Congrats on a great start Nintendo! You're 1/4th of the way to Vita's totals already, and made more money than the Wii launch! Positive word of mouth should help this be yet another success for Nintendo. I love that they keep making the doubters look stupid!

Of course they made more money than the Wii launch, the Wii U is 50 to 100 bucks more than the Wii, LOL

Oh, so NOW you want to use logic. It sold more than twice as much as the PS3 did it's launch month...is that better?

I'm guessing that's only in America and Day 1 of the EU's sales too.

Couple more facts...

Wii U outsold the 360's launch week!

And New Mario U outsold the PS3 in it's launch week!

This is only US numbers, no UK.

Using logic on GFAQ's? Are you mad!?
425,000 is a great number and it hasn't even launched in Japan yet.

Gamecube and Wii sold better on their first weeks, so this is a step down for Nintendo

Xbox 360 sold 300000 more consoles than Wii U did on its launch week

Wii sold only 100000 less than Wii U did on its launch week

try to spin it all you want, but Wii U had a bad launch even before you bring up the widely reported technical problems

yeah, I know your go to response for the Xbox 360 example: "durr, it had Black Friday sales and is cheaper!" yes, it's sad that Wii U is less enticing than a seven year old console that's about to have its successor announced next E3, isn't it?

PS3 was over priced garbage, your point?

but PS2 sold more than the Wii U it's first weekend

Since you're comparing sales to previous generations, is that better?

and the Gamecube, and Wii sold more than the Wii U as well, since we're comparing
