a 300-350 dollar price tag with barely any killer apps VS a 7 year old system with a reduced price for blk friday plus a huge library of (third party) games.

WHO CARES???

750K dummies who dont realize the PS3/Wii/WiiU has free online and that you'll have to buy a separate hard drive just to play Halo online.


Wii online is so bad I wouldn't even consider it an online...

and who bought a hard drive to play Halo? Why wouldn't you just use a flash drive?

I actually see this as a positive really. This might be enough incentive for Nintendo to drop the price early again. I hope they drop it down to 200, then I'm damn sure getting one.


I just hope they offer better and newer games in their Wii U Ambassador program.

Right, obviously it has Halo 4 and was $150 during black friday.

The wii u was double the cost and in short supply, while the 360's are still bundled in large pyramids in stores.

Dont get me wrong, i love my 360, but you are talking a big price gap.

The week before it sold roughly 200k

The 360 has a huge software library at this point, it's pretty much how the PS2 was at the start of the this generation; it was still selling relatively well and had a lot of quality, cheap titles.

lets do some simple math here:

looking at some black friday xbox deals there were 3 different price points:

199
149
249

if you add them and average them you get 199




199x750k = $149,250,000




the wii u comes in 2 price points

300
350

if you average them out you get 315

315x400k $126,000,000

so even at double the sales microsoft only made 23 million dollars more than nintendo.

not that impressive really. especially since if you add in wii/ds/3ds sales nintendo would have made more money.

2013 Black Friday they are launching SMBU

You will see the Wii U sales so i expect you b!tch to make a post and how the Wii U alone outsaled the PS and Xbox. Wether they be 4, durango or whatever.


Are the Playstation and the Xbox still commercialized?

LMAO @ "outsaled".

Console that's been out for a long time with a massive library of games vs a console that just came out, isn't readily available everywhere, much smaller library of games and no sale going on for it..


Uhmmm, duh?

Not to mention nintendo pushed more consoles than any other system.
