To me it seems like it will do very well! Especially nearing the holidays, and as of right now I cannot find one place online to preorder the system. There is only 1 store nearby my house that has preorders available and its only for the white system.

Of course this doesn't unnecessarily predict how it will do in the future but it looks like it is going for a good start!

Yes. The 720 and PS4 are coming soon and they will be beast machines.

The 720 will have the 6670 and the PS4 will have the A10 + 6670, very high end parts that the Wii U won't be able to compete with.

Of course its going to do well, even if it doesnt i doubt it would even consider a flop. This is Nintendo we are talking about they know what they are doing and support their system through and through. Only once they have failed with a system, and it was obvious why that failed. With the WiiU it seems buyers are into, pre-orders are sold out and shipment in general seems to be so that people dont have to wait as long as they did with the Wii.

All in all i dont even see how people can even think this might fail/flop. people are buying the system despite it not being out yet, devs are making games/apps for this system. so how exactly does that even consider a system might fail?

Honestly I don't see Next box and PS4 being a great deal better then PS3 and 360.

It will flop in sales BIG TIME. Wii succeeded because it catered to casuals and it was priced cheap. The Wii U does neither; why would any casual person by a Wii U, when they already have the Wii? Also, the price was higher than the Wii's. Furthermore, Nintendo has abandoned hardcore gamers and most of them have learned from their mistakes of buying a gimmicky console.
