Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts Only Sells 140,000 US Copies By New Years Day

While Fable II and Gears Of War 2 were raking in the christmas gold for Microsoft, it wasn’t commercial cheer for all of their first party offerings. Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, has (at up until New Years Day), only sold 140,000 copies in the US (Worldwide figures have yet to come in but they are expected to be similarly meager) which is a disappointing figure to say the least.

Logic suggests that between the mainstream crowd who didn’t even know what Banjo Kazooie was in the first place, and die hard fans who abandoned the franchise when they saw what direction it was going in, such poor sales figures don’t come as a great surprise.

Innovation doesn’t quite translate into dosh it seems.
