But would they? Thing is, yeah it probably would have sold a little more but would it have been a huge success? On the Wii, it wasn't competing against the likes of Gears Of War etc. But on the 360, it would've had achievements and possibly some kind of online multiplayer....whatever people say about achievements/trophies, they are popular with a lot of gamers and do help to sell certain titles.
We will never know really.
As for Chibi Robo, I think it's a great game and one I thoroughly enjoyed playing through start to finish despite a couple of minor niggles, but I also still think it's a niche title. As I've said elsewhere, it reminds me a lot of Toy Commander (which is actually my favourite game on the DC) and Toy Commander wasn't a massive seller on Dreamcast despite being a launch title. I did at one point speculate that a Wii port of Toy Commander may have sold better but in hindsight, I'm not so sure. Pikmin didn't really fare any better when it was ported to the Wii, although that could've been as much to do with the lousy, unappealing 'New Play Control!' boxart as much as anything else.
