I think Wallace & Gromit might do better at retail where parents might get the game for their kids, but it looks like W&G hasn't been a huge success on XBLA.. I think Sam & Max is pushing 10, 000 in sales now too
I assume W&G made its money like it should but I had the same feeling from the number of posts that it is not a smashing success. Look at the number of posts for StrongBad (I never really liked the setting in fact I hate the flash cartoon and stopped playing in the middle of ep1 due to the setting) and look at the number of posts regarding W&G and you get a similar picture. Not quite the same as Bone, but not as successful as the other series. I still do not know why, maybe at least on the PC side it really was the control scheme which has put off to many players, but that one should not reflect the console numbers. I personally like W&G and the games are brilliant, so I am not sure why.
