Wii U sells only 400000 units during Thanksgiving week? Flop?

I'd say it's a flop because there are still consoles on the shelves right now. Wii U isn't technically "sold out."


Right, it's a flop because Nintendo didn't manufacture an artificial shortage.

If the Wii U is a flop, then the 360 was a catastrophe and the PS3 was the worst thing to happen to humanity.

Wii - 600,000 first week
Wii U - 400,000 first week
Xbox 360 - 326,000 first TWO weeks
PS3 - 197,000 first TWO weeks


not an accurate comparison because people actually wanted PS3 and 360 but there was not enough supply. I couldn't find a 360 for 4 MONTHS after release.


The first week of the 360's launch, 40,000 XBox 360's were on eBay.


yes, the scalpers bought them up at retail stores and I wasn't about to pay double for a console...your point?

Alundra is the best top-down Zelda game since Link to the Past.
Darksiders is the best 3D Zelda game since Ocarina of Time.

It is my belief that they won't do that this time because they just suffered a 500 million dollar loss. This kind of strategy is not conducive this time around for them. (They can't get away with it; they are forced financially to sell as many Wii U's as possible.)

Also not accurate because we should compare two week sells to two week sells!

you also have to realize this is only a few countries you are talking about, US, canada, and mexico. We still don't have sales figures from Europe, Asia, and Australia. So once we have a good idea of how much the wiiu is selling worldwide, once the countries can buy these consoles, then we can make a fair judgement. Also, the vita started in japan with 300k sales in the first week. japan is a less populated country, so consider that. Lastly, if this pattern goes the same with other countries based on their population, wiiu will probably sell 2 mil or more by the end of the year. Think about, 3 other continents still haven't got the console yet, so imagine how much sales this could bring.
