Only 400,000 units. Even less than the 3,000,000 Patcher predicted.

If only they had used the 6670, this wouldn't have happened.


It was capped by availability -_-


I can still find it in most stores in my area, even after Black Friday. Not an availability problem here~


ITT: A single town having Wii U's left means there are no availability issues.

Where do you live?

Nintendo say Wii U is basically sold out, and trolls are still spinning it to be bad.
Gotta love the desperation. lol.

the "trolls" aren't the desperate ones here

it's people like you clinging to Reggie's words when a local visit to your Wal-Mart will prove otherwise

3DS =/= Wii U

When did they start selling? Oh wait, when they slashed the hell out of the price

4 million rubes buying a 3DS before the price drop =/= flopping

how do you people still not get that it was all part of Nintendo's plan, forced Sony to match the price and sell Vita at a loss, etc., and the only way it failed was because the dollar to yen exchange rate prevented them from reaping profits off milking their fanboys?

That's an extremely low number of units sold for a console released a few days before Black Friday.


still did better than the 360 and ps3 in its first week.


Because they werent enough of them.

Theres plenty Wii U in the stores here and no one is rushing to buy them.


Uh no, as the MAIN ARTICLE says, it's sold out everywhere which is why it's hard to get more product out. Not enough of it...

Shouldn't be too hard to figure it out. I mean, how many bridges can there be with an internet connection?

Let me know when Nintendo stops alienating 3rd party devs and publishers with their "we're making architecture that will force you to spend more time and money than any other platform to get similar results, cuz it saves US a buck" bull**** and their total ineptness when it comes to serving developers needs with proper toolsets so they CAN make good games.

are you sure is Nintendo and not Sony who doing this with their PS3
and this is Sony their PS4 will be worse if they go the power route

You couldn't walk into a retailer and buy a Wii until spring of 2009

jesus christ. This overweight douche comes up with some ridiculous garbage doesn't he. How much does Nintendo pay him to speak out of his ass constantly?

And don't worry Reggie. You won't have that problem with Wii U. there is no way in hell it will have the same demand.
