Well, WiiU's not out in Europe or Japan (I think?) yet. So wait for that first...

What? That won't change anything.

Blame Nintendo's half-assed launch with no games.


Ummm no because that is a really stupid saying. The fact of the matter is the system just launched, the freaking 360 has been out for like 7 years and have Black Friday deals on the console alone.


I guess it just goes to show that these Nintendo consoles can't sell on hype alone.

That is the ultimate proof that the Wii U is, at best, on par with the PS3/360. The difference being no games on the Wii U. Nintendo is 6 years late.

Usually new consoles sell a lot better than old hardware. That just proves Wii U will sell about the same as the Gamecube did.

Yup because clearly they are both equal in the games they offer.

Oh wait they aren't.

And the back pedaling begins...

Not really, besides 400,000 is a lot of units, but again this topic is pretty damn stupid and anyone trying to make the comparison or idea that the Wii U is bad or going to flop because of this needs to stop trying to think they know the industry.

That figures, because it would be hard for me to get a WiiU over the Limited edition Halo 4 X360 bundle for the same price. Mostly due to more games I like for the X360 already available and that nice system design.

http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Limited-Edition-Halo-Bundle/dp/B003O6JIFA

They are scalping them there, but I know some stores that still have them for the MSRP of $349.99.

That scalping is killing the Game Industry also. Specially when it's easy to know it's gamestop and clerks doing it on pre-order game stuff. like that Persona 4 Golden Complete Vita bundle.

There is no back peddling. They are comparing a 1 Week system, to that of a 7 Year system that has far more games and even had Black Friday deals on the system itself. Which if you know Black Friday people generally are jumping on the deals and not full priced products.

yeah 360's sell alot.....no suprise there.

now to see how much the new xbox will sell at it's launch....really don't see it doing bad or nothing just saying.

those numbers would be more of an accurate comparison.
