Keep in mind that Nintendo tends to under produce their systems on release (or at least under distribute them) to create a sense of artificial scarcity. I assume it's to create a buzz and want, not to create a way for jackasses on ebay to create bank.

If I'm not mistaken, XBOX also got a 50$ price cut.

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


Wrong, as usual. But let me use your troll logic against you.

"Linetrix: When I tell someone on gamefaqs to kill themselves, I am never punished for it. I was a mod at another forum where I've done the same thing for years, yet I never got punished for it. When called out on my creepy, abusive bully ways, I deny, deny, deny, like a good little politician. I get away with murder and there's nothing you can do about it! Please take me seriously in debates. lol!"

Wait, we are going to factor in price? When the Wii was outselling the PS3 and 360, where were people saying that it was because of it's price? Flip flop Nintendo fanboys, flip flop


People like you were saying the Wii only sold due to price. If you're going to call anyone out on flip flopping, don't forget to look in the mirror, bro.

To begin...what hype? The Wii U had and still has no hype--those mentioning "hype" are clearly deluded to the launch of this system. Lack of launch titles? Are most of you twelve, missing the launch of every other home console in existence? The Wii U is out for a week, it sells better than the 360 and PS3 in their first weeks, though we will compare the sales of the Wii U to a system which has been upgraded like three or four times now and is targeting a casual audience with cheaper prices and Kinect? Now I know why the United States has so many problems.

Than again, our Target store went into black friday with twice as many 360s as wii us- Xbox was a door buster at 60$ off where as wii u wasn't on sale or even really advertised, and xbox has easily 20-30 fold the amount of games out as wii u..

I know it's already been said, but I couldn't go anywhere online or retail without tripping over 360's that were on sale. To the average Black Friday shopper that's a lot more appealing than a full priced system with limited games. This shouldn't be a shock to anyone.

wii u sold out so it had less of a supply then the 360 did

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

Nearly 2 to 1


Is it a coincidence that the price difference is also 2 to 1?

You can buy two 360's for the price of one Wii U.

Hmmm...
