I only saw a troll topic which didn't really transmit the correct news.

edit: But I've clearly missed a few. Will lock.

edit2: Or maybe I won't... Can't remember how, or if it was possible. Anyway just don't post.

"On November 28, 2006, Nintendo reported that it had sold over 600,000 consoles in the first eight days of launch in the Americas. "

"The Wii U sold 425,000 units during its US launch week, Nintendo has revealed. That's just 5000 less than the Wii recorded six years ago."

Sorry, what now? Someones dumb? Oh yeah, people using fake statistics to make it seem like it's doing better than it really is :O

Click "message details" and then click the "Close Topic" button. But I believe you can only do that if you have high enough rank.

I guess you are the dumb one. <_<
The 600,000 is from the Americas (i.e. the continent) and the other number is just the US sales.

Yeah, hate to break this to you, things don't sell mass amounts in Canada to make some profound difference. And this is coming from a guy that lives in Canada. If something sells 425k in the US, it sells like 30-40k up here.

Besides, we generally get lumped together under "US Sales" because most of the world is ignorant of the fact that Canada even exists.

Also, there are other reports fudging these numbers

And besides, this one confirms what I said, as do most others

The 425,000 is for NA, as is the 600k. It did not sell as well as the original Wii.
