailers were asked the following question: How well do you think Dolphin will sell?
It will sell very well. -- 3.2% It well sell pretty good. -- 41.9% It won't sell very well. -- 17.8% It won't sell at all. -- 1.6% Not sure yet. -- 33.9% No response. -- 1.6%
Close to 45% of those surveyed have a very positive outlook for Nintendo's next-generation machine, with another 33.9% still unsure one way or the other. This is not a bad tally, especially when we consider that virtually no details or information for Dolphin have been released yet.
