This is also a controversial statement. The Vita has been out for only a few months, and I believe Sony can take a hit in its video game sales given it has other mediums to generate profit (TVs, laptops, etc).


Actually I'm pretty sure Sony is tanking on all fronts because other companies are creating more affordable electronics the Sony. And hell when you consider this generation with how the PS3 and Vita have done (Along side last gens PSP) it really doesn't look too good for them.

Umm what? The wii u is not technically steal. How can you compare the wii u current price to the PS3 6 years ago and then call the wii u a steal lol


Because if we go back in time and say the Wii U was what the Wii really was, at $350 in 2006 was still a better deal the $600 for a new PS3.

The wii u would not have been $350 in 2006. That is the whole reason why you cannot compare this price to the PS3 price in 2006...

I don't doubt it with how low it's selling.


Also 400,000 in just one region isn't low at all and help me god if you use "The 360 sold 750,000" I will smack you with my ring hand.


I know that 400,000 isn't an indication of how the system will be doing overall or even how it'll hold up during the holiday season. I'm just reflecting on how that, for people like me, the only thing stopping me from getting one is the price. Given the economy and other concerns, Wii Us aren't going to be a priority when there's a better deal. Take the amount of Wiis that sold over Black Friday. The large amount sold can probably be attributed to it being the cheapest of all consoles and the library of games.


Your hesitation in buying the Wii U just meant that someone else could buy it instead. The 400k that it sold wasn't low by any means. It sold out across the nation. Sure, there are likely some places where you can still get one, because it's a case by case basis, but you can't order online unless you want to spend more money for one than retail price. You can't really judge this thing until you see the stacks of these systems behind the counter at GS.

If the Vita can go this long with no price drop im sure the Wii U will not be seeing one for awhile.


This is also a controversial statement. The Vita has been out for only a few months, and I believe Sony can take a hit in its video game sales given it has other mediums to generate profit (TVs, laptops, etc).


Except the Vita is approaching 1 year in Japan and Sony is losing on all of their other mediums.

Contrary to what us gamers think. Video games are niche if push came to shove Sony could just cut SCE off to live or die on it's own and keep their Movies and Music division going

Wii U has only been out days and people a screaming flop already. Even though it had the third best launch numbers to date.

They're selling the Wii U at a loss.
It costs this much because of the controller.
Don't expect a price drop until second semester of 2013, when they announce a new Wii U model with more storage space or something else.
