launch sales are only relevant depending on the number of shipments.

There are no wiU games that have sold 400k I can assure you. I think only Launch title to have a ridiculously high attah rate was TP on Wii.

NSMBU will sell million in the long run but The short term ratio for that would be much lower than that of Zelda.

Shocked dumbwich was a few minutes late to this party. Figured he was hitting refresh nonstop on google so he could twist these numbers to look bad. You're getting weak in your trolling lol. maybe you should sleep?

Hmm it managed to do alright although it's a bit scary if it's still in stock everywhere right now considering:

+ It Launched near Black Friday
+ It Launched with an immensely popular Mario series.
+ It Launched with a decent sized and varied line-up.
+ It Launched at the end of the longest video game generation.
+ Tech is easily marketable to the casual audience
+ It's Launching off the high point of the Wii, the highest selling console of last generation.


I have very little idea if anyone has said it already but it' hard to gauge sales totally on launch numbers, since usually only the more hardcore fans buy Video games consoles at launch.Let's wait and see what the Wii-U does in the next three to six months before making any absolutes here.

Edit: Whoops I posted seriously on GameFAQs. ERROR ERROR patch in fanboy comment. I hope Nintendo is last place next gen.

Still available for purchase in my area, he is quoting the number nintendo has shipped to retailers not sold thru in stores. I'd still expect to be pretty hard to find right before Xmas though.


Actually he was saying how many were actually sold not shipped. They stated that 1.2 million units of hardware were sold and just over 400,000 of it was Wii U's. He also stated that the DS outpaced the 3DS that week because the DS was marked for Black Friday and the 3DS was not; with 275,000 DS sales and 250,000 3DS sales. The Wii sold around 300,000 units.


They always quote shipped numbers, because its a sale for them.


You got Sony and Nintendo mixed up.


Ok, every single vendor period quotes shipped numbers....

Reading through this is confusing... Is this good news or bad?

i would thought 400,000 is pretty decent by any standard

It is. Only behind Wii and PS2. I am not saying it will keep up week to week or even next week, but it is a good start

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


Or you can sit back and think for a second.

~Nintendo sold out: retailers bought their inventory = true.

~From retailer to costumer: You can go to stores and still find it, therefore it's not sold out to customers = true.

Easy.
