Yikes? That's only 25K less than the Wii, and under 15K less than the 3DS. Both of them are massive successes. This isn't bad news at all.


The wii had a lack of games hardcore fans wanted. no F-zero, no star fox, no pikmin. gamers had to plead for games to be ported from japan.

The 3DS was selling so poorly, nintendo did its largest price cut, ever.


These are massive successes in your eyes?


They still sold more than all the other consoles launch week. So yes it is a success.

The Xbox 360 sold 350k units in two weeks.

^ Defend that.

most of these sales were also to ebay resellers


Indeed, wish NPD would track returns.

they sold 400k in the US, another 400 in the Uk. are you guys expecting millions of units in the first week?


It sold 40k in the UK, not 400k


The only reason you wish it would track returns is if you were hoping for the failure of the Wii U. Doesn't that make you a troll?

"It sold 40,000 in the UK launch week"
As of today Dec 7th. It's been out 1 week. Hve you figures for an ACTUAL week or just 1 or 2 days?
It's also 300 odd in the UK. That's a hefty price.

Trolls are the most childish thing and worst thing the internet has ever spawned. I LONG for the early days of the internet where sados like this didn't yet exist.

People are two faced and cowardly and instead of talking behind each others backs like they would in real life, they come here as faceless a holes who like to try and tear down things that strangers enjoy. It's very weird how people spend their free time lol.

Not well since Japanese are all about PC and Arcades

In 2 days we will find out, though I don't think it will be the super seller that people here think it will be.
