Noooo, the cheaper and established console sold more than the newer and more recent one?

Tell me more!

Limited supply. Also, combine Wii U, Wii and 3DS and Nintendo still sold more units.

Good luck.

If only there were some ways for videogame companies to make revenue other than charging for online play!

Like, I dunno, selling games.

Just keep believing that from Reggie. You know, the same person who stated that Black Ops 2 on Wii U looks 'dramatically better'

Wii U: 400,000 units
360: 750,000 units

Nearly 2 to 1


Wii U was limited by stock and 360 is at its most popular in America.

If we compare holiday sales of Wii U and 360 in Japan it will be dozens of times greater then 2-1 in favor of Wii U........


Limited stock my ass.

They're everywhere where I'm at.

Could walk in just about any store in my area side GS, and find one.

Not saying it's like this in other places, but limited stock probably isn't the problem.

Well, the Wii U DID just launch...but that is still pretty bad. I mean, the 360 has been out for 7 years. I'd assume that most of the buyers were for 'new' gamers and considering Nintendo is still seen as a younger demographic....

You're telling me that a console with an established gaming library outsold a brand new one with games that are in only their launch line up? You don't say! Also helps that most bundles were about 150 - 100 bucks cheaper then the wii U.
