Default N-Gage has disappointing first week

How did Nokia's N-Gage game deck fare in its first week on store shelves? Well, it depends who you ask.

Nokia hasn't yet released their figures, but according to 1Up, a site belonging to special interest media company Ziff Davis, the device sold fewer than 5,000 units in the U.S. in its first week, including pre-orders. Compare that to the nearly 100,000 GameBoy Advance SP devices that were sold in its first week and you begin to get an idea of how poorly the N-Gage has done thus far.

Interest in the U.K. for the N-Gage has been just as scant. The Register reports that "videogame retailers around the UK are showing an extremely low sell-through of Nokia's new N-Gage game deck in its launch week, with fewer than 500 units sold by the 6000 game stores polled." According to the Register, Nintendo's GameBoy Advance outsold the N-Gage last week in the UK by a ratio of 30 to 1.

In a possible attempt to put some spin on all the bad press the device has received since its unveiling at this year's E3, and its eventual release last week, Nokia has announced that they are in fact "very pleased with the handheld's initial sales" saying that many retailers sold out on the first day of the device's release.

Sounds like Nokia is having a hard time accepting that its N-Gage was dead on arrival.

Well I can see why it did so bad when its selling for $450 CDN. Who in the right mind would buy a handheld system for $450? I know I wouldn't...

I wouldn't be caught dead with that overpriced gimmicky piece of shit. Apparantly, I'm not the only one. That thing was doomed on arrival. I wonder who the fuck the idiots are that bought them are? Prolly some exec who thinks it's the "cool new hip groovy" thing to own. Idiots...

I've heard that it's already $199 at Gamestop, or is going to be soon, to blow through their inventory.

I took a look of the system. Meh nothing that most units do nowadays. But I saw that you can play online with other users.

Well apparently thats Nokia's goal. So far the games they have released for it are not online games but soon enough they will release several.
