It's not really going to get any better. No one is running to the stores to grab that mind blowing NSMBU.


PS3 ring any bells?

Almost feel bad for these guys, PSP sold more in three days at launch in the UK then the Wii U sold in it's entire week of all of Europe...

It did better than the 360 and PS3 launches.


6-7 years ago is the best you can use as a defense? Too bad it can barely do what those same consoles did at launch: Be better than the previous gen systems of the competitors.

And shortages in UK had nothing to do with it?

That's why it's in stock on shopto and Amazon.co.uk, right?

Face the facts guys, the Wii U didn't sell out and is really selling quite poorly in the EU. It's selling below average in the US, but nowhere near as bad as in the EU.

ORIGINAL XBOX - U.S.: 600K shipped in 3 days.

PS2 - U.S.: 500K sold and shipped in one weekend.

XBOX 360 - U.S.: 326,000 units in 2 weeks.


Try try try again, silly goose.

But the point is we are talking LAUNCH SALES. For launch sales this isn't bad, bot by a long shot when we consider it's just the US and EU numbers only.
